I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Would love feedback here.  Power lights are on, screen is completely black.I've read other reports of this in the 900 and other Yoga models but I've never seen the solution Lenovo support offered. They said it was hardware issue, a no power-on-start issue.This is a newish computer.  What do you think the issue could be?Pressing power button for 1 minute has no effect.Using One-key recovery, no effectF9, increasing brightness, has no effect. Black dead screen, I've tried all my tricks. Nothing has worked.

I have a Gateway M685-E laptop running XP and Ubuntu, this morning when pushed the power button nothing would load.

The AC LED stays on as well as the light under the power button, while the NumLock and the CapsLock flash on then off, which might be normal.

The screen stays black but you can tell it is getting power by the shade of black it changes when it powers up.

The last time I used it I shut it off by holding the power button.

So far I have tried:

Removing AC power and battery
Removing RAM
Removing CMOS battery (or whatever its called, it looks like a watch battery)
Removing Hard Drive

I'm praying that its not a fried Mother Board, could it be a corrupted BIOS?
Please help,
thanks
 

A:Laptop won't start: black screen - lights flash on then off

Is this the same laptop that's in your other topic ?

If it is I recommend you use the other topic only and remove this one.

That would keep all the information in one place and make it easier to help you.

When my battery is charged (power LED white or blue, not red), the computer will boot with a black screen (an external monitor attached will work and the boot seems to work well, but the screen of the laptop remains black). When the battery is almost discharged (power LED red) the computer will boot up correctly. Also, if I disconnect the battery and boot up with the AC adapter, it will boot up correctly. I have seen other posts that say that I should disconnect the battery and drain the CMOS battery or mainboard by either disconnecting the former or pressing the power on button for a while with the main battery disconnected. I don't believe there is a CMOS battery in the Yoga 3 14 (at least I was not able to find it) and pressing the power on button without the battery to drain the mainboard has not made the trick for me. Once I connect back the battery, if the battery was drained, the computer will boot correctly, but as soon as the battery is charged, the computer won't boot again with the screen on. I have checked bios, VGA drivers, etc... and I seem to have all the latest from LENOVO. But there might be something I have not found. I also changed the BIOS setting disabling fast boot (which I read in another post). My computer is out of warranty so I would like to see if there is a way out without going to a repair shop. Thanks!

I bought a new power supply for my laptop, the new one is only 19v and the laptop requires 19.5v.   The store tech told me it shouldn't be an issue, just the battery may no charge as fast.  When I plugged it in, the computer did not start up.   I unplugged it and it didn't start up under battery power either.Now nothing is working, no lights on the charging LED, the power button does not light up, the other lights on the keyboard do not light up and the fan does not work.   It is dead. I tried that hard reset several times, still nothing, nothing works with the AC power only plugged in or with or without the battery. Is there anything else I can try before sending it in for repair?

I went to use my laptop and it wouldn't turn on, the only thing that was running was the fan and it was much louder than usual. When I returned to the laptop a few hours later, the fan was finally off and the computer was unresponsive, no lights or sounds at all. I tried the hard reset and that didn't work. I tried numerous outlets and still no power. What else can I possibly do?

Have an HP laptop that shut down during a game on Facebook. Upon reboot, had an error message. Researched message on HP's site, found message was related to hard drive failure. Purchased exact hard drive again and replaced. Tried recovering with disks purchased originally for laptop from HP and got message, system recovery disk did not support this system. (Disk numbers did not match packaging). HP sent new disks, when inserted got message no bootable device found. Contacted HP tech support, was told to power on laptop and repeatedly hit the escape key. Nothing happened, just a black screen. Was then told to unplug laptop, pull battery and hold power button for 20 seconds, then to power on and hit escape repeatedly again. After this attempt the light beside the Caps Lock key and the light beside the Altec Lansing Logo were flashing about once a second and still had black screen. HP tech support then stated the motherboard was bad. Now can't even get into the Bios. I no longer have the original error message as I thought the new hard drive would fix the problem. Just wondered if HP was correct and the motherboard was bad... Have a HP desktop and was told by them it was the motherboard and it wasn't.

I've browsed around various threads and I still couldnt find an answer, so I'll try my luck by asking.

My hp dv5 laptop does not boot up straight away, all that happens a blank screen awith flashing keyboard lights. I can get it to start but only after repeatedly turning it on and off for an hour or two( many wasted hours -_-)
This all started as a minor issue where it would take about 3 or 4 restarts and then would proceed to boot up normally. As time went on it grew increasingly longer, so i looked around on various forums and I read a few problems people had with poorly applied thermal paste on heatsinks. I bought some paste and disassembled my laptop to the mother board( cleaned it out in the process) the previous thermopaste had cemented and so I removed it and applied the new paste. Once assembled, the problem still remained.
I'd appreciate any help as I don't have big mulah to spend on new laptops or expensive parts. Thanks in advance

 Hi all,First post!  My Dad's Lenovo laptop goes to a black screen when starting up, so is unusable.I haven't seen it in the flesh yet but have started to research things for him and have found that 'black screen' shows up quite a lot for Windows 10 and Lenovo PCs! We were so impressed with my Dad's PC I've ended up with the same model myself:Lenovo YOGA 500 Convertible Laptop, Intel Core i7, 8GB RAM, 256GB SSD, 15.6" Touch Screen.Also labelled as: Yoga 500-15IBD Laptop (ideapad)  I see some people mentioning hardware failures and others device driver problems with the graphic card etc. but haven't read a definite cause/fix for this so far. I've just found this recent critical BIOS update for this PC which mentions the black screen problem:Software name: BDCN63WW Version 63[Important updates] Fix Win 10 lid close black screen issue.http://support.lenovo.com/gb/en/products/Laptops-and-netbooks/Yoga-Series/yoga-500-15ibd/downloads/D...I haven't seen this mentioned in the forums? Has anyone else used this?If the PC always boots to a black screen I'll obviously have trouble installing this! I'm hoping that it will boot in Safe Mode or I'm going to have some trouble installing it?! I don't know whether to install the BIOS update on my own machine which is running fine - I think I'll wait until I see my Dad's laptop first which will be in a few weeks. Has anyone had any experience of this BIOS update or other comments on this?Thanks. &nb...

A:Yoga 500 'BLACK SCREEN' - BIOS update: "[Important updates] Fix Win 10 lid close black screen issue"

I'm still wondering about this... I've just updated the Lenovo Companion after seeing it mentioned in another thread. It looks like this s/w is supposed to scan the PC and recommend Lenovo updates - critical and nice to have ones. Initially the Companion was showing a critical update for Lenovo SHAREit and a recommended one for my BIOS. It says I'm currently on BDCN28WW and offered something like v61 and not the 63 I mentioned in my first post? After letting it update SHAREit and re-scanning the BIOS update is no longer being offered and still shows me on v28 ??? I'm not sure I trust this 'Companion' app!My laptop seems to be running fine so I don't want to break it updating the BIOS if it's not required. For all I know my Dad's broken one may be broken because it upgraded?! Does anyone else use/trust the Companion app?And has anyone else seen it change it's mind on recommended BIOS updates?Thanks.

I'm not sure if this is in the right area or not.

I had my laptop on and running fine for a few hours accumulatively (because I did put it in sleep mode ocasionally) last night and then one time I turned it off and when I turned it back on it lit up but nothing came up on the screen.

I turned it back off by holding down the power button and decided to let it cool down. Later I turned it back on and it was working fine seemingly and then it would "turn off" because the screen went black but the lights were still on. Then it would refuse to turn on for a while. I let it set overnight and I turned it on and it seemed to work again but then it did that thing I mentioned where the screen goes black but the lights are still on and it won't turn back on now. Well, it will turn on because the lights will be on but nothing will show on the screen.

I also think there might be a chance there is a virus on it. My alert keeps popping up and telling me that there is but it says it's quarantined and infected or something. I don't really know how to explain it.

Hello, a week ago I had what I am now refering to as Major Disaster Number One. When I turned on my Laptop it didn't boot had a black screen and made loud beeping noises. This was eventually resolved by removing one of the memory cards as one of the slots was defective. In the meantime I had done quite a lot of fiddling with the system.

The PC had been working fine for a whole week until Major Disaster Number Two happened today. This time thankfully no loud beeping but black screen and flashing num/caps locks (twice). According to the HP website 2 flashes indicates a BIOS problem. I did what was recommended and took battery out and pressed power button for a minute. Tried this several times in different combinations but with no success. Tried reconnecting hard drive and swapping memory around again.

Actually something I should mention is that when I first turned it on today it came up with a white screen, totally white, and after waiting a minute I impatiently turned the computer off at which point it refused to turn on again.

I have looked on various forums including this one but don't know what the PC terminology "post" and "flash" mean with reference to boot up and bios.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Context of the problem
Laptop model: L322XBIOS version: A08
I seem to be having virtually the exact same issue as this one.  
http://en.community.dell.com/support-forums/laptop/f/3518/t/19522061.aspx
Except I am on A08.  
Basically the laptop will not boot, I cannot even get into the bios because it never boots to the dell logo.  It started happening maybe a week ago, but after a few trials normally it would work again and boot into windows.  At this point though it will not boot at all.
I have tried his solution at the bottom of the page, but after 30 plus trials it still will not update the firmware to A09.
I am currently completely unable to boot to the dell logo, or windows, every time it tries to start it hangs with the keyboard lit up, and the screen fully black.  I can boot to the dos bios update utility as he explains in his post, but again it will not update the firmware ever.  Any idea what I should do?
Is there anyway I can force it to boot into the bios so I can try to change some settings?  I looked but could not find any jumpers in the documentation for resetting the bios.  

Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks.

My G50-80 Laptop (Lenovo) - Type 80L0 running Win10 stopped working back in 2016, My warranty ran out right when it returned from repairs and lucky for me it just happened to break 2 weeks after being repaired! I tried a few things back then but nothing worked and I gave up, buying a cheap laptop just to get me through my job. I'm returning to this laptop though because I feel like it can be fixed and I want to give it to a friend if I can fix it. I've tried hard resetting, with and without battery. Opened it up, reseated ram and memory. I can't access BIOS. I plugged it into an HDMI display to see if something was wrong with the laptop display. I might have done a bunch of other things I can't remember. Nothing has worked. I did notice when reseating that my laptop had room for a two-part memory but the second part wasn't there, I don't know if this was a mistake by the repair team? Or if it's not needed. (My computer knowledge is lacking.)  I sent my laptop in for repair because the USB got overloaded and broke every input on the right side of the computer.

Model CQ61 319WM This is a friend's computer.  Yes, it's old.  But, it was working fine until it went into sleep mode last night.  Hasn't come up since. Searches took me to this HP support page.  Win+B and Power on does not show the BIOS restore screen.  It just shows the same black screen.  It mentions trying more than once.  I tried at least a half dozen times.  Removed the battery and unplugged the power for a few seconds prior to some of the tries. The BIOS download (sp48895.exe) does not provide the option to format a USB drive as bootable.  I searched around and created my own bootable thumb drive.  Then, copied the BIOS files onto it. Unfortunately, that method also uses the Win+B and power on to bring up the boot order screen.  All I get is black. There are a bunch of "black screen" threads on here.  I've read several of them.  But, I haven't found any others that appear to apply to this model. Suggestions appreciated. Drake Christensen

Hey all. Got windows 7 on my g555, with truecrypt on the drive, if it matters.  Last night, closed down the cover of my laptop before i fell asleep, like always, today it doesn't respond at all when I opened it back up.  Forced it to shut down, and haven't seen anything but a black screen since. The power light comes on, the fan comes on, and that's about it.  Can't get to the bios, can't do ANYTHING.  Tried unplugging it for a while, pressing power 10 times, holding power down for a minute, ran the battery entirely dry THEN discharged the caps, ...I've read many solutions where its the built up static charge that's the problem, but not here.  I've tried all versions of the solution I could find, all very similar, but none worked.  I took out my RAM and put it back in, and same for the hard drive.  No dice. The only lights I get at all are the power light, and the battery charging light next to it.  Can't get the CAPS LOCK, num lock, any of that to do anything.  Cannot boot by CD/DVD as I cannot change the bios, and can't get any response from any keys or key combos that I can think of (including the one-touch restore). Any advice?  What can I try here to get this sucker going again?

Okay here is what is happening, I just cleaned up a PC that I own Windows ME OS, more or less a Dell Machine, with a couple of bits added.

Anyway after I was finished cleaning it up I brought it up to the house. It started up fine, Detected everything (from what I can see) but then as soon as it starts to go to the Desktop the Monitor goes blank and all the lights on the Monitor are flashing. I could not figure out what the problem is so I re-started and booted in Safe Mode which worked, I then went to look for the Drivers but it did not detect the Monitor or have drivers available for it (in Safe Mode - is this normal?), I think it is a case that some of the Drivers have been deleted.

So my questions are....

- Is it missing Drivers?
- If so where can I get them?
- Any other Ideas?

Thanks,

Alan
 

A:Start up Problem - Monitor Lights all flashing - blank screen

Good Evening Alan, I understand you can successfully boot into safe mode.
Understand that in safe mode a basic driver is used to allow video display.

Your symptom is similar to an out of range kind of problem as though you might be using an old monitor where sometime previously you may have had a more modern one and have increased the video settings which is unsuitable for the current one.

Whilst in Safe Mode, go to the control panel > Display > Settings and knock the screen size and colour settings back to say, the lowest available.

See if that allows windows to normally boot, you can increase the settings later if possible.

qldit.

    I have a Lenovo Yoga 13 that is out of warranty. I bought it in 2013.  With that out o' the way, my Lenovo Yoga 13's screen stays black even when the power is on...I see no Lenovo logo or anything AND the laptop keeps restarting on its own, so it is stuck in restart mode, with the screen staying black the whole time.  This laptop has been doing this (black screen even though power is on and shuts off and restarts on its own) for about 6 months now....(Jan 2017-June 3, 2017 as of this writing). This laptop works WHEN IT WANTS TO EVERY ONCE IN AWHILE, BUT NOT OFTEN.  I turned the laptop on now, and I'm typing on it now, **BUT when it doesn't work, which is most of the time**, it shows a black screen (I see nothing on the screen) even with the power on and constantly restarts on its own. Is this hardware issue a motherboard problem or a screen issue specifically? Specifically, is it the motherboard that needs to be fixed on this Yoga 13 or is it a screen issue? If it's a motherboard issue that needs to be fixed, how much would it cost? Or If it's a screen issue, how much would that cost to fix? Any help on this is much needed!

Yoga Pro 3 1370 This is an old laptop that I've had laying around. The battery went dead a few years ago and I chose to upgrade. I recently decided to sell it so I purchased a new battery. Everything works perfectly. However, there is a black screen.No Lenovo logo on boot up.Cannot get into the BIOS menu and the screen display.There is absolutely no picture. After reading I tried an external display and discovered the laptop works as well as the touch screen. I wondered if it was a software issue but when I tried to reset the laptop I receive the following message: "There was an issue resetting your PC. Nothing has been changed."This happens when I try to rest from the settings, the recovery button, and the advanced startup menu.I'm sure I could replace the LCD but is it really necessary to do so because the touch screen works?I'm not an expert by any means so my apologies if any of this sounded ignorant. Any advice or suggestions will help!Thanks in advance.

So my Yoga 2 started having this problem about after I downloaded windows 10, at random times when I was using my laptop the screen would flicker but then go back to normal. But about two days ago when I turned on the laptop the display is completely black. My computer will turn on and the bios will run but then when it is suppose to come in the log in screen a black screen just comes up and I am not able to do anything. The backlight is on but nothing comes on the display. I looked through bios to try and see if there was something I could do but i dont really want to mess around in there with things I dont understand. I am not tech savvy so I really have no idea to go about this. Please help!

Hello everyone! I have a one week old Yoga 910 model 80VF. Two days ago I noticed an issue. I guess the best way to explain it is the screen doesn't turn on. I power the laptop on, the keyborad lights up but the screeen stays off (no backlight). I have to put the lid down, the laptop goes to sleep and then open it up so the screen turns on and I can login. This doesn't happen everytime I turn the laptop on. I have downloaded all of the updates from lenovo.com and Microsoft. I also run diagnostic checks with no problems. Any help is appreciated. Thank you

Help, mayday or what you want !!!! LENOVO YOGA 13, Core I5, bought 23/03/2013.... When I press the power button, the power light and the capslock-lights light up and the fan starts, but nothing more : The screen stays black the entire time.If I run the YOGA only on battery or on AC the problem remains the same...Of course, I hold the power button down for 10 sec to force a full shutdown and then I press it again to startup. Always black screen... I have tried the recovery key method a couple of times without success. Nothing appears, black screen, always...I gently press all the touchs, like F12 or others... But nothing...Before this problem, I did nothing special. I did not use the YOGA that has remained plugged in for 3 days. How to work, especially since I have a lot of data on this computer ? I am very disappointed, especially since I have spoken positively of the YOGA 13 on many French websites...

A:*** YOGA 13 : BLACK SCREEN ***

My Yoga 13 was working fine, it was great After installing utorrent, it won't start and I am stuck in a black screen for two daysI can move the cursor and the controls like brightness and volume and screen duplication still can be seen on the screen but that was all. Now I couldn't do anything and it would sleep when the lid closes. I hope there would be a hard restart button or some other ways to work around.
