Lenovo Yoga 900 goes to a black screen after lenovo logo

Q: Lenovo Yoga 900 goes to a black screen after lenovo logo

Suddenly when I tried to turn on my laptop (yoga 900, 13ISK), I see the Lenovo logo for few seconds then the screen goes black, and it does not load windows, I tried to use the reset button on the side of the tablet to enter bios settings, the menu flashes for a second and then the screen goes black again. I dont hear any fans running in the back ground. When I click the power button it turns off immediately, I tried to disconnect the battery and connect it again but the problem persists, I cannot access anything to try a hard rest. Any help is appreciated.

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.)

My Lenovo Y50 laptop (I don?t remember the year. Around 2015 or so with GTX 860m graphics card) won?t turn on the screen when started up. It doesn?t even show the Lenovo logo, and when I connect a USB mouse, the mouse flashes its red light for a split second and dies as well. The fan still runs, the red keyboard background lights are still on and could still be turned on or off, but the numpad and capslock lights are unresponsive. I have tried connecting to a TV with HDMI cable (nothing) and replacing the boot drive with another older one (same problems as before). Is there something else I can do? PS: Recently my house had a series of power outtages and the laptop was abruptly shut off a few times (its battery is dead), so the issues came immediately after the last power outtage.

Hello,My Lenovo laptop is not starting.When I press the power button the Lenovo logo appears. After that there is an error message and the laptop prepares for automatic repair. But as the repair screen comes up nothing happens thereafter. The black screen remains. Even tried reinstalling windows but after selecting the usb drive for booting nothing happens. The same black screen remains. Does anyone knows the issue?

A:Lenovo G50-30 : getting black screen after lenovo logo

Hi zoheb_syed , 
 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
 
Doing factory reset would delete everything and repartitioned with new Windows on it just like out of the box . 
Lenovo splash screen is a good sign that power goes in the computer and the devices required for a working machine.
For as long as you back up your files , try doing the Lenovo Restore using the Novo key (no.2 page 9).
Just turn off the pc and use the Novo button to turn it on . Novo menu would give the System Recovery 
 
Soon as done , create a local account and proceed. 
If it goes to a black screen during the process , I recommend you call in tech support for repair.
Most likely there would be a problem with the GPU since rendering on Windows failed.
You can also check the display on any external monitor to see if the display would work externally to isolate LCD or cable issue .  
If the computer finish up with the restoration then run Lenovo diagnostics. 
 
Tech support can give you repair options or if BIOS update is neccessary . 
Best check on your warranty for the type of repair service you would expect (either sending to depot or Onsite repair)
Considering the turn around time of the repair , which I know that you need it on a daily basis for work  Try above step and let us see how it works.
 
Hope this helped you get things done on your issue.
 
 
Regards

Hello,The weirdest problem I ever encountered. I tried to google the solution but everything I found didn't work.I have a Lenovo Y50-70 Touch screen.Most of the time it stays open on my desk while turned on (and sometimes went to sleep mode). During all this time it worked well.A few months ago I needed to restart the laptop and so after, the screen went black and didn't turn on at all. Not even the logo. While the fans and the keyboard's lights are working.At that time, I tried to turn the laptop off by pressing the on/off button for a few seconds, and after off/on several times, it suddenly loaded the Lenovo logo and worked.Since then and up to a week ago, the laptop worked fine and I even played games with it.A week ago I needed to restart it again, and again the problem accrued.I found on google that maybe it's the charger but it didn't help, but after I connected the charger again (in the 4th times) it suddenly worked again...Today I needed to shut down the laptop, and now nothing help and the screen is black again when I try to power it up.* One weird thing also happened during today - during my attempts to turn it on, suddenly the logo loaded again, and right after it, a blue screen with Windows Update progress was shown.When it finished, the laptop restarted again and... now again the screen is black and doesn't turn on.* When I shut down the laptop, I didn't send it to update or anything, I don't know why I got this update window...More things that we tried here (aft...

Hi,i have Lenovo ThinkPad T470 (LENOVO 20HD0002MC) and recently has started a strange problem:While booting at first Lenovo logo shows up (where you can get to BIOS by Enter key) and right after screen goes black. When i power down laptop and boot again (sometime few times) intead of the black screen there is a prompt for Bios password, like it should have and booting continues to OS.Enter key for BIOS doesnt work while it slill get stuck on black screen just right before it loads the BIOS (after trying few times with power -off/on it gets to BIOS and i can boot normally)I have BIOS firmware updated to the latest version, so as well drivers for hardware.Im not aware of any change that could potentionally start this issue, maybe after updating bios to some newer version.Otherwise im using Windows 10 with latest updates, but i dont think this could cause the issue as its way before windows loading.Thanks for the help.

Was working on my laptop last night and everythign was fine. Came back and tried to wake my p50 from sleep and it wouldn't wake up. No hard drive light showing activity, just the slow throb of the power button showing the computer was asleep. Hitting the power button to wake from sleep doesn't do anything. Holding it down for 10 seconds turns the machine off but when I turn it back on I don't get the Lenovo logo or any post information. Also don't feel any air from the vents. Guessing this is bricked but anyone have any suggestions? I have pulled out the battery and drained all the power from the computer. I do not have anything plugged into the computer and have tried rebooting both on battery power alone and plugged in but get the same response. Thanks!

 Hi there, Eddie                       -
 
Thank you for writing in to the Lenovo Forum - happy to have you here today.
 
Automatic Repair usually kicks in if there's a problem loading up the files that's required to start Windows. If the repair was interrupted and the screen just goes into a black screen then there's most likely a hardware component that's malfunctioning.
 
To check, try to:

Boot into the BIOS by pressing the OneKey Recovery button

  - Link to picture
 
If successful, set the following settings in the BIOS:
 
Security Tab:
Secure Boot = Disabled
 
Boot Tab:
UEFI = Disabled or Legacy
Boot Mode = Legacy
Boot Priority = Legacy First
Exit Tab
 
OS Optimized Defaults = Other OS or Disabled
 
When done, press F10 (or Fn+10) to save and exit and try to boot from your Windows CD
 

If you're successful in booting from the Windows Disc, see Step 1 to Step 2 of this guideon how to proceed in fixing the issue.
If the problem remains, consider re-installing Windows by pressing the OneKey Recovery button and choose System Recovery

  - Link to picture
 
In an event that the recovery fails, I recommend you contact Lenovo and report the issue as you may need to send the unit for service.
 
Update us how it goes.

Someone I know gave me their Lenovo G50-45 laptop to fix it. The issue it is having is that when it is powered, it takes a long time to get to the Lenovo logo screen. It was reported to take as long as 30 minutes or more. Interestingly, I opened it up to clean it up if needed and disconnected multiple parts. After reassemblying it properly (suprisingly not breaking or missing anything), I turned it on and it immediately showed the Lenovo logo screen. That suprised me. However, this did speed did not last. After multiple shutdowns and reboots, it has started to take longer and longer to get to the Lenovo logo screen. I also noticed that it seems to be restarting multiple times prior to it showing the Lenovo logo screen. I can tell by seeing the Power LED turning off every once in awhile and then turns on a second or so later. I haven't timed it yet to see if there is a definite pattern. But it does seem somewhat random in how many times it does this. With 8GB of RAM, it works fairly well after it gets to the Lenovo logo screen and it boots into Windows 10. Runs great except for getting to the Lenovo logo screen. I have run the Lenovo Diagnostics Tool, but running the Quick and Full Scans. Yet there were no issues that it could detect (except for Bluetooth not being connected to a device). At this point, I am certain it is either a hardware issue or a firmware issue. It can't be a software issue as this issue occurs before any software is loaded and lik... Read more

The backlight to the screen and keyboard remain on. I have deleted and re-installed windows, and updated all suggestions including the intel update suggested on this forum. I have had it assessed by a repairs centre but nobody seems to be able to find the source of the problem. Any suggestion would be welcome!

As it says in the subject: my laptop screen keeps going dark for a second or two while in use (and plugged in). It's not going to sleep or shutting down; any music playing doesn't cut out, and when the black screen goes away I'm still logged in and my programs are all up and running as they were before the flicker. Last night while running on battery, it shut down on 18% power and wouldn't switch back on for almost an hour, even while plugged in. I don't know if that was the start of the problem; the black flicker started happening today. I think it's happened three or four times today. I only bought the computer three months ago and it's definitely not experienced any knocking around or anything.  Can anyone tell me what's wrong and how to fix it?

Hello DennyLarsonThanks for using the Lenovo forums.Sounds like something may have potentially got fried perhaps.
 
Try a static discharge for this, it may help to resolve the issue or at least get rid of any built up static on the motherboard.(If the battery is internal, please just skip the remove/replace battery steps.)1. Turn the unit off2. Remove the battery and the Mains adapter3. Press and hold the front power button for 30 seconds4. Replace the battery and the Mains adapter5. Turn the unit on as normal
 If these steps do not work I would recommend, that you call your local Lenovo support line for a possible service. Below is the link to the phone list where you can find these numbers
 
Hope this helps, let us know how you get on.==================================================================================Did someone help you today? Thank them with a Kudo! If you find a post helpful and it answers your question, please mark it as an "Accepted Solution"!

Whenever i lean my Yoga 920 at the center (so all the pressure is focused at top-center), instead of the gums at the four corners, my computer screen blacks out until I remove the pressure. It's a really uncommon way to lean the computer, but I was asking myself if this is a worrying problem. Perhaps, by repeatedly pressuring that point when I might keep the laptop on my laps or when I carry it in a bag it could worsen that problem even more.

Hi guys, My first message here and unfortunately, it's not for the coolest reason.I have a Yoga 500-14 IHW that works perfectly well when plugged, but I noticed a few days ago that as soon as I unplugged it from the USB type power port, the screen suddenly turns black. I thought it was a question of brightness, drivers, windows power plan, etc. I have also tried all the solutions here (https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/forums/v3_1/forumtopicpage/board-id/ll06_en/page/6/thread-id/28087), without success once again.One thing that I noticed and that bothers me a lot is the fact that once it is unplugged, if I try to power on the laptop, the screen is black and no Lenovo spash screen appears. The computer is working, the lights are on, I can hear the fans of the graphics card, but no screen. And of course, as soon as I plug in the power cable, the screen lights up and I'm in front of the Windows login page. If I want to access the BIOS, I can only do so once it is plugged. If I want to start from a live cd, I can only do it once plugged.All of this leads me to think that my laptop screen is broken and no longer works when it is unplugged. Is it a battery problem? The battery is at 100% right now, but is there perhaps a more specific test to be done on the battery?I'm waiting for good ideas to check what else is going on. Otherwise, do you confirm that I will have to return the computer in warranty?Thank you very much,Jed13

It showed the lenovo logo, but then went back to black, and when I tried it a second time nothing happened. I don't have the ability to take the battery out, so I've now unplugged it and have devices hooked up to the USBs and charging to drain the battery--I've read that's one way to do it.

Hello all, Whenever my fingers are on the keyboard, touchpad, screen, or surface of the keyboard, the screen blacks out completely. Every time light pressure is added, even a gentle tap, the screen blacks out. Music continues to play on the laptop even when the screen is black, and if I'm typing, all of the text that I entered while the screen is black remains. Occasionally, by applying pressure to either the bottom left or right corners of the keyboard surface, the screen remains. But even so, slight changes to my hand positions are enough to make the screen black out again.I recently sent in my laptop to Lenovo repair services due to a wifi connection-related problem, but I don't think this could be connected in any way. If anyone has experienced this before or is aware of how to fix the problem, it would be much appreciated. Thank you!

Hi, I am join the Lenovo forums to seek assitance with an issue with my Thinkpad Yoga 14. I recently purchased the notenook from Best Buy and it has been great.  But there's an intermitten issue with the screen going black. My theory was that the ambient light sensor is what tells the laptop it's closed, and it was getting obscured, causing my screen to turn off. This issue occurs when I am using it in tablet mode and during the process of the folding the screen back. The screen is fine in laptop mode, unless I adjust the angle of the screen.  So it seems every time I place my hand on the screen to draw, or fold the hinge, the screen will turn black. I have taken the following steps:-Updated Windows and all my Lenovo Apps.-Changing power options to 'Do Nothing' when lid closes.  Does anyone else have this issue? I am hoping this is not a hardware issue   Thanks everyone.

Yesterday I went to class and when I tried to turn on my laptop it did not display anything except turn on the backlight and start up the fans. There is no visible damage and I did not drop it or spill anything on it recently. I tried plugging it into an external monitor to see if the screen was the issue, but nothing. I tried unplugging the battery and pressing the power button for 30 seconds as suggested, and doing the same, but nothing. I've had issues before of my BIOS not being up to date and messing with the functionality of the laptop. Does anyone know what the issue may be? I'm afraid it is the motherboard, which would mean I would have to scrap my $1000 laptop after 3 years, but I would like to take any suggestions as to what the issue may be, other than the motherboard. Thanks!

A few weeks ago I bought a Lenovo Yoga 2 pro notebook and I´m very happy with it there´s just one thing.. After some time of working (it doesn´t matter what you do) the sreen turns dark and starts to flicker. when you move the couror via the touchpad you can stop it for a few seconds but as soon as you sto moving it it starts again. After about half a minute everything is over and it´s like it had never happened. Has anybody an idea what i could do? Thanks a lot!

A:Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro black and flickering screen

That periodical 5 - 30 seconds black flickering screen has tormented me on my Y2P ever since I upgraded to Windows 10. Just today in a Yoga 2 Pro tips discussion I read that the solution may be to disable Panel Self-Refresh in the Intel HD Graphics Control Panel (Power -> On Battery). Too soon for me to tell if it works but I have my fingers crossed.

So I recently came to South Korea to teach and my computer was working fine. i have two lenovo yoga series computer, one being the 2 and one being the 3 pro. The 3 pro I literally have used maybe 12 times. I bought it a while back but it was not convenient for the size at that time so I kept using my smaller once. So it is pretty much brand new. It booted up, it was charged, I was able to log on, then suddenly it went black and I have not been able to get a screen since then. I've never dropped it, I've barely put anything on it, it was working fine two days beforehand, then boom, nothing. I can't hear the fan going on it either, but then again, I never really noticed a fan noise in the beginning, either. I let it die on its own hoping maybe that would work.I charged it fully as well.I tried the 'press the power button so-and-so times for this' to try to hard-restart or something of the like.I know I have power because the light comes on, and I am able to make the lighting behind the keyboard come on and off. The screen is the only problem at this point. Since I just moved to Korea, I am obviously not fluent. I had my coteacher call Lenovo Korea for me and they said my computer wasn't covered under Korean Warranty, but from what I read it is. It doesn't end until January of 2017 either.So I'm at a loss. I can't speak fluent Korean so I can't call myself, and I can't put in for a callback. I may have my parents call the USA number, but then I'd have to ship... Read more

A:Lenovo Yoga Pro 3 - Black screen, no fan, but powe...

Hello Kitsumiya,I guess I also had this problem on my lenovo yoga 3-1470 before, but I am not so sure about it. There was once when I power on my lenovo yoga 3-1470, it went black screen, and I thought my lenovo yoga 3-1470 screen has spoilt. I tried restarting the system over and over by pressing the power on button. But when I put the screen under the light, I could see a very faint message box, asking me to restart. My lenovo yoga 3-1470 was touch-screen, hence I touch restart, and the screen came back normal again.This is not the solution to your problem, but I am just enquring on whether are you facing the same problem as me. If it persists, I guess you would have to send it for fixing, or look around for other solutions.  Regards, Federick

Since you have to hunt around different Lenovo sites (and other sites) to find out about these softwares, I decided to make a post to get feedback from actual Yoga owners on how these programs interact, what they do, which ones are prerequisite, and which ones are unnecessary. Please don't take this as a blanket answer. This is just what I have found. It might be right - it might be wrong. I'm looking for others to post their experiences as well. Lenovo System Interface Foundation Driver - Necessary prerequisite (missing driver in device manager without it). It allows the Lenovo Utility and Lenovo Companion to work. Lenovo Yoga Mode Control - Necessary if you want to use your yoga to seemlessly change between all the different modes (laptop, tablet, tent, stand). This software is responsible for autorotating and putting Windows into tablet mode. Lenovo Utility - Recommended(?) This one I'm not too sure on. I remember that I was missing some function that I wanted but I can't remember what it was now. Maybe battery cycle count and health? Lenovo Companion - I don't have this one installed and don't think it's necessary but would like someone else to shed some light here.
