Lenovo Yoga 730 15 4K NVIDIA GTX 1050 Screen Flashes Black Randomly

Q: Lenovo Yoga 730 15 4K NVIDIA GTX 1050 Screen Flashes Black Randomly

Greetings, I have a Lenovo Yoga 730 15 with 4K and NVIDIA GTX 1050, which has a screen that blacks out at random. Based on what I read in other threads, it could be an issue connected with the auto-brightness and auto-dimmining settings. So, I turned those features off. Though it has been happening less, it's still happenning. Could anyone tell me what other settings I should check to resolve this issue? Thank you for your help.

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.

Greetings, I recently purchased the Lenovo Yoga 730 15 inch laptop with 4K NVIDIA GTX 1050 and I've been experiencing an increase in the the fan running consistently with a low or medium whistle sound. At first, it was loud when installing updates, which was understandable. But, tonight, the fan has not stopped running since I went online to practice coding. It is especially noticeable when I'm using Microsoft Edge or Google Chrome for browsing, practicing coding on tutorial websites, and checking my email. It only stops if I close the laptop.  I have checked for hardware updates from both Microsoft and Lenovo Vantage, but everything is up-to-date. I have read through different threads in the forum about the fan noise on the previous version in the Yoga 700 series, but so far, but the solutions have not worked for me so far. Is the issue connected to the browser settings? Could it be my display, battery, power, or other settings that are wrong? I have it in the better battery mode (or balanced mode) instead of performance. I tried to use it in performance mode, but nothing changed. If anyone could offer some advice, I would really appreciate it.

I recently changed the Catalyst Control Center settings (can't remember exact changes) and now my screen goes black for 2-3 seconds at a time randomly. I removed the display driver and Catalyst Control Center and let Windows Update install a new version on a reboot. I've had the card for many years with no problem like this before.

How can I erase the entire video driver/software configuration and re-install it to get back to normal?

Thanks in advance,

Assuming you have the current Catalyst driver downloaded for your "legacy" HD4670 and ready for use in a reinstall, one clean way to remove all existing AMD software and drivers guaranteed is to use "Driver Fusion" from Treexy (this used to be called "Driver Sweeper").

It comes in a free version, and there also is a non-free premium version. The free version is sufficient to remove everything for the supported audio and video vendors, including of course AMD, nVidia and Intel on the video side.

You click on "Maintenance", and then "Driver Family", then "Display", then "AMD". Follow the "delete" process from there, and when it completes you reboot. You've now completely removed every trace of AMD, including from the Registry.

You can now reinstall your Catalyst driver from scratch.

Hello! When I connect my Yoga 900 laptop to my Samsung external monitor using a USB-C/HDMI adapter, the laptop screen flashes black and the external screen does nothing. Between the flashes I can see my desktop background goes blue and every program/file that is open begins popping up and closing on repeat. Nothing ever shows on the external monitor. The only fix is to unplug the two, but if I let the laptop flash for more than about a minute it eventually goes black. When this happens, unplugging it from the monitor does nothing and it has to be manually restarted using the side button. As noted in other forum solutions, I manually updated all video and chip drivers.I have tested the monitor's HDMI port, the Yoga 900's USB-C port, and the HDMI cable itself. I have also tried a different brand of USB-C adapter. Pressing Windows + P doesn't seem to do much, as I can see the menu between the flashes and click "expand" but nothing happens. Any idea what else I can do? Thank you.

- Firstly my laptop was making the USB in and out sounds along with black screen flashes and also screen resolution changes.

- So I decided it was time to reset my laptop completely in the hope of fixing this problem.

- Now, after my laptop finished resetting, another problem has arisen, a red cross appeared on my speaker logo on taskbar and no sound ! So I fixed it following these steps windows 10 sound problem,no speakers or headphones plugged in error - YouTube (for reference)

- Now after this, yes, I have sound, but my sound quality has drastically decreased, almost like 'stock' sound. Unsure what to do now with this !!

- Further to this whilst avast free antivirus was installing (doubt that matters) my original "USB in and out sound" problem had happened again, with black screen flashes and screen resolution changes.

- As I had been in such a pickle I decided to come here as I really need an expert opinion.

My laptop is a HP Envy
Processor: AMD A10-5750M APU with Radeon(tm) HD Graphics 2.50GHz
Ram: 8gb

AN IMPORTANT NOTE: I upgraded to windows 10 as part of the free upgrade a while back. I noticed that the red cross speaker problem has been linked to this? Unsure for me.

Only things Ive got back on my laptop was google chrome (logged in again with all extenstions and bookmarks..etc).
Steam. Football manager 2017. and yes avast.

Any help greatly appreciated and thank you in advance.

A:Lenovo Yoga C930: Laptop switches modes randomly, sometimes thinks it's shut and just goes black!

Problem seems to have fixed itself, but I'm still worried.It's like something is making the laptop confused. Sometimes it doesn't know if it's in tablet mode, laptop mode, or closed. There's been times where the screen just shuts off, and I need to close and open the laptop again to get it to work. In fact, it was this that caused the issue in the first place.Is there anything that might be causing this system confusion?

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.

A:Lenovo Yoga 3 black screen

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"!

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 all, I have a Yoga 900-13isk that is having screen issues.  The laptop will turn on and the backlight is on.  However, the display will only work if apply pressure on the top of the screen gently.  Does this mean I need a new display?  It would be nice if there was an easier solution than having to spend $350.  I am able to log into my computer and do anything I want, I just have to push down on the top of the screen.

Im not native english speaker, sry if u cant understand some parts. Ill try my best to make my message clear so eventual will come easier.

This problem occurs for quite some time, its rather calm since few weeks when I downloaded shitload of new drivers and some other lenovo stuff but might be just coincedence. Since this issue doesnt want to go away itself I have to do something about it. I can send it to Lenovo for free service anymore so Id like to ask some experts if theres something I can do to fix this issue.

Some info:
- occurs usually while typing or other stuff, but few times my laptop literally went nuts and flashed black screens few times a sec, no matter if i touched it or not

- its not overheating, i bought cooling pad and it didnt help much

- can happen just after turning laptop on and not happen during 10h+ session

Thank you in advance.

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.

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 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

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.

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.

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

I updated my bios for the laptop and the laptop restarted and the screen was black but laptop was powered on. Also keyboard backlighting is on. I turned it off and then on hundreds of times and held the power button for 30 secs but still nothing.

As I'm using the laptop, it will suddenly bring a black screen and then right away go back to my original screen and would do that again and again. What does this mean?I ran a hardware test and it said the PCI/PCI-e test is invalid. Any recommendations for what I should do?Thanks

Andy - I purchased a Lenovo Yoga almost a year ago and the black line has appeared at the top of my screen - about 6 weeks ago.  I was reading on the support page that there has been a resolution.  What is the resolution and how can I get this issue resolved?  Thank you

I just purchased my laptop about a month ago and when in normal use starting from log in the screen starts to flicker constantly and the screen would also black out here and there. When I boot it in safe mode everything runs fine and the screen doesn't flicker or black out so I'm guessing that it's a graphic driver issue and not a hardware?  I've updated everything in Windows 10.. the drivers are also all updated (Intel HD Graphic 620 and Nvidia Geforce 940MX). I've also tried uninstalling all the drivers and reinstalling them. I've disabled Problem Reports and Solution Control Panel Support & Windows Error Report Service from services in Task Manager. I've tried everything you can think of but can't find a solution!!! Any suggestions and help is much appreciated!!

I recently bought my lenovo yoga in Poland and currently am staying in Israel (for the next few months). The laptop is working (I can see the keyboard lights) however the screen stays black when I turn it on. I do not have any monitor or any other way to check at home what is going on. The laptop is new and still covered by the guarantee. Does anybody know where to go in Tel Aviv with the laptop to have it checked and hopefully repaired?
