Preferred Solution: P70 - No internal display or keyboard

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.)


A couple days ago the built in display on my P70 started flickering on and off but it would always come back on until now. Now the keyboard and built in display do not work at all. All USB/HDMI ports seem to work okay though so I'm typing this on external keyboard and monitor. Anyone experience this before? Any suggestions? Thanks!

A:P70 - No internal display or keyboard

Hello SMAGThanks for using the Lenovo forums.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 you`re able to, try to download the Video and Chipset drivers for the unit from the support page.
See if this will make any difference.
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"!

I already have the issue that when I put my E5570 to sleep and wake it up again that the keyboard and touchpad do not work. So I have disable the sleep options in the BIOS.
Now I run into different issues.Yesterday I booted the laptop and it hang on the DELL logo, After a while it stated that my EFI file would not be correct. Force reboot and it booted straight to Windows.
What's more annoying is the fact that the laptop boot, the DELL logo is shown and then the screens go's black, as if it's not connected. SO it looks like it hangs.BUT an external monitor through HDMI does work and show the windows logon.The keyboard and touchpad also do not work.External mouse and keyboard do work.
So pretty much I got a brick when I do not have external display/keyboard and mouse available.
When I reboot the laptop it works fine again.Am I the only one with this?Loads of issues with the laptop and wondering if I just have a faulty laptop...
Clean Windows 10 Pro install is done 5 times.Used the  DELL Command Update to install all drivers and patches.Issues keep existing...

A:Latitude E5570 - Black display, no resons to keyboard/touchpad - External display/keyboard/mouse do work

I have been spending a lot of hours in troubleshooting this week.
Diagnostics are 100% ok.
Reinstalled Windows 10 about 15 times.Installing drivers by hands, installing drives trhough the dell update management application.The issues keeps existing.
To sum the them up:- Cold boot (laptop is off) to Windows. Keyboard/Touchpad do not work. (Reboot and they work again)- Resume from sleep. Keyboard/Touchpad do not work. (Reboot and the work again)
After I got the laptop I installed 32Gb of RAM and an 512Gb Samsung 950Pro PCIE M.2 NVME drive.The drive should be support as Dell states on the product page and in the manual that PCIE with NVME is supported.
"Advanced features, like industry-leading M.2 SATA and M.2 PCIe/NVME solid state drives, provide data transfer speeds up to 4x faster over traditional hard drivers. "
In order to get the drive visible and running on PCIe I had to disable the sata controller in the BIOS.This way the drive is detected in Windows as an PCIe NVME capable drive.
Just to verify if the issues I went back to default with the delivered 256Gb M.2 sata drive and 8Gb RAM.To install Windows I had to turn the Sata controller back on.
Installed the drivers manually updated WIndows and tested.The issues do NOT occur.
Retested by installing the drivers using the Dell Update Application.The issues do NOT occur.
So I figured out that the SATA controller somehow is the guilty part for all the issues.I mean when enabled to ACHI or RAID the sleep and non... Read more

Disable the internal keyboard temporarily with keyboard shortcut or with a small installation without disabling the external usb or wireless keyboard attached to it for some time until the user wants to turn it back to normal or if he restarts the system. Please provide a solution which does not incluse changing the drivers of the laptop. Some laptops like Asus and Lenovo provide their own hotkeys for doing this. Is there a way of doing it with my HP laptop?

I have a Dell XPS L521x with Intel 4000 graphics as well as Nvidia GeForce GT640M. I currently only have one external display using the display port and I want to get a 2nd external monitor but I'm not sure if I can. I have read elsewhere that Intel 4000 graphics only supports up to two displays whether or not one of those is the internal display. So since I have a dedicated graphics card am I able to go up to go up another display? If you need more information let me know. Thanks!

Hello, I have a L512 where the integrated webcam had a fault that was causng a BSOD. Neiter updating the driver or disabling the camera helped so I decided to disconnect the camera. As I was doing that the internal display fell forwards and the cable was pulled out the back of the screen. I reconnected it but the internal display would then not work. So far I have tried the following: - replaced the screen cable (as I thought the connector must have been damaged when it was pulled out)- replaced the screen (same reason as above)- reset the BIOS to defaults including making sure that Thinkpad LCD is set as the boot display- updated the BIOS- updated the video driver- confirmed that the lid close switch is working (the laptop goes into sleep mode when the lid is closed)- Fn + F7 seems to work in terms of switching the video output but nothing displays on internal screen- internal screen is off completely, not just very dim Any ideas about what the problem might be and what else I can try? Thanks in advance Guy

I have a Dell Inspiron 1501 that's been a nightmare. I'm running Vista 32-bit (home basic).

Last week, the 'n', 'b', space bar, question mark, and arrows stopped working suddenly. I attached a PS\2 keyboard using a USB adapter and all was well.

I shut the computer down 2 days ago and when I restarted the next morning, I received an error that the computer no longer recognizes my USB device. I tried the repair option on the Vista disc and two other keyboards - no luck. I even tried System Restore.

I've wiped the laptop and reinstalled Vista 4 times in the last 2 months. I've ordered a new laptop but it won't arrive for 2 weeks and - of course - I run my own writing business, so I can't afford to lose ANY time on this.

I have work due this a.m. and I'm now using a combination of my laptop keyboard and the on-screen kb to get my work done. I type at 100wpm and I'm just about ready to lose my mind.

I also deleted, reinstalled, and upgraded the kb driver.

My internal display just stopped working for no reason with Windows 10. The external monitor still works fine though.I checked the Device manager, the internal display had disappeared from the Monitors section, only my external monitor was listed there.It had happened twice. I brought the display back the 1st time after I uninstall the monitor driver and re-installed the latest driver from Lenovo website, but this time it's already with the latest driver and the same trick did not work.Luckily I still have a clone image of the system with Windows 8.1. Once I switched back to Windows 8.1 the internal display worked fine so I think it has to be a driver issue.The display adpater is Intel HD 4600. The internal monitor is the original HD display that came with the laptop. Please help.

i have purchased a second hand Latitude E5540. The problem is that nothing shows up on the internal display, when i connect a display to the VGA port it works fine. Even during POST so it can't be driver related. Loading defaults in BIOS and updating it to the newest version didn't help.
Any ideas what to try?TIA

Hey guys, so i'm running B10074 on my laptop , and I connected my external display to it as well as my external keyboard and mouse at my desk so I could sit there and do the setup etc without moving all of that out of the way. I had the laptop lid shut and off to the side while I was doing this. Then, I shut the laptop down, unplugged all the external peripherals, and turned it on again. It went through the windows boot sequence with the spinning circles, then black screen. After 20 minutes of frustration, I realised that the laptop would show a login prompt only when I plug in the external monitor BEFORE i start it, and only if the laptop is closed while it is booting (when the lid is closed during boot, the Dell logo and spinning circles come up on the external display)

I further figured out that in Control Panel, it only displays the external display, its like the computer doesn't even recognise the internal display anymore. I dont know why that would be since when I first booted it up and installed drivers, I was using the internal display and everything was working fine.
Any help appreciated as well as pointers on not running into this again

Hi community, we are using several Thinkpads for years mostly without issues. But for a while now we have to experience issues with our T540p's in combination with pro and ultimate docks. And lately we also run into the same issue with a T570.Here our configuration, there are two external displays connected to the docking and one of them is the primary screen.And this is the issue: When we undock the T540p, the internal display should switch to be the primary and only display, but it doesn't. It seems to be that the T540p is still thinking to have external displays connected. The internal display is all black but I can move the mouse pointer from the right into the screen and can also move it out of the screen by pulling it downwards.All windows are opened on the virtual screen,which means I cannot see any configuration windows to change display behavior. Pressing Fn+F7 and up or down arrow blind does not change anything.It does not matter if I undock the T540p while it is running, or if I shutdown the system before undocking. When this error occurs it also does not matter if I connect an external display to the T540p directly, I still cannot see anything. To set the internal display to be the main display before undocking does not change the behavior anyway.If I put the T540p into the docking again, mostly everything is fine. The two external displays are running as before. If it was a desktop PC that would be fine but it is a notebook and we need to carry it with us an... Read more

Hi Everyone:

So I want to set my Yoga 2 Pro QHD+ (3200x1800) screen to 2560x1440 and am having some issues. windows will let me use for 16:9 3200x1800, 2048x1152, and 1080p. Trying to set a custom resolution in intel control panel gives me an exceeded bandwidth message with the HD 4400. I am using drivers and I have researched the issue but they always seem to point to using the hdmi out for a dual-link dvi display. One person on superuser had a similar question but I don't think it had a solution that worked I could follow. Can't create custom resolution using intel custom mode app in windows 8.1 - Super User

So does anyone know of a regedit to make this work or if my display can not support this resolution since the way the pixels are laid out or something. I think 3200 is to much for this gpu to handle well but love the real estate, and 2560x1440 is I think the sweet spot for 13 inch displays atm. My desktop res is also this resolution so I feel right at home.

Thanks again

I have a Toshiba satellite a500.

The display stopped working about a week ago, and had not shown any previous signs of failing before then. I simply shut it down, and the next time it turned it on the screen had no display.

It can't detect it's LCD screen in any display options, and all brightness options have disappeared, as if it doesn't exist at all. There's no display on the screen, but other than that it still runs normally. For now, the laptop is only detecting the external monitor I have connected, which it designates as the primary display, rather than a secondary one.

However, I'm positive that it's not a hardware failure (for a weird reason I won't go into..), any advice on how to fix this, assuming that the problem is that the laptop isn't detecting the internal display? ( and not that it's a loose cable or a faulty screen..)

Hey guys,

I have a dell inspiron 600m laptop that I got 4yrs ago. However, being in college, there has been beer and water spilled on it a few times. It was being weird at first, bringing up random boxes like narrator, but I let it dry out and now use an attached keyboard instead of the laptop one (I never take it anywhere anyways), and it seems to have recovered.

However, lately the computer has been messing up, stalling and making that internal 'beep' sound, going back on webpages when I never hit anything, and generally makiing internal mistakes. I am sure that most of it is because of damage to the laptop keyboard itself. Just now it has been backspacing this message - by itself!!!

Is there a way to uninstall the laptop keyboard? Most keys work, but those that are damaged are ruining my browsing and other things. I just want to see if when I uninstall it, the weird things stop happening. There have been no other problems with my computer and no viruses have gotten into it. I am cautious with software..not with hardware though apparently

Also, if i uninstall the laptop keyboard, can I ever get it back?

Thank you!!!

A:Keyboard driver on laptop..internal damage

Well I'm not sure this will work as I have never tryed it. But you can remove the keyboard and unplug the connection to the system board. The laptop SHOULD be able to run just using your external keyboard.

I've spent the better part of 2 days trying to figure this out for my boss, she's mucked up her PC and I'm drawing blanks. She reported to me that her keyboard stopped working, and external keyboards "would not sync" either.  She works remotely, so I had her send me the PC.  Upon receiving, I was able to get USB keyboards to work, where she'd tried 3 (one brand new) and failed.   However - I still can't solve the laptop's internal keyboard.  It appears to be entirely unresponsive, but the FN light does work, so it's getting power.  When opening the on-screen keyboard, I see that: CNTRL and ALT are being recognized.  Escape is acting as the function lock/unlock.  B, S and K keys are also being recognized, but as other characters, like Scroll lock and ALT+Scroll lock.  No other keys are recognized. I've checked languages, deleted and reinstalled drivers, system restored to an older point where the keyboard did work, and a few other things I've read suggestions on, to no avail.  I'd say by now I've been through 15 different posts from Windows, Lenovo, other support sites, and have had no luck with any suggested remedy.  Anyone have any better/other ideas?  We're now out of the T450S, only have T440S in stock, and considering the improved touchpad of the T450, and her expanded memory, I don't want to downgrade unless absolutely necessary.  I'd like to fix the 450. Thanks

Hi, My Thinkpad Twist does not display anything when turned on except on external monitors. The Device manager shows a greyed out internal display icon, says it is not connected. 1. Could this be the power connect ribbon cable p/n DC002C003W00 have a fractured wire(s)? I have tested for open circuit between PWR1 and PWR2 connectors and there are 4 sequential pins which are open circuit. Is this normal? 2. The touch screen works 3. There appears to be absolutely no LED backlighting working 4. Is there a possible fix for this and if so is it the power cables or some physical problem with the ribbon cables OR is it definitely a new display that is needed using existing cables? Thanks in advance Andrew

A:Thinkpad Twist s230U no internal display, works on...

The last 4 pins on the connector are unused I have determined so it is not the power ribbon cable connector. I found two wires fractured in the LCD ribbon cable right at the point where it feeds through the twist mount. I expect this could be a common problem after use. After repairing these two wires it did not fix the screen problem. I have ordered a replacement LDVS ribbon cable and will report back once I have replaced that.

Hi everyone, This is kind of a strange problem.My internal keyboard on my Yoga X380 lower half of my keys (shift to shift area) sometimes don't respond when I press them.Keys work fine on a external usb keyboard so its the internal keyboard.This has been going on for a few months after I got the unit and the only way to fix it is to reseat the keyboard connector on the mainboard.I've worked with Lenovo support and had the keyboard + mainboard replaced but it keeps reoccurring after a few days. I work in a semi static safe environment (no carpet + hard floor/table) and my previous Lenovo X250 didn't have this issue.I also have other coworkers that use the same bench with Yoga X370 that don't have this issue. All I have connected is the power adapter, Thinkpad USB 3.0 pro dock and Plantronics Voyager Legend bluetooth headset.My usb mouse is connected to the docking station which has 2 external monitors + network cable connected.I've swapped out the power adapter and docking station, same issue. This issue seems to happen when I fullly shutdown the laptop for the day and store it in a secure cabinet.Next morning when I power it up, it has the issue (the issue never starts to happen when the unit is active, always after a full power off). I've updated to the latest BIOS 1.23. Looking for any suggestions. Thanks!

My parents have an IdeaPad V570 laptop. All of a sudden, the internal keyboard stopped working. They could only type a couple of letters and punctuation marks. However, a USB keyboard worked fine.  I immediately assumed the problem was with the internal keyboard, so I had them order a replacement. I opened up the laptop and installed it for them, but now it won't even type the few characters they could type before.  Windows 10 detects the PS/2 internal keyboard and does not indicate any problems in the Device Manager. So why is it that nothing happens when you type? Could it be a bad main board?  I had my mom uninstall the PS/2 keyboard, unplug her USB keyboard, and restart the machine. She went back to the Device Manager, and it once again detected the PS/2 keyboard, but it still won't type. I wondered if I had plugged the ribbon cable from the replacement keyboard into the main board backward, but if I had done that, would the Device Manager in Windows 10 be able to detect the PS/2 keyboard at all?

This is not the first time this has happened, where having opened the laptop to tablet mode, a cable appears to have come loose. This means that the laptop no longer recognises that the laptop is back to laptop mode, so it doesn't reactivate the keyboard. Lenovo last time fixed this saying it was a fault with the assembly, but it has happened again, this time out of the 12 month warranty, and 3 months since it last happened. I really expected better quality of manufacture and the repair seems to have been very poor. This is my work laptop and the only computer I got, and any time spent without it is crippling to my work. I am currently using an external keyboard, which means working on the move is very inconvenient. I have a YOGA 51014ISK Is there a way for me to ask Lenovo to fix their repair mistake? I seem unable to find a proper way to contact/complain regarding this. I am not happy that I have to pay for repairs again for the exact same issue so quickly after the last "fix".  Otherwise, is there a repair guide I can follow to fix this myself? I didn't see one, and I'll need to reconnect the keyboard wire inside. Thanks for your time.

My Thinkpad Yoga 15 has a problem, which may or may not be related to the BIOS update recently performed. When booting, the bootup screen only appears on an external monitor via the HDMI output. When performing the hardware tests in the BIOS, tests are done on the HDMI-connected display, the internal display does not seem to be recognized. I verified this using both Linux and Windows. It does not seem to be a hardware failure; I have been able to get the display on the internal LCD a few times, by powering down the laptop, holding the power button for about 20 seconds, then powering back on while pressing F1. The laptop will then function for a while, but loses its display after coming out of sleep. Needless to say, this is unworkable. Does anyone have any tips on how this could be fixed in a more permanent fashion or any indication to cause? BIOS does not allow me to turn off NVIDIA, or its opposite, to enable it exclusively. I also tried different drivers, from both Lenovo as well as NVIDIA and Intel, but to no avail. Any pointers appreciated.

I have a 9360 with the 3200x1800 touch screen and 16 GB of RAM.
When I connect an external 4K monitor and also use the internal laptop monitor, the external monitor flickers on and off every few seconds whenever the laptop is doing something graphically intensive (just zooming in and out of google maps is sufficient to trigger it, but lots of other things can too).
So far, I have tried two different 4K monitors, two different 9360 laptops, two different docks, connected directly to the laptop w/o the dock, a bunch of cables, and different intel graphics driver versions.  Currently running the Dell driver ( but they all have the same problem.
I can avoid the flickering if I disable the internal laptop screen when using the external screen - but that's not exactly optimal -  I'd love to be able to run both simultaneously.  I can also avoid it if I use a lower resolution monitor, but, according to the specifications, this laptop should be able to run 2 4K external monitors at 60 Hz simultaneously, and here it is choking on one + the internal display which isn't even 4K!
Has anyone else experienced this problem?

I have 3 4K Monitors connected to a TB-16 docking station.  One monitor blinks erratically and has been an issue since my first purchase in May of this year.  I am on my 3rd replacement laptop and since it arrived 6 weeks ago, it has the same issue and DELL PREMIUM support says they are working on it but I have not heard back from them for now 6 weeks.  
I've seen many posts on this similar issue.  Is this just a defect that cannot be resolved.  If so, issue a refund and this will be returned.
And Yes, I've updated every driver in the order that was recommended by the DELL technician and they also did the same.  It has gotten more erratic and ridiculous that I have to pay this much money for a laptop that is unstable.  Help me escalate this to Mr. Dell and get this working or refund me.

For 6 weeks I have had no problems driving my 30" dell from the W520 displayport at its native 2560x1600 as the single "projector" display. Today, I aroused the laptop from sleep as usual, and was greeted with a blank Monitor and the laptops internal display on, with a fixed unchangeable resolution of 640x480. after about 5 reboots (includring removing power and battery), I found a way to get the W520 panel back to 1080p,but it wont display anything on the external monitor.  The monitor works fine connected to the displayport of my dell laptop, so I dont think its anything to do with the monitor. Interestingly, If I have the monitor plugged in, and do "Detect Displays" in he windows Display->Screen Resolutoin dialogue, I get this: 1.

As of a couple of days ago it appears the internal display has completely stopped working. There is back light but no image and no mouse. How do I recover this display?

Hi guys,
My display has been working fine so far, suddenly from today my internal display doesn't work. I've restarted many times, downloaded all the latest DELL updates for the DELL XPS 13 laptop, it doesn't seem to do the trick. I do see the DELL splash screen before it just goes dark and nothing can be seen. With an external monitor I get to see everything I would expect to see, i.e. login to Windows as usual. Once I remove the external USB-C cable, used for the display, I'm plunged back into darkness. If I restart in safe mode (Network), the internal display works again, so it can't be a hardware issue. There is something wrong with the drivers, maybe caused through a Windows Update, I don't know. Help would be appreciated, I need to be able to work without the external monitor.

Just looking at mine, as I have a HP but don't use any of the buttons. Pressed a few, and the camera brings up Notepad, etc. Not that I care, but thats a different story.

Anyhoo, in the Buttons tab, click on say Video, then click Global Preferences. Is the USB option ticked? You may want to try unticking it to see if it'll help.

My monitor stays black and my keyboard lights don't come on when I boot my desktop. I can see and hear my PC running.  Here's what happened: I'd done a clean installation of Windows 7, but while I was installing the drivers it had me to restart. After restarting, my computer, would not come back on. I recall before it going off it was unpacking something I believe for the display driver, however, it had already gone through this process before the last reboot so I didn't let it complete. When my PC came back on I had no monitor or keyboard. My speakers work because I see the light come on, but I can't  see or type a thing otherwise I'd do the BIOS reboot. I did try testing it out using a different monitor and a different keyboard but I end up  experiencing the same issues. Please help any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

How do I determine which keyboard (non-backlit) and display (non-touch) I have on the T460s? Most centrally, I am considering upgrading to a backlit keyboard, and trying to decide between the two variants.

Ok, hopefully somebody can help me out here.

So I had one of my laptops plugged into an external monitor, untill tonight when I decided to take it off the monitor to fool around with it. Bad idea apparently.

After unplugging it from the monitor, the display on the laptop was a blank screen (this is what usually happens when I first unplug it). Normally, I press the Fn key and the f4 button to toggle back the display to the actual laptop screen. However, for some reason this wasn't working and I couldn't figure out why. So I press the Caps Lock key to see if the icon on the keyboard lights up just to be sure the keyboard isn't broken. Low and behold the button wasn't lighting up, and my keyboard is broken.

So now I'm stuck with a laptop that has no display all because of a broken keyboard. I do have an external keyboard, but there is no way to toggle display from that. At least none which I can find. I have tried plugging the laptop back into the monitor and pressing the display toggle button on the monitor itself, and haven't had any luck with getting a display.

The laptop has bigger issues besides the display (reboots itself during startup), and I was just about to reinstall windows/perform a system restore on it. But obviously I can't do anything without a display.

If there is anyone out there who isn't completely confused by my explanation, and has at least an idea of what to do or where to start, please let me know.

Thanks in advance.

i recently got the new logitech g15 keyboard, and i was wondering if anyone knows anything about tweaks or display configurations in addition to the standard ones included with the keyboard. More specifically output for the more popular games played and any newer ones coming out.

4 days ago my son spilt a small amount of water into his Lenovo G 530 laptop keyboard.

We have opened the back of the computer, dried it under an air conditioner and used a hair blow drier on warm. Each time we boot the laptop it beeps and nothing comes onto the screen. Is there anything else we can do? Thank you

A:Water in keyboard no display

It might be too late now, but for future reference always turn the laptop upside down on a towel or other porous surface. The "small" amount of water settles on the motherboard and corrodes and rusts the wet areas. This can short out the motherboard... In this case, I am sure you motherboard is fried

The " key on my ProBook does not display promptly when I push it. The " and ' only display after I push the space bar (after pushing the relevant key next to the RHS enter button). Is this usual with new laptops? I have not had this occur with any other HP laptop I have owned. All other keys respond in the usual way.

I have a homebuilt system using a Lanparty Ut raphics n53250cb board and a Radeon 9550D graphics card. I have 2 hard large hard drives running XP.
I have suddenly lost connectivity between the unit and the monitor and have no keyboard or mouse function. The monitor works fine with my laptop.
I have checked all the connections and they are correct and new batteries for the wireless keyboard and mouse. The wireless keyboard and mouse will not sync either. I have rebooted numerous times and the monitor will only show power saving mode.
Any help would be appreciated as this is my main business computer.

A:No Display or Keyboard Function

It sounds like the system powers up, but does nothing else? If possible reseat all you cards (video, sound and whatever else), also reseat the RAM. THen test the system. Sometimes a card can "creep" out and stall the system.

Hope this helps!
