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 (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

To get straight to the point, I have a Lenovo Y700-17ISK and it has a black screen when attempting to turn it on. The power button is lit, and the keyboard flashes once (keyboard turns off after flash) when initially pressing the power button. The only indication of it being on is the power button being lit. Hard Drive is not running, fans spins briefly (5-10 seconds), and the power button stays on. Is this motherboard failure? Thank in advance.

I bought a Lenovo Y700 this week and I just realise that there are several (7) marks on screen under the antiglare protection. These marks are black and you can only see them only with white color on screen. These marks are not dead pixel neither stuck, they are something like dust under the screen protector.  Are anyone experience th?s problem??

Spoiler (Highlight to read)  Hi, Computer goes blank (it still works), keyboard is not responding, neither touchpad. It happens approx. twice an hour, when it's charged or on battery, using both graphic cards (one or another).I've purchased my y700 couple months ago, problem occurs all the time. I've sent it twice to service center, but they did not find any problem. Configuration:Genuine windows 10 x64All drivers are up to date (downloaded from using BIOS 35 or 37, makes no difference. Team, could you please help?

Yes, you've got a few malware entries in there (a CoolWebSearch hijack, and a couple of trojans), though it's not going to be easy to remedy without seeing the complete HJT log. Can you possibly copy the log to floppy and then post it from the other computer?

What's the Windows OS?
eg. Is it Windows 2000 sp4? Or is it WinXP Pro sp2?

What version of HijackThis is it? v1.99.1 is the latest version.
Is HijackThis.exe running from a permanent folder, and not from within a zip file in a Temp folder?
This is important. Make sure HijackThis.exe is installed in eg.
C:\Program Files\HijackThis
Re: your questions at the end of your post:
Don't worry about WINNT / winnt and System32 / system32
They are both exactly the same (whether smallcase or uppercase or a mixture).
svchost.exe is legitimate and is an integral part of Windows NT/2k/XP (Services Host).
It is normal to have multiple instances of it running.

Anyway, try this for now...
If possible, please download the following apps and transfer them to the infected pc.
CWShredder (free standalone version)
AboutBuster (tutorial)

You will need to unzip to a folder on the good pc,
then open AboutBuster.exe
click the Update button
download the updates
then copy the entire AboutBuster folder over to the infected pc.
Download the attached file.
The zip contains a .bat and a .reg file.
Unzip them and copy the .bat and .reg file over to the infected pc.
Make a copy of them on the desktop and in My Documents.
You could also run them both directly from a floppy.
However, don't run either just yet.
I will tell you what they do and when to use them later in the instructions below.

On the infected pc...

Boot into Safe Mode

Close all windows.

Run HJT scan again

I recently bought this laptop and I have two problems:1. Especially when the screen is black, there is a green light on the upper part of the screen. I don't know what causes it maybe a led or something is installed badly (it's a 5 cmē area). Should I take it back and ask for a new one?2. This problem is related to scaling. When it is set to 100%, everything is small but crystal clear. When at 150%, everything looks normal but some apps like Steam, BitTorrent... are blurry like they were just zoomed on. Reinstalling windows and drivers should solve this? Simply reinstalling drivers didn't help.Thanks!

A:Lenovo Y700-15ISK screen issues

I don't know anything about your first problem (it may be a hardware problem), but I do know something about the second. Some programs (Steam, for example) aren't made for high-dpi screens. for these programs that appear blurry, right click on their icon (on the desktop), and click properties. Under the compatibility tab, check "Disable display scaling on high DPI settings". This should work after you restart the program.

I purchased my Y700 17,3' april 2016. I still can't figure out if the screen has a protective film or not. The screen looks grey, and I can se there is a hole around the camera. Is there a screen-film that sould be removed?

A:Protective screen-film on Lenovo Y700 17.3"?

Yes indeed there is an antiglare film attached to the display. You can remove it using a hairdryer, carefuly to heat it up and remove the film. There is a video on youtube doing that, but it needs attention as not to destroy the display. But if you remove it you are going to have at least 2 times more reflection on your screen

Hi, I bought my Ideapad Y700 in December 2015, so it's half year old. Warranty is 2 years after entering S/N on Lenovo website. Please only reply to this if you are form Lenovo support. Question: Will opening back lid of the laptop to check for connection between screen and rest of the laptop void my warranty ? I suspect it's a cable that got lose, but I would like to be sure if it's worth even checking. Is it ok to open screws to have a look inside or will that void my warranty ? Additional information: Screen blinks even when booting, before operating system and also in BIOS. So it really looks like hardware problem.

Hello, my lenovo (5 months use) has this issue it doesn't turn on, only the led indicator of power and battery, it was after i uninstalled my internal graphics driver, but i think its like a statistic energy bug, because when i opened the pc, i disconnected the battery and pushed the power button several times and then put the AC power cable and then it turned on. But when i shut it down again have to do the same procces again and again until it turns on and it doesnt always work. The only way to keep my pc on is to put it in sleep mode, never turn it of completely. Can someone help me with this issue? Thanks!

I would like to know if for the Lenovo IdeaPad Y700 Gaming Laptop, taking off the glossy screen protection (which makes the image blurry and shows the colours on the screen not really good) does void the warranty or not? This is quite a decisive factor for me, in comparison to the Dell Inspirion 7559, which doesn't have this issue, as only after taking off this screen protection, the screen actually becomes very nice. Here is a video, so you can understand what I'm referring to: Minute 4:40 - you can see how this guy takes the screen protection off.A short answer of yes, or no in regards to voiding the warranty by doing this, would be sufficient.Thank you

A:Lenovo y700 screen doesn't wake up from sleep

Hi bouga ,
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
Checking on the support site for   Notebook IP Y700-15ISK I7 , seems no BIOS update needed for this model. 
Typically even on Win Vista and Windows 7 that issue with sleep has been related to hybrid features. 
Method 1 : You may try to disable it using the cmd elevated for the command  powercfg -h off . 
Check on this video link for the guide steps 
Method 2 : Setting Power option to High Performance instead of conservation mode . then manualy setting sleep on the start icon 
Continue to apply neccessary updates that may correct this issue but for the time being , you can use Method 2 as alternate solution if method 1 fail to correct it.

Previously it showed Blue Screen every time I boot my Y460; few seconds after the Window Logo. No matter how many times I reformate, it still showing Blue Screen, indicating STOP 0x00000116 and atikmpag.sys error. Subsequently, I went into the BIOS and changed the settings on the graphics switchable to discrete graphics. However its getting worst now because there is no display (totally black with no background light) every time I on my y460. Hence I need assistance and solutions, thanks.

It loaded the lenovo screen, with the options to access bios, then loaded a black screen with a blinking underscore.... I can't do anything at all except from the bios.... I've been searching for hours, Microsoft support for 2 hours straight... And now I just feel like crying.... Please help me!

A:Getting a black screen on my new Y700

I'm just guessing here from experience, but if it was like my problem with my old laptop it was an amd driver issue. So try either updating your driver to latest one or rolling back to previous one.  This is your display driver I'm talking about.

A:Black Screen/Blank screen after screen replacement

Not all laptop screens are the same. It is important to get a "replacement" screen, not a "compatible" one.

On the back of the laptop screen is a product sticker (you can only read this before you install the screen). On that sticker is the manufacturer and model #. You can use that number to find exact replacements.

How did you come to choose the LG screen?

Hi, I live in Macedonia and I bought the laptop less than a month ago. Just now when I tried to turn it on, the power indicator turns on, the battery is being used but the hard drive light is not flashing at all and the monitor shows absolutely nothing, not even the logo. What the hell? I want my money back if it's already having problems!

A:Y700, Black Screen of Death

Hi, There's 4 lights at the front of the laptop, you should have the two left hand side lights on, power, and battery, these should be solid white, or the second light (battery) may be orange depending on the battery level. Have you tried Fn key + up arrow? I.e. make sure brightness is all the way up? If so try the opposite (Fn key + down arrow) because I have a laptop that Windows 10 install made the brightness levels reversed. If none of these work do you even get the Lenovo symbol during startup? If not and the laptop screen has never turned on then you have a dead unit and need to swap it our for a new one, contact the retailer for an RMA. CheersMatt

Y700 keep on getting BSOD & wont turn , screen stay black with backlight all on. sometime BSOD appear and the whole screen scramble, i must force shutdown in order to turn it back on. Tried updating all my driver to the lateest and my bios is ver.30>> tried almost everything, the only thing yet to try is reformat/reinstall window. this laptop is brought 3 months ago. not sure why's this happenening


I think the best course of action in this scenario is a system restore.
If you get a BSOD after that also, then it is a hardware failure and most probably the motherboard will have to be replaced under warranty.

I was trying to remedy the "plugged in but not charging" problem, clicked on something in the power section in a screen that came up after clicking on the power icon, and the screen went blank. I tried re-starting. I removed the battery and AC and held the power button for 30s. No change. When I power up, everything seems normal until the Lenovo splash screen comes up, the spinny dots start going, then the screen goes blank and stays blank. If I pull the AC, the screen  blinks on for 0.1 second before the machine dies. HELP!

Hey everyone I did a bit of research and this seems to have been an issue for a while or has been in the past Was upgrading to windows I first had to restart my pc cause it was initially stuck on that preparing to install problem with the green bar being stuck around It then got through that and began the installation process with the big circle and rebooting process However around when I last looked at it it was just black screen this stayed this way for about - hours I then decided to reboot the pc and it has now booted to the login screen Is this a known (no screen just Black Screen to blank) but cursor of Doom Booted login bug or could there be a possible issue The problem seems a bit different Black Screen of Doom but Booted to login screen (no cursor just blank) as some people I saw have had to fall back on PC restore points etc So not sure if it installed or what could be the problem Also side note I upgraded my pc when windows first publically released but rolled back because I had about min shutdown times So not sure what is Black Screen of Doom but Booted to login screen (no cursor just blank) going on and any info would be greatly appreciated Thanks

A:Black Screen of Doom but Booted to login screen (no cursor just blank)

I never had a problem upgrading like you've experienced but I experiencing Windows 10 upgrading process is the longest time taken ever compared to previous versions. It took me 1 hour+ to finished.

Play around a little bit to get used to it then did a clean install. No problem arise, seems working fine.

The point is, problems always happen after upgrading, to solve it just perform installation from scratch (clean install).

I have Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit. So, these are my problems described in the title. I cannot change desktop from black, only can set a picture as a background.

When I am in pictures folder for example, I see blank or black thumbnails.
When I right click and go to personalize, I can see black themes instead of actual pictures.

I tried almost everything.
- reinstalling video driver
- clearing thumbnail from disk cleanup
- resetting dwm.exe
- going into safemode and then restaring into normal windows
- I tried fixing shell by using "fixshell"
- clearing & repairing registry errors
- ran an error checker
- ran a file checker

I have Microsoft Office 2010 - I heard that it could be the issue, but maybe I am not right, anyway...

I attached a print screen photo.

And, I am hopeless, any help please? Thanks

Office 2010 should not be a factor here. Public pics folder is empty - it should have sample pics in it.

Yes, there is something wrong with this model. A lot of other people have had the same issue where the laptop will no longer boot after a long sleep or shutdown. There is a BIOS update that is being released sometime by the end of the month to fix this issue. I do not know if Lenovo has a USB flash function, but if they don't you should probably exchange for another or wait for the BIOS update, so that you can flash the new BIOS as soon as you get the replacement.

Hi there. I'm just hoping that I can find the solution as soon as possible. So I tried playing some casual games yesterday and all of a sudden the game froze and the image started tearing apart. Next thing you know it, the screen went blank. So I force shut down it and reboot, but after the Lenovo logo, the screen goes blank. There's a faint glow, but there's no image or cursor. Could it possibly be that the GPU crashed and there's no graphic to power the display? Or should I try entering Recovery Mode or Safe Mode to switch the display graphic to Intel HD? Besides, how do I enter Safe/Recovery Mode since I'm on Windows 10. Any help would be much appreciated.

Windows Backup was disabled in "Services" for an unknown reason. Also, I was looking for "Backup and Restore" at the top of the list of services instead of Windows Backup at the very bottom of the list. I didn't look in "Linux Backup and Restore", either. Duh. Anyway, good news, easy fix. Done.


"Start > right click "Computer" > select "Manage" > select "Services" > select "Windows Backup" from list and double click it. When the pop up window opens, if the pull down says "This service is disabled" click on the pull down and select Manual. Click "Apply". "OK". Done.

Now, just go to backup and restore in the Maintenance folder on the start menu program list, click it and Backup menu is there ready to go.

A:100 15iBD - blank screen after lenovo logo

Hi Daisuke , 
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
Would you have the machine number ? Check on the machine number from the sticker or check it from here ,just keep your serial number confidential.
Best way to proceed is to isolate the issue . You can shutdown the PC and unplug the ac adapter , remove the battery (if removable) and press and hold down the power button for 12 seconds to drain remaining power . 
Use the Novo button instead to turn on where you expect to see the Novo Menu . Choose BIOS set up and verify if the harddrive is detected . You can F9 to reload defaults and F10 to save and exit. 
If the BIOS screen and tabs are working then we are safe to conclude that on the machine level , the laptop is working so that would now lead us to Boot issue either bad windows start up or bad display driver. 
Try to connect it to any available external monitor  ( press any FN keys to toggle if needed ex. FN + F10 ).
Any display on the external?  How is pressing ctrl alt del , any changes ? Tap on caps/ num lock ,see if any indicator led going on off too. 
Update us how it goes.

Hello Kitkat4life and welcome to the sevens forum:

1. Can you get into safe mode, try and see if it does it in safe mode.
2. When the laptop does come on have you tried to run your anti-virus to see if you have a virus.

Lenovo z500. Windows 10. When I turn on screen is black. Nothing showing. No cursor or flickering. Can hear computer Tring to boot and keyboard lights come on. Have tried pressing all function keys to no avail. I'm away for a conference and have no tools to open up and remove battery. This happened yesterday but then when I randomly moved screen it came on, but problem reoccurring when I tried to boot up again. No amount of screen moving helping this time.  Has never happened before.  I had to put it through air port scanners yesterday during travel. Has never affected laptop before but I did read somewhere about a magnetic field perhaps affecting it but not sure what that means. Any help greatly appreciated as without it my presentation at this conference is screwed! Thanks!

If you haven't already, hold the power button (about 5-10 seconds) until the machine shuts down and then you can turn it back on. You can also substitute this step with taking out the battery.

I have a Lenovo n580 with win 8.1 installed. A few hours ago, while using it, the screen went completely black. I restarted by holding down the power button. The Lenovo logo appears, along with the circling balls to indicate booting, but nothing else. No desktop, no nothing. I tried the following instructions, but still have the same problem.

1. I turned off by holding down the power button.
2. Unplug, then remove the battery.
3. Held down the power button for 3 minutes. Plug lap back in.
4. Turn laptop on by holding down the power button (did not put the battery back in).
5. Lenovo logo appears, circling balls to indicate booting, still have a black screen.

I also use this laptop for work so I need to resolve this problem. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you.

A:Screen goes black after powering on Lenovo Z51

Hi LABinz , 
How was it if you connect it to an external monitor ?
Try it also on safe mode as this would isolate probable hardware or software issue . 
If the same non display black screen even on external monitor occur then it relates more of probable drivers or graphic card issue as it demands greater resolution than it is on safe mode.  
Furthermore, turning on the machine using the novo button would display a menu outside windows and should show up on the laptop screen (to isolate LCD / LCD cable issue).
Update us how things go.

I use Win 8.1. After installing Win updates, the PC worked fine for the rest of the day. When it went to sleep at night, the screen was black when I tried to wake it up in the morning. The lights were blinking so the PC was apparently working. I searched the net on my laptop and I restarted the PC with shift/F8 and on button. It worked just fine for one day. The next night it went to sleep and the screen remained black in the morning. I can turn it off and on, the lights are blinking. I tried rebooting with shift/F8, F1 and F12. None of these worked. I would appreciate suggestions.Thanks, Chris

Hello My lenovo Yoga 900 is less than 2 months old and whether I am charging or using battery only, the screen periodically goes black. I have to wiggle the screen around a bit before it displays properly again. HAs anyone experienced this problem.  Essentially, I could be typing and then screen goes blank as if trying to converse energy and despite continuing typing, it remains that way I then move the screen back and forth or sometimes press the windows logo at the bottom of the screen. Pressing the windows logo sometimes will result inthe screen displaying for the second or so i press the logo and then goes black again. I would like the screen to continue display certaininly whilst i am using the laptop!

Lenovo B50-30Hello,When I boot my laptop everything seems to be working.As soon as I enter my password and login to my windows account I get a black screen with nothing but a cursor.I am able to Ctrl-alt-delete, but the task manager wont open.The laptop ignores F1, F8 and F12. So I cant Boot in Safe mode or enter the BIOSI have error checked the HDD with my desktop and everything seemed fine.But it wasn't, the error check didn't solve anything.Is there anyone who knows what might be wrong with my laptop, and if it's repairable?- Mathieu

A:Lenovo, Black screen with cursor

You said you removed the HDD.With no HDD, the laptop should go to the setup screen of the BIOS.Thee you can set boot options. Set it to boot first from USB or CD.With your other PC prepare a boot CD or USB with some diagnostics.Boot diagnostics can be found elsewhere.For your laptop, this might work:Lenovo Bootable DiagnosticsDoes that work for you?,151265.0.html

New to the thread.... not sure if i'm posting right, soo correct me if u want =)
Anyway.. yesterday I turned my computer on and got the screen "Sorry for the convenience blah blah blah... Start Windows Normally, Safe Mode...ect.
I chose Start Windows Normally, which did indeed start windows normally, but I wasn't sure what caused this problem in the first place, so i ignored it. I turned my computer off.

Later i turned my computer back on and was confronted by another screen, this time a Blue screen.. A Stop error, can't exactly remember the error, but said something about "memory dump'...
I eventually got avoided a problem with this screen and got into windows.. However this morning, when i turn the computer on, I was forced to use 'Last Known Good Configuration"

Whats going on? I did scans on Norton, Adaware & Spybot.

Please help!!

A:Blue Screen, Black Screen??? Stop Error Code?

Hi Kirstie, computers are great when they work huh? These stop errors and blue screens of death can have many causes. Sometimes they occur when a computer is getting older and some piece of hardware is going bad, like a memory stick for instance. Other times these errors occur after installing a new program or doing a windows update. They can be quite difficult to pin down sometimes as well. I would be glad to help you find the cause of the error if you will answer a few questions for me. By answering these questions I should be able to determine the cause and help you to correct it.

Here are some questions for you to answer that will help me. Just answer them the best you can and if you dont know an answer its ok. If you already answered anything I'm asking in your first post just skip over it.

1). What kind of computer do you have? Laptop? Desktop? Dell, HP, Ect?
2). Whats your level of experience? Novice, intermediate, expert, or dont know squat?
3). What operating system are you using? Xp Home or XP Pro?
4). What antivirus are you using? Are you using a firewall?
5) Please tell us a little about your computer. How old is your computer? What size Hard drive does it have?, processor, ram, Bios ver. Ect.
6). Do you have an Xp disk for this computer?
7). Does your computer have a floppy drive, CD drive, Ect.?
8). Do you have access to another working computer with an internet connection?
9). Did you noticed this problem occuring after installing anything recently?
10). Has your computer done a windows update recently?
11). Have you made any changes to the computer recently? Hardware or software?

and anything else that might help us help you. Remember we are trying to help from a forum so all we have to go on is what you can tell us.

I will monitor this thread throughout the day. If you resolve this problem on your own or with the info I provided please let me know so I can move on to other issues. Also please mark this thread solved using the thread tools option located at the top of this thread and selecting solved from the drop down menu when your computer is working correctly and you are through with this thread.

Hi all, I'm currently experiencing a black / blank screen after the dell logo (my notebook is Dell).

I have tired booting into safe mode by F8 but to no avail since im on windows 8.1.

i have tired to reset the residue power as well.

i have tried to crtl alt del but it wont respond.

I can't take out the battery since it is internal as well.

however the black screen allows me to see my cursor.

Any solutions out there?

And it will just stay blank after that for unlimited amount of time.

A:Black / Blank Screen

Hi there

The best will be to reload that machine. I hope you have backedup your files.

The only way that I know of to get the recovery options is to force shutdown the laptop during boot 3 times. This will open the recovery options. Lets firstly try accessing safe mode to try and backup your files. If you don't need your files or have already made a backup skip the following step and Recover the system.

-----------------------------Safe Mode-------------------------------------
From the recovery menu you can click:
"See advanced repair options"
"Advanced Options"
"Windows Startup Settings"
"Enable Safe Mode" then restart.
From the recovery menu you can click:
"See advanced repair options"
"Dell backup and recovery"

Hope this helps

A:screen blank or black

If you can hear the laptop running normally but nothing on the screen, the backlight may need replacing.Look closely at the screen whilst shining a torch on it. If you can see a faint image of Windows then you need to get the backlight replaced because the existing one has blown (just same as a light bulb blows when it's worn out).It's a DIY job if you know what you're doing, otherwise take it to a laptop repair shop.message edited by phil22

I have a Toshiba S126 Laptop, has worked flawlessly since purchase. Yesterday, I installed a new Lexmark printer, and it worked until about 3:00pm. then my screen went black. couldn't get it to do anything, so I rebooted. During boot up, the Toshiba screen appears, the command lines appear, and the initial Windows screen appears, then it goes completely black. The hard drive continues to spin, and I assume load the rest of Windows.
At this point I am stuck, and any help is appreciated.

A:Screen goes Blank/Black

Hi Mike,
Try starting in 'Safe Mode', and uninstall the printer drivers to see if that rectifies the problem, or in XP try 'Safe Mode' and 'System Restore'. Sounds like the printer installation has possibly corrupted the Video Drivers.

Hi, I've been having troubles with my laptop screen. Upon reopening my laptop from sleep mode, the screen remains black instead of loading up the login screen. I've plugged in an HDMI external monitor and it displays fine so I know it is the laptop screen. Also if I restart the laptop, the laptop screen works fine. I've tried updating graphics drivers and adjusting external monitor options (Win+P) but with no success. Any suggestions on what I should do? I've had this laptop for a while now and there is no valid warranty.Thank you

Hi guys! I've got a Lenovo Y50-70 (2015) with a GTX960M under the hood which I bought in January. I've been having a strange problem with my screen. Sometimes out of the blue my screen just goes black. But its not like the screen turns off, the keyboard and the borders of the screen are lit, its just I can't see the cursor or anything I had on the screen originally. The problem doesn't resolve itself unless I hold down the power button and shut it down. I've had this problem at least 4 times and since I'm going to start going to uni soon, I'd rather not have the problem of losing important work if the issue does happen again Thanks in advance!

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.
