Lenovo G560 B / G Series :: Won't Boot And Black Screen After HDD Upgrade

Jan 26, 2015

Lenovo G560 - Issue with won't boot and black screen after HDD upgrade.
 
 What happen: My laptop was working fine, no blue screen issue, no funny business at all. I bought a new SSD Intel 120 GB and thought it would be good to replace the HDD. I shutdown and disconnected the power adapter, waited a couple of minutes and removed the battery. I opened up the back case and replaced the HDD. And put all the screws back and put the battery back in.
 
Problem: The very first time I turned the power on, nothing happens besides a black screen. I pressed the dvd drive it works and opens up and closes. I waited for about 30 mins and still has blac screen. When I mean black screen, no bios menu, no logo, just a black screen with the fan sound on.
  
I have tried these:
 
1. Unplugged everything - battery, adapter, and pressed the power on button for about 60 seconds, nothing, the laptop turns on with the LED display on for both on and battery LED's. But nothing but black screen, no sound of windows loading just the fan and black screen.
 
2. I tried putting back my old 2.5" and nothing but black screen.

Lenovo U/S Series :: IdeaPad S10 Black Screen After Memory Upgrade

Feb 21, 2010

I recently upgrade my Ideapad S10 to 2 megs, which I understand it is capable of recognizing.  When I turn it on however, I only get a black screen.  Some forum posts suggest that updating the BIOS might be necessary, but the only BIOS update I can find is for Windows XP, and I am running Windows 7.

Lenovo B / G Series :: G560 - Network Disconnected After Waking Up From Hibernation

Dec 20, 2010

For the last two days or so, my Lenovo G560 laptop (running Windows 7, 64-bit, BIOS 2.10) has had problems with its (wired) network adapter after waking up from hibernation. It is shown as disconnected (same as if the cable was physically detached). The only major change I performed in the last few days was installing Service Pack 1. However, the problem only appeared about two days afterwards, so I'm not sure if this is related at all.
 
In such cases, IPCONFIG reports the following for the NIC:

Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection:
Media State . . . . . . . . . . . : Media disconnected
 
If I try IPCONFIG /RENEW, I get
 
Windows IP Configuration No operation can be performed on Local Area Connection while it has its media disconnected.
 
Hovering over the tray icon says "Not connected". Troubleshooting of course doesn't find anything. Also, there are no weird entries in Event Viewer (unless they're hidden somewhere in other views). Basically the behavior is identical to when the network cable is physically disconnected (unplugged).

Also, unplugging the network cable, waiting a few minutes, and plugging it back again doesn't do anything.
 
For now I have two workarounds:
 
-rebooting the system

-right-clicking Local Area Connection (under Network Connections), selecting DISABLE from the menu, waiting for a few moments, and then choosing the ENABLE from the context menu.

Lenovo ThinkPad L R/SL :: R51 Has Black Screen - Will Not Boot

Apr 26, 2013

My R51 was working perfectly and has been maintained over the 8 years it has been with me. I wanted to upgrade my RAM and downloaded the BIOS update and chipset drivers updates.

After powering down I pulled the old 256MB RAM sets from under the keyboard and bottom of machine. I then inserted the single 2GB RAM into the slot under the keyboard and reassembled it.

Black screen/ no boot

Took out the 2GB replaced the 256MB sets and it worked fine for a few hours as I searched out reasons why the 2GB would not work. 'Suddenly the screen goes black and the system shut down.

It will power up (battery light/ status light green) but screen is black and it will not boot. Fan is running and battery charges. I tried hitting F12 and F8 but nothing.

Lenovo T400 / T500 :: Black Screen On T420s And No Boot

Jun 7, 2013

I have a T420s that I bought a couple weeks earlier, it's a used one, so there's no warranty with it, I used it several days without any issue, I don't use it very frequently as I use my corporate one most of the time.

Someday when I wanted to turn it on, it stacks on a black screen and it beeps one beep then two other, nothing showing on the screen not even the thinkpad logo at startup, I thought it was a RAM related issue so I put the one from my corporate PC but without any luck, so I wanted to see if its graphic controller issue, I plug the VGA cable on the laptop and my TV and here I can see the thinkpad startup logo but after that I see a message on the screen telling :

"Real Time Clock Error - Check Date and Time settings. Press Esc to continue or F1 to enter setup" and when I press either one nothing happen at all, still stacks there.

Lenovo 15 Yoga Flex :: Black Screen After Memory Upgrade?

Aug 29, 2014

I have a Lenovo Flex 15 device (i5 version with 4GB ram). I upgraded it with an SSD, reinstalled Win 8.1 in UEFI mode. Everything works fine.
 
Next I replaced the 4GB memory with an 8GB version (same speed, Kingston) now the machine won't boot anymore, all it shows me is a black screen, both with power switch and novo button. If I reinsert the original ram it boots just fine again. The 8GB ram is not faulty, I tried it in another device and it works. I also tried disabling secure boot in bios but it's the same problem.

Then I turned the computer on and it was just a black screen, nothing happening. No indicators lighted up, except for power button. I cannot enter BIOS, no response whatsoever.

Oct 31, 2014

i have a new Lenovo IdeaPad Z510 (i5 Full HD with Nvidia Graphic Card). I bought it on 7th October 2014 and everything was fine under Windows 8.1 N Pro x64. But today when i started my notebook, i had a black screen for a few seconds and then it stuck in a reboot loop.
 
1. i press the power button
2. black screen for a few seconds
3. reboot and back to step 2.
 
i tried already the lenovo button, but this results in the same problem as above. I also tried to boot into bios by pressing every F1...F12 key and also Fn+F1...F12 key. And last but not least i tried to boot from Disk (Windows 7 Home Premium 32 and 64-bit, Windows 8 x64, Windows 8.1 N Pro x64 and Debian latest stable) but it didn't work, too.

Lenovo P/Y/Z Series :: Y510p With Windows 8.1 Black Screen

Feb 11, 2014

I tried to update my y510p to windows 8.1 twice now. But when the installation finishes i get a black screen with a cursor. I tried to boot in safe mode to install the right drivers, but it wont let me. It automaticaly boots and restore the previous version of windows.
 
So I'm wondering if i should take some precautions before i update to win8.1 (Like instaling the win8.1 display drivers?) 
 
Maybe a better question is if I sould at all update to windows 8.1?

Lenovo P/Y/Z Series :: Y580 Black Bars On Screen?

Jul 25, 2013

I purchased a Y580 a while back, and I am not getting black bars on the monitor (shown below). At first it seemed to be there randomly. But now it is on constantly. Opening or closing the screen at different angles does not change it. If I connect an external monitor, it has no issues. I can also see the black bar when windows is booting up as well. And it shows when I am in BIOS.

Lenovo Z50-75 P/Y/Z Series :: Black Screen After Windows 8.1 Updates - No Cursor

Nov 27, 2014

I have a new Lenovo Z50-75 with FreeDOS - I made a Windows 8.1 installation, and all went fine.
 
After installing the around 70 updates - at one point it reboots and I get a black screen, right after shortly seeing the Lenovo Logo ( entering BIOS works ).
 
It is not booting Windows at all - I can not enter Safe Mode therefore, and I do not get any cursor.
  
The behaviour is reproduceable, done this 2 times. Also when it hangs in the black screen, the van get reall busy, lound and the notebook gets hot.

Lenovo ThinkPad W Series :: W520 Random Sleeping And Black Screen

Dec 7, 2012

Btw my mobo,cpu,memory i believe were all replaced last time i took it in with this issue... Still getting it consistently:
 
Random Black Screens and Random Sleeping: [URL] ...
 
Black Screen: [URL] ...
 
I thought before maybe its Bluetooth related as sometimes when screen would turn black and then come back, I would get a 'Bluetooth Device Not Discoverable'. So turned off Bluetooth in the BIOS, but still having display/sleep issues.

I removed hte Lenovo Power Manager/PM Driver, and turned off sleeping in the Windows power settings (in every setting including if Low Battery Action).

Lenovo P/Y/Z Series :: IdeaPad Y560 / Radeon 5730 - Black Screen

Jan 27, 2013

I got an ideapad y560 0646 with i7 and radeon 5730 without switchable graphics. After starting, the windows logo appears and afterwards just a black screen. No windows logon. Starting with standard vga drivers is possible. I am currently running windows 7 prof 64 bit. I remember that i installed windows 7 prof 32 bit in november 2011 and after installing the graphic drivers from lenovo homepage i faced the same issue.

So I continued using windows 7 64 bit. i think there was a windows update which caused the issues for windows 7 64 bit. I installed the latest drivers but this didnt work. i think this is no hardware issue because ubuntu is running fine. i would like to try the old drivers which came with the y560 on cd. unfortunately i cant find the cd.
 
Does some have the old driver cd and could upload the drivers or name the file of the driver so i can download it from the web?

Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga S Series :: Windows 8.1 Update - S440 Black Screen With Flickering Cursor

Oct 20, 2013

I have an S440. I've had it for one week. Two days ago I downloaded the Windows 8.1 update from the store. Since then, when I start up the computer, it doesn't even taken me to the 'sign in' screen. There's just a black screen. When I move the cursor, it briefly appears, flickers, then disappears again.

I understand this is an issue with the graphics drivers. So I ran Windows in safemode and disabled Intel R HD Graphics family and AMD Radeon HD  8600 series graphics drivers.

This, unfortunately, hasn't fixed the problem. It still boots to a black screen with an occasionally flickering cursor. I'm currently running in safemode.

Lenovo B / G Series :: G555-0873 Black Screen / No Splash / No Bios / Not Even Caps Lock Lights

Feb 9, 2012

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