Question about Lenovo Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Laptop display screen problem lenovo E520 My screen started to have problems with colours. (oranges became blue) by adjusting the screen slightly I could fix this. over time this problem became worse, and when the screen did not show correct colours the mouse does not work. Now the screen has gone grey, without an image, with slight widely spaced vertical stripes and it is very difficult to even get a start up screen. Laptop works perfectly when attached to an external monitor. Please can anyone diagnose the fault or point me in the right direction?

My first thought was that the graphics card component in the machine had gone wrong, but this would be more likely to go quickly I think, and you can use an external monitor, so the graphics card should be OK.
It therefore looks like either the inverter for the screen or the screen itself has broken down.
Either of these requires fairly specialist repair and my advice would be to find out how much it would cost and consider whether or not it would be more economic to put that money towards a more up-to-date machine, depending how old yours is.
I also found a pdf format manual here:
in which you may find more information to help your decision.
Hope this is helpful, if so would you please register that with Fixya

Where is the Lenovo 3000 care button, because the button I push does not produce any reaction. I have the same problem as zhongxi_98

I think that you must be "quick" -- as soon as you see the "prompt", or even slightly anticipating -- press the key.
If it is a BLUE-coloured key, be sure to press both the BLUE-coloured 'FN' key _AND_ the other BLUE-coloured key, at the same time.

Before i answer ung problem,i asked question first. is your monitor near to aircon? if it's near to aircon the magnet of your aircon is the cause why your monitor have defferent colours. if you're not near to aircon you can adjust the color of the monitor by adjusting the small thing at the back of the monitor. you must open the monitor case.

I think as per your question this seems to display resolution problem happens some time with games.

For this follow these steps
1. Switch on the Laptop
2. When you get screen before use F8 function keys for few seconds until you got a list of options.
3. Then select "Safe Mode"
4. After entering into safe mode then reset the default display settings to 800by600 and apply.
5. Restart the system.

Hope this information is useful

Thanks & Regards

Do Rick's 1st solution of trying the external monitor.

Colour problems with projector

In short If the reds show as red, The greens show as green & Blue shows as blue. I would say thats as good as it can project. It's hard to judge color without seeing it for ones self but usually DLP projectors that use a colorwheel do not have perfect color.
