Question about Lenovo Y550 (4186-58U) PC Notebook

Open Question

My lenovo y550's screen suddenly went blank. I tried restarting and the fan comes on the the lights turn on, but the hard drive doesn't appear to be doing anything and the screen is blank. I've tried hooking it up to an external monitor and holding the power button and neither one helped.

SOURCE: Blank screen upon startup

Try taking out the hard disk, plug in power and see if you have a display on your screen or external monitor. if same thing happen, try taking out the memory card. If you hear a beep sound it's a faulty mem. card, if no beep sound appears I suspected it's a motherboard faulty.

SOURCE: How do I Restore my Lenovo Y550 back to Defaults.

If you have not got a Restore CD then contact Lenovo to purchase a Recovery CD for your model laptop.
The other way is to do a new Windows install. Use a Windows installation CD; it must match the Windows version on the Windows Product Code label on the bottom of your laptop.
You will also need to download the device drivers for your model laptop from the Lenovo WEB support site, make sure the download the correct XP or Vista version of the device drivers which matches the Windows version you are installing.

You may need to remove all the power from the device including the CMOS Battery. As well try using an external display to see if there is any display.

'blank sceen appear on my lenovo ideapad S10 but lenovo and the windows manage to appear after tunning it on and blank afterward


Hi licah,
It seems that your computer is not booting into windows properly at all.
You mentioned you see Lenovo and windows appear then the screen goes Blank afterwards, you can try to Boot directly into the Hard Drive manually just to get everything working or I mean Booting up again but this is a small shot from what you are experiencing but is also worth the try.
turn your S10 machine OFF then turn it back ON and keep on tapping f12 on the keyboard you should see Boot menu on the list Select HDD then press enter this should boot into the Hard Drive, if it does not then you may need to send the system back to Lenovo for a possible reinstallation of windows or on most time we also have the Hard Drive replaced in many cases.
I hope that this Helps.
Have a nice day,
mvincentc

Take out your ram sticks and put them back in. Also disconnect your hard drive and reconnect it. Then restart. If this doesnt help you may have a blown power supply.

Format laptop lenovo y550


Note: Format would delete all of the data(like pictures, documents.) from the computer. Make sure, you back up all of your important data before formating the hard drive.
1. Insert operating system disk. 2. Shut down and restart the computer.As soon as, you restart the computer, start tapping 'Spacebar' key. Now, this would start loading from disk. 3.Hit F8 to accept the license agreement. 4.Hit enter 5. Enter Enter again and follow the on screen instruction and this would format your hard drive.
Note: once you format the hard drive, you would need to install drivers as well. Make sure you have the drivers and utilities disk as well.

Black blank screen Lenovo 3000 N100


You say the laptop all of a sudden flashed off.

How old is the laptop? You may have suffered one of two things? First of all, if the hard drive will not boot back up, even after using the recovery discs, then that would explain it powering off. I have seen this happen on old desktop hard drives.

Next, try to get the transformer or adapter tested. It may not be putting out enough amperage to run the laptop.

Acer Aspire 5010.. Power on, but Blank screen/ hard drive light also not.


Hi,
This could be a Power/Switch Problem.
Faulty Hard-Drive.
Solution:- Leave the laptop turned Of And charge the battery to Full Capacity. ( usually between 4-16 Hours ) depending on capacity.
This will also fully charge the CMOS ( memory battery )
then boot the laptop up, and see if this solves your problem.
If not i,d suggest running a scandisk or hard-drive diagnostic program, to ensure that you have no Viruses-bad sectors on the hard-drive.
If you need further assistance please don,t hesitate to ask for more help and advice.

Black screen not booting


check both your power and video connections to the monitor, sounds more like a monitor power issue.
if the connections appear ok, but screen still blank, try connecting a known good working monitor from somewhere else and see if it works with your pc, if it does, your original monitor is faulty, if it doesn't, you have a pc video issue.
