Go the their webiste and make sure you have got all their latest updates.

Try turning the hybernation off and see if the screen behaves correctly when you close and open the laptop.

This can also indicate a motheroard problem. beware... it may stop working at all.. so if you have any data in it that you need, i would suggest purging it on DVDs. and backing up (otherwise you will pay couple hundreed bbucks later for recovery in case the computer deis).



For now, just trun off the hybernation and see if it works.

1. Take off the the power plug
2. take off the battery
3. press and hold the power button for 10-15 seconds


Now try turning it on, if it still doesn't work, check in your manual how to RAM cover, and take the RAMs out (before you do this repeat stpes 1-3). After the ram is out, try turning it on if you hear sirens , that could be at least some indication that your motherboard is alive. if no sirens --- than you got bad news.

So at least you will now if there is a chance if the motherboard is not dead.

SOURCE: Lenovo ThinkPad SL500 backlight not working

You can check it with numlock key .
When you power up the cvomputer press num lock key if num lock LED is on and off then your computer gives display fine.
But if it is constant then there is not problem in your screen.
When you power up the computer press F8 key if you can see safe mode and other menu then your screen is ok then enter in enable vga mode then change screen resolution to 1024*768 .But if same problem then enter in safe mod and uninstall graphic driver then install graphic driver again .
When you powe up the computer press F1 or F2 or "del" key if you are able to see bios then make sure SATA is disable and Your harddrive is recognized there.
Let me know if you need further assistance.
Thanks for using FixYa.

Dark monitor


Hello,
If your LCD screen on your laptop is really dark and pressing the brightness function keys does not make it any better then you probably have a failing backlight. This pretty much means, time to either replace the screen altogether or buy a new laptop.
You can get screens off ebay for about $130

I have a blank screen when I start up my Lenovo SL510 ThinkPad. The system starts fine but it is a blank screen


If the ThinkPad appears to boot up and the hard disk LED flashes, then the problem could be the back light. This fault can be caused by a faulty inverter or a faulty CCFL lamp. Please click on this link to determine the fault and fix :-
