Screen doesn't work after sleep/hibernate-Legion Y540

2020-10-18, 7:59 AM



Hoping someone might have some ideas to resolve this issue. 


Every time I close the lid on my laptop, placing it into hibernate mode, then open it back up again an hour or so later the screen does not show any picture. The screen backlight appears (ie the screen is a slightly lighter black) so is obviously working but no picture is shown. The screen eventually comes back on again after several attempts at holding the power button for a hard re-start - risking losing any unsaved data on the hibernating machine. 


I have updated windows, BIOS and display drivers in an attempt to resolve this but with no impact.


Lenovo help have said I will need to re-install windows and format my laptop - a complete nightmare and days of work to get everything re-installed and working again as a small business. I would have thought there may be a way to roll back drivers or similar to try and resolve the issue before wiping windows from the system?


Hoping for some more ideas if anyone has any? - before I undertake a full format as a last resort.


Thanks in advance.
