I received a Y700 Touch 15ISK as a replacement for another Lenovo computer that broke under warranty. After about a day and a half of use, I decided to try attaching it to my External monitor (a 23" 1920x1080p monitor by Acer) which I had used with multiple other computers with no issues. As soon as I plug it in, my screen turns completely black. I waited a few seconds for something to happen, Nothing. Neither screen shows anything. I hook up my desktop to the same monitor, and it works fine.
I can hear sounds, like the sound of an Administrative confirmation, or a external device being plugged in. Therefore, I know the computer itself is still functional. However, I cannot get any image at all.
Things I have tried:
Fn+F2 to check that the backlight was not turned off (Also flashed a light on the screen, and got nothing)
Fn+F3 to try and see if I had the computer on external monitor only. This also showed nothing.
Hard reboot (holding down power key): Nothing. Even the POST screen did not show.
I called Lenovo and they are taking forever as normal to do anything. I just had to go through a 7 week warranty claim for my previous computer, and the one they send me breaks almost as soon as I get it.
Has anyone else had this issue? Are there any basic fixes? I teach a class on Monday and absolutely HAVE to have a computer to teach.
Any help would be appreciated.
