LENOVO B540P SCREEN FLICKERS WHEN BOOTUP AND THEN GO BLACK

Hi ive got a Lenove B540 and when I power on only get a black screen with pink lines thrue it. I tried connecting a 2nd screen to the hdmi but nothing. ive used another desktop and connected the ideacentre to it with the hdmi cable to the in... and the screen works fine but without the touch on the screen. I also bought a new cpu and its stil the same Ithought the display is working thru the cpu unit. I think its the display card and picked up from previous posts on this forum that the displaycard is intergrated with the motherboard. Just want to make sure before I buy the Motherbord if its possible that the lcd creen or pc bord could be the problem ? looking forward to hear from anyone

HI.

@Julius2 Smiley Happy

 

To rule that is a hardware failure, if possible enter bios if once within the same image will appear black screen with the line that you mention it, it is a failure of the graphics chip.

 

Regards.

Thanks for the quick reply. No I cant even see anything on the screen only the pink lines in the backround you can see a message looks like it says safe mode. Not sure.

Nor use RECOVERY, then you have a fault on the motherboard (graphics chip).

 

If you have another computer, you can download and burn the Ubuntu Live CD using a very simple application called ImgBurn. Otherwise, you can bug one of your friends to help you burn a copy.and try linux, but for what he says will not be possible, I mention possible solutions.

 

Regards.

Welcome to the Lenovo Community Julius2 !

 

Just double checking the model number you listed in your posting.  Are you sure your computer is a G540 and not a T540 laptop?  Thanks !
