Lenovo y410 - Black screen @ boot

2009-02-09, 2:55 AM


and thank you for your help...

I am student and buy the lenovo y410

i Had 2 issues the past couple days and one really big one today:


1. The fan is shutting down the computer every hours or so
2. the screen turns purple sometimes depending on how you turn it

3. and the BIGGEST one is now it does not go further than the microsoft boot screen. Here how it is running:

 - i press the power button
 - lenovo bios "page"
 - then the ms menu to boot the system in "safe mode"
 - and whatever one you pick it turns black after... i can only see the "arrow for the mouse" and move it ...

    Def not why i buy this computer :)


Any help will be MORE THAN apreciate

Thank you

I thing is your OS facing problem, not the system, if the system able to boot, means generally system is ok... may u try format and install  a fresh OS (WINDOWS XP/VISTA)

I have a Y410 and I've also encountered number three. What I know is that it's suppose to happen when one of the software involved with Vista or its drivers are not installed or configured correctly. Recently I tried updating my Vista and it went wrong like that, good thing I was able to create a restore point before updating. 


if you want, you can try visiting this particular page:



that repairs corrupt components. I ended up seeing one corrupt file after performing that and it was repaired. :D


Hope this helps. :D
