Y510, Computer turns on but blank screen.

2010-06-06, 17:24 PM

Hey guys I'm hoping for some help on this one, since i can't seem to figure out what exactly is wrong. I've had my Y510 for about 2 years or so and the only thing ever to go wrong was the right hinge. All of a sudden the other day, I would turn my computer on and only the media buttons/ processor lights would turn on. The screen was totally blank, not even backlit or anything. I tried connecting the compter to an external monitor but I still didn't get anything. Even pressing the NOVO recovery button didn't do anything. Any Ideas would greatly be appreciated.

 

UPDATE: I was reading an article/faq that showed very similar to my problem, however lenovo says I need to update my BIOS. But how would I even going about doing so when I can't even get the lcd to turn on?

same symptoms?

possible dead ram, if you have more than one ram stick, remove one of them, and try again.

also, have you checked your graphic adapter while using external monitor?

do you hear any sound?

I have been having a same problem. My screen is all time black, RAM are good , but i think thats a graphic card.  i put it to oven for 10 minutes / 200 Celzius and at first try screen had gone( none black screen but white screen with able to change a brightness of screen)  but on second try it didint ( because I  thought  that first try wasnt enough).

 

Only throw it away and buy a new one .

 

If you discover some ideas, please reply.
