When I start-up the indicator lights go on, the fan comes on and the optical drive makes it's usual noise, then everything stops except the "sound is muted" indicator stays lit. I don't get the Lenovo screen at all.
I tried the unplug, remove battery and hold down power button for 30 seconds to reset bios and it did not help.
I also tried removing the optical drive, harddrive, wireless card, and made sure the memory wasn't loose. Same results as above when I start-up.
Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

Hi bcubed ,
Welcome to the Community Forums.
To verify if the machine is still posting ( power on self test) , would the caps and numlock led still go on /off when button is pressed? How was it when you connect to an external monitor.
With the ac adapter connected , will the battery LED shows that it is still charging?
If you can try to check these things , we wouldbe able to isolate whether the graphic chip is the one affected.
If you place a pen light onscreen , would there be any faint image ?
Update us how it goes.

I am having the same issue: Black screen on start up with sound muted indicator light on. The only difference is I am using Windows 10.
Did you ever find a solution?
