Screen wouldn't turn on stayed black?

2011-07-02, 16:21 PM

I usually just leave my laptop on overnight, and it just goes to sleep/hibernation mode then. But when i went to go turn on my laptop, you can see the lights on my laptop turn on but the screen stayed black.

 

What could have possibly happened?/what can i do to fix it

Solved! See the solution

If you have not already:

Hold power button down to turn laptop off.
Unplug, and remove battery.
Hold down power button for ~ 30 seconds.
Re-plug, without battery and see if you can boot
to bios setup. (F1 or F2 key at lenovo screen)
If so, shut down again, and replace battery.
Boot and see what windows does.

And post the details of your laptop, model,
and OS. (operating system)

I have the same problem.

You should hold down the power button for 30 seconds when the laptop is off, without battery and unplugged? Or do I get it wrong.

Also what do you mean the last step with replace battery, getting a new battery?

(It happened to me after hibernating, I usually was never using battery but just plugged in, it's a new lenovo with windows 7)

I have tried many (crazy) things. NO solution.

I suspect replacing/reprogramming the BIOS chip on the motherboard is only solution possible.
