Hi Maiden, I'm sorry but I'm not tech savy at all so I don't think I can help you. The 'black screen' problem I had was on the E545 ThinkPad. It would start up but the monitor/screen remained black. I followed the solution posted by "Duck3" in 2009. I did each step in the order posted and although I'm not capable of understanding the 'why' of it, that did take care of the problem. My ThinkPad is working just fine now.

thank you for your reply. interesting that the only 1 time laptop booted up immediately after power on since this whole fiasco started was after it had drained of battery completely. although i tried that again and no luck.
I read the solution post you referenced and will try that - except this Y50-70 has built in battery so I can't take it out.
if you or anyone reading this has any thoughts on how to completely drain battery I am all ears

My laptop screen is black but the power button lights up telling me it has charge and it turns on. I have a Lenovo 80XR and I dont have a battery that can come out or a emergency little button I need help.
