Hi. I have my Lenovo IdeaPad Z580 i5-3210M 1TB 8GB GT635M WIN8 for less than 24 hours. The problems with the black screen started right from the beginning. When I first opened the laptop, nothing happen but a black screen. Forced shutdown and it started on a second go. Registered on Microsoft blah-blah-blah. 8 hours later tried to use it. It started again but, it was not login in, only after 3 forced shutdowns. I used it for one hour and let it open for 15 min. When I came back, there was again the black screen and I couldn't get back to programs. I forced shutdown again. Now, I've tried to start the computer several times but the only thing I get is the black screen. Suggestions? Quite disappointed, and looking to the number of postings I think I've made a bad decision buying this computer. Now I'm typing from my old ACER

Maybe you have a faulty hdd, lenovo use seagate and they are not the best hdd, or try going into the bios Fn+F2 button and turning off eufi and secure boot if you have the option and then save the changes.
I only get the black screen occasionally when i have an external hdd attached to the usb port, i dont know if it`s the external hdd not being ready to on time.

So do you only get a balck screen now!, you cannot boot into windows?
If so remove the battery and hold the power button down for 30 seconds then put the battery back in and see if you can boot.

I recomend you get a replacment, you should not be having this problem as you have only had it 24 hours, it`s not worth messing about.

I have read on this forum of a few people getting black screens and not being able to get into the bios, have a browses though the thread of the last week.
