Yoga 500-14ISK Laptop Red Screen desktop

Whenever I turn on my Yoga 500 the Lenovo logo and the loading wheel both turn red, then the Windows logon screen, and the desktop are both tinted red. Then after a little while it all goes back to normal. This happens every time I turn it on, I have tried updating drivers and it hasnt changed anything. 


Someone please help, never seen anything like this. Logon 1.jpgRed Desktop.jpgDesktop.jpg

Hi there, Rhoob          –


Thank you for writing in to the Lenovo Forum - happy to have you here today.


What gpu so you have? Does it happen on external LCD? 

The reddish hue could suggests that the internal LCD backlight is about to fail. Red/pink hue on start-up is a dead giveaway for a failing backlight (CCFL). Nothing else gives out this symptom.


Try updating video drivers


Update us how it goes.
