Thinkpad Edge - black screen with power cable plugged in.

I have a Thinkpad Edge and when I plug the power adapter in the screen goes black and you have to remove and replace the battery to be able to turn it back on.  Also whilst this happens the fans kick in full speed.

 

In addition: I have just removed the battery and have the mains plugged in (obviously) and it works fine.

Hi

 

Welcome to the community.

 

As you are going through the issue of black screen while plugging-in the power cable. I would suggest you to please perform the following steps and check the issue.

 

1. Please remove the power cable as well as battery.

2. Press the power button for 20 seconds.

3. Please re-fix the battery.

 

After that please visit the mentioned below web link and update the graphics driver and Bios.

Re: Thinkpad Edge - black screen with power cable plugged in.

I had same problem & spent days trying dozens of things.  Windows obviously worked.  I could use Remote Desktop to access it.


SOLUTION:  If you have a second computer, use Remote Desktop by choosing 'Run', type 'mstsc', type the name of the computer with a black screen, and connect.  After logging in, open 'Control Panel', and choose 'Power Options'.  On the left panel choose 'Choose when to turn off the display'.  On the row labeled 'Adjust plan brightness', under the 'Plugged in' column, turn up the brightness slider.

While on AC power, Desktop>Right Click> Graphic Properties>Display>Refresh Rate. Here, set the Screen Refresh Rate to 50 Hertz. After applying these settings, the blinking problem gets fixed.
