Lenovo p51s Display partially blank sleep mode

Hello,

 

I purchased a brand new ThinkPad p51s last week running Windows 7. I noticed that when the laptop was left idle the computer would enter a sleep mode where the screen would automatically dim and slthe display would become patially white. 

 

As you can see from the photo I uploaded , the PC would patch up in sleep mode with these white , blank blocks .These partial patches would disappear when I would move the curser but resume after computer was left idle. 

 

Is anyone familier or experiencing the same issue

New p51s .. with Windows 7 ?  I don't think so ! The installation must be non OEM as the p51s does not (and never did) come with Win 7 AFAIK.

Thanks for the reply. 

 

I purchased it online from a local store. The invoice and store indicate it  was new ... Perhaps they installed Windows 7 ...any idea why my display is malfunctioning ?

I don't have a fix for the OP's stated issue, but per the base spec, the P51s was offered with at Win 7 preload option.
