Re: Windows 8.1 update - black screen with flickering cursor.

2013-10-31, 12:14 PM

What about Catalyst Control Center and Switchable graphics, it was not working on my pc.

But came with annoying messageboxes, so I uninstalled it and it didn't install. with the new driver.

This is still an open issue, AMD is investigating it currently.  I will post back here when I have some update to share.

Sorry guys, but I am a really very disappointed by Lenovo.

 

It is my first ultrabook from your company S440 and in our country quite expensive but your lack support of Windows 8.1 is unbeliveable.

 

I have 2 more ultrabooks in company Asus and Acer and each of them is working with W 8.1 like charm.

I have to say never more buy laptot from your company.

 

If your product can't work with OS update so why you don't warn customer of update to 8.1?

 

I have started by black screen and now after several driver updates I can't wake up my ultrabook after sleep and I cant turn off it. After turn off it is in some state with black screen but there is no turn off for ages. 

 

Im really angry customer.

I bought this ultrabook  for help in may work and now I spend several times more time to try solve problem with new ultrabook

Best regards

Martin

I agree with the above poster. It's becoming increasingly apparent that Lenovo, AMD and Intel between them can't actually solve this problem at all - that there is potentially no solution.

 

I realise Lenovo, amongst other companies, were thrown in the deep end a bit by Microsoft. But this issue should really have been anticipated.

 

It's my last Windows laptop in any case. I'll bite the bullet and go with Apple next time.

Hello someohterguy,

most of the issues has gone now, but there are still few left. 

Please have a look at the attached picture - the buttons should be FULL GRAY but there is some white X at the background.

Are you able to tell me what else am I missing after the Win 8.1 issues?

Edit:

This is just an example I can see that X on all buttons on different webpages :/

z4yd4,

 

I have no idea this issue.  Can you tell me how to reproduce it here?

What graphics driver versions are installed on your system and what website can show the issue?

I have checked it on different browsers, chrome works fine, it's just mozila having this issue - dunno why that hapenned after the Win 8.1 update :/

 

The other thing that keeps happening and is really annoying is that I'm disconnected from my wifi - it was happening also on Win 8 before the w8.1 installation.

The problem now is different than usually - usually It suddenly shows an exclamation mark on my "Wireless-N 7260" .. It disconnects me on different networks, home, work, ... 

The signal is OK I'm the nearest person to the router, there are two networks in the room, right now we have 2 HP's, 1 Dell, 2x Macbook Air - the 3rd one should be mine, but I CHOOSE LENOVO .

THE ONLY LAPTOP HAVING ISSUES HERE IS MY LENOVO :D 

 

If someone can have a look at it, you can use remote desktop if you have few minutes to check this issue, just let me know on my email, while this is really so annoying :D
