It seems like resetting the bios is a solution to this problem. It hasn't reoccurred for me for 4 days now!

Re:Laptop boots black screen when external screen is plugged in

Sadly this did not work for me.

Tried adding a boot delay in the BIOS. Tried changing the boot display and display priority.

Still have the same problem. The only time I can get one external display to work is to plug it directly into the HDMI port on the PC.  But as soon as I use a docking station and more than one screen, NONE of the displays work, not even the internal display on the laptop.

 

I honestly think it has something to do with the docking stations. I've tried multiple docking stations with the same problem. My colleagues with different Lenovos PCs have the same problem too.

 

The only way to get all screens working with the docking station is to undock the PC, cold-boot into Windows, then dock it.

 

This is SO FRUSTRATING.
