Screen brightness and volume indicator sometimes get stuck after waking from sleep/hibernate

2014-01-05, 10:24 AM

Hello,

I've got problem, that screen brightness and volume indicator sometimes got stuck (it looks like they stucked during dissapearing - it looks like 80% transparent, but it is still there and don't working) after waking from sleep/hibernate.

 

Problem can be fixed when TPONSCR.exe is killed and re-runned, but it is annoying..

 

I've done everything from this knowledge base post: http://forums.lenovo.com/t5/T400-T500-and-newer-T-series/On-Screen-Display-not-working-after-resuming-from-sleep-mode/ta-p/517219 but no diffrence.

 

It does happen randomly, when waking up computer.

 

I've got T510, clean install Win7 PRO 64bit, Microsoft Security Essentials

 

Any suggestions?

I found an easy solution to the Brightness bar getting stuck on the screen. Tap F5 a few times, which is the "Reduce Brightness" key. Then leave the computer alone. The bar will disappear.

 

**bleep** annoying having that bar come up EVER, unasked. Lenovo needs to fix that!

Thanks for the post - had the same problem, and tried the solutions posted earlier (2010) but they didn't work. Agree that Lenovo should fix the "beeping" problem, since it appears to be happening across multiple models over a now 7 year period...
