T 470S- Sudden black screen

2017-09-25, 8:02 AM

Hi, I have a 20 days old T470S (20HF004VMD).    Every 1-2 hour the screen goes black. The music etc. stills works. Pressing the power  / closing the lid some times works. Other times I need to power cycle the laptop.  

When the computer comes back on, there is a line in the bottom of the screen. 

 

The laptops is as from factory, except for the office 365 / Box / dropbox.  The drivers are up to date.

 

Any ideas will be appreciated.

Hello,

 

I also have T470s with the same problem. Did you manage to repair it?

Related issues, maybe even the same:

My T480 still suffers from occasionally black screens (the last link) even after all the suggested "fixes".

I have a Thinkpad 580.   I fought with this problem for weeks, then stopped using the AVG web browser a month ago.  Went back to REAL Chrome, and all was well.  

 

Tried AVG once more a week later, and got the black screen crash the same day.  (Screen is black, power light is blinking. Requires a hard power off by holding the button for 5 seconds, then restart.)

 

TODAY, my wife's Thinkpad did the same thing, so I have also advised her to stop using the AVG browser.  

 

Hope this helps. 

 

Jack
