T500 screen shuts down randomly

2018-09-15, 15:22 PM

Hello,

 

since one week my screen shuts down; goes black.  After turning off it blinks with white light from bottom of screen, for ~10s, but the light is not bright, you can barley see it with lights on. It usually happens after several hours running, but today it happend after 1h.

Monitor connected via VGA also has no connection.

After turning laptop off by pressing I/O button and then turning on the screen works just fine...

 

When the screen is not working I have an acces to computer via remote desktop, so everythink works.

 

Notebook is 5 years old. I don't use it with battery for a long time. First battery was discharging quickly, next one got a bump and a crack on it.

Everythink was fine till now.

 

Where the problem, softwere or hardwere?

 

regards

Marcin
