Screen Backlight works while booting but shuts in Windows 10 - ThinkPad t460

2017-08-20, 9:21 AM

Hi all!


I just bought a second-hand ThinkPad t460 (20FM) laptop which was working fine when I got it.


Because I just wanted to make sure I was all up to date and working I started a factory-restet (F11 -> erase all files etc.)

During this reinstall I was also asked if I should erase the TPM.  I did. 



When I boot my computer, I see the Lenovo logo and the screen is backlit until I get to the Windows 10 login.

Then the screen darkens and I need a flashlight to see anything on the screen. 


I have run the Lenovo companion and downloaded all the updates...


Does anyone have an idea!? I'm stuck.


Please help! Thanks!
