T450 screen unplugging?

2018-04-16, 4:52 AM

When I close the lid of my computer, it makes the alert noise as if you unplugged a device. When I open the lid, it makes the alert noise as if you plugged in a new device. The screen takes a few seconds to turn on, and all of my windows which were open will be resized, and all of my desktop icons are rearranged.

Happens every time I open or close the lid, and it's been about a week now.

About two months ago, I actually sent this in to Lenovo for some repair from a drop, and they replaced just some plastic parts of the shell and the keyboard. It worked fine when I got it back, and once the screen is on, it continues to work fine. I'm mentioning this because I don't think the screen is becoming physically unplugged, it looks like it is in top shape after the repairs.

 

Any thoughts?

I downloaded a program called EventGhost to try to dig a little more (Lenovo tech support didn't try to dig in to the issue at all).

Here's my log when I close, then open the lid.

Does this behavior make sense to anyone?

 

22:42:15 System.DeviceRemoved [u'\\\\?\\DISPLAY#LEN40A3#4&2ba606e7&0&UID265988#{e6f07b5f-ee97-4a90-b076-33f57bf4eaa7}']

Lenovo forum post with same issue

The scaling change did not fix it for me, but the last suggestion, to uninstall the Intel Graphics Display Adapter worked.

0 person found this solution to be helpful.

This helped me too

I also ran a utility called EventGhost that logs all of the events. It allowed me to see what exactly was happening with the connection noises. 

My built in screen was disconnecting then it thoughtt some other screen was being connected on close. Then the reserve on open. 

It didn't help me fix it, but maybe it'll help you .
