T460s Lenovo turns on but has a black/blank screen

I have a 2 year old Lenovo T460s. Last night I let my computer go to screensaver and came back this morning and the computer power light was green and screen is black (but lit). I have tried restarting (Shift F8 Power button). I have tried pushed the rest pin hole and still no luck. I do not have an external battery either.


Any tips to help get my computer to work? I have reading the other forums, but the tip requrie me begin able to access my computer or the control panel.

Re: T460s Lenovo turns on but has a black/blank screen

I try things in the following order.


1  Press and hold the power button for 10 full seconds (complete shut off)


2 If that doesn't work, I try the reset hole.


3) If that doesn't work, I remove the battery, pull off the bottom cover.  Disconnect the internal battery and then disconnect the coin-cell (CMOS) battery.  press the power button 3 times, holding it for 5 seconds on the last push.  DON'T DISCONNECT THE CMOS BATTERY IF THERE IS A BIOS PASSWORD SET AND YOU DO NOT KNIW IT.
