Lenovo Thinkpad X1 7th gen - Black screen at start up

2020-03-06, 17:21 PM

Hi guys,

I have a problem with a Lenovo Thinkpad X1 (7th gen).

When powered on, it just shows the Lenovo logo and then just a black screen.


I have tried running the diagnostics (all test passed), re-installed Windows 10, ran startup repair.. Nothing has worked so far.
Has anyone else seen this? 
Any idea how to solve it?


Thank you.

I come up with the same problem an hour ago just with a little bit differently.


This is the first time that I using Windows 10 facing with a full black screen which showing to me.


When i start the X1 Gen 7 laptop an hour ago.


It got a full black screen with just a cursor moving around for me to see.


Except the white cursor, there is nothing to see on the screen. The screen is fully black.


When i press the Ctrl+Alt+Del, there are no response.


When press Windows+Shift+Alt+Ctrl+B  the screen just lights up and shows me for a second.


Then I have an idea. Just type the log in password to log in as usual.


Then I log in successfully and I can see anything that I prefer to see.


And then i disable the windows spotlight. I think this may be one of the reasons that causing this problem.


I guess this is because I am using windows spotlight as lock screen background 


under the environment that has no Internet network provided.
