ThinkPad X1 Carbon 2nd generation, 2 short beeps when turned on and faint display.

I have a ThinkPad X1 Carbon 2nd generation, there were 2 short beeps when I turned it on and I could faintly see the the words thinkpad on the screen but nothing else. The keyboard back lights came on but my function bar didn't appear! Any ideas??

Hi Polski,

 

Welcome to the community forums. 

 

Looks like there's a hardware issue. Based on this article: https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/solutions/ht035729?CID=ww:lenovosocial:20x9m6 2 short beeps with a black screen could be a bad system board and DIMM. We suggest contacting our local support here: https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/us/en/SupportPhoneList?CID=ww:lenovosocial:20x9m6 for repair options. 

 

Thanks!
