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

2019-01-31, 0:42 AM

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??



Mod's Edit: Additional information added to Subject line for clarity of issue and moved post to the Thinkpad forum.

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.
