Re: Thinkpad X1 Yoga Display Problem - blank screen

Rolling back to MS basic driver and then "updating" to the 2015 driver worked. Your final step just took me back to square one. Installing the actual current driver update just took me back to a blank screen again.

Also, updating the driver gives me the blank screen again. Is this supposed to be a temporary fix or a permanent fix? I can't be not letting my display driver update itself, am I?

Hi Rajat88,

I tried this one, recommended by ChrisPerry on a different thread on the same issue.  It worked for me (at least so far) with my X1 Yoga FQ.  I think Lenovo needs to get staff on this pronto.  I called tech support in Atlanta and they seemed unaware of it.  They wanted to turn back time or do factory condition, which is unacceptable when it's not an isolated issue. 

 

Here is a link to what worked for me: http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/downloads/ds118463

Mine failed again after about 8 hours.  I manually chose the 4474 driver.  Let's hope this sticks.

Hi,

 

The black screen is gone, but the touch function is gone.

It's like a regular X1 Carbon without the Yoga.

Any ideas?

 

Kenneth

Hmmm...mine never lost touch screen function when I went to an older driver. Clicked the solved button above on the thread amd see if it takes you to a different thread. I will see if I can copy and paste the solution I used from a different thread on display problems. So far, I've been back to normal for 5 days.

Here is the link to the thread that solved my issue. The key seems to be something about getting this specific patch (not others) and installing precisely as described.

That said, Lenovo updates screwed things up again today. I now have that off, and plan to keep it off until the updates don't reintroduce the problem.

I have created a Powerpoint Document explaining how to fix this.

I don't work for Lenovo. I'm a crazy volunteer!
