OK, keep me posted if you find the repro steps.  Once I got a repro here, I'm sure we can get Intel working on a fix.

Re: X1 Yoga (20FR) display freezes/black screen with spinning dots with latest Intel HD Graphics Dri

For everyone else who has the problem that the screen turns black and brightness keys (F5/F6) don't work, the solution is to apply this patch:  http://pcsupport.lenovo.com/us/en/products/LAPTOPS-AND-NETBOOKS/THINKPAD-X-SERIES-LAPTOPS/THINKPAD-X1-CARBON-TYPE-20FB-20FC/downloads/DS118463

 

Pay special attention to the steps to apply it  (from the readme):

 11. Go to C:\DRIVERS\PANEL.
 12. Double-click/Double-tap the file X1CFxLCD.bat.
 13. Follow the instructions on the screen.
 14. Restart the computer after installation.

 

I'm marking this post as the solution to help people find this information easily.  I believe the problem that is solved by this patch is the issue that most people are experiencing (except for ChrisPerry)

0 person found this solution to be helpful.

This helped me too

This solution has been foolproof. I have not had the problem reappear.  However, I got a notification of a driver update in the Lenovo notification area.  I'm wondering whether I should go ahead and do this update, or will it backfire?

Re: X1 Yoga (20FR) display freezes/black screen with spinning dots with latest Intel HD Graphics Dri

Hey Guys,

 

Does anybody know if this solution also works for a other model ( Yoga 3 11 80J8).

i have the same issue described. There is a M5y71 APU in the Laptop and my screen goes black when i update my driver to the latest Intel updated version. With the OEM driver it works fine, but i want to update it!

 

Thanx in advance...

Does anyone know if applying this fix before the problem occurs will prevent it?

 

Thank you very much in advance!

If you're asking about the X1 Carbon / X1 Yoga problem, then yes.

The patch module was just updated this week for this exact reason.

http://pcsupport.lenovo.com/us/en/products/LAPTOPS-AND-NETBOOKS/THINKPAD-X-SERIES-LAPTOPS/THINKPAD-X1-CARBON-TYPE-20FB-20FC/downloads/DS118463

 

So apply that version of the patch and you should never have this issue now or in the future.

Another question:

 

Is it safe (or necessary) to install this patch on X1 Yoga systems with OLED displays?

 

Thank you!
