x250 display problem

2017-02-08, 9:47 AM

I've had a x250 for a year and recently has developed an issue where the screen will display black/purple/green blocks(Look at pictures for reference) and I'll be forced to force shutdown my laptop and power it up again to resolve the issue. Could someone please enlighten me on the cause!

Welcome to the forum!

 

 

Looks like a defective panel to me.  Was any driver update done lately? What happens if you press with your fingers on the borders of the display? (Try putting some pressure in different places).

I applied pressure around the outside of my panel and it did nothing.

 

My display driver version is 20.19.15.4531 and was updated on the 29/09/2016(Intel graphics 5500).

Do you have an external monitor that you can  attach to your X250 via VGA/DVI cable?

 

Alternatively, to rule out any driver problems, can you try to boot a Linux Distro (like Ubuntu) from an USB Drive? Just to see if you get the same garbled image.
