Lenovo laptop screen goes black randomly: how to fix it

Are you experiencing the issue of your Lenovo laptop screen going black every few seconds before resuming after a mouse click or a key press? This article will show what causes the issue and how to fix it.

Why does a Lenovo screen turn black?

There are several reasons that can cause your Lenovo screen turns black:

  • Hardware error: if some of your hardware is damaged or old, it can cause the black screen of your Lenovo computer.
  • Display issue: If the display is faulty, it can stop showing the picture.
  • Battery issue: If your Lenovo battery is old or damaged, or simply low, it can also create problems with the display.
  • Software problems: Windows OS or other software and apps can affect your screen display.

What to do if your Lenovo's screen goes black?

  • First of all, restart your computer without any peripherals connected to it. If, after the restart, the issue is fixed, the problem might be caused by peripherals.
  • Reset the Display Mode by pressing Windows + Ctrl + Shift + B keys. This might help to refresh your display connection and fix the issue.
  • Update your graphics drivers. If they are damaged or out of date, they could cause the display problems.
  • Update Windows to the latest version to make sure it's not related to an outdated Windows version.
