    windows 8.1

    Blank Screen


    My Laptop is Lenovo Y50.
    All of a sudden , on logging, the screen went blank with a mouse pointer & i couldnt enter password.
    No Control, alt, Del works...
    I didnt do any Windows 10 Update...
    Now the laptop is as good as dead.
    Guys please help...
    Only i have to reinstall the OS? There is no other option?

    Just a thought
    Where your pointer is press Enter then password then Enter again.
    Let us know if that worked I know it did for me once on 8.1

    win 10

    Assuming you can't see the pointer (not clear from your post) try the brightness 'down' button
    There is a known issue for a crop of Lenovos where the brightness keys get reversed (I kid you not)
    There is a fix (a quick search and you'll find it) but it does come back (YMMV)

    If you power up the laptop from being completly off and absolutely get nothing on the screen, try pressing the power button 2 or 3 times , dont press and hold, just press.. pause.. press
