Does your Lenovo IdeaPad U530 Touch laptop get stuck on a black screen before reaching the desktop? Lenovo IdeaPad U530 Touch laptop computers are susceptible to a range of problems that could cause them to get stuck on a black screen. Check the following possible causes to identify and solve the problem.
Cause 1: Broken Graphics Card Driver
If your Lenovo IdeaPad U530 Touch laptop is stuck on a black screen during startup, there may be a problem with the graphics card driver or another internal part of the computer. Before taking apart the computer, there are some other methods to try.
Press and hold the laptop’s power button until the computer turns off. Hold the ‘Shift’ and ‘F8’ keys and press the power button again, and continue holding the ‘Shift’ and ‘F8’ keys until the screen displays “Please Wait.” Then, a recovery screen should appear. If you see a black screen again, retry the previous steps.
From the recovery screen, select ‘See Advanced Repair Options’ —> ‘Troubleshoot’ —> ‘Startup Settings’ —> ‘Restart.’ Your computer should reboot to the Startup Settings screen. Select ‘Enable Safe Mode.’ The laptop should reboot and allow you to log in using Safe Mode.
Once logged in, open the start menu and search for ‘Device Manager.’ Expand the ‘Display Adapters’ tab and right-click on your graphics card. Select ‘Uninstall’ and follow the prompts to complete the uninstall. Then, restart your computer and try to log in normally.
Cause 2: Faulty Hard Drive
If your machine continues to display a black screen upon startup, the laptop’s hard drive might need to be replaced.
To replace the computer’s hard drive, follow the Lenovo IdeaPad U530 Touch Motherboard Replacement guide up until Step 7, where the user is instructed to remove all the connections to the motherboard. The hard drive is attached directly to the disk controller of the computer’s motherboard.
