X250 Display Issue with Windows 10 1903

#1 Post by fastoy » Sun May 26, 2019 1:10 pm

I just upgraded my X250 to Windows 10 Pro 1903. The only problem I'm having is that sometimes when Windows turns off the display based on my setting in "Power & sleep settings" when I resume using the laptop by opening the lid and interacting with the keyboard/mouse, the display will not turn back on. Clearly the system is running but the display stays dark. I have the power button set to Hibernate so I just press the power button and it hibernates. Another press resumes from hibernate and all is well.

I'm running the Intel HD 5500 driver version 20.19.15.4531.

Wish to report that our X250 successfully upgraded to Win10, no issues.

For your X250 LCD screen still blank after resuming from sleep, Windows key + Ctrl + Shift + B.
This should restart the graphics driver and your screen should turn on from the Sleep mode.

What a neat trick! Thanks.

What I did is from a right click on the desktop, chose "Display settings". Then scrolled down to "Advanced display settings". Clicked and then scrolled down to "Display adapter properties for Display 1". Clicked and then chose "Monitor" and then "Properties" and then "Driver" and then "Update Driver." It updated and I ended up with a new Lenovo driver dated 04/18/2019 version 6.3.1.0.

Solid so far.

Who knew?
