    No Display When Resuming from Sleep - Intel HD 5300




      Answers (N/A if not applicable)


      Provide a detailed description of the issue

      Graphics work upon starting the computer from an off state. After allowing the laptop to sleep. Attempting to resume from sleep shows the lenovo status LED lit (as if the computer has fully resumed) and even sounds to happen. However, the screen will remain black. I have also experienced problems using external output, which also sometimes (less reliably) causes the graphics to stop working without sleeping. By stop working I mean that the display is black and unrecoverable. The only solution I have found is to hard reset the laptop. The two drivers listed below exhibit this behavior. However, the much older provided by lenovo has no problems. Microsoft update has now force installed the latest drivers and I can no longer install the working ones.

      Does it fail every single time, or only sometimes?

      AC or Battery (tested mostly on Battery though)

      How to repro

      Please provide steps to replicate the issue.  These steps are very crucial to finding the root cause and fix.
      A screenshot to illustrate the issue is a huge plus. A video of the failure is even better! Attach to the post or provide the YouTube link.

      1. Computer powered up and working. Can be doing anything.
      2. Allow computer to sleep by waiting long enough or by closing the lid and letting it sleep
      3. Attempt to resume from sleep by tapping the keyboard or pressing the power button
      4. Occasionally ctl+alt+del will make the display come back in very low resolution.
      5. If Step 4 does not work, then nothing can make it come back.


      I am highly motivated to get this fixed as I am a student and this is making my laptop unusable on a day to day basis. A thread about this issue, that I am not a participant of is here:
