What are the common screen issues in Lenovo ThinkPad W510 Notebook?
The ThinkPad W510 is a mobile workstation from Lenovo. It is equipped with the Intel Core i7 processors and NVIDIA Quadro FX graphics card.

The latest model also comes with an optional multi-touch screen. ThinkPad now comes with an even 15.6-inch screen and updated touchpad. Certain screen issues might popup while using your system. The Blue Screen Of Death (BSOD) is a common phenomenon. Occasionally your screen might also wash out completely rendering you unable to read anything. Changes in brightness, contrast and color settings might be the reason for this. Also there are cases where the screen becomes blank repeatedly. You might also encounter lines on your screen which thereby obstruct the images on your screen.
A few tips to resolve the screen issues in your Lenovo ThinkPad W510 are:
- Connection problem
- Pixel problem
- Inverter problem
A complete blank screen might be due to connection problems. Connection problem is very common when it comes to screen issues. A ribbon cable attaches the display screen of your laptop to its base. Any damage to this cable can alter the display on your screen. Thus, when faced by screen issues, you are required to ensure that your ribbon cable is securely connected.
Pixel problems are also commonly encountered with laptops. Pixels are used to display images on the screen. If a defect happens to any pixel on your screen, it can lead to issues with your display. Blurred display might lead to difficulty in reading from the screen. As pixel is a very important component of the screen, pixel damage might need you to replace the screen.
As an inverter is used to connect your system, a defective inverter could also lead to display disturbances. Flickering of your display screen indicates that your screen is not getting steady power supply from the inverter. A damaged inverter also fails to deliver power. Thus, you are required to ensure that your inverter is properly functional and all its cables are connected properly.
