I know back in 2013 Lenovo's had an issue with screens going black, some say it was the computer going into sleep mode unable to come out. Other reports were the screen needed to be replaced. While working on a Yoga the screen went black, can see it until after logging on, then all black.

Anyone seen this lately and know of a resolution.

    in most cases, you need to update the video driver - or roll it back to a previous version

    To resolve the issue, boot into Safe Mode to uninstall and delete the AMD display adapter driver from Device Manager.  Then, reboot into Windows and run Windows Update to automatically install the proper AMD display adapter driver.
