Dark screen

I have a 2015 Lenovo Z50-70 laptop Model 20354 with Windows 8. When I turn it on, I get a dark illuminated screen. The only thing I can see on the screen is the cursor. The control for screen brightness is at a maximum. Can someone please advise me how to proceed?

I would try a Windows repair. You should be able to access options from boot

Run at boot

You can run the restore wizard at boot, before logging into Windows 8 using your account:

  1. Restart your computer
  2. Press the F11 key to open System Recovery
  3. When the Advanced Options screen appears, select System Restore
  4. Choose an administrator account to continue
  5. Enter the password for the selected account
  6. Click Next
  7. Make sure “Choose a different restore point” option is selected and then click Next
  8. Select a restore point from the available list
  9. Click Next
  10. Click Next, at the Confirm your restore point screen
  11. Click Yes at the warning message
  12. Wait for the restore software to continue. Your computer will restart
  13. Once you log back in, go to your Desktop and see if the confirmation message appears: System Restore completed successfully.
