    My laptop was plugged into my tv via HDMI. I ran a virus scan, then restarted. During the restart, I unplugged it from the tv. When the laptop booted back up, it displayed the lenovo logo, then the screen went dark. I waited a while, then tried plugging the HDMI cable back in... and windows (10) appeared as normal on the TV, but still not on the laptop screen. I am able to turn the dark screen contrast up and down with F keys, so it's not completely black.

    Basically, I can use my laptop when plugged into the tv, but the laptop screen itself is black. How can I get the screen working again?

    Try pressing the F10 key, you should see more settings on the TV screen where can select which display is used.
    If that doesn't work press and hold down the Fn (Function) key before pressing F10.
