    Hello,

    I did some searching around for this issue, and like you, I found no definite answer.

    The most likely cause of the issue from what I have read is a heat related issue. If you shut down the machine and remove power, then reconnect everything after awhile, does the same issue happen?

    You also might contact Lenovo to see if there is a "hot key" that force tiles the screen, but they don't have published anywhere.

    Sorry that I couldn't find a better answer for you, but hopefully one of these two ideas will help you resolve this issue.
