Lenovo laptop black screen

I have a lenovo g585 laptop that runs windows 8.1 and it seems to have display issues. When I turn it off or restart it takes hours to start it back up. This time 2 days! The fan comes on, the power light and everything but the screen, just blank. I've tried the power drain and I've checked the ram stick but I have no way of knowing if that's the problem since there's only one stick and one slot. Can anyone help me?

    Also, Windows could be messed up Try restoring it to a time you know it worked.
    You may just need to reinstall Windows. Take the battery out and see if the problem goes away.
    Happy computing!

    It sounds like your graphics hardware died. If your laptop still has a warranty send it to Lenovo.
  6. Thank you. I finally got it back on but it's quite dim. I will be sending it in.
  7. Ok, I'm very surprised that it died. That is not normal for Lenovo laptops.
