  1. Frozen screen, can’t do anything about it


    Hello, my lenovo laptop screen is black and i can only move around the white arrow but other than that i cant even click on anything, press any key, it just wont respond. I even googled some solutions and looked at other responses. I have tried key+P and selected pc only, no response. I tried pressing Shift 5+ to use sticky keys clicked yes, no response. I should mention before the black screen, the screen read something like “your laptop doesnt have enough resources” not too sure but something along those lines, then it went to the black screen. I literally cant click on anything it just will not respond, even tried the old trick of pressing the power button to shut down and restart, it wont even do that. Ahh im so confused, would appreciate some help. Thanks.

    :)

  3. frozen screen

    Hi Philip,

    Thank you for your interest in Windows 10!

    I understand your surface screen is frozen. In this case, I would suggest you to hard restart the tablet by pressing and holding the power button and restart the tablet. Check if the issue persists.

    If the issue still exists, I would suggest you to try the following methods and check if the issue persists.

    Method 1:

    Try to run a System File Checker (SFC) scan to check for any file corruption.
    SFC scan will scan for corrupt system files on the computer and repair them.

    • Press Windows key + X, click Command Prompt (Admin).
    • In the Command Prompt, type the following command, and then press ENTER:

      sfc /scannow

    If the issue still exists, try the next method.

    Method 2:

    You may check the same issue with the new user account.

    Try these steps to create a new user account and check if it fixes the issue. Refer to the steps below to create a new User Account:

    • Go to Settings.
    • Choose Accounts and then select Other User Accounts towards the left.
    • Select Add an Account.
    • Enter a user name and hit Next.
    • Click on Finish.
    • Sign out from the current Account and Log into the new account.
    • Check if issue persists.

    Hope this information is helpful. Do let us know if you need any further assistance, we'll be glad to assist you.
