That should be the serial key of that Windows sticker on the back of your laptop. I think they may have even changed the name of it from "serial key" to "recovery key".

Hi
It sounds as if the hard drive in your machine has lost the ability to boot the machine up. If you can boot from a bootable CD/DVD or bootable USB drive if these options are available from the boot menu, then this confirms the hard drive has problems. Try using the "Lenovo button" just to the right of the Power button to see if you can return the computer to previous settings the worked. Be wary though as choosing the "restore to factory settings" option will lose all the data on the hard drive, and should only be used if your data is backed up properly, or in utter desperation.

Were you able to fix it? I took out the fan and cleaned it with a toothbrush (didn't disassemble it). If it worked, can you provide some insight into what you did?

You will need the drivers and software from the card manufacturer before you can even think about using it. Normally it is used through USB.

Is it problem accours in another monitor that pluged to your notebook? If no, the possibility is inverter failure. Try to replace the inverter to your service centre

There should be a function key to adjust the brightness at the top of your keyboard my laptop is F2 or F3 so at the bottom of the keyboard is a key label FN The Function key looks like a sun with an arrow if you are lucky to have it labelled.
If this does not fix problem you may have a faulty laptop . There is a circuit called an inverter in your laptop that converts DC to a higher voltage AC to run the fluro backlight behind your laptop's LCD screen. If this inverter goes faulty you could experience the symptoms you are seeing. This would require a replacement of the inverter circuit board in your laptop by a repair service centre.
