    Has anyone encountered this before?
    It happened several times in the past, shutting down and restarting the laptop helped.
    Today, after five shut downs - The left side of screen is still dark
    Any ideas?

    Looks like the backlight is failing :slightly_sad:

    Possibly a loose connection or temperature related... try a fonzie whack or letting it cool down.

    I think your screen is broken, did you often close the lid right after heavy tasking or gaming? it's QHD right, if yes maybe it's due the heat from keyboard that made some screen components NG. Do you still under warranty? If I were you i would send it for repair. I had QHD+ Blade before owning the latest Blade 14 over 1 year and had no such issues but i almost bought Blade stealth which had similar problem with you.

    Yes, it's the QHD.. What you are saying sounds plausible but it's a gaming laptop... I mean, it should be able to deal with the heat.
    Really annoying. Spoke with Support and they told me to send the laptop to their repairing service (no warranty, got the laptop over a year ago). Just for the diagnosis, it will be over $100

    Not a happy customer.
