Y560 - Problems when running games

Hi everyone,

 

I bought the Y560 about a year and a half ago and I've been a happy owner ever since.

 

A few days ago I formated the drives and reinstalled Windows and ever since I'm having problems when running Battlefield 3.

 

The problem is the following: After a few minutes in game the screen freezes and I can only hear a 'grrrrrrrrrrr' sound through the speakers. I can not issue any keyboard command and can only force-shut down the laptop.

 

I had no problems running the game prior to reinstalling Windows so I assume that the issue lies in a driver conflict, but how can I know which drivers are causing this?

Does anyone have any ideas on how to resolve this issue?

 

Many thanks,

Viksa

Re: Y560 - Problems when running games

Install all possible drivers for your laptop from official lenovo support site, direct x9.0 and all updates including optional (excluding languages) for Windows. It solves 90% of problems :smileyhappy:

If your game played well out of the box, why not try doing a one key recovery to get your system back to the day you took it out of the box.

I tried reinstalling all drivers and that didnt help.

And unfortunately, I bought the laptop with no OS and somehow managed to make my recovery partition useless. Dont even have it anymore...

 

Is there any software that runs in the background and scans for driver conflicts?

 

EDIT: Last time the PC froze, I restarted the game right after I restarted the PC and this time the system froze much faster. The first time I could run it for about 10 minutes and the next time only 1 minute. Any ideas why this could be so?
