Re: Lenovo Thinkpad W510 hangs at Windows 7 boot screen

I know you're trying to make a joke, but maybe save it for people who haven't been waiting for a fix to an issue with 30+ laptops in an enterprise for weeks.  Thanks.

Re: Lenovo Thinkpad W510 hangs at Windows 7 boot screen

LOL XP on my T510 and it ran slow.  I read somwhere else that there were problems with running anything over 720P over display port, I really hope that this isn't the case.

There is no solution yet -- you need to call Lenovo support and explain the issue to them and how frustrating it is, and that as a customer you hope they are working on a fix.

Re: Lenovo Thinkpad W510 hangs at Windows 7 boot screen

I jsut had a similiar problem.  My system crashed (blue screen of death) for the first time and reccomended that I restart first. 

 

It hung there for about 10 minutes, but I was patient.  It is now working fine but I am worried, I will keep you updated if it becomes an issue.  I do not have new BIOS BTW.

I have also submitted my ticket to CDW, who we bought the laptops through and they are going to try to use their power to get someone at lenovo to address it.  I have 35 of these now and every single one of them has the issue when connected to a dock with a monitor attached, even at bios 1.17, BIOS 1.19 is out now but does not contain any listed fixes relating to anything like this.  I think it is the video card driver myself at this point.

I can confirm for sure that the 1.19 BIOS doesn't address this.

My W510 is suffering exactely the same problem when running it with the Mini-Dock and an external Monitor. BIOS upgrade didn't help. However, did anyone of you ever try to reinstall the complete system?
