Re: x201 random shutdown...

Add another X201 to the random shut down list.  This is very annoying, but I can't really be without my computer for several weeks if that's the only way to get it looked at.  VERY upset as this was, as you all know, quite a pricey computer.

Re: x201 random shutdown...

it seems that it is a common problem here. this is my second x201 and it still has the shutdown symptom, but a little less frequent. and the contrast thing happens when not connected to outlet.

Re: x201 random shutdown...

Add another one (with BSOD). Just re-started my computer... again....

 

It's starting to get annoying when you keep getting this random shut down, especially you expect you get a above average quality laptop when you pay so much extra in price!

 

Does anyone has a solution to why x201 model has this BSOD problem???????? Is there something in the production procedure that Lenovo has kept secret from consumers?????
