Re:DPC_Watchdog Violation error on Legion T5-28IMB05 Desktop (Lenovo) - Type 90NC

2021-10-21, 10:46 AM

Been two weeks since my last post, still no BSOD so it seems to he working well. 

 

If I can be bothered, I might try and install the latest nvidia drivers without the optional audio drivers and see how that does (only if I can be bothered tho, finally got this thing working so I'm reluctant to try and break it again).

Not sure it's a scam pc build itself.

I want to choose my words carefully here.

Yes, nvidia appears to be the culprit BUT that lenovo is hanging us out to dry, is imo not ethical.

I'm looking at other pc builders like nzxt and listen to youtubers like jayz2cents.

They would gladly do what it takes to build you a system that had the peripherals to fix this issue.

Most of us are still under warranty and support gives us no options.

I simply don't want this system anymore.

I have another month left on warranty and lenovo won't take it back, or exchange it.

Thats what I think is a scam! A warranty that means nothing to customers who have a lemon for a PC.

So yes, I've also posted what the workaround is on these threads, but the workaround sucks.

We are not able to run our systems optimally since we can no longer update drivers.

So I will no longer buy laptops or desktops from lenovo. Thats all I can say after this experience. 

It's not about who's fault it is, its how you deal with support issues after you have our money.

Yes, and what happens when you will need a newer driver to run the latest game and you can't run that driver because your more or less brand new PC only accept the 2020 Nvidia driver.

 

I have never seen a bug like this, usually when there is a problem with your PC you should check that your driver's are up to date... In every case but this.

I can confirm that downloading the older version driver for Nvidia from the Lenovo driver website to have it be set back to 462.31 version has stopped the BSOD and watchdog violation crashes. I also disabled auto driver updates for now. I'm enjoying being able to use my PC without it constantly crashing - a real novelty after the last 4 months since Windows auto updated to the latest Nvidia driver and the nightmare began.

 

I only got this desktop 11 months ago - what a waste of cash. My first and last Lenovo machine - I will never buy Lenovo again. This issue has turned me off completely.  Shame on you Lenovo for not sorting it out.

I can't confirm that crashes stop after back to the old drivers from Lenovo (GPU and Sound-Driver).

But in my case there are less crashes.  Yesterday I had a reset after 8-9 hours. Before several days no crash.

Ok, had mine working again on latest graphics drivers without BSOD for a while now.

 

Installed graphics drivers, BIOS and Storage Drivers from the Lenovo Site:

Graphics (if you're having this issue you prob have an Nvidia card so you want that driver):

https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/uk/en/products/desktops-and-all-in-ones/legion-series/legion-t5-28imb05/downloads/driver-list/component?name=Graphics%20Processing%20Units%20%28GPU%29%20and%20Server-AI%20Accelerators 

BIOS:

https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/uk/en/products/desktops-and-all-in-ones/legion-series/legion-t5-28imb05/downloads/driver-list/component?name=BIOS%2FUEFI 

Storage:

https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/uk/en/products/desktops-and-all-in-ones/legion-series/legion-t5-28imb05/downloads/driver-list/component?name=Storage 

 

 

A month ago I installed GeForce Game Ready Driver 496.49 (October 2021 Driver) with a custom install (only graphics driver and physx software, no audio or usb-c drivers).

*I can't remember if I did a clean install or just installed on top* - if you're still having BSODs at time of install, I recommend a clean install.

Worked fine till now. Updated to version 496.76 today, I don't expect any problems (I'll come back if I have any). Custom installed with only graphics drivers, did not choose to clean install this time.

 

With this, you won't be able to plug audio into your monitors or run your monitors from a usb-c port but I think for most people this isn't a problem

@HigherDimension  

 

Thanks for the update.

Can you confirm that you are still using onboard realtek for audio?

I ask this because a few people on this thread have suggested to:

  • disable the onboard audio in the BIOS
  • buy a sound card (usb or pcie)
  • then upgrade to the latest nvidia drivers
