Re:Legion T5 tower 28IMB05 freezing

@JohnnyMBG Exactly! But @Karel1337 is using old GPU drivers too, so regardless of them buying the sound card or not that would not have done anything. Karel, I suggest you try using the newer GPU drivers from Nvidia to see if it does anything, but as you said in a earlier post you didn't want to test things out so that's fine. You buying the sound card basically doesn't do anything in this situation.

 

Also @JohnnyMBG how can you "confirm" it's the workaround? How long have you been using this workaround?

@jatgm  

For about 6 weeks now

Been running the gpu driver marked as

- Released 27 May 2021 (Lenovo support site)

 

The issue I experience if I try to update nvidia drivers is as follows:

-The realtek audio device disappears

- Audio is only available via monitor(s)

bsod crashes will hit regularly at least once a day.

 

I primarily  play flight simulator 2020 and its unplayable with later gpu drivers. 

 

I then went after lenovo support hard, got a supervisor, wanted to go higher but no can do.

Lenovo is washing their hands of this.

 

So these, imo, are lemons, until nvidia fixes the drivers or lenovo opts for a recall.

Neither option is looking good at this point.

I say this because this issue surfaced almost 6 months ago... and nothing yet.

 

This is gonna make new AMD fans from a lot of people crossing over.

I see. Thankfully, for me my games still don't need the newer GPU driver but that might not be forever. I'm wondering if upgrading the GPU entirely will negate the issue? Or is it as simple as just changing the soundcard? We would need Karel to test that first. 

 

Lenovo needs to do something about this!

Good news! I just talked to Lenovo support. They say they do have people working on it, and that NVIDIA know of this issue, and are working on it. They say that when the issue is fixed the driver update will be released on Lenovo Vantage, and also on the official website.

 

As with the warranty situation, if our warranties expire before the issue is fixed we might be able to get it extended if we reach out to support and say that it is a reoccurring problem. For now, we can just use the older driver, but it's good and reassuring that they are actually working on it.

 

As for whether or not the sound card is the issue, the technician I asked didn't know. 

 

Also, on Lenovo Vantage if you go to System Update and click "CHECK FOR UPDATES", there should be "Components for Vantage gaming features - 10/11 [64] - 1.0.0.38". The person I talked to said that you should update this.

Yes, but if Realtek audio and NVIDIA audio are trying to operate simultaneously, we will have old school IRQ conflicts.  It may be a good idea to check the BIOS, turn off the audio on the GPU or the motherboard (take your pick), and see what happens from there. 

 

Realistically, NVIDIA should have written in an override to disable any existing soundcard drivers, but they didn't, and that's their fault!  Maybe the old drivers have it and the ones past June don't?

 

I'm not sure.  I'm far too busy of late to keep screwing with this **bleep** PC.  Lenovo does owe us some money back for all the trouble we've been through!

I hope what they said is true and they are actually working on a fix

A few months ago, Lenovo apparently already knew of the issue, and they wanted to make and updated BIOS, and were, in fact, working on one, but NVIDIA could break that BIOS update with each driver. Here's the essential difference between NVIDIA and AMD I've learned over 26 years: NVIDIA is great at cranking out top-notch hardware, but it's not tested well and it's not well-supported, once released. AMD may drag behind, but there technology is usually more well-supported and stable, overall. Look at the games now. Which is usually preferred? FreeSync or G-Sync? DLSS or FidelityFX? There's a few answers right there.

I think, they really should make something immediately. BSOD is not just a little bug!

Such PC is useless! Thank you.
