Re:Legion 5P 15ARH05H micro stutters

2021-08-19, 6:57 AM
I have my legion 5 from september last year and only this year in march or april i started to have this issue. Reinstalling windows doesn't really help because windows is making updates by itself. Most probably it is an issue with a driver that maybe it is different on ideapad. This problem seems to be present only on the amd version.

Nonsense about connection timed out on Lenovo's equally useless forum. Time to retype message:

 

The evidence points to AMD drivers and given the experience I have had with hybrid mode I believe it is the iGPU. Even if folks have hybrid mode off, the iGPU is still enabled. The best option is to go to AMD's site and get the drivers there. It is likely that Windows is pushing funky iGPU drivers for AMD CPUs, otherwise this stuff wouldn't just happen out of the blue.

 

Get your drivers from AMD. Some have mentioned WiFi being an issue too, so just in case I would advise going to the Intel page and downloading the latest WiFi/Bluetooth chipset drivers there.

Hi there,

 

Thread starter @cccat posted a video about a month or so ago with pretty much the exact same fix, here. It didn't work for me then, but I had just reinstalled Windows again at the time, and I still have the same Windows drivers now.

 

Honestly, I wish it was that easy, but maybe others can check?

 

As for your choice of Laptop, that is ultimately your decision, but you are right to be VERY hesitant! Don't just look at this thread, go to the main board and look. I wish I had.

 

Personally, this has been one of, if not the worst, most frustrating, infuriating purchases I have ever made, and I wish I'd spent my money elsewhere! And there are other things I've not even mentioned. Don't think you are safe under warranty either.

 

I understand if you have your heart set on something, other options will not seem as appealing right now, but I would say take a step back and look elsewhere before spending what I assume will be a large amount of money.

 

Just ask yourself whether you want to risk this kind of bother in 1, 2... maybe 6 months down the line?

 

Best of luck whatever your choice.

 

AL

@Servin07 If your country has a right to return within 14 or 30 days and you really want one then sure give it a go. Just don't let it go over otherwise you're stuck at the mercy of their poor customer support as shown by the lack of acknowlegement by lenovo officials on this thread. The thread was started 6 months ago and the offical solution has been just to ignore the problem and hope it goes away.

 

My regret is I didn't make the return period and am now stuck with the horrendus support with the machine in it's 3rd repair.

I asked them to initiate a full refund to end the hassle it's causing both me and them but they won't budge. I've lost weeks of work because of the weekly returns and I've not been able to work for the month of August so far.

I can't comment on the Intel variants, I think everyone that has posted in this thread so far has mentioned they have AMD?

 

Also, what @brokenaimbot says is spot on, but be aware that a lot of people had issues after the refund period. Myself and @Challenger00102 had issues start within less than a week of any possible refund, now I can't even send it for a repair because they will not provide a correct address label. I have honestly never dealt with this level of incompetence from such a large, well-known company. It really is beyond shocking.

 

If I'd known about this sooner I would have bitten their hand off for a refund!

 

As such, I would never recommend Lenovo to anyone!

If you are planing to use the laptop with linux you can buy it, there is no issue on linux. On windows I am quite sure it is a problem with amd drivers. On my legion 5 the problem started a few months ago and I have the laptop since last year.

Strange… how could it not possible to fix this… :o

This seems to be a problem with amd and ryzen and not lenovo ( poor support )

A user can isolate the driver which cause the problem ? With this, we can clearly identify the main.

 

The problem is a driver or a Windows update ? Or in the lenovo vantage ?

when I search in the net, other brands have the same issues, resolved by différents manipulations 

 

excuse me for all of those questions but I am so curious

If you've read all the pages most of us have exhaustively tried all the drivers, roll backs, power tweaks, fresh windows installations ddu clean installs etc with no success.

I didn't sign up to do full time comprehensive quality assurance testing for lenovo, amd, microsoft or any other tech involved when I bought this machine.
