Out of interest, try disabling the touchpad.

I'm not familiar with installing from the cloud. Do you have a USB spare to create installation media? You need a blank USB at least 8gb and delete all partitions during install so you have one unallocated space for a fully clean install.

 

The Vantage bug still happens for me too, but the freezes are still staying away for now.

Re:Legion 5P 15ARH05H micro stutters

I've been following this thread and have the same issues with my legion 5 pro 5800h + 3070. I had sent my unit for repairs and upon it's return everything seemed fine at first no stuttering using the battery fn toggle lock method but the problem quickly returned when I plugged in my headphones. I was advised to update all drivers and software to the latest versions from the official support site which I did in the hopes it would fix the issue once and for all but that didn't happen.

 

The only update I put off was the bios because of bios updates bricking machines in their other laptop ranges. For some reason when they replaced the motherboard the bios version they left on there was GKCN19WW. I couldn't find any information about this bios version there's no mention of it on the web. I reluctantly flashed the latest bios GKCN36WW hoping somehow it would finally fix things but it brought back the full stuttering issues in its full glory through the speakers and headphones.

 

I have installed a fresh windows 10 on the 2nd ssd along with opensuse linux installing the bare minimum drivers for the fn key functionality and the energy management software but no vantage software. So far there have been brief crackling, popping in the audio and momentary stutter but nowhere as prominant as before. There have been no issues in linux so far in the limited use time but I'm not sure it counts as some things aren't fully functional anyway such as the 165hz refresh rate.

 

This has been a frustrating experience as I have wasted many hours trying to fix the machine rather than using it for the work because I can't trust it not to throw a stutter during audio / video production work.

 

edit: tested the vantage bug on my thinkpad x230 no problems https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rpdu7uSoa1I

Interesting,

 

My problems started after updating bios to GKCN36WW. Maybe that is the problem? Problem is that after both windows reinstall s the bios remains on this newer version

Afternoon,

 

If you are looking to revert your BIOS, you can use a similar method to this:

 

https://www.reddit.com/r/Lenovo/comments/kvbdeq/lenovo_legion_5_15arh05h_buggy_bios_update/

 

That method was the only way I was able to get a legitimate older version of my BIOS to test, but I was 100% sure it was correct.

 

I edited the link with your BIOS version in increments of 1, and the closest I managed to find is a GKCN34WW. GKCN19WW @brokenaimbot mentions is perhaps some out-of-the-factory version before any updates? I can't find anything about it either.

 

WARNING! I do not own the same model as you, so I have no idea which version was available before you updated to the current GKCN36WW you mention, but it is a valid way to get older versions not available now. Be very sure before you try!

P.S - Are you still noticing the same issues?

I've used the laptop for about 12 hours since the windows reinstall and no glitches so far. But I'm wary to report as positive result given the tendancy for these errors to re emerge, will keep updating this thread

Glad to hear it is going okay so far. 12hrs is a victory in itself at this point.
