Legion Y530 freezing? Help ASAP needed!

2020-04-08, 18:51 PM

Hello,

 

I recently began experiencing issues with my laptop - a Lenovo Legion Y530, 15.6’’, with SSD, intel core i7, 8GB RAM. I bought it brand new in August 2019, began using it in September. 

I have been using Maya for a few months now, with the occasional glitches and bugs, acting a bit slowly, but nothing too bothering. About a week or so ago, my laptop began freezing after 15-20 minutes of working with Maya - a complete freeze, no courser movement, no Esc, I could only fix it by forcing a restart with the button. I've switched my 3D settings to use the dedicated card, instead of the onboard one and also adjusted the NVIDIA card settings, to 'ease it up' a little bit. Doesn't help. I was advised to check performance in the Task Manager, in case that is the issue, but it appears to be fine? 

I've read on another thread on this forum that, quote ''The exact CPU load is unknown as Task Manager in the latest Windows 10 revision has apparently a bug where it displays CPU load percentage wrong. But it was above 60%.'', so I can't determine whether that is the source of the problem.

 

Any advice on how should I proceed and what to do? 

Any help is appreciated, since I am running late on assignment work!

 

Thanks in advance!

What's Maya? You should try updating your graphics drivers. It sounds like either incompatible drivers or corrupt files. So the worst case is that you'll need to reset Windows. Back up your files to be safe. Let me know what happens.
