I'm the owner of a Legion Y530-15ICH with i5-8300H and GTX 1050 4GB which has been running just fine.
I wanted to know how it would fare when overclocked, so I first tried going to the Bios for the auto-overclock like I did the last and first time I tried overclocking a computer. I didn't see any such options so I'm guessing my processor is locked. So I went on to trying to overclock with ThrottleStop(TS) for CPU and MSI Afterburner(AB) for GPU.
When I launch AB, I see it picks up values on my GPU but right after, all drops to 0 and I just read "Connection to GPU1 lost". Going back and forth from my Intel GPU does the same thing, AB picks up values for a second then loses connection. Anyone knows what's the cause of this and/or how to get around that?
( Also, if you have any advice on overclocking either CPU or GPU, I'll gladly take some since this is the first time I'm trying it with programs )
Solved! Go to Solution.

Thanks for reaching out. Have you tried doing a clean install of the graphics card driver? This is a very nice place to start to make sure that the problem is not driver related. You can use third-party programs like Display Driver Uninstaller (DDU) to make sure that all drivers are 100% uninstalled or you can go the more traditional route of going for the device manager
After performing these steps try downloading the most updated driver for the card through the support website here:
As for overclocking guide, check this thread (the guide is for a Y720 but same aspects applies):
Let us know if this helps you out. Thanks.
