Re: V510-15IKB Laptop Freeze

Could you please upload that BIOS somewhere so we can test it? Lenovo does not offer old version for download... :(

Thanks for the reply d4x.

I can only find the "ww" version of the 28 BIOS: https://download.lenovo.com/consumer/mobiles/2wcn28ww.exe

I'm guessing "ww" means worldwide, while "rs" is the Indian variant or something?

I managed to downgrade my bios and tested the following versions.

2WCN28WW

2WCN31WW

2WCN38WW

2WCN40WW

2WCN41WW

I confirm that the freezing problem was present in all of them. The freezing occured during normal operation (internet browsing). The problem continues to occur regardless of whether the laptop is connected to the charger or not.

According to the Warranty rules, if the problem cannot be solved, Lenovo will replace the problematic device with another device, with similar characteristics.

The freezing is also present with BIOS 2WCN25WW. It occurs more rare that in the other versions. I am now evaluating the 2WCN22WW.

I just can't beleive it. How long this issue takes? And still no valid response from Lenovo. I think the V310 and V510 models are the last Lenovo for many users.

Re: V510-15IKB Laptop Freeze

We've bought 7 of these laptops (Windows 10 Pro 1809), and all of them have random freeze problems.
I contacted Lenovo Support. They said there is no known problem with these laptops, so I pointed them to this forum topic.
Then they said download the new update software and update all firmware and if that didn't help set the computer back factory settings.
I've allready done that with one laptop, but that didn't help either.

 

It's so frustrating Lenovo is not taking any action to help us with this problem. I already regret buying these laptops.

Thnk you for the efforts.

 

Sincerely, I would understand if Lenovo said they don't know how to fix this but keeping this topic unanswered makes Lenovo the worst.

Because it is not a bios problem, it is somehow connected with gpu (intel), the more often u use programs using graphics (even Chrome), the most commonc is freezing

Also linux fix presented in this thread indicates it is connected with intel graphics, probably it is badly integrated with lenovo motherboards in our models, somebody designed bad motherboards and now we pay and Lenovo is silent to this problem which is disgusting.
