Re: V510-15IKB Laptop Freeze

If you are forcing the laptop to change between integrated vga and radeon, the freezes will occur more often. This is according to my experience.

 

When i use more than 1 monitor, the freezes are like 15 times a day.

Re: V510-15IKB Laptop Freeze

for Linux, solving a hardware acceleration disable by 100% solves the problem?

Not 100% in my case. Freezes still occur but usually very rarely

Re: V510-15IKB Laptop Freeze

Hi! Does your laptop still not freeze after you changed settings of additional power settings?

Re: V510-15IKB Laptop Freeze

Linux users can use this patch to regain the RC6 disabling hack in kernels later than 4.15: https://github.com/eigenbrot/re-enable_rc6

Be careful about it's distro-specific (Arch) nature though.

Re: V510-15IKB Laptop Freeze

Bought 22 of these laptops, many of them freeze constantly. After sending them to local Lenovo service partner, they said

Lenovo service center recommended BIOS downgrade to version 2WCN28RS to mitigate this freezing problem.

Re: V510-15IKB Laptop Freeze

1. Where to obtain this BIOS version?

2. Have you tested it and does it solve the freezing?
3. I suppose they didn't mention anything about the security vulnerabilities associated with the older BIOS version...

EDIT: If you're also from Croatia, was it Zel-Cos that recommended this?

Re: V510-15IKB Laptop Freeze

1. I think Lenovo service partner can send it to you.
2. Currently testing, it looks good - 2 laptops work 48h constantly running Youtube, and did not freeze yet. No need for heavy duty testing (like 3d rendering) since freezing is not connected to overload.
3. No, they did not, but since laptops are mostly used behind guarded office network, the exposure is minimal.
4. Yes.

Re: V510-15IKB Laptop Freeze

I confirm that the new BIOS 2WCN41WW released on March 4, 2019 does not solve the freezing problem.

If Lenovo service knows that an older BIOS version solves the problem, why don't they make a proper BIOS update?

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... Smiley Sad
