Flex 2-15D Freezes every 3 seconds or so

2020-04-14, 14:22 PM

Hello! I was given a Flex 2-15D by my grandma who said it didn't work and i could have it if i could fix it, which i figured would be a simple process, however this has been one of the most confusing repairs I've ever done.

 

I've tried rolling back the Video drivers and it did nothing, I've tried everything to fix it, I've read every person's post having similar issues and none of their solutions have worked for me.


Its definitely not a hardware issue because booting Windows in safe-mode fixes the freezing/stuttering.

 

Anyone have any idea what might be causing it?

 

Specs are factory, on Windows 10, dont have anything installed that taxes the system heavily (No games or background programs that should be causing this)

 

Any suggestions are appreciated!!!

SOLVED!!!  After two weeks of trial and error I found the fix!!  I was ready to throw away my laptop, already purchased a new (other brand) one.  I used the AMD Cleanup Utility  to remove all prior graphic drivers.  Then I went to the Lenovo website and reloaded the original driver (dated 2015).  Problem solved!  I think it has to do with some of the driver updates that do not work with the Flex 2-15D.  All that matters now is that there are no more choppy videos!!

I know this is old, but when you re-installed the 2015 updated driver did you do the whole suit?

 

I'm not sure which driver causes the slit freeze but I feel it's something within New radeon driver that causes the issue that now is certed for Windows 10 update
