Lenovo 120s-14IAP - Frequent freezing/ crashing

Hello,

 

I purchased a Lenovo 120s-14IAP nearly four months ago and for the first three months had no real problems. However, I have had a persistent issue in the last few weeks whereby the screen totally freezes and the only option is to reset. Whilst this is pretty much guaranteed to happen whilst I'm watching a video, it can also happen at random times where I'm just looking on the internet. This is happening on a daily basis. Additionally, the laptop will occasionally reset itself. 

 

This issue seems to have coincided with an update that occured a few weeks ago (although I am unsure what this was for). 

 

Any help or assistance would be much appreciated. 

 

Many thanks,

Alastair

Yes mine does exactly the same.  USB ports stop working, screen freezes, mouse pointer dies etc....worst laptop I've ever bought.....the Lenovo 100S works fine but the 120S - hopeless....

Same here, mouse and pad stop working and the laptop frequently crashes with a blue screen. Since a couple of days.

Two weeks and no comment from Lenovo. The problem persists meaning the laptop is barely useable. Disappointing.

The freezing is super annoying, it’s really bad, i’d have to assume they don’t know what’s wrong because they would have surely replied by now. (Sorry if this notification got anyone’s hopes up)

Having the same issue. Bought as a Christmas present for my son, it's his first laptop and he is very disappointed with it. Constantly crashing/freezing. Have tried clearing cache and installed updates, which took forever, but it's still bad. Not good at all :-(

Re: Lenovo 120s-14IAP - Frequent freezing/ crashing

Clearly Lenovo don't care.....my laptop has now improved somewhat & freezes less often for unkown reasons........I haven't added or deleted any software so that isn't the cause..........but it still restarts without warning even though "sleep" etc is set to "never"...........Is Lenovo monitoring any of these forums? Who would know?

Re: Lenovo 120s-14IAP - Frequent freezing/ crashing

Exactly the same issue. 

 

Bought the laptop early november and had no problems for a few weeks, everything seemed to work fine.  Then sometime in December the freezing and crashing started during any kind of video payback. 

Nothing is spiking when this happens. The laptop just seemingly gives up and the only thing you can do is turn it off and back on. 

 

Pretty terrible that Lenovo seemingly are doing nothing about this. Appaers to be a common widespread problem..

Re: Lenovo 120s-14IAP - Frequent freezing/ crashing

Strangely enough, over the last few weeks the issue has been a lot less frequent (although I've been avoiding watching videos) and it has only frozen once in the last seven days. 

 

This is still very poor from Lenovo though as it is quite clearly some kind of design fault and they still haven't responsed. Even though I didn't expect much from a cheap laptop, it should at least work!
