Re: Y50-70 Windows regularly freezes when 1TB SSHD is spinning up

Just replace the sshd with a ssd guys, that is the best solution...the reason people break the back plate is because one of the screws is tricky to take out. Just be patient and gentle and its not hard. Lenovo will not do anything for you except say the problem was not replicated.

Down with Lenovo and its support team that ruined my first experience of buying a gaming laptop.

Never been more upset in my life.:smileymad:

I hope lenovo with acknowlege this issue and give us customers an answer! just experienced the worst customer service in the UK, insulting me for didn't read these complaints already made on support forum before buying y50-70. I mean, really????? 

I sent the laptop back for repairing twice, (only got it since July!) both times for blinking screen issue. first time it returned as just bad after a week. and this time they are returning it as faulty without doing anything about it !!! after spent over a month in germany!!!

 

I think we all need an answer here!

Frozenkaos - that's odd. When I sent mine for repair they took three weeks, I phoned them up and they said if had been that long and not repaired they would give me RMA. So they did and I returned it for a full refund. You should ask for the same. I now bought an acer and currently have that sent off for repair, ho hum it's not just lenovo it seems

piebomb - I actually asked the operator about having a refund, and he told me no refund will be issued and I have to settle with the faulty product until they found a way to fix it probably 10 months later. The operator was so rude, even throwing insults at the me like 'you are such a pain' I had to remind him that he is still on the phone...

 

and well good luck with acer!

I'd try again if I were you, make a complaint. Maybe you got unlucky with a dodgy operator

Just a thought, anyone tried this:?

Download CrystalDiskInfo, and go to Functions, advanced features, AAM/APM control and dissable the Advanced Power Managment

 

Just saw some people with an acer laptop were getting freezes in games and this stopped them, maybe it would for you chaps as well.

Having tried all of the suggested fixes from Lenovo without success, I recently replaced the hard drive with an ssd myself and the problem has now disappeared completely.

 

I don't know whether it's a hardware defect or something to do with drivers, but those WD hybrid drives are clearly at the root of the issues described in the this very lengthy thread and I think it is disingenuous of Lenovo to continually try to fob users off with inadequate support.

Do i need to buy a SSD to solve this ? Can't i just buy another HDD ? Also , did the disk usage spiking to 100% and causing hangs in the system issue solve too when you switched to SSD ?
