Re: Y570 - Why do games run better off my battery and choppy when its plugged in?

2011-12-08, 20:29 PM

So,

 

I got the laptop back today and it ran better.

But...

Its because they downclocked something. I suspect on the motherboard since they is what they claimed they replaced.

 

The computer did run better but still stuttered once it heated up.. just not to the degree it initally had.

 

When i sent it in, i had happened to record some benchmarks before hand. So, i know im not imagining it when i say..

 

Before I sent it in, FPS was around 45-50 with AC and about 30-40 on the battery. (Skyrim, High Settings).

After they replaced the motherboard, 30-35 on AC and 25-35 on battery.

 

So, im returning it.. but another buyer beware bit of info.

 

They tried to tell me the only way i could get a full refund is if i used that refund money to buy another one of their laptops.

Otherwise, i could only get a partial refund.

 

Because, they said, it was over the 21 days grace period they allow for purchases.

Basically, they tried to punish me for not figuring out they sent me a lemon in 21 days.

Horrible horrible horrible customer service.

 

Eventually they did say I could get a full refund though after some questions on their policies.

 

and on a "who cares now?" side note.. i asked them 3 times to send me a DVD with the OS on it.. and they told me each time they would send it and they never did.


I will never by Lenovo again.

Hey try to disable other keyboards in (region and language settings) except for English, because while in game, laptop might switch to other input keyboards such as Chinese. It worked for me after I disabled sogou pinyin.

I find it quite miserable for  Lenovo not being able to identify and solve this problem for this long. The most amusing part of the scenario is that tnone of the so-called "solutions" don't work except for limiting the cpu (which means disabling turboboost, a feature you've paid for). 

 

I wish I was aware of this problem before buying this laptop.

 

And yes, I also will never buy a Lenovo again!

Does this problem effect the Y470? So far no such issue on mine, but I only play SC2

Hello

Same problem here... "solved" by setting the CPU to 99%.

Lenovo seems to ignore this problem as no final cause and solution were made public.

Is any Lenovo official reading this topic? Or should we send our complains to Lenovo on other ways?

That solution barely does anything, it only improves it by a fraction.
