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

Do you mean minimum processing state or maximum processing state or both? (for high perf)

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

I just bought a Y570 yesterday with the 555M and unfortunately didn't know about these issues before having to do research because I too have the problem. After hours of trying different "fixes" through different forums, nothing has worked for me. Setting the maximum power state doesn't work for me, either. It baffles me that there simply is not a fix for something like this that has been going on for so long.

Would it even be useful to try to call Lenovo technical support for help at this point?

Put both of them (maximum and minimum) on 99% in the High performance power plan.

That doesn't fix it for me, either.

Do you have the latest driver (295.73)? If not, perform a CLEAN update and turn on the high performance power plan and change the maximum and minimum power state to 99% (plugged in and battery). It has worked for the person who found this fix and it has worked for myself as well, so it must work on your lenovo too. Hope it works for you guys. :D

Well, when I got my laptop yesterday I actually did a clean install of the operating system and installed all drivers from scratch, including the latest nVidia driver, 295.73.

I honestly don't know what else to try, I'll try fiddling around and if I come across a possible fix I will be sure to tell you. In the meantime, why don't you try calling lenovo technical support, who knows, they may turn out to be useful although I doubt it.

Did you ever considered the thought that they know but have no cue.

 

Before I sold my Y570 I got it going "well enough" to play by setting every thing to maximum power/high performance except in the Nvidia control panel 3D tab (I think it was the 3D tab, if it isn't the 3D tab it's the one which has the drop down list with "auto select, CPU and GT555m in the field), I chose auto select in both drop down lists in whichever tab it is.

I did, that's why I asked if it would even be useful.

I did this lil 100->99% change before

It doesn't help to me at least.  Even if it does help for you, it's probably gonna be a temporary change.
