Re: Y70 screen (flashing - blinking)

2015-11-23, 6:25 AM

I noticed something strange and made me afraid of hardware issues ..

Yesterday, i changed BIOS SETUP settings @ Graphics Device (something like that) from switchable mode to UMA >> its mean that i turn off nvidia gpu from running on my lenovo Y50, i used my laptop for an hour and there wasn't any flicker or blind, then i changed settings again to switchable mode i hit a flicker on windows logon screen !!

 

The most strange thing ever was a flicker - blind on BIOS SETUP screen so i think its a hardware issue not from windows power management or all the staff i've tried last two days before ... i think there is something wrong on BIOS firmware, i have no idea what will be responsible for that !!

 

Lenovo must check that madness and solve it, its related with many many of customers

How did you change the power setting in Windows to a maximum processor state of 99%? I would really appreciate if u could explain it to me.

Go to Control Panel\System and Security\Power Options. Chose Power Saver mode, its important. Becouse in other modes windows allow processor go to turbo boost mode,wath cause flickering. Then in Power options click Change Plan settings, then Change Advanced Power settings. In new window you can choose all setings like in High Performance mode, except Processor Power Managmet-Minimum Procesor State shud be 99% or less. It means your processor not work on 100% but on 99% or what you put there. Rly hope LENOVO fix it.

P.S. Remember, Power mode must be POWER SAVER. Thx. Sorry about my english :)

Nothing wrong with your English.

I figured it out myself! With windows 10 go to the battery symbol and rightclick -> energy options, then u see your energy saving plan, next to your chosen plan (balanced, battery saving or max performance) you schould see a link to edit energy saving settings (schould be the English translation, my sytstem language is German) -> go to advanced settings -> find the dropdown menue for processor energy management -> maximum perfomence (or smth like this) -> there you can change from 100% to 99% -> reboot. 

 

As far as i experienced it worked for me. Try it out!

 

Maybe some of these expressions are not the exact same, i tried to translate it in English, but maybe there are differences beetween the German and English version. But i think you schould be able to find your way through ;-).

Second too late.

My way works as well, but will only max. processor performance to 99%, with your way will he continue too boost over 100%? Because if you change the minimum value, it will just dont go under 99%? So the problem would continue, or am i thinking wrong?

Hey guys,
I set maximum processor state to 99% (balanced mode), change default physx unit (from nvidia control panel) to nvidia GTX960M and prefered graphics to High Performance nvidia ... I haven't any flicker yet (12 Hours before),
I'm also playing while charging battery not on discharge mode or not charging mode, i think there is something wrong while battery fully charged and you keep power cable on wall, keep in mind you can't play well without AC.
I hope it will be a false power management software values, I hope we can manage voltage and clock from bios to mitigate high temperature also without damaging any hardware part (you can notice customers and set a minimum values and maximum values)
