You said:
"have all the latest drivers and bios version for all my components from official sites"

You should use the graphics drivers from Lenovo site.
Others can cause problems.

Well I would not have found that!

Great tip for users/gamers with the AMD/Intel graphics.

you must use run-regedit-search for enableulps when you find it modify 1 to 0 and restart your pc.what it does is not letting windows registry to stop your gpu when its not used so it can consume less energy and beacuse of the new generation components the programs dont know wich gpu should use the energy saving or the high performance one(unless you specificaly direct-y mean in ati panel wich gpu uses the executabile but only temporary beacuse after restart is bcak again,need new driver from ati t memorize wich keys definition you make).these is a tweek because windows 7 when it was out there werent the new generations of todays gpu 32nm and procesors wich consumes small amount of energy for long lasting surfing not gaming specialy. you must be very carrefully with your pc because it consumes your battery more quickly but improves your performance like hell.basically it enables full throttle for your dedicated gpu,but ONLY FOR THOSE THAT HAVE 2 GPU'S,it doesn't matter if it is nvidia or ati.y hope that helps....
