Lenovo ideapad y560 graphic dancing pixels when ac adapter is plugged!!!

Hello.

 

I have a big problem. 5 days ago I bought the lenovo ideapad y560 and I had not any troubles until yesterday. Suddenly my display became black and the windows popup message said that the display driver was broken and had to be reset or so. I have read all topics about problems with this problem and I'm really angry. It can't be, that a laptop which is 5 days old, start to have problems...

 

When I unplug my ac adapter and run the notebook with the akku, the display driver does not crash... I already made a bios update to the newest version and I already downloaded the newest graphic driver.

 

Please can someone help me?

 

Yours Viktor

re-installing drivers and power manager may help you.

issue persists before upgrading flash or after?

You can try to test what happen if you use Windows Basic Theme, or just disable Aero.

 

Many drivers has this kind of error.

 

Try it and tell us.

Tried and changed nothing. I have bios version 59 and installed the newest ati driver from the lenovo downloadpage. Also uinstalled the engery manager, tried it - nothing changed, and reinstalled it and also nothing changed. But when I just unplug the ac adapter it works well! ...

Sorry now english:

Here is the gpu-z info, with temperature and so on:

 

 

EDIT: I know have found a workaround for my problem (but it's just crap ...):

 

In the ATI Control Center there is the menuitem called PowerPlay. There you can define which power option should be used if you have your ac adapter plugged in or if you don't have it plugged it in - just using your akku. Now if i set the ac adapter option to "maximal batterylifetime" the problem stops and there are no dancing pixels and the driver does not stop working anymore. But the problem is, it is maximal energy and not maximal power, and i of course want to use the maximum power of my video card...

 

Yours Viktor

Had you try to reinstall your Windows 7 from scratch? I mean, do a plain-clean install?

You can use your Windows 7 serial number from the bottom of your computer.
