Re: Lenovo y570 GTA IV freezing

AC plugged in when you are playing GTA? Energy management set to max performance?

I have a Y2P (i5) ... Feel free to ping me if you want me to test some applications with your Y2P if you have the same model. I don't mind keep doing recovery on it if needed .... =)

Re: Lenovo y570 GTA IV freezing

Try making a clean install of these drivers: download link

 

So you must go to start->type into the search button: add remove-> click on a first link-> uninstall everything you find from nvidia->you'll have to restart your pc->download the driver from the provided link->start the driver install-> choose custom installation-> check clean installation!!!!!!!-> press next and wait until it says restart now/restart later-> choose restart now, run the game again

 

Report if it helped bro!

Re: Lenovo y570 GTA IV freezing

These drivers are 285.79, but i have newer version installed (295.73).
Is it the drivers problem?

Re: Lenovo y570 GTA IV freezing

A few useres(including me) reported that the 285.79 is the only "stable" driver for our laptop y570. Try them out and I think they will help. I know for a fact that I and Velenoso666 have had the same problems with newer drivers as you're having, but velenoso666 found out that the 285.79 somehow seem to fix the stuttering/lagging problem. Give them a go by the procedure which i described in my previous post. Oh and good luck!

Re: Lenovo y570 GTA IV freezing

Nope, there is no risk while uninstalling the drivers..As long as you uninstall the nvidia drivers Smiley Happy But you practically cannot miss them hah. Now just do it and I hope you will be pleasantly surprised with the 285.79 drivers..Just stick to my instructions on how to install new drivers and select a clean install and you'll be good to go! Good luck friend!
