Re: New video driver available from ATI for RADEON HD 5730...but no for LENOVO why????

Hi

 

I have a lenovo ideapad y560d, i720 chip with ati radeon HD5730. I have had display driver issues once or twice previously where the computer would just shut off. Lately during gameplay my laptop would just shut down in the middle of gameplay, and the laptop would not restart. I had done the startup repair a few times and it would say "bad display driver". so this is how I got to this place and forum. I had followed the above instructions. Also updated my bios. And had gone through a sequence of steps that led me to have a driver that was ATI RADEON 5700 series, with a driver date  of XX-11-2010 i.e. nov. 2010. I rebooted and proceeded to play a game during which the laptop died again. 

 

So now I have gone through the above steps again. the graphic driver date is now 31/8/2010. What is the date of the latest driver for ATI RADEON HD5730?

Do you mean latest driver avaliable for Radeon HD 5730 FROM Lenovo or AMD? If you mean AMD, then the latest driver for it was 07/28/2011 (Catalyst 11.8 WHQL).

Using of NON-Lenovo graphics driver may disable switchable graphics function.

The problem maybe that the version you have downloaded was meant for desktop type graphics card. I'm using Radeon HD 6550M with Catalyst 11.8 (AMD.). Doing fine here no problems encountered. Here's the link for Catalyst 11.8 Mobility(AMD) 64-BIT: http://www2.ati.com/DriVeRs/mobile/11-8_mobility_vista_win7_64_dd_ccc_ocl.exe 32-BIT: http://www2.ati.com/DriVeRs/mobile/11-8_mobility_vista_win7_32_dd_ccc_ocl.exe

@yigit

Thanks.. tried that.. and followed that thread to this and updated drivers to 11.8 version posted by staringatstars (as per below). today (24hrs later), the laptop shut down again, in the middle of game play. I did notice, the left side of laptop ontop of heat vents was very hot. I did let it cool, restarted it. Installed a temperature monitoring software. in 2 hours since installation, noticed temps spiking from 60 deg C during idle to 90C during game play, though vents weren't hot to the touch the way it was when the laptop shut down. so there maybe heat issue as well with the laptop. If it is, I will post to the corresponding thread accordingly. wish I had known about the problems with this model of laptops prior to purchase.

Re: New video driver available from ATI for RADEON HD 5730...but no for LENOVO why????

After a day of working flawlessly, i turned off the computer and windows was doing a security update. I tried to boot it up today and the laptop is caught in a perpetual cycle of bootup repair.tried system restore twice, prior to the time of windows update, and it just results in the same bootup repair. The last few times, after the repair was finished, it would not start anymore. 

 

The startup repair message is as follows:

 

problem event name: startup repair offline

problem signature01: 6.1.7600.16385

problem signature02: 6.1.7600.16385

problem signature03: unknown

problem signature04: 21200652

problem signature05: autofailover

problem signature06: 4

problem signature07: norootcause

OS version:  6.1.7600.2.0.0.256.1

locale ID: 1033

 

I'm loving the "no root cause"
