I was having this exact same problem with my y50 it was the SSHD I bought an samsung evo 840 SSD and the stuttering is gone. It sucks that the only fix for this problem is buying an SSD but it's a good investment in the long run.

This is unacceptable Lenovo. Tell us you're working on this issue or at least acknowledge you're aware of it. If you want to keep your customers then make them happy with responses and updates!

I saw there is a newer version of the Lenovo Energy Management for Win 8.1, version 22.214.171.124 made available on 8/12/14.
Could I get some feedback on whether this new version resolves the issue?

I used to experience all sort sof annoying problems with the default 1TB 8GB SSD cache drive that I had installed by default in my laptop. The problems only went away when I moved to a SSD. Now the machine is 100 times faster. But I used to get similar hangs whilst booting, sometimes just staying at the BIOS screen. Or just insane waiting times even with the i7 and 16GB of RAM etc. when opening programs. I'd say it's just a slow drive despite the cache and etc. I now have that 1TB sitting in an external caddy and it's still really slow to spin up. Plus it's noisy. Definitely a bad, budget drive if you ask me.

I bought my laptop Lenovo Y50-70 Touch two months ago by Amazon. I was playing without problem games like: Tintanfall, Portal 2, LOL, Team Fortress 2, Borderlands 2, and this are optimized with Geforce Experience. Until yesterday when I trying to play by first time Left 4 Dead 2 (also optimized by Geforce Experience), after 5 minutes of game, I get an error in the game: The game stops and start an infinite loop of a very annoying noise… After 5 min without the possibility of remove the game ( Exit to task administrator or Alt+TAB) the laptop shutdown itself. When I turn on again the laptop was very very slow, and when I tried to open a game my laptop totally freezes or if I want to of simply open the configuration of Control panel Nvidia the laptop freeze it too, and then, a few seconds after appears a message: Display driver Nvidia Windows Kernel Mode driver has stopped responding and has successfully.
I tried to Uninstall and reinstall drivers (Safe Mode) but still having the error( I used such older version as new version). And I only could reinstall drivers in Safe mode, because in regular mode my installation freeze and not continue.
Seems look whatever the situation that I need the use of the GPU Nvidia, the laptop entry to freeze and not work.
What you recommend me? Is better that I don’t find more “solutions” and packaged and ship my laptop for warranty?
Thank you a lot.
