Y550P shuts down when playing video !

My ideapad Y550P does not seem to like it when I play videos !

It shuts down after a little while...


Had it looked at by the Lenovo service center and the diagnosis was that nothing can be down about it, except for a change of Motherboard !!!


And, seemingly it is because of some defective video chip onboard. Now dosen't that mean that the product was spurious to begin with ?!


Will Lenovo do something about this ?

Re: Y550P shuts down when playing video !

It is sad to know about your issue.

Make sure you have updated video and BIOS version.


This may resolve the issue.
