Re: windows 10 upgrade for y40-70 error "Internal Power Error"

Same issue. I can't get it to boot in safe mode in the first place. I tried going into the shift restart mode to get into safe mode but then I always have the Internal power error bug during restart and it does not keep the boot into safe mode configuration. 

 

Needless to say, not a great transition into windows 10.

Re: windows 10 upgrade for y40-70 error "Internal Power Error"

Mark,

 

Based on what you're expressing in your reply this is a video driver related issue, correct? As long as we are fully up-to-date with our video drivers do you see any other reason for us to encounter this error message every time we log into Windows? 

 

I have since reverted to Windows 8.1 because the laptop would not stay logged in long enough to even navigate to a web page before I received the blue screen. I want to make sure I take all precautionary measures the next time Windows tells me it's ready to upgrade to Windows 10.

Here are some options... http://www.7tutorials.com/4-ways-boot-safe-mode-windows-10

I held Shift Down while restarting the system. Took me 3-4 tries since it would frequently Blue Screen.

I have updated my display and audio drivers to Windows 10 compatible drivers and I'm still getting these blue screens.  Please Lenovo, fix this issue!

Tried the fix posted earlier in the thread and still got blue screen. It would take longer to get the blue screen but it would still happen. I reverted back to Windows 8.1 and will wait to upgrade until the issue is fixed.

The same exact thing happened to me. Except right in the middle of me installing the new driver I received the BSOD.

Same issue here.  I have a y40-80.  I get about 30 seconds of desktop before it bluescrens with the internal_power_error.  Will try updating/reverting my video and report back on details and findings.

Go in Device Manager and choose "Update Driver" for the AMD. It should take you up to version 15.200.1065.0, this works well with W10.

Uninstalling and disabling the driver, and updating did absolutely nothing to fix the issue. The computer does not last more than a minute before bluescreening.
