Lenovo Yoga 2 13 Freeze no BSOD

2016-11-06, 13:10 PM



I'm experiencing issues with my Lenovo Yoga 2 13. It started at the time of the anniversary update of Windows 10 Home although I can't be sure it really started there. Before that everything was running smoothly.



- In some applications the sound gets noisy, like an old scratched vinyl disk.

- When running my old Warcraft III (normally in Win XP compatibility mode), the computer freezes in a loud buzzing sound after a random time, from 2 minutes to 1 hour. Forced shut-down pressing the power knob is the only way to unfreeze it.


What I tried and didn't improve the situation:

- Reinstalling the applications.

- Changing the audio drivers to a generic version.

- Updating Windows and all possible drivers.

- Reliability monitor


-While trying to update the BIOS using Insyde H20FFT from the Lenovo Support I get an error:

"Get platform ROM map error in SMI!"

SMI Return Code: 0xEF


I'm trying to figure out if it's a hardware issue before reinstalling everything. I'd be happy to try your suggestions.
