Lenovo Yoga 500 15IBD mystery restarts (BSOD)

Use Yoga 500 15IBD around 2 months. Bought with Windows 8.1, but same day ugraded to Windows 10 (never used with Windows 10).

Make clean install + drivers from Lenovo website.

Every week computer self restarts (2-3times per week).

Is this while running idle or under load?


What surface is it being used on? (getting at ventilation)


Leaning towards heat, but could be power issues or something else.


Scape that, just noticed the dropbox links (its been one of those days) if memory serves bad_pool_caller is a processor 'misfire' Check in device manger that the processor is running correctly (ie flags 'device is working properly' this is stated in the devices properties (right click DM entry) )


if need be,uninstall, and have windows install them (this can be done in the right click menu of the device in DM selecting 'update driver software')


Normally if this doesn't fix the issue its very often software based, ie something installed is causing the issue, bad drivers probably the top contributors, but not exclusively. Posting the .dmp file (google is your friend) would almost certainly flag the culprit.

Last time restarted when kids watched move (Netflix).
Usually restarting when browse websites, watch YouTube.
Think there no problems with ventilation. Notebook always on table.
Today updated BIOS. Try wait couple days to ensure this update sorted problem or not.

Probably not much help but I had very similar BSOD's ocasionally with my Y3P running 8.1.  I was never able to figure out the cause.  A clean restore didn't fix the issue.  When I installed Win10, the problem went away.  Even after restoring to 8.1 (with one touch, not windows restore), the issue remained solved.  With driver and bios issues resolved, I've since returned to win10 and haven't seen a BSOD in many months.  Don't know if that helps, but.....good luck!
