My pc is no longer detecting my Nvidia GPU (Code 45) as of december 6th, 2018. On occasion, after a restart, the GPU will be detected in device manager as connected and working properly. When entering the properties menu of the card, the properties box will stop responding then BSOD with the following error codes.
This PC has switchable graphics with integrated Intel HD Graphics 630 that is the only display adapter shown in device manager. When the "show hidden devices" option is enabled, the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 is shown but grayed out with stop code 45.
Switchable graphics is enabled in BIOS
Fast Startup is disabled in BIOS
Prior to the update around November 29th, 2018, both Display adapters were able to switch between eachother automatically depending on what I was using the PC for.
Solutions I have already attempted:
Ideas on what's wrong:
Has anyone had any similar issues? I've been attempting to fix this for 3+ weeks now with no luck.
This is extremely frustrating. Especially for this to render my pc nearly useless during finals week and the holiday season. The intel integrated HD graphics is unable to handle Solidworks and other intensive CAD programs while I am unable to play any games as an error is thrown stating I lack the supported graphics card. My warranty expired the end of September this year to make it even more frustrating.
This is my second laptop from Lenovo, the first being the Y500 in 2013. I chose to buy the Yoga 720 because I had a positive experience with the Y500. In the future, I had planned to buy another Lenovo laptop, however these constant headaches from extended periods of lack of support of third party components and nagging updates of proprietary bloatware is making me reconsider my consumer choices.
