Re: Yoga 910 frequent stutter/hang, especially with Chrome browsing

2017-02-21, 23:33 PM

Looks like you were right. Downgrading to BIOS 34 seems to do the trick. I have been using chrome all day and no freezing. Hopefully there will be a patch from Lenovo in the future.

 

For anyone who has upgraded to BIOS 35 and needs downgrade you need to go enable the BIOS downgrade option in the BIOS config settings. To access the BIO config, turn off your computer then press the small button on the right side with a earing or pen. That should bring you to the BIOs config area.

 

Thank you for the help!

I was going to give this a shot, but it seems that BIOS 34 is no longer downloadable from Lenovo. The link posted earlier is now 404. Anybody have an updated link?

Looks like lenovo removed the link and download for that bios. But atleast they didnt remove the last good link that is still working which is https://download.lenovo.com/consumer/mobiles/2jcn28ww.exe This is the older bios version that I downgraded from 2jcn34ww to 2jcn28ww which works way better and faster than the 34 version. I was the original poster about downgrading to the 34 version bios but I later found out that lenov throttled the cpu but on the 28 version bios the cpu is not throttled and everything works superfast.

Quick status update - downgraded back to v34 several days ago and no problems still so far. Looks like it's fixed.

Lucky, looks like the BIOS version 34 is still available, you just have to change "https" to "http". Also on the v28 BIOS, does the cooling fan go crazy without the throttled CPU, or have you noticed significantly different battery life? Just curious as I may try it as well. thanks

For me the cooling fan barely ever turns on even while using google chrome. Also the touch id works much faster and reads faster the first time where as on the 34 bios it takes the second time for the touch id to work. Most importantly the boot up is noticebally faster and better for me. Also it looks like the link is back up working again and you dont have to change the address from to https to http as the link works without that change. https://download.lenovo.com/consumer/mobiles/2jcn34ww.exe

Downgraded to BIOS 34, but the issue persists for me. Will try 28 later today.

 

One note, I use a virtualization app and so I have VT-x turned on in BIOS. This true for any of the rest of you all?

Yeah I have VT-x turned on as well so I can run Ubuntu on top of windows. Still no problems after downgrading to BIOS 34 though.

Very interesting - I have VT-x turned on so I can run Ubuntu under Virtualbox.

 

Reverted back to BIOS 28 and I haven't seen the problem since, been week and a half now. So I think that has fixed it for me.

There's a bit more fan noise but it's tolerable. It doesn't run at idle, but it will rather suddenly spin up when encountering a web page with a particularly intensive ad or something. Distracting, but not a dealbreaker.
