L13 Yoga Gen2 BIOS 1.08 crash computer

2021-04-22, 2:03 AM

I installed the new BIOS 1.08 in the Lenovo L13 Yoga gen 2 and its been crashing everytime wondows installs the intel graphics driver. I even did a clean install and same problem. Never had issue with 1.02 or 1.06, but this 1.08 release is garbage. Please fix. It wont even let me revert back to the older BIOS. My computer is now useless.

Dear Nigg,

 

I'm on the same boat... What helped was uninstalling Intel Xe GPU or Realtek Card Reader driver in Safe mode and then Windows works fine.

Maybe both drivers share some memory space and overwrite each-other data... but definitely Lenovo has to take a look at it.

 

Kindly regards,

  J.

Thanks for suggesting the issue with the Graphics Driver.  I went into the BIOS settings and changed the memory for the graphics from 256M to 512M and my computer seems to have stopped crashing.

Based on your observation I tried to play with changing video memory to 256 and 512 but still got WHEA BSOD.

What really helps is to uninstall driver for Realtek Card Reader.

 

Are you sure it works for you while having card reader installed?

It seem to work for about 2 hours but now has started crashing again. I guess it was just luck!

Yeah, I observed similar "lucky" behaviour couple of times - but 90% of time machine just crashes with WHEA BSOD while driver of Realtek card reader is installed.

Plz try to uninstall Card reader driver and just hope for quick fix from Lenovo.

Disabling the Realtek card reader using the device manager worked for me so far.  If I uninstalled it it seemed to show back up after a while.

 

I had to run chkdsk /f /r to clean the harddrive up after all the BSODs and also ran sfc /scannow to fix the Windows files.
