P70 intermittent display issue

2017-02-26, 14:02 PM

Hi!

 

I would like to hear from other P70 owners if they might have experienced intermittent display color changes. The issue I have encountered shows up for a few seconds every now and then and makes the display turn more yellow/orange for a short while. The issue is espescialy pronounced when the Lenovo settings app is running. I am runnig W10 with all latest drivers and the system is an i7 with the M3000M Quadro GPU. The issue also shows on an external display.

 

I would also like to know from other Lenovo owners about their eperience with Lenovo support and for how long support cases has been running. In my particular display case Lenovo has been attempting repair 4 times over a period of almost 2 months, with all sorts of inconvenience and extreme waste of time on my behalf. Finaly Lenovo has offered replacement, but before I agree to this and even more incovenience, I would like to hear from others.   

 

Thanks in advance

Steen

Hello Steen

 

I have had my P70 for over a year.  I have not experienced any of the behaviour that you have described.  For comparison my configuration is:

 

 - 17.3 FHD(1920x1080) IPS Non-Touch

- NVIDIA Quadro M3000M 4GB
- With Colour Sensor

 

I run in discrete mode for graphics (as opposed to hybrid).

 

I do keep up to date with the driver updates too.

 

Hope this helps.

 

Regards

 

Andy

Hi Steen

 

Yes, only the nvidia gpu.  I hardly ever run on battery and a lot of the time I am on a docking station with 2 external monitors in addition to the laptop screen.  The rest of the time I have 2 monitors, 1 connected to the hdmi and 1 connected to the mini-DP.  Other than a flickering issue on the dock when I first got it, which was resolved with a firmware update, I have had no display issues, touch wood!

 

Regards

 

Andy

Hi Steen

 

You need to set it in the BIOS as well, then the Intel driver does not load at all.

 

Regards

 

Andy

Hi Andy

I have disabeld Intel Graphics like you in BIOS, but now I can't control display brightness anywhere. Do you know how to do that?

Regards, Steen

Hi Steen

 

The F5 /F6 keys with the Fn shift do it on my P70 (if you have the Fn shift configured on the just F5 / F6)

 

Regards

 

Andy

Hi Andy

They're configured same way, but as soon as I disable Intel graphics they dont work anymore, nor does Lenovo settings Display Brightness or Windows Brightness control. Very strange but typical Lenovo...

Regards, Steen :-)
