Re: Thinkpad p70 does not turn on

2016-07-23, 15:42 PM

I'm on bios 2.06. Last night, while my machine was running but idle, the screen flickered and went blank. I could not get the screen to wake up. I have logmein installed on my machine so I used my phone to log on. The p70 was running fine except for the internal screen not working. I shut it down and re-booted and it's working now. I had not had this issue with 2.05. There is still a bug in 2.06 or in the nvidia driver. I'm running in discrete mode only not hybrid mode. Hopefully this issue will be resolved. As of now I'm reverting back to 2.05.

Make certain that you have the Thunderbolt controller updated to FW 16 per the requirements of BIOS 2.06.

Hello!

 

So .... 1 week later... is the issue fixed?

 

Does your P70 works fine with attached HDMI Monitor, Beamer and Dock without Errors.

 

And does your P70 boot with attached HDMI, Dock?

I'll probably never know because I'm not running the risk of enabling fast boot. I'm so tired of taking this machine apart and putting it back together.

Leave "Fast Startup" off. It's not worth fooling around with this setting in Windows 10 which has caused so many issues with the P70. I turned it off as one of the first tasks that I performed in the system when I got it in March.

Yes, since the latest BIOS-Update everythink works fine:

I can shutdown my laptop with an external Monitor over HDMI and inside the docking station.

Also with "WIndows 10 fast restart" it works fine.

So the problems seems to be solved now.

P70 had problems for me, deactivating fast boot solved the issue. Now system starts a bit slower, but in 30 seconds is operative.

After the problem is solved now, I think the P50/P70 is a very good product. Very stable and fast.

With the newest BIOS I didn't have any problems.
