BSOD on P50

Not sure if this is caused by recent Lenovo Vantage update, but I have been having BSOD after awakening my P50 from sleep. 

The error message said it's driver error without any further information. There is a QR code for the error but it's unrecognizable. 

 

I had similar problem before with the Intel Driver, but it was fixed by some updates. Is this again caused by the Intel driver? Anyone else?

Re: BSOD on P50

Very interesting. Curious if you are talking about a consistent error when returning from sleep, or was it a one-off error?

 

I've found Windows 10 so incredibly stable on my P50 compared with earlier versions of Windows or Thinkpad. But that said, I recently had a BSOD (last week?) although it wasn't just after an update or sleep, it just sort of happened mid-use. 

 

(I do find it funny that the BSOD has been so rare for me, that I didn't even know that's what a BSOD looked like in Windows 10, and was pleasantly surprised they provided a QR code and such!)

Re: BSOD on P50

For me, the BSOD has been happening many times after suspensions lately. But not always after sleep.

I do have some BSOD happening in the mid of use at random times (before the last Windows update). This arises possibly because I rarely shut down the computer...

Re: BSOD on P50

Can't say I have seen that. And I also reboot very rarely (often going to sleep, in and out of docking station, and possibly weeks between reboots.

Re: BSOD on P50

Just happened again to me. "Driver Power Status" error. 

 

I have updated the Windows 10 to the most recent 1803 version. The last BIOS update to v1.50 didn't fully go through, which encountered some error and recovered to the previous image as the update message told me. But the BIOS number has changed to v1.50, which makes it impossible to reinstall the recent v1.50 update.

Re: BSOD on P50

Happened again this morning. Basically, BSOD happens on every resume after suspension now. If there is any diagnostic tools or some way to reinstall the bios, that would be nice.

Re: BSOD on P50

You should be able to revert the BIOS to the 1.49 level. You may need to set an option in the BIOS to allow reverting the BIOS (it's in the SECURITY section). Then see https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/us/en/downloads/DS106108. Download the 1.49 level of the BIOS (N1EUJ32W)

and install it. BOOT. Then download the 1.50 BIOS (N1EUJ33W) and install that.

Re: BSOD on P50

Thank you for the link. I have downgraded and then reinstalled the v1.50 BIOS, but the problem is still there. BSOD every time I awaken the computer up. I am not sure what is really the root cause. If no one else experiences this issue, maybe it's just some of my specific external monitor or something along the line...

Re: BSOD on P50

Update: I can narrow the problem down to the USB 3.0 Thinkpad docking station. See also https://www.displaylink.org/forum/showthread.php?t=66109

 

Not sure if Lenovo should update their docking station drivers to solve this issue, or I should wait for DisplayLink to fix it...

Re: BSOD on P50

Exact same symptom. I suspect NVMe drive. I've had dozens of ThinkPad and none of it was like this.
