Re: W530 Windows 10, Problem with Optimus/Nvidia



Even we have checked with Windows 7 its working fine and have you tried all the settings which was posted earlier in Windows 7 like changing settings in BIOS and all.

And here's a quick question have you tried to install the drivers manually from Device Manager?

If that the case you can try running System diagnostics from here


Do let us know how it goes?

Re: W530 Windows 10, Problem with Optimus/Nvidia

Interesting, I had the same issue with a K1000M in my W530. I hadn't been using it much lately, and it was a backup machine so was barely used ever (20 hours or less on this machine), but am sure that the K1000M was working previously because I was playing games on it. However, when installing Win10, I had the exact same issues as you. I gave up messing with drivers and BIOS settings, and reverted back to Windows 7, only to find it was crashing hard whenever I attempted to use the K1000M. Luckily, 85 days left on my warranty or something. Lenovo support received it, replaced the mainboard, and overnighted it back to me quickly.


Your experience combined with mine makes me apprehensive to try Windows 10 again, yet I have another W530 that has had Windows 10 on it and BIOS set to "discrete" for over a year now, with no problems, so I probably shouldn't be worried. Once my msata SSD shows up, I'll be putting Windows 10 on the repaired W530 and see how it goes (still have some warranty left in case Win10 drivers fry the GPU somehow, haha!).

And we're back...
