Re: T61P Graphic problems--random shut down, BSOD, Crash

Which bios are you guys talking about? The motherboard or GPU? Also, how do you install the new bios?

Gaizers, are the crashes delayed for 2 hours or are they gone completely with the bios?

Thanks :)

I hope this is it with the bios update....I've updated mine to latest bios but still only have 1x 2gb stick of ram in at work...I'll put back in the other 2gb stick when I get home later.

Also Gaizers mention his Power Manager version updated to 1.22 but when I checked my version I'm at 2.11  lol 

But could it be that all this is caused by a ThinkVantage program ?

Glad to hear that gaizers had fixed the problem.
And I also found the new Video driver saying

Version 6.14.11.5685

  • (Fix) The computer will reboot when entering to suspend mode with Intel AMT (Active Management Technology) ready.

noone:
 
What kind of network connection are you using?
Try using ethernet and disabling the wireless one. I sloved part of the problem in Warcraft III by doing this.

Hi everyone, got the Box from DHL today - sending the unit out now. I placed a letter in the box with instructions to use PCMark03, 06 or Vantage 05 for testing as they all fail.

hi man
now, i test with alot of drivers.
i can play crysis with no hang by lenovo forceware 156.66.
and must disable multi gpu (in 3d tab setting of nvidia control panel).
if not disable it crysis will crash.

you must set
Multi-display/mixed-GPU acceleration to
Single display performance mode

other drivers from laptopvideo2go.com, i can't success to run crysis.

if have other update i will tell you all.
