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

2007-12-09, 6:53 AM
Hello All;
 
    I just received my T61p yesterday Dec 7th, and have the same issue as all of you, most games I can't even start they lock up before the menus are even available.  I have it with 2Gig ram which is split 1 and 1, running windows xp with the latest drivers..
 
Hopefully we'll get some official news from a lenovo rep on here.
 
...Mike

Don't do that.  You already had a mod response at my previous response to another user in this very same thread

If I was satisfied with your previous answer, I wouldn't have posted at all. It seems to me a lot of T61p owners at TPForums and NotebookReviewForums are having this problem. So far I haven't been too far impressed with Lenovo, going by a 25 page thread at NBR here: http://forum.notebookreview.com/showthread.php?t=181232

Would you please contact an engineer that is working on this issue and ask him what the problem is, temporary solutions, and the timeframe for the "fix." Or if they have even started to look into the problem at all?

Snarky remarks back to a mod's instruction are rarely a good idea in any forum.  This one is no different than TPF or NBR.
 
Lenovo is actively aware of the problem some users are having.  You're unlikely to get any update until after generalsu's notebook is received and analyzed.

I've read through the threads and can say the same people are crying wolf and starting threads at different sites.  However, Lenovo designed the T61 series with Thinkvantage programs for business applications.  It simply works.
 
For those gamers that are crying wolf, they should know what to do.  Simply clean install any OS without the Thiinkvantage TSRs and you will see the true potential of the laptop with the latest 3D games.   It simply works.  There is no issue with the hardware.

How can you even say that when the mod says the Lenovo is aware of the issue? As for myself, the problem was noted out of the of box and after I did a clean install without any Thinkvantage applications. If you do not have a T61p yourself with both RAM DIMMs occupied, I don't see how any of your input can be reliable.

My situatin, performed clean install of both Vista 32 & XP Pro, no ThinkVantage options installed and latest Lenovo certified drivers..   same problem with a 2nd DIMM installed.  Pull out the DIMM and "bing" the problem goes away.

I own several T series laptops, including a T61p with 4gb ram (2 dimms).  With a T61p fully loaded from Lenovo, the system locks up.  With a clean install of Vista or XP, without any Lenovo drivers or apps, the T61p works.  Even playing Crysis (3D game), the T61p has run for hours without a single crash.  However, I would not recommend Crysis, as it runs very hot.

When did you purchase your T61p?
