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

Hi, fair enough, I didn't know planar card = motherboard in Levono speak, my bad.  I thought it had to do with the video area.  My TP61P was ordered on Dec, 7th 2007 and built sometime that month. I will point out my system would fail within seconds of launching 3D Mark 03,05 - I'm having no problems now, except Office 2007 / Vista / Norton have issues. So I removed Norton AV, and of course it hung on uninstall.  Best wishes to all with problems, I'm happy with my Lenovo.

Can an admin please reply.
I can't play video games because the constantly screen freezes. Why does this happen and is there a solution?

I'm sending mine out as soon as I get the box. I can't wait to hear if they fixed the issue, I really want to be able to play some games.

I've been following this thread for a few weeks so I thought I'd finally chime in. 

I was having the normal BSOD/reboot/crash problems like everyone else so I decided to send the computer in for repair.  The whole thing would have been 2 days if DHL hadn't been incompetant and lost my package for 2 days and then taken the weekend off.  (Seriously pathetic, 5 days for over night shipment, good job DHL..) 

The work order shows they replaced the RAM but not the planar board.  I played through the Bioshock demo without even a hiccup and before it wouldn't last more than a minute or 2.  I think I'm fixed but I'll give it a real workout this weekend to be sure.

Im pretty mad about the fact that they know something wrong but they have not publicly announced it. If I didnt go to these forums then I would have thought that the system just couldnt handle the games. They could have sent out an email to all of the affected owners or possibly recalled the product. It is a big issue and Im not sure why more attention is not paid towards it.

Hey guys!

My TP came back from depot and its working fine for two days already, no BSOD untiil now.
Again, I was not having shutdowns but only BSOD (NMI....something).

According to the work resume, they changed the planar card (MoBo) and processor.
I was very mad before, but Lenovo was always intersted on helping solving it (and still is).

After a week of testing and using it, I will post again on this same message.

Thanks Mark_lenovo for all the help.

---------------------------------------------------------------

Updating.....no BSOD until now!!! Almost a week now, and it is running fine!

Just to make it clear, changing only the memory did not work on my case....the last time they changed the MoBo and Processor. Looks like the solution for BSOD (NMI...) when doing simple things was really the "planar card".

Thanks Le novo for all the support!!!!!!! And thanks everyone on this thread that helped me solving it!!!!

I am very happy now, that is the reason why I chose Lenovo!!! A very professional company!!

Well, I'm glad to hear those that do have the problems are getting their laptop fixed.
