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

2008-10-23, 18:02 PM

I have a bunch of T61's I purchased in the first quarter of this year, and they have all been a little on the flaky side.  They all seem to exhibit BSODs from time to time, some more than others.  It was easy to blame Vista, but that doesn't seem to be the real problem here.

 

So, I've read the tip, and it doesn't include the 42W3784 board.  Is this also a part of the tip?

I wouldn't blame Vista.  I run Vista and ever since having my T61p fixed a few months ago, I have not had a single BSOD.  I work my machine hard and use it for gaming too.

T61p, T7800 CPU, Nvidia Quadro FX 570M GPU, WSXGA+ LDC, 4GB RAM, 200GB HDD, Intel 4965AGN wireless, 1GB Intel Turbo Memory, Vista Business 64bit

I got my T61p about a year ago and have been having issues with it for a while, through multiple OS's.  Only recently did I start using it more for 3d modeling and gaming.  Took me a while to find this forum but I have been watching the results for a few months now.  I have been hesitant to send it in because of reports that the 7653 weren't on the list and people were having issues getting them serviced, but I simply couldn't deal with the issues anymore and had to try.

 

I sent it in about a week and a half ago, and was told they swapped planar and put in a new fan.  Unfortunately the tech broke the KB bezel, and they don't know when they will get more in stock, but I look forward to getting it back.  I am worried it will come back with the same 7653 board and not the fixed part, but I guess I will just have to wait and see.  Hoping they get the replacement bezel in stock soon.  I was told the swap was done last Tuesday.

 

Anyway, I will post the results when I get it back.

Ok,

 

Well, I got an email yesterday saying that my repair had been delayed and then today it shows up on my doorstep.

 

Anyway, I did a quick check to see what was done and it now has an FRU 43Y9048 planar in it.  Does anyone know anything about this board?  I am wondering 2 things - 1) if there is any history of shutdowns with it and 2) what CPU can be ran on it?

 

The computer seems clean and solid with no obvious damages/defects. I will go ahead and do my planned format/reinstall of vista 64 and will post the results in a few days.

 

Regards,

 

Perry

This isn't actually on a T61 or Lenovo Product but instead an HP 8510 using a Quadro FX 570m.  It seems like this card all across the board has issues.  Not only in Lenovo but also in HP machines.  In the higher dollar version of the 8510w (8610 I think it is.) with the larger quadro card has the same problem.  I have tried every driver/bios/firmware combination along with hardware setup possible now on this machine and another machine.  I saw on the HP site where they said they were really avoiding a recall on these but they were close.

My t61p freezed again when I was playing Need for speed: Undercover this morning!!!!

 

I had it changed in June 2008 and got it back with the same 42w7653 motherboard. As it showed no problem since then I thought maybe the 42w7653 motherboard was somehow "modified" and doesn't require a new 44C3931. But the problem came back today.  The replaced 42w7653 is showing the same symptom as the original one. After playing the game for about 30 minutes, the screen freeze and all I can do is shut down the computer.

 

I can take it to the service center to replace the motherboard again(which is time-money-effort consuming) or just remove one dimm of memory by myself.  I'm so dissapointed by the staff in the service center because they didn't replaced the motherboard with the right type.................

Hi everyone, I'm back to find out what is the fix for the random shutdown for the T61P - Please see my posts from Feb of this year.  Does anyone know what the "correct" part is - is it 44C3931?

I need to get this resolved.  Thanks,

Hi, I checked under the memory for my part, it's 42W7653 - it's not listed on the reference.
