X1 Extreme Gen 2 NVIDIA Driver upgrade fail BSOD - OS Corruption :(

2020-08-16, 1:01 AM

Model 20QV. Stable machine regularly patched. I pushed the CPU and drive harder than usual the last two months. An NVIDIA driver upgrade I did not manually request automatically started without prompt Monday Aug 10th. It failed with BSOD. Reboot/windows automatic repair eventually restored OS from a restore point. But a few minutes later the driver tried to upgrade automatically again, and BSOD again. Cycle happened twice as I recall. But then there were no Restore points to recover from. Machine OS Reset failed (with and without keeping personal files).

 

Acquired the Recovery OS download Friday. Installed Saturday. Then the Lenovo Vantage critical install of new NVIDIA driver generated the BSOD again. Also tried upgrading using Windows Update before Lenovo vantage. Same problem. Stop Code DPC WATCHDOG VIOLATION. 

 

It appears Lenovo Vantage attempting to install this driver: NVIDIA Driver for Windows 10 (Version 1803 or later) - ThinkPad P1 Gen 2 (Types: 20QT, 20QU), X1 Extreme Gen 2 (Types: 20QV, 20QW)

 

Could it be to do with this from the NVIDA readme - should this be dealt with automatically?  "Chipset driver (N2OIC**W.zip) must be installed first before installing NVIDIA  driver."

 

Suggestions?

Just in case others have this problem. The system board was corrupted and needed to be replaced. System stable since.

Just to be sure, what Windows 10 OS version are you using?


For your information, there is an (another) ongoing problem with X1 laptops, Windows 10 2004 Update, and KB4566782 released on august 11 (past tuesday). It BSOD.

 

Maybe it is related to your problem.

Thank you. Win 10 64 bit Pro. Whichever build was automatically upgraded by last week. But now of course I am using the factory build on the Lenovo Recovery OS download. So I guess now I'm at a broken 1904. Literally a fresh install from that Lenovo factory image, and then I click Lenovo Vantage Critical Updates. And NVIDIA upgrade starts. And BSOD OS corrupted again :(
