X201: Random Shutdown; Screen goes off

2010-07-11, 21:25 PM

Hi!

 

My Screen just went off (it quickly reduced it's brightness level and then was completly off), but the notebook was still up and running. I wasn't using the notebook at all when this happened!

 

WLAN, bluetooth, the third led next to those two (whatever it is :p ) battery and the led with a circled 'Z' where up. HD led blinked every now and then.

 

pressing uppercase to force the uppercase-led to go on didn't work (i wanted to test if the notebook still gets input), but fn + numlock did work (this led went on).

 

No other keys showed any reaction (e.g. fn + f4 for sleep). i started to film it with my mobile phone and after ~5 minutes all LEDs went off and the notebook was off too.

 

now i am completly in the dark for two reasons:

 

Why did this happen (the third time now in three months)?

What can I possibly do to check, what has caused this problem?

 

btw i have made a video about this but i have no sdcard slot available atm so i can't show it.

I disabled Multi-Core in BIOS so i don't have regular lags.
I always keep energy saving settings to "Maximum Performance" so i don't have regular contrast issues.
I deinstalled ThinkAdvantage Access Connections so i don't have random WLAN Adapter "power offs".

It is exactly this error: Win7 build 7100 Event-ID 41 Kernel-Power BSOD

 

though they don't talk about a the exact behaviour i experienced, the error @ eventlist showed event-id 41 and a BSOD (which i could obviously not see due to not working display ...)

 

For some people it seems that faulty memory sticks where the cause, for others bad driver software, etc.

Any ideas?

 

€: my interpretation:

* pci.sys is listed as a possible troublemaker

* pci-communicaitonscontroller is the only device i didn't install the driver for as far as my device manager tells the truth

* as there is no driver on the lenovo support & driver page what shall i do?

But i don't think it has anything to do with that, rather than with power management (yet again ...) or chipset driver or ... i am completly stuck ...
