Lenovo y50 70 Blinking after Nividia Update

Q: Lenovo y50 70 Blinking after Nividia Update

Hello, a few months back I did a driver update for Nvidia. Afterwords my screen started blinking randomly. After tinkering with stuff for hours I finally got it to stop after doing a intel graphics and bios update. Fastforward to a couple days ago. I updated Nvidia again to play some new game and now the blinking is back. However there does not seem to be a intel or bios update to try the same solution. Any help?

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)


Basically i got this new pc that has Win7 on it, GTX 970/16 gb of ram/ GIGABYTE motherboard GA-Z17OXP-SLI. Ok i downloaded my games and everything and then i went on and looked around Nividia panel then to Nividia Geforce Experiance. It said there was a driver update so i downloaded it no big deal. I noticed something wierd my Windows explorer tabs starting to not respond, my other programs such as Discord(gaming chat thingy) not responding then the next thing i knew everything froze then blue screened!!!!!! I didnt know what to do so i looked up online, tried to boot it from a usb but when i tried to put the Windows 7 thing in the usb VIA CMD(command prompt) it told me "this tool can only be run on systems boosted using PC/AT BIOS..." So i just dragged the Windows 7 installation mirror files that was inside the ISO file and copied it to the USB. I tried to boot and pressed a key, but nothing happened. So i pressed f12 and found something with the USB name and boot overrided it. Then turns out i cant load a driver when i setup win7, i said screw this and downloaded WIN10 and i setup it up and everything it was checking the disks for corrupted data it cleaned it and whatever it id then it said RESTARTING....while windows was starting up it blue screened again... and now it just says starting windows and nothing is happening

The nividia update was version: 372.70
PLEASE HELP AND READ not good with english that much.

Hi there, I bought a lenovo y50-70 last week. Its bought from someone else and when i was there, there were no issues seen on the screen. He told me that the screen blinks the first 7 seconds when turned on. This mostly occured when the laptop was cold out of start up. I started using the laptop the day after. The blinking was terrible! I went online first and checked to see if there were similar problems. And there where! I tried updating the bios, i tried updating both gfx cards. Nothing seems to help... The only thing i can think of is sending it to lenovo and let it fix. He doesnt have the receipt anymore... what else can i do?! thnx in advance!

Hi Neramusis, welcome to the forums.
Can you please post the full model number of your Thinkpad?
The only idea that I have right now is why do you try to update the drivers of you computer, specially the Lenovo Power Management Driver.
This are my tips about updating drivers on the Thinkpad:
1) Try first Windows Update and update all the drivers and Patches
2) Try Lenovo System Update to get any new/missing drivers.
3) Try to install Lenovo Settings and Lenovo Companion from the Windows App Store, Lenovo Companion also has a "update driver search"
4) Sometimes all that software does not recognize some updated / missing driver. Check Lenovo's Support Site and search for your specific model drivers.
I know that this is "trial and error", but I think that updating the drivers may help with this issue.

My g510s screen keeps blinking on and off really fast. I don't know what the problem is. I've looked up other threads about laptop screen flickering but it seems that their laptops don't completely blink off. I might be wrong. I tried resetting my laptop already so i think it's probably a problem internally. Is there any advice you guys can offer me about the problem i'm having.

Hello, I could not find any fix for my problem so I'm relying on your help. Lenovo G710 does not load, in a few seconds after start it just sits on black screen with blinking cursor.I tried:1) chkdsk - no errors, chkdsk /r - error, something about write only2) unplugging/plugging USB devices and starting again3) cheked boot sequence,  Boot mode:legacy support, Boot priority UEFI first.  EFI list shows nothing, legacy list starts with HDD. I Tried different variations with no success4) Used bootable usb with recovery tools:     - can't restore windows point - gives error at the end for all points    -  explorer shows that all partitions and files  are fine, meaning that HDD is alive    - tried other different restoration tools most of them either did not work or gave an error Any idea except wipe and re-install ? Thanks for you help!

Hi, I have a y50-70 that has been working pretty smoothly for the last two years. I am studying abroad in Italy and was told that my charger should have a built in power adapter, however when plugging into the outlet via an outlet adapter it immediately made a popping sound and started smoking. The charger was a replacement which had been working fine for about a year in the states, but I just assumed that this one didn't have the built in adapter and I drew too much power and fried it. I ordered a new charger specified for my model from amazon Italy (with European plugs) in hopes that it would work....but no luck, and he charger is making a consistent soft hissing sound when plugged in. I am also getting a blinking orange battery light when plugged into the charger, but this is the only form of response I'm getting from my computer.  After reading around my best bet is that I've blown a fuse or fried the battery but I wanted to see if anyone had a more confident diagnosis before I go shooting in the dark. Any thoughts?  Thanks,sam

Hey Community, I'm in dire need for help, my lenovo Y50-70 has been working fine for the past 3 years now and JUST after the warrenty is up, my battery becomes funky. I noticed that whenever I load up a game, the charger becomes unrecognized and instead of regular led lights, i get one blinking white light and one blinking orange light. When I remove the AC adapter and plug it back in, it'll recognize the charger and ocasionally it'll take some time to recognize it. It stops charging when the LED lights begin to blink. I've tried to1. "remove the static" or drain the battery by unplugging the AC adapter2. holding down the power button for 30 seconds (I didnt remove the battery because it's not a removable battery, Should I?).3. Changed the power settings to high performance and no conservation of power.4. I bought a new adapter and it's still happening, I have no idea what to do. Intially prior of buying a new adapter it drained and I couldnt figure out a way to get it to charge. With the new adapter I was able to charge it till full, but when I have it on, it does the same thing.  Please help me community, you kind souls. Best,Richard

Hi, I bought my Ideapad Y700 in December 2015, so it's half year old. Warranty is 2 years after entering S/N on Lenovo website. Please only reply to this if you are form Lenovo support. Question: Will opening back lid of the laptop to check for connection between screen and rest of the laptop void my warranty ? I suspect it's a cable that got lose, but I would like to be sure if it's worth even checking. Is it ok to open screws to have a look inside or will that void my warranty ? Additional information: Screen blinks even when booting, before operating system and also in BIOS. So it really looks like hardware problem.

Hello folks, 
This is my first post.  I've been a long fan of BleepingComputer.com but I have never needed to ever post something because the wealth of information here was able to help me resolve most problems.  That is, until now.  I have been fixing computers for years and I don't remember to have ever been in a position where I have exhausted all options and have surrendered to the reality that it may be the motherboard.  But, despite my experience, I know I'm a novice at this game so that's why I'm turning to the people here.
I have a Lenovo ThinkCentre M58 7244 Desktop.  This is not mine, but a friends.  The problem is as follows: When the computer boots up, there is a splash screen which says the "system is starting" and to interrupt the startup, I can hit enter.  If I hit enter, screen disappears and I'm brought to a black screen with the cursor blinking on the top left corner.  Clearly the issue is startup related so all I'm thinking about is trying to fix the MBR or even considering flashing the BIOS.  So, I attempt to get into the BIOS.  Since hitting enter brought me nowhere, I decided to use other common hot keys.  Hitting F1, F2, Delete, F8, F12 from the splash screen take me nowhere except to the blinking cursor.  I hit ESC and viola! Another screen that displays lots of text as well as memory information, which is all accurate. 
This screen also gives me two additional o... Read more

Hello, and Welcome,
Have you replaced the CMOS battery with a new one? PXE errors can be due to a bad hard drive or bad CMOS battery. I would also powercycle the computer if you have not tried it yet. Pull the power cord. Hold the power button down for 30 seconds, Replace the power cord and boot.
Depending on how many RAM modules you have, start with one and try to boot. Change slots. If that does not help, replace with the other module if there is more than one and try both slots booting between each changed location.
I would also reseat any hard drive cables at the hard drive and motherboard. When booting, can you hear the hard drive spin up when the side panel is removed? Good Luck

My Yoga 3 Pro won't wake up from sleep / hibernation, the only sign of activity is the keyboard lights just blinking, AGAIN! :-(. This is a common problem with Yoga 2 13 models I have learnt, not only from various boards, but also my self, when I returned a yoga 2 13 after 5 days, and got the Yoga 3 Pro model. The laptop is now only 6 months old. I experienced the same wake up problems 3 weeks ago with my 3 Pro, and the shop here in Copenhagen sent it back to service. When I got it back 4 days ago, the service team had just changed "Cinch Audio" and updated the BIOS. It seems like they never really fixed the real problem. Two days ago the computer again had problems to wake up, and now it seems to be frozen in this blinking mode. I I have tried hard reboot (holding the power button for ca 20 secs), but it won't solve the problem. Has anyone experienced the same problem, and any durable solutions to it? If it stays like this, I'll hand it in, try to get it reimbursed and I will gladly buy another computer, but not from Lenovo anymore.

I just put windows 7 on my second computer. Its kind of low end by todays standards. AMD Athalon 64 4000+, Nvidia 7900 GT, 2 gigs of DDR400 memory. I think the video card is a little lite side. Every so often when a video is playing the screen artifacts. 100% of the time when I start a game the screen artifacts. I tried updating drivers to the latest ones. When I do that the screen artifacts as soon as windows boots. If I leave the drivers as is when windows does its automatic update for them I am ok, but still no games and 50% on video. I lent a friend of mine an extra 8800 gt card I took out of my main computer when i upgraded it to newer hardware. I am going to get it back tonight and see if this solves my problems. Any ideas/help would be great.

A:Win 7 and Nividia 7900 GT

Usually screens artifact because of bad overclocks. If you're overclocking reset back to stock speeds. Otherwise you might try even downclocking your card.

Hi guys,

I have a Thinkpad r61i running windows 7 64-bit, and all was merry until it decided to run some updates while it was running on battery. Short story, the battery died during the installation and now when I boot it just goes to the black screen with the blinking cursor.

I removed all peripherals, tried to boot from DVD all with no such luck. I really don't care about the files on the dive at this point and am more than happy to reformat and start anew. If the hdd is bad I have a known good one from an old Mac mini.

Barring any suggestions that I haven't tried, how can I go about installing a new copy of windows successfully on either of the drives. I have a Mac mini, the laptop in question and an older dell dimension ( i think dimension 2350desktop running XP.

I'm thinking if somehow I can connect one of these drives to my dell desktop and format/install windows that way...am I totally off there? If that is a workable solution, how do you connect a laptop hdd to a desktop? When I tried using it as an external, it said I couldn't install windows via USB or FireWire. Is a sata to IDE cable what I need to accomplish this?

Again, unable to boot from disks in the current state.

Thanks in advance for all the help.

A:Laptop turned off during SP update now blinking cursor on boot.

You may plug any laptop Sata hard drive to a desktop . If you have a SATA DVD player just unplug that and plug in the laptop hard drive using the cables off the DVD .

I can't see any other monitor on my device manger other than generic pnp monitor, doesn't another monitor should be displayed for the nividia GForce GT 525m card,

only in the display adapters the nividia appears , how is that possible and does it mean that the nividia card has a problem or what?, because I can't make any use of the nividia card as if it isn't there ,and I can't enable the 3d vision.

my laptop is inspiron n5110 i5 and I installed the drivers for nividia

A:Nividia Gforce Gt 525m problem

I don't really understand your question.

The listings for the monitor and display adapter are separate in Device Manager. It's possible that there is no .inf file for the display.

I believe that the N5110 supports nVidia's Optimus feature:

Optimus Technology

I have no personal experience with it, but I believ that it requires that drivers for both the nVidia display adpater and the Intel onboard graphics be installed. (The Intel graphics are used for applications that don't need a lot of processing power, to extend the operating time when you're running on battery power.)

I thought it was just a custom script I added in, but ever since all my games will freeze between 1 second to 1 mintute of gameplay. I have belief that it is my drivers but I did install the latest ones for my card (GeForce4 Ti4200)
OS: Windows ME (4.90, Build 3000)
System Model: Compaq PC
BIOS: Compaq
Processor: AMD Athlon Processor, MMX, 3DNow 1.1GHz
Memory: 256MB RAM
DirectX Version 9.0a

I've tried older drivers and the newest ones and get the same results. I'd really appreciate some help.

I just finished Installing my GeForce FX 5200 card
Everything seems to work fine when BOTH cards are enabled, which means theyre working together.
I am able to play World of Warcraft with much better graphics now that I have my new card.
But I heard the cards arent supposed to be working together, so I had to uninstall or disable my Integrated Card. Well I tried it, and when I turn on my computer I get a black screen, and no mouse, but when I move it left to right a little, It seems to come from a very far off side as if I have a Second screen, BUT i dont even have a second monitor.

So then, I had to plug my monitor back onto the original slot(not GF slot), and now Im able to see my windows account logon screen....very pixelated, and discolored.
Now I log in, and I go to my display settings and GeForce is at good color setting, and the correct resolution, but I dont see it! I also had an option to go to the OTHER monitor, and before I did I thought, "Hmm maybe the other Monitor will look normal.", so when I got to the 2nd, Everything still looked ugly.. and the settings were also the same!!

My GeForce XF 5200 card is working, I get to see the control panel, and the Desktop Manager, Its adding graphics to "WoW"..I get to change color settings.

Now whats wrong here?? GeForce should be giving me the correct display and colors, but its not!

Then If I re-install and/or enable my Integrated Card, and fix my color settings, everything goes back to nor... Read more

A:installed Nividia force 5500

Can you use the keyboard? CTRL ESC is the keyboard command for the start menu, and you can navigate using the arrow keys. Navigate your way to Control Panel > System > Hardware > Device Manager Use TAB to highlight buttons and tabs and ENTER to select. Expand the display adapter tree. If there is a device there that is not your geForce 5500, uninstall it and reboot. You can get to shut down from the start menu.

so today i was called by an unknown caller which that's what the caller id was anyway it was an Indian help line or something but they told me i have a rather large amount of errors in the event viewer and i saw that most of them are warnings from nividia that follow as such: The NIVIDIA OpenGL has encountered an out of memory error. this application may behave inconsistently and fail. Eventid:2

i'd like to figure out what this may be also at the bottom of list there are a laundry list of random errors and critical errors which are about not shutting down properly a long with other things

A:a lot of nividia warnings in the event viewer

It's called a scam. Do not allow them access to your computer or pay them anything. Hang up on them

does window 7 support nividia 8500?

i installed window 7 earlier and installed the driver for my graphic card and it doesnt not detect it.

im just trying to make sure it will work.


A:does window 7 support nividia 8500?

ay7191, welcome to the forums.

To answer your question yes,

Latest NVIDIA ForceWare Video Drivers Windows 7

though it isn't Windows that supports the card, it is the card and its drivers that support Windows 7.

As to why it wasn't being detected, that could have been down to a missing or incomplete chipset driver (also known as motherboard drivers).

So i have this new PC that i have built its fine and all when runing a single graphics card but if i turn on sli i cant seem to play games some games i can play for a while but it fails and black-screens(it says graphics card driver stopped working and have recovered) in the middle but with high demanding games i just get a black-screen immediately when i get in a game(not menu screen but actual game) i start example: Battlefield 3

I am running windows professional
2X Asus GTX 780s
Psu :cooler master silent pro gold 1000w

it also seems that this happens allot more when i overclock now all of this seems like a psu problem to me but before purchasing a new psu i wanted to make sure if my psu is actually faulty or not

Any help will be very appreciated
let me know if you need more info

A:nividia driver stops working(blackscreens)

Remove all OCing and test.

As for the power supply, the only real test is to swap it out and test.

Cooler Master is not on my recommended list, and I don't know the quality of that model.
