Lenovo Y530 - BSOD when booting from USB

Q: Lenovo Y530 - BSOD when booting from USB

Hi, I've recently bought brand new Lenovo Y530 with 512gb SSD and 512gb M2.SSD disks without the Operating system.I've prepared the USB with a windows image using Windows usb tool, disabled the fast boot, disabled secure boot, boot is set to the UEFI, I can see my USB in the EFI section of the BIOS and then once I start the laptop it goes directly to the BSOD (image included) I never get the chance to get into windows installation. Once again, the system is clean, there was no OS installed on it before. If I remove the USB and start the laptop then It waits on the black screen. Does anyone have any idea what might be wrong? I've also tried with different USB and it's the same result. Thanks!

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi,I have a huge problem with my laptop Lenovo Y530 Legion: Y530 i7-8750H 15.6" / 16GB DDR4 / OS 256GB SSD M.2 PCIe + 1TB HDD / GTX1050 / Win10P.I cannot un-sleep my laptop. After un-sleeping I have always a BSOD with one of these errors: memory management, kernel in page error, `critical process died` and maybe more because BSOD disappears very quickly so I can never be sure if I've missed something.The laptop has up-to-date drivers. I updated it using driver booster 6 and Lenovo vantage. Windows 10 Professional is up-to-date too.I tried:* disabled/enabled intel virtualization on bios options* I updated my bios (I have up-to-date bios)* My drivers are up-to-date (nothing helps)* I used Lenovo diagnostic tools and each report finished with success* I used the memtest (test was OK)* I checked my hard drive (test OK; smart OK)* I tried sleep/un-sleep on battery mode and power mode - the same situation*enabled/disabled fast bootI'm also attaching a few minidumps and log events. Maybe these files can help. You can find them here: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/ddua7d7qahie81y/AACZn5-VJBdtQwcqyg-eIqOTa?dl=0I have this problem from the beginning. Could you help me? It is really annoying ;/

Hello, On the lenovo website (in germany) there are several versions of the y530 to choose from. Of the last two one costs 1399 euro, while the other 1599. The only difference being that the latter has windows 10 installed, and the one for 1399 euro only has FreeDOS. Why a 200 euro difference only for windows 10? Is upgrading the y530 from FreeDOS to Windows 10 very difficult, or whats the issue here? Thanks in advance

Hi, I have a Lenovo Y530 running Vista 64 and on battery power it goes into screen saver every 3 min. I have changed the screen saver settings. I have gone into the power settings and changed the time the display turns off. Checked all the power settings. Can not figure out why the screen goes black after 3 min. Touching the mouse it wakes up right away. Is there a problem with this computer or is there some setting I am missing? Jeff

Last week i scanned my new lenovo y530 using lenovo vantage due to a slow start up and during the HDD scan  the SMART short self test wont complete and gets stuck at 10% even after leaving it overnight , how to fix this , should i be worried about it?

A:CANT COMPLETE HARDWARE SCAN ON MY LENOVO Y530

I don't think you should be worried that much about it. If your device is slowly booting try turning off some startup apps and clean up your disk since the more you store on it the more time is required for it to boot from the HDD. You can also test with Windows's Error checking on the drive if there are file system errors. And you can run Disk Defragment to speed up your device a bit. Check to see if you can hear any unusual clicking noises coming from the drive. Hope this helpsCheers

Hello everyone.I was wanting to play some game on my Lenovo when the screen froze. I manually shutdown my computer and ride to turn it back on. I got stuck on the automatic repair failed error message. So I searched for a lot of solutions which didn?t work so I decided to réinitialise windows because it has only been two weeks since I got it so it?s not a big deal. When it was done that?s when the problem started. When I press the power button, it displays the legion logo and i hear the fans and the keyboard LED?s light up but then it shutsdown and does the same loop ove and over again. I don?t know what to do.

So I have a Lenovi Legion Y530, I bought this very recently. Specs: i7 8750H, Gtx 1050Ti, 16 Gigs of Ram, 128Gb SSD, 1Tb HD. So I decided to overclock my gpu (with Msi Afterburner) I increased the GPU clock by 350mhz, and the memory clock by 150mhz. I also undervolted the cpu by -0.140 volts. (I'm pretty sure this is the gpu's problem). I tried running Time Spy in 3DMark. This worked before I overclocked. While the benchmark was loading, it froze on the loading screen. Everything else worked, but I couldn't exit. It was just stuck on the screen. I couldnt enter task manager, or go to the desktop. My only option was to force shutdown. When I turned it on the Legion logo popped up and had the loading icon. Then it disappeared and nothing's loads after it, it stays as a black screen. Keep in mind that I don't have the tools to access the internals of the laptop. So I need a way to fix it someway else. Thanks in advance.

Hi,

Please help. Thanks for your answers.

Windows 7 has installed a generic driver for the card. You need to go the cards manufacturers site and download the correct driver for windows 7. Then unistall the card in Device Manager and then install the new driver.

Hello, I have had the following happen to 2 different Lenovo Legion Y530 laptops in the last week.For the first laptop it was accidentally allowed to run down to zero.For the second laptop it was intentially run down to zero to try to recreate this problem.  Unfortunately it succeeded.Here are the steps:Laptop runs down to zero and shuts off.  When plugged in, on power on, states laptop was not powered down normally and then brings up Recovery screen (blue screen).  Claims missing or errors in iaStorAC.sys.  The first laptop problem claimed HAL.dll was missing or corrupt.From the blue screen, most options lead back to this recovery screen.  Only the BIOS options goes elsewhere. From the novo button, I've tried:- System Recovery - appears to work but returns to Recovery screen.- Restore from Restore point (after booting from USB) - claims it works (after some hd repair) and then returns to Recovery screen.- From command line, repairing the boot config data (ran into permission errors on some commands) - no success. I called Lenovo support and after verifying that the harddrive was still recognized by the bios, had me attempt System Recovery from the novo menu.  When that failed, claimed it was a hardware issue and needed to be sent in for repair.  Seems unlikely it would be the same hardware problem on 2 separate laptops.  It seems related to the power down corrupting the boot files. From the recent reviews at Bestbuy...

I've had my laptop for less than 2 months, but recently I got stuck in an auto-repair loop (possibly a virus), so I took my laptop to my university's tech center. Once there they wiped my laptop clean and installed a fresh install of Windows 10. A couple of my drivers got deleted like my mouse and wifi drivers, but they re-installed them there as well. Everything was fine just a little slow, I re-installed all my apps/games back. I never really checked for Windows 10 updates until a couple days ago because I randomly got this error when trying to play my games. It would say something like this: "ERROR: your video card does not support alpha blending with floating point render targets (D3DFMT_A16B16G16R16F)". I have a GTX 1050 ti, so I was really confused. I looked up how to fix it on other forums and even Reddit. Apparently, this happens when your laptop tries using the GPU built into the motherboard instead of the actual graphics card. Many suggested uninstalling the current GPU drivers and re-installing them. So that's exactly what I tried, but now whenever I try to express install the newest driver on Geforce Experience; it says "The Standard NVIDIA graphics driver is not compatible with this version of Windows. Please update your driver using...(website)". The website it gives is not even available, so I look up and manually try to download/install the driver myself, but it gives me the same message it did on Geforce Experience. So I finally decide to update Win... Read more

I recently purchased a new Y530-15ICH from the Lenovo site and came up with the following Windows BSOD issue after installing an SSD upgrade:  Stop code: SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLEDWhat failed: iaStorAVC.sys Further details on the issue: this is caused by waking up the laptop after either putting the system to sleep and/or hibernate by closing it or by manually choosing the sleep/hibernate option from the Windows power menu.  Original HDD included: generic 1 TB 7200 rpm HDUpgraded SSD drives with the issue: Samsung Evo 860 500 GB and Kingston HyperX 240 GB (I have installed both and both are causing the same issue) I have downloaded and installed every updated and recommended drivers from the Lenovo/Samsung/Kingston official product sites and I have even updated the BIOS for the Y530 (also from the Lenovo official site). This issue happens every time I wake the computer up, no exception.  I can post additional information. I already spoke to the service contact phone with no luck - they are requesting me to send the computer to repairs but I wanted to try a different solution if available first. I have tried almost everything - Lenovo diagnostics, formatting both drives and reinstalling Windows, etc.  Has anyone had the same problem and solved it successfully? Is this hardware related?

2. Once in the BIOS, set the following settings (if applicable) to boot from a Linux installation disc.
 
Security Tab:
Secure Boot = Disabled
 
Boot Tab:
Boot Mode = Legacy
Boot Priority = Legacy First

So, I have a Lenovo Thinkpad Z61T 9660CTO which I bought in 2007. It has served me well. Yesterday, it was working perfectly, albeit with some exxtra high heating at the bottom, close to 60-70 degrees Celcius. Then , I wanted to put in a new SSD into it. So, I took out the old HDD and then connected it, and the other SSD via USB casing to another computer running a disk cloning software. Tried it did not work. Now, I put back the old HDD into the Thinkpad, it does not start up again at all. Even the first screen which says "Thinkpad" press Blue button for recovery" does not come up now. Hard drive is not it, since the screen does not switch on at ALL. If it was HDD failure, it would say something like HDD not detected. But in this case, it does not even show the initial Thinkpad screen. So, this may be a loose connection somewhere (even though I did not remove the casing at all while removing the HDD) Both times, I removed and reattached the HDD, with the power cable removed from the Thinkpad, but, the battery was still inside the chassis. Short circuit? Bad! Someone help.
