W700 regular BSODs.

#1 Post by Thinkpad4by3 » Sat Jul 22, 2017 8:04 pm

My W700 gets BSODs on a regular basis. Usually occurs every 4-5 hours.

Specs:
Q9000 C2Q
nVIDIA Quadro 3700M
WUXGA Awesome LCD.
4GB RAM
W7 Ultimate

Is this the nVIDIA can't make reliable parts to save their soul problem like the T61p had or something totally different?

The efficiency of two screens equally sized with equal numbers if pixels are equal. The time spent by a 4:3 user complaining about 16:9 is proportional to the inefficiency working with a 16:9 display, therefore the amount of useful work extracted is equal.

Do you get a screen blankout shortly before a BSOD? I had BSOD issues with my ThinkPad W701 but I found it was due to an issue with Firefox (does it happen with web browsing or similar?) and disabling hardware acceleration in Firefox stopped the blankouts/BSODing

I use chrome on that machine.

It happens when going into suspend or when the machine get significantly slower and then it BSODs.

Try a PaleMoon and Firemin combo, they use minimal RAM.
