My girlfriend's L520 keep getting a deadlock once every few hours. The laptop hangs, nothings responds, the image stays on and the cursor can't move, so I have to hard reboot it.
I think the HDD is out of the equation, as it has been replaced by a Kingston SSD. My next guess would be a driver problem, or the memory.
It is running on Windows 10.
Anyone else experienced this kind of behaviour on a Thinkpad before ?
Did you try running the laptop in something other than Windows 10 like in the UEFI/BIOS for an extended period of time to see if it locks there?
Did you run a memory test with memtestx86+?

If so, downgrade again to 2nd Gen (like i5-2430M).
Otherwise I'd blame Micro$haft and its forced-down-your-throat W10.
Download and try a live-Linux CD.
E.g. Zorin is quite close in looks to Windows and might be a W10 replacement! https://sourceforge.net/projects/zorin- ... p_redirect
If all else fails, go back to W7.
