    Lenovo Y700 nvidia problems, pink screen of death

    Status: UNRESOLVED
    Computer Type: Lenovo Y700 laptop
    GPU: GTX 960M, 4GB
    CPU: Intel Core i5 6300HQ
    Motherboard: Lenovo Allsparks 5A (U3E1)
    RAM: 1x8GB DDR4-2132
    PSU: Provide the model and its rated wattage and current output if possible, e.g. EVGA 850 BQ, 850W, 70amps on the 12v rail - for laptops you can leave this blank
    Operating System & Version: Windows 10 build 1607 64bit, clean install
    GPU Drivers: 378.92, clean install after DDU
    Description of Problem: Hello, I have bought this laptop 6 months ago. Never had any problems with GPU or anything else. My PC has 120gb SSD and 1TB hdd from wdc. [Donít know if itís relevant, but I got bored of my hdd spin down and spin up sounds (it had 20s spin down time), so I tried various ways to change that. And after booting to live linux cd I have successufully managed to change that to 300s.].

    And I think problems began from there. I usually play dota2 when I have some free time. Some games went smooth, but some had like 10fps or less (usually I had around 70 on max graphics). So, I started to search for a problem. Which brought me to device manager, where I saw yellow mark near GTX 960M gpu, it reported error 43. I immediately blocked all gpu driver installations, even from windows update, and installed the latest one from Lenovo. Still problem persisted.

    Donít remember how, but I also had pink screen of death (thought it should be blue). (attached the picture from whocrashed).

    Decided to do a clean driver uninstall from safe mode, but that did not help. Finally, I thought that I should update to latest drivers provided from nvidia. Did that, had no problems for a few days. I was constantly checking in device manager for yellow exclamation mark, but there seemed to be none.

    And today I left my laptop charging on the table, (donít know if itís relevant) with 30 minutes default sleep time. Came back only to see a screen of death.

    Troubleshooting: I have tried reinstalling all the gpu drivers, reinstalled chipset and integrated gpu drivers. I am also on the latest bios version (NW53).

    I still have warranty for this laptop. But itís currently middle of semester and I have lots of work to do, so I donít want to take it to a repair and wait for months.

    I have also tried running furmark, it got with no crashes. I tried to run furmark and prime95 simultaneously, but it coped with it.

    I donít know what problem could be and I need your help finding it. I have provided as many screenshots as I have gathered. Link:

    Please, if you need any more information, I will gladly provide it.


    I have reinstalled my windows. After installing all updates through windows update it prompted me to do a restart. Restarted it and error code 43 occured again:

    Also, while I had old windows, I ran hardware scan through Lenovo solution center:
    1. First test was running without error code 43 intact. I have attached the results
    2. Second test was running while error code 43 were present. The results were that the scan is not applicable to nvidia card.

    Later on, I had updated these drivers:

    -Audio drivers
    -LAN driver
    -The latest chipset drivers. Although I had problems updating chipset one, and had to use cmd and -overall attribute to force update it (from to

    Okay guys, I have to bump this thread. Everything was fine and normal after I cleanly updated to windows 10 creators update. As I found out, everything was good, because I were not playing any games. Now two days in a row I had bsod's:
    1) After playing dota2, my fans were very loud. Even after an hour passed, fans were still very loud, I have decided to put my laptop to sleep, and then wake it up. As soon as I woke it, I got bsod. Minidump file with ending

    2) I have played several matches, went to watch uefa and left my pc up and running. So it went to sleep mode. After I came back and moved my mouse, it tried to wakeup unsuccessfully. Minidump file with ending

    One thing worth mentioning, I ussualy turn my laptop completely, if not plan to do anything. I cold booted pc, launched dota, found out that graphics were really low and fps was not that good. I immeadetely knew what happened: went to device manager, yellow exclamation mark were present near nvidi gtx 960m, It stated error code 43.

    I am on the latest chipset ( and nvidia ( drivers.
