    Lenovo Yoga 500-15IBD Freezes Randomly after SSD Upgrade


    Hi,
    I recently upgraded my Lenovo Yoga 15-IBD to an SSD, with a complete reinstall of Windows. Everything was working great; boot times were quicker and the system was far more responsive. However, the computer randomly freezes now, without any warning. I have to do a hard reset. Reliability monitor gives no clues of what the problem might be. The SSD is brand new, and passed a 'long' test this morning.

    I have no idea where to go next; I seems that there is one problem after another with this laptop!

    Thanks for your help!

    Hi soopg.

    When it freezes is there anything being logged in the event viewer? (System / Application / Other)

    Have you looked at your Storage drivers. Before attempting to update please ensure you have an Image you can fall back to if required. While investigating would also be a good idea to have data backed up. You said this was a clean install so you likely have that point covered.

    If you don't have a tool you could check out Macrium Reflect. Free, reliable and tutorial with forum.

    You may wish to check out the Driver Verify process.

    This tutorial will guide you through the verification process, heed the warnings. Assuming it fails follow the posting instruction in the BSOD section of forum.

    Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable in Windows 10

    The tutorial states make a restore point. Seems to be a lot of people having issues using restore points hence have an Image.

    Hi Ken,

    Thanks so much for your reply! I have just created a disk image (using Macrium Reflect) and Driver Verifier is now running. I will see what comes of that!

    Thanks

    Hi there,

    Driver Verifier has been running for a few hours over the last couple of days; no problems yet, however, the issue itself is incredibly intermittent.

    I'll keep you posted if anything else happens!
