Re: Thinkpad P50 graphics 188.8.131.5229 (2017/09/05) crash when wake up from sleep
10-19-2017 11:28 AM
The recent Fall Creator Update from Microsoft has reenforced the OS to install the latest Intel Graphics driver. This results in the sleeping/wakeup issue due to the buggy Intel graphics driver. I cannot even roll back because all previous drivers have been removed from the update.
So, people who want to do the FCU update, please be aware of this issue. Or, Lenovo stuff should let us know how they have tested P50 is compatible with the FCU update. I am waiting for a permanent solution.
Plus a bunch of posts here talk about Hibernate/Sleep issues after latest Windows updates that point to Intel Graphics driver as the culprit.
Do you have a different opinion?
At first check out
Then try older drivers from this list Downloads for Intel® HD Graphics 530
Select OS from right pulldown menu. Hit show more.
If you encounter an error message about validation, then install driver via "have disk method" as described at:
(ignore prolog about MS surface)
Saw the post - Default level information for reporting Graphics issues.

Hi nkaufman: Thank you very much for contacting the Intel® Graphics communities and for providing those reports. We will do our best to assist you with this scenario.
In regard to your inquiry, we always recommend to install the drivers provided by the manufacturer of the laptop, in this case Lenovo, since those drivers were customized by them to work with your specific platform. I looked on their web site and for some reason there are no Intel graphics drivers available:
Since you already installed the latest graphics drivers and the problem remains, we will do further research on this matter, as soon as I get any updates I will post all the details on this thread.
Any further questions, please let me know.
nkaufman: You are very welcome. Yes, I just received an update on this matter, could you please provide the current Power Settings options? This is just to confirm if they are configured properly.
Additionally, this could be an issue caused by the OS update in conflict with an application or service installed by the laptop manufacturer.
Has this issue been reported to Lenovo? Has Lenovo been able to reproduce the issue using the exact same hardware?
Any questions, please let me know.
Power Settings of laptop - Sleep, Hibernate, Shut down and Restart.
Power Management tab of driver - I have everything unchecked, not allowing device to turn off or wake the machine.
Is that what you're looking for? Please let me know.
Since it took a while for your response and I was getting frustrated with this issue, I went ahead and removed all graphics drivers (Intel and Nvidia) from the laptop, every single one till I was left with Microsoft Graphics Adapter.
Then I installed an older version of Nvidia and Intel graphics driver that used to work (Lenovo supplied drivers)
Nvidia - 220.127.116.1105
Intel HD530 - 18.104.22.16850
The problem still existed. Then while looking at some events in the event log, I thought of Wireless drivers,
Went back to an older Intel wireless drivers for AC-8260 - 22.214.171.124 (again Lenovo supplied package, am so thankful that I have the past several versions of drivers).
For some reason the above driver displays as a Microsoft driver.
But the Hibernate issue is GONE!!!!!!
Have not tried to update graphics drivers to see if the issue was due to network drivers. But Intel seriously needs to look at all its drivers, too many issues are being raised with Windows updates.
Would still like to know what is causing this to enable me to update my machine with latest updates since I have only a work around and NOT A SOLUTION.
Please let me know if you need additional information.
The less said about Lenovo, the better. On their forum, they suggested that people revert to N-1, N-2 or N-3 drivers.
Hi nkaufman: Thank you very much for sharing that information. It is great to hear that you found a work around for this scenario. We will do further research on this matter, as soon as I get any information I will post it on this thread.
Any questions, please let me know.
