[German]Does Windows 11 on Lenovo Thinkpad L950 models cause BlueScreens on battery power? I have a corresponding report from a reader and would like to post it again in the blog. Perhaps there are similar observations from other users.
Lenovo Thinkpad L590
The Lenovo Thinkpad L590 is a business notebook whose production has been discontinued in the meantime. The notebook comes with 8th generation Intel® Core™ i7 with vPro™, and shipped with Windows 10 Pro.
BlueScreens in battery mode
German blog reader Dima had written in my German blog a comment with a complain about increased bluescreens on Lenovo notebooks (Thinkpad L590) and Windows 11 (22H1). Her wrote (translated):
We have difficulties with the first Windows 11 installation with the Lenovo L590 model.
Error pattern: Blue screen in battery mode after 20 minutes at the latest. Occurs already when opening a browser or sometimes also in the login screen. You don't notice the problem when the power supply is connected.
The BSODs WHEA UNCORRECTABLE ERROR and UNEXPECTED_STORE_EXCEPTION are reported. The error WHEA UNCORRECTABLE ERROR indicates hardware problems or conflicts with drivers. UNEXPECTED_STORE_EXCEPTION could be caused by drivers and software. However, the user states that he tested a clean installation.
Installation with a fresh ISO in battery mode also leads to a blue screen (already during the installation; if it runs successfully, the error image follows after the installation).
If the "power supply" service is deactivated, the problem no longer occurs. However, this leads to side effects (fan control doesn't run, Windows doesn't restart correctly when testing the NB).
Driver/firmware updates or not – no solution found yet.
It looks like the device is not compatible with Windows 11. The question remains if there are still users with this combination who observe the same error pattern. I didn't find anything during a web search.
