R61 driver issues/ blue screen

November 30Hits:0
Advertisement
Hello all: 
I have a 2008 R61 (7733) Serial (L3-G5721). I got this computer through my college at the time, and over a 2 year span I had 4 or 5 HDD replaced through the Lenovo service program on campus. Now I recently replaced my HDD 2 times so far since leaving my school in 2010, none were for bad HDD's like previously. I had Issues with Lenovo/Windows drivers. Now on my 3rd an WD black. What I would like to know is my HDD or Motherboard is having driver issues?!? How can I fix this?!? Is their a program that can diagnose what driver is causing my blue screens and also keeping me from booting up the laptop past the extended boot screen?!? Love that laptop so much runs like a tank besides the HDD problem it's very solid any help is appriciated. 
Sincerely:
Christopher Patti

 Hi,
Do not rely solely on System Update to maintain your computer. It frequently is weeks, months and even years out of date. Some updates never get to System Update at all. In addition, the driver matrix does not contain all patches and updates.  Because you don’t have a preload, it is possible that you are missing some critical updates, which may not be in the Driver Matrix, and I am not sure if they are available using System Update. I suggest that you verify if the following updates are installed on your computer.

There might be others, but these come to mind first.
Here are some examples of System Update being out of date:
Update Retriever and System Update contain drivers for System Migration Assistant 6.0, at version 6.00.0009, while the Driver Matrix and Drivers and Software pages indicate the current version at 6.0.010 (released on Nov 23, 2009).
Enabling Wake on LAN from Standby for ENERGY STAR Version 4.0 for Windows 8 (32-bit, 64-bit), 7 (32-bit, 64-bit), Vista (32-bit, 64-bit), XP (32-bit, 64-bit) - ThinkPad
-  See document: http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/downloads/detail.p​age?DocID=DS013949
-  Update Retriever and System Update contain drivers for Enabling Wake on LAN from Standby for ENERGY STAR Version 4.0, for version 1.06, while the Driver Matrix and Drivers and Softwarepages indicate the current version at 1.07 (originally released on Feb 15, 2011).
I even tried submitting site feedback, rather than opening a dialog using the Lenovo Forums to get some of these problems fixed. The astonishing response I got back from the Lenovo Web Content Team was:
Dear Valued Customer,
Thank you for your feedback. We have checked the link that you have provided. Yes, the current version is the one in the document, however since we haven't received the latest xml file for the driver, that is why in TVSU contains the previous driver update. In the meantime, please download manually. We will update TVSU with the latest package as soon as we receive it.
Thank you for contacting the Lenovo Web Content Team. http://support.lenovo.com
Case Number – 00224092
Do some research and see if this helps. Good luck.
