Ideapad 520S-14IKB freezes, unclickable, stucks randomly

May 9, 2018 2:13AM PDT

I have issue with new 520S-14IKB. I bought it 5 days ago.

Installed Windows 10 and updated to latest version. Installed all drivers from Lenovo support site.

Laptop freezes randomly few times a day. I can't get patternt, because it sometimes crashes while watch youtube, sometimes when swithcing windows, sometimes just by using some text editor.

It just stucks, I can't click anywhere, cant switch windows with alt+tab, can't open task manager. I can move mouse and that is it.
No any message, no "not responding" message.

When I put it on sleep by pressing power button, and turn it on again it runs normally, as nothing happened.
It is becoming really annoying because I can't find out what causes the problem.

I tried everything I could find on web, also installing intel graphic driver from Intel site manually, turning off Link state power management for PCI express which I found on internet as solutions for windows 10 crashing.

I am getting really desperate about this and thinking about returning laptop to my seller back.

Can anybody help please?
Thanks in advance.
Kind regards
