Do you use any GPU like NVIDIA ou AMD Radeon? If so, which drivers are you using at the moment? the proprietary ones or the free ones?

How often it freezes? Is your thinkpad's memory full?

My guess is that such problems can occur when graphics support is insufficient or the driver does not work well. It is necessary to check whether the currently set driver is operating normally. In order to support the graphic system status, the w540 should install the nvidia driver related program.
