    I bought my Lenovo T450s in September 2015 and installed Win7 64 Pro at that time. For a few months now, I would sometimes get an error when using it unplugged (on battery power) where the screen will go black for a moment, and then an error message will come up along the lines of "Display Driver for Windows 7 has stopped responding and has successfully recovered". This was a bit annoying, especially since it often led to browser windows crashing and then requiring restart.

    Yesterday I installed a fresh copy of Win10 64 Pro. However, the error message still occurs! This makes me wonder whether it's a hardware issue. Is this a known problem with my model of laptop? Should I contact warranty services? Would love some feedback on this.

    Try updating to latest Intel driver and if there is any dGPU install their drivers from official site of AMD or Nvidia.
