Very likely NVIDIA has a newer driver for the 2000M than lenovo offers. I updated my lenovo w520 quadro 1000M driver from nvidia and suffered no ill effects

Hi Jeff, Do you still have problems in version 45 with HWA enabled? If you do still see problems, is it better with (in this order) 1. current beta version from http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/thunderbird/channel/ ? 2. latest NVIDIA driver (latest drivers are dated Dec 14, 2016) ?
Jeff indicates he is no longer using Thunderbird
