Lenovo P/Y/Z Series :: Y510P / Goes On Battery By Itself After Seconds Playing
Apr 22, 2014
I just bought a new Y510p and added the second gpu the day after I received the package. Was working alright until I tried playing BF3 and Crysis 3. Every time I try to play, the laptop goes on battery by itself even when is plugged-in. Then after the game starts to lag, I need to quit the game and disconnect and re-connect the cable for it to recognize that is plugged-in. Don't know if it has something to do with my power plan (high performance, optimized battery health) or what.
After 60 seconds of inactivity, a video showing the new features of the lenovo y-series pops up. the only time it doesn't do this is when I'm in a youtube video or a game. I've changed the sleep setting to 15 minutes, but nothing has changed yet... I am on windows 8.1, have the 755M SLI, and the i7 4700-MQ.
I bought a Lenovo Y510P 4 days ago. The laptop is amazing and i love it execpt for one proble,... while playing games i get a message about every 5 minutes saying that my ram is full and to exit out of the game
i have my virtual memory setting set to No page file for both of the things that i could change the setting to (there were only two different things in the virtual memory options which where Windows 8 and (lenovo)).
what should i set windows 8 and Lenovos virutal memory usage to? i thought i was suppost to select no page file but that has not worked.
i have 8gb of ram and while gaming 60 percent of it is being used so i know its not full
For 2 weeks or more now, my network is giving me lagspikes/disconnect when playing online games like League of Legends every time there is a bit more action on the map(ping goes to 900+).
Have windows 8.1..I am using Wi-Fi, here's a screenshot of my drivers.I dont have this problem in another city, where I'm studying(I insert cable there for connection(campus network)).Also here at home, my brother has the exact same computer and w8.1 and he doesnt have any connection issues.
I dont have torrents, antivirus updates or any of that going on while playing.We have maybe 4 computers and probably 1-2 phones using the net aswell, but that doesn't seem to be the case, as I said these problems should have occurred with my brother's computer aswell? Also when these devices are not in the house, I still suffer from lagspikes.
I bought my ideapad month ago and had some problems. It is gt 755m sli model.
While playing any game my screen goes weird(Picture bellow) and PC doesn't respond at all. Only way is hard restart. this problem shows only while gaming ad just a few times while watching videos on Youtube.
I tried taking SLi on and off. No difference just Fps drop while sli off but it still crashes.
Also I noticed that it doesn't crash so easily without power cable plugged in so maybe it´s something wrong with my settings.
I bought this laptop mainly for gaming so this problem gets really annoying.
I've had my Y510p (8GB RAM, DVD Ultrabay option) for a bit more than four months now and it's been working perfectly for most of the time- however, two days ago, while playing a game the computer or the game itself froze. After trying to bring the Task Manager up/kill the game, I decided to restart it- I turned it off, but once it came back on, it had decided to start "Preparing Automatic Repair". After several times unsuccessfully "repairing" (after which again "preparing") it (it had given me an error, something with Srttrail.txt file), I decided to look up and search the Internet for people with a similar/the same problem- none of the methods worked. So, I decided it could've been from software I've installed or similar- I didn't have things THAT important (I haven't made any back-ups, nor a recovery USB), so I made an initial state lenovo recovery using the Novo button.
After several more fixing methods (unsuccessfull again, people suggested getting into the command promt, using the chkdsk command, but it was in a drive called x:, couldn't find other drives/changing from UEFI to Legacy Support in BIOS settings, I changed them, then changed them back to defaults) it started giving me the "IPv4/IPv6 Network 0 (MAC Adress) boot failed" errors and several tries more, now it constantly gives me the "Windows boot Manager boot failed" error, followed by the IPv4/IPv6 ones. after which it takes me to a blank bright-blue screen with my only cursor visible (similar to what it does i I tell it to go to Lenovo recovery menu now). Also, after trying to turn it on (in the current/last state) it gave me the 0xc000000f error. So, what's happening (the HDD is recognized in the BIOS, the laptop itslef hasn't been moved more then four or five time and used properly)? I have no instalation/repair disc with the laptop.
My 2 day old Lenovo Y510P laptop has a problem with charging. I noticed the battery was never going above 60% charged. I left it plugged in for over 24 hours and nothing changed. So I decided to completely drain the battery and used the laptop until it died. With the laptop off I left it plugged in until the battery LED turned white which indicates the battery is fully charged. Unfortunately the battery still shows 60% charged.
I recently just received my Ideapad y510p laptop back, and I unplugged it and the battery dropped to 60% but when I try to charge my laptop, it'll just stay at 60%. The battery says its plugged in but it won't charge.
My friend and I both own Y510p laptops, but for some reason his battery will last an entire game of use and (very) light gaming, e.g. Binding of Isaac. However, mine only lasts about three hours on the Power Saver setting. I've even removed my SLI GPU to test it and un-overclocked my CPU/GPU.
Y510p - i7 4700MQ (Overclocked to 3.6GHz), SLI GT755M, Corsair Vengeance 16GB 2133MHz, Samsung 850 Pro 256GB, MyDigitalSSD SuperBoot 128GB, Intel Wireless-AC 7260, Windows 7 Home Premium (SP1)
I was just wondering what the average time was for a totally dead y510p to charge while using it for some light browsing on the internet. It seems to charge really slow especially after it reaches about 80 percent or so. I was curious to see what other owners have had in terms of charge time. I seem to have narrowed it down to about 5 percent every 10 minutes while my cousins HP charges way faster. Not too upset about it but a bit curious. For example as I am typing this out it's been at 99% for the past 20 minutes or so, and HW monitor shows it charging really slowly but when its at like 50 percent it charges at a decent rate maybe about 10 mwh every 5 seconds or so.
I've been playing Battlefield 3 for some time on Auto settings (most of them are Ultra) and my FPS were always in the range 65-85. Yesterday morning everything was fine, however at night when I opened the game again I had 10-15 FPS. I haven't changed anything in my laptop settings so I don't know why this is happening.
P.S: I only have 1 GPU (not the SLI version) so I know it's not a loss of power. But my battery settings are set to "Optimized battery health". Does it affect performance ?
I've got Y510p with USB 2.0 not working. By the time it malfunctioned it was under warranty and I sent it in the service center. They have claimed that it has been repaired (USB board has been changed) but it is still not working and my warranty ended like 3 days after I sent it back. Since then (1 month ago) I am returning it to the service center for 3 times (last one was today) and I feel they can't fix it. URL....
I bought Lenovo Y510P . and because of just hyper-v feature on win 8.1 pro also i need to upgrade windows. I found product key with a software and after that i open the "add feature to windows 8.1" . And when I choose "i already have product key" and put the product key , it does not accept . and says "this key won't work" .
So what i should do for getting windows 8.1 pro pack ? and why product key does not work ?
I have been using this for 4-6 months this happened before and i bought it to the service center i bought it there twice, and now today it still shuting down while playing not overheating but this pop up shows up when i start it again, whats wrong and Under my laptop is a air condition running under it so not overheating.
For about week I have problems with sound device, so that no sound is played. When I start my notebook it works few minutes, then it stops and when I wanna to test it it gives me error message:
"The device is being used by another application. Please close any devices that are playing audio to this device and then try again.", even when I have no programs running.
I tried all solutions that I found. Disable device, enable divace, restart Windows audio service, Troubleshooter. One think that work (sometimes) is to restart my notebook. But constantly restarting isn't quite the solution I'm satisfied with.
Brand new G50-70: When using OS from the SSD or using OS from the SSD and doing things with a USB-drive, the empty internal DVD-drive making clicking sound and sometimes freezing SSD read/write operation for about 30 seconds but all the time freezing USB-storage read/write operation for about 30 seconds.
When freezing there's always clicking. But when clicking there's not always freezing except when using USB-storage.
OS is Win81-64.
An example scenario: connect USB stick, open terminal, type diskpart, dvd-drive clicks and freezes opening of diskpart for about 30 seconds, then the same may or may not happen when entering commands like clear the stick and format the stick.
When I recieved my Y510p about 8 months ago, the usb ports worked perfectly fine. Around October they stopped working properly. The only solution which I found to work was doing a system restore. When I did this, an Unrecognized Device in the Device Manager was no longer unrecognized, and was instead replaced by USB xHCL (or something along those lines). However, as soon as i restared my computer again, the ports broke, and the unrecognized device reappeared. Repeating the restore followed by a restart breaks the ports every time.
My Y510p has been freezing on startup, every startup. It can be completely inoperable for upwards of half an hour before unfreezing. It unfortunately has been occuring since the computer arrived (21 March, this year), so I doubt it has been caused by any software I've added. Given my limited knowledge of computers.

I have a new y510p I just received this week. First thing I did was replace the 1TB HD with my own OCZ Vertex 4 256GB SSD Drive.When I power on the laptop for the first time, it does not find a bootable device (goes through network devices, then says no bootable devices). If I use ctrl-alt-delete to reboot the laptop, it then finds the drive on its own and starts booting into Windows.
I'd like to understand why this does not work on the first boot? I went into the BIOS and saw it says there that no drives are detected.This worries me slightly, as perhaps one day it will decide to no longer recognize the drive after the ctrl-alt-delete?
On my Y510p I am getting low memory warnings wether im playing a game or just idling or on youtbe. When I open up the task manager its says my memory is at 70%-100% WHILE IDLE but the programs are only using like 25%-40% memory so something is hidden. Just looking for a fix or allocating more memory to Windows. I have an 8Gb system.
Here is a screenshot of the task manager while I right this [URL] ....
