Lenovo P/Y/Z Series :: Y510p - RAM Is Full Message When Playing Games
Jun 20, 2014
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
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.
I am playing a game or watching a movie in Fullscreen, randomly it minimizes to desktop and I dont know what is causing this issue. I restore the window to Fullscreen again and everything is normal.
Points to note here - 1) It is completely random, happens once in couple of hours. 2) I use my laptop connected to a TV using HDMI. 3) I use USB mouse and keyboard (which have never been an issue with my old laptop) 4) I play Origin and Steam games and it happens with both of them.
Is there a way to detect, what program might be causing this? Otherwise, my system is completely stable and works great. Its just annoying, suddenly for the game to minimize when you are about to score a goal in FIFA (or the other way round).
Also, I have the AVG Free Antivirus.I will try to dig through its settings and check What can I disable.
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 have that laptop for about 4 months, today for some reason i went playing Maxpayne 3 and while in game, few minutes later the PC starts to BEEP like alarm clock without stopping, I cant see any heating problems, the GPU's are on 67C no more.
The main problem is that i cant see any messages from WIndows about any issues on the system
I have just checked with FURMARK - when the GPU1 goes to 80C its starts beeping - is it supposed to be like that?
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 computer (the Lenovo Y510P) started acting up the first day I bought it. It runs smoothly and everything, but the speakers seem to crackle and pop whenever I play music or games (even at a low volume). I've been seeing that many Lenovo Y510P users have been having this same issue and can assume that the problem is a hardware issue because:
1) Installing different versions of sound drivers AND even downloading the recommended sound drivers from Lenovo DOES NOT WORK. 2) Changing the power options DOES NOT WORK. 3) Plugged in headphones and even bluetooth can hear the static.
I'm thinking about returning this laptop since this is the 3rd day of having it. If there's no fix for this defect, I'm returning it before the 7th day.
My Vaio crashes while playing 3D intensive games like, L4D, Crysis, Crysis Warhead, CoD WaW. After playing about 1~2 hours or so.
No other application causing this, so I suspect the GPU. Here are the details:
Symptoms:Screen quickly fades out to either dark grayish black, or white.Some scratchy sounds on the background.Barely visible waves moving upside-down on the screen (like when you cannot get a clear signal on TV).2 or 3 vertical thin noises on the screen.Cannot exit to desktop, have to cold boot the PC
Specs: Sony Vaio VGN-FW93XS 16.4"Core2Duo T9900 3.06 GhzATI Radeon Mobility HD 4650 1GB (with the latest Catalyst drivers installed)4 GB RamDirectX 10Vista Home Premium x64 Other info:GPU temp before gaming: 45~50, during gaming: 68~75 CelsiusCPU temp before gaming: 35~40, during gaming: 65~70 CelsiusPlaying with high settings (e.g. "Gamer" in Crysis) with no performance issues whatsoever until crash.From what I gathered, those temps are not way too high, and the PC should hold well.
I have a Studio 1555 and keep getting the message that my drive "D" is almost full. Can I delete all these files and and let the system start backing everything up again? I'm also running Norton 360 which has a backup file on the same drive, is this double redundancy or what?
Ever since I installed Windows 7, every time I try running a game that I could play just fine before installing Windows 7, such as Rome: Total War, my computer crashes when I actually start playing the game (as in I can see the map and I tell one dude to move and then the game crashes).
When I say it crashes I mean that the screen turns black but the computer is still running and the fan is on and whatnot, but I am unable to make the computer do anything and I have no choice but to hold down the power button to manually shut off the computer.
in my laptop acer aspire 6930 g I use Speed Fan programe and I find that temperature of processor intel core 2 duo 2Ghz reach to 70 C and video card nvidia 9600m GT reach to 70 to 72 C and hard disk temp reach to 55 to 60 C during playing games like need for speed undercover and Crysis and many and many times game stop working and laptop hang then game close by itself or I close it using task manager and I do not know if this problem occur due to high temperature of laptop devices or duo to something else and u should knowthat these games work well for some time before hanging problem occur..
and temperature of my laptop devices during normal use is:
processors 43 C to 52 C and video card 57 C to 60 C and hard disk 42 C to 50 C So is previous temperature normal in this laptop and what I can do to solve this problem?
I have an Aspire 1694wlmi with a 2GHz Pentium M, a Mobility Radeon x700 (256mb) and 1GB of ram. I run Win XP with SP3. I didn't do anything to the comp apart from removing its crappy built-in wlan adapter.
The issue is this: whenever I play any game (even as undemanding as UT99) the laptop just shuts down without warning. This even happens playing 8ballclub's billiards sim in window mode for instance.
The whole thing started happening occasionally a long time ago (with Rome Total War at first). Right now, it happens always and very very soon after starting the game (i.e. less than a minute).
I have noticed that the CPU usage jumps to 100% as soon as I launch the game and stays there until shutdown (but this is supposed to be normal, yes?). Also, I tried stopping all non-essential processes (of which there weren't that many to begin with) and the CPU usage is around 0-4% when idle.
I have also opened the lid and look for dust - none there (neither around the processor nor around the graphics adapter)
I tried updating the ATI drivers, but since the Radeon is included in all Acers, it won't let you update the drivers - and Acer doesn't provide updates either. I have installed the Catalyst Control Center...
People have associated such problems with viruses. I use Avast which finds no viruses (I'm installing Kaspersky next).
I've had my Dell Inspiron 15R SE for a year and 3 months. Unfortunately, over the last couple of months the laptop has been getting incredibly hot when playing games to point where it has cut out a couple of times.
This is playing games on the lowest spec/graphics quality and after setting high performance in the CCC to enable the graphics card. For example, my wife can play Skyrim on her laptop which is a much lower spec than my Inspiron with clear frame rates and it stays cool. Doing so on my Inspiron results in overheating quickly on the same quality settings.
I've tried using compressed air on the vents of my laptop in case it's a dust issue, but not sure if I should get into taking it to bits to check the fans more thoroughly.
However, I'm not sure if it actually is a fan issue or a hardware issue. I've run optimisers to make sure my system is running efficiently too. I currently have Windows 8.1.
I purchased this Ideapad Z50-70 laptop two days back. It was DOS based so I had to install Windows 8.1 OS myself. After installing the OS, I installed all the drivers for this laptop.
The display of the laptop is set to Full HD resolution i.e. 1920*1080. However, it doesn't look as sharp and crips as a normal HD display should be. The text and other things looks blurred. Also, the contrast of the screen doesn't seem well. Though the resolution is set to Full HD, I'm not feeling the quality smoothness and sharpness of the full HD display.
I've taken apart from 1730 and made sure there was no dust and its quite clean, its sitting up at the back so air is flowing through under it but when playing games all on low settings (playing demigod)
it still slows down when a lot is happening on screen, and the laptop gets extremely hot - even some parts are too hot to touch.
I have a new Acer 5740g 6979. I am not able to play games on it. As soon as i progress a bit in the game, even at lowest resolution and everything set to low, the laptop shuts down after a while. it powers off.
I have updated the graphics drivers. but still its causing problems. tried playing two different games. it still crashes.
I recently purchased an HP Pavilion DV4-1220us, and right off the bat, I noticed strange problems when playing games. After a while, things get distorted and pixelated. So, I downloaded HWMonitor, and I noticed that the higher the temps get, the worse the graphical problems become.
I found this website, and went to undervolt my CPU. Long story short, the stock voltages were 1.125 V, which seemed weird to me. I was able to undervolt it by quite a lot and still not have it BSOD. Under a full load from ORTHOS, I saw a reduction from 90C down to 80C, but when I play games, I don't get that much of a decrease. Before, when gaming it would hover around 80C, and now it hovers around 75C. That's still a pretty decent decrease, but the graphical glitches continue to happen, albeit a bit less noticeably.
I opened up CPU-Z, and I noticed that whether it's undervolted or not, the voltage keeps switching back and forth between what it's set at, and 1.20 V. I've heard from a few other users that they've seen this as well.
Could this voltage fluctuation have anything to do with the graphical glitches?
Has anyone else with my GPU experienced the same problems?
I seem to be getting MS/Ping lags when playing on my Alienware M14x. Every now and then I get random spikes. It stays good for a couple of seconds and then it suddenly it spikes. I have tried running different games and I still get same problems. I uninstalled my WiFi driver and still same problem. I don't know what step I should take next, It is also not overheating, I manage to keep it at a steadt 50. I will now post some of my specs.

about the last week now whenever I play games such as WOW and Far Cry 3 It will start off fine and about a minute - 2 minutes later the game will start to slow down right to less than 1 frame a second I also get keyboard and mouse latency when this happens, and when that starts happening my computer will unexpectedly shutdown.I have the latest driver for my GPU, My computer doesn't feel hot at all when this happens which makes me think it might not be an overheating issue and it only happens when playing games, I can do video editing and rendering just fine along with all the basic computer uses such as file transfer, watching videos, listening to music and browsing without any problem. I pulled my Laptop apart thinking it might just be dust build-up and their was a fair bit of dust clogging up the air vent along the side of my laptop, I cleaned that all out and the air started flowing better from the vent. Thinking that was the problem I turned my laptop back on and it done the same thing while playing games.I'm not sure how to tell If it is a heat issue because there is no separate fan for the cpu or gpu and I can't get temperature readings because my computer slows down too much and then shuts down.Computer Specs:Dell XPS 17 L702x

I bought this Z710 new but I get a message saying "The battery is unauthorized". Also the battery indicator stays at "0% available (plugged in, not charging)." If I unplug the power cord, the laptop powers off cold. It has always been this way. This is a problem for me because I want to upgrade my BIOS but I can't because I get an error stating "Battry is too low (0 < 30 ). Please charge your battery to 30%." when I try.
How do I get this laptop to start interacting with its battery? I have already tried taking it out and putting it in again and rebooting.
I'm using a seconday (spare) power adapter at home, for my y50. The adapter is a 20 volt / 90 watt unit. My primary adapter (in work) is the original adapter that came with the Y50, a 20 volt / 120 watt unit. When using the laptop with the spare adapter (the 90 watt unit) I get a Lenovo Energy Manager message that pops up stating "Adapter has limited support" and "Performance will be affected if the power adapter cannot provide enough charge". Presumably the laptop would need more than 90 watts to drive it if the CPU and /or video were working hard? Do you see any issues using that adapter for day to day work, that is, not gaming? Also, can the messge be disabled?
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 ?
