Can't find drivers for win 7 64-bit for lenovo y510


Hello,

Windows 7 is a new platform and every hardware manufacture is developing the driver suits for it.Meanwhile you will have to download the drivers directly from the chip manufacturers site e.g. for sound you can download it from http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/.

About the chip manufacturers you can know from the Y510 page where the drivers are there for Vista or XP.

Thanks.

When i start my laptop .... an error occurs NTLDR MISSING.... PRESS ALT+CTRL+DEL to restart............. i also dont have a xp cd ....... will u please help me....????


well I've encounter that before, ok this is what you can do..

XP installer cannot solve the problem..

try to download trial version of widows 7 installer on microsoft website, once you ave it in cd or dvd,

just put it on your cd rom drive and have it start all over again, when prompted to boot on cd, click enter

install the windows 7 directly, after clean installation, then you'll find that your laptop is ok

it is up to you if you would like to keep the windows 7 as your OS or downgrade it to vista or xp.

beware that windows 7 still have a driver issue, but it is working.

if you gonna need genuine serial key, please contact us by subscribing as a premium member and I will provide you genuine serial key

Partition


Hi,
The solution to your problem is very simple.
First make two partions of your harddrive, To do so:
-Open up control panel.
-Click open Administrative Tools.
-Click open Computer Managment.
-Then Click on Disk Managment on the right side.
-Choose your main Harddrive, Right click and click Shrink Drive
The amount you Shrink will became your second partions that you can put any OS you want.


After you Have made two partions Install the Vista Os on the second partion(its usually named D:).Soon after the installation is done choose vista from the OS choice menu.
-Log into Vista
-Click on the Drive that has XP installed into and by using the ".exe" files of the software you want to install. Install the software onto vista.
And there you go, now you have:
-Vista N XP on two seperate drives.
-And your vista has the software you wanted.

Please Rate, Thanks

Here is the lenovo site for the drivers for you pc. Only download and install the xp driver versions...after which you should be able to update the drivers for the devices that have the yellow color and should not have any problems installing.

You can also check the windows update site...do a custom update and search for drivers...sometimes new driver versions can be downloaded that way.

Hope this helps

Check the following location for the drivers for your Ideapad Y510.

The drivers for lenovo y410 will not work for your laptop.
In fact most of the XP drivers at the above link were available since December 2007
