Hi, i am using lenovo laptop y410, it came with windows vista basic, and i have converted to windows xp. my dvdram was working fine with windows xp, but all of a sudden it has stopped taking any of the cds/dvds. it accepts only the cds which have come with the laptop or the windows xp original cd. sometimes it reads a data cd/dvd as blank and blank cd/dvd as full. please help me solving this issue.

Lenovo y410 camera driver


Hi prashant3_yi,

Welcome to FixYa! How are you doing?

You did not specify the operating system you have (whether it is windows xp, vista or windows 7).

Anyways, you can download the camera driver of your Lenovo Y410 here: http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/MIGR-68104.html

Note: If the link does not work. Copy and paste it on the address bar of your internet explorer.

Hope it helps. Thank you for using FixYa!

I install W7.my sound has not working


The lenovo 3000 Y410 is part of their budget range and lenovo decided not to officially support Windows 7 for the hardware. However we have one that we use in the kitchen which we have been able to successfully upgraded to the far superior Windows 7 operating system.

In order to get the sound card working I tested the Windows XP and Windows Vista drivers.

As it turns out the Windows Vista driver supplied by lenovo worked fine for me.

Therefore to fix your problem, download and install the Windows Vista soundcard driver for your laptop which can be found here-

there may be incompatibility issues with that. have you checked on the device manager if the drivers were installed fine? if still none of them worked, you may need to revert it to your previous OS which is your vista. and to do that you just have to run the one key recovery which is the smaller button beside the power button. turn pc on using that button. be sure that your ac adapter is plugged in when you do that. and also back up all your files.

Want to format my lenovo y410 notebook


it's possible but i strongly recommend not doing it.

the main problem is that there are usually not XP drivers written for computer components designed for vista. i've even tried to revert a couple laptops back to XP myself, and after a long struggle, got everything working besides audio - because XP does not support HD audio used in vista computers. and even to get the rest of the components working, i had to edit the driver inf files.

you can check the manufacturer web site to see if your model has XP driver support, but if they don't, like i said i would strongly recomment staying with vista.

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

Hope this helps.
