Question about Lenovo 3000 Y410 Notebook

1 Answer

Lenovo Y410 white screen

My Lenovo Y410 laptop gets milky white screen that spreads from the center to about 90% of the screen. Initially it was happening from time to time, but then more often, and now it is white all the time. Booting in Safe Mode produces the same results. Laptop shows everything perfectly on an external monitor. Replacing the monitor inverter did not help. As this white spot is mostly in the center, I still can see a few icons in a corner of the desktop where the white spot is not that dense, but they are very pale. Any idea what this can be and how to fix it? I would greatly appreciate a good advice. Thank you, Alex

All that's left is the Video Cable, and LCD screen, Aberger.

Video Cable connections are tight? LCD screen side, screen Inverter, and motherboard side?

Then a continuity check with a multimeter set to OHMs, for each wire in the cable, or take to a 'Mom and Pop' computer store, and have the tech check it, or replace.

Video Cable checks out, connections check out, the LCD screen is the problem.

My money is on a bad LCD screen, JMHO.

SOURCE: cannot get out of Configurating updates: stage 3 of 3 screen

This is all I could find:


It's not only Windows Vista Service Pack 1 that isn't ready for general consumer availability. Some of the updates released on February 12, 2008, as a part of the Microsoft monthly patch cycle, have managed to effectively kill Windows Vista. Users are reporting that, following the introduction of the February 12 updates, Vista gets stuck at the finalization of the deployment of the updates displaying the message "Configuring Updates Stage 3 of 3 0% completes" and then entering
an infinite reboot loop. And there is absolutely no way out for the end users, because canceling the configuration process of the updates is a move equivalent to losing access to the operating system entirely. This will even happen in Safe Mode.

Microsoft has yet to officially respond to the issue, or to provide a resolve or at least a workaround. However, it does seem at this point that there is an issue with the deployment of the pre-requisite updates necessary for the smooth installation of Windows Vista SP1. Namely, the problem resides in the Vista installation software. The fact of the matter is that end users will have to first update the Vista installation software and only then deploy the remaining February 12 updates and only at the end Vista SP1 RTM.

If you are stuck watching the "Configuring Updates Stage 3 of 3 0% complete Do not turn off Computer" and in the endless reboot loop, then stop the cycle and boot from the Vista media. You will need to "Repair your computer," so select your Vista installation and restore it to a point before the deployment of the updates. After gaining back access to your operating system, you will have to install the service stack update, namely Update for Windows Vista (KB937287). Deploy this update before any other on your Vista, and only then install the rest. At this point in time, you should experience no more problems.

"Update 937287 is a prerequisite package that contains updates to the Windows Vista installation software. The installation software is the component that handles the installation and the removal of software updates, language packs, optional Windows features, and service packs. Update 937287 is necessary to successfully install and to remove Windows Vista SP1 on all versions of Windows Vista," Microsoft revealed.

I have [lenovo 3000 y410]laptop i change my operating system vista to w7 now i'm not getting Bluetooth driver audio driver key pad function also disable


Welcome to fix ya.

This is happening because the is no driver for bluetooth and audio. To resolve this download the appropriate drivers in www.consumersupport.lenovo.com

Once you are on the website it would ask for your serial number. The serial number for an ideapad Y410 is located on the bottom of the system. Look for a white sticker then look for the S/N number. The serial numbers for a Y410 usually starts with CBU.

when you have successfully input your serial number it would display the list of drivers for your system. Look for the bluetooth and audio drivers for windows 7. You should find drivers for your touchpad here. If not you can look for the drivers of the touchpad here www.synaptics.com/support/drivers

Welcome to FixYa!

It seems that you're having a serious display problem. One way to confirm this issue is for you to go to the BIOS screen of your Y410 and see if the problem would materialize.

Here's how
  • Shutdown your computer and disconnect any USB storage devices attached.
  • Turn it on and tap on the "F2" key repeatedly until you see a different screen
Once in BIOS, see if the discoloration/blinking issue is present. If it is, then I strongly suggest that you take this laptop to the nearest Lenovo repair center. If it's still in warranty, then the repair can be covered, otherwise, I'm seeing close to $300 for LCD replacement.

Hope this helps and Thank you for using FixYa.

Possible Crack/Spillage in LCD Screen


I'm afraid you need to replace he LCD screen of your laptop. Replacing LCD screens is a bit complicated, that I suggest you send it to the Manufacturer's Service Center if it is still under warranty to avid voiding your units other warraty.

Hope this helps.
If it does, please vote. Thanks.
