Question about Lenovo IdeaPad Y510 Notebook

1 Answer

C:drive close to full red indication

I have Lenovo Y510 with Windows Visa Home Premium. The recovery system uses large amount(29 Gigabytes) of this c: partition.

I download to the D: drive, but the amount of available space
is getting smaller on the C: drive. The indicator changed from
blue to red which indicates space close to critical.

Is their a solution to this problem?

If you will change the C: drive size it will affect your one key recovery.
Go on run option by pressing the windows button and r.
type prefetch continue and delete all the files.
2.again type %temp% and enter delete all the entries coming.
3.disable indexing and if you can afford formating C: then format and then download the vista service pack 1 from and reason being that vista is having autometic paging and indexing and this consumes all the space from the C: drive.
Service pack 1 resolves this issue.

My lenovo ideapad Y510 is not able to start windows vista which was preloaded into it when soon as it is switched on, fan start running and it gets shut down after sometime without starting...

This sounds like a problem with the operating system. The best way I know to fix this is to wipe the old operating system off and install windows 7 with a full install disc.

Windows 7 Home Premium is more stable and faster than Vista ever was, but will cost $199.99 or so for the full version, or if it's possible to install with the upgrade, $119.99 or so from

If your Vista could be started, you could theoretically go to the recovery console and 'recover' it or go to help-> restore and restore to an earlier date where the computer wasn't malfunctioning. However, these options aren't available if you cannot even start windows.

My CD drive (DVD RW) is not working. It fails to recognise any kind of CD. I think its driver is not working properly. Please help me.My laptop is LENOVO ideapad, model Y510.

You can go to the lenovo site (

Clcik on support on the menu
Then choose download drivers
Enter your domel number, etc and choose the proper driver for your OS
Download it and install it.
That may take care of it. If not:

right click my computer and choose manage
click on device manager
Find your CD drive in the list and right click it
It may list "upadte drive" in that list. If not choose "properties"
There should be a tab called drivers - choose that one and switch your driver

Hope that works.

My computer, a lenovo y510 laptop malfunctioned. After inserting the recovery, and attempting to boot from the disk, the screen simply goes blank instead of opening the normal vista install center.

Hi lightning_ha,

Based on your situation, I suggest trying the following steps:

1. Turn on the system then insert the recovery disk inside the ODD.

2. Now turn off the computer while recovery disk is inside.

3. Turn on the computer, the moment you press the power button, immediately tap the F12 key and press it continuously.

4. Now you have the boot option. Select CD/DVD/ODD by pressing enter then continuously tap it until you see the Windows is loading a file.

5. Wait until it goes 100%.

6. Now it will ask you on what partition you will put the operating system. Just select the partition that has a large capacity or size.

7. Just wait until it completes the whole installation.

8. Restart the computer.

Hope it helps,

Thank you for using FixYa.

When i am formating my laptop it show me setup did not find any hard disk... i am using windows 7 and i want to install xp but this problem is occur so please give me solution .... thnx

Hi. Are you using the Recovery disk from Lenovo or is it another Windows installer. Using oher Cd's other Lenovo Recovery disk will not work. Your computer's motherboard is locked in using lenovo's recovery disk that came with the system. if you want your system back and running. You must use lenovo recovery disk.

try removing the battery and removing the adaptor press and hold down the power button for 5-10 seconds then let got this will power drain your system board noy turn the system on using the battery only without any adaptors to charge or power the system, try turning the system on if the system turnes on leave it turned on for a couple of hours then conenct your sysem adaptor monitor if the battery light and the battery indicator on the lower right of the screen in windows woll indicate that the system is chargin if it is then I believe everything should be fine the blue indicator is for your system if it is blue then your system is turned on and has power if it turned orange and blnking then the battery will be more likely be almost out of juice or may need charging.

Computer keeps locking/freezing after 10 mins of booting up.

since you already use one key recovery, means its no longer a software issue, either ram or video card is the problem, might need to send to service center of lenovo.

Windows failed to boot. I have tried booting it from the disc. Any ideas?

Try launching the One Key Recovery program.
1. Back up all files that
you wish to keep from the C: drive
2. Turn off the computer (no
flashing lights).
3. Press the Lenovo Care Button (small button with
upside down arrow or word NOVO written on it).
4. Select System
Recovery (very much different from the above mentioned System Restore).
5. Select to restore to factory default settings / initial settings.
