SOURCE: How to uninstall Vista and load XP in Lenovo Y510 Ideapad

Several points:

1. Although you may prefer XP to Vista, it is probable that you are simply
more familiar with it. If you would give yourself some time to become
accustomed to Vista, you might find that you like it. I know I do.

2. You can't literally "uninstall" Vista, but if you want XP instead, you
simply do a clean installation of XP the normal way. That will format the
drive, removing whatever is on it.

3. Do you already have a copy of XP you want to install? Did it come with
your old computer? If so you need to be aware that OEM versions (such as
those that came preinstalled on computers) are permanently tied by their
license to the first computer they are installed on. If that's your
situation, your copy of XP is not available to be used on your new laptop.

4. Over and above the licensing issue in point 3, many OEM version of
Windows XP are BIOS-locked to the computer they came with, and you actually
won't be able to install it on a different one.

5. You should check with your vendor to be sure, but the warranty on your
new computer may be voided if you change operating systems.

6. Laptops often have special drivers they need for components within them.
Your new laptop undoubtedly came with all the drivers needed for Vista, but
it didn't come with the drivers needed for Windows XP. Finding and getting
the drivers you need may be a problem.

If I were in your shoes, I'd stick with Vista.

If you still want to uninstall:
The normal way to "uninstall" any operating system is to format
the hard drive and install a new OS of your choice.

After backing up any data you wish to transfer to the new OS
installation, simply boot from the WinXP Home installation CD. You'll
be offered the opportunity to delete, create, and format partitions as
part of the installation process. (You may need to re-arrange the order
of boot devices in the PC's BIOS to boot from the CD.)

Then the backed up data can be restored and applications re-installed.

You can even try a dual boot, where you have both Vista and XP on the same system. Click HERE for pictorial guide.

You have a dead column of pixels. The only solution I'm afraid is to replace the LCD screen.

I'm sorry the news isn't good but can you take a moment and rate the solution as fixya even if it wasn't what you wanted to hear? Thanks! :c)

What can I do if my Lenovo yoga's screen has gone blank. I have had it less than two weeks. What can I do?


1.Is it new? It may be the best to take it back to the shop under warranty.
2. Try to connect an external monitor to see if you get any image. If you you get image on external monitor, most probably the screen cable is faulty or even the screen itself.

Lenovo z570 black screen at start up


You may like to check the Lenovo (IBM) page on screen diagnostics:

I searched the internet on "no display on laptop" which gave some informative results, but as only you know all the details of what is wrong only you can decide what is relevant.
I found the following interesting, but there are many more:
1. http://www.windowsbbs.com/pc-hardware/42349-laptop-no-display-screen.html
2. https://answers.yahoo.com/question/index;_ylt=AwrBTzGx1V5To3QA5QxLBQx.;_ylu=X3oDMTE0ZXVrMTVyBHNlYwNzcgRwb3MDMQRjb2xvA2JmMQR2dGlkA1FJVUswMV85Mg--?qid=20090409183121AACuZ46
3. http://www.ehow.com/way_5272815_laptop-display-screen-problems.html (on the right hand side of this article there are links toother articles about laptop screen problems)

Does your computer beep more than usual when you turn it on ? Tis may be a sign that components are loose or have come out, or there is some fault which must be looked up.

To find out if it's your screen, connect an external monitor via the VGA port on the side of your computer Press the function button to select the external screen, or both, and if you get a display on the external monitor it's your screen or components associated with it, for example the 'inverter' or the CCFL if your computer has one. It may be that the display has become disconnected from the computer (there is often a ribbon connector). It may even be the graphics/video hardware on your mainboard. If it's the screen, you can replace it: detailed instructions for a similar model are here
http://www.insidemylaptop.com/how-to-replace-lcd-screen-on-lenovo-ideapad-z575-laptop/

If this is case you need to disassemble your computer and find out what is wrong with screen. The manuals for your computer can be found here
http://mobilesupport.lenovo.com/gb/en/products/laptops-and-netbooks/ideapad-z-series-laptops/ideapad-z570

But you rea;;y need to find out what is wrong before you can even attempt to fix it. If you are not able/knowledgable enough to dissemble your computer, DON'T.

Ideapad turns on but doesnt boot up


One problem that will cause this, and that is easy to check, is to look at the USB ports on the side of the laptop, and make sure they are not damaged or shorted out (with no pins touching each other). This will cause Lenovo laptops to fail the bootup.

How to turn on


What?............Oh, okay.............I was going to watch this Disney movie though..........

JUST KIDDING!


http://www.asus.com/ph/Notebooks_Ultrabooks/ASUS_VivoBook_X202E/

1) Laptop OFF, monitor OFF, attach a VGA monitor to the VGA port, on the laptop.
(Right side, all the way to the back)

Or you can use the HDMI port, and use an HDTV.
The HDMI port is on the Left side.

Turn the monitor/TV on.
Turn the laptop on.
Does a display show on the external monitor/TV?
No?

Hold the Fn key down, and tap once on the F8 key.
The F8 key is the Display Toggle-Over key.
Go to what you are using as an external monitor. VGA monitor, or HDTV. Hold the Fn key down, and tap the F8 key until you get what you want.

Have a display on the external Monitor/TV?
Problem is NOT the graphics chipset.
Problem is the Video Cable, or LCD/Touch screen.

Post back in a Comment, as to the results of the external monitor test.

Does Lenovo 3000 Y410 support dual monitors


Yes.

1) Laptop OFF, monitor OFF.
Connect a VGA monitor to the VGA port, on the back of the laptop.

The VGA port is on the right side, as you view the back of the laptop.
This is a basic example of a VGA cable, and a VGA port, (Connector),

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VGA_connector

NOTE* Color does Not matter.

You can use a CRT monitor, (Looks like a small TV), or a flat LCD screen monitor if it has a VGA cable.

Turn the monitor on. If a CRT type allow it to warm up.
Turn the laptop on.

By default the display should show on the external VGA monitor.

IF not;
Press, and hold down on the Fn key, and at the same time tap once on the F3 key.

No?
There are at least 3 display options;

1) Internal monitor of laptop ONLY

2) Internal monitor of laptop AND external VGA monitor

3) External VGA monitor ONLY

Hold the Fn key down, and tap again on the F3 key.

(The Fn key is down at the bottom LEFT corner of the Keyboard.
The F3 key is at the top of the Keyboard.
The F3 key is the Display Toggle-Over key )

Need more information post in a Comment.

I have lenovo ideapad y510 which i wnna connect to samsung LED tv 6 series with HDMI input. So basically i want a cable which connects laptop video output to HDMI input in TV.


Hi er_gauravpra,

I see you want to use an HDMI connection for your Video from your Lenovo Y510.

I have checked information about the Y510 and it does not have the Technology of HDMI on the Y510 system of Lenovo, Y510 system only have the VGA port where in you can use a VGA cable to get video output to an External Monitor.

Regarding the issue about HDMI I have not seen any Converters yet that can be bought from anywhere to convert VGA to HDMI and I believe that will not be possible since VGA is a lower type of video output than what an HDMI can.

I do apologize but the Y510 systems does not have the HDMI technology to on it.

I hope this clarifies everything about your Query.

Have a nice day

My Lenovo Ideapad Y560 have blank screen display but can hear the HD moving and usual boot-up procedure but no display. Can you give suggestions on how to fix it?


Try connecting an external monitor to the VGA port on the left hand side towards the rear. Then turn it on. If you have a picture then you will need to look for the key that swaps the video output on the laptop. in the event that this doesn't work it sounds as though the Graphics module in you unit is broken. This will means taking the unit to a repair facility. I hope the problem is the easy one. Best of luck!
