If it is switching off by itself & then allowing you to turn it back on it is most likely an overheating problem. The cpu has a built in sensor that shuts the pc off before damaging the cpu. First thing to check is your vents. Make sure they are free of dust & debri. After cleaning make sure your fan is blowing air out of the vents, if it is not then you will need to replace your cpu fan. If all is clean & fan is working then you could buy an inexpensive laptop cooling pad to set the pc on while working to help keep the temps in normal operating range. Hope this helps.

1. Check to make sure that you have good air flow around the laptop, including sides and bottom.
2. Make sure fan/heatsink area is clear of dirt, etc. If you are using the laptop in an environment where there is a lot of dust, it will clog up the fan/heatsink.
Check the Lenovo support forum to see how the clogged heatsink looks.
Be aware to get to access to the insides, will require dis-assembly of the laptop. Best left to experts.

Sir, my lenovo 3000Y500 laptop can't read dvds

Try reseating the DVD drive to make sure it is properly connected.
Next reinstall the DVD driver.
Check the BIOS to see if it detects the DVD drive.
If none of these work the the DVD drive is faulty and needs to be replaced.

How to restor factory o.s. on my lenovo 3000y500 laptop

You will have to have the factory OS restore disc or a recovery partition from the factory on your hard drive. If you have a recovery partition then you should be able to find it when the computer POSTs at boot - it may give you several options and one them being Recovery. Don't mess with your Setup unless you know what you're doing. Another possible way is by tapping F8 while your computer is booting up. It will go to a black screen with white text. You'll see several options: Safe Mode, LastKnownGoodConfiguration, and so on. Look for a line that suggests Recovery or possibly Utilities. If you can't find it by either of those ways, then you can usually contact the maker and ask for a Recovery Disc. They will want your model info. This usually costs under $50. If yo have a disc then just put it in, reboot the computer, press the indicated button for Boot Menu, Choose CD\DVD, and then press Enter. Follow the prompts from there to reinstall your OS.

Thanks for choosing

You can obtain drivers from the manufacturers website.
After you select your country, you then want to click under support where it says "Download software and drivers"
Its then a matter of picking your model, device, and the driver.

Hope this helps you out and feel free to ask further if needed.
