Question about Lenovo IdeaPad Y430-3231U Notebook

1 Answer

The Lenovo Y430 occasionally gets a blue screen. OS is Windows XP. The computer is fairly new. Could this be a software problem or a hardware issue? Would an upgrade to Vista solve the problem?

I want lenovo wirless driver for Y410-7757 model for win 7 32 bit.


From Windows 7 and up, for all hardware that is certified with Microsoft, you can download the drivers from Microsoft. Lots of hardware is recognised when connected and will initiate a download from Microsoft. But not all hardware will do so and not all hardware is compatible (same as not certified by Microsoft from Windows 7 and up) with the new operating systems.

Most things that worked fine with Windows XP and or Vista, can fail with Windows 7 and 8, because the factory that made the hardware in the first place does not ask for certification with Microsoft for their old Hardware. They only spend time and money to get their new hardware certified on the new operating systems. So to make sure your hardware is compatible with the OS. Check the manual and find out, what you have to do so it will work on your computer.
There is no special Lenovo driver, unless the hardware in your laptop is made by Lenovo. In that case the driver will be on your computer after you installed Windows 7. Perhaps you call something a driver but need something else?

Bluescreen is appearing after installing the os


Usual reason for blue screen after OS install is corrupted OS. It might have missed a file while installing or cd had a smudge or scratch on it. It rare occasions it can be hard drive it self. I would try to reload the OS but make sure CD is clean of dirt and scratches. Most times this will resolve issue. Also if you are installing higher version of OS on a pc that had Hardware that does not support new OS version. Like going from XP to Windows Vista or Windows 7. Sometimes you just cant upgrade even by doing new install since not all computer hardware is compatible with new OS. Some manufactures do this so you have to by new computer in order to get new Windows version. Hope this helps.

For the past few days my Lenovo IdeaPad Y430 has been booting up as usual up to the point where i put in my username and password. I get a black screen with the cursor after i log on and cannot go beyond...


Hi verneaimable,

I'm glad to help you out with the boot up issue of your Ideapad Y430. Based on the details that you have provided this is leading to a software issue. To address this concern, you need to reload the Operating System of your machine. OS has been corrupted causing you not to boot up on Windows. Lenovo do have this One Key Recovery button that you can use. You need not to worry because I have step by step procedure below making it easy for you to do the process:


Discalaimer: Using the One Key Recovery will put back your machine to it's factory settings. Any important file/software you currently have will be wiped out. You might want to create back up copy first of all your files before continuing on the process.


Steps:

1. Turn off your compter.

2. Look for theOne Key Recovery button on your PC. It's near the power button.

3. Press the OKR button, wait until your computer turns on.

4. After Windows loading files you'll be routed on Lenovo One Key Rescue System.

5. Select One Key Recovery then, select restore from Intial back up.

Usually it will take 20-30 minutes for the whole process to be done. Once it's finish just reboot your computer. You'll now have the operating system reloaded to your pc. This should fix the issue.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using Fixya.

My dell comes on but it doesn't go to windows it goes to an error screen what do I do?


What is the error? Is it a blue screen or some other type of issue? Did you recently change some hardware driver or OS setting?

What OS do you have installed - this is very important if you downloaded Microsoft updates in the past few days on a computer with XP. There was an issue with a patch and it has to be rolled back. The symptom of this issue is the blue screen with the message "Page_Fault_In_NonPaged_Area" The solution is detailed at: http://www.krebsonsecurity.com/2010/02/new-patches-cause-bsod-for-some-windows-xp-users/ . Microsoft will offer free phone support at 1-866-PCSAFETY and has an alternate fix here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/979682


Other errors can often be dealt with by rolling back with system restore (carefully - you can lose other drivers).

I hope this helps.

You could replace the motor board for less than $100 but I think the geek squad says the motor board is bad on every computer that doesn't start right up for them so I would have someone else look at it first. Or just get a new computer at walmart for like $300
