Hi. I think you could try updating the drivers for your DVD drive or by deleting the upper and lower filters on the registry so that we could verify if this a hardware or software issue. follow this instruction on deleting the upper and lower filters on the registry:

  1. Click the Start button and click in the Start Search box.
  2. Type regedit, and then press the <Enter> key.
    Note: The User Account Control window may appear. If so, click Continue. The Registry Editor window appears.
  3. Click the arrow next to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE.
  4. Click the arrow next to SYSTEM.
  5. Click the arrow next to CurrentControlSet.
  6. Click the arrow next to Control.
  7. Click the arrow next to Class.
  8. Click {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}.
  9. In the right-hand pane of the window, click UpperFilters.
  10. Click Edit on the menu bar.
  11. Click Delete. The Confirm Value Delete window appears.
  12. Click Yes.
  13. In the right-hand pane of the window, click LowerFilters.
  14. Click Edit on the menu bar.
  15. Click Delete. The Confirm Value Delete window appears.
  16. Click Yes.
  17. Click File, and then click Exit.
  18. Click the Start button.
  19. Click the arrow to the right of the lock icon.
  20. Select Restart.
If this doesnt fix the issue this might be a already a hardware issue, and from their you might want to clean the optical lens with cotton buds. Hope this helps

I HAVE LENOVO IDEA PAD Y510 NOTE BOOK I CANT PLAY MOST OF MY DVD AND THEY ARE FACTORYBOUGHT DVDS WHY


Hi toiyoshi7,
I see that most of your dvd's won't work on your Lenovo Y510, Please see steps below.
  • First I want to ask have you tried your Dvd's on another system if it works or not?
  • If the dvd's play on another system then you can try to check the settings of your Optical Drive.
  • Click start then My Computer if you have XP or Computer if you have Vista or Win7.
  • In My Computer or Computer right click on your Dvd drive.
  • Then select Properties you should get a window Dvd RW properties or which ever name appears depending on the windows you have then select the TAB that says Hardware.
  • In the window you will see All Disc drives: in the list select your DVD drive then click Properties below right side.
  • This will bring up the DVD drive properties window then click on DVD Region.
  • In the DVD region will be a bow below select United States then click OK until all the windows you opened are close and for some you may need to close them.
  • After changing the Region setting on your DVD, Restart your computer to make changes take effect.
  • After restarting the Laptop try your DVD's again
If this does not work then deleting Upper and lower Filters can be done but since you mentioned that some dvd's work, I cam suggest maybe updating your system codecs try downloading K-lite codec pack, or maybe try using a different Player like VLC player if you are using Windows Media Player.
I hope that this maybe of help regarding your concern.
Have a nice day,
mvincentc

WEB CAM OF LENOVO Y510 IS nt working in skype


Try pressing the "Fn" and "esc" buttons on the keyboard both at the same time to turn the camera on or off. It may work or may not, but that is the way it is supposed to work. There have been a lot of problems with this web cam and yahoo messenger. The only other thing I can suggest is to contact Lenovo and see if they might have another driver that can resolve this.
