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

Hi,

You can have a look HERE what microsoft says about this error.

You''l need Windows XP SP2 to support a PCI-Express graphics card.
If you are using only PCI-Express graphics card, the only choice is to boot from the complete edition of Windows XP SP2.

If you intend to install with Windows XP or Windows XP SP1 and then use the upgrade kit of SP2, please disable PCI-Express in BIOS before starting the installation.

Under this circumstance, only PCI graphics card can help you monitoring the installation process at this stage. Then, upgrade the version to SP2. After upgrading is successfully completed, you can enable PCI-Express and start using PCI-Express graphics card.

Goodluck.

SOURCE: replace keyboard on Y510

The keyboards on ThinkPads are easy to replace.
On the bottom of the laptop there are screws that hold the keyboard in place (possibly 3 or 4 screws). These screws can be identified by the tiny keyboard symbol next to these screws. Remove these screws, you need a small Phillips screw driver. You can now lift the keyboard off, you may need a small flat screw driver to lift it off. The keyboard is attached to the motherboard by one or two ribbon cables, they are held in place by slide catches, slide these catched to release the tension on the ribbon cable/s so you can withdraw the ribbon cable/s.

When you insert the new keyboard make sure the cable catches are in the released position before you insert the ribbon cable, insert the cable fully home and press the slide catches home to lock the ribbon cable to the motherboard.
At this stage I suggest you power up the laptop and test the keyboard to see if it is functioning correctly. If is not working properly, then the ribbon cable/s may need reseating again. When all is OK now fix the keyboard in place with the screws.

I have lenovo ideapad Y510 7758 laptop, i installed win 7 (64-bit) ultimate on that. where i found all drivers


I did a search on your model and seems they made this laptop with windows 8.1 to window 10 in mind and did not release drivers for windows 7. I seem this a lot. they do not wish to support older OS so they do not release the drivers for them.

Password bios lenovo y510


To reset the BIOS password read the information from this link.

In case of your Lenovo laptop the easiest method would be using software from Hiren's Boot CD as it's pretty hard to open it up and reach for the CMOS battery or the jumper and I wouldn't recommend doing it especially if it's under warranty.

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 Microsoft.com.

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.

Hi satyadevbujj,

Based on concern, Y510 camera driver for Windows 7 is not yet released based on Lenovo's support download site. Hence, you still can try updating the camera using the windows vista camera driver. Just go to this link.

--> after downloading, install the driver then restart your computer.

Hope it helps,

Thank you for using FixYa.

Can't find drivers for win 7 64-bit for lenovo y510


Hello,

Windows 7 is a new platform and every hardware manufacture is developing the driver suits for it.Meanwhile you will have to download the drivers directly from the chip manufacturers site e.g. for sound you can download it from http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/.

About the chip manufacturers you can know from the Y510 page where the drivers are there for Vista or XP.

Thanks.
