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


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.

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.

SOURCE: Disassemblly of the case of a LENOVO Y510

Well, I have been unsuccessful at getting a good look from a service manual but I might have an answer for you on what is hanging you up. Look in the area near the touchpad on the base. Are there what appears to be two Hex shaped stand-offs screwed to the motherboard in that area. These are generally used to secure Mini-pci cards and they are usually zinc in color. They may even have a plastic support nearby with an arrow by each standoff as a guide to remove them as a matter of case disassembly. Just a thought to look out for something like that.

SOURCE: my lenovo Y510 ideapad turns on but the screen

The next tim eit is turned on, try shiniing a bright flashlight directly on the screen.

If you can see anything there then the backlight has burned out on the screen, and will need to be replaced.

If you cant see anything, try hooking up an external monitor to the laptop, if you have a desktop the monitor for it will work for the test..

If the external monitor you hook up will work, then you will have to replace the screen..

( or at a minimum the inverter board, or check that the cables are tight that go to the screen)

SOURCE: Lenovo IdeaPad Y510 screen will just go black like

I recently worked on this exact problem.

We updated the video drivers to the most recent release.

I thought this fixed the problem but is re-surfaced a few hours later.

Then we flashed the BIOS to the most current version and reviewed the BIOS settings to ensure they were set the way we wanted them.

The problem appeared again the very first boot after flashing the BIOS. We re-booted and it hasn't happened again.

We are cautiously optimistic that the problem has been resolved.
