Lenovo Y510p graphics break during gameplay

Q: Lenovo Y510p graphics break during gameplay

Hi all. I recently obtained a used lenovo y510p from a friend with the following configurations. Windows 8.1 ProSLI capable with 2 geforce 750M cards6gb RAMItb Hard disk2gb dedicated video memory. It plays games at decent speeds with medium settings but I get different errors from each of the 3 games I've tried. For dragon's dogma dark arisen, the game suddenly slows down for a few minutes and picks up speed again after a few (maybe 5) minutes. With mass effect 2 the game screen hangs, while sounds and music continue as normal. ctrl alt deleting and pressing esc will make the game proceed as if nothing ever happened. Finally, for the witcher 3: wild hunt, I get the windows display driver has stopped responding error. The games are properly purchased and as far as i know, so is the OS. I've tried all nvidia display drivers between and including 347.09 to 364.72. I've tried closing all other apps, and ending all nv processes in the task manager. I've also tried different power plans and different nvidia power management modes. I've been monitoring the temp with HWmonitor and it usually tops out at around 81c which I understand is fine for this particular laptop. I even have a targus chill mat to help regulate the temp. Lastly, I've spoken to my friend and he doesn't remember having those issues at all, but he never managed to game with the laptop very often. Any help would be appreciated, this is my first lenovo product. I pereviously owned a dell xps.

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

Hi all. I just bought my Y510P from a guy on craiglsist who had barely used the laptop. (Like turned it on once and then put it in the corner for a year and a half)  When I got it, the guy had restored everything to the factory settings which was just Windows 8.1. My first problem is that the computer keeps defaulting to use the HD 4600 instead of the 755M that I have set as the default graphics card in NVIDIA Control Panel. I disabled the 4600, but then the computer was super slow. Any idea why this is happening? My second problem is that I can't find anything to speed up the fans so that the computer will automatically overclock the i7. I'm tempted to slowly force it to overclock and have the fan speed increase with the temperature, but I'm afraid that I'm going to break something that way.  If anyone knows of a way to control the fan speed then that would be great. Thanks. Computer specs: Lenovo Y510Pi7-4700MQ8GB RAM1TB HDD24GB SSD (PCIe)Intel HD 4600 Graphics and GT 755M

Hey Everyone, I've recently noticed my laptop slowing as I played games like h1z1 on the lowest setting. Eventually, I would get error messages about my GPU when the game would crash. I noticed my drivers were out of date and SLI was also not enabled. I have since updated the drivers and enabled SLI but I still get many of the same problems.  The laptop has two GeForce GT 750M's. I downloaded MSI afterburner and it shows both graphics cards at 135/405MHz at rest. But while gaming, the second graphics card remains at that same amount and relatively the same temperature while graphics card number one goes to about 1058/2499MHz and 75-90 degrees C temperatures. I've also taken out the ultrabay with graphics card number 2 out and put it back in to make sure it wasn't loose. I honestly don't know what any of the data really means, but I'm really hoping to get this fixed. Any help would be greatly appreciated!! Let me know if I can provide any more information!

Hello Lenovo community! I am here on another level of frustration. Bare in mind I have had this problem for a couple of years now doing a TONNNNN of research and I just can not get it right. My problem is: Any game I play, even not playing a game can just be browsing websites I get error: application/program.exe has been denied access to the graphics hardware. When this happens minus the internet it generally closes the game, League of Legends.. problem occurs and I bug splat can happen up to 8 times a game sometimes it will go several games without happening once. Same thing for Path of Exile, Counter-Strike, World of Warcraft so on so forth. PC Specs:i7-4700mqSLI gt750m16 gigs memory1TB HDD28g HDDW8 64-bit Things I have tried SEVERAL times of each method.. DDU drivers in safe mode, reboot: reinstall, DISM cmd prompts repairs, underclocking through advanced power options in battery options, using each graphics card individually, running programs as admin an windows xp service pk.3, malware scans, restoring comp to factory settings. I even ran intel processor diagnostics tool and everything checked out. This has been on my nerves for a couple of years now and I come here to find support and get this case worked out.

Hi All, I have a Y510p with GT 755m graphics and i've had it around 2 years now with no problems. Just recently when trying to play games I just get a black screen when game boots. Some games then crash, others just remain black screen. Sometimes i get a message that "blahbla.exe has been blocked from accessing graphics hardware", sometimes i get nothing at all. I have tried 6 different versions of the appropriate drivers, I have tried reinstalling windows and checking as many settings are right as i can think of. Now i turn to you to ask why my graphics card might be **bleep**ting the bed every time i launch a game. Many thanks for any suggestions in advance.

I've been having this problem since I got my computer. Occasionally, while playing Call of Duty or World of Warcraft my screen will freeze then turn black over the course of 40+ seconds. I receive a pop up in my system tray when I close telling me "nvlddmkm driver stopped working". I've tried resolving the issue in the past, mostly by trying to update my graphics driver but it tells me I have the latest driver installed. This happens to many people from what I've read on the net but I haven't found a permanent fix myself.
I'm running a Vista 32-Bit OS on a Dell Inspiron 1720 Laptop.

A:Graphics stopping during gameplay

Most posts that I've seen about this issue (one here: http://forums.nvidia.com/index.php?showtopic=38941 ) suggest a complete removal of the nVidia drivers.At a minimum, I'd definitely uninstall the drivers, then search for instances of the nvlddmkm files and delete them before reinstalling the latest WHQL certified drivers.

Yesterday I was watching a movie when my whole computer froze up. When I tried to restart I could not boot into windows. After hours of tinkering, I decided to just wipe the drive and install Windows fresh. This worked just great. I started running windows update and after a few restarts, I got the same issue.
After reinstalling windows fresh about 4 times and reinstalling all my software one piece at a time I have pinpointed the issue. Its the video card drivers.

I don't have any issues with any other software, but as soon as I try to install ANY graphics card drivers, windows will not boot. It will show the loading screen, then the screen just goes black and tells me no signal. Restoring my system will fix it, but I can't play any games or even get full resolution like this. Everything worked before, and I can't find any issue with the hardware, so I am a bit baffled.

I'm using a Sapphire HD5870 and I'm playing GTA4. There are these annoying stutters my fps is running around 30-40. When I look at things, the boxes and shadows are barely finished loading. I switched to my 9800GT and tried the game out, and the game is running smoothly. I'm running it around 60 fps with no stutters. This is weird, because when I was playing Bad Company 2 on the 5870 card, the fps is around 60-120. On this card, Bad Company 2 is running around 40-60. Any suggestions?

it could be a overheated card maybe...but in case temp. is around 30 degrees...its ok isnt it?

i think maybe its an driverissue? or Dx issue? Cause my card is an GF4 ti-4200 128 mb 8x and doesnt support 9.0b though i use it and the latest detonatordriver.....

But ive used that for a long time and this started only last week!

another thing is that in other games i cant see anything wrong at all? WEIRD

A:getting white pixels in graphics during gameplay!

the problem may be the use of the latest detonator drivers they are really for the FX series of cards. you should go to the cards maunufacturers site and download the latest drivers THEY have for your particular card.

you should also use Driver cleaner V1.9 to completely remove older drivers before installing new ones.

get driver cleaner here

check for the drivers for your card here.

Hi anamorpho,
 
Greetings and Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
As I understand that you have query regarding Memory upgrade in Y510p
According to this up to 16GB DDR3L- 1600Mhz (Support Dual Channel).
For better performance try to use 2x8GB in each slots. Not necessary to use same brand RAM in each slots  just make sure that  specs are same thats all.
And also voltage and frequency matters it should work with any brands. Still find below some Lenovo tested 8GB RAM's

RAM, DDR3L 1600 8GB, Samsung, M471B1G73BH0-YK0    |  11200504
RAM, DDR3L 1600 8GB, SK hynix, HMT41GS6AFR8A-PB     |  11201301
RAM, DDR3L 1600 8GB, Sharetronic, SM322NW08IAF         |  11201514

Hey, I bought Lenovo y510p laptop like 2 weeks ago. It is the SLI version of the y510p. The laptop worked just fine when I was playing with it, ran CSGO and Skyrim on Ultra settings over 60 fps. Couple days ago, my friend broke my charger, and I went to Walmart to buy a new one. I bought the Duracell charger which is 90 watts and it was compatible with my laptop. Then I plugged it in, and tried to play csgo but the fps was like from 5 to 15. I have no idea how this happened. I also took off my battery and just tried to play it without it and just charging the laptop, and when I opened csgo the laptop shut down. I already made virus tests and there was nothing in the viruses. Please help me if you can, I really wouldn't want to send this to the warranty since it's brand new and propably gonna take atleast a month. Thank you already!

A:Lenovo y510p slow fps

My guess is that the Charger may not be compatible with that laptop....90watts yes but has it got the correct DC output.

Also you didn't say how your original charger got broken. like was it attached to the laptop at the time?

What could be happening is..when you plug the new power supply in it is not the correct power your PC expects so it disregards it and runs off the battery at lower everything. As when you take the battery out it will not run at all. Easy place for damage is where the power plug goes into the laptop.

Hello Lenovo users! I own a lenovo y510p for 2 years now and I haven't had any problems since last week. There was a Windows 10 creators update.. After that update my laptop dramatically slowed down. It keeps overheating and overloading . In task manager the ''Disk'' tab is always at 99% and my CPU usage is verry high. When I open Google Chrome for example it just freezes and there is nothing I can do . I can only hold the power on button so it could shut down . Even ctrl + alt + del doesn't work . When I open a game .. let's say Minecraft , It doesn't freeze but it lags soo much. There is a drastical FPS drop , and that is happening  evry 5-7 seconds. As it si on 60fps , it drops to 15 , to 5 , then goes up to 20 .. 30 .. You'll say that minecraft is heavy .. well , I play Live For Speed , which is heavy like super mario .. The same happens there too. I think that my entire system gets jagged...  Is this a virus or the windows 10 creators update is causing this? Is there a way that I can clean my system and get it fixed?P.S.  Everything in my pc lags , all the folders , all the movies etc. --------Lenovo y510p notebookCPU: ntel Core i7-4700MQ   2.40 GHz - 3.40GhzGPU: NVIDIA GeForce GT 755M (2GB GDDR5)Memory:  8 GB

I bought one of the first Lenovo IdeaPad y510p. Having a dual gpu made for a lot of gaming fun. Yesterday, the room filled up with the smell of an electrical burn. I checked the underside the Lenovo. It had been hotter. I heard workers outside my window and figured that the smell may come from them. A few minutes later very thick smoke came out of the left air vent and made a column in the air. I quickly pulled out the power cord and battery. Luckily, the house is still standing. I understand that electronics eventually fail. Yet, this seems unsafe and dangerous. What if I weren't in the room to act quickly? There should be some way to report this. The support page to send a message has been down with an under maintenance message for days.

Can any of you guys suggest any tips to correct this?  Thanks in advance  EDIT: Does installing the OS on the 24 GB SSD affect the gaming performance in any way? My SSD got damaged and there is no SSD in it currently. The is only the HDD.

My Lenovo Y510p isnt working, Im on my phone but ill show a video of whats happenning: https://youtu.be/d1nhfJ3PUZ0So my laptop will only turn on for a few seconds before shutting back off and then trying tobshut back off. I cant go into bios, it still crashes after a few seconds. Also a weird thing is itll be stuck in that restarting loop until i plug my charger in and then it just wont turn on at all? It first happened a few months ago but i took it to the shop and they said i was working just fine. Worked for another month, and then did it again, and then it lasted yet another month now doing thia again. The same thing every time. I had it worling yesterday, somehow it just started spontaneously working, and then after shutting it off today it started to loop again. I dont know whats wrong with it??

Hi!I've got my Y510P quite long time and 4GB of RAM is too little this days.Also there is i7-4700 MQ, Intel HD 4600.I'm thinking about upgrading RAM to 8GB. And here is a problem, better buy one 8GB or buy 4GB to a second slot.If I would buy 4GB it's the best to get the same as one installed right? What RAM is it? If I would buy 8GB what RAM do You recommend? Thakns for any help!Konrad

A:Lenovo Y510P Upgrade from 4GB RAM.

Hi WielkiOn,
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
Your laptop model can support up to 16GB of DDR3L 1600 MHz x 2 slots.
Depending on your need (applications and multi process needed to run at the same time) if 8 GB is enough for you.
 
You can likewise run with 4GB + 8GB for 12 GB to try.
Open task manager while you have all your needed task running and check performance tab for the memory consumed. Imagine if you double the memory (assuming that you would go for a cheaper 4GB + 4GB = 8GB total). By this you can approximate your current need to decide if you go for 4GB or 8GB upgrade. 
 
Listed on the hardware manual are the OEM recommended ram page 87.

 
Hope this helps answer your query.
 
Regards

Hi, I was wondering if the Y510p was limited to only 4th gen. i7 processors. I'm thinking about getting an updgrade, but I want to make sure what i get will work with the socket.

As you can see in the pictures, although the SLI is active, the 2.Error Card seems to be 'disabled'. When I play games like Gta V and it looks ALT + TAB and still looks 'disabled'. All programs run on the 1st card. Even if I open the game, it runs again on the 1st card. 2. On the Scorecard, there is 'no application running on this GPU.' says. I already have FPS problems in the games. How to solve this SLI problem?

Hello, I have a Lenovo y510p sli laptop for 3 weeks now, and from monitoring my cpu and graphics card temperatures via HWMonitor, Cpu reaches a max of 90 degrees celcius and Graphics card reaches 96 degrees max (Averaging 90 C) IN ONLY A FEW MINUTES when I am playing certain games. Games such as Bioshock Infinite causes laptop to lag from throttling I think. This temperature seems to be too high, is this normal? When I alt tab from game, temperatures drop rapidly.  *Fans work great. Fan speed starts to increase, and can be heard when I start playing games.I know the Lenovo y510p has overheating problems, from other users, but I was wondering what I can do to help reduce temperatures. I am using a laptop cooler underneath as well. Is this caused by a bad heatsink?I bought this laptop 3 weeks agoThings I have tried, but temperatures seems to be still too high.:1. Stop overclocking by changing power management options to max 99%2. Fps cap and vsync during gaming3. Msi Afterburner- reducing Clock speed4. Using Dust Removal Tool5. Updated latest graphics driver5. Was going to try undervolting, but RMclock only works for dual core processors?**Changing the thermal paste would be my last resort as this laptop is very new, and since I have never done it before, I am afraid to mess up my laptop and break warrenty** Specs:Intel Core i7-4700MQ 2.4 GHz overclocked to 3.2Ghz (Manufacturer max temp: 100 degrees C): DDR3-RAM PC3-1280:: Graphics card:2 x NVIDIA GeFor...

A:Lenovo y510p Overheating Fix?

temperatures for this type of laptop is normal to be from 50 to 90 while in gaming it is normal that it is at 70-90 which is really normal and trottling thing could be due to your laptop has dropped from charger to battery so make sure you got a 170W charger and not a 120W one since if it's a 120W it will kill 2nd gpu once it begins to run on battery so thats why make sure charger is an 170W not 120W  Also overclocking cpu will give it even higher temps since it is at a speed that it's not meant to be, which i mean if you got a 2.4GHz that can do 2.8GHz max and you overclock it ot 3.4Ghz then it will have 0.60GHz speed more which then makes cpu work harder than it should and it also shortens the cpu life as well when using overclocking speed.

Just wanted to let others know about the SLI Graphics Card. All of a sudden my pc shutdown while viewing a Youtube video. I smelled some weird burning smell coming from the computer. Wouldn't boot, eventually I pulled the second graphics card on the right side of the pc. Looked at it and there was major burn spot on it. Started up the PC and it was fine without the graphics card. There must be some sort of overheating issue and they are defective. I rarely play games on this pc and this occured simply watching a youtube video which seems really odd. I do have two monitors hooked up to the system.

Hi Guys, I have Lenovo Y510P with Windows 10 and i recently installed a new MyDigitalSSD 256GB in the M.2 slot (instead of the 24GB cache ssd) and i'm using the ssd as my main drive for OS and programs. I'm getting reandom freezes during regular operation, I can still move my mouse duriing those freezes but that's it, it won't unfreeze unless I do an hard reset.. Those freezes happen only when the OS is running from the SSD, when I'm I run a copy of that OS from the HDD, it doesn' happen ad everything works. Before installing the ssd, every cache software was uninstalled and i even tried a fresh new clean win10 install on the ssd but the freezes still happens. I read and tried LOTS of solutions (checking for errors in the ssd, disabling SLI, disabling LPM, etc.) but nothing helps. I'm really desperate for a solution, Doesn any one has an idea on what is the problem?

what i understood is that slot you got there isnt meant for a big SSD :/ so thats probably why os freezes some times it's a cache slot meant for small sized ssd cache drives if understood it right.

Hi all, I just fixed my y510p from video artifacts due to a loose video cable connection, but when I put everything back together, my trackpad no longer works, and in device manager, I had an unknown device listed that was not there before. Anyone else had this problem, or have any ideas on how to fix it? I thought it may have been a cable that came loose when I was taking the computer apart, but I checked the connections to the trackpad and they're all good. Still not working though. Thanks in advance!

Hello lenovo community, Today my new 128GB SSD arrived (I believe it is M.2), I installed it into my laptop and then went to my disk management and did all the steps. Now I can see the SSD in my computer next to the rest of my pertitions and usb drives.https://gyazo.com/e22d0006a9b863a7985611dfd3c66bc4.png I would like to clean install windows on my SSD so that my laptop runs faster and I will be installing a few important programs on the SSD too later on. I am just not sure how to do this. Currently I have windows 10 Pro and the windows is activated with a digital license linked to my Microsoft account. And after I do install my windows on my SSD, how can I set the default folder for all my software to be installed in? I want to have them automatically be installed in a folder in my hard drive except for the few applications that I will manually put inside my SSD. Thank you in advance for all the help!
