Questions about Temps for ALL Lenovo Y510p Users!!

Q: Questions about Temps for ALL Lenovo Y510p Users!!

I have a Lenovo Y510p with 2x GT 755m cards in SLI. When playing games like WoW the MAX GPU temps on Card 1 reach 90°C. On Card 2 85°C.At this point the game starts to stop responding. The screen will go black for about 1 second andthe laptop's fans will slow down for just a moment before the game resumes and the fans go back up.This will happen pretty much any time the temps hit 90°C again. I have a Notepal U3 laptop cooler with 1 fan on each GPU intake slot and 1 on the center of the laptop.I have also repasted the CPU & BOTH GPUs with Arctic Cooling Silver 5.I have modded the bottom case of my laptop to allow more air into the laptop.The BIOS is also modified (so are the GPU BIOSes) To stop the crashing I tried upping the voltage on both cards by 012.5mV - 025.0mV. This didn'twork at all. Games always seem to stop responding when temps get to 90°C. However my laptopshouldn't even techinically be getting this hot in the first place. I'd rather max temps to sitaround 80C. This laptop has always run pretty hot and I've always felt like I got a lemon as others haveexplained to me that their laptops don't get anywhere near as hot as this. As such I have some questions for other Y510p users: 1. What are your MAX temps whilst doing some extensive gaming?2. Have you repasted your CPU & GPU?3. Have you modded your Y510p fan intakes to allow for more air?4. Do you use a cooler?5. Do any of the games you try and play ever stop responding? Also if anyone has any tips or anything, I am all ears. However at this point I don't expect thispiece of crap to really do any better as I feel I have already done everything I can do make it runas good as it can. Thanks.

Will the laptop charge and work like normal if I use the 120w charger instead of a 170w one?  Or do I need the 170w charger whether I want to game or not? I dont want to remove my SLI card.

Firtst question has to do with or should i say what is VBAT? What does it mean and what is its significances. When i get a reading of 2.03 or so my computer runs fine, if it goes to 3.2 or so it seems to act up and sometimes lock up.

Second question, what temperture should my computer run at, i have cannot seem to find a answer to this question anywhere else. At the moment it runs about 42 to 44 celsius, with the sides of my tower off and a regular fan blowing on it. If i turn the fan off the temp rises to 52 to 56 celsious, which i believe is to high.
 

A:two questions that need answers: VBAT and Temps

yeah that is a little high.

as for VBAT? something to do with the PSU and/or the CMOS battery

Ok, I have alot of questions here so bare with me please...

1) First of all, aren't case fans meant to blow hot air OUT of the case? or are they to blow air into the case? When I am installing a fan in a case, I always get confused which way to put it. So here is one of my questions: does the air blow toward the direction the "smooth side" of the fan is facing , or the "back side" of the fan is facing.

I really need to know because if I am doing this wrong, it is probably causing my case to be a lot hotter than it should be.

Sometimes I put my hand in front of a fan to see which direction it is blowing, but on some of the fans I can feel the air blowing both directions, so i am really confused here.
#2 here is my main problem, so if you answer any of my questions, have it be this one!
2) OK, my second question deals with the CPU FAN on one of my two computers. The computer has an AMD XP 2100+, ecs k7s5a pro mobo, 128mb sdram, 32mb video card, 60gb hd, cdrw, and dvd rom drive, with WINDOWS XP PRO installed and running. (only has a 230W MAX power supply, is that too low?)

The CPU (2100+) has the heatsink and fan installed on it that came with the retail package. The problem is, that when I turn on my computer, the cpu fan speed is reading between 1800 and 2200 RPM (which is way too slow for a small cpu fan as this one is). So what I do is gently touch the middle of the cpu fan while it is spinning, and then let go, and the cpu fan speed speeds up... Read more

Dear all, I have owned the Lenovo y510p since 2013. About a year ago, I frequently got blue-screens when playing games and sometimes, during usage of microsoft office. The proble resolved by disabling the GPU, but as a result i am now unable to play games. Can the GPU be replaced? The rest of the laptop is still working fine.Thank you in advance

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.

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.

A:RAM upgrade for Lenovo Y510p

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
RAM, DDR3L 1600 8GB, Micron, MT16KTF1G64HZ-1G6E1   | 11201304

I hope the above information helped you. 
Please feel free to post in Lenovo Community Forums if you have any further queries!

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

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.

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

Dear Lenovo family! I have bought this laptop (Y510P) around the end of December 2013. I have just decided to write these after long time of having issues with gaming. Also tooday I have just changed my Hard drive to SSD with booting windows 10 64bit from scrach hoping that it would all come to an end however it did not. -I have updated all the software, drivers etc. I have uploaded a RAR folder including my Nvidea system information, speccy system screen shot and all the logs from event viewer.  Now here is the problem I am having. When I start playin a game (For instance CS:GO) at first it is all good:-As soon as I run the game SLI gets activated.-Fans starts getting faster and both graphic cards getting warmer.-After 10-15 minues of gameplay, game freezes, screen gets minimized for 3-4 seconds and eveything freezess then games screen comes back and another 1-2 seconds game freezes then starts back on.- Problem repeates after another 10-15 minutes of game play. What  could be the problem?Could it be CPU speed is not properly working?Could it be because of the Graphic cards? I will be waiting for your help! Thank you all!

Hello, Lenovo community, I have been desiring to do a memory upgrade for my Lenovo Y510p, specifically from 8gb to 16gb. I have one question about the memory speed of the 16gb. Crucial gives me two 16gb options, and here are some differences (other than price): option 1; DDR3 PC3-12800 ? CL=11 (1600 MT/s)option 2: DDR3 PC3-14900 ? CL=13 (1866MT/s) My question is: does the memory speed affect the laptop in any way? I looked across the internet and seem to not find an answer.

Hello!The story begins 1 year ago, when I decided that I don't want my Windows OS and I want Linux. So I tried to install Ubuntu and installed it on its own, so no Windows anymore on my HDD. After that point my USB 3.0 and HDMI ports didn't work. I've tried everything on my Linux distribution(Arch Linux) and nothing works, dmesg -w doesn't even react in any way when I connect anything to any of the ports. I installed recently Windows 10 and the ports still don't work.In both Linux and Windows can't be the drivers fault, nor loading different modules in Linux.Does someone, who really understands Lenovo hardware know something of this? I've already given up, so I just want to understand what I broke during the installation of Linux. Thanks in advance!

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!

Hi Kevinnor, 
 
Greetings.
 
You can call in Lenovo Norway instead.

Idea/Lenovo Essential:09:00 ? 18:00 Monday ? Friday
 
Likewise, use your serial number here to check if email support option is available for your region and model.
 
Seems that the those detected errors are with the Intel Centrino WLAN card.
You can try to run individual diagnostics to verify if there is an issue and likewise updating the drivers for the wireless card can also help if needed.
 
Hope this help answer your query.
 
Regards

Hello everyone, I have a problem with my Lenovo y510p model, recently it started making a weird behavior when I power it on. When I try to start the machine using the normal start button sometimes it goes into the un-dusting cycle (similar to that of Energy management), it finishes it and then after few seconds I can power it on normally. Sometimes it goes into 2 or 3 consecutive un-dusting cycles before I can power it on. It's really starting to become annoying and want to know what it's doing the behavior. I tried powering the machine without HDD to see if it's a software related problem and it does the same behavior, also tried removing the second video card with the same result.

Hi folks I'm new to the forums to please excuse me. I'm currently posting from my phone so when my laptop comes on I'll attach the debug file.

Basically I set my laptop to sleep instead of shutting it down and when I went back to resume my work (about 20 hours later) it was running very slow.

I was searching for my 'Calculator' but made a typo so I tried backspacing the letter but nothing happened. Chrome (which I had opened at the time) was unresponsive and so was my taskbar.

I waited a while to see if anything would happen but nothing did so I forced shut down.

I left it off for almost a half hour and when I put it on I got that error 'Unmountable_Boot_Volume' and it needed to restart and so it did but then the error came up again this time it did an automatic repair which lasted a few seconds then it was diagnosing which lasted a few seconds and then I got the following message:

Automatic Repair
Your PC did not start correctly.
Press restart to restart your PC which might sometimes fix the problem. You can also press Advance options to try other options to repair your PC.

I clicked restart and it did.. I got a black screen for a minute or two but I got to log in. But once again everything was moving slow so as the start menu seemed to be working I shut down the laptop. (It's currently off)

Can anyone assist me with this problem?
It would be really good if I can actually find out what's really wrong with my laptop.
Thanks.

P.S. See attachment

Hello 8-forums.

I'm posting on behalf of my little brother since he isn't the sharpest when it comes to computers. Today his computer started freezing and crashing out of nowhere at completely random times. I couldn't pinpoint an activity he was doing which might have caused it.

On top of that a pop-up kept coming up on his screen about his screen driver having crashed and has been restored. I happen to have the same laptop and I've had this problem for a week or 2 too, but nothing happens when it shows up on my screen (unlike his, where it crashes the computer). His screen now also has blue matrix-like lines all over his screen as a result of todays crashes.

I asked him to send the Zip-file from the DM log collector tool. He only had a BSoD once and he didn't notice the error code. The rest were freezes (forced to restart) and crashes (no BSoD screen).

Hope you can help find a solution to my brothers problem.
Regards Jens and Walther

Hi Snejxjens,

Welcome to the 8forums.

Please remove some files to increase the free space to at least 10-15%.
Every partition needs at least 10-15% free space so Windows can do its thing in the background.
