Hello, I?m trying to get my Ideapad to boot from USB to upgrade to Windows 10 and install a new SSD but there are no bios options to do this update. I am currently running InsydeH2O rev 3.5. Are there BIOS updates for the Y570 or any way around this please? Thanks 

A:Ideapad Y570 Boot from USB

Hi Rychlr,
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
I am not sure installing Windows 10 is a good idea for this model since it is not listed compatible for it. Challenges would generally be in the drivers as there were no certified ones made for it similar to the discussion here. 
 
Others did manage to install it similar to the steps here that you can try aside from considering the partition style.  
 
Take time to review the links and I hope you can decide on what works best for you.
 
Regards

Hello!I am new to this community, so if I post somewhere where I?m not supposed to, or do anything else, please forgive me.???????Here is my problem. One day I was just playing on my laptop (Minecraft), then I just turned off my laptop and turned it off. Next day start use my laptop start game and it was very laggy. I checked my graphics settings and at the bottom it said ?Intel HD Graphics?. So of course I closed Minecraft went to NVidia panel to put Minecraft as a program that needs to use NVidia GPU and the panel said to me:?NVidia panel could not start; No NVidia GPU detected? or something like that.I tried everything that I found online: reinstalling drivers for GPU (deleted drivers, when installing could not install because I have no NVidia GPU), holding down my power button for a minute with no battery and charger, and even tried OneKey Recovery (reinstalled Windows completely) nothing helped.Anyone who knows what?s going on with my laptop please help. I don?t want to play games with Intel HD Graphics By the way I have the model with 4GB of RAM (model 20091)Thank you to anyone who read this post.

Help, i still beginner with RAM / Memory something like that, guys can help me what RAM Best for Gaming for my Notebook IdeaPad Y570 ?

i only found these :

4gb (2x2gb) ddr3sodimm

8gb (2x4gb) ddr3sodimm

there's something else ? maybe for Corsair, or other good brand ...
Thanks...

A:Can Help with Recommended RAM for Lenovo IdeaPad Y570?

Corsair is good and has postive overall satisfaction rating.

I recommend to go 8 GB since on some occassions (e.g. 20 - 30 tabs of web browsing + virtual machine running), I can actually exceed 4 GB of RAM usage. With 8 GB of RAM, you can also run 2 or more virtual machines without slowing down your Y570. IMO 8 is the sweet spot (enough for most tasks), but if you are doing something radical like using a RamDisk or Adobe After Effects with many layers, you can opt for 16 GB RAM which is the max for Y570.

For 8 GB, you can buy this "Corsair 8GB (2x 4GB) 1333mhz PC3-10666 204-pin DDR3 SODIMM Laptop Memory Kit CMSO8GX3M2A1333C9" which is completely compatible with Y570 for a reasonable price online.

Hi I have the HP Pavilion 15-n204tx notebook, Model # F6C43PA which currently supports 2.4 G.Hz WLAN frequency only. This came originally with Ubuntu and I later upgraded it to a Win 10 64-bit version and have been using it since with Windows Right now, I am looking at upgrading the WLAN capability to support 2.4 G.Hz as well as 5 G.Hz frequencies. However, I am not sure if the WLAN module on the notebook will support it or not and I also need to know which part will be able to do it. I checked the User Guide and Service Maintainence guides yet, I am not able to confirm if the model supports the higher frequency and also, I need to know which HP part will help me achieve the desired result. Any guidence or help will be much appreciated.

I recently purchased a Y570 from Lenovo and have had it for about a month with it working great. I use my laptop for World of Warcraft and I've been very happy with its preformance so far. 2 days ago while searching a news website my computer crashed for no reason with a bsod titled "Bad pool header" upon restart I did the repair option, it went threw its thing for a bit told me to restart so I did then got hit with a bsod "memory manager" upon restart this time I started in safe mode and ran chkdsk.

It ran threw its whole thing had me restart I did and everything seemed ok. I put in a dvd watched about 2 hrs out it then it froze into a bsod which happened so fast I couldn't see the error message and restarted. Since then I have gotten tons of bsod's with either "memory manager" "bad pool header" or "page fault in nonpage area". Its gotten so bad if I start up normally it crashes. If I try the repair option it crashes. If I try safe mode i get to the login and it crashes. If I try safe mode sometimes it will do chkdsk which will either run all the way though restart and crash or crash upon chkdsk.

I've tried to find some help on the net and some people with similar errors have reported replacing the ram and its fixed the situation. Would this be possible for me to do? Id rather not send my laptop in if its something I can fix by replacing ram. Any thoughts? so far Lenovo has been 0 help, I tried postin... Read more

Hello everyone. I recently got my Lenovo Ideapad y470 this Friday and I love it so far. http://shop.lenovo.com/SEUILibrary/controller/e/web/LenovoPortal/en_US/catalog.workflow:category.det...
 
I got the 085525U version. My problem is that whenever I'm watching Youtube or playing any games/audio I'll get a random stuttering that lasts for .5-2 seconds. Recently today, I did some more research on it and I tested that it only seems to happen with headphones. When I used the normal speakers, it was perfectly fine. This is a minor annoyance to me and I was wondering if there was any way to fix it. I read somewhere that getting rid of Lenovo Power Manager works, but I can't seem to find it under Control Panel. I also read that playing without the battery in fixes the audio, but I have yet to test that. I'm on a wired connection by the way.
 
Thank you for your time.
 
EDIT: Nevermind, it also stutters without the headphones in. Can anyone help me solve this? Again, I find it a minor annoyance and it is tolerable to an extent, but having it stutter every now and then can get annoying, especially during gameplay.

Does this machine require a BIOS update to complete a WLAN card update successfully? Thanks!

I have finally decided to settle with XP rather than 2000. Whilst performance is slightly slower, support will be better.

Noticed that the internal wireless card is 802.11b which is slow. Can this be replaced with a newer one (n or g?) or are there motherboard limits? Is it safer/more advisable to buy an external wireless card. Can this go up to n or only g?

Will also have to buy a USB 2.0 pc card as this is only USB 1.1.

A:Portege 4000 - Can I upgrade WLAN card to Draft N?

Hi

You can not use Draft N because the 802.11 N needs 2 wires WLan antenna.
The older WLan standards use 2 wires antenna and I assume this oldie has been equipped also with 3 wires WLan antenna.

So theoretically only the 802.11 G WLan standard is possible.

As far as I know you will need a miniPCI Wlan card which supports the 802.11 standard.
So goggle for some options.

A:Lenovo Y570 CPU upgrade

hi Aleshka,
 
Welcome to the Lenovo Forums.
 
Regarding your questions:
1. From that Y570 Tech specs sheet, the unit uses the Intel HM65 Express Chipset. Doing a cross reference from the information sheet below, I recommend you follow the supported CPU in the HMM for best compatibility
 
- Mobile Intel® HM65 Express Chipset
- Y570 Tech specs sheet
- page 79-80 of the hardware maintenance manual
- Link to picture
 
Note:
If you're leaning towards an i7 CPU upgrade, you will also need to replace the motherboard (the mobo for the dual core / quadcore CPU's are different).
 
2. Looking at the benchmarks below, you should see a difference in terms of CPU processing if you jump from an i3 to an i7. In terms of overheating, just ensure you replace the thermal paste and unit should run normally.
 
Intel Core i3-2330M @ 2.20GHz benchmark
Intel Core i7-2630QM @ 2.00GHz benchmarkIntel Core i7-2820QM @ 2.30GHz benchmark
 
Doing this upgrade will require you to replace both motherboard and CPU. If you're in a tight budget, it will be practical to just buy an i7 system, otherwise, this will be a good upgrade.
 
3. The official warranty support hotline for Spain is +34 902570921 but I'm afraid they won't be able to guide you on the upgrade. You may, however, check the guide below for more info.

Hi, I recently upgraded the Storage with a WD green 120 GB M.2 SSD. Post upgradation, i installed Windows 7 into the new Drive. After dealing with several error messages and trying all workarounds the system was able to boot and became a working machine again.  I accidentally formatted the eMMC i.e. previously my C: drive and faced a lot of difficulty in making it work. However happy that finally the system is back to its normal working condition. The only problem i am facing now is, i am not able to see the 32GB eMMC card in Disk Management or in MY Computer. Though the same is visible in Advanced Troubleshooting during pre-boot (Repair your system Option) . Though the volume is visible and is empty there, its not visible inside windows explorer after windows starts. Though it doesnt affect the system's performance now, i would like to use the 32GB memory. I tried looking for the driver but not didnt find any. I am currently using Win 7 Enterprise. My next attempt would be to upgrade to Windows 10 and see if that resolves the issue.  Please Help !

Hi, I am having some issues with the wireless connection. I first tried to install the win7 Realtek WLAN Driver, the version that's on the site (Liteon_11.0.0.612 Broadcom_7.12.26.27 Realtek_2023.19.831.2015), but I get a "No Matched Wireless Device In This System" message.I installed the Intel WLAN Driver and was able to connect to the wifi but I'm not able to access the router's page on 192.168.1.1. Also when I try to access a radio stream, it takes about 10 minutes to load it and it stops playing after another 10 minutes (as if it had buffered/downloaded those 10 mins). I have another pc connected to the same network and both of these things work just fine, so it seems to be an issue only with this pc.Other than this, the web pages seem to work ok as well, no loading issues. So a couple of questions:1. Should those 2 wlan drivers (intel and realtek) be both installed or on the contrary, just one?2. If I should install the realtek driver (even if just for testing) can somenone point me to a version that works with this system?3. Could those 2 issues above be related to drivers or something else that needs installed? So far I have installed chipset, wlan, lan drivers and in the devce manager I have no unknown devices.I tried ipconfigs, pings, tracerts but didn't see anything suspicious and nothing fixed this. Could a vpn client installed on another computer that's connected through a cable to the same network influence the router? I installed one years ago and I re... Read more

Hi! I have a T430 2347CTO. The notebook has an Intel Wireless LAN (11abgn, 11bgn, 11ac) adapter installed. 1. The WLAN adapter is causing problems and I'd like to replace it, but I'm not sure what I should install instead. Any tips? 2. I'd like to install a WWAN adapter, but I'm not sure if my model has the required antenna installed. Does anybody know if it has?

I confirmed that this WLAN card will work: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Hot-Intel-Dual-Band-Wireless-AC-wifi-Card-for-Lenovo-Thinkpad-X230-T430-60Y...
 
And I also confirmed this WWAN card will work: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Gobi3000-3G-WWAN-Card-60Y3257-for-Thinkpad-X220-X230-T420-T430-W520-W530/22...
 
The WLAN card is N wireless; and the WWAN card is 3G.  The ones I linked to are shipping from the US and the best price I could find.  
 
Hope that helps!

Hello I was wondering if anyone could help me with new upgrade of wlan card. I have a HP pavilian DV7T-6100 LM414LV.My current and original card does not support 5.0 ghz wireless band, only 2.4 ghz. So i would like to change the wlan card for a dual band + bluetooth. I wanted to make sure I got the correct part so as to I wont damage my laptop. So I decided to call Hp directly for an OEM original part. The rep said I would need a 602993-001 part so I ordered it. upon doing some research online on this part number all description read it was a single band 2.4 ghz + bluetooth. So i called HP back and explained to them my concern. The second rep assured me this was correct and it was a dual band WLAN. He also told me that the part number was an old part number and their system updated to a new part number 593127-001. So i did more research on this part number but still no info on the dual band part. Can anyone help please?
