Lenovo G510 VT-d support

Q: Lenovo G510 VT-d support

Hello, I have a Lenovo G510 with i7 4200 MQ processor. Unfortunately, this processor does not support VT-d. I wonder if I can upgrade my processor to, let's say, i7 4910 MQ. I have read somewhere that they are still in one family. Or if there is somehow a way to enable VT-d within my current laptop. Thanks!

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hello, Since two months or so I can't use my Lenovo G510 properly, because it keeps crashing and acting strange. I updated the drivers as far as I know and the harddrive scan told me theres nothing wrong with my system. I did a virus check and couldn't find anything. I get blue screens with a diversity of errors, the system sometimes deletes my games, programs or bootes in some sort of "safe mode" in which my laptop looks like it has been taken back to the fabric configuration and has deleted everything (after restarting it's back to my current desktop , and I get all my programs and files back like nothing happened), and there are times in which my system won't boot at all. I start, it loads 5 seconds and turns off. I am clueless and at the point of throwing the thing through the window. I really hope someone here can tell me what might be wrong and what to do to fix this problem. I made some photos of the crashes and put one of them in here so you can see what those errors are. It's dutch, I'm sorry for that but the text says: "There's a problem with this computer and it has to be rebooted. Errordata will be collected, then the computer will be restarted." Sincerely,Graciousgirl.

Hello.The problem is that when I try to shut down the system it seems to work. Windows 8.1 exits, the screen turns off but the fan is still working, and probably so is the HDD. It does not matter how long I wait, nothing changes. The only way to turn it off ultimately is to hold POWER button but this will damage my HDD.I hope you guys have any solution for this issue.Thank you in advance.

I have to have the headphones plugged into the audio jack BEFORE I start the laptop up just so that it sees them, if I for whatever reason disconnect the headphones while the laptop is on, it will switch to speakers and will refuse to detect the headphones again.

This is what I see:

The only way to get the laptop to detect them again is by restarting while the jack is plugged.
I've tried deleting the audio drivers, but Windows did NOT reinstall them upon restart, so I had to install them again via backup.

A:Lenovo G510 ignores 3.5mm headphones

did you use any of those 'deep uninstaller' programs to get rid of the drivers before reinstalling them?
tried a different version of the drivers yet?

if it isn't a software problem, then it sounds as if there's an electricity problem with the sensing circuit.
as if there's not enough electricity after the computer is booted up all the way to execute the switching between the speakers & headphones.

there might be some small drain from the rest of the motherboard even though there isn't enough for the circuit to work.
your motherboard might be dieing faster than it is supposed to.
if you can't get the software portion to work, might wanna get it to an electrical repair shop.
but, i wonder if the operating system has any files associated with the switching between speakers & headphones that work in combination with the audio drivers.
(because then you'd be trying new drivers all day into the night & it won't help until the operating system files are fixed)

I almost never shut my laptop down completely. Instead, I set my laptop up to sleep while not in use. Recently, there have been several occasions when I would attempt to wake it up and the webcam light and the lights on the front of the laptop come on, but the screen would not. In these instances, I would push the power button to put the laptop back to sleep, close the laptop, reopen it, and hit the power button to wake it up again. Most times, the screen would come back on, however, more recently I would have to repeat these steps multiple times before the screen would come back on. Now, the screen won't come on at all, no matter how many times I turn it off completely and retry. You might note that the external HDMI connection DOES still work and everything seems to work fine through an external monitor (just not my laptop screen), so I am wondering if this means that the screen has gone bad and if this means the gpu is okay. After poking around on these forums, I attempted severaI fixes, but none seem to have worked. I shined a flashlight (or "torch" for europeans..) at an angle to see if the screen is just extremely dimly lit, but I've verified that it is completely black with no activity there. I tried removing the battery, holding the power button for 20 seconds and rebooting--no dice. I even removed and reseated the RAM and checked the ribbon connection to the screen. I saw somewhere that I might need to reset the BIOS, however I can't seem to get to the BIOS usin... Read more

However, I can't find any touchpad options in the mouse section. I know there should be a tab called 'device settings' there, but it's simply missing. Device manager also only detects my USB mouse under mouse and other pointing devices.

A:Lenovo G510 removal of dust

Welcome to the Lenovo Community !
 
According to your model's User Guide the replacement of the hard drive, memory or wireless card is considered CRU activities.  In otherwords those parts can be serviced by the consumer which means you can also remove the back cover without fear of voiding warranty.  Since the fan is now accessible when the cover is removed.... have fun cleaning.  If you use compressed air to clean,  remember to use short bursts of air as prolong blasts may damage the fan's bearings.
 
For your reference, here is a link to that User Guide......

You can try to isolate if the issue was due to graphics chip and driver or localized in the LCD and cable. 
Connect an external monitor and see if the lines are there.

Hello dear Lenovo community, I've been having a problem regarding an HDD caddy for about two months now. After deciding I wanted to make my G510 a little bit faster, I bought a Kingston 240GB SSD (don't think the brand is needed) to put instead of the SSHD I previously had. Of course 240 GB is not that much. I only wanted it for the Windows partition. So, I also bought an HDD caddy to put it instead of the ODD (Optical Disk Drive). So far so good. Everything came and I made the swap. The SSD inside the original place of my SSHD and then I removed the ODD to put the HDD caddy with the SSHD in it. The problem is, it is not recognized when booting. The laptop just hangs/freezes at the Lenovo logo. I tried to switch places (SSHD in its original place and SSD in HDD caddy) and to my suprise, both of the drives were recognized, but I could not format my SSD and access it whatsoever. I discovered a workaround where I put the ODD tray back in, start Windows from the SSD, then while booted and loaded, I take the ODD tray out and insert the HDD caddy with the SSHD. Then, Intel Rapid Storage recognizes it and my drives are correctly shown. The problem is when I shutdown the laptop and turn it back on, I go back to my first problem, which is freezing Lenovo logo. The only way I can work with this, is if I just restart or put the laptop in Stand by. Even when I put it in Stand-by, sometimes the SSHD gets disconnected and I have to do the ODD tray thing again.

Solved!
Go to Solution.

A:Adding SSD Hard in Lenovo G510

hi shanalikhan,
 
Looking at the bottom, the G510 only has one HDD bay.
 - Link to picture
 
In this case, it's still possible to add an SSD using the following options:
 
Option 1:
- Remove the stock 1TB HDD and replace it with an SSD
- Use a 2.5" USB SATA Enclosure to convert the 1T HDD into an external drive.
- To install Windows on the SSD, you can either clean install a retail copy or migrate the OS from the HDD to the SSD.
 
Guides:
- OS Migration (using Paragon Backup & Recovery Home)
- Disk Cloning (using Macrium Reflect)
 
Option 2:
- Remove the ODD and replace it with an HDD caddy. From this thread, there are users who have successfully done this procedure. The HDD caddy that was used is this item.
- To install the OS, you can follow the same guide above to either migrate or clone HDD to the SSD and make the SSD as the boot drive.

I've worked on my neighbors laptop a few times before and never had an issue getting it back up to snuff. Now I'm having a heck of a time getting it to stop freezing and slowing down.
 
Specs
Windows 8.1 (x64)
Intel i5 Processor
6 GB RAM
1TB HDD
 
I've run adwarecleaner, jrt, and installed Ccleaner. I also have Avast Free installed which I run concurrently with Malwarebytes.  There are minimal programs on startup; no malicious installed software.  Windows updates and device drivers are up-to-date.
 
It will run fine for 5 to 10 minutes and then completely bogs down.  The cursor will actually freeze on the screen.  Proccessor usage hardly goes over 50% if ever and memory usage stays below 40% even after running a while.  Chrome and Firefox both crash often enough even after resetting and reinstalling them.
 
I'm not sure what else to check/do besides a reinstall of windows but I'm hoping I'm just forgetting something obvious.  I'd rather not reinstall if I can help it.

Right after re-installing Windows 8 on a Lenovo G510, I updated the BIOS to version 79CN50WW (V3.09) with the file which is available on this website. Unfortunately, the update crashed right in the middle of the process and leaves me with a broken BIOS. After booting the notebook, I get the following messages: lenovo logo"EFI Nentwork 0 for IPv4 (F8-A9-63-33-28-09)" with an [OK]-Button. If I hit OK, I'll get..."No bootable device -- Please restart system"If I restart the system, I'll see the following messages: lenovo logo"EFI Nentwork 0 for IPv4 (F8-A9-63-33-28-09)" with an [OK]-Button. If I hit OK, I'll get..."Default Boot Device Missing or Boot Failed.Insert Recovery Media and Hit any keyThen Select 'Boot Manager' to choose a new Boot Device or to Boot Recovery Media"If I hit [OK] again, the Boot Manager shows up with a list which has two entries which are:EFI Network 0 for IPv4 (F8-A9-63-33-28-09)EFI Network 0 for IPv6 (F8-A9-63-33-28-09)Whatever option I choose from these both, nothing changes. How can I recover the (previous) BIOS or get the notebook to work again properly?
