Y500 Disassembled (Pictures)

Recommended Posts

Great additions to the laptop. I am just wondering if it is possible to eliminate the heat problem by a larger heatsink and if a larger heatsink will fit?

The fan with increased airflow will do the trick. Larger diameter but the same height. Suggestions of certain type, anybody?

Has anyone checked if 650m and 750m has the same hestsink. If 750m has better heatsink maybe you could use the other heatsink?

It's the exact same.

If the issue comes back, like it did for me after 2 weeks. Here is the final solution.

For me, it was a grounding issue, and I think it is the same with the keyboard. The touchpad feels great after relocating the silver tape. Very responsive, and I have the multi gesture stuff enabled, everything works good.

The red circle indicates where I've move the silver tape too, had to angle it a little but now it is grounded directly onto the top aluminum case as opposed to the painted plastic (conductive?). I've been trying to get it to fail ever since and so far it is working perfectly.

So, I posted that in the Lenovo support forum but basically, I just relocated the silver tape and it's been working great. The touchpad has never felt this good.

This is the Elan touchpad. It was one of the earlier builds, got mine back in November.

In the picture you have of the silver tape, you are saying you moved the silver tape from the green circle to where the red circle is? I assume you used the silver tape because it needs to conduct?

Thank you for posting the y500...does anyone with a y400 have a similar pictures? Or is the y500 almost identical and y400 pics are unnecessary? Thanks!

Hey, thanks for the pics. SO what did You do to fix the touch pad? Did You replace it? I guess You had the old version of the touchpad?

on a desktop I had 2-4 degree improvment in temps after changing thermal paste, I think that it is too much effort to change it in notebook unless you have to dissasamble it in other reason

The Ultrabay fan module doesn't lower temperatures at all.

Agreed with that. Some users in other forum said that the Ultrabay fan instead sucked the cool air that is needed by the main fan. It doesn't cool anything, as the exhaust air are not even hot....

Desktops are less likely to suffer overheating issues, especially compared to laptop with a subpar cooling design like the Y500. Repasting my Y500 dropped CPU temp by 15C and GPU temp by 10C. It meant not having to choose between running the CPU at full speed yet close to thermal shutdown all the time or throttling it so that it wouldn't overheat.

Awesome pics and thank you for the link to the Y400 / Y500 disassembly video! I've been wanting to go through my Y510P and redo all of the thermal paste, but have been a bit gun-shy without a guide :-)

Would I have to disassemble the entire laptop if I wanted to get to the heatsink?

I wish I would have read this earlier. I just removed the back of mine less than 2 hours ago before reading this post and broke off the top left plastic tab. Great instructions though!

Once have i also disassembled my y500 'cause the left speaker above 70 percent of volume gave disturbing resonant with the top cover at 400~600 Hz. As it turns out, this is due to the power button. I just had to fix it some special glue, and now i can enjoy the full volume! :)

Caveat for those who disassemble their Y500s- when you pry off the keyboard make sure not to pry the superficial keyboard cover, but put pressure on the deeper part instead. Otherwise the plastic that goes around the keys gets its tabs broken and isn't as locked in once reassembled.

Hello.I have the following issue with my y500 -

And before i disassemble my laptop I want to ask if there is anything else except the 4 pin connector for the speakers that may be causing my problem.I hope that i can fix this problem by myself :)

Thank you.

      Required items:
      1.) Lenovo u310 (I have a Core i3 - Ivy Bridge, 8GB RAM)
      2.) 65CN99WW unwhitelisted.
      3.) eGPU (I used a EVGA GTX 750 Ti from another computer I had).
      4.) EXP GDC mPCIe Edition adapter (got from eBay - banggood seller).
      5.) ATX power supply (I used a 600W PSU from another computer I had).
      6.) USB wireless.
      7.) External monitor, keyboard, and mouse.
       
      Steps:
      1.) Obtain and install a unwhitelisted BIOS. If you are unable to obtain a unwhitelist BIOS, I think it might be possible to bypass it with Tech Inferno Fan's Setup 1.x (may need confirmation as I haven't used it myself yet.)
      2.) Shutdown computer and remove all USB devices, ethernet cables, power cables, card reader cards.
      3.) Remove mPCIe wireless card and detach antennas.
       
       
      4.) Attach EXP GDC external mPCIe cable to the former wireless slot and screw down.
       
       
      5.) Attach HDMI end of the mPCIe cable adapter to the EXP GDC device.
       
       
      6.) Attach graphics card to the EXP GDC device (I moved my laptop off the desk and onto the side shelf to make room on the desk for the monitor/keyboard/mouse).
       
       
      7.) Using the power cable adapters that came with the EXP GDC device, I hooked in my ATX power supply's 20 pin and CPU 4 pin cables. Then hooked the other end (8 pin) into the EXP GDC device. My EVGA 750 Ti also required that I use an additional PCIe power cable (6 pin) in the top of the card.
       
       
       
       
       
      8.) Then I attached my misc devices (HDMI monitor, USB keyboard/mouse/wireless adapter), and hooked in my PSU and powered it on (below is image of final product, also moved HDMI cable out of the way).
       

       
      9.) Power on your computer and let it install the standard VGA drivers and then install your drivers (I didn't have to go in the BIOS for any graphics settings, which it doesn't have anyways, nor did I have to disable iGPU in Device Manager before the card was added).
       
      Extra Info:
      I found that most games will play on med settings with about 45 FPS with this particular card.
      BDO: Upscale on - Anti Aliasing on - SSAO off - med settings.
      Skyrim: Med-High settings.
      Fallout 4: Med settings.

      If someone wants upgrade Wi-Fi card and remove witelist, or unlock hidden additional menus and settings, or unlocked vbios for overclock NVIDIA card, then you can post your request in this thread.

      It's for Lenovo Z710, Z510 only!

      Hi,
       
      I need help in fixing my Thinkpad.

      I just got a T440p yesterday. It was working perfectly until the following:

      I reinstalled Windows and then I installed Vantage.

      I installed all the latest drivers.
      I also choose to install the bios update. The bios update ran in Windows and it asked me to restart. After restarting, the screen was blank. I tried powering it off and on and I saw the Thinkpad logo but after that the screen was blank.

      I tried powering on and off again and there's no Thinkpad logo now and the screen is just blank with the green power on. No sound, no nothing.


      Here's what I tried:
      Pressing the power button 10 times and then holding it for 30 seconds. Unplugged and battery is detachted Detached the CMOS battery and the reattached it Removed the ram, harddisk and optical disk drive. Attached the battery and inserted the charger. I turned it on and there was a couple of beeps Tried pressing FN+R and created a bootable USB I'd like to ask: How do I fix this? What do I need to do?
      Can I reflash the bios in some other way? Do I need to buy a new motherboard? Will this solve the issue? It's my first thinkpad and I'm really excited but I was bummed out that this happened. Can you please help me?

      Thanks in advance!

      Hello !
      I tried a tutorial on the forum to remove the supervisor password on a X260 thinkpad but the winbond 25Q128FVPQ chip is not recognized with the programmer CH341A and ASprogramer (does not detect automatically and not manually). Plugged into the motherboard with a soic8.

      Can you help me with detection?
      Can I find the password with the software or do I have to write it?
       
      Thank you so much !!!

      To install the unlocked bios, I prepared and booted a freedos usb. I start the installation by typing flash.bat but every time I get the following error: Error 28: Protected Range Registers are currently set by BIOS, preventing flash Access. Please contact the target System BIOS vendor for an option to disable Protected Range Registers.
      How can i solve this problem ?
