Hey members! I bought my Lenovo y510p in the summer. I tought it is excellent but after some time i realized how bad this laptop is. I paid 1300euros for this thing and now I have many problems. First is overheating. I tried to change my thermal paste with (Arctic MX-2) It's not reduceing my temps at all. Only solution what reduced my temps were fan control. Second problem is that I can't play my favourite game NBA 2k15. I can't play it even on lowest settings. No matter what i do I can only get about 53fps. What do you guys think, what I should do? I have a headache because of this Lenovo machine. Any help is appreciated. cheers! :distracted:

Hey, a smarter solution is to try an OC of your GPU, that's GT750M ddr5 memory but you can get less more fps, about 5-6 . But if you already have overheat problem, i think you can't do anymore else. However at your own risk you can try to search on this forum the appropriate settings for your gpu. Or if you would to spend or you already have a desktop gpu, you can take a look in the section DIY e Gpu. Moreover the paste does not work miracles, but there are better ones.

IMHO

If you want a sweet gaming rig Desktop is the way to go. On the other hand you could try the newer NVidia drivers, I had an issue with one of the older drivers a couple of months back. I've played BF4 and BioShock Infinite with no issues at decent settings on my y510p.

Minimum System Requirements:

  • OS: Windows 7 64 bit or higher
  • Processor: Intel Core2 Duo or better
  • Memory: 2 or more GB RAM
  • Graphics: DirecteX 10.1 compatible (512MB) or better
  • DirectX: Version 11
  • Hard Drive: 50 or more GB available space
  • Sound Card: 9.0c compatible

Honestly I don't know why you're having issues. If you have the Ultrabay card, sometimes a new driver update disables the second card, take a look in the NVidia Control Panel...

Yes, the later nvidia drivers did improve temperatures. I play BF4 and WatchDogs. Both work fine with high textures. Also its helpful to raise the laptop a bit using a pen or something stable and no fabric like bedsheet or pillow below it.

Have you tried getting one of those usb cooling pads to put under the laptop.. obviously more for when you have your laptop setup on a desk but i found that the cooling pad really lowered the heat output

I have a y510p and I've never had overheating problems because I always have it on top of a cooling pad that I got awhile ago. It works great and should remove any heating problems you have.

Two items: first make sure that if you have SLI make sure it is enabled in the NVidia Control Panel (each driver update seems to disable SLI on my laptop) and second, check your power profile in Windows Power Management (I discovered it sometimes sets max CPU to 80% usage even in high power mode). Hope this helps!

As for the heat, it definitely pays to have a cooling pad with this notebook.

      Hi folks,
        Greetings from Brazil!  Not sure I'm posting in the right place, but I have a question:  how do I find out the brand and model of my BIOS chip without having to open my laptop?  I can't find this information anywhere.  Been searching for days... I have a Lenovo Ideapad 300-15ISK 80RS (motherboard Paris 5A8).  Thanks a lot for your time and help! I really appreciate it!   Best regards,   JC.

      Hello to all dear visitors, 
       
      I have been using Lenovo y510p notebook for two years but in games I think my graphic card is inadequate. After that I've bought Mini PCI-e EXP GDC and attached it to where the wireless card socket is.  However because it has x1 speed its performance is too low. Even though on tests rx460's ranks is low than rx480, it has more performance.
       
      In x1 PCI-e port, the performance is too low and inefficient. On GPUz programme, use of memory controller is 20% but use of GPU is 100%. I mean, I've been hooked to the x1 speed.
       
      Components : EXP GDC version 8.0 +450w PSU + rx480
       
      I've read all pages about ultrabay, I want to buy and to share in forum.
       
      If anyone has ultrabay to PCI-e port, I want to buy. Please help.
       
      Thanks for everything.

      Hi, I'm having problems trying to connect a GTX 750 Ti to my Lenovo T420 using the dock EXP GDC Beast (express card version).
      My laptop: Lenovo T420
      RAM: 8GB DDR3
      CPU: Intel Core i5 2520M
      GPU: Intel HD Graphics 3000
       
      My problem is: if I plug the express card and I turn on the laptop it doesn't boot up and the screen becomes horrible, with coloured pixels and a sound like "bip-bip".
      If I try plugging the express card when the laptop is already turned on it sees the gpu, but if try installing the drivers I have to apply the modifies restarting the computer.
      I hope you understood my problem (I don't speak English very well).
      Please help me, It's making me crazy!
       
      EDIT: I didn't say that if I plug the express card when the pc is already turned on, in the device menager there is "Error 12" on the gtx 750 ti
