Y500 serious perfomance problems

Recommended Posts

Hi!

 

Pardon my english.

I've been struggling with framerate and perfomance problems with my Y500 laptop for a while now (since I bought this shittop :)  )

 

Specs:

i7 3630QM

8GB

GT650M SLI

 

For example, in Counter Strike: Global Offensive, I have very low framerate, and in some maps I encounter very poor perfomance including strange mouselag.

When I bought the laptop, CSGO would perfom well: framerate was 200-300 easily at high settings. That was with stock drivers, with Win 8.

 

After I updated my GPU drivers, these perfomance problems started. I rollbacked to driver version 331.82, that was the only working version I tested. When 8.1 came out, the same driver worked well.

 

Now I have Win 10 installed, and I have these frustrating perfomance problems with many games. Like I said, CS:GO performs very poorly, framerate drops below 100 even in well optimized maps like Dust II. If a map has water in it, and I look at the water, I encounter mouselag, what makes the game impossible to play. FPS stays same (70-120 about), but mouselag is horrible.

Also, I've tested Crysis 2. I have similar problems with it, but mouselag is the most disturbing thing in that, not actually the framerate.

 

In CS:GO, all settings are low, multicore rendering is enabled (there is no difference if its enabled or disabled).

 

So guys, I beg your help. At the moment I would like to throw my shit Lenovo out of the window , because this is the worst PC I've ever bought.

 

A few notes:

Earlier I had also problems with screen tearing, and odd mouselag. I managed to fix that, when I turned v-sync on and then off ingame. Now that does not affect anything.

Changing driver versions fixed problems earlier.

Does it matter, if my V-Bios versions are different?

Framerate is same, no matter if I use SLI or not. Same poor shit perfomance.

Energy settings: Checked. Nvidia Control Panel setting is set to perfomance, not adaptive. Also Lenovos own settings is set to perfomance mode, and Windows' too.

Yes I use the correct AC adapter.

Not OC:d, haven't messed with any hardware settings. Just updated V-bios when 8.1 came out.

Overheating is not the problem, cold or hot, same issues.

Tried to murder my cat and make a pentagram from its blood, prayed for satan. No help from there. This was also a joke.

 

So long post, I hope you did not TL;DR ;)

 

If you find a solution to this problem, I love you all.

I have been facing low frame rate issue, but not to counter strike.  Playing Dark Soul 3 recently, finding way to overclock it.

The mouse input lag is usually caused by having vsync turned on. My y500 is a used one that I bought last year and I haven't met with those FPS problems yet, so it could be an isolated case. The only thing that comes to mind right away is throttling from overheating. Did you monitor your temperatures?

I have a different set up (i5) and encounter many laggy situations. This occurs even when not in a gaming situation.

I've encountered the similar problem.

 

Unfortunately, while the 650m SLI is DX11 capable, it's not actually very playable.

If you can, enable dx10 in your games. With the upgrade to windows 10 newer nvidia drivers just assume to default to dx11.

 

Also, depending on how long you've had your laptop. Take a look at your thermals. If your card is being thermal throttled constantly it means that your thermal compound needs to be replaced and dust needs to be removed from the heatsink. (I easily saw a 5 - 10 degree celsius delta)

This is not true at all. Overclocked 650M SLI runs SLI optimized DX11 titles up to 2015 at 1080p60 high to very high settings. The biggest limitation is the 2GB VRAM.

DX10 was a failure and so few games use it, it's not even worth mentioning. Vast majority are DX9 or DX11.

please check your adapter healthy. i have same problem with my y500, after many search and try many methods fine that my power adapter can not supply needed power so changed power adapter and now work properly.

you most have 170W (20V-8.5A) adapter. but the adapter with details 19.5V-6.5A can solve your problem.

The mouse problem could be the old mousepad you have, check if you have the synaptic mousepad, if so reply back to me.

Yeah... now you start feel that you'r laptop get "old", got same config as you (SLI), GTA V on lowest Settings struggling like hell.... no problems with Counter-Strike ofc. Did you activate SLI in your NVIDIA Settings? After DRiver Update it will be deactivated.

What about overclock it a bit and see what happens, my y510p suffers some 0,5-1 second freezes in some games, i suspect my CPU spikes to 100C, really strange, sometimes my CPU just spikes down to 700 mhz. :(

Can you attach another Display to your lappy and monitor your CPU GPU?

      When my first CPU fan on Y500 is broke i replaced it on something compatible (non-original) and planned to replace it later on original. Since that time happened a lot things, but i still using that non-original fan. But i did some research and here is what i founded:
       
      I. ORIGINALS
       
      1. Forcecon (marked as FCN on fan)
      DFS5413005MH0T-FC1C (5V - 0.5A)
      Spotted in: Y400, Y500.

       
      2. Asia Vital Components (marked as AVC on fan)
      BNTA0612R5H-P007 (5V - 0.5A)
      Spotted in: Y410p, Y500, Y510p.

       
      3. Sunon (marked as SUNON MagLev on fan)
      MG60120V1-C230-S99 (5V - 2.25W (0.45A))
      Spotted in: Y410p, Y500.

      So, which to choose? Any recomendation? Maybe there also unexpected way (completely diffirent fan from another company for another laptop)?

      Hey sorry for my bad english and sorry if this question is kinda stupid..
      So i have a y500 650m SLI and already flashed the bios.
      I thought about getting myself a EXP GDC v8 + 220W Dell power brick and a 1050 Ti from Zotac.
      i googled a bit and found some ppl saying that the y500 model 1(? - i don't know which one i have) only has mPCIE x1 - so whatever it is they say it's kinda slow.
      So my questions are, do i only have 1x PCIE, how can i find out and to what "powerer degree" of graphics card can i get, that doesnt suffer from power loss then?! Is a 1050Ti ok für that PCIE 1x?
       
      i attached a screen of my nvidia inspector window maybe it helps

      Every once and a while, my fan will start rattling, and everything works fine, but it is just extremely annoying and I don't know how to make it stop. I tried using the dust cleaning function of the lenovo battery application, and it helped a little but occasionally it will start making the noise, and it is really loud and concerning because I hope it is not indicating any other more pressing issues with the Y500.
    • By rusTORK
      I know, i know, i know... @svl7 said it's disabled, @octiceps said it's disabled and many other forum users said it's disabled.
       
      I am always want to double check everything and i did it this time too. And i would like to post here result of my research. But first thing first - my PC:
       
      Laptop Configuration: Lenovo Y500 SLI
       
      CPU: Intel i7-3630QM (2400-3400 MHz, Ivy Bridge, QuadCore)
      VGA: 2x 2048Mb NVIDIA GeForce GT650M (SLI Configuration)
      MB: Compal LA-8692P
      RAM: 2x 4Gb Ramaxel RMT3160ED58E9W1600 (11-11-11-28)
      HDD: 1TB Seagate Momentus 5400 (ST1000LM024 HN-M101MBB)
      SSD: 120 Gb Samsung 850 EVO (MGX S4LN062X01)
      Display: 15.6" LG\Philips LP156WF1-TLC1 (1920x1080)
      WIN: MS Windows 10 Pro (x64)
       
      Also i must say, that i have got UNLOCKED BIOS by @svl7. And for second VGA too.
       
      Research
       
      It's beginning from @geraldthread about his Ultrabay to PCI-E Adapter for Lenovo Y510p for useing Radeon Desktop VGAs as external VGA. It's performed well with Y510p, but there was zero info about how it perform on Y500 or will it perform at all (now we know that it's no, but it's another story). Unlocked BIOS didn't help with adapter and i decided to dig more deep in re-enabling integrated GPU in Intel CPU - Intel HD Graphics 4000. And new unlocked BIOS give me a lot of new options to play. But important thing is... some of them working, some of them no. So, here is what i am founded.
       
      First i go to new unlocked BIOS and saw there a lot new tabs.

       
      I go to Advanced => Video Configuration => Special Features


      This option already was Enabled (Switch Graphic Function)
       

      After that i go to Internal Graphic Device and Enable Internal Graphics Device.
       
      Then save changes and exit. Laptop is shutdown and after few seconds turn on again. I saw Lenovo loading screen and then nothing when loading complete. Windows didn't start.
      I am restarted laptop three times and it's started recovery mode. From recovery mode i am loaded Safe Mode and at that point i am finally was at Windows.
       
      My first way goes to Device Manager to see new device. And there was new device - Intel HD Graphics 4000.

       
      In safe mode windows can't access to it's current status, but there also was no error codes. First time there was no driver installed, but now it's even have last driver!

       
      After that i go to AIDA64 Engineer Edition and look what it's show me. It's saw iGPU!

       
      So, at this point i don't what to think about it. I can see iGPU in safe mode, but i can't boot with it in normal Windows. Is AIDA64 lie to me or even Device Manager?
       
      What do your think about it?
       
      P.S. Oh yeah, most menus on Russian language, but i hope your got the idea and trust me. =) It's no fake.

      I recently bought a "Lenovo Ideapad Y500". I like it a lot, but there is one big problem: the games doesn´t run properly.
      On notebookcheck.com "Max Payne 3" gets around 70 fps on medium. I get 8-15 fps on medium with some settings turned off.
      "Red Faction: Armageddon" gets 8-19 fps.
      On notebookcheck.com "Metro 2033" gets around 80 fps on high. I get 20-30 fps on high with some settings turned off.
      All three games were tested in both DirectX 9 and 11. The fps i wrote about is from DirectX 9.

      Specifications:
      3. generation quad-core Intel Core i7 processor (3630QM)
      8 gb RAM (DDR3)
      Nvidia GT 750m (SLI) (GDDR5)
      1 terabyte capacity
      Full HD screen (1920x1080)
      Windows 10
