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:
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.
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.
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.
