Having problems with your Lenovo IdeaPad Y510 Notebook ?

That is really wild since I bought mine on June 25, 2008

\015 I had the same problem and actually called Lenovo on the 24th of June, 2009 since my warranty was for 1 year. They picked it up at my door and supplied the box to ship it in. Then they got it back to me within 7 days. The hinges had stopped supporting the lid so it would not stay up and just flopped one way or the other.\015\012\015\012I had XP on this machine although it had come with Vista. I had only heard nightmares about Vista, so the guy that bought it for me put XP on it. Well when tech support shipped it back to me this year, they had replaced the motherboard, hard drive and of course the hinges.\015\012\015\012They also installed Vista Home Premium on it which initially made me furious, especially the dump prompts that come up everytime you issue a command. Well, they are easily disabled so it has grown on me. It has many nice features and has many self generating diagnostics. \015\012\015\012I ended up putting Vista Unlimited on it, which is the highest working Vista module and upgraded to 64 bit. I had to put about $50 worth of memory for this upgrade based on what I was being advised.\015\012\015\012This computer now screams with speed. When I open a program like Word, Excel, Tax Software, or go to the net, it is almost instantaneous.\015\012\015\012I would have it no other way now, and I am very glad I did a complete install with OEM instead of an upgrade. I also have the free Windows 7 upgrade in October 2009, if I should so choose.\015\012\015\012So I installed the Windows 7 RC (beta version which was free) on my wife's laptop, which is a Gateway MX6450 that had XP Home on it. It was even faster than this one and her laptop had half the memory and a slower processor.\015\012\015\012Someone else will have to explain that.\015

Answers :

Well it's pretty easy to explain. the main reason of this thing is windows' 7 kernel. it is built on a different platform than xp and vista. the computer booted faster and closed faster because of the load times: the boot time and the shut down times. it runs more fluent and responds more faster at the commands. it has the xp mode for the programs that can not run on w7. ooh and you will have a greater autonomy with w7
