What are the different problems that can occur with Lenovo IdeaPad Y560?

Within very short period of time, Lenovo unveiled its ground breaking model, the Lenovo IdeaPad Y560. There is lots of new technology incorporated into this system and they include RapidDrive technology and 3D display. The Lenovo IdeaPad Y560 comprises of an Intel Core 2 Duo processor. The users can also choose a new Intel Core i7 processor as well as a maximum of 8 GB of RAM, the combination which makes it a high speed machine. The keyboard is designed in such a way that it ensures long-life and durability. The touchpad is huge and responds well to a users touch. Along with these features, there might also be some issues with the Lenovo IdeaPad Y560. The major problems on the laptop do include overheating, optical driver issues and touchpad problems.

The common problems of Lenovo® IdeaPad Y560 and the tips to resolve them are explained in the following points:
  • Overheating of the system
  • Problems with the touchpad
  • Optical driver issue

Overheating of the system

The user must choose a cool environment for using the Lenovo IdeaPad Y560. Also the user has to ensure that the system’s air vents are not blocked. The best method is to adjust the settings. By doing so, the user can adjust the fan speed and thus adjust the temperature of the CPU. Updating the BIOS information on the system will also allow you to reduce the temperature of the system.

Problems associated with the touchpad

Another problem with the Lenovo IdeaPad Y560 is its touchpad. The scrolling issue with the touchpad may annoy its operators. Hardware problems, virus attacks and software incompatibility are the common reasons for malfunctioning of your system’s touchpad. Driver problems can be easily resolved by their proper reinstallation. Updates for the drivers must be done so as to avoid any incompatibility issues.

Optical driver issues

Problems with optical drivers are also a major drawback of the Lenovo IdeaPad Y560. Failure in reading and writing is a dominant problem with the optical drive. Before inserting the disc, the user has to look for the compatibility of the driver. If this condition is not satisfied, then it will ultimately damage any disc that has information on it. You can check for any physical hardware faults with the optical drive or you can also update the drivers of the optical drive with the help of the ThinkVantage System Update software that is built into Lenovo laptops.

    I am having a problem with my screen crash dumping and the fan seems to run hot all the time. Is this something I can fix? I have the windows 7, i7 processor. Also, I sometimes cannot load software with the dvd drive, but that is occasional. This lenovo is only two years old…

    Thanks for your help,

      If the fan is noisy at the same time, you can take it to a tech shop and get it checked for obstructions. You can consider using a cooling pad too.

      If there is no obvious noise, follow the steps provided on http://www.askiyogi.com/laptop-2/category/pc-laptops/22251.html to minimize system activity.

      If the system still crashes and a crash dump is created (C:\Windows\Minidump), run the tool available on http://support.microsoft.com/kb/254649 to determine which file is causing it. Then, search for the file:

      • If it is a part of a driver, uninstall the driver and reinstall it.
      • If it is a file for a program, uninstall it if you do not need it. Otherwise contact its manufacturer for an updated version.
      • If it is a part of the Operating System, perform a repair/in-place upgrade using the windows disk.

      Hope it helps.
