[MENTION=1159]Thor[/MENTION] thanks,
My boot up time is improved as I delayed some program's startup time.
Now, do I need to keep Soluto?
Can I remove it?

Nope checked there as well nothing

i contacted lenovo Services-Executive Director also he said he has informed local team they will get in touch with me that was last week nothing after that, maybe few more people bug him so he can do something

his ID services_ed@lenovo.com

Edit:

btw whats the optimum temp while gaming single gpu

i was playing watchdogs with the recomended settings from geforce experinance medium @ 1600*900 i guess fps was around 40-50 and temp were almost 90 this is with notepal x2 cooler and ambient temp would be around 30-32 i guess not sure.
is it ok should i consider opening and repasting the cpu and gpu is it worth it?
and finally do laptop cooler fan get slower with time, i feel my notepal x2 is not as fast as it used to be i opened it up and cleaned it but nothing changed and the dial to set rpm seems to do nothing now....any help??

90 is fine when it comes to intensive usage. If you are more curious about keeping it under check better replace the thermal plate.

Fantastic. I am happy to see it worked for you.
Well I keep Soluto running in the background, it sends me weekly report on which apps had crashed , which one's are a trouble maker and if new app installation added to the boot time.
It is a kind of heartbeat monitor for your machine.

But you can definitely remove it without problem , and install it back when you feel your machine is slowing down and have a check-up again.

Thermal plate? Cooling pad?
Well 90 is fine but when I play farcry 4 it then lingers around 95 something that makes me worried...
How much does ambient temperature affect here mine is above then normal I guess around 30ish

I had a few instances where the temp reaches the 90 degree mark often. And SLI config sometimes makes the device go out of control. So I changed the thermal plate and now I am able to click 75 to 80 max at hyper intensive usage.

ok got it thanks, but i think since i am in warranty i will ask the lenovo guys to do it for me dont wanna void its warranty

Who cares about warranty if you knew what you are doing and on a side note just check out some videos if you think to DIY.

Its been 8 months so far..My y510p has performed almost flawlessly...
Some points of concern :

1. It gets hot during gaming..around 80C during gaming..

2. The Internal HDD is a bit slow while reading/Loading ( maybe because of the 5400rpm drive)

Other than that, its been awesome...

80 is not hot for gaming even 90 is not considered hot when gaming and for slow hdd use m.2 and see the difference in speed.

Guys , SOS ...
I think something's f**ked up.

1. I bought the Samsung Evo 850 250GB SSD
2. I used the AOMEI Pro edition Partition Manager to copy my Primary Partition ( 103 GB ) to the SSD using the option "Migrate HDD to SSD" in the AOMEI tool.
3. Once the migration was done, I replaced the HDD with the SSD .
4. I tried booting now and got the following error :'( [ I have copied this image from a different site when searching for the error hex code ]

Have any of you faced this problem ?
https://neosmart.net/wiki/0xc000000e/ talks about a solution. This requires me to create a bootable dvd, now i dont have the optical drive plugged in :p so I am reluctant to go that route.
Maybe I have to check I can do a USB bootable recovery drive and try it out.

That sound must be from some object touching CPU fan like wire or most probably excessive dust.

Finally I got SSD for my Lenovo Y510P!
Its been a little more than a year since I bought fabulous Lenovo Y510P, so I have decided that it should get nice/major upgrades this new year.

Brought few upgrades for it as follows:

1). Samsung 850 Pro 256GB SSD.
2). HDD Caddy (To replace Optical Drive with HDD).
3). Broadcom 802.11ac 867MBPS WiFi adapter (Ordered from Aliexpress back in October 2014 and received it very recently, Chinese and Indian customs sucks big time!)

I have searched for M.2 2242 SSD but its now not available anywhere so decided to go with currently world's fastest SATA 3 SSD. After installation I had done fresh installation of Windows 8.1 Single Language with Update 3 and latest drivers with software's and noticed huge huge... difference in performance. I believe once the person upgrades to SSD, he/she can't go back to HDD as OS drive.

Hi Udit ...
I have also bought the evo 850 250 gb ssd and have it all set up. I also bought the storite hdd caddy ( which is the same make and model as the one you purchased i believe).
However when I plugin the caddy with the hdd , it doesn't show up as a disk ? Do i need to change anything in the bios ?

Guys.. My y510p has gone in a boot loop.. Whenever I start the laptop, the lenovo screen comes up, then it is followed by a black screen & then it says "preparing automatic repair".. & then again it boots up..
I can't log onto safe mode nor i am able to use the one touch recovery.

A preliminary Google search says that the HDD might have gone bad and lenovo will replace it..
Now, the main worrying factor is will i be able to backup my data (around 600gb) or is the data lost forever?? Lots of important stuff on it


P.S: Talk about bad luck.. All problems usually occurs on a weekend when service centres are closed
