There are a number of possible reasons can cause your Lenovo Y510 computer running slow than it used to, it is hard to identify just what might be dragging down its performance, let alone implement the necessary technical adjustments to fix it.

So if you want to address the issues more easily, I'll recommend you try a Lenovo speed up software.

Over 10+ small utilities packed into one to help detect & fix all slowdowns in 1 click.

write "msconfig" inside Run tab and press 'enter'
inside the 'System configuration utility' window click on 'startup' tab then uncheck all the applications except your current antivirus and press apply then 'ok' and then 'exit without restart' option.

Hi kstrong,
I see that you need driver installed on you system, since you reinstalled windows on your Y510, make sure you check device manger on your system to see what driver you my need to install or probably you may need to reinstall all the drivers to make everything work fine on the Laptop.
below is a link where you can download your driver for your Y510 Laptop. http://consumersupport.lenovo.com/us/en/DriversDownloads/drivers_list.aspx?CategoryID=12
Once in the Download page make sure you only download the driver that is for the exact Windows on your system, it will say on the right side of each driver indicating what windows the driver is for.
I hope that this helps you with your concern, Reinstalling all your Laptops drivers will fix your systems devices and make them work properly again.
thanks have nice day.

The Lenovo Y510 has a 250GB 5400RPM SATA Hard Drive, the only way to increase this is to purchase a bigger laptop hard drive from your nearest PC/Technology store. Take it in to their technitions and ask for assistance in the purchase of a bigger drive.

  1. Click the Start button and click in the Start Search box.
  2. Type regedit, and then press the <Enter> key.
    Note: The User Account Control window may appear. If so, click Continue. The Registry Editor window appears.
  3. Click the arrow next to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE.
  4. Click the arrow next to SYSTEM.
  5. Click the arrow next to CurrentControlSet.
  6. Click the arrow next to Control.
  7. Click the arrow next to Class.
  8. Click {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}.
  9. In the right-hand pane of the window, click UpperFilters.
  10. Click Edit on the menu bar.

Normal 0 Web Camera’s have to be setup on the program they are to be used with. Just installing the camera on your computer does not set it up to broadcast on messengers or Skype.

The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now be able to see and her to you.

Hi,
To test it is working okay, download and install Videocaster, and choose Capture Video from the main menu.
If you want to use it on Messenger or Skype, you have to select it as the default webcam in the video settings in each program.

Hope this helps
