Hello there.

Full drivers can be found here: http://consumersupport.lenovo.com/uk/en/DriversDownloads/drivers_list.aspx?CategoryID=6
Sometimes using Vista drivers can work on Windows 7.

You may also want to try the Smart Downloading from Lenovo which detects your hardware and attempts to install the drivers for you here: http://consumersupport.lenovo.com/uk/en/SmartDownloading/index.html?Lang=en

If you still have issues, you can try this:
  1. Right-click on Computer and select Manage.
  2. On the left side, choose Device Manager.
  3. On the right side, right-click on the device which driver you wish to install and click on Properties.
  4. Navigate to the Details tab.
  5. On the Property drop-down list, select the Hardware ID.
  6. Look it up on Google to find drivers, or post it here to assist you in finding them.
Thank you. Let me know questions.

Hello Thakur,

You do not say what operating system you are using.

But you can download drivers for that model laptop from the Lenovo website.

The website link is:

There are a few options to find the correct model so you can download the correct driver.

For example, if you choose Browse Products under the support website, you will see a dropdown list of menu options.

On the first menu, choose
Laptops & netbooks
3000 Y series laptops
3000 Y410

At this next page is where you will want to choose the model. The model number is to the right of the number 7757 so it will be 7757-xxx where xxx=the model number

then choose your operating system

Once you see your laptop listed at the top, choose the menu option on the left called
Download Drivers & Software

As an alternative to the above which is somewhat difficult, you can just download the Lenovo system updater program which you can run to make sure you download the correct drivers:

Windows XP/Vista/2000

Windows 7

Hi prashant3_yi,

Welcome to FixYa! How are you doing?

You did not specify the operating system you have (whether it is windows xp, vista or windows 7).

Anyways, you can download the camera driver of your Lenovo Y410 here: http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/MIGR-68104.html

Note: If the link does not work. Copy and paste it on the address bar of your internet explorer.

Hope it helps. Thank you for using FixYa!

Please try to use the camera using different applications like yahoo messenger, skype or Lenovo Youcam. If non of them works with the camera follow the instructions below.

Please try Fn+Esc. This function allows you to enable or disable the built-in camera for Lenovo Laptops. There should be a small camera symbol that would appear on the lower right corner of the screen. If the camera symbol has " \ " on it, it means the camera is disable but if not it means its enable.

Check if the camera is seen on the device manager and check it properties. Make sure the camera's status is "Device is working properly". If not download the driver from the link below.

On your touch pad exists a place that works like a scroller on the mouse (Usually the right part of pad with white lining). When you rest your wrists in this area, the cursor usually jumps in another place. I'm of course hoping that this is the problem and that your touch pad works fine. Try it and please tell me if this fails..

I would 'slap' Windows around, and make it reinstall the drivers for the DVD optical drive.


[Note* All clicks are Left-click unless otherwise noted]

1) Click on Start (Windows logo button)

2) Click on Control Panel

3) Click on Device Manager

4) After Device Manager loads all the way, click on the + sign to the left of -
DVD/CD-ROM drives

5) Right-click on the name of the DVD optical drive

6) Click on Uninstall

Windows will come up with a 'squawk box',
"Warning you are about to uninstall this device"

It's okay, click on OK.

Now close all windows, and go back to the desktop screen.
Restart the computer.

When Windows has fully loaded you should get a pop-up out of the system tray,
"Found new hardware device", and perhaps another one will follow,
"Found XXXX optical drive"
(XXXX being the name of the optical drive)

If this doesn't work try cleaning the laser optical eye of the DVD optical drive.

Laptop on open the DVD optical drive tray.
Turn the laptop off.
Remove ALL power to the laptop.
(AC adapter {Charger} and Battery)
Use a can of compressed air for computers.

Or use a disk cleaning device for cleaning CD/DVD optical drives. (Power plugged into the laptop)

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

Hi mbmedel,

I see that you are having issue with your camera with an Error Initialization Failed.

you can try reinstalling the drivers of your camera from the Lenovo website, or you can locate your Camera driver in the D: drive if you still have that partition then look for the Drviers folder then look for Camera you should see the installer in that folder it maybe name setup or dvinstl.

Also you can try Holding Down the Fn + Esc this turns the camera On and Off see if the camera will repsond to this function if not then try the reinstallation of the driver.

If during the Re0installation of the camera driver then an Error show could not detect camera or device then the camera on your machine needs to be replaced.

I hope this helps.

Have a nice day,

Yes, with this model, Mix and match is ok. Different sizes/speeds of memory can be used together as long as their specification are qualified by the systems. For instance, a laptop can use one 512MB and one 2GB of memory for the total of 2.5GB system memory. Mixing two different speeds of memory modules would result the system to run at the speed of the slower memory between the two modules.

Hi There and Welcome to Fixya.

This on and off buzzing noise in the system indicates that the fan is not operating as designed and needs to be replaced as soon as possible. You may refer to Lenovo's consumer support site for replacement/repair options:

Lenovo Consumer Support

Please understand that this kind of work requires a certified Lenovo technician in order for it to be completed.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Welcome to Fixya.

The system fans are located at the bottom left of this laptop. If there's noise, then it means that the fan is working to cool down the processing. If the fan noise is too loud, then it needs to be replaced as soon as possible.

You can check for replacement/repair options through Lenovo's support site :

Sorry to say that this is an indication that the LCD display is failing in that one line. It doesn't
mean that other parts of the display will fail. It may work this way for years to come. Unless it is really annoying or covers more than one single line, such as an inch or so, it isn't something that will cause damage to your laptop. I wouldn't go to the expense of replacing the LCD over one line.

Hi dr_piyushpat,

I see that you conencted your Lenovo Y410 to a Panasonic THP42c10 LCD TV, see details below.

*The Audio will dpened on what cable connection you have from the Laptop to the LCD TV,
*You have Y410 I do not think that HDMI will be an option.
*I believe that you are using the VGA port on the Machine for an extended Video.
*The Audio will really not be coming out of the Panasonic TV if you are using a VGA cable since that is only for Video you will need an audio cable Jack that will relay audio from the Laptops Audio Jack to the Audio Jack of your Panasonic TV thsi is the only way you can get audio out from the Laptop since you are conencted using a VGA cable.

* do not think that HDMI is present on your Lenovo Y410, but if ever you may have that connection/port the way to get Audio from an HDMI conenction is to change the audio PLayback properties and selct HDMI as the default device for the Audio to work using HDMI.

I hope that this helps.

have a nice day,

The same model Lenovocan have different types of network, video and audio drivers and unless youknow exactly which one is installed in your Lenovo, you need to download allthe drivers and install each driver until you find the right driver. When you download thedrivers, write down the device driver and it's file name so you have a recordof which driver you are installing and which directory the unzipped files arelocated on your hard drive. Go to the IBM/Lenovo WEBsite - support/download page and download the latest Windows device drivers foryour model computer, Use this link: - http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/product.do?template=%2Fproductselection%2Flandingpages%2FbrowseByProductLandingPage.vm&sitestyle=lenovo&brandind=10&validate=true
