Get latest drivers (from manufacturer website if available). Also, update your BIOS too.

 

In a few words: UPDATE ALL TO LATEST VERSION.

If I remember well, all my drivers are up to date :/

Don't know about the bios however, I'll check

 

On this link :

http://consumersupport.lenovo.com/in/en/htmls/1256358540190.html

we can see that Y310 is not "windows 7 ready", is it just because the drivers were not adapted yet or impossible to adapt ? Oo_o

I did see that your PC does not have Win7 drivers but rather Vista drivers. Since you said you tried and installed the Vista drivers and no luck then try DRIVERMAX. I had a PC that did not have XP drivers. That program found and installed drivers in XP and got it working. What it does is find a driver for that type of board/CPU/GPU/USB/webcam or sound card.

Here are the directions off of my head the best that I can remember:

  • 1 when you first load it (after it indexes and askes you to register), put the mouse on driver downloads and info, click on start the drivermax agent.
  • 2 when the agent loads make sure its on the 2nd tab available updates. If the (part your wanting to install) shows there then select it then click download. Click the 2nd option display updates for the selected updates only.
  • 3 now it will go to the website and show you the available driver/s. I always choose the top driver listed. Click the download link beside it. Click continue free user. Make sure you have it open with drivermax and not save it to the pc.
  • 4 It will then download it and let you know when it is ready to be installed. Another thing if the driver (for what your needing) is not showing there then click on the identify unknown hardware below start the agent at the main drivermax screen. Then do the same to download and install it.

There are also Youtube clips on how to use DRIVERMAX. Cheers! Hope it works for you.

Hey, thank you mrpeter, that's quite an interesting soft, I installed it and it found some SATA drivers (I suspected hard drive drivers to be source if this issue), I'll give feedback about it :)

OK, no more freeze since a few days.

 

Your suggestion was good Ipnash, however, my problem was more to figure out which drivers needed to be updated and where to find them. So MrPeter's solution has been really efficient from this point of view :)

 

Thanks to you and all people that answered in this thread and more importantly MrPeter for provinding the final solution :)
