Can you uninstall your Intel HD drivers and install this Lenovo Z500 Intel HD drivers using this link: http://download.lenovo.com/consumer/mobiles/1hvh14w8.exe

 

After that, install Lenovo Nvidia Driver's for GT 740M here and see if it works: http://download.lenovo.com/consumer/mobiles/1hvg08w8.exe

Lenovo Y470: i7-2670QM | 8 GB DDR3 1333 MHz RAM | Nvidia GeForce GT 550M | 500 GB 7200 RPM Seagate HDD | ASUS PCE-AC56 802.11ac Network Adapter | Windows 7 Professional 64-bit
