Graphical Deterioration on Y

Hi guys. Quick intro. I'm not computer savvy, at all, and I'm hoping to get a few answers for my problem.

 

I'm using a Y460. Not sure why, but my graphics have been getting worse and worse. It wasn't a problem before, when I had just bought it. The graphics are starting to look worse, laggier, for no apparent reason. I don't have much installed, maybe one or two games, a quick virus scan shows no sign of infection and I haven't tampered with the graphics card settings. Whenever I reinstall Windows it works perfectly. Then it happens again.


What's the problem?

Hmmmm, I don't see any graphics card updates that are compatible. Do you mind guessing what the problem is? And would something like this be covered by warranty?

Re: Graphical Deterioration on Y

we can try to help or you can contact lenovo support.

even if we help, if it's hardware issue, you need to ship your laptop back to lenovo anyway.

so, it's up to you.

Re: Graphical Deterioration on Y

How old is your machine?  I've found that after a year or so, my old Dell required me to open it up and clean dust bunnies out of the heatsink/fan assemblies, and the GPU/CPU was much happier and things ran smoothly again.  I think it's easy with these ideapads to open it up and take a look...meaning, you don't have to take off the keyboard, remove LCD panel, unhook wireless card, remove keyboard tray, etc. I think it's as easy as removing a panel from the bottom.

Re: Graphical Deterioration on Y

Can you explain what's the deterioration? What you see?
Can you post pictures? Video?

Thanks!
