I installed Ubuntu 8.04 on my new Lenovo Y710 and all seems to be fine except that my CD/DVD is not automounted nor recognized; I already added exec, auto in fstab config file.
My cd works fine if I modify the /boot/grub/menu.lst by adding acpi=off, but that causes system instability and the system doesn't view the battery status any more (so I must keep it on AC power).
any ideas or suggestions will be greatly appreciated
thank you in advance,

In the forums please navigate to lenovocommunity : idea systems : ideapad : Re: Organize favorites (and other things triggered by CTRL-B) keep popping up.
Several of us have the same problem with our Y510 and what seemed to be random crtl-b's, but i've discovered at least one cause, a cable box remote. IMO this is a pretty serious design flaw requiring an immediate fix or replacement of the problem units with a different model. I'm posting this email back to the forums and we'll await Lenovo's reply.

Hello Alex, did you find any solutions to what you described? I have a y710 and the same happens to mine and on top (DVD not being detected/working) somehow Hardy does some thing so next time I boot into my windows partition the DVD no longer shows up... Very weird... I think has something to do with the 2.6.24 kernels...
If anyone has a solution to this I would greatly appreciate it...

FYI : I use these drivers nvidia v.177.92 from laptopvideo2go.
Install : no problem
One issue : excessive I/O, hard disk activity then I used filemon to find that a nvidia process was trying to read a file 'nvcplenu.dll' unsuccessfully.
So I disable the nividia driver service : no constant IO anymore.

Alex my Y710 came with ATI Radeon 2600 and is working fine... in both Linux and Windows
The problem of DVD not working in Ubuntu/any other distro seems to be a GRUB not a kernel issue... When anothet bootloader is in the MBR other than Grub windows won't loose the dvd drive, Ubuntu it won't show it up still but at least it won't affect the windows partition...
My issues with Linux:
-DVD not working
-HeadPhone not muting the speakers
BTW I got all the drivers to work in XP, including the Halo, Veriface, special keys etc... if anyone needs help with this I may just be of help to those wanting XP versus Vista...
