Doesn't happen to my system, using latest Hardy Gnome and KDE...
What you use to get online? What OS you are using?
On another subject, has anyone been able to get splashy working with Lilo properly? Can folks post their LILO.CONF settings so I can compare?

Make sure you have SP3 installed... I don't have your model but I was only able to setup my Y710 under XP once I had SP3...
Have you seen this link:
From another post on the Lenovo forums:
- you need to install some critical updates before the audio and modem drivers will work. (i also got the 'modem installation failed!' message before installing the critical updates) i installed sp3 and it worked, but if you don't want to install sp3, look in the extracted folder (C:\drivers\conexant audio) for a text file called 'readme' and it'll tell you which specific update you need to install (KBXXXX).
-for some reason the broadcom ethernet driver for xp listed under y430 is mislabeled and is the same as the conexant modem, so it won't work for the ethernet controller. in order to get this to work, try searching for 'broadcom netxtreme gigabit ethernet driver' - i downloaded one from the lenovo site but not sure which model it was hiding under. the one i ended up using was about 50mb and not 18mb as listed, but it worked.
Maybe the above will help you...

Which models of the Y730 series have number pads and which have the gaming configuration? I've looked all over the sight and only found that "some models have the gaming center". I'm specifically looking for a model with the number pad.
The blue models of the IdeaPad Y730 are not gaming models. These models come with the numeric keypad.
The orange models of the IdeaPad Y730 are the gaming models. These models come withthe Lenovo Game Zone instead of the numeric keypad.
