Lenovo y500 compatible with Windows 10

Hello. Sorry for my English.
I recently installed Windows 10 on lenovo y500. 4 months everything worked well, but then I started to have problems with the video card. When I turned on the laptop, the screen started flashing, and then I saw a message about the failure of drivers. Then he stopped flashing and there were green pixels on the screen. I tried to reinstall the drivers, but nothing helped. Later, when I turned on the laptop, the screen turns green, and then completely turns off after a few seconds. I took it to the service center, and they said that it is necessary to install only Windows 8, because the BIOS and SLI does not work correctly with Windows 10. But these 4 months SLI has worked on Windows 10. What should I do? Is it worth it to stay on Windows 10, or roll back to 8?

My lenovo y500 spec.
i7-3630QM, 650m sli, 6Gb RAM, 1920x1080

HI JustSkill , 




Full features of Y500 for Windows 10 is not supported as with similar case here . 

Checking on device drivers support offered for Win10 would offer display drivers that is worth to try but not all drivers available yet as compared to WIndows 8.1 and most likely same goes with BIOS and SLI. 


Would there still be opportunity to jump back to a previous working date using system restore then stop drivers update from doing it automatically from Windows Update. 


Before deciding on moving back to Windows 8. 1 , see if doing a video driver rollback in device manager would help. 


Update us how things go.
