Thanks for posting and welcome to the community,
You might want to consider updating your BIOS and the Lenovo PowerManager, The links can be found below.

I'm not entirely sure what is gong on with the system but I'm suspecting that it could be a software conflict. Please do give that a try and let me know of the changes.

Sorry for the delay in reply, just been tied to a number of cases. Was checking up on your case and was wondering you might want to try going into your BIOS and load the system back to optimal defaults and then check for the changes.
On another note, was there anything that you had installed prior to this issue happening?
Do let me know of the changes then.

Thanks for posting. TO access your you BIOS is quite aeasy. Now I do not have a Y570 with me but I will be guiding you base on the Y580 I have. It may not be too far abaprt in terms of the configuration menu.
Hope this helps and please do let me know of the changes.
