    Re: Lenovo Ideapad Y510 is Go (Continued / NEW)

    Well I tried it again on a fresh reboot and it performed as described:

    1 - with "video" module blacklisted it booted up at full brightness and the fn-keys did nothing.

    2 - did a "modprobe video" from the root console and fn keys worked 6 levels of brightness in the correct direction.

    It could be this action in combination with the 27-odd ideas I tried from this board and others (gotta luv Linux!)...

    Prior to this change it seemed that the brightness would work but was being over-ridden by software. Hitting the fn-up would cause the screen to flash bright then go dim, the flash would be the "right" brightness, then it would be immediately changed to the wrong brightness. Somehow this eliminates the 2nd change.

    Now I have to find a way to add this to the end of the boot-up routine so it works automatically.

    Re: Lenovo Ideapad Y510 is Go (Continued / NEW)

    Based on HunterThompson's bios flashing script post here, it seems the new bios makes the screen dimming worse. Is this the case? Has anyone tried the new bios?

    EDIT

    I'm impatient and went ahead and updated my BIOS. So far it started up fine, and I don't really notice anything in particular that's different. The screen dimming is still backwards, it still dims when I start VLC or Avidemux, and I screwed up my camera a while back so I don't know if that's working better or not.

    But if anyone is interested in a little more user-friendly way to update the BIOS, this worked for me.

    Gear

    • gparted live CD or live Ubuntu cd
    • the rom of the bios update
      • You can get this from a Windows installation; the .exe is an archive, and the .rom is inside. You can try cabextract to get the .rom (available in the repositories), or if you have Windows/Virtual Windows installed, you can just run the .exe and nab the .rom that way.


    Steps

    • Boot into live cd
    • With gparted, create a small partition and format it as fat32
      • If you have a small root partition, this will be easy and not very time consuming

    • Boot back into linux
    • Drop the .rom into the fat32 partition
    • Restart
    • Hit F2 to get into the BIOS
    • Go to Advanced and then to the EasyFlash
    • You'll see a C drive -- that's your new fat32 partition, and the .rom will show up
    • Flash away, and reboot into your new BIOS
    • You can boot back into gparted and nix that partition, or just unmount it and keep it from loading at boot if you want. I made mine tiny and keep it around for just these sorts of occasions.

    Sorry -- I pasted the wrong link before. It's fixed now, and here's the correct link for Flash 10.

    I can't say for certain if you have your alsa set up correctly, but what you're describing is consistent with some errors people were having with Flash 9 -- sound would work one way, but then not on any web site with Flash like YouTube, etc. So trying Flash 10 couldn't hurt, and it may fix your problem. Just be sure to not have libflashsupport installed if you go with 10.

    If you didn't install libflashsupport, you're probably okay (and it's probably why you're having problems now). You can search for it in synaptic -- if it's installed. remove it. If it's not installed, don't worry about it.

    For Flash 9, libflashsupport helped take care of a number of sound and crashing issues.

    If you haven't seen it yet, you should probably look at the Restricted Formats info and the help page on Multimedia Applications.
