G580 - LSC Lenovo Solutions Center - Missing Backu...

Q: G580 - LSC Lenovo Solutions Center - Missing Backu...

Hello All,

My Lenovo Laptop, Lenovo G580 Model 2189, was upgraded from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10. Up until then I had been using Lenovo Solutions Center (LSC) and the Backup utility within it.

Now post the upgrade the Backup option has disappeared from the LSC. I am running LSC Version 2.8.

I upgraded to LSC 3.x after reading somewhere that I should do this if I have upgradred to Windows 10. Then the only option I got was the periodic hardware scan for problems. So I downgraded again to LSC 2.8.

Will LSC Backup work under Windows 10 ?
Is there a Windows 10 version of LSC I can download that does have the backup option ?

Thanks All
John.

My Lenovo T440s was updated to the Lenovo Solutions Center 3.3.002. One of my favorite functions of prior versions was to check, which Lenovo software and if the Bios needed to be updated. I noticed that the update info presented for Windows 10 in the prior versions was not correct as it showed that Windows 10 was never updated although it was up to date.After the Update to the new Lenovo Solution center 3.3.002 I am missing the check for Lenovo updates? Where is it now in the menu structure of the new version or how can I perform such a check now? Many thanks for helpful answers! Best regards Dirk

Hi,
 
I did a hard disk drive scan using Lenovo solution center diagnostics tool but ended up in failure. The result was very evident as the system started responding poor and Alt+ctrl+del doesn't work and every action is taking longer than normal time to complete. I still have extended warranty of 58 days left.
 
I got my laptop in India but imported from Thailand. I am currently residing in Australia. I dialed Australia customer care and they are conveyed that I need to contact Thailand Customer Care for this. Being a global company I didn't expect as I was expecting a quick solution. 
 
Can one of you, please let me know what needs to be done in this regard.
 
Regards,
Shan.

Hi tshanmuganathan ,
 
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
 
To avail of the in warranty coverage , it would be following the advise of Lenovo tech to contact the country as point of sale . Models and parts may not be available and / or not marketed to a particular country so International warranty would not be able to cover a particular laptop.
 
To explain more about IWS , you may review this article. 
Terms and conditions , international warranty lookup . 
 
Hope this helps answer your query,

My g580 ran out of battery while using it, and now it gets stuck on the lenovo logo. I tried a different hard drive which changed nothing, I've tested both hard drives on a different computer and they both work. However when I boot the laptop with no harddrive it will get past the logo go to a screen saying something about an unplugged cable then reset and get stuck on a blank screen.   If I plug in my windows recovery usb drive( and no harddrive) the the machine will boot normally and go to the windows installation screen. So any ideas on why a working harddrive would stop the system from booting? Also I've tried the whole taking out the battery unplugging it holding down the power key and then plugging it back in thing, did nothing.

Hello.

I have a Lenovo G580 with Windows 8. I have a weird problem with audio. If the default audio is set as internal speakers and I plug in my headphones the sound just keeps coming from the internal speakers. But if I set the headphones as default, I can switch between the speakers and headphones as I want and there is no problem if only I play music from my computer.

If I try to play something from my browser, however, the sound only comes from the internal speakers and connecting the headphones does nothing. Except (and this is where it gets weird) if I play something from my computer first using the headphones. Then I can play anything from the browser and hear it through the headphones as long as I don't plug them out. If I plug them out, the sound switches back to the internal speakers and trying to plug in the headphones again doesn't do anything. So I have to play something from my computer again with the headphones plugged in and then switch to my browser to again play everything through my headphones.

What's wrong with it? Any way to make it work as it should work?

Now i face fps drops. the games i used to play on my laptop with old bios, now started lagging. I also can't find the old bios file on support page. kindly advice.

Hi Puneet,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Forums.
 
We are really sorry to hear about the issue you are facing.
 
Firstly, Check BIOS? Sometimes a BIOS has fan speed controls.
 
This is normal as the game is running and full GPU is utilized, if the temp increases more than normal.  I suggest you to use the Laptop by placing it on a flat surface for good ventilation.
 
Please go through the below link to understand about Safe Temperature range for CPU?

Hey, I'm currently using a G580 Lenovo laptop.One day I played my laptop and supricely it just turned off, so I turned it on again and once I typed my password to access the PC it turned off again, so I got the battery out the PC and waited five minutes, after I got the battery back I pressed the power button and nothing happened, no lights, no noice, nothing, just not turning on. I tried to find my problem on the internet and I found a youtube video how to fix that: get your battery off with your charger, press the power button 1 minute, get back the charger into the pc and press the power button and ta-dam! It's working. Well no, I did everything and it didn't solve my problem. Any ideas?

Recently bought a new Lenovo G580 to replace my old decrepit Toshiba. It worked fine for a couple of days, but suddenly started BSOD-ing as I began to use the laptop more and more.

I have noticed it is more susceptible to BSOD-ing when I am running Bit Torrent. Although it seems to wait until it strikes, luring me into a false sense of security and then crippling me.

I ran BlueScreenView, as I have seen many people mention it on various forums, including this one, and the such and it gave me these results. Sorry if this is not the accepted way of throwing out these results, but I am unsure what I am doing.

Hi,
My daughters laptop has me baffled. It started with a blank screen issue, which I solved with a system restore. (theres was nothing of importance on the hard drive) I did try taking the battery out and after replacing holding the start button for 30 seconds first.
All appeared fine untill I shut it down. There was a massive 186 windows updates to do, which was expected after rolling back so far...
The issue now is a I get this message on the screen "failure to configure updates, reverting changes. do not turn off you computer. I get stuck with this screen with no change, I even left it over night.
I haven't managed to find the safe boot option with this Win 8 machine, I tried the F8 key on start up but no joy.
Has anyone solved this problem before?

Hi there all, Recently I got a Lenovo G580 (2189).Because I need WiDi (wireless display) options I bought a Intel Centrino Advanced-N6230 wireless card. After installing this hardware an error showed up at the startup: error 1802 ... unauthorized etc etc. I did not know about Lenovo - Bios and whitelisting hardware. Anyway this simple question remains. Which Intel Wirelesscard can I use with this laptop in order to work properly.Cause I don't want to hack the bios Cheers,Marlon

A:Lenovo G580 replacing wirelesscard not succesful -...

Hello and welcome,
 
I'm more familiar with ThinkPads, so please double-check anything you read in this post...
 
The problem with the white list is that a wireless card has to have a Lenovo FRU number.  It isn't sufficient to be an Intel XYZ board, it has to be an XYZ with the firmware ( the PCI subsystem ID) modified for Lenovo.  Reputable vendors will list the FRU if the board will play nice with the white list.
 
Take a look at the hardware maintenance manual for the G580, page 102l.  It lists an Intel 6150NX with an FRU # of 20002543.
 
Lenovo G480, G485, G580, G585, G780 Hardware Maintenance Manual (English)
 
As I said, this isn't my field of expertise (if there is one...) but maybe this will at least get you started.

My rule of thumb with BIOS updates is "if it is not broke, do not try to fix it" because there is always an inherent risk that a BIOS update can fail, and if so, leave  the system bricked (dead) requirnig a new motherboard, and there does not appear to be anything in the latest updates readme.txt other than specific fixes for Windows 8.1...

Just started happening this week.   It's stuck at the boot screen "lenovo".   I tried many different methods like removing battery, holding power button to reset, etc.  The *only* way to get it to boot is the remove memory card, and put it back.  Then it will boot up fine.     It might then boot fine for the rest of the day.  But then the next day (or after being shutdown for a while), it happens again so i have to remove memory card, put it back, etc.  What could be the problem here ?  I tried both memory slots.  So i don't think it's particular to one slot.

hi sameerjha28,
Welcome to Lenovo Forums!
 
?
You can try doing this:
-Turn off the computer.
-Unplug AC Adapter and remove the battery.
- Hold the Power button Down for at least 10-15 seconds, Then try reconnecting the AC adapter only and leave the battery out, turn it ON and see if it will make any difference.
- If it powered on Try it with the battery and check if it would still turn on properly.
?
If the above steps did not work Try an external monitor and check if it works there.
 
I would suggest Contact Lenovo Technical Support for service if the steps above did not help.
 
?
Hope this helps,

Hello, The Problem:Recently I installed Ubuntu 14.04.1 LTS  to my HDD in UEFI mode. Soon I found out that I could not access the BIOS using F2, but F12 allowed selection of boot device. Reinstalling Windows, I found out that the boot menu still had the Ubuntu entry and I still could not access the BIOS. I searched on the web for a solution and before I could manage to find a proper one, I managed to delete both the ubuntu and windows boot manager boot entries, still locked out of bios. This time I could not boot into any OS, could not access bios using f2 nor access boot menu using f12.  The Solution:There was one last hope, during boot I noticed that PXE (Boot via ethernet option was still showing).Note: This solution requires you to update the BIOS. This is a very risky procedure, so proceed with caution. This will also probably void your warranty. If you can access boot menu (F12) and want to regain access to the BIOS (F2), boot into Windows 7. Install a bios update for your laptop (specifically for your laptop) available at The Lenovo Support Site. The oldest BIOS (probably for Windows 7) is preffered. If you donot have access to windows 7, perform step 2 and boot into the created ISO by creating a bootable CD or pendrive. Then goto step 11.If you can't access F12 and F2, cannot boot into OS, but can boot via Ethernet (there should be a message about trying Atheros Ethernet PXE Boot during startup), start from step 1.

Update: Even in the newest BIOS Update 62cn97ww (for Lenovo G580), Ubuntu causes the same problem. I came across a solution on the internet, that works without having to update the BIOS if Ubuntu can be accessed. To fix it, boot into Ubuntu (should be installed on the system), start Terminal and type in the following commands:sudo grub-install
sudo efibootmgr -b 0 -BReboot and F2 should work. BIOS should be accessible through F12>Tab>Setup also. Ubuntu will boot no more but can probably be fixed.

Hi Wind,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Forums.
 
It really feels something amazing when people are concerned about stickers more than issue. I can honestly say that i haven't tried it. However if you asked me to guess I would suggest you to contact the nearest service center for futher assistance.
 
Hope this helps. Let us know how you get on.

I bought my Lenovo G580 more than 3 years ago, and it came with Windows 8.
For a certain reason, my coworker installed on it windows 7.
I tried to restore it to the original image by using the Novo OneKey Rescue button next to the power button... but unfortunately it didn't work... when i press the Novo button, four (4) choices appear on the screen:
- Normal Setup
- BIOS Setup
- Boot Menu
- System Recovery
When i press "System Recovery", windows 7 starts normally without recovering anything...
Is there any way to restore my Laptop to the original factory software???
Thank you in advance...

A:G580 - Lenovo OneKey Rescue button is not working ...

Your One Key Recovery (OKR) button is working, but most likely the recovery partition that contained the necessary files was removed or destroyed during the install of Windows 7.You have a couple of options:1. Contact Lenovo Support by phone, ask if the recovery DVD's are still available and purchase them, it is a reasonable price...2. Purchase the retail DVD of Windows (7, 8.1 or 10) and perform a fresh install.3. Pick a Linux version you like - download and burn to DVD, then install from media.I personally use Windows 10 Pro and Linux Mint (Dual Boot) on my G580 with no hardware issues in either OS... Really like some of the applications that Linux has, and the fact that it is completely free to use.Good luck.CB

Hi

I got a new Lenovo G580 laptop which did not come with any pre-installed OS. I installed Ubuntu in UEFI mode (I had not disabled UEFI/Secure Boot). Later I installed Windows 7. During installation it asked me to format the entire format as it did not recognize the GPT partition. Accordingly without thinking twice I erased the entire HDD and installed Windows 7. Now I am unable to enter into BIOS

Things I have tried:
Tried with F2, F1 and Delete keys while booting
Tried removing the battery and booting while pressing the above keys individually
Tried removing the battery and adapter, held the power button for 1 minute
Tried removing the battery and held the power button for 1 minute while the adapter was plugged in
Tried pressing F12 and going to the APP MENU but I can only see "Diagnostic Splash" Nothing else and in that diagnostic splash screen I see that the System BIOS is "shadowed"
How can i gain access to BIOS so I can disable UEFI and install Win 7 and Ubuntu side by side

Im not native english speaker, sry if u cant understand some parts. Ill try my best to make my message clear so eventual will come easier.

This problem occurs for quite some time, its rather calm since few weeks when I downloaded shitload of new drivers and some other lenovo stuff but might be just coincedence. Since this issue doesnt want to go away itself I have to do something about it. I can send it to Lenovo for free service anymore so Id like to ask some experts if theres something I can do to fix this issue.

Some info:
- occurs usually while typing or other stuff, but few times my laptop literally went nuts and flashed black screens few times a sec, no matter if i touched it or not

- its not overheating, i bought cooling pad and it didnt help much

- can happen just after turning laptop on and not happen during 10h+ session

Thank you in advance.

http://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Lenovo-3000-and-Essential/G580-Bios-update-problem/m-p/1199186/highlight...
 
Here the suggested solution from neokenchi that helped.
 
1. Boot into the BIOS by repeatedly tapping F2 on startup
 
2. In the BIOS, navigate to the Boot Tab and set UEFI to Disabled or Legacy then press F10 to save and exit. When
the computer reboots, check if you still get the errors and/or if you're able to boot into Windows.
 
3. If same problem, leave the changes that you made on Step 2 and attempt to re-install Windows via a Windows 8 recovery drive or OneKey Recovery button (note that this will wipe the computer to factory settings)
 
Hope this helps,

In my attempt to reinstall my Lenovo G580 audio drivers I deleted one and I can't find it. I think it might be a Dolby Advanced Audio driver because I'm pretty sure thats what my computer has. When I looked at device manager there were orignally 2 drivers under "Sound, Video, and Game Controllers". After I deleted one, the driver that was left is Intel(R) Display Audio. I hope that helps identify the missing driver. Also I would like a download link to the Intel(R) Display Audio driver because i will need to reinstall that one as well.

If anyone knows what exact program name/exe/windows file, Action Center uses to access the internet for answers, please post it here. Whatever Firewall you have, Windows 7 built in or other, set it temporarily to Allow All or OFF. With PC Stop's Firewall I had to completely UN-install it to get a program past it. Left it UN-installed & went to Outpost Free Security Suite/Custom install/Firewall Only. Make sure your Anti-Virus/Anti Mal-ware programs are already installed. Turn off EVERYTHING in Outlook Suite Free Settings EXCEPT for the Firewall. I am off to try to find out what exe or whatever it was blocking in Action Center-Get Answer...Wish me luck.

Hello. I have a Lenovo G580 Notebook with Windows 10 installed. The issue is that the Windows hotkeys, that is Windows key and other letter combinations, aren't working. For example, normally, if I press Windows key + I, then the Settings app should open up or if I press Windows key + R, then Run should open up. But the Start screen opens up instead in all such cases.

This is happening since I have updated the Synaptics touchpad driver via Windows Update. If I uninstall the driver, then the hotkeys start working again. But as soon as I install the driver, they stop working. This was not happening with Windows 10 before, even when the Synaptics driver was installed. It has suddenly started happening couple of months ago. Also I cannot completely uninstall the Synaptics driver because my laptop came with it itself nor can I stop the driver from updating as it is an important driver and it needs to be updated to be compatible with Windows 10.

Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

A:Windows hotkeys not working on Lenovo G580 Notebook (Windows 10).

I am having problems with Toshiba Canvio External portable hard drive with NTI EZ backup software that was installed when purchased. Have not been able to have successful backup (just figured the reason today) since Windows 10 updated from 8.1. If I go to NTI website the new software is with a trial offer only. There should be some way to update but everything seems to have a charge. At this point feel like buying different brand hard drive and using software that comes with that. I can't be only person with this problem. Also originally spoke rep that told me how to overwrite backups so as to not run out of space. That also won't work now. Please, I would appreciate some guidance. These things are maddening!

A:Help with upgrading Toshiba Canvio ext port hard drive backu

In my own (limited) experience... one can simply ignore the bundled backup software and simply use the drive as is.I have a Seagate usb drive; came with some backup software (can't recall what). I ignored it; never installed/activated it or what ever. I simply copy all my personal files to the drive via Explorer (if using Windows) or Finder (if using my Mac systems).One can also use other Windows compatible backup software too. And of course Windows (whichever recent version) has its own built-in?I prefer to copy/duplicate files, rather than "backup in the true sense. A true backup isn't immediately available without one has the compatible software for it. Whereas a straight copy/duplication of files to the drive - means the content is instantly available from any OS that can read/access the file format (usually ntfs).So - if you can ensure that any important files are already duplicated "as files proper" then why bother with NTI etc.? If the NTI backup is just that - not in an actual instantly file format - then copy all personal/critical files to DVD;and verify the copies are truly accessible too. Then simply start backups etc. anew using either Windows utility, or any other third-party utility you prefer (as long as it's Windows-10 compatible). EASUS has one; Acronis is another; and there are others;message edited by trvlr

When I try to customize my desktop there is no desktop tab and I think that might finally solve my problem. I have already tried...

Was it self-built, or was it manufactured by a lead vendor, i.e. Dell, HP, Toshiba, Sony, etc.?

Hello, I'm using windows 7, 64 bit.
after a big mistake of trying to use an old version of partition magic and let her do some "bug fix" - my comp can't load windows.

I am writing this message after 9 hours of reading forums, trying many things..

I am opening a new thread for a probably known problem because i have already tried everything i have found: bootsect, bootrec, startup recovery several times.

I really don't know what kind of details is important because while trying to fix it i saw many errors and messages so just ask and i will write everything that is needed.

I will tell you that first the problem that the startup recovery has found was: boot configuration is corrupt (error 0x490). after a few solutions (?) it now shows: system volume on disk is corrupt (error 0x3).

note: I cant even install windows again. first he didnt recognized my harddrive - only a small partition of 102mb (what is it?) or he found a win7 installation but he wrote that the partition size is 0mb.

should i try to rebuild the MGR again?
Is my winPE disk can help here?

I will appreciate any advice!

Good day ladies and gentlemen!

As you can probably assess from the thread title, There is a really weird problem afflicting my computers hard drive. The Hard drive with the problem is an advertised 750 GB Western Digital hard drive, with 684 available gigabytes.

The problem I am having is that a mysteriously large amount of hard drive disk space has disappeared from being available, and has left me to have only about 100 Gigabytes left (originally it had whittled down to about 100 MB before I deleted a large amount of miscellaneous files), from my estimated 500 Gigabyte's I had available to me last week, but there is still a lot of hard drive disk space un-accounted for. I've been perusing the windows 7 forum and have tried different solutions to no avail. The methods i've tried are as follows:

-Updating my BIOS, USB, Hard drive and other miscellaneous drivers
-Using Disk Cleanup
-Using Disk Defragmenter
-Using WizTree, WinDirStat, and TreeSize (free) to find out what was eating my HDD Space
-Phisically taking the Hard drive out and checking out what's wrong with another computer
-Deleting many large files not necessary to function

With the help of WizTree and the other programs, i've noticed that they only can account for one fifth of my hard drive, leaving the rest to the unknown.

I've attached screenshots that may help with diagnosing my problem.

The images should be self explanatory, and I hope they can help in alleviating this issue.

Hi, receiving an invite to update, I did and this is my first approach.Having the time to test the program in detail, these are the results on my PC (Z50-70 Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4510U Processor @ 2.00GHz 8GB diskdrive 1000GB)..- A "quick test" (which quick is not) goes on about 11 hours!- The longer time is for the testing of video card Intel (R) HD Graphics Family (1/2 hour for the memory test and at least 10 hours for the mathematics operations and pipeline texture), while the rest of tests takes only 10 minutes about. Conclusions:in my opinion a quick test should be reasonably "rapid" anyway, whereas the PC is not usable for all the duration of the test! Questions (given that even the help provided https://download.lenovo.com/lenovo/lsc/v3/help/src/html/index.html shows screens different from the real and offers very little):- What is the difference between "Run quick tests" ("Esegui test rapidi" in the IT version) and how provided by clicking on "Run comprehensive tests" and then "Run quick tests" (IT vers.: "Seleziona test" then "Esegui test rapidi")?- What is the difference between "quick tests" and "extensive testing" (IT vers.: "test rapidi" and "test completi")?  the resulting logs are identical!- It says "Hardware scan" but the drivers are also tested?- Between the "memory" tests we can see (on IT version)  "Quelli che camminano a sinistra di prova" and "Quelli che camminano di prova giu...

First, Im sorry if I'm posting in here wrongfully, the lenovo contact us page doesn't provide a way to contact lenovo. I was told it would be at most $650.00 to repair my laptop, which I was told would take at most 6 days or so. I was charged $695.50 by IBM for the repair automatically, again no way to contact anyone. I sent my laptop in on june 7, and got it back end of july.  My laptop is the x1 yoga, whatever part replacements I got all had on hold delays. I don't expect any sympathy from anybody, but this is kind of ticking me off that I was charged extra for delayed turn around.  I haven't seen the break down of the bill yet, but I have seen the charge on my account. If anyone has a way I can get in touch with lenovo support that would be a big help.

I purchased a CG20 as a closeout. It looks as if the box was an open box, but it wasn't ever registered and things looked normal when I turned it on. Registration and everything went fine except for one small detail. I have noticed that in the Lenovo Solution Center my product is listed as INV201 and serial number as INVALID.  Should I be worried that I have a product that is not eligible for any warranty service? When I look at the support site it says there is a warranty available on it. But still it bothers me.

I got ANtivirus 2010 infecting my computer after following a link. It disabled my Vipre Antivirus. After numerous attempts with Vipre to fix, I finally wiped my computer clean and reloaded all my programs myself. Almost back to normal, but certain logue in attempts don't work properly, like Blog Talk Radio where I used to Broadcast. I understand Lenovo has its own versions of some programs. (My wireless doesn't work either, but my DVD driver does.) I've downloaded some programs from the antiquated Lenovo site, but I'm still not 100%. I have WIndows XP. How can I get Internet Explorer to work properly. I downloaded it from a Microsoft site, Exp 8 is the most resent version for WIndows XP. Nothing newer works.

The "PCI/PCI-e Test" part of the scheduled automated test reports an error every time Lenovo Solution Center runs, since I purched the machine six months ago.  Otherwise, I see no specific error information through this tool.  How do I investigate this problem?  Unsure if this is related but the video driver seems to crash from time to time.  The machine is otherwise reliable.

Hi Ghyathoo,  
 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
To decode for Result code WMB01R010-RL7YJE , since this is an internal code best that you call in lenovo tech support for the recommendation and interpretation.
 
Would you experience any problems like freeze up or BSOD?
Are you using virtualization?
 
Can you try to check if virtualization is enable in the BIOS , 
To access the BIOS , turn off and use the One key botton or Novo key (item2 page 82) to power on . 
Novo menu would offer BIOS set up , check on the Configuration/ Advance tab  to disable. 
Similar discussion here .
 
Re run individual diagnostics online and if needed , to update LSC .  
 
Running alternate diagnostics like belarc and speccy can also help if there is a synonymous error then have it reported immediately for recommended fix. 
 
Update us how things go.

Hi
 
I have a Lenovo G50-30 and have noticed a few times that when I run the hardware scan, the only item that doesn't pass is the local area connection, which gives a warning result. The overall scan passes, but I would like to know what this means and if it can be fixed? Any help would be gratefully received.

Hi dreifuss , 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
 
After running the Wireless LAN hardware scan test, some warnings may appear in the results for the ?local connection test? and the ?internet connection test? in Lenovo Solution Center (LSC).
 
These warnings appear due to the state of the network your PC is connected to and not the state of the wireless LAN hardware in the PC.  For example, the user may not be connected to a wireless LAN network or the wireless LAN network may not have access to the internet.
These warning messages do not indicate a hardware issue.  No hardware should be replaced as a result of these warnings.
 
Hope this help answer your query. 
 
Regards

I have a new Lenovo P50 which was purchased for me by a friend while visiting US. Since the beginning there have been problems with touchpad not working. I took the laptop to Lenovo's authorised service center in Delhi twice, and both times was disappointed because the technician refused to look at the laptop making one excuse or the other. During the first visit, this guy was not sure if P50 was covered under international warrenty in India and wanted me to provide a proof that it was. I got in touch with Lenovo customer support and below is the email response I received.  Hi,

This is in response to your request. We want to inform you that all think products come under IWS. So, your product is also under warranty and you will get services in India.

Your system is having carry in warranty, so please go to service center for any services you required.

Thanks
LenovoI was astonished by this reply, becuase this is something I thought the technician ought to know or could have found out easily without asking me to get this information myself and wasting my entire day. I went to the sevice centre the second time with this email, and this time he drops another set of requirements on me. He wanted the original invoice for the laptop along with a copy of passport of the person whose name is on the invoice, without which he will not even look at the laptop. This laptop was purchased from Amazon US and I had the soft copy of the inovice with me...
