Hi all

Finally got BOTH my Sony MMC stick AND the SD card to work (plus other drivers) on W8 Consumer preview

All the drivers for this series of computers -- hard to find as they aren't on Sony support sites and I HATE those type of sites like DriverMax where they sucker you in with "Free !!!!!" Downloads and then you have to PAY a fee for accessing a possible part of the site that you are interested in

The only thing that's missing is the webcam -- not that I use it much but I've copied simply the EXE file from an old generic XP app called amcap

This works fine on the vaio so I'll attach as a generic driver in another post

SONY VAIO VPCEH drivers from here

This morning woke up and fired up ol' dependable.... My G580... to check email, log on to my news feed and drink my morning java.
All good until the Windows 10 splash screen showed up...  My keyboard and touchpad were acting as they were not connected.  Drag out USB unifying receiver from Logitech,  attach to USB 3 and wait - no joy.  Attach to the only USB 2 port and it worked, now I have a mouse to work with.
Enabled on screen keyboard from start options (lower right) and was able to enter password, and then log on.  Keyboard and Touchpad totally inoperative, Device Manager showed HID-Keyboard, PS/2 Keyboard and PS/2 Mouse as "unable to start, code 10".  When I looked into the drivers, it was an Elan driver with a version starting with 15. that I had not installed nor downloaded.
I removed the devices from the hardware tree (uninstalling them), removed drivers (or so I believed) but could not install drivers from Lenovo for any items that were showing yellow marks.  Every option I have tried short of refreshing Windows 10 failed to work and all resulted with an inoperative keyboard and touchpad.  The error messages were varied, but most said "incompatible device installed"...
Right now I have resorted to nuking the installed OS (Windows) and am checking on Linux OS - to see if something in the OS core was disrupted.  Will update with results from testing with Linux Mint...

A:G580, Elan Drivers (v.15) and Windows 10 64bit iss...

Loading from DVD version of Linux Mint, OpenSuSE and Fedora all show a good working keyboard, touchpad and USB ports, so it must be Windows 10 conundrum.... So proceding to "refresh" windows 10 using recovery options, saving documents.
Says - "This operation may take a few minutes to complete, depending on the size of the data stored in user folders.  Please make sure you connect to AC power before continuing"...  Hope it does not take forever to do this, but may be only choice.
UPDATE 2:  The process for refreshing windows 10 took 15 minutes from start to finish, now is "Installing Drivers" and preparing your desktop.
UPDATE 3:  The resotre completed successfully, in 40 minutes from start to login on Windows.  The keyboard and touchpad are back (sort of) so it was a seriously flawed update to the Elan drivers that caused the issue.  I know that the Lenovo / Elan drivers version 11 will work, supplying two finger scroll options and such, so will see if they will install correctly.

A:G580 - Touchpad not working

Hi nikunjm022 , 
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
When did it started happening ? If this would be a power management settings then a system restore to go back to a previous working date may help.
Try to reset BIOS settings by turning on the pc using the Novo key (item5 page 2) and choose BIOS settings , F9 to reset F10 to save and exit .
You can also try updating the touchpad driver from the support site. 
We are not eliminating probable affectation of a grounded battery , but would it also happen with an inserted battery while plugged with the adapter?
Update us how things go.

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

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).

If you PM me your email address I will send you a link to the Synaptics driver that works for me. Then you will have to use the HideUpdate hotfix to keep Windows update from changing it.

Hi, I'm replacing a motherboard and have been careful to select one that uses what I think will be a compatible chipset to my last one. (nforce / nvidia).

In my obsession to find one with all the compatible chipset, CPU socket, DDR etc I completely forgot about support for my operating system (Windows 7).

I've bought the board on ebay and awaiting it's arrival, but it is second hand with no drivers or set up disc. I would normally be cool with that as I know I can get the drivers on the manufacturers web site, but in this case, it only goes up to VISTA on the site.

What about Win 7 drivers for this motherboard? Will it even work on windows 7?



A:No win 7 drivers for my m/b on the makers web site.

Just for future knowledge only use Asus or Gigabyte motherboards for top quality.

As for the drivers, if ASRock doesn't support it then you won't find them. You may find 3rd party drivers but its very rare.


Microsoft? Windows? 2000 / XP / XP Media Center / XP 64-bit / Vista™ / Vista™ 64-bit compliant

You can see if the eBay seller will take a refund. Some eBay sellers will.

When I went there and put in my service tag, it listed 36 things for me to download. 9 of the 36 were zip files.

I first installed the app files, 1 or 2 of which were useless since they had to do with a 1515 adapter and my system came with 1300, so I'm not sure why this is listed for my specific computer.

Then I went and dealt with the zip files, though it appears all of them are not compatible with my vista 64bit (wtf?) so again I'm not sure why these files are listed for the service tag I put in (I guess each individual or type of operating system has one).

Secondly I wonder what is a "firmware reflash" since it was in one of those zip files and I let it run and do it's thing (this is more important for me at the moment) did a search and didn't find answers.

I know there is a site where you can get drivers free. I've been to it.. but can't remember the name. I need a couple drivers.. but can't find a reputable site anywhere. I dont have the original anything for this computer, it's a spare and originally had the Compaq restore discs (restore disc are worthless in my eyes) so it's been reformatted a couple times since.

I need the following updated:

* VIA Bus Master IDE Controller
* VIA USB Universal Host Controller
* AMC EZ Card 10/100 SMC1211TX

One of these will make my monitor higher than 16 bit color? I hope?

Is there anything else I need to do to check (after reformatting) to make this thing run more smoothly?

Thanks in advance!

A:Win 2000 computer needs drivers.. where was that site?

If it's a Compaq you should get the drivers from them, they may be "variants" on the commercial ones for the motherboard particular to the Compaq BIOS.

They should be on the Compaq (now the HP) site, they will be free to downlod.

You should never have to pay for device drivers if you go to the correct place (the makers website) in the first instance.

Hi! Which one is recommended for Windows 7: letting Windows Update install all drivers after fresh install or installing the drivers from the manufacturers site (mainboard, gpu etc.) ? In XP and Vista it seemed clearer to use the drivers from each manufacturers site, but after trying Windows 7 RC it seemed to find the drivers very well and the system was stable. I?m installing Windows 7 for my relatives computer and all he needs is a stable system, not cutting-edge performance and features. All he needs is that its stable and basic things like hibernation work.

I finally managed to d/l the x64 driver for this printer directly from MS's update site as opposed to doing it through update driver since I want a copy of the driver so I can load off line like I do with all other drivers for the past 13 years.
I finally managed to figure out how to get the driver without using the "update driver" through Device Manager that automatically d/l's the driver, installs it but with no copy saved for backup. You have to repeat the process if you re-install the O/S which is stupid and unnecessary.

That is after you change the setting under "Device Installation Settings" to "Yes do this automatically" since it won't work if you leave it at the default setting.

The two packages I have are x86 & x64 for this i560. Using the .inf file, both return the same message that is isn't the correct driver. There is no .exe so I can run it by itself.

Canon has some file that is suppose to work, but with no details just how to use it. A fix for the problem. I tried that, but that has absolutely no effect.

Are you receiving any error messages? Like ""page cannot be displayed" or "page cannot be found while attempting to access your account"?

If so, it may be because your web browser's security level is set too low.

For maximum security, you should upgrade to a version of Netscape or Microsoft web browser that supports 128-bit encryption.

For Microsoft Internet Explorer:

Open your Internet Explorer browser and select Help from the toolbar
Select About Internet Explorer
On the About Internet Explorer window, you will be given a version number and a cipher strength (encryption rate)
If your cipher strength is less than 128-bit, please click the Update Information link. This will direct you to the Microsoft web site to upgrade your browser.

You will also need to check the browser settings by following these steps:

Click Start, Settings, Control Panel and open Internet Options
Click the Advanced tab, scroll to the bottom of the scroll window
Ensure that Use SSL 2.0, Use SSL 3.0 and Use TLS 1.0 place a check in the checkbox next to each of these options.

Note: If the cipher strength is already set to 128 bit, you will need to clear your cookies.

A:Sound is not working on laptop. Drivers updated, still not working.

Digital Audio (HDMI) Is the standard Windows driver for sound. You need the realtek drivers which can be found here -

Download the driver (listed under audio).
Make sure the on-board audio is on in the bios, disconnect from the internet, uninstall all sound drivers and reboot.
Install the driver you downloaded and reboot.

An then reconnect to the internet. (This prevents Windows from reinstalling the Digital Audio HDMI before you can install the correct audio drivers).

I am unable to display the complete content of support articles on the Microsoft support site with Firefox. Of course everything looks great under IE.Here's an example... one time, I did not have any issues looking at support articles with Firefox on the MS support site.Any workarounds for this besides using IE when I am researching problems on MS?

Try installing the IE Tab extension.That way you can view IE within Firefox. Is the only way I can see the entire page of a Micr$oft article.

My clients do not load my enterprise list. I have tried the following...
1.Create a sites.xml file using the Site List Manager tool and store it on a network location accessible by all clients
2. Enabled the user based policy Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Internet Explorer\Let users turn on and use Enterprise Mode from the Tools menu"
3.Enabled the "Use the Enterprise Mode IE website list" group policy option and entered the appropriate URL to access the sites.xml file.

Hi Boopme, My neighbor is having problems with his computer and I suggested B/C for help. I informed him that I'm just a junior and am not allowed to help him with his problems. Can someone take a look at this HiJackthis log to see if he's infected? I will have him create an account of his own if he has to go into the malware removal forum. I tried to uninstall and all of it's components to no avail and it looks like he may have some R0 andR1 issues but everything else that I have seen looks okay to me (save the O4's, and removing the remnants of outdated java updates et al). Please advise.

Thanking You In Advance,

I have two computers and both cannot show Both computers are using Windows XP with latest updates and plugged into the same internet connection. Both have IE 7 installed. However I can go to ANY other website on these computers and it will work every time. But when I try to go to the website above, it doesn't recognize it and displays an error.

What is troubling is this website is viewable from any other computer I try it on and has been consistently. I don't know the explanation for it or know how to troubleshoot it. The website isn't the home page on the computers nor does it have any special relationship to the computers that can't display it.

Is it even possible that a virus / malware could create this type of specific issue? And on both computers? Seems unlikely, but then this is a weird problem.


A:Solved: What are possibilities for 1 specific site not working?

It's quite a common problem with very few solutions.

Sometimes, resetting the router can fix it. Usually, it means your IP address is blocked for whatever reason by the website's firewall software or on another server along the path to the website. Try contacting the website and asking them if your IP address is blocked.

Type your IP address in the following website to find out if it's on a blacklist:

Alright, I'm having an incredibly strange issue with the website The Escapist. And it's been going on for the past month or so.

Simply put, when I'm at home on my own home network... None of the videos work. Instead of playing the video I've actually chosen to play, they play this ancient advert for the site itself featuring very old content creators that haven't even been on the site in years.

It doesn't matter what browser or device I attempt to watch them on, if I'm using my home network, the videos refuse to load.

I've narrowed the problem specifically to my home network as I just attempted to watch a video on a separate network and it worked just fine.

I have attempted to contact both the site's staff and the users on the user forums to try and remedy the issue, but I was flat-out ignored on both counts. I don't know if the problem is actually causing my posts and emails to not even work, or if they just have terrible customer support.

Does anybody know what the hell is happening?

Flash Player Videos on my favorite local news site no longer play in IE, Firefox, Chrome, or Safari. I have used the uninstall program (downloaded from Adobe) and reinstalled, but the symptom is the same. Flash videos seem to work from any other page I visit, just not this specific one (they do work on my desktop computer).

Adobe's FAQ suggests firewall, registry, etc. type of issues. I have tried turning off the firewall and I think the uninstall was supposed to help clean up registry issue, but so far no luck.

I have recently undergone assistance in the HJT forum for removing a trojan, but I don't know if this could be related.

I've configured the Enterprise Mode site list as directed in the following article
and set up the gpo to point to my site.  I've confirmed in my site's logs that the xml file is accessible.
However, it isn't working; none of the sites are launching in enterprise mode.  I notice that the CurrentVersion key in HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\EnterpriseMode has remained at 1 and is not updating.  I'm assuming that is the
problem, but I can't figure out why it won't update.
Any advice?

The past couple of days I have been having a problem with google links going to the wrong sites and links not working.

Once in a while a security alert pops up and says my computer is infected and that I have tons of infections in my documents, etc. The windows security box says that I need to delete a bunch of things such as trojan-defender, email-worm.win32.NET and many more becuase they could be stealing important info off my computer.
The run box says it is run by securitycodes.

I tried running malwarebytes, trend micro security, Ad aware, and am currently running Kaspersky.

I have tried searching for removal tools, but don't really know what I am looking for.

I have a G580 that suddenly won't start at all.  It turned off when my daughter was watching a movie.  I assumed that the battery was dead but I do not know that for sure.  She then plugged it in for the night but it never started again.  When I have it plugged in the light on the front is solid white.  There is no light at all when ONLY on battery.   It does not start when the battery is removed and plugged in.  The system is about 1 1/2 years old and to my knowledge the battery was fine.  I have not seen any charging problems from Windows.  I purchased a new AC adapter but that did not fix it.  Does this seem like a power button problem or a motherboard problem? Thanks,Chris

A:G580 Won't Start

hi chberu, 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
Please try removing the AC Adapter and Battery
   then hold down the Power Button for at least 10 sec.
      Then Reconnect only the Ac adapter and see if that will fix it, Then reconnect the battery.
Also try turning it on with the RAM and Harddrive removed and see if that will show any difference on how the unit starts.
If the same problem, even if not Battery is connected, I suggest you contact Lenovo Technical Support for Hardware Assistance or Contact a local tech to check the system board for any issue.

A:G580 no os boots

Sorry to hear about your bad experience with lenovo. I'm afraid that you simply need to abandon Lenovo and go with another manufacturer. I have an under warranty G series laptop that lost its boot parameters. I had previously made backup copies of the OS and a 'repair' disc. Neither of which worked. I called Lenovo support and was informed that I must sned them the laptop and only THEY could reinstall the OS. I was also told that any recovery media for my product was 'UNAVAILABLE'. Sad that they cannot simply sned me media to reload it myself. Instead, they must reload it (obviously they have means to do it but simply will not share it with me). I will not ever purchase a Lenovo product and I would advise you to do the same, and advise any friends to do the same. I am doing so and have learned an expensive lesson. I paid more to get Levovo thinking their reputation was one of support, only to discover it is pointless. I should have just bought a cheaper 'non-Lenovo' product. I plan to go on a tirade and post as much information webwide as possible and deter as many as I can before they get screwed over like I did.Sorry you got screwed too,HatingLenoONO

We have begun to pilot Windows 10 Enterprise in our environment.  As part of this, I've created copies of the GPOs that point IE11 to the Enterprise Mode Site List.  The new copies use a WMI filter so that it applies only to Windows 10 clients. 
Then, I created a schema v.2 version of our Enterprise Mode site list so that I could tell clients not only to run certain sites in IE8 Enterprise Mode, but to open them in IE11.
If I browse to the sites in Internet Explorer 11, Enterprise Mode works as expected; however, if I browse to the sites in Edge, it doesn't work.  Instead, I just get various compatibility problems from the page not rendering correctly, to getting a
"your browser is incompatible" message, to not having the plugins or ActiveX controls needed available.
I thought the whole idea of schema v.2 was to be able to have sites load in either Edge, IE11, or to run in Enterprise Mode with no preference?  How can I get sites to forcibly open in IE11 when needed?
By the way, I've already checked group policy results and verified my Windows 10 test client is picking up the new v.2 Enterprise Mode file and not the old v.1 one.

Provided you have a WiFi adapter installed in your notebook, you will need to turn on WiFi in your notebook then sign on to an available wireless network.  I suggest downloading your user manual and reading up on this subject for more information. If you do not see any wireless networks, you may need to purchase a Wireless Router from your internet service provider.  If you do not have a WiFi card in your computer you will need to contact Lenovo directly to purchase a compatible card for your specific notebook.
Also - make sure you have a good anti virus software suite installed before you go online.
Good luck.

Hi all!I have an older G580 laptop. It came with a B950 CPU and i wanted to upgrade the CPU.I studied the Hardware Maintenance manual for the supported CPU's.On page 101 it says (amongst others):Intel SNB I3-2350M 2.3G 3M J1 PGA Processor.I found one like that cheap and i bought it.I installed it succesfully, but it does not work correctly.Although it has 4 threads, any software or test only detects 2 cores, 2 threads. It seems that hyperthreading does not work.Laptop model is G580  model name 20157BIOS is the latest i could found, version 62CN97WWOthers reported the same problem and solved it by BIOS update, but i cannot find any newer BIOS than this one.Please help me.

I was having hard disk issues with my G580, so I decided to back up my files and restore it to its factory settings using OneKey. The hard disk issues must have affected OneKey because the restoration gets stuck at 49%. I need the backup.wsi so I can put it on a flash drive and restore it from there. Thanks in advance.

A:Need backup.wsi for Windows 8.1 (G580)

Hi Jakesloan15,
Welcome to Lenovo Community!
I?m sorry to hear that the OKR (One Key Recovery) is getting stuck at 49% while performing backup. If the computer is booting to windows the only available option to backup the OS (Operating System) installed in the computer is by creating the Recovery Media in a USB Flash drive. Below are the steps for the same:

My daughter's G580 shows no signs of life. No lights of any kind. I tried the "remove battery and charger cord, press the power button once per second 10 times and then hold for 30", but it made no difference. I tested the the P/S and it's putting out a solid 20.5v. I removed the keyboard and the keyboard bezel and removed the power jack/USB board and checked continuity through the board. Everything seems okay. Is there anything else I could check? I'd hate to think the motherboard is shot. Thanks!  

A:G580 Completely Dead

I have the same problem same laptop model, G580. I did the same troubleshooting pressed the power button 10 times with 1 sec interval in between then pressed and hold for 30 secs.  Somehow the cpu fan starts to run for like 3 secs then went off. Now Im back again with the same problem, no response at all.

A:G580 Wifi problem

Hi Durgaprasad ,
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums
I?m sorry to inform you that the Wireless feature is not working as expected in your G580. I suggest you to download the driver again and while installing right click and select ?Run as administrator? option as doing this will install the complete driver without any error.
NOTE: Please click on "Select Product" then in "QUICK PATH" enter the model no. as G580 select the exact model.

Hope this helps!!!
