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.

A:Lenovo G580 screen goes white display

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,

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.

Work through these Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7 which will uncover most problems. Report back results as there may be other steps indicated.

Why did you install all of these other drivers? Did you already have performance problems or just create them?

Do you have a System Restore point still available before this problem began?

What else have you installed? Please post back as screenshot of Control Panel's Programs and Features after maximizing the page, using the Snipping Tool from Start Menu: Screenshots and Files - Upload and Post in Seven Forums - Windows 7 Forums

Hello, who can help me please? Whats the problem in my situation? See video at: https://youtu.be/cbisQJYSTzk From one day to another the notebook wont start(as always it was connected to electricity), no leds lit and there is a clicking sound if the battery is mounted. Without battery only power supply there isnt the sound but same problem. Electricity comes to the notebook ive tested. The jack cable is ok too. I have removed the battery and power and pressed the power button for 20 seconds. It has not brought success. Sorry for my english (im from germany). If it is the motherboard, is the repair easy? What needs to be changed? Where can I find cheap replacement? I ask for help please.. thanks..

A:G580 wont start, black screen and clicking sound

Hello,
 
Welcome to the Lenovo community!
 
If you know that the AC adapter is working properly and it outputs correct voltage but the laptop is still dead, most likely you have a power issue on the motherboard (or power board on some laptops) and it has to be replaced.
 
Before that, from your observation, it does look like there's a problem with the CPU since this is where the clicking noise is coming from. - Link to picture
 
In this case, if the machine's no longer under warranty, I would try and reseat the CPU, reapply a thermal paste and check for burnt areas on the motherboard. Otherwise, I would contact Lenovo and report the issue as you may need to send the unit for warranty work.
 
As for purchasing a new motherboard, I wouldn't do this yet unless it's recommended by someone who have access to low level motherboard repair tools. You may opt to send the unit to Lenovo (for out of warranty repair) or to a local computer repair center to verify the parts needed to restore the system back.

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.

I have had two BSOD's so far where the screen turns to static and it registers as BSOD. Static meaning like stereotypical old tv's rainbow lines running across the screen.

The first BSOD it went to static and then restarted on it's own, giving me the 'Windows encountered a problem' on restart

The second BSOD it went to static and I had to manually restart.

Graphics card is a refurbished sapphire radeon hd 7870, probably has something to do with it.

Need help pinpointing what exactly is wrong, thanks!

So the idea of the start screen in Windows 8 is that that is the interface we are 'supposed' to use most often -
Well I left if up the other day and I got thinking.
It stuck me as boring after a while - static.

Perhaps the choice of having some sort of slow paced background animation would solve this?

What do you think?

A:Anyone else find the start screen a little ... static?

It would be nice to be able to change the background at all!

But I thing eventually the idea is that your main or left most group of program tiles would themselves be dynamic. But it may be a while before much of that takes off.

But I agree, being able to change the background, including to an AVI/MOV/WMV file would be nice....

Currently not at my computer, so won't be able to provide much information until tomorrow. Just want to see if anyone knows a possible cause off the top of their head.

This seems to be an isolated event, as neither the laptop or headset has had any major problems in the past. After forcing the computer to shut down using the power button and rebooting, it worked normally for many hours.

So I am running Windows 7 Home Professional x64, and the laptop hasn't had any major problems. I plug in my USB headset (Microsoft LifeChat LX-3000) and the screen suddenly turns to this.

At this point, the laptop is on but completely unresponsive.

My apologies if the post isn't up to par, it's my first time posting here.

The screen has a 1/8" white line at the bottom that shows up about every 3 seconds--now the entire screen rather blinks like static showing up on bad TV reception with the white blinking line at the bottom.

Every once in a while, my HP Pavilion 25bw monitor randomly goes static (like an old TV with no connection; grey,black, and white dots flickering). This occured very little when I first purchased the monitor and I thought nothing of it, but lately it has been occuring much more often and it is quite annoying. Once the monitor goes static, I have to turn the computer off by pressing the power button but once I turn the computer back on the monitor seems to go back to normal. Please help me fix this problem!

A:HP Pavilion 25bw getting a static screen

Hello @Screenname12341, I understand that your HP Pavilion 25bw Monitor randomly displays a static screen and you have to turn it off to get it to function properly again. I am providing you with some steps you can try below:Step 1. Unplug the power cord from the back of the monitor and the wallStep 2. Hold the power button down for at least one minuteStep 3.

Navigate to the Factory Reset option and select itStep 6. Change the cables connecting the PC to the monitorIf the above steps did not resolve your issue you can try the monitor on a computer or other device to see if the issue persists.

I wasn't sure where to put this so i decided to do it here since it might relate to some recent malware/virus removal i had you guys help me with.

I had the dreaded scour.com bugs plus a lot of trojan and other virus issues a couple weeks ago.

Since you guys put me through step by step help there have been no virus issues or pop up problems and i was instructed to continue using the TFC (temp file cleaner) program i downloaded from here once a week to make sure the computer kept running fast. (which is still not as fast as it use to be but much better than it had been.)

I made the routine of every Thursday running the TFC scan and then restarting the computer when prompted. This Thrusday i noticed that something has changed.

The first Thrusday i ran the scan it seemed fine and deleted some temp files with no real affect other than when it restarts the computer the screen will kind of give this stark white staticy look to it before each step until it reaches my "password log in page" for windows vista.

However Today (well it's after midnight so yesterday, thrusday) when i ran the scan and came back into the room to restart it, it had gone into "sleep mode" (which i've never been able to prevent it from doing even when i have the settings for sleep mode turned off). But instead of the squiggly lines bouncing around a black background that it normally has, it was Stark white and when i wiggled the mouse it made a staticy look before goin... Read more

So,

I've been looking around for about 2-3 months now for help for this issue. I've google searched for it an no one gives me the answers I need.

Problem:
Every time I open a computer game or even my internet browser now, I get this weird few seconds of static in my headset, then, the screen sort of pauses slightly before "loading" fully. I started to notice this about 3 months ago, and any time I google it I get mixed solutions. Also when running DxDiag now I'm getting "DxDiag has detected that there might have been a problem accessing DirectShow the last time this program was used."

Questions:
Is this a video card problem? It feels like to me it is but I want to make sure it's the video card and not the motherboard.

Specs and Information:

I attached the DxDiag to this post. Also, the computer is 3 years old and I never reformatted it (I know that's bad), but I don't think that reformatting it would solve what's going on.
3 months ago a small shock went through my old headset into the machine after I touched my mic, it didn't act up until about a week later which may have short circuited something.
I did get an error a few weeks ago telling me the front USB ports were malfunctioning and the machine wouldn't start. After unplugging everything, it worked fine and the front ports are working fine again.
I did air dust the inside recently, still same issues.
Power supply is 700w and I have 2 displays.

The solution was to make the method static. I could then use the first variable declaration 9see below) without any problem.

Though, it still isn't clear to me why the method has to be static.

Hi folks,

Computer 1 is in the living room and is used for email/browsing/word processing/IM and other relatively low demand applications and is the most likely to be switched on, hence the Networked Drive being attached to it.

Computer 2 is primarily the hub of my Recording Studio (grand name for a cobbled together hobby type affair) but is also used for email etc. It is located in an outbuilding but is no more than 7meters from the router and gets signal and link strengths that rarely dip below 50% and more likely average 65%

Computer 3 is my wifes college laptop and is only really part of the network so she can use the printer attached to computer 1 and back up her files on the networked drive.

Hello. I need your help. I'm stumped!!!

For the past few days now, I am having an issue. I am 'now' using Windows 7 Professional 64-Bit. I was using Windows 7 Pro 32-Bit. This issue is with both.

This is what is happening:

Approximately 50% of the time (random) when I statup my desktop computer, immediately after the Windows 7 "Windows Starting" and animated Windows flag are finished, but BEFORE the Windows 7 Logon screen, I am getting 2 screens that are switching back and forth between a blank black screen with the pointer on it (pointer and the animated loop curser used by Windows Vista/7) and a blank screen with a so-called 'static' look on it with no curser at all (The 'static' screen looks like the old days that when you changed the analog channel on a TV and there was no TV channel there, you would get that black and white dotted static look). The switching back and forth lasts about a half a second each (very quick) and finally ending up at the blank black screen with no curser/pointer. I look at the HD LED on my tower, and it shows activity, but my screen remains blank and black. The compter never reboots or restarts on its own, it just stays at the blank and black screen. I have to manually reboot the system. Most of the time on the second reboot, I am able to get into my system successfully.

I've seen this before, but it was after the machine had logged in and fully booted up at seemingly random times.

In my case, it was the graphics driver crashing because the graphics card stopped responding because the driver stopped responding (or so Windows thought).

There could be three things wrong here (in no particular order, and it could be a combination)

1. Graphics card is failing.
2. Graphics card is not getting enough CLEAN power from the power supply because of #3... (I don't see your PSU in your spec list you provided. What is it?)
3. Power Supply is failing.

Question: Does it do it in safe mode?

Here's some context: I have a two year old laptop, model Acer Aspire E 15, E5-571-56WG. I noticed a few months ago that two or three screws had fallen out of the bottom of my laptop, and about a month ago, that it was making noises (like one of the internal compnents had broken loose and was suspended inside my laptop). I had one screw with me, as I'd found it at the bottom of my bag, and screwed it back on to the bottom. The small noises were still there though. Anyway, I've been noticing recently (like about 3 times in the past week) that my laptop sometimes randomly shuts off on its own. A lot of people on the internet said it was probably a problem with the fan, so I didn't bother checking it out yet. But about an hour ago, something else happened - the laptop screen kinda stopped working. Instead of displaying the Google Chrome browser, the screen had horizontal, multicolored static lines flickering on it. I shut down the laptop and turned it on again immediately, and it's working fine now, but I'm not sure if this was random or if I should get it repaired. Do you think you could tell me what's wrong with my laptop, or give me some advice regarding it? I take it to school everyday (if that matters) and I'll be needing it next month so I want to make sure it's okay. Thank you

Hi. I have a problem that I haven't encountered before and I'm not sure what to even try with this one.

When I came home (from buying new RAM, ironically enough) my screen was all wigged out. I'm not sure really how to describe it, except it was as if the reception was bad. I could tell that the Windows 7 login screen was there, but everything was so distorted that I couldn't make out any letters or pictures, only a static blur of colors in horizontal lines. Not sure if that makes sense.

Anyways, I restarted my computer and when it came back on, the first screen that has my video card information was fine, then the screen that says F9-boot menu F10-setup etc. came up fine but when the screen that should say Start Windows Normally or Start in Safe Mode came up, it was static again, but this time only gray and black.

Is it my video card? I have an onboard and a PCI, so I guess I could go into BIOS and switch to the onboard and see if it makes a difference. I'll try that now, but in the meantime, is there anything it might be if this doesn't work either?

alright, i switched to the onboard video card and i still have the same problem. is it a hard drive problem or a really bad virus? i'm at a loss...

I booted Windows 7 a few minutes ago, and saw what made me think something might have happened relating to my graphics card. Right before the log-on screen came up, I saw a lot of flickering/static, which I thought was REALLY odd because the PC is connected to the monitor with a digital signal (DVI). The computer froze, at this point and I had to reboot. I'm posting from the same PC, so needless to say the reboot worked but I'm just a bit worried...

It could be a loose connection or the card not booting up properly. Check the Fan on the card ensure its moving.

My computer tends to hang, with the monitor screen showing a lot of static. This happens even when I'm not connected to the internet. I've tried formatting the C: drive (the hard drive is split into four drives), and re-installing Windows2000, but it still happens. (The machine is a Celeron 633 Mhz 64 MB RAM 20 GB HDD, operating software Windows2000 Professional)

I've tried running a virus scan, very often, with InoculateIT, but that causes it to hang as described above. So I scanned the computer for viruses folder by folder, and found that it hangs when I scan the folder named java which is located in the WINNT folder. Then I copied that folder into another computer and scanned it with InoculateIT and it was clean.

Could somebody please help me?

I'm having a rather odd problem that is driving me nuts trying to figure it out, my best guess is it's something to do with the display drivers or some other driver that is loading during start-up. Here's the issue, I wake up in the morning and turn my PC on, the splash screen comes up for my motherboard, windows boots up just fine, next the welcome screen..all is good up until that point. As soon as I get to the desktop I get these weird horizontal static lines...it's hard to describe, the lines don't go all the way across the screen, they just sort of appear randomly, but they mainly are to the right of the screen ( when viewing it ).

While this is going on I sometimes get a random black screen that last for a second or two, then when the desktop is done loading everything all is fine again, no static, no black screens. I can play games, watch movies, brows the web...etc. Now if I restart my PC from this point, everything loads up just fine with no issues, no static or black screens at all. If I turn my pc off then on again, same thing, everything loads up perfectly.

Go to ATI and look up drivers for your graphics card. download and install then reboot. If you still have the same issues. Take out the card and clean it with a can of compressed air then reseat the card. Also check your cable DVI, VGA, cable make sure it is seated correctly and there is no bent pins. Also try another monitor.

Hi all,

Been having some problems with my PC since it was first put together 6 months back, but recently it has become an almost recurring problem.

During games the system will often freeze up. This is accompanied with a series of 'static' lines dancing across the screen and the souns cutting out to a static whine. Usually, the screen goes black, then comes back on, although there is no longer any sounds. Sometimes it never recovers and has to be rebooted.

When it happens seems to be random. League of Legebds only had it happen when the game was really busy on screen. However Diablo 3 (Beta) did it from an options menu, and Super Monday Night Combat did it 4 seconds into game start. League has stopped doing it since I turned the graphics settings lower, butreally based on the spec below it shouldnt have any problem running at max settings.

My PC doesn't have a sound card - it is all done through the motherboard. I nearly always have last.fm (flash based music website) running in the background. My best guess is either there's a sound conflict, or, since the graphics card appears to reboot and League stopped doing it after fiddling with the graphics, there's a fault at the graphics card end.

The site I followed for building the PC did suggest adding a soundcard to prevent a conflict, maybe this is the end result of that?

I managed to get a quick video of the 'static' effect I mentioned when playing LoL. In this case, it never recovered.... Read more

Hi my laptop powers up but won't boot. All I get as soon as it powers on is a blank screen with a STATIC cursor in the top left. It won't go further than that.

I've read about issues with a blank screen blinking cursor in the top left black screen of death. But my cursor does not blink.

I've tried all the solution suggestions given to the blank screen of death and nothing . I've tried changing the ram nothing. Hard drive is fine it's been read and accessed in a desktop machine.

I've tried ram on its own in individual slots and noticed that ram placed in 1 slot I get black screen no cursor.

On its own in the other powers up but all I get is that static cursor crash.

Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated

The LCD screen during boot up has multi-colored static verticle lines 1/3rd of LCD My OS was re-installed on this past Monday. There were not any noted problems. Today I installed Norton SystemWorks Premier 2005 without ant noted problem. I then installed Norton Internet Security 2005 and during the installation it detected that a previous version of Norton AntiVirus was installed and requested that it be removed. I did that and followed the correct steps. And rebooted. I then installed Norton Internet Security with AntiVirus without any noted problem. I was requested to download Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1 and I did and then I was requested to install Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1 HotFix (KB886903). I rebooted the system and during systems boot just right after the first logo of GoBack and in between it and the Microsoft WINDOWS XP logo screen my ViewSonic LCD had multicolored vertical bars extending from top to bottom on the right side of the screen outwards to center about 1/3rd of the entire screen. On a couple of re-starts the color static changed to a white vertical line which looked a little like snow from older tvs and it was on the left side of the LCD screen. Can anyone help me with this?

I've removed the font size and bolding from your post. It does not help with readablity to do this, nor does it get any extra attention.

Problems with the display like that are likely to be Display driver related, inspite of the association with the new installs.

It's not clear whether this problem remains once the desktop is reached, but you should remove and reinstall the Display drivers in any case.

Hi there, internet,

I'm having some issues with my Compaq Presario C762NR laptop. It's a couple years old.

Anyway, recently I'm having two issues that may or may not be related.

Issue one: On the slightest of physical shocks (say, putting the computer down onto a desk) the screen can go black. This isn't "completely unlit-computer-is-off black," this is "screen-is-backlit-black." The computer is unresponsive and the only way I can get back online is by holding the power button down until it turns off and then turning it back on.

Issue two: Occasionally, when I set my laptop down, I'll feel a slight static electric shock (usually discharged near the left USB port). The screen will then go crazy. It looks like lines of multi-colored pixels. Again, the only thing I can do to get my computer up and running is doing a hard-reset.

Third potentially related issue I just remembered: Occasionally, when I try to turn on my computer, the display won't turn on. the power and hard drive LED lights turn on, and I can hear the hard drive spinning, but the screen doesn't turn on. I usually turn it off by holding the power button and then turn it on again. Usually this works, but sometimes I have to do the hard-reboot three or four times before the screen actually comes on with the computer.

Please help me! I desperately need my computer and I do not have the money to replace it right now. I want advice!!!

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

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

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.

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?

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.

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.

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.

A:G580 Factory reset

hi gbar,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
About a Lenovo Factory Reset.
You just Turn it off and Press this button 

 
This will boot your system with option for Recovery.
just follow the prompts and you good to go.
Just remember that this will Delete everything on the current OS and rebuild a new one (Dataloss)
 
 
About Keeping the system Clean. For me....
CCleaner will help you Remove all unnecessary files on the system.
And a good Antivirus Would really help keeping the system from Viruses.
 
Hope this helps
Cheers!

For as long as I remember my Lenovo G580 would randomly stop recieving an internet connection from my wifi, leaving it still connected but without the ability to go online. I have been solving this problem by disconnecting and recconecting from the wifi, however this has been a temporary solution as the problem keeps coming back. I know this is a problem with the computer because it never happens with the other lenovo laptops in the house nor the phones connected to the same wifi.

So I bought a new CPU for my old G580 laptop. I wanted to upgrade from the B960 it has right now (it's the 20150 model). The new CPU is a i5-3320M as it's listed as a compatible part on both the downloadable PDF and the PartsLookup website (I checked with my serial number as well). I changed the CPU, installed thermal paste, everything, but to no avail. Won't even enter BIOS. The "on" LED flashes for 10 seconds, then it shuts down. Installed the old CPU again - it boots without problems. New CPU again - no BIOS, nothing. I have updated my BIOS to the latest possible version (version 5ECN96WW (V9.01), as the newer version shows a "Error 255 - TDK Library Initialization Failed". I just don't know what to do anymore. Could be a faulty CPU, but I doubt it. The only difference is that the old CPU is Sandy Bridge, and the new is Ivy Bridge. But it's shown as "compatible" with the laptop everywhere. It's a shame really...

Hello!  I have a G580 (2189) with an i7-3632QM processor. I currently have 8gb of RAM and after running wmic MEMORYCHIP, I realize I have 2 slots with 4gb in each.  I'm now interested in changing them for 16 (2x8)gb and is aiming for some affordable Crucial memory. I have found a kit called: CT2KIT102464BF160B and from what I can find, this seems to fit my computer. Can anyone confirm that? It would be great.  And just out of curiosity, are there any 16gb memories available for DDR3L? Since it seems like my processor can handle 32gb but I only have two slots, I would need 16gb in each.  Thank's in advance.

hi Laurent,

The Lenovo Energy Management is probably limiting / protecting the battery from overcharging.
 
Can you try the following:
 
1. Apply this Plugged in not charging message fix (Windows 7 only)
 
2. In Windows 8, uninstall Lenovo Energy Management and test. If battery stays charging, reinstall Lenovo Energy Management and observe:

3. If you still get the same error, try to:
a. turn off the computer and remove the battery and AC adapter.
b. press and hold the power button for 30 secs and reconnect the AC adapter
c. turn ON the computer and continuously tap F2 to boot into the BIOS, when you're in, press F9 to load defaults and press F10 to save and exit.

A friend had a malware attack, a beeping error on Chrome about a Windows Defender error running Win 10. She managed to shut down Chrome and then shut off her computer. She tried turn back on, but it would not. I managed to start the computer by removing battery , AC power and the bios battery. The only way to turn on is to remove all of the above and then reinsert bios battery and connect AC power. The keyboard does not work properly, types mostly 6s and a few other characters (ie the shift key types an 's'). No wifi, no CD, no mouse touchpad. I can get into Windows 8, which I restored from factory partiton. Did not affect the operation. I assumed that the bios must have been over written, so I downloaded an update, but it will not install. Program goes through the motions, but the old bios is still there. I am using an external USB KB and mouse. I still can not get into the bios. Is there a way to "force" a bios update?

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?

Welcome to the Lenovo Community !
 
The G580 models requires a minimum of a 65 watts, 20 VDC, charger/adapter.  The CPA-A065 model you have shown is compatible with those requirements.  If you can find a 90 watt charger, that would be even better.  The 90 watt will run cooler and charge faster when the laptop is in use.
 
Page #115 of your model's Hardware Maintenance Manual lists the 65 and 90 watt chargers for your model.  Here is that manual for your reference.....
