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.

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.

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 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?

You can refer the below thread for BIOS downgrade

Hope this helps.

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?

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.

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,
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 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,

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... So I would hold off. Summary of changes

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 all,is there a way to order new original sticker for Lenovo G580 (like this one on picture)?I have new, very good G580 laptop (model 20150) and I am very satisfied. I replaced the CPU and put the new i7 3610QM in it, 8GB of RAM and SSD.

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.

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.

I looked at the Lenovo Energy Management driver for Windows 10 and upon observing the installer behavior, it extract the ACPI driver files (58KB) to C:\ProgramData\Lenovo\ACPIDriver (this may explain why the installer closes right after extracting).
 
If you're seing an Unknown Device in the Device Manager with an ACPI hardware ID (see image below) then try to update the driver manually and point it to the C:\ProgramData\Lenovo\ACPIDriver folder

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

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 ?

Hey CommunityI encountered a rather strange problem yesterday when my wife turned on her Lenovo we bought a month ago. It is possible to enter the PIN at the Win10 startup page, but as soon as we enter Windows, no(!) key works. Neither Keypad nor Keyboard.We tried:- accessing the Bios, which works and in which the Keyboard works normally- deleting the Keyboard PS/2 Driver from the Hardware Setting Menue, which results in a re-installation of this driver but still the error remains- plugging in a USB keyboard which interestingly receives power and the volume buttons works, but here the same, the keys do not function (and this one also does not work at the windows pin screen).- waited until Win10 installed all updates, even the anniversary update, but still nothing changed (was my last hope. D'oh!). Right now I'm quite lost and don't see why things do not work. Really need some help here...Thank you in advance BTW: It's a  Lenovo B50-80 80EW0521GE as far as I understand it.

Hi there. I'm experiencing problems with a Lenovo Laptop. I cannot log into Windows because the keyboard is not functioning as normal.

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)

Hello all!

It does work in BIOS and I can even watch caps lock light up and go off and turn the backlight on and off.Things to note1) The last software change was 2 days before this happened. It was an update to Windows 10. which is my OS.2) My system restore points will not work due to an issue with AppXstaging (not sure if solvable).3)There are two HID compliant devices in my keyboard section on device manager. and a ps2 compatabile keyboard (which is the one I'm typing on right now) 4) I emphasize that the keyboard DOES WORK in BIOS and during boot, up until the point I can see my windows icon, and Cortana. Things I've tried1) sfc scannow comes back with there being issues it couldn't fix as well as ones it fixed2) chkdsk enjoyed scanning my computer for 5 hours last night and fixing some issues3) I do have an event viewer full of errors regarding filter manager and storage, but nothing I could see with the keyboard.4) Black majik5) I have uninstalled so many devices from device manager to let them install that my mouse hands hurt.

Hi Rose,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Forums.
 
About the keyboard issue I am not sure. I have heard that there is another Patch update for Win 10 that has been released, you may want to check and install that in Windows Update functionality.
 
Method 1:
Try to remove keyboard device via device manager (right click my computer > manage > device management > keyboards > find your keyboard > right click and select remove > then restart your computer)
 
Method 2:
If the keyboard is working fine on the login screen and then suddenly stops functioning when you get to the desktop / metro screen then the problem might be with the Filter Keys - similar to this thread.
Try to turn off Filter Keys by going to Control Panel > Ease of Access > Ease of Access Center > Make the keyboard easier to use > uncheck Turn on Filter Keys then hit apply.
Link to picture
If same problem, you may want to consider doing a clean windows.
 
Method 3:
If it doesn't work, you may need to replace the keyboard, contact Lenovo service centres and ask for replacement for free if you have valid warranty.
 
Let us know how you get on.

Shashi

Hello to all, The Keyboard of my lenovo U410 suddenly stopped working properly. It's not like the whole keyboard doesn't work, but some keys do work, and some don't. (on the top row, only 5 & 6 work. below that only t & y work. But below that all the keys a to l work!)I tried to download the drivers from the Lenovo website already, but these are the same as the drivers that were already on my computer I believe. That doesn't work. System recovery (to the system status of a week ago) doesn't work either.Does anyone have any ideas? it might be that this is a hardware problem, but I've had several problems with my touchpad in the past too. And then in the end with a lot of trying, it worked again. So before I will have the keyboard replaced, can anyone help me with ideas, how to possibly fix this? I'm also fine with recovering the whole system while I have a backup of all my files. I just don't really know how to do this without loosing windows really. Thanks in advance. Regards,Onnea

How in the name of ... can I get my keyboard and mous to work. 
 
It all stops with the first Windows 7 logo (where you choose your language etc)

First of all the support section on Lenovos website must be the most confusing I've ever experienced. I can't find anywhere to send a simple email asking a question. When I enter my product serial at http://support.lenovo.com/ I cant use either email or chat because for some reason those options are not available for my product!I did try to call them, but they don't understand anything. No technical knowledge. So my last option was to register for this forum and hope someone can help me. (Even the forum didn't seem to be updated as there was no section for my model, ideapad 700, only up to 500) Anyway my question is that my backlit keyboard is not working for my Lenovo 700 15ISKYes I fully understand I have to activate it by Fn + Spacebar. But nothing happens. My spacebar has the symbol for backlit keyboard. I was confused at first because I've read that some configurations of Ideapad 700 15ISK does not have backlit keyboard. My Machine Type Model: 80RU001KMX I have tried updating drivers, bios and windows 10. Nothing helped.One thing that are confusing to me is that in many guides/posts for other Lenovo products I've read. "Lenovo settings" should have an icon for the backlit keyboard, so that you whithin that app/program could activate it. My Lenovo settings app does not have this icon. It has lots of options to configure most of the functions for my ideapad 700, but nowhere in this program can I find anything about backlit ... Read more

At any given time, the mouse stops working and the light goes out.
 
Nothing on the keyboard functions.
 
Turn it off and restart it, everything works fine.
 
This computer is brand new and the store that sold it to me had no answers.

Open the Device Manager and scroll down to Universal Serial Bus controllers.
 
Double click/tap on Microsoft Mouse and Keyboard Detection Driver (USB).
 
Click/tap on the Driver tab.
 
Uninstall the Driver and restart the computer.  When the computer is restarted a new driver will be installed.
 
Let us know if this resolves the problem.

Firstly, i want to say that i've seen many topics related to this problem on forums , but didn't find the solution.The keyboard randombly freezes when playing, problem didn't occur while browsing or doing random stuff.In order to make it work again, it requires to push the power button for restarting PC, because after restarting it through START/POWER/RESTART i get that BIOS or whatever it's called table about starting in safe mode, but i can't click on it because keyboard still doesn't work. I've tried updating KB drivers, but it says it's up to date, tried unistalling them on safe mode.WIN 10

Hi there, I am using a Lenovo Y50 laptop and it has worked great for me for close to a year. However, things took and unexpected turn for the worst today. My keyboard and mouse just stopped working, abruptly. This occurred after a Windows update earlier today. Now I get a 'Code 10' Error message on the Device Manager for the 'Standard PS/2 Keyboard' and the 'PS/2 Compatible Mouse' The code reads the following in full for both: This device cannot start. (Code 10)Insufficient system resources exist to complete the API. Please let me know what the next step to take is. P.S. I've tried updating the drivers and have restated countless times. Thank you in advance!

Came across this site while searching for help on this problem.

Tom had same problem here:

http://forums.techguy.org/hardware/1012670-lenovo-g550-keyboard-mouse-problem.html

I have done a full Lenovo Factory recovery & had to use USB KB & mouse upon installation.
Have tried it twice - both were working fine & work in Bios/Dos.

Anyone have any idea?
 

A:Lenovo G550 Keyboard & Mouse not working after Factory Recovery.

What exactly isn't working? The laptop keyboard/trackpad, or an external keyboard and mouse?

If it's the internal, you may need to get the drivers from the laptop manufacturer. If it's the external, it could be USB drivers.

Have you checked Device Manager? Are there any devices with yellow ! ...if so, those devices need drivers installed.

Hi. I was just given a Lenovo 3000 n100 (prod. i.d.# - 97684JU) laptop that had crashed. If I can fix it, it's mine. Yay!

Problem: Keyboard does not work. It has a fresh install of XP with Service pack 2 - which I believe was taken off a disk labelled XP Pro Svc pk 2, w/sata drivers for gateway - key preloaded - which was in dvd drive.

In device manager under other devices there is a list of devices marked as uninstalled drivers -
3 base system devices,
fingerprint sensor,
foxconn bluetooth 2.0 plus EDR,
Network Controller
PCI Device
SM Bus Controller
Video Controller
Video Controller (VGA Compatible)

The registered to in properties of My Computer has all the symbols for two lines. I have figured by trial and error that the keyboard is not working. USB keyboard and mouse do work.

I have a XP Pro cd, version 2002, unopened that I can use to reinstall the operating system - however this one I believe is for a compaq/hp pc.

My question: should I download all Lenovo drivers to a flash drive, and do I need anything special during install?

will computer recognize usb keyboard and mouse if i am formatting and reinstalling opsys?

I am thinking that maybe with the disk they used that may be the reason why the keyboard does not work.

Or can I just install the drivers needed from the lenovo site, and then fix the "registered to" and "users" in the registry?

what would be my best bet here?

thanks for the help here.

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. 
 
Regards

Hey guys!

I recently got a Casio keyboard, with a new MIDI cable.

I'm a music artist and I'm totally new with this 'keyboard-to-computer-via-MIDI' stuff.

I don't know how to connect my Casio Keyboard to my computer with a MIDI cable. I've mostly been using Mixcraft's music library, but I want to start something new with my new keyboard.

Can someone PLEASE tell me how I can connect my keyboard to my laptop via MIDI?

I've looked at other forum posts and contacted a few music artists..........they had nothing.

Please help!

Thanks!
