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.

So I'm trying desperetly to help my friend fix his laptop, and I'm running into huge issues. My friend is running a Lenovo G580, and cannot connect to the Wi-Fi whatsoever. When you look down at the connections, it shows a wired connection symbol, and it says that there's no connections to be found. Now I know for a fact that this laptop can use wireless, it was used probably a week or two ago by my friends mother. Now, it can't seem to connect to any wireless networks. I've tried just about everything, turning off power saving, deleting the drivers (which we can't do, as the wireless drivers aren't appearing under network adapter), nothing has changed it. The laptop is running Windows 10, and when we go to Network Settings, there's no WiFi tab, there's Proxy, VPN, etc. I really need help with this.

I upgraded my friends HP laptop to Windows 10. The issue now is I can't enable Wifi. The card is recognized correctly in Device manager and no issues is found with it. It looks like it is fine. However in the Network Settings WLAN is set to "Off" and when I try to turn it on it always jumps right back to off. eg. I can't enable it.

HP is now help as they clearly state any laptop bought prior to specific date in 2013 will not get any driver updates from their side for windows 10. (Guys, never buy HP again please...). And updating through device manager only tells me it's the newest driver available.

The Wifi card i Broadcom 4313GN card. I searched for win 10 drivers but did not find anything.They only offer linux drivers on their homepage...

So can anyone either provide a solution to the issue or link to a win 1' driver for this wifi card?

A:Dreaded Win10 WiFi Issue: Can't enable WiFi after Upgrade

I had a similar issue were I was stuck in Aeroplane mode on a cleanly installed W10. Turned out I had to uninstall it from the HID's in Device manager. It's worth checking that he's not stuck in it too. Search for drivers in Windows 7, from the HP website and you'll most likely resolve the issue.

Hi Ruben_Palacios , 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
First to make sure that Airplane mode (page 6) is not enabled, there is a hotkey on top of the keyboard with an icon of a plane.  Check if that would enable your wifi . 
 
Else you can try to set the default of the BIOS ,
Access the BIOS by turning off the laptop and then use the Novo button (item2 page 9) on the left side next to power to turn it on. Novo menu would appear to offer BIOS set up , F9 to load defaults F10 to save and exit .
 
Load up windows and check if there is a wifi icon at the base of the screen.
Check also on device manager if there is any yellow mark or black down arrow  to indicate any need to reinstall drivers from the support website.
 
Update us how it goes.

Hi,

I have a Sony Vaio with a switch on the front that turns WIRELESS on/off. Whenever I turn the switch 'off', I get a pop-up box that says something like 'Alert: Wireless has been turned off'. The pop-up also had an option to turn off this notification. I turned off this notification a week ago but now i would like to turn it back on. I have been looking at a lot of settings on my computer but I don't know how to turn it back on.

Does any one know how to turn the notification back on?

Thanks in advance.

I have Win 7 Home Premium.

Is there an easy way to disable my wireless connection so that (a) it does not enable itself after a reboot, and (b) I don't need to implement the complete process to re-enable the wireless?

Under normal circumstances, the re-enable after a reboot is fine. I can disconnect WiFi from the system tray, and it reconnects after reboot.

But sometimes, I might want wireless to remain disabled after reboot. For example, if I'm doing a database restore, and the database starts synching after a reboot (such as Evernote), it could cause problems :-)

At the moment, I simply switch off the router until the database restore is complete.

Hi

I'm new to 7 (all my desktops are XP Home).

With XP, the OS just connects automatically to my home wireless network.

However with this netbook, I have to do it manually everytime I reboot - it's a real pain.

Not sure if this OS, hardware or both.

Can anyone advise ?

I've looked at services.msc WiFi service and it's set to automatic already ....

thanks

PS Also, is there a way to get 7 to boot straight to desktop, without having to click on user icon or enter password ?

A:Could not enable Intel My WiFi on my laptop

hi K. Sharath,
 
From this microsoft article, it looks like the Intel My WiFi technology is not compatible with the Intel(R) WiFi Link 1000 BGN card and is only applicable to certain types of Intel Wi-FI adapters.
 
To turn ON the Wi-Fi capability of the Lenovo Y460, you will need to:
1. Slide the physical wi-fi switch to the ON position
  - Link to picture
 
2. Press Fn+F5 to enable the wireless card (ensure Current Status is set to "ON")
  - Link to picture
 
Note:
The Lenovo Energy Management Driver must be installed for the function keys to work
 
3. If same problem, boot into the BIOS by pressing F2 on startup and ensure that the WLAN Device is Enabled.
  - Link to picture
 
 
Let me know how it goes.

I've just installed a wireless PCI adaptor (Tenda W322P 11N) in my desktop PC but I can't 'enable' it - every time I double click it starts to enable then stops and leaves it disabled with no warning or error messages.

The system is definitely seeing it as it's listed in Device Manager, and if I bring up Network Connections (using ncpa.cpl) it's listed and shown as disabled. Why would windows stop it from being enabled??

I've tried downloading new drivers from the manufacturers site in case the drivers on the disk were old - no difference. I uninstalled it and removed the drivers and then re-booted so windows would use it's own drivers - no difference.

It seems the system has a problem with it, but surely ONE of the drivers would work if it was a driver problem?

Hey guys,

There is a difficulty i am facing recently in my girlfriend's house only(in all other places it works fine).
I have recently established a WiFi connection for her to use on her phone. It worked great the first day. It continues to work perfect on her mobile. On my net book, though, i can not see WiFi access point in her house.

It appears randomly for several minutes, i try to connect, it does not want to and then the access point disappears for some uncertain period of time. From time to time it appears and works fine from than on but disappears again if computer goes to sleeping mode...

So. at random times my WIFI gets disabled and when I hover over the symbol it says wifi networks available. When I go into the network list it just goes into a loop that never loads the list.

the none of the network list services can be restarted/stopped/started and in device manager I can not disable/uninstall/re-install my wifi adapter.

The only way to re-enable my wifi is to completely restart my computer with a forced shutdown (hold the power button) because normal methods go into loops that never end.
In the past I did fix it for an extended period of time by downloading the most recent .net Framework, this seemed to solve the problem for months until now.

Okay, it's now 13 Sep 2015 and I went around in circles to figure this out. I saw the same issues, to the point of knowing the driver was installed bu tthe Netgear tools never enable the WNDA3100v2, and one cannot manually enable it either.Also tried a USB A6200 device, with the same results.However, I did make this work, and it's kind of simple in my case. I was running the free Zone Labs Firewall & A/V package. And who's A/V package do they use you ask? Kaspersky! Kaspersky has a known issue with allowing proper installation of Netgear USB wireless adapters. So I followed the recommended guidense of a full uninstall of any Netgear WNDA3100v2 and A6200 drivers and software. Then a full uninstall of Zone Labs tools, reboot the computer, then reinstalled the WNDA3100v2 software. Followed the directions, recognition of the USB WiFi adapter was instant. Changed the device setting for being Enabled to auto connect if wired adapter is not connected, and here we are fully functional.Of course now I need to reinstall Zone Labs software, which according to the write up I read at Zome Labs, it should all just work now.Try this method if nothing else seems to work.

Then I have to manually press the adapter button for it to turn back on. I reinstalled my Windows and that didnt fix it. The wireless works as it should after I turn it back on.

Let me start by explaining what led to my problem.

I work for an electric utility, and we issue Panasonic Toughbook laptops to our linemen containing our mobile mapping and AVL (Automatic Vehicle Locating) software. They are all running Windows XP Professional SP3. Our AVL software requires an internet and VPN connection to our AVL server at the office (we currently use Verizon Air Cards and the Cisco VPN client to achieve this). Since implementing this, we have found that Cisco VPN and the Verizon Air Cards do not work well when the wifi network adapters are turned on (or enabled). When they are turned off (disabled) everything works nicely. We can't just disable the wifi NIC's and call it good either because our user's need the faster wifi connections to perform database syncs in the mornings (via hotspots inside each garage bay). Once they are all synced up and out of range of our wireless network, the wifi NIC's are no longer needed. Since the wifi NIC's and Air Cards don't get along, we have been having our users turn the NIC's off using a hardware switch on the Toughbooks cassis. However, some of our older models (CF-29's to be exact) do not have these hardware switches. Our solution was to create two batch files and place them on the users' desktops; one that turns the wifi NIC on, and one that turns it off.

I have an Insignia 8" tablet that I use to listen to an internet radio station. WiFi connection to my 2Wire 3801HGV router. I have it powered by the AC charger. I have the display to turn off after 5 minutes, never to go into sleep mode when powered by AC. After the 5 minutes the display is turned off, the music continues as expected and will continue for hours. But if I try to do anything I loose my WiFi.
Right after the screen is shut off I can enable it again with a stroke. Then the music stops. I no longer have internet access.
Network settings says I still am connected but somewhere the connection is broken. I disconnect from my router and then try to reconnect and it will not. I get, Checking Network Requirements, Can't connect to this Network. The only way I have been able to get connected is to do a restart.
Any ideas on how to solve this problem? I have not found any settings that have been useful. All it should be doing is shutting off the screen. Not go into any other sleep or power down state.

Hello everyone,i dont know why this happens to me. My laptop is lenovo G580 i5 4gbddr3 500gb hdd. It has following config Win10 Win7 Ubuntu14 Default os is win10. I was using windows 7 shutdown lappy and went to play. Now if i try to start it it boots up,lenovo screen appears nothing after that no boot loader screen. Hdd is detected also i removed the battery, bios reset following uefi boot disable. But no success it simply wont boot. Live linux via usb is detected and hdd is also detedcted. Any help. I need in urgent. Thankyou in advance.

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

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.

hi Stefan,

Welcome to the Lenovo Community.

The USB 3.0 port requires a driver for it to work (unlike the USB 2.0 that is plug and play). For Windows 7, install the Intel USB 3.0 Driver v1.0.5.235 - http://tinyurl.com/c7e7lw6

Let me know if this doesn't fix it.

My Levono G580 has been working ok but tried to turn on this morning and nothing happened. I've just got home and tried again but still nothing.
I've had a look on a few sites after googling my issue but the only thing I could find is to press the power 10 times and hold it in on the last press for 30 seconds or to remove the battery and try with just the psu but nothing.
Any ideas guys?

You can also try updating the touchpad driver from the support site.

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...

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.

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.....

Hi
I have a Lenovo g580 with windows 7 home premium 64 bit, whenever it goes to sleep, in whatever way, I get a black screen telling me that windows did not shutdown successfully.
I have completed a system restore to factory settings and downloaded and installed all updates. I have also run all Lenovo diagnostics to no avail.
I have changed the settings in power options, the bios has no power option.
I would appreciate any help
Many thanks

A:[G580] Battery plugged in, not charging!

hi Laurent,
 
Welcome to the Lenovo Forums.
 
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:
 
Lenovo Energy Management      Lenovo Energy Management
Windows 7 32bit / 64bit                Windows 8 32bit / 64bit
cagt26ww.exe                                 em8.0.2.5.exe21.2MB                                             45.4MB
  
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.

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 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.

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?

I usually have my G580 laptop hardwired to my router, so I wasn't checking wireless connectivity on a regular basis.  But it won't connect anymore (it used to work).  Everything else I own workes fine over wi-fi on my Netgear router (Android tablet and smartphone, HP Windows Vista laptop, etc.). I took my G580 laptop to McDonald's this morning and it connects to their wi-fi easily. Any ideas? Thanks, rick8864

hi rick8864,
 
Just to verify, when you connect to the Netgear accesspoint, are you getting one of the errors below?
 
Windows was unable to connect (Win7)
Can't connect to this network (Win8)
 
Things that you can try:
1. Reboot the router
2. Remove the Wi-Fi network and try connecting again.
 
If you have Win7, navigate to Control Panel (icon views) > Network and Sharing Center > Manage Wireless Networks and delete the Netgear accesspoint.
 - Link to picture
 
If you have Win8, right click on the Wi-Fi network and choose Forget Network
 - Link to picture
 
3. Uninstall the Wi-Fi Adapter by navigating to Device Manager Network Adapters. When finished, scan for hardware changes and reconnect to the wireless accesspoint then observe.
 
 
Let me know how it goes.
 
Regards

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.
 
Im almost definently monitering this post constantly so if you reply expect a response very soon
Thanks for the help

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?
