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

I just came back from the loop of Autorepair/Diagnosing your PC loop of death..So now I need to do a onekey recovery backup now that everything is working again.When trying to use OKR my sys partition is too large for the recovery partion, so I tried to use the external which has plenty of room (3Tb), but I can't click start since it is greyed out. It is a USB 3 external. Does it have to be bootable or something?My other problems is that in my efforts to make sure I had the latest OKR version, I inadvertantly replaced the one it came with (8.1) with (8.0)...It used to be a yellowish theme, now it is blue themed. The file I installed was okrw818002105.exe .And it still won't let me backup to the external.Any idea on how I could get my original OKR 8.1 back?

I have Y570 win 7. Recently windows crushed. I have Onekey backup on external drive. I've done a back up of my disk D and my backup software spit out disk problem error on Onekey backup partition. So Onekey does not work. I tried this and this solutions but without succsess. So are there any other ways to restore from onekey back up like OneKey bootable CD?Thanks

A:Y570 recovery without onekey

Hi zhenurik , 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
 
Have you also tried One key Recovery from user backup pointing to the external backup that you have created?
 
It would be great if you also have created a repair disc to attempt repair on current windows .
If you have exhausted other repair methods check on this link for alternate ways to recover but this is not for the Onekey back up recovery as this would help recover Windows corrupted file. 
 
At the moment , we are not yet sure of the integrity of the partition or the physical harddrive. using a rescue image may help system boot up on a separate operating system and run diagnostics.
 
Try to consider repair options first and retrieval of your information as needed.
Update us how it best goes for you.

Hello Everyone, I want to try and use the oneykey program which came with my Lenovo Y700 computer to restore my computer to factory settings with all default drivers and apps. I have a few questions about this. 1. Will doing this affect any files on my secondary (d) drive?2. Will doing this slow down my computer in any way? Thanks in Advance!

A:Y700 - Onekey Recovery

Hello amsramen, I also have a Y700 that I had to reset back to factory settings using OneKey. I'm assuming you have the model with both a SSD and a HardDrive which would be the same model that I have. If this is the case, the only drive that will be affected will be your primary ( C: ) drive. All files stored on your secondary ( D: ) drive should remain unaffected. But, I would reccomend you to back-up any important files just as a precaution. When I performed the reset, nothing was affected on my secondary ( D: ) drive and everything was just as I left it. Just the primary ( C: ) drive will be reset. And, to answer your second question. No, performing a reset on your laptop should not slow it down. I performed my reset ~2 months ago and have yet to notice any signs of my laptop being slow. Hope this helps some,Synn

Hey,
 
Does anyone here know a good recovery software that can be set up to boot into the recovery environment when someone pushes the Nova Button (Button next to power button on laptops). I have a Lenovo B575 and I had originally installed Lenovo Onekey Recovery which boots into the Recovery Environment when you push the Nova Button. However I recently upgraded to Windows 8.1 and I understand that is no longer an option. If anyone knows a good recovery software that can do that please let me know or even better if you can find a way to reinstall Lenovo Onekey Recovery in Windows 8.1. I have already tried installing it from the Lenovo website but in order to boot from the Recovery Environment you need to have the OEM and Recovery Partitions and I don't know where to go to get those. Any help is appreciated.
 
Thanks,
-Benjamin

A:Onekey Recovery Software

After wiping the existing OEM recovery partition, I do not think you will be able to get the button to work. I think Levono possibly has some code in the Recovery Partition that responds to the button push at boot. In your other thread you were going to try Aoemi One Key. Did that work okay? I know it will not work with the button push but I believe on a Windows 8 computer, it boots to a screen that gives an option to boot to the Aoemi recovery partition or to boot normally.

Good Day,
 
1) Hoping for anyone to help me regarding the available driver in this website.
 
I'ved downloaded the:
Lenovo Onekey Recovery for Y460p
Windows 7 64bit Home Edition 7.0.1230 And it's always "installation failed" even though the setup had finished. I did this with fresh installation and several restart and still no luck.I tried it with two separate laptops = same probI also downloded the 32bit version of it and ofcourse it prompts that it needs a Win7 is 32bit. 2) And how come some drivers from OEM(hidden partition) have higher "Version" than the drivers from this website. Specifically for Lenovo Y460p Windows 7 64bit. Because re-install from initial (which has drivers already), then I downloaded all 64bit drivers here on the website which I thought has upgraded versions. Any advise would be appreciated. Thank you. Best Regards,Jacob

Hi Friendz, I took Ideapad Y460 laptop with windows 7 pre installed having processor i5, 4GB RAM...etc in 2011 Janauray. I have successfully used Onekey Recovery process and made the system to factory default settings 2,3 times in past. The last time was done almost 1 year back. The system is very slow and found many boot up files and applications and not sure what to keep what to not. So tried again using Onekey Recovery Process having intention to make the system default settings and then install good anti virus. But this time, OneKey Recovery is asking password which was never asked. I dont know what Password it is...tried with many but could not help it out. So installed Onekey rescue drivers from Lenovo site accordingly and tried but still it is asking the same password...Can you guys plz help me how to format/make to factory default settings of this laptop.......Thanks alot for your time on spending this....

Ive been having issue with my lenovo G580 laptop. Its been stuck in a constant startup repair loop.

Using posts on this forum, ive tried to rectify the problem myself but realised its beyond me but Ive made changes using the DISKPART feature of windows at the command prompt stage, and I think ive disabled the recovery options.

Ive tried to use the onekey recovery service preinatlled onto the laptop. Usually just press the recovery button, next to the power button but pressing this now just boots into the system repair loop.

Does anyone know how I can rectify this?

A:How to re enable lenovo onekey recovery

You can try setting the recovery partition active using partition wizard boot disk, then rebooting to try one key recovery again. There should also be a way to relink recovery to the one key button.

But the factory install is an inferior install to begin with so you'd be better off doing the reinstall in the tutorial under signature picture below.

I backed up all of my work and files with Onekey Recovery. The backup went smoothly and there were no errors or problems. I sent my laptop to Lenovo to be fixed, they sent the laptop back with initial factory recovery (basically like a brand new, completely wiped laptop) but when I went to restore all of my files, it only gets up to 8% and then gives an error message "failed to access files" I HAVE to get those files back. It's about 15 years of undergrad, and graduate work, not to mention all my important information and sentimental pictures and whatnot. Has anyone else had this problem? IS there a way to fi this? Maybe apply the .wsi backup files manually (not through onekey recovery)? Or someone fix this in anyway possible. Please any information would help. I'm desperate

I am having issues with onekey recovery because I am trying to factory reset my laptop. I have used it before without issues, but I believe it may have happened after I tried out Windows 10 but then reverted back to Windows 7. If I try to use OneKey recovery through the program, when I select the option to reformat, it just restarts my computer normally. If I try to use the onekey recovery key on the keyboard, it just turns on my computer normally. Any solutions to this issue?

With the help of this forum iam able to sort out the mess (Error Code : 0xc0000225)

The thing is that my laptop lenovo G50-70 came with pre-isntalled Windows 8.1,
when i bought they said to take backup of the OS using OneKey Recovery,
since lenovo is not providing separate disks now a days,i forgot to take backup and i have tried to partition it using EaseUS then in the middle of this process i got an error 0xc0000225,i have solved this with the help of EasyRE neosmart (bought it online)
it worked but the recovery drives and system_drv drive are unallocated,just two local drives are Healthy
if i can make them work again i can get OneKey Recovery work again,
using EaseUS Data Recovery iam able to see the lost drives and files.
Is there any way i can make these drives work again i.e Healthy Partition ?

Hi Anandgs , 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
If you have previously created a One Key Recovery backup before formating the original harddrive on a separate media , with the same model Ideapad Z510 and specifications , as far as I know , you would be able to restore using one key recovery from user back up as an option .
 
This would overwrite current data on the current pc . 
Would this be how you plan on retrieving backup info?

Some lenovo softwares and applications including the One Key Recovery 7.0 will not function properly after upgrading from Windows 7 to Windows 8 as discussed in the Lenovo Windows 8 Upgrade Guide.
 
If you want to create a recovery disc for the preloaded OS, you will need to contact Lenovo on how to go about getting this disc as you can only create it on the preloaded Windows 7 OS.

In good faith i managed to do system image with Onekey Recovery before my drive died fully. I did not expect that restoring would be impossible. I bought new drive, what is 250G smaller (750) but still enough for the restore (500G). I would have NEVER used Onekey if there had been warnings that i cant use it right away on new disk (that has no service partition) and after a day of browsing i even found out that the partitions have to be the same size, making my new HD useless. My only option so far is to to buy new 1TB HD, find somebody with 1TB HD Lenovo laptop, copy Onekey service partition and then HOPE that all works out. Because Lenovo Onekey Recovery fails to do what it is supposed to do - provide security, i feel i have to make sure that noone of my family or friends ever buy Lenovo products. I need either a program that can extract files from the backup image system or simple way to rebuild service partition and upgraded version of the application that can restore on smaller file system. How it all is right now is absolutely horrible.

Hey. So I recently bought a Lenovo y700 and my family accidently installed something called Chip Digital GmbH installer through Techradar while trying to get another program, and while I deleted it and the folder it created when it ran, my computer doesn't seem to run any differently, and my antivirus doesn't find anything, I'm kinda freaking out. I can't seem to find much information on it.I have a few questions: 1. I'm using Windows 10 Home. If I want to factory reset, there seems to be both a onekey recovery option from lenovo and a reset your pc option from Windows. Which should be used? Do they do the same thing? 2. Is there anything I should know about doing a factory reset? Will it delete EVERYTHING including the Lenovo apps and antivirus that came with the computer? Or will it just be like when I opened my computer for the first time? 3. I have a restore point from a few days ago, but have been told that spyware can potentially spread if you do that. Is the restore point a better option than factory reset? I don't have many personal files that I can't lose yet, so I assume factory reset is more thorough? 4. Does anybody know anything about this Chip Digital program or Techradar downloads and know if I should be worried? Thanks to anyone who can provide assistance.

Just checking, but did you shutdown the Yoga 900 first, before pushing the Novo button? I believe that if you press the button while Windows is running, you will get a different set of menus and actions.
 
Trying powering down the Yoga 900 completely, and then push the button. That should take you into the Recovery system and enable you to do a fresh install of the factory image of Windows from Lenovo. That will also include Lenovo applications such as Photo Master.

I have an old g550(it came with vista,i have installed win7 three years before). Last two months, every time i shut it down(from start menu), it keeps booting up again, and most of the times in Onekey Rescue. Even if it shuts down correctly(mainly by itself after hours without activity) when i start it up by power button, the most common is to boot in Onekey Rescue. Any idea why happening this?

A small company I help support has been buying Yoga 500s for about a year. The earlier models (IBD suffix) came with a utility called OneKey Optimiser which, by default, has a mode whereby the battery only charges to 60%. It sounds like a useful tool for extending battery life for laptops which spend most of their time on power. The later models (with ISK suffix) don't come with this utility pre-installed. My question is why isn't it pre-installed anymore? Was there a problem with it? Does the Yoga 500-14ISK model do it's battery management in a different way? Thanks, Rob.

I sent in a Lenovo G50-80 laptop for warranty repairs for replacing the failing hard drive.  As part of the process, Lenovo support email reponse told me to prepare the laptop by taking a user backup.  I did this with Lenovo's OneKey app, which I believed that this would do to process.  The laptop came back and the hard drive was replace and re-imaged to factory defaults.  I now am trying to do the OneKey restore of my successful "user backup" but the process is reporting: The program cannot restore the system partition because its structure is incorrect. You may have to recreate the partition to continue I did get another USB key and did a OneKey 'System backup" to it, just in case.  I tested the OneKey restore process with this backup and OneKey will allow it to contine.  I did not continue this test process. I then retrieved the original USB key used for the first set up backup of this laptop and it also gave the same error result message as above.    What gives?  Why can I not restore the user backup?

Good afternoon,  After recently purchasing this laptop - I upgraded to Windows 10.  Due to various issues with W10 being somewhat indifferent to my tastes I wanted to reset the laptop back to factory default. I've obviously studied various recovery guides and when pressing the Onekey button whilst in windows nothing would happen, also when pressing the onekey from a shutdown state and selecting system recovery , it would boot up normally and not in the recovery environment. I downloaded the onekey app and upon starting it into recover it came up with this error"cannot find the service partition"I have since read through other guides on how to check whether the partition is still present (hidden) or whether it has been removed or not.To me it looks like it's gone.. but I can strictly say I have not removed/changed/resized any partitions since receiving the laptop, unless of course the windows10 upgrade has changed something backend.  I know my way around a pc/laptop (1st / 2nd line support so please don't entertain me with the usual - "Are you sure you didn't change the partitions.." etc") so I know what I have and have not done.See below screenshotshttp://imgur.com/a/dFo9qhttp://imgur.com/73Y6GSn

That is what has been reported in the past that OneKey feature breaks after the update to Win 10. Can you check if you still have the goback or restore to previous windows option? If yes, then try using it to go back to the previous running OS. Note: The downloaded OneKey program will only work if the hidden partitions needed are intact. However, as stated it seems that the update made the changes to these partitions. So it is no longer 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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Hi everyone, I hope someone can help me with this.
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?
Thanks

I've just heard the power supply giving off really faint buzz like a second hand on a clock when it's plugged into the laptop, still no power though

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

Hello folks once again I am here to annoy you. Today morning I restored my boot order which was damaged. Now a new problem is there. Brightness control key is not working(Fn+? ) is not working neither on windows nor in linux. All other Fn functions including Fn+? are working fine. Also the ? key standalone or with other keys like ctrl+alt+? is working. Any solution. Thanks in advance.
