I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I bought a G505 w/AMD E1 a couple of months ago, upgraded to windows 8.1 and have been using it daily, pretty good little budget laptop.  Everything was fine until yesterday, when I got done, I closed the lid, laptop went to sleep like usual.  Tried to wake it up this morning, nothing.  Early on it had the pwr LED on as well as the LED for battery, it turns on when AC adapter is plugged in now, but nothing else.I've unplugged it, removed the battery, waited, tried pushing pwr button 10 time and then holding for 30 seconds, and everything in between more time than I care to admit, but this thing is a brick.I really need to get into it, I've downloaded about 3 hrs of a family vacation that I need to edit for my wife's grandma that is terminal with cancer, and she's devastated because I cannot get into the laptop.Please let me know if I need to get it serviced, or there's a way to bring it back to life, thanx! OH! And I tried the one button push to restore to factory, no luck there either....

A:Dead G505 can't start it up

hi lrosello
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
Things you can try:
 
1. Remove AC and Battery then hold the power button down for 10sec, Connect only the AC adapter and see if that works.
 
2. Try checking RAM maybe if you have two module troubleshoot 1 first by using it in two ports on the system.
 
3. try removing the harddrive and see if it will show any difference when powered on.
 
You can check this guide for reference on parts removal.

Note: If you are not comfortable with removing parts please call Technical Support as any damage when removing and replacing parts are not covered within standard warranty.
 
Hope this helps
Cheers!

A:G505 - Power port

Hi Darrenj,
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
You can have the Power System Checkout done on your machine as directed here on the hardware manual (page 21). Having isolated that the ac charger is working ok and yet there is no LED status indicator that would turn on then you can review the disassembly of the cover to check for probable loose DC in port as it may also be as simple as loose contact or if needs replacement of the IO board and cable.
 
If you need specific tools then consider having your local service center check on it.
 
Update us how it goes for you.
 
Regards

I recently attempted to reboot my Lenovo G505 from a hybernated state. Much to my surprise (and shock), I encountered a white screen. I attempted to reboot the system by force, to see if that would resolve the issue. Now, my system boots up just fine, but the pre-installed screen will not even light up, nor will it be detected when I attempt to identify it under Control Panel. Thankfully, I have another screen that I am able to use to actually visually interact with the system, but I still would like to know my options for repairing (or possibly replacing) the original screen. Like I said, the system is operating just fine... it only seems to be the screen itself (and the camera just above it) that's inoperable. Thank you in advance for your time and assistance.

A friend has a Lenovo G505 which suddenly developed a weird issue. I new it was booting by using an external monitor but laptop screen was blank. Having tried everything including One key restore to original settings, updating bios to v2.04 from Lenovo site and also booting from a Knoppix (linux) usb stick, the blank laptop screen persisted.Eventually, I discovered the only way to get correct boot so that laptop screen display is visible (including Lenovo splash screen, and incidentally, the webcam to be recognised correctly in device manager) is to press power on button and immediately close the laptop lid and reopen it. I am convinced the bios/uefi needs the laptop lid to be closed to detect that the screen is available for display. This makes me think the 'laptop lid swich' may be involved somehow. I know there is a small magnet at the top  of the screen behind the plastic bezel but does anyone know what exactly that interacts with inside the laptop? Is it something on the LED board, the left end of which is about where the magnet is when the lid is closed. I've read that modern laptops have a 'reed switch' activated by the magnet but I can't see one.

i bought this Lenovo G505 about a year and a half ago and for the most part i love it, it does everything i need it to do within reason. but i have had one nagging problem with it the whole time and up until today i blamed it on different size sticks and memory speeds, but today I bought brand new corsair select DDR3L 1600mhz memory 2x8gb (16gb). sadly the problem still exists.it seems that no matter what stick of ram is in the second slot, that while the bios recognizes the total, and windows claims to recognize the total, the second stick is not USABLE memory. please view the photo to see exactly what i am referring to. I have tried a multitude of different operating systems (win 7,8,8.1,10, countless linux distros) all give me the same problem. I would REALLY like to know how to fix this problem as currently having 16gb of memory and only 7.45 usable is heartbreaking...

A:Lenovo G505 RAM Confusion

Hi  3razar3,Can you check if windows is using the half of the memory as hardware reserve? To check this open up Resource Monitor from Taskmanager. If you see that your missing memory is being reserved  for hardware do the following steps. Open msconfig - > click on Boot - > Advanced options - > untick maximum memory, restart the system. Hope this helps. Cheers,

I have a Lenovo G505 that recently appears to have died and I can't get it to start up.  I initially thought it was a bad AC adapter and replaced that, but even with a new adapter I don't get any response from the laptop. I tried removing the battery, removing the power plug, and holding the power button for 20 seconds.  Nothing changed.  I tried removing the battery altogether and powering it on (thinking that it might be able to run only on AC power) but that didn't work, either. I don't get any sort of power indicators anywhere - no LED lights, no sounds of it booting, no BIOS, nothing.  It's like it's not getting any power at all.  No matter how long it's hooked to the AC adapter, I press the power button and nothing happens. Is there any further advice or anything to try, or should I just call it dead and start looking for a replacement?

Hi.

The cd drive clicks on start up, the indicator lights work fine and the hard drive works (it spins and is not damaged, I took it out and tested it) but there is no sign that anything is being read from it.

A:Lenovo G505 DVD drive not working

Hi Arm-1969,  
           
Welcome to the Forums  
 
As per the query we understood that you are facing issue the DVD not working in your Lenovo G505 laptop.
 
Check with bootable DVD, does the DVD is detected in BIOS?
 
To resolve this issue, remove the affected filter drivers.
 
To do this, click on Start,  type regedit in the search box, then click on regedit in the Programs list.
 
If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, key in your password or click continue.
 
Locate, and then click the following registry subkey: hkey_local_machine\system\currentcontrolset\control\class\{4d36e965-e325-11ce-bfc1-08002be10318}
 
Note that there could be several instances of the registry subkey that is mentioned in the above step so make sure that you are in the appropriate registry subkey before modifying the upperfilters and the lowerfilters values.
 
To verify that you are in the appropriate registry subkey, make sure that the default data value is
DVD/ CD-Rom and the class data value is CDrom.
In the right panel, right-click upperfilters , and then click delete . Click yes to confirm the removal of the upperfilters registry entry. In the right panel, right-click lowerfilters , and then click delete . Click Yes to confirm the removal of the lowerfilters registry entry... Read more

Hi there, My Lenovo G505 is not booting anymore. I had wanted to scan my laptop with Kaspersky Rescue CD, and therefore, I wanted the laptop to boot from the CD. So, I searched for how to boot the laptop from CD, and I followed the solution provided in this thread by Solid_Cruver: https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Lenovo-P-Y-and-Z-series/Lenovo-Z500-BIOS-legacy-support/m-p/1124815/hig... As written in that post, I first booted to BIOS Setup, then under Exit, I changed the "OS Optimized Defaults" to "Other OS". I then hit F9 to load defaults. Then, under BIOS, I changed to Legacy boot and Legacy first... both options that are shown one below the other. After that I saved the BIOS setup and exited. After that when the laptop boots, it just keeps showing Lenovo on the screen, and under that the dotted circle keeps on spinning, and nothing else happens. After waiting for a while, I turned power off by pressing the power off button for a while. Then, I pressed the Nova button, but no display comes up, but the light for power remains on. Again, nothing happened there too. Just a black screen, even no blinking cursor, or any kind of display. After waiting a while, I pressed the power button, and laptop powered off. How do I get to the Nova screen, or get the computer to boot? Or, how to just set the BIOS setup again to what it was before? This isn't my laptop, but of my friend, and I don't want it to go bad :/.

It again shows the screen with Lenovo written and the dotted circle keeps spinning. What else do I have to do to get the laptop to boot normally from the OS? Under the BIOS settings, I noted that Secure Boot was Enabled, but the Secure Boot Status was Disabled. The laptop isnt booting because of this setting? How do I get the Secure Boot Status to Enabled, and how do I get the computer to boot normally from the OS on the HDD?

When finished, hit Load default settings (just right above it) then set these additional settings:

I am becoming increasingly frustrated with my Lenovo G505. It has failed to connect to wireless since I purchased it. When in warranty it was sent away on a couple of occasions for 'repair'. However it continues to show connected, but then drops to limited every minute or so. Its been locked away for the last few months due the above frustrations, but wanting to work from home I thought I'd give it one more try. I have browsed a number of topics,but have not had much success. Is anyone able to point me in the direction of a possible known fix? Hoping Lenovo can restore my faith.

I've been considering upgrading my G505 (A6-5200) to Win10 from Win7. I haven't found any chipset drivers for Win10, though I've seen quite a lot of people using win10 without an issue. Is there anywhere I can get those drivers from? Thank you.

A:G505 Win10 chipset drivers?

Welcome to the Lenovo Community !
 
Windows 10 like all the previous Windows versions have native drivers built into the operating system for support of older hardware.  If there are no Lenovo chipset drivers available for Windows 10 and your model then the laptop is using the native chipset drivers.

*Edit* Sorry, I was a little ahead of myself there, I take it the Windows installation doesn't see your new HD when the window for the Disk/Partition selection comes up.
 
Are you trying to install Windows from a USB key? Because I've seen this on many occasions, and switching your key over to another USB port on your machine gets rid of this error. Try another USB port for the installation, preferrably a USB 2 port, as the USB 3 ports require a driver in Windows to function properly.

Here is our problem, and solution, I hope it helps some of you! 
 
PROBLEM: We got a new router, BT Smart Hub (upgraded from a BT Home Hub), and my Dad's computer a Lenova G505 suddeny would not connect to the internet. All other devices connected fine. His laptop got a 5 bar signal to the 2.4ghz network but when opening an internet page, it would not work. It did not pick up the 5ghz network at all, all oher devices did. 
 
SOLUTION: Firstly we updated the drivers from the Lenovo website to ensure we were all up to date. This did not fix the problem, however I still feel it is an important first step.
 
As the laptp was not picking up the 5ghz network at all (it is the same wireless network name but followed by -5 and other machines were) we thought this may be part of the problem. We found out via Google that to support 5ghz, his broadband capabilities would beed to show the letters A / AC. 
 
To check his broadband capability we did the following: opened Device management, went to Network Adaptors, clicked on Boradcom, went to properties, clicked on advanced. The advanced section showed a long list, we found Broadband Capailities on the list, and were shown a code that contained the letters B / N. This means that his machine does not support dual band conection, so that is why the 5ghz was not showing up!
 
We thought perhaps because his machine does not support dual band, and we have two networks running, this may be why the in... Read more

   Hi, I have G505 laptop. I've had it for 4 years and the DVD drive has worked all that time. However, it has now stopped working. When I insert a DVD or CD they do not play, and when I look at the DVD drive it states that no DVD is detected. Does anyone know a solution for this? Thanks

A:Lenovo G505 DVD Disc drive not recognised

Check with bootable DVD, does the DVD is detected in BIOS? To resolve this issue, remove the affected filter drivers. To do this, click on Start,  type regedit in the search box, then click on regedit in the Programs list. If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, key in your password or click continue. Locate, and then click the following registry subkey:hkey_local_machine\system\currentcontrolset\control\class\{4d36e965-e325-11ce-bfc1-08002be10318} Note that there could be several instances of the registry subkey that is mentioned in the above step so make sure that you are in the appropriate registry subkey before modifying the upperfilters and the lowerfilters values. To verify that you are in the appropriate registry subkey, make sure that the default data value isDVD/ CD-Rom and the class data value is CDrom.In the right panel, right-click upperfilters , and then click delete .Click yes to confirm the removal of the upperfilters registry entry.In the right panel, right-click lowerfilters , and then click delete .Click Yes to confirm the removal of the lowerfilters registry entry.Exit registry editor, and then restart the computer.

A couple of months ago, a black ink like spot has appeared on my screen, and it expanded to a 3 to 4 cm big irregular shaped spot. After a while, a long, 4 mm wide line appeared at the bottom of my screen covering the full lenght of it. The spots continue to expand, and remain at the screen even when the power is off. The laptop is a year old, and has been treated with care, with no mechanical maletreatment, or what so ever.  It is frustrating, as it covers the content completely. Furhtermore, I am experiencing extreme problems with the operating system, which is too slow even for the simpliest tasks, such as opening Internet pages, or starting Microsoft Office (it takes more than 5 minutes to start the Word). The system has been reinstaled, all the drivers have been updated, but the problem remains. Please, help. I have invested a lot of money in a product of such a low quality, and I would like to know is it worth the repair, or I should toss it into the garbage and buy a new one, never returning to Lenovo producer. ATBK.

I purchased a Lenovo G505 laptop for my Girlfriend back in 10-01-13, I purchased it with a exstended 1 year warranty,, but anyways, she likes to play Sim3 ALOT, and i mean ALOT, which isnt a graphically heavy game for a A6 APU 4 GB of DDR 3 Ram, but i know that the game takes ALOT of resources for some reason, but i notcied while she was playing it it takes nearly a half hour for her game to load before she can start playing, So i decided to upgrade her RAM and HDD, to a SSD and 16 GB of Ram, which brought her APU shared graphics memeory from 256 to 512 ( which to me seems pretty low but from what i could tell there is no way to change that, I was hoping for atleast 1gb), all said and done, her game boots up pretty fast now, only takes about 10 minutes, which is great, but since the upgrade, her laptop has started to get really hot, which this laptop usually stayed pretty cool, I even Dust it out regularly with a can of air, and keep it pretty dust free. she keeps the laptop closed on top of the TV stand and uses the HDMI cable and a wireless keyboard and mouse, and plays on a TV, for on the couch expeirance, but since then we have had to invest in 2 fans, 1 laptop fan with a 140 mm that runs at 1600 rpm, and a small window fan that sits on the CD drive side of the laptop to help blow any hot air lingering AWAY from the laptop ( dont want it facing the side vent, due to the fan pushing hot air out, and ruin the fan, and fighting with its sell to keep it cool), and still it ov...
