G580 CPU upgrade - no BIOS

Q: G580 CPU upgrade - no BIOS

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...

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 have a G580 running windows 10 and I'm getting an error message when trying to start. It says unmounted boot volume, and then restarts.  I'm trying to acces the bios so I can boot from a USB or DVD, but it won't let me access it because of the fast start.  However the computer won't fully start for me to disable the fast start, so I'm at a total loss for what to do.  I tried the novo button but it's just sending me to the normal boot screen.  Where it says the same thing.  Thanks so much 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?

Hi  I'm using Arch Linux with the latest stable linux kernel from kernel.org (4.12.8) on my G580. During the boot process, the kernel provides the following messages:[ 0.738821] pci 0000:00:14.0: xHCI BIOS handoff failed (BIOS bug ?) 00010001[ 2.436936] pci 0000:00:1a.0: EHCI: BIOS handoff failed (BIOS bug?) 01010001[ 4.103660] pci 0000:00:1d.0: EHCI: BIOS handoff failed (BIOS bug?) 01010001 The messages appear whether booting in UEFI or BIOS mode. My understanding is that the linux kernel follows industry standards in how it takes host controller ownership from the BIOS. Will Lenovo release an update to address this issue? Here's some of my system info: Product Name: Lenovo G580Lenovo SN: CB20878600BIOS Version: 5ECN96WW(V9.01)Board Number: 3039047104562 I've also attached the outputs of dmidecode and dmesg.

Hey there, I've got a problem with my new G580 2698.After installing Win7, I can't access BIOS. When I'm pressing F2, nothing happens - I even tried all those other fancy things like pressing/holding B and many other ways. I simply can't. There's no "Please wait" or anything. OneKey Rescue System boots system normally into Win7. Also there's no "setup" entry or anything other than Diagnostic Splash in the F12-boot menu's "Apps"-section. This is bad because it hinders me to boot anything in UEFI-mode. Everything else kinda works (got a running Win7 machine). Is there a way to reflash the BIOS? It's the 62CN42WW one. Maybe that will solve my problem? Also any other hints are welcome. Thank you and good dayAstfgl_

Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
I have read an article about BIOS setup issues from the Lenovo Support site,
 
Here is the link,

Solition was:Spoiler (Highlight to read)
1. Try to remove the hard disk and do a reset by draining the power (press power button for 10 seconds without battery and AC adapter).2. Try to enter bios using F2 key.
If you are successful in entering the bios, Load up Bios default settings by F8 key within BIOS. Connect the Hard drive back and check again if you are able to access BIOS by pressing F2 key.If the steps above didn't fix the issue, Bios will need to be re-flashed.

Hi Guys!I have owned this Lenovo G580 for a couple of years, but the 4 GB does not seem to be enough anymore. I would like to upgrade the memory but I have absolutely no idea how far i can go wiht it, and what sort of RAM i should buy. What would you recommend?

A:G580 (20150) RAM Upgrade

According to specs, G580 supports 2x 8GB SO-DIMM DDR3 modules. However, there are reports, that laptop have performance issues with 16GB RAM. http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/answers/id-2336508/lenovo-g580-ram-upgrade.html Before you buy anything, check your current RAM configuration e.g. using HWiNFO, CPU-Z or simply opening laptop's bottom cover. If you have single 4GB stick and want to upgrade to 8GB, then check module's timmings, frequency and buy module with the same specs (not necessarily the same model). If you have two sticks, then you'll have to replace them both. Make sure to buy two modules with the same specs.

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. Perform the following steps on a s... Read more

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.

Hello,I've a Lenovo G580 Laptop (2nd Gen PDC B960, 2 GB, 500 GB, DOS) When I bought it came pre-installed DOS, and then I install Windows 7 ultimate (32-bit, i didn't know at that time, 2nd gen PDC are 64-bit). My friend recommend me to disable UEFI from boot setup before installing any non-genuine OS, so I did disable that. My laptop is working fine, but all of a sudden it started to do random mouse freezes, surprisingly pressing ALT+F4 works like a charm to make mouse work again (by mouse I mean pointer actually, I'm using Touchpad, i don't think its a h/w related issue)I think may be it's because any virus/malware or whatever that was, and also I was planning to change my OS to Windows 8 (it's after 10-11 month of purchase date), so I decided to format anyway, instead messing up with mouse freeze problem.Now strange thing happen at this point -I'm not able to start my BIOS setup, nor able to use quick boot option (to select various bootable device option from list)I try to press recovery key (small button near power button), that open recovery module properly (no glitch/error).but unfortunately I don't have any backup made previously so no use of recovery module.and then I restart my laptop, then I press F2, it shows the first screen of BIOS menu, but my system stuck there (unresponsive state), i've no option else directly turning it off by holding power key for few seconds,..and then no boot menu F2, F12 still unresponsive.means whenever i open recovery module it able to ...

A:G580 Laptop BIOS setup not starting

Hi envolt,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
I?m sorry to hear that G580 is not entering the BIOS menu and hanging at BIOS menu it at all it enters it, performing flee power should resolve the issue; below are is the step to perform Flee Power.
 

Remove the battery and any other peripheral device connected to the computer. Hold the power button for 10 seconds and then connect only the AC Adapter and try to turn ON the computer and enter BIOS menu.
If the issue persists even after performing Flee Power, I would Strongly Suggest Calling Technical Support for Assistance this is the only available option to get this query resolved, Click here to open a link where you can select the country and get the exact contact support number, I?m sure they will be a great help.

Do post us back if the issue still persists.

hi, i just updated my windows 7 to windows 10. should i update my bios?i see no update for windows 10, the latest is only for windows 8.1.this is the current bios i am usingSMBIOSBIOSVersion5ECN39WW(V3.05)thanks

A:lenovo g580 20150 latest bios.

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
==================
General Information:
Fixed:
1. Modified small number keys (such as the key U, I, O¡­) matrix for win8. Cheers,

Hi berserk9999,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
I?m sorry to hear that your G580 Laptop is not entering the BIOS menu, and the BIOS can also be entered by pressing the OKR (One Key Recovery) button just beside the Power button and select advanced setup in the menu to enter BIOS.
 
Hope this helps!!!

Hello Everyone, Its a much discussed yet embarassing problem. I have a G580 with intel i3 processor. The machine is quite old (5 years i think) and has been subject to various OS upgrades, changes, flashes, dual boots systems like ubuntu & windows. Recently to upgrade the machine i bought an i7 processor (yes it is compatible, i checked the hardware manuals).

As soon as i launched it, the command prompt like window opened and my computer froze. That happned a few times. Figuring, it might resolve itself I left it alone for 3 hours but it was still frozen. Also figuring that the tool is for windows 7 i ran it on compatibility mode. Still the same result. I read on some forum a guy had the same issue and it was resolved by reverting to windows 7. So i bought a new copy of windows 7 (yes i really want that i7 processor). Installed it and tried to run the tool. Still, it froze the minute the window opened (another 3 hour gesticulation time was given to he machine to unfreeze itself but in vain). So i tried to access the bios to see if there was a supervisor password preventing me from entering. Thats when i discovered that i could nnot access the bios at all. Ive attached some screenshots in the end to explain. Startup... Read more

I have a Celeron B830 on this G580 20150 laptop that I've tried to upgrade to i5-3210M and with no ability to POST to bios. I have the latest version of the bios there (V9.01). I should be able to upgrade to this processor, correct? If so, could anybody point me in the right direction as far as being able to upgrade to the aforementioned processor? Thanks.
