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.

Dear serbin,

Welcome in lenovo community,

Please try to,

1- Turn off the laptop >> Unplug the charger >> Remove the battery >> Hold the power button for 20 seconds.
2- Connect the charger only >> Hold the power button for 10 seconds.
3- Turn on the laptop normal and check.

Hello and thanks in advance for your help! My friend has a Lenovo B590 notebook and couple weeks back it upgraded from Win 8.1 to 10 by itself. Now she's unable to connect to the Internet, but connecting to different Wi-fi networks works okay. We've tried to look for B590 specific Wi-fi drivers but couldn't find any. We're not especially tech savvy so we'd be most pleased if someone gave us in detail instructions on how to solve this problem. Thanks!

Hi. I just updated to Windows 10. The first time it start it worked fine, but today the main screen is not working. During the start up i can see the Lenovo logo on the main screen, after that the screen turns black. The external screen works. It looks like Windows doesn't detect the main screen, because on the device manager only shows 1 screen (the external one)! 've disconnected the external screen and i've done a screen capture, then no screens are shown on the device manager:

As I wrote in the title, my Shift and Alt keys stopped working for keyboard shortcuts. However, the Shift key still works when capitalizing letters.

I've been dealing with this problem off/on for the past two weeks and haven't been able to figure it out. I've gone into Ease of Access features and turned on/off all of the available options (Mouse Keys, Sticky Keys, Toggle Keys, Filter Keys). I've pressed Shift for 8 seconds, and pressed it 5 times, and still haven't been able to correct it.

Thank you in advance for any help offered.

Possibly helpful additional information:
I've got a Spanish/Latin American keyboard layout installed in addition to the US English keyboard layout. I toggle back and forth with Left Alt + Shift (which is how I noticed my Shift key stopped working).
I play a game whose controls rely on a lot of Shift key pressing and holding.

When was the last time you used a can of air cleaner on the keyboard? If it isn't from contact wear often keyboards tend to get loaded up with dust and debris!

One example of that is having any snacks onhand around a pc where little bits get passed along from your fingers onto and under the keys themselves. Keyboards are known to get loaded up fast with any foods present!

My husbands ASUS touch screen laptop-keyboards are not working. I know it has windows 8. Core i3 intel inside. Like I said it is a touchscreen and neither the hardware keyboard or touch screen keyboard will do any thing (well it is like the computer understands i am doing something with the keyboard, but not typing. Ex. i will type and the curser line will do nothing but suddenly go like an italicized line. The mouse works and the touch screen works but I cannot type anything. I have wiggled the keys thinking maybe something is stuck but no help. also I have restored it to its factory settings thinking maybe he accidentally set some keyboard sleep command or something. We are both not smart at this, and again it is not my computer, he has it for work, so who knows what he did to it. But yeah, after restore it still wouldn't work and now I am stuck at the registration "getting started" windows and I cannot bypass them....or don't know how to without being about to type. The last it worked he said he cleaned it with pressurized air, so I don't know if that was too much for the keys...if he actually blew dirt into it, or what strange thing could have happened...but the fact that both touch screen and actual keyboard aren't working I am left stumped. I hope I gave enough information on the computer. It has that surface windows...he normally just uses the desk top mode. Ok thank you for any advice.

Out of the blue the following keys stopped working: GHBackspaceWindows [email protected]' The laptop is a couple of years old and a bit dusty, so I took it to the local shop to get the keyboard replaced and cleaned. Seemed to be working fine when I left the shop.

I had a problem with my laptop which is certain key on my keyboard is not functioning. The weird is, it happened without a reason. because after I shutdown doing my work when I turn it on again, I discovered my "s", "d", "g", "h", "\", "m", " left shift", "caps lock" and "~" key did not work at all. I try taking the key off, cleaning underneath, but nothing seems to be working. After that I try to use usb keyboard and it seems the key can be entered. So I thought my hardware is the problem. than I replace into the new one, but still having the same problem. I already waste my money buying new keyboard. Does any one happen to know what sort of problem this is and how I would go about fixing it? Is it related to the registry. My laptop is Acer aspire 4740G, ram 4GB, processor i3 2.4GHz. I hope someone can help me to solve this problem.

A:Keyboard stops working - USB external keyboard is fine

Hello Nysoh

On this virtual way nobody can say for sure what the problem is but if the internal keyboard is not working properly first step is keyboard replacement. If the problem still persists then troublemaker can be keyboard port or keyboard controller.

As far as I know BIOS has nothing to do with this issue.

I have a Dell 7737 laptop and from time to time it develops a firmware glitch where random keys stop working for both BIOS Setup and Operating Systems. After such thing happens neither shutdown (Full shutdown / Fast Boot disabled) nor restart get the keyboard back to a normal state. At this point the only workarround is to disconnect the AC power cord and then either drain the battery or physically remove it.
This laptop's battery cover is not designed for daily removal and it is starting to get loose because of this BIOS bug.
I am running BIOS version A14 but this bug was present since I purchased the laptop with BIOS version A07. Sometimes I cannot even type my password because the random keys that stop working match those it uses.
Please Dell could you provide a BIOS hotfix for this annoying issue?

Just sharing...My keyboard stopped working one day. It sometimes worked when I started the computer but stopped working after that. I followed instructions, and updated the drivers to no avail.On youtube I saw a few video regarding problems with windows 10 and the keyboard not working. I had installed windows 10 about a month before my keyboard stopped working. The video states you must go to the settings, ease of access, and keyboard.  Within keyboard you just change the various switches as instructed. I restarted my computer and to my amazement it worked. I'm just putting it out there should anyone be facing the same problem.

I am trying to help a neighbor sort out a nasty problem. His computer was working just fine and recently the keyboard stopped working. The mouse still works properly. Hooking up a USB keyboard did nothing to fix the problem and also did not work. I tried reinstalling Windows on the notebook, when booting Windows 8 allowed me to type in the username password etc.  but when continuing to boot to the desktop Windows the keyboard is no longer available i.e. does not work at all.  i.e., right click and try to rename an Icon or click on Internet Explorer and try to type in a URL the keyboard does not work. I found numerous sites (the HP forum and other sites) on the Internet encountering a similar problem and none of the so-called solutions I found worked to resolve the problem. I have tried deleting the keyboard driver through device manager, re-booting etc. I tried suggested registry changes, nothing seems to work. There must be a rational solution to this problem but it is beyond me. I might add that when Windows boots up I am able to type in the user's password so the keyboard does appear to be working until Windows actually goes to the desktop and then nothing works on the keyboard.  Also when doing a cold boot pressing the ESC, F9 etc. work to allow me to enter the BIOS so it does not seem like the keyboard hardware is at fault, it has to be something with a Windows 8 setting on boot up to the desktop.

I'm more interested in just messing around with it to see what i can do to improve it's performance.  Not that i plan on it becoming a powerhouse, just more out of curiosity, especially because i'm not super great with computers.  The laptop has the following: Intel Core i3 2nd Gen 2348M (2.30 GHz)4 GB Memory 320 GB HDDIntel HD Graphics 3000I've seen that you can put in an i5 3230M CPU and add 4 more gb of ram.  However, i've seen some people posting that you can have a dedicated video card?  I'm not saying these are the most credible sources, but it just has me confused. I saw this "for sale"  https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/116617And then i saw someone on youtube playing games with that same setup.  I then found this other motherboard that looks to be the same but there is one difference and im not sure what it is.  From what i can tell, one is the standard 20208 motherboard (not sure if that's the most accurate name) and then the other which is the second picture, is supposedly the 55.4TG01.011 motherboard.  I have circled the differences in the pictures attached.  Any help is greatly appreciated! B59055.4TG01.011

Welcome to the Lenovo Community !
 
Sorry to hear of the problem you are experiencing.  I would try removing the optical drive and then try powering the laptop up.  If that doesn't work then remove the hard drive and power up.  Since the click sounds mechanical in nature, that would lead me to suspect either one of those devices.  If the laptop powers up with a drive removed then suspect that drive as being faulty.
 
Your model's User Guide will explain how to remove those drives.  Here is a link to that manual for your reference.....

Hi, I have a B590, Model: 20206. It has Intel Pentium 2020M 2.4 Ghz CPU, 4 Gb of RAM (1 stick), and a HDD hard drive. 1. I understand I can upgrade the CPU to Intel I5-2520M. However, in one of the previous posts, it was mentioned that: "1. Ensure that you purchase the CPU with the Lenovo FRU # on the box. 2. The significant increase between the stock CPU and the Intel I5-2520M is small. If the upgrade cost of the new CPU is minimal then this would be a good investment in speeding up the machine. " What does Lenovo FRU # mean? Does it have to be a specific number or can any Lenovo FRU work? What if I don't get one with Lenovo FRU? Also, how much boost in performance (in percentage) can I expect by upgrading the CPU? 2. For RAM, my current model uses 1 stick of 4Gb ram, so I can add another stick for 8 Gb total right? I understand the following are the needed specs: PC3-12800 DDR3 SDRAM SO-DIMM 204-pin. However, I'm not sure what voltage/speed (Mhz) I should get.  I cannot find the voltage or Mhz info for my current RAM. Please advise. 3. For SSD, I believe any 2.5' SSD with 7mm thickness would work right? Thanks

My B590 was purchased with windows 7.  I bought and installed windows 10 full.  Its seems to have installed but when I connect to wifi thw browser (any one) works for a while then suddenly can't find any sites. Microsoft tells me the laptop may not be compatable with windows 10.  The laptop has the system requirements for windows 10.  Is there some kind of driver or piece of hardware that would be causing trouble with the internet?  Something that I can update?  Right now is actually the longest it has stayed up. I better hit send now.  Thanks for any input.

hi venom13 ,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
  Can you describe the problems you're encountering with the Wifi Connection.
     There is a Wifi Switch by Pressing Fn+F5 to turn Wifi On or Off
-Or-
get the Details of the Wireless Network like SSID and Security type and security Key and Connect to in Maunally,
 
Still It would be best If you could describe more about what's happening with the Wifi Connection
 
Best Regards
Solid Cruver

Almost a year ago now. I had a error for my fan on my lenovo b590 show up, I took it apart. Ordered a new fan from eBay and well it wouldn't fit. It was a little bigger than the old fan. I'm ready to finally fix it again. Can someone give me the link of where to buy a new fan. One that will fit it. On amazon, eBay or another site that is decently priced. I don't want to order another and it not fit. Please and thank you

Welcome to the Lenovo Community !
 
Have you tried doing a search using the part number on your old fan?  The Hardware Maintenance Manual for your model is showing two part numbers for the fan and heat sink assembly.  That may  account for why your first replacement didn't fit.  I am also assuming that you are looking for the fan only without the heat sink.  Here is what is shown on page #85 of the manual....
 
LB59A Thermal Module UMA W/FAN  90201914
LB59A Thermal Module DIS W/FAN  90201913
 
Here is a link to that manual for your reference....

Hello. Yesterday I have dropped my 4 years old Lenovo B590 and I left it alone for a day. Today I'm trying to turn it on and I have a trouble with it. When I do it for the first time it says it does the Automatic Repair and Diagnosing Your PC, and then shows the Automatic Repair blue page with options to Restart and Advanced Oprions. And if I Restart it, it is then stuck on Lenovo first page and does not load further. So then I have to turn it off and on again. And there is Automatic Repair again. So what shall I do? Cause I have a lot of more or less important documents and it would be bad to lose them. Thank you in advance

If you have a data on the hard drive that is important to you, I would take your computer to a reputable local computer shop and have them try to backup your data.    It is possible that the drop damaged the hard drive, but the fact that it tries to boot at very all is a good sign, so there is a good chance that your data can be backed up.  In a worst case scenario, you may have to replace the hard drive (which are not too expensive), but it may be repairable too, but if you data is irreplaceable, I would not touch it until I had a backup in hand. Good Luck,

So the situation is like this, I have b590 20206 I was using partition editing software, so needed to disable some security settings to boot from USB, I switched as the guide from uefi to legacy and bang, the screen is no longer doing anything. I tried to download the official bios and flashing H9ET75WW by renaming it to BIOS.cap then using fn+r usb keeps blinking for a bit and it reboots but nothing comes up. Reading this forum yesterday, I managed to flash this one H9ET92WW, this one is the only one that makes the laptop light up again, I see the lenovo splash screen only with this one, but then it says realtime clock error, configuration changed restarting the system then back to black. Could you please advise what is it that I am missing? Thank you

Hey everyone I have a very annoying problem.  I constantly have the 'touchpad disabeled' icon on my screen, even when the touchpad is activated and working. I found how to disable the icons for caps and numlock, also how to change the icons colour, but nowhere how to disable the touchpad icon. Toggling the touchpad on and off doesn't work. Hope anyone can help me here. The green thingy here (colour is custom, usually it's white on black.)  Thanks in advance
