Lenovo g770 boot problem

Q: Lenovo g770 boot problem

My wife's G770 refuses to boot -freezes on the opening page. It seems to be trying to boot from something other than the HD. Pressing F12 while switching on sometimes results in a list of boot devices 10 minutes later and then I can boot from the HD. I have re-flashed the bios to no effect. Any suggestions would be welcome. I am computer literate. Thanks

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.

From What you can see, my Notebook, has OverHeating problems. Let me Explain Everything, by first giving some info about this Notebook.I`ve bought this NoteBook 5/6 Years ago, (Lenovo G770) and works Fine (sort of).It`s in good conditions from what I know, no Major Damages(From my Point of View), but it overheats too fast, only in some environments, like when I start up an Heavy SoftWare.(But before it does reach Critical Temperatures it shutdowns "Obviously") The Temperatures on Idle are still high but it works Great even on those temperatures, but it would be a lot (lot) better if the temperatures were much lower. Noticeable Problems (Probably related to OverHeating) : The Fan is very Noisy. The Out Take Grill/Vent near the fan is slightly broken.Never Replaced the Thermal Paste. Pictures + Technical Info  The Graphics Card, Temp. Didn't appear but on idle is near 60 usually , but when I start up an Heavy SoftWare it goes in less than 20 seconds to 80  and in 30 more seconds to 99 and it shutdowns. http://i.imgur.com/WelLO4I.png [I do Clean my NoteBook often, and remove all the dust.]

I know this is a somewhat bad idea. But my warranty has expired, and I think I could use a better CPU. I have a Lenovo G770 (20089). I think, my chipset is: Intel HM65 (05) and I'm looking at some quad-core replacement.My current i5 2430M has 2 cores, and 4 threads running at 2.40Ghz along side Intel HD3000 and AMD Radeon 6650M.  In the datasheet for this model, I've seen it can go up to i7 - 2620, but that's a dual core cpu as well.  So my question is, can it be done, are there any quad core cpus I can install, and does anyone have any experience or knowledge on this topic?  

A:Lenovo G770 CPU Upgrade

I would like to upgrade my G770 with i3-2330m. Is it possible with i7 2630qm?Like the mainboard (Intel HM65 chipset specifications) it should be possible? Any experience?Is it also possible to add a graphic card? Some models of G770 have a AMD radeon 6550 card inside?

Hello, I have a Lenovo G770 20089 laptop. Could you please tell me if my laptop supports UEFI? And if yes, please help me find the UEFI options (for example, enable/disable) in the BIOS because they do not seem to show up anywhere (in the latest BIOS offered on the Lenovo site for this laptop, which is version 3.10). Thank you very much.

Hi, I've damaged the screen of my Lenovo G770 (operating Windows 7) to the point where you can view nothing on the screen. I want to connect my laptop to an external device (TV), and have read that you can use the FN button plus the relevent F# key, which in my case is F3. I have plugged the laptop via HDMI to the TV, however the shortcut for changing to an external monitor is not working. I have also tried pressing the windows button and P. I suspect this isn't working as my laptop is at the log in screen and I am obviously not logged in. When turning on my laptop does not auto-snap to the text box for typing in your password, so I have to manually click on this, which is a problem when I can't see anything on screen. So two questions;1) is there any other way I can connect the laptop to an external device,2) is there any way of logging in without having to enter my password. Thanks in advance,Sam

we've dealt with these problems before, unfortunately this time we cannot find the onekey recovery for this particular model.  ive scoured the net and come up null.  basically the system image and recovery image is corrupted on the msata ssd.  regular recovery media will not detect the ssd nor will the bios.  the OS partition is intact and not corrupt.  ive tried rebuilding the bcd to no avail.  normally we can generally get a system image from the manufacturer and backup files and reinstall via image, but Lenovo refuses to issue a recovery as the warranty expired on Jan 1st 2016.  So basically the customer is out a pricey computer because lenovo will not provide a recovery, even with serial and proof of purchase.  Traditional reinstall will not work either as it needs to be flashed via an image.  i find it to be ridiculous as the customer has no recourse to correct the issue.  i have verified the ssd is functioning correctly via an external adapter that I use to work with msata/m.2/mpcie etc.  Im at a loss here on what to do as Lenovo is zero help.  Does anyone here have the recovery for the yoga 2 pro please and thank you.

I just inherited a G770.  The manual describes how to change the switchable graphics using Catalyst Control Center, but says this is "on select models".  This program does not appear to be installed, but the previous user of this notebook cleaned off a lot of pre-installed software.  The notebook itself has a sticker that says "Switchable Graphics*" and the asterisk of course says this is an optional feature.
 
How can I tell if my notebook has switchable graphics with the ATI Radeon GPU?

I am trying to install a windows 7 / XP dual boot on a Lenovo 550P I recently purchased. I have had no problems setting up a new partition and formatting it, but whenever I try and install XP on it, I get partway through the installation process and always get a blue screen of death. It tells me that there is a hard drive error.

To test this, I installed a copy of Vista 64 on the partition with no problems. I wiped the drive and started again with XP and had the same problem.

I am now wondering if there is an incompatability between XP and the hardware in my system. The system specs are:
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
CPU: Intel Core i7 720QM(1.6GHz)
Chipset: Intel PM55
HDD: 500 GB
Memory: 4 GB

I am wanting the XP OS so I can use my old 32 bit compilers. I have considered reformating the entire drive and making it an XP machine, but do not know if there is an intrensic incompatibility between XP and the hardware.
thanks.

welcome to sevenforums!
Where did you get your windows xp cd? If you downloaded that cd from utorrent, there is a small chance that the cd isn't bootable or corrupted.
Also, I have had similar experience on my HP g70. It wouldn't install windows xp no matter what I try. I cannot run the installer from windows of course (application hard block) and whenever it boots up, it would have a disk warning.
I think that some manufacturers include something in their bios to make sure the system is stuck with vista or beyond, or that perhaps, the new hardware available in the nine years since xp made its entrance, made the xp incompatible. I mean, can your xp recognize your cpu or chipset?
Perhaps the only possible method would be to run xpfrom a virtual machine.
Judging from your system configuration, virtualization wouldn't be that bad, it would run pretty well
Thus, my suggestion would be to install windows 7 and simply run it from XP Mode. For that, you will need a copy of windows 7 professional or ultimate (tad bit more expensive than home premium). Or you can buy a home premium and install something like virtualbox.
Seriously xp, is more trouble than its worth. Even if you manage to install it, you will need a TON of times getting all the drivers for it. Xp doesn't have generic or native drivers so you will need a flash drive to store the drivers lol. Windows 7, however, has generic drivers for almost all modern hardware, so you will ahve a better "out of box" exp... Read more

Hello all! Yesterday, 06.12.2015, there was a Windows 10 update to the build 1511 for x64 (KB3122947). Since then, the webcam is marked with an exclamation mark in the hardware panel. Right clicking on it and asking Windows to make an automatic update of the driver doesn't solve the issue, as an error is encountered during the installation. I looked at the Lenovo download page, typed G770 and... there is no drivers for Windows 10. Even worse, it's not even listed in the list of Win 10 compatible devices, but I had the free upgrade to Windows 10! Can anyone help to bring my webcam back to life again? Note: Lenovo Companion doesn't want to start too, asking for a driver, rebooting and asking for the driver again, endlessly.... Thanks in advance for your help!

remove the battery, un-plug the ac power, press power button for 30-40 seconds, replace the battery and check if it works.also, you can try to remove/replace or swap the ram sticks. after then, you should be able to access bios to change the order to use recovery discs.

I have a G770 Core i5 machine build 7/2011.  Current BIOS is 3.06 and I recently changed from Win7 to Win10 OS.  After getting a Solution Center update to work in Win10, I found that my system is not supported for Win10 (but works fair -freezes intermittently but seems to recover) and also that there was a Win 7 BIOS update (version 11) with release date of 5/20/12. Given my update to Win10 are there any known problems with updating the BIOS?  Is it wise to flash the new BIOS or leave good enough alone? ThanksDana 

A:G770 BIOS Update in Win10?

Flashing the BIOS should be done ONLY if it solves or provides a solution for a known bug / problem that is impacting your machine.  Performance improvements are also another, less trusted reason, but anytime you update a BIOS chip it can have unintended outcomes, upto and including turning your machine into a fancy doorstop.
 
Always ...
1.  Make sure you are using your AC power adapter
2.  Download the update file via hard line connection to the Internet
3.  Back up your critical files, make recovery disks
4.  Have a means to restore or re-flash the BIOS if necessary.
 
Good luck.

hi hakaa,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
If I'm not Mistaken you want to boot the system to your Installation Media,right?
 
First you can try the hitting F12 when you press the power to turn it ON.
   If your Lucky the BIOS is already configured and hitting F12 should give you the Boot menu and will let you choose to boot from CD/DVD, HDD or USB.
 
If hitting F12 did not give you Boot Menu Option,
Turn the system ON and start hitting F2, Now This will Let you Boot into the BIOS and will give you option to change the Boot sequence,
 
Hope this info helps,
Please let s know if you have further questions,
Thanks,

So everything has been working fine on my laptop until about 10:30PM EST tonight. I bought it new in August 2011.
Specs:
 
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium
CPU: Intel Core i7-2630QM @ 2.00 GHz
RAM: 8 GB
HD: 750 GB
BIOS: 45CN36WW
 
It's always been a fine machine with NO problems.
However, last night there were Windows 7 updates that were installed and then restarted my computer. I had not gotten a chance to check exactly what they were though. About 10:30 this evening, flash crashed in Mozilla Firefox which is not that uncommon, and from there Firefox closed, and so did my Microsoft Word and Excel apps that were open. From there, my computer began to shut down and restart. When it went to restart, all it could do was go to the opening Lenovo screen which gives you the F2 (setup option) and F12 (multiboot menu option) as it typically does. Besides a thin strip at the top that appeared after about 30 secs that only displays moving static that eventually will just stick, that is where the boot process ends. No Windows 7 screen, and certainly no opportunity to boot into safe mode to check for any problems. The screen freezes and goes nowhere.
 
So basically, all I'm getting in terms of boot options are lenovo features, not windows 7 features, meaning it won't boot into windows 7 or windows 7 safe mode no matter what I try. The biggest problem here is that I have no windows 7 disc to even try to boot from my dvd drive.

So I removed its hard disk and installed the dual boot one, but only windows 10 start, no options for selecting  the ubuntu Os and Windows (grab loader or windows loader). Do I have to make changes in settings?. so that ubuntu OS can be detected, and use it. It is most important one, since all my works are in this Os. Thank you in advance for your help.regardsHuu

The disk that was sent to me is a USB written in Universal Disk Format - never seen this format before. It was uninitialized so i considered trying to activate it in a few ways, through diskpart in windows, and also by cloning via linux and adding boot flags to the partition it was written to. No luck, though. I'm reluctant to do much more, considering I paid money for this drive; what gives? How does one use this mysterious little drive?

Hey,I really need some help with the following issue: Details:HW: Y520 with 16GB RAM, GTX 1060, SSD (GPT) + HDD (MBR)SW: Win10 pro - including latest updates. On GPT based SSD and in UEFI mode.BIOS: latest one is loaded Problem:In short; The FIRST boot each day is unsuccessful, but the SECOND right after the failed attempt is always successful. More details:This also happens, if I switch the notebook on after not using it for a few hours, like 3h<So during the first attempt the notebook is just freezing and and I have to press and hold power button. The last thing I can see is the lenovo logo and the stopped spinning circle animation. Notebook doesnt react to ctrl+alt+del.The strange thing is that right after these 1st attempts the 2nd boot attempts are always successful, windows10 loads in and no problem after that. What I already checked:-Windows event viewer: There are no records from the failed boot, I guess because windows is not even loaded.-Drivers: All drivers are installed-BIOS: I didnt see any related setting. The OS was installed in UEFI mode and bios is set this way (UEFI)-I run all the quick and deep hw diagnostics test on lenovo support page - No issues.-Win10 reinstall: Even after a clean install the freezes are still happening. Installed win10 twice but no change, still freezing.What causes the freezes!?If needed I can make a video as well.Thanks in advance!

My G50-80 will not boot. The Lenovo logo appears but not the loading wheel, and it hangs endlessly at that screen. The onekey recovery button yields the same result. No boot menu. Also, the power light and charging light are both lit, even though the charger is unplugged. I've tried removing the battery as well. Haven't been able to find any other instances of this issue. Anybody have a clue? Mod's Edit: Additional information added to Subject line for clarity of issue.

Hello Lenovo Forums, System SpecsModel: Lenovo IdeaPad V570-1066A9UProcessor: Intel Core i5-2410M 2.3 GHzRAM: 6 GBStorage: 640 GB HDDScreen Type: WidescreenGraphics Card: Intel GMA HD 3000Size: 15" screen and 5.47 lbBattery Type: 48 Whr (Watt hours) First I will provide some background on what happened. I updated my old laptop (was running Windows 7) to Windows 10 a while ago. It was many years old and struggling to run Windows 10 efficiently. I decided to try and set up a dual boot of Windows 10 and Ubuntu 18.04 LTS today in order to make it a more useful machine and just to try some things out. I was following guides from online to help me setup the dual boot. I was using a live USB with Ubuntu installed on it through Rufus. Everything throughout the following guide went mostly according to plan until the last few steps:https://www.tecmint.com/install-ubuntu-16-04-alongside-with-windows-10-or-8-in-dual-boot/Towards the very end of the installation procedure, my installer crashed. It was a weird situation because the drive was partitioned correctly and apparently already had Ubuntu installed on it, but the installer crashed and gave me an error. I continued with the guide, dismissing this error because it looked like Ubuntu was installed correctly. The only part of the guide didn't work as expected was that the GRUB menu didn't show up after rebooting my computer. It just booted Windows like normal. I then tried to change the boot order and that's how I ran into ma... Read more

A:Changed Boot Order and Lenovo V570 Won't Boot

I would suggest that you disconnect the AC, remove the battery, remove the bottom cover (just the T shaped one that covers the HDD and RAM), unplug the CMOS battery (black disk with red and black wires next to the RAM), hold down the power button for 10 to 15 seconds, and then reassemble.    That should reset the BIOS to its defaults. Hopefully you have not overwritten Windows bootloader information on the HDD, but it is too early to tell.
