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.)

 Unfortunately, I spilled some watermelon juice on my laptop a few years ago.The spill happened on the left hand side near the fan. It won't turn on any more. I want to try and repair it, with first replacing the motherboard, then testing various other components, fan etc.My Idea pad y580 motherboard has part number 90000453. (And I had it upgraded to 12gb ram) The only decently priced replacement motherboard I can find however, has a part number of 90000283  (and reportedly has max of 8gb ram). The 90000283 motherboard is made for the Idea pad y580, will it work with my laptop, or do I need the exact same piece? Thank you.

My model of y580 has the i7.Intel says on their site currently that for the Intel Core? i7-3610QM Processor, Max Memory Size (dependent on memory type) is 32 GB (see screenshot.)The y580 has 2 sodimm slots.On the market, there is currently available, 2x16GB 204pin, non ECC, DDR3L, sodimm, 1.35v, 1600mhz RAM. I have checked, and each of these conditions (number of pins, size, error correction type, DDR generation, voltage, and speed) are matching up to what the y580 is compatible with.For what other reason would this ram not be compatible with the y580?Lenovo originally claimed there was a limit of 2x4GB RAM, but I have read quite a few reports of seamless compatibility for 16GB (2x8GB). Based on my current information, there is nothing to say that there would be a problem with the y580 running this RAM (2x16GB.) However, I want to know reasonable assumptions and experience of other users before purchasing, installing and testing.

Hi, so this problem only came in recently but after I try to update windows 10 on my Y580 and tried to power it up the system would not boot. It seems the laptop is running and the keyboard lights are on but the screen itself remains off or black. The first time it has happen I have been able to use the "remove battery" method to where I remove it and re-insert it back in, this has work the first time when I had this issue but when I had to update windows 10 again the issue returned and I have tried the "remove battery" method but to no avail.

Hi, all, first post here, so bear with me. I've had this Y580 for a few years now, and it's been functioning rather nicely throughout, just with consistently high temperatures. A few days ago, the performance abruptly dropped considerably, and so I checked my temperatures. They were absolutely ridiculous, even for what this thing averages; I was doing around 95 degrees on the GPU, and it was eternally downclocking to 135MHz. I thought it was just a cooling issue at first, and tried everything, but then when playing around in Energy Management, I noticed something really strange. If I hit the dust removal button, the fan wouldn't change in sound at all. In fact, I could barely hear the fan. I opened up the back cover and inspected the fan. While it was running, it was running at a ridiculously low speed, and would not speed up no matter what I was doing. This is a serious issue; have any of you encountered this before? Anyone have good suggestions for how I should go about dealing with this?  

A:Y580 Fan Malfunction

Hi ThunderBIrd2678 ,
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
Manual cleaning using compressed air can , checking the gears itself if there are strands slowing it down and reapplying thermal paste ensuring contacts are good as initial step.
 
Uninstalling and reinstalling the energy manager tool from the support site  under power management can help.
 
Since fan system is still mechanical in nature, as wear and tear may now be affecting its performance, you may decide on replacing it if you have neccessary tools and skills using the manual (page 58) as guide.
Thermal module with fan in item 11 page 78 FRU number as compared the parts look up for the part number .
 
Hope this helps answering your query.

First off I would like to say that I very much enjoyed my laptop right up until last night. I had the machine since early 2013 and it worked great, best laptop for gaming I have ever used. However I noticed that the last few months the battery cannot hold a charge (for menial tasks) and the fan or gpu was making an odd noise under load. This began to bother me so I took it upon myself to do a battery gauge reset, to see if maybe the battery was just mis calibrated. After this I decided to check the fan and clean out any dust from the vents and inside the fan, as I've noticed it having to work harder than normal under load, and Temps have been higher than normal. I put everything back together, put the motherboard back in, and plugged everything back into the motherboard, but now the laptop won't turn on. What's weird is I have done this a few times before and the laptop has always been fine. This has really bummed me out, I really liked this laptop. Now I don't have a computer to play games on or do anything. I also rely on the laptop for school. I am not sure what to do. I am guessing that the problem lies in the motherboard, and I know the laptop is out of warranty as I have had it awhile. Any idea how much it would cost for a repair like this? I am a poor college student and I don't know that I could even afford a repair let alone a new computer. Why I am frustrated: thing is, about 2 years ago I got a keyboard bezel replacement from Lenovo and sen...

Hi, I know there have been numerous threads on this, but each case is slightly different, not to mention that I've tried most of solutions described there and they didn't work. I reinstalled Windows 8 system on my Y580 (using OneKey Recovery). Worked ok after. Then I proceeded to apply all the system updates from Windows Update and some driver updates. After that I restarted the laptop to apply changes and the system stopped booting. The HDD is detected. The boot menu at the beginning only had EFI Network 0 for IPv4 and EFI Network 0 for IPv6 and both failed boot. Later the Windows Boot manager appeared at the top but it also fails each time. After the failed boot it then proceeds to show the OneKey Recovery screen again. When I use it, it works, but after reinstallation it's the same - failed boot and OneKey recovery. When I use a bootable USB installation of Win 8.1 (there's none for Win 8 apparently) and try to repair/reinstall etc. that way, I get a message that the disk where Windows is installed is blocked. Any suggestions?

Hi,

I own a Y580-M772CMH 15.6FHD/i7-3610QM/8G/ laptop with Windows 7 and a few weeks ago I used Ccleaner to clean the registry. Like the dumb stupid person I am I did not pay attention to what it was "cleaning".

Next time I booted up my Laptop it failed to start Windows and gave the following message:

Check cable connection!
PXE-M0F: Exiting Intel PXE ROM.
No bootable device -- insert boot disk and press any key

So next time I pressed F2 while booting to see:

Boot Device Priority
Internal HDD: SAMSUNG MZMPC064HBDR-000L1
SATA HDD: ST1000LM024 HN-M101MBB
SATA ODD: Optiarc BD ROM BC-5550H
Network Boot: Atheros Boot Agent

To me it looked like I still had both disks working so I put in a Windows ISO before boot to see if I could repair. The System Recovery Options screen showed me no known existing OS on the device.

So I powered down and used One Key Recovery which told me when I clicked to restore to factory conditions that the partition layout has changed.

Finally I used a bootable Partition Wizard and that showed me this:

Note the negative used value at disk 1.
To my layman's eyes it seems like the SSD and HDD, that are normally combined by a Lenovo software Raid are now separate. And something I deleted with Ccleaner by accident caused it (probably).

Main thing is, I actually don't know what the problem is and so don't know how to proceed.

I am turning to the community to find out if anyone has installed 16GB of memory in their Y580. Lenovo's manual and website says that 8GB is the maximum supported, but some posts have indicated that it might support 16GB. I need to hear from someone who has actually tried 16GB of RAM in their Y580 as to whether it worked as this is the only thing holding me back from purchasing the Y580.

As many of you know the battery guage reset bricks these laptops. I did it and now my Y580 will not boot with battery power alone. The battery charges and works, but if I boot straight from the battery without AC plugged in, the laptop will turn on for a moment then shut off. I tried removing the battery, holding the power button, etc. Even reset the BIOS to defaults. Does anyone have a fix other than replacing the laptop? My warranty is out.

Y580, Win10 I just purchased a used Y580 cheap because it has non-functional USB 3.0 ports. The USB 2.0 port works fine.When I plug in a USB cable, it doesn't register anything, as if there's no power to the ports. Which leads me to believe it's not a driver issue...but I could be wrong about that. My thought was that the controller on the motherboard might be bad, but I don't know much about laptops, honestly. I'm more of a desktop guy when it comes to hardware. I'm not even sure if the USB controller is onboard or a separate board in the laptop. Any ideas on how to fix this, or am I just out of luck? Thanks. - Brian

I have an Ideapad Y580 with a 32 gb SSD and a 1TB HDD. I tried to upgrade to Windows 10 but it failed so I had to do a clean install. I'm trying to go back to Windows 7 since Windows 10 is somewhat glitchy on my computer (I already updated all the drivers). Since it was a clean install, I don't have the "Go Back to Windows 7" option in Windows Recovery. I made a system image just prior to installing Windows 10. I also have a Windows 7 Repair Disc but when I try to boot with it I get a message that says the version is not compatible with the version of Windows I'm trying to repair. Resetting the PC only gives Windows 10 as the target operating system. I tried calling Lenovo support but gave up after 10 minutes on hold and my warranty is expired anyway. Is there any way for me to get back to Windows 7? Or is there a convenient way to get installation media from Lenovo to go back to Windows 7 with the OEM partitions? I was hoping to avoid purchasing the $130 Lenovo "Complex Services" (I'm not even sure if it would solve my problem). Any help is much appreciated Thanks.

Hello there,I got some issues here with my Lenovo IdeaPad Y580.I was about to give it a new clean installation of Windows 8.1.Finished, it didn't recognize the HDD I installed it on. So I tried to change the boot priority in the BIOS but it seems like I messed up pretty bad.When I start the laptop now it says: "check cable connection! PXE - MOF: exiting intel PXE ROM" It seems like it tries to boot from a server now, as I read in other forums.Excuse my dangerous half knowledge, I am no expert at all.So the bad thing is that my laptop is stuck in that loop, it would restart and the same message appears. I can't enter the BIOS, I tried F1, F2, FN+F2, F12.I read about it in other forums and posts, I took out the HDD and the SSD, pressed B while starting the laptop.I took out the battery pack, held the power button for a minute.I even dissembled the whole laptop to remove the battery of the motherboard, just to figure out it's not possible to remove the battery on that particular motherboard. So yeah, I tried everything I could find online and I don't know what else to do. Maybe try and external keyboard? But the keyboard seems to work, as when I hit fn+f2 the screen goes black, which is the appropriate shortcut. Can anyone of you help me out? I don't know what else to do. I appreciate any help and comments.Thank you!

I started monitoring my hard disk a while back when I was having lots of problems. It was running quite hot and the SMART data showed it was on the edge of failure. I replaced the disk with a new one (Seagate ST2000LM007), and almost immediately it started showing high temperatures as well. Within 30 minutes of power-up doing nothing more than reading email and web browsing, the disk will reach and exceed 50. The fan is working, but seems pretty anemic. I've blown out dust and checked for obstructions, but nothing changed. I really don't want to toast another disk. (I've checked other laptops and temperatures seem to peak at 35C). Device manager shows Lenovo ACPI-Compliant Virtual Power Controller, v 5.4.0.1Running Win 7 Pro, all updates installed.In addition to the Seagate disk listed above, there is a 256G mSATA SSD installed.

Hello, As stated in the title, I have a Lenovo IdeaPad y580. I purchased it approximately three-and-a-half years ago, and only now is it really beginning to chug durings its processes. Point is, I want it to last perhaps another half year or so while I finish saving up for another computer. As a gamer, I'm fine with the limitations of the GPU, but sometimes my laptop legitimately has issues processing stuff, such as loading Google Chrome properly. I know enough about Windows to clean out viral matter and uninstall programs that I don't use that are running in the back. But does anyone have any tips or tricks to make this hunk of junk last maybe six more months before it becomes unusable?TL;DR I need to make my laptop run at least a reasonably sub-average to average level for six more months.

I had to re-image my Y580 as WIndows 7 somehow got corrupted.  One key recovery failed so I spent $60 for recovery media.  That was a painful, time consuming process as it took over an hour to install from the media and then SEVERAL hours installing all the Windows updates as the media installs an ancient version of WIndows 7.  I decided to image the C drive after all the Windows updates were installed so if I ever needed to re-image again it would be a much faster process.  I imaged all 4 partitions to an external drive with Maxium Reflect.  I then decided to try restoring the C drive image to make sure it worked.  Bad idea.  After restoring the image, my Y580 would no longer boot and I had to start all over again with the recovery media.  I suspect the SDD drive setup somehow makes normal image restore an issue. Questions:1.  Has anyone come up with a way to successfully image and restore the C drive?2.  Is there a way to update the OKR partition with new image of Windows 7 with updates installed? Thanks,-Chuck

So I just installed a Kingston 120GB mSATA SSD SUV500MS in my Y580. I got an HDD with Windows 10 installed on it. But when I turn it on now, it does not get past the Lenovo splash screen. I cannot even load the BIOS. It says Entering SETUP, but nothing happens then.If I take the SSD out, everything goes back to being normal. Any ideas? Thanks!

A:long booting y580 issue

Hi Pyrethrum,
 
Make sure there are no USB Devices plugged in When you power ON the computer,
 
Also try performing a BIOS Reset.
   Boot to BIOS by tapping F2 when you power it on
    Once inside BIOS Hit F9 and then Hit F10
 
Check if the problem is solved,
 
Hope this helps
Cheers!

What is Lenovo IdeaPad y 580 keyboard key type is it ic12 or ic20 or ic47

A:Lenovo Y580 keyboard key type?

Welcome to the Lenovo Community !
 
I assume that you are trying to replace a missing key cap on your keyboard.  Since there appears to be three different style hinge assemblies for your model, the best way to find the proper replacement is to view your missing key's hinge. You can then compare it to the laptop key seller's images on their website.  
 
Can you post a picture here?  That would assist others in helping you choose the right replacement.

I have a problem, normally I press Fn and F5 to bring up the window to enable/disable Wireless Lan and Bluetooth. But it's suddenly stopped working and I cannot switch on my Wireless Lan. This is on IdeaPad Y580 running Windows 7. 1. When I press Fn F5 no window opens. 2. When I press Fn F6 my track pad is enabled/disabled as normal, although I do not see the notification on screen. 3. When I press the Fn and volume or brightness controls, they work perfectly, but again I do not notification on screen, the bars showing level of volume or brightness. 4. Also the One Touch Recovery and One Key Theater buttons are not working. But the audio Mute button is working. 5. I have uninstalled the Lenovo Energy Management software and reinstalled it but no difference. 6. I have checked the BIOS and Wireless Lan is enabled. 7. I also saw that in Task Manager I cannot see utility.exe running. This is really causing me problems, can anyone suggest a fix? Thanks, Dave.

A:Cannot enable wifi using Fn and F5 keys - Y580

Finally fixed it... 1. I uninstalled and reinstalled the Lenovo Energy management Software - No difference. 2. I uninstalled and reinstalled the drivers for the Wireless LAN - No difference. 3. I noticed that the OneKey Recovery button wasn't working, so I decided to uninstall and reinstall the OneKey Recovery software...it worked!  4. In Task Manager I can now see that utility.exe is running as below:  Now I have no idea why the OneKey Recovery software would affect the Lenovo Wireless Device Settings?  But I hope this might help someone else! All the best, Dave.

I currently have a Lenovo Y580 Laptop computer with a dvd burner optical drive. I am wanting a blu ray burner where I can watch iblu-ray movies, and occasionally burn files to a Blu ray disk. I have found this drive, but I'm not sure whether it is compatible. It appears there are several different sizes for optical drives. Any idea whether this will physically fit in my laptop? Thanks for your assistance.

A:Blu Ray Burner for Lenovo Y580 Laptop

Unless it is designed for that machine, and it states that it will work, I doubt very much that you can use it. Laptops, in particular, are very proprietary in hardware, and though some few standard pieces may be interchangeable, for the most part, even the connections for optical drives are often the company's own. You'll need to get a drive from the manufacturer or one that they say will work. (Or advice from someone who has actually gotten one to fit.)

Alternatively, you could look into an external case with a USB connection for a BluRay drive. Since most people rarely use them, except for data storage (double-sided ones can hold 50 GB's which makes a great storage medium) or videos, and they are expensive, it may be best to buy just one that can be used on all machines and keep for future ones. I have found no problems with speed playing BluRay over a USB 2.0 connection (In the worst case, the contents could be copied to your hard drive before playing, anyway, though I have never had to do that). And, of course, since a drive that supports all optical media for both reading and burning is only slightly more expensive than those that support fewer types, it is worth the money to get a good drive. Just another idea...............

Does anyone actually know if the "Dust Removal" in the energy management program actually works to remove dust from the laptop? I'm a bit reluctant to open up and dissect my laptop to check for any dust accumulation at this point, since everything has been running fine.This question came to mind since I saw that the filter at the bottom of my laptop was kinda caked in fine dust - wondered if the same was inside my laptop. I got the laptop in December 2012.

A:Dust removal in Ideapad Y580

hi marshchen,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
That application can only minimized collection of dust in the Exhaust system of your Laptop.
    Since the process of the vents is to get air fom the outside to pass through the heatsink . Dust collection cannot really be avoided.
    
   One symptom of a fan and vent dust is that when the vents blow very hot and minimal air and the laptop is heating up more than usual.
 
A yearly cleaning would be ok.
  You can refer to the Maintenance Manual of this model on how to open the cover and get to the heat sink.
You might also want to refresh and apply new Thermal paste to the Heat sink.
 
Just be careful on the plastic parts and also wear an anti static starp. If you're not comfortable doing this, You can opt to have a repair center do this.
 
Best Regards
Solid Cruver

I'm replacing the screen on my Y580 and I was wondering which LCDs I can use. I used the part number N156HGE-LA1 to search for new screens, but I found out that screen model is used in other laptops besides Y580 (such as HPs). That made me doubt whether it would work in my laptop or not. So then I tried another number from the screen: 209945U That one seems to be exclusive to the Y580. I found that screen for sale, but it's more expensive. Will the N156HGE-LA1 screen work for me even though Amazon is saying it's for a different laptop, or will I have to use the 209945U screen instead?  Also, is there a certain brand someone could direct me to which makes this screen and you know is good quality? Thanks so much. - Brian

I'm 11 and using Ubuntu 17.04 Linux on my Lenovo Y580. The problem I'm having seems to effect every operating system I've used on it. The touchpad flips out randomly and sometimes stops working at all. Sometimes it will start to work but only for so long. It's will massively teleport up and down until I start hitting it a little bit, but this is bothering me and hitting it probably makes it worse. Any help would be appreciated. feel free to ask more advanced questions just because I'm 11. I will understand for sure.

My Y580 case broke.  First it started around the plastic "grill" on the heatsink (on the left side of the laptop).  Soon it was the lower portion of the case around the hinge.  Then it was the other side of the laptop near the hinge and despite some gorilla glue and duct tape.  Now my Y580 case is in bad shape.  I went online to buy a new case and see that others have this same problem.  This is definately a design flaw.  It's not just me.  Will Lenovo fix my laptop?  It is out of warranty, but a design flaw is a design flaw.  I would hope Lenovo would like to keep a good name and a good customer.  I'm being honest here - if they don't I'd have to be a bit stupid to buy more from Lenovo.
