I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

A: Lenovo B590 + Win 10 = WiFi problem

Hi Swarm23 ,

Welcome to the Community Forums.

Just a headsup B590 may be affected by Win10 upgrade as a non supported model.
Windows 10 Upgrade Guide - IdeaPad and Lenovo NotebookLenovo supported systems list for Windows 10 Upgrade
After upgrading to Windows 10, some software or hardware functions of your computer might be unavailable. In addition, some software issues might occur. Installing the latest Windows updates, device drivers, and application updates may fix these issues

Same reasons why support site do not have compatible driver available at the moment.

What you can try is to go to the device manager and right click on the Wireless card under network adapter . Choose properties. Uncheck box on Power management tab "Allow to turn off to save power".
Go to Advance tab and set roaming aggressiveness / tendency to highest and restart .

Check if there is a better connection , else proceed with choosing native driver offered by Windows .
Go to device manager and right click to update drivers , browse my computer , let me pick from the list and choose among those offered . Try each offered driver starting from top.

Update us how it goes.


Regards

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

Thanks for Posting!
 
Try opening Control Panel / Uninstall a program and uninstall the Lenovo Energy Management / Power Management Software,
   Restart the system if prompted.
 
 
Now download and install this

If  after the installation you were able to see a shortcut icon on your desktop,
    try navigating Crogram Files or Program Files x86 
            now look for Lenovo Folder and It shouldbe located there.
 
Hope this helps

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

A:Lenovo b590 fan error

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

A:Lenovo B590 won't turn on

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,

I have a B590 that came with Windows 7 Pro. I have been trying to get it to boot from USB and nothing seems to work.
I have the settings in the Bios at,
Under Boot Tab
Change Boot mode to Legacy
USB Boot should be enabled
Under Security
Secure Boot is disabled
and I set USB at first boot device.

As soon as I save and exit from Bios, it boots Windows.
I reboot and use F12 and click USB and it boots to Windows.
I have tried a Data Traveler and a Patriot Slate.
I have made them bootable in diskpart and tried FAT and FAT32.

Does anyone have any knowledge about this? I asked this in Lenovo forum, but I figure you guys are smarter.

A:Lenovo B590 wont boot from usb

Hello philetus now this begs the question what is on that USB stick? If it some form of Windows 7 media I am wondering how you managed to get it on a stick and also have you updated the USB drivers.

I am also concerned that you have been into the BIOS and changed it around like that not that I am any great expert on what should be changed, but I do know I had to change a few of the EUFI settings on my Asus ROG to get it to boot 7 which included changing the BIOS to the latest version before I could install 7 drivers.
This is the complete list for 7 64bit and the USB is second from bottom Laptops and netbooks :: Lenovo B Series laptops :: Lenovo B590 Notebook - Lenovo Support (US) -

The water has shorted out the charging system on the motherboard. For future reference, if you spill any liquid on a laptop, open it up fully, and turn it over upside down on a towel and bounce it gently for a few times. Leave it there for 24 hours Your laptop is most likely toast...

My Windows 10 Anniversary version broke down on my laptop Lenovo B590 some days ago.After trying several solutions in UEFI I changed the BIOS to load first from DVD/USB and after that I can't do anything - only first standard Lenovo screen shows up and then blank screen - tap Enter - no reaction. Using F2, F12, F9/Fn and/or Delete/Esc buttons don't help and nothing else. Esc gives "Entering Diagnostich Splash Screen" and then blank screen. Conclusion, impossible to get into UEFI any more.I then created a bootable USB with ISO image using Media Creation tool from my wife's/this laptop. Then trying to use the (restricted) repair function from USB without success - then tried to make a clean install but got error message saying that the partition on laptop was GPT version partition and the iso image don't fit to this.Then downloaded the ISO file directly using Media Creation tool and then used Rufus 2.10 to create a GPT partion for UEFI - but the Lenovo laptop would not react on the USB tool at all - meaning blank screen only.(Trying to create  the MBR partition version with Rufus on USB gave the same result as with the USB from Media Creation tool with the message that the partition on my Lenovo was GPT and therefore the MBR could not be used!)I have now talked to Microsoft support who could not help but referred to this community for help - so ....help, please?

For a Lenovo B590, Model number 59410449, which has the i5 processor, what is the maximum amount of memory that is supported?
 
Mine shipped with 6 GB.  I'm worried that if the max is 8GB, I will have to buy two 4GB memory sticks.  
 
Does anyone know what the maximum for this model number is?  Am hoping it is 16 GB!

A:B590 - Memory for Lenovo Model 59410449

Hi AC2000 ,
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
Based on the product specification for this model , memory :
8GB max7 / PC3-12800 1600MHz DDR3, non-parity, two 204-pin SO-DIMM sockets; * System automatically clocks down for processors with 1333MHz memory controller 
 
This is the recommended Max memory supported for your model eventhou some processors can handle more (example : 15- 4310U handling 16 GB) since certain consideration are maintained by the systemboard and BIOS for full functionality and avoid non essential upgrades for users. 
 
Your 6 GB ram probably have 2GB and 4 GB (PC3-12800 1600MHz DDR3) at the moment so you can simply match the a similar 4GB to max it to 8GB and be able to use dual channel synch for faster communication and transfer. 
 
Hope this helped answer your query. 
Update us what works best for you.

I've just bought this laptop, and it came with windows 8 preinstalled, and I'm trying to install Windows 7 on it.

I have a bootable usb, which I've used many times to install Windows on my other laptops, but the B590 just wont do it. I feel like I've tried everything. I changed the boot priority order in BIOS with USB HDD as number 1 but it still just boots into windows 8.

I've tried removing everything but USB devices from the boot order, and now I get this boot menu:
http://i.imgur.com/1iV2iaW.jpg

Which is exactly what I want to boot from, but when I press enter to boot from the USB device, nothing happens. It's incredibly frustrating.

The USB device IS bootable with a primary partition. I've used these steps to make it bootable in DISKPART:
http://social.technet.microsoft.com...how-to-deploy-windows-7-from-a-usb-drive.aspx

After having no luck on the B590, I tried booting on the USB on a different computer, and it works perfectly well. Starts installing windows 7. So it seems like the problem is not with my usb device.

I even tried restoring the USB drive and using Lenovo Bootable Generator application to make the usb bootable, with the same result.

Can anyone help?

A:Lenovo Essential B590 MBX29IV-Can this run MKV 1080p files?

Based simply on the specs you have listed, it should be fine for 720p but may not do 1080p as the screen resolution may not go high enough.

You have listed the resolution as 1366x768 which should be fine for 720p (1280x720) but 1080p (1920x1080) may be too high for it.

hi nonesofar13,
 
Welcome to the Forums.
 
The B590 (6274) does support an SSD and you can opt to get a 2.5" or an mSATA form factor.
 
- Sample items
- Sample items
 
Since you already have a HDD, you can try to get an mSATA SSD and make it as your boot drive and just make the HDD a storage drive (i.e., For picture, movies, etc.).
 
 - Sample image
 
Alternatively, you can just replace the HDD with a 2.5" SSD and optionally get an caddy or a SATA enclosure to convert the HDD as an external drive.
 
You can refer to this video as a reference:

Hello! I just bought a Levono gaming Laptop. I'm now like 15h more trying to solve this and I simply can't found the answer. My problem is: the WiFi connection is perfect when 2 meters far from the router. But from my badroom, which is 10 meters maximum in a clean straight line without walls, it not work. It can reach the router and open a single internet page in like, 1 minute, if it open. But I just need to come close to the router to it work perfectly. We have more 4 laptops in the house and 4 smartphones. All of them work even outside of the house, double or even triple the distance of my room. But this laptop not. This is my configs:Lenovo Y50-70NVIDIA GeForce 960mi7-4720HQ8GB Ram Win 10Realtek RTL8188EU Wireless LAN 802.11n USB 2.0 Network AdapterIt happen with or without the power cabe on. I already tried in the Advanced tab on Realtek driver:Every combination changing the Brandwidth (20MHz only and 20-40MHz), the Wireless Mode (IEEE 802.11b - 802.11b/g - 802.11b/g/n), the WiFi Config (Performance - WiFi). Also the Power Management, which it's not checked the box to turn off to save power. I already have installed the latest Intel PROSet, for Win10 (Wireless_18.40.0_PROSet64_Win10)The Power Options is setted everything to the same as if it's plugged.Also tried the "ScanWhenAssociated". I really don't know anymore what to do. Please, someone can help me? Thanks!

Hi Stef,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Forums.
 
I would say, it's a driver problem. I have recognized a similar behaviour with an Atheros card/driver. I was able to solve it uninstalling the driver. Also you could try a system restore to when it worked fine.

Also refer to this link
 
I hope the above information helps.

Hello everyone! I ama new user and i am coming up with this post as I couldn`t find any kind of solution for my problem.Recently I decided to do a reinstallation of my operating system, which also previously was Windows 7 Ultimate (x64). The installation went as usual, and after finishing it I went on to install all the latest drivers from the Lenovo site, for my product. When getting close to installing almost all the drivers i`ve needed, i stumbled upon a new version of the BIOS amnd the drivers and sfotware recommended for my laptop, by the producer. So i proceeded to install the upgrade, restarted the computer when it prompted me to do so, but after the so-called restart the laptop did not boot up as usual. At first it was telling me to not do anything as the BIOS is being flashed and then it was telling me something about some sort of image processing, things that i did not understand at the time (i have never encountered anything like that). After that my screen turned black. I have not done anything for a few couple of minutes as i thought it was supposed to be like that, but then i just force shut it down and unplugged the AC adapter. When trying to boot it all up again, the only thing i got was a black screen and nothing else.After doing a little bit of research it appears that, somehowm i`ve managed to corrupt the bios on my laptop or something, and nothing else would work at this point. I tried to remove the BIOS battery and the ram and then put them all back, trye... Read more

For two weeks now I m experiencing a wifi problem on my Z500. Everytime the wifi works fine for two or three days, and then at a random moment all my connections disappear, and the router to which I am connected is just 1 bar strong (Router is in my room). As I delete the driver from the Qualcomm adapter in Device Manager and a new driver on the Lenovo website download it works fine again for a couple of days. At least 15 connections are available. Again I can use the wifi for two or three days and then the problem occurs again. Unfortunately I can t fix it anymore by downloading just a new driver. I tried dozen drivers. The one from Lenovo does not work, the one from Qualcomm does not work. Everytime the wifi works for a day or two, and then something happens and all my connections disappear, and the router in my room is just 1 bar strong. I ve got this laptop three years now, and never had any problem with the wifi. Two weeks ago I did a lot of Windows Updates and then the problem started. System recovery does not work on my laptop either (In safe mode without virusscanner), so that can t fix the problem as well.. Technical Details: - Lenovo IdeaPad Z500 - Windows 8.1 (64 bit) - Wifi Adapter: Qualcomm Atheros AR9485WB-EG I hope you guys can help me..

Last night I installed 8gb of RAM into my Y550. The computer showed 8gb of RAM but my WiFi also stopped working. I took out one stick to set it back to 4gb of RAM and my WiFi started working again. Does this happen for anyone else? I need a solution

A:Lenovo Y550 problem with WiFi and 8GB of Ram

So I tested each individual memory bank and noticed the following: If I have 4gb only in the lower bank my wifi works. If I move the 4gb to the upper bank my wifi stops. I think when I get home I will try seeing if I can plug in a 2gb module in the upper bank with a 4g module in the lower bank and see if my WiFi will still work or not. I really really hate this.

Hi  I bought a Lenovo G500 around a month ago (Windows 8.1, Intel Core i7 2.20 GHz, 8 GB RAM, 1 TB Disk, Broadcom 802.11n Network Adapter).  I have a problem related to wifi connectivity. When i'm at home, no problems with networking. But when i'm at the college, where network is public and realized with a proxy, my lenovo sees the network, but can't connect to internet because the network is "unidentified" and i have a "limited access". My other PC and my HTC One continue to work fine with the routers and access points placed in the college. I tried everything: reinstall wireless drivers, reset winsocks and ip, disable Windows and Comodo firewalls, disable the energy options of the network adapter... but nothing seems to change, and every time i have the same problem: nothing fixes the issue. If anyone has any suggestions I would be very grateful! Thanks

did you download the wifi drivers from lenovo?

I found a couple of postings in other forums where they said resetting the bios to default will enable your wifi.
