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.)

Hi everyone !So I have my lenovo y580 for 1 year now, and I've never seen this issue before...When I insert a jack (speakers, headphones...) my computer randomly crash ! With a beautifull windows blue screen.So I try on Windows 7 or Windows 8 or Windows 8.1, the same thing happened. I tried to install a different realtek audio driver (I've tried the one on the lenovo support for 8.1, and the last r2.73 from realtek)., but it's the same. I have no idea how to stop this ! :/

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. I was hoping to get some clarity with this issue, thank you.

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.

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. Any tips are appreciated.

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.

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.

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.

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 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'm afraid my data is lost to me, which isn't a terrible loss, but am I correct in assuming... Read more

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?

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!

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 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

What is Lenovo IdeaPad y 580 keyboard key type is it ic12 or ic20 or ic47
 
 
Mod's Edit: Additional information added to Subject line for clarity of issue.

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.

Hi,

I need some help with bsods on Windows 8.1 OS. I'm not sure but probably there is my fault that this happens. I have Lenovo Y580 and a few months ago I updated my bios to version 5DCN40WW(v2.07), i downloaded it from Lenovo support website (in this time i got windows 7), then i decide to run Windows 8, but this bios was purposed for Windows 7 and now i cant find 'actualization' to my old bios wich was purposeed to Windows 8, I'm looking for version 5DCN89WW of bios to this Lenovo. Now I have 2-3 bsods a day, even after format, I've updated my drivers using SlimDrivers and downloaded actual drivers from Intel website,on the Intel website I had an information that product has been detected as Kontroler Qualcomm Atheros AR8161 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Controller (NDIS 6.30) but this device is unknown or unsupported (current driver:2.1.0.16) and same thing with Audio Driver for Intel Desktop Board, product detected: Sound Bluetooth (current driver: 12.0.0.2951).

I did memtest86:

A:random BSODs lenovo y580 win 8.1

Sorry for the delay in responding. There just aren't that many people who do BSOD analysis, so at times we get a bit overwhelmed!

AFAIK, you have the latest BIOS for your system.
Here's a link to it: BIOS Update for Microsoft Windows 7 (32-bit, 64-bit) - IdeaPad Y480, Y580

Out of 17 memory dumps there were 7 different BSOD error codes. The differing error codes are usually symptomatic of a lower level problem within the system. They are usually caused by one of these things:
- borked (broken) hardware (several different procedures used to isolate the problem device)
- BIOS issues (check for updates at the motherboard manufacturer's website)
- overclocking/overheating - You'll know if you're overclocking or not. If uncertain we can suggest things to check.
- compatibility issues (3rd party hardware/drivers)
- low-level driver problems
- or even malware (scanned for when we ask for hardware diagnostics from Initial Hardware Diagnostics or Hardware Diagnostics ).

You can get a head start on the hardware diagnostics if you'd like - they are located here: Hardware Diagnostics

Daemon Tools (and Alcohol % software) are known to cause BSOD's on some Windows systems (mostly due to the sptd.sys driver, although I have seen dtsoftbus01.sys blamed on several occasions).





Please un-install the program, then use the following free tool to ensure that the troublesome sptd.sys driver is removed from your system (pick the 32 or 64 bit system depending on your sys... Read more

I've checked bios settings, turned on. I've installed and reinstalled the driver from 2 sources. I've enabled and disabled the adapter. I've restarted my laptop. This happened after I tried installing Windows 8.1 pro 64 bit. All other drivers are installed (Intel,Nvidia etc.)Ethernet works, but the WIfI button is greyed out.

I recently purchased a Y580 used. It had 3 USB ports not working (USB 3.0 I'm assuming) and the screen had stopped coming on or even powering up, but an external monitor would work on it. When I first turned it on, the Lenovo logo came up for a second on the screen, then it went off. This was a coldstart. First I replaced the screen, which I should've known wasn't the problem since it came up once. No improvement.Second, I replaced the monitor cable, which, again, I should've known wasn't the problem since it came up once. That made it worse. Now, when I turn on the machine, the screen has no power for about 20 or 30 seconds. Then it powers on and very slowly turns to full white. It's like the screen is slowly activating all of the pixels till they're all on, all white. I did this twice but decided to turn it off for good for fear I'd damage the screen. Oh, one more thing. When I opened it up, I found that someone had been in the laptop already and the right monitor hinge was broken. The external screw going into that area wouldn't come out (just spun) and internally it was missing a screw from the hinge to the motherboard. So when I opened pulled the top off, the hinge mount finished braking and came all the way up and off the mounting section. There's a black wire that goes over there, but it doesn't connect to the monitor in any way that I can see. I wondered if it were some kind of ground, and when it broke fully, it caused a problem. Any ideas what mi... Read more

Greetings! While I do understand that on Y580 there is no hardware button available for the thermal management software, I do not understand why this software is not included in the drivers. To use it, should I install the energy management drivers for another Y model? Is that recommended at all, or are there risks? Please advise on how I can enable thermal management safely for my IdeaPad Y580. If that cannot be done, please give instructions on setting up SpeedFan or some other fan control software. Thank you. Best regards,S

A:Thermal management on IdeaPad Y580

Yes you need to install energy management for controling fan speed.Dowoad from belowhttp://download.lenovo.com/consumer/mobiles/cagt24ww.exeThere are no risks.

Hello, I need a new battery for My Y580, after a long and frustrating search online it seems that nobody sells the original 6700 mah battery. So I went looking for alternative soloutions and I found this ThinkPad Battery 75+ (6 Cell) it is visually and size wise identical to mine. Now the question is: will it work with my Y580 as in the long list below the description, mine (Model no 20132) is not listed compatible. Thank you

Hello, Recently I noticed that some keys on my keyboard stopped working. First of all I found that ESC key does not work. Then I did an online test (http://www.keyboardtester.com/) and found that following keys does not work : esc, f4, f5, f6, f7, alt (left to the space). After some time esc key started to work for a few minutes but then it stopped once again. Esc key also didn't work in the BIOS. Looks like a hardware failure, but is it possible that only some keys stopped to work? I would be very grateful for any advice. Thanks

Ok so here is the deal, 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 and like the dumb stupid person I am 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 PriorityInternal HDD: SAMSUNG MZMPC064HBDR-000L1SATA HDD: ST1000LM024 HN-M101MBBSATA ODD: Optiarc BD ROM BC-5550HNetwork 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 following System Recovery Options screen showed me no OS existing. So I powered down and used One Key Recovery which told me when I said to restore to factory conditions that the partition layout has changed. Finally I used a bootable Partition Wizard and that showed me this: ? To my layman's eyes it seems like the SSD and HDD that are normally combined by a Lenovo software Raid are now separate?

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
