B590 Laptop from 8.1 to 10 upgrade issues

Q: B590 Laptop from 8.1 to 10 upgrade issues

A number of laptops are having issues upgrading from 8.1 to 10. The laptops are ALL the same Lenovo B590 laptops model 6274.A few of them have upgraded to 10 without issues, however 3 of the laptops are not upgrading due to the following..."display not being compatible". The display drivers are Intel ( R ) HD Graphics 4000.I am doing further research, but any ideas as to why this is happening?Thanks.

Hello, I have a Lenovo B590 with the Intel Celeron 1005M (1,9 GHz) CPU. I was wondering if it's possible to upgrade the CPU on this laptop? And what options I have. I understand some Pentiums can be used? So I assume the CPU is not soldered on? The laptop also has Intel HD graphics, is this a sepperate chip soldered onto the motherboard. Or is this built into the CPU? In short, will upgrading the CPU leave me with a "better" version of Intel HD graphics?

Hello all. I have a problem with 7 laptops in my firm. All are Lenovo B590, and all fail to upgrade to Windows 10. They run the setup till 40% overall, 23% instaling drivers and features. All fail at exactly the same progress. Tryed doing from Media creation tool, tryed flashing bios to newest version. Tryed removing all external devices and even disabling some of them in Device Manager. I think that my B590's are not on the supported list for Win 10 but still hoped something could be done to get the free upgrade. Tnx in advance for your help and good advice. Cheers

I have been having issues with the screen on a B590 Laptop for while, where it would get strange visuals, like every otherline would be washed out, or it would have horizontal bars.  And it would need something pressed against the bottom right of the screen to look normal.  The issues happen during the bootup screen before windows as well.When its not supported just rightWhen a pen is inserted on the right part of the hingeAfter removing the pen while onWhile ordering a replacement panel for screen I was advised that the cable might be the faulty part and that a panel would likely do nothing, seeing as when the panel was removed from the bezel with the ribbon cable in a slack position it worked fine.  If necessary is the display cable/ribbon connector for this laptop, B590 with a 1366x768 display and model 20208, available?

Hello,My B590 laptop is my writing computer, and the lid sensor has been going bad for some time. The screen will randomly turn itself off then back on--sometimes extremely often--and it's gotten to the point that I can't really use it. So, my question is, how do I just permanently disable the lid sensor? It's obviously a magnetic switch, but I'm not sure if simply removing the sensor will do, as I don't know if its default is a closed circuit and simply removing it will make the laptop interpret that as the lid constantly being closed. I'm a fairly advanced user with a lot of experience with soldering and rewiring circuits as well as working on circuit boards, so if the solution involves something a little more advanced, I'm definitely up for it. I'm also willing and able to replace the sensor itself, rather than just disabling it, if the sensor is easily ordered and reasonably priced. Also, please read the background below before attempting to help me troubleshoot.Thanks!Jack MurphyBackground: The issue is definitely that the computer thinks the lid is being closed. If my power settings say to put the computer in sleep mode when the lid is closed, the moment the glitch happens, it will go into sleep mode. It's not a software issue, as I did a factory reset/reinstall, and the problem persisted. I took apart the laptop, reseated all the connections, gently pulled and moved the wires to test for shorts but found none. I also used a strong magnet on the sensor to attempt t... Read more

I am need of some big assistance, otherwise I am rolling back to Windows 7.  I have recently reloaded and upgraded my system from Windows 7 to Windows 10 via free upgrade.  There were some reasons why I was hesitant on upgrading and now I remember why.  Every time I open up windows or file explorer, it abruptly closes out in with 30 seconds.  Same thing happens with when I click on the Windows starts button. I noticed that the home screen flickers 3 to 5 minutes as well.  I have loaded a few applications since then, but this was happening beforehand.  Has anyone run into this before, and is there anyway to fix this before I decided to rollback to Windows 7?  This has been very frustrating since I am trying to transfer files to and from my laptop.

Hi there, Hope you can help here. Firstly details of the laptop below SInce i have upgraded to to Windows 10 i am expereincing a few issues. 1. The laptop has slowed down considerably. Takes a good minute or so to boot up from switching on. Seems to be running in the background quite a lot, without any instructions from me to do anything.2. The mouse is has a 2/3 second delay before actually moving the cursor. Very frustrating.3. The red light on the mouse pad is on constantly. When i double tap it to turn it off, the mouse does not work. It appears the functions have been reversed - normally the red light signified the mousepad is turned off. Any help with any of the above would be warmly received. Best regards Gav

A:Windows 10 upgrade. Laptop slow and mousepad issues

Windows 10 updates run in the background automatically and cannot be stopped. The updates might be running in background slowing down the computer. I would suggest you check the windows updates and let it update all updates and then check the performance.If the memory usage is high, there could be lag in mouse responce. Check and stop unwanted programs from running from startup.Once upgraded to Win 10, there could be few driver issues. Win 10 might be using generic drivers, hence download the drivers from hp.com and update the touchpad drivers.: http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/bph07165 If the above fails, i would suggest you run recovery and get the computer to factory condition and then upgrade to Win 10.

So, Windows 10 has successfully installed itself on most of our home computers and laptops with the exception of my ASUS K52JT laptop. I had similar issues when it was running Windows 8 and 8.1, but it was fixable under those operating systems.

The problem is with the Elan touchpad. Apparently Elan touchpads are not compatible with any operating systems above Windows 7 on ASUS computers. ASUS fixed this problem by creating a program called ASUS Smart Gesture, which gives you back control of whether you'd like tapping and gestures turned on or off.

The previous versions of ASUS Smart Gesture are not compatible with Windows 10 however because there are no Windows 8 style charms to pop out depending on how you've programmed it.

A Windows 10 version of ASUS Smart Gesture has been released but it won't install. Instead it gets almost done with the installation, then pops up an error that states: "There is a problem with this Windows Installer package. A program run as part of the setup did not finish as expected. Contact your support personnel or package vendor." The installation then uninstalls itself and an Installation Incomplete window pops up that says "The installer was interrupted before ASUS Smart Gesture could be installed. You need to restart the installer and try again." Restarting the installer does not fix the problem.

At the time of this writing there are two versions of the program available. SmartGesture_WIN10_64_VER405 and S... Read more

Hello,
I recently purchased a Dell Precision M90 laptop, it is in great condition for second hand.  I love this line of laptops, they are very strong and metal.  I needed a robust system to load visualstudio and SQL server on, and run applications of that magnitude.  I bought 2 new Ram modules, 2gb each for it, it came with 2gb total, 2 1gb modules, I want to total it to 4gb, I read the specs and got PC-5300 667mhz, but when I turned the machine on, the three lights by the bluetooth light just kept blinking, it would not boot.  I put the original modules in and the machine works just fine.  So, I decided to buy the brand that it came with.  It came with samsung.  So I looked on ebay and got the 2gb equivalent to  the 1gb it came with, I got the : Samsung module: M470T5663QZ3-CE6: PC-5300S 667mhz.  My question is, is this the right Ram modules that will work on the Dell Precision M90 machine, if not please tell me which 2gb modules I need to purchase.  Thank you.

I am trying to prep a computer to give to a friend. Last night, I reformatted it using the recovery discs that came with it. It is a Tosh Satellite A105.

Today, I have been finding and installing updates to the system, trying to prepare it for an upgrade to win7, which is no easy task since I have had to go out and find some of the drivers and service pack 3.

I am using the Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor, and need input on which of these 11 issues really are issues, and which I can skip and just install new once I upgrade.

Adobe issues -- I uninstalled it.

Toshiba Blue Tooth Stack for xp version 4.0 -- I downloaded and installed version 7.0, but have not uninstalled 4.0. It doesn't make sense to my feeble brain why I would have to uninstall 4.0 if I installed 7.0 unless it is because I downloaded the 7.0 instead of upgrading to it?

Here is a list of the rest:
MS .NET Framework 1.1 --I downloaded and installed a later version, so which version do I need to find?

Toshiba ConFigFree -- No clue what this is.

Intel ProSet/Wireless software -- ZeroCfgSvc Application -- No clue

Toshiba Utilities -- I have updated everything available from ms, so is this another one that I have to go find, and if so, what version?

To be uninstalled unless someone suggests otherwise:
Messenger
Realplayer
Realtek HD audio driver
Sonic Record now
Yahoo music engine

Thanks a bunch in advance for any help!

A:XP to windows 7 upgrade incompatibility issues caught by Upgrade Advis

1st, you can't upgrade from XP to Windows 7, you have to do a Clean Install which means boot the DVD and format the drive, so nothing you do to XP will have any effect.

Having said that, you can cheat

See here: Upgrade Install - XP to Windows 7

My recommendation would be to do an image backup of the XP system then do a Clean Install (with format), apply all updates then start restoring your data from the backup. All software will have to be reinstalled, it can't be copied from the backup to Win 7.

Good tutorials here:

Ever since I upgraded my laptop to Windows 10, this SoftThinks Agent Service is taxing my HDD to 100% slowing things down.
This is related to Dell Backup and Recovery software. I can kill this service and that's that but every-time I start up, this happens.
As for sleep mode, I will come back to my laptop and raise the lid, hit the keys, move the mouse, nothing. I hit the power button and nothing. So I hold the power button and then hit it to boot up, so clearly there are issues in relation to sleep mode and something shutting it off. (others have posted the same)
I installed all newest Intel drivers on your site and I read 1 user stated to uninstall Intel Rapid Storage, which I did. Intel Management Engine remains as I am still trying to troubleshoot. Are you testing all these new drivers you are putting out for download? Do I need to go back to Win8.1, your site said my laptop could be upgraded.
Please advise and "do the needful".

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

It'll be plugged in and not be charging until I spin the connection within it until it hits a certain point then it will charge a bit but if it moves at all it will cease charging.

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,

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 DIS W/FAN  90201913
 
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

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

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.

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

Hello, I recently bought this Lenovo B590. I tried updating all relevant drivers. (BIOS, Graphics)I restored the laptop to factory settings once. But still the HDMI output is not recognized. My videocard is a Intel HD Graphics 4000. When I try to connect through the settings console I get 2 options: My laptop screen, and through the Intel HD Graphics, but the options are:Try to connect to VGATry to connect to Laptop ScreenTry to connect to VGA(My windows is Dutch, so it in English it may be called differently)Anyway, VGA is an option twice, maybe that has something to do with it. Does anyone know what I can do about this? I tried just about everything I can come up with, and I have been looking around the internet for some days now.  I'm absolutely sure that my HDMI cable is not broken.

My Lenovo B590 was working fine yesterday, today suddenly I can't make it boot up. I have recorded a video that demonstrates the behaviour of the Laptop on Power On:https://youtu.be/T9IcxsIgRcE It remains in an endless loop of powering up for a sec, making some click-sound and turning off immediately. Longpress power button ends the loop. AC cable is connected, battery is inserted. Things I tried that didn't solve the issue:Power On only with AC cable (normally and with 20 sec long Power press)Power On only with battery (normally and with 20 sec long Power press)Removing both RAM and trying it with one each in each of both RAM slotsProbably an issue with the motherboard? Anything else I could try?

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 want to add RAM to my B590.'System' tells me that I have 4GB installed. I found this in one of the forums: I?m glad to inform you that the RAM can be upgradable up to 8GB (4GB x 2) and with the specification DDR3 PC3-12800 (204-pin SODIMM) will be compatible with your B590 Laptop. ...which is helpful, but unfortunatley doesn't tell me whether I may have 1 x 4GB installed or 2 x 2GB - is both possible?if so, how can I tell what I got? (I'm not familiar with the hardware, so I'm not comfortable simply opening the thing up and looking around, at least not without instructions) thanks a caboodle ! :-) helm
