Q: Lenovo B560 Linux - Ubuntu Drivers Update. CPU ove...

I just Install Ubuntu 16.04 On my B560 after a total crash upgrading to W10. Fantastic OS, superfast load and everything working smooth but a single small issue. It seems the CPU gets overheated. Not sure if cause the 4.4 version of the new Kernel or any other reason as power management in the mother board. I cant find Direct dowloads to Linux drivers. Have tried some searchs on the knowledge base but didnt found anything really helpfull. Any idea?, any links around? any information about where to find them.I know by the Ubuntu site that they partner with Lenovo and all Lenovo's shipping in India comes with Ubuntu Preinstalled instead of Windows ( a much better option i will say ). Any helps , post found, links etc will be much appreciated.

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.)

Dear All - I have an HP X2 Detachable Laptop - P010NR. Its (sadly) pre-loaded with Windows 10 64bit, with an inbuild memory of 32GB. Windows and their updates have already eaten 25GB of laptop space and gave me reason enough to switchover OS itself. Now, I have tried - Ubuntu (16.04), Ubuntu Mate (17.10), ElementaryOS, Remix OS (Android), Chrome OS & Linux Mint. They all can be installed on this Laptop but, none of them has working sound/audio. I do not use camera, bluetooth etc. on laptop so they do not hold any relevance. But I have to have working audio.  It will be a great help if someone kindly suggest workaroud for installing audio drivers for any of the above OS OR an alternate OS with working audio over this PC. I don't care about warranty etc. as its an overseas purchase, not covered in any of the way in my Country. Kindly also suggest if an USB external sound card can do the trick as they are readily and cheaply available. Thanks for reading the issue.

Hi, I have a Lenovo B560 laptop, and I've had it for almost 2 years now. I remember I didn't have wireless when I baught it, it just didn't detect any wireless ever, and then after months, it just did. I don't know how it happened, but for a while I could detect wireless. Now I formated my hard drive and reinstalled windows (7 , 64-bit)  ..and I again don't have any wireless connection, no matter where I go. Can you please help me figure this out? Thanks a lot!

A:Lenovo B560 - No wireless!!

Hi tezebe,
Welcome to Lenovo community Forums!
Since you just did a reformat you might need to check the Device driver for the Wireless adapter.
You can check under device manager, try opening network adapter ans check if you will see intel, broadcom or atheros that says wireless.
like this:
If there are none then you should download one from here. try checking the drivers or you can call Technical support about what wireless came with your computer by providing the computer serial number.
After installation, Check your wifi switch if it is On by pressing FN+F5 on your Keyboard to switch the wifi on/off.
Then try reconnecting..
Please let me know what happened.....
Hope this helps,

Hello everyone! I have Ubuntu 18.04 installed on my Lenovo Ideapad 320 15-ABR as a single system. Since I made the change from Windows 10,  when i return to open the computer after "close" it and suspend it for a few minutes or hours, I find the screen completely stuck and glitched in colors without anything i can do but turn off and then on again the computer whit the power button. I've read in Ubuntu forums that could be because the drivers I'm using for the graphics card are generic and "free" of linux. The problem is that I can not install proprietary drivers (AMD Radeon) because the amd drivers website doesnt allow these be downloaded individually, but ask to "identify" your hardware using an app for windows that you are asked to download. The problem is that this app can not be installed or run on Linux systems. Any idea how to find the correct drivers for my equipment, available for download? And some idea of ??how to install them correctly in Ubuntu? Thanks in advice

Hello, I have a lenovo B560 laptop. It is fairly new. The display is wacky. You cannot see the display and you can drag the mouse aaaaaaaaaalllllll the way down or to the left or right. It says I have the latese Generic PNP momitor nad the latest Intel Graphics. This happened before and I downloaded the monitor driver and it worked. I turned on the laptop a month or so later (it is a work laptop) and it is the same. I have done 2 full reinstalls and it installs the same way, with the display way off. All I see in the device manager is Gerneric pNp monitor and Thinkpad display 1400 something. I uninstalled both, restarted, reinstalled and it is the same. What is the problem and why can I not install NVIDIA drivers? Why is the set up I used before that worked, not work now. The one that fixed the issue a few months ago was IN2VDO39WW5.

Just got my Lenovo B560 laptop around April 2011 just for school purposes and it just started crashing on me.

Scenerio - While using it, it will randomly start making a ticking/clicking noise. This is then followed by the blue screen crash dump error. Give it a minute or so and it will then go black (slight lit screen) then a new error message pops up basically saying no OS found. Then I power down, let it boot up again and choose to start Windows normally. It takes a long time but it will boot up and then I can use it again until I hear the ticking/clicking sound and the cycle continues.

Windows 7 Home Premium
2.13GHz Intel Pentium P6200

I'm thinking the hard drive is going bad but wanted input. I'd hate to think I broke it so soon.

Hi Lenovo Community! I'm having some trouble with my Lenovo B560 notebook after upgrading from Windows 7 to Win 10. The problem's with the touchpad and scroll. With the new touchpad driver (Elan smart pad driver dated 2015), the touchpad isn't working properly, it hesitates and stops in the middle of the motion. With an older driver (2010), the touchpad works just fine, but the scroll goes only down. When I scroll down, it goes down normally, but when I scroll up, it also goes down, only faster. I couldn't find any solution to this on the internet although I have seen the same exact problem mentioned regarding Windows 8 on the Microsoft forums, unfortunately with no solution. Can anyone help with this problem? I would very much appreciate it! Thank you,Domat

A:Lenovo B560 notebook Scroll problem with Windows 1...

The touchpad issue has been the bane of Windows 10 since its roll out.   The problem seems to center around Windows 10 wanting to use the Microsoft driver no matter what is installed by the end user.  It also has something to do with "touchscreen" and "guesture control" that interferes or over rides touchpad operation, especially with "scrol pads" that have sensing areas on the edges of the touchpad for scrol up/down options.
The only soulution seems to be using the built in windows driver and two finger guestures for up and down scrolling.  Microsoft seems to be dead set against changing this for some reason.

Dear Lenovo Tech Support, Windows 10 Is the most annoying OS ever. It does havoc in my P40 Yoga, It automatically installs drivers that does not work well with the P40. Whenever I opened Firefox and tried to connect to a website or tried to connect to a different Wifi network, the screen would turn black for a couple of seconds and the mouse cursor would center it self in the screen, like some sort of a reset. I installed the original WiFi driver from Lenovo website and magically the problem stopped. It is unreasonable and even time consuming that I have to write this message and needed to reinstall drivers from Lenovo website because of this new idiotic OS.I demand, that you write a script and add an option to the Lenovo settings app that will prevent windows 10 from automatically updating it's drivers and replacing them with universal ones. Also I had an Impression that Lenovo is a professional company, that make sure their computers work well and error free, without annoying maintenance... well prove me right and kindly if it's not too much to ask, contact Microsoft yourself and make sure they stop auto-updating drivers and replacing them with universal ones. An addition, I would appreciate it, if kindly you will provide all needed drivers for the Linux community for the P40, I'm sick of WINDOWS!!!

Lenovo Releases BIOS Update to Allow Linux Installation on Windows 10 Devices

Back in September, complaints that reached the web (and even got confirmed by a supposed Lenovo official) claimed that installing Linux on a Yoga 900 was impossible because the operating system was blocked as part of a deal between Microsoft and Lenovo.

Both Microsoft and Lenovo denied that such an agreement existed, explaining that installing Linux was actually impossible because Windows 10 was running on a SSD locked in a proprietary RAID mode that could only be read by Redmond?s operating system.

And yet, following all this controversy Lenovo has released a new BIOS update for Yoga 900 that unlocks this proprietary RAID mode and allows the installation of Linux on the device.

?This BIOS creates an AHCI SATA Controller Mode selection to allow for the installation of the Linux operating system. This BIOS is NOT intended for use with machines running a Windows operation system,? the official changelog of the new BIOS version reads.

Drivers should allow Linux installation on any device
Lenovo confirmed from the very beginning that installation of Linux on its devices was possible with the right drivers, but the company didn?t say a single thing about updates that would be provided for the Yoga 900 Signature Edition.

?To improve system performance, Lenovo is leading an industry trend of adopting RAID on the SSDs in certain product configurations. Lenovo does not intentionally block cus... Read more

You don't ever expect Linux to "just work"; it often requires some tweaks but the support community is second to none and I guarantee you can get all the hardware working as long as you have some basic Linux skills or are willing to acquire them.

Hi, I am planning to buy a HP notebook and want to run it as a Win10/Ubuntu dual boot. I would like to buy either the HP Spectre x360 13-4116na or HP ENVY x360 15-w101na.I have seen threads in this and other forums that a dual boot is possible and that there are some problems with the sound, but that there are solutions for these problems. But I have seen threads complaining about problems with graphic cards and especially some people saying that they deliberately chose NOT a QHD screens as if Ubuntu would not be able to deal with this higher resolution. Sounds unlikely to me, but could this pose a problem for Ubuntu with those two models I mentioned? Thanks for helping me to choose the right computer.ToruOkada

Win 7/Win XP/Ubuntu Linux Tri-boot

I have a PC that is currently a dual boot between Windows 7 Ultimate and Ubuntu Linux 8.04 (Hardy Heron). The two operating systems are on separate physical drives. Ubunutu is on the PC?s original 250 gig drive (the primary) and Win 7 is on a 1 TB Seagate internal drive that I added later (the slave).

I already discussed dual booting with Ubuntu and Win 7 on a Linux forum. I installed each OS completely independently of the other. I installed Ubuntu first without the other drive installed. I later disconnected the 250 GB primary drive and installed Windows 7 to the 1 TB drive as if Ubuntu were not even present on the PC. Later I reconnected and edited a file known as menu.lst in Ubuntu?s feature known as ?Grub?. Grub looks at the file and gives me the choice of Windows 7 or Ubuntu when I boot up.

Now it?s a long story, but I need to add Windows XP to my choices. I?m told on the Ubuntu forum that I can temporarily disconnect the Ubuntu drive and set up XP on the 1 TB drive as a dual boot with Bootloader handling the choice between Win 7 and XP. The idea is to get it running right and later reconnect the Ubuntu drive. Grub will give me the choice between Ubuntu and Windows; then if I choose Windows, Bootloader will give me the choice between Win 7 and XP. I could live with that.

So the Ubuntu drive is disconnected. We don?t have to worry about that in this thread. If I have any trouble with Grub, I?ll... Read more

A:Win 7/Win XP/Ubuntu Linux Tri-boot

Tom, I think the answer to your question is on the first sentence of the Tutorial how to load the SATA drivers: "When you install Win XP, setup can not find your Hard Drive."

So, if setup can find your HD, you should be good to go.

One remark: installing XP after Windows 7 is a bit more complicated, you will have to repair Windows 7 boot file to add XP. You have mentioned the tutorial, so you shoudl be good to go. I just highlight it since it can be a stumbling block.

Regarding the floppy disk thing, from what I know it is XP's idiosyncrasy, it doesn't allow drivers to be loaded with USB drives. It is from a time there were no USB drives...
