Hello there, I own a Lenovo G500, a 2013 model, and I just bought a 2 x 4GB 1600 MHz Kingston HyperX DDR3L memory kit.I pulled the old 4 GB memory out and put the new cards in, but both my Windows 7 and the BIOS see only one of them, so the laptop only uses 4 GB of RAM.I tried putting the cards in one by one, the bottom slot works, but when I only use the top slot, the laptop does not boot. It's likely this is the problem, cause even CPU-Z only sees RAM in one of the slots and displays "Single Channel" running. My question would be: is there a possibility this is a software issue? Is there a way to enable dual channel?If not, could this be a motherboard issue? Thank you. Regards,Darren

A:Upgrade to SSD on Lenovo G500 laptop

Hey Greg,

Since the SSD would be the same standard 2.5" size of the HDD in the laptop, you shouldn't have any issues swapping them.

The metal tray that holds the hard drive will have side screws that will work with the SSD as well. Just make sure that the SATA connection lines up before screwing the SSD on the tray though to avoid having to flip it afterwards. LOL

Hi Azadkv,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community!
 
I?m sorry to hear that your G500 Laptop is not booting to Windows and hanging at Lenovo Logo and the issue persists even after performing Flee-Power step. Hence, I suggest to perform BIOS reset and check if the issue persists. Below are the steps to perform BIOS reset:
 

To access BIOS menu turn OFF the Laptop and press the NOVO button located beside power button.
Then to reset the BIOS to its defaults click on ?F9? Key and select YES.
Now click on ?F10? Key to save the changes that are done in BIOS, the computer will automatically restart.

Do post us back if the issue persists.
 
Best Regards

The first thing I look at if a machine hangs at startup is the USB ports.  Physical damage can create shorts which cause these symptoms.  Check for bent pins or a tongue broken off.

I am using Windows 7 , 32 bit. I noticed that on each update of Windows 7 , the sound disappears (and no, its not muted, and no Bluetooth device  ...).The "no sound" can be observed in the following:- No Windows sound when login/logout of windows.- No sound when playing from Internet (Youtube)- When I try to play a file using windows media player, I get the message "windows media player encountered a problem while playing the file". The file is good and played o.k before the update.I am using the latest Conexant driver and all seems to be o.k. In the device manager.To overcome this , I need to reinstall the Conexant driver after each update, which is not acceptable (never had to mess around in any of the previous laptops I had).Any suggestions ?

hi Lior11,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
You can do this to exclude device driver from Windows Updates
 
Open a run box (Windows key + R)
Type in sysdm.cpl   hit enter
Then click on Advanced System Settings

 
You should have a windows with Tabs / Go to Hardware TAB and click on Device Installation settings

 
Now click on "No let me choose what to do"
  Never Install driver software from Windows Update then save changes.
 
Hope this helps
Cheers!

Hello everyone, this is a bit of an emergency for me, I'll sapre you the story and just state that I am a university student and I use my G500 everyday on campus for notes and communication. I bought a Lenovo G500 last year in July and it has been working well for me up until tonight. I have upgraded the hard drive to a Samsung 840 Pro SSD and installed Linux Mint 16, 32-bit. Yes, I had to disable the UEFI boot setting in the BIOS to install linux. So tonight I was using my laptop for some work and then wanted to watch a DVD while in bed. I inserted a DVD but couldn't get the OS to recognize it. No big deal I thought, I'll just restart and see if that fixes the problem. Upon restart I get the Lenovo splash screen...and that's it. The computer jsut hangs up there. Now I've been running this G500 on Linux since I bought it, without any issues. So I doubt it is the linux distribution (which I have kept up to date). Here are the troubleshooting techniques I have tried (and I have used the search function on this forum already, the solutions I found so far do not help/apply to my case). 1.) I powered down the system, removed the battery, unplugged the A/C adapter and held the power button for about 20 seconds to discharge the system. I then plugged the A/C adapter back in WITHOUT re-installing the battery and pressed the power-on button. No change in behavior. 2.)

hi MadMechanic,
 
Welcome to the Forums.
 
Can you try the following:
1. Remove the AC adapter, battery and HDD.
2. Press and hold the power button for 20secs and then reconnect the AC adapter
3. Press OneKey Recovery button and choose BIOS Setup.
 
- Link to picture
 
If this works, try resetting the BIOS to the default settings by pressing F9 (or Fn+F9) then press F10 (or Fn+F10) to save and exit. When finished, try inserting the stock HDD (or the Samsung 840 Pro SSD) and see if it'll boot.
 
If the problem remains, try reseating the RAM (or if you have two memory modules, try using one stick only). If this doesn't work, I'm afraid you may need to contact Lenovo for service.

Hi there. I'm planning to buy a Lenovo G500 laptop, and I simply can't find the correct answer to one small question.

As you might know, laptops of today incorporate many hotkey functions on their F1-F12 keys. And for that particular Lenovo model (and some of its closely-related brethren), I can't figure out what the F8 hotkey does in Windows 7.

It looks like three small squares, and ''F8'' below them. According to the G500 user manual, it is used to ''display all currently active apps''. As apps are only available in Windows 8, does anyone of you know what purpose could it serve in Windows 7?

I posted this already on Lenovo official forums, but not a single soul bothers to answer. There's gotta be someone who uses Windows 7 on Lenovo G500/G505/G510/G700/G710 or any other Lenovo with inverted Fn/function keys. If you're one of them, press F8 (or Fn+F8) and tell me what happens.

Thanks in advance.

I have a G500 Ideapad that will not boot or boot to the bios no matter what I try. It goes directly to a blank screen (back light is on monitor but nothing appears) no matter which button I push to turn it on. The Lenovo screen does not appear. I have removed everything including the hard drive, reseated the ram and the processor and have even unplugged the cmos battery after removing the main battery for days and it still will not go to bios. This happened two other times but I was able to get it to go to bios. I have upgraded from win 8.1 to 10.

I tried the hard reset. Nothing. I even tried to put another hard drive from another computer in but still get that maddening blank screen right after turning on. Trying Fn + F1 or F2 does nothing. I would love if someone has some idea I can try to get to the bios I have not tried.

The Current configuration of my laptop is
LENOVO G500, WINDOW 7 Ultimate 32 Bit
Processor: Intel (R) core (TM) i5-3230M [email protected] GHz 2.60GHz Ram 4 GB
Hi I Want to Install the Window 10 1607 English x64 On my LENOVO LAPTOP G500. Problem is Lenovo till Now, not released the Drivers for WINDOW 10 64 BIT and I have no hope they will release it soon, many customers demanded this for that on LENOVO Community Forum. But they only care about the money and new customers not existing customers. Because of such type of attitude towards customers I will never buy the any LENOVO product in future
Currently for WIFI, Driver Program Qualcomm Atheros Communication is installed . For DOLBY ADVANCED AUDIO V2 Separate Dolby drivers are installed and laptop have SILIENT FAN Feature too. My question: if I install FRESH Window 10 1607 English x64 on my laptop will Window 10 automatically install Required WIFI drivers out of box during installation process ? or Will WIFI not works after installation and will both DOLBY AND SILIENT FAN feature will works after Window 10 installation.
Anybody who have successfully installed the window Window 10 1607 English x64 on LENOVO g500 please share your?s experience .
Thanks

Solved: Re: Lenovo G500 WIndows 10 drivers - Lenovo Community

Lenovo does not make drivers, it is just a reseller. If the hardware is not supported, there is nothing it can do.

That said, everything might work, 8.1 drivers are mostly compatible with 10, so you will not know, until you try.

I'm having a serious problem with my Internet connection - especially wireless drivers. Only in a short distance from the wifi modem I can connect and not remotely as I can in the past. Is there any solution for my problem?

Dear Community, I have a G500 laptop (i5-3230M; 8 GB RAM, 1 TB SSHD, ATI HD8570M). I have multiple issues with that. On 19.04.2016 I was able to use my laptop without problems, after that I closed the lid. After around 1 hour I opened that again but already had the issues. My problems are the followings:- DVD-RAM disappeared from BIOS, however it is working fine (tested in another laptop.) In my laptop it is blinking, ejecting the tray and is rotating after inserting a disk but after a short period it stops blinking and rotating. I have found some topics already here, but there the problem was with the DVD-RAM, that is not the case by me.- SSHD stoped working as well (tested under Win 7 and Ubuntu; By Win 7 the disk recognized, however the partions were not visible and the disk management wanted to initialize the disk fist. By Ubuntu the disk was not visible in Gparted, but in Testdisk, however it said there is no partition on the disk and droped Read error by every cylinders. It seems something is blocking the reading. Testdisk showed me the capacity of the SSHD and the size of the used space as well!) The laptop was clean inside and wasn't hot. What could cause such problems and how can I fix it? Unfortunatly the warranty ended last November. If possible I would require solutions where I can at least access to my data on the SSHD. Thank you in advance!

Hi vasadam , 
 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
Initially best if you turn off the PC and remove  the optical drive , SSHD, and battery while unplugged from the ac adapter. Press down power button for 12 seconds to power drain . Return the battery and plug the adapter . Turn on to access the BIOS and F9 to load defaults F10 save and exit.  Shut down. 
 
Connect back the optical drive and SSHD making sure that the contacts are good and then turn on to check on BIOS for both DVD drive and SSHD .
 
With the optical drive , if the BIOS still failed to detect it , most likely issue would be the contact between the drive and the motherboard . 
 
For the SSHD , don't attempt to continue with Windows recommended fix and cancel it since it may do some changes with your data inside. Run diagnostics and similar hardware test for isolation. 
 
For data recovery best that you get a service center if they would have other tools to back up for you. 
Update us how it goes . 
 
 
Regards

My laptop was plugged into my tv via HDMI. I ran a virus scan, then restarted. During the restart, I unplugged it from the tv. When the laptop booted back up, it displayed the lenovo logo, then the screen went dark. I waited a while, then tried plugging the HDMI cable back in... and windows (10) appeared as normal on the TV, but still not on the laptop screen. I am able to turn the dark screen contrast up and down with F keys, so it's not completely black.

Basically, I can use my laptop when plugged into the tv, but the laptop screen itself is black. How can I get the screen working again?

Thanks,
J

Try pressing the F10 key, you should see more settings on the TV screen where can select which display is used.
If that doesn't work press and hold down the Fn (Function) key before pressing F10.

Typing this on mobile device so have to be succinct.  Upon pressing power button: No backlight on monitor appears (monitor remains black) Fan remains running at normal speed Little lights indicating battery/power status of unit work normally removing/alternating ram has no effect on occasion when the laptop works, the slightest nudge will crash/power off system i know it sounds bad (motherboard damage maybe?) but any thoughts would be appreciated

A:Lenovo G500 fan running, no booting

The nudge & crash symptom is concerning.       Did the laptop get dropped or have anything happen to it that might lead you to believe the motherboard would be damaged, or result i the screen failing?     Do you have the ability to try connecting and external monitor to see if the system is actually booting?Does the position of the screen have any effect?    (I ask because there is a cable between the screen and base that can become damaged overtime, and perhaps could be shorting. Best of luck, Lenovo G400/G500/G405/ G505/G410/G510 Hardware Maintenance Manualhttps://download.lenovo.com/consumer/mobiles_pub/lenovo_g400g500g405g505g410g510_hmm.pdf

A:Booting for the first time in my Lenovo G500

Hi Stathesp,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
I?m sorry to hear that your G500 Laptop is booting to Black screen, I suggest you to change the Boot priority of CD/DVD drive 1st and HDD (Hard Disc Drive) to 2nd, below are the steps to access BIOS:
 

Turn OFF the computer and then click on NOVO button which is located at the left side of the computer.
Then under Boot tab change the CD/DVD as 1st boot and HDD to 2nd device.
Now press ?F10? Key to save the changes, the computer will automatically restart.
Then check inserting the Disc and check the issue.

Do post us back if the issue still persists.
 
Best Regards

Shiva Kumar
