Lenovo Ideapad Z575 Upgrading & Downgrading - Mssing Drivers

Q: Lenovo Ideapad Z575 Upgrading & Downgrading - Mssing Drivers

I have a Lenovo Ideapad Z575 laptop with windows 7 pre installed on it. With the realse of windows 8, I decided to upgrade from windows 7 to windows 8. That was a big mistake; So, I wen't from windows 8 back down to windows 7. I didn't notice this until after I setup my computer but the windows 7 drivers got deleted and they were replaced with nothing. Because this is a Lenovo brand computer, it has a program called onekey recover. So I installed that through a USB becuase the laptop doesn't have a LAN wireless network connection driver on it. And I don't have internet at my house. So anyways, once that was installed, I ran it and it didn't work. Is there anyway I can restore all of my drivers and use the lenovo onekey recovery?

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.)

You will have to download the drivers from Lenovo. Generally, Windows 7 will install many drivers, although it may not install all.

You will have to download all the drivers from Lenovo for the Z525. Start with the video, Sound, Ethernet, Wi-Fi, touchpad, etc.

Once a different OS was installed on the PC, I don't think the Onekey or any recovery partition will work. Only a manual install with a Windows disc and all the drivers.

Yesterday afternoon I purchased a Lenovo IdeaPad Z575 for $499.00 from this link: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834246328

Obviously, it hasn't come in the mail yet. I'm looking to upgrade the RAM in the laptop. It comes with 6gb of RAM, a 4gb stick and a 2gb stick. The problem is, I don't really know what kind of RAM is in the computer. I'm looking to replace the 2gb stick with a second 4gb stick.

The type of RAM the laptop uses is pc3-10600 1333mhz ddr3, non-parity, dual-channel capable, two 204-pin so-dimm socket RAM.

My question is whether or not this RAM is compatible with the laptop: http://www.amazon.com/Samsung-Electronics-Extreme-MV-3T4G3-US/dp/B00591ZYX8

Also, if there is a better option for RAM for this laptop, I'd like to know.

A:Solved: Is this RAM compatible with my Lenovo IdeaPad Z575?

Honestly, I think I may have mental problems. It looks like I answered my own question in this post. That RAM is compatible with my laptop. So I guess I'd just like to know if this RAM is the best option for this particular laptop.

I am having issues with onekey recovery because I am trying to factory reset my laptop. I have used it before without issues, but I believe it may have happened after I tried out Windows 10 but then reverted back to Windows 7. If I try to use OneKey recovery through the program, when I select the option to reformat, it just restarts my computer normally. If I try to use the onekey recovery key on the keyboard, it just turns on my computer normally. Any solutions to this issue?

I have a Lenovo Ideapad z575 with an AMD A-Series APU, and also a discrete video card which I can run in Crossfire if I so choose.

I have been having problems with it randomly restarting without any error in even viewer, no blue screen, nothing. It seems to have begun doing this when I tried upgrading the memory by swapping the 2gb stick for a 4gb (8gb total), and it does not seem to be overheating. It will do it playing youtube videos, gaming, and also just sitting idle in chrome.

I have noticed that according to CPU-Z my memory is currently running with very low timings compared to their specifications, and I don't know why. I have tried switching slots, switching sticks, removing sticks, etc, and it does not change this. I have no option in the BIOS to change memory timings, and am wondering if it has something to to with the integrated video processor on the APU.

Any help would be great!

Also, it should be noted that I don't have the 2gb stick anymore to try putting it back to stock.

A:Ideapad z575 Random Restart

Actually it looks like using Slot #1 allows it to run at the correct timings. Why would Slot #2 force both banks to use the wrong (faster) timings?

And now for some reason it looks like I can add the second slot and have correct timings... how strange. It is still restarting when playing flash video.

I have an IdeaPad Z575. When I used Windows 7 I did not run into any issues with the (Chrome) browser going back a page while I was in the middle of typing. Since the upgrade to Windows 10, this issue occurs quite often.
I do not see the back keys that I have seen on some of the Thinkpads. Any idea what is causing this? I am figuring it is a combination of keys, but I have been unable to figure out which keys and/or touch pad combo is causing it.
I've attached a photo of the keyboard for anyone unfamiliar with the layout. The left and right mouse buttons aren't in the photo but are below the touch pad.

I have seen several posts for units with similar product numbers, but I can't find this exact machine anywhere in reference to upgrading the RAM.  It comes with 4 g of RAM and 1 TB hard drive.  I wanted to add 4 more G of RAM.  Turns out the 4 it has are soldered to the board and I don't seem to be able to find any literature or any place on the unit where I can insert any RAM at all.   It seems the only spot is where it it soldered to the board.  Is it true I cannot upgrade or increase the RAM in this unit??

A:Lenovo Ideapad Y560 upgrading RAM

Hi hyperxd , 
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
Based on the product RAM specification : 
4GB or 8GB std / 8GB max7 ; PC3-up to 1333MHz DDR3, non-parity, dual-channel capable, two 204-pin SO-DIMM sockets 
Recommended RAM upgrade as per hardware manual FRU listing for 4GB (page 85) : 
13 DDRIII 1333 4GB, SAM M471B5273CH0-CH9 DDR3 1333 4GB  Part number : 11011934 13 DDRIII 1333 4GB, HMT351S6AFR8C-H9 N0 ((Rev Orion /2Gb/54nm)) Part number : 1101151313 DDRIII 1333 4GB, ELP EBJ41UF8BAS0-DJ-F DDR3 1066 4GB Part number : 11011867
Do you have the same specification as indicated above?
Would that be the same issue when it is on the lower slot 0 ?
Note: If only one DIMM is used on the computer you are servicing, the card must be installed in SLOT-0 ( a : lower slot), but not in SLOT-1 ( b : upper slot) (page 41).

Hey I just want to know that is my laptop CPU is upgradable? My model is Lenovo Ideapad Y550 and the CPU is Intel core 2 duo T6600 2.2 GHz.
From this link I found that it is upgradable ncompservices reviews: Lenovo Y550 4186 - Processor and Hard Drive upgrade - A potentially very inexpensive gaming laptop.

Main reason for upgrading is that it CPU is bit slow 2.20 GHz so I want to upgrade it. Which mobile processor which you guys suggest that is compatible with my laptop? I really want to upgrade. And also the link which I provided has image corrupted so I can't see the whole tutorial. Anyone please help me.

And yeah one thing that I must told you that my laptop CPU hasn't soldered to the motherboard unlike most of the laptop so I think it is replaceable.

Thanking You,

A:Upgrading Lenovo Ideapad Y550 CPU.

Although many laptop CPU's are not soldered and can (theoretically be replaced by the end user) your BIOS may not be able to handle the upgrade. I would be careful in attempting such an upgrade as you may render your warranty void as well as make your computer nothing more than an expensive paperweight.

Hi, I'm hoping this is the right place, I'm having some problems and I don't know where to turn... I do a lot of work with video, my original computer was too slow so I decided to upgrade the hdd (to 500GB 7200rpm) and add ram. (The hdd works like a dream!)I went through corsair.com and they showed me a list of compatible ram products. I then took the info I learned from their site down to my local computer store and bought the 4GB Kit. (Corsair RAM suggestions for the Lenovo Y510, I bought the highlighted 4GB Kit)After reading and watching a few things on installing ram it seemed simple enough so I went ahead with it and removed the two 1GB sticks out and put the two new 2GB sticks in.When I started up the computer...nothing happened. The lights go on I hear the fan and feel the hdd spinning but nothing on the screen for me to select. I tried waiting 30 seconds before installing the sticks, I tried alternating sticks, putting in one at a time even. I even put the old sticks back in. Still nothing. Sites say press f2 at start-up, still nothing, and they say press f8 to go into safe mode again nothing. A blank screen. My instruction manual tells me that there is no software to download and that BIOS in the POST process should detect the newly installed ram.What's going on?  Did I blow out my screen??? I know I'm way past the warranty...so I'm wondering who I call/ speak with?  Do I send it in to Lenovo to get it fixed?  How much will it cost ...

A:Computer Won't Boot After Upgrading RAM, Lenovo Y510 Ideapad, Windows Vista, 2GB to 4GB RAM

You say the computer experiences the same problem even with the old RAM? If that's the case, the most likely scenario is that you are installing it improperly. You can take your computer to a local computer repair center and ask them to quickly show you how to install RAM. It should be a very quick fix, so don't pay someone to do this. Even a knowledgeable salesperson at a computer store would be able to look at it and fix it. Alternatively, it is possible you damaged both the old RAM and the new RAM (very unlikely, but I suppose possible via extreme static discharge?). Or you somehow damaged the motherboard or other component (I don't see how this could possibly happen, unless you did something incredibly wrong, and even then it would be hard).

This has been an exhausting day! I've been trying to figure this out for quite awhile.

To start, I'll post some information.

My webcam was working fine yesterday! I tried doing a system reboot to the the week before that and alas the issue prevailed. My internal webcam is not being registered by my laptop!

So the solution that seemed obvious enough was to check my drivers, update them if necessary. Which I ended up doing. Alas, the issue prevailed.

Checking the device status, I received the error "Currently, this hardware device is not connected to the computer. (Code 45)

To fix this problem, reconnect this hardware device to the computer." The device is currently registered as 'Unknown device' as I uninstalled the driver. I was receiving the same error when I did have the original drivers though.
Looking up what the error means, it meant that the device was disconnected. I'm not entirely sure how this could happen though with an internal laptop. I also need to get a new copy of the drivers (Which don't seem to be registering the device upon installation).

Anyway any help would be appreciated as this has become a huge headache for me, and i just want to skype with my friend!

A:Need help with internal webcam drivers for Lenovo Ideapad y510p.

Hello, A few days ago, my Lenovo Ideapad 700-15ISK randomly begun BSODing every login, saying VIDEO_SCHEDULER_INTERNAL_ERROR. I suspected that it was because of a corrupted driver with my GPU (GTX 950M), and figured a reinstall would fix this issue. However, I tried reinstalling windows, deleting all partitions, updating my BIOS, and have used DDU in safe mode many times. I even tried reinstalling the Lenovo drivers for the BIOS, Chipset, and Intel VGA. However, I am still having this BSOD when I try to install the nvidia graphics drivers, and the installation approaches the end (It almost seems like the BSOD happens every time the GPU is activated). BlueScreenView is saying watchdog.sys and dxgkrnl.sys (DirectX Graphics Kernel) are the culprits. I am lost at what to do at this point, and I understand that this could be an issue of hardware with my GPU (but am really hoping it's not). However, I wanted to reach out here first to see if anyone could give me some guidance, or to see if anyone else is having this issue. Thanks!

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

For some reason I got annoyed by some of the listings in the start menu and I removed them. That's not a big deal, but W8 isn't working the way I want it to right now anyways.
I've looked up ways to downgrade to windows 7, the default OS of this laptop I have, and I have NOT been able to find a useful guide that makes sense. Even the one on MS's page that tries to explain it.
Will upgrading to W10, then re-downgrading back to 8 fix some problems such as registry changes, and things like VERY specific, small and deep changes to my computer's settings (that I can't even dig back up)?
Is this safe?

A:Will upgrading then downgrading W10 fix PC issues?

Hi JimmyKarter Basically, no it won't work. If you upgrade to Windows 10, it might fix the issues you're having, since it'll be a clean upgrade. If you downgrade however from Windows 10, it'll use the Windows 8.1 installation you had that will be saved in the windows.old folder, so the settings will be restored, even those which "annoys" you.

Ok, so I have a couple questions. I'm going to refer to this later, so I'm posting my computer specs right now, and then after explaining, after what I did.

Current rigs:


AMD x2 6000+ ~ 3.0 ghz (dual core)
2 gb RAM ~ 1066 mhz
7950 GT OC (two in sli)


amd 64 3200 ~ 2.2 ghz (single core)
1 gb RAM ~ 266 mhz
x700 pro
(keep in mind this computer ONLY supports ddr and AGP)

Now, here's my idea, from making my gaming rig, I had old parts:
AMD x2 4600 ~ 2.4 ghz (dual core)
motherboard that supports PCI-e, DDR 2 RAM.

Now, I take the old mobo, and processor, which gives me dual core, to replace my *other* computer, then I take ONE of the 7950 gt oc's out of my gaming and just buy a stick of RAM.

I will only have to spend $80 on some DDR2 RAM to turn my other computer to this:

AMD x2 4600
2 GB RAM ~ 800 Mhz
7950 gt oc (only one)
This new *other* computer will support pci-e and ddr2 instead of only agp and DDR

and my gaming will just not have SLI 7950 gt oc's.

My question: would it be worth it to have the other computer turned into the new other computer?

Question 2: Will a 7950 gt oc WITHOUT SLI be a big loss over two of them in sli? (cause I don't have an extra PCI-e card, I will have to take one of them out of my gaming rig)

Please help.

I have an unused Dell Dimension E521 Product Support | Dell US with Windows XP. I added memory for a total of 3.5 GB of RAM, anything else is stock.

I am thinking of upgrading the machine to Windows 8.1 or downgrading it to Chromium OS.

Option #1: Upgrading the machine to Windows 8.1. I happen to already have the DVDs & retail product key, so there is no $ expense for me going this way. Dell has only drivers available up to Windows Vista, but I believe the machine will work for basic functions such as web, MS Office including Outlook, and printing. I don't plan to do much else with the machine. Windows 8.1 comes with Windows Defender for basic security.

Option #2: Downgrading the machine to Chromium OS. I have been looking at CloudReady?s free offering for individuals Neverware It is basically Google Chrome OS with a few differences. It is basically a secure OS, but CloudReady strongly recommends a BIOS password, and I am not sure if the motherboard supports that. Web is no problem. I would have to work with Google apps for MS Office files, except for web email rather than Outlook. Printing via the Cloud should work.

I am on the fence which way to go (option #1 or #2) and I would appreciate comments, thanks!

A:Upgrading to Windows 8.1 or downgrading to Chromium OS?

Welcome to the forum. The specs can differ for the pc but it should run win8 ok and even windows 10 which you would get for free. If you installed 8 it would give you the option for win10 and test to see its ok. I have upgraded one of these to win 10 with no problems you need the 32 bit as the max ram is 4 gig so there is no point in getting the 64 bit system.

You do have other option like any linux version would run ok and give more functions than Neverware

Hi there, So I recently got a new Lenovo Ideapad 110S-11IBR with Win 10 pre installed, its a great laptop.The only down side is it seems Win 10 is a bit to heavy for it, as sometimes it gets slower plus to be completely honest I'd rather have Win 7. I've read some threads stating this as impossible "The installer with require some drivers that can't be installed" they said. Is there any way that I can really do this? Or anyone with the same model has done it before? Thank you in advance.
