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.)

A: Lenovo G500s DVD-drive doesn't work

Hi Didam35,

Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!

I?m sorry to hear that the ODD (Optical Disc Drive) is not reading the DVD disc in your G500s Laptop eve after the latest drivers are updated, below are the steps to check and resolve this issue:


Ensure that the DVD you are inserting is in good condition.
Open device manager by clicking on Winkey+R key together, type devmgmt.msc in the Run window and select OK.

Example:

Now under ?DVD/CD-ROM drives? right click on it and select Un-install and then restart the computer to check the issue or scan for hardware changes. To scan for hardware changes, right-click the drive and select Scan for hardware changes.

Hope this helps!!!

Do post us back if the issue persists.

Best Regards

Shiva Kumar

Hi Ahmadsamir11,
 
Welcome to the Forums  
 
As per the query we understood that you are facing issue with DVD in your Lenovo G500s laptop.
 
As you have mentioned that this DVD is working in another system, try to swap check the DVD of other system in this system and check for the issue.
 
Also try to change the BIOS into default setting and check for the issue.
 
 Hope this helps. Do post back if the issue persists.

I have a Lenovo g500s touch laptop with Windows 8 that is not able to boot. The error message occurs very early in the startup process says ?Your PC needs to be repaired. The application or OS couldn?t be loaded because a required file is missing or contain errors.  File: \windows\system32\winload.efi. Error code 0xc000000f. You need to use recovery tools on your installation media. ?When trying to use OneKey recovery from the initial image, the recovery seems to start with the progress eye bouncing back & forth for about the 30 seconds.  Then the status = Intializing, the current file is blank, speed = 0 Bytes/Minute, Time elapsed continues to increase, Time remaining is blank and the status bar is blank with 0%.  I have let this run for many hours and it does not change. Booting via a USB recovery drive seems to indicate the hard drive is correctly working.  From a command window bootrec/fixmbr = successful; bootrec/fixboot = successful;  bootrec/scanOS says 0 windows installations found; bootrec/rebuildbcd also says 0 windows installations found.Any suggestions to fix this problem?

It's supposed to work with keeping finger on item some time, then release after that (it will open menu or just right-click). That doesn't work. It spoils all of the touch screen mode experience. (Surfing Youtube, for example) How do I get it to work? Please note that some areas it works, some it doesn't (e.g., on this website and on Youtube and on Facebook, it doesn't). Please answer. EDIT: It is the Chrome browser. Any idea how I can fix that?

A:Lenovo G500s FN key request

hi avernis,
 
Your problem migh be similar to this thread.
 
If you don't have the keyboard remapping feature in the BIOS, using an app called SharpKeys will allow you to switch function keys (i.e. Fn+F1 to a regular F1 key). I can't test this on the G500s as there's no available unit here in the lab but this tested and verified working on the Z400.
 
Give it a shot - Map Any Key to Any Key on Windows 7 / XP / Vista (works also in Windows 8)

I've had my Lenovo since December 17, 2012, and have faced some issues before. I recently had the battery and the adapter replaced. A couple of weeks back, the laptop suddenly stopped charging. Here are the details :- Adapter was connected, and current supply was checked using a tester.- Battery was connected properly.- The power and charge light started to blink. I looked for a solution online, and almost everywhere the following steps were asked to be followed :- Shut down the laptop.- Disconnect the charger.- Take the battery out.- Press the power button for 12 sec (some said 15, some said 20-30) to ensure any residual charge is taken out.- Reconnect the charger (not the battery), and see if the laptop gets switched on on power. I followed the steps to no result. Naturally, I went to a service center, where I was informed that the Integrated Circuit on the motherboard was faulty and they'd have to replace it. I said okay, and got it repaired. This was a week ago. Now all of a sudden, the laptop is showing the similar traits. Charger is connected, but it won't charge. Again, the battery and the adapter are new and fully functional. Sometimes, when the adapter is connected, the two lights will blink and sometimes they won't, but the battery won't charge and now my laptop sits dead. What are my options?

Hi all, I recently bought Lenovo G500s laptop. Initially it came with DOS. So, i took up partioning the HDD for installing Windows 7. So i changed the boot order to USB drive. Partioned my HDD and went on to install Win 7 through USB Disk. But now it says "Missing Operating System" and i cannot access the system BIOS using the Function keys. I guess, i had also messed up UEFI/Legacy settings in BIOS earlier. But now i cannot access the BIOS at all. Can anyone provide me solution to undo the same or reset the corrupt BIOS. Probably by uploading the G500s BIOS file, so that i can flash it in my laptop. Thanks for the help in advance.

A:Cannot Access Lenovo G500s BIOS.. please help

hi starfire1801,
 
Welcome to the Forums.
 
During boot-up, if pressing Fn+F2 does allow you to access the BIOS, can you try to:
1. Remove the AC adapter and battery then press the power button for 20secs.
2. Reconnect the AC adapter and press the OneKey Recovery button. If a menu appears, choose BIOS Setup.
3. If you get the same problem, download a free copy of Windows 8 Enterprise (90day trial) and install it on the system. When you get Windows 8 up and running, try accessing theBIOs via the UEFI Firmware Settings.
 
 
Hope this helps

Hello This problem that I have is not a recently problem. It occured I think One and a half years ago for the first time. The laptop is never crashed in the three years that I have him and I'm running now Windows 8.1. Not switched yet to 10. Now the problem is getting more and more worse. So when I press the powerbutton nothing happens. It doesn't matter, I figured out, that the battery is plugged in or not or that the laptop is connected with the charger. Every time now that I want to start my laptop I need to press multiple times but not with a specific rhythm. Sometimes he will start when I press for a longer period (around 5 sec), sometimes not. So he is very inconsistance. Luckily I still manage to get him working every morning but i'm afraid that it will not lost for a long period.  Is it possible that I have a hardware problem and not a software problem?Could it be that my power button makes false contact or that it is just some dirt that got into it?Is there a way to start my laptop without using the power button? Please I need to get rid of this problem because I'm now on a exchange program in Finland for my thesis and I can't afford my laptop to not work anymore! I hope someone knows a solution but I searched on the internet with a similar problem but I didn't find anything. Kind regards David Bongartz

A:Lenovo G500s laptop will turn on only after a lot ...

Hi DavidBongartz , 
 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
 
As how you describe , seems issue would be more as a mechanical on the power button. 
You can also turn on the PC using the novo button ( small key next to the power item 5 page4).
This would offer normal start up to boot on Windows.
 
Would there be a squishy or unnatural feel with the button ? 
Aside from the power button , beneath it is a power board that is shared by the lenovo button.
So if both buttons would fail, it may be the power board that is involved (item 3 page 80).
 
Thinking of another option , specially if you are working on an important document, to keep the battery always charge is to set the power option to just sleep instead of turning it off.  
 
Reminder : always back up your file on a separate location other than this pc like a cloud storage or an external storage for safe keep just in case. 
 
Update us how it works for you. 
 
 
Regards

I had bought Lenovo G500s laptop around 2 years back.It was working fine till now.Problem is whenever I start playing games on my laptop,charging light starts blinking red while still on charging.Does this mean there is some problem with the battery because it works fine normally but as soon as I do something that requires lot of CPU usage(load) it stops charging,battery status showing "Plugged in, not Charging".I am putting some points:  1. Should i I use my laptop in HIGH PERFORMANCE mode? 2. Has it something to do with the Nvidia GPU because i tried to run the game on intel integrated graphics it was lagging but charging didn't stop. 3. Is it due to internal heating of laptop that battery tries to save itself by not charging?(shall i use a cooling pad if that is the problem?)I am providing the specs of my laptop:Processor:Intel(R) Core (TM) i3-3120M [email protected] GeForce 720MRam:4GBWindows 8 64 bitPlease reply ASAP!!

Good day One of my clients came to me with a laptop issue She hasa Lenovo G500S Touch laptop. It sometimes freezes at the Lenovo Bios Screen. She is running Windows 7 on it as she does not like Windows 8  Now it does not happen all the time but its frustrating to her as she is not tech minded and she just wants the thing to work.  Sometimes it starts up normally and sometimes it just hangs at the Lenovo screen. I have tried removing the battery (sometimes it works) , tried resesting the bios and disabling USB boot. I have also tried to remove the hard drive and check it in another PC and its fine. When it does start then its fine. it mostly happends when she moves the laptop around or puts it in a bag and takes it out again. There are no bios updates for the Lenovo G500S touch but only for the Lenovo G500S which does not work on the Laptop. Is there anything else we can try as she has spent so much money on this laptop trying to get it repaired as she does photo editing on it and I know the warranty has expired on the laptop and at that stage she did not take out extended warranty. Is the motherboard now defective ? Please advise as I have never seen this in my IT career and now I don't think I must recommend Lenovo PCs to my clients if they are going to give these issues. I have even cleaned the RAM Slots too Looking forward to help here. Regards Roger StaceRSCOMPUTER SERVICE AND RETAIL SOUTH AFRICA.

You can try to uninstall energy management and the reinstall it back from the support site . 
Restart the pc and test. 
 
If same issue , you may have to physically open the cover and inspect the fan if it would be able spin. 
While turned of try to test if the fan will smoothly move by pushing it with a small stick. 
Check if there are clogged materials preventing it to spin like strands of fibers and dust. 
Use a blower as needed .
 
If you don't have the tools or experience on doing this best that you have a service technician in your location do it for you.  Herewith are the hardware manual for review and guide.

I have on my lenovo G500s laptop only wi-fi downloading 15mg, uploads 10mg. I have 100mg on all other computers, phones and tablets. I'm running windows 10 and downloaded updates. I checked network adapter Qualcomm atheeros AR 9485WB EG and ran update and the system at windows tells me it has the latest driver ver 3.0.2.201 dated 3-26-2016 already installed. My provider checked their side, using my imac, iphone,and ipad and all showed 100mb on speed test. I unchecked location as suggested but still same download. Any ideas?

Hi, I recently purchased new Lenovo P50s, and when I was trying to call skype I mentioned that microphone doesn't work. I was reading guidelines on mic problems, but nothing changed. Then I was contacting support, it looks like they tried to reinstall driver but it didn't help. I connected external mic, and its working ok. They offer me to give to service center, but I don't really like this idea, because it will take a lot of time. Computer had Win 8 installed originally, but I didn't try mic on it.  Did somebody met this problem and may have some resolution, maybe I should try to install some of specific driver which must be working on Win 10 or smth else.  Thanks!
