Preferred Solution: Lenovo b590 wont boot

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

The water has shorted out the charging system on the motherboard. For future reference, if you spill any liquid on a laptop, open it up fully, and turn it over upside down on a towel and bounce it gently for a few times. Leave it there for 24 hours Your laptop is most likely toast...

I have a B590 that came with Windows 7 Pro. I have been trying to get it to boot from USB and nothing seems to work.
I have the settings in the Bios at,
Under Boot Tab
Change Boot mode to Legacy
USB Boot should be enabled
Under Security
Secure Boot is disabled
and I set USB at first boot device.

As soon as I save and exit from Bios, it boots Windows.
I reboot and use F12 and click USB and it boots to Windows.
I have tried a Data Traveler and a Patriot Slate.
I have made them bootable in diskpart and tried FAT and FAT32.

Does anyone have any knowledge about this? I asked this in Lenovo forum, but I figure you guys are smarter.

A:Lenovo B590 wont boot from usb

Hello philetus now this begs the question what is on that USB stick? If it some form of Windows 7 media I am wondering how you managed to get it on a stick and also have you updated the USB drivers.

I am also concerned that you have been into the BIOS and changed it around like that not that I am any great expert on what should be changed, but I do know I had to change a few of the EUFI settings on my Asus ROG to get it to boot 7 which included changing the BIOS to the latest version before I could install 7 drivers.
This is the complete list for 7 64bit and the USB is second from bottom Laptops and netbooks :: Lenovo B Series laptops :: Lenovo B590 Notebook - Lenovo Support (US) -

http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/prod...loads/DS029316

Just a by the by EUFI BIOS on a laptop is in my experience harder to figure out than a desktop machine.

I've just bought this laptop, and it came with windows 8 preinstalled, and I'm trying to install Windows 7 on it.

I have a bootable usb, which I've used many times to install Windows on my other laptops, but the B590 just wont do it. I feel like I've tried everything. I changed the boot priority order in BIOS with USB HDD as number 1 but it still just boots into windows 8.

I've tried removing everything but USB devices from the boot order, and now I get this boot menu:
http://i.imgur.com/1iV2iaW.jpg

Which is exactly what I want to boot from, but when I press enter to boot from the USB device, nothing happens. It's incredibly frustrating.

The USB device IS bootable with a primary partition. I've used these steps to make it bootable in DISKPART:
http://social.technet.microsoft.com...how-to-deploy-windows-7-from-a-usb-drive.aspx

After having no luck on the B590, I tried booting on the USB on a different computer, and it works perfectly well. Starts installing windows 7. So it seems like the problem is not with my usb device.

I even tried restoring the USB drive and using Lenovo Bootable Generator application to make the usb bootable, with the same result.

Can anyone help?

hi Reichtofer,
 
Thanks for Posting!
 
Try opening Control Panel / Uninstall a program and uninstall the Lenovo Energy Management / Power Management Software,
   Restart the system if prompted.
 
 
Now download and install this
     Lenovo Power Management Driver  
 
If  after the installation you were able to see a shortcut icon on your desktop,
    try navigating Crogram Files or Program Files x86 
            now look for Lenovo Folder and It shouldbe located there.
 
Hope this helps
Cheers!

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,

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?

A:Lenovo B590 not Booting at all

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.....

The power indicator lits on for about 2 seconds, and the fan starts running. Nothing on the screen. Than, it shuts off. fan stops. For about 2-3 seconds. And then it lites up again. And this sequence repeats itself. I've checked the battery and the charger and they are ok. So, what's next???

Almost a year ago now. I had a error for my fan on my lenovo b590 show up, I took it apart. Ordered a new fan from eBay and well it wouldn't fit. It was a little bigger than the old fan. I'm ready to finally fix it again. Can someone give me the link of where to buy a new fan. One that will fit it. On amazon, eBay or another site that is decently priced. I don't want to order another and it not fit. Please and thank you

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....

Hi,

I recently bought Lenovo B590 laptop, installed Windows 8.1 Pro on it, downloaded/installed latest drivers from Lenovo from my laptop. I see a quite a lot blue screen errors. Most likely these started to appear after I installed and played "return to ravenhearst" game. But even I have uninstalled the game I still get the errors.

I downloaded test tools (memory, vide, motherboard, pci express) from Lenovo websites but they could not locate any problem (I ran these tests only once for a single pass).

At work we start all repairs with a set of diagnostics. Often they find problems that weren't even expected. It's a waste of time to try to fix software on a system that has hardware problems.
Please try these free diagnostics for starters: Initial Hardware Diagnostics
Also, please ensure that you have ALL available Windows Updates (it may take several trips to get them all).



Out of 5 memory dumps there were 4 different BSOD error codes. The differing error codes are usually symptomatic of a lower level problem within the system. They are usually caused by one of these things:
- borked (broken) hardware (several different procedures used to isolate the problem device)
- BIOS issues (check for updates at the motherboard manufacturer's website)
- overclocking/overheating - You'll know if you're overclocking or not. If uncertain we can suggest things to check.

A:Lenovo B590 + Win 10 = WiFi problem

Hi Swarm23 , 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
 
Just a headsup B590 may be affected by Win10 upgrade as a non supported model.
Windows 10 Upgrade Guide - IdeaPad and Lenovo NotebookLenovo supported systems list for Windows 10 Upgrade
After upgrading to Windows 10, some software or hardware functions of your computer might be unavailable. In addition, some software issues might occur. Installing the latest Windows updates, device drivers, and application updates may fix these issues 
 
Same reasons why support site do not have compatible driver available at the moment. 
 
What you can try is to go to the device manager and right click on the Wireless card under network adapter . Choose properties. Uncheck box on Power management tab "Allow to turn off to save power".
Go to Advance tab and set roaming aggressiveness / tendency to highest and restart . 
 
Check if there is a better connection , else proceed with choosing native driver offered by Windows .
Go to device manager and right click to update drivers , browse my computer , let me pick from the list and choose among those offered . Try each offered driver starting from top. 
 
Update us how it goes.

My Windows 10 Anniversary version broke down on my laptop Lenovo B590 some days ago.After trying several solutions in UEFI I changed the BIOS to load first from DVD/USB and after that I can't do anything - only first standard Lenovo screen shows up and then blank screen - tap Enter - no reaction. Using F2, F12, F9/Fn and/or Delete/Esc buttons don't help and nothing else. Esc gives "Entering Diagnostich Splash Screen" and then blank screen. Conclusion, impossible to get into UEFI any more.I then created a bootable USB with ISO image using Media Creation tool from my wife's/this laptop. Then trying to use the (restricted) repair function from USB without success - then tried to make a clean install but got error message saying that the partition on laptop was GPT version partition and the iso image don't fit to this.Then downloaded the ISO file directly using Media Creation tool and then used Rufus 2.10 to create a GPT partion for UEFI - but the Lenovo laptop would not react on the USB tool at all - meaning blank screen only.(Trying to create  the MBR partition version with Rufus on USB gave the same result as with the USB from Media Creation tool with the message that the partition on my Lenovo was GPT and therefore the MBR could not be used!)I have now talked to Microsoft support who could not help but referred to this community for help - so ....help, please?

Hello
 
For a Lenovo B590, Model number 59410449, which has the i5 processor, what is the maximum amount of memory that is supported?
 
Mine shipped with 6 GB.  I'm worried that if the max is 8GB, I will have to buy two 4GB memory sticks.  
 
Does anyone know what the maximum for this model number is?  Am hoping it is 16 GB!

A:B590 - Memory for Lenovo Model 59410449

Hi AC2000 ,
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
Based on the product specification for this model , memory :
8GB max7 / PC3-12800 1600MHz DDR3, non-parity, two 204-pin SO-DIMM sockets; * System automatically clocks down for processors with 1333MHz memory controller 
 
This is the recommended Max memory supported for your model eventhou some processors can handle more (example : 15- 4310U handling 16 GB) since certain consideration are maintained by the systemboard and BIOS for full functionality and avoid non essential upgrades for users. 
 
Your 6 GB ram probably have 2GB and 4 GB (PC3-12800 1600MHz DDR3) at the moment so you can simply match the a similar 4GB to max it to 8GB and be able to use dual channel synch for faster communication and transfer. 
 
Hope this helped answer your query.

hi nonesofar13,
 
Welcome to the Forums.
 
The B590 (6274) does support an SSD and you can opt to get a 2.5" or an mSATA form factor.
 
- Sample items
- Sample items
 
Since you already have a HDD, you can try to get an mSATA SSD and make it as your boot drive and just make the HDD a storage drive (i.e., For picture, movies, etc.).
 
 - Sample image
 
Alternatively, you can just replace the HDD with a 2.5" SSD and optionally get an caddy or a SATA enclosure to convert the HDD as an external drive.
 
You can refer to this video as a reference:

A:Lenovo Essential B590 MBX29IV-Can this run MKV 1080p files?

Based simply on the specs you have listed, it should be fine for 720p but may not do 1080p as the screen resolution may not go high enough.

You have listed the resolution as 1366x768 which should be fine for 720p (1280x720) but 1080p (1920x1080) may be too high for it.

Here's my sad story (I'm using a Lenovo Z580 laptop with Windows 7):

On Tues, 11/11/14 I installed all of the critical & important Windows Updates along with 2 additional updates (I don't recall what the additional ones were for).

After the updates completed I rebooted the machine, but the display did not come on. The lights and fan came on, but no display. I rebooted 3 or 4 more times and nothing changed. I plugged an external monitor into the laptop but got no display on either screen. From there I spent an hour or so powering the machine completely down, removing the battery, then rebooting while trying to enter either Safe Mode with F8 or the BIOS with F2 but each time I did the computer did not respond. A friend suggested removing and replacing the CMOS battery. I did that, put the machine back together, but now when I push the power button the lights and fan come on for about 1 second, go off for about 8 seconds, and that cycle (1 second on, 8 seconds off) repeats until I remove the battery. I did put back the original CMOS battery and the same thing continues to happen.

I've gone all over the internet for the past 2 days looking for suggestions and nothing I've found or done is resolving the issue.

Any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated. Right now I've got a brick, so I'm pretty willing to try anything.

Steve

    Hello, I need any help I can get.  I we hvae a Lenovo IdeaPad that suddenly wont boot up.  Was told there was a pop up warning about a battery that needed replaced, but unclear on WHICH battery.  When power button is pressed, the fan starts, runs for 3 seconds and shuts off.  The touchkey lights all light for a second then go out, except fo the volume touchkey.  No sound of spin up on HDD, no flicker on screen.  Have removed battery and tried to start on cord, with same result.  Cord tested good, with a clean 20.6 V  Have heard that dead/faulty CMOS battery can stop some laptops from starting, but unclear on where it is, or even a real possibility.

A:Lenovo IdeaPad z565 wont boot

I have heard that same rumour about the CMOS battery, but I've never seen a real live case, so I'm not so sure that it is true.
Your symptoms are indicative of a blown motherboard, but there is one more thing to try before concluding that.
Unplug the machine, remove the battery, then hold the power button depressed for at least 30 seconds, longer if your finger can stand it.
Then plug in and try to boot up.

Hi ;
I bought a Lenovo g585 from a friend. All my computer experince comes from before the UEFI.
I used a window vista ultimate disk and formatted my hard drive. I wasent able to get that to work
so I swaped out the hard drive for an other one i had. To make a long story short I am now left without
a working laptop . In the bios it says window 8.1 I have made a usb flash bootable drive using my home computer which is running windows 10 that didnt work. I also downloaded an windows 8.1 iso file and the dvd
burner to make that bootable. still not working now I am getting a blue screen and it shuts down before I can
even read the error code. I do want to mention that I changed things in the bios from uefi to legacy not once have I ran into boot from dvd I have looked everywhere for how to get my laptop to boot from the dvd.
any input would be greatly appreicated.
 

A:my laptop Lenovo g585 wont boot

Use Rufus to create a bootable USB flash drive from a Windows 8 or 8.1 .iso.

Hi nikar15 , 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
 
Would you have the machine number? Check on the machine number from the sticker or check it from here ,just keep your serial number confidential.
Was it previously on Win8.1 ? Did you manage to create a recovery media ?
 
It would have to power drain the machine by removing the charger , battery and harddrive and to press and hold down the power for 12 seconds. 
 
Without the harddrive and battery , try going to the BIOS by FN + F2 or use the Novo button to start. If you manage to get the BIOS set up screen , go to the Exit Tab and load optimal defaults and save and exit. Turn off and put back the battery and harddrive and check.
 
Update us how things go. 
 
Regards

Ok, so, about a year ago I bought for my GF's birthday a G400s, and oh boy, if I knew it would be one of my worst purchases ever made, I swear to the seven heavens that I would just give the money to the charity... So the problems started with the Samsung HDD that came with the notebook, it stopped working in 3 months after the purchase, then after a long battle with Lenovo Brazil (witch by the way, is one of the worse company that I had the displeasure of ever getting to speak with their Customer support), I gave up and bought a new HDD and changed it by myself. Then again, the notebook made a favor of frying the HDD... Then after that I changed again, and guess what? The notebook won't boot up again!!!

So I have a Lenovo laptop that untill a few days ago was working just fine. It was a little slow but nothing to worry about. Now i cant even start up windows normally. When I try and start up in normal mode it just gives me a black screen with a courser. A friend of mine had me download Hamatchi and I was stupid enough to just accept everything... -_- and my computer didn't like it.
 
A few thing that I know that I have on my computer are tubedimmer and scorpion server saver and a whole lot of PUP.conduit stuff. I know that they are bad for my computer and I had taken measures in my own hands before I came across this forum.  I ran Microsoft  Security Essentials and Malwearbytes and Malwearbytes turned up with all of the PUP.conduit things and MSE came up clean. 
I have CCleaner but have yet to run that as I don't think that an of these are going to work to well when I can only run them in safe mode. :/ 
 
If there is anything you want me to do or any suggestions for me on where to start I would love to hear them. 
 
P.S I work at bestbuy and a few of my coworkers told me that Im kind of screwed and that I would have to reformat or wipe my whole computer and install everything over again....that would be my last resort if I have to.

A:Lenovo Comp wont boot in normal mode

Hi -
Do you mean Hamachi ?? Rather than Hamatchi ??
 
In Safe Mode only you will have problems - Try for Safe Mode with Networking -
 
First -
Download Security Check by Screen317 from HERE
* Save it to your Desktop.
* Double-click SecurityCheck.exe
* Follow the onscreen instructions inside of the black box.
* A Notepad document should open automatically called checkup.txt; please post the contents of that document.Note: If a security program requests permission to access the Internet, allow it to do so.
 
 
Next -
Download MiniToolBox, Save it to your desktop and run it.
Close any Firefox browsers you may have open
Checkmark the following boxes:
•Flush DNS
•Report IE Proxy Settings
•Reset IE Proxy Settings
•Report FF Proxy Settings
•Reset FF Proxy Settings
•List content of Hosts
•List IP configuration
•List last 10 Event Viewer log
•List Installed Programs
•List Users, Partitions and Memory size.
•List Minidump Files
 Click Go and copy / paste the result (Result.txt).
 
Next try this as it will run in Safe Mode -
Please download Rkill (courtesy of BleepingComputer.com) to your desktop.
There are 2 different versions. If one of them won't run then download and try to run the other one.
You only need to get one of these to run, not all of them. You may get warnings from your antivirus about this tool, ignore them or shutdown your antivirus.

I couple days ago I alowed my idea pad to update windows 8. The next time I launched it I got to the desktop but then the screen would flash on and off forever. I downloaded the program to update the drivers because I assumed it was the drivers. After only being able to do anything in safe mode I booted it up but I couldn't get the drivers program onto the computer because safe mode doesn't let you do alot.  I then decided to just do a reset within the windows recovery program. I pressed save personal documents and reset. Now when I turn on my idea pad it just shows a black screen with the loading circle spinning forever

Hello everyone! I ama new user and i am coming up with this post as I couldn`t find any kind of solution for my problem.Recently I decided to do a reinstallation of my operating system, which also previously was Windows 7 Ultimate (x64). The installation went as usual, and after finishing it I went on to install all the latest drivers from the Lenovo site, for my product. When getting close to installing almost all the drivers i`ve needed, i stumbled upon a new version of the BIOS amnd the drivers and sfotware recommended for my laptop, by the producer. So i proceeded to install the upgrade, restarted the computer when it prompted me to do so, but after the so-called restart the laptop did not boot up as usual. At first it was telling me to not do anything as the BIOS is being flashed and then it was telling me something about some sort of image processing, things that i did not understand at the time (i have never encountered anything like that). After that my screen turned black. I have not done anything for a few couple of minutes as i thought it was supposed to be like that, but then i just force shut it down and unplugged the AC adapter. When trying to boot it all up again, the only thing i got was a black screen and nothing else.After doing a little bit of research it appears that, somehowm i`ve managed to corrupt the bios on my laptop or something, and nothing else would work at this point. I tried to remove the BIOS battery and the ram and then put them all back, trye... Read more

Hello bree1234 and welcome to TSG.

I'm guessing it's not but if it's still under warranty send it for repair.

Is the screen completely blank all the time, no text or anything else is displayed at all ?

Shine a light onto the screen and check if there is a faint display of text etc.
