Q: IdeaPad Y580 - "Energy Management" killed my batte...

Hi, I have an IdeaPad Y580 with Windows 10 Pro. The battery is 10.8V, 72Wh, 6700mAh / 11.1V 6200 mAh. The battery indicator in Windows was showing something like "65% not charging" the whole time. I went to Lenovo's "Energy Management" tool and started "Battery Gauge Reset".The software said this will completely charge and discharge the battery and I should not use the laprop in the meantime, so I left it running the whole day. When I came back the machine was hanging: screen was dark, the keyboard did not respond. The power button was lit up, but did not react on normal push. I pushed it longer for a forced shutdown and voila. The laptop is now dead. It does not start. When I press the power button, the battery indicator LED blinks 3 times in orange and stops. The only way to start the laptop is to remove the battery, unplug the power supply from mains and shorten the mains lead to discharge any capacitors. Moreover, decided to measure the voltage coming out of the power supply with the battery in the laptop - the connecting leads i used went really hot within seconds and the voltage dropped from 19.5 to under 18.5V. I am not sure what is going on, but either the charging circuit or the battery is overloading the power supply. Any help?

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.)

grep wrote:The battery indicator in Windows was showing something like "65% not charging" the whole time.The display "nn%, not charging" is normal when the battery conservation mode has been activated. The thinking is that the batteries in laptops which spend most of their time on mains power will have longer useful life if not kept at 100% charge all of the time. The value for "nn" seems to vary. I have one version of the "Energy Management" application that uses "80" for "nn", whereas the current version of the app uses "60" for "nn". So the value of "65" is not out of step with these values. I cannot offer you any advice to extricate yourself from the bad place where you now find yourself. It needs someone with more knowledge than I. Good luck. -- from CyberSimian in the UK

Greetings! While I do understand that on Y580 there is no hardware button available for the thermal management software, I do not understand why this software is not included in the drivers. To use it, should I install the energy management drivers for another Y model? Is that recommended at all, or are there risks? Please advise on how I can enable thermal management safely for my IdeaPad Y580. If that cannot be done, please give instructions on setting up SpeedFan or some other fan control software. Thank you. Best regards,S

A:Thermal management on IdeaPad Y580

Yes you need to install energy management for controling fan speed.Dowoad from belowhttp://download.lenovo.com/consumer/mobiles/cagt24ww.exeThere are no risks.

Hello, As stated in the title, I have a Lenovo IdeaPad y580. I purchased it approximately three-and-a-half years ago, and only now is it really beginning to chug durings its processes. Point is, I want it to last perhaps another half year or so while I finish saving up for another computer. As a gamer, I'm fine with the limitations of the GPU, but sometimes my laptop legitimately has issues processing stuff, such as loading Google Chrome properly. I know enough about Windows to clean out viral matter and uninstall programs that I don't use that are running in the back. But does anyone have any tips or tricks to make this hunk of junk last maybe six more months before it becomes unusable?TL;DR I need to make my laptop run at least a reasonably sub-average to average level for six more months. Any tips are appreciated.

A:Ideapad Y580 sound cutting out

One suggestion..... have you tried uninstalling the audio driver, reboot the computer and then install a fresh copy of the driver.  If the previous driver installation was faulty, installing the latest driver may have not corrected the problem.

My original HD is going bad so I decided to buy a new HD and an mSATA SSD. I've read more forums and watched more videos then I would have liked and I still can't find anything that can walk me through this. I want my mSATA to be configured like my original HD with a C: and D: partition and it to be able to run one button recovery and everything else that the original HD was able to do. Then I want the replacement disk HD to be just for storage. My computer did not come with an mSATA originally.

 If your old HD is still operating, you should be able to clone it using the steps shown below.   Be warned that you must clone the whole drive, including all the hidden partitions, and can only resize the Windows Partition or the OKR recovery will not work, so the new m.2 SSD must be large enough to hold the entire contents of all the partitions of your existing HD drive.    Use Windows Drive Manager to view the sizes of the other parititons on your HD> If you need to make room, back up all your data and then delete from the current OS drive partition before cloning. http://www.laptopmag.com/articles/install-m2-ssd-lenovo-t440s Read this thread as well, it points out some important rules that must be followed when cloning so thaat OKR will work afterwards.https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Lenovo-P-Y-and-Z-series/Enable-onekey-recovery-after-HDD-to-SSD-cloning... Hope that helps, and good luck

Does anyone actually know if the "Dust Removal" in the energy management program actually works to remove dust from the laptop? I'm a bit reluctant to open up and dissect my laptop to check for any dust accumulation at this point, since everything has been running fine.This question came to mind since I saw that the filter at the bottom of my laptop was kinda caked in fine dust - wondered if the same was inside my laptop. I got the laptop in December 2012.

A:Dust removal in Ideapad Y580

hi marshchen,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
That application can only minimized collection of dust in the Exhaust system of your Laptop.
    Since the process of the vents is to get air fom the outside to pass through the heatsink . Dust collection cannot really be avoided.
    
   One symptom of a fan and vent dust is that when the vents blow very hot and minimal air and the laptop is heating up more than usual.
 
A yearly cleaning would be ok.
  You can refer to the Maintenance Manual of this model on how to open the cover and get to the heat sink.
You might also want to refresh and apply new Thermal paste to the Heat sink.
 
Just be careful on the plastic parts and also wear an anti static starp. If you're not comfortable doing this, You can opt to have a repair center do this.
 
Best Regards
Solid Cruver

A:Ideapad Y580 Black screen with cursor

Hi cablecons,
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
We would need to isolate the the stage where it causes the issue.
Making the BIOS appear onscreen is a good sign that the sytemboard is functional and we can continue on possible issue with the harddrive or software/drivers.
 
Here is the hardware manual for parts removal guide.
To start, unplug the charger and remove the battery. Press and hold down the power button (12 seconds) to drain flea power. Connect the AC charger and press the One key recovery button (item6 page 71) and check how it goes.
 

 
This supposes to power on the laptop and shows Novo menu.
 
If same black screen then disconnect the charger and remove the harddrive, press the power button down for 12 seconds. and turn on using the same One key recovery button.
 
Update us how it goes.

Alright, so early I tried to overclock my Nvidia GTX 660m Card, and it worked. the base clock speed is 835mhz, and the memory is 2500mhz. I OC'd the clock speed to 970mhz, and the memory to 3000mhz. It all worked fine, and boosted my gaming framerate quite a bit in PlanetSide 2 and Skyrim. ( I used NvidiaInspector to overclock, btw.) I went back to the overclocking interface, and accidentally set the memory rate to around +1300mhz. I then, without realizing, clicked on set OC settings, and it crashed my card. It rebooted, but now whenever I go into Nvidia Inspector to check my clock/mem speed, they're both set on 405mhz while idle or if there's a high load on my card. It's been stuck like this for a few hours, and I've tried several tweaks to fix it, including a reboot, rolling back the drivers, and then reinstalling the drivers, etc., with no resolve. I really need some help, as this is affecting my gaming horribly, and I'm getting terrible framerates. Please give suggestions/fixes as quickly as possible!

Thanks,

A:Ideapad y580 hard drive replacement

Hi vector74 , 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
Once you have the indication of a failing harddrive, ensure that you have backed up all files needed and that you have the product keys of your software as you would need to re activate it. Check if you can still create your recovery image .
Check your Mircosoft account for activated status and entitlement of the digital license for guarantee.
 
Factory image is on the original drive but since Windows 8 and Windows 10 image is easier to download with the needed drivers in the support site, then you don't need to worry since activation would be automatic as an OEM systemboard keeps it coded inside.
 
Hope this help answer your query.
Update us how it goes best for you.

I've been using this laptop for around a year or so now, and it's worked perfectly up until this point in time.  The issue that I'm currently having is entirely mechanical. At the moment, my keyboard is intact and works just fine. However, if I press a key, (mainly the 'e' key) off-center, it pops the entire key up and I have to click it into place. It's not life-threatening or crucial to the machine's function, but when I am busy typing papers or lesson plans, having a key on the most constantly used vowel key continually pop up really puts a dampener in things. I've taken the key out and have tried to click it back in. While I can't see what's going on (given that there's a key in the way!), I can most certainly feel it clicking into place twice, both clicks stemming from the right side of the 'e' key. It seems that, to the best of my knowledge, only two out of four prongs that are meant to keep the key in place and in line are actually snapping and holding the key down. Whenever I type off-center and to the right, the entire left side of the key snaps up and must be pushed back into place. I'm wondering if there's anything I can or should do. Given that I've had my machine for over a year now, I'm unsure if my warranty still covers it (speaking of, is there a way to check warranty status online?). Please, if anyone has any advice on how to fix or replace a busted key/keyboard, please, let me know!

A:Lenovo Ideapad Y580 - Keyboard Issue

A replacement keyboard (chicony, oki, or dafon are the makers - be sure to look for the manufacturer label and p/n right below the lenovo p/n on the back to get a genuine keyboard) would make a good spares, they are about $30 on ebay. I replaced a broken key on a few different laptops but much prefer to swap out the entire keyboard.  Once a single key goes bad it's likely that more keys will start to fail (note that 'e' is perhaps the most commonly used key on your keyboard because it's the most popular vowel.  Other popular keys like 't' might be failing sometime soon).  So I would suggest you buy a spare keyboard and save it until you can't live without it, the procedure to replace the keyboard is a 10 minute swap. If you want to replace a key, a sharp tipped (xacto-style) knife blade, and a loupe (magnifying lens) are important accessories.  Buy from a reputable site which has good instructions ( http://www.laptopkey.com/ ).  Unfortunately, the key and hinge are manufacturer-specific (OKI, Chicony, Dafon, see above) so you will need to determine it from the guide on www.laptopkey.com.  When I fixed our Acer c720 I also used needlenose pliers to bend a metal tab back into place, the key hinge wasn't seating correctly because the metal tab had bent and was open too wide.  The Acer c720 has a nightmare keyboard to replace with 75 different locking plastic tabs that bind it to the undersize of the palmrest, so i had little choi...

I have the a Lenovo Y 40-70. I've upgraded to Windows 10 and I need the "Lenovo Energy Management" program in order to fix the battery gauge, which is giving me inaccurate readings (battery dies when it's showing between 30-40%) On the Y 40-70's support page, the Energy Management driver for Windows 10 is some sort of corrupt file, only 1mb and it wont open. Any idea what's going on? The link to the faulty download file is here: http://support.lenovo.com/ca/en/products/laptops-and-netbooks/lenovo-y-series-laptops/y40-70-noteboo... I know my battery gauge problem has to do with a driver in the device manager called "Lenovo ACPI-Compliant Virtual Power Controller." Sadly I haven't found a way to disable this thing in Windows 10. If Lenovo has an incompatible driver on their systems, the least they can do is provide software for Windows 10 that will remedy the situation. They've got me running in circles.

Hello everyone, I've been struggling with wifi issues for over 2 weeks now. I have windows 8.1 (upgraded years ago from 8 to 8.1).The wifi would stay connected but the internet connection would drop about every 15 - 20 minutes. Sometimes, often after a reboot, the internet would hold up for about 2-2.5 hours but after that it would drop again every 15-20 minutes. The strange thing is that the icon would still show it's connected and hovering over it says there should be an internet connection.All I have to do is turn off and on the internet using the slider or enable/disable airplane mode and it would work again almost immediately. I also can use windows trouble shooter to fix it. Though it doesn't find a solution, it makes it work again long before it's gotten to the conclusion part. The conclusions I first got was "DNS problem" but now they changed to "router problem". That can't be it though since my parents use windows 7 and have no problem and I contacted the provider and they updated the router and nothing changed.  I've tried almost every online solution I could find, from using Google dns to flushing ip/dns settings and other cmd stuff, deleting temp files, disabling IPv6, using set IP/DNS adresses, updating or throwbacking drivers manually and through Intel update systems itself, forgetting the network and reconnecting, pinging different websites, use a different browser, disabling bluetooth, disabling other network adapters (even the hidden ones) and ...

I have Vista Home Premium on my Y430. I once disabled Lenovo Energy Management and used the build-in power management in Vista. My impression was that battery lasted longer when using the build-in one than Lenovo Energy Management (4 hours vs. 3 hours in balanced mode). I enabled Lenovo Energy Mamagement a while ago. But now I can not remember how to disable it. Does somebody know how to disable it? Thanks a lot.

A:how to disable Lenovo Energy Management

I hope you understand that worktime on battery depends on many conditions - mostly on intense of LCD backlight and CPU/VFA/HDD work.Anyway, you may try to simply uninstall it if you believe this will help to gain more battery life (which I doubt).

My Lenovo Y410P (64-bit edition) came shipped with Windows 8.1.  I upgraded to Windows 10 last year.  Recently, my computer began freezing, and often times would not boot up.  I was forced to re-install Windows.  All is fine now except that the Lenovo Management software is nowhere to be found.  Yes, it is available from the Lenovo website but there is no listing nor reference to that software that is compatible with the Lenovo Y410P running Windows 10 (upgrade) 64-bit.  As a result, my batter is stuck at the 60% charge with no way to change that. Can anyone tell me, definitively, if that software is still available for the Lenovo Y410P running Windows 10 Home 64-bit?  If so, where can I find it?

Hi, At begining sorry if there was similar topic, didn't found it. Cuple days ago I have installed SSD drive on my old Lenovo Z580 and decided to install fresh Windows 7 (x64 Home Premium, if it matters). I have a little problem with (probably) Energy Management software.  The "fan&temperature mode" panel always lights up fan cleaning. To begin fan cleaning I have to tap the touchpanel 4 times, to lit it up again. I cannot pick up any fan mode (of normal, quiet and "effective"). It seems like it's always on quite mode.The lcd brightness menu is also broken. Indeed it changes brightness, but the on-screen-"meter" jumps by 5 "points".Also I cannot turn off the touchpad. Even though icon shows it's disabled, it still reacts (it's very annoying). It's bit odd - on HDD I have old copy of same Win7 x64 Home Premium, but with some old drivers, and everything works fine (but slow haha). Here.. fresh install, new drivers&soft, not working. All drivers/software I have installed were downloaded from http://pcsupport.lenovo.com/pl/pl/products/laptops-and-netbooks/ideapad-z-series-laptops/ideapad-z58... Any clues?  Kind regards,Michael

A:Z580 - Energy Management software/menus

Hi Michalus , 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
 
With an SSD fresh install Windows , try getting the old drivers and softwares from the HDD and use it on the SSD image instead. Onserve how it goes after each driver installation starting with chipsets then video then network. Check the performance after those drivers before installing other drivers and application and see when any issue would show up.
 
Update us how it goes.
 
Regards

Hello, I have been using my Lenovo Y500 for 2.5 years now and like 1 month ago i have used the Lenovo energy management software to recalibrate the battery.  Next day at school my laptop didnt wanted to charge up when plugged in. After trying so many ways to let it charge i finnaly found a way to charge it up.  - Unplug the charger and remove battery.- plug in the charger and then in the wall-socket- insert battery I have to do this everytime when i want to charge my laptop.  The nex day i tried to find the problem. I did try another original adapter and battery. But that was not the problem.  So i went on the internet and search if this problem was more common.  After some research i found 2 websites telling the same problem as me and say that this is an motherboard fault caused by the lenovo energy management after battery calibration tool.  Now i am pissed at Lenovo for ruining my laptop with their own software.  I dont have any warranty on it anymore so what can i do? Just accept it that Lenovo screwed me? Or will this be fixed? Links: http://answertohelp.com/lenovo-y500-battery-will-not-charge-after-using-lenovo-battery-gauge-calibra... https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Lenovo-P-Y-and-Z-series/LENOVO-Y500-BATTERY-NOT-CHARGING-AFTER-USING-LE... https://www.techinferno.com/index.php?/forums/topic/3324-lenovo-y500-energy-management-may-destroy-y...  please help

Xono, I don't know if you're checking this forum anymore but I have the same issue and ran out of warranty, I am going to replace the motherboard and see if that fixes the issue. I will keep you updated.

I did a clean install of Windows 10 on my Flex2-15. Lenovo Energy Management is incompatible with Windows 10, and it's unavailable in drivers page. Battery is stuck at "55% available, not charging". I want to fully charge my laptop to 100% from time to time.  How do I do it? Thanks.

Hello I bought my laptop few days ago. I have installed Windows 10 x64 on it and I can't install Lenovo Energy Management (window just pops and nothing else). This is my first problem. The second problem is that my laptop hasn't run fans yet (it was noiceless) and it was fine. I'm doing the same things but now I can hear fans running on ~20% speed (I'm not doing anything else exept using Google Chrome or AIMP for music). Why I can't install Energy Management and why fans are now running even if I'm not doing anything? I have all driver and bios up to date. Temps are OK.
