Hi berserk9999,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
I?m sorry to hear that your G580 Laptop is not entering the BIOS menu, and the BIOS can also be entered by pressing the OKR (One Key Recovery) button just beside the Power button and select advanced setup in the menu to enter BIOS.
 
Hope this helps!!!

hi adarsh_savant,
 
I think you may have concern in this thread,
http://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Lenovo-3000-and-Essential/G580-Bios-update-problem/m-p/1199186/highlight...
 
Here the suggested solution from neokenchi that helped.
 
1. Boot into the BIOS by repeatedly tapping F2 on startup
 
2. In the BIOS, navigate to the Boot Tab and set UEFI to Disabled or Legacy then press F10 to save and exit. When
the computer reboots, check if you still get the errors and/or if you're able to boot into Windows.
 
3. If same problem, leave the changes that you made on Step 2 and attempt to re-install Windows via a Windows 8 recovery drive or OneKey Recovery button (note that this will wipe the computer to factory settings)
 
Hope this helps,
Cheers!

hello, recently i had to clean install windows 10 32 bit on my laptop (g580-20157) and while installation i found that the bios version is 62CN31WW. i realised that i have never updated the bios to next version. there are two updates which i missed,  62CN44WW for windows 7 and 62CN97WW for windows 8. the problem is, the support page on lenovo asks to downgrade to windows 7 to update bios to 62CN44WW and upgrade to windows 8 to get the 62CN97WW. as it was clean install the windows 7 got deleted from my laptop. is there any solution such that i can avoid downgrading and yet update the bios to latest version?

Now i face fps drops. the games i used to play on my laptop with old bios, now started lagging. I also can't find the old bios file on support page. kindly advice.

Hi Puneet,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Forums.
 
We are really sorry to hear about the issue you are facing.
 
Firstly, Check BIOS? Sometimes a BIOS has fan speed controls.
 
This is normal as the game is running and full GPU is utilized, if the temp increases more than normal.  I suggest you to use the Laptop by placing it on a flat surface for good ventilation.
 
Please go through the below link to understand about Safe Temperature range for CPU?

A friend had a malware attack, a beeping error on Chrome about a Windows Defender error running Win 10. She managed to shut down Chrome and then shut off her computer. She tried turn back on, but it would not. I managed to start the computer by removing battery , AC power and the bios battery. The only way to turn on is to remove all of the above and then reinsert bios battery and connect AC power. The keyboard does not work properly, types mostly 6s and a few other characters (ie the shift key types an 's'). No wifi, no CD, no mouse touchpad. I can get into Windows 8, which I restored from factory partiton. Did not affect the operation. I assumed that the bios must have been over written, so I downloaded an update, but it will not install. Program goes through the motions, but the old bios is still there. I am using an external USB KB and mouse. I still can not get into the bios. Is there a way to "force" a bios update?

Hi everyone !I decided to upgrade my laptop cpu from Pentium B970 to i7 3610qm, so i explored the forum and didn't find though a relevant answer and i decided to ask if someone have or had the same model and upgraded their laptop to that CPU ?My motherboard has an HM76 Express Chipset so the i7 3610qm is supported, the difference is that i7 3610qm is 45W power but Pentium B970 is 35W, also the cooling system on my laptop is combined for CPU and GPU (that on some forums i find, it says that this TDP package is for 45W CPU's), and another question is may there be some bios block for the i7 CPU ? Because i studied the manual from this link: https://download.lenovo.com/consumer/mobiles_pub/lenovo_g480_g485_g580_g585_g780_hmm_v1.0_english.pd...and there is only i7 3612qm listed there as highest CPU supported.

A:lenovo g580 20150 latest bios.

My rule of thumb with BIOS updates is "if it is not broke, do not try to fix it" because there is always an inherent risk that a BIOS update can fail, and if so, leave  the system bricked (dead) requirnig a new motherboard, and there does not appear to be anything in the latest updates readme.txt other than specific fixes for Windows 8.1... So I would hold off. Summary of changes

Hello Everyone, Its a much discussed yet embarassing problem. I have a G580 with intel i3 processor. The machine is quite old (5 years i think) and has been subject to various OS upgrades, changes, flashes, dual boots systems like ubuntu & windows. Recently to upgrade the machine i bought an i7 processor (yes it is compatible, i checked the hardware manuals). Once installed  the display wont come on, i figured i needed a BIOS update. Thats where the terrible stuff started. I tried using the BIOS update tool downloaded from the official lenovo website with windows 10. As soon as i launched it, the command prompt like window opened and my computer froze. That happned a few times. Figuring, it might resolve itself I left it alone for 3 hours but it was still frozen. Also figuring that the tool is for windows 7 i ran it on compatibility mode. Still the same result. I read on some forum a guy had the same issue and it was resolved by reverting to windows 7. So i bought a new copy of windows 7 (yes i really want that i7 processor). Installed it and tried to run the tool. Still, it froze the minute the window opened (another 3 hour gesticulation time was given to he machine to unfreeze itself but in vain). So i tried to access the bios to see if there was a supervisor password preventing me from entering. Thats when i discovered that i could nnot access the bios at all. Ive attached some screenshots in the end to explain. Startup... Read more

Hello, The Problem:Recently I installed Ubuntu 14.04.1 LTS  to my HDD in UEFI mode. Soon I found out that I could not access the BIOS using F2, but F12 allowed selection of boot device. Reinstalling Windows, I found out that the boot menu still had the Ubuntu entry and I still could not access the BIOS. I searched on the web for a solution and before I could manage to find a proper one, I managed to delete both the ubuntu and windows boot manager boot entries, still locked out of bios. This time I could not boot into any OS, could not access bios using f2 nor access boot menu using f12.  The Solution:There was one last hope, during boot I noticed that PXE (Boot via ethernet option was still showing).Note: This solution requires you to update the BIOS. This is a very risky procedure, so proceed with caution. This will also probably void your warranty. If you can access boot menu (F12) and want to regain access to the BIOS (F2), boot into Windows 7. Install a bios update for your laptop (specifically for your laptop) available at The Lenovo Support Site. The oldest BIOS (probably for Windows 7) is preffered. If you donot have access to windows 7, perform step 2 and boot into the created ISO by creating a bootable CD or pendrive. Then goto step 11.If you can't access F12 and F2, cannot boot into OS, but can boot via Ethernet (there should be a message about trying Atheros Ethernet PXE Boot during startup), start from step 1. Perform the following steps on a s... Read more

Update: Even in the newest BIOS Update 62cn97ww (for Lenovo G580), Ubuntu causes the same problem. I came across a solution on the internet, that works without having to update the BIOS if Ubuntu can be accessed. To fix it, boot into Ubuntu (should be installed on the system), start Terminal and type in the following commands:sudo grub-install
sudo efibootmgr -b 0 -BReboot and F2 should work. BIOS should be accessible through F12>Tab>Setup also. Ubuntu will boot no more but can probably be fixed.

Hi

I got a new Lenovo G580 laptop which did not come with any pre-installed OS. I installed Ubuntu in UEFI mode (I had not disabled UEFI/Secure Boot). Later I installed Windows 7. During installation it asked me to format the entire format as it did not recognize the GPT partition. Accordingly without thinking twice I erased the entire HDD and installed Windows 7. Now I am unable to enter into BIOS

Things I have tried:
Tried with F2, F1 and Delete keys while booting
Tried removing the battery and booting while pressing the above keys individually
Tried removing the battery and adapter, held the power button for 1 minute
Tried removing the battery and held the power button for 1 minute while the adapter was plugged in
Tried pressing F12 and going to the APP MENU but I can only see "Diagnostic Splash" Nothing else and in that diagnostic splash screen I see that the System BIOS is "shadowed"
How can i gain access to BIOS so I can disable UEFI and install Win 7 and Ubuntu side by side

Hello.

I have a Lenovo G580 with Windows 8. I have a weird problem with audio. If the default audio is set as internal speakers and I plug in my headphones the sound just keeps coming from the internal speakers. But if I set the headphones as default, I can switch between the speakers and headphones as I want and there is no problem if only I play music from my computer.

If I try to play something from my browser, however, the sound only comes from the internal speakers and connecting the headphones does nothing. Except (and this is where it gets weird) if I play something from my computer first using the headphones. Then I can play anything from the browser and hear it through the headphones as long as I don't plug them out. If I plug them out, the sound switches back to the internal speakers and trying to plug in the headphones again doesn't do anything. So I have to play something from my computer again with the headphones plugged in and then switch to my browser to again play everything through my headphones.

What's wrong with it? Any way to make it work as it should work?

Hello!      I am new in the community and would like some help related to my recently purchased g580 lenovo laptop. I have used my laptop on a daily basis for a few weeks and just yesterday when I turn on my laptop, it starts up on a "OneKey Recovery" menu I have never seen before. It gives me 2 options about system recovery: 1) Restore from initial backup or 2) Restore from users backup. I do not know how to use the second option so I chose the first one and continued to follow directions. Afterwards it starts to restore the system and I let it wait until it is finished. When it is done, I press finish and then I press done, and a prompt asks me if I want to shutdown or reboot. I chose shutdown and I turned the laptop back on, only to see the "OneKey Recovery" menu to show up AGAIN. This problem won't stop and this menu continues to show up whenever I start my laptop up! I need help, what can I do to fix this problem? And can someone please let me know why this menu came up in the first place as well? Thank you.

Hi Tbros,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
I?m sorry to hear that your G580 Laptop is getting into OKR (One Key Recovery) menu whenever you turn ON, this may have occurred if the OKR button beside the power button is stuck. But try performing Flee Power and reset the BIOS to its defaults, below are the steps to perform the troubleshooting:
 

Remove the battery and any other peripheral device connected to the computer. Hold the power button for 10 seconds and then connect only the AC Adapter and try to turn ON the computer.
Then keep tapping on the?F2? key before the Lenovo Logo appears to enter BIOS menu

       Note: To check how the BIOS menu looks and to explore its options Click Here.
 

Then to reset the BIOS to its defaults click on ?F9? Key and select YES.
Now click on ?F10? Key to safe the changes that are done in BIOS, computer will automatically check if the issue is resolved.
If the issue persists even after performing the BIOS reset, I would Strongly Suggest Calling Technical Support for Assistance.

Click here to open a link where you can select the country and get the exact contact support number, I?m sure they will be a great help.

My laptop suddenly just won't boot up one fine day, an when I go into BIOS, this is the info I get.
I tried almost all permutation combinations of BIOS, with no result.
Removed the HDD, tried using it in an external Lenovo Laptop, it works with no issues, so I presume it is not an HDD issue, coz I was able to read and write to my HDD with an external Lenovo Laptop using a compatible connector.
Note that while using AHCP Enabled mode, the system is not even allowing me to get into the BIOS setup(F2).
I had to literally remove the HDD again and then set the AHCP mode to Compatible.
 
I can extract the data from the HDD since it's working, but that's not the point. All my work is tailor configured on this laptop with a lot of licenced softwares. Don't want to reinstall and ... Read more

Hello,  I want to replace my old hdd in lenovo G580 with intel I3. Will Intel® SSD 540s Series (180GB, M.2 80mm SATA 6Gb/s, 16nm)  be compatibile? Specifications here: https://ark.intel.com/products/94334/Intel-SSD-540s-Series-180GB-M_2-80mm-SATA-6Gbs-16nm-TLC 

A:Lenovo G580 - ssd compatibility

Hi Welnk,
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
Although the G580 model was not released with SSD, several members have successfully upgraded their HDD to their choice of SSD as discussed here.
 
We cannot guarantee Intel® SSD 540s Series but should work as long as the specifications are the same else you can scan it with crucial to match. Best to check return options when purchasing from third party resellers just in case.
 
Hope this helps answer your query.
 
Regards
