Lenovo Z570 3rd generation CPU upgrade

Q: Lenovo Z570 3rd generation CPU upgrade

Hello there. This is my first post, and English is not my native language. I have Lenovo Ideapad Z570 Intel Pentium Dual Core B950 2.1GHz, with 750GB HDD, NVIDIA GeForce GT 520M (GF118M) and Intel HM65 (Cougar Point) [B3] chipset with 4GB RAM (http://itsvet.com/tekst/lenovo-ideapad-z570/5500/). I have already successfully upgraded it with Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-2540M CPU @ 2.60GHz Sandy bridge and with additional 8GB RAM (8+4=12 GB in total). It works great, but I'd like to upgrade it with 3rd generation CPU. I have read a lot about this and found that it is possible but it depends on the BIOS of the manufacturer and . I'd like someone to help me with this, either to confirm it is possible with this configuration, or to advice me how to contact manufacturer directly, since I couldn't find any email address of Lenovo support regarding this issue. Thank you very much in advance and kind regards, Afrocuban

Preferred Solution: Lenovo Z570 3rd generation CPU upgrade

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.)

About three weeks ago I upgraded BIOS on my laptop (as suggested by Lenovo Vantage) to latest version (N14ET45W (1.24), 3/01/2018). I am running Windows 10 64 bit. Shortly after that I started suffering quite frequent momentary freezing events where I had to wait between 10 to 40 seconds for the machine to continue working. During this period many of the running apps were closed and then reopened and I could not type or do any other thing. As you can imagine, this turned to be quite frustrating. I started searching at several forums, mainly Windows 10 related forums for a solution. U tried every possible solution, from updating all drivers to editing Registry etc. with no positive results at all. I was finally considering a full reimage of my machine when my latest resource turned to be rolling back my BIOS, as after checking on dates it seemed my suffering started shortly after my latest Lenovo Vantage drivers and BIOS update. Accordingly, I rolled Back from indicated BIOS to N14ET45W (1.23), 2/28/2018.Voila! This was the required solution. After that, my machine has been running smoothly, with no freezing events.Hope I had found a solution at any forum, and that?s why I am sharing this information here, as I really spent almost three weeks of frustration and unsuccessful searching/testing. I think Lenovo should test better and BIOS release. Hope my post may help other X1 Carbon 3rd Gen with a similar issue. DO NOT UPGRADE BIOS TO version (N14ET45W (1.24), 3/01/2018!!... Read more

So everything has been working fine on my laptop until about 10:30PM EST tonight. I bought it new in August 2011.
Specs:
 
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium
CPU: Intel Core i7-2630QM @ 2.00 GHz
RAM: 8 GB
HD: 750 GB
BIOS: 45CN36WW
 
It's always been a fine machine with NO problems.
However, last night there were Windows 7 updates that were installed and then restarted my computer. I had not gotten a chance to check exactly what they were though. About 10:30 this evening, flash crashed in Mozilla Firefox which is not that uncommon, and from there Firefox closed, and so did my Microsoft Word and Excel apps that were open. From there, my computer began to shut down and restart. When it went to restart, all it could do was go to the opening Lenovo screen which gives you the F2 (setup option) and F12 (multiboot menu option) as it typically does. Besides a thin strip at the top that appeared after about 30 secs that only displays moving static that eventually will just stick, that is where the boot process ends. No Windows 7 screen, and certainly no opportunity to boot into safe mode to check for any problems. The screen freezes and goes nowhere.
 
So basically, all I'm getting in terms of boot options are lenovo features, not windows 7 features, meaning it won't boot into windows 7 or windows 7 safe mode no matter what I try. The biggest problem here is that I have no windows 7 disc to even try to boot from my dvd drive.

Hi Pekacar,
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
There are no specific OEM SSD recommended but as long as the specification match then most SATA SSD should work just fine. Just have a good return option just in case and you can also review the discussion here and here as other community members have successfully upgraded their storage.

Welcome to EightForums khainguyen97

I can only suggest is to Restore Factory Default Setting to remove W8 OS and re-install in a partition drive. You can check the official website of lenovo to get information or call the re-seller of lenovo laptop and ask them on how you can restore the previous OS.

Once you are done with the Factory Default Setting use this guide as DUAL Boot Clean Install - Windows 8 or Windows 8 To Go - Setup on a USB Flash Drive or USB Disk to install W8 and run properly. Or if you like to remove the default OS of your laptop use this http://www.eightforums.com/tutorials...ndows-8-a.html but I prefer the clean installation in a partition drive, once you got in trouble of W8 you can use your previous OS.

Let us know once you made it.

Dear Members,I am in trouble with my  Idea Pad Z570: I bought it couple of years ago running Windows 7. During the years of usage I had no trouble at all. With Windows 10 beeing released, I upgraded and it starts to make a lot of troubles: Bluescreen directly after boot or sign in, no WiFi, ... all the known stuff. So I decided last week to downgrade to Windows 7. But now, I am even in a bigger trouble:I tried to boot the Windows 7 from DVD and it crashed into Bluescreen saying: Windows Error 0xc0000225Restarting is not helping. So, i tried to go into BIOS to boot from another device,but I do not even get to BIOS or UEFI. So, thats a kind of Deadlock: I cannot boot from Harddisk because Windows Error 0xc0000225 appears and I cannot get into BIOS & UEFI because the Windows error 0xc0000225 comes before getting to BIOS. Hope this description of my current situation is understandable and you guys have a lot of ideas how to fix it. Thanks!TheGooner

I have an older Ideapad z570, it made a popping sound and it won't power up now either.  I ordered a replacement adapter from lenovo thinking that was the issue as the light on the adapter was not coming on when it was plugged in.
 
After reading some of these boards, it appears I might have an issue with the mother board.  I would like to see abou getting it replaced, but there are no repair centers close to me, and I cannot find any information on Lenovo's webiste as to who I can contact or where I can send it.
And information to this end would  be greatly appreciated.  Sorry to tack on to this thread, but seemed silly to create another one for the same issue.

Hello, I have Lenovo Z570 and for some reason, inbuilt, speakers are not firing up. Before they wwent kaput, there was some nonsense noise few time and then no sound. I check thru earphone audio out port, I can hear sound thru it. What all I tried(a) Deleted and updated drivers.(b) Reinstalled the OS (Windows 10 pro)(c) Updated BIOS.(d) Checked Device manager, all ok, disabled other out audio device like Nvidia and Intel digital out. Before I open the laptop to change the speakers, I want to do a audio beep/loop test outside windows in dos mode or something. I have downloaded the latest Lenovo Linux Diagnostics ver 4.7.0.8081 Mar2016 and ran it thru USB, it does not give any option to test Audio speaker, I tried other 3rd party software like UBCD, Hiren etc but none give option to check speaker thru beep. Any one can help me with how to do this test. Thankyou in advance.

A:Lenovo Z570 inbuilt speaker test issue

Hi uzielkr , 
 
Gretings. 
 
As individual diagnostics do not offer ausio test, you may want to test it with the XP mode in Hirens and see if online audio would be heard.  As this model does have beep codes to identify post issues , removing the memory would give out those expected beeps ensuring that BIOS configuration tab on power beeps are enable as default since BIOS have been updated.
 
Update us how it goes.

Hello there!Would somebody be so kind as to tell me how I am able to turn off UEFI mode in BIOS of my Lenovo IdeaPad Z570?(I can see very few things and options in the BIOS menu at the moment.)It's necessary, since I'd like to reinstall Windows 7 Home Premium to my computer and during the installation process there is an error message - while choosing the partition where to install the system: "Windows cannot be installed to this disk. The selected disk has an MBR partition table. On EFI systems, Windows can only be installed to GPT disks."And I've read somewhere that turning UEFI mode off would solve the problem.By the way, I'd appreciate any other ideas or suggestions to solve this problem.













Solved!

Go to Solution.

A:Lenovo IdeaPad Z570 - MBR/GPT disk problem (or BIOS/UEFU)

There are two solutions for your problem.WARNING! Both the ways that I suggest will ERASE ALL OF YOUR DATA ON YOUR HD! If you have anything you want to save, copy it before doing it.First, easy, is to erase all partitions from your disk via windows installation utility. Then, windows will offer you to convert disk to GPT.Or, if windows doesn't do it in this 'automatic' way, you can convert disk to GPT using diskpart.For this, use this manual to access console http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/682-command-prompt-startup.htmlThen, type following commandsdiskpartWait until it loads, and thenLIST DISK <-- this will list currently connected disks, you should determine which of the disks is the one on which you want to install windows and remember its number.SELECT DISK <0> <--you should replace <0> with the number you had on previous stage, in most cases, it would be 0CLEANCONVERT GPTCREATE PARTITION EFI SIZE=200 OFFSET=1024SELECT PARTITION 1FORMAT FS=FAT32 QUICKCREATE PARTITION PRIMARY SIZE=<size_for_win_partition_in_megabytes> OFFSET=206848SELECT PARTITION 2FORMAT FS=NTFS QUICK That should be all) After this, you should be able to install windows on your hard drive.

A:Lenovo Z570 Spin Down (Autosleep interval 15 min) 2nd External Drive usb 2.0

I had the same problem after upgrading to Win 10 with Z510 and upgrading from old power management program to new. The laptop didn't turn off when:Application was on (e.g. photoshop, blender, games). When laptop was idle it turned off.Try checking that out on balanced power plan using the lenovo power management(as I didn't have any issues with sleeping).

My Windows 7 basically blew up and is no longer working. I tried a one-key recovery as well which utterly failed. As a last resort I tried using Windows 7 recovery disks sent by Lenovo. There are 4 disks 1,2,3, and an additional disk. Everything seemed to be going somewhat smoothly, although slow up until disk 3. The screen shows


"Current Item: ApplyOs" "Recover process is running please don't remove your power adapter."

It's been like this for days. The blue bar load bar under it seems to still be running. Tried again, this time with 4 different disks sent by Lenovo. The first 3 disks went a bit faster, but the end result was still the same, getting stuck on "ApplyOs". Does anyone know how to fix this problem?

A:Lenovo IdeaPad Z570 Windows 7 Recovery Disks will not work

I would Check the hard drive with the manufacturer's diagnostic tools.
