Preferred Solution: Does Lenovo G470 will support 5.0Ghz wifi?

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.)

A:G470 - Bluetooth not working after installing Windows 10 on G470

Hi ashu2000 , 
 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
Checking on the Lenovo supported systems list for Windows 10 Upgrade ,  "not listed, it hasn?t been tested for Windows 10 upgrade and is not supported. " for the G570 .
 
Same reasons why on the support site , drivers for windows 10 is not available. 
 
There are claims that it works ok but some have reported devices and apps not working after the upgrade. 
You may check related threads here . 
 
Would there be any yellow or black down arrow marks on the device manager . 
If that is the case , then you may want to try checking the hardware ID to download specific driver directly from the manufacturer if the Windows 8.1 version driver would not help.
Example for Broadcom Bluetooth 4.0 Driver or use windows updates to install appropriate drivers
 
On device manager , you may also use built in drivers in Windows 10  doing upgrade drivers and, browse on this pc , let me pick option, and choose recommended ones on the list .  
 
Hope this helps. 
 
 
Regards

I encountered the BSOD with the problem about atikmpag.sys It seems like I made a wrong choice about deleting it, (solution from internet searching)  and now the Display Adapters doesn't work anymore as you can see in the pictures  after deleting the atikmpag.sys during safe mode, It somehow resolved the problem about the BSOD and my laptop are finally starting properly now the problem is about the resolution, it's not the same anymore, it's too low and somehow the screen is blurry, as you can see at the Graphics section, the maximum resolution I can only choose is 1024 x 768, which is supposed to be 1366 x 768 (HD) if i'm not mistaken,   I need your help on how to fix this I hope i can turn it back to normal., I don't have a CD installer (if it is supposed to have one) to re-install it, and about downloading from other sites I'm a little bit concerned about that so I haven't tried it yet.. and it seems like Lenovo has its own installer... Pls help ASAP

A:Lenovo G470 atikmpag.sys problem

hi jm9327,
 
Welcome to the Lenovo Forums.
 
The G470 with a dual GPU (Intel+AMD), uses a muxless driver (this is a custom driver that switches the discrete AMD Graphics to the Intel Graphics to save power). If you have installed a different driver, this may cause system instability (including BSOD).
 
If you're running on Windows 7, try the following::
 
1. Follow this guide on how to disable automatic driver installation.
2. Install these drivers in order (reboot if necessary)
   (1st)  - Intel Onboard Graphics Driver for Windows 7 (64-bit)
   (2nd)  - AMD Video Driver for Windows 7 (32-bit, 64-bit)
 
When finished, check if the yellow exclamation marks are gone under Device Manager > Display Adapters and observe the screen resolution adjustment and BSOD occurrence.
 
 
Let me know how it goes.
 
Regards

Hello, I have a Lenovo g470, and I was wondering if it would be possible to get an Ivy Bridge processor. The manual says the following ones are compatible: Intel I7-2620M 2.7G 4M 2c J1 PGA processor CPU.Intel I5-2540M 2.6G 3M 2c J1 PGA processor CPU.Intel I5-2520M 2.5G 3M 2c J1 PGA processor CPU.Intel I5-2410M 2.3G 3M 2c J1 PGA processor CPU.Intel I3-2310M 2.1G 3M 2c J1 PGA processor CPU. But as it Ivy Bridge are backwards compatible with SB, I wonder if I could get a 3ª processor and put in this mobo. If not, does it worth to change from i3 2310m to anyone of these above?? i5 2540m has 200mhz higher clock on gpu and i7 has more l3 cache(4MB), or should I just leave like this?? I appreciate any help. Thank you.  (Sorry for my bad english)

(I am only writing this because my parents refuse to listen to me and they want "Lenovo" to help me with this problem.)So I own a Lenovo G470 (Ideapad) that I bought in 2011. About 7 months ago, the laptop's hinges started to become lose and then since 4-5 months, bits and pieces of the laptop case keep falling apart/breaking around the hinges. It was a bit bothersome but nothing too serious.However, last week the laptop's screen became tilted (??) like one hinge/side is up and the other is down. It's almost diagonal. And the wire connecting to the laptop screen is exposed (i dont know how) maybe because the hinge's piece broke so the wire is exposed and it's almost on the verge of breaking too. (Ill be attaching the pics of the laptop below.)My warranty expired ages ago. But I dont mind paying for the repair. Is there a way if I contact a real Lenovo store nearby and ask them to "repair" my broken laptop. My parents would rather spend 80-140 dollars repairing this than buy me a new 700/800 dollar laptop.Honestly, if some of you wanna tell me that this laptop is beyond repair, believe me I know!

A:My laptop's falling apart.. Lenovo G470

If you think you have a flat tire do you keep on going until the tire disintegrates and you destroy the rim? That's what you did to your own laptop.You should've taken action as soon as you noticed something is happening with the hinge.There's not much you can do right now to fix it. Only thing I'd advise is to find a broken one online with the body intact (at least when it comes to the bottom part and hinges). e.g. with a smashed screen and make a transplant. Have it done by a professional if you can't do it on your own.

A:Batteries Charge only 50% for Lenovo G470, is it normal??

Which version of Windows you have shouldn't affect how your battery is charged up so it's probably just coincidence.

You may be needing a new battery. Do you have anyone nearby who can check the battery for you?

Hi I was watching a movie and laptop went shutdown. I connected charger and battery was showing 76%. I removed charger and it immediately went off again. Now it starts only if connected to charger and goes off as soon as charger is removed. Any suggestions please

A:Lenovo G470 battery connection lost

Hi Mkmm9,
               
Welcome to Lenovo Community!
 
As per the query we understood that you are facing an issue with the battery charging.
 
Please disconnect all the external devices connected to the system. Also remove battery and adapter as well.
 
Now press and hold the power button for 30 seconds and turn on the machine and check for the issue.
 
 Remove the battery from your laptop and check the battery connection "pins" in the laptop. The pins are the vertical slots in the center of the battery tray. See if perhaps one or more may have been bent enough to not make contact with the battery pins. Also check to see if lint, dirt or some other foreign matter has gotten between the pins on either the battery or the laptop. Have you tried the battery from the other laptop? If a different battery doesn't work, your problem is with the laptop pins. One or more may have broken or become disconnected. Try all possible combinations to narrow down the trouble spot.
 
Hope this helps! Do post us back for further queries.
 
Best regards,
 
Ashwin.S

hi,

i have netgear r7000 (ac1900) router. it is dual band router. I cannot see 5.0ghz frequency range on my xps 13 9360 2017 model. I can see 5.0ghz range on my phone, tv and other devices. I updated all the drivers on my xps 13 but still cannot see the range.

A:xps 13 9360 (2017) would not show 5.0ghz Wifi

Try updating the firmware on the router.  The 9360 definitely supports 5 GHz since that's mandatory for 802.11ac devices.  And because this is a Netgear router, I assume that your 2.4 and 5 GHz networks have different SSIDs, correct?  That certainly helps when troubleshooting, but I've avoided Netgear equipment partly for that reason because it prevents dual band clients from picking the band that will work best for them at any given time.  With a laptop or phone that moves around, sometimes at longer range 2.4 GHz will actually perform better, but with uniquely named networks, the device will stick to whichever network is ranked more highly essentially until it can't see it anymore, even if switching bands earlier would have resulted in better performance.

After spending an inordinate amount of time searching the internet about my problem, and then contacting Lenovo (who told me it was hardware and I needed to return all of the laptops I bought), I managed to magically find the solution to my problem.  Since it wasn't documented elsewhere on the internet, I thought I'd create a post for it here. The problem I was having was that my Lenovo G470 laptop did not display Press F2 to Enter Setup during the boot process, and because of this, no amount of hammering the F2 button would allow access to the BIOS.  I attempted all of the standard fixes, pulled the battery, held power down for 30 seconds, removed the HDD -- nothing would cause this to appear.  Since it was happening on all 3 of the G470s we just purchased, I didn't believe it was hardware.  I reached out to Lenovo Premium Support, and after about 3 minutes of discussion, "Paul" informed me that all three machines were defective and would have to be sent back in for repair, and it would take 4-6 weeks for repair and diagnosis.   As I had been noodling around with the machines for a few days, ONE of the three ended up showing the bios options during the boot process.  At that point, I had been hitting just about every single key on the keyboard during the boot process, so I couldn't identify what it was that I did that caused the options to appear.  A little more troubleshooting and I figured it out: Lenovo G470 machines equip...

Upon describing the problem they just told me to restore my computer.

It wouldnt be the end of the world for me to have to backup and then restore. I just feel like there was zero effort to fix whatever the problem was, just restore it and start over.  Am I crazy?

Hello. Gosh i have alot of problems. I bought a Intel Pentium 4 3.0GHz with 1MB Cache and 800MHz FSB. When i go into BIOS it says 2.0GHZ clock speed 800MHz FSB. I cant change any settings but i need to get it up to 3.0GHz again

The BIOS says 800MHz and it is also in the manual so it must be supported.

ANY HELP WOULD BE GREAT

A:Pentium 4 3.0GHz HT runs at 2.0GHz

1. Update the BIOS to the most recent version for your computer and version of Vista. The update may include settings not available in the current version. It may also support 3GHz whereas the current version may be limited at 2GHz.

2, Verify that your motherboard can handle that CPU - it may not support 3GHz. I could find nothing about its specifications online.

I hope this helps.

Good luck!

A few weeks ago I saw the Lenovo K430 on NewEgg while shopping for a new Desktop. I was amazed by the K430?s features and great looks. However, after doing some research I became very baffled about the Power Turbo Switch and the many horror stories about upgrading the graphics card. I called Lenovo Technical Support to talk about possibilities and get advice about the graphics card, a woman answered the phone and informed me she had no idea or information about graphics card; but she recommended I speak to Sales. I was transferred to sales and they too informed me that they knew nothing about the computer or graphics card. I decided to call B&H Photo, the name sounds deceiving but they really are the best with support.

Good evening! I have a Lenovo Edge 2 that has been babied since purchased. Never abused, dropped, no scratches or dents, it's in fantastic condition still. I purchased the extended warranty, hoping I'd never need it.Last year, it stopped charging properly. The battery power dropped to 0%, and hasn't increased since. The machine will only power on when plugged in to AC power, and will immediately power down when the adapter is disconnected. The charging status indicator LED on the right side of the machine flashes orange in a non-steady, intermittent pattern, and the charging indicator in the taskbar in Windows 10 does the same thing. I returned the machine to Best Buy, they sent it to their "Geek Squad" facility for repairs, and the AC Adaptor and battery were replaced, under warranty. The machine was returned to me, and still doesn't charge.I contacted Lenovo, they advised I would need to return it to their facility for repairs. I put it in the provided box, and dropped it off to FedEx on 6/24/17. It's now been 2 weeks. I contacted Lenovo to inquire about the status of the repair, and was told "The technician found evidence of damage, and the upper case will need to be replaced as well, but damage isn't covered under warranty, so you'll need to cover the cost of the repair." I asked for the price, was told "A technician will email you with the price."

Uninstall Lenovo Energy Managment 8 and install Version 7 Here is the link : http://download.lenovo.com/consumer/mobiles/cagt25ww.exeAfter you install version 7, press Fn+F5 to access wireless setting, and turn your WiFi and Bluetooth onIt solved the problem for me.P.S: I've checked out the keyboard of U410 on net, you don't need to press Fn key. Just press the f7 key [this key must be having a ((laptop)) symbol]. Also you will get a compability issue warning. Just ignore it and run the software.Cheers . Hope it helps.

So I purchased a new T470s in December. After a few months, started having intermitent wi-fi, keyboard, and WWAN issues. Created support ticket was relatively easy. Spent an hour on the phone and got the RMA. Thought to myself that was easy. Next day box showed up to ship laptop back. Told me I'd have it back in 7 days.  Seven days later I go online and see it's listed as "Waiting on Customer". No big deal I thought, I'll call and straighten it out. After spending a total of 6 hours over the next 7 days trying to get in touch with someone at the Depot (an impossible task so I quickly learned), finally spoke a person. He asked me some more questions, and released the laptop from hold. A few days later I see that it is now in parts hold. Ok, I'm still patient, after several more days, we are now a long way off from seven days I originally was told. I'm still optimistic and wait it out. Finally on May 2nd my laptop showed up. It said it had a new keyboard, main board, and wifi module. I was thankful it was fixed, or so I've thought. Jump to two days later, and my wi-fi and WWAN are still intermittent at best. Running continuous pings to google and my wifi AP I have one time out from every four pings, which is enough to throughly anger Google Chrome and dramitcally kills any download speeds. So now I am torn, do I invest another month, and 10 plus hours of phone time for another repair, or do I bite the bullet and buy a new HP and count the Lenovo as a lesson learn...

Hello folks.

After much head scratching I have discovered that the wifi 6300 card by intel featuring tri band connectors is no longer supported by them and broken in windows 10 creators update.

The symptoms are identical on two laptops.  

When attempting to connect to a netowork you are prompted for a password
Once entered it thinks for a while then says could not connect
Now it says there is no wifi networks found. Restarting the pc and they are seen again but only for the same problems to occur.
Intel have confirmed these tri band cards are 'end of life', which is somewhat frustrating as this was the last card made in the tri band configuration, there is no replacement.
I have inserted a wifi 7260 card which only has two antenna in one of the machines and sure enough I get wifi again, however the bluetooth then misbehaves, saying that dell bluetooth module could not load error 10.

This is all very frustrating:

Windows 10 offers the latest software and security updates is fast and much nicer to use than 8 and quicker than 7. Its inevitable that end users will upgrade.
Windows 10 forces updates on users, there is not really a way to stop them
I have two perfectly functional i5 and i7 laptops here which function as modern fast hardware in all other aspects
decisions by large corps means that one of the most important aspects, wireless connectivity is no longer supported and no longer works
There is no other option, no other hardware, so far as I can ascerta... Read more

So I have had issues with multiple wifi cards and Win 7 32 bit. The only ones I've gotten to work are laptop wifi cards, and have had some show stopping issues with certain Dell wifi chipsets. I know that a large number of wifi manufacturers use ralink chipsets which have many known issues with Win 7. I've had an old Linksys USB 54G that has worked up to Vista, then started giving me problems starting with Vista. They eventually sorted out the driver issues, but it's a big no go with Win 7, period.

I'm in the market for a new card, but I'm very reluctant to purchase anything until I have this answered. A good solid wifi PCI card (or USB, but PCI preferred) that has ROCK SOLID driver support in Win 7. Is there an HCL for Win 7 somewhere that I'm missing? I'm not seeing any wifi cards with the Win 7 logo just yet.

A:Terrible wifi support

Yeah, not seeing the HCL anywhere:

Does this model support WIFI?  The on-line manual I found seems to say it does and that the wi-fi switch is on by default, but I can't get it working (message tells me my computer's wireless swtich may be turned off). Just came home with a new modem / install package from Rogers.com.  Modem works great wired...  Getting nowhere fast with attempts to wi-fi.  Gave Rogers a call and they tell me that the problem is that my desktop does not support wireless and that I need a new PC. Starting to wonder if the user manual I found is generic rather than specific to my model....  Can someone confirm whether this model supports WI-FI or not.  Assuming it does, any suggestions as to what my issue might be would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance, Ken

Welcome to the forum!

You'll need a wireless PCI express or standard PCI card.

Lenovo,I got a new X1 Carbon last year - 16GB RAM & i7. Worked great but occasional BSOD. Finally caught an error in a RAM test and the system automatically opened a ticket for repair (Nice!). A week later motherboard sent, nice repair guy comes and replaces it. RAM checks clean but the next day I realise the camera no longer works. Update the ticket. A week later, they send a new camera and the guy comes back to replace the camera. No change - no camera. Update the ticket - this time they send a new motherboard. Nice guy comes back a week later and replaces the motherboard. Camera works again. Yeay! But now it is crazy slow. Turns out the new motherboard is an i5 with 4GB of RAM. Running Windows 10 means this is pretty much unusable. Nice guy says he will order me a new motherboard with the right part number. 2 days later he calls me back. They sent another i5 w/ 4GB of RAM. He will update the ticket. 3 days later, different nice guy comes out with the new part. Checks it out before installing it - i5 w/ 4GB of RAM. I am now waiting for my 6th visit and I have had an unusable laptop for over a month. Seriously, all the people I have been dealing with have been great but why is it so hard to just send the right part? PLEASE - How do we make this all go away so i can get back to enjoying my laptop? Thank youDavid.
