Building an eGPU for Lenovo IdeaPad v570?

Q: Building an eGPU for Lenovo IdeaPad v570?

Hello, I'm fairly new to the forums as well as building computers. I currently use a Lenovo Ideapad V570 and would like to play games that require a better graphics card other than the Intel (R) HD Graphics 3000. The game I would like to try and play is a new game called Overwatch, that can be run by these cards. Reading other posts/forums/articles, I know that I need a graphics card, bplus board, and psu. But I don't know what to buy with a $400~500 budget and whether it'll work with my laptop. I would like to have some suggestions about which affordable components to get for the GPU. For the graphics card, I am honestly okay with anything as long as I can play Overwatch on it (it just looks so good to play haha...) Thank you!

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.)

Since you have not indicated the processor used I can't give you much detail. If you base it only on the specs you can only use 2 sticks or module with a max rating of 1333 Mhz each depending on the processor. As to the other specs details you have to locate the specs of the processor that you are using in the intel site. There you will know whether you can use 1600 Mhz plus other details. One thing for sure is that the max that you can use is 16 GB only if the processor allows it since you can't find a 16 GB module in the market to achieve 32 GB per processor spec.

I'm having a difficult time finding ANY update information relating to Windows 10 for my Lenovo V570. The V580 appears on several "update" and "download" pages on Lenovo's site.....but nothing for the 570. Has my laptop passed some sort of critical "age barrier" that I'm not aware of? This page, for exampe: http://support.lenovo.com/ca/en/downloads/ds014924, is a place where you can download the Power Manager utility for your Lenovo laptop.........UNLESS you own the V570. The 580 is there, but NOT the 570.Did I not get the email announcing that my laptop is over the hill? (Yeah, I know, that page says for Win 7 computers....but Lenovo doesn't know what OS I'm running!!) To make matters worse, THIS page (and many other Lenovo pages) invite me to click a button to "Automatically scan your system and get the latest available updates". Problem is, when I CLICK the Start Scan button...I get an error that says "Your system is not supported for system updates". Again, I must have missed the email. To add insult to injury, there is, apparently no way to contact an actual Lenovo employee to ask the question: WHEN DID YOU STOP ALL SUPPORT FOR THE V570??? Disappoinging, Lenovo.....to say the least.

I have a Lenovo V570. Since yesterday, at startup I error message that says "01011001 keyboard stuck key" briefly flashes on the screen and then the boot sequence continues. Quite often when I am at a log on screen, I get a series of asterisks, apparently indicating spurious entry of some key. It is sometimes difficult to delete all the spurious entries in order to enter the correct info. I opened a spreadsheet and the lower case u kept repeating. What was interesting was that the cursor bounced around on its own and entered u's in various cells. I've also noticed that the finger pad locks up until I press either the escape or control key. I've run a couple virus scans with negative results and also did a system restore to two weeks ago (long before the problem started) but the problem continues. I've also googled the error code but didn't come up with anything. I don't think anything got spilled in it. It was working fine several days ago and sat in my laptop bag next to my desk. It just suddenly started doing this out of the blue. Anyone have any idea what this means and how do I fix it?

A:help finding better charger lenovo v570

It's not a good idea to use a different manufacturer's adapter if you can help it. Why not lengthen the AC cord instead?

Here's a 12 foot AC cord that should fit your adapter:

800-18-39B-BL-0012F CNC Tech | 1175-1505-ND | DigiKey

They are available, and you might even be able to find one locally. I believe that Digi-Key has offices all over the place, so you should be able to order it from them and have it delivered to you.

A:Lenovo v570 shuts down while booting

Well since the hard drive is the only real wear item, that would surely be suspect.    Does the hard drive make any strange sounds?    If you can get into Window and open a command prompt, you can check the S.M.A.R.T. status of the hard drive by typing the command below and pressing enter.     You can also run that command from Safe Mode (command prompt)   wmic diskdrive get status It will return a status of each drive of OK, Bad, Caution or Unknown.    If is returns anything other than OK, then your drive may be bad. You might also try removing and re-seating the RAM modules by following the steps outlined on page 45 of the user manual linked below. Lenovo V470/V570/ B470/B570/B570e User Guide V2.0https://download.lenovo.com/UserFiles/UserGuide/en/User's%20guides%20and%20manuals/B570e/Lenovo%20V4... Note:   If you cannot get Windows to boot at all, and you have not backed up your data, you may want to have it looked at by a computer shop right away, because they can remove the drive, attempt to backup your data, and replace the hard drive if needed.   If the drive is failing, the more you use (or try to repair the system) the greater the chance the drive will fail completely. Best of luck,

Hi! I have a lenovo v570 running windows 7 64bit. This issue appeared 4-5 days ago. Whenever I try to shut down my laptop this things happen:1. the screen that shows you which apps must be cloesd before the system shuts down appears, but the list is blank. there are no programs listed there.2. the usual "shutting down..." screen appears for a while3. screen shuts down, but vents are still on and so are the lights indicating power, wifi and charging.I cannot get the laptop to enter sleep mode either, same thing happens. dark screen but lights and vets still on.When i try to enter safe mode and shut it down using safe mode, it gets stuck on the "shutting down screen".Can anybody help??PS: The only program i installed theese days was a game downloaded from steam so i don't think this is a virus. I read that  this issue was caused for some people by windows not being able to exit properly out of skype but i uninstalled it and the issue persisted.

Dear RazvanBaws
 
Welcome to Lenovo forums
 
I think this is related to a BIOS update, you can try the BIOS update in the link below
 
http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/downloads/detail.page?DocID=DS027341
also follow the instructions below
 
1. Restart computer.
2. Locate the file 44CN43WW.exe that has been downloaded.
3. Double click the 44CN43WW.exe. For Windows 7, you may run it as administrator by left-clicking on the icon and selecting "Run as administrator".
4. Click "Install".
5. When a window prompt, click "OK".
6. Press Enter to start flashing. During the process, you are advised not to turn off the computer.
7. When the update finishes, the computer will automatically reboot for the changes to take effect.
8. Enter to BIOS menu, load default setting-> save and exit.
9. Please reboot the system again.
 
Thanks

A:Processor upgrade for Lenovo V570

hi razvyslim,
 
Welcome to the Forums.
 
Your problem might be similar to this thread.
 
From page 77-78 of the hardware maintenance manual (HMM), the V570 can take up to:
 
Intel I7-2820QM 2.30G 8M 4c D2 PGA processor - FRU#: 102001055Intel I7-2720QM 2.20G 6M 4c D2 PGA processor - FRU#: 102001071Intel I7-2630QM 2.0G 6M 4c D2 PGA processor - FRU#: 102001070Intel I7-2620M 2.7G 4M 2c J1 PGA processor - FRU#: 102001069Intel I5-2540M 2.6G 3M 2c J1 PGA processor - FRU#: 102001068Intel I5-2520M 2.5G 3M 2c J1 PGA processor - FRU#: 102001067Intel I5-2410M 2.3G 3M 2c J1 PGA processor - FRU#: 102001066Intel I3-2310M 2.1G 3M 2c J1 PGA processor - FRU#: 102001065
 
Since you have a dual core CPU, the Intel I7-2620M should be the highest CPU that your motherboard can take.
 
The Quad Core CPUs (I7-2630QM, I7-2720QM, and I7-2820QM) uses a different motherboard (see page 77 of the HMM) so I wouldn't try these CPUs as they're unlikely compatible to your motherboard or worse, may end up frying your board due to the heat that these CPUs are producing.

I think I know my answer, because I bought my laptop as a refurb almost 5 years ago, but . . .

Can someone help me determine if my Lenovo V570 s/n WB02029962 is capable of keeping up with Windows 10 updates? I have Home, so I can't turn off the Creator update (or any other). It now won't install any update requiring restart without also trying to install Creator, so I'm pretty close to hosed.

While I seem to have all the required specs, I note that the Lenovo support items for my machine very pointedly stop at one or another version of Windows 8. Don't mention 10 anywhere. So I'm wondering if anyone can help me with that sorta macro-troubleshoot (can I even keep using this machine) before I get into micro-troubleshooting . . .

Storytime:

I also am unable to run any sort of a backup or system restore point using Windows 10's built-in stuff. I had been, but at some point (maybe after anniversary update) Win10 turned it off for me and never told me. Which was a problems, b/c . . .

I had some other big problems lately, which I thought were unrelated to Win10, and just a fluke caused by some mucking around I did way back here: Dual-Boot after the fact?.

When I did that 2+ years ago, I wound up having to reconstruct my BCD. On Crash Wednesday of February this year, I lost, completely, my boot partition.

Hi, on my laptop the control key is ALWAYS pressed. I can't fix it no matter what. I tried prying off the key with a screwdriver & making sure nothing was jammed in there, there's nothing wrong with the key itself, it looks great on the inside.

Now here's the kicker:

The CTRL key is ALWAYS on, however, if I open the on screen keyboard program, it fixes the problem. Which makes me think it's a windows issue rather than an actual physical keyboard issue.

I'm at the point now where I'm just going to re install windows if I can't fix it

if that doesn't work I'll take it to a repair shop (So expensive..yikes)

So, any suggestions guys?

Any help is extremely appreciated.

P.S - It does this EVEN if an external keyboard is connected.

A:Lenovo v570 laptop - CTRL key always stuck down

The on-screen keyboard would be expected to perform correctly because it's a virtual keyboard in Windows and not mechanical. Despite your hesitation I can't imaging this being a Windows issue. However the problem replicating on an external keyboard is vexing. Is it USB or PS3?

When did you first notice this? How does it manifest itself? A Cntrl command is executed when you type a letter?

Stick around as someone will likely recognize the issue or have an idea that helps.

I also have a Lenovo V570 Laptop and just upgraded to Windows 10, now I have the same issue as you are having, my webcam will not work. It's also Lenovo EasyCamera. When I try updating the driver it says, "Windows found driver software for your device but encountered an error while attempting to install it""Reinstall the drivers for this device. (Code 18)"  I have tried dowloading and saving the drivers from Lenovo and then installing them but get the same error. Hopefully someone out there can find a solution for our problem?? Thanks in advance.

I hear the fan is running when i start the computer for like max 10 seconds. Also i hear the HDD and the DVD rom. I plugged in into the USB a telephone and it started charging it, the usb works.

A:Lenovo V570 bios update crash

I found this procedure on a lenovo forum. Give it a shot and see if it works for you. If not, it is not worth putting money into fixing this laptop.. New ones are pretty cheap and having a new mb installed in this one will cost more than a new laptop.

BTW the spelling errors are from the forum NOT mine.

I have recently purchased a 6th gen x1 carbon. It is the model with a 512gb ssd and 16gb of ram. I am planning a setup for my dorm room that definitely could use some work. There are a lot of peripherals going into this so bear with me. My main question through explaining this is if there is a way to streamline the setup and make it more cost efficient.  I am planning to major buys with this setup, the thinkpad ultradock and an Egpu. Regarding the Egpu, it will be a GTX 1070 mounted in a Razor Core V1. My question is I feel like having both the dock and core is unnecessary. I ideally would like to come into my room and put my X1 straight into the dock, which will be closed and probably upright next to the Egpu. Where I see the problem is that I could just as easily do the setup without the dock and instead plug the Egpu into the TB3 port every time I get home, and simply have the peripherals connected to the Egpu housing. One of the pieces that is making me question the setup is I also intend to have an external SSD that will stay in my room with the Egpu and will store my video games to save space on the internal drive for classes and regular programs. I have been told that the SSD and Egpu cannot share the same port as there would not be enough bandwidth to support the two for how I intend to use it, mostly gaming. So here are a couple questions I would like answered. 1. Should I even bother with the Ultra Dock if I am getting the EGPU2. What would be th... Read more
