I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

Good morning, SF and BSOD teams:

I've been suffering from random BSODs on my Lenovo V570 laptop running Win 7 Home Premium 64-bit on numerous occasions. This issue currently springs up at seemingly-random times, although there might be some correlation with me trying music-related activities (e.g. opening WinAmp, Google Play Music, etc.). The on-screen BSOD information consistently mentions power management driver, hence the reference in this post's title.

Some history with this laptop: I purchased it new in Sept 2011 - no issues
Shortly thereafter, I installed Ubuntu with a full disk wipe, re-format, and re-partition
After frustrations with Linux, I reinstalled Win 7 with a freshly-purchased retail full license (e.g. not the OEM recovery disk)
Note: it was after this event that the BSODs started to occur
I've since reinstalled Linux and Win 7 at least one or two times, each time with a full disk wipe/format/re-partition and seemingly successful installation.

One additional note: during each of the Win 7 installs, it seems as though virtually none of the expected drivers are available. I have to manually install ethernet, wi-fi, graphics, etc. before the thing starts behaving as expected. Again, this was all using the legitimate retail full Win 7 install disk and drivers directly from Lenovo's support site.

In any event, I would greatly appreciate any help on this issue.

Thanks!
-Danny

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.

My brother's computer: Lenovo v570 laptop running Windows 7, 64-bit Intel Core i5 processor, 750 GB hard drive, 6 GBs of RAM, integrated graphics

I'm trying to help my brother fix his laptop, but it's nearly impossible. I'm fairly well-versed in this type of black magic, but this was so unyielding that I'm forced to post here.
"The other night I tried starting my laptop, and it asked me if I wanted to go into startup repair or boot normally, which I thought was strange, and I just chose to start normally, and it BSOD'd before the time the login screen would usually come up. I figured there might be a potential issues because I had postponed restarting my computer a couple of days after Windows updates were done. I usually keep my computer clean, protected by Kaspersky and Malwarebytes, etc. so I figured that the update would be the most likely culprit.
I tried to do a system repair off the recovery hard drive, and it didn't work. Then I tried launching into safemode, still BSOD'd; the "last known good configuration" wouldn't boot either. I tried multiple system restore points, and they gave various errors. None worked, however.

Battery Issue - Lenovo V570 (Laptop) - Battery Model L09S6Y02

First off I for the most part do not use the battery. It is normally detached from the laptop. I only attach it to periodically charge it and test prior existing charges' performance.

O.K. here is the problem. I attach battery attachment, computer does not make it to the window screen more often than not. When it does, it freezes at the please wait loading screen.

I rarely use the battery at all, but I want all my equipment up and functional. It's life should still be good for I periodically recharge it. I think since I've had the laptop I've only recharged it a total of 6 or 7 times and that's been a year or so.

I, for the moment at least have the battery working power adapter attached. What did I do? I uninstalled Avast (freeware version) ?

I learned from prior experience that running two of any system utility software can cause problems, but it normally restricts itself to what it is protecting. Then I remembered: "If you remove the possible whatever is left however in probable must be the truth."

Next phase of testing is test the battery on it's own.

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: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.
 
 
Regards

My Lenovo v570 just started to shut down while in use and now during the later stages of reboot.   It is a pc about 5 yrs old  I have removed battery and reinstalled with no changet in results  Any ideas  

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,

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.

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:

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.

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 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. Like, there was a partition, but it was utterly toast. I found my copious notes, although I was running windows 7 at the time, and tried to reconstruct th... Read more

 I have a V570 Lenovo laptop on which I just installed Windows 10. After the install, I found that my camera no longer works -- it's the Lenovo Easy Cam.
 
I tried driver updates. Apparently the drivers were downloaded but failed to install. I can't figure out HOW to get them to install. I tried the device manager. I also took a look with Lenovo Solutions. It says the camera is disabled, but it doesn't tell me how to re-enable it.
 
I'm at a loss. How can I get my camera to work with Windows 10?
 
Thanks.

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.

Hello all,

About a week ago my Lenovo v570 began acting up. Long story short, as a last resort (last meaning I was pricing replacement hard drives), I wiped my entire hard drive, hidden partitions and all. I have spent countless hours working to get this thing back in working order and I may, after 30+ hours, be on the right track.

After doing a lot of research and reading a lot of threads, this is where I'm at:

As I mentioned, I completely wiped the hard drive, I created a 100GB partition to install Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit (which is the same OS that was pre-loaded) and have left the other 650GB unallocated for now. I formatted the new partition and began to install Windows, which, after all the trouble I've gone through, even getting to this point was a huge step.

Well, as the title suggests, the install hangs at 0% at step 1 of the installation process. I have tried both DVDs as well as using a flash drive (that is already formatted to NTFS) which I used the Windows 7 Download Tool to create. I have gone to the BIOS and mixed and matched nearly every plausible option, without luck. I disabled USB legacy at times, switched from ACHI to Compatibility, disabled the wireless option via BIOS, unplugged all USB devices (unless using the USB install method) and everything else I could possibly think of.

Even before I was forced to completely wipe the hard drive and was trying to salvage my information, I did an install which made it further along (before ultimately gett... Read more

Enter BIOS setup to see if there are any listings to indicate you have an EFI mobo. If so, you'll need to follow special steps to reinstall: UEFI (Unified Extensible Firmware Interface) - Install Windows 7 with - Windows 7 Forums

If not we need to first confirm the installer. Where did you get Win7? Is this a known-good DVD which has installed before? If not confirm the installer ISO or download another from the official download link given in these steps to get a perfect Clean Reinstall Windows 7 Factory OEM.

If a confirmed ISO DVD burned with MS tool or ImgBurn at 4x speed fails, next write to flash stick using MS tool or Universal USB Installer with Win7 in dropdown menu. Boot using one-time BIOS Boot menu key under USB, Removable or HD's.

If it fails, unplug the DVD drive as well as all other HD's and peripherals to try again.

Next check the Lenovo Support Downloads webpage for your model for newer BIOS version update. Read the download info or the Read Me file in download to see if it might apply. If not, reset BIOS to defaults: Clear CMOS - 3 Ways to Clear the CMOS - Reset BIOS. While in BIOS setup set SATA controller to AHCI to try install, then IDE mode if it fails.

Next test your RAM and HD from these troubleshooting steps.

Report back results for more steps, including possible installing in another machine to moved HD: SysPrep to move HD to another computer

A while ago I posted the possibility of upgrgrading my 6GB Lenovo V570 to 16GB.  It seemed as if it would be ok, although contrary to what Lenovo stated, but I chickened out.  Instead I've been living with my unit opearting very slowly and having the desktop manager and shockwave flash frequently fail.  It's not wonderful dealing with this and I have been looking for answers.  I thought about adding another couple of GB and along the way found suggestions on updating the drivers and bios.  Anyone savvy enough to advise on what drivers being updated would improve and how to accomplish this?  Also how is the bios updated wihtout screwing everything up?  I'm also thinking of doing a factory resore after backing up all the info on the unit.  Woudl a fresh start help or should I just  save my money and buy a new windows 10 computer?  Thanks!

Hi guys, I am trying to install the old Intel HD Graphics driver 15.40.13.4331 because the constant brightness of the screen is killing my eyes. It's the last possible solution there is, I've installed patches, done everything I can possibly think of. My X1 is brand new and the brightness issue popped up as soon as I updated it for the first time.  Windows won't let me install the older version of the driver. Please, lots of karma and positive thoughts your way if you can help me out on this. have tried phoning into the help line and they really don't give the impression they care, one of the call centre respondees said to me "Well, if your screen is working what's the problem?".

Hi, I have a Yoga 3 1470 (80JH) with an onboard Intel Graphics 5500 GPU (Broadwell GT2). I recently completed a clean Win10 install (it shipped with 8.1) and since the upgrade the GPU utilisation (3D) will randomly hit 95-100%, this has a major impact on performance and the utilisation does not drop until the machine is reloaded. The only workaround I've found is to run the basic microsoft display driver, but obviously this is has very limited capability so is not a long term option. - Tried numerous drivers, both OEM & generic Intel. (it is currently back on latest OEM driver .4835)- Upgraded BIOS- Tweaked power settings- Tweaked Intel Control Panel Settings - Increased the dedicated video memory to 512MB- Disabled Background Apps - Ran Diagnostics Checks Using microsoft process monitor, during the high utilisation events there are no processes excessivly loading up the GPU so I am a little lost. I'm at the point where I think either the Yoga 3 80JH model has compatibility issues with Win10 but came up with nothing when looking for similar issues on the web, or....potentially I have a hardare probleim here (although it passes Lenovo diagnostics checks?). Any help/suggestions is greatly appreciated..

Hello,  I have the Lenovo y40 with the intel i7-4510 and wthe AMD Radeon R9 M275 graphics card. About 1 month ago, I was in the middle of a game when my computer just shut down and gave me a blue screen. Since then, I have been unable to run my computer with the graphics driver enabled. At first, I thought it may be a driver issue and have tried both the Lenovo drivers from their page (which seemed a bit outdated) as well as the AMD drivers from the website, neither of which have worked.  Furthermore, I did do a fresh install today in hopes that would fix it, however, it did not. I get the same thing, the moment it recognizes that the AMD card is working I get a BSOD.  Some of the error codes that I have gotten with the BSODs are as follow: THREAD_STUCK_IN_DEVICE_DRIVER, BAD_POOL_HEADER, KERNAL_SECURITY_CHECK_FAILURE, SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION, BAD_POOL_CALLER, VIDEO_TDR_FAILURE, and KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED (NTFS.sys).

I am trying to install the driver for my ATI HD 5730. I downloaded the driver from the Lenovo support page, installed it, and it installed sucessfully. I clicked "view log", all successful;I went to the device manager, it recognized the HD 5730 as well as the Intel Graphic. CCC is in the context manual of the desktop, but it doesn't open. However, the resolution of the screen remains at 1024 x 768. When I restart the computer, it says something along the line of "No ATI graphics driver is installed, or the ATI driver is not functioning." I tried to uninstall it, from program files, then cleaned the rest with Driver Sweeper, and then cleaned registry with Glary Uitility. Reinstalled, and same result. I even tried to uninstall all display drivers, and let Windows find the "new" hardware. Windows recognized and install the driver for the Intel Graphic, but failed to install anything for the 5730. I searched the web and I can't seem to find a solution that works. Any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance.

I have been using this y410p to play games for almost three years now, and a small set of problems has slowly started to build.  As of now, most of my games will crash within 5-10 minutes of starting, commonly accompanied by the error "Display driver has stopped responding and recovered". Most of the time, the game will just freeze with the audio continuing and I am able to close it. Sometimes however, I get much more severe crashes, where the sound over 5 seconds becomes extremely distorted, and my mouse movement becomes increasingly laggy until the whole thing just freezes, with a monotone buzzing sound coming from the speakers.  I have noticed that the display driver crashes generally occur when my disk randomly spiked to 100%. Even a single second of it can cause my whole computer to crash. As of now, I can't play games that my computer has easily been able to run before. I've tried using IdeaFan to keep temperatures down, but I don't think it's temperatures causing it, seeing as I've seen it happen multiple times when the temperature is only around 50. If any of you have an idea of what could be causing this, please respond.  Also of note, I am running Windows 10, which I have heard can be problematic for the y410p. Could that be causing the issue?
