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.)

Hello everyone!I have really big issues with my Lenovo G505s laptop.(A8-4500M, 4GB ram, 7640G+8570M, windows 7 professional)I have around 20-25 FPS in every game when my charger is plugged in.When I plug it out, I get around 80-90 FPS boost.I did research in a lot of forum, and for some people helped that they updated the BIOS. I searched for BIOS update,I found it(v3.0), but for Windows 8 & 8.1.Is it compatible with Windows 7?Can I make any damage in my laptop if I install that? Please HELP!

Hi there. I've posted a couple of times before about my G505s not starting. I eventually managed to get it started and have used it for the last two weeks. When I've finished I've been using the sleep mode and it's started everytime from sleep. It failed again after using shutdown and so I decided to remove and clean the fan and re-apply the thermal paste as someone had suggested. I've done that and am now back to square one as it won't now start. I'd appreciate any suggestions to try to sort out this problem. Kind regards David

Well here we are again. I've done everything suggested as possible solutions for the laptop problem of not restarting after shutdown. I've cleaned the fan, re-applied thermal paste and run all the tests that are available on the Lenovo Solution Centre. I've checked the temperatures and they are around the 35/39 mark. It's run for several days with just putting it into sleep mode. Finally took the plunge last night and went to shutdown, and, yes, you've guessed it won't start again. Why oh why should this happen?????? I'm now at the point of giving up but I thought I'd post this one more time to see if anyone has any more idea's. Really grateful for ANY response. Kind regards David

Guys, I've had my Lenovo G505s for pretty much 2 years now. I have a poor battery performace. Recently my charger malfunctions. It won't work till i have placed it at an agle of the charging port, meanwhile if i use another charger from a friend, it works very fine without struggle. Initally, i thought it was my charging port but I'm sure that it's not now. Also, recently my friend swapped his battery for mine (he had 50% charge on his battery), as soon as he put it into my laptop, he saw that it was around 28%. A few minutes after that, the battery died. *One Key Optimizer tells me my battery is weak and needs replacement. Battery capacity is at 42%. My question now is :1. Do i just need a new battery and a charger?? OR2. Could it be from my motherboard? (I'm running the AMD A10 with Radeon gpu) I'd really appreciate suggestions from you guys.  Thanks.

my g505s with a10 has serious heating issues even after bios update. whenever i play games, after a while the gpu temperatures shoot up to 85-90 degrees and the game starts stuttering immensely. the fan runs painfully slow. only the lenovo energy management software can control the fan by the dust removal feature. this works for only about a minute. i have tried all fan control softwares but they don't even detect my fan. msi afterburner, speedfan, even amd overdrive can't detect the fan and i'm really dying now. i would please appreciate any help on this as soon as possible.

A:lenovo g505s fan problem

Hi Mngabriel,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community!
 
I?m sorry to hear that your G505s Laptop?s temperature is increasing while playing game. There is no other option to increase the FAN speed, the only way to make the FAN run in good speed is by switching the power plan to ?High Performance? mode and then you can choose fan control modes in your Windows Power Plan settings. Select the power icon in the notification area and click "More power options." Click "Change plan settings," then "Change advanced power settings." In the ?Processor power management? submenu, you will find the "System cooling policy" option, if your laptop is equipped with heat sensors. Selecting "Active" runs your fan more frequently, at lower temperatures; "Passive" leaves the fan off until the laptop reaches a higher temperature. Below is the link for the same:
 

How to change Power Plan Advanced Settings?

Do post us back for further queries.
 
Best Regards

Hidy ho all,

I have a Lenovo G505s I bought in august. Up to this point, its been a great machine. This morning (11/20/2014) I installed some updates from windows update. around 4:30 PM today, I rebooted the machine, because I had an hour break in between classes. During that reboot it tried to install those updates, and it said it failed. After the failure it said it was reverting back to the prior state before the updates were installed.

It then rebooted again. It got to the Lenovo splash screen, and some little white text on the bottom of the screen has said for the past half hour "Updating your system (5%)" with the windows 8 little circle thing spinning around just above it.

I did try restarting it by holding down the power button, but it came right back to this screen.

Google has turned up nothing yet. Has anyone else had this issue? If so, have they (you) been able to fix it?
 

A:Lenovo G505s not booting

I think the quickest way around this issue is to let the OS try to install the updates it might take a while to do so(which is a pain) but I would wait because you don't want to mess up your system you might loose more than the time you will wait

Hello guys. I got a Lenovo g505s for almost 1 year. In the first 2 months the processor was stable, 1.9 GHZ in idle and 2.3 or even 2.8 in games. But now I got a big problem. While the laptop is in idle, it stays somewhere at 2.3, and it never reaches 2.8 GHZ. While playing games, it dropes to 1.77GHZ or even lower somewhere at 0.88GHZ. I checked for dust, there is no dost. The thermal paste is new. It is set to High Performance. The bios is updated to 3.00 and all the drivers are up to date. What can I do to get my frequency back like it was when I bought it? Please answer, I tried everything, reinstalling windows, Windows Updates...

UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME

I tried the "Last Known Good Configuration" it doesnt help, i did a full disk check but nothing works for me. So my question is: Is the HDD damaged, or are the sectors bad? Should i replace the HDD or is there a solution for my problem?
Thank you for your answers in advance,

The error sure sounds like a hard drive failure but in a laptop is good to make sure the drive did not become loose and unplugged.

Hello! I've owned my G505s since August 2014 and it has served faithfully as my school laptop. I do not have any money for a new laptop and I've looked at endless posts and articles, so I'm at my wit's end here. It all started last night, when my hard drive just failed to boot. It told me there was no OS installed, despite Windows 8.1 being installed. I rebooted a couple times and the same message popped up and I checked the BIOS settings. They were all correct. I assumed that my HDD became corrupted or something occurred, so I found a Windows 8 ISO from Microsoft's website and started installing tonight, since I knew the BIOS stored the key and would auto-input. That part was successful. The part that's killing me here, though, is the constant shutdowns now. It started ever since I had to reinstall. At first I just put Windows 10 Tech Preview on it to quickly get some work done since I had the install USB with me, but it shut down randomly there too. Now, during the install of the Windows 8.1 OS, it shuts down at random times and corrupts the installation, forcing me to start over and observe the same shutdown issue all over again. I do not have money to ship it and I'm losing my mind here. I thought Lenovo was good, but I'm seeing others with the same exact problem, and I'm several months away from having enough money for even a cheapo laptop. Can anyone help?Keep in mind that I can't even get past a Windows 8 install and booting a Live USB of Linux is a no-g... Read more

A:Lenovo G505s Randomly Shutting Down

hi Chripallo,
 
Welcome to the Forums.
 
It could just be a coincidence but It's possible that there's a hardware part that's failing inside the machine (e.g., Memory, Overheating GPU) which causes the shutdown issues.
 
Things that you can try:
1. Re-seat the RAM and HDD and try reinstalling Windows.
2. If you have two RAM sticks (e.g., 2x4GB), remove one stick and observe if you can now install Windows.
3. (Optional) Check this article on how to create a bootable USB diagnostics to test the RAM/HDD.
    - Sample image
 
Note:
You will need to set the following options in the BIOS to boot from a  USB
Security Tab:
Secure Boot = Disabled
Exit Tab:
OS Optimized Defaults = Other OS.
Boot Tab:
UEFI = Disabled
Boot Mode = Legacy
 
If the problem remains and you're still not able to install Windows after doing the above steps then I recommend you contact lenovo for warranty service.

Hi NeddyNelson , 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
 
You can try to reset the BIOS default and check if BIOS will detect the harddrive. 
It may be the the harddrive itself is bad , so if you have another harddrive to test it with just to islate if BIOS would detect another harddrive. 
 
Hope you manage to abck up your data , you may slave the harddrive in an enclosure and test it on another pc to diagnose its integrity .

A:Lenovo G505s - question about upgrading RAM memory

Hi subhamzzz , 
 
Welcome to the Lenovo Community Forums.
 
Genral specifications for G505s :
- DDR3 / DDR3L * 2 SODIMM, 1600 MHz.- Dual channel for AMD Richland- Upgradeable to 32 GB Memory with two 16 GB SODIMMs
 
Lenovo recommend RAM listed on the hardware manual (item 16 page 83-84).
Regarding third party reseller options , best to check with specific manufacturer Corsair to match advantages of the higher priced RAM from a cheaper value of their product.
 
This may include heat spreaders , backward compatibility and auto detect speed technology offered in vengeance.
 
Sticking with OEM recommendation is still the best option but do not limit users to their choice as long as those choice works for them. 
 
Hope this help answer your query.

Always a good idea to look at your service manual / maintenance manual for this information before you order parts...Go to the support tab on this site, enter in your specifics then select your computer from the list. One your support page loads, at the bottom you will find a link to documents, choose it and read up on your service manual. It has quite a bit of good information about updating or upgrading parts, including a white list of acceptable replacements and upgrade paths.Good luck.CB

If you're not getting any artifacts, that error could be a false positive. To verify, can you run OCCT and run a GPU Stress Test and Video Memory Test.

Hi good people,

So, I'm on here like thousands of others with intermittent wifi issues. I upgraded from 8.1 to 10 yesterday and everything works very well except for losing my wifi connection every 30 minutes to an hour.

My wireless adapter is a Broadcom 802.11n
the driver I'm using is Broadcom version 6.30.223.256

I've updated the drivers and the same loss of wifi happens. I've rolled back the drivers and the same loss of wifi happens. I've even tried a driver directly from the lenovo site that is a Cybertan Liteon driver that is the latest version for windows 8.1.

I've also unchecked the box in the power management page. Then rebooted.

I've also used all the commands, in the command prompt admin that start with 'netsh'. Then rebooted. The same thing still happens.

So, I'm up for new suggestions including compatible drivers from different manufacturers.

I'm really hoping there's a Z585 user on here that has solved this issue. According to the Lenovo web site this particular laptop has the latest drivers on the site and none of them are working so far.

A:Lenovo Z585 losing wifi after driver update, driver rollbacks, 'fixes'

First, is your laptop supported for windows 10 on lenovo website.....meaning are there drivers and software packages for it? Have you tried downloading the 8.1 driver for it and then running it in compatibility mode?

Hi, and thanks in advance...

Much of this is a repeat to other threads, until the graphic driver problem at the end...

(I also have an Ubuntu partition.)

I'd left my mp3 player plugged in overnight + an Asus Xonar DAC in a usb hub, when Windows wanted to do an update and conflict over drivers ensued. Strange, because I've selected for notification before updating. Also, have not been successful installing any new updates since the end of May. Was seemingly a common problem, I checked into it, too busy/lazy to pursue and succeed. This part is confusing...?

Woke up to blasting fans and unplugged everything peripheral. First, tried setting back to restore points prior to that night - twice. Could restart in Safe Mode and with networking. Then, could restart normally - but, shutdowns after 20 minutes or so.

Got crash logs, saw driver conflicts (not found) - saved.

Came here, read threads, did restart at Last Known Good Configuration. Restart - Nvidia Geforce driver not found. Went to Asus site, downloaded and installed driver (not lastest version, but last approved version and not much later than one that was installed).

It then went into a system cycled start/restart/etc. attempting to find driver, fix itself - forced to do shutdown to stop it.

Restarted this morning in Safe Mode, followed your instructions for posting. It's been running in safe mode for about 20 minutes now.

Hi,Since a few months I have a lenovo G595s with Windows 8 installed, the thing is I don't know much over computers, but last tuesday I was just working and my laptop was next to me without any task, and somehow when I was going to reuse the computer I wasn't able because the screen where all the apps are was frozen, so I tried with CTR ALT DELETE nothing happened, then I just turn it off, and since it only goes on with the Lenovo logo, in the under part says or appears Preparing automatic repair and like 1 min later it goes completely in black without turning off.I tried el the F keys at the beggining of the start, in the middle, with a windows CD as well, but I just don't get access to the BIOS or any other configuration, only black screen, doesn't matter how long I leave it on.If somebody could help me to find out what is happening with the computer.Thank you a lot

A:Lenovo G505s windows 8, preparing automatic repair then black screen

hi Dlskmalpik,
 
Welcome to the Lenovo Forums.
 
Automatic Repair usually kicks in if there's a problem loading up the files that's required to start Windows. If the repair was interrupted and the screen just goes into a black screen then there's most likely a hardware component that's malfunctioning.
 
To check, try to:
1.Boot into the BIOS by pressing the OneKey Recovery button
  - Link to picture
 
If successful, set the following settings in the BIOS:
 
Security Tab:
Secure Boot = Disabled
 
Boot Tab:
UEFI = Disabled or Legacy
Boot Mode = Legacy
Boot Priority = Legacy First
 
Exit Tab
OS Optimized Defaults = Other OS or Disabled
 
When done, press F10 (or Fn+10) to save and exit and try to boot from your Windows CD (i'm assumming this is a Windows 8 disc).
 
2. If you're successful in booting from the Windows 8 Disc, see Step 1 to Step 2 of this guide on how to proceed in fixing the issue.
 
3. If the problem remains, consider re-instaling Windows by pressing the OneKey Recovery button and choose System Recovery
  - Link to picture
 
In an event that the recovery fails, I recommend you contact lenovo and report the issue as you may need to send the unit for service..
 
 
Regards

A:lenovo G505s stuck in a 'diagnosing your pc' then 'preparing automatic repair' loop

Hi heidihamed  , 
 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums . 
 
On a Windows boot loop , it would be an advantage if it can proceed on windows advance options for repair options. 
Avoid any option for factory recovery since those would delete your files.
 
Initially turn off your pc and remove the battery and charger . 
Press and hold down the power button for 15 seconds and release to drain remaining current. 
Put back the battery and charger and use the Novo key (item5 page 4) to turn it on . 
Choose  BIOS setup and press F9 for loading defaults , F10 to save and exit  
How was it?
 
If the advance options showed up then we can proceed with troubleshoot and system restore that would allow you to just go back to a previous date before the problem with you keeping your files. 
 
You may also create a repair image to help fix it from a different pc with same WIndows version. 
 
 
Final option should be One key recovery  (page27) but this would delete your files so usually best that you try backing your files via harddrive enclosure and attach the harddrive on a different pc . 
Else booting to a rescue media can help with back ups too. 
 
 
Update us how things would go. 
 
 
Regards

Recently Windows updated my Intel HD Graphics 630 driver. A few days later the same driver was released on Dell's driver support page.
Is there any correlation between Windows Update and Dell's drivers? Who does update the drivers Microsoft themselves or Dell needs to release the driver to Microsoft?
As this is the first time when Windows updated the driver is this how the Intel HD Graphics drivers are to be kept up-to-date via Windows Update?

A:Windows Update vs Dell Update - Intel HD Graphics 530/630 Driver

ZINGAM,
Referring to the Intel HD graphics driver.
Windows gets code from Intel for the driver and they will implement it in the OS. Dell also gets code from Intel and will release it. Also, Intel will post the driver on their site to download. You can uninstall the Microsoft driver if you choose and install the Dell update driver.

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?". First time buyer of a Lenovo product - not impressed thus far.

Recently I've been using Intel Driver update utility to keep my drivers in check with what's up to date, but for a while now I've noticed I can't get this spicific one.  It's been bugging me for a while and I'd like to get it updated so this notification will go away.  Where might I go about getting said driver?  I've already looked in the drivers area of the XC603G on the main site.  You're my last hope, Fourms.

A:Graphics Driver 15.33.43.4425? Intel Driver Update...

To install Intel generci VGA drivers, you need to uninstall first the Acer/Intel drivers or you will be not able to do it.but...if you are under windows 10, keep in mind that it will try to re-install the Acer/Intel drivers over the generic drivers.

Hi, I have also posted this in Lenovo's forum, but perhaps someone here have a solution as well. Recently my HDD crashed, so I plugged in a new HDD with a fresh Windows 7 Professional 64bit. 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.
