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.)

Hello everyone, Since about five days ago, everytime I turn on my laptop, it starts normally. It goes into the black-background lenovo startup with a white loading symbol. Then, after maybe 5 rotations of the dots in the loading symbol, it freezes. It does not progress into starting up. At this point, I usually turn off my laptop by holding the power button. If I don't turn it off myself, it turns off automatically a few minutes later.  Every 2 or 3 times I turn on my computer, instead of the loading symbol, it turns into a "Preparing Automatic Repair" mode. I have seen the loading symbol for this mode but then it disappears and nothing happens and it turns off automatically after ten minutes or so. I've seen the same solution that help others with the same problem which is to take out the DVD from the laptop. I did this and my problem has not changed.  edit: g500 to g505

For the past few months, my Lenovo G505 computer (running windows 8.1) has been telling me that its wifi connection is "limited". It used to work well on the wifi (same router) and I have restarted the router several times, but to no prevail. The wifi problem is only for my two private wifi connections, and the computer can work fine on any other wifi. I do not know how to fix this, or where to begin, and would prefer not changing my computer's os to something lower such as windows 8. Please comment if you know how I should fix this.

i bought this Lenovo G505 about a year and a half ago and for the most part i love it, it does everything i need it to do within reason. but i have had one nagging problem with it the whole time and up until today i blamed it on different size sticks and memory speeds, but today I bought brand new corsair select DDR3L 1600mhz memory 2x8gb (16gb). sadly the problem still exists.it seems that no matter what stick of ram is in the second slot, that while the bios recognizes the total, and windows claims to recognize the total, the second stick is not USABLE memory. please view the photo to see exactly what i am referring to. I have tried a multitude of different operating systems (win 7,8,8.1,10, countless linux distros) all give me the same problem. I would REALLY like to know how to fix this problem as currently having 16gb of memory and only 7.45 usable is heartbreaking...

Hi  3razar3,Can you check if windows is using the half of the memory as hardware reserve? To check this open up Resource Monitor from Taskmanager. If you see that your missing memory is being reserved  for hardware do the following steps. Open msconfig - > click on Boot - > Advanced options - > untick maximum memory, restart the system. Hope this helps. Cheers,

I have three Lenovo g505 laptops, all running Windows 8.1 (originally factory loaded with Windows 8.0). One for me, one for my son and one for my daughter. My son's HDD crashed unexpectedly.

Hi david28116,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
Please set these parameters inside BIOS
 
Exit Tab:
OS Optimized Defaults = Win7 OS or Other OS
 
When finished, hit Load default settings (just right above it) then set these additional settings:
 
Security Tab:
Secure Boot = Disabled
 
Boot Tab:
Boot Mode = Legacy
Boot Priority = Legacy First
USB Boot = Enabled
 
Now Press F10 to save and exit
 
Now Insert your USB, Turn the computer OFF.
Turn it back on and start tapping F12
You should now have your USB as an option.
 
Hope this helps
Cheers!

Hi Arm-1969,  
           
Welcome to the Forums  
 
As per the query we understood that you are facing issue the DVD not working in your Lenovo G505 laptop.
 
Check with bootable DVD, does the DVD is detected in BIOS?
 
To resolve this issue, remove the affected filter drivers.
 
To do this, click on Start,  type regedit in the search box, then click on regedit in the Programs list.
 
If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, key in your password or click continue.
 
Locate, and then click the following registry subkey: hkey_local_machine\system\currentcontrolset\control\class\{4d36e965-e325-11ce-bfc1-08002be10318}
 
Note that there could be several instances of the registry subkey that is mentioned in the above step so make sure that you are in the appropriate registry subkey before modifying the upperfilters and the lowerfilters values.
 
To verify that you are in the appropriate registry subkey, make sure that the default data value is

Hi there, My Lenovo G505 is not booting anymore. I had wanted to scan my laptop with Kaspersky Rescue CD, and therefore, I wanted the laptop to boot from the CD. So, I searched for how to boot the laptop from CD, and I followed the solution provided in this thread by Solid_Cruver: https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Lenovo-P-Y-and-Z-series/Lenovo-Z500-BIOS-legacy-support/m-p/1124815/hig... As written in that post, I first booted to BIOS Setup, then under Exit, I changed the "OS Optimized Defaults" to "Other OS". I then hit F9 to load defaults. Then, under BIOS, I changed to Legacy boot and Legacy first... both options that are shown one below the other. After that I saved the BIOS setup and exited. After that when the laptop boots, it just keeps showing Lenovo on the screen, and under that the dotted circle keeps on spinning, and nothing else happens. After waiting for a while, I turned power off by pressing the power off button for a while. Then, I pressed the Nova button, but no display comes up, but the light for power remains on. Again, nothing happened there too. Just a black screen, even no blinking cursor, or any kind of display. After waiting a while, I pressed the power button, and laptop powered off. How do I get to the Nova screen, or get the computer to boot? Or, how to just set the BIOS setup again to what it was before? This isn't my laptop, but of my friend, and I don't want it to go bad :/.

A:Lenovo G505 unable to boot

OK, I tried again after power off on the Lenovo screen. I then pressed the Nova screen, and this time, the display was there (phew), and I got the options for the Nova screen. I went into BIOS, and I changed the options for "OS Optimized Defaults" to "Win8 64-bit", and in BIOS, changed to UEFI. I saved the settings, and exited. But still, the computer is not able to boot. It again shows the screen with Lenovo written and the dotted circle keeps spinning. What else do I have to do to get the laptop to boot normally from the OS? Under the BIOS settings, I noted that Secure Boot was Enabled, but the Secure Boot Status was Disabled. The laptop isnt booting because of this setting? How do I get the Secure Boot Status to Enabled, and how do I get the computer to boot normally from the OS on the HDD?

I am becoming increasingly frustrated with my Lenovo G505. It has failed to connect to wireless since I purchased it. When in warranty it was sent away on a couple of occasions for 'repair'. However it continues to show connected, but then drops to limited every minute or so. Its been locked away for the last few months due the above frustrations, but wanting to work from home I thought I'd give it one more try. I have browsed a number of topics,but have not had much success. Is anyone able to point me in the direction of a possible known fix? Hoping Lenovo can restore my faith.

1. Boot into the BIOS and set the following options (if applicable):
 
Security Tab:
Secure Boot = Disabled
 
Exit Tab:
OS Optimized Defaults = Other OS / Disabled
 
2. When done, press Fn+F10 to save and exti and observe.

My W10 64bit Dell desktop installed KB3194798 on 10/12/2016 using Windows Update (WU) so now it is 1607 1493.321.
Today I tried WU to update my Lenovo G505 W10 laptop and I think it might have been KB3194798 that has killed my laptop, but I cannot even get the laptop to go past the black screen to the Lenovo display when trying to boot.
Here's the history...
Today I pushed the power button to turn it on and found that my wife had left it on and over the many hours it had gone into (I assume) a powersaving mode that made me think it needed to boot.
The screen showed that WU was up and some KB was at 94%. I left it alone and a few minutes later it told me the install was ready to go. So I clicked to let it WU do the install. The install failed saying some files were missing but it let me click on "retry".
I think it failed a 2nd time. The 3rd time it appeared to be installing OK, and I went to work for a few hours. On my return it showed that the laptop required a restart to complete the WU installs - that's pretty normal after letting WU do an install of a "cumulative", I think. So I clicked to restart and walked away. When I returned hours later, the laptop was still displaying the Lenovo boot-time logo and the spinner was spinning. I powered down the laptop by holding down the power button. Now the laptop will not even display the Lenovo boot-time logo. The little power LED is lit.

Some forum members have reported a variety of Wifi issues with their G505 laptops. Their reports range from showing "Connection is limited", to Wifi connections dropping repeatedly, to being unable to make a Wifi connection at all. I combined multiple threads in order to assist forum members with troubleshooting solutions.
 
If your G505 was upgraded to Windows 8.0 or 8.1 and then lost connectivity, or you recently purchased a G505 running Windows 8.0 or 8.1 and are unable to connect, try following the instructions posted by Vikramsbox to restore the connection through the Lenovo Communications Utility.
 
For non-Windows 8.0 or 8.1 users, start troubleshooting with the basics:

The most recent WLAN, BIOS, and Power Management drivers from Lenovo can be downloaded here: http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/products/laptops-and-netbooks/lenovo-g-series-laptops/lenovo-g505-no...
It is also good practice to verify your Wifi is activated by following the instructions from Neokenchi.
Check Power Management settings to ensure your laptop isn't turning off the Wifi as noted by Dannyk1.
Check to see that Airplane Mode is set to OFF by following the instructions provided by Shiv_K.

Hi. I fix laptops for a living and a customer came to me recently with a G505 that does nothing. Switching it on, the display comes on, but that consists of a non-blinking cursor at the top left of the screen and nothing else. None of the function keys does anything. The cd drive clicks on start up, the indicator lights work fine and the hard drive works (it spins and is not damaged, I took it out and tested it) but there is no sign that anything is being read from it. The fan works, the CPU heats up but - nothing happens! It has Windows 8 installed and uses UEFI. This laptop was manufactured in 2014, it's hardly been used and is in perfect condition.  Has anyone ever seen this issue, I haven't managed to find anything anywhere about it. Any advice would be most welcome as I have run out of ideas! Thanks.

Hi, I'm having extremely bad problems. I bought this laptop especially for the dedicated GPU and I play games such as Sims 3, Sims 4 and GTA V and even though they're set to "high performance" in AMD, it still uses the integrated GPU. Apparently it has something to do with OpenGL. If they won't let the GPU be used with OpenGL, then what's the point in there being the GPU? A lot of games use OpenGL..... Is there a way to force my computer to use the dedicated GPU? There's no fixed option in BIOS. Only UMA or Switchable. I've tried UMA and that disables the dedicated GPU completely. It disappears from device manager. Thanks.

However, I noticed that the graphics quality in games has dropped considerably, going from 20 to 30 fps in the same game. I do not know what might have happened, since I installed all Lenovo-supplied drivers, updated Windows 10 to Anniversary Update, and disabled the Xbox DVR. I already rode the Intel driver update system and also tried the latest version, still in beta. All tested drivers gave the same result, even after the full reinstallation. The current driver version is: Intel Corporation 20.19.15.4501Processor: i5 5200U 2.2GHz 2.19GHzMemory: 8GBSystem: Windows 10 64-bit In addition, the system had a considerable improvement in performance, connecting in a matter of seconds and initiating programs with agility and stability. Although I do not run heavy applications, I use this note for web development and any games. If anyone has any ideas, I appreciate it!

When I install the newest Nvidia drivers for my Lenovo Y50, many games exhibit freak graphical problems, framerate losses or do not boot. Reverting back to an older driver fixes the problem.I have noticed that the most up-to-date driver available on the product support web-page is from 7/13/15. Is this because newer drivers are incompatible with this laptop? If so, when is Lenovo planning on getting a newer driver to work?I purchased this laptop to play games, and it appears as though I will soon be unable to play new games because this laptop cannot support newer drivers.Thanks, Dan

Hello, I have an Intel R HD graphics problem with a Lenovo 50-30. Originally it was windows 8.1 but has been upgraded to Windows 10. Windows has stopped the device because  it has reported problems code 43. I have followed the Microsoft instructions for uninstalling and reinstalling the device but this is not fixing the problem. Help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi there,

I have a Lenovo 3000 c100 notebook and have recently installed windows 7 however I don't think my video controller is working at all. I am trying to run football manager 2013 and when xp was on it originally it ran it without a problem however having installed windows 7 it wont even launch.

I have checked in device manager and two items, vga flash memory and vga video controller are both not available. I have tried updating them through device manager but it doesn't find any drivers.

I don't have any other games to test it on so have no way of checking to see if the video card works.

Could someone please help me solve this problem

A:Please help..Lenovo laptop graphics problem windows 7

Please can someone help, I,m sure it is a case of the video controller not working but how do I get it working, is the graphics card, just an onboard vga, compatable with windows 7? if so how do I get the drivers??
