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.

Hi. I've got Lenovo G580 (20150) and I'm trying to install the geforce graphics card present in the system. I don't know exactly what the gpu model is but it's something akin to Geforce 610M. I've got Windows 8.1 installed and the drivers from Lenovo support page for this laptop don't work (I tried drivers for Win 8.1/8/7). During installation the drivers installer says that it "couldn't find appropriate hardware". I also tried various drivers from sites like driveridentifier but none worked. I even installed Win 10 and Windows Update found but couldn't install the drivers. I also have  Win 8.1 freshly installed. It's definitely not an OS problem. I also don't have recovery dvds/partition... Here are the graphics identifiers:PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_1140&SUBSYS_397717AA&REV_A1PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_1140&SUBSYS_397717AAPCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_1140&CC_030200PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_1140&CC_0302

My g580 ran out of battery while using it, and now it gets stuck on the lenovo logo. I tried a different hard drive which changed nothing, I've tested both hard drives on a different computer and they both work. However when I boot the laptop with no harddrive it will get past the logo go to a screen saying something about an unplugged cable then reset and get stuck on a blank screen.   If I plug in my windows recovery usb drive( and no harddrive) the the machine will boot normally and go to the windows installation screen. So any ideas on why a working harddrive would stop the system from booting? Also I've tried the whole taking out the battery unplugging it holding down the power key and then plugging it back in thing, did nothing.

Sounds like a bad or corrupt driver.   Have you tried removing the WiFi card from within Windows Device Manager, checking the box to "Delete driver software for this device", rebooting and then installing the latest driver from Lenovo?

Hi Welnk,
Welcome to the Community Forums.
Although the G580 model was not released with SSD, several members have successfully upgraded their HDD to their choice of SSD as discussed here.
We cannot guarantee Intel® SSD 540s Series but should work as long as the specifications are the same else you can scan it with crucial to match. Best to check return options when purchasing from third party resellers just in case.
Hope this helps answer your query.

Hola, tengo una Lenovo G580, con la cual estoy muy contento, aunque la uso solo en mis viajes. Desgraciadamente el gestor de energía de Lenovo me recomendó que cambiara la configuracion para que la bateria se cargara solo hasta el 60% , cosa que hice, al poco tiempo dejo de cargar completamente y ahora funciona solo si a tengo enchudada. El equuipo tiene muy poco uso. Trate de entrar al Lenovo Energy manager, para solucionar el problema según lo aconsejado, en este mism foro. Desinstale el Energy Manager y lo volví a instalar, pero sigue igual, que puedo hacer. No pienso comprar un paquete nuevo de bateria y que suceda lo mismo. El cargador funciona bien, ya que sacando las baterias y enchufndo el cargado funciona perfecta. Solo no se carga la bateria, lo demás, como siempre sin inconveniente. Espero ayuda. Gracias. Mauropo

Now i face fps drops. the games i used to play on my laptop with old bios, now started lagging. I also can't find the old bios file on support page. kindly advice.

A:Lenovo G580 20157 Performance.

Hi Puneet,
Welcome to Lenovo Forums.
We are really sorry to hear about the issue you are facing.
Firstly, Check BIOS? Sometimes a BIOS has fan speed controls.
This is normal as the game is running and full GPU is utilized, if the temp increases more than normal.  I suggest you to use the Laptop by placing it on a flat surface for good ventilation.
Please go through the below link to understand about Safe Temperature range for CPU?

Hey, I'm currently using a G580 Lenovo laptop.One day I played my laptop and supricely it just turned off, so I turned it on again and once I typed my password to access the PC it turned off again, so I got the battery out the PC and waited five minutes, after I got the battery back I pressed the power button and nothing happened, no lights, no noice, nothing, just not turning on. I tried to find my problem on the internet and I found a youtube video how to fix that: get your battery off with your charger, press the power button 1 minute, get back the charger into the pc and press the power button and ta-dam! It's working. Well no, I did everything and it didn't solve my problem. Any ideas?

A:Lenovo G580 laptop does not turning on

Hi Eliaszzq , 
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
Since you have performed power drain, you may proceed with the power check as described under your hardware manual (page 21).
As it should indicate led status lights or fan activity removing the battery and directly plugging the ac adapter. See if pressing the Novo button instead of the power button as it should also be an alternate on powering up the system. 
Using a known good ac adapter or checking the original charger with a voltmeter can help isolate whether issue is with the adapter itself , wall socket / strip cord , DC in port is loose or there's contact failure , power board / systemboard failure. 
Just the same, as it is a power issue calling in technical support for inwarranty repair or checking with local service center can be the next step after the power check out. 
Update us how it goes.

Hi,I have a lenovo G580 laptop with 1TB seagate HDD. Hard drive specs are provided below. The laptop is not working now. I am able to boot my laptop but it shows blank screen afterwards. even the one click recovery option provided in my laptop doesnt work. When i try the one click recovery, it shows copying files and then I see the blank screen again. I've waited more than a day with just the blank screen. I tried running the lenovo diagnostic tool and found that SMART quick test got failed. further I tried to search and recover bad sectors, It ran till 95% but process got very slow after that.. its still 95% even after 2 days, and I see more than 65k bad sectors. It looks like my harddrive has gone bad, when I removed the hdd and booted laptop using my windows 8 bootable flash drive, i got the windows install screen (when i did the same with HDD installed, it dint show the windows install screen.) Would it be fine if I bought a replacement HDD and install windows on it? I dont know where my windows 8 product key is and somewhere I found that its in BIOS and the new windows install should recognize it automatically.  Also would any HDD work for my laptop or only selective ones? I heard that G580 laptops comes with OEM hard drives,

Hi anantanandgupta,
Welcome to the Lenovo Community Forums.
There should be no problem with the warranty, the HDD is a customer replaceable unit that is easily accessed.  I would greatly suggest to exercise caution when doing so.  Also if there would be a need to have the system serviced you wil have to place the original hdd back in.
The laptop will support 6 Gb/s (Sata III). Please see specifications sheet from this link.
Hope I answered your question.

Hello!      I am new in the community and would like some help related to my recently purchased g580 lenovo laptop. I have used my laptop on a daily basis for a few weeks and just yesterday when I turn on my laptop, it starts up on a "OneKey Recovery" menu I have never seen before. It gives me 2 options about system recovery: 1) Restore from initial backup or 2) Restore from users backup. I do not know how to use the second option so I chose the first one and continued to follow directions. Afterwards it starts to restore the system and I let it wait until it is finished. When it is done, I press finish and then I press done, and a prompt asks me if I want to shutdown or reboot. I chose shutdown and I turned the laptop back on, only to see the "OneKey Recovery" menu to show up AGAIN. This problem won't stop and this menu continues to show up whenever I start my laptop up! I need help, what can I do to fix this problem? And can someone please let me know why this menu came up in the first place as well? Thank you.

A:Lenovo g580 startup problem.

Hi Tbros,
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
I?m sorry to hear that your G580 Laptop is getting into OKR (One Key Recovery) menu whenever you turn ON, this may have occurred if the OKR button beside the power button is stuck. But try performing Flee Power and reset the BIOS to its defaults, below are the steps to perform the troubleshooting:

Remove the battery and any other peripheral device connected to the computer. Hold the power button for 10 seconds and then connect only the AC Adapter and try to turn ON the computer.
Then keep tapping on the?F2? key before the Lenovo Logo appears to enter BIOS menu

       Note: To check how the BIOS menu looks and to explore its options Click Here.

Then to reset the BIOS to its defaults click on ?F9? Key and select YES.
Now click on ?F10? Key to safe the changes that are done in BIOS, computer will automatically check if the issue is resolved.
If the issue persists even after performing the BIOS reset, I would Strongly Suggest Calling Technical Support for Assistance.

Recently bought a new Lenovo G580 to replace my old decrepit Toshiba. It worked fine for a couple of days, but suddenly started BSOD-ing as I began to use the laptop more and more.

I have noticed it is more susceptible to BSOD-ing when I am running Bit Torrent. Although it seems to wait until it strikes, luring me into a false sense of security and then crippling me.

I ran BlueScreenView, as I have seen many people mention it on various forums, including this one, and the such and it gave me these results. Sorry if this is not the accepted way of throwing out these results, but I am unsure what I am doing.

I have put it on here in its entirety but I dont really know what this is either. Download Dump file.txt from Sendspace.com - send big files the easy way

Posted on Reddit as well, but I have yet to receive any help there. :( Laptop keeps BSOD-ing. Think it may be torrent related. : techsupport

Pretty brain dead computer wise, so sorry if this is unreadable/invokes facepalms all round.

Any advice or help would be very much appreciated as I have no idea what I am doing. If all else fails I suppose I can send it back.

Thanks in advance.

I have a Lenovo G580 with Windows 8. I have a weird problem with audio. If the default audio is set as internal speakers and I plug in my headphones the sound just keeps coming from the internal speakers. But if I set the headphones as default, I can switch between the speakers and headphones as I want and there is no problem if only I play music from my computer.

If I try to play something from my browser, however, the sound only comes from the internal speakers and connecting the headphones does nothing. Except (and this is where it gets weird) if I play something from my computer first using the headphones. Then I can play anything from the browser and hear it through the headphones as long as I don't plug them out. If I plug them out, the sound switches back to the internal speakers and trying to plug in the headphones again doesn't do anything. So I have to play something from my computer again with the headphones plugged in and then switch to my browser to again play everything through my headphones.

What's wrong with it? Any way to make it work as it should work?
