Preferred Solution: IDEAPAD G580

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.)

A:IDEAPAD G580 - Selecting boot device

Hi andyholmes196 , 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
Where do you set booting previously and current preferred setting ?
 
While turned off , use the One key button (item 4 page 92) to access the Novo menu screen and choose BIOS set up.
Boot tab would offer Boot device priority once UEFI is disabled making EFI active , changing priority then save and exit. BIOS simulator here. 
 
Update us how things go.

Hi
 
I got a 2nd hand Lenovo Ideapad 100S. It came with Win10 installed but had someone elses profile and data. 
(I am not sure if it originally had Win8.1 when it was shipped, there is no rollback option anymore)
 
My preference is to wipe the current installation completely by downloading Win10 and installing a clean copy off USB. 
 
I also usually prefer to delete all partitions, including recovery because future reinstallations can be done from scratch via USB. (I don't need the option of reinstalling from recovery partitions , the extra space is more important)
 
I see a warning in the user guide however .....
"Do not delete or modify the Recovery Partition on a WIMBoot-enabled computer. If the Recovery Partition is deleted or modified, you may not be able to restore Windows to the factory status. For computer models on which WIMBoot is enabled, deleting the Recovery Partition may cause Windows to fail to start. How can I determine whether the Windows running on my computer is WIMBoot enabled? WIMBoot technology is normally enabled on copies of Windows 10 Update running on SSD (or eMMC) -only computer models."
 
What is the best way to do this?

Install a clean copy and remove the partition by booting off a USB, or should I not do this?
Via Settings: settings > Recovery > Reset this PC > Remove everything, or
settings > Recovery > advanced startup > Reinstall from USB

A:Ideapad 100s - Win10 clean installation on ideapad...

 Hi larrens , 
 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
 
It's a good thing you posted first before proceeding with any clean installation. 
Not sure what the Machine Number is to verify the details and specifications of your system.
 
But if you have a pc with a Windows Image Boot (or WIMBoot) you may not want to choose a clean installation. 
This new deployment of installation is compressing part of a big OS file so that you can have an operating system that can only take small spaces intended for small storages (SSD).
 
Best option to wipe out previous owners profile is a have a fresh out of the box image is using the Puch button Factory reset (Novo key similar to Item 7 page 1). Simply shutdown the system and use the button to turn on, System Recovery option would provide One key recovery from initial backup to do it. 
 
WIM boot are usually created thru OEM depot authorized by Microsoft . DIY for WIMboot maybe a bit complicated.
Click on underlined links for further review. 
 
Hope this answered your query.
Update us.

I have a G580 which seems to have OneKey (version 8) installed (with "system backup" and "system recover" options but no "create recovery" option). The HDD is failing and will have to be replaced with a new HDD. I assume this means I will have to use the NOVO button to start the recovery process. Will the "System Recovery" version of OneKey copy an image from an external disk to the new HDD (without access to any of the files on the original HDD)? I currently have no other method of booting the G580 (using e.g. recovery USB) as haven't seen anything about creating one.In addition, of the four NOVO button options ("Normal Startup", "BIOS Setup", "Boot Menu", "System Recovery") I cannot select "BIOS Setup" or "Boot Menu" - "Normal Startup" seems to be run instead. Am I missing a something? "System Recovery" loads "OneKey Recovery" which I exited at the first step as not yet ready to proceed.The OS has been upgraded to Win 10 from Win 8, so would prefer not to start from the original, if it's possible.Thanks.

Need files to download for format and fix windows 8 without losing files in C or non. I deleted some very important files for cleaning virus. Than everything was okay. I decided to use windows repair i was deleted WINDOWS KEY FILE. It said your windows fake. Repair said there is a problem restarting OKAY. Than one time i found blue screen where i could use command prompt for canceling repair but i didnt and i never seen this screen after that. I used Aidata rescue vista disk. It said harddisk system isnt something so it cant install. I wasnt able to edit harddisk file system. I tried hacker xp disk. It said your harddisk damaged, clean viruses or do stuff so if you dont i cant install but i cant open my pc it is saying wellcome Lenovo, please restart. I also made an iso flashdisc file with cancel commands but i think computer isnt able to understand this commands because of windows not even loading. Can you send me files that i will use with my USB flashdisc for canceling everything and just start windows or fixing windows 8 and harddisk corruption without damaging files.

I need in urgent. Thankyou in advance.

A:G580 no os boots

Sorry to hear about your bad experience with lenovo. I'm afraid that you simply need to abandon Lenovo and go with another manufacturer. I have an under warranty G series laptop that lost its boot parameters. I had previously made backup copies of the OS and a 'repair' disc. Neither of which worked. I called Lenovo support and was informed that I must sned them the laptop and only THEY could reinstall the OS. I was also told that any recovery media for my product was 'UNAVAILABLE'. Sad that they cannot simply sned me media to reload it myself. Instead, they must reload it (obviously they have means to do it but simply will not share it with me). I will not ever purchase a Lenovo product and I would advise you to do the same, and advise any friends to do the same. I am doing so and have learned an expensive lesson. I paid more to get Levovo thinking their reputation was one of support, only to discover it is pointless. I should have just bought a cheaper 'non-Lenovo' product. I plan to go on a tirade and post as much information webwide as possible and deter as many as I can before they get screwed over like I did.Sorry you got screwed too,HatingLenoONO

I have a G580 that suddenly won't start at all.  It turned off when my daughter was watching a movie.  I assumed that the battery was dead but I do not know that for sure.  She then plugged it in for the night but it never started again.  When I have it plugged in the light on the front is solid white.  There is no light at all when ONLY on battery.   It does not start when the battery is removed and plugged in.  The system is about 1 1/2 years old and to my knowledge the battery was fine.  I have not seen any charging problems from Windows.  I purchased a new AC adapter but that did not fix it.  Does this seem like a power button problem or a motherboard problem? Thanks,Chris

A:G580 Won't Start

hi chberu, 
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
Please try removing the AC Adapter and Battery
   then hold down the Power Button for at least 10 sec.
      Then Reconnect only the Ac adapter and see if that will fix it, Then reconnect the battery.
 
Also try turning it on with the RAM and Harddrive removed and see if that will show any difference on how the unit starts.
 
If the same problem, even if not Battery is connected, I suggest you contact Lenovo Technical Support for Hardware Assistance or Contact a local tech to check the system board for any issue.

hi Stefan,

Welcome to the Lenovo Community.

The USB 3.0 port requires a driver for it to work (unlike the USB 2.0 that is plug and play). For Windows 7, install the Intel USB 3.0 Driver v1.0.5.235 - http://tinyurl.com/c7e7lw6

Hi nikunjm022 , 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
 
When did it started happening ? If this would be a power management settings then a system restore to go back to a previous working date may help.
 
Try to reset BIOS settings by turning on the pc using the Novo key (item5 page 2) and choose BIOS settings , F9 to reset F10 to save and exit .
 
You can also try updating the touchpad driver from the support site. 
 
We are not eliminating probable affectation of a grounded battery , but would it also happen with an inserted battery while plugged with the adapter?

It would be great.  And just out of curiosity, are there any 16gb memories available for DDR3L?

hi gbar,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
About a Lenovo Factory Reset.
You just Turn it off and Press this button 

 
This will boot your system with option for Recovery.
just follow the prompts and you good to go.
Just remember that this will Delete everything on the current OS and rebuild a new one (Dataloss)
 
 
About Keeping the system Clean. For me....
CCleaner will help you Remove all unnecessary files on the system.
And a good Antivirus Would really help keeping the system from Viruses.
 
Hope this helps

Provided you have a WiFi adapter installed in your notebook, you will need to turn on WiFi in your notebook then sign on to an available wireless network.  I suggest downloading your user manual and reading up on this subject for more information. If you do not see any wireless networks, you may need to purchase a Wireless Router from your internet service provider.  If you do not have a WiFi card in your computer you will need to contact Lenovo directly to purchase a compatible card for your specific notebook.
 
Also - make sure you have a good anti virus software suite installed before you go online.
 
Good luck.

So I'm trying desperetly to help my friend fix his laptop, and I'm running into huge issues. My friend is running a Lenovo G580, and cannot connect to the Wi-Fi whatsoever. When you look down at the connections, it shows a wired connection symbol, and it says that there's no connections to be found. Now I know for a fact that this laptop can use wireless, it was used probably a week or two ago by my friends mother. Now, it can't seem to connect to any wireless networks. I've tried just about everything, turning off power saving, deleting the drivers (which we can't do, as the wireless drivers aren't appearing under network adapter), nothing has changed it. The laptop is running Windows 10, and when we go to Network Settings, there's no WiFi tab, there's Proxy, VPN, etc. I really need help with this.

For as long as I remember my Lenovo G580 would randomly stop recieving an internet connection from my wifi, leaving it still connected but without the ability to go online. I have been solving this problem by disconnecting and recconecting from the wifi, however this has been a temporary solution as the problem keeps coming back. I know this is a problem with the computer because it never happens with the other lenovo laptops in the house nor the phones connected to the same wifi.

Here are the symptoms I've gathered so far 1. The computer will only charge the battery when off or asleep2. The computer will NOT run on AC alone, i.e. if I have the AC adapter plugged in and remove the battery the machine will not start.3. With the computer running, it runs on battery alone.4. If I plug in the AC, the battery icon in the taskbar will not indicate that it is plugged in, but lately it has a sort of flicker to it where it indicates only for a split second that it is plugged in, but will then return to the unplugged indicator, and it will go on doing that every second or so until I unplug the AC. I have tried replacing the Microsoft ACPI- Compliant Control Method Battery driver as others have suggested, but it does not seem to solve the problem. Any help would be greatly appreciated! I have tried using lenovo settings as well as companion from store also got no solution.Also updated the bios from support site  My G580 is running on windows 10 32bit Please do help me.
