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.

Microsoft rarely mandates a roll back to a previous version of Windows... if you received a notification via email or by phone that told you to roll back to an earlier release of Windows OS it may have been a scam or virus (trojan horse) attack on your computer.  I would strongly suggest scanning the computer for virus / malware with a top notch anti-malware suite such as Malwarebytes as soon as possible.
 
Also - to restore your system to factory specifications / software state you will need recovery disks.  If you did not make them when you first set up your notebook, or have misplaced them they still may be available to purchase from Lenovo Support.
 
Good Luck.

I'm trying to repair a family friends laptop, It somehow managed to break during an update cycle and got constantly stuck there.After plugging the HDD into another computer and copying over the family friends files she needed to keep, I tried to use the Lenovo OneKey restore.This went well, however as soon as Windows 8 tries to update, it will always fail this update and then get stuck in another loop after failed updates. I would be greatly appreciative if anyone can suggest a way around this. My first plan was to try to install Windows 10, however when holding down the OneKey button, the only options that work there are 'Normal Boot' & 'Rescue' - The option for boot options and BIOS do not work, and it kicks the laptop into a normal Windows boot, the failed update messages that continues as normal from there - so i can't try to install anything from USB. I've tried to reinstall from OneKey, then disable EVERYTHING on the auto-startup list (which by the way Lenovo, is absolutely huge and full of bumf no one needs) to try stopping anything from holding onto file locks whilst the update is trying to edit them if that was the issue. So im currently out of ideas to get this back to working order, unless I put it back to Windows 8, then entirely disable the update mechanisms so it can't ever produce the error by itself when it fails to update.

A:USB 3.0 ports G580

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

Let me know if this doesn't fix it.

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.

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.

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

So I bought a new CPU for my old G580 laptop. I wanted to upgrade from the B960 it has right now (it's the 20150 model). The new CPU is a i5-3320M as it's listed as a compatible part on both the downloadable PDF and the PartsLookup website (I checked with my serial number as well). I changed the CPU, installed thermal paste, everything, but to no avail. Won't even enter BIOS. The "on" LED flashes for 10 seconds, then it shuts down. Installed the old CPU again - it boots without problems. New CPU again - no BIOS, nothing. I have updated my BIOS to the latest possible version (version 5ECN96WW (V9.01), as the newer version shows a "Error 255 - TDK Library Initialization Failed". I just don't know what to do anymore. Could be a faulty CPU, but I doubt it. The only difference is that the old CPU is Sandy Bridge, and the new is Ivy Bridge. But it's shown as "compatible" with the laptop everywhere. It's a shame really...

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.
