Preferred Solution: Need help in choosing SSD for my Lenovo G580 (2689)

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.)

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.

Hey All,
I have a LENOVO G580 2689 Laptop. It has:

Intel Core i3 2.40GHz (i3-3110M)
DDR3 (4GB)
No hard drive
Windows 8 sticker.
I would like to install a 1TG Hard drive. Which hard drive is compatiable with this laptop? Also it has a Windows 8 sticker underneath the laptop but the Windows 8 serial key is not present. Where can I find the licence key for this machine? Are they stored in the BIOS/motherboard?
 
Thank you in advance! :-)

A:Which hard drive to install on a LENOVO G580 2689 Laptop?

Try this for the HDD: http://www.amazon.com/Laptop-Hard-Drive-Lenovo-G580/dp/B00M4OGZQI. As for the windows 8 serial key, I don't know. My lenovo Y410p doesn't have the serial key on it, but I had no problems installing windows 8.1.

Last week, I upgraded CPU from celeron b820 to i7-3632qm in lenovo g580 (2689) laptop.BIOS can sucessfully reconize i7-3632qm.However, when I boot my computer in windows 7, I encountered systematic frozen which can not control both mouse and keyboard.So, I just turn off my computer using On/Off botton.I thought that I should reinstall windows 7, because of upgrading CPU.After reinstalling windows 7, my computer sucessfully could boot and smoothly operating all of windows system.So, I though that I can solve systematic frozen problem.Unfortunately, however, I encountered systematic frozen phenomenon again after using my computer around 1-2 hours.When I just use my computer under windows 7 system, my computer ramdomly stop and I can not control any keyboard and mouse also.I don't know, why my computer suddenly frozen.To solve this problem, I formated SSD drive and I installed windows 10, because this OS can detect many impotant driver in my upgraded computer.

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.

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.

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 with windows 7 home premium 64 bit, whenever it goes to sleep, in whatever way, I get a black screen telling me that windows did not shutdown successfully.
I have completed a system restore to factory settings and downloaded and installed all updates. I have also run all Lenovo diagnostics to no avail.
I have changed the settings in power options, the bios has no power option.
I would appreciate any help
Many thanks

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?
