G580 Reinstall Help

Q: G580 Reinstall Help

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.

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, I could find the clear information about mine question, so I decided to make a ask (boring) question.ImI owning Lenovo g580 with 2 slots for RAM which are filled now with 2+4 GB DDR3 1333 + 1600 MHz respectively. I found that my model can run up to 16 GB.So, my question is: can I replace 2 GB RAM with 8gb 1600 MHz (8+4 GB), or I must stay with 4+4 or 8+8? Model name: 20150P/N 59382134S/N CB27750663

Reference this post:https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Lenovo-B-and-G-Series-Notebooks/G580-What-ram-is-supported/td-p/2275301 It is best to have equal size in each slot, ie 4+4 or 8+8.  Mixed sizes also work, ie 4+2, 8+4.

Hello,I have a brand new G580 with 2X USB 3.0 and one USB 2.0 Port. The 2.0 port works fine but the 3.0 ports don't show any reaction. The Harware manager indicates an error for the the USB 3.0 eXtensible host controller but refreshing the driver showes no effect. Any ideas if that is an Hardware- or only a driver problem?

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 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.
 
Regards

My son's laptop 'died' earlier this week. Screen just went blank. In the end, I decided to rebuild the drive.
After much difficulty, I managed to reinstall the OS (Windows 10) and all seemed well.
Oh, except the reinstall does not provide even WiFi drivers at a minumum - so after figuring that out I had to dig that up too on another computer and transfer/install. Problems over... I thought.
As the XPS went on its way to update drivers - the screen suddenly went blank (hello! haven't we met before?)... made some melodious beeps and chirps as though trying to communicate (it wasn't morse code) and now the computer continues to hum away (the fans?) with that.... black screen.
Before I wipe everything and re-install, again, and perhaps let the machine run with old drivers at the risk of malicious attacks etc (small price to pay for a 'working' computer I suppose), might anyone know of solutions to this problem?
With thanks in advance.
Signed,
Frustrated but Hopeful

A:Dell XPS 13 Black Screen - cause for OS reinstall - happened again after reinstall during driver updates

Hi ASHAROM,
What is the exact system model?
Is there any damage / liquid spillage on the system?
For the beeps, first we need to check if the HW is functional:
Restart the system and press f12 key on startup - choose diagnostics. Let it run the diags and if you encounter any errors - make a note of the complete error and report the same to us. These are onboard diagnostics and they might possible pick some error if the hardware is not functional. Also, run an extended / thorough tests on the HDD and memory to check for any possible errors. 
Drivers: If you are using a retail image of Win 10 OS, it will contain only the OS installation files, since the OS is generic. The hardware on each system would differ and hence, the drivers need to be reinstalled. If you are using a recovery image for your system, then it would contain the required drivers with the OS image.
Also, please click my DELL-username and write me a private message with the service tag and your Name for case records.
Let us know if you have any other queries.

The installer started to examine the hardware but the very moment it says "starting up Windows" I'll get the Blue Screen of Death... Second tryI did a clean install of XP on a desktop PC, installed SP3 and all updates, plus the Lenovo drivers from this homepage for Chipset, video card, etc. etc. Then I tried to clone the whole thing with Clonezilla. Guess what? - Didn't work either (I guess because the installed Lenovo drivers weren't activated)... So - what is needed to get it going? What Windows XP version is necessary for the G580? Thanks.

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.

Hi, I am using a lenovo G510 laptop with i3-4000M CPU 2.4GHz processor. I wanted to know whether I could upgrade the cpu to an i7-4610M. Will this be supported by my motherboard. I saw some article in google that it will support but wanted to confirm with the experts before I bought the processor. Please help....!! Thanks & Regards Roshan

Hello,I had to replace the FAN as original was broken.I ordered the same FAN from Chinese site and replaced it.This new FAN works cool and quiet as expected but the laptop seems not to be able to detect the FAN speed at startup.When I power it on the FAN speeds up and lights go on for 1-2 seconds and then off.Then again and again and eventually it starts just fine on 1-st or 3-rd or N-th attempts. Once started it's rock solid.I looked in BIOS for option to ignore FAN speed detection like in other computers but there's not such.I updated to the latest BIOS and it's still the same (https://download.lenovo.com/consumer/mobiles/62cn44ww_64.exe).Can you please help?
