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.

Preferred Solution: G580 Reinstall Help

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.)

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

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.

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

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

What Windows XP version is necessary for the G580? Thanks.

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...

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.

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?

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.

Hallo, I tried to boot on my new G580 (2189, Win8) a Linux (LiveCD). Unfortunately I failed. The BIOS misses entries to select possible boot devices or boot order. Obviously these entries are in the UEFI BIOS. How to edit/expand these entries to boot from DVD or USB stick? Or is it necessary to add some options via BCDEdit? If yes, how to do it? Here the same message in German: ich habe jetzt mal versucht, auf meinem neuen G580 mit Win8 von einer DVD bzw. von einem USB-Stick ein Linux (LiveCD) zu booten. Leider vergebens. Im BIOS fehlt der wichtige Menüpunkt, in dem die bootfähigen Devices angegeben werden können bzw. die Bootreihenfolge festgelegt werden kann. Müssen die Einstellungen über das UEFI BIOS durchgeführt werden? Wenn ja, wie? Könnte man ansonsten mit BCDEdit den Bootmanager bearbeiten? Wenn ja, welche Eintragung muss ich vornehmen?

A:G580 (2189) does not boot from USB or DVD

As this is one of the first items to pop up in a search regarding this problem, I thought I would share my solution:Enter the BIOS. Disable Secure Boot (requires setting a password first). Set boot mode to legacy (non-UEFI).You can now boot successfully from a USB drive!The only way I could make it boot from a CD (or, in fact, 'see' the optical drive at all) was to set the SATA controller to legacy (emulated IDE) mode. This would be less than ideal usually as installing in legacy mode and switching back to AHCI mode afterward invites many headaches alone, but in this case it proves utterly pointless since the hard drive was invisible to my USB boot drive anyway. *banging head off wall*I am not impressed with this laptop.

Hi Durgaprasad ,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums
 
I?m sorry to inform you that the Wireless feature is not working as expected in your G580. I suggest you to download the driver again and while installing right click and select ?Run as administrator? option as doing this will install the complete driver without any error.
 
NOTE: Please click on "Select Product" then in "QUICK PATH" enter the model no. as G580 select the exact model.

Hope this helps!!!
 
Do post us back if the issue still persists.
 
Best Regards

I have a G580 with 2 sticks of 4gb (8gb total) currently. I bought these hoping they would work:https://www.amazon.com/Crucial-PC3-14900-Unbuffered-SODIMM-204-Pin/dp/B00JCRZ6XS/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&... However, when I install them I only get a black screen with the camera light lit up. Is this ram incompatible? I thought this laptop was able to handle 16gb of ram.

Diagnostics told me that wireless connections are turned of so i tried FN +F5 but still no change . Drivers are uptodate. Everything is working fine on linux. Any solution.

A:Lenovo G580 WIFIproblem.

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?
