Q: Issues with Lenovo Ideapad z570, switchable graphi...

If you have a z570 you'll know that they have a switchable graphic system controlled by a switch at the front of the laptop. However, after a repair by KNOWHOW, this switch is gone - they replaced the base plate obviously with the wrong model parts. Is there any way I can bypass this switch and enable my Nvidia card manually? At the moment it's greyed out in the control panel and I can't use it to play any games.This laptop used to have the switch. The Nvidia card in question is GT520M

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.)

So everything has been working fine on my laptop until about 10:30PM EST tonight. I bought it new in August 2011.
Specs:
 
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium
CPU: Intel Core i7-2630QM @ 2.00 GHz
RAM: 8 GB
HD: 750 GB
BIOS: 45CN36WW
 
It's always been a fine machine with NO problems.
However, last night there were Windows 7 updates that were installed and then restarted my computer. I had not gotten a chance to check exactly what they were though. About 10:30 this evening, flash crashed in Mozilla Firefox which is not that uncommon, and from there Firefox closed, and so did my Microsoft Word and Excel apps that were open. From there, my computer began to shut down and restart. When it went to restart, all it could do was go to the opening Lenovo screen which gives you the F2 (setup option) and F12 (multiboot menu option) as it typically does. Besides a thin strip at the top that appeared after about 30 secs that only displays moving static that eventually will just stick, that is where the boot process ends. No Windows 7 screen, and certainly no opportunity to boot into safe mode to check for any problems. The screen freezes and goes nowhere.
 
So basically, all I'm getting in terms of boot options are lenovo features, not windows 7 features, meaning it won't boot into windows 7 or windows 7 safe mode no matter what I try. The biggest problem here is that I have no windows 7 disc to even try to boot from my dvd drive.
 
Anybody have any suggestions on what the probl... Read more

Hello dear community, recently I bought myself a Lenovo ideapad 305. Mainly for office purposes, however the fact that it has a Nvidia 820m as a secondary graphics card is a nice feature, since I like to play games from time to time. Since my games aren't the most demanding either, they work just fine as long as I use the 820m on it. They do lag considerably using the Intel Graphics Card. So, the thing is, I am considering whether to upgrade to Windows 10, and one central question is: Will the switchable graphics work? You know, my parents taught me to "ALWAYS have the latest drivers on your computer!" so earlier today I went ahead and downloaded the latest driver for the 820m from the nvidia website. Unfortunately, my parents hadn't told me that that's not how it works with hybrid graphic pcs. Apparently if you have two graphics card in one pc only the drivers from the manufacturer will work. That explains why my game suddenly started lagging after the driver update (even THOUGH I had it set to use the nvidia card on the nvidia control panel). I went back to the original driver via the onekey recovery partition now, and it works fine just like before. HOWEVER that means I would need a driver directly from Lenovo that makes this switchable thing work under Windows 10. Is there? If so, does it work? Any experiences? I need to decide this rather quickly, what with work and also the free upgrade period ending rather soon. Thanks a lot in advance!Gre... Read more

Dear Members,I am in trouble with my  Idea Pad Z570: I bought it couple of years ago running Windows 7. During the years of usage I had no trouble at all. With Windows 10 beeing released, I upgraded and it starts to make a lot of troubles: Bluescreen directly after boot or sign in, no WiFi, ... all the known stuff. So I decided last week to downgrade to Windows 7. But now, I am even in a bigger trouble:I tried to boot the Windows 7 from DVD and it crashed into Bluescreen saying: Windows Error 0xc0000225Restarting is not helping. So, i tried to go into BIOS to boot from another device,but I do not even get to BIOS or UEFI. So, thats a kind of Deadlock: I cannot boot from Harddisk because Windows Error 0xc0000225 appears and I cannot get into BIOS & UEFI because the Windows error 0xc0000225 comes before getting to BIOS. Hope this description of my current situation is understandable and you guys have a lot of ideas how to fix it. Thanks!TheGooner

I have an older Ideapad z570, it made a popping sound and it won't power up now either.  I ordered a replacement adapter from lenovo thinking that was the issue as the light on the adapter was not coming on when it was plugged in.
 
After reading some of these boards, it appears I might have an issue with the mother board.  I would like to see abou getting it replaced, but there are no repair centers close to me, and I cannot find any information on Lenovo's webiste as to who I can contact or where I can send it.
And information to this end would  be greatly appreciated.  Sorry to tack on to this thread, but seemed silly to create another one for the same issue.
 
Thanks,
 
Mod's Edit: Since your issue involves a different model it was moved to its own thread in the correct forum in the Lenovo Z series notebook.

Couple days ago, my hard drive went bad and I installed new hard drive and Windows 10. In addition, I try to update BIOS to the latest software (45CN38WW.exe) but during update the BIOS program froze.

Hello there!Would somebody be so kind as to tell me how I am able to turn off UEFI mode in BIOS of my Lenovo IdeaPad Z570?(I can see very few things and options in the BIOS menu at the moment.)It's necessary, since I'd like to reinstall Windows 7 Home Premium to my computer and during the installation process there is an error message - while choosing the partition where to install the system: "Windows cannot be installed to this disk. The selected disk has an MBR partition table. On EFI systems, Windows can only be installed to GPT disks."And I've read somewhere that turning UEFI mode off would solve the problem.By the way, I'd appreciate any other ideas or suggestions to solve this problem.

A:Lenovo IdeaPad Z570 - MBR/GPT disk problem (or BIOS/UEFU)

There are two solutions for your problem.WARNING! Both the ways that I suggest will ERASE ALL OF YOUR DATA ON YOUR HD! If you have anything you want to save, copy it before doing it.First, easy, is to erase all partitions from your disk via windows installation utility. Then, windows will offer you to convert disk to GPT.Or, if windows doesn't do it in this 'automatic' way, you can convert disk to GPT using diskpart.For this, use this manual to access console http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/682-command-prompt-startup.htmlThen, type following commandsdiskpartWait until it loads, and thenLIST DISK <-- this will list currently connected disks, you should determine which of the disks is the one on which you want to install windows and remember its number.SELECT DISK <0> <--you should replace <0> with the number you had on previous stage, in most cases, it would be 0CLEANCONVERT GPTCREATE PARTITION EFI SIZE=200 OFFSET=1024SELECT PARTITION 1FORMAT FS=FAT32 QUICKCREATE PARTITION PRIMARY SIZE=<size_for_win_partition_in_megabytes> OFFSET=206848SELECT PARTITION 2FORMAT FS=NTFS QUICK That should be all) After this, you should be able to install windows on your hard drive.

My Windows 7 basically blew up and is no longer working. I tried a one-key recovery as well which utterly failed. As a last resort I tried using Windows 7 recovery disks sent by Lenovo. There are 4 disks 1,2,3, and an additional disk. Everything seemed to be going somewhat smoothly, although slow up until disk 3. The screen shows


"Current Item: ApplyOs" "Recover process is running please don't remove your power adapter."

It's been like this for days. The blue bar load bar under it seems to still be running. Tried again, this time with 4 different disks sent by Lenovo. The first 3 disks went a bit faster, but the end result was still the same, getting stuck on "ApplyOs". Does anyone know how to fix this problem?

Hello! I am new to Lenovo and picked up my 1st laptop yesterday when my HP died. I have always had HP and grew tired of how easy they break & poor battery life, so I wanted to try a different band. I love the computer, the keyboard, track pad & screen are amazing. I bought the ideapad 320-15IAP for about $330 (Including tax) The specs at the store advertised 4.5-5 Hours of battery life, but I have not been able to get a charge better than 2 hours. For someone that uses my laptop at work and on the go, this will not do. Can any one offer up any advice? Does lenovo sell stronger batteries for ideapad that I can replace with this current battery?  My next issue is the Windows 10 update that you are forced to do, I have been trying to install it since 9PM last night, it is now 9PM tonight, a full 24 hours, and it has not fully installed. I have done my fair share of google searches and many people have had these same issues too, but no good solutions outside of deep computer hacking, I don't want to have to do that on a brand new computer. Thanks for any and all help!

Checking with the hardware manual, it only offers guide to the entire keyboard (page 44) and not for individual keys.
 
You may want to check other service providers that offers such (ex. here) or have it checked with your local service center if they can have an easier DIY for the key.

Hello Everyone!I'm facing a problem with my Ideapad Z570 which I wanted to share with the hope of getting a solution. My Ideapad Z570 is rated at 20V, 4.5A which makes it 90W. The original adaptor which came with the laptop was rated at 90W output but it stopped working. So I bought a lenovo adaptor rated at 20V, 3.25A (65W) unknowingly and used it since then. Recently this 65W adaptor has also stopped working. Now my question is whether the 65W adaptor was harming the battery or laptop in any way and which rating adaptor should I buy next coz online there are many 65W adaptors advertised as compatible with z570 laptops. Please help. Thanks in advance!PS: After the change in battery, I've also had changes in motherboard from i5 to i3 and battery.

I am disabled and mostly confined to the bed so I spend most of my time on this computer. It's to be expected that this is happening as a result of how much I use it.

PC: lenovo ideapad 110-15ASTThe audio appears to have a few issues which I can't figure out how to resolve, and while I could return the PC I'd prefer if I didn't have to. 1. When earphones or other audio imputs are connected to the device it switches the input to both the Speakers and Microphone. When connecting an audio input device it will not allow the computer's speakers to be used. The issue isn't the fact the audio jack is for both a mic and a speaker, as my previous PC was fine with being able to determine the device plugged in.Is it possible to fix this? 2. When earphones are connected, it recognises the device has been connected however will not play out of that device.Under connected devices it won't appear, and instead it remains under the PC Speakers. Audio still plays because it displays the volume level as green bars. No sound however is being transmitted from the PC via the default computer speakers or earphones. Occasionally the earphones will work almost randomly, and cut out the same way. I am unsure whether or not this is a hardware issue or if it is a software issue. Is there any advice to fix this? I have previously tried to install and reinstall the drivers, as well as update them, but so far there has been no success in that front.

I'd like to have a docking station for my Ideapad 700.  Does Lenovo have one, or is there one on the open market that will work?  I'd be willing to cobble one together myself, if someone can tell me what's needed.

I have IdeaPad Z570, what happened is once I turned my laptop on and it booted well and turned on as normal. While working I saw that the battery has a low charge so I inserted the charger plug into the laptop and turned on the mains, the moment I turned on the mains the laptop went dead and the LED indicator on the charger that is the orange LED started blinking. Now the laptop is not turning on and whenever I insert the carger into the laptop the LED of the charger starts blinking otherwise it isnt that is when it is not inserted. I have checked the charger with a multimeter and it is fine. Now what to do?

hi apoorvsarode,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
Can you try Removing the battery and unplugging the AC adapter,
    Then hold down the power button for at least 10 sec.
Now try Reconnecting everything and see if it will charge fine.
 
If not-
 
Try Removing the Battery and plugging in the Ac adapter see if that will work,
 
Let me know your findings
Cheers!

IdeaPad i5, 650GB HD, 8GB RAM.Today, my computer suddenly died, no warning that I could see, I was watching a video and wasn't paying the best attention, but there were no noises. The screen just went black and the computer died.The orange light on the power adapter is solid when it's not plugged it, when it plugs it, the light goes out and then blinks twice, dark for a second, then blinks twice again and repeats. I tried taking the battery out and pressing the power button ten times with one second breaks, then holding the power button for thirty. I tried pressing the power button for twenty seconds, then putting the battery in, trying to restart, then trying it with the cord. I've tried leaving it to charge, I've tried taking everything out and leaving it to magically fix itself, but nothings working. I'm not sure on the warranty, bought it refurbished, and can only afford to pay for repairs if it's a last resort. If anyone can recommend anything to try, I'm all ears.

A:IdeaPad Z570 Died, Adapter Blinking

I suspect the blinking light is an error code which is trying to tell you the source of the problem.  Unfortunately there is nothing documented on those error codes in the Z570 manual and guides.  Hopefully someone will stop in with a little more information.  My best guess is that the AC adapter/charger is bad and the system completely drained your battery while you were watching the video. That's why the screen went black and system shut down.  One thing I would try if you have a voltmeter is to check to see if the AC adapter is indeed putting out the required voltage.  Listed on the back of the adapter will be the specifications for it.
