RELEVANCY SCORE 200
Preferred Solution: Ecs G550

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: Ecs G550

This is a laptop/notebook? Usually the video card is not changeably on these except for pssibly higher end computers. What is it you are trying to do that requires a better video card? If gaming, most notebooks are not well suited to gaming.

I did a check of the ECS website and they dont list the G550 they list a G556 and a G553 how ever.

Check your settings for the video output in the video card settings, if you're in the Americas it should be NTSC and PAL in Europe.

I want to do a clean install and replace the pre-installed Vista with Windows 7. I see that the Lenovo G550 download page has drivers for Windows 7, but where is the pre-installed software, like Veriface, camera software, and all other pre-installed Lenovo software? I looked at all OS options for the G550 on the download page, and NONE of them had the G550 laptop software, all they had for each OS option was only  the drivers. I understand that I can make a recovery DVD, but as I understand  it, it will return the system to the factory fresh state (all pre-installed programs installed, but also with the factory installed VISTA  - yuck!). I didn't see any option to only re-install the  Lenovo software without also re-installing the OS. When I look at the download pages for other Lenovo  laptops, I see that they have drivers AND SOFTWARE, but the G550 has no software except for the drivers. Since the G550 came with no software disks, and there doesn't seem to be any of the software online, how exactly does one do a clean installation of an operating system, and then re-install the Lenovo software, on a G550? I was able to find downloads of programs like Veriface on the Lenovo site for different laptop models, but unfortunately those were much older software versions, and for a different Operating system. Why can't Lenovo post all of the software online? If they aren't going to provide the software on DVD... Read more

A:Where is the software for the Lenovo G550???

A week later and still no software? Come on Lenovo, I looked through the forums and saw that I wasn't the only one looking for the downloads. The only thing I can find is older Veriface software for G530s, and that is 32 bit ( I need 64 bit) G550 owners need the software downloads for Veriface, EasyCapture and whatever else you installed on the machine. Why did Lenovo not provide reinstallation DVDs with the computer? Since this wasn't done, then you should at least provide us with download links for this software. There are a lot of folks waiting to upgrade to Windows 7, and they would like to be able to use their built-in webcams after a clean install of Windows 7. DELL provides both reinstallation Disks AND  download links; why is Lenovo incapable of doing the same?

It looks like you already have 1-2gb stick in there, so you would just have to replace the 1-1gb stick with a 2gb stick.

Hello, I bought my Lenovo G550 model 20023 around 4 years ago. When I recieved the laptop there was not any operating system on it and the seller told me that this model does not have one. But now, after years!, by accident I came across this link that shows all the G550 series have windows OS preinstalled on them. My CPU is Intel pentium T4400 with 2 DDR3 gigabte of RAM. My hard disk is 250 GB. I could not find exactly a g550 laptop with these specifications in that link, but there are two models with the same CPU. Does my laptop have a windows os? If yes, can I take it back by lenovo company?   

A:Lenovo G550 Model 20023 OS

Hi yashar2014, welcome to the forums,
 
the odf you linked to only contains models manufactured for the US market, I don't believe there was a document of this type for systems sold on the European market at the time.    You can tell they are US systems by the "U" on the end of the type / model numbers e.g. 2958-2CU.
 
Do you have a similar 7 digit type and model number on your system or any other identifying numbers except the serial number?  Do you have the Lenovo order number for the system?   I'm pretty sure there were versions of the G550 on sale in Europe with DOS preinstalled, no Windows OS.

I am upgrading a Lenovo G550 that I purchased a few years ago for my wife. So far I was able to install 8GB or RAM and a 500GB HDD with no issues. However when I tried to upgrade the processor, the laptop would not power up. It will turn on and the lights will indicate that the HDD is on and the battery is on, but I do not get the Lenovo splash screen. I hear my fan going but nothing happens. Only a black screen. I purchased an Intel Core 2 Duo processor P7550 (2.26GHz, 1066MHz FSB, 3MB L2 Cache) based on the speciation sheet below. I was wondering if anyone might know where I could find any documentation that specifically lists what CPUs are compatible with the Lenovo G550. Ideally I'd like to install the best processor it will take. Thank you.http://www.lenovo.com/shop/americas/content/pdf/notebooks/Essential/G-Series/G550%20Datasheet.pdf

A:Lenovo G550 processor upgrade

hi gbueno832,
 
Welcome to the Forums.
 
The P7550 CPU that you purchased, was that taken out from another Lenovo G550 machine? If no then this is likely the problem as only specific processor FRU's are allowed in the BIOS (whitelist).
 
In addition, is your G550 model (e.g., 2958-3BU) listed in this pdt datasheet?
 
I've looked into the specs and the G550 model uses either an Intel PM45, Intel GM45, or an Intel GL40 chipset and a compatible CPU for an upgrade will be dependent on these chipset. To check what chipset you have, you will need to put back the original CPU and use tools utility tools like HWINFO.

My 3ys old Lenovo G550 has stopped accepting power from the power jack. It's been fluffy for a while and has needed massaging to work, but now it's game over. It's doesn't with/without the battery. Been surfing around and partly concluded that it's a weak point in this design. Was on the Lenovo support today, and it will be too expensive to let them work the problem. Also learned that the power jack comes as a pigtail that can be purchased, but the laptop needs a total tear-apart to exchange the cable. Have not been able to find instructions/videos showing the needed tricks. Anyone in here that can help, or has experience with the same issue?

Good luck on getting it working. If you do find a maintenance manual, please do share.

There are some caveats to "dual booting" with Windows 7 or later, ones that could make your system inoperative (hang at BIOS screen).  Would suggest that you make a set of recovery disks before making changes as this is critical to re=install the  OEM partitions if your Dual Boot procedure fails to work and bricks out the system.
 
Also - I have heard that Linux Mint is the better "debian" version to use when dual booting.  I have been using Mint 17.2 for several months now and love it.  Would say to post on their forum for best answers on setting up a "dual boot" with Windows 7.

Hi, I just bought a brand new g550 and found the @ and quote keys are switched. Hitting the @ key produces quotation marks and vice versa. I'm new to notebooks and laptops, so please tell me whether I'm missing something, or whether I bought a lemon. Thanks

Go to regional settings, languages and change the keyboard layout.  i.e. if it is set to usa, change to UK or to what ever you need Also check that all other settings in the regional settings are set to what you require Reboot and you should be ok Hope the above helps Regards  Mark

I hope someone can give me some advice. I've a friend with a G550 running Windows 7 32 with only 2 GB of RAM, and it's woefully slow. I suggested he update to 4 GB (his system is obviously only capable of addressing 4 GB) and, as I recently updated my G560 to 8 GB (I'm running 64 bit Windows) I wondered whether I could give him one of my two old 2 GB modules (1 original, one added Crucial), or replace both, to upgrade his system? On paper, the memory seems to be similar to my untutored eye - am I missing some incompaibility between the two systems? Thanks for any help you can give.

Good afternoon everyone,  I'm hoping you can help. up front i'm a total ludite.  Recently i've been haveing  extream slow speeds with wifi only. I've had the modem changed, the cords changed and tested etc. etc.  the wifi on my phone is perfect, the wifi on the laptop is brutal I've run the lenovo service bridge and put i my serial number and it keeps telling me it's a desktop. I think i've updated the drivers correctly and it's still abhorently slow.  update tells me that there's nothing to update. up until about a month ago everythign was running fine.  Please help?

Greetings! While I was disconnect my USB Mouse from one of my ports, the black piece of plastic inside the port broke off and remained inside the mouse's USB plug ... I hope that made sense. I'm not a bull-in-a-china-shop kind of guy, and didn't do anything out of the ordinary while removing the plug. This notebook is probably out of warranty, so no joy there. Do we think this might be an easy/cheap fix? Thanks! - Dale

Hi beggersrun,
 
You may able to use the USB port on the laptop as it should work, you can try taking out the piece from the mouse else you won't able to use the mouse
 
 
Best Regards,
Tanuj
