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 can't seem to find specific information about this pc related to this topic. I have a client that wants to have a hdmi port and dual monitor installed. I looked everywhere in the bios settings, I tried using a usb-to-vga adapter & and vga, dvi-d cable & vga (this mirrors both monitors, but cannot extend the display). When I changed the settings on the bios to use the built in graphics, it gives me the option to enable multiple monitors but cannot use my pcie graphic card. If i select to use the pcie graphic card, i cannot use the built in graphic ports or the usb-to-vga adapter (it does not see the other monitor) and also if I use the dvi adpater and the vga it mirrors the display. I'm guessing that the bios does not support dual graphic cards but thought of asking here. The reason the client wants this is to be able to connect a projector using hdmi and to have dual monitors. Any information will be greatly appreaciate it. Thank you.

Hi Azadkv,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community!
 
I?m sorry to hear that your G500 Laptop is not booting to Windows and hanging at Lenovo Logo and the issue persists even after performing Flee-Power step. Hence, I suggest to perform BIOS reset and check if the issue persists. Below are the steps to perform BIOS reset:
 

To access BIOS menu turn OFF the Laptop and press the NOVO button located beside power button.
Then to reset the BIOS to its defaults click on ?F9? Key and select YES.
Now click on ?F10? Key to save the changes that are done in BIOS, the computer will automatically restart.

Do post us back if the issue persists.
 
Best Regards

I am using Windows 7 , 32 bit. I noticed that on each update of Windows 7 , the sound disappears (and no, its not muted, and no Bluetooth device  ...).The "no sound" can be observed in the following:- No Windows sound when login/logout of windows.- No sound when playing from Internet (Youtube)- When I try to play a file using windows media player, I get the message "windows media player encountered a problem while playing the file". The file is good and played o.k before the update.I am using the latest Conexant driver and all seems to be o.k. In the device manager.To overcome this , I need to reinstall the Conexant driver after each update, which is not acceptable (never had to mess around in any of the previous laptops I had).Any suggestions ?

hi Lior11,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
You can do this to exclude device driver from Windows Updates
 
Open a run box (Windows key + R)
Type in sysdm.cpl   hit enter
Then click on Advanced System Settings

 
You should have a windows with Tabs / Go to Hardware TAB and click on Device Installation settings

 
Now click on "No let me choose what to do"
  Never Install driver software from Windows Update then save changes.
 
Hope this helps
Cheers!

Hey Greg,

Since the SSD would be the same standard 2.5" size of the HDD in the laptop, you shouldn't have any issues swapping them.

The metal tray that holds the hard drive will have side screws that will work with the SSD as well. Just make sure that the SATA connection lines up before screwing the SSD on the tray though to avoid having to flip it afterwards. LOL

Hello there, I own a Lenovo G500, a 2013 model, and I just bought a 2 x 4GB 1600 MHz Kingston HyperX DDR3L memory kit.I pulled the old 4 GB memory out and put the new cards in, but both my Windows 7 and the BIOS see only one of them, so the laptop only uses 4 GB of RAM.I tried putting the cards in one by one, the bottom slot works, but when I only use the top slot, the laptop does not boot. It's likely this is the problem, cause even CPU-Z only sees RAM in one of the slots and displays "Single Channel" running. My question would be: is there a possibility this is a software issue? Is there a way to enable dual channel?If not, could this be a motherboard issue? Thank you. Regards,Darren

Okay where do I start? When I first got my notebook around 2 years ago, it was perfectly fine. A few months from now, that's when it started to mess up in so many ways. My system constantly froze randomly, Windows had trouble booting the system, etc. Aside from these issues, I figured I had to factory reset my system in order to fix it. I did this and my system worked fine, only if I was lucky enough to successfully boot it up. It takes 40+ minutes for it to boot up and it works perfectly fine when it does and when I'm browsing through the desktop, but I think there may be major hard drive issues with it. The D drive/partition, or as it's called, the recovery drive, is inaccessible and empty. When I factory reset my laptop, I was able to open it but it was empty. After a few Windows Updates and boots, I can't do this anymore. Bare in mind I was running Windows 8.1 at the time. This partition could be the main culprit as to why my system takes so long to boot up, but I could be wrong. The only things I've installed on it is Windows 10. These are the things I've done with no success: -Run my notebook without the battery and only the charger-Remove the CMOS battery when booting up notebook-Remove the disc drive and boot up notebook I'm honestly running out of ideas. I've tried looking at the other forums but I think my issue is a lot different then theirs. On the other hand I can sometimes successfully boot up my system so maybe having this could give me...

Hi there. I'm planning to buy a Lenovo G500 laptop, and I simply can't find the correct answer to one small question.

As you might know, laptops of today incorporate many hotkey functions on their F1-F12 keys. And for that particular Lenovo model (and some of its closely-related brethren), I can't figure out what the F8 hotkey does in Windows 7.

It looks like three small squares, and ''F8'' below them. According to the G500 user manual, it is used to ''display all currently active apps''. As apps are only available in Windows 8, does anyone of you know what purpose could it serve in Windows 7?

I posted this already on Lenovo official forums, but not a single soul bothers to answer. There's gotta be someone who uses Windows 7 on Lenovo G500/G505/G510/G700/G710 or any other Lenovo with inverted Fn/function keys. If you're one of them, press F8 (or Fn+F8) and tell me what happens.

Thanks in advance.

It starts with the logo of lenovo and then it goes to a black screen and it is saying that is loading FreeDOS and is asking to enter a new date, new time and then it says C:/> and nothing happens. I put in the cd with Windows 8 drivers but i can't make it boot from the cd/dvd. Anyone can help?Thanks!

A:Booting for the first time in my Lenovo G500

Hi Stathesp,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
I?m sorry to hear that your G500 Laptop is booting to Black screen, I suggest you to change the Boot priority of CD/DVD drive 1st and HDD (Hard Disc Drive) to 2nd, below are the steps to access BIOS:
 

Turn OFF the computer and then click on NOVO button which is located at the left side of the computer.
Then under Boot tab change the CD/DVD as 1st boot and HDD to 2nd device.
Now press ?F10? Key to save the changes, the computer will automatically restart.
Then check inserting the Disc and check the issue.

Do post us back if the issue still persists.
 
Best Regards

Shiva Kumar

The Current configuration of my laptop is
LENOVO G500, WINDOW 7 Ultimate 32 Bit
Processor: Intel (R) core (TM) i5-3230M [email protected] GHz 2.60GHz Ram 4 GB
Hi I Want to Install the Window 10 1607 English x64 On my LENOVO LAPTOP G500. Problem is Lenovo till Now, not released the Drivers for WINDOW 10 64 BIT and I have no hope they will release it soon, many customers demanded this for that on LENOVO Community Forum. But they only care about the money and new customers not existing customers. Because of such type of attitude towards customers I will never buy the any LENOVO product in future
Currently for WIFI, Driver Program Qualcomm Atheros Communication is installed . For DOLBY ADVANCED AUDIO V2 Separate Dolby drivers are installed and laptop have SILIENT FAN Feature too. My question: if I install FRESH Window 10 1607 English x64 on my laptop will Window 10 automatically install Required WIFI drivers out of box during installation process ? or Will WIFI not works after installation and will both DOLBY AND SILIENT FAN feature will works after Window 10 installation.
Anybody who have successfully installed the window Window 10 1607 English x64 on LENOVO g500 please share your?s experience .
Thanks

Lenovo does not make drivers, it is just a reseller. If the hardware is not supported, there is nothing it can do.

That said, everything might work, 8.1 drivers are mostly compatible with 10, so you will not know, until you try.

I have a G500 Ideapad that will not boot or boot to the bios no matter what I try. It goes directly to a blank screen (back light is on monitor but nothing appears) no matter which button I push to turn it on. The Lenovo screen does not appear. I have removed everything including the hard drive, reseated the ram and the processor and have even unplugged the cmos battery after removing the main battery for days and it still will not go to bios. This happened two other times but I was able to get it to go to bios. I have upgraded from win 8.1 to 10.

I tried the hard reset. Nothing. I even tried to put another hard drive from another computer in but still get that maddening blank screen right after turning on. Trying Fn + F1 or F2 does nothing. I would love if someone has some idea I can try to get to the bios I have not tried.

I have a Lenovo G500 and it will not turn on all the way. It gets to the logo screen and then gets stuck, enters diag mode, and then sends me to the blue screen. I've tried refreshing, resetting the files, and wiping the entire thing clean, and still can't get past this screen. I'm thinking the HDD is shot. Anyone have any suggestions of solutions? If you think the HDD is shot, any suggestions to what I should replace it with?  Thanks!!

Dear Community, I have a G500 laptop (i5-3230M; 8 GB RAM, 1 TB SSHD, ATI HD8570M). I have multiple issues with that. On 19.04.2016 I was able to use my laptop without problems, after that I closed the lid. After around 1 hour I opened that again but already had the issues. My problems are the followings:- DVD-RAM disappeared from BIOS, however it is working fine (tested in another laptop.) In my laptop it is blinking, ejecting the tray and is rotating after inserting a disk but after a short period it stops blinking and rotating. I have found some topics already here, but there the problem was with the DVD-RAM, that is not the case by me.- SSHD stoped working as well (tested under Win 7 and Ubuntu; By Win 7 the disk recognized, however the partions were not visible and the disk management wanted to initialize the disk fist. By Ubuntu the disk was not visible in Gparted, but in Testdisk, however it said there is no partition on the disk and droped Read error by every cylinders. It seems something is blocking the reading. Testdisk showed me the capacity of the SSHD and the size of the used space as well!) The laptop was clean inside and wasn't hot. What could cause such problems and how can I fix it? Unfortunatly the warranty ended last November. If possible I would require solutions where I can at least access to my data on the SSHD. Thank you in advance!

A:Lenovo G500 multiple issues

Hi vasadam , 
 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
Initially best if you turn off the PC and remove  the optical drive , SSHD, and battery while unplugged from the ac adapter. Press down power button for 12 seconds to power drain . Return the battery and plug the adapter . Turn on to access the BIOS and F9 to load defaults F10 save and exit.  Shut down. 
 
Connect back the optical drive and SSHD making sure that the contacts are good and then turn on to check on BIOS for both DVD drive and SSHD .
 
With the optical drive , if the BIOS still failed to detect it , most likely issue would be the contact between the drive and the motherboard . 
 
For the SSHD , don't attempt to continue with Windows recommended fix and cancel it since it may do some changes with your data inside. Run diagnostics and similar hardware test for isolation. 
 
For data recovery best that you get a service center if they would have other tools to back up for you. 
Update us how it goes . 
 
 
Regards

A:Stuck in Lenovo Screen - G500

Hi Picchu,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community!
 
I?m sorry to hear that your G500 Laptop is not booting to Windows and displaying black screen, I suggest you to perform the Flee-Power and BIOS reset. Below are the steps to check and resolve the issue:
 

Remove the battery and any other peripheral device connected to the computer.
Hold the power button for 10-15 seconds and then connect only the AC Adapter and try to turn ON the computer.
If the issue persists even after performing Flee Power then resetting BIOS to its defaults should resolve the issue
Now to access BIOS menu press the NOVO button which is located beside the power button after turning OFF the computer.
Then select the BIOS utility option to enter BIOS.
To reset the BIOS to its defaults click on ?F9? Key and select YES.
Now click on ?F10? Key to save the changes that are done in BIOS, the computer should automatically restart. Please check if the issue persists.

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

Hi  I bought a Lenovo G500 around a month ago (Windows 8.1, Intel Core i7 2.20 GHz, 8 GB RAM, 1 TB Disk, Broadcom 802.11n Network Adapter).  I have a problem related to wifi connectivity. When i'm at home, no problems with networking. But when i'm at the college, where network is public and realized with a proxy, my lenovo sees the network, but can't connect to internet because the network is "unidentified" and i have a "limited access". My other PC and my HTC One continue to work fine with the routers and access points placed in the college. I tried everything: reinstall wireless drivers, reset winsocks and ip, disable Windows and Comodo firewalls, disable the energy options of the network adapter... but nothing seems to change, and every time i have the same problem: nothing fixes the issue. If anyone has any suggestions I would be very grateful! Thanks

Try this,
 
StepA.
   Open Device Manager and check under Network Adapters,
Remember what brand you wireless is ex. Intel, Realtek, or Atheros
   right click on it and click Uninstall.
      Place a check on the Prompt that says Delete Driver Software for this device.
Now click the View option at the top of Device Manager and select Scan for driver changes.
    Open Network adapters again right click and click uninstall driver 
Now
    On the same prompt for deleting the driver check if there is a check box still.
 
If yes Repeat the step until you don't see the checkbox anymore. then proceed to Step B.
If no Proceed to Step B,
 
Step B.
    Restart the computer.
 
Download and Install the driver below for what wireless you have
 Intel WLAN Driver 
 WLAN Driver (Atheros, Broadcom, Realtek) 
 
Restart the computer after installation and Reconnect to the wifi you're having issues with.
