Graphic card issues on ideapad FLEX 4-1580

Q: Graphic card issues on ideapad FLEX 4-1580

I just received this machine (from Costco https://www.costco.com/Lenovo-Flex-4-Series-2-in-1-Touchscreen-Laptop---Intel-Core-i7---2GB-Graphics...) in the mail and it's been a mess to get set up in regards to the graphics. It has an integrated Intel HD Graphics 620 card and a dedicated 2GB AMD Radeon R7 M460 Graphics card. I have two main issues: I keep getting a BSOD related to dxgmmm2.sys when the Radeon card is enabled. I found the computer is stable and working just fine when it's disabled. I've tried installing a new/updated driver but I have to enable the driver to do that (then the BSOD comes within seconds of the computer accessing it). The Intel card does not output any image to the third monitor I have connected via a USB/VGA adapter. Though the machine recognizes it and allows windows to move off into that monitor, there is no picture. The monitor is on, connected, and works properly. It flashes when I start up the computer and make changes to the display. I've also done a factory reset on the monitor a couple of times to no avail. Any ideas how I can get this running correctly?

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

So I've had my ideapad for a bit longer than a year (less than a month since my year-long warranty expired, to be a little more exact), and just a couple days ago I noticed some cracking at the top of the screen, next to the camera. It has since progressed and now spans the screen. The touch screen still worked in places but now that the crack has reached the ede of the screen it's randomly clicking icons on the left side of the screen so I've turned the touch screen off.  I figured out the cause of the issue, since I haven't dropped it, because the crack originates from the location where I open the computer up from. That's right, over time opening of the laptop has actually cracked the screen. I'm very distraught at the crack crossing the laptop screen, but moreso I want Lenovo engineers to know that maybe the joints connecting the screen and the base are a little too tight. It's difficult to balance something that can be easily adjusted with something that will retain its structure when set at a certain angle, but maybe you should have a switch that allows the joints to change from a locked to an unlocked position. So in retrospect I'm wondering how else was I supposed to open the laptop, as apparently putting my hand at the top and flipping the screen up was not what the laptop was made for.

Hey, Im from Brazil and my cousin brought me this Lenovo flex 4 1580 from the US. I used very few times during 6 months and then after 3 weeks without using it I tryed to turn it on and it simple woudn´t. I start to seach for solutions, I've read all the topics i found about it on this forum and I was able to turn it on few times holding the power button for a while, but it keeps crashing (just go black, turns off by itself). Sometimes it kept tuned on for longer time but when i try to turn it on again the crashing problems continue. I have also reset the computer (kept my files) ans reinstaled windows and again it keeps crashing. Don't know what else I could do, couse, here in Brazil lenovo doesn't gives me support becouse this laptop model was not sold here, and i can't take it to de US again. Also, Lenovo doen't have any authorized maitenence place anywhere in Brazil. Im considering taking it to any laptop maintenece store to ask for help. Does someone knows anything I could try by my on? Or knows if this problem have solution? Im very disapointed couse its a brand new laptop ans its not acceptable to find this kind of issues. PLEASE HELP!

I have bought a new Lenovo Ideapad Flex 4 1580 which is running a Windows 10. It's fan is always on, varying between lower and higher fan speeds, but it never turns off. Computer starts the fan immediately when the "Lenovo" logo is shown, not some time after Windows is started. Windows installation is fresh, there are no new applications installed, I have updated BIOS to the latest version, as well as all the drivers. Windows has the latest updates, as of today (6th of May 2017). CPUID tool is showing CPU temperature of 36-37 degrees Celsius (96 Fahrenheit), which is pretty low and should not have fans running at all. As soon as the temperature goes to 40 degrees Celsius ( 104 Fahrenheit), the fan becomes very, very loud. Task manager is showing minial usage of CPU, Memory and Disk. Any ideas what I might try next?Thanks

I recently purchased this laptop and did not spend any time playing on the keyboard prior to the purchase.  I am now regretting this purchase as I cannot understand nor adapt to the right shift key not being in the standard location. Why would Lenovo design a keyboard that would not be conducive to touch typing? I cannot seem to change my 45 years of touch typing experience to accomadate this major change.  It makes no sense.  Is anyone else having this issue and what if anything can be done about it?

Images and text will randomly go a bit wild, as seen in the picture. Screenshots taken by the compy didn't display the issue, which is why I had to take a photo. It'll pop up intermittently, If I scroll the screen the text sometimes reverts to normal, other times it stays. This happens with browsers and Word, at the least. I would imagine it's a software issue?

Ok, I have uninstalled the video drivers, updated everything that is available, replaced the HDMI cable, switched the TV HDMI ports.         The TV  shows the HDMI connection as 480, I get sound. The image is large, fuzzy and much of it is off the screen. I have tried all adjustments to the video card that are possible, uninstalled it, reinstalled, updated drivers. Changed every video option that is available. No luck. I have had this laptop hooked to this TV for awhile, nothing wrong with the TV, it is the laptop. It worked fine, I did have the same issue months ago but I did make a change somewhere but can't seem to recreate it. This laptop gets minimum use and this is the only issue with it.  Any suggestions anyone?  Thanks, In advance - Joe

I recently purchased a new Pioneer DDJ SB2 DJ controller. Upon downloading the neccessary software and firmware from Serato DJ and Pioneer, I connected my controller to my computer via usb cord provided by Pioneer. However, when I opened Serato to start playing around, a error message came up saying that my hardware was disconnected. I looked up support from Serato as I thought it was a software issue. I quickly realized it wasn't after going through all the troubleshooting steps they provided. I then asked my friend to try out the program on his computer (MacBook), to see if it was a software issue or a computer problem. As expected it instantly worked on his laptop without any issues. I determined it was a problem with my computer. I took it to Geek Squad so they could have a look. Unable to fix it, they believe its a Windows 10 issue. So now I am coming to Lenovo to see if they can fix this problem. I find it ridiculous that out of nowhere my computer can no longer detect a usb plug in from my iPhone, external harddrive, and DJ controller.  Has anybody else had these issues?Specs: Windows 10Version 1607Intel Core i78.00GB RAM64-bit operating system

Hi, I went to start using my Flex 3 this morning and discovered the following issues: -Keyboard is all messed up - most keys result in the number "6" with a few exceptions.-Mousepad won't work-Wifi won't turn on-USB port closest to the network and hdmi ports doesn't work.-Fan runs constantly Everything else appears fine (Touch Screen, running programs, other USB ports) but I have not tried the network and hdmi ports yet.. The last thing I did before shutting down last night was install icloud for Windows. I tried uninstalling it. Could this even really be a software issue? Wondering if this is something someone else has encountered.My experience tells me this is most likely a hardware issue. Lastly, it figures that the warranty expired almost exactly 3 weeks ago.

Hello, I sold this computer to my friend from my job. It is a great computer and it was at a great deal but we are having 1 issue. The SD slot is not functioning properly. When we insert the sd card into the slot the card's information does not show up. When we look in the device manager it is showing as a unknown device. I tried googling it and going through all the websites and I found some drivers for it. When we install the drive it is the exact name for the part but nothing happens. After we restart it it is still in saying unknown device. We cant use the automatic update service by right clicking the driver and selecting download from the internet because it says there was an error while installing the driver. I also saw that this was a common issue for this model. I am thinking the only way we may be able to solve this is to just get a extended warranty and send it in to the shop. My friend lives in houston and i am in denton so just be paitent if you want me to have him do something to test. The laptop is currently out of warranty. Thanks

Hello, My parents have owned a Lenovo laptop for a couple of years now. However, recently this issue showed up and I wondered whether there is a chance there is a solution to this problem which I could try myself, since the laptop its warranty already expired. If I recall correctly, the model of the laptop is the Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 2, running Windows 10. So here is the issue; the laptop has issues turning on. Oddly enough, it is not a very consistent issue. Eventually, the laptop does turn on. The problem is that this sometimes takes hours, other times the laptop appears to be able to boot instantly as it normally would. I have no idea what affects this. When pressing the power button, the keyboard backlight starts flashing. It does this until the laptop completely boots, and as I said, the amount of time this takes varies. I already tried looking for solutions on different forums, but they usually concern the issue where the keyboard backlight flashed and the laptop simply will not boot at all, which is not the case here, as it eventually does but often it takes a while.Other solutions suggested a certain amount of flashes meant a certain issue or failure. Problem here is that the amount of flashes seem to be random, so it is not as if it just keeps looping a certain amount of flashes as it varies. This leaves me puzzled as to what could be the culprit. I am not sure what to do, especially since I have not owned a Windows-based machine in a whi... Read more

Hi sherif1984 , 
 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
 
It maybe the Windows automatic update that changed previous driver , it would help if you recall the date it was working ok with the driver for a system restore to jump back . 
 
Check current version of the video driver via device manager (right click on device for property) . It may also offer rollback driver but system restore can provide better rollback as it applies with all other drivers that may have changed along with the date. 
 
Older drivers version are available from the support site on a different OS version .
Z500 is not listed on Win10 supported models that is why Win10 driver versions are not available.
 
Particular configurations of a computer model may include hardware components not compatible with Windows 10. Therefore, its upgrade to Windows 10 is not recommended.
The following listed computer models include hardware components not fully compatible with Windows 10. Therefore, upgrading these models to Windows 10 is not recommended
 
Update us how it goes.

My laptop has recently been unable to power on. Initially this started with the power button falling out of place, but that issue was fixed by a successfull re-solder of the button onto the board. In the process i seem to have pulled out 2 wires out of the speaker connector dont know if this actually affects the power cycling. Now the laptop doesnt power on still. I have tried the following: - Removing the BIOS battery, and unit battery then plugging in the AC adapter. Once i plug in the adapter the machine powers on immediately, but it never successfully starts up. The screen stays black and the machine trys to boot up but nothing even happens. This is also accompanied by the CPU fan spinning up, and then the fan turns off after about 5s. -Have tried powering on the device with just Adapter and bios battery, yeilds no results. -Tried a normal power on with all battries in, and adapter in.  Basically tried everything in this link and nothing worked https://www.urtech.ca/2015/10/solved-lenovo-flex-3-flashing-power-light-but-will-not-power-up/

Dear Lenovo, I purchased this device, Flex 3-1580, at Office Depot some time ago. At random times, it will do the following: Video goes black; Backlight remains on. Audio will stop as well. Can't tell if any fan is running or not, nor can I tell if HDD is running. Keyboard may or may not be lit, but is unresponsive. Only way to get out of it is to hold power button until it turns off, let things clear out for ten seconds, and restart. Here are the conditions under which, after some months of trying to reproduce the results consistently, this crash seems to happen: a) Does it regardless of power source, be it battery or AC adapter. b) Unit can sit on a table for hours, unused, and not crash; but it may crash - eventually (keep that in mind, it'll come in handy). c) Unit only seems to crash when I'm writing a Word document, working an Excell worksheet, or attempting something productive, like chatting with a Lenovo TS person to try and resolve this (which I've attempted three times, and all three times the thing has crashed mid-chat). I've read the forums about similar problems. I've updated the BIOS to the best of my ability. Installed the new ME software. I'm not updating the video driver because as far as I can tell that's impossible at my end, and there's no way I'm reinstalling Windows 10 if I don't have to. So let's revisit b) and c) above. Unit can sit on a table, perhaps just watching youtube or something, and nothing happens...

I recently got a Flex 3 1580. It has both the integrated Intel 520 gpu and the nVidia 940M gpu.  Some of the games I'm playing for some reason don't seem to like the Intel gpu. I know for non windows store apps you can right click on the exe and tell it which gpu to use.   As far as I know you can't do that with the windows store apps. So my question is this.  Would it be okay to disable the Intel 520 in the device manager or would that cause problems with the machine or windows?

My Flex 3 1580 started to show messages about device being plugged into head phone jack (hence the on board speaker is cut off), and unplugged randomly, and then it just all stopped, there is no sound from speaker, but the sounds were fine if I plug in a head phone. I tried "troubleshoot" on Sound, it changed driver from Realtek driver to Microsoft High definition audio driver. The sound started to show up from speakers, but the volume keeps on fluctuating up and down, even when the volume slider keeps constant. Another troubleshoot was run, and somehow the problem was fixed. However, after some time (likely due to windows auto update), speaker becomes silent again. The Realtek driver was present in device manager.  I downloaded the most recent realtek driver from Lenovo support website, instealled it, still no sound from speaker (headphone works fine all this time). Tried to run trouble shooter again to install High Def Audio driver, the broken sound comes back to speaker. I plugged in a headphone, and the sound was normal, no volume fluctuation. But the speaker went silent again, when the headphone is unplugged.  Any one has any suggestion? I'm all ears. Art

My screen has been plagued by yellowing in the corners but the digitizer is perfectly fine. I was wondering if anyone has any answers on whether or not you can just replace the lcd on laptop without replacing the whole screen/digitizer. the whole screen is 150 dollars and a lcd is just around 50-100. Also if you can point me to any part # or repair manuals that would be great. Thanks
