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.)

The internet access WIFI WAN(Miniport) drivers crashed. I need to replace them. Somewhere on the Lenovo website I thought I saw advice that stated there is disk that can be purchased to replace the old drivers. Is this true? What is the name of the product? The service center in my area stated that there is no product, and that I needed to pay them for installation plus the product. Sounds a little off.... If there is a product I can purchase to restore the seven (7) drivers, as I cannot access the internet from my computer at it's location and must go to a public computer. See attachment for what I am trying to replace.

Probably not, you have to dismantle the laptop somewhat to get to the battery :-

Plus not sure Lenovo even make a 'better' battery. I assume you meant a higher capacity battery ?

Hello, So I am looking for a genuine battery replacement for my Lenovo Y700-15ISK. I got the model of the battery which is currently installed (L14S4P22) and searched it up and to get a fair list of batteries but they didn't specify the model of laptop I have got. Most, if not all, had model numbers 15-ACZ, 15-IFI and Y700-ISE but not 15-ISK. So would it be safe to buy a battery replacement even when they are directed to be battery replacements for those Y700 models? Or do I need to find the specific model that fits with my laptops model number? Also, I've seen most of them displayed as 14.8V batteries, but I've seen my battery's voltage go over 14.8V? Or am I relating two different things? ( https://gyazo.com/8fc1e98d9f962a47003d3051202fd0e2 ). Thanks,Duke J Morgan.

 We have 280 X131e and X140e (AMD) notebooks that are 4 years old.  The Lenovo batteries in the units needed to be replaced.  Lenovo batteries cost approximately 36% more than the BTI batteries.  We order two specimen BTI batteries before placing an order.  The specimen batteries were tested over the course of a week to 10 days in the X131e and X140e systems running Windows 7.  There were no "not charging" messages during the testing.  In August of 2017, we started school with 260+ batteries installed in the X131e and X140e systems.  All appeared to be going fine until approximately 2-3 weeks in to the school year.  Each day approximately 3-5 students using the BTI batteries appeared and indicate that they charged their notebook overnight (or all weekend) but the BTI battery was still dead within the first hour of school or less.  So on any given day approximately 240 batteries are charging without issue overnight. The student notebooks that appear have the following symptoms: 1.  The BTI battery has a charge of 0-8% or less based on the information reported in both Lenovo Power Manager and Windows Power manager.2.  The units indicate in both the Lenovo and Windows power management applications that the charger and battery are present but that the battery is "not charging."3.  Known good systems, chargers and batteries have been used for all testing.  BTI has confirmed that 20 of the batteries sen...

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?

Hi-

If the recovery DVDs that you burned are bad, use the recovery partition to re-install Vista. If the recovery partition is bad, you will need to purchase replacement recovery DVDs from the system manufacturer.

HELP....I have a Lenovo G550 that is running Windows7 and has been for several months! Anyway, it will connect to the internet via wireless, but it only stays connected for a few minutes. I have other computers in the house and they remain connected, so that leads me to believe it's not the router.

Thus far I've done a few odds and ends suggested on other sites to eliminate my problem, like taking the battery out for 30 minutes, changing the power setting....I ran spybot to see if there was some bug lurking around and none of that helped.

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?
 

A:Lenovo G550 power issue

Sorry to hear this as I own a G550. My first thought after receiving and plugging power cord into it first time " what a cheesy weak and wimpy feel it had" - I've been waiting for it to crater ever since. Frankly surprised it has lasted this long. However, when it does, I'll not hesitate to tear that sucker apart to attempt a fix.

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

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.

When the manual switch is set to wifi on and i press fn+f5, nothing happens.The wifi card is recognized in windows, i have the latest drivers from lenovo support page and so on.I have tried literary everything, including windows reinstall and still nothing.When I run windows diagnostics it also says "wifi options (or something like that) are not enabled" and i tried with readycomm which says the same thing. Is this actually some kind of a hardware defect?

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

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 

A:Lenovo g550 @ and quote keys switched

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

Hello, i got this little problem with my G550 (model 20023). I decided to do some memory upgrade and bought Corsair 2x4GB MacMemory (CMSA8GX3M2A1066C7). Those modules are 1066 MHz and should be supported by GM45 onboard, and 1,5v - same as the stock Hynix 1GB+2GB modules (1GB is HMT112S6BFR6C). The problem is that when i place two new 4GB modules the laptop powers on, lights are on, HDD probably spinning, but screen stays black When i try only one 4GB module everything is working fine, with old 2GB + new 4GB it works probably fine, BIOS and W7 recognizes 6GB as it should. Any advice will be very appreciated.

Hi faktura , 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
Would you be running on a 32 bit or a g4 bit Windows 7 ?
Would using one 4GB work as tested on each slot alone?
 
Similar discussion here and here that you can also review . 
 
Update us soon as convenient

Sorry if this is in the wrong section.

So I had one of those TDSS Google Redirect virus things. It wasn't too much of a problem but it was irritating. Anti-virus things would automatically close a few seconds after I started any scan. So I figured that it would be much easier to just put it back to factory settings (I didn't have much saved any way).

So after the factory reset, during the Windows 7 Installation the mouse wasn't moving. Then I plugged in my USB mouse in and it started moving. I don't have a USB Keyboard so I used the on screen keyboard to fill out the rest. However when I try to use the inbuilt Keyboard and Touchpad they don't respond. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers for both, I have updated the BIOS, I've tried using function and F8 all to no avail.

The keyboard works in the BIOS (I can select Safe Mode, etc) but not in Safe Mode or actual Windows.

BTW the laptop is Lenovo G550 if that helps anyone.

Can someone please help? Thanks!

Just noticed there are no grippies when I unlock the Taskbar on my new (to me) Lenovo G550 laptop.

Any idea how to get them back?

A:New Lenovo G550 Laptop - no grippy when taskbar unlocked

I have a Lenovo G500 and can't recall any specific bloatware that interferes there, but it nonetheless corrupts system files which could be the problem with the taskbar unlock anonmaly.

If this is still the factory install you can try to Clean Up Factory Bloatware then check the system file integrity, but you'll have a much better install if you Clean Reinstall Windows 7.

Hello,

I have Lenovo G550 with windows 7! It shows that the Internet is connected but the IPv4 and IPv6 connectivity says no network access. I updated and reinstalled drivers, typed in some cmd command and restarted computer with no success. I also called tech support and they had me go into safe mode, the Internet didn't work there so he said it was a driver problem but wouldn't help me fix it because I didn't have two hundred dollars. Also when I connect the Ethernet cord i get the same message and the other computer in the house is working fine. Please help! Thank you
