Preferred Solution: Does Lenovo G470 supports OpenCL???

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.)

Answer: Does Lenovo G470 supports OpenCL???

Is there anyone who has experience on this???Help will be really appreciated. Thanks!

Question: Lenovo G470

Hi, I recently started having certain issues with my Lenovo G470 laptop. Firstly, whenever I put my laptop into charging, the power button starts blinking. Besides this, my laptop is heating up really bad!!! I cannot understand what the issue is, and it would be great if I could get a quick reply back regarding what the problem might be. Thanks

Answer:Lenovo G470

Dear Jithin
 
Welcome in lenovo community
 
Have you check the battery status when you connect the charger ?
 
if you feel that the machine is heating to much you can install an application called Core Temp from this link :                            http://www.alcpu.com/CoreTemp/ 
 
Please send us a screen shot once you install and open it 
 
Waiting our reply
 
Thanks

Hi. I own a lenovo g470 ideapad. the problem is that my DVD RW optiarc ad-7580s drive appears to my system as a CD drive and cannot write on blank DVD's or CD's but it reads the content of a CD or DVD drive. I already went to the store where I bought it and they already replace my DVD drive from samsung to optiarc ad-7580s. After the reformat, its all working well, but when I updated windows 7 and applied all the updates, the same problem occurs again. What could be the problem? please help. thanks in advance

Answer:Lenovo G470 trouble

hey desynch,from what you have mentioned; i believe an update from windows 7 is overriding a file/driver that identifies the Optiarc as an optical writer.i recommend getting in contact with optiarc and to check with them if they have any patch for this.

Answer:G470 - Bluetooth not working after installing Windows 10 on G470

Hi ashu2000 , 
 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
Checking on the Lenovo supported systems list for Windows 10 Upgrade ,  "not listed, it hasn?t been tested for Windows 10 upgrade and is not supported. " for the G570 .
 
Same reasons why on the support site , drivers for windows 10 is not available. 
 
There are claims that it works ok but some have reported devices and apps not working after the upgrade. 
You may check related threads here . 
 
Would there be any yellow or black down arrow marks on the device manager . 
If that is the case , then you may want to try checking the hardware ID to download specific driver directly from the manufacturer if the Windows 8.1 version driver would not help.
Example for Broadcom Bluetooth 4.0 Driver or use windows updates to install appropriate drivers
 
On device manager , you may also use built in drivers in Windows 10  doing upgrade drivers and, browse on this pc , let me pick option, and choose recommended ones on the list .  
 
Hope this helps. 
 
 
Regards

Hi!
 
I am discovering glitches, and tend to blame it on installing Windows 10 on G470. (I now know it is not supported!). When I open 2-3 apps in succession, or when I move the cursor too fast, or whatever, suddenly things come to a standstill. If I press enter repeatedly, I get a message - Youtube is not responding or Word is not responding etc. But if I patiently wait a few seconds, it goes online again, as if nothing had happened.
 
I had not noticed it earlier, or it has become too frequent after Windows 10 - I don't know. I read a post about touchpad freezing on B50-80. Is this similar?

Answer:Lenovo G470 Having Booting Problems

hi Raghueee24,
 
Welcome to the Forums.
 
Can you try to: 
1. Remove all connected peripherals (printer, usb flashdrive, ethernet cable, etc.)
2. Turn the computer ON and when the lenovo logo appears, boot into the BIOS by tapping F2.
3. In the BIOS, go to the Boot Tab and verify if the HDD is set to first boot then press F10 to save and exit.
 
If you get the same issue after doing the steps above then most likely there's a problem on the HDD (possible bad sectors). You can verify this by doing a diagnostic on the HDD.
 
For the diagnostics:
a. Download the the UBCD ISO
b. Burn the ISO using imgburn
c. Insert the CD that you just created into the defective computer and reboot
d. Upon reboot, continuously press F12 and boot from the ODD/CD-DVD
 
To burn the diagnostic softwre on a flashdrive, follow this guide
 
If you find any errors, you will need to change the HDD. If don't have a recovery or restore disc, you can obtain one by contacting lenovo support.
 
 
Hope this helps

I cant change my fan speed from any programs OR THE BIOS My bios is really useless there is nothing in there the bios is a inysdeh20 and i seriously have useless things to do in there. any other way i can atleast change the fan speed to see if it will work? 

Answer:Lenovo G470 change fan speed

Hi Nightdash,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community!
 
I understand your concern as this option is not available the only way to make the FAN run in good speed is by switching the power plan to ?High Performance? mode and then you can choose fan control modes in your Windows Power Plan settings. Select the power icon in the notification area and click "More power options." Click "Change plan settings," then "Change advanced power settings." In the ?Processor power management? submenu, you will find the "System cooling policy" option, if your laptop is equipped with heat sensors. Selecting "Active" runs your fan more frequently, at lower temperatures; "Passive" leaves the fan off until the laptop reaches a higher temperature. Below is the link for the same:

Hello, I recently got a laptop G470 with Windows 7 Home Basic. I wanted to install Linux too but made some mistake and I ended up losing everything on the harddrive. So I no longer have Windows 7 or any other partition to restore it from. So is there any way to reinstall it? Any ISO I could download? For instance, can I install any version of Windows 7 Home Basic and then use my Product Key to activate it. Will it work?Thank you, Laurent

Answer:Reinstalling Windows 7 on a Lenovo G470?

Hello and welcome,
 
I guess it's too late to say burn your recovery media
 
You should be able to download a Win7HB ISO (either 32 or 64 bit), burn, install, and activate using your existing key.  You may need to use the telephone option to complete activation.

[edit] HB, not HP - and I don't know if the above link includes Home Basic.  Hmmm.
 
[more edit] That link isn't likely to help with Home Basic.  Sorry I mis-read your post.  Better follow yigit's advice.

I have to then shutdown the laptop by holding the power button down till it shutsdown then turn it on again in order to use my laptop. This happens often after I shutdown the laptop, but NOT when I restart, or boot from hibernation. I haven't noticed any BSODs. This problem has been there since I bought the laptop.

Answer:Lenovo G470 ram upgrade should i choose 8GB or 16 GB?

hi pilot911,
 
Welcome to the Forums.
 
Looking at page 27 of the HMM, the G470 can take up to:
 
DDR3-1066/1333MHz SODIMM socket x 2 (max 4GB per slot).
 
If you're planning to max it out then you will need a 4GBx2 (8GB kit). If you already have a single 4GB stick though then you just need to get another 4GB.

I encountered the BSOD with the problem about atikmpag.sys It seems like I made a wrong choice about deleting it, (solution from internet searching)  and now the Display Adapters doesn't work anymore as you can see in the pictures  after deleting the atikmpag.sys during safe mode, It somehow resolved the problem about the BSOD and my laptop are finally starting properly now the problem is about the resolution, it's not the same anymore, it's too low and somehow the screen is blurry, as you can see at the Graphics section, the maximum resolution I can only choose is 1024 x 768, which is supposed to be 1366 x 768 (HD) if i'm not mistaken,   I need your help on how to fix this I hope i can turn it back to normal., I don't have a CD installer (if it is supposed to have one) to re-install it, and about downloading from other sites I'm a little bit concerned about that so I haven't tried it yet.. and it seems like Lenovo has its own installer... Pls help ASAP

Answer:Lenovo G470 atikmpag.sys problem

hi jm9327,
 
Welcome to the Lenovo Forums.
 
The G470 with a dual GPU (Intel+AMD), uses a muxless driver (this is a custom driver that switches the discrete AMD Graphics to the Intel Graphics to save power). If you have installed a different driver, this may cause system instability (including BSOD).
 
If you're running on Windows 7, try the following::
 
1. Follow this guide on how to disable automatic driver installation.
2. Install these drivers in order (reboot if necessary)
   (1st)  - Intel Onboard Graphics Driver for Windows 7 (64-bit)
   (2nd)  - AMD Video Driver for Windows 7 (32-bit, 64-bit)
 
When finished, check if the yellow exclamation marks are gone under Device Manager > Display Adapters and observe the screen resolution adjustment and BSOD occurrence.
 
 
Let me know how it goes.
 
Regards

Hello, I just want to ask, how will I know if my lenovo g470 is fully charged based on the led light indicators. It is fully discharged when I plugged it into the charger. When I plugged it in, the led indicator turned orange but after a few minutes, it became white and occasionally blinks. I just want to know what color will it turn into when it is fully charged. I cannot find the answer from the user manual. Thank you

Answer:Lenovo g470 charging time

hi lorenzocarada,
 
Welcome to the Lenovo Forums.
 
When the battery is fully discharged and you plugged it in, the battery LED light will become:
 
Blinking Amber if the battery is being charge with a remaining battery power of less than 5% or between 5%-20%.
Solid Amber if the computer is operating in a battery power between 5%-20%
Blinking White if the battery is being charge with a remaining power between 20%-80%
Solid White if the remaining battery power is above 80% or the computer is operating in battery power between 20%-80%
 
You can find these information on page 30 of the hardware maintenance manual.
 
 
Hope this helps.

Answer:Lenovo G470 battery connection lost

Hi Mkmm9,
               
Welcome to Lenovo Community!
 
As per the query we understood that you are facing an issue with the battery charging.
 
Please disconnect all the external devices connected to the system. Also remove battery and adapter as well.
 
Now press and hold the power button for 30 seconds and turn on the machine and check for the issue.
 
 Remove the battery from your laptop and check the battery connection "pins" in the laptop. The pins are the vertical slots in the center of the battery tray. See if perhaps one or more may have been bent enough to not make contact with the battery pins. Also check to see if lint, dirt or some other foreign matter has gotten between the pins on either the battery or the laptop. Have you tried the battery from the other laptop? If a different battery doesn't work, your problem is with the laptop pins. One or more may have broken or become disconnected. Try all possible combinations to narrow down the trouble spot.
 
Hope this helps! Do post us back for further queries.
 
Best regards,
 
Ashwin.S

All of sudden, I couldn't plug in my charger to the charger port.  Later I realized that the pin went in that the charger can't contact the pin inside.  I believe the charger port should be replaced but I am out of warranty.  Can anyone suggest what is best action to be taken?  My guess is to call Lenovo and order the part and take it to like Geek Squad.  I will take any advice.Thank you so much for your help!!!Eunice

Answer:Lenovo G470 Charger port not working

Hi eunzpraise,
 
Yes you can get the part from resellers like this one.
If you comfortable replacing the part, this is a reference for you on how to proceed with it.
 
If not,
 
You can purchase the part and YES bring it to a Third-party repair center and have them replace it.
If it is Geek Squad, I suggest you call them first, You will need to know if it is OK to bring you own part replacement or it has to come from them.
 
Hope this helps
Cheers!

Why everytimes i plug-in the AC it only charge 50% batteries..That the max..

so is it normal? or any problem to my lenovo? before this it charge 100% but after i install new windows 7 ultimate it only charge 50%...please help~

sorry for my bad english~ ASIAN PEOPLE BAD AT ENGLISH

Answer:Batteries Charge only 50% for Lenovo G470, is it normal??

Which version of Windows you have shouldn't affect how your battery is charged up so it's probably just coincidence.

You may be needing a new battery. Do you have anyone nearby who can check the battery for you?

Answer:Urgent help: Lenovo g470 boot up problem T_T

Hi joshua114 and welcome to the Community,
 
One thing to look for is to go into the advanced settings in your power options and open the sleep heading.  See if hybrid sleep is enabled.  If it is, turn it off and your F2 and F12 "should" work again.
 
Windows 8 never shuts down completely by default.  That's one reason it boots so fast because it's not really booting, it's just resuming from sleep.

Answer:Lenovo G470 Windows 10 not starting and keep rebooting

Hi David,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
I?m sorry to hear that your G470 Laptop is not booting to Windows 10, 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 try to access the BIOS menu press F2 when the Lenovo logo appears on the screen while the computer is starting up.
Then to reset the BIOS to its defaults click on ?F9? Key and select YES.
Now Click on ?F10? Key to safe the changes that are done in BIOS, restart the computer and check if the issue is resolved.

 
Hope this helps. Let me know your findings.
 
Regards,
Shashi Kumar

After spending an inordinate amount of time searching the internet about my problem, and then contacting Lenovo (who told me it was hardware and I needed to return all of the laptops I bought), I managed to magically find the solution to my problem.  Since it wasn't documented elsewhere on the internet, I thought I'd create a post for it here. The problem I was having was that my Lenovo G470 laptop did not display Press F2 to Enter Setup during the boot process, and because of this, no amount of hammering the F2 button would allow access to the BIOS.  I attempted all of the standard fixes, pulled the battery, held power down for 30 seconds, removed the HDD -- nothing would cause this to appear.  Since it was happening on all 3 of the G470s we just purchased, I didn't believe it was hardware.  I reached out to Lenovo Premium Support, and after about 3 minutes of discussion, "Paul" informed me that all three machines were defective and would have to be sent back in for repair, and it would take 4-6 weeks for repair and diagnosis.   As I had been noodling around with the machines for a few days, ONE of the three ended up showing the bios options during the boot process.  At that point, I had been hitting just about every single key on the keyboard during the boot process, so I couldn't identify what it was that I did that caused the options to appear.  A little more troubleshooting and I figured it out: Lenovo G470 machines equip...

I configured the Energy Management for Optimum Battery Lifespan but every time after I use it without Power Cord the EM configuration reverses to Max battery charge duration (My version is in Spanish so I dont remember the exact English phrasing). So next time I use the power cord the battery fully charges to 100% and that is what I don't want I want the battery to charge only to 45 to 50% without having to go and change this option every time I use the notebook without the power cord.

Hi everyone, I'm from Argentina, so I apologize for my english.My problem with Lenovo G470 is this: every 10, 12 days it shutdowns and can't use it for a time. I'm doing anything (listening to music, writting a text, etc) or sometimes I'm afk and just doing nothing and it happens anyway. And then, for a time it's impossible to start windows. I turn on the laptop and the Lenovo logo appears, but then just shuts down.Maybe 4-5 hours later it starts to work ok again. Im not sure aboout this because when this happen i usually leave it there and come back the next day.I've been reading a lot of posts in this forum about similar problems, but I couldn't find this exact same problem that I have.Also, this happens on battery or plugged in. Is the same. Another weird thing that occurs sometimes is that when I'm using it on battery and I turn it off, the laptop shutdown, but the on/off button light doesn't turns off. I need to plug it in to solve this.I don't know if could be related, but I replaced the W7 home basic with the ultimate version. While I had it with home basic this didn't happened, but it was a short time (2 days) so I couldn't determine if this is related. Anyway I have the recovery CDs if a probable solution would be that.I've read here about solutions like flashing the bios. I didn't do it but I could try it if you think it could work. I don't know if there are new updates. The truth is I'm a total newbie on flashing the bios.In conclusion, any help you could give me w... Read more

Answer:does my Lenovo y510p supports Samsung 850 msata ssd

I don't think that one will work in the y510p's M.2 slot. I found this image which shows the size difference.http://imgur.com/tYBSjUMAs far as I know, what would be compatible with that slot is an M.2 2242 SSD.Like these ones:https://www.amazon.com/ADATA-Ultrabook-Compatible-Excellent-ASP600NS34-128GM-C/dp/B012ASBZEO/ref=sr_...Orhttps://www.amazon.com/Transcend-256GB-MTS400-Solid-TS256GMTS400/dp/B00KLTPUG4/ref=pd_sim_147_34?_en...I'm also not entirely sure if the y510p can boot from the m.2 slot without some kind of special software/tinkering.In the course of reserching to solve my own y510p issues I've read quite a bit about the y510p, I do recall the recommendation someone got on a different gaming performance focused message board was that the best performance would be achieved by mounting an SSD(non-specific about type) into a 2.5" adapter caddy(or using an SSD in the 2.5" format) and using it in place of the original HD. (They also suggested using the original HD as a second drive in an ultrabay caddy, which might be an option if you aren't also using the ultrabay for a second videocard for SLI)I've read mixed results when attempting to use Windows 10 with the y510p, ranging from almost no issues(using Win8.1 drivers) to completely non-functional; Win10 isn't officially supported by Lenovo on the y510p. However Windows 8.1 seems to be quite stable on the system in my experience, and I think it would be suitable for most needs.

Answer:Thrincentre M55e Lenovo motherboard supports virtualization?

The processor in your M55e desktop [Intel Core 2 Duo E4500] does not support Intel VT [hardware virtualization]. First I would like for you to check the BIOS configuration for an option to enable/disable VT. It may not be present as you don't have a processor which supports this feature, or it may be grayed out. If you are no longer under warranty and capable of removing and replacing processors, you can purchase a VT capable processor and install it yourself [the BIOS must support this feature also]. If you are still under warranty, I would suggest to leave the computer as-is and not modify/upgrade the components.

Answer:Is LENOVO G50-70 442243 supports Intel Vertualization Technology

I would suggest running Linux as the primary OS as it has much stronger support for virtual hosts over Windows and is much more efficently with virtual services than is Windows.  I have been running OpenSUSE, Ubuntu Server and Mint on my various machines and found them to be trully responsive and completely stable.  I have used Wine, and others under Linux to run Windows Software and even emulate Windows 95 and DOS 6.22 successfully.

Answer:Lenovo R500 2714: Does this supports dual chaneel?

Hi pratap, Yes, your R500 supports dual channel. In the few comparisons I've seen online, dual channel per se offers minimal performance improvement over single channel. And if you're running a 32bit OS, ~3GB is all it can make use of anyway. So your adding a single 2GB stick looks like a good option.
