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.

Hello. There is something wrong with my WiFi, everytime I try to use my internet connection to ie. load YouTube movie or any page it takes ages to do so. I have to HLSW installed, it has function to show latency on your connection, whenever I don't do anything it stays around 15-20ms, but strange thing happens if I try to do anything at all that requires internet connection, even loading simple page takes it up to 1500-2000ms. Oh, and there are more CPUs in home network and they are working fine, so it's not internet provider issue. I wasn't like that from beginning, it started couple of days ago, tried reinstalling drivers couple times, tried looking for solution here, couldn't find any, do any of you have any idea what should I do to fix it?

hi VinothKP,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
Can you share if you have a notification when you press FN+F5

Then try the Fn+F5 keys again
 
Hope this helps

Hey guys, I have seen a lot of members in this forum having trouble to get wifi and bluetooth working in windows 8. I found a solution to make everything work smoothly. Using windows 7 version of energy management and crap is not at all required. Just follow these steps. Before you begin installing windows, download all latest drivers from lenovo US site. Download touchpad and onekey theatre drivers from lenovo china site.Now, switch ON both wifi and bluetooth. If you keep them switched off, windows 8 will never recorgnise the presence of your bluetooth chip. Do not use windows 8 pro volume licence ISO. Instead use windows 8 pro ISO, which you downloaded from win 8 upgrade assistant (assuming you chose digital download option). This ISO has WiFi drivers needed for Z580(broadcom chip). Perform a clean install, not upgrade. Now install all the drivers, you don't have to restart for every driver install. Restart once after everything is installed. Now, you may face WiFi limited connectivity issue. Just head over to Wireless adapter properties and rollback driver. That wil solve limited connectivity problem. Done. Now enjoy windows 8.  One thing I failed to solve is, the battery meter in windows 8 does not show how many hours of battery is left. If anyone knows a fix to this, please let me know.

Hi all, I am having intermittent problems with my internet connection through Wi-Fi since a windows 10 update around December 2016. My difficulty is that it seems totally sporadic with no pattern. One day I could work on my laptop for hours with no problems, but then last night yet again in a 1 hour session I had about 3 drop outs where I get the ?Connected, No Internet? message in the Wi-Fi window. So my Wi-Fi is still connected, but websites fail to load etc. In order to remedy the problem i have to disconnect from the wifi signal and connect again. I have tried many things to solve the problem with no luck. Contacted ISP as my problems seemed to start when I moved to fibre optic broadband. But they sent me a whole new router, this did not solve the problem. Also, I don?t seem to have a problem with Wi-Fi on any other device in my house.My router can transmit 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz so I split them out to their own SSIDs as the Z580 cannot receive 5Ghz. This slightly improved things but I still get the drop outs.I tried a clean install of Windows 10 and wiped my laptop. I thought the problem was solved by this as I didn?t get any drop outs for a week or so. But sure enough over the past couple of days the random drop outs have started again.Don?t really know what else to try, quite frustrating! Can anyone suggest any steps?

Hello, fellow Lenovo users, i have a serious and reoccuring wifi problem with my z580 equipped with Broadcom 802.11 n and windows 8.1. I know many of you had the limited connection problem, and I read many forums and supposed solutions, but I think my situation is even worse if possible.  Although the connection is regularly lost, (limited) when i disconnect and reconnect, a massive freeze happens, the sreen stops, the mouse is not moving neither. Afterward, sometimes the system comes back alive. However, even if it does, no wifi is avaiable as no adapter is recognised as installed.Several restart can cure it for some minutes, than the whole procedure starts over. On linux, no such problem occured,thus I assume it is a driver problem. This is very frustrating, please help me if you have any idea.What I tried so far: reinstall the adapter from the lenovo sitereinstall it by windows updatemanually installing the broadcom multiband drivermanually installing the broadcom drivermanually installing the microsoft driverswithing of the adapter sleeping function paland3

Hi, I am having a weird wifi issue. I have been using my lenovo z580 with windows 8 for the past 8 months without any problem. But suddenly a week back my laptop's wifi started disconnecting after 5-10 mins of usage. Then if i reboot my laptop the wifi works for 5-10 mins again and disconnects. I have gone through some of the posts here and disabled the Bluetooth tray application, updated LEM, wifi drivers, but still i cant fix the issue. I have found a temporary solution. If i put my laptop into sleep mode and bring it back again, the wifi starts working. but again it will work for only 10 mins. apparently i am having to do this fix every 10 mins which is annoying. I even tried reinstalling windows 8 but still there has been no improvement.Can anyone suggest why this might be happening? do i have to go to the service center to replace any hardware?

Hello, I am now using my lenovo laptop for a while, very happy with it. The only thing is that my wifi connection is always very poor. Not nice, but I could live with it. Now, after moving in a new student flat, with an other router I cannot do anything online anymore unless I'm right on top of the router. I already saw online it could be anything to do with my atheros ar9285 network card. More people have some issues with that. Who can help me with this?? Thanks!

hi akkijoshi,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
Try Opening Device Manager
     Right click on you Broadcom Wireless adapter and select Properties
           under the advanced look for something says like WMM (Wifi Multimedia)
                 Disable that and save
                         Check if the connection will still disconnect.
 
Hope this helps

The issue is that the latest Win8.1 drivers on Lenovo support site for that model date back to 2013!!! Do you know if any NDIS 6.4 WiFi (broadcom) drivers exist for that model?BTW... I installed LSB from the support website but it does absolutely nothing gets stuck at 10%Thanks in advance.

Never over 30 min with no signal, though. (BTW, just today my laptop refused to power on. This is about 2 months after the wifi problem started. So.... you've been warned.)

Just purchsed the Lenovo Z580 at Staples for 549.99.  The Windows 8 OS is pre-installed on the machine.  Starts up fine, navigates fine, but for some reason the wireless seems to go from Connected to Limited to Connecting to No Network all in the span of ten seconds.  I can get the internet to work for about five seconds max, but after that nothing.Is it a defective machine or am I missing something?

Answer:Lenovo IdeaPad Z580 WiFi Connection issues.

Find out what wifi brand and model number then see if you can a newer driver , do a search of the net. I have the broadcom bcm4313 and i was getting the limited connection, though it was zero connection every hour, but after a search i found a driver, and it only happens maybe once a day now. I have an Win7 Z580 John.

Hi All -I recently bought a new laptop, a Lenovo Ideapad Z580. It works wonderfully (although I will admit I'm not a fan of windows 8). Problem is, I always seem to have problems connecting to my home wifi connection. Before it worked perfectly, but now I've been having problems with it, seemingly out of nowhere.All the other tablets, phones, laptops and computers at home connect to the network just fine. My laptop will detect the home network go on an endless loop of "identifying," followed by "cannot connect to network", followed by "identifying" yet again.Keep in mind though, if I connect to the wifi on campus, or at starbucks or anywhere else it works perfectly. It's JUST my home network and I can't quite put my finger on it considering that all other devices at home work fine.I updated my drivers, restarted my drivers, ran a release/renew, TCP/IP reset, restarted the router, restarted my laptop, but none of these have worked. In the end, I gave up and simply plugged in an Ethernet cable in.If anyone has any other ideas, please let me know! This is getting frustrating considering my Ethernet cable is only like, 5 feet long.Greatly appreciated 

Answer:Problems connecting to Home WIFI network Lenovo Ideapad Z580

Have a look in your device drivers then network adapters , the one for the broadcom wifi, double click on it and go to advanced then click on AP compatibility mode, the change it from high speed to broader compatibility. I don't know if this will help or not. John.

I got my Z580 less than 2 months ago when I started noticing the issue with the battery. At random times the battery will say "plugged in, not charging" and when that happens the wifi also will go in and out constantly until I try one of the fixes posted on the lenovo forums. None of them have provided a permanent fix. Sometimes the fix lasts for less than just a couple minutes. I will provide any details necessary to help fix this.

Now, I know there are like, 4 similar posts, however I've tried all of the solutions. I'm trying to boot from a chrome OS boot usb that I know works. I know I'm on secure boot and legacy is off so I go to try and boot into uefi to change that, however whenever I do it hangs for the longest time then skips straight to the onekey recovery. Tried different ways of booting to it, nothing. Tried just booting the USB drive but of course it won't boot as I'm still on secure boot with legacy off. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Answer:Lenovo Z580 Boot Issue

Have you tried booting from a DVD.  If not the its easy. When the computer starts up press F10.  It will give you boot options. Select the one qith the optical drive. While installing I advise you that you should make a partition of the Hard disk.  Well do you have SSD in your laptop. If yes then how much space it provides you?  Make some research and theen use the SSD for installing Windows.  Try this thing out. Hope it will work for you.

Hi,I have a problem with my Lenovi Ideapad Z580. Below you can see the hardware specifications. My problem is that laptop is lagging (freezing) whenever I run movies, listen to music, youtube, basically while doing anything.It happens randomly, lasts only for few moments (like a scratchy noise). I do not need to restart computer, but it's very annoying and concerning, especially because the machine is only few months old and I would say, quite powerful. Just to give you some information in regards to what I tried so far:  - I checked processes in task manager whenever lagging occures > I noticed no issues. I mean, CPU ussage, Disk Usage etc. are all under 30-40-50% (if not less)  - Checked if laptop is overheating - 100% not the case, laptop is cold, normal temperature. I had a similar problem on my old Acer that was overheating, so I would know if this would be the problem - I ran virus scan - let me say that computer came installed with McAffee Security, which I disabled and installed Avast (free), as I read that McAffee can cause Wireless connection problem (which I had by the way...) - Updated Nvidia card drivers Any help, opinion would be appreciated, as I am getting more and more concerned with this issue. LenovoItem Weight2.6 KgProduct Dimensions25 x 37.6 x 3.3 cmBatteries1 Nonstandard Battery batteries required.

Tweaks on the settings as suggested by the manufacturer might also help.

Answer:Bluetooth issue with lenovo ideapad z580

hi nairajin,
 
Welcome to the Community.
 
Is there any specific error message when you're not able to transfer anymore files thru bluetooth?
 
To verify if the bluetooth driver is causing the issue, try to:
1. navigate to Control Panel > Programs / Programs and Features and uninstall the Bluetooth Driver and reboot.
2. Open device manager and bluetooth device should look something like this:
 

 
3. Pair the device and try to send some files again
4. If the issue is solved, try to update Bluetooth Driver and observe
 
Bluetooth Driver (Cybertan, Liteon)Windows 8 32/64bit
0mbt09w8.exe321MB
 
Bluetooth Driver (CyberTan, Liteon)Windows 7 32/64bit
0mbt12ww.exe373MB
 
 
Hope this helps

Hello everybody Kindly ask you to help me out. Any help would be appriciated. The laptop Lenovo Z580 runs Windows 8.1. It has Broadcom 802.11n Network Adapter. And it doesn't want to work with Edimax BR 6428-ns router on N band. Nothing gives any result. I tried the following: - enabling WMM- enabling QoS- switching to WPA2/AES encryption (shows network is limited when using this option)- switiching to WPA2 mixed encryption (shows network is limited when using this option)- switiching to WEP encryption- disabling encryption- changing from Auto 20/40 MHZ to 20 MHZ channel width - switching to N band only in router settings (shows network is limited when using this option) The laptop works with WPA (TKIP) encryption in G band only . The max rate speed is 18 Mbit Dwnl/Upl (according to speedtest). I also tried to switch to different channel numbers. No good at all. I installed the latest drivers for Net adapter from Lenovo website. In device manager IBSS Mode shows 802.11b/g Auto without N mode. When rolling back the driver to Microsoft driver the N mode appears in IBSS mode - 802.11b/g/n Auto. However it doesn't help. Any ideas how to fix it? 

Answer:Lenovo Z580 - Broadcom 802.11n - N band issue

Hi, i'm having the same problem, did you find a solution? I downgrade the driver, it works normally a couple of hours then the computers crash! please help me, thanks!

The right side hinge of my z580 is giving issues. The laptop lid does not close properly. The lenovo support denied warranty saying that my ADP is over. However I do not understand how is this related to ADP. Seeing the huge number of complaints it is definitely a manufacturing defect. My bottom case was replaced once already during ADP.Please suggest how to take this further. I have been recommending lenovo to everyone, but I dont think I will do that

Dear Lenovo, It's a request to kindly understand the matter as I had a total frustrating updation procedure from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10 Home For the updating process I would blame Microsoft and I informed them about the same but than I would like to know that why the Qualcomm A956x Wireless Network does not work with Windows 10,I tried everything possible from downloading the 64 bit drivers and even followed the instructions from Microsoft but nothing of sort has proved to be beneficial as I had to roll back to Windows 8.1 just after 1 day I upgraded to Windows 10 laptop was purchased this year and its not fair that I can't use Windows 10 as the adpater isn't functioning! My PC became quite useless as Lan, Wlan and Ethernet all were missing from the computer but immediately after restoring back to Windows 8.1 everything works perfect

Hello! I just bought a Lenovo B580 59-339463 (i5 3210m Ivy Bridge)  laptop, installed Win7, installed all drivers on the dvd (including the 3 wlan drivers - intel/realte/broadcom - not sure this was a smart move) only to find that I am unable to connect usign the wifi. I've been browsing round the web for the past 2 hours, but nothing seemed to help.WiFi is turned on (in BIOS, in device manager, in adaptor settings in fn+f5) The WiFi connections just don't show up in the list of network connections When diagnosing the WiFI connection I receive a message informing me that the "Wireless adapter is experieincing problems" and then this message: "There might be a problem with the driver for the Wireless Network Connection adapter. Windows couldn't automatically bind the IP protocol stack to the network adapter." Intel ProSet/WiFi tools -> Diagnostics -> Hardware Test FAILED. The wireless adapter is disabled or uninstalled                                                                         Software Test PASSED Since i'm rather new at all this, never having owned a laptop before, I've completely ran out of ideas. So I turn to you, maybe you know what to make of all this. Thanks!        

Answer:Lenovo B580 WiFi issue / Wireless connections not showing up, WIFI turned ON

Hi
 
Welcome To Lenovo Community
 
You may please try  
 
    Enter BIOS by tapping F2 Load setup defaults  
   Download and install the latest wireless driver from the Lenovo Support site 
   Ensure the wifi switch is ON prior to installing the drivers.  
   Download and install the Lenovo power manager and hotkey drivers - these are integral to allowing the    
    FN+F5 hotkey to enable the wifi card
    Uninstall Lenovo ReadyConn' software if it is pre-loaded  
 
     Right click my computer > manage > device management > network adapters > find your wireless
     Adapter > double click > on power management tab, make sure "Allow the computer to turn off this     
     Device   to save power" unchecked
 
 
 
Hope This Helps
Cheers!!!

Answer:(z580) Just wondered what lenovo software will work with the z580 ?

hi mikee77,
 
The Lenovo Z580 comes with these lenovo pre-installed apps:
 
Lenovo OneKey RecoveryLenovo OneKey TheaterLenovo Cloud Storage by SugarSyncLenovo Energy ManagementLenovo Companion
 
The Lenovo Companion is like an app store the features:
 

Third-Party Apps and Ads
Lenovo products, Tutorials, Application showcases, Lenovo accessories information, Lenovo Cloud, and a link to Lenovo blogs and articles

Most apps listed on the Lenovo Companion will work on the Z580 as long as it meets the system requirements (i.e. If an app is made only for Touchscreen models, then you will need to get the non-touchscreen version or if there's a Utility app that senses temperature on a specific model, make sure Z580 is on the supported models).
 
Click here for more information on the preloaded softwares on the Z580 and click here for more information on the Lenovo Companion.

before I had win7. But I switched on win8 I can not turn on wifi or BT.and I do not have to turn it magager WiFI and BT. lenovo does not have a driver for it 

Answer:Z580 windows 8 WIFI, BT

You must install the Windows 7 version of Lenovo Energy Manager for wifi or bluetooth to work.  The Windows 8 version does not allow you to use fn+f5.  Once you install the Windows 7 version, you can push fn+f5 and activate wifi or bluetooth.  There will be compatibility warnings, but it is the only way to turn on wifi and bluetooth at this time.  Do not reinstall the Windows 8 version until Lenovo updates the software, because you will eventually lose wifi or bluetooth again.  Also, you may need to use a program like Universal Extractor for the install files to extract properly. I hope this helps.  It took me lots of searching to find someone who figured this out.

Hi there, I recently got the Z580 and since I've had it, there have been problems with connectivity. The main problem is that it disconnects after going to sleep, as well as sometimes not connecting automatically when I turn it on. When either of these things happen, it won't connect at all (even with troubleshooting - windows thinks it's a problem with the router but it definitely isn't) until I restart the laptop, and sometimes I have to do this twice. I have already changed the power settings on the network adaptors to prevent them from turning themselves off in sleep mode, and I've changed the roaming tendency to aggressive but it hasn't solved the problem. Any ideas? FYI, I am not very knowledgeable in this area, so I would appreciate clear instructions if any are given. Thanks very much.

Type msconfig then hit enter
Go to startup tab and click on Open task manager,
You will have a list of startup items and look for Bluetooth Tray Application
right click on that and choose Disable.

You can double check the compatibility on this sheet/post:

Answer:ideapad z580 wifi not working properly with windows 8

hi yashikabajaj08,
 
Welcome to the Forums.
 
You're issue might be similar to this thread.
 
If you have gotten the problem after updating the wireless driver either from the Intel website or windows update, try to  rollback the driver from the previous version or perform a System Restore to undo the changes that were made.
 
If the above doesn't apply to you, can you provide the wireless driver of your wifi module and try to boot into Safe Mode with Networking to isolate if there's a third party security software that might be blocking your connection.
 
 
Let me know your findings,

Answer:Wifi and bluetooth is not working after upgarding windows 7 home basic to windows 8,,Z580

Hi hemantrocks1990,
 
First lets check if the drivers for the Wifi and Bluetooth is installed properly under the Windows 8 environment.  On the desktop press the windows key + c, then click on settings, then click on control panel.  Under control panel switch to large icons for view and go to system.  Under system we will have device manager available.
 
Please check if you can see the category Bluetooth, and the wireless adapter under Network adapters category.  If they are present, go to the properties of wireless adapter and check if the driver version is the latest and if the drivers are installed properly.  The latest Bluetooth driver version for Windows 8 is 12.0.0.1671/8.0.0.206 released 10/24/2012. Here is the link for the drivers.  The latest Wireless driver version for Windows 8 15.5.0.42/6.30.59.26/10.0.0.67 released 10/24/2012. Here is the link for the drivers.  
 
If the drivers are installed properly, then we have to check if we are able to turn on and off the bluetooth or the wireless adapter.  Hit Fn+F5 and see if an interface comes up that gives you radio buttons to turn off or turn on your wireless and bluetooth adapters.  If no interface comes up, you may need to install the Lenovo Energy Management program to enable the hotkeys for turning on bluetooth and the wireless. Here is the link for the Lenovo Energy Management program.

Answer:Hey I have a WiFi adapter (Intel n 2200) problem on z580 windows 8 x64

hi aborida,
 
If this is the original Intel Wireless N2200 that came with the PC, can you try to:
 
1. Reboot the computer and repeatedly tap F2 to boot into the BIOS, when you're in, press F9 to load BIOS to defaults and press F10 to save and exti BIOS.
 
2. If you get the same error, try to Access the Startup Settings and choose Disable driver signature enforcement - if this fixes the problem, it's probably due to a not digitally signed driver, try to follow this guide.
 
If the above steps doesn't work, the BIOS might be blacklisting this wifi adapter as discussed in this thread or simply getting defective (you will need to contact lenovo for service to get this wifi card replaced).
 
 
Hope this helps.

Answer:lenovo Z580 install windows 7

Hello and welcome,
 
You are probably getting that message because you are running the install in legacy mode but the the HDD is GPT partitioned.
 
You could boot in UEFI mode (not secure boot) and run the install.
 
You can run the install as you are in legacy mode but drop to DISKPART and convert the drive to MBR. It might also be sufficient to just select the advanced partitioning options and remove all the partitions.
 
http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_7-windows_install/windows-cannot-be-install...
 
Either way you'll lose the on-disk recovery options.  Don't lose that USB drive.

Answer:Lenovo Z580 Upgrading From Windows 7 to 8.1

hi wwhsgrad2002,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
If you are planning to upgrade from Windows 7 and thinking about having a backup that would let you go back to WIndows 7 anytime,
 
  If I were in your post, Since I still have Windows 7 I can use the One key Recovery 7 which still has the Create Recovery Disc option.
 
   I would create a set of Recovery Disc then proceed with the upgrade,
          It is hard to say that the recovery Option built to the hard drive may or may not have an issue after OS upgrades.
 
So while in Windows 7, Create you Windows 7 Recovery Disc then proceed with your upgrades.

I've waited a long time before installing Win 10 on my IdeaPad Z580, but was finally persuaded to try it out with a complete clean install. Thankfully, after a few teething troubles, it now works fine, except for one thing - the camera. I can't find a driver for EasyCam with Win 10 on the Lenovo site, so before I commit to buying a separate camera I would like to ask if anyone has any suggestions for solving this problem so I can use Skype properly. I've tried everything suggested on the Microsoft Win 10 site without succcess. Many thanks in anticipation!

I've waited a long time before installing Win 10 on my IdeaPad Z580, but was finally persuaded to try it out with a complete clean install. Thankfully, after a few teething troubles, it now works fine, except for one thing - the camera. I can't find a driver for EasyCam with Win 10 on the Lenovo site, so before I commit to buying a separate camera I would like to ask if anyone has any suggestions for solving this problem so I can use Skype properly. I've tried everything suggested on the Microsoft Win 10 site without succcess. Many thanks in anticipation!

Has anyone who's been experiencing networking issues on 8.1 managed to fix them yet? I have a lenovo z580 that came preinstalled with windows 8I could use wired or wireless connection perfectly on win 8. I then upgraded to 8.1, had so many networking issues I downgraded to win 7. On win 7 it worked perfectly again (used it for 8 months with no issue). Dual boot win 7 alongside various distros of linux, after some issues with drivers at the beginning linux also works perfectly. Decided to give windows 8 another go yesterday. Clean installed windows 8 (hard drive reformatted), networking is working perfectly. Updated to 8.1 and it has limited connectivity on wifi immediately, installing the latest drivers from lenovo website, does NOT fix the issue, (had to use hp drivers to get any internet connection at all.) So with the new wireless drivers it only half works, I can use the internet but I get constant time-outs and disconnects on any website (again everything worked perfectly on win8 and win7), even typing this I'm getting errors as the page updates. If I ping my own router you will get succesful replys with occasional timeouts (between 10% and 20% of packets are lost) I have the exact same problem when using a wired connection. I can see from other forum topics this issue is affecting many lenovo products, and many from other manufacturers as well. Does anyone have a solution? Do Lenovo have a solution? EDIT&n... Read more

I tried to recover my PC to factory settings using the CD's that I had created with OneTouch Recovery software. However the recovery failed - perhaps due to scratches in the disk.  My laptop came with Windows 7 Home Basic (64 bit). A question that I have is whether there is a way to get a copy of the OS (I have the serial key with me on a sticker pasted under the laptop). I would really appreciate any help. Thank you.

Answer:WIndows 7 Home Basic download for Lenovo z580

hi Lamb_1803,
 
Welcome to the Forums.
 
As an alternative to the Recovery Discs that you created, have you tried pressing the OneKey Recovery button to restore the system?
 
If that doesn't work, your options are:
1. Call lenovo to obtain a copy of the recovery disc (recommended)
2. Create a Windows 7 Universal Installation Disc and use it to install Win7 Home Basic.
 
In an event that the disc is still not being read (possibly due to a defective ODD lens), consider creating a Bootable Windows 7 Installation USB Flash Drive to install the OS.
 
 
Regards

Hi, i Have recently updated my Ideapad Z580 to windows 8. While using the power management application i came to know it misses out the modes as it was in Windows 7. Its does not even shows up the visual display when you press the Thermal management key.  I have to go to the hidden icon tab to select the Energy management, wherein there are options which i cannot understand what are they use for like Intelligent power saver. The options provided are very different from the ones provided in the Windows 7 version. Also, the function keys & other keypad layout got changed when i upgraded to Windows 8. Like the function for turning the Wi-Fi & bluetooth in windows 7 got changed. To write special character (@) changed. its now typing (") when upgraded to windows 8. Function key feature (Fn+F4) not working in windows 8. Can anyone tell me is the windows 8 Energy management application better than the windows 7 one or viceversa. if not, is lenovo trying to upgrade the features in the windows 8 version of energy management application & other applications like in the windows 7 ones.   Thank you.

With this stick divided HDD laptop on all the necessary partitions . The relevant sections of the disk were copied the required One Key Rescue 8 files. Then in partition "Windows8_OS" installed the operating system (Windows 8). Operating system is functioning normally, all partitions and files on the site, but One Key Rescue 8 doesn't work (when you click on "Novo" and select "System recovery" starts normal loading the operating system.I can't understand what the error. How do I fix this? As in my case, to make the system OKR8 functioned?

Answer:Deployment OKR8 on the laptop Lenovo z580 with Windows 8

Dear Alabama60,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community,
 
Unfortunately Sir, the OKR Program and Key only works if the machine came preloaded with windows. So in your case the Recovery Option is the Novo Menu will not work.

Hey everyone, Recently, my Lenovo Y50-70 started acting up. All of a sudden, i could not connect to a WiFi network. Whenver i check devicemanager, i see this "other devices -> networkcontroller" which has a yellow triangle with an exclamation point in it. So i figured... this must be the problem.  Now whenever i check properties on this device, i get alot of stuff that i dont even know what it means. But the path directory to this device should be (it says this in the properties) ..\Driver\ACPI.  I dont really know what to do now... should i just delete this device and reinstall? because i could not find any ACPI drivers for my device. If anyone could help me out, that'd be great. Since i can not stay connected to this ethernet cable for ever.I will respond to any messages, so if anyone tries to help me, we can find whats up. Thanks,Yves

Answer:Lenovo Y50-70 WiFi issue

It sounds like the driver needed by Windows to communicate with your WiFi adapter has become corrupted, so you need to go to Lenovo support site here, select the correct Windows operating system for your system, use the "Pick a Component" pulldown to select "Networking: Wirelesss LAN" and download the driver and install the latest driver.     I am not sure which one of the two drivers listed you need, but just try installing both of them, since only one will work, and the other will just fail to install. If all else fails,Right click on the network controller under "other devices",Select Uninstall,Check the box to "Delete the driver software for this device: (if offered), and then press OK.Reboot if prompted to do so, but if no reboot is required, just right click on any device in Device Manager and select "scan for hardware changes".    Windows will then scan for the card, and attempt to install the driver. Good Luck,

Hi I'm trying to get the hands free mode working in the food app on windows 8.1 It was working at some point but I removed permissions across the board and even disabled my webcam (in a mild fit of paranoia). Anyway I've re-enabled the webcam And the camera app works perfectly fine,I opened the food app and allowed it permission to access the camera and it still won't pick up the camera in handsfree mode. All that happens is that the GUI changes but the camera doesn't switch on (judging by the light) and motion doesn't work. Oh and it says hands free mode is off. What's up? How can it enter the GUI and not be in hands free mode?

Answer:Lenovo U460 WiFi issue

Hi cjquines,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
The WIFI Device is not detected physically.
 
Try opening BIOS
     Turn ON the computer and start pressing F2
     Computer should enter BIOS
      Under configuration.. look for WLAN settings and make sure that it is Enabled.

 
 
Press F10 to save and exit and your device should be back.
 
If this setting is Already Enabled and still in device manager you can't find the Wireless, You might need to check the Actual WLAN card, maybe reseat it.
 
Hope this helps
Cheers!

I have recently bought a Lenovo C340, and have encountered a slight problem with wifi.  My ISP is BT and I have a dual band BT Homehub 4 which uses 2.4ghz and 5ghz frequencies.  The preferred frequency for my set up should be 5ghz, but the Lenovo only detects and connects to the 2.4ghz frequency.  My tablet can connect to both frequencies and so it seems to be an issue with the Lenovo rather than with the Homehub.  The only advice given by BT is to give each frequency a different SSID, which I have done, but the Lenovo still doesn't detect the 5ghz signal.   Would anyone know if there is simple way of overcoming this issue, or should I just content myself with the 2.4ghz connection. Any help appreciated.

So may try changing the power plan to high performance when in battery mode. Of course this will cause a faster drain in your battery.

Hello NikosGr, Windows 8 is still a new Operating System, therefore glitches still need to be worked out in future updates. Make sure to go to Lenovo's support website and see if there are any drivers for those devices for Windows 8. Try the Windows 7 drivers too as some of those will work with Windows 8. As for the Broadcom card being slow, they are decent cards, but not the best. I've had issues with mine when I first got my laptop. Hope that helps.

Unfortunately machine wasn't recognizing the drivers as I checked in devmgmt.msc, I couldn't see the drivers there, I also checked the services.msc and the wifi was on start and automatic. Later I uninstalled the ReadyComm but still it didn't help me at all. It's just i can't get my Wifi on this machine since i formated my lapton. Please help if u any suggestion..
