Preferred Solution: Z580 - My Networks not showing up (neither wifi nor LAN) for Lenovo Z580

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.)

Hi all, I have just done a full clean install of windows 8 on my z580.   I have now managed to get everything installed and working normally except that my wifi card does not detect any networks. I know that the router is fine as other devices in my house can detect them but I cannot. I have made sure that the WLAN is enabled in the BIOS and the windows device manager says that my card is working normally. I just cant see any networks.  The really confusing thing is that I have tried using a seperate USB wifi adapter and had exactly the same problem - seems to be working but no networks.  I had been attempting to roll back to windows 7 but couldnt do it so went back to 8, but in the process I made a bit of a mess of things. I deleted all the partitions, including the OEM and system reserved partitions. I realise I probably shouldn't have done this but its done now. Could this be related to the problem? Many thanks in advance.Tom

As the title says, just wondered if theres any lenovo software the works with the z580 ? lenovo companion on windows 8 offers some stuff but its listed as u series ect ? cheers for replys inadvance,mike

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).

Hope this helps.

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. 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 All, after long digging around, I turn to you for help. I seem to have same problem that half of the internet, but I'm still far from solution As you can probably duess I got my Smart TV finally and wanted to profit some tech (namely Miracast) but my Z580 has NDIS 6.3 (I checked) which is not compatible. 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.

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!

I have the P580. I thought it was my house's internet! (I rent).I lose internet, then uninterrupted wifi for 30 min to 2 hours, then lose signal again for anywhere from 5 to 30 min. 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.)

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?

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.

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 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.

Answer:z580 - Which password to use if laptop is in safe mode ideapad z580 ?

hi akshu_13,
 
Welcome to the Forums.
 
If you're running on Windows 7 or Windows 8/8.1, you should use the same password that you've set on your account.
 
If you're running on Windows XP, by default, you will see an additional Administrator account and the password is set to none. If you'll be using your own account and not the Administrator one then you should use the same password like in normal Windows.
 
Note:
Windows 8/8.1 can use a Microsoft Account and a Local Account. If you boot in Safe Mode only (not Safe Mode with Networking), you won't be able to use the Microsoft Account login as it requires internet access to verify your credentials, thus, you will need to use a Local Account.
 
 
Let me know if this helps you out.

Question: Z580 and 5G WiFi

I have an IdeaPad Z580.  The spec sheet said it had an intel Wifi card that supports dual band WiFi but it actually has a Broadcom card that is single band.  Both Leneovo and the supplier refuse to talk to me so I am left having to buy a card myself.  Problem is that the BIOS seems to be locked down to disable cards that are not on an allowed list but I can't find a definitive list of what works. 1. Can anybody tell me what dual band cards are compatible?2. Am I right in thinking I need a dual band card with Bluetooth as well?3. In particular do you know if the following card works:Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6235 6235ANHMW Bluetooth 4.0 WIFI Half MINI PCI-E Card. 

Answer:Z580 and 5G WiFi

First thing is what Wi-Fi card do you have? Also do you have a separate bluetooth module or your bluetooth is already integrated to the Wi-Fi card. The Wi-Fi cards that you buy at online stores are usually generic and not OEM branded. You need to find the OEM branded Wi-Fi card with FRU P/N number so that the BIOS will allow it to function. If you have a separate bluetooth module, then you will only need a dual band Wi-Fi card without the bluetooth: Try to purchase this one and see if it works: Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6205FRU P/N: 60Y3253http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_odkw=lenovo+6205&_osacat=0&_from=R40&_trksid=p2045573.m570.l1313&_nk... If your original Wi-Fi card has integrated bluetooth then purchase the 6235 Lenovo version:FRU P/N: 04W3777http://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-Intel-Centrino-Advanced-N-6235-6235anhmw-04W3777-for-Lenovo-Thinkpad-/32... Honestly, I don't know if both cards will work, but the only way is to try. There's a much higher chance that the Lenovo versions of these cards will work though.

Question: Z580 WiFi Problems

My Z580 suddenly won't connect to the wifi network in my home. Every other device in the house connects no problem. I've had this problem before; last time I found that going into my PC settings to switch off the WiFi and switch it on again worked, as opposed to simply toggling Airplane Mode. This time I've done that multiple times. I've also restarted the router multiple times, disabled and reenabled the network adapter in the Device Manager, forgotten the network and logged on as new, toggled airplane mode. Uninstalling/resinstalling drivers for the Network Adapter seemed to work for about a minute. That's the most success I've had.

Currently using WIndows 8 64-bit and my wifi continually cuts out regardless of the network I am on. I have to troubleshoot so WIndows can reset the wifi adapter and then all is well for a while. I've checked with Intel and the driver is the latest driver available for my wireless card. Any suggestions?

Answer:Z580 WIfi keeps cutting out

If you have a lot of wifi routers in your area, they can cause interfierence, have you tried changing you wifi channel, you can use inssider to visualize the wifi signals around you. http://www.metageek.net/products/inssider/ also read this. http://www.pcworld.com/article/227973/six_things_that_block_your_wifi_and_how_to_fix_them.html John.

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! I've had a Z580 - Windows8,i5,6Gb RAM for about 12 months from new. I couldn't work with Windows8 so I rolled the OS back to Windows7 Home Ed 64-bit but my key wouldn't work so I bought a Windows7 Professional 64-bit and installed that. So far so good. Everything fires up and works ok,except I cannot use the internet. The Qualcom Atheros AR9485WB-EG is up and ok in device manager and the adapter connects to my router but there appears to be no internet data flow. The Wireless Network Adapter Status dialogue shows that I am sending and receiving bits, but not enough to prevent even the internet explorer startup page loading. I'm using ESET virus protection and that has never been a problem previously and there is no change when that is disabled.   I've tried the latest device drivers from the Lenovo site as well as older ones which are known to work on Windows7. Also tried moving Windows Boot Manager down the priority list on BOIS startup. Anybody got any ideas that don't invole bigger hammers or pyrotechnics??

Question: Z580 wifi problems

Hello, I am having issue with my Z580 which has lost all wifi.  When I hover over the wifi icon, it no longer allows me to see any wifi connections, which I know are there as other phones and laptops are connected.  I would appear that the wifi has completely stopped.  This happened a few months back and I was just about to return the PC to where I bought it from and the wifi started working again! If I run the diagnostics everything is apparently running ok but still no wifi.... Any help appreciated, maybe this time it will need returning but its a 4 hour return trip to do so... Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.

Hello,My new Lenovo Z580 runs windows 8 64bit, core i3 3rd gen, 4gb RAM.The problem is, since day 1,every few minutes the internet stops working. It shows as connected, the router is working, other connected devices run as intended and everything's fine. But internet doesn't work on my laptop. It says "Could not connect to the network". I have tried doing the "keep wifi on during sleep" etc. but nothing works. It just stops working after a while even though I am using the laptop, it just suddenly stops. It even shows as connected, and packets are being received but internet or any application over the internet will not work untill I disconnect and reconnect. Why does this happen? Any solutions?Thank you.

Answer:Z580 WiFi not working

If you're using the Intel Centrino N2230 wireless adapter, try to update drivers from the intel website:
 
Intel® PROSet/Wireless Software and Drivers for Windows 8* (install this first)
Intel® PROSet/Wireless Bluetooth Software for Windows 8*
 
After installing the drivers, disable the bluetooth when using wifi to prevent the connection from dropping and observe.
 
If you have a Broadcom/Atheros card, check this thread and try the script made by cbautis2 to refresh the winsock and TCP ip configurations of your PC or you can type the following on a command prompt, reboot the computer and observe:
 
ipconfig /flushdns
netsh winsock reset
netsh int ip reset

I'm using my Z580 for few days on Windows7 Ultimate (x64).When my computer is idle, or not heavy loaded, my WiFi connection is stable. When I try to open an application that loads my computer a bit (in my case I wanted to play World of Warcraft on medium details), my WiFI connection starts to fail and eventually my computer closes WiFi connection with the router. When only I'll turn off the game, everything goes back to normal. Same problem noticed on another games, basically on applications that use GPU much.Tried to reinstall WiFi drivers, didnt helped. Currently I'm installing another copy of WIndows, but loosing my hope. I have turned off every single "power saving" option that I've found (im running my laptop on charger most of time anyway), but it's still the same. Any suggestions or solutions for problems like that? I would be happy if that is some fancy software problem, not happy with sending it back to the warranty service - in general I would be very unhappy that hardware I've bought isn't reliable. Kind regards.

Answer:[Z580] WiFi turning off

It's possible that the router isn't giving higher priority and bandwidth to your laptop thus making you drop connection. Go to your router and turn on QoS. (note that not all routers support QoS) Then add your application and set the priority to high. An example would be something like this: Spoiler (Highlight to read)

Answer:Z580 wifi problems

hi mohamedsamy10,
 
The new driver from the Intel Website probably has compatibility issues with your router that's why you're getting No internet Access. Have you tried to rollback the driver from the previous version? 
 
Upon checking the spare parts, you have the Intel Wireless 2200N single band card which is capable of connecting up to 300Mbps, If you have a dual band router, you may need to configure it to work with single band wifi cards. Try also to disable any firewall / security software that might be conflicting with the connection/

It seems that the antenna wire has either not been connected with the WLAN card properly or the wire has been damaged completely. The best solution is to ship it back to service centre so that they replace the whole unit.

hi Freshoutoflife,
 
Welcome to the Forums.
 
It's possible that you have a security software / firewall that's blocking internet access or it can be a problem with Winsock (this is the programming interface and supporting program that handles input/output requests for Internet applications in a Windows).
 
Can you try these steps:
1. Open a command prompt as administrator then type the following:
 
ipconfig /releaseipconfig /flushdnsnetsh int ip reset
netsh winsock reset
 
When finished, restart the machine and observe (this resets the TCP/IP connection protocol used by Windows).
 
2. If same problem, uninstall the wireless adapter from the Device Manager (don't delete the driver) then reboot to refresh the wireless adapter settings.

Answer:New z580 with Win 8 Wifi not working properly

Hello and welcome,
 
What wireless mode are you using (g or n)? and what encryption mode?
 
This is a real long shot, but I've seen it lately on a couple of new laptops.  The router is set for WEP security, but allowing the laptops to hook up in n mode.  This is not supposed to be allowed per the n specs.
 
It can lead to a flaky connection.
 
Not saying this is your issue - just one thing to check.

Hello, I am new to this forum and have just recently bought my Lenovo laptop Z580. I updated to Windows 7 ultimate and everything seems working but I am having wireless connectivity issues. I have a good signal, I can connect to wifi and I don´t experience any internet cuts, however my download speed suddenly drops down, websites are loading slowly as well. Then I run a windows built-in diagnostic tool for wireless and it resolves it automatically: It resets the wireless network adapter and verifies if the network adapter configuration problem is resolved and that´s it. It shows at the end that I had problems with wireless adapter or access point and that it is fixed. The speed is OK, fast download, everything seems to be working. However the problem occurs again and again. And although Windows automatically resolves it, it is just a very short term solution.I have AR9285 wireless adapter, I tried to update the driver from the official website - no luck. I tried to uninstall the driver completely and install again the one that I have on my: /D hard drive - nothing changed. I have also tried to change my router channels from 6 to 11 and to 1 but no luck. Can you please advise me on this matter?Thank you!

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.

Answer:Help with Lenovo Z580 low fps..

Hi sapsm9,
 
Thanks for posting!
 
Your system might be triggering the Intel Turbo Boost Causing you system to heat up.
 
This is how you'll get to the settings
 
 Open Control Panel
               / Hardware and Sound 
                    / Power Option
                        / On you selected Power Plan Click on the Change plan Settings
     Now click on Advanced Power Settings and look for this option and set both AC and On Battery to 99 %
          
          
Try Changing the Maximum processor state to 
    On Battery:  99% 
    Plugged in:   99%
Hit Apply and hit OK
 
This will halt the Intel Turbo boost from kicking in and over heating that's possibly throttling down the GPU/CPU performance.
 
Let us know you findings.
 
Regards
Solid Cruver

I have a Z580 ideapad.  Does the WiFi support 5Ghz?  I do not see the 5Ghz signal from my router.

Answer:Soes the Z580 WiFi support 5Ghz?

Well, isn't the answer obvious then? If you're still in doubts, then the easiest way to find it out for sure is to go to device manager, find out what wireless card your laptop has, google for it and check its specs. GL!Also, AFAIK, y580 doesn't have dual-band wifi card, and I think that z580 isn't any better in this way.

I recently bought an Ideapad Z580 since school is starting up very soon. It has been working very well for me and I've been very pleased, that is until about a week ago. My wireless was working fine before then but now every time it connects, it can't go 30 seconds without dropping my connection. After dropping it, it will pick it back up in about 15 seconds or so. It's extremely annoying and makes my product nearly useless for me. I know it's not my router or my internet, because my brothers laptop connects (and stays connected) perfectly fine. I would appreciate any help anyone can give me because I desperately need this fixed for school! Thanks!

Someone recommended me to try lenovo but I can't believe it such a well known company can make a trash like this.Just because of this serious issue of  internet connection. I have lost  some of my official data's and unsaved work. Once I was in the middle of transferring money online and internet went off. I have a problem with my wifi. I have looked at other post's, I have updated the drivers. I have also changed the settings for the wireless card on the power settings. This has made no difference. This is not linked to the router or provider as my other PC and phones are all working fine. Just because of that issue I bought new router and wifi connectors months back I went back to office depot (bought from that place) and they asked me to call lenovo for your problem. So I did and they sent me new card for that issue.It worked for a month and the problem started again. I called them yesterday and they asked me to send it to them. During that time period do I have to buy a new one for my personal use? This time my friend asked me to try this forum.

My z580 constantly loses connectivity to the network ever since I updated to 8.1.  I never had a problem before the update, but now it constantly loses the identification, unprovoked.  Usually, it doesn't reconnect itself automatically, despite the connect automatically box being checked..  I often have to run the troubleshooter to fix the problem, which succeeds in fixing the problem - the message I get is a problem with the default gateway.  However, it is completely out of control and annoying to be constantly running the troubleshooter or having to go in and reconnect when I've done nothing to warrant losing the connection to begin with.

Answer:Z580 keeps losing wifi connection since updating to 8.1

Hi, Pretty sure I have solved this problem - one that has plagued me for almost a year  - like yourself, I have a z580.  Try this.  Go to device manager and click on the network adapter (centrino wireless n 2200 - aka "culprit").  Then go to file menu "Action", choose Properties and then choose the tab "Power Management" - here you need to UNcheck the box that says "Allow this computer to turn off this device to save power".  Seems pretty darn obvious so I'm not sure why Lenovo Tech Support has been so lame with finding this and giving people a break.  This adapter issue can cost them tons of losses via negative word of mouth for their brand.  In any case, I hope this solves your problem, so far it has solved mine.  I'm also not able to find a way to let EVERYONE with this problem know this solution.  Very unfortunate but I'll keep looking to find a way to get this information out.  Only found it today after months of dealing with this issue myself.  Let me know if it helps?

I brought a Z580 (M81K8UK) last year september brand new and have used it without issues since. This morning I turned it off before I went to sleep at 4am. Woke up this morning, pressed the power button and nothing. Laptop doesn't turn on or give any indication of anything. Put the battery in, pressed the button, still nothing. Plugged it in with the battery and the battery light comes on and when I press the button it goes off until I release it. I've tried discharging (taking the battery and ac out), pressing the power button a number of times and holding it then leaving it for a bit, but still nothing. I'm starting to become worried its a motherboard issue, but im still hoping for the best. I had turned off the power from the wall for the weekend on friday as I was out till sunday evening, but when I turned it on on sunday night it started up without issue. I'm a student whose tight with money at the moment and am hoping lenovo support can do something without payment, even if its out of warranty as I haven't modified or done anything other than use it as it should be used (I still take care of it as though its brand new; heck I've even increased the battery life to 4 hours after careful planning and usage).

I have downloaded a program that reads the temperature of my cores (SpeedFan 4.49) just to see how hot my Lenovo Z580 gets when i'm playing games. When i'm playing Resident Evil 6, my cores are reaching temperatures of around 100 degrees, which sounds like it could be a problem! (This is from playing on 1280x720 specs)Can anyone please tell me what the normal temperatures of my CPU and GPU should be? And what is the maximum temperature that my CPU and GPU can get to before it starts becoming dangerous to my laptop? Thanks very much! Josh

Answer:What temperatures are too hot for the Lenovo Z580?

Try using other programs that shows cpu core temperatures and gpu temperatures. I use Hardware Info Monitor. You can get a general idea of the normal temps by not running games and videos temporarily. One determining factor that your unit is running at an exceedingly high temperature is the constant running of the built-in cooling fan. If this happen you do need some extra cooling like an external cooling pad.

If I press the small button by the on button it says Novo Button Menu but nothing happens if I select an option. Even if the old hardrive is in (which still works) and I attempt to access bios it just boots into Windows. I am left feeling completely helpless and since the laptop is easily out of warranty (bought 2012).

Hi there, I have been led here because of a few issues my dad is having with his new Lenovo Z580.  It's a similar story, guy in his 50s gets a new laptop, has windows 8 and he almost throws it out the window, and so we have a genuine windows 7 license so I eventually get that on there. Everything seems to be ok apart from 2 things.  1) The Bluetooth wont work. He has a Bluetooth mouse but it will not connect. Any ideas? I realize that the UK drivers site is absolutely atrocious, I has to go to the Chinese site just to get the WIFI working!  2) Office will not install. This is strange one. I have genuine licenses for both 2007 and 2010. I started with 2007, its what he's used to. It goes through the whole install setup without a hiccup. Afterwards, I'll click on any of the office suite programs, and it will say "installing software" followed by "software installation failed" or something along those lines. Same with 2010. I have no idea what is causing this, and so all advice is much appreciated.  Sincerest apologies if this has been posted before.  Thanks in advance.  Jamie.

Answer:My Lenovo Z580 notes

Encoding a SD MPEG-2 movie to 1080 HD H264 through Sony Vegas Video 12 with GPU acceleration on and off results in essentially the same amount of time: about 1x real-time encoding speeds on the i5 CPU. Thus, those that want faster should look into the i7 CPU instead.Noticeably, at least for the Sony Vegas Video H264 encoder, the quality of the CPU-only encode is better than the GPU accelerated encode.CPU was about 60-65% loaded on CPU-only encode; about 20-25% on GPU encode (using the Intel HD 4000 Quicksync).But none-the-less, faster than the 6-8x slower than real time encoding of a decade old Pentium 4 3.06Ghz CPU system.Fan does speed up when the encode is underway, but it's nowhere as annoyingly loud as that on the 2006 Macbook Pro 15" (which sounds like an airplane engine)! Quite decent considering that you've got a ~35w TDP (45w+ at times) i5 CPU in there (Macbook Pro's also a 35w TDP CPU from 2006 era).---Comparing the screen vs. a decade old Toshiba 1130 and 2006 MacBook Pro 15" screen, the Toshiba is definitely inferior - very limited viewing range and mostly yellowish colors. Dull.Macbook is better at viewing angles than all three, but the colors are more yellow than real-life (eg. HDTV scenes of a 8-9am overcast day results in the road and sky looking more like it was a nice, warm, sunny day instead). That's on the default gamma included by Apple. Switching over to SRGB and the like on the Macbook is just troublesome since it's obvious none are properly optimized o... Read more

I sent my laptop off for repair because the bit you put the charger in was wobbly and didn't charge the laptop. It came back but it still won't charge. Anybody know what to do?

Answer:Lenovo Z580 not charging

is the port physically wobbling as in loose? if so they should have fixed that. If its fixed and it still wont charge it could be your charger got fired froma short when it was loose, if you havea multi meter you chould check the end that goes into the laptop for the right amount of amps ect.





I own a Y510p SLI (retired), Yoga 2 Pro, and a P50 4K.

I don't believe this is a bios issue that I've read many others having and fear it's MB/CPU related.  On startup, I get the tell tale black screen that just hangs. No splash screen, but everything else sounds active. Caps lock indicator will light up when toggled, although somewhat delayed. I've tried hooking up an external monitor, swapping ram, pulling battery and just about everything else, but none of it was successful. I've tried booting with the Novo button, and that does pop up, but selecting any of the 4 options results in the same black screen.    Haven't had any luck since it first happened getting past the boot screen.  Anything I'm missing trouble shooting wise? Or can anyone confidently say it is a MB/CPU issue?

I would just get the notebook replaced, i would not mess about with it, i have two Z580 and A key made a creaking noise for a day but apart from that it`s fine. John.
