Preferred Solution: IdeaPad z580 USB Driver For Windows 8.1 64bit

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: IdeaPad z580 USB Driver For Windows 8.1 64bit

Try disconnecting your device first. Uninstall the driver with the yellow mark. Reboot then try connecting your device. In Windows 8.1 usually you don't need to install the usb drivers Windows itself will provide/install the driver.

Answer:i have a ideapad z580 . i want clean install windows 7 ultimate 64bit . my disk must be gpt or mbr ?

In general, if uefi is enable the disk can be formatted as gpt style partition disk. If uefi is disable the disk can be formatted as an mbr partition style disk. The Win 7 64 bit installer can install Windows in a gpt style disk.

I bought a ideapad z580 3 months ago and thought of upgrading to windows 8 (64bit). it was a pain. finally i had to revert to windows 7 because of driver installation errors & missing drivers. Can somebody tell me why i got these errors (i did a clean install of the os & tried running setup with admin privileges)realtek driver - No driver supported in this driver packagecamera -the setup program for the target device is not foundnvidia-unable to execute the command linetouchpad-setup asked for 64bit exe error also i got 'target device not found' & 'unable to execute the command line' errors for wireless,intel managment driver,vga driveronly chipset and energy management drivers installed properly.   I called lenovo chat support team & they helped me with installing driver by browsing the path in devmgmt.msc..thats not the normal way to install a driver. You click on a setup & it should install.Also i dont get to see 'Lenovo OneKey theatre' software on 'Other Softwares' category.I should call these as buggy drivers for windows 8 and dono why lenovo is pushing it to the support site. Ideapad Z580 users please try installing win8 in a virtual machine before upgrading your pc.am so frustated. spent more than 4 hours on Upgrade & still achieved nothing.

I have an IdeaPad y480 with the release version of Windows 8 64bit installed. I have downloaded the driver on lenovo's drivers page named "0pto09w8.exe" found under the "Mouse and Keyboard" category for the Lenovo IdeaPad y480. It says it is for Windows 8 32 and 64 bit versions and it's release date is "24 October 2012" (tomorrow). However, I could download it so I am assuming the right version is ready early?  Problem:I download and run that exe. It extracts then attempts to run but I always get this error:Even running in compatibility mode and/or as administrator. I've tried the Windows 7/xp drivers and I get similar errors or they just don't work at all, again in compatibily mode and/or being ran as administrator. Any ideas or any help is appreciated! Google hasn't help much, haha. Thanks,Andy

I reinstalled my ideapad with new windows 7 64-bit. Everything works fine; except requirements for my video or graphic card. I have nVidia graphics (may be Geforce 8600 or somethings like that ). But after I got this new win7, the old drivers are useless. However I was able to find the sound, and other drivers and were easily installed. I am having a big problem finding the video drivers. Any drivers I have downloaded so far from intel and nvidia haven't worked. If someone who knows about this issue, and have gone through this problem too, would like to help me find the right driver for my computer, I would be very thankful.

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.

I got taken in by all of the messages from Microsoft insisting that my computer was fully compatible and that I should upgrade to Windows 10. It never dawned on me that I should have checked the Lenovo website first to be sure. After the upgrade I noticed two things: (1) the system seemed to be working pretty well, and (2) I couldn't find Dolby Home Theater v4 (one of my absolute favorite programs). When I finally looked at the Lenovo website I found the following page with the heading, "Dolby Home Theater does not work after Windows 10 upgrade" (https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/documents/ht104006).When I checked the "Windows 10 upgrade supported list" (https://support.lenovo.com/documents/ht103535), as the page instructs, I saw that Ideapad Z580 wasn't on it. The page goes on to say that if your machine isn't on the list, "drivers have not been updated for that machine, and Lenovo does not recommended an upgrade to Windows 10." The page continues with possible solutions, but does it make sense to even try them?Then I found another page on the Lenovo site entitled, "Windows 10 Upgrade Guide - IdeaPad and Lenovo Notebook" (https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/documents/ht103611). The news here wasn't any better. It says, "The following listed computer models include hardware components not fully compatible with Windows 10.

Answer:what is best windows for lenovo ideapad z580 ?

Hi jimrako,
 
This is really a tricky question because it depends on your hardware.
 
The best way I can think of answering this is by providing you the requirements for each then you can check against your requirements:
 
Windows 10:
 
RAM:
1 gigabyte (GB) for 32-bit or 2 GB for 64-bit
Hard disk space:
16 GB for 32-bit OS 20 GB for 64-bit OS

Graphics card:
DirectX 9 or later with WDDM 1.0 driver
Display:
800x600
Cons: a bit of a learning curve as it changes a lot

 
Windows 8
 
Processor: 1 GHz or faster processor
Memory(RAM): 1 GB RAM (32-bit) or 2 GB RAM (64-bit) 
Hard Disk: 16 GB available hard disk space (32-bit) or 20 GB (64-bit) 
Graphics: DirectX 9 graphics device with WDDM 1.0 or higher driver

I am working on a system running Windows 7 Home Professional.  The system will no longer boot to windows and stops at the Lenovo splash screen.  I can access the bios and I slaved the HD to my desktop and found errors on the HD including cross linked files and folders.  My system repaired the errors but still won't boot up.  The main goal here is to get Windows up and running again so that I can save all files and folders in MS Office.  No pst files exist.  I have ordered the complex services support package and it should be here in a day or two.  My question is, can Windows be resurrected in a manor that will not destroy MS Office/Outlook without loosing all files and subfolders.  Should I try to restore the MBR in debug mode?  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi everyone, I bought Ideapad Z580 in November 2012 installed with windows 7. Leagally upgraded to windows 8 under windows 8 upgrade programme. Now i am very desperate to upgrade further to windows 8.1, however i came across tons of problems faced by Z580 users regarding power mangement, display issues, wifi conncetivity and other tons of incompatability. I am requesting some system expert to tell me that if i proceed with the upgrade what could be the possible consequences? And wether it is still recommended to proceed with the upgrade?  Also i came across one forum wherein it was written that upgrading from windows 7 has terminated the lenovo warranty. I am holding 3 years extended warranty. Can installing new OS can result in termination of hardware warranty? Sounds strange.

Answer:Ideapad Z580 Upgrade to WIndows 8.1

Hi beats_1989,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
   Windows 8.1 has just been officially released and just like any other Operating System Patch, updates and fixes will sure to come. Most specially with the drivers, Im pretty sure sable drivers will be created for Windows 8,1 Support.
    If I'm in your situation I'll Wait a little bit more until all issues has been resolved by community members and Lenovo.
 
You may encounter Driver and Software Compatibility Issues. Where in you might need to search in and out of Lenovo for Driver updates and do it manually.
 
 Upgrading the Windows OS will not Void your Hardware Warranty, But their support for Preloaded Windows and Lenovo Software components may not be supported over the phone.
 
  Still Any proven Hardware Defect or Malfunction will be covered by Lenovo through the coverage of your warranty, and there may be times that they will have to reload the Original OS/Software incase the Software / OS upgrade causes some hardware not to function properly. But surely you will be notified prior to making any changes on your Upgraded OS or Software.
 
Regards
Thanks,

Hi All,  I have ideapad Z580 notebook (i7-3612QM @2.1GHz) with Windows 7 Home premium Service pack 1 (64Bits). I have troubles in my computer and want to reset windows to factory settings. I don't have any recovery discs, previous system image or OEM files to recover windows. I have tried 'system recovery' many-many times but if also ends up to the error. I had also tried 'Lenovo onekey recovery' but it also doesn't starts properly to reset windows.  Only option I can see (may be) is the windows recovery system with OEM (or recovery media) files (please correct me if I am wrong, and guide with other options).  Can somebody who has the ideapad Z580 with Windows 7 home premium SP1 help to share the initial OEM files (or recovery disc images (ISO files or so) ) so that I can recover my windows from this serious trap. Please advise if my understanding is completely wrong and may be there is any other option which I can use to solve this. Many thanks in advance.

I have a lenovo Z580 pre-loaded with Windows 7 Home Basic that I upgraded to Windows 8 around 2 years back and then subsequently to Windows 8.1. Yesterday, I saw that the support.lenovo.com page for my product was showing a BIOS update for Windows 7 and 8. Thinking that it would run on Windows 8.1 also, I downloaded it and installed it, but alas I was wrong, and as soon as the update happened my system stopped booting and was stuck on the boot menu and kept on asking which device to boot from. I then changed the Boot Mode from the BIOS to Legacy and was able to boot into the system, but as we know the boot process becomes slow. The new BIOS version 5FCN95WW. While updating I did not take note of the previos BIOS version and nor did I take a backup of it. If anyone has the same specification as my laptop, please tell me the current version of BIOS. And also if you have not changed your BIOS version please upload a copy of your .WPH file.

Going crazy here and the support so far from Lenovo has been beyond poor so I'm turning to the forums.  I have two brand new Z580 Ideapad's, the only reason we bought them was they were cheap and had bluetooth.  Well I cannot activate bluetooth in anyway on the laptops.  There is no switch, I used the FN+F5 key and all I am prompted with is the Turn Wireless on or Off, nothing about bluetooth.  I've installed, uninstalled and reinstalled the Lenovo Power Management because I saw a number of posts referring to this piece of software.  I checked BIOS and only saw the option for Wireless.  All drivers are installed and reinstalled multiple times.  I see the Aerthos BT stuff running in the background and there are no conflicts in Device Manager, even looked for hidden devices. The laptops are Windows 7 32bit Enterprise, clean installs with only windows updates and ONLY Lenovo drivers installed IE I didn't use the Windows Update drives for anything.  Any help on where to go or what to do is appreciated.  My next move is to return these and never purchase Lenovo again if I can't get this resolved by Friday as my client is not happy at all. James

Answer:Ideapad Z580 Bluetooth + Windows 7/32 Not working

hi jrhaile,
 
Welcome to the Lenovo Community.
 
That's quite a hassle you got there. From what I know, if you press Fn+F5, you will get a "Lenovo Wireless Device Settings" menu.
 Spoiler (Highlight to read)
If you get the menu but you only see the wireless, what you can try is to:
1, Remove the AC adapter and Battery then press & hold the power button for 30secs (this drains the power off the unit).
2. Reconnect both AC adapter and battery and boot into the BIOS by pressing F2, when you're in, press F9 to set BIOS to default and press F10 to save and exit BIOS.
3. Boot into Windows and try to pair a blueooth device
 
If the same problem occurs you can try to reseat the Bluetooth module by checking the PCI Express compartment on page 42 of the hardware maintenance manual.
 
 
Hope this helps.

Hi. I've owned a Lenovo Ideapad Z580 for a few months now. I've noticed that in task manager disk usage is often going to 100% and this is due to "system". I'm guessing that means windows 8 is causing this bottleneck, but i believe there's a problem with windows 8 because it shouldn't constantly be bringing my laptop to a slowdown by using 100% of the disk. It could also be possible the driver need's updating or this is just an issues with my laptop i'm unsure. I've looked hard to find sollutions but can't find anything. If anyone has any help or a sollution please let me know. Cheers!

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:Ideapad Z580 Crashed & wont reboot to windows.

hi Elv,
 
Welcome to the Lenovo Forums
 
From the looks of it, you may have a bad HDD or a bad memory module that's why you can't do a system recovery or even do a fresh installation of Windows 8. To verify this, you need to run a diagnostic on the HDD/RAM
 
I personally use UltimateBootCD for the diagnostics. To create a bootable CD:
1. Download the the UBCD ISO
2. Burn the ISO using imgburn
3. Insert the CD that you just created into the defective computer and reboot
4. 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 get any errors, you will need to contact lenovo for service.
 
 
Hope this helps.

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.

Dear Team, I bought Z580 ideapad last week with Windows 8 pre installed. I wanted to take backup of my windows 8 OS for safe keeping. If in case my OS crashes or if I change my OS from Windows 8 to other OS and later if i want to change it back to my licensed Windows 8. I heard about this onekey recovery. Is this option available only for recovering the OS during crash ? or Can I take backup of my OS using this feature ?. Please tell me how to take backup of my Windows 8 OS using onekey recovery or by any other method avilable. So that at any time i might be able to have my licensed OS.

Answer:Taking Windows 8 Backup using one key recovery on my Z580 Ideapad

Hi friendLenovo offers one key reocvery to the user to revert to the factory install only. You can create a custom backup of your c drive via the onekey recovery application in windows. However, to use that backup, you will have to boot to onekey recovery by pressing the onekey button next to the power button to power on the laptop. So if somehow the okr breaks( i hope it doesn't), you will neither be able to reset to factory defaults nor use the backup created by you. So you can use the inbuilt recovery options of windows 8. See this threadhttp://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Windows-8/Various-Ways-of-recovery-in-Windows-8/td-p/947369And this linkhttp://support.lenovo.com/en_IN/downloads/detail.page?DocID=HT076024Hope this helps

Hey guys,I bought a Lenovo IdeaPad Z580 in December, and ever since I have received it, I have not been able to utilize the Nvidia GeForce GT635M graphics included with the laptop.My laptop has Windows 8 64 bit included. I reinstalled the drivers from the Lenovo website (even tried the Chinese website as I read some people have better luck with their drivers). I installed the chipset, then intel hd drivers, and finally the NVidia. I can open the Nvidia control panel, and set preferences to use the Nvidia card. However, no application will actually use the Nvidia card. Every benchmark is using the HD4000 intel graphics, and some games in which I can choose the graphics within the game only show the Intel graphics.I have set the power plan settings to high performance, and every other setting that I can think will affect it, with no success.Is this simply because there are no compatible switchable graphics drivers with Windows 8 as of yet?  Just trying to make sense of this as I bought the laptop for light computer gaming, and cannot use the integrated card at all.

Doing a factory restore through OKR will result to a state of the os where the present updates are not yet installed thus the restarts after the updates. One way to prevent windows from restarting due to an update is to not connect to the internet.

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.

I have since received the laptop and I can only find Intel 4000HD graphics available and unfortunately they just do not cut it. That said, I have read this forum (and many others) And here is what I have tried:- I have updated all my drivers based on what I could find on the Lenovo support website. Including Chipset, Management Engine and Intel VGA- I have TRIED to install Nvidia Optimus and GT635m graphics drivers.

2) Windows Legacy Instaled misses not only 3 but 6 devices.
3) Last but not least, although identified my wireless card (BroadCom 802.11n) hence Wi-Fi drivers are installed by Windows 8 themselves, by connection speed is way to slow........

Hi, I'm looking for a laptop for college that can also run some games.  I'm not hoping to run Crysis on high or anything...I just want to be able to have Portal, TF2, etc. look moderately good and play without lag.  I've found 2 laptops that look promising, but need help deciding. First is the Z580 21512KU model (about $770 on Amazon):-Intel Core_i5_3210M Processor 2.5GHz (3MB Cache)-6 GB DIMM RAM-750GB 5400rpm Hard Drive-NVIDIA GT630M 1GB DDR3 Then we have the Y570 ($750 on Lenovo's online shop):-i7-2670QM Processor( 2.2GHz 1333MHz 6MB)-8.0GB PC3-10600 DDR3 SDRAM 1333 MHz-1TB 5400 rpm Hard Drive-NVIDIA GeForce GT 555M 1GB Which one will be able to run my games better?  The Y570 seems like a better deal (larger hard drive, more RAM, i7 over i5), but I've heard that the .3 GHz difference in processor speed makes the i5 better.  Is this true?  Also, which graphics card will be better?  All in all, which is a better bang for my buck? Thanks!

Answer:IdeaPad Z580 vs. IdeaPad Y570?

Hi, I was exactly in the same dilemma; they are both priced very similarly. I opted for z580 because of several reasons. Y570 gets hotter overal. The i7 processor makes absolutely no difference in games; it's only useful for video editing. The 555M graphics card in the Y570 is the nerfed version of the card, which makes it performance wise similar to the GT 630M:http://www.notebookcheck.net/NVIDIA-GeForce-GT-555M.41933.0.html(96 cores 753MHz (GF108), 128Bit GDDR5, e.g. Lenovo Y570p / Y560p)The hood on the Z580 looks way better (personal preference).The z580 has Ivy Bridge.Also, the screen on the z580 is a little better (AUO vs SEC on Y570). Bottom line: I'm very happy with my choice. Excellent build quality and decent performance. The screen is one of the best 1366x768 screens I've seen.I've played the following games so far:Crysis 2 on gamer settings, average 30 fpsshift 2 on high settings, 30-50 fpsmax payne 3 on medium, average 30+ fpsthe witcher 2, low settings, average 30 fps.modern warfare 3, high 40 fps Hope this helps

I recently bought a U450p with 4GB ram but was very disappointed to find out that it was on 32bit Windows 7. I searched high and low on the internet on how I could have Windows 7 64bit installed instead but did not manage to find any support at all from Lenovo. With Windows 7, both the 32bit and 64bit versions use the same license key and even the retail versions ship media for both versions. Users should and must have the option to choose which version they prefer. Even Acer ships the 64bit as default of majority of their new Windows 7 laptops. Saying that 64bit Windows 7 uses more memory is moot as there are definitely performance advantages from using new 64bit software that will be introduced in the near future (e.g. MS Office). Mac OS X has been 64bit for ages, it's time Microsoft PCs/laptops caught up!! Can Lenovo please provide this option in the form of a one key rescue CD (in a downloadable format) with Windows 7 64bit instead of the default 32bit installed in the laptop? This would be very much appreciated. A minor point is also the fact that it is almost impossible to email anyone in Lenovo for support issues. I've tried searching for a way to send this to someone in Lenovo online but came up empty. I should have done my homework before buying this laptop!

Fn F9  done the camera is still not ON but icon says on. Reinstalled the Youcam software twice, but issue remains "Camera to be switched on". Please advise.

Answer:Ideapad U310 Windows 7 64bit, YouCam not working

hi vtrakroo,
 
The Lexmark X422 that you're seing is likely the scanner from your Lexmark printer (the built-in camera should usually be listed as Lenovo Easy Camera or similar)
  - Sample image
 
Things that you can try:
1. Boot into the BIOS by pressing F2 (or Fn+F2). In the BIOS, press F9 (or Fn+F9) to load setup defaults then press F10 (or Fn+F10) to save and exit.
    - this procedure will refresh all hardware components in the system
 
2. Inside Windows, check if you have an Unknown Device in the Other Devices section. If you have this, follow this guide on how to identify the device (or post the Hardware ID here)
    - Sample image
 
3. Reinstall the camera driver
   - Camera Driver (Bison, Chicony, Awazu) for Microsoft Windows 7 (32-bit, 64-bit)
 
 
Let me know how it goes.

Story: my company got two Z580 for me and my collegaue. His was Windows 7 edition (Win7 sticker at the bottom), mine Windows 8 edition (Win8 sticker at the bottom). Since we use Windows 7, I had to reinstall the system (to Windows 7). Everything went fine to the point when I had to install Nvidia drivers. The installer states that I don't have compatible hardware. This is odd becuase I have also Nvidia "Geforce with CUDA" sticker, and even BIOS knows I have dual card (Optimus). Windows by itself detected Intel chip and unknown VGA one. I tried Lenovo drivers (for Nvidia) and also the ones grabbed directly from Nvidia site. Any help/hints are greatly appreciated.Thank you in advance.

Hi all,Today I tried to install some old logitech software for an external webcam. Alas, it is not compatible with windows 8. However, I could still use the webcam on skype, I just couldn't install the application that would let me take pictures with cool effects. I was going through the files on the disc and, not knowing such about computers, thought that it might be the software overall that was incompatible...but maybe there's just one file that I could download! Yeah. I'm stupid. I found something that said "64 bit" (I think that's all it said) and thought "Hey! this is a 64 bit! maybe this is what I need!" so I installed it. it looked like things were going fine. Then as I was finishing up, the background (the desktop) went blue. I still had skype open, though. My boyfriend said I probably just needed to restart it. so I did. now I can't get past the login screen. I log in and it's just a black screen.I called support, but I couldn't hear him very well.

hi sydthefairebrat,
 
Welcome to the Forums.
 
After you login, can you try to:
1. Press the Ctrl+Shift+Esc keys to open task manager. If the task manager opens up, click File > New Task (Run ..) > type explorer then press enter. If you get your desktop screen with all the icons, you can uninstall the camera software to undo the changes.
 
2. Interrupt the loading of Windows 8 to enterpush-button reset mode (this is like a recovery environment to restore the pc fromr previous working state). To do this, hold the power button while Windows 8 is loading up (you need to do this twice).  From here, you can:
2a. boot into Safe Mode and uninstall the software that caused the problem
2b. do a System Restore to undo the changes
2c  refresh your Windows 8 PC
 
3. Alternatively, If you have created a recovery drive using this method, you can boot from it and follow the steps 2a-2c.

Hey Lonovo community.I just purchased a Z580 and I my intent was to upgrade it. It came with the i7 3520M, 500GB hard drive, and 4GB of ram. I can upgrade the RAM and HDD just fine, but I want to upgrade the GPU as well. It came with just the Intel 4000HD graphics. The built-in GPU is alright, but I'd like to install a Nvidia GT640M. I assume that the motherboards are the same across all the Z580s, so am I correct in thinking that there should be a slot open for a secondary GPU in this thing? And if there is a slot, I am having trouble finding a GPU chip to buy. Any help is appreciated!

There are no slots for graphics card in Z580. Those Z580s with the GT 640M have GPU chip soldered to the motherboard. Those Z580s without the dedicated graphics chip does not have a slot where you can solder the GPU. Besides, there is no GT 640M that is packaged as an MXM card, and only high end gaming laptops (GTX 670M or higher) have MXM slots in order to upgrade their graphics card.

Hello,

I have a Sony Vaio that just recently started freezing after startup for no apparent reason.

I initially thought the freeze maybe caused by the HDD so I purchased and installed a SSD (the computer needed updating anyway.)

Along with the SSD, I put a fresh install of Windows 7 on the machine. The computer still froze randomly.

Next, I switched out one stick of ram at a time to see if either (the computer has two sticks) maybe causing the fault. Nothing...same random freezing.

Then, I noticed that if I move the computer, that's when everything freezes...cursor and all. I thought, "loose connection somewhere."

Lastly, I notices that when I start in safe mode w/networking, the computer DOESN'T freeze! Moving the machine around or not.

This has led me to believe the freeze is being caused by a driver of some sort... but,

How do i determine WHICH driver is causing this? (i also have set the bios back to default..no fix)

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Thanks...

Hello, I wonder whether anyone else has experienced this: with the 64-bit version of Windows 7 there seems to be a bios incompatibility with the B570 : the Windows 7 install DVD hangs on reset every time. After installing Windows and all updates and drivers, the problem persists: everything works normally except for sleep and reboot. It hangs at the last moment, just before the power should be removed. The display has already gone black, but the power light stays on, so one has to force the power-off by holding the power button. With the 32-bit version or with Linux Ubuntu in 64 bit there is no problem with sleep or reboot. Microsoft support of course blames Lenovo and tells me I should get a new bios from them there isn't any yet -- the laptop has bios 44CN28WW and KBC 44EC26WW many thanks of any insights! 

Answer:Ideapad B570 hangs on reboot, shut-down and sleep with Windows 7 / 64bit

Hello forums I was hoping I could get some help.
 
I am overall very happy with the computer except for one thing.
 
I use Truecrypt system encryption on my computer and not having the ability to utilize the AES-NI instruction set is becoming a bit of a nuisance. I know my CPU (Intel Core i5-3210M) supports AES-NI but it seems as if the microcode to enable support in the BIOS is disabled. 
support for AES-NI is verified HERE on Intel's website.
 
Currently I am running Windows 7 Pro x64 with the BIOS set to legacy mode.
Would running the BIOS in legacy mode disable this feature?
 
I am a computer technician and am in school for network engineering, so big words are ok. 
 
Any help would be appreciated.

Answer:Ideapad z580 AES-NI Support?

There has to be someone who has either found a fix for this or wants is as a feature.Speaking of which, if this is a missing feature what would be the proper channels to go through to inform Lenovo that it should be implemented in the next BIOS update.

Dear forum,I recently bought a steinberg ur22 usb audio interface. Whenever it is connected to my aptop wj.dows will freeze sooner or later, sometimes after half an hour, sometimes after one or two hours. I cannot find anything in windows event viewer about it. I was wondering if anyone had similar issues? I have tge laptop for over a year and this was never a problem. Any ideas? Thanks!Z580Core i78gbwindows 7

Answer:ideapad z580 usb issue

Hello everyone, REply to myself. Could not get the problem fixed, returned the unit. Bought a miditech audiolink pro. But I get the same problems. What is wrong with lenovo usb? I have exhausted all options with the manufacturer. Disabled the onboard sound and it still happens. Lenovo technical support won't help because it's 3rd party hardware and it's their responsibility to make sure it's compatible. However the steinberg support said they never had this issue reported before. So it has to be something with the laptop. I cannot find anything related online happening to anyone else. So I hope someone can help me out. I bought this laptop a year ago for 800 euros hoping to use it for music production and it would be pretty bad if that money was wasted. So maybe someone from lenovo reads this and could contact me? Thanks. Regards,

I just bought a new Western Digital My Passport external hard drive. It works perfectly when plugged into the USB 2.0 slots, but has constant disconnecting problems when plugged into the USB 3.0 slots. It'll disconnect and then immediately reconnect. I tried my brother's harddrive (same model) and it has the same problem. Also, my Logitech MX 1000 works perfectly fine when the bluetooth receiver is plugged into the USB 2.0 slot, but becomes laggy and slow when plugged into the USB 3.0 slot. I updated all the firmware for the devices, drivers for the USB, drivers for the intel chip set, and turned off power saving options for the USB slots. I've searched the web for the harddrive issue and it looks like a lot of people are having them. But my mouse runing slowly worries me because its more than one device. is this a hardware problem? Any possible solutions?

Answer:Ideapad Z580 USB 3.0 Problems

Did you specificaly update the usb 3.0 drivers from the intel website, not just the chipset drivers as they are seperate. My TomTom will not work on my usb 3.0 but works fine on usb 2.0, but i think it`s a tomtom issue. I have a Verbatim 500gb usb 3.0 hdd and it works fine on my usb 3.0 I wonder if you problem is a WD driver problem. John.

Looking to choose between Z580 IdeaPad and T530 laptop.This will be my first laptop. Been a desktop power user most of my lifeThe notebook specifications for the Z580 are: I7 3520M, 2.9 GHz, 15?, Win 7 , 4G Ram, 500 HD.  A couple of quick questions on the Z580 notebook: What would the average battery life, I can expect(from this notebook) given that it has a 6 cell lithium?My web activities will be: Web surfing, Email, Reading social networks occasionally Watching movies.Can I buy/replace the 6 cell battery on the Z580 with a 9 cell lithium after I purchase the laptop?Will a 9 cell fit in this model?In your opinion is the wireless connection steady i.e. minimal dropping of connection? Thanks for your help.TC.

Answer:IdeaPad Z580 Notebook (Q).

If long battery life and wireless connectivity are most important for you, you should get the thinkpad since their batteries have more WHr than an ideapad for the same 6-cell, though the batteries are heavier. Thinkpads usually have better wifi out of the factory, but you can install a much better wifi if you opt for the ideapad which comes with an entry level wifi adapter. One more thing, the battery with the Z-580 only comes with 6-cell while the thinkpad has the option for 9-cell battery.

   Hello,     I bought a Ideapad Z580 here in the US, and would be gifting it to my brother who stays in the UK. Should I register the laptop with his details (UK address, etc)  (or he can register the laptop when he gets it) so that he can get the laptop serviced under the International Warranty Service if he has to? Or can he avail the IWS even if it registered under my name?   Thanks,  nagesh

Dear Concern,
 
I bought my laptop Ideapad z580 (serial: QBxxxxxxx) a year ago for £752. and it had issue of randomly restarting. I installed new windows, tried many solutions but failed. Sent it for repair. Now this is really disappointing from customer point of view that his/her new laptop got repaired within few months. I said ok that is fine.
 
Within one month of repair, my laptop was not showing anything at all. There was some issue with motherboard (again) and display card. now this is frustrating part. I asked for refund that this is second time in a year it broke and asked for refund. The guy on the phone was really clever and said "sir please send your laptop and if it is a physical/hardware error we will get back to you about refund". No one came back and they sent repaired laptop back.
 
Now within first 2 weeks i found that i cannot use LAN card which i was able to in the past. I use it for video conferencing and video gaming as well. This constant back and forth caused delay in my web project and i lost £1k. whom should i blame? I called the support and asked for refund and the guy said "sir your warranty has just expired a month ago" is it my fault? this laptop keeps breaking. Again he is clever and said "sir i have told me supervisor about your case and he will call you to ask about replacement unit or possible refund".
 
It has been over a week and I am writing this here in frustration so that any Lenovo support can read and do some... Read more
