Preferred Solution: lenovo Z580 install windows 7

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: 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.

Either way you'll lose the on-disk recovery options. Don't lose that USB drive.

Answer:Drivers missing after a Windows 8 Pro x64 UEFI Install on a Lenovo Z580 ideapad

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.

Hey,

I seem to be having an issue with the wireless on my Lenovo Ideapad Z580.

After a clean install of Windows 7 Ultimate I have no wireless. The "Network Controller" controller comes up as flagged under Device Manager. Installing the wireless drivers provided from the official website doesn't help, they either tell me I don't have the correct hardware or tell me it hasn't installs and gives me the option to reinstall using recommended settings, which also doesn't help.

Any help at all would be really appreciated. Thanks.

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).

Answer:How many Partitions has a new Lenovo z580 Windows 8

HiWelcome the forumsThe reason for these many partitions is that win 8 pre-loaded systems have gpt partition. 3 are created by default for windows 8 . Then 1 recovery partition is okr backup and other is okr startup. The rest are gpt disks.Regards

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:

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
Cons: Without Touch it is not intuitive
 
 
Windows 7
 
Processor: 1 GHz or faster 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x64) processor
Memory(RAM): 1 GB of RAM (32-bit)/2 GB of RAM (64-bit)

I have a Lenovo Z580 that came pre-installed with Windows 7.  I would like to upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 8.1 without destroying any of the partitions so that if I do not like Windows 8.1 I can use the recovery feature to reinstall Windows 7 and all original drivers.  I apologize if this has been addressed elsewhere in the forums.   I do understand that there is not a direct path to upgrade from Windows 7 to 8.1.  You have to upgrade to Windows 8 first.  However, I have never been a fan of OS upgrades.  I intend on doing a fresh 8.1 install.  My data is backed up.

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.

Hi there guys,got a relatively new z580 with windows 8 - only a few months old. Ever since the beginning i had trouble with the so called "intelligent" touchpad - it used to crash every now and then and a simple restart would do the trick. I have tried a lot of drivers and a lot of updates,but none seemed to resolve the issue. Nowadays even restarting the laptop does not help - touchpad software does not even strart.Would be great if someone could give me a tip,if something has worked for you.

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.

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?

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.

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.

Lenovo Ideapad z580 Win10 64 I updated the bios with the private update (I know now that I should have used the public update) Then it showed this menu:http://i.imgur.com/kZaO2tf.jpg Whenever I selected HDD, the screen would go black for a couple of seconds and return to this menu. I fixed it by going into BIOS and changing bootmode from UEFI to Legacy. it booted but now everything is slow. It takes 5 mins to boot up and a further 15 minutes to reach usable speeds (I only have 4 startup programs). I tried changing it back to UEFI and it gives me the same problem as shown in the picture. I tried installing the public update, but it says that I cannot update as the current bios version is the same or newer. I went into BIOS and enabled BIOS back flash, and now when I try to start the public update, it just crashes. I also cannot access the start menu (this problem may be seperate and unrelated) I have backed up files and am prepared to do a clean reinstall of Win10, but I feel this won't work as it's a BIOS issue. The computer is unusably slow: what should I do? Thanks

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?

Thanks

You can use the OS drop-down to limit the display to Win7x64 drivers to see what's available. The chipset driver *may* address a couple of your listed items. The others may require deeper digging.

Answer:Blue Screen on Lenovo Z580 (Default Windows 7 Home Basic)at Startup And Restart

hi sapsm9,
 
According to this pdf data sheet, the Lenovo Z580 that comes with a Windows 7 is a Home Premium edition. If this is what you mean, you can try to do a repair install (see this guide)
 
Alternatively, if you don't have important data on the machine, consider pressing the OneKey Recovery button to restore the unit from factory settings.
 
 
Hope this helps

I created a separate partition for installing Win XP Pro.  I labeled it F.  When I run the Win XP Pro install disk, all I see is the full 500 GB partition available.  This has worked on other notebooks with Vista and 7 preinstalled.  What am I doing wrong?

Answer:Install Windows XP Pro as a dual boot OS with preinstalled Win 8 on Ideapad Z580.

The best way to dusal boot a NTLDR os(Win XP) and a BOOTMGR os(Win 8,7,Vista) is to install the ntldr os first and then the windows 8 os.

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.

Answer:How to install Nvidia driver for Z580 (Win8 version) with Windows 7 Pro?

Hi,
 
Welcome to the forum.
 
Try updating the chipset driver, Intel graphic driver and then the Nvidia driver. Nvidia will not get installed without the Intel graphic driver. Also make sure that switchable graphics is enabled in BIOS. Here is the link with all compatible drivers.
 
http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/research/hints-or-tips/detail.page?&DocID=HT073553
 
Please let me know, If the issue is not resolved. Also let me know is it 32-bit OS or 64-bit?

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.

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

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.

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.

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 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 would call the standard 0844 uk support line, but its really expensive for the situation I'm in at the moment as I only have a mobile and no access to a landline.  Next step I want to open it and take out the CMOS battery to hard reset, but d...

My problem began when I updated my BIOS at Lenovo to version 5FC95WW. Now my laptop will not boot into Windows 7. It automatically goes to the Bios set up screen only. After I save and exit from the Bios screen & wait about 15 seconds it goes back to the 'set-up' screen again. It will not do anything else. Everything appears to be normal in that screen.

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.

Hi, I ran into this issue a few days back.http://forums.lenovo.com/t5/IdeaPad-Y-U-V-Z-and-P-series/Random-shutdown-and-PXE-E61-and-PXE-M0F-err... I searched for solutions all over the web and was'nt able to resolve the issue so i took my laptop to 'the guy' and he diagnosed a Hard Drive failure and asked for my Internal HDD to be replaced. I was fine with it until i heard his quotation for a replacement Hard Drive (Seagate or Toshiba) which would cost me a bomb. So i decided i'l come back home and check if i can do it myself for cheaper. And i found that if i could do it at home it would be significantly cheaper and also replacing the Internal Hard Drive is no rocket science. I now know how to replace the Internal HDD after going through various forums and youtube videos.  What i don't know is which are the alternate HDDs which will be compatible with my z580. I somehow managed to pull out a few 500gb HDDs which i think might suit my Laptop.  I want some suggestions as to whether these would be compatible with my Lenovo Ideapad z580.

Incredibly incredible !!

Answer:Lenovo Z580 fan issues

Hi fahrabh,
 
The first problem is that your machine is not on the list of compatible systems that can currently run Win 10. This does not necessarly mean it wont run it but you might encounter this and other bugs.
 
It is uncertain whether or not your system will be added to the list so the best piece of advise is to revert back to your previously working OS.
 
If your heart is set on keeping Win 10 then somethings you can try:
 
1. Uninstall and reinstall power management software.
2. Try running a lower energy profile, not performance.

Hi, I appreciate that this question may have been asked but I have never seen the answer. I have a Lenovo IdeaPad Z580, i3 running Windows 10 Home 64 bit. The HDD wasn't cutting it so I decided to upgrade it. I got my SSD the 'Sandisk Ultra II Plus'. Upon installation I am unable to anything with the new drive. Lenovo customer service wont help and I have no idea what to do. I thought I would just put the drive in and go into Boot Menu and select my USB and start installation but no. The lenovo logo would not even appear. 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). I can't do that Any help would be appreciated no end Many thanks

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.

Howdy y'all, So I have a Lenovo Z580. Model Name 2151. i5-3230M, 8GB RAM, 635M graphics. I also have a desktop PC with an SSD and a Lenovo Z50-70 with an SSHD.  When using this Z580, I do find the access speeds to be slow. Of course, it's only got a 5400RPM. What I'd like to do is either replace the HDD with an SSD or maybe an SSHD. I did some Googling and I have discovered that some people who have tried to do this have had issues with the drive not being recognised. Does anyone know of anything in particular drive-wise that laptop does not support? I know how to fit the drive so that isn't an issue but seems there may be some hardware it can't support? UEFI maybe? I don't know. Also, can I create a new installation disc from the Lenovo recovery partition, or would i have to buy a new Windows licence? Cheers all

I've had a problem with one of the hinges on my laptop for aprox. two months, and I'm still waiting to hear back from Lenovo about it. The problem is that the plastic by one of the hinges has started coming up after it appears the hinge cracked. Now I've taken very good care of the laptop, having had it around 2 1/2 years.  I'm really unhappy about this because I don't want to have to fork out on repairs, and it feels like a waste of money to have bought a laptop which hasn't lasted me because of this simple problem. As a student I like being able to take my laptop around with me to complete work and at the moment I can't because of the possibility of making the issue worse. I was considering purchasing another laptop, but again, I don't want to get another Lenovo and have this issue, and this cost me around £500 when I first bought it and I don't want to have to buy another for that amount so soon, especially if it's not going to last.  Help please?

Answer:lenovo z580 screen goes white

hi jileshz,
 
Thanks an Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums,
 
If the display is showing Properly on an External Display, that points to your LCD as the one causing this,
You can Try doing a Power Drain as the first before taking any other step,
             Remove tha AC and Battery and hold the power button down for 15 sec.
             Then reconnect only the AC Charger and Try.
 
If your system is still within warranty period you I strongly suggest you call Lenovo Technical Support in your location and have the LCD check and replaced,
 
-OR-
 
If your comfortable with reseating some Parts You can check you system Maintenance Manual here, and try reseating the LCD connection you may try other compatible LCD cable aswell,
 
NOTE:
The system board is sensitive to, and can be damaged by, electrostatic
discharge. Before touching it, establish personal grounding by touching a
ground point with one hand or using an electrostatic discharge (ESD) strap

Hi Sandeep,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
I?m sorry to hear that your Z580 is not provide the Battery Backup as expected and also the Bluetooth is not turning ON, below is the steps to access BIOS to enable the Bluetooth and link to download and install LEM (Lenovo Energy Management) for Windows 8.1:
 

To enter BIOS setup utility, press F2 when the Lenovo logo appears on the screen while the computer is starting up. 

Note: To check how the BIOS menu looks and to explore its options Click Here

Then in ?Configuration? tab enable Bluetooth.

As per the query we understood that you are facing issue with system not powering on in your Lenovo Z580 laptop.
