Answer: windows 8 touchpad z580

hi leofrankly,

Thanks for using Lenovo Community Forums!

First try un-installing the synaptics driver under programs.

> Go to Control Panel / Programs and features / uninstall a program,

Look for a snaptics Software and Lenovo Energy Management
and uninstall those two

Now download and install these drivers

Synaptics Touchpad Driver0mtp05w8.exe90.5MB

Lenovo Energy Managementem8.0.2.3.exe45.4MB

then try the Fn+F6. see if this will work


Best Regards,
Solid Cruver

Hello, my Lenovo IdeaPad Z580 runs on a Windows 7.  Often times, I have to use the F5 button in the work that I do, and I notice when I hit that button repeatedly, my touchpad freezes.  The mouse stays where it's at, and I have to restart my computer to get it to work again.  I looked online, and see people saying to look for the mouse icon on either F7 or F9, but I don't see that on my keyboard.  I also have seen people talking about hitting a button to disable it on accident, but there is no such button by or near my touchpad.  It's extremely frusterating.  Can you help me?  Thanks.

Bought a z580 laptop recently and upgraded to windows 8.  The vertical and horizontal scrolling features don't work with it anymore. There is also no zooming and rotating feature anymore.  I downloaded the windows 8 driver from the lenovo website, but it says that I need the 64bit driver for my laptop.  According to the lenovo download it was for both 32 and 64bit.  How can I get the touchpad functions back?

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 own a Ideapad Z580, and upgraded to Windows 8 yesterday. I noticed that the Intelligent Touchpad stopped working after the upgrade. I installed the appropriate driver, Synaptics Touchpad Driver for Microsoft Windows 8 (32-bit, 64-bit) - IdeaPad Z380/Z480/Z580, hoping it'd work, but to no avail. I also tried reinstalling/overwriting my existing 64-bit driver when prompted by my system to do so.The scrolling, pinching, and sideways scrolling do not work at all; it is quite frustrating. Please help.

Answer:Ideapad Z580 trouble with Intelligent Touchpad after Windows 8 upgrade

I too am having the same issues with the Touchpad after having upgraded my OS to Windows 8 Pro. After upgrading, I received a list of 'Apps Removed' and it actually got rid of a whole bunch of Lenovo (and other) drivers. From that list, here are some, just to name a few:Dolby Home Theater v4Energy ManagementIntel(R) WiDiIntel« PROSet/Wireless WiFi SoftwareIntelligent TouchpadLenovo CAPOSDLenovo EasyCameraLenovo EE Boot OptimizerLenovo MuteSyncLenovo OneKey RecoveryLenovo YouCamOnekey TheaterSynaptics Pointing Device DriverUserGuideVeriFaceWindows Driver Package - Lenovo (ACPIVPC) System (12/15/2011 7.1.0.1).Is there going to be an update for these drivers for Windows 8 compatibility? Many thanks in advance for the help! EDIT 1: Looks like we may be out of luck...  "Because of software compatibility issues, the following functions will no longer work after upgrading your computer. Pre-installed Applications:Energy Management, OneKey Recovery 7.0, Intelligent Touchpad, Office 2010 Starter, Idea life, InstantReset, BootShield, User Guide Common Tool, RapidDrive, McAfee AntiVirus Plus, McAfee Internet Security, and so on."SOURCE

Hi I am the somewhat proud owner of an ideapad z580.I say somewhat due to having major issues with whilst my young daughter is playing games on it, the slightest touch of the touchpad near the middle left and the window changes to either another web page or whatever I had previously open.I am aware myself how to use this function, but as my daughter and wife are moaning at me, I thought id seek advice..Is this problem down to my laptop, or is it down to the fact that the laptop came pre-installed with windows 8?I have tried all the settings re edge motion etc and nothing works...If someone could help, that would be great as I think if it is Windows 8 I may go and purchase Windows 7 which was fine on my old laptop..  Thanks Stevie

I have a relatively new Z580 (less than a month old) and the touchpad is having issues already. I've rarely used it because I prefer the mouse but it's useful for when I don't bring my mouse with me.The issue is that it's completely unresponsive unless the left key at the bottom is pushed down. So I can use it while holding down the left key, but of course it will highlight, drag, etc.. I did not have this issue when I first bought it; it probably only started a few days ago. UPDATE: Ok, I uninstalled and reinstalled the driver. During that I was testing the touchpad and seeing if it worked. After some clicking, it started working normally again. Any ideas what caused this problem? I would like to avoid it in the future

Answer:Z580 Touchpad issue

Hi
 
Welcome To Lenovo Community
 
I am suspecting the issue is caused by some driver files which may be missing or corrupted
But after reinstalling it has started working properly
 
Also I would suggest that you should update your system Windows, Drivers & Bios so that you don?t face such issues in future
 
 
Please let us know if you have any further question.
Hope This Helps
Cheers!!!

Hi, So I bought a Z580 Ideapad a few days ago, and i'm loving it except for one thing thats bugging me. The touchpad. It doesn't feel like it has any flow or as if I have full control. It randomly scrolls and I don't even know how i'm doing it, doesn't move the cursor exactly where I want it to go, occasionally remains unresponive for about a second, and then sometimes jumps around, and i've also noticed I can't move the cursor if i'm pressing a key. I've been reading about a few issues with the Snaptics touchpad but they range from not working at all, to compatibilty issues regarding Windows 8 and gestures. I've also come across a few driver downloads, but they either do nothing, or the cautious side of me doesn't trust them because they're unheard of. In addition, i've read that Win 8 ( which is what i'm using) is new so these problems might be fixed in time. It frustrates me that I love the laptop but the touchpad is driving me insane! I don't really care for the gestures for zooming, rotating or whatever, I just want the basic touchpad to actually work. Is their any solution to this, or is this just how the touchpad is? Thanks!

Hello,3 weeks ago I bought a new ideapad z580(i5/4GB RAM/nvidia 635M/Win8).So far I have been satisfied with it except for something that kinda irritates me.The touchpad got a discolored circle in the middle after around 1 week of light usage.I'm not sure if it's actual discolortion or not as it's mostly visible at an angle.Here's a pic: http://tinypic.com/view.php?pic=288qamf&s=5#.UlM1moZd-3w

Answer:discolored touchpad on my Z580 ?

Hi shadyx,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
I?m glad to inform you that this is not the discoloration of the Touchpad, as it takes pressure on the same spot again and again, it forms an angle which sometime disappears. Hence you need not worry this is not an issue.
 
Do post us back for further queries.

Hi all,I just got a z580 but I am noticing that the touchpad is not so smooth. am i the only one?  The pointer can skip from one end to the other at time and when I am moving the pointer is doesn't have a natural flow. What I do notice is that when my thumb is hovering on the left click, the touchpad senses both my finger (the one actually it) and the thumb - causing it to conflict. anyway in the settings to select the region of the two clicks to not be detected but only for clicking? hope that made sense i would hate to get rid of the laptop on something so minor but it's starting to annoy me that i can keep my thumb on the click for quicker selection. thanks for any help

Answer:Z580 Touchpad problem

Hi Jimmymcnabb,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community!
 
As per the query we understood that you are facing issue with touchpad in your Lenovo Z580 laptop.
 
Please try to scan for the virus, also try to uninstall the driver and check with windows basic drivers for the issue.
 
Also try to boot the system to the safe mode and check for the issue.
 
Also try to connect the external mouse and check for the issue, if the issue still persists then try to reinstall the operating system and check for the issue.
 
 Hope this helps. Do post back if issue persists!
 
Best regards,

2. Download and install the newest Synaptics Touchpad driver from the Synaptics Website or from the lenovo website.and reboot
3. Adjust the Palm / Touch ensitivity and EdgeMotion / Edge Swipe under the Synaptics touchpad settings.

Hi everyone, I recently bought a Lenovo Z580 with Windows 8 cheaply because it was ex-display. The touchpad hasn't worked properly since, and I thought it was because of the display use but turns out from googling that many other people experience this problem. I went by the advice on these posts and reinstalled both Synaptics and the touchpad drivers. After this the touchpad worked, but now every time I boot up the Intelligent Touchpad stops responding and whites out my desktop. Really can't find a solution online- anyone have any ideas? Thanks

Hi, I've look for some posts searching for a fix, but I have not find the solution for this. (I'm spanish, so I'll try my best for translate the windows error as accurate as I can... sorry if I make some mistakes)
 
I've formatted my Z580 and reinstalled Windows 8.1 Pro. Everything fine:
 
-Downloaded drivers (wifi, card reader, bluetooth, hd camera...)
-Updated windows...
 
Everything was working fine, but suddenly my touchpad gestures stopped working, and only was working normal clicks. 
 
I went to Control Panel -> Mouse for look which drivers was installed, and windows error suddenly appear: "Windows can not conect to Synaptics device, please delete the driver... bla bla bla." I deleted it and reinstalled again, but the error still remain. I tried to update by Control Panel -> Mouse -> Update Device and suddenly my mouse dissapeared of the screen and stop working the mouse, no moving, no clicks and not showing the pointer. So I plug and USB mouse and everything ok, but I want my touchpad back with the gestures working at leat working normal.
 
┐What can I do? I've tried a lot of things but nothing worked properly :/ 
 
Note: I've no restoring partition cuz I installed an SSD, so I can not backup to factory status. 
 
Thanks for all of you!

Answer:Z580 Touchpad totally NOT working

Try to install the chipset driver and imei driver if applicable. Go to device manager and try to delete the touchpad driver. If presented with a delete option select ok. Shut down and remove your usb mouse to avoid the system installing the driver for it. Start the unit and examine what is installed in the device manager for your touchpad. Try installing the correct touchpad driver.

Hey all Just a question about the touchpad on the laptop I recently purchased:I noticed that the touchpad buttons were integrated to the the rest of the touchpad. Whilst I am aware that this does wonders for space, I wanted to ask if there was any way that I could reserve that area of the touchpad for just the button function? The annoyances that come from the touchpad detecting my finger on the button (as it normally is) is a lot more annoying that I thought it would be. Is there any way to customise those settings? Thanks in advance

Hi all, I bought my z580 a couple of weeks ago and since then have been having problems with the touchpad. Sometimes the cursor freezes on screen and I have tap the touch pad repeadly and quite hard to get it going again. It frequently opens the charms bar and/or a little battery life/time and date window. It also keeps switching between full screen and normal. Really, really irritating. Would be very obliged to anyone who can help. I've tried installing the lastest drivers for the touchpad but so far no success.

Answer:Problems with touchpad - idea pad z580

1. The Synaptics ClickPad used on the Z580 is one of the worst touchpads in existence. I've owned lots of laptops, used even more at work, and this one is really bad when it comes to the issues you describe. 2. If you set the PALM CHECK to the MINIMUM, the Keyboard will respond INSTANTLY and SIMULTANEOUSLY while you use the touchpad. Otherwise!!! - the keyboard or the touchpad will have a slight period where it WILL NOT RESPOND at ALL!!! >.< Thus, move the mouse, wait, use the keyboard when PALM CHECK is anything higher than mimimum. 3. You can adjust the touch sensitivity and palm check to help reduce the typos you get - usually, slide palm check up just before the red zone, and bring touch sensitivity up a few notches from minimum. 4. CAN'T BELIEVE Lenovo would ship such a poor touchpad with the Z580!?!? It's really horrible! All of the other touchpads (eg. Macbook Pro, Toshiba Satellite, HPs) on laptops of late all work perfectly fine without the stuttering, typos, etc. I also experience. Even going from a 2006 era Macbook Pro to this laptop makes me feel there's something seriously wrong with the touchpad.... but it's what everyone else is reporting.

I have an Ideapad Z580 Windows 7. The touchpad isn't working. I installed the driver restarted the laptop and it works fine. When I close the laptop or shut it down, and turn it back on, the touchpad completely stops working. I've tried the US and the chinese driver, the Intelligent touchpad dirver.

Hi glentastic,
 
Thanks for posting and welcome to the Lenovo Community,
 
Am sorry to hear about your issue,
 
I?d like to ask you to press on FN + F6 together to make sure that the touchpad is enabled if still the same,
 
Maybe you can try to start the recovery for the system through the one key recovery button which is going to return the machine back to the initial state like a new machine,
 
But please take a backup from your data before starting in the recovery and please check the below link for the One key recovery:

My touchpad on my laptop has recently stopped working. I am unable to move the cursor but can usually click. The pressure graph and mood pad usually recognize that there is pressure on the pad but the cursor still doesn't move. I have tried uninstalling the synaptic driver and reinstalling it but it still won't work. I can sometimes get the cursor to move by using the very bottom of the touchpad (over the buttons) but it's not really helpful. Is there anything else I should try?  Thanks

Answer:Ideapad Z580 touchpad not working

Welcome to the Lenovo Community !
 
Uninstalling the driver and then installing a fresh copy is usually the first fix.  If that didn't work then try reseting the BIOS just to rule out a possible hardware conflict.  To do the reset, do this......1. Unplug the charger / adapter. 2. Remove the battery. 3. Press and hold the Power Button for 15 seconds. 4. Re-install the battery, plug in the charger / adapter if needed and power up the system to see if the problem was resolved.
 
If the reset didn't resolve the problem then your problem is most likely hardware related.  I would suggest you contact Lenovo Support for additional service especially if your warranty is still active.  You can find the phone number for Lenovo Support in your country or area by using the link below....http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/supportphonelist_alt1

Hi, My laptop has had certain issues since I bought it a couple of weeks ago. - When I click the x button in a window using the left click button on the pad, sometimes the window behind it closes as well. I tried the double click test in mouse settings and it doesn't seem like a double click is registering. - Sometimes when I open a new window in Firefox, it switches back to a previous window for no reason after a few seconds. This could be a software issue but I haven't experienced it outside of this computer. I've tried disabling add-ons. - The trackpad has twice stopped working completely. The first time was for a minute. The second time was for much longer. I restored the computer to factory settings and it still didn't work. The next day it was working. I've tried installing the latest touchpad drivers from both Lenovo and Synaptics and it didn't help. I realize these problems are all over the place and might be unrelated, but I don't know how else to present them. I appreciate any input.

Answer:Changing touchpad of ideapad Z580

hi monish,
 
Welcome to the Forums!
 
Regarding your questions:
1. Yes, the Touchpad on the Ideapad Z580 is replaceable and you will need to change the Upper Case (Top Cover) and the TP Function Board.
 
Link to picture
 
If the Touchpad is still functional, you just need to replace the Upper Case (Top Cover).
 
2. As per page 86 of the hardware maintenance manual, there's no black Upper Case (Top Cover) where the Touchpad is embedded. Grey would be closest one that you can get. It's recommended that you use spare parts in the hardware maintenance manual for best compatibility.

 Lenovo Ideapad Z580 for about 2 weeks ago and whilst I really like it there are a few problems with it. Certain keys on the keyboard only work intermittently, namely the 'a' the 'o' and the 'e' and occasionally other keys too. This makes typing a real problem as I have to continually keep going back to correct things. I'm a proficient typist and haven't experienced this type of problem before on any other machine. Also the touchpad is so sensitive it keeps activating icons when it passes over them without any need to click. It jumps the pointer to another part of the document and sets off on it's own journey without any input from me! It also keeps swiping in the charms bar then the Start window when I'm in the middle of working ? REALLY annoying! Any ideas please? I don't want to have to take it back as 'not fit for purpose' if it's just a simple thing to correct. Thanks

Answer:Z580 touchpad and keyboard issues

hi hamchris,
 
Welcome to the Forums.
 
Regarding the issues that you're experiencing:
1. Try to boot in Safe Mode and observe if the keys on the keyboard only work intermittently
    - if it is, there's most likely a problem with the keyboard and you need to send it for service).
    - if all of the keys work ok, perform a clean boot and observe it in normal mode
 
2. The touch sensitivity is probably activating the double tapping feature, try to adjust the sensitivity of the touchpad by navigating to Control Panel (large icon view) > Mouse
 
For Synaptics Touchpad:Spoiler (Highlight to read)
For ELAN Touchpad:Spoiler (Highlight to read)
3. The Edge Swipe gesture is most likely trigerring the charms bar, check this thread on how to turn off the touchpad gestures.

I use a mouse and really would like to disable the touchpad completely. have tried disabling Synaptics, uninstalling Synaptics, tried all the Mouse options in CP, looked in the BIOS (no options there), decreasing sensitivity etc. (I've looked this up lots before). Right now I have card taped across it to help in case I forget to press Fn+F6 after it mysteriously re-enables after rewaking. The card just minimises potential disasters but it's a poor solution and doesn't stop clicking - I often involuntarily palm-press it. The card also acts as a mousepad - it's a necessary personal preference (ok). Fn+F6 is the only solution I have but is there anything better - I can see this causing a disaster on PokerStars one day! As I say, I've looked this up before and found it's a common complaint - any chance of a driver update?

Answer:Any way to disable the Z580 touchpad completely?

hi VeryTall,
 
If you already checked the touchpad settings below and sometimes you forget to press Fn+F6 to disable the touchpad then you need to look under the hood to permanently disable the device. 
 
SynapticsSpoiler (Highlight to read)
 ELANSpoiler (Highlight to read)
To permanently disable the Touchpad, you need to:
1. Remove the keyboard (follow page 46 of the hardware maintenance manual)
2. Disconnect the Touchpad Cable  and reconnect the keyboard
 

 
Until an updated driver / BIOS is released that has a feature to disable the Touchpad, this will be the alternative in getting rid of the touchpad permanently.
 
 
 
Hope this helps

I've been having problems with the touchpad for a while now, I'm not quite sure if they're are software or hardware related.  I'm running Windows 8 Pro 64bitSynaptic Touchpad Driver for Microsoft Windows 8 (32-bit, 64-bit) - IdeaPad Z380, Z480, Z580 Version 16.2.10.5 The Synaptic Pointing device will sometimes just stop working altogether. For the last 30 minutes it was displaying on the taskbar that there was pressure being applied to the center and I had no control over the mouse at all. I rebooted several times and it was still displaying that there was pressure being applied to the touchpad. After leaving it for a little while it seems to have fixed it self and worked now, but this has happened on multiple occasions since my purchase. One small thing I noticed was that lots of the time when the touchpad isn't responsive I'm still able to use the left and right click. I'm also able to move my finger around where the left and right click buttons are and it picks up my movement, however, if I try that on the main section of the trackpad it does not respond.  Any help is appreciated.

Hi, Last night my touchpad just died on me (It's less than 3 months old). First I just thought it has frozen and would snap back as it did an hour before but it didn't. Have tried to download the Synaptics Touchpad Driver for Microsoft Windows 8 (32-bit, 64-bit) - IdeaPad Z380, Z480, Z580 but that doesn't help at all. Not sure it actually installed it correctly. The installation doesn't seem to go to compilation and the progress box disappears halfway through the install.  Read on an other thread here that you needed to uninstall the Synaptics software but that didn't help. The software did reappear after startup (http://forums.lenovo.com/t5/IdeaPad-Y-U-V-Z-and-P-series/Touch-pad-not-working-Z580/td-p/1201254). According to that thread you need to remove it from the devise manager too, but I can't find anything relating to that in the devise manager. Tried this thread's solution too but to no avail. https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/IdeaPad-Y-U-V-Z-and-P-series/z580-touchpad-not-working-properly-with-wi....

Answer:Z580 Synaptics touchpad app keeps crashing

Folks, is there no solution to this? Has nobody else out ther got a correctly working windows 8 z580 touchpad?!?! If so what version of the driver are you running even? The most recent one from the lenovo website? Or an older one? Or one from synaptics? I did search thte forums on this before posting, but nearly every single z580 trackpad issue I found was solved by adjusting the synaptics settings... my problem is that this very settings application is what is causing the problem! I.E. A serious error BEFORE the settings application even launches!! Thanks P.S. I have ahad another mouse device (wireless mouse) plugged into the laptop. As I mentioned in my intial post update, I ran driver-verifier and there seemed to be no issue with driver interactions as far as I could tell. The wireless mouse also just seems to be using a standard Microsoft driver, so even less likely to be causing the problems I would have thought...is that correct? I've thought about uninstalling the synaptics driver and doing a clean reinstall, but to be able to do that I'd have to have the wireless mouse plugged in anyway, so any conflict that hasn't been discovered most likely wouldnt be resolved...

2. If you have deleted the recovery partition, the One Key Recovery (NOVO) button will no longer and is unrecoverable. However, check this site as it has instructions that you can try on how to restore One key Recovery function after changing partition size
 
3. As Intel Intergrated graphics automatically allocates video memory, check this Graphics Memory FAQ for Windows

Answer:Ideapad Z580 - touchpad / keyboard issues

hi Will,
 
Welcome to the Lenovo Forums.
 
Just to check
 
Curious, if you don't re-install the Touchpad driver from the lenovo website and let Windows use a generic driver, are you still getting freezing issues while using the Touchpad?
 
If you have the Synaptics touchpad and it works fine with the generic driver then the problem is likey with the driver. Try to install this driver directly from the Synaptics website:
 
Windows 8/7/XP/Vista 64/32-bit Edition v17.0.19
118.1 MB zip
 
If the freezing issue still occur even with a generic touchpad driver then it's likely that the Touchpad is showing signs of imminent failure. In this case, I recommend you contact lenovo and report your findings.
 
As for the keyboard, are some of the keys not working?
 - If some of the keyboard keys are intermittently working then this is likely a keyboard failure and I recommend you report this also when you contact lenovo.

Hi! First of all, sorry for my English, I'm still learning  The touchpad of my z580 seems to be dead when the charger is connected to the laptop, even when the charger is not plugged! But if I touch the non-touchpad surface of the laptop with my wrist at the same time that I'm touching the touchpad,it works fluently. The same if the charger is not connected to the laptop I'm pretty sure that this is a physically problem with the laptop instead of a problem with the drivers... Is issue this happening to someone more? Thanks! 

Answer:z580 touchpad dead when the charger is connected

Hi deuve82,
 
There are touchpad issue threads for the Z580 pointing to a resolution by reinstalling the touchpad drivers.  You might as well try uninstalling and reinstalling the touchpad drivers for your Z580.
 
Here are the driver links for Windows 7 and Windows 8, just download the corresponding driver for your operating system.
 
Windows 7 touchpad driver-Z580
Windows 8 touchpad driver-Z580
 
Please see similar thread where the customer had to hold down the left button to get the touchpad working.
http://forums.lenovo.com/t5/IdeaPad-Y-U-V-Z-and-P-series/Z580-Touchpad-issue/td-p/847725
 
If uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers does not resolve your issue then we have definitely isolated the software issue. From your description of the problem, were you applying a bit of pressure while touching the non touchpad surface of the laptop with your wrist?  If this is the case, and doing so makes the touchpad works then it definitely points to a physical problem.
 
If the sytem is still within warranty you may need to have the laptop serviced.  You will have to contact the support center in your area.  Please see link for the Support phone list.

I fail to understand why on a laptop (which has no touchscreen) why you would want to have the swipe gestures?

Surely most folks don't look at the touchpad in use, so it is often that one starts off to the right (especially when the pad is off centre), and it is natural to move to the left to find where one wants to start - hey presto the charms bar opens, and if you're not carefull all sorts of events occur which you really don't want.

Any way on my Lenovo Z580 with synaptics 8.1 we have the worst of both worlds - there is no easy option in the Synaptics settings to turn off the gestures, so the option is to do registry editing to the key TouchPadPS2_3 - I have amended the Active Type dwords from 2 to 0. However there is a side effect of this.

When booting, there is now a delay till the process finishes - we now get blue circular processes next to the pointer for approx 40 seconds.

Does anyone know what other edits we need to make to remove this delay?

Here is the registry for the right edgepull:

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Synaptics\SynTPEnh\ZoneConfig\TouchPadPS2_3\Right Edge Pull]

Just before Christmas took delivery of my shiny new ideapad z580 running windows 8. I will explain everything first and see where we get.I use this in my home studio and connect a Rane SL1 usb souncard through it and then use Serato or Virtual DJ and timecodes through the CD players. After installing the drivers and plugging in the USB SL1, the touchpad came to a virtual stop. Unplug USB and it starts moving again.I then tried option 2, which was to plug in a 3.5 stereo jack into the audio output and connect this to a mixer. Sound works fine, but again the touchpad comes to a virtual halt. I then left this for an hour and when i came back the touchpad was working. Unplug it and put it back in, then touchpad goes back to dead slow or stop. I thought it may have been that the drivers for my USB SL1 controller where not Windows 8 compatible and as these are not available yet, I went and bought a Hercules USB soundcard, which comes with Windows 8 Drivers. Plugged this in all excited, only to find that the touchpad freezes or moves very slowly when I do. Unplug and the touchpad moves freely. Leave it for an hour and again the touchpad moves freely and everything works. I have tried it in both USB3 and USB2 ports. The only thing I have not tried is using an external mouse. I wrote today as I have seen lots of people saying the same about the Touchpad. Mine is the Synaptics one. I have also read somewhere that the easy option is to use the windows 8 drivers.... Read more

hi kimo_land,
 
Welcome to the Lenovo Forums.
 
Can you try to:
 
1. Make sure you use the original 65W 20V/3.25A or 90W 20V4.5A AC adapter that came with the unit.
 
2. Plug the AC adapter in another wall outlet in your house (preferrably another side of the house) - if this works, the original wall outlet that you used before when you got the issue may not be properly grounded.
 
3. Perform a power drain by:a turning the PC OFF. Remove the battery & AC adapter then hold the power button for 30secs. When done, reinsert the AC adapter and battery then boot into the BIOS by pressing F2. When inside the BIOS, press F9 to reset default settings and press F10 to save and exit.
 
4. Update the Touchpad Driver below:

Hi, I'm having a problem with the left-click on my Z580. The trackpad and right-click continue working fine, but the left-click (and single tap on touchpad, equivalent of left-clicking) suddenly stop working completely. I think both times it happened I was try to highlight some text, so holding the left-click down, so I'm not sure whether that has anything to do with it. It happened yesterday, and again today. Restarting the laptop fixed it both times, but it worries me! Do you think it's a physical problem with the touchpad, or a driver issue? I only bought the laptop in summer  2013, but it was a display model so I guess the touchpad has had more use than most of this age. Still, I thought Lenovos were pretty reliable so hadn't expected a problem so soon. I'm not very knowledgably with the technicalities of computers (but can follow instructions!) so any help would be hugely appreciated as I'm not sure where to start trying to diagnose the issue.

Hi I just got a brand new Z580 and all is well and as expected, except for the touch pad: The touchpad buttons seem to be integrated into the touchpad's touch-enabled part.That means I can move the cursor by moving my finger over the buttons. That's very annoying.The cursor moves when clicking the button, making precise clicks impossibleBut what's worst, while holding my finger on a button, i can no longer move the cursor with another finger! OS is Kubuntu 12.04 LTS EDIT: forgot to ask a question:Is there a way to restrict the touch surface to the part of the touchpad that does NOT have buttons under it?

Answer:Ideapad Z580 touchpad buttons are part of the touch surface

You can adjust your tapzones to ignore the button area.  That helps a bit. Resize the "Tap Zones" to match the right and/or left mouse buttons. Then, go to "Bottom Right/Left action" and select "Button/Zone completely disabled".  After doing that the button areas only function if clicked, but not tapped.

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.
 
Regards

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

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

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

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

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

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

Hey All This is my 1st post here.. I have Z580 laptop with One Key Recovery Option... I have dual boot in it - Windows 7 Home Basic and WIndows Server 2008 R2 I want to create a back up image file of both at the same time, using One Key Recovery, so that I can restore back in future, if need be 1. So, I will log in to, say, WIndows 7 and take the back up image.. Will that take an image for both OS at the same time? Basic question here is does it image of the Hard disk or each OS.. 2. Or do I have to take a separate image of both after logging into respective OS? 3. If answer to 1 is YES, will that restore both the systems at the same time in future using the One Key Recovery solution? 4.

Hi, I have a Z580 with an HDD that is going through a life ending experience. At the current time it does not boot. Although I have salveged most of the data off of it I would like to boot it one more time, in order to clone it. I have tried the repair tools, but they are not working. My repair disk relates to Windows 8 so that may explain why it is not working. I have access to the msdn Windows 8.1 install. I attempted to use that to do a reset, but the reset function provides the message that "the media inserted is not valid" even though this is the x64 version of the disk. I am at a loss how to proceed. Any suggestions? Given how well eveything has not worked so far, I am reticent to do a complete reinstall till I have the product key off the BIOS, but all the notes I find on this subject relate to running windows apps to obtain this, clearly something I cannot do right now.  In terms of replacing the HDD, can I simply clone the working hdd (assuming I get it to work) and then just replace, or is there anything else I need to worry about. I have gone through the forum but most of the discussion appears to relate to pre-windows 8.1 OS. Thanks













Solved!

Go to Solution.

Answer:Z580 DyingHDD, windows 8.1

You should be downloading the Win 8.1 64 bit standard or home version.  Your product key should be automatically detected if the OS originally installed is Win 8.1.As to other thing to worry about is the OKR program. It may no longer work after the cloning process.

Hello! I'm thinking about updating my laptop to 8.1. I already had some experience with RTM which was released on MSDN and it was pretty unstable, I had issues with power management, overheating and Bluetooth - all of these worked properly on 8. Is there anyone with Z580 (or similar) with 8.1 on it? I'd like to know if something improved since then.

Answer:Windows 8.1 on Z580 - opinions

I just upgraded to 8.1 It's nice to know that this big update released day after RTM fixes some stuff. Unfortunately, I still have issues with power management. It worked well on both 8, and Linux, but not here. I get only 4h of battery life and my discharge rate is constantly jumping between 10W and 20W - on 8 it was 7-12W. I think it could be an issue with GPU drivers, because I remember having 20W+ discharge rate when using NVidia GPU on Windows 8. Anyone else has this issue?

Hello Yesterday I've got myself a brand new z580. I picked the version with no system, as I already own a copy of Win8.Everything installed properly, but I'm having one extremely annoying problem that practically prevents me from using this laptop. I mean wireless internet... It connected without any problems just after the installation of Win8. Though after literally few minutes I ended up with the limited connectivity problem. I disconnected from the wireless network and connected again and it worked... for another 10-15 minutes. And it's happening all the time. I've been struggling with this problem since yesterday, so here are the things I've already tried:-installing WLAN drivers for Win8 from Lenovo - I get the message that "The setup program for the target device is not found",-downloading all important updates from Windows Update,-installing the chinese Lenovo drivers as I've seen it mentioned on these forums,-disabling IPv6 (through regedit),-disabling the IP Helper service,-disabling the option to let the system turn off the device to save power,-installing drivers for the WLAN from Windows Update. NONE of the above worked. I'm quite sure it's not the router problem, since the internet works perfectly fine on other 3 computers at home (one is XP and 2 are Win7). I'm totally clueless here and extremely annoyed because I actually can't use my new laptop due to this issue...

Answer:Z580 Problem with windows 8 ?

Hi sahil210695,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
I'm sorry to hear that after upgrading the OS (Operating System) to Windows 8 computer and its devices are not working as expected in the Z580 even after installing the drivers.
 

Bluetooth issue: 
Check if the Bluetooth is ?Enabled? in BIOS, to get to BIOS press the NOVO button, Click Here and refer page no.2 to locate the NOVO button.

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

Then in BIOS select ?Configuration? Tab and check if the BT is enabled, if not click on it to enable, then press ?F10? then YES to save the changes that is made in the BIOS.

 2. Wi-Di driver can be downloaded directly from the Intel as it will automatically scan your computer and provide the link to download the exact Wi-Di driver for the computer.

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 everyone! Been doing some research but couldn't find a solution to my concern.  I purchased an SSD that I want to use to boot windows 7 from in my 2012 z580, along with an ultrabay.  It seems like the general concensus is it's best to place the SSD in the main drive, and if I want to, place the HDD in the ultrabay.  My questions are: 1)  Would I be able to simple run the recovery partition that's factory installed on the current HDD to install windows 7 on the SSD, and be done with it all?  (Being able to use the SSD as my main boot and "C" drive, and the HDD as a media/storage drive) 2)  Can I take out the HDD, install the SSD, leave the optical bay in and do a clean install of windows?  My research seems like the key for my license is in the UEFI Bios.  And if so, then 3) would I have to reinstall all the drivers for my z580 to function? Thanks for all the help!

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. Therefore, upgrading these models to Windows 10 is not recommended." Unfortunately, Z580 is on this list.So there are, according to Lenovo, software and hardwar... Read more

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.

Same issue that you are having,
Resolution was to disable a tray Icon,
    Press Windows button + R   >to launch a run box
Type msconfig then hit enter
Go to startup tab and click on Open task manager,
You will have a list of startup items and look for Bluetooth Tray Application
right click on that and choose Disable.
 
Try restarting and try to trigger a sleep and see if it works.
 
Hope this helps,
Cheers!

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
