Yet another problem with z580 on Windows 8

Question: Yet another problem with z580 on Windows 8

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... I'd probably consider using Win7 instead, though my main cause of getting a new laptop was to be able to use Visual Studio 2012 (which requires Win8). Any help will be highly appreciated!

Preferred Solution: Yet another problem with z580 on Windows 8

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: Yet another problem with z580 on Windows 8

Unfortunately this sounds like the same problem we are all experiencing. There is no fix and the work around is to roll back the drivers. It is not possible to get power management and wifi working together. So if you need wifi then you need to eliminate the power management.

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.
 

Click Here to visit the ?Intel Driver Update Utility? and select ?Check your system for updates?.

 3. Lenovo CapsLock and Numlock OSD Driver is only available and will work for Microsoft Windows 7.
 4. One Key Theatre will only work with the pre-installed OS and its application is not available for Windows 8.
 5. USB 3.0 driver is not required as per the Document ? Click Here.
 
NOTE: Please download the "Windows 8 Upgrade Advisor" to check if the devices in the compatible with the OS.
 
Hope this helps!!!

I changed my laptop power plan's options to make the led brightness 100% when plugged-in ..........When I restart ...... It appeared that it is now 100% but it is actually not 100% ......... When I try to increase the brightness by keyboard the meter appears and tells that it is 100% ..... But actually I can increase more to reach until 100% without any changes with meter ...........So every time I restart I have to increase the brightness from keyboard because windows 8 adjust it as 100% but actually it is not !!!!!!!! ( calibrating problem I think) ..   Windows 8

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

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

Wait for a few minutes then press the NOVO button. You should be presented with a menu. One of the option is to go to the bios. Select it by clicking your touchpad.

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.

Answer:Ideapad Z580 Nvidia GT635M graphics problem (windows 8)

hi AutoXMan,
 
Welcome to the Lenovo Community.
 
I just want to verify if you have also checked the BIOS to see if the Graphic Device is set to Optimus.
 Spoiler (Highlight to read)
Not sure if it's a glitch with the driver though but if you have installed the following, graphics switching between the onboard and discrete graphics should work.

Hi guys, as with most people on this forum I would guess that my arrival is in the same nature. I have a problem, and I need help.And while most people will also have read the same topics as me regarding this problem (that seems to be quite frequent), I have yet to find a solution.So, my problem is I bought this laptop 3 days ago as it has "1GB dedicated graphics" which based on a search of the Lenovo website was an Nvidia GT635m graphics card, happy with this, I bought the laptop. 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. Which would not allow following error; "Graphics driver could not find compatible hardware"- Following another forum suggestion I read I tried looking at the BIOS to ensure Optimus was enabled as the graphics device only to find that there was no Optimus or Graphics Device option in the BIOS at all. And with that I have read all that I think is relevant and now I'm starting to think that the Lenovo I've bought does not have the Nvidia graphics set that I thought when I purchased and I may have spent a lot of money for something that will not do the job for me. Does anyone...

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.

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).

I am running Windows 7 64bit on an IdeaPad z580.I have the problem with black screen upon wakeup discussed in another post here, but upon reinstalling the recommended power management driver (found at the link below) a much more serious problem occurs...Windows will now not startup at all, not normally and not in safe mode, the only way I can access windows again is by reverting to the last known good configuration (ie before I installled this driver).

Lately I've been having a problem with my Wi-Fi, in particular, my Wi-Fi adapter and I've yet to be able to solve the issue. Ever so often, my internet will become 'limited' and will stop working. If I try to troubleshoot, it usually tries to re-set the Wi-Fi adpater, and this will crash the laptop so I need to power it off. The same crashing happens when I try to discnnect and then reconnect to the internet. This problem isn't happening with any other devices in the household, only my laptop.  I've tried to update the driver/adapter but it isn't showing that anything is available. In one troubleshoot I also received the message that 'Broadcom network adapter is experiencing driveware or hardware issues'. I realised that one way to help the problem, is to just put my laptop down, and open it up again, and this seems to fix it for a short amount of time. I really need a solution because it's preventing me from doing work. Sometimes it happens every 30 or so minutes, sometimes more often or less often.

Answer:problem in wireless in z580

Dear Malavshah
 
Welcome in lenovo forums
 

If your computer connects to the network through abroadband router , resetting (powering off and on) the router may resolve the issue. If not using a broadband router, or if resetting your router only temporarily resolves the issue and the error message re-appears later, continue to the following steps.
If connecting to your network using Wi-Fi and using wireless security, your WEP or other security key may not be set properly. Check the wireless security configuration on your computer's network adapter and update if it necessary.
If connecting to your network using an Ethernet cable, your cable may have failed. Temporarily replace your network cable with a new one to determine whether this resolves the issue.

 
Please let me know

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.

Hello, I am having a problem with my Lenovo Z580 (2013)A few weeks ago when I tried to boot up my computer, the computer would power on with the keys backlit but no display would come on the screen.After doing a quick google search for possible problems I took out the RAM (8GB) and tried each block in each slot spearately. When doing this I booted the computer each time, the laptop would come on for a few seconds then beep and turn off and would repeat this cycle without me touching the button until I removed the charger. Now, when I put both memory blocks back in and try to boot the laptop exhibits the same behaviour. Also I should note, due to water damage, the harddrive and motherboard were replaced (by Lenovo) in July last year.

Answer:Boot Problem with Z580

Hi bmcormick91 , 
 
Greetings. 
 
Would the pc completely shut down or just restarts with initial beep and restart loop?
Would you be able to glance on a Lenovo splash screeen when it restarts?
 
Can you try it without a harddrive ?
 
Turn off pc and remove the battery and unplug the charger. Remove the harddrive.
Press down power button for 15 seconds for a power drain.
 
Without a harddrive, place back battery and adapter charger and press the novo key (page81 One key button) .
Would you be able to stay on a novo menu screen and choose BIOS to ( load defaults F10 save and exit?

Answer:Z580 problem with "My Computer"

hi Tom,
 
Welcome to the Lenovo Forums.
 
This is probably because of the Lenovo NSD utility app that's running on startup.
 
Can you try to navigate to C:\Program Files\Lenovo\Nsd and look for a file called Startup.exe and rename it as Startup.old and reboot the PC.
 
Note:
You will need to Show Extensions for Known File Types if you don't see the .exe extension.

(It is the same like in video(not mine) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hRJb5H1MaIE)I tried to unplug battery, reset BIOS, click F8 (as a result of many tries, I didn't managed to enter Win Boot menu), One Note Recovery (cause same bootloop), but nothing helps at all.Of course I've googled and saw this thread, but, as I've mentioned above I could not enter Win Boot menu.Z580, Win7 x64 Thanks in advance for your help,Victor.

Hi andrea89ita,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
I?m sorry to hear that your Z580 has stuttering issue while playing ay video/audio, re-installing the Audio and Display driver should resolve the issue. Also I suggest you to install the Video codec in the computer before installing the drivers.
 

Codec Pack for Windows
Realtek Audio Driver for Microsoft Windows 7 & Windows 8 for both 32-bit, 64-bit
Nvidia Optimus Display Driver for Microsoft Windows 8 (32-bit  or  64-bit) & Windows 7 (32-bit  or  64-bit)

Hope this helps!!!

Question: Z580 BIOS problem

Hi I was unable to enter BIOS, either using the charm button or going through Windows 8 settings.I have uploaded a video showing my Lenovo Z580 failing to load BIOS and rather booting straight into Window8. As it as less then 6 months old I sent it into service. Today I have been informed by Lenovo that I have to pay 91.27 GBP. The  repair cost sheet provided by Medion makes reference to a keyboard part (CCYT4GUK). I am very disappointed by this service and I am not confident that the BIOS issue will be fixed. I have now published my first blog entry, and intend to tell anyone who will listen, either through FB, twitter, or Instagram to be think very carefully before buying from Lenovo. If anyone is able to help me resolve this dispute I would be more inclined to think kindly of Lenovo and Lenovo Support in the future. Regards Jim

I used my z580 already 2 years. In these few days, I found that when I type 't", "v", "y", "m", "b" harder, sometimes it will become "+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++". I I go to a website for checking keyboard, and realise that the num pad "+" is using. Disable the num pad isn't solve the problem. It is very annoying that while I am typing fast, "+" is keep showing. I change SSD last week, I am not sure is this issue related to SSD. I tried to keep pressing the power button for 20 second without battery and charger, doesn't work.

Answer:z580 keyboard problem

hi xx456322
 
Welcome to the Forums.
 
I don't think the SSD upgrade caused the issue.
 
If you look at the NumPad "+" key, does it look stucked when it's pressed? If it is then that's likely the issue.
 
Things that you can try:
1. Clean the key with compressed air
2. Remap the key (or disable it) by using Sharpkeys or similar utility.
 
Article:
Map Any Key to Any Key on Windows 10, 8, 7, or Vista
 
3. If the key is stucked or malfunctioning, you can replace the key by buying parts online (e.g., laptopkey.com)
 
Sample guide:

Let me know if this works for you.

I had bought ideapad z580 lenovo laptop nearly about 1.5 years ago with warranty of 3 years but alongwith some conditions applied. In 1st year, there was some problem with the laptop's right hinge. The lid couldn't close completely because of some internal design issues and caused damage with the lower case. I got it repaired without spending even a penny.But after 1.5 years, again the same problem has arised. I called the customer care but they told to get help from the nearby lenovo authorised centers. I tried to get help from there but they are trying to charge me (about Rs. 3000 to 5000)saying that it is covered under damage and cannot be repaired free of cost.Its true. But as the damage is not caused by my side, its the fault of the design. So, lenovo should fix my issues free of cost as my 3 years warranty is still valid. Could anyone please help me with this?

Hi, I just bought a Z580 with Windows 8 pre-installed. First, I shrunk the C: partition and created another partition for Windows 7, though I couldn't boot the installer, I got this error:"Secure Boot - Image failed to verify with *ACCESS DENIED*. Press any key to continue" After some googling and etc. I thought this isn't a problem with my windows 7 installation disk and there is an issue with uefi firmware. Then I found this:http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=MTIyOTgSo I am assuming Z580 is in the same boat as this one. And probably many other models... I also tried Ubuntu 12.10, had the same annoying error. Is this going to be fixed by any chance? If not, are there any workarounds for using operating systems alongside Windows 8 on these Lenovo laptops?

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?

Hello, Before I had reset my laptop to factory settings I used to be able to change my fan settings by pressing "fn + half moon button" (fn + F1). I used to get 4 options "Quiet, Normal, Cool and Dusting".Now whenever I do that, the laptop just goes to sleep mode.. I also tried changing the settings using Power Management, but I only have the dusting option there. Is there any way I can still access the options?

Answer:Lenovo fan control problem Z580

HiFn+F1 is for sleeping the laptop only. Maybe their was a bug in the earlier version. You should have thermal touch sensitive button above the keyboard.Regards

Hello everyone, its been 3 years since i bought my z580. It was working fine until last week. I am having overheating issues. the bottom of the laptop gets heated fast(5-10 min after turn on my laptop). after around 30 min, the keyboard also kets heated (keys closer to the fan). I saw few of the fan cleaning videos on youtube, but didn't help.  I have attached the temperature of my laptop. plz check.http://www11.zippyshare.com/v/aEEOeTwG/file.html Can someone help me with this issue?  Thanks.

Answer:Ideapad z580 overheating problem

Have you checked to make sure that the air vents are not plugged up with dust?    Computers are excellent dust magnets, so cleaning the vents is needed to make sure air can get inside to cool the CPU etc. A vacuum cleaner works well to get the stuff out of the vents you can see, and I would start by doing that, but your laptop also has a built in dust removal application that will speed up and reverse the fans to try to clean the dust out from the inside (See page 19-20 of the manual below on how to use the Thermal Management button).   Warning,I would still have vacuum hose ready when you press the Thermal Management button as it may make a cloud if it has not been run for some time. https://download.lenovo.com/consumer/mobiles_pub/ideapad_z380z480z485z580z585_ug_2nd_edition_jun_201... Good Luck

hii! i have updated my lenovo z580 to windows 8.1and i have problems with my nividia graphic card  635m ! every couple of hours my core clock  speed get locked at 270 Mhz . i would have to boot to bios and restore default setting to get back my clock speed back ! . is there is a bios update or a fix ? 

Answer:z580 gpu clock speed problem

Hi,
Please download and run "Nvidiainspector" application. Leave in open and enable graphs (second button on the left side). Now, try using your laptop as you usually do. When you experience a slow down check the graphs. It is possible your GPU throttles to lower the temperature. If the temperature on GPU is high (around or over 90°C) before it slows down, then you have found the culprit. If that's the case, then the first thing you should do is to clean the radiator by blowing compressed air into it. It is possible it is clogged with dust.

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

Answer:SCREEN PROBLEM IN LENOVO Z580

hi ANKITTULI
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community!
 
For the Spot you're seeing on the screen
you can look online about Hot pixel/Dead Pixel images and see if that's the same as what you have.
or you can try connecting an external monitor to check if it will still appear and isolate screen issue.
If that's the case Since you have Accidental Protection you should call Lenovo Technical Support for assistance.
 
About your Gaming Issues
You Computer uses high GPU so a simple powersave can affect the GPU Performance
 
You can follow these two step
1. Set the power settings to high performance
2. Configure Nvidia Control Panel's "Power management mode" from Adaptive to Maximum Performance - see guide here
 
Hope this helps,
Cheers!!

try removing the broadcom wifi device driver in device manger, but do not delete it, then reboot you notebook and windows should spot it and re-install the driver, hopefully this will fix the problem. John.

This machine has been working fine until the battery died. On purchasing a replacement and after charging I switched on the machine only to be confronted with a black screen with the icons above the keyboard flashing, then after a couple of seconds the machine re-starts with the same symptoms and continues to start-shutdown-start. I have removed the power adaptor and the battery and held down the power button for around 60 seconds without success. The reset/restore button that is located next to the power button only produces the same result when pressed.During the start-up process, NOTHING is seen on the laptop screen OR an externally connected monitor. I have also tried known good replacement RAM and hard drive and have installed a new CMOS battery but the fault persists.Can the BIOS be updated via a bootable USB flash drive without access to the screen? I seem to have a failed laptop Can anyone suggest a remedy?

Now, something wrong, during the restart, a message shows up "secure boot, image failed to verify access denied, click ok". I clike ok, the laptop can log into win 8 and use it as normal, but everytime, I restart my computer, "secure boot, image failed to verify access denied" shows up.

Hi Akshat15103,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
I'm sorry to hear that there is NSD startup error in Z580 Laptop and ?Lenovo startup application is not working? error is displayed on every startup; however you need not worry as this not a virus or any infection. This is a simple startup error as result of file path missing.
 
NOTE: Re-installing the NSD is not required as none of the applications or the System files will be affected.
 
Below are the steps to disable the NSD of the Lenovo Startup application from the startup menu if the error is re-occurring:
 

Please click Winkey+R together and type msconfig select OK.
Now select Services Tab and at the bottom check the option ?Hide all Microsoft services?.
Locate the NSD or Lenovo Startup application in the list and uncheck it.
Then click on Apply and then OK, automatically a computer restart pop will display.
Restart the computer after selecting Restart option in the popup.

 
Hope this helps!!!

Hi! It's my first such thread so please excuse me if I'm not specific enough. 
I've been having a problem starting my notebook. When it's been shut down for some time I have a real trouble launching it. I get into a menu in which I have to choose between two options which after some research I concluded that they are options for choosing optical hard disk because mine is not working. When I get into the bios, in the information tab it's showing me that my hard disk is not installed. After some further research I saw that other people have had the same problem as me and there is said that they need a new hard disk, because theirs is broken. Here comes the difference with mine problem. After several changing of  "Sata controller working mode" between -compatible- and -AHCI- it gets me to Windows startup repair and after some 10-15 minutes of repairing and some more restarting it finally starts as it should.
 
So here are my questions:-Do I really need to change my hard disk considering that it still works fine, excluding the boot problems 
-Is it possible that there is some virus or something that is creating this mess everytime I shut down my laptop
-What exactly is my problem and have anyone had something similar
