Hello...    I recently tried to "upgrade" to windows 8 (I tried doing both, and upgrade and a clean install).  Almost ALL of the Windows 8 drivers, I downloaded from the Lenovo Driver Matrix do not install. I get a varying array of error messages. I also can not get the smart fan (dedusting mode) to work, One Key Theater, Dolby Audio, etc, to work. This has turned out to be a total nightmare. Where, how can I get Windows 8 driver for my Z580 that will install correctly? How, where can I get the Dolby audio and One Key theater to install and work? How do I get the dedusting mode to work? Any and all help will be greatly appreciated.

Can you try the solution that was suggested on this thread (this is for the Z710, which is similar to the Z500)
 
The solution was to manually install the Dolby Home Theater v4 under the C:\Drivers folder after installing the audio driver.

Because I believe Windows 8 will translate pretty well to a 10-foot interface depending on input.

Assume that a keyboard is available for typing

Mouse: the mainstay, but you'll have to have a surface to run the mouse on and it could be a little tricky

Kinect: Works pretty good for the XBOX, but is a litle slow (have to hold to confirm) and can be jittery if your room is not the right size

Wiimote: fairly accurate, I believe to be a bit faster than Kinect

Standard remote: Windows 8 could allow for more control via remotre, as mouselike sensitivity is not needed for most situations, but it can be handy

Wireless (XBOX) controller: might feel a little odd, but I believe can be mapped to do all necessary navigation (and you can stick the chatpad in it)

I bought Lenovo Z580 3 days ago, clean one (without Win7 installed), after first boot I installed Windows 7 Ultimate, to my suprise it took almost 2 hours. After couple of resets I got myself to Windows desktop, put Lenovo CD inside and started installing drivers. Everything went smooth, but I noticed one thing, laptop's performace was really low, I mean, it was reacting slow to mouse movement, switching between windows, etc. I thought it's because I had to do system restart, so I did. It didn't help. So I launched Windows Update, hoping it would help. After getting every single update, I did restart, as asked, but nothing has changed due to performance. Right now, I noticed new issue, when I listen to music and start doing something else, like launch Google Chrome, music starts to creak. The same is with movies, so I think it's some kind of sound issue. I tried playing games, launched Skyrim at lowest graphic settings possible, it got me like 20 FPS. I have no idea what might be causing it, or what to do to fix it. Is there anyone who faced similar issues and can help me?

I got my laptop nearly a year ago, but haven't used it due to the fact my employer bought me a laptop instead to use for business as well as personal. But I left the company, had to give back the laptop unfortunately, and now that I've been on for about an hour I'm having some problems I just don't know how to fix. My wi-fi connection works on every device except for this laptop. It'll work for 10 minutes straight, then stop and when disconnect and then reconnect it'll work for 2-5 minutes then stop working again. So I'll click troubleshoot and it'll come up with "The default gateway is not available," every time without fail and it'll say its been fixed and it'll work but 5-30 minutes later it'll repeat the whole problem and I have to troubleshoot again so it'll work, which never lasts longer than 30 minutes! It's very frustrating, especially since I'm starting to take online classes and now my computer is just completely malfunctioning. Please does anyone know what I need to do to fix this? 

Answer:Help! Wi-fi Issue W/ IdeaPad z580

hi LadyAmber13,
 
Welcome to the Forums.
 
Your issue might be similar to this thread.
 
Can you Try to:
1. Boot in Safe Mode with Networking and observe the wireless connection. If the Wi-Fi is stable, download and run the Mcafee Removal tool. When finished, reboot the computer and observe
 
2. As per jimjam1022's post, disabling Windows Firewal and performing a winsock reset helps solves the issue. To do a winsock reset, run a command prompt as admin and type the following (press enter after each line):
 
ipconfig /flushdns
netsh winsock reset
netsh int ip reset

Answer:ideapad z580 usb issue

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

Question: Z580 Crash Issue

I?ve had my Z580 since last December (so it?s still under warranty), and just recently if I push down on the left bottom corner of the laptop (to the left of the trackpad) the screen will glitch out and the computer will crash. It seems like this would be caused by the motherboard bending and something temporarily disconnecting, making the computer crash. It is also more prone to happen when the computer is warm, from playing a game or some other intensive application. Can I send this in to be fixed under the warranty? (I only have the normal one from when I bought the laptop)

Answer:Z580 Crash Issue

hi dachterm7622,
 
Your assumption is most likely correct. It's also possible that a part of the palm rest area (keyboard bezel) is touching the motherboard that causes the crash.

 I recommend you report the issue to lenovo support ASAP as this should be covered under the standard warranty.

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

Hi all, Question, my over all laptop has been getting very hot.  The casing on bottom gets very hot to the touch.  I seem to think it is the fan.  Every once in a while I get a sound that sounds like a very loose cassette tape re-winding (any one remember them I hope)? I don't want to take it all apart to find that the description points to something else. Any suggestions appreciated. My thoughts with the heat are indeed the fan. Maybe it's trying to run and it isn't getting the correct power causing the sound? When I first heard it all I could think of was a cassette tape that had mileage on it rewinding where the tape sounds loose when it's almost finished. I hope that makes sense.  Can't think of another way to describe it.  Dare I say that VHS tapes did the same sound if they were older and rewinding.TIA,Lisa

Answer:Does this sound like a fan issue? Z580

First off you should go buy some compressed air (canister) from Staples or Walmart. Turn your laptop off, and shoot quick short bursts into the vents & fan intake, while holding the can vertically. NEVER hold the con to the side or upside down as that will shoot out freezing liquid propellant, which could cause severe damage.Lenovo IdeaPad Z380/Z480/Z485/ Z580/Z585 User GuideIf basic maintenance fails, the you should contact Support as soon as possible, especially if still under warranty, as you may have a bad fan bearing. Fans can go bad, especially when large amounts of dust and other debris collects on the fan blades and inner cooling channels.Found a YouTube video where the owner goes to extreme measures for cleaning, yet in some cases it may be best to use this method. Can surmise why he removed the hard drive was to prevent any possible accidental damage. As to him blowing out the debris, would rather recommend a short burst from canned air instead.Oh, and be sure to ground yourself to prevent static discharge! Something this fellow failed to do.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HHa8VCl3Bbo

I bought the Lenovo Z570 laptop with Corei7 processor. Everything was working smooth but then I knew about Windows 8 upgrade offer for new buyers. I bought windows 8 pro and upgraded my system but after the upgrade I found that all my installed softwares including Cybelink Power to Go and other cam softwares got removed after system refresh in Windows 8. Now I lost the one key recovery and one key theatre features on my laptop. Besides these havocs my laptop keyboard layout was different in Windows 8 so I had to format my Hard drive and install clean windows 7 64 BIT and upgrade then to windows 8. As 64 bit direct install require disk type conversion to GPT which I did using command prompt but while this I accidently deleted the Lenovo_PART OEM reserved and it got combined with C drive now.            To get out all these confused setups I request Lenovo to soon release the One recovery software and One key Theatre software for Windows 8 Pro very soon. Also please release some dos program software or any good software from Lenovo which will restore Lenovo_PART OEM reserved disk in Z series laptop this will also help other users who had DOS programs without preloaded Windows 7 and did not had any one key features. I request the Lenovo department to release these software with good testing such that they work on any laptop with any disk format.

Answer:Lenovo should release the One Key Recovery and One Theatre for Windows 8

Hi
 
Welcome To Lenovo Community
 
We are really sorry to hear about the issue you are facing,  
Based from what i read in your post, you have deleted the recovery partion
One Key recovery is a part of preloaded windows which has one feature called as Recover Media Creation
Have you created a set of recovery media if so you can use those to restore your system to factory default?
It will also create the recovery partion. If not you may have to contact local service support from where you can purchase a set of recovery media.
 
The systems which are preloaded with windows 8 have preinstalled one key recovery system.
 
 
Do give this a try and let us know  
 
 
 
Hope This Helps

I just bought a Z580 Ideapad a couple of days ago, I intend to dual boot off of it, either windows 7 and fedora or win 8 and fedora (it came with windows 8 pre-installed) I've so far been unable to get access to the bios from loading in, I've tried F2 which the manual and a number of posts have mentioned is the BIOS key for the Z580, I've also tried the novo key which some other site mentioned, I was able to get into the bios via the charm bar, in windows 8, I changed it from UEFI support to Legacy in the hopes that when I do install fedora and/or win 7 it'll make it easier, but I still don't know how to access bios without windows there's no message when I boot and no matter how many times I restart I can't seem to get it to load in by pressing the keys. I've been searching far and wide for information regarding this, and would appreciate any response that might help me. Alternatively if no solution can be found, I would appreciate if someone would point out to me a computer that doesn't have this deficiency as I'm still within the time frame to return this computer and would (albeit unhappily) return this one in order to purchase another that might not have this issue.

So this means the battery is not charging and the laptop can't function on the battery. Now I've searched the forums and came across a few "battery not charging" topics and I've not found a solution. I've tried removing the battery and pressing the start button for 40 secs (what does that even do on a dead laptop?), changing the settings in energy management and re-installing energy management. Nothing works... I think it may have something to do with the BIOS, which may not properly be reading the "design capacity" and/or "last full charge" information. Could my assumption be correct? And if so/if not, what should I do? I mean the laptop was bought 3 weeks ago, it has to be some sort of software problem right? Please help! Thanks in advance!

Answer:Ideapad z580 battery issue

I have two Z580 i have only had them a few day, so apart from calibrating the battery, as the wear level on both was 7% after calibration it went to 0% , i have had no problems. If you have access to a voltage tester, the service manual describes how to check the battery voltage it should be above 9volts, check page 22. edit : Hwmonitor software below will show you the battery voltage. http://www.cpuid.com/softwares/hwmonitor.html http://download.lenovo.com/consumer/mobiles_pub/ideapad_z380_z480_z485_z580_z585_hmm_1st_edition_feb... John.

Hello,
 
I have been using this laptop since May. It works fine in general, but over the usage period, I have encountered the following error messages (screenshots taken) around 6-7 times, sometimes preceded by a brief screen blackout. Any ideas what this might be about? Solutions appreciated.

Hi, I have bought a Lenovo z580(i3 processor, 500GB HDD, 4GB RAM, 20V, 3.25A) 5years back and it has been working fine till 2 yrs until my adaptor got burst due to power fluctuations. Later I have purchased a new Lenovo adaptor-20V, 3.25A Power Specs, and I have noticed a wierd behaviour with it. The adaptor don't work when I connect it to a plug port at home but it works in the service shop. When I tried to switch on the adaptor in one of my friends home, again it didn't get on. I'm really worried what might be the problem. ADAPTOR DETAILS:P/N 36001651

Now, I know there are like, 4 similar posts, however I've tried all of the solutions. I'm trying to boot from a chrome OS boot usb that I know works. I know I'm on secure boot and legacy is off so I go to try and boot into uefi to change that, however whenever I do it hangs for the longest time then skips straight to the onekey recovery. Tried different ways of booting to it, nothing. Tried just booting the USB drive but of course it won't boot as I'm still on secure boot with legacy off. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Answer:Lenovo Z580 Boot Issue

Have you tried booting from a DVD.  If not the its easy. When the computer starts up press F10.  It will give you boot options. Select the one qith the optical drive. While installing I advise you that you should make a partition of the Hard disk.  Well do you have SSD in your laptop. If yes then how much space it provides you?  Make some research and theen use the SSD for installing Windows.  Try this thing out. Hope it will work for you.

I've got Lenovo IdeaPad Z580, with Core i7 CPU, 4GB RAM and 1TB HDD. Few months ago I noticed that my OS sometimes would freeze (making this freakin' beeping noise) if I moved my computer too quickly from my desk (weird). It got worse few weeks ago and appears to be somehow related to my WLAN adapter. It mostly just simply - isn't working at all. WLAN switch disappears from BIOS setup, etc. like it was not even there. If I'm lucky (like I am now), it would work somehow. Just suddenly appears again in the BIOS etc. I can even use it on my Windows 8, but... if I'd move my laptop just a bit, it'll just suddenly freeze and rebooting results in WLAN adapter not in the system at all, or the connection drops out ("Limited Connection" etc. stuff). Restarting adapter from the system results in "No wlan networks found", wlan switch disappearing or freezing. I tried reinserting the WLAN adapter, it sorta fixed stuff when I did it for the first time, I got a week or so without issues at all, but it came back again and reinserting it no longer helps. First question is - what can I do with this WLAN adapter issue?Second question is - while doing all this reinserting thing, my screws are a bit stripped now (but not completely, it's possible to get them unscrewed without any problems) because I didn't noticed my screwdriver is broken and ruining them. Is my laptop still covered by warranty? I haven't removed or broken any warranty seals in the process though, just screws.... Read more

Hi Guys, I bought this laptop 2 months ago and i replaced the HDD to SSD and when windows 8 came out i upgraded my OS. Before all that i had an issue with windows 7 when i turn on my laptop and during the booting the trackpad freezing when the OS asking for password and i see automatic typing ********************************************* in the password column after sec's stop when i press ESC. I upgraded to windows 8 still do the same even when i open internet explorer or any thing start typing dots .................................................... automatic and the trackpad freezing. This issue happen randomly but is so annoying, i called CS they told my login as safe mode and nothing happen so they told me that issue is software related but even i restore my os and even i did new install then upgrade to windows 8 and no luck. Anybody had this issue before? Thanks

Answer:IdeaPad z580 Freezing Issue

Hi
 
Welcome To Lenovo Community
 
We are really sorry to hear about the issue you were facing,  
 
Since you are not get the same behavior in  safe-boot Windows ,  it's likely a corrupt driver or driver conflict. You might also want to try booting a Linux Live cd. if you get normal behavior, that would likely rule out a true hardware fault and put it back on Windows or drivers .
Also try disabling the trackpad and check
Also try uninstalling the touchpad driver. Then after rebooting go to http://www.synaptics.com/resources/drivers/ and downloaded " Windows XP/Vista and Win7 64-bit Edition v15.2.20"
Do give this a try and let us know the results
 
 
 
Hope This Helps
Cheers!!!

Hello guys, having some trouble with my laptop.. when doing some light work like internet, msoffice the temperature reading always seems to be around 50 to 55 and during playing games like fifa 13 etc it rises upto 75'c.. The "base centre"(not around the fan side) seems to me quite hoter than usual.. So what do you think, is this a problem??

Answer:Lenovo z580 heating issue

75c is normal, as longs as it`s lower than 85-90c+ you will be fine. John.

My z580 laptop screen shows screen artifacts/flickering when I move the screen. When it is left untouched, the screen output is normal. With an external monitor while still using the laptop screen, the external monitor's picture is unaffected when I move the laptop screen.I get the same issue when I move the screen during boot up.I bought the laptop in September so its still under warranty, but I'd like to hear some ideas as to what the problem may be.

Answer:Ideapad z580 display issue

Ok so I want to take it in to get it fixed. I want to take it to one of the service providers/centers listed on the lenovo website. Since it is still under warranty do I need to contact Lenovo first? Sorry for the newbie question. Never had to take advantage of a warranty for my previous laptops. Their hardware failures occured during the end of their lifespan.

Hello, Firstly my apologies for starting a new thread similar to others. I have read a lot of different threads concerning models similar to, but not the same as, my own; the Ideapad Z580, but none of the advice has solved the problem: My battery is failing to charge, either reporting the 'No battery is detected' message, or 'Plugged in not charging' when attempting to charge. When the AC adaptor is unplugged the laptop shuts down within a few seconds So far I have tried: -Shutting down, removing battery, holding down power button for 30 seconds, reinstalling battery, rebooting. -Updating and uninstalling the 'Microsoft ACPI - Compliant Control Method Battery' driver: system won't update because it says it's the latest driver, when I uninstall and restart it has reappeared. -Running a complete gauge reset with the Lenovo Energy Management tools. -Reinstalling Lenovo Energy Management - although I was unable to find the same version so am now using the Z570 software. None of which has worked. Does anyone have anything else I should try? Many thanks, Colin

Answer:Battery Issue with Ideapad Z580

Welcome to the forum! I ran into a similar problem a while back with my Z570.  No matter what I tried the battery would not take a charge or indicate that it was charging while plugged in.  Given the various postings I've seen regarding this problem with the IdeaPads I decided to try different approaches to resolve this buggy behavior.  What finally resolve the problem in my case was using a Linux boot disc to boot up an operating system different than Windows. Once booted, I played with Linux several minutes so the battery would start charging again then I booted the machine back into Windows 7.  Problem solved.  My best guess, there is a bug somewhere between the Windows OS and the hardware of the machine.  That booting the system to a non-Windows environment corrects the problem.

Hey, So I just received my new z580 (i5 3210, 630m, win7) and from the very first time i got the little yellow triangle on my wired internet connection. Diagnostic said that windows can't communicate with the device or resource (primary DNS server) Ethernet port shows LED activity, both green and orange, the computer does get a good IP address (a public one like my other systems, ie 201. etc . I'm able to ping the router, the DNS servers are the same as on my other systems, but the Lenovo cannot ping or tracert the DNS server. I uninstalled mcafee, disabled windows firewall, no changes.  I then booted from a Xubuntu usb drive, it loaded and still i can't connect to the internet, same goes for a full Ubuntu install. I then made the big mistake of accidentally installing ubuntu over the win7 install, so i couldn't troubleshoot drivers and stuff (i'm still new to ubuntu, so i'm just now done installing win8). In win8, same issue and same diagnostic results. I'll try a few more things but was hoping someone here would be able to help.Thanks in advance!

Hello everybody, I have recently bought a Z580 (59362732 Product Number), provided without a pre-installed OS. I sucessfully installed a Crucial SSD (into the place of the HDD), and replaced the DVD drive with the original HDD.After installing Win7Pro and all the provided drivers on the SSD (UEFI Boot was set to Enabled, SATA mode to AHCI before the install) I am experiencing a strange startup problem - it does not appear everytime, but the laptop hangs often right after the Lenovo logo disappears and restarts itself on and on, as if it could not find the partition to boot from. However, in the BIOS setup everything seems normal - it recognises both of my disks. This problem does appear on both UEFI enabled and disabled startups, but strangely, Windows starts without any problems after toggling the UEFI option in BIOS setup -- it does not matter if enabling or disabling it. I have been searching for the solution on the Internet but could not found any solution yet. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks, feki1409

Answer:Z580 UEFI Boot Issue

Hello and welcome,
 
This is just pure speculation on my part:  the SSD is either defective or becomes busy for a time during boot while it does some internal housekeeping.
 
If you go to BIOS setup but just "pretend" to change the UEFI settings - I mean just pause there for the same length of time - does the OS then boot as it should?
 
I've seen something similar with a Crucial SSD. In that case it was on a ThinkPad and threw an error during boot until the SSD had been powered on long enough to complete its internal maintenance.  This was following an SSD firmware update.
 
Have you updated the SSD's firmware to the latest version?

Hi,I have a problem with my Lenovi Ideapad Z580. Below you can see the hardware specifications. My problem is that laptop is lagging (freezing) whenever I run movies, listen to music, youtube, basically while doing anything.It happens randomly, lasts only for few moments (like a scratchy noise). I do not need to restart computer, but it's very annoying and concerning, especially because the machine is only few months old and I would say, quite powerful. Just to give you some information in regards to what I tried so far:  - I checked processes in task manager whenever lagging occures > I noticed no issues. I mean, CPU ussage, Disk Usage etc. are all under 30-40-50% (if not less)  - Checked if laptop is overheating - 100% not the case, laptop is cold, normal temperature. I had a similar problem on my old Acer that was overheating, so I would know if this would be the problem - I ran virus scan - let me say that computer came installed with McAffee Security, which I disabled and installed Avast (free), as I read that McAffee can cause Wireless connection problem (which I had by the way...) - Updated Nvidia card drivers Any help, opinion would be appreciated, as I am getting more and more concerned with this issue. LenovoItem Weight2.6 KgProduct Dimensions25 x 37.6 x 3.3 cmBatteries1 Nonstandard Battery batteries required.

Hello, I bought an ideapad z580 not to long ago with Windows 8 and I have had only one recurring issue with it. My wireless internet connection will go unavailable often. I know it's not my actual internet that is the issue, because it works perfect on my other laptop and I've never had this issue. Every time my internet disconnects, I try to reconnect it but it won't, which results in having to restart my computer and then it works fine afterwards, but eventually it will disconnect again. Like I said before, I know it's not my wifi connection. It works 100% until it disconnects and then, like I said, I have to restart my computer every time. I have no idea why it keeps doing this and I can't figure it out, so I was hoping someone could walk me through some steps to troubleshoot or perhaps if someone just knows what's going on, that would be splendid.

Answer:Ideapad z580 wireless connection issue

Same exact problem for me too! very frustrating. The connection will just randomly drop. It happens alot wen my comp goes to sleep and i wake it back up to find its disconnected, but also wen im actively using it. i have to play around with the connection, going back and forth between connecting and disconnecting until it works. the other way to get it to reconnect is to restart. Sometimes if i let the comp sit for a while it will reconnect on its own. The other thing is wen it disconnects and i look for active networks, my router is still there in the list. if i try to connect its works for a while and then eventually says cant connect to this network. All other computers work fine on the same router, never have disconnect probs. just seems like a very random prob with this computer or its wireless card. im running windows 8 on a lenovo ideapad z580. belkin router. intel centrino wireless n-2200 card. thanks for any help.

Hello. There is something wrong with my WiFi, everytime I try to use my internet connection to ie. load YouTube movie or any page it takes ages to do so. I have to HLSW installed, it has function to show latency on your connection, whenever I don't do anything it stays around 15-20ms, but strange thing happens if I try to do anything at all that requires internet connection, even loading simple page takes it up to 1500-2000ms. Oh, and there are more CPUs in home network and they are working fine, so it's not internet provider issue. I wasn't like that from beginning, it started couple of days ago, tried reinstalling drivers couple times, tried looking for solution here, couldn't find any, do any of you have any idea what should I do to fix it?

Answer:Bluetooth issue with lenovo ideapad z580

hi nairajin,
 
Welcome to the Community.
 
Is there any specific error message when you're not able to transfer anymore files thru bluetooth?
 
To verify if the bluetooth driver is causing the issue, try to:
1. navigate to Control Panel > Programs / Programs and Features and uninstall the Bluetooth Driver and reboot.
2. Open device manager and bluetooth device should look something like this:
 

 
3. Pair the device and try to send some files again
4. If the issue is solved, try to update Bluetooth Driver and observe
 
Bluetooth Driver (Cybertan, Liteon)Windows 8 32/64bit
0mbt09w8.exe321MB
 
Bluetooth Driver (CyberTan, Liteon)Windows 7 32/64bit

Hope this helps

Hello everyone, I frequently face this problem for atleast twice a week. My laptop suddenly disconnects from WI-FI when I move from one place to another(from room to campus or lab to class,class to room) or when it is switched ON from sleep mode or  hibernate mode. I see a cross mark 'X' on the wi-fi bars. When I click to diagnose the problem it shows network adapter has been disabled and when I click to fix it, it then enables the adapter and connects to Wi-Fi but this process is successful only a few times. Most of the times diagnosing also doesn't work and I am forced to restart my laptop. When it restarts I land on a blue screen showing some system crash info for about 5-10 sec and  then it reverts back to normal windows OS login page. Then it works correctly and connects to wi-fi. And this process is repeated if I go to a different place or if I turn my laptop to sleep mode again. Please help me with this issue.

Hello everybody Kindly ask you to help me out. Any help would be appriciated. The laptop Lenovo Z580 runs Windows 8.1. It has Broadcom 802.11n Network Adapter. And it doesn't want to work with Edimax BR 6428-ns router on N band. Nothing gives any result. I tried the following: - enabling WMM- enabling QoS- switching to WPA2/AES encryption (shows network is limited when using this option)- switiching to WPA2 mixed encryption (shows network is limited when using this option)- switiching to WEP encryption- disabling encryption- changing from Auto 20/40 MHZ to 20 MHZ channel width - switching to N band only in router settings (shows network is limited when using this option) The laptop works with WPA (TKIP) encryption in G band only . The max rate speed is 18 Mbit Dwnl/Upl (according to speedtest). I also tried to switch to different channel numbers. No good at all. I installed the latest drivers for Net adapter from Lenovo website. In device manager IBSS Mode shows 802.11b/g Auto without N mode. When rolling back the driver to Microsoft driver the N mode appears in IBSS mode - 802.11b/g/n Auto. However it doesn't help. Any ideas how to fix it?

I have Lenovo z580 without pre-installed Windows and in UEFI mode, bought in Aug'13. For these year and half I have using Linux and that was OK.But two days ago I'he get need Windows and decided to install W7 to my laptop. That was OK too (exclude no built-in LAN driver, but forget it). After all I have installed drivers from Lenovo Driver Page, include BIOS update (up to ...95WW version, I think), I installed ...public.exe part of it and rebooted my laptop. After that I got Secure Boot Block (no idea, how it works, hornestry), I've swiched it off in BIOS and reboot. Finally, I got Starting Windows screen for half-hour, which was rebooted by holding power button. Now I have glitch in top of the Starting Windows screen in my OS and same situation in case of loading from USB-stick. Loading from MBR-drive still alive at the moment. Can anyone be kindly and help me?.. It would be great to do something with it and boot Win from UEFI again.And sorry for my terrible English. ========== A final solution:Use LEGACY and UEFI FIRST values in Boot tab.

Answer:Z580 UEFI issue after updating BIOS

Hello and welcome,
 
Is there a separate option to enable CSM support in your BIOS? Somewhere near the legacy/UEFI setting, probably.
 
If so, turn it on and try it.  Win 7 UEFI mode w/out CSM support will hang at the Windows start splash in some UEFI implementations.

I got my Z580 less than 2 months ago when I started noticing the issue with the battery. At random times the battery will say "plugged in, not charging" and when that happens the wifi also will go in and out constantly until I try one of the fixes posted on the lenovo forums. None of them have provided a permanent fix. Sometimes the fix lasts for less than just a couple minutes. I will provide any details necessary to help fix this.

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.

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.

hi mikee77,
 
The Lenovo Z580 comes with these lenovo pre-installed apps:

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: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.

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

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.

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 have a Z580 ideapad for which Lenovo recommends a clean install of Windows 8 from Windows 7 and to date all attempts to do otherwise ahve resulted in a corrupt installation. Where do I find the installation files for the bundled software that came with the machine? This is promised according to a paragraph at  the bottom of the webpage but does not include non Lenovo software like Disk burning suite (Power2Go etc).

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

Hi, I can't activate my newly updated Z580 as my laptop doesn't have the serial number on it. I ran the belarc advisor to find out what my windows serial number is, and attempted to activate using it. When I did this, I got error : 0xC004C003 It said that the activation server has blocked my activation.

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?

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!
