Z580 Problem with led brightness on windows 8?

Question: Z580 Problem with led brightness on windows 8?

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













Solved!

There appears to be an issue with the  Intel  graphics driver. The screen brightness control in Windows 8 settings does not work. According to Intel this is a responsibility of Lenovo (other OEM's like HP are having the same issue with the brightness control) I have upgraded to the very latest Intel Windows 8 64 bit driver dated October 23rd and still cannot brighten or dim the screen. Any suggestions?

Answer:Z580 screen brightness control in Windows 8 (64 bit) settings does not work

Looking on the Intel communities board "Intel 4000 Brightness not working for Windows 8" thread. Does the ideapad Z580 have an "embedded brightness controller"? Does this mean it is a Lenovo issue if so?  Are lenovo working on a fix and how long do you estimate it to take if so?

Hi, the brightness on my z580 (running win 7) seems to be stuck on full, the on screen display when the bightness up/down fn keys are pressed show the brightness to be at 100% no matter what keys are pressed. If I try to change the brightness from within control panel, moving the slider has no effect on the brightness, pressing the fn keys move the slider as you'd expect but the brightness does not change. I've tried re installing the energy management drivers, the num/caps lock drivers, video drivers and the chipset drivers, none of these have effected the problem. Any thoughts?Additionally the fn key that dissables the touchpad doesn't work, it brings up the icon but the touchpad remains functional; the one key theater touch key lights up but doesn't load anything; but the volume up/down keys do work, and so do all the other fn buttons.

Hello, many a times it may happen that some windows update tinkers with the screen brightness settings of the laptop. In such a case the the screen brightness would become dismally low and it would seem that the screen is not 'waking up'. The best remedy is to proceed with a system restore. Ensure that you choose an appropriate restore point so as to undo any recent updates especially from the time you have been experiencing screen brightness difficulties.

Hi TinderboxThe thing is that the drivers posted by Lenovo at their site owever the one at the intel site are are made for not any specific laptop but for many supporting laptops. Also, if we are satisfied by the current state of the computer, there is never a need of updating anything.I hope you understand.

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 cau... Read more

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. See http://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Windows-8/S205-Windows-8-wireless-problem/td-p/884375

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.

Hi everyone
 
i Did some driver re installations because my touch buttons were playing up. I downloaded the drivers off this website. Now when i adjust my volume or brightness the standard yellow bars appear to show how high the volume is and the brightness and then another green bar appears. I would like to unistall the green bar?? . its not a virus or anything. Ive had kaspersky on my laptop since the beginning.  I will post a screen shot to show you what i mean. Also when i game and i adjust the volume it minimizes my game to the desktop and then adjusts the volume.  I would like to know how to remove the green bars.  Its for volume and brightness. i have removed the brightness adjustment driver and have reinstalled it, hoping to solve the problem that way.

Answer:volume adjustment and brightness adjustment problems Z580

Hi Dave,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community!
 
I?m sorry to hear that other Green OSD (On Screen Display) indicator is appearing. Only the standard Yellow indicator will appear if the drivers are installed from our support website, but this issue seems to be with other software installed in the computer which performs the same action. Hence, I would like to inform you to perform ?System Restore? in the computer and check the issue and also let me know if you have installed any other special software after which this occurred.
 
Hope to hear back soon
 
Best Regards

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.













Solved!

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.

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...

I don't know why or what... But, my TV's too dim when using VGA from my laptop to my TV via a VGA cable.

Laptop: HP Pavilion DV5-2135DX running Windows 8.1 64-Bit.

Specs
Drivers

TV: Insignia
Model: NS-24D510NA15

I was going to take photos with my tablet, but, for some reason it looked fine on my tablet.. So, I didn't take any photos of my current VGA issue/problem.

I also tried downloading and installing my laptop's video driver which still did me no good.

Oddly enough, I couldn't get the issue/problem to replicate on a Linux distro. Booted into it, and it wasn't dark/dim when I was using that OS normally for web browsing, file browsing/sorting, watching video, etc.

Any ideas on what I can here? Or, a diagnosis/symptom of my VGA issue/problem. Any help, ideas or assistance would be appreciated.

Hello,I've recently encountered a problem with my laptop. The brightness is either minimum or maximum, it consumes my battery's cycle very fast.When I bought this laptop, I've installed windows 7 32Bit and the brightness worked perfectly.After a year or so, my HDD had some problems so I used my warranty and sent it to Lenovo labs, They've replaced my HDD.I've searched this problem over the internet and found this:http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/documents/ht078787I've updated my BIOS version to 2.03.I'm using windows 7 32 Bit right now, also tried windows 7 64 Bit.Needless to say i've tried adjusting the brightness through the FN+F11,F12, Power options.Is there any solution? Thanks in advance.

Answer:G500 brightness problem windows 7

hi orohev,
 
Welcome to the Forums.
 
After you installed the BIOS v2.03, can you also consider reinstalling these programs in order:
 
Intel Video Driver for Windows 7 (32-bit, 64-bit)
AMD Video Driver for Windows 7 (32-bit, 64-bit)
Lenovo Energy Management for Windows 7 (32-bit, 64-bit)
 
When finished, reboot the machine and try toggling the brightness by pressing F11/F12 or Fn+F11 / Fn+F12 (if hotkey mode is disabled in the BIOS).
 
 
Regards

Welcome to the Lenovo Community !
 
After the down grade to Windows 7 did you install the Chipset driver?  That driver is probably the most important one to have installed since it basically allows the operating system to properly recognize the installed hardware.  Here is the chipset driver......

I had made the horrible mistake of updating my Operating System (Windows 8.0) to Windows 8.1. Anyway, as much as I'd want to change it back, I would have to back everything up and install important programs that I can't afford even if I attempt to get my old OS back.

When I had upgraded, I had to adjust a setting involving my graphics but I had forgotten how I did it and I think I had to change it due to the fact that my brightness wasn't changing. It worked for a couple of days however, I can't instaneously change it anymore. It would show I'm adjusting it (by showing the moving bar at the corner of my screen) but it doesn't apply the adjustment at all. Furthermore, I use my touchpad to scroll (with two fingers) - again, it worked for a few days after I upgraded however I can't use it anymore. Now, I have to manually use the arrows on the side of my screen to scroll or use my keyboard. Please help me, I really want to just get comfortable with this stupid OS.

So I noticed that everytime Windows 7 loads and I'm using my battery then plug into my AC adapter the brightness won't get brighter, I have to manually go into power options and drag the little indicator bar. I want it when on the AC adapter to have a full bright screen and when on the battery 50%. Well Windows 7 doesn't want to seem to remember that because after every boot both the battery and ac adapter will have brightness settings at 50%.

This is a Windows 7 problem and I was wondering if anyone has a solution. Thanks

Answer:Windows 7 Brightness Problem on Laptop

Did you save the Power Option slider setting?

Hi there guys, I updated my laptop to Windows 10 for like 2 months now. It works flawlessly except for one thing, I can't adjust the brightness of my monitor. My unit is Lenovo Z400 with intel core i3, intel hd 4000 graphic card with a dedicated gpu from nvidia (gt635m). Everytime I adjust the brightness, it turns down to 25%... So it means that my display will go from very bright to dim. All I need to do then is to restart my computer and as it boots, i will press the brightness key to bring it back to 100% brightness. It seems annoying sometimes becasue everytime I hit the brightness hardware button, this happens. So my question is, when are you going to update the drivers in your site or is there any way to make this work aside from using the Microsoft Basic Display adapter. Thanks in advance guys

Hello! I have a Lenovo L450 laptop with Windows 10 (upgraded from Windows 7 a few months back). Since upgrading to Windows 10, I keep on having the same problem with the display brightness. Every time the display shows a dark image, video (or similar), the display dims a lot and I am not able to increase it with the function keys. For example: when watching a rather dark YouTube video in full sceen, the display dims A LOT and I can not increase the brightnes with the function keys. As soon as I exit full screen, the display VERY SLOWLY returns to normal brightness and now the function keys work again. After exiting full screen the display is still so dim that, when you press the DECREASE BRIGHTNESS funcion key, it INCREASES its brightnss. See photo attached. PLEASE HELP ME AS THIS THING IS DRIVING ME INSANE! Thanks a lot! Marko

Hi.i have similiar problem also.it was the same thing like on 8.1 upgrade.but for me the brightness is at full and i cant dim it,it's always the same.and there are two more problems.second one is my shortcut function keys(Fn + F buttons) don't work:bluetooth,touchpad(on,off),refresh etc... .Only buttons that work are for volume and brightness that doesnt do anything when i try to lower it down but it shows in upper left corner that the keys are responding and the third problem is i cant duplicate my display but only can extend .As far for the other stuff everything is smooth and fast.even my games got bigger FPS, for example "Counter Strike Global Offensive".i would like to see driver update for Intel Graphics and my keyboard function keys. For now i think there is no fix for brightness and for me duplicate screen problem until Intel Driver for Windows 10 comes out to fix it for our laptop ,and as far as the function keys i would like to know if there is fix now or should we wait for Lenovo driver also. My Model Is Lenovo Z500.6Gb Ram.Intel 3230m.Nvidia GT740m.

Hi,

I have a problem with the screen brightness constantly dimming itself...it doesn`t matter which power setting I try or which route I go down...whenever re-setting,the tab just moves itself back down to the lowest setting...sometimes it stays bright for around an hour and then once again will revert.

I have installed a new hard drive and so this is a new installation of windows 7 32 bit...but prior to this new hard drive I had the same problem.

I have read through similar threads but can`t find a solution so wonder if anybody is able to advise please ? ...all drivers and updates are present on the system.

I have an Acer Iconia W700 that I recently updated with Win10.  The upgrade went flawlessly.  Everything seems to work fine: Bluetooth, Wifi, Audio, USB 3, etc.  But, the only thing I can't make work is the Screen Brightness. Yeah, graphics pop up fine, screen resolution is perfect, touch screen is spot on.  But the **bleep** thing is at 100% screen brightness all the time.  Brightness controls on the keyboad do nothing, and I can't find any way on the tablet to adjust brightness. Under Windows 8.1 I was able to adjust a slider in the charms menu on screen right...no such option on Windows 10. On top of running down my battery faster it's also blinding to look at! I've tried downloading Intel's drivers and installing them but no change.  The drivers listed here on Acer Support are for Windows 8 or 8.1 and go back to the year 2013, so I haven't tried them. Any ideas?<script type="text/javascript">// window.onbeforeunload = function() {} // </script>

Hi, I observed a problem on my new pc with windows 7.

When I try to adjust the screen brightness, the adjustment slider is always in minimum in Control panel>Hardware and Sound>Power Option, as shown in this picture


but once I go to the "Edit Plan Settings", the slider is in maximum position, as shown in this picture


I can adjust the brightness under the "Edit Plan Settings" but not in the "Power option". Something must be wrong here, does anyone know how to fix this? Many thanks!

Answer:Problem on screen brightness adjustment(Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit)

Hmmm... That slider doesn't even show on my PC until I edit plan settings.

Is this a laptop? Is your screen dark?

If you can't adjust the slider on the Power Option window it likely isn't doing anything anyway. It might not be anything to worry about if your screen is operating normally. I know of no fix for it, but others might.

Hi there, I've got a weird problem. I bought my T430 with Win 7 in it. Now, as I've upgraded to Windows 8.1, the display brightness won't get low after a certain point. Back in Win 7, I could lower my display brightness to a VERY minimal point. But currently, with Win 8.1, although I can lower the brightness several points, the display brightness would get stuck at, say, 20%.  1. Here's the brightness to the 2nd lowest level:   2. Now, here's it is in its lowest level. Look, there's still another level to go:   3. Although, there's still a level to go(as the above picture shows), if I try to take the brightness to the absolute lowest setting, ABSOLUTELY NOTHING would happen.   This problem didn't occur in Win 7 Pro. My lowest brightness level was much, much low in Win 7 than in Win 8.1 Pro. It's straining my eyes! Please help! Thanks in advance.

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.

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:Z580 - Problem with Wi Fi

Problem still not solved. Would it have anything to do with having Windows 8.1? If so how can I change back to 8 or solve it? Tried downloading driver from Lenovo, didn't work. Tried sqitching Broadcom from Microsoft back to Broadcom. Didn't work.

Hi,  I have a strange problem that I cannot fathom at all. 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). I have no idea why this would be the case when using a recommended driver from the manufacturer and would love some help. Ta. Link to driver- http://download.lenovo.com/consumer/mobiles/cagt25ww.exe

Answer:Odd Z580 problem.

Did you uninstall the old driver/program first before installing the recommended one?

Hi, I have Lenovo Z580 with i5-3210m processor, 2gb nvidia gt 630m, 8gb ram, 128 + 500(sdd+hdd) So yesterday when i was playing Cod - Ghosts my gpu temp reached over 90 degrees(hwinfo64 monitoring) and kept playing for couple hours. Then the next time i run hwinfo64 it couldn't monitor gpu temp. I tried speedfan and cpu-z still nothing. I thought that the gpu sensors were broken. Then i run Msi Afterburner and there it's monitoring gpu temp. So how can Msi can monitor my gpu temp when others can't? Is the gpu sensor damaged? Help please!

Hi, I have a problem with "My computer" icon. This icon is opened every time on startup of my computer. I know I can simply close it but I don't want it to be open automatically. It is happening since the time when I bought the computer.Please, is someone here who know how to solve this problem?  Thank you very much. Best regards.Tom

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.
 
 
Let me know your findings.
 
Cheers.

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?
 
Update us.

Hi, I'm currently having a problem with my touchpad.

As soon as the usb device is removed it works fine with no issues. I have tried reinstalling the synaptics driver but it hasn't worked. Please help? Thanks.

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!

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:

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

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 
 
Thanks
