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

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: 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.

You can also refer to the following thread for additional information. Z580 Windows 8 Drivers not working. Additionally please PM me the serial no. of the computer, so we can check the hardware installed on the computer.

Please let me know if this helps.

I tried to recover my PC to factory settings using the CD's that I had created with OneTouch Recovery software. However the recovery failed - perhaps due to scratches in the disk.  My laptop came with Windows 7 Home Basic (64 bit). A question that I have is whether there is a way to get a copy of the OS (I have the serial key with me on a sticker pasted under the laptop). I would really appreciate any help. Thank you.

Answer:WIndows 7 Home Basic download for Lenovo z580

hi Lamb_1803,
 
Welcome to the Forums.
 
As an alternative to the Recovery Discs that you created, have you tried pressing the OneKey Recovery button to restore the system?
 
If that doesn't work, your options are:
1. Call lenovo to obtain a copy of the recovery disc (recommended)
2. Create a Windows 7 Universal Installation Disc and use it to install Win7 Home Basic.
 
In an event that the disc is still not being read (possibly due to a defective ODD lens), consider creating a Bootable Windows 7 Installation USB Flash Drive to install the OS.
 
 
Regards

Hey guys, I have seen a lot of members in this forum having trouble to get wifi and bluetooth working in windows 8. I found a solution to make everything work smoothly. Using windows 7 version of energy management and crap is not at all required. Just follow these steps. Before you begin installing windows, download all latest drivers from lenovo US site. Download touchpad and onekey theatre drivers from lenovo china site.Now, switch ON both wifi and bluetooth. If you keep them switched off, windows 8 will never recorgnise the presence of your bluetooth chip. Do not use windows 8 pro volume licence ISO. Instead use windows 8 pro ISO, which you downloaded from win 8 upgrade assistant (assuming you chose digital download option). This ISO has WiFi drivers needed for Z580(broadcom chip). Perform a clean install, not upgrade. Now install all the drivers, you don't have to restart for every driver install. Restart once after everything is installed. Now, you may face WiFi limited connectivity issue. Just head over to Wireless adapter properties and rollback driver. That wil solve limited connectivity problem. Done. Now enjoy windows 8.  One thing I failed to solve is, the battery meter in windows 8 does not show how many hours of battery is left. If anyone knows a fix to this, please let me know.

So  my Laptop is a Lenovo Z580.. Today it had low charge in the battery.. So I connected the charger but the cable connected to the power adapter was somehow loose.. So the laptop shut down because there was no battery.. But then when it was at the starting windows screen where 4 lights of windows 7 come together and form 4 rectangles(windows symbol).. Anyways it crashes only when the 2 lights appear.. And then tells to either start windows normally or to use STartup Repair... Anyways I have faced this problem quite a few times in the past.. At that time when this error came I went to startup repair then I selected system restore and then selected a restore point... And VOILA.. The problem was no more ....But this time when I went to system restore ... I saw there were no restore points.. I remember it quite well that before 3 or 4 days only I made a new restore point.,... Guys plz help me..

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

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

Answer:Z580-Bluetooth not working in windows 10

If you check the following list, z580 is not supported by Lenovo for Windows 10

I think that might be the reason that your bluetooth is not supported.

Going crazy here and the support so far from Lenovo has been beyond poor so I'm turning to the forums.  I have two brand new Z580 Ideapad's, the only reason we bought them was they were cheap and had bluetooth.  Well I cannot activate bluetooth in anyway on the laptops.  There is no switch, I used the FN+F5 key and all I am prompted with is the Turn Wireless on or Off, nothing about bluetooth.  I've installed, uninstalled and reinstalled the Lenovo Power Management because I saw a number of posts referring to this piece of software.  I checked BIOS and only saw the option for Wireless.  All drivers are installed and reinstalled multiple times.  I see the Aerthos BT stuff running in the background and there are no conflicts in Device Manager, even looked for hidden devices. The laptops are Windows 7 32bit Enterprise, clean installs with only windows updates and ONLY Lenovo drivers installed IE I didn't use the Windows Update drives for anything.  Any help on where to go or what to do is appreciated.  My next move is to return these and never purchase Lenovo again if I can't get this resolved by Friday as my client is not happy at all. James

Answer:Ideapad Z580 Bluetooth + Windows 7/32 Not working

hi jrhaile,
 
Welcome to the Lenovo Community.
 
That's quite a hassle you got there. From what I know, if you press Fn+F5, you will get a "Lenovo Wireless Device Settings" menu.
 Spoiler (Highlight to read)
If you get the menu but you only see the wireless, what you can try is to:
1, Remove the AC adapter and Battery then press & hold the power button for 30secs (this drains the power off the unit).
2. Reconnect both AC adapter and battery and boot into the BIOS by pressing F2, when you're in, press F9 to set BIOS to default and press F10 to save and exit BIOS.
3. Boot into Windows and try to pair a blueooth device
 
If the same problem occurs you can try to reseat the Bluetooth module by checking the PCI Express compartment on page 42 of the hardware maintenance manual.
 
 
Hope this helps.

Answer:ideapad z580 wifi not working properly with windows 8

hi yashikabajaj08,
 
Welcome to the Forums.
 
You're issue might be similar to this thread.
 
If you have gotten the problem after updating the wireless driver either from the Intel website or windows update, try to  rollback the driver from the previous version or perform a System Restore to undo the changes that were made.
 
If the above doesn't apply to you, can you provide the wireless driver of your wifi module and try to boot into Safe Mode with Networking to isolate if there's a third party security software that might be blocking your connection.
 
 
Let me know your findings,

Hi there,
 
I just upgraded to Wndows 10 Home from Windows 8.1; everything went smoothly except for the fact that Dolby Home Theater v4 does not work. I had to reinstall it using the .msi file found in the Realtek Audi folders. I chose v4 over any of the other versions because I like how I can tune the equalizer to my liking and different uses. Anyways, the regular audio works and Dolby is turned on but there is no activity appearing on the equalizer and my music does not change once adjusted. Had this problem when doing an optional audio driver update in the past when I was running 8.1. I do not have the option to rollback the driver after upgrading to Windows 10. Does anyone have a solution to this issue or know what the correct Realtek driver is to make Dolby work? This is one of my favorite features of my laptop and I really want it up and running again!
 
Thank you in advance!

Answer:Z580 - Dolby Home Theater v4 not working after upgrading to Windows 10

For those of you still struggling to find the solution to get your Dolby Home Theater v4 equalizer back on Windows 10, you are in luck. Warning: I highly reccomend cresting a backup before starting this process in case anything goes wrong. There are multiple ways to do that and I usually create a restore point and a system image.Step 1: Install Dolby Home TheaterIf you know that it is installed already skip to Step 2. Look under the control panel to see if it is listed there, if it is go to Step 2, if not go to C>Drivers>Realtek Audio Driver>PCEE4>DolbyHomeTheater.msi and double click and install the software. Restart your computer!Step 2: Uninstall Realtek High Definition Audio speaker driverGo to the device manager and expand Audio inputs and outputs. Right click and hit uninstall where it says: Speakers (Realtek High Definition Audio). Hit scan for hardware changes. If it still shows the speakers listed, right click and uninstall again. Hit scan for hardware changes and it should be gone. Do not restart your computer!Step 3: Install the Realtek High Definition Audio Driver that is compatible with Dolby Home Theater v4Go to D>Drivers>Audio>Setup.exe and double click and follow the process. If it asks for a restart after uninstalling the driver go ahead and do so. Then it will install the compatible driver and ask for a restart again to finish, do it.Step 4: Install DolbyGo to this website:http://www.thewindowsplanet.com/3765/dolby-home-theater-missing-a...

Hi Ash,
Nothing wrong in that report at all.

The server referal error points towards a lack of access to it, is it your ISP's?, have you reset your ssid and password.

The Update error, service not started is spp??

For starters can you run the Windows update Troubleshooter, try updating again.

if that fails can you run/post the results from this link,

Hi @Saheb_12?,Thank you for visiting the HP Forums! A great place where you can find solutions for your issues with help from the community!I came across your post about the Notebook, and wanted to assist you! I have looked into your issue about your HP Pavilion 15-n203tx Notebook  and  and issues with the Wireless connecting. Try resetting the router. Unplug the router and wait 30 seconds before plugging it back in to make sure it fully resets. Here is a link to the troubleshooting the Wireless connection, if you need it. Here is a document on Airplane mode. If Airplane mode is on you cannot use your WiFi or Ethernet, so Airplane mode should off for the Wireless troubleshooting. You can do a system restore. System restore will help if something automatically updated and did not go well on the Notebook and stopped the WiFi from working. When performing a System restore please note remove any and all USB devices. Disconnect all non-essential devices as they can cause issues. Please let me know how this goes.You can say thanks for trying to help, by clicking the Thumbs Up below!.Thanks.

before I had win7. But I switched on win8 I can not turn on wifi or BT.and I do not have to turn it magager WiFI and BT. lenovo does not have a driver for it 

Answer:Z580 windows 8 WIFI, BT

You must install the Windows 7 version of Lenovo Energy Manager for wifi or bluetooth to work.  The Windows 8 version does not allow you to use fn+f5.  Once you install the Windows 7 version, you can push fn+f5 and activate wifi or bluetooth.  There will be compatibility warnings, but it is the only way to turn on wifi and bluetooth at this time.  Do not reinstall the Windows 8 version until Lenovo updates the software, because you will eventually lose wifi or bluetooth again.  Also, you may need to use a program like Universal Extractor for the install files to extract properly. I hope this helps.  It took me lots of searching to find someone who figured this out.

          Possible that the Bluetooth Device (Hardware) is not detected by the Driver installation that's why it is not pushing with the installation.
  You might want to Check under BIOS Setting if Bluetooth is enabled
           
To enter BIOS setup utility, press
F2 when the Lenovo logo appears on the screen
while the computer is starting up.
     >Go to the Configuration TAB
                  And make sure that BT(Bluetooth is enabled)
                  Press F10 to save the changes and exit
Then Try installing this Driver for your Bluetooth
 
Bluetooth Driver (CyberTan, Liteon)0mbt12ww.exe373MB
 
Hope this helps,
Cheers!!

I want to play music on my mobile phone but listen the sound on my E5450 laptop, using bluetooth (not other methods)
I have paired the device with the laptop, but I see no options in Windows about what bluetooth services is Windows offering to paired devices.
The laptop is using latest Intel bluetooth driver for the device that appears in device manager with name "Intel Wireless Bluetooth", with these hardware ids:
USB\VID_8087&PID_0A2B&REV_0001
There is a "bluetooth headset service" on windows with start type manual, I've started hoping it would allow phone to "see" the laptop as a bluetooth audio headset but no change.
I remember old Windows had a "Services" tab sheet on the bluetooth settings but on my W10 is gone.
Is this gone for good from Windows 10, or only on my laptop? Using latest released windows version.

Answer:How to view/enable bluetooth services (bluetooth windows service is already working) on E5450 with Windows 10?

I?m not sure where to find that info, but streaming audio from your phone to the PC would require that the PC act as an A2DP target, and to my knowledge Windows only acts as an A2DP source.

Hi there, I recently got the Z580 and since I've had it, there have been problems with connectivity. The main problem is that it disconnects after going to sleep, as well as sometimes not connecting automatically when I turn it on. When either of these things happen, it won't connect at all (even with troubleshooting - windows thinks it's a problem with the router but it definitely isn't) until I restart the laptop, and sometimes I have to do this twice. I have already changed the power settings on the network adaptors to prevent them from turning themselves off in sleep mode, and I've changed the roaming tendency to aggressive but it hasn't solved the problem. Any ideas? FYI, I am not very knowledgeable in this area, so I would appreciate clear instructions if any are given. Thanks very much.

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

Hello,My new Lenovo Z580 runs windows 8 64bit, core i3 3rd gen, 4gb RAM.The problem is, since day 1,every few minutes the internet stops working. It shows as connected, the router is working, other connected devices run as intended and everything's fine. But internet doesn't work on my laptop. It says "Could not connect to the network". I have tried doing the "keep wifi on during sleep" etc. but nothing works. It just stops working after a while even though I am using the laptop, it just suddenly stops. It even shows as connected, and packets are being received but internet or any application over the internet will not work untill I disconnect and reconnect. Why does this happen?

Answer:Z580 WiFi not working

If you're using the Intel Centrino N2230 wireless adapter, try to update drivers from the intel website:
 
IntelŪ PROSet/Wireless Software and Drivers for Windows 8* (install this first)
IntelŪ PROSet/Wireless Bluetooth Software for Windows 8*
 
After installing the drivers, disable the bluetooth when using wifi to prevent the connection from dropping and observe.
 
If you have a Broadcom/Atheros card, check this thread and try the script made by cbautis2 to refresh the winsock and TCP ip configurations of your PC or you can type the following on a command prompt, reboot the computer and observe:
 
ipconfig /flushdns
netsh winsock reset
netsh int ip reset
 
 
Let me know your findings

Hi all, I am having intermittent problems with my internet connection through Wi-Fi since a windows 10 update around December 2016. My difficulty is that it seems totally sporadic with no pattern. One day I could work on my laptop for hours with no problems, but then last night yet again in a 1 hour session I had about 3 drop outs where I get the ?Connected, No Internet? message in the Wi-Fi window. So my Wi-Fi is still connected, but websites fail to load etc. In order to remedy the problem i have to disconnect from the wifi signal and connect again. I have tried many things to solve the problem with no luck. Contacted ISP as my problems seemed to start when I moved to fibre optic broadband. But they sent me a whole new router, this did not solve the problem. Also, I don?t seem to have a problem with Wi-Fi on any other device in my house.My router can transmit 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz so I split them out to their own SSIDs as the Z580 cannot receive 5Ghz. This slightly improved things but I still get the drop outs.I tried a clean install of Windows 10 and wiped my laptop. I thought the problem was solved by this as I didn?t get any drop outs for a week or so. But sure enough over the past couple of days the random drop outs have started again.Don?t really know what else to try, quite frustrating! Can anyone suggest any steps?

Hi
Please advice on the performance comparison between
- Windows 7 Home Basic versus
- Windows 7 Home Premium
assuming if both uses the same 8GB RAM.

Just a hearsay...that Windows 7 Home Basic is lagging behind Windows 7 Home Premium in terms of performance assuming if both uses the same 8GB RAM. Please confirm whether this is true or not.

By the way, how to activate the Windows Aero in Windows 7 Basic???

Answer:Performance comparison btw. Windows 7 Home Basic versus Home Premium

Hello cheesum and welcome to Seven Forums.

Last question first. This tutorial may help enable Aero. Please note that there is no way to enable transparency on Windows Home Basic.

Aero - Enable in Unsupported Editions of Windows 7

As far as performance, I have not been able to find any specific "speed" tests to say one way or the other.

Difference Between Windows 7 Home Basic and Home Premium | Difference Between | Windows 7 Home Basic vs Home Premium

But if Basic and Home Premium are run on two identical machines (not just identical RAM, but also identical hard drive/hard drive speed, identical CPU, identical programs and apps installed, etc) I would give a very slight performance advantage to Basic simply because it doesn't have the same amount of features that Home Premium has. Fewer features to load usually equals faster performance. But I think any performance advantage would be so slight it wouldn't make any appreciable difference.

I did find some comments comparing Windows 7 Home Premium to Windows 7 Professional.

performance difference 7 home premium vs. 7 professional? - Microsoft Community

Of course, others may completely disagree with my thoughts and that's cool. Healthy discussion and debate is welcomed.

I have recently purchased a new Acer Aspire 5535 laptop. It has Windows Vista Home Premium (WVHP) installed.

The computer came with a number of programs that I am not interested in having on my system. In addition, I was not provided a restore disc. I do own a copy of Windows Vista Home Basic (WVHB).

I would like to keep WVHP as I appear to be eligible for an upgrade to Windows 7 . . . but I would like to reinstall to get rid of all these worthless programs. Can I use a WVHB disc with my new WVHP product key?

Could I install WVHB with the WVHB product key, then use the WVHP key supplied by Acer to upgrade?

Thanks for your time in answering my question. I hope it isn't unclear.

Thanks,

Answer:Windows Vista Home Premium Key Home Basic Discs

I believe that if you install with the Basic disc the process will offer you a choice
of versions. Choose Home Premium and complete the install. Activate with your
Acer's Vista Product Key.

Answer:vista home basic to windows home premium upgrade

I would move all my personal stuff into its own partition if not already done, not forgetting any email client folders you may have.
I'd then reformat and install Windows 7 on a nice clean C: partition.
(I haven't got a "manufacturers" PC though, your situation may be different).
You'll find that once the Windows 7 install disk starts up it is a very quick, in comparison to XP or Vista, installation. Make sure your removable media drive is set to boot first in your BIOS. If you've never changed this boot order then it should be set to first anyways.

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 All -I recently bought a new laptop, a Lenovo Ideapad Z580. It works wonderfully (although I will admit I'm not a fan of windows 8). Problem is, I always seem to have problems connecting to my home wifi connection. Before it worked perfectly, but now I've been having problems with it, seemingly out of nowhere.All the other tablets, phones, laptops and computers at home connect to the network just fine. My laptop will detect the home network go on an endless loop of "identifying," followed by "cannot connect to network", followed by "identifying" yet again.Keep in mind though, if I connect to the wifi on campus, or at starbucks or anywhere else it works perfectly. It's JUST my home network and I can't quite put my finger on it considering that all other devices at home work fine.I updated my drivers, restarted my drivers, ran a release/renew, TCP/IP reset, restarted the router, restarted my laptop, but none of these have worked. In the end, I gave up and simply plugged in an Ethernet cable in.If anyone has any other ideas, please let me know! This is getting frustrating considering my Ethernet cable is only like, 5 feet long.Greatly appreciated 

Answer:Problems connecting to Home WIFI network Lenovo Ideapad Z580

Have a look in your device drivers then network adapters , the one for the broadcom wifi, double click on it and go to advanced then click on AP compatibility mode, the change it from high speed to broader compatibility. I don't know if this will help or not. John.

hi Freshoutoflife,
 
Welcome to the Forums.
 
It's possible that you have a security software / firewall that's blocking internet access or it can be a problem with Winsock (this is the programming interface and supporting program that handles input/output requests for Internet applications in a Windows).
 
Can you try these steps:
1. Open a command prompt as administrator then type the following:
 
ipconfig /releaseipconfig /flushdnsnetsh int ip reset
netsh winsock reset
 
When finished, restart the machine and observe (this resets the TCP/IP connection protocol used by Windows).
 
2. If same problem, uninstall the wireless adapter from the Device Manager (don't delete the driver) then reboot to refresh the wireless adapter settings.

Answer:New z580 with Win 8 Wifi not working properly

Hello and welcome,
 
What wireless mode are you using (g or n)? and what encryption mode?
 
This is a real long shot, but I've seen it lately on a couple of new laptops.  The router is set for WEP security, but allowing the laptops to hook up in n mode.  This is not supposed to be allowed per the n specs.
 
It can lead to a flaky connection.
 
Not saying this is your issue - just one thing to check.

I have genuine windows 7 home basic that was preloaded when I bought the laptop but I upgraded to Windows 7 ultimate using code that I found on internet, so basically right now I have pirated windows 7 ultimate. So how should I upgrade to windows 10?
Should I go back to home basic version before upgrading? If yes, how should I do that?
OR should I upgrade normally and use the product key provided on the backside of laptop?

Answer:Do I need to revert back to windows 7 home basic to upgrade to windows 10? Other Suggestions.

you have to roll back to windows 7 basic in order to activate the license your computer came with and then upgrade to windows 10.
you can use a windows ultimate iso to do this: with windows dvd/usb download tool prepare a bootable usb pen with your win ultimate iso. then when the pen is ready, go to /sources and delete the two files ei.cfg and cversion.cfg, this way you'll be able to install win7 home over your win7 ultimate as an upgrade without losing anything, and then open a command prompt as administrator, enter "slui 3" and enter your win7 home product key; this way you'll have back your legal copy of win7 to upgrade to win10
or you can choose to do a full format and reinstall windows, in the same way.

Hey everyone, just registered ? this is my first posting.

My family just ordered a new computer from Dell recently (through a monthly payment deal with our ISP), and it's still in transit to be delivered. I just recently discovered that the OS is Windows Vista Home Basic, which apparently is non-upgradable to Windows 7. What a rip-off.

I just had some questions. What would be the best path for me to take to get Windows 7 installed on this computer? I would probably need to delete the Home Basic OS and do a clean install, right?

I'm thinking about contacting Dell and having this order canceled or refused and waiting until I can order a model with Windows 7 preinstalled, but I'm quite impatient so I'd be willing to do something that wouldn't create such a delay.

Damn, I didn't think any PCs were still being shipped with Home Basic! This sucks royally!

SM Bus Controller
Video Controller (VGA Compatible)

Please help if you can, I have looked through countless forums and downloaded about 20 files already and I still haven't fixed anything.
 

Answer:Downgraded from Windows Vista to Windows XP Home Basic now I have missing drivers

First thing that needs to be clarified here, when you say "now I'm missing the following" what type of missing are we talking about here? Are the devices and such present inside your device manager and all that is missing here is their drivers? Or when you open up the device manager, all the above and stated hardware is gone? If this is a driver issue the fix or fixes could be relatively manageable. But if this is a case that nothing is there and indeed these devices aren't showing up with anything inside Windows, but you know they are there and still nothing, that might be a manageable thing to deal with, with the end result being perhaps a wipe of the disk and starting over from scratch. Maybe Windows didn't find these items when it was being installed for whatever reason or reasons. If you decide to install the O.S. again, I would first go into your computers BIOS and just with your own eye's, confirm the presence of these items, for if they are in BIOS and register fine, than they should translate over to Windows being able to find them as well. And while you are inside BIOS, doesn't hurt to make sure that nothing is switched off, just make sure all these items your talking about are activated or just active through BIOS and you should be fine.

I had also tried 'Lenovo onekey recovery' but it also doesn't starts properly to reset windows.  Only option I can see (may be) is the windows recovery system with OEM (or recovery media) files (please correct me if I am wrong, and guide with other options).  Can somebody who has the ideapad Z580 with Windows 7 home premium SP1 help to share the initial OEM files (or recovery disc images (ISO files or so) ) so that I can recover my windows from this serious trap. Please advise if my understanding is completely wrong and may be there is any other option which I can use to solve this. Many thanks in advance.

I have been using it for a couple of weeks and I just hate it. I know I know, some of us don't want to learn new things or be forced to change our ways just because of some corporate's whim....

That being said, I have searched quite a bit online, and still haven't found a reliable resource which can help me remove Windows 8 completely and install Windows 7 Home Basic. Have received a lot of contradictory advise.

Dell did not give me a Windows 8 installation disk. Just a drivers CD. I have the old Windows 7 Home Basic installation disk and drivers. Also, I have already activated 8.

If someone asks me to stick with Windows 8 or give benefits of 8 over 7 or tell me to install stuff like Classic Shell it would be a total waste...

Can someone give me a step by step guide or a link which has everything explained?

Regards

Spinning

I have Sony Vaio VPCEA23EN Core i3 processor 2.26GHz, 3GB RAM and 512 Mb ATI Graphics card.
Will the PC continue to perform same or better as it does with windows 7 Home basic 64-bit for all applications which I use smoothly on current hardware.

Answer:Windows 7 Home basic 64-bit Vs Windows 10 64-Bit performance on same hardware config.

Nobody can really know that. Evidence would only be anecdotal at best as I highly doubt anyone else has replicated your exact setup AND uses all the same programs AND has the same usage habits that you have.
Comparing different snowflakes here.
In general I would assume that the more modern OS is going to be more powerful and efficient. Certainly it will be supported longer into the future. Your hardware is modern enough to run it for sure.
Day to day with all the variables you state? You would have to tell us.

I must have been one of the first to upgrade from Windows 7 home basic to Windows 10. I was very happy with it till my hard disk crashed. I use a assembled desktop. I renewed the hard disk of 1 TB, installed Windows 7 from the disk. Managed to find the link and upgraded to Windows 10 again. No problem so far. Now my new motherboard and the processor crashed. The sellers replaced them on warranty and I went through the procedure of installing windows 7 and then upgraded to Windows 10.
Now I cannot open Microsoft Edge and many other apps. When I click to open Microsoft Edge I get a message "Microsoft Edge can' be opened using built in administrator account. Sign in with a different account and try again"
HOW DO I DO THAT?

Please help, My friend Wants to Buy Windows 7 Ultimate but first wants to try the 30-day trial version. He's using an HP laptop with Windows Home Basic 64-bit OS. He is wondering how to do this so in turn I am asking you guys out here right now. Does it need a clean install? He already downloaded a retail dvd for the Windows 7 Ultimate OS ISO. Also one of his concerns is that there is an image backup of his OS with the system factory settings, we're both wondering if it would still be accessible (it's on a different hdd partition) once he successfully installs the Ultimate OS.


He's doing this at first, and then he's planning to try out Windows 7 Professional next and then decide which to Buy to replace his original OS.


We'd really appreciate any feedback about this.

Hey Everyone,

I got a computer from school for my mom because her other one is so old and ready to crap out. Shes not gunna be much on basically email and some music and viewing pictures. I need to buy a new OS for it tho im trying to decide for the XP Home or the Vista Basic. The specs are:

Motherboard: BioStar M7VIZ
Ram: 1024mb but its only reading 992mb (I dont know why)
Harddrive: Western Digital 20gb
CPU: Amd Athlon XP

Which one would be the best OS for it?

Answer:Windows Xp Home or Windows vista home basic

I would lean towards vista as it is the newer os and will be supported longer.

The reason for showing 992mb of ram is that most likely you are using onboard video which is using 32mb of your ram.

I would like to upgrade one of our computer in the office which come with windows 7 home BASIC (not PREMIUM) to windows 7 professional.

but i can't find the upgrade purchase option of this. I am finding the upgrade of home premium to professional but not of home Basic to professional


can anyone here guide me to the right direction.

we are looking for upgrade version instead of full version to save the cost.

Answer:windows 7 home BASIC to windows 7 professional upgrade

You may need to be using the Windows Anytime Upgrade option, although I'm not absolutely certain whether you can upgrade from Basic to Professional.

Also, you can only use it in certain parts of the world.

Windows 7 Upgrade Paths

All you do is buy a new product key for Windows 7 Professional, click Windows Anytime Upgrade, and then insert the product key that will have been emailed to you.

Windows then downloads the files needed for the upgrade and you will be required to activate the system on completion of the upgrade. Depending on how many files need to be downloaded, the upgrade shouldn't take any longer than half-an-hour.

Unfortunately, it doesn't appear that you can use the option with the Basic edition of Windows 7.

http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/w...nytime-upgrade

It would appear you are faced with buying Windows 7 Professional.

Windows 7 Starter is the edition of Windows 7 that contains the fewest features. Windows 7 Starter is only available in a 32-bit version. The Windows Aero theme is not included in this version. The desktop wallpaper and visual styles (Windows 7 Basic) are not user-changeable. Microsoft originally intended to restrict the edition to running three simultaneous applications but this limitation was dropped.[6]This edition is available pre-installed on computers, especially netbooks, through system integrators or computer manufacturers using OEM licenses.

Thanks.

1. Yes.
2. Yes.
3. At least 8GB.
 
If your system is very slow then before you upgrade it I'd suggest doing some basic cleaning and housekeeping, e.g. deleting temp files, defragging the HD, etc. There are lots of web pages that describe what to do and how to do it using free utilities.
 
As for upgrading, if you can wait another couple of months for Win8 to become generally available, Microsoft will sell you the upgrade for $40. Upgrades to Win7 are much more expensive.

As per the query we understood that you are facing issue with Wifi on your ThinkPad Edge E330.
 
The warning indicates that Wifi is not enabled, and to enable it you have to press FN+F9 simultaneously. When you press this key, a list of wireless features is displayed. You can quickly change the state of each feature on the list.
 
Notes: If you want to use this button to enable or disable the wireless features, the following device driversmust be installed on your computer beforehand:

Power Management driver
Onscreen Display Utility
Wireless device drivers

For detailed information on the wireless features, refer to ?Wireless connections? on page 29 from the user guide.
 
Hope this helps.

I have had this HP G62 laptop for almost four years. It has always had Windows 7 Home Basic on it. I had to format my hard drive a few weeks ago due to viruses corrupting my graphics (OpenGL), so I did this and reinstalled Windows 7 Home Basic.

Before I formatted my hard drive, I used a program to obtain my Product Key for Microsoft Office and I also made a note of the Windows Product Key which was different to the one on the Certificate Of Authenticity on the bottom of the laptop. I downloaded an ISO of Windows 7 (which apparently is legal) and put it onto a flash drive and used it to reinstall Windows. I don't remember entering the Product Key when installing, so cannot confirm this.

I received a message saying that the Windows is not genuine and I must activate it. I tried to do that using the Product Key on the COA and it says that the product key will not work with this edition of Windows. The sticker on the bottom of my laptop says it is for Windows 7 Home Premium, but my laptop came to me with Home Basic.

I also tried the Product Key that I obtained from the program before formatting and this key gives me a message saying "The Software Licensing Service reported that the computer BIOS is missing a required license." (Error Code 0xC004F063)

Please could you assist me, here is the MGADiag report.

Answer:HP G62 Windows 7 Home Basic

From the looks of it you did a repair/reinstall using a Retail disk.

If the Key on your machine is for Windows 7 Home Premium - then that is what the machine is licensed for (and why anyone would wish to downgrade it to Home Basic is rather beyond me) - and you need to upgrade to the Home Premium install to get the Key to work. From what I can see of the Spec for the machine, the default is Home Premium.

From where did you purchase this?

When I upgraded I lost use of the bluetooth service on my HP Pavillion DV7 notebook with
Intel Centrino Wireless-N o + WiMAX 6150 chip. The bluetooth driver was not working and identified as the Atheros driver. I went to the Intel site and downloaded and updated the latest Wimax 6150 driver for Windows 10 64 bit and
also updated the laptop chipset. The bluetooth driver was unchanged.
Upon further reading on the Intel site, I read that when the Wimax 6150 is using Windows 7, the bluetooth driver is Atheros, but when using Windows 8.1, or 10, it requires a Wimax 6150 bluetooth driver. Fair enough, except that Intel
does not offer this particular driver!
I tried first to update the Atheros driver, but it said it was the latest one, and up to date. I then deleted the Atheros driver hoping that its replacement would be installed with the Wimax 6150 update, but nothing happened. Now,
in Device Manager, I no longer have a line for bluetooth since I deleted the Atheros driver. Can someone point me to a site that has a Wimax 6150 bluetooth driver for Windows 10- I'd like to use my bluetooth service on this laptop!
