Z580 Windows 7 enterprise problems

Question: Z580 Windows 7 enterprise problems

I clean installed Windows 7 enterprise to make my 12gb ram supported by OS. But instead the Laptop faces many problems :-1. Boots horribly slow (2 mins +) (even resume from hibernation takes long)2. Full CPU usage after booting up3. Frequent lag during usage I guess the problem somewhat relates to GPT formatting of the HDD - Windows didnt allow MBR on EFI disks P.S. No bios update is available, i 've tried all hotfixes, no luck....Please help... !!!!PC specs :-core i5 3210M - 2.5 ghz12 gb ddr3500gb / 5400rpm hdd1gb nvidia 630mintel hd 4000 graphics

Preferred Solution: Z580 Windows 7 enterprise problems

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: Z580 Windows 7 enterprise problems

Try reducing the ram to 8 gb. I don't think z580 supports more than 8 gb ram.

Hi everyone, i updated my Ideapad from Windows 8 to 8.1 (with windows store), and after the process i noted a lot of problems:1) i can't control screen's brightness, loked to the maximal levels (i tried with the normal buttons and also in the control panel, installed the previous version of intel HD graphics and again the new, but nothing)2) wifi connection (always problematic) does not work anymore at home, but in university yes... (i tried here too reinstalling drivers)3) the center of the bottom of the notebook gets hot in a few minutes (maybe where is the graphic chip)4) one key recovery does'n work, so the backup i've done the first day with my computer isn't usableif anyone can help me... 

Answer:windows 8.1 problems on Ideapad z580

Worked great for almost two years not it simply doesn't.It's the Broadcom 802.11 WiFi adapter... It disappears. I tried removing it and restarting, doesn't work.He'll I can't do that always because it simply isn't there at times and when it is it doesn't connect to the internet.If I try the problem resolving thing when it doesn't work it simply makes it disappears and tells me to connect a cable...I also tried to use an external WiFi adapter but it simply rejected it.If you need anymore information just tell me because I really have exhausted my "Computing" knowledge.

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

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

My job has a partnership with MS and we received a CD with Windows 7 Enterprise edition. Now I don't know if this is a complete OS or just a trial (it doesn't say trial/demo anywhere) so I'm assuming it's a complete OS.

There is only one CD and does not state if it's 64 of 32 bit. When I go through the install it does not let me select 64 bit (which I would like to install).

Did I miss something during the install? Did MS only send 32 bit copy?

Also can we install this copy on multiple computers? We have # of people that would like to test it but we are not sure if the same CD/copy will be able to be installed on # of computers (and if it will work long term).

Please help,

TIA

Didn't you get some documentation form MS? Also check the disk for a readme file.

Answer:Windows 10 Enterprise LTSB Desktop Problems

That version of Windows is generally present only in large business installations: and usually under the care of an IT department.

Is the computer with the problem yours or your company's? If the latter, can we assume you have permission to make system changes?

If I had to guess, the problem seems to involve Group Policy and permissions. A system restore shouldn't cost you any loss of data, but of course would cause a need for reinstalling any programs added since the restore point was created, plus the need to reinstall any Windows updates that arrived since then also.

Just curious - if you copy & paste (as an administrator) the shortcuts from the File Explorer folder directly onto your "visual desktop" --- do they work, even if labeled (2)?

... [P.S. ... the Task scheduled to create a daily restore point should work - but you might want to limit the amount of space such restore points can use (can be rather steep) ... but make sure that System Restore shows as "On" for the drive in question in the System Protection settings.

To check:

1) Right-click the Windows Start Menu icon
2) Select System
3) Select System Protection (a blue link in the upper left-hand corner)
4) In the Protection Settings, make sure that System Restore shows as ON for the drives you need it for.

The Task won't be able to run a restore for a drive that isn't enabled.]

i'm attempting to do a clean install on win7 ent 64 on my t400 (2764-CTO) I burnt my disk from an .iso directly from my microsoft partner portal.  When i boot to the disk, it starts up and begins to copy files.  after that i get a small windows splash screen with a black background.  after that all i get is a mouse with a black background.  i can move the mouse freely, but my install seems to stop there.  i do see occasional hard drive activity, but i can eject my disk and get no complaints, so it seems to stop reading the disk at that point. i attempted creating a new cd and i have the same problem.  If i run the disk while in my current windows setup, it opens the setup and will begin the upgrade to win7.  i cancel out of this because i want a clean install. has anyone else run into this problem?  i re-downloaded the .iso last night and will try to burn a new disk from that tonight and see where i get with that.  If that doesnt work i'll try to boot from usb, but i'd really prefer to just do this from a dvd.  also, i've tried -r and +r media with the same results. thanks for any help, Josh

Answer:Problems with clean Windows 7 Enterprise 64 installation on T400

I have a T400s 2801-CTO and did a fresh install just fine.  You probably need to go into your BIOS and set the hard drive controller type to Compatible instead of SATA for the install to get it off the ground.  Although with Windows 7 it should work with SATA just fine out of the box, it would be crazy for it not too.  Anyway, thats what I did and I installed fine.

Hi everyone,

I downloaded Windows Server 2003 Enterprise 180 day Evaluation and burned the ISO image to a CD.

Because i run Windows XP i wanted to do a new installation at system boot so i could install Server 2003 beside XP on a separate partition.

But when the installation starts and says 'Examining disks...' or 'Please wait...' it never starts again! There is CPU usage but nothing happens on the screen, and I have left it for hours at a time!

Please could someone advise me about this problem? I have tried it on my Desktop and Laptop and it happened on both! Both the Computers are compatible with the minimum requirements. :knock:

I'm currently troubleshooting errors during deployment of Windows 10 to Latitude e5550 laptops.
We are deploying with SCCM 2012 build 1511.
Drivers are the newest available from Dell.com.
When the deployment reaches the state where Windows are "Getting devices ready" it reaches 100%, and the text switches to "Getting ready".This screen stays on for 5 - 10 minutes, and then the install are defaulting to where you have to select Network. When this is done the laptop reboots and the the installation fails.
I can see the laptop is never joining the AD domain, but are successfully downloading packages, drivers and software from the distribution points.
Deploying to ther Dell laptop models (e7450, e7250 and so on) and other makes generally, are no problem - ONLY the Latitude e5550.
Have any of you guys seen anything like this or do you have an idea to track Down the problem?I can't find any errors (besides the laptop not being domain joined and the SCCM complaining about this)

Hi, I recently purchased my Lenovo Z580 with i7 and GT640. There was preinstalled Windows 8, and I immediately started to install Windows 7 on my NTB. First think I want to know - what is best order of drivers to install. I tried something but I think its reason of my next problems. I have problem with disabling touchpad by key combo Fn + F6. Icon of crossed touchpad appeared, but touchpad is still activated, and sometimes its really irritating. And for my last problem, which is more cosmetic then functional - when setting brightness of display, the bar shows up, but it isnt increasing or decrasing, only when brightness is lowest, then bar is empty, then i adjust it just by one increment and bar is full filled, then one time more and bar is fully filled. Thanks for your answers and sorry for my bad english.

Answer:z580 - Which password to use if laptop is in safe mode ideapad z580 ?

hi akshu_13,
 
Welcome to the Forums.
 
If you're running on Windows 7 or Windows 8/8.1, you should use the same password that you've set on your account.
 
If you're running on Windows XP, by default, you will see an additional Administrator account and the password is set to none. If you'll be using your own account and not the Administrator one then you should use the same password like in normal Windows.
 
Note:
Windows 8/8.1 can use a Microsoft Account and a Local Account. If you boot in Safe Mode only (not Safe Mode with Networking), you won't be able to use the Microsoft Account login as it requires internet access to verify your credentials, thus, you will need to use a Local Account.
 
 
Let me know if this helps you out.

2 months ago, I can't find the Windows 8.1 disc, so I just found the Enterprise Windows 8, 90 Day Trial, but my app developing app said me to upgrade to Windows 8.1. I have way too much files, and some of them like City Car Driving will be lost, and I will have to pay again. I need urgent help with this.

Answer:How can I upgrade from Windows 8 Enterprise to Windows 8.1 Enterprise?

I just want to be sure readers understand. Your post seems a bit abbreviated.
Originally you had a licensed 8.1 install??? Was it Enterprise or some other addition?
Then... Something happened to it 2 months ago? Your 8.1 crashed and could not be recovered?
Here's where it really gets murky for me.
Is the 8.0 Enterprise related? Is this what you upgraded from originally? You say it is a trial... Was it ever activated?
The licensing path is unclear to me. If what you have on your system was ever activated you simply need to do the call in for activation.
If not, then that is another issue. More detail on the timeline would help sort things...

I have tried uninstalling the Synaptics software and reinstalling but it does the same the things after reboot!!!  I have seen other posts saying to disable the edge scroll .. control panel / hardware and sound / mouse / device settings / settings / edge swipe -- and disable "enable edge swipes..but the edge swipe option does not show up.  My daughter absolutely hates this touchpad and now I am afraid I'm going to have to return this computer....anyone with any suggestions??  Thanks in advance!!

Answer:Z580 Touchpad Problems!!!

hi hanginghelmet,
 
Your issue might be similar to this thread.
 
Cah you try to:
 
1. Uninstall the current Touchpad driver from the Control Panel (large icon view) and reboot.
2. Download and install the newest Synaptics Touchpad driver from the Synaptics Website or from the lenovo website.and reboot
3. Adjust the Palm / Touch ensitivity and EdgeMotion / Edge Swipe under the Synaptics touchpad settings.
 
If you get the same problem, check this article on how to disable the charms bar from being accessed through the mouse pointer.
 
 
Let me know your findings.

Hi,I have been having these WiFi issues with my Z580.I had the motherboard as well as the screen replaced a month ago from an authorized Lenovo service center.However, after the replacement my laptop is unable to detect WiFi signals unless I am sitting right beside the router.I tried installing the required drivers for my Broadcom wlan adapter but to no avail.Is an issue with the WiFi antenna which is somewhere behind the screen.I guess they might not have been fixed appropriately when the screen was being replaced!I am using Windows 7 Home basic edition on a 64 bit system.The WiFi signals used to be excellent until I got the motherboard and screen replaced!

Question: Z580 WiFi Problems

My Z580 suddenly won't connect to the wifi network in my home. Every other device in the house connects no problem. I've had this problem before; last time I found that going into my PC settings to switch off the WiFi and switch it on again worked, as opposed to simply toggling Airplane Mode. This time I've done that multiple times. I've also restarted the router multiple times, disabled and reenabled the network adapter in the Device Manager, forgotten the network and logged on as new, toggled airplane mode. Uninstalling/resinstalling drivers for the Network Adapter seemed to work for about a minute. That's the most success I've had.

Hi allI got brand new Z580 with no system. I've got some problems when installing drivers, everything goes right until I install wifi driver, That's to say that after I install it the sound starts cracking, sometimes quite badly. When I download something and play some music it gets worse. It's also seems to work quite slowly. I can use skype ( with some cracking) but if I download or do other thing and try to use skype at the same time it's almost impossible.. After uninstalling  wifi drivers sound works alright. I use drivers I got from lenovo, also tried the ones from their website, it's all the same . Any ideas ?

Answer:Z580 wifi problems

It seems that the antenna wire has either not been connected with the WLAN card properly or the wire has been damaged completely. The best solution is to ship it back to service centre so that they replace the whole unit.

My video is driving me nuts.  It keeps going dim and flickers.  Sometimes, but not always it also makes a high pitched annoying hum.  Then as quickly as it comes, it goes and everything is back to normal.    It does it randomly sometimes in short spurts, and somtimes in long spurts. I just hooked it up to an external monitor (my tv) while it was dim on my laptop screen, and everything looked normal on the tv, but not my laptop. Would this be a problem with my video card or a problem with the LCD screen itself? If this helps at all I have a video that shows it going from bad to good.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AZ7tX-jMTBo&feature=youtu.be Thank you for your input.

Good  Day Guys, I currently have a Lenovo Z580 with the GT635M GFX card, and i LOVE this machine...

Needless to say my harddrive is stuffed... so i quickly jumped into my car and flew to the PC store, Bought a new HDD and installed it, where after i installed WIN 7 64bit again... and then all my drivers, after all the drivers were installed, i tried to hook up my TV via the HDMI port, and well the TV detects its plugged in, but no signal from the laptop, and the laptop dont detect it in display settings either...  Now i have tried 3 different cables, ive plugged them into different ports on the tv too... I have installed EVERY driver i could find online for the NVIDIA and the Intel 4000 GFX Ive even form...

I just bought a new Western Digital My Passport external hard drive. It works perfectly when plugged into the USB 2.0 slots, but has constant disconnecting problems when plugged into the USB 3.0 slots. It'll disconnect and then immediately reconnect. I tried my brother's harddrive (same model) and it has the same problem. Also, my Logitech MX 1000 works perfectly fine when the bluetooth receiver is plugged into the USB 2.0 slot, but becomes laggy and slow when plugged into the USB 3.0 slot. I updated all the firmware for the devices, drivers for the USB, drivers for the intel chip set, and turned off power saving options for the USB slots. I've searched the web for the harddrive issue and it looks like a lot of people are having them. But my mouse runing slowly worries me because its more than one device. is this a hardware problem? Any possible solutions?

Answer:Ideapad Z580 USB 3.0 Problems

Did you specificaly update the usb 3.0 drivers from the intel website, not just the chipset drivers as they are seperate. My TomTom will not work on my usb 3.0 but works fine on usb 2.0, but i think it`s a tomtom issue. I have a Verbatim 500gb usb 3.0 hdd and it works fine on my usb 3.0 I wonder if you problem is a WD driver problem. John.

Hi! I've had a Z580 - Windows8,i5,6Gb RAM for about 12 months from new. I couldn't work with Windows8 so I rolled the OS back to Windows7 Home Ed 64-bit but my key wouldn't work so I bought a Windows7 Professional 64-bit and installed that. So far so good. Everything fires up and works ok,except I cannot use the internet. The Qualcom Atheros AR9485WB-EG is up and ok in device manager and the adapter connects to my router but there appears to be no internet data flow. The Wireless Network Adapter Status dialogue shows that I am sending and receiving bits, but not enough to prevent even the internet explorer startup page loading. I'm using ESET virus protection and that has never been a problem previously and there is no change when that is disabled.   I've tried the latest device drivers from the Lenovo site as well as older ones which are known to work on Windows7. Also tried moving Windows Boot Manager down the priority list on BOIS startup. Anybody got any ideas that don't invole bigger hammers or pyrotechnics??

Answer:Z580 wifi problems

hi mohamedsamy10,
 
The new driver from the Intel Website probably has compatibility issues with your router that's why you're getting No internet Access. Have you tried to rollback the driver from the previous version? 
 
Upon checking the spare parts, you have the Intel Wireless 2200N single band card which is capable of connecting up to 300Mbps, If you have a dual band router, you may need to configure it to work with single band wifi cards. Try also to disable any firewall / security software that might be conflicting with the connection/

Question: Z580 wifi problems

Hello, I am having issue with my Z580 which has lost all wifi.  When I hover over the wifi icon, it no longer allows me to see any wifi connections, which I know are there as other phones and laptops are connected.  I would appear that the wifi has completely stopped.  This happened a few months back and I was just about to return the PC to where I bought it from and the wifi started working again! If I run the diagnostics everything is apparently running ok but still no wifi.... Any help appreciated, maybe this time it will need returning but its a 4 hour return trip to do so... Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.

The Lenovo Companion is like an app store the features:

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).

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

Answer:Problems with touchpad - idea pad z580

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

For the past week or two, the computer will randomly freeze up and display different bars of alternative grey, black, and white pixels.

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

Hello, fellow Lenovo users, i have a serious and reoccuring wifi problem with my z580 equipped with Broadcom 802.11 n and windows 8.1. I know many of you had the limited connection problem, and I read many forums and supposed solutions, but I think my situation is even worse if possible.  Although the connection is regularly lost, (limited) when i disconnect and reconnect, a massive freeze happens, the sreen stops, the mouse is not moving neither. Afterward, sometimes the system comes back alive. However, even if it does, no wifi is avaiable as no adapter is recognised as installed.Several restart can cure it for some minutes, than the whole procedure starts over. On linux, no such problem occured,thus I assume it is a driver problem. This is very frustrating, please help me if you have any idea.What I tried so far: reinstall the adapter from the lenovo sitereinstall it by windows updatemanually installing the broadcom multiband drivermanually installing the broadcom drivermanually installing the microsoft driverswithing of the adapter sleeping function paland3

So here is the story, I bought my laptop 4gb ram installed and last year i bought 8gb ram to upgrade it. But both rams together made my laptop unstable, it was at 100% cpu usage even when it was idle. So i started using only 8gb. Then i decided to update my bios thinking maybe it would fix the problem. I flashed the 'public' 5FCN95WW version first as instructed, it rebooted then i was stuck at the boot menu. I did some digging and found out that it would only boot on legacy(don't know why). And when i tried to flash the 'private' 5FCN95WW version it said something like 'can't flash same or older version'. Then i did some more digging then found out that i could flash it if i changed the bios setting 'bios back flash'. So i did that and i was able to flash the 'private' 5FCN95WW version.  Now it's running with 12gb ram smoothly. But the thermal management and brigthness controls are messed up. I can't change the fan speed it seems to be stuck at dedusting mode but it's working on auto adjusted speed. Can't change it to silent or any other speed. And brightness level is faulty, it takes like 20 (fn + up)'s to get to max brightness. So here are my questions, -Are you guys working on a fix for thermal management and brightness issue?-Why can't i boot with UEFI? Lenovo Z580INTEL I5-3210M128GB(TOSHIBA SSD(SYSTEM DRIVER)) + 500GB(SEAGATE HDD)12GB RAM(8GB KINGSTON + 4GB HYNIX)2GB NVIDIA GEFORCE 630MWINDOWS 7 64BIT

Recently whenever i hibernated or shutdown my laptop and turned it back on it started to get a black screen,you cant even see the splash screen for lenovo. It is simply black as if was still shutdown. My only solution was to disconnect everything (USB's, Headphones ect.) and then turn it on, it worked for a while but whenever i do that now i still has a black screen. The graphics card has been messing around lately with many games leaving my background green for a split second but i dont really know if that is the cause, i have used CPU Unparking in the past and it has built up lots of heat inside my laptop so maybe some of the components may have been damaged but i dont know if the components are the problem. Also considering its just a black screen on startup i cant get startup repair running.

Hi my name is Drew. I recently got the Z580 as a present and from the start I've had no problems. However today, once I turned on my computer, signed into my user account, and the desktop appeared, I was unable to open any of my programs. I tried bringing up the task manager to see what I could find out from there, but even it won't appear. Instead a window appears saying "The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion." I have windows 8, so I try to drag my finger across the touchpad to open the side panel, but also to no avail. Even when i right click on the desktop, all that appears is a loading symbol. The only thig i am able to acess is the start button in the bottom left corner( i use classic shell so i can have a desktop like windows 7). I am unqble to run any programs or access anything this way either. If anybody can help me with this problem, or can lead me into the right direction, I'd very much appreciate it.

Answer:Z580 having problems once desktop appears

From what I've witnessed, a box appears saying Microsoft Windows is not responding. When I click cancel, it freezes the screen but I can move my mouse. When I click end now, it goes to the green windows 8 background screen and freezes, but I'm able to move my mouse again. Any ideas of what I should do?&nbsp;Update: I can access programs from the desktop if I'm quick enough after startup, then everything will work fine for about 10 minutes before it freezes and the "Windows Explorer is not responding" box shows up. Still have no idea what's really wrong with my laptop.

So heres what happened...

I was browsing the internet one day on my windows xp computer and i clicked on a picture, and this enterprise suites stuff just started poping up and downloading itself to my computer. I tried to close it but more stuff started poping up.

I cant figure out how to remove it. I tried looking in my computer and its not there. Its hiding somewhere and i cant figure out where.

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 guys!It's nice to meet you, I'm new to lenovo experience As a matter of fact i bought a Lenovo ideapad z580 yesterday, because my previous laptop failed really badly 2 days ago and I'm studying architecture 6-th year and I'm in exam session. That's why my time is really limited. The parameters of the notebook are:CPU: Intel Core i7-3520M at 2.9 GHz8 GB RAM - 1333 MHzHDD - 1000 GBNViDiA GeForce GT 640M I installed all drivers required really fast and easy from the notebook CD (really satisfied by that ) on Windows 7 64bit Ultimate.My problem is about the work of the NVIDIA graphics adapter with Autodesk products. I'm used to Radeon graphic adapters and seriously I require some help I'm new to the whole thing that notebooks include 2 graphic adapters but I got the basics really really fast - Intel HD 4000 is running for all basic stuff and programs except when NViDiA decides to kick in when required or I press left button on the desired program to run and choose to be powered by the NViDiA. At BIOS my NViDiA Optimus oiption is enabled, as well and I'm pretty sure the video adapter is working properly but... now I will explain the problem: When I start Autodesk Program (I work with 3) like Autocad 2013, Revit 2013, 3ds MAX Design 2013 with the NViDiA - the programs give error and close with prompt to send feedback to autodesk.

I'm in the process of setting up a new work laptop with Win7 Enterprise and I'm having two issues:

1- Image previews/thumbnails are not displaying in Explorer.
2- Most of the files I've copied from my old system have a grey "X" overlay on the icon.

These issues may very well be related, but I really don't know. As best I can tell the grey "X" has to do with files being archived to tape (?), but I have no idea why this is happening. All I did was transfer the files from one laptop to another using an external hard drive. Removing the "A" file attribute does not fix it.

As far as the thumbnails, I've ensured that "Always show icons, never thumbnails" is not set. I've deleted the cached thumbnail files. Still no luck.

Here's a screenshot that illustrates both issues: http://i88.photobucket.com/albums/k1...nShot00322.jpg

So the problem is with my sister's laptop that was I guess "lent" out by the school district for online school. As such I guess it came with a few programs for education purposes.

Hi all, I got this laptop around 8 months ago for a ridiculously low price (it was new from Staples, though), but it's been having some problems lately, especially after I upgraded to Windows 8.1 around Thanksgiving.  For schoolwork-related reasons, I have to reboot the PC quite frequently to switch between Linux and Windows, or boot from other media.  Back in the day, before Windows 8.1, I could press the Novo button (next to the power button) and select a boot device. Now, the Novo button still brings up the first menu, but nothing in the menu works anymore.  Regardless of what I choose from [Normal Startup, BIOS Setup, Boot Menu, System Recovery], it will just boot straight into Windows 8.1.  This is also quite annoying, since I can't access the BIOS anymore without popping out the hard drive (which stops Windows 8.1 from booting).  I have read online about other people having this problem, but none of the solutions worked for me.  One guy managed to get his laptop approved for repair at a Lenovo Support Center. tl;dr: I can't use the Novo button to boot a device or access the BIOS after installing Windows 8.1... anybody have any ideas?! I've also been having some other problems that have been somewhat on and off since I got the laptop.  These aren't as annoying as the BIOS/boot proboem, but if anybody just happens to know how to fix the problem, then I'd still be very grateful.  The first is that the wi-fi random...

Answer:Cant access BIOS with Novo button + other problems [Z580]

Hi. Can't you get into BIOS by just pressing F2 instead? (I'm guessing it's a no because of what you said: "I have read online about other people having this problem, but none of the solutions worked for me" ) about the clock, I am wondering if there's an option (either in windows or in bios) which says how to store the clock: in Local or in UTC(GMT) format   - wondering if this has some kind of effect which causes it to do what you said somehowEDIT: I'm wondering by how many hours does it desync ? and is it the same amount of hours always? and what's your timezone difference from UTC(GMT) ? You could try testing: set your timezone to UTC and see if it desyncs anymore. (EDIT2: I mean if you could live with the clock being off by some hours for a while, while you're doing this test, assuming you still sync it to windows time server while in utc time zone) i've no other ideas guesses

The point is I can't go to the BIOS with lenovo recovery button. I had to pull out battery of bios and then I could go there. When I changed some options and saved the settings, the bios had still same options like before. I can't swtich the boot priorities. However I inserted boot flash with WIN10 to install that, but I can't because of the boot priorities. I am stucked. Also I tried all key shortcuts, It does nothing. I really don't want to  take out the HDD and re-install the windows in different PC via sata.  Can you tell me how should I boot the flash or CD with windows when I can't set up the boot priotiry? All I can see is blackscreen.  The point with lenovo recovery button is also weird. When i start laptop via this button I see the menu with options but after I choose one of them for example ''recovery" or "bios " It does nothing.  Thanks, David Byrtus

Hi all.

I have searched in internet and have understood that ultimate and enterprise editions have no diffrences exept licensing.

But i have heard from some friends that enterprise edition have some problems with some games and programs, while ultimate edition does not.

Is that right ?

thanks.

Answer:Has Enterprise, problems with some programs compared to Ultimate ?

What you found when you searched is correct. Ultimate and Enterprise are no different aside from licensing/how they activate. Programs are just as compatible across the board.

Can i know the causes of link breaks between different buildings of a small enterprise installation?

The topology of the network is:
-building 1 connected to building 2 using a Wifi Bridge.
-building 2 connected to building 3 using a wired connection.
-building 2 connected to building 4 using a wired connection.
-building 4 connected to building 5 using a wired connection.

the link breaks were mainly on the link Building 2 / Building 4 / Building 2, Building 2 / Building 1.
When we replaced the switch located at the entrance of Building 5, the problem was solved.
After few days, the problem was occured again.
These results were found:
- a break (1 ping) from Building 3 to Building 2.
- followed by a prolonged break (4 or 5 pings) from Building 2 to Building 1.
- then a break (1 ping) from Building 2 to Building 5.

We have inserted a new switch between the antenna start (WiFi bridge) and the Building 2 switch. This improves the situation (a maximum ping from Building 2 to Building 1 in case of break link).
Exploitation is not unduly disrupted, but the underlying problem is not resolved.

I attached all the needed configuration and log files.
Thank you in advance for your help

Hi there
worked exactly as "It said on the tin".

Ran the .exe file from the ISO (using the virtual mounter system in W8.1 (W8 has this too).

Gave me the option to keep applications and settings (Didn't on RTM).

Installed fine -- you need to DISCONNECT from the Internet at Ms account prompt and press back button - continues with local account - re-connect internet.

To activate Windows enter your product key from TechNet - the RTM one works - don't waste retrieve another key - especially as the RTM one is valid.

Re-boot after activation to get rid of watermark.

Working perfectly -- except the IE11 back navigation - that still hasn't been fixed - I posted on that in the browsers section.

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

Hi ! McAfee Antivirus Update Causes Problems for Home and Enterprise Customers
"A buggy update released Friday by security vendor McAfee for its consumer and enterprise antivirus products, left the computers of its customers unprotected and, in some cases, unable to access the Internet.
The incident affected both home and business users, some of whom were still trying to sort out the problems caused by the updates on Monday and Tuesday, according to messages posted on McAfee's community forums and Facebook page.
The problems were introduced by McAfee updates DAT 6807, released on Friday, and the subsequent DAT 6808, depending on which product was used.
After installing these updates some home users started encountering errors when accessing the McAfee Security Center console, which prevented them from performing any action inside the program. Other users experienced a loss of Internet connection on their computers.
McAfee confirmed these problems on Sunday in a technical document that described two possible solutions, both requiring users to update to a newly released DAT 6809 file."

Hello,

I've been looking all over the internet for help, and decided to make my own post!

I am trying to connect my vista enterprise 64-bit desktop to my XP laptop via a cross-over cable. Now, my vista-enterprise is not connected to any internet, only to this single cross-over cable. And my xp-laptop is connected to the internet via a wireless connection.

I tried everything, made a internet gateway with 'set up a home or small office network', tried rouletting with IP-adresses for AGES! I tried everything. I think I really need a step-by-step clear guide that tells me what to do, every step of the road.

Anyway, my laptops' things seem perfectly well connected. It just seems to work on the laptop side. However on the desktop side it keeps saying 'Unindentified Network', tried EVERYTHING for hours.

Now if I disable internet here, or the gateway, it reloads on the desktop too, trying to search a new network. I played with every network setting on both machines. Perhaps I should start it all over. I really need help.

I'm not that good with computers, so I'd need a step-by-step guide as to what to do, from scratch, exactly.

Guys, thanks it advance <3

Hi All, Your urgent attention to this issue is highly appreciated. I had purchased Lenovo Z580 laptop (QB05312638) on 25/08/2012. On the date of my purchase there was an advertisement from Lenovo stating " 3 years Warranty" ( 1 year accidental damage + Onsite warranty & 2 years Carriage Warranty). However my laptop was down and required to be serviced within a year due to keyboard case problem. This was serviced at that time and now I am facing same issue of keyboard case problem which led to my display flickering issue as advised by Lenovo authorized service centre. Though my Laptop is still under 3 year warranty, the service centre states that I have only " 1 year of Warranty " as per the records and charges me INR 16,000.00 to service the display issue. Also the service centre states if my record shows this as " 3 year period of Warranty " they would do the needful. Out of my interest I had spent the amount from my pocket for the keyboard case of INR 7000.00. Please advise if the warranty period could be changed to 3 years so that the display could be changed. I am also trying to get in touch with the service team ( [email protected] & [email protected] ), however there is no response inspite of multiple chasers. NOTE : My Lenovo laptop (Z580) is still with the Lenovo service centre for more than 45 days, awaiting an update from lenovo. My 3 year warrant expires on 25/08/2015. Thanks & Warm Regards... Read more

Just a headsup - This is NOT the official support forum. You may get advice from a mod but it is not certain.
 
Your best option is to call Lenovo and try to talk to their Manager.
 
Also, once your warranty expires, it cannot be renewed. You can check the warrranty status online here -

EDIT: did a clean install, stupid windows 8

We are using Group Policy to issue an XML file with a list of sites for IE 11 to load in Enterprise mode.  We added our payroll company site because they were not compatible with IE 11, now they are ONLY compatible with IE 11.  I removed their
URL from the XML list over a week ago, but all company computers are still loading it in Enterprise mode.  I can have everyone turn it off manually, but the problem is they use so many subdomains that everyone would have to do it numerous times.  Why
is that happening?  I need to force this site and its subdomains to NOT load in Enterprise Mode.  It seems that when the URL was removed from the XML list it no longer forced it, but it also did not remove that setting.
 

Answer:Removing a site from Enterprise Model XML list for IE 11 does not disable enterprise mode for that site

Hi,
No event error doesn't indicate the policy is applied fine. If the new configuration didn't work, the most probably reason was the group policy was not applied.
You could rest your Internet Explorer 11 and then restart the compute to check the result.
If it still doesn't work, run "gpresult /h gpreport.html" command to saves the report in HTML format with the file name "gpreport.html" at C:\Windows\System32\ directory.
Open this file to check if this group policy was applied successfully.Please remember to mark the replies as answers if they help, and unmark the answers if they provide no help. If you have feedback for TechNet Support, contact [email protected]

Question: Z580 Windows 8

Good Day, I see this topic has been discussed to death. But would appreciate fresh input on the topic.I made a big mistake buying my lenovo z580 with windows 8. Thinking I can load it with windos 7 and later restore windows 8 i found out to late that the partions should NOT be formated and there is no recovery disks given (i formated it in the first 2 min after i bought it). I have hower backed up all the files and software on the partions. e.g LrsEsp.okrWinre.okr is there a way to rebuild the windows okr images into a iso DVD for reload?I also tried to take a normal ISO DVD of windows 8 and reload it, but it seems the embeded key will not work with any version of windows 8 64x other then the embbed version which has no ISO. please help / advice. really want to get win8 back on

If you also have the Liteon WB225 BGN+BT HMC WLAN Card WCBN608AH-L6 (p5), can you try to install this driver:

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

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

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

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!!!
