IdeaPad Z580 vs. IdeaPad Y570?

Question: IdeaPad Z580 vs. IdeaPad Y570?

Hi, I'm looking for a laptop for college that can also run some games. I'm not hoping to run Crysis on high or anything...I just want to be able to have Portal, TF2, etc. look moderately good and play without lag. I've found 2 laptops that look promising, but need help deciding. First is the Z580 21512KU model (about $770 on Amazon):-Intel Core_i5_3210M Processor 2.5GHz (3MB Cache)-6 GB DIMM RAM-750GB 5400rpm Hard Drive-NVIDIA GT630M 1GB DDR3 Then we have the Y570 ($750 on Lenovo's online shop):-i7-2670QM Processor( 2.2GHz 1333MHz 6MB)-8.0GB PC3-10600 DDR3 SDRAM 1333 MHz-1TB 5400 rpm Hard Drive-NVIDIA GeForce GT 555M 1GB Which one will be able to run my games better? The Y570 seems like a better deal (larger hard drive, more RAM, i7 over i5), but I've heard that the .3 GHz difference in processor speed makes the i5 better. Is this true? Also, which graphics card will be better? All in all, which is a better bang for my buck? Thanks!

Preferred Solution: IdeaPad Z580 vs. IdeaPad Y570?

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: IdeaPad Z580 vs. IdeaPad Y570?

Hi, I was exactly in the same dilemma; they are both priced very similarly. I opted for z580 because of several reasons. Y570 gets hotter overal. The i7 processor makes absolutely no difference in games; it's only useful for video editing. The 555M graphics card in the Y570 is the nerfed version of the card, which makes it performance wise similar to the GT 630M:http://www.notebookcheck.net/NVIDIA-GeForce-GT-555M.41933.0.html(96 cores 753MHz (GF108), 128Bit GDDR5, e.g. Lenovo Y570p / Y560p)The hood on the Z580 looks way better (personal preference).The z580 has Ivy Bridge.Also, the screen on the z580 is a little better (AUO vs SEC on Y570). Bottom line: I'm very happy with my choice. Excellent build quality and decent performance. The screen is one of the best 1366x768 screens I've seen.I've played the following games so far:Crysis 2 on gamer settings, average 30 fpsshift 2 on high settings, 30-50 fpsmax payne 3 on medium, average 30+ fpsthe witcher 2, low settings, average 30 fps.modern warfare 3, high 40 fps Hope this helps

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.
 
Regards

Question: Ideapad Y570

Purchased from Lenovo online and used this machine for 3 - 4 weeks now. Today the machine will not boot up, Lenovo support states, "OS Corruption" and is sending me a recovery disk for $89. Should be here in 5 business days 0 unacceptable. The boot up problem states "Page_Fault_In_Non_Paged_Area". Since it is a "Software" problem versus a "Hardware" problem I have to pay! In reality I believe all Y570 users will pay for how Lenovo has engineered the 64GB SSD into the Y570. Just a warning  but I would stay away from this machine - very unstable and not refunds!!!

Hello,I recently purchased an IdeaPad y570 with an i7-2630QM processor. One of the selling points of this laptop was that the processor supports the AES-NI instruction set, which programs like TrueCrypt can take advantage of. However, upon receiving the laptop it seems that AES-NI is disabled. This page from Intel shows that this feature is indeed available: http://ark.intel.com/Product.aspx?id=52219 From what I can gather 'round the 'net, while the i7-2630QM processor does support the feature, the laptop manufacturer must support it in the BIOS, in this case Lenovo. Does anyone know if there are any plans in the future to do so? Again, this feature was one of the selling points of the laptop to me, and if the feature is built into the CPU then it boggles my mind why it would be disabled by Lenovo.

Answer:IdeaPad y570 and AES-NI

Lenovo is not the only manufacturer to disable this feature in the BIOS, ASUS appear to have done it also. Whether they have done it at the request of Intel is not clear yet. Currently the only way to fix it is by doing a BIOS mod to stop it from being disabled at boot, but unfortunately this is tricky. Not sure what else we can do except try to raise awareness about being short-changed. note: AES-NI is controlled by bit 1 in the MSR 0x13c (set: AES-NI off, cleared: AES-NI on), bit 0 there seems to be the lock bit which disables further writes to this MSR (so it's not possible to enable AES-NI from your OS without firmware patch)

Question: IdeaPad y570

Hi, I just purchased an IdeaPad Y570, and I wish to reinstall from the ground up. I cannot for the life of me get the Pre-boot environment to see the SSD. Does anyone have a link to the drivers that will allow this? I saw BarryRacer's cleaninstall guide, where he says to conver to basic disk/dynamic disk and diskmgmt doesn't even allow me to do this, so I am not able to take his recommendation. As soon as I open DiskMgmt I get a message that I must Initialize a disk before Logical Disk Manager can access it. This failes if I use MBR or GPT with a message of "The drive cannot find the sector requested". Disk 0 is listed as the 750 GB drive, and Disk 1 says it has a Capacity of "Unknown" and is listed as Not initialized. Right clicking that gives me one non-grayed out option of "Offline" but if I choose that it spits back that "Device is not Ready".  I have the Toshiba 64GB THNSNB064GMCJ drive installed. Any help here? Did I get a bum SSD drive? Is a driver missing?

Hi ksteven813,Welcome to Lenovo Community!Well first thing first thanks for your purchase and congratres you're getting a new notebook soon !In fact, all the drivers are already loaded in the computer and you do not need to update your drivers unless something is not working properly then you may want to check out this support site: consumersupport.lenovo.com for any latest drivers.What you should do first is to make recovery discs! This is important in case your system is corrupted, cannot boot up,etc, you may use this recovery disc to restore to factory state system. You can refer to this knowledge base article on how to create recovery disc.
Hope this helps! Enjoy playing with your Y570!Regards,Cleo

Answer:screw fan ideapad y570

The Hardware Maintenance Manual lists M2. × 6.5 mm, flat-head, nylok-coated screws, but those are for the fan & heatsink assembly.  I assume you are looking for the screws that hold just the fan itself.  For those screws there is nothing documented in the manual.  Unless someone stops in on this discussion with better information, I would suggest you visit a local computer repair shop.  They should be able to match the screw for you.

I have had this y570 for almost 3 years now and it has now started to slow down to the point where it is hard for me to play games or have multiple tabs open.  I have the 8g memory, 500g hard drive, i7 processor, and Nvidia 555m version of the ideapad.  I have had my laptop on a fan since I have had it. Now it overheats and when it gets to about 60% memory usage my frames will drop from 60 to about 20 or less. I am looking too fix my computer and need help with ideas on how to do it.  At the moment I am considering getting new ram, new thermal paste, or new hard drive.  Ram: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820104257&SortField=0&SummaryType=0&PageSize=1...I know that the ram is compatable but I do not know if it will run at 1600mhz.

So, I just got my IdeaPad Y570 (Core i7 2670QM, nVidia GT555M, 8GB DDR3 SDRAM) and I must say, it's one heck of a beast!  It runs all the programs I throw at it at full speed!  However, I do have some concerns, which are likely to be trivial; fan speed fluctuations and temperature levels. As of now, I'm using the "Super silent mode" to prevent the fans from changing from high to medium to low and back to high, etc as I know that it's normal for CPU/GPU fans to do that, in order to keep the components from getting fried.  With all the fan speeds fluctuating, will that shorten the lifespan of the fan(s) as well as other components or will it last as long as any other laptop? Is it a mode I can have on all the time whether I'm gaming or not? I tried using the "efficient thermal dissipation" for more CPU intensive programs, but that too has the fan compensate for higher temps.  Why am I so wary of the fluctuations, why do I let this prevent me from enjoying gaming on this machine?  My BIOS version is 47CN31WW 2.09, as of 10/28/2011.  Any feedback is greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time. 

Answer:IdeaPad Y570 concerns

If it's a choice between a fan wearing out or the motherboard frying, I'd take the fan wearing out.    I keep my Y570 on efficient thermal dissapation.  I may end up picking up a cooling pad along the way too just to help things out, because it seems like my temp averages are getting higher as time goes on.

Hello everyone, So I just purchased my ideapad about two weeks ago. After installing a plethora of Window7 updates, I noticed that some of these drivers caused some issues.

Answer:IdeaPad Z580 GPU Help

There are no slots for graphics card in Z580. Those Z580s with the GT 640M have GPU chip soldered to the motherboard. Those Z580s without the dedicated graphics chip does not have a slot where you can solder the GPU. Besides, there is no GT 640M that is packaged as an MXM card, and only high end gaming laptops (GTX 670M or higher) have MXM slots in order to upgrade their graphics card.

Hi all,Today I tried to install some old logitech software for an external webcam. Alas, it is not compatible with windows 8. However, I could still use the webcam on skype, I just couldn't install the application that would let me take pictures with cool effects. I was going through the files on the disc and, not knowing such about computers, thought that it might be the software overall that was incompatible...but maybe there's just one file that I could download! Yeah. I'm stupid. I found something that said "64 bit" (I think that's all it said) and thought "Hey! this is a 64 bit! maybe this is what I need!" so I installed it. it looked like things were going fine.

hi sydthefairebrat,
 
Welcome to the Forums.
 
After you login, can you try to:
1. Press the Ctrl+Shift+Esc keys to open task manager. If the task manager opens up, click File > New Task (Run ..) > type explorer then press enter. If you get your desktop screen with all the icons, you can uninstall the camera software to undo the changes.
 
2. Interrupt the loading of Windows 8 to enterpush-button reset mode (this is like a recovery environment to restore the pc fromr previous working state). To do this, hold the power button while Windows 8 is loading up (you need to do this twice).  From here, you can:
2a. boot into Safe Mode and uninstall the software that caused the problem
2b. do a System Restore to undo the changes
2c  refresh your Windows 8 PC
 
3. Alternatively, If you have created a recovery drive using this method, you can boot from it and follow the steps 2a-2c.

So I used to have a Thinkpad, I forget which model exactly, and the battery died and would no longer hold a charge after some time. When it did, the battery symbol in the corner would say that it no longer held a charge. Today, my Ideapad won't turn on unless it's plugged in, but it doesn't give me the same message about the battery not holding a charge.. The battery was fully charged last time I unplugged it, and still says that it is fully charged. Since it doesn't say that the battery is no longer functioning, is there any chance it's just a connection issue from the battery to the rest of the computer, or is it still likely that I'll need to buy a replacement battery if I want to use it without the plug? Thanks in advance for the help!

Answer:Ideapad Y570 will not turn on without being plugged in

Using the Lenovo Energy management you can do a battery health check. I think the battery is faulty, which is more probable than a faulty connection between the battery and the rest of the laptop. Also, you can call Lenovo who can provide you with remote support and test your system for you.

Dear all, my laptop works fine but every now and then it does 4 very loud beeps, very fast, I would say within 1 second or less. This happened a few months ago, it never happened until last weeks, in the last 8 days it did it probably 6 times. Any suggestions? it is very annoying. Alberto

Answer:Ideapad Y570 4 fast beeps every now and then

hi Alberto,
 
Welcome to the Lenovo Forums.
 
Just to verify, does the 4 loud beep sound occur before you boot into Windows? Or does it happen only when you're inside Windows?
 
If it happens outside of Windows, it's probably a loose or faulty hardware. What I would do first is to reseat the PC components like memory, HDD, WLAN card, etc. and run a diagnostic on the hardware.
 
If the beeping sound happens inside of Windows and comes out of the speakers, try to:
1. Perform a clean boot to isolate if there are programs that are configured to play a beeping sound
2. Open Event Viewer (click start, type Event Viewer) and look under Custom Views > Administrative Events for possible errors that's causing the computer to beep.Spoiler (Highlight to read)
 
Let me know your findings

(Code 12)", and sometimes it is there and everything seems to be fine but it's just not working. and finally, there were some cases when it works fine for a random time (sometimes a few seconds, sometimes up to an hour), but suddenly everything freezes for a few minutes, then a baloon pops up saying that :Intel HD driver failed and restarted". after that I lose my ethernet connection again.I tried upgrading my BIOS but seems like the current version (2.08) is newer than the version available in the drivers download page (2.03). I also thaught there may be a problem with Intel chipset driver, so I tried installing the one in the lenovo website but it didn't help. Then I tried to upgrade the Ethernet controllers, but that was of no use neither.What should I do?

Hi, I have Ideapad Y570 i7, 6GB ddr3, 750GB. Recently I am getting problem of starting win7(Home Premium), sometimes I got blue screen of death. I have licensed antivirus software, so there is no issue for any malware, virus issue. I reintalled win7, But still such problem exist. This problem is not continous but happening frequently past few days. I am able to start win7 sometime.   I installed latest lenovo Solution Center software & run hardware scan. All results are showing green with no problem.But there is only one problem scan showed in harddisk scan "Smart Short self-test". This "Smart Short self-test" failed. Is this cause of my problem? If yes please let me know how to resolve this issue of harddisk. 

Answer:Ideapad Y570 harddisk issue.

Just to make sure what causes the BSOD, check if the BSOD happens right after the OS reinstallation or after you install softwares or transfer files.  If the BSOD happens after an OS reinstallation without making any changes, then you have a hardware issue and you need to call Lenovo support for further assistance and most probably you have to get that laptop sent over to depot for repair. If you're not sure what causes the BSOD, you can get this http://www.resplendence.com/downloads and get whocrashed, install it and run it.  You will be able to see what is the BSOD error code and what causes it to happen.  Will also show if the BSOD error is caused by hardware or software.

Hey, So in the past couple of days I've noticed that my Y570 isn't charging properly. With normal use such as internet browsing, facebook, e-mail, etc. there is no problem. However I often use my computer to game stuff like Don't Starve, League, CSGO, etc. So I'm thinking the problems is something to due with heat. Any help would be appreciated!  Cheers, Johannes.

I have an Ideapad Y570.  I recently re-installed Windows 7 64bit and I am struggling to get the wifi to work.  On the driver site there are 3 wifi drivers.  How do I know which one to install? I have tried all 3.  The one that seems to load well is Intel link 1000 bgn driver.  When I switch it on and try to connect, it tells me the wifi device is off.  Is the switch on th front right side for the bluetooth and the wifi.  It is on and the light in the front is on.  If I push Fn + F5 nothing happens.  I have checked the settings in the bios and they are all correct.  I have loaded the Intel power management which is supposed to enable the Fn keys.  I can switch the trackpad off using the Fn + F6 key.  Please help.

Answer:Ideapad Y570 i7- which wifi driver

8gb (2x4gb) ddr3sodimm
part number: khx1600c9s3p1k2/8g

there's something else ? maybe for Corsair, or other good brand ...
Thanks...

Answer:Can Help with Recommended RAM for Lenovo IdeaPad Y570?

Corsair is good and has postive overall satisfaction rating.

I recommend to go 8 GB since on some occassions (e.g. 20 - 30 tabs of web browsing + virtual machine running), I can actually exceed 4 GB of RAM usage. With 8 GB of RAM, you can also run 2 or more virtual machines without slowing down your Y570. IMO 8 is the sweet spot (enough for most tasks), but if you are doing something radical like using a RamDisk or Adobe After Effects with many layers, you can opt for 16 GB RAM which is the max for Y570.

For 8 GB, you can buy this "Corsair 8GB (2x 4GB) 1333mhz PC3-10666 204-pin DDR3 SODIMM Laptop Memory Kit CMSO8GX3M2A1333C9" which is completely compatible with Y570 for a reasonable price online.

Alright so my Lenovo IdeaPad Y570 recently underwent some physical damage while on and the HDD took serious damage and I was forced to replace it. I was under the impression that the OneKey recovery system was an onboard full restore and did not know that it was hard drive based. I seem to have misplaced the recovery disk that came with my laptop so I'm running low on options.

Hello, I recently bought a new Y570 and I'm unable to get it to stay on when I'm away.  I like to connect to it remotely so I leave it running, but it keeps turning off leaving me unable to connect. Specs:Y570 i7-2630QM 6G ram 750HD 15.6"Win 7 Home PremiumI have made sure to set the power options to "never turn off the display" and "never put the computer to sleep".  But when I get home I always have to power it back on.  Sometimes it boots from off and sometimes is resumes from sleep, but I need it to not do either.  According to my remote control service which tells me how long it has been disconnected, it seems to last 5-6 hours of inactivity before shutting down.  I'm fairly certain it is not over heating because it runs fine for hours doing non-stop video intensive activity with no problems.  Is there some place else like the BIOS where it has settings to turn off after a certain period of inactivity separately from the OS?  I'm currently not at my home computer and as is often the case I am again unable to connect remotely.  Hence the reason for this post.  I have not checked the BIOS for a wake from LAN option yet but I will since my remote control service has the ability to send a wake up signal.  But that does me no good when it turns off completely. Thanks for your time,Andrew

Hello,As per my other thread regarding the AES-NI feature, I recently purchased an IdeaPad y570. Well, yesterday I experienced two blue-screen errors from Windows, one was PAGE_FAULT_IN_NON_PAGED_AREA, and the other was MEMORY_MANGEMENT. Doing some internet research, it seemed like these two would be caused by a faulty RAM module. I fired up MemTest86+, and lo and behold that is indeed the case. The first module is indeed coming up with errors. I pulled out that defective module, ran MemTest86+ again, and the errors cease to occur. I can post a screen shot of MemTest86+ that I took with my camera if that helps, but I wouldn't be able to do so until later.My ultimate question though is this: is it possible to RMA just the defective RAM with Lenovo, or would I have to RMA the whole laptop for them to replace the defective RAM? I figured I'd ask here before I give them a call so I know what to expect.Thanks again.

Hi all. I have a Ideapad Y570 and I was wondering if there's anyway to add a second hard drive to the computer. I know it does not have an extra bay, but I'd seen some hard drive expansion sets that allow you to take out the CD drive and replace it with a bracket that allows you to use a second hard drive. Is this available for my Y570 at all? Thanks.

Hi, guys.Im having the following problem:My Nvidia card doesnt want to work properly all the time. I move the switch, the indicator led goes ON, the game is added @ nvidia control panel to run @ Nvidia card, BUT I start the game and get 19-20 fps. I restart 10 times, unplug battery & power, reinstalled drivers.Sometimes the GPU works without ANY problem, I just move the switch and play, and sometimes I have to restart shutdown 10 times in order to make it working again. When GPU doesnt work properly, It is not shown in AIDA64, and when it works properly - it is shown. Currently with last nvidia drivers from lenovo support page @ my model, but also tested with various drivers from nVidia.com, the problem presists. I just dont know if it would "decide" to work today or not. This issue is REALLY annoying, since the GPU act like it's working properly while it isnt and the only way to check it, is to run a game and check fps. The other "detection method" is AIDA64, "GPU" Tab. If anyone had similar problems and resolved them, please post.

Hello,I'm having an issue with my new Ideapad Y570.  When I try to Shut Down or put my laptop in sleep mode, it will immediately turn itself back on within a few seconds.  For example, on shut down, it will go through the shut down process.  As soon as all of the lights are off (indicator that shut down was complete) they all come back on again and the system boots itself up.  Pretty much as if I did a restart.I did check the BIOS for a wake on LAN connection or any other wake settings, but didn't see them.  Just to be sure though, i disabled the Wi Fi connector and unplugged the wired cable and tried.  Received the same results.checked windows tasks and found one titled HotStart.  Disabled it and had the same results. I checked my advanced power settings and the wake options are all disabled. Any ideas? Add'l background:  I did reformat the laptop as soon as I received it.  I installed Win7 ultimate to the solid state drive, using the SATA as a secondary.  I also installed all Lenovo Drivers specific to my system after the reformat. Thanks for the help!-Josh

Hi,I got a new IdeaPad Y570. It skips songs. No matter, if i play them in ITunes, Windows Player, ITunes file format, Windows file format, local hard drive, external hard drive, files ripped from CD, or buy files from ITunes. The files play fine on my other computer. The players can seek to any position in the file fine. So, it's not corrupted files. I have the latest version of ITunes, QuickTime, sound chip drivers. The weirdest thing is that the frequency of skipping goes up dramatically, when I plug in my stereo system instead of head phones. Any help? The music experience is really bad, when songs skip after a few seconds.

Answer:IdeaPad Y570 Skips Songs

Is it audio skipping, or are songs skipped over? If it's the latter case, I had a similar problem with my new Y470. What worked for me was uninstalling the audio driver. I installed the latest driver from Realtek's website: http://www.realtek.com/downloads/downloadsCheck.aspx?Langid=1&PNid=24&PFid=24&Level=4&Conn=3&DownTyp...   That fixed my problems, make sure to install the latest driver software from Realtek and not the one posted on Lenovo's site. Hope that helps. So the above didn't actually fix anything. I'm still having this problem. I also found out that the skipping also occurs while playing CDs from my Y470. Sorry, that I couldn't actually help.

I have done rigorous testing and many formats until I found the updated drivers that ARE 100% compatible with the Y570. Some of them were taken from the Y580 like the Realtek Audio Drivers, the webcam drivers, etc.
 
the updated Lenovo Power Management and Lenovo EE Boot Optimizer were taken from the Z575 driver set.
 
Since Lenovo doesn't care to update other notebooks' driver page, I bring you the updated set here to download.
 
 
The Lenovo IdeaPad Y570 Clean Install Guide has also been updated with these drivers!
 
Note: Please do not bother installing newer Intel Chipset Drivers or newer Rapid Storage Technology or Intel Management Engine Components because in my testing, if you install the later ones they give you lower components. The drivers below are the ones that were meant to work 100% with the Intel 6 Chipset the later ones are for Intel 7 and even though they may install fine, they give lower performance.

Hello Lenovo Community, So here's the deal: when my computer is on sleep mode and I "wake it up", the following happens sometimes: my screen lights up, then goes back to "screen is off" mode despite me clicking on stuff like Skype or Google Chrome. It happens about 3-4 times before stabilizing. PS: It happens no matter what Energy Star mode I choose (if the problem comes from Energy Management: Energy Star). Thanks for helping !!

Answer:[IdeaPad Y570] Screen sometimes goes on sleep during use

It seems like a problem with the energy management software, but before you remove and reinstall that, can you press Fn+F2 if the screen toggles on an off? Based on your description, this Fn+F2 screen on and off toggle activates intermittently when you wake up the laptop. It could also be due to Intel graphics drivers.

It's not going to burn out. You'll probably experience thermal shutdown often then one day it won't turn on forever. Go to local computer repair shop and have them repaste the CPU and GPU and clean the fans and heatsink as well.

On 10/29/2011, I purchased an IdeaPad y570 (model 0862) with hdd=750gb  & ssd=64gb. Honestly, I did not do much research on the specfic box, I was looking for a box with a sata rotational drive and a SSD. My plan was to have all of the Windows 7 OS functions on the 64gb SSD. (boot, system, page file, hibernation, etc) When I got the box, I was seriously perplexed with the partitions. After hours of reading about RapidDrive, I have a couple of questions:1) Is there a utility that can be run to see what files are currently being served from the SSD? I want to confirm the page file, hibernation file and major os files are on the SSD. 2) Is there a way to "pin" files onto the SSD so they are always there? Again, the page file, hibernation file, etc 3) Has anyone benchmarked running this box in RapidDrive mode versus having the OS and related on the SSD via a standard ssd=C: drive and hdd=d: drive mode? The concept of an intelligent "cache" of files on the SSD is interesting but I want to know it is in fact working. Any thoughts would be great! Sincerely,  Bill

Also whenever i switch from integrated graphics card (Intel 3000) to my Nvidia 555M, the GPU heat SKYROCKETS from 45 C to 80C, Is that a danger zone? Or is my laptop able to handle it?3. What cooling devices can i use for this laptop?(I already re-applied new thermal paste) Thanks (:

My laptop is a Lenovo Ideapad Y570 with an Intel i5 2.3 Ghz, Nvidia Geforce GT 555M 1GB and 4GB of RAM.Lately I've been experiencing sudden FPS drops in games. This drop appears in all the games I play. I get 5 minutes with normal FPS and then a sudden drop. (note: before 6 months I was running all the same games with no drops) For example I am running Skyrim on Ultra with about 30 FPS and after about 5-7 minutes my FPS drops to 10-15 for a minute. It's really annoying and I can't seem to find any fixes.A temporary solution I found was decreasing the maximum processor state from the Control Panel. Unfortunaly the more you do that, the more you have to decrease the state. Now I can either set it to 40% and have a solid FPS, which is not even close to the FPS I should get, or I can set it to 60% and get normal FPS for a short duration of time. (For example in Tomb Raider if I set it to 40% I get about 20 FPS. If I set it to 60% I get 35-40 FPS for about 5 minutes and then I go back to those crappy 20 FPS.) I wrote in the Nvidia forum but nobody knew how to solve it (I'm not the only one with such problem). I decided to try my luck here.Any solutions would be greatly appreciated.

Hi, The fan on my IdeaPad Y570 has suddenly stopped switching on. It does not spin regardless of temperature, and as a result, temperatures reach 90C+. The dedusting mode works fine, the fan spins up as expected for the cycle, and sounds normal. So the fan is not physically broken or clogged. I have also installed 3rd party software CPUID HWMonitor to check if the temperature sensors are functioning, and they all show temperatures at expected levels, and more than high enough to warrant the fan coming on. I don't think I have installed any new software that might interfere with it. I have tried re-installing the Lenovo Energy Management software, but that didn't help. I have also tried starting the laptop in safe mode, to no effect. Thanks in advance for any help you can provide. HWMonitor Screenshot:

So I got this problem 2-3 weeks ago. The problem was that when I was playing Fifa 12 on my laptop , the laptop suddenly stopped working. When I started it again the fans started working , but there was nothing on the monitor (black screen) and it wasn't from the monitor cause I couldn't hear the Windows starting song. So the problem kinda fixed itself (I don't exactly know how it happened , but the laptop was fine , everything working again).Like 2-3 days ago the same problem occurred when I played League of Legends. But I received some errors before that happened. The first one dropped me out of the game , but I wanted to rejoin fast and didn't read it. After I started the game again i got BSOD(Blue Screen Of Death - I don't really know how to call this problem , but I hope this describes it good).I waited 3-5 min than I restarted the laptop and when I started the game again BSOD appeared again.I was really worried about that , so I waited a little bit longer this time (around 10min).And now the same problem appears (the fan - working , black screen , no windows song).And now I can't start the laptop at all , because of this.Please help !

Bought a new Y570 in August. The machine completely failed in mid September. Wouldn't boot, nothing on the screen.Called Lenovo tech support. Send it in they said, repair turnaround is 7 business days. So ship it in I did.Checked the depotstatus page a few days later to make sure it had arrived. Lovely, it fails with a .NET error of some kind.Check a few more times over the next few days. Same result. Gave up & called them. Pointed out that the status pagewasn't working. Status was that the laptop was waiting for someone to look at it.Next day, checked status page again. Works now, says that machine was received on 15 Sept, being repaired as of23 Sept. and then waiting for parts on 23 Sept.By nature, I'm a patient person, so I give them a few days to fix it, checking depotstatus regularly.Come the 28th of Sept., still no update so I call. Call centre person can tell me nothing beyond "waiting for parts".Cannot give me a date when I can expect it back. Tells me to call back on Monday.This I have just done.

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?

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.

Dear Concern,
 
I bought my laptop Ideapad z580 (serial: QBxxxxxxx) a year ago for £752. and it had issue of randomly restarting. I installed new windows, tried many solutions but failed. Sent it for repair. Now this is really disappointing from customer point of view that his/her new laptop got repaired within few months. I said ok that is fine.
 
Within one month of repair, my laptop was not showing anything at all. There was some issue with motherboard (again) and display card. now this is frustrating part. I asked for refund that this is second time in a year it broke and asked for refund. The guy on the phone was really clever and said "sir please send your laptop and if it is a physical/hardware error we will get back to you about refund". No one came back and they sent repaired laptop back.
 
Now within first 2 weeks i found that i cannot use LAN card which i was able to in the past. I use it for video conferencing and video gaming as well. This constant back and forth caused delay in my web project and i lost £1k. whom should i blame? I called the support and asked for refund and the guy said "sir your warranty has just expired a month ago" is it my fault? this laptop keeps breaking. Again he is clever and said "sir i have told me supervisor about your case and he will call you to ask about replacement unit or possible refund".

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

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

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

Got a new Ideapad Z580 today and it doesn't charge at all. It turns on OK with the power supply attached and the batter claims to be at 87% (plugged in, not charging) but that never changes. Even after like 8 hours solid charging (some with the laptop off, some with it on) it instantly turns off as soon as you unplug the charger.  The orange battery light never stopped flashing orange. I don't believe this is anything to do with the energy management software as the same thing happens if it's just showing the BIOS screen or it's running any boot disk / CD based OS you care to mention. I went into the energy management software to see what that said and the battery health section said battery destroyed!

Answer:New Ideapad Z580 does not charge at all

hi NozzaC,
 
Welcome to the Lenovo Forums.
 
Can you try to:
1. Remove the AC adapter and battery and shutdown the machine
2. Hold the power button for 20secs
3. Reconnect the AC adapter and turn the machine ON
4. When you get into Windows, slide the battery back IN
5. Open Energy Management > Battery and see if you can set the settings to Maximum Battery Life.Spoiler (Highlight to read)
If you get the same error, I recommend you contact lenovo on how to go about replacing the battery.

A couple of weeks ago I was using my laptop and I noticed I couldn't click physically with the pad, I had to tap in order to click. I then noticed that the mouse pad had caved to the inside of the laptop, which means I can't click anymore; I can click but I have to apply a lot of pressure to the mousepad. Is there an easy fix for this? Please help me, thank you.

Answer:ideapad Z580 mouse pad

Hi JEBeltran,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community!
 
I?m sorry to hear that the Touchpad Sensitivity towards tapping is not working as expected. I suggest you to change the sensitivity setting for the touchpad and check if the issue persists, below are the steps to access the Touchpad settings:
 

Please click Start , enter mouse in the search field, and then select the Mouse control panel program from the search results.
Then in the Device Settings tab of the Mouse Properties panel, select the Synaptic TouchPad device and click theSettings button.
Now you can adjust the TouchPad settings for scrolling, buttons, touch sensitivity, edge sensitivity, and gesture actions to suit your personal preferences. Please let me know the findings.

Hope to hear back soon
 
Best Regards

Shiva Kumar

Hello,I currently have a Lenovo Ideapad Z580, which has the following specs:Intel i3-2370MNvidia GT Geforce 630M4GB DDR3 RAM500GB ATA Hard Disk.I'm wondering what upgrades are possible...., as far as I know the GPU can't be upgraded since it's soldered to the motherboard. CPU-Z shows that my CPU socket is an 988B rPGA (Pin Grid Array?), which is probably removable? Also here (http://shop.lenovo.com/ISS_Static/WW/EMEA/merchandising/pdf/en/Z580_DS_EN.pdf), it says: Up to 2nd or 3rd gen Intel® Core? i7 processor Which means I can upgrade to say one of the processors listed there (e.g. Intel i7-3612QM?). As for RAM, crucial says an additional 4GB upgrade is available. Am I missing anything?

Answer:IdeaPad Z580 Notebook (Q).

If long battery life and wireless connectivity are most important for you, you should get the thinkpad since their batteries have more WHr than an ideapad for the same 6-cell, though the batteries are heavier. Thinkpads usually have better wifi out of the factory, but you can install a much better wifi if you opt for the ideapad which comes with an entry level wifi adapter. One more thing, the battery with the Z-580 only comes with 6-cell while the thinkpad has the option for 9-cell battery.

Answer:ideapad z580 usb issue

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

Hello forums I was hoping I could get some help.
 
I am overall very happy with the computer except for one thing.
 
I use Truecrypt system encryption on my computer and not having the ability to utilize the AES-NI instruction set is becoming a bit of a nuisance. I know my CPU (Intel Core i5-3210M) supports AES-NI but it seems as if the microcode to enable support in the BIOS is disabled. 
support for AES-NI is verified HERE on Intel's website.
 
Currently I am running Windows 7 Pro x64 with the BIOS set to legacy mode.
Would running the BIOS in legacy mode disable this feature?
 
I am a computer technician and am in school for network engineering, so big words are ok. 
 
Any help would be appreciated.

There has to be someone who has either found a fix for this or wants is as a feature.Speaking of which, if this is a missing feature what would be the proper channels to go through to inform Lenovo that it should be implemented in the next BIOS update.

Hello everybody. I've just bought ideapad Z580 and I'm running it with Win 7 x64-bit.Everything is OK until I noticed something is wrong with the picture.It's a bit grainy/My former notebook was 17'' and with higher resolution so I thought the problem was in me with a smaller screen/resolution.But then again the picture should be crystal clear.It's more visible on white screen and on small thumbnails.It's like very very tiny vertical lines between the pixels.Don't get me wrong - its barely visible but I know it and it bugs me.I probably could live with that but I don't feel very comfortable.The drivers are from the provided CD and the rosolution is 1366x768.I've read about similar problems with older Lenovo models but didn't figure out what to do.So is it just me or the problem is with the LED panel? 

Answer:Ideapad z580 screen

Hello Labriss,
 
Welcome, your query is related to appearance of screen resolution and vertical lines, for that you need to re-install the graphics driver from the below mentioned web link.

Hi guys, Bit of a peculiar problem related to VPN access. Does anyone know of any software installed on fresh out of the box Z580 that might interfere with VPN connections? I'm connecting into a watchguard firewall using their VPN software and can get a link but it won't receive data (transmitting seems ok). I've tried disabling the Windows firewall but to no avail. I've never had issues installing on other Windows 7 machines so I'm deducing that there must be something Lenovo specific that regulates VPN traffic. Connection is via IPSec. Ta

   Hello,     I bought a Ideapad Z580 here in the US, and would be gifting it to my brother who stays in the UK. Should I register the laptop with his details (UK address, etc)  (or he can register the laptop when he gets it) so that he can get the laptop serviced under the International Warranty Service if he has to? Or can he avail the IWS even if it registered under my name?   Thanks,  nagesh

My basically brand-new Ideapad Z580 has decided to not charge when I plug it in. I registers that the AC Adapter is connected but will not charge. The only way i can get it to charge is by restarting the computer while it is already plugged in. If the AC Adapter gets disconnected at any time, charging does not resume when plugged back in.

Answer:Ideapad Z580 won't charge

This is because of a setting in lenovo energy management, which limits the battery charge to 60% and stops charging afte the level reaches 60%.To change this setting, open the lenovo energy management appliation by using the touch buttons or open it from the system tray icon, then in battery seting change from Battery protection mode or optimize for battery lifetime to optimize for battery runtime.A more easier way to change this is by shutting down the laptop, removing battery and unplugging the charger and then press the power button for 40 seconds(without any power source). Then Reboot the laptop and see if it works.Hope this Helps

Hi All, I was wondering if anyone has had any experience with the Y570 operating with Sun Solaris 10 OS.I see there is no driver support for Solaris 10 under the Y570, so i am reluctant to purchase. Any experiences to share, or confirmation that the Y570 hardware is compatible with Solaris 10? Thanks. Col.

Answer:IdeaPad Y570 - Hardware support under SUN Solaris 10

Hello Cmurphy,
 
You may try the Oracle tool which helps in checking the system if it can support Oracle Sun Solaris 10
The tool can be access from the mentioned below web link.
http://www.oracle.com/webfolder/technetwork/hcl/hcts/device_detect.html
 
However, there are no drivers available for Sun Solaris Operating System on website. Usually the drivers are installed by the Sun Solaris itself.
 
Best Regards,
Tanuj

I recently purchased a Y570 from Lenovo and have had it for about a month with it working great. I use my laptop for World of Warcraft and I've been very happy with its preformance so far. 2 days ago while searching a news website my computer crashed for no reason with a bsod titled "Bad pool header" upon restart I did the repair option, it went threw its thing for a bit told me to restart so I did then got hit with a bsod "memory manager" upon restart this time I started in safe mode and ran chkdsk.

It ran threw its whole thing had me restart I did and everything seemed ok. I put in a dvd watched about 2 hrs out it then it froze into a bsod which happened so fast I couldn't see the error message and restarted. Since then I have gotten tons of bsod's with either "memory manager" "bad pool header" or "page fault in nonpage area". Its gotten so bad if I start up normally it crashes. If I try the repair option it crashes. If I try safe mode i get to the login and it crashes. If I try safe mode sometimes it will do chkdsk which will either run all the way though restart and crash or crash upon chkdsk.

I've tried to find some help on the net and some people with similar errors have reported replacing the ram and its fixed the situation. Would this be possible for me to do? Id rather not send my laptop in if its something I can fix by replacing ram. Any thoughts? so far Lenovo has been 0 help, I tried postin... Read more

Answer:IdeaPad Y570 Fps issues with graphic card

If your laltop is out of warranty, and I'm assuming it is, then you can try to disassemble it, clean out the radiator properly and re-paste CPU and GPU using high grade thermal paste. Make sure there's always space below your laptop. A cooling pad (passive or active, doesn't matter) could help.

My laptop (lenovo IdeaPad Y570 (08622KU), comes with an i7-2630QM and when I bought it, the description said that it had Turbo Boost, from 2GHz w/o to 2.9GHz with. My problem is that the Intel Turbo Boost is not working. Is there anything that I can do to make it work? As I have looked through my BIOS and have not seen anything pretaining to it, not even CPU clock speed or nothing, which is wierd, and the BIOS is up-to-date as when I tried to flash my bios it said it was older than the one I already had.I have downloaded the Intel Turbo Boost Technology monitor 2.0 and I do not see it go above 2.00GHz when I start to play games. Is there anyway for me to get turbo boost to work?As I have downloaded Throttlestop and enabled Turbo boost through that way, but it is only temporary, is there any solution on how I can get it to work? Also there is no Intel Turbo Boost Service in Serivces
