What TPM is in the Edge 2-1580 80QF?

Question: What TPM is in the Edge 2-1580 80QF?

I have gone through https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/product_security/len-15552 and I am unable to find any information on whether the Edge 2-1580 80QF has an Infineon TPM. I have gone through Windows 10 Device Manager for Hardware IDs and all it says are "ACPI\VEN_MSFT&DEV_0001", "ACPI\MSFT0101", and "*MSFT0101", which names all point to a generic Microsoft driver. What is the manufacturer of the TPM in the Edge 2-1580 80QF? Is it Infineon? Has it been generating weak RSA keys?

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.)

Hi Paper Tape , 
 
Please use Novo Button 3  at right side When the computer is off, press this button to start the Lenovo OneKey Recovery System or the BIOS setup utility, or to enter the boot menu.

My son saved his Christmas and Birthday money to buy a Edge 2-1580 laptop from Bestbuy. He had the computer/laptop for 15 days before the LCD chipped and cracked. He did not drop it. Some how the lower right corner bent upward. The soft aluminum base bent easily. It pushed up into the glass and shatter the glass. We took it back to BestBuy to get it repaired or replaced. The Geek Squad sent it to there repair center. The repair center called a few days later to tell us it would cost over $550 to replace the LCD unit. We found that the credit card company we used to purchase it would cover $500 in repairs. The unit cost him just over $649. I think this is a design fault by Lenovo. To soft of a base unit. I would suspect that a lot more glass will need to be replaced in the future. The problem is the availability of the glass is restricted for the average person.  If anyone has an idea of where to purchase the glass or if the internal parts will fit into a different model, please let me know. I have a feeling this will happen again after it returned.

I have a lenovo edge 2 1580 and it worked perfectly fine last night.  Today I pushed the power button and nothing happened.  The little white LED next to the power button is lit but the screen will not turn on and neither will the fans.  I have tried unplugging the battery and RAM and holding the power button but that didn't work.  I also tried putting a paper clip in the little hole next to the power button but that didn't work either.  Has anyone else come across this issue?  I have searched the forums and tried everything I could find but nothing seems to work. The laptop is still under warranty but if I send it in, I was told it will take 2-4 weeks before I will get it back and I have important work information that I need to get from there and it can't wait that long. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

I'm very frustrated with my Lenovo Edge 2-1580. The hard drive went out and had to be replaced one week out of warranty. Recently, it was holding a full charge for hours when unplugged. Then it dropped to not charging more than 25%, and then the next day it would only charge to 3%, and then dropped to 0%. Took it to Best Buy where I purchased, paid Geek Squad to check it out and they suggested a new power cord. When that did not work, they suggested new battery. That has not worked. The laptop works when it's plugged in, says it's charging and the little battery icon shows the movement like it's charging for a few seconds. But it never goes above 0% no matter how long it's plugged in. I found the suggestion on this forum to remove battery and push power button for 30 seconds. I was excited when I turned the computer back on and even though the battery icon showed no charge, it said it was fully charged when I scrolled over it. But when I unplugged, it died. Plugged back in and turned on, and showed "0% available (plugged in, charging)".  I called Lenovo tech support and they wouldn't help me because it is out of warranty. Best Buy Geek Squad is stumped, and they suggested sending it out to have someone more qualified to look at it. They suggested a new mother board - quoting me another $500 on top of the $400 already spent on new hard drive and other issues with this $1,000 computer.  I see a lot of people with this same issue posting in this forum an...

Hello, we purchased a Lenovo edge 2-580. We are using it for business and I need to disable thehot keys. The program I get on needs to use the keys for certain uses. Example: F1 key in the program we are using should be for printing. We hope to disable them will allow the program to work. We read to shut down and then push the Nova key. All places they show to push we do not find a button. Is the nova key the escape button?

Just purchased an Edge 2 1580 with Windows 10 at Best Buy.  Everything is working great except the XBOX App closes quickly after launch.  This issue is present immediately after reinstalling the OS from the built in recovery, and is also present on the I7 6500 with discrete graphics and the I5 skylake models on display at Best Buy.  This issue is difficult to troubleshoot because no logs of the failure can be found in the event viewer- only the following in the TWinUI log:
 
The app Microsoft.XboxApp_8wekyb3d8bbwe!Microsoft.XboxApp was activated for the Windows.Launch contract successfully.
 
 In addition to reinstalling the OS, I have tried multiple driver versions for the integrated graphics and Nvidia discrete graphics.  I have updated the bios,and tried launching the application with a variety of peripherials disabled but the behavior persists.
 
I have also tried the common permission fixes suggested for Metro Apps with this problem: setting permissions for All Application Packages on various folders and registry sections along with re-registering Metro apps using the suggested powershell commands.
 
A similar issue occurs with the Smartglass app.  The app closes quickly after launch, the ony difference being that an error is actually logged (not sure if this error is a hint about why the xbox app is not working):

I've got a new Edge 2 1580.  Everything was good for the first week or so.  I haven't been shutting it down, I've just been letting it go to sleep/hibernate.  Last night I picked it up and noticed that the fan was running.  Upon opening it, I was unable to log in, but couldn't figure out why.  I switched to the onscreen keyboard and was able to log in.  The mouse/trackpad wasn't responding at all.  I opened Chrome and attempted to search for something and realized that no matter what key I pressed on the keyboard, all it would type was 6's.  (which would explain why my password was incorrect). I decided to reboot the laptop and see what would happen, but it doesn't appear to actually shut down.  Even when I click Shut down (well tap on the screen) - the screen goes dark, power button continues to blink slowly. This is a brand new laptop, and my first experience with Lenovo - but it's about to go back to the store.  I can't even find much information about the Edge 2 1580 at all, almost like it's a really out of date machine - but it's got the brand new chipset that was just introduced in November, and it came pre-installed with Windows 10, so it can't be that old. Makes me want to fire up my 9 year old Dell D620 running Windows XP - it still works perfectly.

So, overall I am liking the Edge 2, other then the placement of the power button that I bump way to often. I went through the fiasco of finding a SSD that would work in it, searching before I bought would of saved me the headache, but I have another issue. And onto my issue. Once, and this is the important part, once I get the Lenovo logo on the screen, its into Windows before I know it, like it is supposed to. The problem is, that it can take up to twice as long for the Lenovo logo to appear as to what it takes for the actual boot up. I hit the power button, the screen obviously lights up, but it will sit like that for a variable amount of time before it actually starts booting. Is there anyway to shorten/remove that delay. It's sad when my old ASUS with a 5400rpm hard drive will always beat my new Lenovo in boot up because of this delay. Thanks.

Hi jheng,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Forums!
 
I guess it seems to be a hardware issue, but before I go ahead with the troubleshooting steps I would like to remind you regarding the warranty of your laptop, if the laptop is in warranty then you can take the laptop to the nearest service centre or you can contact the Lenovo contact centre.
 
However, before taking the laptop to the nearest service centre please perform the below given troubleshooting steps and let me know the result of the same to assist you further.
 

Try powering on the laptop only with battery and check whether it works?
Try powering on the laptop only with adapter by removing the battery and check whether it works.
If possible try swapping the battery and adapter to check whether the issue is with the battery or adapter?
If none of the steps didn?t work, toggle the caps lock key and check you can see the LED indication.
Remove the battery and AC adapter
Remove the hard drive and wlan/wwcan cards
Remove both RAM modules
Re attach the AC adapter and boot

 
Please post back whether the above steps helped  you.
Thank you, have a good day.

I just got my Edge 2-1580 back from repair a couple of months ago because it stopped charging. According to the repair sheet it was a bad video card that was causing all of my issues. I can believe that since I keep receiving an error every time the computer would run a hardware scan. Well, every since I got my laptop back it charges, but it keeps crashing because of something about the display not responding. Well I ran a hardware scan and low and behold, i'm still having the same error for the video card. Of course my warranty expired while my laptop was in the middle of being repaired. What can I do to get this issue fixed? This is an ungoing problem and a huge inconvience. I don't want to computer to start charging again. Also, I use this computer for picture editting for my side business and I can't have it crashing every time I try to use Lightroom.Also, since i'm continuing to have the same problem with the video card, I don't think I should have to pay to get it fixed.I have attached a screen shot to show the error message I keep receiving.Error message

What will happen is that I will will be using the laptop with or without the charger cable plugged in and the screen will randomly go black. The keyboard will stay lit up but none of the buttons pressed with change this black scrren state. I even have tried turning off the keybaord blacklights but the whole keybaord becomes unresponsive. It doesn't atter if I close and reopen the laptop or leave it there for minutes or hours I have tested it out. It will just stay in that state until the battery runs out. What I have to do in these situations is hold the power button for it to completely shut off and then turn it back on, only for it to do the same thing. I have timed it. It's very random. Sometimes it does it after a few hours of using it, sometimes after a few minutes.  A few months ago I live chatted with someone who suggested some edits, such as completely turning off sleep and the screensaver but that didn't help. They also suggested that I follow their instruction and download an install certain drivers but that didn't stop the problem either.  I do believe this started right after a windows update a few days after purchase. I've had this laptop for a year and the random black screens happen very frequently now; everyday, multiple times a day.  I'm attending graduate school and you can imagine how annoying it is to be in the middle of class or writing a paper eat home and for this to happen. I'd appreciate any help you can give me.

Lenovo Edge 2 1580 fails to power on completely.  There is a slight glowing from the screeen but other than that it does not complete the power on process.  I was able to get it to boot up by removing the CMOS battery and found a bios updated that needed to be applied:  D3CN32WW.  I applied the bios update and thought that fixed the problem.  I rebooted fine a few times with the CMOS battery in but then stopped again.  There is a note in the bios update file for the Ideapad 300s/500s failing to power on when it is booted the first time or after a period of normal use.  This is very issue I am having.  However, I can only get the computer to work correctly if the CMOS battery is removed.  Anyone else having this issue?

After using the laptop for 1-45 mins the display and audio will stop working without warning. Both plugged in and on battery. I can tell the display is still on because when I press the F9 key, it will get slightly darker. The only thing that I can do is change the keyboard backlight. Number lock and caps lock lights don't respond. It won't go to sleep when this happens. The only fix is a hard reboot, which is very annoying to do every 5 mins or so. Please help.

I recently purchased an Edge 2-1580 and today I started encountering a very annoying issue.  When using my trackpad, my cursor will move itself about an inch diagnal from where I want it.  It doesn't move when I'm typing or anything but when I'm trying to move it to a scroll bar, it'll jump around away from the scroll bar, and its VERY annoying.  I tried "resetting" Windows and it had no change.  I have no idea what to do but its making using the computer extremely annoying.  I can't think of anything that would have set this off, as I made no changes when it started happening.

Hello - I'm tired of sluggish performance when booting/waking up, and think replacing the unimpressive hard drive with a SSD will help. Does anyone have any tips or advice for how to best install an SSD, including what size/type i'll need to buy and how to best install it? Thanks!

Answer:Edge 2 1580 Solid State Drive SSD

Get the right size SSD. Since it's using a mechanical HDD it's 2.5" SATA SSD you'll need. You should however check whether an ordinary 7mm SSD fit or you need to hunt for a 5mm (they're rare).As for SSD size... Boo. 120 GB is fine for normal office use but it depends on how many data you want to bring along, convinience etc. Go for a 240-256 GB I think they're the sweet spot right now for price/size. But  hey even 480-512 isn't that expensive these days. As for what brand/model. Boo again it depends on your requirements. But hey even the slowest will be way faster than your HDD.If you want to have the restore partition on it chose a brand which has a clone tool on their website (which of course only works to clone to their device). Put in the SSD in a USB enclosure and clone your HDD onto SSD if you want to have the restore partition as it's a bit special to clone. Or you can also pay for the full version of Acronis True Image but it's rather expensive (although fantastic tool) If you want a clean install you're more free without it cost extra for special tools. Just download a windows image creator tool from Microsoft.If machine is boprn with Win8 you need to download win8 tool even if you want 10 as you have to install 8 then upgrade to 10 - as the key stored in BIOS is for windows 8 thenEasier if machine is born with 10 then just download tool for 10.Put in SSD and boot from the USB stick to have it do a clean install of Win to your fresh SSD.

Okay so like the title says I recently cracked my laptop screen and since I don't have any warranty I'm going to do the repair myself. My first question would simply be what parts do I need to buy? Looking at my laptop it appears that only the glass panel that goes over the digitizer is what got messed up. The LCD panel is fine and the touchscreen still works so I believe all I have to do is replace the front bezel? Is that possible or do I need to buy a whole new LCD panel to repair my laptop?  Besides two thin cracks going through the screen, most of what shatted was the top right bezel portion.  Please help me ! 

Answer:Lenovo Edge 2 -1580 Cracked Screen. What do I do?

The thing you call the front glass is the digitizer. There is a matrix of VERY fine wires running through the glass.  The whole screen is bonded together so you need to replace the whole panel.

I can't believe I did it but I did, I closed the lid firmly on my keys. I heard a crack and then the screen started shaking all over the place. So my digitizer is broken. I need a new one. Where do I get one and how much are they? I noticed there are several Flex 2 15.6 inch digitizers on Amazon. Will they work? I asked them the question and never heard back. Probably do not speak english. Oh well guys, what do I do?Thanks for reading!!

I've used this laptop for about two weeks worth of gentle use and now, after booting up, trying to do almost ANYTHING freezes the laptop, the things that don't cause it to freeze do nothing. I can't even open the START menu, just right clicking ont he desktop causes it to give me the 'processing' circle and doesn't stop, meaning I can't click on anything anymore. Even just trying to bring up the touch keyboard freezes the laptop, (the keabord also stops working once I reach the desktop). Again, this is only after about two weeks of use compared to my old laptop, (the one I'm using now), which I have admittantly abused for five-ish years and it still works fine, not perfectly but it works. EDIT: So I managed to get lucky and it didn't freeze long enough for me to get into the settings and start a reset, the screen says, "This won't take long", but I suspsect it may take a while.

Answer:New Lenovo Edge 2-1580 Freezes on Desktop

Hi Xros,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Forums.
 
Try the BIOS update.
When in Safe mode, remove your current video driver. Boot up to your regular desktop, which should now be in VGA mode (all video cards have a default VGA mode, when you don't have a driver installed). If the desktop is now not frozen then that helps prove it was your video driver being the problem. See if that fixes the problem.
 
Let us know how you get on.

I was simply typing when it stopped working, so I am not sure if I somehow damaged it.

A colleague gave me his Lenovo Edge 2-1580 laptop to look at due to a charging problem he just encountered.  He said it started acting up about 3 weeks ago.  With the adapter plugged in, it quit charging (even though it registers as "plugged in, and charging").  He bought a new charging adapter, which did not fix the problem.  Then he bought a new battery, with the same results.  Then he gave it to me, and I am completely stumped. Both batteries are completely dead, with no way of charging them at all.  The laptop will run, as long as the charging adapter is plugged in.  I have tried every trick I could locate online, to no avail.  I might add, the laptop is not under warrenty, that ended on 2-20-17.  As a last resort, I did a OneKey Recovery, and took it back to factory settings, just in case some download may have affected it.  Still the same problem.  I am starting to think it is a motherboard issue, but as I said, it is out of warrenty.  Anyone have any ideas??  I have seen it change occationally from "plugged in, charging" (which is usually what it says, and isn't addressed that much online at all) to "plugged in, not charging" (which is talked about quite a bit).  But as stated before, all the tricks mentioned under those site, I have tried and nothing works. Would greatly appreciate ANY advise you could offer.  Right now it is a good paper weight that has to be plugged in all the ...

Edge 2-1580.  When on battery power, screen goes blank after 10-30 minutes of use.  Very consistent, happens every time I try to use it on battery power.  Computer is still running.  Keyboard backlight still toggles.  Power button light still on.  Screen still backlit, just blank.  Will not wake up with mouse, key press, or pressing power button.  Will not turn on when I plug in power cord.  I have to hold power button to force power off, and then it starts up normally.  Does not occur when running in Safe Mode. I have tried updating any drivers that I thought had to do with display, energy management, etc.  I have uninstalled and reinstalled drivers.  I have adjusted power settings to keep screen and hard drive always on.  I have updated BIOS.  I have factory reset.  Nothing works.  Please help!

Hello all, I bought my lenovo Edge 2-1580 in December, but recently, the display won't turn on after I wake it up from sleep mode. The rest of the notebook still turns on and the power button is lit, but the screen will stay black even if I move the mouse or press any keys. I have to do a manual shutdown and then turn it on again, which works but then the problem occurs again when it goes to sleep mode. I've updated the drivers and disabled the notebook from going to sleep, but if I manually put it into sleep mode the problem continues. I've seen this as a common issue regarding Windows 10 as well. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you!

Answer:Lenovo Edge 2-1580 won't wake up after sleep mode

I just resolved this issue recently with my Flex 3 1580, so hopefully my solution works for you.  First, update the video/graphics driver (intel or nvidia) from the Drivers & Software page on support.lenovo.com.  Test sleep mode again.  If the screen is still not turning back on, then update your BIOS.  Back on the Drivers & Software page, look for the latest BIOS update and run it.  In both cases, but especially for the BIOS update, make sure your laptop is plugged in.

I have a 3 month old Lenovo Edge 2 1580. The video card is listed as Intel(R) HD Graphics 520, which is shown to be up to date and working properly. However, my computer also has the Nvidia Geforce card, so I'm not sure which is supposed to be using.  When I try to connect an external monitor, the laptop does not detect it. I've tryied multiple monitors using just HDMI or VGA-to-HDMI. Both setups worked fine for the past few months, but today, no configuration will work. Both monitors are working just fine when connected to my other laptop with the same cables. It has to be something internal to the laptop.  This happened once before, and I was able to fix it by changing the settings of the graphics card (I think). I can't remember what I did, but it involved chaning something in my laptop.  Any leads?

Hello, I am using a Lenovo Edge 2-1580. I want to use a Logitech G230 headset with it; since it has two plugs (one for microphone and the other for audio output), I am using a Headset Buddy adapter with it. The adapter is plugged into the combo headset jack on the left side of my laptop. The sound coming from the headphones is fine. However, the microphone input is dreadfully quiet. I tested it by fiddling with the mic with my fingers, which should produce a loud, static-y sound, but I only get a faint rustle. In the Control Panel, I tried going to Properties on the Microphone Array to turn up the volume and Microphone Boost to the maximum setting (+10.0 dB. I've seen people get it higher in videos, but I can't seem to do that) and turning all Enhancements. Even still, I have barely any audio input from the microphone. Where is the problem? (in software, the headset, the adapter, the laptop, in the Control Panel, etc.)How do I make the microphone input louder if everything is already set to the maximum setting?Do I need any new hardware/accessories?Should the Control Panel state that the audio input device is a Microphone Array? If I'm using a headset, should it say something else?Would a different headset, say Logitech G430, work better? Thank you!

Hi!
 
I have an Edge 2 1580 version 1510 with Windows 10 Home. I would really like to be able to keep her plugged in around home to reduce battery cycles, but have her set up so she only keeps the battery half-charged (which i hear will extend the life).
 
Is this possible? An app, maybe?

Hello to all, This is my first post.
Today I found out that Google had limited its search service on Edge by MicrosoftInsider.es, and this happens
This is a great hoax, and also seems to make it or for two reasons:
1. Attempt of Stop of growth of Microsoft Edge
or 2. Google Revenge
What is the solution? This:
Press F12 (if you are on a laptop press Fn + F12), This open the F12 Tools
After go to Emulation, in Browser select or Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox, and Solutionated.
Well, I hope to see their opinions and also see that users of Google in Edge make.

I've been having this problem since I upgraded to the creator's update. Sometimes everything works perfectly, but most of the time I have these issues:

Edge won't connect to internet or load anythingI can't close tabs in EdgeThe "Close all tabs" option in edge doesn't work, only closes 1 tabI can only get Edge to close using Task ManagerWindows Store apps like Twitter and Netflix won't connect and also sometimes won't closeI can't check for Windows updates through settings (won't connect again)

The internet works on third party apps that weren't downloaded in the Windows Store, like Chrome, Firefox, Opera, and Spotify. Does anyone have any idea what could be causing this or how I could fix it? Thanks so much!

Hi ineedhelppls. Welcome to the TenForums @ineedhelppls

First thing I would do is run these commands at command prompt(admin). In the following commands do not key in the information in brackets, it is there to tell you what command does.

ipconfig /flushdns (Clear the dns cache)
nbtstat -RR (release and refesh NetBIOS names)
netsh int ip reset (reset ip settings)
netsh winsock reset (Reset Winsock Catalog)

Test.

Then I would disable IPv6. You will notice it can be enabled just as easy.

https://support.microsoft.com/en-gb/...nts-in-windows

If you still get issues I would recommend a network reset. You will lose wireless passwords.

Start=>Settings=>Network and Internet=> scroll down to bottom on the right hand side, last option, Network Reset.

I ve bought thinkpade edge 13 (0221RY6) and formated my hdd (was trying to install win XP). But now i am ready to switch on Windows seven and i am very sorry that i ve formated my HDD with pre installed windows 7.Somebody who has same machine PLS Can u give me your copy of recovery usb or link on it! Or any other help.THANKS!

Answer:I have lost my Recovery HDD with pre installed windows 7 on ThinkPad Edge 13 edge PLS Need HElp!

This is why one should burn recovery media before fiddling with the HD.
 
One option would be to download a legal Windows 7 ISO and install it.  Or borrow one.  You can use the product key on the bottom of your machine (or in the battery compartment) to activate the installation.  You may have to use the phone option to activate.
 
Working Legal Windows 7 Download Links 
 
To do this you must install the same version of Windows that came on your machine - but it can be either 32 or 64 bit.
 
Your machine came with Win7 Home Basic 32.  I can't say for certain that these "all version" ISOs include that version, but you can try and see.
 
Once you have Windows installed, go to the Lenovo support page and enter your machine type.  That will take you to a list of drivers and apps to download.  Expand the ThinkVantage option and install ThinkVantage System Update.  You can then run it and it will download and install the other software automatically.
 
I'm basing this on what I see on the US pages.  Yours may be different.
 
Good luck,
Z.

I tried upping from recommended 250% to 350% for use of a genealogy program made that program larger but nothing else and if I use pinch to spread out and enlarge then screen impossible to work on because it just jumps from side to side I set everything back and restated and still the same display smaller than before.  I have Nvided GEForce 960M video card and right now laptop is useless.

Answer:Display on XPS Infiniti edge to edge now so small cannot read anything

I didn't even realize you could go that high.  When I tried 250%, some things became so large that it became impossible to click important buttons since there wasn't enough display area to present them.  It sounds like your genealogy program isn't scaling-aware.  Also note that in some cases, after changing the scaling setting, you need to log off and back onto Windows for the change to fully take effect.
Also, what version of Windows are you running?  The display scaling functionality has changed significantly with each release of Windows from Win7 on, including within the various releases of Windows 10.

After the TH2 update on my desktop, I was blown away that Edge now only consumed 30-150mb, even with a twitch stream rolling in the background for extra measure. However, on the SP3 (after TH2) the memory usage is still the same

Hello, I just bought an Edge 15 and I'm wondering if backlight bleed is a common problem with it. There are several places around the edge of the display where the backlight discolors the screen. I've attached a picture; note the top edge of the screen especially. Is this normal, or is it worth looking into a repair?  Also, I'm surprised that this model does not appear on Lenovo's website at all. I have only found one review for it, and it seems Best Buy was the only one to sell it. Anyone know about that? EDIT: Apparently my thread was moved to the ThinkPad Edge forum, though I'm pretty sure that this is not a ThinkPad Edge series device (as far as I can tell that series was discontinued and this was not ThinkPad branded). If someone could clarify that would be awesome. Thanks!

I am running a Flex-3 1580 with Windows 10.  I don't know if it is a hardware problem, Windows 10, problem or the combination of the two, but my system uses all of my 8GB of memory and locks up 2 to 3 times a day requiring me to force power off in order to resume processing.  Am I going to have to get more memory or is something else going on that I need to fix?  Lenovo Solution Center says that all is well with the system.

Lenovo Flex 3 1580 I've tried multiple lenovo AC adapters and the laptop still won't charge. It's got about 4% battery left so it's turned off atm. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the battery drivers, but that did nothing. The charging light won't come on, the only light is the low battery light. The battery is the built-in kind so taking it out isn't an option. I don't know what to do, someone please help.

Answer:Flex 3 1580 Won't Charge

I'm having the same problem! Mine's down to 0% so it has to constantly be plugged in. I'm really hoping someone can help with this!

Hello everyone, I'm new here and I come with a problem. My flex 3 just stopped working, anytime I turn it on it shows the Lenovo start screen then goes black and shows the Lenovo start screen and goes black and the process goes on and on irrespective of the power source. Can someone please help me?

Answer:Flex 3 1580 crashing

Hi, Lke ?
 
Thank you for writing in to the Lenovo Forum - happy to have you here today.
 
What happens when you get to that screen? Does it reboot, or crash, or hang?
 
You can also start by flushing out all static, remove AC adaptor and hold down power button for about 15 seconds.
You could also re-seat the RAM & HDD by looking into HMM
 
Update us how it goes

Dear Lenovo, I purchased this device, Flex 3-1580, at Office Depot some time ago. At random times, it will do the following: Video goes black; Backlight remains on. Audio will stop as well. Can't tell if any fan is running or not, nor can I tell if HDD is running. Keyboard may or may not be lit, but is unresponsive. Only way to get out of it is to hold power button until it turns off, let things clear out for ten seconds, and restart. Here are the conditions under which, after some months of trying to reproduce the results consistently, this crash seems to happen: a) Does it regardless of power source, be it battery or AC adapter. b) Unit can sit on a table for hours, unused, and not crash; but it may crash - eventually (keep that in mind, it'll come in handy). c) Unit only seems to crash when I'm writing a Word document, working an Excell worksheet, or attempting something productive, like chatting with a Lenovo TS person to try and resolve this (which I've attempted three times, and all three times the thing has crashed mid-chat). I've read the forums about similar problems. I've updated the BIOS to the best of my ability. Installed the new ME software. I'm not updating the video driver because as far as I can tell that's impossible at my end, and there's no way I'm reinstalling Windows 10 if I don't have to. So let's revisit b) and c) above. Unit can sit on a table, perhaps just watching youtube or something, and nothing happens...

Hi.  My laptop seems to crash at roughly 1 hour of use, regardless of battery life or what I am doing.  Screen goes black and I am unabe to do anything.  I am still able to adjust the brightness of the backlighting and I can see that the screen does turn off and on, but it will still be black.  This started happeneing a little while ago.  No idea why honestly.  Any insight would be appreciated.  I have updated the display drivers only since it was crashing a lot when wacthing youtube.

I have a Flex 3 - 1580 that is only a couple months old.  It was working fine earlier today, but now when I try to power it on, nothing happens. Is there a fix for this, or do I have to return it for another one?

Answer:Flex 3 - 1580 won't power on

 
Hi RootieSart , 
 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
Would there be any indicator light showing up on the power (was it solid on ) Battery LED (was it blinking).
Initially what is advised is to unplug from the ac adapter and press down the power button for 15 seconds. 
 
To turn it back on using the Novo button ( item3 page 13). A novo menu screen should show up on the display. 
Any indication of power?

I recently got a Flex 3 1580. It has both the integrated Intel 520 gpu and the nVidia 940M gpu.  Some of the games I'm playing for some reason don't seem to like the Intel gpu. I know for non windows store apps you can right click on the exe and tell it which gpu to use.   As far as I know you can't do that with the windows store apps. So my question is this.  Would it be okay to disable the Intel 520 in the device manager or would that cause problems with the machine or windows?

A Flex3-1580 over the last week or two is getting frequent (daily) BSOD with error "UNEXPECTED_STORE_EXCEPTION".  I have done Lenovo's built-in hardware check, Windows check disk, and SFC scan, all coming back clean.  All updates have been installed via the Lenovo app and Windows Update.

Purchased a Flex 4 1580 from Costco (i7-7500U Processor at 2.7GHz, 16 GB ram, Intel 620 video) and wiped the SSD to install Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit. I am half way through, and discovering that Lenovo doesn't offer Windows 7 drivers for the Flex 4, only Windows 10. Can someone point me to Windows 7 drivers etc for the wifi, video etc that would work? Like will the Flex 14 drivers be ok? Thanks! Mark

My screen has been plagued by yellowing in the corners but the digitizer is perfectly fine. I was wondering if anyone has any answers on whether or not you can just replace the lcd on laptop without replacing the whole screen/digitizer. the whole screen is 150 dollars and a lcd is just around 50-100. Also if you can point me to any part # or repair manuals that would be great. Thanks

Images and text will randomly go a bit wild, as seen in the picture. Screenshots taken by the compy didn't display the issue, which is why I had to take a photo. It'll pop up intermittently, If I scroll the screen the text sometimes reverts to normal, other times it stays. This happens with browsers and Word, at the least. I would imagine it's a software issue?

In the last saturday I turned off my notebook normally. Since today (monday), I press power button, the led power indicator stay on for five minuts, after that it power off. Nothing is showing on the screen. When I plug the AC Power, the AC Power indicator stay on, but every ten seconds it flash. Anybody else had this problem? Is there something that can I do, like battery reset, hard reset, etc.? Thanks,

I am writing to ask that you please update support for Lenovo flex 3 1580for windows 10.This model is sold as 80R40008USall over the place, and many are getting this computer with windows 10 reinstalled.It does not make sense that Lenovo supports the older model processor found in the 1570 but not the 1580.Lenovo should stand behind their products even if sold on amazon (through prime directly from them new!).Otherwise it should have an ad that all products not bought at Lenovo are not supported.The laptop is quite buggy in the Windows 10 environment. A little research shows that this is quite common, and is not an issue with my particular unit. It is especially buggy with the display/graphics, and it went black some, or does not react well to switching to tablet mode and back. I contacted lenovo chat and the reply was that this model is not supported or tested with windows 10.  It has the newer i5 6200U in it ! I think you would agree that a laptop this new, should be clearly supported and worked on for drivers etc. to operate well with Windows 10.Just because it is sold elsewhere, and directly through Lenovo does not mean they should just forgo any support for it. What otyher company says, if you did not buy it directly from us, we will deny we know anything of the model number or support it.That is very unpleasant for Lenovo consumers.Please fix issues with windows 10 immediately. Thank you

bottom right corner?I bought my Flex 3 1580 in december and this just happened. The screen in the bottom right hand corner is yellow and it wont go away. I don't think this is a driver issue but rather a hardware issue. I haven't dropped my computer and have overall handled it very carefully so I don't know what could have caused this. Does anyone else have this problem?

When running Windows 10 Update on a 6 month old Flex 4-1580, a Lenovo Firmware update momentarily appears in the list of updates, but then disappears. When I run Lenovo Update, there is a BIOS update available. When I run that, I get a message: "This BIOS is only for Lenovo IdeaPad, 510S14IKB 310S15IKB, YOGA 510-141IKB 510-15IKB. Do you want to continue?" If I look on Lenovo Support for my system, there is a BIOS update for the Flex 4-1580 indicating a security fix. This is very confusing. What am I to believe? Is the BIOS update available via Lenovo Update valid or should I do a direct download from Lenovo support? JohnD

OK, so the one of the first things I do when I get a new laptop is disable the hot keys so I can use the function buttons without pressing Fn.  For anyone using MS Office, especially Excel, I imagine this must be a high priority given how useful the function buttons are compared to how little you need to use the hot keys. So to disable the hot keys you need to access the Bios. This is not a question, just an observation.  The user manual for the Flex 3 says to use the Novo button to access the Bios, but this does not work.  You get a menu with a Bios option that just takes you back to Windows. What does work is to use press and hold Fn + F2 while restarting.   That takes to a configuration menu where you can disable the hot keys.  This has been posted elsewhere in the Lenovo community (that's where I found it!) but I just wanted to share a new topic for the Flex 3 since this seems like a nice machine, but it's pretty frustrating not to be able to make a simple customization like this from the User Manual! Hope this helps someone, have a great day! Mark

Hi, I was thinking of buying this hybrid:https://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?item=N82E16834332513 And then upgrading it with this:https://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?item=N82E16820250085 I'm not clear on whether this voids the warranty or not? As close as I can understand it, it "may" if I mess something up? I've opened at least 100 laptops without messing anything up, so I'm confident I can do it without damaging anything, but I have also seen motherboards and touchscreens die in the first year, and don't want to mess up that part of the warranty for an SSD upgrade. I figured I'd make sure it powered on, then shutdown, crack it open, install the M.2 SSD, clone everything over, wipe the old SSD once into windows, and then finally perform the product registration. (Which uploads all your hardware specs? So they'd know everything was A-Okay with the new drive in place?) Thoughts? Anyone got more info on how strict they are with self service?

I have a Flex 3 1580 and wanted to change the HD to and SSD for faster performance.  My father gave me an Intel 535 series 250GB SSD and I had nothing but problems attempting to get it cloned becuase the lenovo did not recognize the drive was plaugged in using a Sabrent 3.0 Hard Drive adapter cable.  Finally, I was able to get it to show up through disk management but was unable to format to a boot drive (only GPT).  Only once was I able to login using the Intel SSD and it booted me out 1 minute later. Henceforce, when attempting to boot from the Intel SSD I received an 'inaccesable boot device' blue screen error.  My father commited several additional hours trying to get the computer to boot including recloning the drive in his desktop tower. Always got the same error.  
 
After researching more issues, I finally stumbled on a forum thread here describing the same issues with multiple makes including the Crucial MX100, Crucial BX100, ADATA SP920SS, PNY XLR8. https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Lenovo-IdeaPad-100-305-500-Edge/quot-no-drive-found-quot-installing-w-8...

Can the Flex-3-1580 laptop video card support 2 external monitors?  There is only 1 HDMI port but I am hoping a HDMI splitter can be used to attach to external monitors.  I cannot determine from materials provided.

Answer:Flex 3-1580 - Some.Keys.Not.Working

Hi kelcin , 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
Noticed how the keys are localized and aligned (Space, backspace, the center enter key, and the forward slash.) , as this maybe on the board level of the keyboard and not just the key itself. 
 
If the same failure would also happen in the BIOS then probable hardware issue should be reported to technical support team for in warranty repair.
