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: Lenovo flex 3 1580 Nvidia graphics drivers fabric version

You might check to see if the earlier drivers are still present on your system by doing the following Right-click on StartSelect Device ManagerLeft-click on Display Adapters to expand.Right-click on your display adapter, and select Update DriverSelect "Browse my computer for driver software"Select "Let me pick from a list of available drivers on my computer"This should provide a list of drivers previously installed on your systemTo switch to one of them, choose an older driver and click Next.It would be hard to know exactly what driver was installed when your system was new, because Lenovo does not provide release notes for its drivers as its certifies them, but older drivers for the Nvidia 940M card should be available from Nvidia, as well as newer driver versions that those release by Lenovo that may resolve your problem. which can be found here https://www.geforce.com/drivers Good Luck,

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

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

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?

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

I sent in my laptop for repair as the graphics card was reporting code 43 (hardware issue) and wasn't working. I just got it back, and it's not reporting the error, but I can't even start GPU-based games. Previously, games would fall back to running on the CPU. My warranty expired during the repair, but since this is a symptom of the same issue, can I get it fixed? How can I go about getting this laptop to work? Thank you.

I recently purchased a new Pioneer DDJ SB2 DJ controller. Upon downloading the neccessary software and firmware from Serato DJ and Pioneer, I connected my controller to my computer via usb cord provided by Pioneer. However, when I opened Serato to start playing around, a error message came up saying that my hardware was disconnected. I looked up support from Serato as I thought it was a software issue. I quickly realized it wasn't after going through all the troubleshooting steps they provided. I then asked my friend to try out the program on his computer (MacBook), to see if it was a software issue or a computer problem. As expected it instantly worked on his laptop without any issues. I determined it was a problem with my computer. I took it to Geek Squad so they could have a look. Unable to fix it, they believe its a Windows 10 issue. So now I am coming to Lenovo to see if they can fix this problem. I find it ridiculous that out of nowhere my computer can no longer detect a usb plug in from my iPhone, external harddrive, and DJ controller.  Has anybody else had these issues?Specs: Windows 10Version 1607Intel Core i78.00GB RAM64-bit operating system

Please help! I've been using sleep mode for pretty much the entire time that I have had this laptop (one month plus).  This is the first time I sent it into sleep mode for the evening and awoke the next day to find that the laptop refuses to wake up.  The keyboard will light up merrily along with the power button, but the screen will not turn on.  The fans are also running full tilt.  I can hear them running loud and clear, which is abnormal as during normal operations I cannot hear this machine running at all.  After having a jet engine for a previous laptop, this was one of my favorite features of the Flex 3. I have tried doing a ton of different things to get the laptop to wake up again including power resets and using the Novo button.  Nothing has worked.  If I could get at the battery and motherboard battery without voiding my warranty, I would.  My only solution is to try to run the battery down by leaving it on with the keyboard lights as bright as they will go and let the fan run like a jet engine.  Hopefully this will drain the battery in faster than the 4 days that everyone else was reporting.  Anyways, I don't know how everyone's Flex 3's lasted that long on battery anyways.  Mine kept turning itself on. The point of this post is to ask what I can do so that this issue never crops up again.   I love this machine, but if this becomes a recurring problem, I'm going to have to can it and g...

Right now I have a problem with the w key on my laptop key board.  For all the other keys it registers a press when you feel the key give way.  However for my w key you do not have to press it, only rest you finger lightly on it and it will register a keystroke.  This is a problem for me because I rest my finger on W S and E all at the same time which leads to a lot of random w's throughout my typing.  Let me know if there is anything I can do other than replace my keyboard.

Answer:Lenovo Flex 3 1580 Keyboard problem

Hi 18jadietrich, 
 
Greetings. 
 
Try if you have the same issue using an external USB keyboard.
 
As the way described seems to be mechanical in nature and may need hardware servicing.
If your warranty is still active, best to call in technical support to avoid voiding warranty.
 
Users are not required to do manual troubleshooting other than checking if the W key is cleared from foreign materials causing this using compressed air cans.
 
Hope this help answer your query.
 
Regards

I have had my lenovo flex 4 1580 for less than a year, and while I love it there seem to be problems. And I am a law student so this is causing me a lot of anxiety. In the last few weeks the computer has started to freeze, and requires me to physically press the power button to restart it. I have tried a system recovery before the installation of windows 10 creative, I have tried unistalling/reinstalling java, I continue to check my system for updates. I have disabled the background apps. I am not running alot just mozillafoxfire, microsoft word, spotity (maybe), google chrome, and that is about it. And yet the CPU and or memory will  just shoot through the roof and it will freeze. It feels like there is some big program running in the backgroud but I have checked the task master and I do not know what it is..... Now it says that the computer is plugged in and it is not charging...I have checked the conservation mode is off, I tried the settings airplane mode is off,  I do not see any other other problems...am I missing something. I am hoping that these problems can be fixed, quickly,

Hi all, I recently upgraded my Ideapad Flex 4 with a new SSD, and shortly after began noticing random shutdowns, black screens, and failure to POST (it looked as though the BIOS had failed to initialize entirely, as the screen/keyboard backlights did not turn on). These symptoms often happened after the laptop incurred some form of shock, IE: picking the laptop up, setting it down, opening/closing the screen, or even simply tapping lightly on the keyboard or chasis. However, if the laptop were left completely undisturbed, these symptoms would not occur often. I tried literally everything I could imagine short of buying a new motherboard. I reseated (and then replaced) the RAM, I removed the batteries and let it sit overnight, I even tried flashing a new BIOS rom. After all that, I switched the SSD with the original HDD, and it works fine now (actually a little better, because the embedded controller had needed resetting for a while, but I hadn't gotten around to it until then). I wasn't aware that a simple SATA SSD could cause a laptop to fail to POST. As this happened several times over a couple of days, is there any chance of long-term damage to the MOBO/BIOS i should watch out for?

Hello all,

I have a problem installing windows 7 on my new windows 10 laptop. I find it very weird how I change settings in the BIOS to support all legacy stuff like windows 7 and I try to boot from USB all the way to dvd and nothing works. What I mean is when it is done booting, it says " No drivers were found" and there's not a hard drive for me to choose windows 7. It's weird though because there are windows 7 drivers on the official support page, yet I can't install it?

I just need to see a hard drive listed but nothing pops up, and yes I've formatted it already using diskpart.


Thanks

I don't know for a fact but I think the switchable graphics may be the problem with Windows 10. I had this issue with my W500. Go into BIOS and set the display to the Intel chip. Then go to the Intel site and get the driver for the Intel HD Graphics 4600. Manually install the driver using the inf file. If that works, you can do the same with Nvidia. Again you need to set the BIOS to discrete then install a driver. I have to go into BIOS to switch graphics drivers. Maybe someone has a better solution.

Earlier today I booted up my computer and noticed the Nvidia control panel wasn't an option on the right click context menu. After going to services.msc, I noticed the Nvidia display driver service wasn't running, and if I tried to start it, it would immediately crash. I then went to device manager, and saw that under Display Adapters, the only visible one was Intel Integrated Graphics. I wiped the Nvidia drivers, and when I tried installing the latest ones I was told that "This graphics driver could not find compatible graphics hardware." I've already tried resetting BIOS, which did nothing. My concern here is that either the graphics card has died, or it has been shaken out of place somehow. Are there any suggestions you can offer to fix this, or will I have to take apart the laptop? Thanks for your help.Specs: CPU: Intel (R) Core (TM) i5-4200U @ 1.60GHz (4 CPUs), ~2.3GHzRAM: 4GB (4096 MB)GPU: Intel Integrated Graphics (Onboard), Nvidia Geforce GT 720M (Discrete)Model: Lenovo Flex 14

Hi All, I seem to be suffering the same problems as many others. I was using a second screen via a displaylink adaptor on my Flex 15 laptop up until installing Windows10.
My laptop has an intel 4400 GPU, which appears to be unsupported by Windows 10, and is stopping the displaylink adaptor from working. It refuses to accept the latest official Intel drivers, saying they are not supported by Windows 10, and for older drivers it refuses to use them, saying that WIndows has detected an error with the device and stopped it (code 43)
That was the major issue up until today, when my usb DVD drive (a Lenovo Slim USB DVD-RW) stopped working also - it has been working for the last few weeks without any problems. - Again Windows won't accept the correct drivers for the device.


Wondering if the I made a major mistake in upgrading now, especially as my opportunity to revert back to Windows 8.1 disappeared at the weekend.

Has anyone got any glimmers of hope about how/when the correct drivers will be released, and how to get the OS to accept them? Really regretting 'upgrading' to Windows10 at present...

Cheers

Rob

Answer:Lenovo Flex 15 - graphics & now DVD problems

What Intel drivers are you using? Intel claims to support the 4400 graphics:

Intel Download Center

What drivers are you trying for the DVD drive? I haven't seen an optical drive in many years that used anything other than the generic Microsoft drivers.

Not sure whats going on with the website, I entered in my serial number to make sure I was getting the specific drivers.  But nearly all the pieces of hardware have two different drivers. I havent had to download any yet so far since I havent done too much.  But, when it came down to video card drivers it listed Nvidia drivers and when I tried to install it it said that the compatible hardware was not found. Shouldnt there be only one driver? I mean.. maybe multiple versions, but they are listed completely different so I would believe they are different drivers completely.

The BIOS update went smoothly. But with the new BIOS version, no operating system is loaded. The Windows installation hangs in the "Starting windows" stage. Different Linux distributions are also not possible to install and also to boot into Live CD mode. The BIOS switched various modes, AHCI \ Compatible, Legasy \ UEFI. I tried different options.How can I now restore the old BIOS version?

I am trying to run Dishonored game of the year edition on my laptop y510p, single gt 755m. But it's not running and giving a .cpp fatal error. But please note, when I right click on the exe and try running the game using the Intel HD graphics card, it runs just fine, and performs quite well to be honest.  This leads to me believe that there are no issues with the installation, and there is some issue that the game has for this particular notebook with dual graphics card. The game is running fine for people on Windows 8 on this laptop itself, as is evident from the youtube video below.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zBJ8EB6z4TQ Please note I had upgraded to windows 8.1   Is there any possible way I can get it to run using the nvidia graphics card? On disabling the Intel graphics card from the device manager, the game starts up fine, just simply "lags" like its a ppt presentation, meaning it give terrible terrible performance. Can anyone please advise me on this?

I have a Nvidia 9500 GT wich works fine in XP. I upgraded to Win 7 Ultimate 32 bit. The correct driver for the card is 280.26 according to the Nvidia site. The card is compatible with Win 7. However, when I attempt too install the card, it says "NVIDIA graphics driver not compatible with this version of Windows". The Nvidia utility also detects an error when it tries to detect the card.

I suspect there may be a chipset issue?

Answer:NVIDIA graphics driver not compatible with this version of Windows

Welcome to Windows Seven Forums.

You might want to check whether you downloaded the 64-bit version of the graphics driver instead of the 32-bit one. It's an easy mistake to make as I know only too well, having done it myself in the past.

As for your chipset drivers, it won't hurt to get the latest ones for the 32-bit version of Windows 7.

Hi,

I would like to get a clarification on the Graphics driver version numbering of Intel and Nvidia.

Intel uses the following schema to define the driver versions.

7. 14. 10. 1322
VISTA DirectX Intel Build number

For example, this driver works with Windows Vista* operating system and supports Microsoft DirectX* 9. The last four numbers represent the Intel build number.

Intel Identifier Operating System Version
8 Windows 7*
7 Windows Vista*
6 Windows* 2000 and Windows* XP
5 Windows 2000 only
4 Windows*95/98/98SE/Me or Windows NT* 4.0

Intel Identifier DirectX* Version
15 10.x
14 9.x
13 8.x
12 7.x
11 6.x

7 Denotes VISTA Operating System
14 Denotes DirectX 9.x
1322 Denotes Intel Build Number

What is 10, it denotes for ?

NVIDIA Graphic Drivers

NVIDIA GeForce 8400GS
Driver : 7.15.11.6369

7 Denotes VISTA Operating System
15 Denotes DirectX 10.x
6369 Denotes Intel Build Number

Can anyone help me to find out the significance of digit 10 in Intel and 11 in Nvidia driver version?

Good Day All,

From time to time, when attempting to install a fresh copy of Win 10 via USB on some of the new ultrabooks (with PCIe storage), when I get to the partition screen -- after selecting the "Custom" install option -- Windows 10 Install shows no storage partitions because it can't find the storage driver.

This once happened w/ a Lenovo Yoga I was working on for a client. I was able to find the .inf files online and successfully load them via USB -- then I could see the partitions.

Now I have a Lenovo Flex 3-1130 (80LY) w/ a regular sata drive & I wish to do a clean install on a new HDD (because the PC doesn't boot past the Lenovo logo w/ the old hard drive) but the Win 10 installation doesn't see any storage devices -- I made sure to format the new HDD to NTFS prior to install. Thus, I went to the Lenovo driver support page for the device & couldn't find any storage related drivers either.

Any ideas or help would be appreciated?

There is always the possibility I guess that the sata connection/motherboard could be @ fault as well...

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...

Once i plug in the adapter the machine powers on immediately, but it never successfully starts up. The screen stays black and the machine trys to boot up but nothing even happens. This is also accompanied by the CPU fan spinning up, and then the fan turns off after about 5s. -Have tried powering on the device with just Adapter and bios battery, yeilds no results. -Tried a normal power on with all battries in, and adapter in.  Basically tried everything in this link and nothing worked https://www.urtech.ca/2015/10/solved-lenovo-flex-3-flashing-power-light-but-will-not-power-up/

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

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

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?

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...
 
I took their advice and picked up a Samsung EVO 850 500GB SSD for $150.00.  The drive was not found using the Sabrent adapter cable through the 3.0 port but once I plugged the adapter cable into the 2.0 port, I was able to find the SSD in disk managment and format it to a MBR.  I downloaded the samsung clone software and cloned the disk, popped it in my Lapt...

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.

Yeah, so, as you can see fro the title, my laptop is having some issues xDWhat I can tell y'all is it's not that stuff was out of date because I made sure everything was up to date. Then I read on here that to fix the keyboard issue, I could factory reset it. But that didn't work (Note: I haven't updated anything after the reset). Frankly, I don't know what to do. I'm jsut glad it's a touchscreen so I can do some stuff.As far as the wifi thing goes, it doesn't search for wifi. Even when I tell it too, it just turns it off. Product Info (after reset):Edition: Windows 10 HomeVersion: 1607OS Build: 14393.0Product ID: 00326-10000-00000-AA093S/N: R90HSW77Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-6500U CPU @ 2.50 GHz  2.59 GHzSystem Type: 64-bitPen and Touch: Touch support with 10 touch points Please keep in mind I can not use anything except the touch screen and on screen keyboard.Thanks in advanced. Edit: I forgot to mention that the battery icon is now always showing full and charging (though my battery saver still kicks on), and the pc will not hibernate by closing the lid.

Hi Maki,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Forums.
 
I suggest you to re-install the Display drivers for computer and while installing right click and select ?Run as administrator? option as doing this will install the complete driver without any error.

I have bought a new Lenovo Ideapad Flex 4 1580 which is running a Windows 10. It's fan is always on, varying between lower and higher fan speeds, but it never turns off. Computer starts the fan immediately when the "Lenovo" logo is shown, not some time after Windows is started. Windows installation is fresh, there are no new applications installed, I have updated BIOS to the latest version, as well as all the drivers. Windows has the latest updates, as of today (6th of May 2017). CPUID tool is showing CPU temperature of 36-37 degrees Celsius (96 Fahrenheit), which is pretty low and should not have fans running at all. As soon as the temperature goes to 40 degrees Celsius ( 104 Fahrenheit), the fan becomes very, very loud. Task manager is showing minial usage of CPU, Memory and Disk. Any ideas what I might try next?Thanks

My laptop has been performing fabulously since I bought it a little under a month ago. Two weeks ago, one of the usb 3.0 ports on the right side (not the "always on" one) stopped working. If I plug my phone into it, it begins to charge but does not show up on windows. If I plug in my external hard drive, it powers up, but also is not recognized. If I plug in a flash drive with a light, it does not light up and is not recognized. I updated the BIOS (didn't work), tried to update the usb drivers that were installed (didn't work) and then tried uninstalling the drivers in device manager, rebooting and allowing windows to automatically reinstall them (didn't work). The other 2 usb ports work fine, one is 2.0 and the other is 3.0. Any thoughts on what to try next? I may just return it since the place I bought it from will still take it back.













Solved!

Answer:Flex 3-1580, one USB 3.0 port stopped working

I have that problem also. Device Manager indicates unknown drivers for these usb ports. I uninstall them and when it reboots the OS does not pick them up. The system worked fine for a month also and then this happened...I will try next to recover back to original factory settings, but I am not confident that it will fix it or that it will not happen again. I think lenovo quality assurance is poorer than other companies...
