Lenovo B / G Series :: G570 - Internet Connection Gets Yellow Exclamation Mark On WiFi Icon
Jul 26, 2012
I received my G570, and have had internet issues since. It can connect to my WiFi network, however after using the internet for a few minutes, it consistently gets the yellow "!" over the wifi icon in the task bar and says no internet connection and I loose my connection. I know it is an issue with THIS laptop since my old and decrepit HP laptop which sits next to it works perfectly fine using the same network, as well as my smartphone and room mate's devices.
I have downloaded the Lenovo update software and attempted to use it. I get a message saying something along the lines of no available packages, assuming that means everything is up to date in terms of drivers.
I have done some research with the terms "lenovo, g570, wifi, internet, problems, connection" and yield many pages, however none have seem to provide a solution that works for me.
My acer travelmate P645m internet connection is quite bad. It happens quite frequent as well.
When I connect my laptop to wi-fi (my own router and in the library), it always has a yellow triangle exclamation mark all of a sudden. As my phone connects to those wi-fi too, I have checked the internet is still working fine when it happens on my laptop, so I am sure it is my laptop that doesn't connect to the wi-fi stably. I will have to turn off the wi-fi and turn it on again to make sure it has access to the internet.
I know it is not a complicated process of turning off and on the wi-fi on my laptop but because I just bought the laptop two months ago, if there is any hardware problem, I would like to fix it within my warranty. Why the internet connection on my laptop is so poor?
I have successfully completed a fresh install of Win XP Pro on by laptop and the final driver that just will not install is the Intel Chipset driver. I have downloaded the latest driver from Dells website using my laptop tag to get the correct drivers.
In device manager I have a yellow exclamation mark against SM Bus controller. However, when I install the chipset driver at the very end, the install says 'error, install will now end', then you click close and then it wants to reboot. SM Bus controller remains with an exclamation mark in the device manager.
I think when I set up this computer I selected that it always maintain the wifi connection. Normally this is fine, but if I am installing a program I may not want the computer to connect to the internet.
I recently clicked on the wifi icon in systray and right-clicked on my connection and selected "disconnect". It did, but it immediately reconnected. Where is the setting where I can control this?
Recently I got my new inspiron n5110. after i had installed OS, i installed drivers, with bluetooth driver amongst them. I managed to make everything work just fine, except bluetooth radio. I downloaded original driver from Dell support page and installed it, but device manager shows "Generic bluetooth device" with a little yellow exclamation mark. when i go to the properties of the device, it says "Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43)". i tried a lots of things but none worked. then finally i tried to uninstall driver, and found out that uninstaller throws error: "There is a problem with this Windows Installer package. A program run as part of the setup did not finish as expected. Contact your support personnel or package vendor." i'm running win7 enterprise x64 ....
I have an ideapad z500 which I'm happy for, but it annoys me that when 'm at my college I can't properly connect to the wi-fi the school has. When I connect, I'm on for usually about half an hour, but then I get the "limited connection" yellow triangle and I have to deactivate the networkcard before I can get a normal connection.
Other times I simply just can't connect, it tries but it fails. When it does, I have to reboot the computer before it succeeds, and that's no good when you are working on a project. At home i have no problems, it works nicely.
Also, how to enable the WiDi on the z500.
My PC is running Win 8 with the Intel Centrino n2230, Intel 3rd. gen i7 (3632qm)
I have an Ideapad Y510 that has Vista and I'm having a problem connecting to the internet. I have other computers running in the house (this one I'm now typing on) so my internet is working correctly just not on my laptop. The laptop was working and connecting but something happened and now it says that I have limited access to the internet.
I read that it may not be getting an IP address assigned to it. I called my internet provider and they ran through their troubleshooting steps but figured it was in the computer. I don't know if the driver has been corrupted. I got the software CD that came with it and tried to load it again but it didn't work (not sure if I did it correctly).
My lenovo g570 laptop does not found network adapter for wifi and blue tooth it did not recognize the hardware part may be. because i install software for that so may time. few days back i used wifi as well as bluetooth in my lapi but for last two or three month i just used lan for internet connection and in between i changed my os which is win 7 ultimate to win 7 proff. I don't know what is the reason for that.
Following are the laptop configuration: Quick link:
Intel Core i7-4510U 2GHz Processor1TB Hybrid HDD8GB DDR3L 1600 Memory15.6" 1920x1080 LED Glossy WedgeIntel HD Graphics 5000Bluetooth 4.0Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 3160DVD Recordable (Dual Layer)4-Cell Lithium-Ion BatteryWindows 8.1 (64-Bit)Initial setup went well. After 4 hours or so while surfing webpages, suddenly it started showing no internet connection and asked to reload webpages. So I looked at the wireless network icon on the bottom right corner which showed full bars. A few seconds later a yellow colored triangle with exclamation mark appeared on the network icon showing no internet and limited internet.
After turning the wifi off and back on the internet connects and works for few hours. After few hours, it lost internet connectivity again with the same above symptoms. I have this laptop now for 3 days and in past 3 days I had this problem at least 25 times.
I'm new to Dell and all of a sudden a great many files have a blue clock face and red exclamation point on top of file thumbnail. What does it mean and how do I remove them. Can I remove them in bulk. I backed up my whole computer yesterday, but the blue clock and exclamation point still remains on many many files and folders.
Yesterday everything was working fine, I turned off the laptop, went out, turned it on in the morning and bam, no internet. I reinstalled drivers, then reinstalled the system and nothing changed. It certainly isn't router's fault, since other devices can connect to the Wi-Fi
I solved it, somehow wireless network card got turned off and I just figured out Fn+F5 prompts a window where I could turn it back on.
I had my pavilion zv5000 upgraded from windows xp to windows 7 but the thing that is wrong about it is that it says no driver flies are required or had been loaded to this device. And their is a yellow exclamation point on the base system
Have new z50 70 with continuing wifi connection problems.
- ethernet connection ok so just wifi problem -other pc's ok using this router (Thomson Gateway TG585v7) - updated driver and changed channel - no improvement - returned pc and tried replacement - same problem with regular dropped connection - tried pc on neighbours router and monitored connection - no problems
Still don't know whether it is a pc or router problem and am reluctant to buy a new router just to find out.
I just purchased the Ideapad S415 Touch. The wifi connection drops OFTEN. It still shows that it is connected, but there is no internet pages load, email stops working, etc. If I hit "disconnect" on the connection, then hit "connect" again, it works great . . . . for a few more minutes or an hour or whatever. I went into "properties" and changed the settings on roaming and power management per an article I found on this site. I think this may have worked a bit, but it's still happening.
Basically, i recently purchased a Lenovo Ideapad U410 blue from Canada Computer & Electronic. Everything was good until recently, I am having trouble connect to my home network!! It was fine, but two days ago, it just frequently drop out from my home wifi( keep saying limited access, no internet connection, then identifying.....no network access)
The problem is, all other devices i got are fine! My other laptop, my phone, and my ipad are all good to connect to my home wifi!!! And what's more confusing is that, my U410 is OK to connect to other network like the hotspot I set up from my iphone(just trying), my frds' wifi......And what's even more bothering, is that it happened two days ago, and yesterday the problem just magically disappeared!! I used it surfing internet for the whole last night with my home wifi and no problem with it.
However, i woke up this morning, problem popped up again,, can't connect to internet! I mean, the signal is super good!!!! no problem with detecting network, even connecting, it just wont identify or whatever. Drivers all up to date! I mean is a brand new computer....
SO is it my laptop's problem, or my network adapter's problem , or is it my router's problem!!!
I have been having some issues with the WiFi lately. Whenever i turn on the laptop, the internet conection is limited. i have to run the Windows troubleshooting every time i turn on my laptop to fix this.
I updated the Wifi drivers through Windows Update but the problem persist. What can i do to fix this?
My Lenovo G570. Yesterday, it was working perfectly, I properly shut is down. I have set a BIOS pasword. Today, when I switch it on, I was unable to type the pasword becasu some keys were not working. However, I managed to loged in with On Screen Keyboard. After analysing it, I came to know that some keys on numpad includeing 0,2 and on the 2nd line(vertical numerical keys) 1,2,3,4,7,8,9,0 are not working. I tried to re-install the OS but I set a BIOS password containing one of the missing keys.
I've looked at the other threads and tried removing the battery while the laptop is off for 30-40 seconds but it doesn't run because it's not getting power from the charger at all.
The laptop is a couple years old and the hinges on both sides have been pried off (can provide pics) but I never had problems until now - I plug the charger in but it won't charge and even if I pop the battery out it STILL doesn't charge!
One night, I had to set the charger upright in order for it to charge. Today I had to set the bulky and heavy part of the charger higher above the laptop in order for it to charge. Now, how to get this thing to work because proping the charger upright or higher than the laptop isn't working anymore!
I've noticed a couple weeks ago when I was visiting my parents that the adapter emits a beeping sound - notice that I said the adapter NOT the laptop. If I unplug it the beeping sound fades. The beeping sound comes from the adapter and when I unplug the cord going from my laptop to the adapter you can hear the beeping sound fade away from the prongs that conect the adapter to the laptop (not the prongs that plug into the outlet).
Like I said before it doesn't matter if I've plugged it into an outlet with OR without the battery in it, the laptop does not receive any power from the adapter or recharges.
First my notebook specs Lenovo G570 (part number: 43345JU) i5-2410M 8GB RAM Qualcomm Atheros AR9285 WLAN dont know the make of bluetooth (mostly broadcomm) Came with Win7 Home premium x64
The Win7 that it came with also had lenovo energy management through which I could toggle the WLAN and bluetooth on and off. Since I never used the bluetooth, I turned it off via energy mgmt.
Also interestingly, when I was running Win7 I had it dual boot with Ubuntu. And if my Bluetooth was turned off via EM from win7... bluetooth wouldn't be recognised in ubuntu and there was no way of turning it back on... I had to boot back into win7 and turn it on via EM and boot back into ubuntu.
Recently I updated to Win8.1 but hadn't turned on the bluetooth before doing so. In Win8.1 the bluetooth device is not recognised anywhere..not in PC settings(metro UI), not even in device manager. I tried to install the energy management for 8.1 from the support site but it was extremely buggy and didnt find any option to turn on bluetooth. The old EM didnt install properly in comaptibilty mode.
In ubuntu now (dual boot with win8.1) its still the same. Bluetooth not regonised just as before.
I cannot go back to win7 now. There is no proper EM for win8.1. There is no option in BIOS regarding bluetooth. How do i turn on the bluetooth adapter?
My Lenovo G570 battery is stuck at 90%. It says plugged in, not charging. It just happened over night. Next day battery refuse to work.
In windows it says battery 90% and is not charging but battery has no charge at all. When I disconnet the A/C power laptop just shutdown immediately. As soon as I unplug the power laptop just shutdown as there is no charge in the battery.
I did reinstalled the Power management and also updated it. I all unplugged reboot in OS, restart, put battery back and boot into the OS back. Nothing seems to work.
I just installed Lenovo Energy Management in windows 8 before I was trying in windows 7. In the battery tab there are two options
Maximum battery Life Optimized battery Health. It is selected to "Optimized battery Health" and won't change regardless of power plan. I click on "Maximum battery Life" and when I open the app again it reset it to "Optimized battery Health".
Lenovo Solution Center say that battery life is GOOD. "Your battery is in good condition".
i have encounter a new problelm with my laptop(G570) that it does not intall my new printer driver which is hp deskjet 1510. it says that drivers does not exist for the machine. i dont understand what should i do , when the same printer i install in my desktop home pc its get intall. even i take technical assistance from the hp. they check and say that this the problem is with ur laptop.they say that ur laptop machine is not allowing the printer to intall driver. i dont understand what should do in this situation i tried so many(install and uninstall) times but same problem prisist.
I recently purchased a new x201 and noticed that one of my three USB ports is colored with yellow plastic (like the yellow surrounding the power plug). What this special coloring indicates? I can't find any literature explaining the port's special color...
I have read about many issues regarding Wifi connection (connection drops often without any reason, poor signal strength, too long time to establich connection...). My problem could sound similar, but it's rather different:
Although my wireless connection appears like Enabled in Win8, I cannot switch it on / connect. It appears like Not Connected (Wifi = Off). In fact, I cannot see any wifi network when the list of available networks used to be.
- I checked BIOS, and it's set as Enabled. - I updated BIOS to the last version. - I updated wireless wireless drivers to the last version - I modified the wireless configuration as it's especified in the long forum thread for Wifi issues
But nothing has been successfull. For some strange reason, I cannot switch the wifi device on.
I have a Lenovo Ideapad p500 Touch. I recently upgraded my router to an AC1900 Router, and with it i wanted to update the internal wifi on the Lenovo. I purchased an Intel 7260 AC Dual Band with Bluetooth seen HERE . Install was pretty straight forward, seeing how im a IT Tech. Where I had an issue is with the drivers and getting bluetooth properly set up. The wifi part works without an issue. I can't seem to get bluetooth to work at all. When i go to device manager I see bluetooth but only if I select to view "hidden Devices". Im running Win 8.1 64x, Ive tried installing the drivers from intel, but it never seems to actually install the bluetooth driver. I don't get the icon in the system tray.
I keep having issues waking up from sleep with my T440s. It WILL NOT connect to wifi and the wireless adapter under windows adapter settings disappears. Only thing that fixes this is a reboot. I have removed "allow windows to turn this device off" under wireless settings.
This is a brand new TP T440p and I installed a fresh copy of Windows 8.1 Pro on it (licenced). I've applied all Windows updates and installed all drivers/BIOS updates from Lenovo System Update.
The computer works fine, but when I put it to sleep and wake it back up, the external monitor is almost always flickering (there is a 1mm movement to left and right, line by line - I'll shoot a video, if the camera will be able to capture the movement, because it's very "fine"). Sometimes it stops after a few minutes, but most of the time I need to re-boot the computer.
Also, not always, but many times the WiFi connection is lost and I can't reconnect unless I reboot the computer.
