Lenovo B / G Series :: G580 Always Showing Boot / App Menu On Startup

Sep 24, 2014

I have bought Lenovo Essential G580 (59-324061) Laptop (3rd Gen Ci5/ 4GB/ 500GB/ DOS) on Feb 2013, its out of warranty now.
I have installed Ubuntu in the laptop, not sure how i formatted the hard disk during installation. I guess it was full format of hard disk during installation (while selecting hard disk).
Till today everything was working fine. From today morning, there is always a Boot menu which is being displayed with following options:

1. ubuntu
2. PCI LAN: Atheros Boot Agent
3. ATA HDD: ST500LT012-9WS142
4. ATAPI CD: MAT**bleep**A DVD-RAM UJ8D1
I have pressed enter in both Ubuntu and ATA HDD options. But after a brief duration the control comes back to the same menu I have specified before. How to boot to ubuntu.

Lenovo Y510P P/Y/Z Series :: Speakers Seem To Crackle And Pop Whenever Play Music Or Games

Mar 14, 2014

My computer (the Lenovo Y510P) started acting up the first day I bought it. It runs smoothly and everything, but the speakers seem to crackle and pop whenever I play music or games (even at a low volume). I've been seeing that many Lenovo Y510P users have been having this same issue and can assume that the problem is a hardware issue because:
1) Installing different versions of sound drivers AND even downloading the recommended sound drivers from Lenovo DOES NOT WORK.
2) Changing the power options DOES NOT WORK.
3) Plugged in headphones and even bluetooth can hear the static.
I'm thinking about returning this laptop since this is the 3rd day of having it. If there's no fix for this defect, I'm returning it before the 7th day.

Lenovo B / G Series :: G580 With Windows 8 - Keyboard Not Working

May 22, 2013

After entering the initial request for password (successfully), the keyboard is non-functional.  With the exception of the windows scroll key, no other keys work.  Logic suggests that this is a driver problem.  The question is which driver?
BTW, looking at the driver manager, it says that the keyboard driver is a standard PS2 keyboard from Microsoft, dated 6/21/2006, version 6.2.9200.16548.  Can this be?

Lenovo B / G Series :: G580 Keyboard Not Functioning After Windows 8.1 Update

Sep 25, 2014

My wife just updated her G580 with the Windows 8.1 update.  Afterwards, the keyboard does not function - no keys respond when trying to sign into the computer, the touch pad does not work (USB mouse does), even the Onekey Rescue System button does not work.  The only thing that seems to work is the power button.
I restarted the computer and held down the F2 key and was able to get into the Setup Utility where the keys did function (arrow keys, F1, F2, esc, enter).  I didn't see anything obvious to me that might work.  Exiting the utility and back at the sign on screen the keys don't function again.
what might be the cause or a way to recover the keyboard?

Lenovo B / G Series :: G580 Suddenly Stopped Booting Into Windows

Nov 5, 2012

My G580 suddenly stopped booting into Windows.

The first black screen with the Microsoft logo loads but afterwards I just get stuck in a black screen with the cursor which I can move around but nothing more.

So, my solution was to get into Safe Mode. Unfortunately although I don't have a password when Win7 boot, I'm asked for one in Safe Mode. The thing is neither the keyboard, nor the touchpad work so I cannot get past the login screen.

The keyboard works perfectly in BIOS, but not in the Windows login screen for Safe Mode.

Lenovo X Series ThinkPad :: Windows 8.1 Fast Startup On X220

Nov 21, 2014

Having some troubles with my X220 and windows 8.1 and fast startup.

It has been working flawlessly for a few months now with Windows 8 and an SSD but has recently decided it does not want to fast startup - every time I try and boot with the feature enabled the laptop immediately shuts off completely after the boot animation. On pressing the power button again the laptop boots 'normally' i.e. at 'normal' startup speed.

I've tried disabling the feature, using the 'powercfg -h off' and 'powercfg -h on' commands to recreate hiberfil.sys and enabling it again, which worked at first but now it has started having the problem again and this no longer works.

Lenovo X120e X Series ThinkPad :: Bluescreen On Windows Startup?

May 15, 2014

Recently, my x120e began blue-screening (with error code c000021a)  while Windows was starting up. However, if the computer was off for a period of time, usually about 5-10 minutes minimum, it would start up with no problems. I thought it might be overheating except for two things:

1) Once windows started up, I had no issues. No matter how much processing power I was using, it didn't bluescreen or even try to turn itself off

2) When I rebooted in safe mode and looked at what modules it was loading, it always failed after the same one (CLASSPNP.SYS)
I had heard that there were occasionally some significant driver issues with my hardware, so I did a clean re-install of Windows (Win 7 Pro, 64-bit), hoping that this would rule that out.

The issue persisted, and in fact would interfere with a Windows install disk booting into the installer. After I got the installation to complete, the previous issue continued to be present.
I did some Google searching and found that the BSOD error code c000021a is generally caused by a driver or security issue, and the usual solutions suggested are to try to use the "Last Known Good Configuration Option" for windows startup, and to update drivers. However, neither of these things have worked, as it still does this on a fresh Windows install.
I also tried running without the battery (AC power only) and without the AC power (battery only), and neither has fixed the issue.
(Side note: This was originally happening with the original 320GB hard disk that came in the machine. I was going to upgrade to an SSD anyway, and this problem has persisted with the new drive).

Lenovo B / G Series :: New G580 Has Seven Partitions

Aug 21, 2012

Having a  hard time figuring the partitions.   first is a windows  recovery drive.  Second the windows boot partition.  Third i'm guessing a lenovo recovery drive.   Other than C: Windows, The other i'm not sure.

Other info: Made usb factory restore and made one restore point.  When i made the usb factory restore when it finished it asked if i wanted to erase the recovery and i selected yes.   Was thinking maybe G: was created when i made the restore.

Lenovo B / G Series :: G580 Won't Shut Down Properly

Dec 3, 2009

My B570 seems to have developed an odd issue.
Basically it won't shut down or reboot nicely anymore.
I noticed it today when I decided to do a clean install of Windows 8.1. It freezes on the last part of the install (where it reboots) - I manually cut the power by holding the power button. Turn it back on and it and it loads up Windows as usual.
But then when I try to shut it down or reboot from within Windows, the laptop just seems to stall at some point and never finish - Literally forcing me to manually power it down whenever I'm done with it.

Lenovo G580 B / G Series :: Unable To Update BIOS 3.05 To 9?

Jul 6, 2014

I have a small issue with my Lenovo G580 (20150). I have Windows 8.1 and i have noticed that my 4GB of RAM DDR3 run at 800mhz. I have searched for everything, even swapped the RAM but there is no change in the frequency, it simply runs on 800mhz.  I have tried to update the BIOS from 5ECN39WW (v 3.05) to 5ECN96WW, but whenever i try to do that it comes back with the error message "DC detect error!".

Lenovo B / G Series :: G580 OneKey Rescue Won't Start

Dec 29, 2013

My friend has a Lenova G580. She said Windows wouldn't boot and gave it to me to fix.
I confirmed that windows does not boot in normal mode, safe mode, or recovery mode using any of the boot options for Windows. It will either sit at a black screen (it looks like it's almost at the GUI) or reboot if in safe mode before it gets to that point.
So after discussion we decided to whipe the machine using the Lenovo OneKey Rescue system. I hit the Lenovo OneKey button next to the power button.
It spends a couple minutes booting and I get the green grass background that looks like this one for version 7 but it will just sit there for a day without ever loading the the app. No mouse, no windows. Just the brackground image.
What the problem might be for this system? Restoring to factory settings was the last resort and I am alarmed to see this is not working on this ~2 year old system.

Lenovo B / G Series :: G580 BIOS Setup Not Starting

Sep 7, 2013

I've a Lenovo G580 Laptop (2nd Gen PDC B960, 2 GB, 500 GB, DOS) When I bought it came pre-installed DOS, and then I install Windows 7 ultimate (32-bit, i didn't know at that time, 2nd gen PDC are 64-bit). My friend recommend me to disable UEFI from boot setup before installing any non-genuine OS, so I did disable that. My laptop is working fine, but all of a sudden it started to do random mouse freezes, surprisingly pressing ALT+F4 works like a charm to make mouse work again (by mouse I mean pointer actually,I think may be it's because any virus/malware or whatever that was, and also I was planning to change my OS to Windows 8 (it's after 10-11 month of purchase date), so I decided to format anyway, instead messing up with mouse freeze problem.

I'm not able to start my BIOS setup, nor able to use quick boot option (to select various bootable device option from list)

I try to press recovery key (small button near power button), that open recovery module properly (no glitch/error).but unfortunately I don't have any backup made previously so no use of recovery module.

and then I restart my laptop, then I press F2, it shows the first screen of BIOS menu, but my system stuck there (unresponsive state), i've no option else directly turning it off by holding power key for few seconds,..

and then no boot menu F2, F12 still unresponsive.

means whenever i open recovery module it able to open F2 menu (not F12) but that stuck too.else it just completely ignore F2, F12 I'm not a computer noob (not flaunting), but I spend last 4-5 hours looking for a solution for it, but couldn't find any solution by myself.

although my laptop is not in not working state. somehow I manage to install windows 8, but it's really weird that I can not access BIOS menu, my laptop is no longer in warranty period so I can experiment with it any way I want.

Lenovo B / G Series :: G580 Battery Status Destroyed

Dec 17, 2012

I am facing this problem for last few days with my ~3 months old Lenovo G580 laptop.

One morning, i switched on my laptop and found the battery indicator showing "88% available (plugged in, not charging)". and when i removed the power adapter, the laptop would just power off.

in short, the battery is getting detected but is not charging or working anymore.

At first i thought it was some software/driver problem but  then, i checked the Lenovo "Energy Management" tool and found that it was showing the battery status "Destroyed" (Screenshot below.)

My system details:
Lenovo G580,
Core i5 3rd Gen, 4gb DDR3 RAM and 500GB HDD
OS: Windows 8 64bit

Lenovo B / G Series :: G580 BIOS Update Sets Password?

Jun 10, 2013

I have recently downloaded a BIOS update for the G580 - version 20150, and ever since that I am locked out of the BIOS setup menu. It asks for a password, however I haven't set up one, and such, I am unable to change any of the settings.
Changing the values there would be important, because the settings seem to be reset to a default state, for example, I am unable to start any 64bit virtual machines because hardware virtualization is disabled. I was running Qubes OS too, but I am also unable to boot off legacy (MBR partitioned) devices, which I do occasionally to test some new Linux distro when it comes out.

Apropos Linux: as soon as the system starts booting, the screen goes completely blank, and I have to keep pressing brightness-up to see if the system had started. Brightness controls also seem to behave strange under MS Windows too: on the lowest level instead of dimming (what it did before), the screen goes completely blank. The only good thing in this update is that bluetooth now seems to work more reliable under Linux.
Is there a way to remove the password lock from the BIOS and/or revert to the previous version to avoid the screen blanking issue? Would reverting the update also remove the password? If the password can't be removed, is there a safe way to change the settings from a running OS?
