Lenovo G550 B / G Series :: Will Not Let To Enable WiFi
Feb 19, 2011
I have a problem with a G550 laptop, running windows 7. No matter what I do, wifi will not work. When the manual switch is set to wifi on and i press fn+f5, nothing happens. The wifi card is recognized in windows, i have the latest drivers from lenovo support page and so on. I have tried literary everything, including windows reinstall and still nothing. When I run windows diagnostics it also says "wifi options (or something like that) are not enabled" and i tried with readycomm which says the same thing.
i have a very peculiar problem with my lenovo g550 lap, i kept it aside without using for 2 days, when i switched on the next day it didn't start, i removed the battery and tested but nothing worked only the battery charging light was glowing. suddenly after an hour and half it started working automatically and it worked fine throughout the day, next day i had same problem it started about 2hrs later...
I am currently using a G550 2958 Model Laptop, from the Lenvo 3000/Essentials Notebook Series. This laptop came with a feature called OneKey Recovery, which I have used to create recovery disks for my computer, using 2 DVDs. My problem is this: I wish to install a Linux operating system on my computer, but Lenovo filled the partition table. Here is a summary of the partition configuration:
First Partition, Unnamed, Primary, NTFS, 200-300 MB, boot flag, houses Master Boot Record
Second Partition, "C", "C:", and/or "OS Drive" (running Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit Service Pack 1), Primary, NTFS, approximately 187 GB, contains Windows installation and personal files.
Third Partition, Unnamed, Extended, NTFS, approx. 30 GB, is a container for:
Logical Partition: "Lenovo", Logical, NTFS, approx. 30 GB, lba flag (which I take to mean it's bootable), contatins data and drivers necesarry for operating the OneKey Recovery System in respect to creating images and usage of the NOVO button.
Fourth and final Partition, "LENOVO_PART", Primary, NTFS, 13-17 GB, hidden service partition used for OneKey Recovery.
My question is this: I'm aware of the fact the OneKey Recovery will cease to function if I resize or delete any partitions in that I will not be able to create backup images or recovery disks, but since I have already done so and have no further need of OneKey, will booting the recovery disks automatically restore OneKey functionality after deletion or resizing of recovery partitions? In essence, will disabling the OneKey system through partition management permanently remove my ability to use recovery disks, or no?
I have checked the BIOS settings. Intel Hyper-Thread technology is checked as enabled. When I try to turn on Hyper-V Platform in Control Panel, I am told that Virtualization support is disabled in firmware. I see nothing else in the BIOS menu to turn on. What am I missing?
I have a brand new z510 notebook, and I need to do a clean install of windows 8.1. Problem is that I can't seem to boot from CD or USB. I have entered the bios, and although the DVD rom drive works, and it shown correctly in BIOS, it does NOT allow me to add it to the boot list. Also, there is an option called 'Boot From USB' I enable that, and still the USB boot does not show up in the boot list. The only thing I have in the boot list is the 'Windows Boot Manager' and it lists the name of my drive.
I thought that maybe secure boot was the issue, but I tried disabling this, and is still doesn't let me do what I want. I just paid $800 for a top of the line laptop, and I can't even boot from a cdrom. Every computer I have had since the 1980s have allowed me to do just that without trouble.
I want to run a Virtual PC . After googling I got some instruction. Some of the people suggest to change in bios. They suggested go to Bios-> Security -> System Security -> Enable virtual. But when I tried that. I didn't find the system security under Security. what should I do? How can I enable virtualization in my pc?
i'm using lenovo notebook 3000 G430 and i've install windows 7. it seems my notebook cannot enable the wireless lan. i've turn the switch on but cannot press the function key (FN+F5). i've install all the vista driver in the CD but to no avail.
On my X1 Carbon, I had to move from Win 8.1 pro to 8.1 Ent. I did a fresh install from scratch to only install what I need.During my setup, I had to disable Secure boot, to boot on a USB Key, install 8.1 Enterprise. Now that everything is working, I would like to re-enable the secure boot option.
If I don't it directly in the BIOS, the laptop doesn't book any more.Do I have to import key from my 8.1 Ent to the Bios or something like this?
How do I go about installing Bluetooth on my X31 2673? I plan on getting a Bluetooth speaker to sync with it. I don't have Bluetooth installed on the X31, I will need to upgrade. Are the Bluetooth parts difficult to find for an older X31 2673? Is it worth the cost? Or should I just buy a identical X31 with Bluetooth?
I'm trying to have simultaneous sound from both the headphone jack as well as the internal speakers. I've enabled the concurrent audio via the Smart Audio panel (Audio Director), tried the blue and red buttons (got successful results), but all of the computer sounds still come from the headphone jack.
I've just added an m-sata drive and installed my windows 8.1 there.After that i can't switch my wifi on!The option is grey and i can't switch it on!
1.re-istalling the wifi driver, nothing happend, 2.install an older version (6.0.2) of energy management, nothing happend 3.putting back my old drive (with my previously working fine windows), nothing changed 4. bios reset, and again nothing happend!
I bought a new G510 Lenovo Laptop but I cant quite use the dedicated amd vga. Everytime I install the given amd drivers from lenovo's official page and I check the Device Manager in windows 8 I see that the only enabled graphic card is the integrated Intel HD 4600. I tried to install the Intel drivers first but I get a error message that says that the computer does not meet the minimum requierments for installing that software.
i just bought G40-70 using Windows 7 (32bit) a week ago. the wifi was working fine and then suddenly it stop working at all. Troubleshooting said it is turned off and must be turn on manually (by hardware switch or software/hotkey) There are neither of them available in G40-70 Tried the solutions at [URL]
I have Lenovo G505 (59-380146) (APU Quad Core A10-5750 2.5 Ghz/ 6GB Ram) Windows 7 x64. Upgraded my HDD to SSD (Sandisk SDSSDHP256G FW:X2316RL).
System become rapid speed, windows boots in 8-10secs, HD tune transfer rate is between 357.3 and 409.6 MB/sec, simply everything just went perfect except Internet speed... With old HDD it used to be around 36-40Mbps, with SSD its now only around 11-13Mbps... My wireless card is Atheros AR956x. Drivers are up to date and downloaded from Lenovo support website. Tried old HDD - wifi works perfect.
i had purchased a Lenovo y500 about a month back. I have WiFi issues when i put the laptop on sandby and then start up.When the laptop starts after stand by it sometimes shows no networks available which usually gets solved after turning wifi on and off or turnig airplane mode on and off.
although sometimes it will show the wifi network but will be unable to connect and sometimes will connect and drop within a few mins after which it wont show any networks. these issues are more frequent when on battery than charging.
I have unticked the "turn off to save power" option in the network adapter setting.happens with Bluetooth turned off also drivers are updated to latest my newtwork card is Qualcomm Atheros AR9485WB-EG (driver version : 10.0.0.227)(date:20-02-2013) in advanced settings there is
option ................................................................................value 1.) 802.11b Preamble ........................................................ long and short/long only (currently on long and short) 2.) adhoc11n........................................................................disable/enable (currently disabled) 3.)network address............................................................. not present 4.)recieve buffers.................................................................256 5.)scan valid interval...........................................................60 6.)transmit bufffers..............................................................512
I am having trouble with my wifi and bluetooth not working, it is (off) and is greyed out in the metro interface, so i can not turn it back on, i checked networking centre and it is enabled, i have tried to reformat the computer using lenovo "one key" and the problem is still there, i tried updating the driver but no joy, and i can find one by searching, I dont want to have to send this back as faulty to "john lewis" also the trouble shooter says the HW switch is not enabled, i have tried the airplane button, but it does not make any diference, there are no other buttons or switches to turn on bluetooth or wifi so i'm stumped.
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 to reisntall the factory default software to original. The problem is the Wifi and bluetooth drivers do not install. I tried installing several versions from the lenovo download site but i either get "No Matched Wireless or nothing depending on which one I try to install.
The Laptop is a Lenovo B570, Model Name 1068. Running Windows 7 64 bit.
