Lenovo IdeaPad S110 U/S Series :: Install Windows 7 - No CD / DVD Driver Found
Feb 20, 2014
I just bought Lenovo Ideapad S110 netbook. It already has MeeGoo OS installed but I want to install Windows 7 32 bit. So I made a bootable usb using Windows 7 USB DVD Download Tool and tried to install Windows 7 using my usb. However I have an error "No CD/DVD driver found" I have tried all three usb slots but there still is that problem. All three slots are USB 2.0.
I have just purchased my lenovo ideapad s110 and installed windows 7 on it. Sales agent informed me that it should have a built-in camera with it.
To my surprise, i don't see a link for camera driver on it for windows 7. I tried to access the camera using yahoo messenger or skype but it did not detect it. is there something wrong with my unit? or the model doesn't come with a camera itself?
Okay so my system blue screened and so I am attempting to reinstall windoes 7 tho In bios it appears there is no HDD only my small 32 gig sdd appears. When I try to search for the device driver ill also mention that it says drive C is not formatted, Anyways, how do I install device driver to reformat harddrive so that I may reinstall windows7? Have I gotten some kind of virus? I use avast and did not notice any trouble until blue screen.
I have an IdeaPad V570 that experienced a total hard drive failure (be careful how hard to close the laptop in frustration) I had Best Buy try to recover data and opted not to pay for the recovery after the only crucial data did not seem to have been recovered. Best Buy told me the rest of the system seems to be intact so they could install a new Hard Drive if I wanted it back. They made me offers to completely restore the system at a price but I decided to save money thinking I should be able to restore the system myself. So they installed the hard drive and that was it.
I decided to go with Windows 8 after learning that support was beginning to wain for Windows 7. I purchased the OS from Best Buy and I am attempting to install it. So far that is not going well. The BIOS sees the CDDVDW drive and the HDD, both are listed in the BOOT menu with the right names. However the computer is not booting from the WIndows disk. I get a message ending with :
PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable PXE-M0F: Exiting PXE ROM
At which point it take me to the Boot Menu. I can see the order I have set for Booting is:
It seems to me that the system is trying to boot in that order but the CDDVD drive is not responding, the HDD has nothing on it so it goes for the PCI LAN and there is nothing for it to do so it returns the error an sends me back to the Boot Menu.
I have been struggling with installing w8 on my Ideapad z510 laptop in UEFI mode, but neither I could succeed it nor I could I find something that might work. I will clearly explain the case.
Point 1: As I understood, to succeed w8 install in UEFI format, one needs to choose "UEFI First" mode from Boot Menu in BIOS. Then, the source of the boot needs to be specified to identify the rigid path to the documents to load so that new OS could be installed correctly.
Problem1: It is possible to chose UEFI First from boot mode, but it's not possible to choose the USB path for UEFI booting in this case, which doesn't allow you to succeed a UEFI boot to your computer. You can't reach the DVD or USB, where the installation files are, and start installation process.
Point2: Considering the first case, you need to choose Legacy Support mode to boot your computer and reach USB disk or DVD to install new OS on the computer.
Problem2: To succeed UEFI mode booting to the computer, you need to see 4 different partitions on your disk at point of disk selection, where you choose the disk you'll install your OS. However, when you select the Legacy Support mode from BIOS, the disk partition is limited to 2 in my case, which are:
Primary diskSystem reserved (350 MB)Hence, when I continue with the installation, the OS is installed on Legacy mode. After installation, when I go to BIOS to choose UEFI mode for boot mode, the laptop checks some connections from network and says
EFI network 0 for IPv4 failedEFI network 0 for IPv6 failed respectively.
PS: Please don't tell that "you can't install, because your computer doesn't support", because I received the computer from technical service and a version of W8 was installed on it in UEFI mode. However I deleted it to install W8 pro.
I bought this laptop for my son to use and like many, he didn't care for Windows 8. So, I downloaded the drivers for the laptop and then did a clean install of Windows 7 Professional. I have been unable to find a driver that will work for the Network Controller. The drivers you can download on the Lenovo site do not work. This computer is useless to him unless we can get the wireless working.
I cannot get any audio from my IdeaPad. When I randomly select a mp3 and try to play it with Windows Media Player, I immediately get a mesage that the sound device can't be found or is busy (or something to that effect). I also don't hear sound from internet videos or system sounds such as the start up song. The sound is not muted and volume is at 100%.
I have uninstalled the device drivers for both the Connexant audio and microphone, reloaded them, and rebooted. Same problem.
My question, of course, is: restoring sound from my computer short of a system reset?
I have a problem with driver installation on my G510 notebook with Windows 7. I've installed all drivers, and only two had left: "Unknown Device" and "PCI Simple Communications Device". After installing the Intel Power Management Engine, the "Unknown Device" had disappear (installed successful), but second one is still not installed. VendorID (8086) and DeviceID (8C3A) suggests, that this is Intel Power Management, but this driver is already installed.
I tried to install different versions of this driver (even for Win8), but nothing changed.
I am not able to install the Wide Wireless Lan Driver64 in my Lenovo B460 laptop which is running with Win 7 64 bit ultimate version.When i installed the avialable drivers fro lenovo site,it showed No matched driver error showing.
Whenever I try to install the ELAN/Synaptics driver that I download from my laptop's support page I get an error saying: no Appropriate Driver to be installed.I'm on Windows 7 64bit...I've tried tons of drivers and I'm starting to get seriously annoyed. Non of them work all of them throw error messages and I'm getting more and more irritated with the obnoxious tap to click functionality. I don't even need the driver as I need the annoying tap to click disabled and maybe some kind of scrolling functionality would be nice if it's possible.
I was trying to watch a DVD on my laptop and kept receiving an error from PowerDVD 10, saying that it was an invalid media type. After looking online, I noticed that some people said that the update might fix this. So, I downloaded the update and ran the installer. It required that I remove the current installed version of PowerDVD in order to install the patch. After the installer wiped that from my computer and began to install the patch, I received a message stating that "This software can only be installed on a Lenovo system." This was a patch file that the program sent me to, called "PowerDVD_v5630_RiTA10(Lenovo)(PDVDServDelayStartup)_DVD130802-14.exe"
After looking at this, I went through the knowledge base and found that there is another file linked for updating the PowerDvd software called "Lenovo.Lenovo_RiTA10_v_DVD110707-07.exe". When I tried to run this I get the following error:
"Cannot install the patch. Either this patch is not intended for your version of PowerDVD 10 or your system does not have a previous version of PowerDVD 10 installed. The patch installation will abort."
Of course I don't have any previous version of PowerDVD 10 installed, because the other patch uninstalled it in order to install. Now I am stuck without the DVD software in this terrible Windows 8 environment. I even tried VLC player and the video is cut off. This is very frustrating. This is on my IdeaPad Y580.
While trying to install Intel Rapid Storage Technology(IRST) Driver on my Lenovo G560 Windows 7 64bit OS it is not able to install and gives me some error regarding hardware not match or etc. error then i came to know that to install AHCI driver i have to change in BIOS Sata controller mode from 'Compatible' to 'AHCI' i tried so and then restart the system but it gives BLUE SCREEN error while windows startup logo and restart again, any solution to use Rapid Storage Technology on G560 and actually this driver was installed when i purchased the new laptop but after certain format and fresh windows installation its no more able to install, how to install it back..........
My specifications: Intel Core i7 -3630QM 2.4 GHz Windows 8 x64 8 GB RAM Intel HD Graphics 4000 (integrated) NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660m - not overclocked, (current driver: 327.23)
So the problem is that every time I try to play a 3D-dense game, after around 5 minutes of playing, the game freezes, then the screen goes black and the only thing I can do is to close it (though the problem appears to vary depending on game I'm playing). After ~3 seconds I was forced to close it, the message appears: "Display driver has stopped working and has successfully recovered" + something about NVidia Kernel Driver.
The interesting thing is that a game still "runs" despite showing the blackscreen (e.g. I can hear sounds of scrolling through game menu or other in-game noises/music). Mybe it has something to do with DirectX?
Like I said, the problem may vary depending on game, in most cases I have to do the things I wrote above, but here are the exceptions:
Skyrim: the least problematic - after the blackscreen I can Alt-TAB and return to the normal game (though the game tends to have a bit too rough camera moving after that) Mass Effect 3: the most problematic - my computer auto-restarts just a moment after the game freezes, and I have to wait for some recovery or something.
I tried to solve that problem in such ways: -clean install" of the most recent nVidia drivers (including BETA ones) and Intel drivers (for integrated GPU - just in case...) -adding Tdr -Delay registry key (one of the official solutions of that problem for Windows Vista/Seven users) -lowering by 1 MHz core clock and memory clock (by MSI Afterburner) while playing games -changing power management from Adaptive to Maximum Performance in nVidia control panel -changing Main PhysX Processor from Auto to GTX 660M (by nVidia control panel)setting Power Throttle On by nVidia Inspector - Profile Settings -running games in windowed mode
1, 4, and 5'th solution didn't work for me 3'rd one seems to be useful a bit 6'th - I believe it worked alot in prolonging time before crash 2'nd and 7'th - I'm still not sure about them
My ideapad S210 (with Window 8.1/64) can not recognize my usb connected memory stick or a portable DVD player. I have been trying for more than a day searching the web for a solution. All I got are all for window 7 fixes.
I have lenovo ThinkPad T540p. With Intel Core I7, 8gb RAM and 500gb HDD. I think my HDD is Toshiba. There was Windows 7 on it but it won't boot on it anymore. When I start Windows it shows 5 second black screen and then it shows Boot Menu. Well, I tried to reinstall Windows but when I have to select on which drive to install Windows I've got an error: "No drives were found". And the list with drives is empty, so I can't reinstall Windows. I updated BIOS but it didn't work. Finally, I formated my HDD and created two partitions on it. It worked, but not for a long time. I installed Windows 7. Everything was fine until I restarted my computer. And then I've got the same problem: "Can't boot from HDD" and it shows Boot Menu. Then I started Windows installation and I've got the same error: "No drives were found".
I don't understand what's going on with my HDD and what's destroying it's partitions.And I don't think that my HDD is broken.
I'm using Lenovo Ideapad P500 for 16 months now. Windows 8.1.I've had this message saying "display driver stopped responding and has recovered" while on startup on my notification area. It's been quite a some time I have seen this messsage during startups. And, my laptop seems more slow during startup. I've tried "sfc/scannow" but the system seems fine. I did Disk cleanup and optimization regularly. No third-party software installed.
My laptop heats up. Its working fine not too hot during Morning and Evening, but heats up high during day time. I'm not using laptop cooler now, but I've ordered one. My laptop is getting old.
I bought my laptop from france so windows is in french ... I installed language pack core of system is still in french. How could I install legit windows 8.1 on it that is in english.
Not now but near future I want to replace that slow hard disk that is in it from shop to faster SSD and then again I need to know how to get that windows there ... back in the days it was easy, you had that number and you had the disk how does it work now ?
About a year ago I bought a Lenovo IdeaPad Z580 with Windows 8 preinstalled. My question is this:
I want to upgrade my hardware by replacing my current hard disk with an Solid State Disk. The problem is that in windows 8 there is not any program except the OneKey Recovery which obviously it isn't a Microsoft's official recovery application (such as the one in Windows 7). If I create a disk with OneKey then is there any way to use it to install windows 8 on the new SSD disk? How the pc is gonna recognize a backup disk created by an application which is not installed on it?
i have a ideapad z570 running win 7. i want to use win 8 now, i want to erase the data from hidded partition, i want to edit the data in hidden partition such that, if One key is used later, it installs win 8. dont suggest visiting to lenovo service center.
I have bought a Lenovo Z50 70 laptop with free DOS. I have sucessfully installed Windows 8.1 in it. I want to install Fedora 20 alongside with windows 8.1. But I have failed to do this after trying so many times.
I have noticed the following things in my laptop 1. In windows 8.1 recovery option on menu is displaying for UEFI firmware setting. ( I have installed windows 8.1 in legacy support mode in BIOS) 2. In BIOS setup (tapping F2 at the time of booting) no "Secure Boot Option" is displaying.
I have a Y560 ideapad and the hard disk recently crashed, I did not have enough time to take a backup of my windows copy. I have purchased a new hard disk and installed a fresh copy of windows 7 on it, downloaded all the drivers from the lenovo support website but I really would like to have done the one key recovery on the new copy of windows to set it back to the factory settings.
I installed Windows 8 Enterprise 64-Bit Edition. I am facing is that I am not able to install the drivers for R5 M230 Graphics. I updated the BIOS, tried downloading latest drivers from AMD website too. Still, the system is just not recognising the hardware. It is showing up as Video Controller. But I am unable to install driver even after using driver update option.
