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 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.
I bought a U410 knowing it didn't have bluetooth, at the time I thought I wouldn't need it. But now I would like to have it. Is it possible to upgrade the Centrino Wireless-N 2200 card, to a card that includes bluetooth?
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.
I have a x201 cto using 64bits Win 7. The wireless adapter is intel advanced-N 6200. However, I found my wireless always turn off suddenly and I can not turn it on anymore (even using Fn+F5) until reboot.
Is there a way to turn on or off the wireless/bluetooth radio when the T420 is docked and using an external keyboard? I don't want to open the lid on the T420 every time to use the Fn+F5 keys when docked.
i like having my m1530 on my lap (unplugged) in the living room while i watch tv/babysit so far i can only make it last 2 hours at the most(surfing the web,messengers) with the brightness 30% and powersaver mode.
well i was reading on the thread on how to underclock your cpu...theres a problem with that:
-numero first im too lazy (hurts my head when i try to understand the thread,hence the "[ADVANCE]" on the title ^^")
-numero dos having a t5450 on power saver mode (50% max perfomance) is slow enough... so i tried to look for a better solution and found this...
i think its great...my battery up to 2 hours and 20-ish minutes.
I have Acer 6935 (P8400, GF9600 512 DDR3, 4 GB RAM DDR3) and use Vista 64 bit. Today I have noticed a strange behavior of my laptop when the battery is used (power save scheme is on).
On the beginning, the battery is fully charged. I start listening music or watching a movie, it does not matter. It takes about 1 hour, for example.
The battery is about 50-60% full (1h 30 min left) and suddenly the laptop goes to standby. When I turn it on, turns out that only 9% of the battery left. The wireless and the Bluetooth are off. I use Vista 64 bit.
The laptop is only 6 months and the battery has not been hard used.
1. When I plug charger in to my SL510 lights don't turn on. If battery are take out - laptop is impossible to turn on; 2. If I plug same charger to my second (old r60 thinkpad - lights is turning on and all boots normally); 3. I take charge from my second laptop and test on SL510 - lights still not turning on; 4. If I try to boot without charger (on battery) laptop is working fine.
Is it possible that - when my battery be empty I can never turn on my laptop?
i've got a Lenovo G580 which I've had a for a little while now. It was working OK on Saturday but I tried it this morning but it wont turn on. I've tried a different power supply and I've tried it with and without the battery. When I plug the charger in the the batter light comes on but when I press the power button nothing happens.
How do i turn SLI mode on my dual graphics GT750M on the Y510p laptop. GPU-Z says SLI is disabled. Can't seem to find a place to turn it on Nvidia control panel either. Device Manager does show 2 GT750m working right.
I bought a y510p ideapad from newegg a couple days ago and recently got it. i've been trying to set it up and all that, trying to get rid of the programs that came preloaded with the laptop because I wouldn't think i'd need them. I then shut it, put it down and opened it again and now it won't turn on. It seems like both the power indicator and the battery indicator light are both on, as well as the power button light, but the monitor itself is blank and i can't hear the computer being on. I've tried holding down the power button and resetting it, as well as removing the battery and using only the AC to see if it would turn on but to no avail. I'm worried i might have deleted something important, but I was mostly deleting programs related to shoddy media players and other services of the like. It's pretty upsetting I just got this laptop and it's already died on me!
I would like to ask about the Lenovo Energy Management software bundled with my Z400. Regarding the Energy Management > Battery > "Optimized Battery Health" in particular. When the battery charges until 60%, does it internally disconnect the charger from my battery? The Power icon in the System Tray says "Plugged in, not charging". Or does the software stops the charging until 60%, and when it lowers the software allows it to recharge again? I'm worried about getting my battery worn out immediately, as I leave my charger plugged in most of the time.
My 2 day old Lenovo Y510P laptop has a problem with charging. I noticed the battery was never going above 60% charged. I left it plugged in for over 24 hours and nothing changed. So I decided to completely drain the battery and used the laptop until it died. With the laptop off I left it plugged in until the battery LED turned white which indicates the battery is fully charged. Unfortunately the battery still shows 60% charged.
I bought my Lenovo Y40 on the Lenovo Web site a couple months ago and recently, to turn on, I have to press the power button twice. When I press just once, the Lenovo`s logo is displayed on the screen, but after 2 seconds everything turns off. On the second trying, finally the laptop turns on and the windows is started.
In addition, rarely the laptop stucks on the lenovo`s logo screen, being necessary to hold on the power to reset it.
I recently purchased a Lenovo X1 carbon, the weird thing is that the computer functions correctly when the power cord is plugged but when the power cord is unplugged the computer DOES NOT turn off no matter what you do. It restarts all the time. If you plug the power cord you can turn off your computer, but when you unplug it it starts working immediately?
In any case pushed the reset button on the back of the laptop but it didn't worked.
I've used my x100e today to take a measurement via LAN-port with a camera. I left the room to do some other staff and when I cam back the screen was filled with a horizontal black-darkgrey line pattern. I switched the x100e off by holding the power button for 4 seconds.
If i switch it on again, the power light shines, the fan is blowing and the hard disk is spinning, but the screen stays dark and there's no power beep or something like that. I also tried another power pack and with the battery inserted, it's always the same problem.
Seems like this problem already appeared. So what can I do? Approximately how much would the repair be?

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'm trying to install a Medialink Bluetooth on a Lenovo B560 running Windows 7 but nothing seems to "take." No Bluetooth devices are detected. Got a factory replacement dongle, tried installing the Broadcom software several times (from disk and a link), most recently today (1-2-14). I tried the 0pbl08ww.exe fix but without success: message was "no appropriate driver to be installed." My phone detects the speaker device I want to use (Creative 100), so that's not the problem.
I've have had a Lenovo g500s running windows 8.1 for almost a year and never had an major issue. But recently I have found that it will not turn on. I have found that by taking out and putting the battery back in will rarely result in the battery light blinking in red. If i try to turn it on at this point it will turn for a few second "prepare for automatic repairs" and then in a few seconds turn back off its original turned off state. I have tried "Flee-Power" while calling technical support and it made a small noise and then issued a burning smell. It's 1 year warranty is still valid.
I usually just leave my laptop on overnight, and it just goes to sleep/hibernation mode then. But when i went to go turn on my laptop, you can see the lights on my laptop turn on but the screen stayed black.
What could have possibly happened?/what can i do to fix it
