Lenovo G580 20157 Bios Problem

Hello.

I have the notebook Lenovo Ideapad G580 model 20157.
After Linux Mint 15 installation I have the following problem:
I can't enter to the BIOS/UEFI setup. When the laptop is loaded
in the initial screen says "Press F2 to enter Setup, F12 to enter Multiboot menu".
But when I press F2 nothing happens, loading goes on. When I press F12,
boot menu looks like:

1. linuxmint
2. PCI LAN: Atheros Boot Agent
3. ATAPI CD: .....
4. HDD ....

How can I get to the BIOS settings and Where download original BIOS version 62CN41WW?

Hi berserk9999,

 

Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!

 

I’m sorry to hear that your G580 Laptop is not entering the BIOS menu, and the BIOS can also be entered by pressing the OKR (One Key Recovery) button just beside the Power button and select advanced setup in the menu to enter BIOS.

 

Hope this helps!!!

 

Do post us back for further queries.

 

Best Regards

Shiva Kumar

Re: Lenovo G580 20157 Bios Problem

Excuse me. All your "solutions" are just NOT WORKING! I also formatted and installed Ubuntu. Now can't access to bios! Pressing F2 is simply not changing anything.    I also tried this "solution"    but again nothing changed! I found so many complaints about it on the internet and you really have no solution. I feel bad about buying your product.

I’m sorry to hear that the issue persists even after performing all the available troubleshooting steps, then as informed in “Diagnose & Fix detail” webpage the only available option is to re-flash the Bios. I would Strongly Suggest Calling Technical Support for Assistance to get the details of nearest Authorized Service Center to get the issue analyzed.

If your computer is asking for a password without a hard drive installed, there is a good chance that it is the BIOS / UEFI secure boot process that is causing this issue.  At this point I would reccomend contacting Lenovo support by phone to further troubleshoot your issue as it may require the notebook be diagnosed at a local service center.

 

Good luck!

I would suggest defaulting the BIOS by removing battery and AC power then holding down the power button for more than 30 seconds.  Once completed, reinstall battery and connect AC power then use OKR button to start the notebook.  When you are in BIOS / UEFI check your boot process and disable Secure Boot.

 

If notebook boots, and recognizes Windows installation media - there is an issue with the "keys" stored in UEFI boot sectors. 

 

Please post back with results.
