Lenovo G580 BIOS update

[ Edited ]

I Really frustrated from the lack support of the laptop G580, there is no support for windows 10, no drivers, no BIOS update, I keep trying to found solutions without any luck, recently I bought an Original Lenovo Battery but my laptop does not charging it and keep say unauthorized battery, i tried every solution in the world but none is worked, one solution leave it at the end is to update the Bios, currently i have 62CN40WW and the next version is 62cn97ww_64.exe but lot of peoples having bugs and problems with this new version without any solution, also there is no version for windows 10, so i can't take the rest damage my motherboard as I just changed it.

Re: Lenovo G580 BIOS update

Hi Abdelfattahben,

 

Thanks for posting!

 

Ah, I understand the frustration as I had the same unit. It might also be worth restoring back to Windows 8/8.1, perform all the updates (and see if the battery is then recognised) and then upgrade back Windows 10 - I understand this would be a long process, but it may help.

 

Let us know how you get on!

Re: Lenovo G580 BIOS update

Thank you Ryan-X for your answer,
My fear is the issues that is coming with the update of the BIOS to version 62cn97ww , lot of posts talking about those issues and no one found a solution to fix it or to back to the old version, the only solution is the buy a new motherboard, its only 2 months when i bought a new motherboard as the preview one is just died (motherboard lifetime ended).
