Re: Lenovo G580 do not booting

Remove battery and AC power from notebook then press and hold the power button down for more than 30 seconds. Once completed, replace battery and AC power then use "Lenovo" button to start computer. Select BIOS from list of options and run diagnostics test on the hard drive.

Also - if you replaced the hard drive without cloning it to the SSD you will need a retail OS install disk to load onto the SSD or HDD you are using.

Optionally you can try recovery media if it still is available from Lenovo Support.

Good luck.

Re: Lenovo G580 do not booting

If you removed the CMOS battery it may have damaged the system main board, especially if it was soldered in place.  Desoldering can damage sensitive components and without out that battery the system will not boot correctly.

Re: Lenovo G580 do not booting

CMOS battery is easy accesible under the lid and battery is removable. CR2032 battery. If lenovo designed this PC to destroy itself by removing this battery.... I did it at many PCs and it just set up bios to default.

Re: Lenovo G580 do not booting

Good to hear that the CMOS was in a socket rather than hard soldered to motherboard.  There are a few too many different motherboards used for options to be 100% on that, is why I was rather generic with response.

 

Have you tried using a second monitor on the external port of the notebook?  It may be that the LCD cable went bad or was disconnected at one end...  If the external shows content, then examine the internal LCD cable.

 

Lastly - have you attempted to boot the notebook using the Lenovo Button instead of the power button?  Lenovo Button is next to and smaller than the power button.  I use a soft point stylus to depress the one on my G580, and that boots it into a small menu with choices for recovery and BIOS.

I have tried all common methods to diagnose. It was so quick, I don't believe somethink can broken. It is 100% BIOS issue. All went wrong after BIOS battery was removed. Laptop has W10 upgrade. When I push restore button it start up but turn off after while. Maybe it don not work with upgraded Windows. We made restore DVD before disk replacemet, but when screen is still black we can not do anything. I tried re-flash BIOSvia usb , but methods I google for, doesn't work. I don't know even if it use Phoenix or InsydeH2O Bios

Re: Lenovo G580 do not booting

My G580 uses the InsydeH20 bios flash utility, but yours appears to be different, I do not have CMOS battery in socket on motherboard, at least not where yours is...

Have you contacted Lenovo Support by phone? Provide them with serial number (do not post in forum) and they should be able to inform you of the particulars for your system.

Good luck.
