Lenovo g 580 boot menu not working when pressing f2 and f12 key

I bought new lenovo g580 series laptop. After installation of windows 7 ultimate x64 bit edition, A problem get arrived when lenovo driver cd get installed. When I installed intel hd 3000 graphics driver and restart laptop. Then window was unable to start normally, it shown error - so windows automatically startup recovery program started (which was recommended). But this program failed in resoloving problem.. And by opening windows normally the blue screen fatal error was coming. 

 

so I need to install window again. But after restarting window, the boot menu was not coming through pressing f12 key. F2 key was also not working. after suggestion of lenovo techincal assitance expert, they suggested me to remove battery and charger and press start key for 30 seconds. 

 

         But it did not work for me. And My problem is still remain same. And I am  unable to access boot menu. 

 

please help me to resolve problem. The bios version is - 62cn34ww. lenovo website did not provide the bios update and bios diagnostic utility tool.

Hi

 

Welcome To Lenovo Community

 

Please try removing the hard disk , then try using F2 button to enter bios .

If you are successful in entering the bios, Load set up defaults.

Connect the Hard drive back and check by pressing F2 to enter Bios

 

If above steps didn't fix the issue , please visit nearest service center to have system tested

 

Hope This Helps

Re: Lenovo g 580 boot menu not working when pressing f2 and f12 key

Hello,

 

I have the same problems but after installing Ubuntu and deleting windows 7 partitions.

B key not working (is bringing up the boot menu), F2 for accessing the BIOS not working, only F12.

You have to make available a BIOS update - my problem is that Windows 7 was installed using BIOS and Ubuntu was installed using EFI.

I have a G580 but if you're not coming up with a BIOS fix, I will replaced very soon.

Regard,

D

I had the same problem with my new G580. I found that I could get the boot menu most of the time by pressing F12 very, very rapidly and the same was true for F2 and the setup menu. I have read that the rapid booting of UEFI is the cause.

Re: Lenovo G 580 boot menu not working when pressing f2 and f12 key

I faced the same problem and i solved it just right now after looking for solutions in this forum. In my case when I removed the battery and and pressed the start button for 10 to 12 sec (it should be pressed for 30 sec) the bios worked. But this time i booted it with ubantu. I then again repeated with win 7 ultimate and now i am installing win as normal.
