Thanks for Posting!
Were you able to check your touchpad settings before the upgrade if you have Synaptics or Elan touchpad?
As per the Support download site, G580 could have either Synaptics or Elan
Elan touchpad, as per support site does not have a driver yet for windows 8.1 and still runs with the Windows 8.1 generic driver

Thank you, I was distracted,
Synaptics remembered, but Elan. Elan is now installed , it works.
I have one more question, w8 function normally in wifi, now I upgraded w8.1.
The wifi is connected, but sometimes can not open Web pages.
Wifi shows connected to, but still find no internet.
In this case, wi-fi off and on internet works for a while.
Then again this mistake.
My Lenovo G580 20150 (this is the bottom of the machine) looked under S / N, it describes the 2189-N/A (Warranty end date: 2014-12-25)
Which is correct?
What wifi driver should not be a problem?
We have seen in other forums also problems faced during w8.1.
I hope you understand my English

If you haven't installed any Wifi driver yet then your system might be running with a generic one,
Lenovo already have drivers available for windows 8.1, but it is in multiple models
We need to identify first what is the model of your wifi,
Here's is how we can check it
Open your Device Manager
Press winodws + X and choose device manager
On device manager look for Network adapters
and open it, you will find your wifi there, It may say wifi or wireless.
If it say what model it is then good. just go to this link
And modify the filter like this
And it should show all Windows 8.1 drivers or Different Wifi models, Download the one same to your wifi model.
Ignore any warranty you may find on the system or on the Website,
If you purchased the unit Brand new then The day you purchased it is the Warranty Start Date, 1 yr warranty is the basic.
Just Make sure you have the reciept as your Proof of purchase.
