IdeaPad z580 Freezing Issue

Hi Guys,


I bought this laptop 2 months ago and i replaced the HDD to SSD and when windows 8 came out i upgraded my OS.


Before all that i had an issue with windows 7 when i turn on my laptop and during the booting the trackpad freezing when the OS asking for password and i see automatic typing ********************************************* in the password column after sec's stop when i press ESC.


I upgraded to windows 8 still do the same even when i open internet explorer or any thing start typing dots .................................................... automatic and the trackpad freezing.


This issue happen randomly but is so annoying, i called CS they told my login as safe mode and nothing happen so they told me that issue is software related but even i restore my os and even i did new install then upgrade to windows 8 and no luck.


Anybody had this issue before?

Re: IdeaPad z580 Freezing Issue



Welcome To Lenovo Community


We are really sorry to hear about the issue you were facing,  


Since you are not get the same behavior in  safe-boot Windows ,  it's likely a corrupt driver or driver conflict. You might also want to try booting a Linux Live cd. if you get normal behavior, that would likely rule out a true hardware fault and put it back on Windows or drivers .

Also try disabling the trackpad and check

Also try uninstalling the touchpad driver. Then after rebooting go to and downloaded " Windows XP/Vista and Win7 64-bit Edition v15.2.20"

Do give this a try and let us know the results




Hope This Helps

Re: IdeaPad z580 Freezing Issue

I have this issue too with Windows 7 though.  Everything will freeze up for like 10 seconds and then I get one short beep.  Don't know which driver is causing this, but Lenovo needs to update their drivers for this laptop model.  They look real outdated, being that this is a pretty new model.
