Z570 WIFI

Hi

 

I recently bought a Lenovo IdeaPad Z570:

  • S/N:*******
  • Specs: i7, 6gb ram, 750 hd

 I delete all partitions and installed Windows 7 Professional (I need it for domains), but I have problems with my WIFI. I already do the nexts steps:

But anything works, I see this posts: http://forums.lenovo.com/t5/IdeaPad-Y-U-V-and-Z-series/many-Z570-problems/m-p/481043 

 

The conclusion is: If I press F12 in the boot process and select DVD boot, the WIFI works. 

 

Could anybody help ? I see a lot of problems with WIFI in the forums in Z570, but this is very rare.

hi agsmzt
can you check if it works on safe mode with networking?

Hi yigit

 

Same result, if I press only F8 and select "safe mode with networking" the WIFI doesn't work, but if I press F12 and then F8 and select again "safe mode with networking" the WIFI works perfect.

 

Thank you for your interest.

Re: Z570 WIFI

to be honest, it's really weird and unique problem and i don't know what to say.

can you try to remove/replace the wireless card? after removal, please, start up your computer and un-install the current drivers. then shutdown your computer, replace the wireless device, let windows install the drivers automatically.

Re: Z570 WIFI

Thanks a lot, yigit

 

Don't worry, I went to GBM (There is no Lenovo here in Panama, so Lenovo has an alliance with IBM for support), and leave my laptop last monday.

 

They request to Lenovo a new Wireless card, in fifteen days I leave my laptop again for tests. 

 

I think it's a very weird problem too, they also think that maybe it's a software problem, but I don't think so because the wireless works fine (only if a press the F12 key and select DVD).

 

Thanks again, when I have an "official answer" I'll post here.
