Re: Z580 Bios key ?

Hello and welcome,

 

The following is from the user's guide (v2 for Windows 8) page 29:  http://download.lenovo.com/consumer/mobiles_pub/ideapad_z380z480z485z580z585_ug_2nd_edition_jun_2012...

 

How can I start the BIOS setup utility?
To start the BIOS setup utility:
1 Shut down the computer.
2 Press the Novo button and then select BIOS Setup.

 

Does that work for you?

Re: Z580 Bios key ?

few ways to access to bios in z580

1-easy way is using nova button check out the below pics

2- at the start up (booting) hold F2

3- if computer can boot ok , hold shift  and restart the computer

if none of them would works (which did not for me) there is chance the corrupted boot manger, a year a go there wasn't any bios update available for z580 i had to  send my laptop to lenovo, they changed the motherboard for me under warranty work , same thing happen again after a year   ,i tried all the tricks but no luck ( that mean if hard drive dies you have to  find another lenovo laptop to clone the drive ,because laptop wont boot from anything except internal hard drive ) the good thing there is bios update which helped me to fix the my bios access problem .

Re: Z580 Bios key ?

And what do you do when the NOVO key doesn't do anything?  Yes, it gets to the menu that should let you access the BIOS, but then it skips that and goes right to boot.  What do you do when your HDD fails and you need to boot from the DVD to re-install Windows, but Lenovo doesn't let you do that?  What do you do?  Dig a hole and scrap the computer? 

It would be really helpful if the forum moderator chimed in here with a solution.
