Hi, I had this problem also and I don't know why, but Lenovo Ideapad Z500 seems to have some compatibilities issues with a new Intel video card.
So, what you need to do is rolling back the HD intel video card driver to the previous version OR go to the following path: D:\drivers\VGA\Intel\x64\9.17.10 and press Setup to install the old driver again.
That solved my problem. It's a shame that I can't upload this driver in my laptop.

    Thank you so much! I had the same issue with my Lenovo IdeaPad P400 Touch, and this simple fix totally cured it. Last time this happened, I took it back to Best Buy's Geek Squad (like an idiot) and they kept my computer for a week, ended up wiping it out and reinstalling everything from scratch. Obviously, that didn't even fix it because I had the problem again. So thankful for your advice (and never going back to Geek Squad!)

Hi! I've got the same issue, but I downloaded drivers from lenovo site. That solved the issue for some time. I needed to reinstall win 8.1, then this problem occured again. but drivers are fresh, so no solution found here... The only thing helps me in this situation is I just restart the laptop and press F2 to get to BIOS setup or F12 to get to startup menu, then I use brightness control to make screen brighter. then I continue computer's startup, windows (or other OS) starts and I have normal brightness. Will inform you more, when I solve the issue))) Bye.

If the docking station charging doesn't work either and your battery is ok you have lost voltage regulator (it prevents overcharging of battery) Take the battery to a battery plus store and they can check it..

SOURCE: I have a Lenovo Y430 notebook and it was working

After making sure that the status of network adapters in the device manager showed enabled, I tried using the Fn+F5 key on my keypad. The Fn+F5 key showed my WiFi status as disabled inspite of the Wifi toggle switch on the front of the laptop in the "on" position. So I enabled it and the WiFi led started glowing and I was able to access the internet through WiFi connection

Automatic updates/ network adaptor goes missing / magically returns after system restore


Where is the Network Adapter originating from? Windows? If the Update is a Windows update, Hide the update. It may be an error, it's happen to me on a HP Network Adapter, When I installed it the Ethernet Adapter would not work, I rolled-back the driver on the Ethernet Adapter and it worked perfectly. I "Hide" the Windows update in Windows Updates.

My CD drive doesn't work


Your display adapter is the component of your computer that allows your monitor to work. On the operating system side of things, this display adapter is controlled by a device driver. If you're having issues with your display adapter (like colors are displaying incorrectly or the screen is flickering), you can fix these problems by rolling back your device driver using the Windows Device Manager.

Open your Control Panel by clicking "Start" and then "Control Panel." Click "System." Click "Device Manager." Scroll down to the "Display Adapter" heading. On a single monitor setup, there will only be one device listed under "Display" adapter. Right-click it and click "Properties." Click the "Driver" tab. Click the "Roll Back Driver" button. This will uninstall your current display adapter driver and reinstall the last version that worked properly. This will fix the issues you were having with the device. Hope this helps

Why Thinkpad T23 2647 4MP can't conect net after installed windows XP?


I do not use an automatic driver detection program, because they have a tendency to install the wrong drivers.

I look in Device Manager, and use the driver that matches THAT device, the O/S used, and is the newest version, (Date), with all the bugs worked out from an older version.

For your laptop that would be;

Ethernet Driver for Intel PRO/100 VE LAN that is the 49675 version, and has the date of November 8, 2002,

Hi, My Lenovo Z560 laptop has two problems. First the mute touch key is always on, though it is functioning like mute and unmute on touch nut LED is always on and the second touch key i.e. Smart fan noise...


Welcome to FixYa


The softkey buttons on your system is controlled by the lenovo energy management driver software. Try reinstalling this. You can download it here

www.consumersupport.lenovo.com


Enter the serial number of your computer which is located on the bottom of the system. Look for the S/N number on a white sticker. Dowload and install lenovo energy management. Restart the system and check if that fixes the issue
