Lenovo 11e E/Edge :: Updated ThinkPad With Windows 8.1 - WiFi Doesn't Work
Aug 14, 2012
I updated my Thinkpad with windows 8.1. But the wifi driver doesn't work correctly. After the installation the device was diasabled with code 10. I searched for a new driver and found one from Realtek for win 8. After this installation and the reboot, the wifi works fine. Restarting the notebook again, the device was disabled again. I tried a lot of different drivers - it's always the same: After the first installation and reboot it works, after the second boot, the device is disabled again.
After I reinstalled windows 7 I can't recover factory settings and drivers (going threw F11 as mention in many support sites). Also I can't download Wifi (wirelees lan driver). It shows that it can't be done on this computer becouse it doens't support this operating system or that it doesn't have wife device at all. I downloaded Lan driver from support and it works, but its diffrent story with wifi. Driver genius can't find it either. Also tried using rescue and restore, but it doesn't find any back up's. Even do there still a partition LENOVO_RECOVERY. So I need to know that I am doing wrong, did installed wrong OS(even do I tried two diffrent setups) or I just do something wrong then I try to restore fatory settings or I just f.
I am experiencing issues with my touchpad on my Thinkpad Edge AMD with 4 GB Ram.
Sometimes the touchpad will work and sometimes it will not respond. When I restart the computer, it will work but not for long. I have the up-to-date drivers which came with the machine. I just received my machine 2 days ago.
I have recently purchased a Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E540, with Windows 7 installed. I'm trying to use the integrated camera with Skype, but I can record no picture. When I try to install the Integrated Camera Driver from Lenovo Support, [UR], the setup always fails with Engrish error messages.
I have bought my new E540 some days ago. My keyboard is Norwegian so there is a key called AltGr available which is used as a combinational key similar to shift. when I just press the key related to backslash ( it's '+') it works fine but when I want to type backslash (it's AltGr and '+' together) it does not work.
Overnight, my Z470's wifi stopped work. The switch nor FN seems to turn the wifi on again, but I dont think the device is damaged or something. I tried everything I could.
1) Update driver / Uninstall and update driver / delete and update driver 2) Try to work on WLAN in services.msc but I couldn't find it in there 3) Some people says that could be the power management, I'm still trying to find the compatible version.
So, what else can I do? I don't wanna to format my machine!
I have a new U530 I just bought. I need windows 7, so I did a downgrade. I downloaded all the Win7 drivers, and managed to make everything happy except no Wifi. The Win7 drivers on the support site don't have the the hardware ID for this wifi card. In windows 8 it shows Broadcom 802.11ac Network Adapter, with PCVEN)14E4&DEV_43B1&SUBSYS_062E17AA&REV_03, which does not show up in the .inf file for the drivers that install from the wl05w7.exe driver file. Also the setup quits without graceful finish, even if I right click and do run as administrator.
I purchased two of these laptops, but one needs to work with Win 7. I'm willing to switch out the wifi card if you have something that works with Win 7.
I bought 2 of these in oct 2011 for my twins going to college. My daughters has had no problems. The other one died in may 2012 and was repaired under warranty. It died again in November 2012. I was able to get it running by removing the battery and disconnecting the cmos battery and letting it sit for a while.
It happened again, and this time I can't revive it. I want to add that I think there was something wrong when we got it back from repair. The battery icon for the Lenovo power management did not work, but the windows one did. In hindsight I think this had something to do with nvram problem I have since heard so much about.
so basically I reinstalled windows 7 Home Premium x64 Operating System and it seems that some drivers are missing. I bought a new hard disk and 4 G of ram..I installed them and the laptop is HP Pavilion dv6-2137sl , Intel Core i5 CPU m430 , 2.27 GHz with 6 G of ram now.When I looked at the Device Manager. I saw at Other devices : Base System Device Base System Device Base System Device Network Controller Unknown device Unknown device. All have yellow triangle. I tried to install a driver, the Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller Driver but after the installation it gives me the next message : The Realtek Network Controller was not found.If Deep Sleep Mode is enabled Please Plug the Cable.
I have an HP DV6226US and I recently updated the BIOS to the F.2D version (from what I remember as F.14, and that BIOS version F.14 is not listed under the previous versions in the download section). I am running vista 32 os. F.2D is the version that is given for my model of computer on the HP software and drivers site. When I ran the updater, I remember it saying it checked compatibility before the BIOS flash and that it was the correct one. I do however have a T2250 intel processor rather than a T2060, which was the processor that my laptop was supposed to come with and I don't know if that would have any effect on which BIOS update I truly need.
Here is my question....
Before the flash the fan used to run constantly with obvious varying degrees of RPM's. After the flash, the fan doesn't seem to come on at all. It turned on once when I restarted the computer (right before it started loading vista). Other than that, I can't here a thing. However, I have used HD Tune and a very simple CPU monitor to see what kind of temps the internals are running at. My HDD (WD scorpion black 7200rpm 320GB) is running at constant 46c to 47c. Well within the manufactures specs, even under scans of the 200+gb loaded onto it. The CPU cores seem to be well within manufactures specs as well. Is this change in fan behavior due to the BIOS update, and if I should be concerned about the seemingly lack of fan activity. I use this laptop for DJ and Karaoke at 4 to 5 hour intervals about 5 days a week, and require that it not overheat.
The trackpoint middle scrolling button doesn't work for some of the newer applications such as ITunes, the newest versions of Picasa, Windows Live Mail, Safari, and Windows Live Writer.
Below is a fix applicable to all Windows OS's. The location of the edited file may vary so look in the Device Manager under trackpoint driver details to find driver locations.
The file must be edited as an administrator in Vista and Windows 7. To do this, at the programs box type in notepad and on the notpad program in the menu right click and select, "Run as Administrator."
In Win7 x64 it is located at: (edit with Notepad run as Administrator).

I just purchased the E540. Running Win 7.1. I have 2 WD 3.0 Passport drives plugged into a USB 3.0 hub. The 3.0 hub has the correct cable for 3.0. They are not being recognized as 3.0 devices (I get a message). I updated the USB 3.0 driver on lenovo's site and BIOS is set to auto.recognize. I have also tried the 3.0 option in the BIOS but that didn't do anything. I also tried using the drives without the hub in one of the 3.0 USB slots but that didn't do anything either.
I have checked the forum but what I found was possibly purchasing a 3.0 cable (not necessary - my cable is 3.0 compliant) but that was for a Wn 8 system or updating 3.0 device driver (done). So much for plug and play.
I have purchased a new E430 ,, installed windows 7 ultimate 64-bit. I installed all drivers and all is working fine.. I still have one unkown device (PCI) .. I think it's VGA .. but I installed intel HD card driver.
below is the info:
The drivers for this device are not installed. (Code 28) There is no driver selected for the device information set or element.
To find a driver for this device, click Update Driver.
i recently upgraded my g500 from windows 8 to windows to 8.1. But ever since then, my mouse does not work and the keyboard only works after standby. I tried to restore to factory defaults but that hasnt worked.
I have had the HP 620 laptop for about a year now , Recently upgraded it to windows 8 . So... as soon as i open my laptop , everything is fine and the wifi works and everything is basically normal , but when i use the laptop for like 10 min , the wifi randomly shuts off and tells me that i need to connect via an Ethernet cable, and when i do connect to ethernet cable it works . I am on windows 8.
I recently did a clean install of Windows 8.1 on my X230T, and also installed Office 2013.
I need to use the digitizer with OneNote 2013 heavily for taking lecture notes.
As I did when I was using Windows7, I set the side button on the digitizer to "eraser" and expect that it works properly.
Unfortunately, when I tried to press the button to switch the tip from the pen mode to the eraser mode, the behavior
of the digitizer becomes pretty strange.
(1) If I remain the tip close to the screen, it would not switch to the eraser mode
(2) if I move the tip a little higher and let the cursor disappear, then hold the button and move the tip back to the screen, I SOMETIMES get the eraser mode; but it doesn't switch back to the pen mode even if I release the button.
I need to again move the tip far away from the screen and release the button to get the pen mode back.
I downloaded the up-to-date driver from Wacom but it doesn't work.
Also, I cannot find the driver for this functionality for Windows 8.1 on Lenovo website;the latest version of multitouch driver only supports Windows 7 and older versions of windows.
I started using my laptop with Windows 8 and everything was working fine. But then Windows upgraded to 8.1 and now I cannot get the Dolby Home Theater v4 to start, I always get the error message about driver.
I have the following problem - after upgrading to Windows 7 I have only volume controls working, but not Fn+Fx key combinations.
1) Fn key physically works - it worked on Vista 2) In order to have volume controls working I had to install Visual Studio 2010 Redistributable package 3) My BIOS version is 2.24, tried downgrading to 2.23 as well 4) System Interface Driver is installed alongwith Hotkey Support 5) Power Manager is installed 6) Tried older Vista drivers
I recently bought an X240 and have this shutdown problems. Before it was caused by Norton anti-virus so I uninstalled it, then the laptop was working fine. Now, after some Windows update, it doesn't shutdown again. What is wrong with this laptop?
I am running Windows 8.0 (64bit) and my wifi is not working properly on Battery mode. On AC Adapter, it works 100% perfect but in battery mode, it always goes to Limited Connectivity. Repaired it but 25seconds later it gets the same problem. Limited Connectivity every single time. It's an endless cycle. Warranty has expired and I am not happy with it.
Even if repaired, cannot open any website. Full 5 wifi bars but still the same result. Tried manually (TCP/IP Settings IPv4) but didnt work at all.
My wifi driver is Intel Centrino Wireless N 2230 ( 220.127.116.11 version updated from intel.com website).
Product number C2Y46AV (HP ENVY DV6 NOTEBOOK PC)
Tried everything that I could possibly think off such as disabling Norton Firewall & Running windows firewall but still the same problem.
I have updated some months ago, my laptop 7859-5SG from Windows 7 to Windows 8 -> 8.1 and after that the bluetooth radio doesn't work anymore.
I tried to find a driver on the driver download section for my laptop, but I didn't find nothing. First problem found, is the hotkey fn+F5 that not show nothing on the display after key press, and normally with this function I can see if the radio is on or off.
I checked on the BIOS section if bluetooth is enable, and this is on. What I can do to activate bluetooth radio again?
I have an Presario CQ57-383SQ and in device manager, network controller has no driver and i can`t find it and my WI-FI doesn't work it shows that is disabled from device manager i thins it is because of the network controller driver.
And one more....PCI device has no driver and I don't know where to find it.
