Please ha a look into the readme-files on the Lenovo download pages.

 

Download and executing the driver-packages only extracts them into the directory C:\SWTOOLS\DRIVERS.

From there nou'll need to install the drivers and tools as described in the README

 

f.ex ATI video driver for WINDOWS 7:

Extracting the package
======================
1.  Click Start, then click Start Search.
2.  Type w1vdo08us17.exe in the search field, then click Search Everywhere.
    This will locate the file you just downloaded. 
3.  Double-click the w1vdo08us17.exe icon. You may see a dialog stating
    "A program needs your permission to continue". If you see this dialog,
    click Continue.
4.  Click Next. Read the license agreement.
5.  Click I accept the terms in the license agreement.
6.  Click Next.
7.  Ensure that "Save files in folder" is set to
    C:\SWTOOLS\DRIVERS\Video\w1vdo08us17.
8.  Click Next.
9.  Click Finish.


Installing the package
======================
1.  Close all open applications.
2.  Click Start, click All Programs, click Accessories, then click Run.
3.  Type C:\SWTOOLS\DRIVERS\Video\w1vdo08us17\Setup.exe, then click OK.
4.  Follow the onscreen prompts and choose to reboot at the end of
    installation.

I noticed that the file you mentioned is a graphics card installer.

I was able to install it now. I took me less than 30 minutes to figure it out. Thanks a lot.
