So yesterday I decided to re-install my Lenovo G530 with Windows 7. After reading up on the subject, it seemed like there were no driver issues and everything would work just fine. 24 hours later, it feels less like a good idea and more like a mistake.
My Fn+FX (insert random number) doesn't really seem to work, there's no on-screen display, and as a result, my wireless network is software disabled. To enable it, I need access to FN+F5, and for THAT to work I need a proper version of Lenovo Energy Management.
I downloaded the one on the driver website and installed it, but it refuses to work. If I try to start the program manually, it automatically shuts down. Uninstalling and re-installing does not work. I also tried a couple of different versions of the software that were suggested on other forums, but that did nothing. Can anyone help?
EDIT: Forgot to mention that I installed a 32-bit version of Windows 7.

Hm, that I have not tried yet, will see how it goes.
I performed a clean install, as I'm not a huge fan of upgrade installations. They tend to bug out a lot.

The safe mode thing didn't seem to do a lot. Still the same problem. Vista drivers changed nothing either. The energy management software still crashes at start-up. For now, I've added a batch file during start-up that automatically enables the WLAN-part for me, although this is not an optimal solution.

un-install power management, restart your computer and try to install this one.
