Lenovo Y580 Windows 8 Pro 64bit Complete Drivers

2012-10-27, 19:14 PM

Hi everyone! After a whole day of tinkering, researching, reformatting and more, I have finally found the complete set of drivers for our beloved Lenovo Y580! It's time for you guys to enjoy Windows 8 as well. :)

 

Credits to hsuyucheng as well for the other drivers! :)

 

IMPORTANT NOTE: I recommend that you restore your Windows 8 to factory settings. To do that go to Settings - > Change PC Settings ->General -> Remove Everything and Reinstall Windows. BACKUP YOUR FILES BEFORE DOING THIS! :)

 

I am putting the drivers here in order of installation. :)

 

1. Intel Chipset - http://driverdl.lenovo.com.cn/lenovo/DriverFilesUploadFloder/35857/Win8_Chipset.exe

2. Intel VGA HD4000 Driver - http://driverdl.lenovo.com.cn/lenovo/DriverFilesUploadFloder/35862/Win8_intel_VGA_x64.exe

3. Nvidia Driver - http://us.download.nvidia.com/Windows/306.97/306.97-notebook-win8-win7-winvista-64bit-international-whql.exe

4. Realtek Audio - http://driverdl.lenovo.com.cn/lenovo/DriverFilesUploadFloder/35865/Win8_Audio.exe

5. Wireless Lan - http://driverdl.lenovo.com.cn/lenovo/DriverFilesUploadFloder/35869/Win8_WLAN.exe

6. Bluetooth - http://driverdl.lenovo.com.cn/lenovo/DriverFilesUploadFloder/35870/Win8_Bluetooth.exe

7. Camera - http://driverdl.lenovo.com.cn/lenovo/DriverFilesUploadFloder/35872/Win8_Camera.exe

8. Card Reader - http://driverdl.lenovo.com.cn/lenovo/DriverFilesUploadFloder/35871/Win8_Cardreader.exe

9. Synaptics TouchPad -http://driverdl.lenovo.com.cn/lenovo/DriverFilesUploadFloder/35868/Win8_TouchPad.exe

10. Gigabit LAN Driver - http://driverdl.lenovo.com.cn/lenovo/DriverFilesUploadFloder/35866/Win8_Lan.exe

11. Lenovo Energy Management - http://driverdl.lenovo.com.cn/lenovo/DriverFilesUploadFloder/35867/Win8_EM.exe

12. Intel Rapid Storage Driver - http://driverdl.lenovo.com.cn/lenovo/DriverFilesUploadFloder/35858/Win8_IRST.exe

13. Intel Management Engine - http://driverdl.lenovo.com.cn/lenovo/DriverFilesUploadFloder/35860/Win8_MEI.exe

14. OneKey Theatre - http://driverdl.lenovo.com.cn/lenovo/DriverFilesUploadFloder/36074/Win8_OneKey_Theater_x64.exe

15. Intel Wireless Display Driver - http://driverdl.lenovo.com.cn/lenovo/DriverFilesUploadFloder/35875/Win8_WiDi.exe

 

Every time a driver says my computer needs to restart, I restart. It's worth the wait. :p

 

Touchpad Notes

Our Lenovo Y580's touchpad will work like a touch screen device (with the gestures). If you will notice, scrolling up and down is opposite than the normal. The reason for that I think is that, it's as if we're swiping down from the screen. You'll get it when you use it. Haha.

 

Touchpad Shortcuts

Swipe from rightmost of touchpad: brings out the search, share, start, devices and setting menu

Swipe from leftmost of the touchpad: next program (switches programs)

Swipe from uppermost of touchpad: bring out the menu of the app/program you are running

Swipe from lowermost: nothing. haha.

 

USB 3.0 Fixes

If you're USB 3.0 hard drives keep getting disconnected or is not running USB 3.0 do this:

1. When you install the Lenovo Power Management, open it and turn off the hard disk drive power saver option.

2. After that select the USB 3.0 hard drive, right click and select properties -> Hardware -> Select the USB 3.0 drive -> Properties -> a pop up will open then select Change Settings -> Select the Policies Tab and then set Removal Policy to Better Performance then ok. Shut down Windows 8, remove your portable USB 3.0 drive and boot up then plug the USB 3.0 drive again.

 

After doing all of this, I was able to use my portable usb 3.0 drive properly in full speeds.

 

I hope this helps and I hope all of you will be able to enjoy Windows 8 Pro as well.

 

A thank you/kudos would be nice too. :) Good luck everyone!

Updated the drivers list with the Intel WiDi :) here's a link to it too for easier access: http://driverdl.lenovo.com.cn/lenovo/DriverFilesUploadFloder/35875/Win8_WiDi.exe

Sorry if I didn't add it the last time. I don't have WiDi on my Lenovo Y580 hehe. Good luck! :)
