G50-80 - Lenovo settings and companion dont work properly

2016-02-11, 15:12 PM

HI,

when i try to acess lenovo companion or lenovo settings, i get a message to update the Lenovo Sytem interface Driver, i´ve done that 3 times , but the result is always the same, what can i do to resolve it? because both tools dont work correctly.

My laptop is a G50-80 with Windows 10 Home edition.

 

Thanks.
