G510 - How to update from windows 8 to windows 8.1 with the right drivers

After a lot of problems by updating my windows system to 8.1, especially with the sound and bluetooth drivers (no sound), I set back to windows 8! I made all the 150 updates in windows 8 again and the system is working fine! Now I need to update to 8.1 again, because of the safety problems with 8! Is there a guide from lenovo, how to do it without getting the problems again? 

Sorry for my bad english and thank's for your help!

Re: G510 - How to update from windows 8 to windows 8.1 with the right drivers

Hi Hotte , 


Welcome to the Community Forums.


Since the launch of WIndows 8.1 , most cases showing up are failure of drivers whether sound , wifi and or graphics drivers not only with Lenovo but also with other OEMs based on other community forums. 


Windows applies its own native drivers instead of diret manufacturer drivers for the device. 

Events timeline usually happens after Upgrade and or Windows Update. 


What is recommended is using manufacturer specific drivers .

Taking manual control on how driver update is done on the system. 

Just folow the steps to change how windows driver update to never install automatically here and here .


Hope this answered your query .
