Lenovo G580 Windows 10 ACPI Driver not installing?

I noticed that new drivers were released for G580. The drivers (Lenovo Enegry Management Driver) canot install because when the installer starts up, it immediatelly closes. Do I have an issue somewhere?

 

Windows 10 (1511, Build 10568.17)

Lenovo G580 (20157)

hi acemod13,

 

I looked at the Lenovo Energy Management driver for Windows 10 and upon observing the installer behavior, it extract the ACPI driver files (58KB) to C:\ProgramData\Lenovo\ACPIDriver (this may explain why the installer closes right after extracting).

 

If you're seing an Unknown Device in the Device Manager with an ACPI hardware ID (see image below) then try to update the driver manually and point it to the C:\ProgramData\Lenovo\ACPIDriver folder

 - Sample image

 

If you're unable to see the driver files, I've uploaded them here.

 

 

Let me know how it goes.

 

Regards

Hi there,

I have G510 and the same problem with ACPI Driver. It doesn't want to run, the extracting is ok to C:\drivers\Energy Management Driver.
Further, I don't see Unknown device in the Device Manager.
And my light-operator buttons (F11, F12) don't works.
Please, help me!
