many questions & problems

2019-02-14, 9:19 AM



i have since yesterday a lenovo ideapad 330-15IKB . a solid device, which i got, because i bought a low quality device before and exchanged it. but I noticed some things right at the beginning.


1 the bios update per vantage tool failed


2 i didn't have full touchpad support right from the start. first i had to find 2 registry tweaks (tap-two_finger & tap-two_finger enable on the net.


3 the scrolling was by nature much too fast (e.g. under brave browser).  also here i had to find a registry tweak with difficulty (scroll_control mode from 0 to 1)


3b but even with this value the scrolling is still too fast.


4 after a driver-update with your in-house tool i suddenly couldn't open the intel graphics panel anymore. 


4b i only had to go back to an older graphics driver (i.e. the one that was already installed when i bought it). then i was able to open the intel tool again. more exactly: only the intel uhd graphics 620 driver version from 28.02. 2018 is allowed to be installed, so that the intel tool starts. if i install the newer driver 24.20x, the described problem appears.


4c for me as a user, this means that i can no longer trust driver updates, because they immediately reduce the functionality of the device. 


5. please don't misunderstand, i like this device, but as for the user it shouldn't be that i have to search and do any registry tweaks before -for meanwhile normal touchpad behaviour. 


6. and if I can't trust any driver update anymore - thats a big, big problem.


7. what i also don't quite understand, why do i have two drives? a small windows-SSD drive with 117 GB but also a second drive (data) with 931 GB. such a partitation is new to me under windows and why isn't the second drive also a ssd drive? 


8. what happens with the intel - tool et cetera, if i update the old amd - driver via the tool "auto-detect and install radeon™ graphics drivers for windows" (https://www.amd.com/en/support) ?


9. why does drivereasy show me 20 outdated drivers? see snapshot.


7. final question: can i install a linux distro without big problems too? for example, opensuse or fedora. i have my doubts if driver problems are already occurring under windows. on the other hand, i saw a lenovo of the same series preinstalled with opensuse on an internet page.





ps: again: otherwise a great device.it's not an attack, it's an indication of what shouldn't be.
