Hi, i bought my Lenovo Ideapad 320 brand new but without OS. I've installed Windows 8.1 but i cannot find wifi drivers that work. There is no compatibile drivers anywhere i've installed drivers that your support recommends but they are not compatible. Can you please recommend me some compatibile drivers (not just for wifi, but all drivers that are neccesery). I don't have ethernet cable so i have to download drivers and put them on my flashdrive and then install them on my PC. So i cannot update any drivers that you recommended becouse i don't have network. Please recommend me valid drivers so i could enable wifi and then download the rest. Please respond as soon as possible, thanks

Hi, i bought my Lenovo laptop recently but without OS. I've installed Windows 8.1 (64bit) and i got some of the drivers but 5 are missing. PCI Data aquisition and Signal Processing Controller, PCI Simple Communications Controller, and 3 drivers marked as "unknown". I cannot find compatible drivers on Lenovo site for Windows 8.1, only for Windows 10. I would appreciate if someone would link me compatible drivers and helped me to find out what are those "uknown" drivers. Is there any Laptop that is compatible with mine (but with Windows 8.1 OS). Please help, i would be gratefull. And if you cannot solve this please tell me is it possible to run pc without these drivers (i mean play games and stuff). Any information will be helpfull, please respond as soon as possible. Sorry for my bad English if you didn't understood something, post a comment and i will try to explain. Regards!

Microsoft are not supporting Windows 7/8/8.1 on your laptop:

I have the same problems, after installing windows 8.1 pro on my lenovo Ideapad 320-15IAP, Intel Celeron N3450 Apollo Lake. Touchpad not working, 7 drivers are still missing after spending about 3 hours to install various drivers from lenovo, intel and other sites. Lenovo Bridge Support and tvsu.exe installed, but not working. If anyone can help, please insert a download link for the following driver ID's:
1. PCI Data Acquisition and Signal Processing Controller
2. PCI Simple Communications Controller
3. PCI Simple Communications Controller
4. PCI Simple Communications Controller
The last 3 appears in @other devices section as "unknown device", I don't understand why...
Thanks for Your help.

Repeating the same mistake doesn't change the outcome.

Ok, I don't exactly understand Your point of view...What's the mistake in my case: using win 8.1 instead of 10?
Did you read even bother reading CyberSimian's post?????

Yes, of course. Just a brief mention: about 2 weeks ago I installed win 8.1 on an HP 250 G6 notebook, their win 10 drivers worked properly on win 8.1 OS.
Well, of course, the HP 250 G6 is exactly just like the 320-15IAP.
And everything will work as you want them to.
