ACPI drivers for windows 10 Z50-70 not installing

Hey, i have a z50-70 just got an SSD and did a fresh install of windows 10 cos we all know how much microsoft's OS "upgrading" (wrecking) works.

 

so it all went smooth and fine i downloaded and installed the latest drivers off http://support.lenovo.com/in/en/products/Laptops-and-netbooks/Lenovo-Z-Series-laptops/Lenovo-Z50-70?...

 

and all the drivers work fine except the ACPI one. the installer doesnt even open. at all i tried running as admin, turning off UAC , compatibility etc etc. just wont open it flashes for a few milliseconds and disappears.

 

and im thinking as a result of this my computer wont go to sleep, well it does but wakes up immediately i ran powercfg /lastwake to find the problem it said the power button -_- like seriously?

 

can someone help me get my ACPI drivers updated... and no windows update is not helping.

Hi there

 

The ACPI driver from lenovo is a silent install which means its installing in background & doesnt show you any progress.... Actually it is installed fine... no worries Smiley Happy

It opened okay on windows 8.1 where I had to press next a few times then it installs... 

 

In this nothing happened... Rebooted checked the ACPI driver... It's still the same.

BUMP

 

i refreshed my PC and updated every single driver

 

If any lenovo staff around can you just give me the driver files. without the installer so i can force windows to update to those. it'd be great !!! or if any other z50-70 user can pass me the files that'd be great too !!

 

microsoft support is a joke someone help me out.

Recent release of the ACPI driver is the same as before dated 2006 Ver 10.0.10586.0 showing as migrated for the OS upgrade. The previous version did not install either apparently I never verify and just ran it but nothing displays after. One assumes its done working.

Re: ACPI drivers for windows 10 Z50-70 not installing

I called Tech support. Despite them claim they'd support windows 10 if I installed the upgrade over Win 8.1. The newly released ACPI management driver (7/23/2016) will not install. There is no readme for it nor any measure/error either.

They say I have to purchase software support to talk to someone on this. Its a foundation OS driver which should install transperantly on its own. I should not have to consult to run an OEM created package approved for my Z70-80.

This is absurd. More drivers were released and installed without issues. Other than some Alteros and Bluetooth drivers did not take automatically but I believe I got the key one updated.
