Hotkey ability lost, P400 replaced HHD

I have a-


P400 Touch Laptop (ideapad)-Type 6280 Machine Type Model- 6280017
 product- 20211 Serial- ********** BIOS- 71CN51WW(V1.21)


Upon HHD replacement, lost use of hotkeys (most important- no lighted keypad, very low screen brightness, & low volume).


Though I have downloaded Lenovo Service Bridge,& Lenovo Solution Center, these do not check for presence of hotkey ability, or (possibly) other Lenovo assistance programs.  How could I re-install missing files? (especially Hotkeys)

Welcome to the Lenovo Community !


With the P400 model, Hotkey functionality is part of the Lenovo Energy Management application.  If you are using Windows 7 or Windows 8 as your operating system then just install the application from the link below. 


Windows 7 - 32 & 64 bit......


Windows 8 - 64 bit only......



If you are using Windows 10 then you will have to install the Lenovo Energy Management application in Windows Compatibilty Mode.
