Just spoke to Lenovo support about it. She was very helpful but unable to assist me. Wanted to sell me recovery media for a ridiculous $60.
I have some issues with this computer after downgrading to Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit from Windows 8.
1. Brightness controls don't work. At full brightness, using the slider on WIndows 7 or the physical brightness up/down on the keyboard does nothing. Thankfully it's not stuck at minimum brightness, however it's gonna burn my eyes out when I use the computer at night lol.
2. The Dolby Home Theater v4 program that came with it, I can't find a place to download it. Remote support attempted to install OneKey Theater (not sure what that has to do with anything?) but it won't even run. Here's the thing I want: http://www.dolby.com/us/en/consumer/technology/pc/dolby-home-theater-v4.html
3. Ugh the mouse on this computer sucks. Never had such a bad touchpad before, but it seems even worse under Windows 7. Yes, the laptop has a touchscreen but that's not always useful.
Any way to fix this would be appreciated. This is my 4th Lenovo laptop (previous one, still have it in fact in some ways liked it much better than this new one, was a Lenovo IdeaPad V570). Before that I had a Lenovo ThinkPad T61, and before that (when it was IBM), I had an IBM ThinkPad X31... Anyway, if these problems continue my next laptop will NOT be a Lenovo... and I'll stop recommending them. I've sent tons of people to buy Lenovo laptops (I work at a computer store, so a lot of people do ask me)...

No care from Lenovo? This is my last Lenovo product. Shame, I needed a couple more laptops for my company as well as considering some Lenovo servers in the future. But never again, unless this is resolved.
