Ideapad Y550 Upgrade to Windows 7 Ultimate

Just completed an upgrade of a factory fresh Y550 to W7 Ult. Only install issue I seem to have come across is an unknown device in the device manager.

 

The entry in device manager is as follows:

 

Device type: Other Devices

 

Manufacturer: Unknown

 

Location: on Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Embedded Controller

 

So anyone got any idea what the missing driver is and where I can get it.

 

The only other issue I have noticed is the easycamera webcam is slower than wading through molasses, is this a driver issue or something else. The camera is a crucial element for this laptop to me.

 

First post so be kindSmiley Happy

I got all drivers from download page

There were 2 missing as you mentioned then I downloaded by choosing Vista 64 bits. They would be the same. Now, no driver is missing.

Just another question, can you use face verification?

Thanks for the reply, I don't knowabout face verification never tried and to be honest not something I need. Which driver cleared up this issue for you, this is W7 32 bits incidently. The term unknown device is about as useful as a paper hat in a monsoon.

In drivers download section, there is only one software named "Veriface". I did download it and it worked like a charm!

efros,

The answer to your original question:

 

The file (IN2CIR01WW5.exe) downloaded to correct this issue was the ENE CIR driver.  BTW, i'm running Windows 7 x64 Ultimate.
