Lenovo Y580 Windows 8 Bios

2013-04-01, 16:22 PM

Please help I cannot find info on this ANYWHERE...here's my problem.

 

I have a Lenovo Y580, with BIOS Version/Date LENOVO 5DCN90WW(V8.01), 10/11/2012. I see Windows 7 users got a BIOS update several months after...but not for Windows 8??

 

I am having some issues with games ( some freezing issues ) and also "no cable connection" issue upon starting the laptop, although that doesn't affect it booting up, but you see the message first. I want to update the BIOS to see if it fixes these issues. Only problem is, Lenovo hasn't provided a Windows 8 bios for this model.

 

What gives? Support staff is never any help...It's the worst customer experience I've ever had. I was put through heck even trying to PURCHASE the laptop...now I'm considering returning it, even though it's past the 21 day grace period...I don't care. If a BIOS update isn't provided as an update for a Lenovo Y580, I can't imagine I would be forced to keep the laptop if I can't upgrade it to perform properly.

 

Help is appreciated.

Please help? I am not the only one with this question. I really don't want to have to take the laptop back as I like it but if it cannot fit my needs due to lack of a BIOS update then I don't know what to do.
