Hi, witboy007

 

I found the driver matrix for your system on Lenovo's site, which can be seen here. This page lists all the drivers that are available for your system. It is similar to the one on Lenovo's home page, but this can be filtered by device type and operating system. Try downloading and installing them from here, beginning with BIOS version 40 and see how it goes.

 

Best of luck,
Adam

so first step i must update bios ?
like this?
1. Locate the file 5DCN40WW.exe that has been downloaded.
2. Double click the 5DCN40WW.exe icon.
3. Click install
4. Click flash bios
5. Press Enter to start flashing. During the process, you are advised not to turn off the computer.
6. When the update finishes, the computer will automatically reboot for the changes to take effect.

and when this finished then what is next driver ?

Hi again, witboy007

 

Yes, those are the correct steps to update the BIOS. Following that update, the other drivers can be installed in practically any order you choose. But I would upgrade them in this order, if it helps: Chipset, Video, Networking (wireless LAN and ethernet), and Audio. Those are the crucial ones. Following those, you can just update the ones you want and need depending on what you normally do with your computer.  Hopefully, when all the drivers are updated the "Base System device" will disappear from device manager. 

 

Best,

Adam

i try now this

 

I) Download the drivers for your Lenovo IdeaPad Y580 from Lenovo.com

01-Intel Wireless LAN Driver 0pwl06ww.exe 229 MB

02-Intel Chipset Driver 0pah07ww.exe 2.48 MB

03-Intel Rapid storage Technology 0pst04ww.exe 11.3 MB

04-Intel Management Engine Interface 0pme05ww.exe 45.5 MB

05-Intel Onboard Graphics Driver 0pvh07ww.exe 208 MB

06-Nvidia Display Driver 0pvl13ww.exe 443 MB

07-Intel USB 3.0 Driver 0pus05ww.exe 5.39 MB

08-Realtek Audio Driver 0pau08ww.exe 151 MB

09-Atheros LAN Driver 0pla03ww.exe 5.31 MB

10-Jmirco Card Reader Driver 0pcr02ww.exe 1.39 MB

11-Broadcom Bluetooth Driver 0pbl08ww.exe 297MB

12-TouchPad Driver (Cypress, Synaptics) 0pto14ww.exe 142MB

13-Camera Driver (Bison, Chicony, AzureWave) 0pca05ww.exe 34.5MB (This is a Zip File, unpack, then go to Device Manager, then manually update the Webcam Drivers by pointing to the 64-bit Drivers in the extracted folder)

14-Lenovo Energy Management cagt24ww.exe 21.2MB

15-OneKey Recovery 7.0 caot11ww.exe 278MB

Optional:

16-Lenovo EE Boot Optimizer v0.0.1.7 IN8STW15WW5.exe

17- Windows Hotfixes Hotfix qfxg01ww.exe 980KB Hotfix qfxf01ww.exe 859KB

18-Intel Disable ZPODD Register v2.0 IN1PCH43WW5.exe (turns off your DVD Drive when not in use to save power)

II) Install the drivers you just downloaded ONE BY ONE in the numbering order in which they are listed above! They are numbered that way for a reason! Please do not change that order if you want everything to work perfectly!

PLEASE RESTART YOUR COMPUTER AFTER EVERY DRIVER INSTALLATION, I know this may take longer, but if you want a perfect system, restart after every driver/utility installation, even though it doesn't prompt you to restart, don't take any shortcuts! RESTART ON YOUR OWN!

Final notes: Intel.com has updated WiFi drivers. Nvidia.com has updated 660M drivers. I had trouble with the on-board graphics driver, so I used Windows update for that one. I also had trouble with the 660M driver so I used the Nvidia.com beta driver IIRC 304.79. I had trouble with the WiFi driver as well so I used the Intel.com driver. Finally I had trouble with the Realtek audio driver, so I used the Realtek.com driver.

Either way I was very disappointed with Lenovo.com's drivers provided. So if they do not work just get them from the hardware's manufacturer's site.

3) After installing all the drivers and utilities, run Windows Update again and check if it finds any new updates
