I too am waiting for Lenovo to put out a real 10.8 driver update. The ATI website links that Yigit posted previously WILL cause your Y560 to crash and burn.
DO NOT INSTALL THOSE MOBILITY 10.8 DRIVERS FROM THE ATI SITE.
The installation will seem to go fine until your computer restarts at which point it will completely fail to detect your graphics card and then refuse to boot windows. I performed a system restore and thankfully that worked but it scared the crap out of me.
I'm anxiously waiting to play Final Fantasy XIV. They do have Open Beta access now, however, it seems that their client requires ATI driver 10.7+ to even function. When the game goes retail in a few weeks and my Pre-order arrives, it would be pretty tragic if the only thing stopping me from playing FF14 is Lenovo not having released a proper driver update.
I haven't tried the manual driver update method but I might try that soon...

The same thing happened to me. Had to restore my system to a couple of hours before. I bought my system only 2 days ago with very high anticipations. So far, this issue will lower my personal user rating to a 7.5. If I were you, stay away from manual installations. Something happens and they might have the courage to void your warranty for something like this. Good luck with your game

2 months? where did you get that information from?
Nvm. I know exactly what you're talking about. This has been known since the Y560 came out in June. Nearly 3 months and stil no fix. I wont lose hope and I'll give them some time to fix this.

A NEW DRIVER
I tried it with my Y560 with switchable graphics card and now after deinstalling the first and installing the new one. I get a manifest error or something.
- CAN'T start Control Center
- CAN'T switch graphics cards and can't go into the menu to switch them
What's happening here ?
Tried to deinstall the new one and blue screen. Restart functions but the problems are still there.
