Y50-70 - Utility FN volume/brightness on-screen display

Hello,

 

I recently purchased a Lenovo Y50-70 laptop and after installing all the drivers from the site I noticed that the display that comes up when I change the volume/brightness etc may appear differently.

I recognize the dark+green theme from my previous Y570 laptop.

My question is what is causing either one or the other to be displayed? Is there anyway I can control which to show?

 

Thanks,

Seerix

It should have been working out of the box. You don't say what the OS is!!

OneKey update will upgrade all older drivers if you miss any.

Re: Utility FN volume/brightness on-screen display

I'm sorry, my bad. I installed windows 7 since it still had drivers for it. I installed this driver http://support.lenovo.com/be/en/products/laptops-and-netbooks/lenovo-y-series-laptops/y50-70-noteboo...
for the on-screen display.
I do not see any OneKey driver for Y50-70 Windows 7 64bit filters.

Re: Utility FN volume/brightness on-screen display

Its a utility. Look under Windows 8.1 if you see it check the readme if its backwards compatible. But that utility sounds right for the controls.
Did it ever work. Sound as well as brightest, caps lock onscreen are all tied to it.

If you can't see and reason do as I did and call Tech support. The fixed a problem with LSC running very quickly (they know what is wrong already).

Yes, it works. All function keys work. The issue that I wanted to highlight is that they show with the 2 different themes from my 1st post (dark+green and transparent+white). And I have no idea why it changes from one to the other.
It seems it picks one on boot and then sticks with that theme until the next boot.
