Z580 Ideapad - problems after upgrading to Win 8 pro

I have upgraded my Z580 Ideapad to Windows 8 pro from Windows Home Basic .I am sad to say that i got many errors, compactibility issues & now i am messed up with this.Issues facing(Windows 8 Pro installation was a fresh installation with out any old settings and files/programs)

  • Screen Brightness Issue: I have installed the latest intel driver and am not able to reduce my screen brightness.I also tried by changing adaptive brightness property.Still its not working
  • I cant access Windows mobility centre(Instead of that Werfault.exe Error window is coming).
  • Then Touch Pad( I saw ,there will be a loss in compactability after upgrading in the Upgradation instruction page).But my question is like,When will be next update of touchpad driver???

Hi, 

Have you guys tried to install Lenovo Energy Management?

If not, can you try installing it and then try to check brightness? Please let know if ti works Smiley Wink

i don't think it is a Lenovo based problem. It might be because of win8. I have checked it on a Z580, as you lower brightness from Mobility Center, it lowers the indicator from Energy management too, and aain if you use FN+UP key, it changes the indicator of mobility center too.
