Z580 Windows Driver/Programs issue's

Hello...

 

   I recently tried to "upgrade" to windows 8 (I tried doing both, and upgrade and a clean install).  Almost ALL of the Windows 8 drivers, I downloaded from the Lenovo Driver Matrix do not install. I get a varying array of error messages. I also can not get the smart fan (dedusting mode) to work, One Key Theater, Dolby Audio, etc, to work. This has turned out to be a total nightmare. Where, how can I get Windows 8 driver for my Z580 that will install correctly? How, where can I get the Dolby audio and One Key theater to install and work? How do I get the dedusting mode to work? Any and all help will be greatly appreciated.

Re: Z580 Windows Driver/Programs issue's

Hello -

   Thank you very much for helping with my windows 8 issue, I just want to double check, are these the drivers for the 64bit version of windows 8? Also, how do I get the Dolby home theater v4 to install and work correctly? Also, is there a version of the "Lenovo enhanced experience 3 for windows 8 x64 ideapad z580, smart fan/de-dusting function, "Fn" key functions, capacitive touch keys, etc.? And should I be advices for what current features/function I will loose moving from windows 7 to windows 8?  I thank you very much for your help Smiley Happy

as far as I know, de-dusting is part of Power Management Software on Win8, at least it looked like it on the Lenovo laptop in the store.

Re: Z580 Windows Driver/Programs issue's

Thank you for the downloads of drivers for windows 8. I noticed that these are x86 (32bit drivers). Are these the drivers needed for the x64 (64bit) version of windows 8?  I have also found PCEE driver for the Dolby Home Theater v4, in both x86, and x64. Which of these do I install for the x64 Windows 8?
