y550, win7, screen brightness and dolby digital, bluetooth

as far as i know the drivers on the lenovo site for win7 x64 will get everything working except the ability to change the screen brightness, the dolby digital button, and i don't even know if its actually a feature, but the ability to alter the onetouch theatre settings. if a win7 driver wasn't available i used a vista x64 driver. but i have installed all of the latest drivers as of this post.

 

how do i find out if i actually have bluetooth capabilities? newegg didn't say anything about it but i can see the little bluetooth icon.

update: i installed the latest video drivers off the nvida website and i can now change the display brightness!

 

now if the dolby digital worked i'd be really happy....

Re: dolby digital button

solution for dolby digital: http://forums.lenovo.com/t5/IdeaPad-Y-and-U-series-Laptops/Y550-windows-7-dolby-digital-control-cent...

 

solution for screen brightness adjusting: download the latest video card drivers. i grabbed mine straight from nvidias website.
