Open issues Win8.1 Yoga13

2013-10-17, 23:18 PM

Can we make a list here of apparent problems encountered when upgrading win8.0 to win8.1 on yoga13?

 

We don't need to dwell on the details here, which can be in other topics... but some of us desperately need to know which critical features may be lost if we prematurely make the move before fixes are identified. I certainly hope win8.1 can be  more a help than a hindrance, since 8.0 was no prizewinner. A moderator has implemented a policy to delete posts that expand into wider issues within detailed posts; thus we have a great practical need for a general catchall topic that can milk the experience of the brave early adopters.

 

1) In the beta 8.1 it was reported you can't rotate to tent mode. I don't care a bit about tent itself, but I must operate in the 180 and 90 degree rotated mode frequently... is that working in today's release?

 

2) Audio and possibly video was reported lost in the upgrade (in certain modes?). The audio was said to be restored if you re-install audio drivers.

 

3) ?

 

4) ?

I'm having plenty of issues with the recent update to windows 8.1. Video drivers don't work. Sound wasn't working. Wifi seems crappy. I don't know if it's the wifi or video that's causing this lag when im browsing the internet as well. The on screen keyboard has lag issues as well.. **bleep** lenovo. I spent $1000 bucks for this yoga when it first came out and now I can't even use it with windows 8.1. Im going back to window 8 for now until everything is fine.  I'm not too happy with Lenovo. Windows 8.1 work well for the Yoga 2 but they completely do nothing for us previous owners. I updated my crappy dell inspiron 660s desktop with no issues. I'm about to sell this laptop and get a dell!

Some yoga driver screen offers the ability to roll back to the previous driver. But it doesn't always offer that choice... I think it was nuked when I loaded a backlevel wifi driver which works well. Anyway, maybe the win8.1 install overwrote your drivers with generic ones, and if it plays nice maybe you can just tick a box to try restoring the originals (assuming they are compatible)?

My touchpad isn't working properly. Multitouch scrolling and double tap to right click didn't work after the upgrade. I re-installed the old drivers, and the multi-touch scrolling now works, but I stil can't multi-tap to right click.

 

My touchscreen is only working intermittantly, but that problem started a couple of days ago with the last update before the upgrade.

I don't know HOW to update! :

 

It hangs at 72% ("Gathering information") for hours then installation aborts. Tried it several times, with rebooting and resetting the store cache. In the net I read something about problems with the Intel Dynamic Framework drivers but seeing all you who updated I wonder how you did that without problems?

 

I have an i7 Yoga 13. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated! Thanks.

Lenovo has just released 2 new drivers for win8.1 yoga13... I guess for wlan/bt and graphics. Maybe more to come. You start here http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/downloads/default.page? and do a search for yoga 13... it gave me all kinds of annoying messages to get to the list, but try.

So far, the main (and huge!) issue I'm having with the upgrade to Windows 8.1 is that my USB ports no longer read what I plug into them.  As a result, the dock I plug into for use of external keyboard, mouse, and monitor is not functional, and I can't use a thumb drive to retrieve necessary files and information.  If anyone knows of drivers or other fixes to this issue, please let me know!

I have to add that the release bits to Windows 8.1, that have now been made available publicly through the windows store, disables most Yoga 13 video for me. No Netflix, No YouTube, and most games crash on launch.

So far I am getting NO Audio or Video. Also, my camera is not working correctly. It appears to work in Desktop mode using YouCam but if I try to use the Camera, Skype, or Hangouts, I am getting the following error:

"Looks like there's something wrong with your camera. Check the manufacturer's website for troubleshooting info."
