ok, it seems all you need to do is download these two drivers

http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/downloads/detail.page?DocID=DS035004

 

install the bios first, then the energy management. read the read me ans pay attention to the:

"7. In normal case, the cpu will auto restart after the bios installed. If you find your computer is shut down with keyboard backlight on, you can keep press the power button longer than 8S and press the power button again to start the computer. The bios should be installed properly."

 

My yellow is now yellow.

Frankly I think lenovo should just close this topic and make a sticky telling users to just update these drivers for the colour fix.

There is a Knowledge Base link at the top of this forum giving directions on how to apply the fix. Look below the main navigation banner but above the user posts. It's a bit stealthy - they need an animated .gif saying "click here to fix your yellow"

Don't forget to disable adaptive brightness in Win8 and Intel Display settings after applying the BIOS and Energy Manager updates.

Ah! just saw it. I never even bothered to even read the description, I always thought it was just a random ad. They should definitely make it more visible.

bh626 I have applied the BIOS and Energy Manager updates, but I don't know where to disable the disable adaptive brightness in Win8 and Intel Display settings? Sorry, this may seem a basic question, but I'm new to Windows and am still finding my way around.

What will that do exactly? Does it consume battery or?..

Please read some of the forum
Adaptive brightness....let's break it down...
Adaptive (change) brightness (how bright your screen is)
If you turn off adaptive brightness, your screen won't change brightness....
I mean....come on...this is the worst thread in thread history

Intels and windows
Windows has to be adjusted in every power plan you use in the advanced settings under display
Intel has one setting to adjust in the graphic properties under power but it's called battery savings (something like that), turn that off.

Here is a nice color profile that should make your yelllows look better.  From another Forum:

 

http://forum.notebookreview.com/ideapad-essential/735166-yoga-2-pro-owners-thread-178.html#post9488805

 

Just download and unzip it then double click the profile to apply it automatically.  Nothing dramatic will happen but the colors will improve a bit.
