Re: Yoga 2 Pro (20266 / 80AY) - Lenovo devices tested for Windows 10 version 1703 (update March, 201

NOTE: Local Group Policy Editor is ONLY available for Windows 10 Professional or Enterprise users, then if are running HOME edition is better to go with "Intel Graphics Driver for Windows 10 (64-bit) - 20.19.15.4642 - From Microsoft" (Driver Info) using Windows Update service. 1) Follow DDU instructions above skipping Steps 4 to 11 and the Group Policy recommendation that applies only for newer VGA driver .4835 from Intel. 2) Then go to Settings \ Update & Security \ Check for Updates and select INSTALL NOW.

 

 

NOTE: FLICKER FREE on Battery (Turned ON "automatic screen refresh rate" @ Energy Manager) will work ONLY in "Daily Mode" or "Cinema Mode" @ Screen 48Hz.
The other options "Stable Mode" and "High Performance Mode" @ Screen 60Hz will flicker from time to time.
When on charging all four Modes will run smoothly and FLICKER FREE.

If you are still not confident that this Setup Guide can fix the issues like flicker, shutdown, sleep, ssd performance, overheating, tablet mode slow down, weird color display, wifi & bt connection dropping, miracast and "maybe" some other small issues that I forgot to mention. I suggest to read THIS.
I hope this help a lot of people on the same situation.

 

Best Regards,

Some Updates and Notes:

 

1) Before install "Intel Rapid Storage Technology for Windows 10 (64-bit) - 14.8.14.1063 - From Intel" and "Intel Graphics Driver for Windows 10 (64-bits) - 15.40.37.4835 - From Intel" => Read this LINK


Display Driver Uninstaller (DDU) V17.0.8.2 => VGA Tool, latest version

Note: ENABLE SAFE MODE before uninstall the current VGA driver

 

 

(*) The ONLY way to fix the BUG - SCREEN FLICKERING WHEN ON BATTERY => Read this LINK

 

 

(*) How do I stop Windows 10 from "upgrade or downgrade" my graphics driver with WRONG version using Local Group Policy Editor? => Read this LINK

Note: Group Policy configuration is mandatory before steps 12 and 13 on DDU (VGA Driver / Set Windows Device Instalation Settings to Default).

 

 

2) Lenovo Apps:

 

"Lenovo Settings" was discontinued then don't install it
"Lenovo Account Portal" was discontinued then don't install it
"Lenovo Companion" was renamed to "Lenovo Vantage" and should be installed

 

3) Which Partition to format when Clean Install Windows 10? => Read this LINK

 

Regards,


Than you

Sorry, it cut everything off when quoted. For GP settings, i can't read the values you set for Device ID's fully. Can you provide text for these?

Thanks again for the guide. Hope this helps as i have had this sitting on a shelf for 6-9 months and was about to go but another and thought to give this one more shot....after i renamed it to POS after i did a fresh install and still had the issue (thought it was an issue from upgrade to 8.1 to 10 at the time)

Hi Ryi,

 

I'm running "Intel Graphics Driver for Windows 10 (64-bits) - 15.40.37.4835 - From Intel" without a single flicker event for months now with Energy Manager trick.
You can get your driver values @ Device Manager \ Display Adapters \ Intel HD Graphics Family \ Details \ Hardware IDs \ Value

 

Regards,

You can order a new Battery for USD70.00

 


Just Google it! NEWEGG's Offer
I already upgraded my Y2P (20266) with:

 

- New Original Lenovo Battery L12M4P21
- New Samsung 850 EVO 1TB mSata
- New Intel Dual Band Wireless AC 7260 NGW
- Windows 10 Professional (1709)

 

Compared with other new Ultrabook (2-1) I'm totally satisfied with my 3 years old version.

Regards,

ah, perfect! you beat me to researching it.  Thanks!  BTW, how many hours are you getting off the new battery?  i have been seeing some reviews that they are not getting over 3hrs with replacements?  also, good improvement for WiFi with that radio?

I don't see any difference in battery performance now compared to when it was new (3 years ago).

 

- Watching Netflix (Full HD) or 1080P MKV Movie through WiDi (Wireless Display / Miracast) with Bluetooth (Sound); 4 hours
- Working with Office 2016 (Word or Excel), Internet (Edge) and EMail (MS Mail or Outlook 2016) simultaneously; 6 - 8 hours

 

NOTE: I strongly recommend to upgrade WiFi Card with Intel Dual Band Wireless AC 7260 NGW that has great performance and connection stability improvements @ 5Ghz AC.
