My Yoga 2 Pro is not automatically detecting/installing drivers. This is strange as the other three laptops in our house with Windows 8.1 do.


I looked into the event viewer and it said "Access to drivers on Windows Update was blocked by policy."

But how do I undo that to allow it? Is there a setting I should change somewhere? 


To activate automatic detection and installation of Window drivers 


  1. In "Control Panel" window, look for "Search Desktop" bar.
  2. Type "device installation" then press Enter.
  3. In the "device installation-Control Panel" window click "Change Device Installation Settings".
  4. In the "Device Installation Settings" window, click to check "Yes, do this automatically (recommended)", then click on Save Changes bottom.
  5. Click to close all open windows.
  6. Done
