Yoga 2 Pro - fresh install of Windows 10 - what should we install from Lenovo's download page?

2017-12-24, 13:42 PM

I've been extremely frustrated with both the screen flickering and crashing during sleep issues.  I figured before I buy a laptop from another company that I would at least try a reformat.

 

I was expecting devices to not be fully installed after the reformat but Device Manager does not show any issues.  PC is also running fine besides the fact that the trackpad doesn't right click properly and the resolution is off which probably can be addressed by installing the proper drivers.  What else should I install, though?

Solved! See the solution

Download/install Lenovo Vantage (ex-Companion.) Use its System Update function to find drivers/updates, download and install them on your system. You don't have to install everything but if you have "screen flickering and crashing during sleep issues" then I'd make sure to at least get the latest chipset, display, video, power management, etc. drivers.

 

P.S. If you suspect that particular driver(s) may be causing issues, then install them one at a time to identify which one(s) are bad.

Ok thank you.  The two things I pointed out...

 

1)  I forget the context menu trackpad not working properly requires a registry hack

2)  Display is fine - Windows 10 set the scaling to 250% so it looked like it was 1080p

 

I'll install Interface Foundation and then work from there.

An update. Lenovo recently integrated their support tools like Companion and Settings into a single function called Lenovo Vantage. Install that first, then let it determine what else you need. It's possible it will want to install Lenovo System Interface Foundation for Windows 10 but I'm not sure if this is still necessary with Vantage.

Right now I haven't installed any drivers or that app.  Is any of it necessary?  Because the laptop seems to be running just fine and has not crashed during sleep at all after 5 tries where it was 3 out of 5 before reformatting.

I would install Vantage because it provides several useful features, including Lenovo-specific settings, hardware diagnostics, system update, etc. The ability to set battery recharging thresholds will greatly increase the life of the battery, especially if you use the system on AC for significant amounts of time.

Ok I'll give it a try. Just concerned that all my issues that I've dealt with for some time is because of Lenovo drivers / software
