Yoga 500-14: fan speed, keyboard light and battery issues



i bought a yoga 500-14. Huge mistake and a piece of garbage. Nonetheless, i m stuck with it. 


My questions:

- the keyboard doesnt light up when i press Fn + Space. Is that normal?

- I want to adjust fan speed or disable fan. How do I do that? Any soft? I used to have powermgt before

- battery life is like 2h45. LOL. How is that even possible?


Also, where do I get the software, like Windows 8 and other utilities if I need to re install my PC? I got nothing...

All your questions are answered by reading the manual which came with your PC or is easily avalable to download on the internet.


Backlight control Fn - Spacebar.

Fan speed is automatically controled by the power scheme in Windows. Power Saving scheme turns it off if on battery.

Add a custom scheme to turn various devices on, reduced performance mode or off to save power.

I get 4-6 hours, depending what I'm doing from a 500-ACL.

To restore Windows with all drivers use One Key Recovery. Instructions in the manual.
