Y570 No drivers for Linux available

2012-11-05, 13:56 PM

Good day,

 

I have an IdeaPad Y570 but on the website there are no drivers available for a Linux-type OS. I'm using Linux Mint 13 64 bit. Any help, please?

Thanks

Have you tried booting to a live cd to see if you will need drivers?  Most of the time you wont need anything to get it to work.  If you do need drivers they are usually easy to find.

Well, I need to install the drivers. First of all, I can't even turn on my Nvidia GPU. There are no drivers for my devices
