Where is the stock windows 8 software for my Lenovo Thinkpad L430?

I have bought a used lenovo thinkpad. My brother has used it before me with no problems. I tried resetting it, and after, I booted up and simply went to the thinkpad screen, And then it went black. I tried simply making a bootible usb hard drive. That also failed. Where is the download of the stock thinkpad L430 Windows 8 operating system? I went to support and found Windows 8 64bit (The original oporating system), and could not find the software. I am thinking it will install the right drivers and fix it. Soo can someone help me find this mysterious download? -James

Hi, welcome to the forum.


Each Lenovo machine (commonly) has its own support web page with all the drivers listed. This is the one from the Thinkpad L430.  There you can download all the driver, firmware updates and software for the supported OS version.


I don't have more experience with Windows 8.1, but try also "Lenovo Companion" and check the "System Update" option to get drivers.
