running Win 10 on the SL510

I suspect a lot of people have upgraded their Win7 SL510's

 

I did that and found a few issues.

The screen brightness controls stopped working and aslo there was no Sound or microphone working

 

To fix the screen brightness al I did was a reset of Win 10. I presume as it had updated over the top of Win 7 it may have left problems. After resetting the keyboard controls worked again

 

However no sound.

 

My first port of call was just to try to 64 bit original Win 7 driver it worked but finding the drivers was not so easy. Lenovo have moved the drivers to and end of life site:here:

 

https://download.lenovo.com/eol/

 

I typed in my model and downloaded the audio driver. ran it and rebboted all is working now including the annoying Cortana. Mic works for searching too!

 

Note: the physical switch on the laptop for the min is lit in red suggesting it is off.. it does not do anything now but at least the mic works ok.

 

Ps; Upgrading he the laptop cheaply, has proved useful: installing an SSD and 8 Gb of RAM along with a T9600 (£12 off ebay!) and it is workable with Win 10 now.

Hi Grazuncle9,

You may update your Hotkey Features Integration. As SL510 machine does not support Windows 10, some hotkeys may not work as expected.
