How do i reinstall factory installed programs?

2013-09-10, 20:55 PM
I have w500
I have installed windows 7, but all of the lenovo programs are gone.
Even the fingerprint programs does not exist anymore.
How do i reinstall the programs again?
I searched and someone told me to press f11, but pressing f11 does not make any difference on the booting
I do have a partition and also have start recovery disk

>>> I have installed windows 7, but all of the lenovo programs are gone.

If it was a "clean installation" from Windows 7 installation disc, then obviously NO Lenovo-supplied drivers and programs are included.

ThinkVantage System Update ultility downloads software, driver and BIOS updates from a Lenovo server directly over the Internet without requiring specific user knowledge of where the package is
located or if it is needed by the target system.
