All failed. Ill get back to it after Monday and report back with what I ended up trying and what worked. May help someone. But for now I would tell everyone that is on Windows 8 to stay put and forget about 8.1.

Thanks for all the help Aurimasma. Have a good day :)

Use the following driver versions with Windows 8.1 on S440. Hopefully your system would behave normally.

 

AMD 13.152.1.1400 dated 10/14/2013 (available here https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/62276273/j3d706ww.exe by Lenovo)

Intel 9.18.10.3145 dated 4/30/2013 (available here http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/downloads/detail.page?DocID=DS035728)

 

Regards,

 

Adeel

Re: Windows 8.1 update - S440 ThinkPad black screen with flickering cursor.

2014-02-09, 16:21 PM

Hello, today early morning I got BIOS system update called "Thinkpad BIOS update [32,64]" for my Lenovo ThinkPad S400 via "Lenovo System update" program. After reboot, AMD Radeon HD 8670M is not working, shows yellow tick. I can't use programs that uses much of graphical memory. I have tried install later versions of AMD Catalyst, but it is not working too. Before this update, everything was running OK.

My computer needs another system update for AMD.

 

 

AMD version: 13.152.1.1400

Intel: 10.18.10.3316

ThinkPad BIOS: 1.56

 

I have another problem "Wi-Fi connectivity issues". Then I connect to wifi, after 1-5 minutes it shows limited or no Wi-Fi connectivity. I know that microsoft maked an update for this problem called: Windows 8.1 Update Module KB2890084 - 8.1 [64], but I can't install it via "System Update" or manually. It crashes all the time. How to install it? Anyone has this problem solved?

Hi, same problem here since the update to bios 1.56 both drivers are not working ( I had functional drivers for only two weeks) :
S440 : 20AYCTO1WW
AMD : 13.152.1.1400
Intel : 10.18.10.3316

I'll try to reinstall those drivers. I'll keep you posted if i find a solution.

I stopped all updates.. windows, lenovo.... everything...

maybe one day someone will find out what is causing the flickering issue and fix it in NEW drivers, 

but till than I'm not going to risk it .

 

I have checked my BIOS version and it I have 1.09

 

If didierkun sollution won't work, I would try to downgrade the bios.

 

You can also ask the guy from Prague{Tomas?}, who provided us with the solution to the "flickering issue" what BIOS version does he have... 

 

Maybe he'll be able to help again.

How about sollution for "Wi-Fi connectivity issues", how to make this update "Windows 8.1 Update Module KB2890084 - 8.1 [64]" installed? Why it crashes every time then I try to install it?

Hi,

I installed the latest amd_catalyst_14.1_mobility_betav1.6.exe

Catalyst 14.1 beta 1

I am on latest bios and everything seems working.

I can dim up and down the display and put him to sleep.

 

Just remember if you have Microsoft wireless mouse it can wake it up from sleep if you click the mouse.

Sorry for my question, but I just want to be sure ;)

I don't want spending more time trying to fix it again :D
