x240 wrong drivers published

2020-06-10, 14:08 PM

few days ago new graphics drivers where posted to the drivers & software site for the x240. Trying to install them fails because the device is said to be not fulfilling requirements. Through the system update program the same. Extracting the file instead of installing it and reading the install_readme.txt reveals those drivers are made for Broadwell chips, the 5th Gen Core i...

I don't think this device was ever shipped with Broadwell chips, it was only Haswell, 4th Gen. So where do you get drivers that actually are meant for the device? Intel was said to have adapted their drivers to also install on OEM devices, but they still refuse to

Hi Artim, You're going to have to give us more to go on. Which exact download are you talking about?

I'm experiencing the same thing. Drivers fail to install. Here are the drivers selected for the X240.

20.19.15.5126

Lenovo Vantage tries but fails to install this driver.

Manually attempting to install the same driver after manually downloading from the support site also fails the same way.

 

The release notes indicate this software is for 5th Gen Broadwell. The X240 has 4th Generation Haswell. And this correlates exactly with that Intel says in their version of this driver release.

 

 

Manually installing the driver from Lenovo Support results in this message

It looks like they finally pulled the driver... Vantage no longer attempts to install that driver. And a visit to the support page for X240 no longer shows ANY Win10 graphics drivers. Win 7, Win 8 but no Win 10.

Yep. They have the drive driver posted now - version 20.19.15.5126 driver for the x240.

And it works through Vantage update as well.
