I have multiple hard drives which have worked on my computer before. Now that I have windows 8.1 external drives are not assigned a drive letter. They show in disk management as online and I can assign them a drive letter so that I can use them. However, it is kind of anoying to have to assign every drive I plug in a letter every time it is plugged in. Is there a windows setting that I am missing? Is anyone else experiencing this? I believe it is a software issue because I coppied the hard drive image to another computer (identical specs) and the issue is now on the other computer.
Things I have checked:
Power savings settings for hard drives.
drivers for USB, SATA, and Chipset

Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
I’m really sorry to hear that when you plug external drives in your Lenovo system, they are not assigned a drive letter.
I would suggest you to open Command prompt in administrator mode and enter the following commands.
This will enable the automatic mounting of drives.
Hope this helps!
