Re: Windows 8 drivers

2012-07-26, 21:00 PM

Again,

Here are the Windows 8 Beta Drivers Lenovo has released so far.  They update this page frequently with new Win 8 drivers or updates to the ones they already had.  Lots of tablet driver on here, new bios, etc.

 

This page has been around for quite a long time, but the links to it seem to keep getting deleted from the forums, bookmark it before this post gets deleted and check the page for updates once a week or so.

Also hit Intel's site if you have onboard intel graphics (like the HD3000 in my X220T). 

 

Lenovo initially had Intel drivers in the Win 8 beta section but has seems to have pulled them (probably because they were crap). 

 

If you try to go through Intel's site directly to find the latest ones you may have a tricky time, but some basic googl'ing will get you there. The latest ones seem to run quite well for me, and fixed certain issues I was having with flash rendering, as well as opengl support. Using them I can fully run modern games like Diablo 3 and FIFA 12, as well as everything else I've thrown at it, however nobody should expect that the HD3000 chipset is suddenly any better than a bare minimum type of graphics device, and most graphics intensive programs will need to be turned down to minimum settings and the fan will need to be cranking pretty hard.

 

Anyways, I thought I would share that, because the Intel graphics drivers that Windows 8 updater finds are significantly worse than manually installing the latest ones provided directly from Intel's site.

Good find. There is some decent info on known issues in there. Looks like some is dated/fixed/not-effecting-all, but I'm glad to see that things are being addressed and that the X220T is officially on the Windows 8 compatible list (I suppose we all expected that, though).

 

They didn't mention the trackpad being FUBAR though, unless it's just me. Three different installation attempts at least, on each of the clean versions of Win 8  (RP, RTM enterprise, RTM Pro), and the beta Win 8 drivers Lenovo has listed for working with the X220T fail every part, every time. The Synaptics win 7 ones work, sort of. They work well in training me on using the trackpoint, anyways.

Single touch only obviously, but still cool :)


I'm trying to install Win8 RTM in Virtual Box on a Linux Mint host. Install starts then crashes with a "your PC must be restarted...hold down the power button..." error. So far I've seen people "fix" this by enabling Intel Virtualization Hardware in BIOS and ditto for Memory Execution Prevention. Both were already enabled and I still can't get past that error message. My X60 is a cousin to your tablet so I'm wondering what else could be wrong?
