The uninstall driver is of Power Manager

 

Once the software become available for Windows 8 then you can download and install the software.

 

 

Best Regards,

Tanuj

Re: Drivers missing for Windows 8 Consumer review

Any dates on that? I'm really missing the power manager tool! Other than that, I'm currently rather satisfied with W8.

Re: Drivers missing for Windows 8 Consumer review

I'm not sure what device you're on, Jotolli, but I was able to get power manager to work in Windows 8 on the X220T. Are you making sure to manually install the driver for it first, and then the PM, then reboot after both are on?

Re: Drivers missing for Windows 8 Consumer review

I too am missing several drivers according to Device Manager.

 

On my X220, I performed a clean install of Win 8 and used only the stock drivers. Any ideas as to what's missing.

When Windows 8 is released by Microsoft.  If you choose to run pre-release operating systems software, you need to be patient.

 

Cheers,

Re: Drivers missing for Windows 8 Consumer review

The Base System Device refers to the Ricoh Multi Card Reader Driver Driver.  The Win 7 version works just fine in Win 8 on my T420. Go here to get it:  http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/downloads/detail.page?DocID=DS014960
