Re: x220 drivers windows preview

Hi ubc and welcome to the community,

 

System update isn't going to come up with anything anyway.  There are no drivers yet for Windows 8.

 

How about Windows update? Any yellow tags in Device Manager?

Re: x220 drivers windows preview

Did you manage to get the Hotkeys installed?  Or is that what you're using to adjust the volume?  

 

You could try to update the driver manually from Device Manager.  Don't let Windows install it, point the installer to the folder where the driver downloaded to.  It'll probably fail, but then Windows should offer to install it in compatibility mode.

Let it.

Re: x220 drivers windows preview

i tried running it in compatibility, reported device not found
selecting the drivers manually returns best audio device already installed etc.

Re: x220 drivers windows preview

I'm using the x220 also, and I ran into the same problems. However, I just manually installed everything importanty. Now it seems to be working rather good. Power manager is not working though.

 

One issue really bugs me. I have SSD, where everything is installed and then an HDD, which is mostly for data. The HDD doesn't seem to stop spinning at all, even though there's zero activity. Might be driver issue?
