Q: Lenovo X1 brightness problem - Graphics HD driver ...

Hi guys, I am trying to install the old Intel HD Graphics driver 15.40.13.4331 because the constant brightness of the screen is killing my eyes. It's the last possible solution there is, I've installed patches, done everything I can possibly think of. My X1 is brand new and the brightness issue popped up as soon as I updated it for the first time. Windows won't let me install the older version of the driver. Please, lots of karma and positive thoughts your way if you can help me out on this. have tried phoning into the help line and they really don't give the impression they care, one of the call centre respondees said to me "Well, if your screen is working what's the problem?". First time buyer of a Lenovo product - not impressed thus far.

Hi
 
Recently bought a Lenovo A740 wich I thought had the Nvidia GTX graphic card. When trying to update the driver it cannot be found. I also have a "unrecognized 3D unit" on PCI slot 4.  How can I check if I even have the card? Its a model F0AM00A1MT-G

Hello!
There are countless threads with people who can't change brightness on Windows 10. Easily solved, switch to the generic Windows graphics driver. However, to me this solution removes the Sleep option in Power menu. Only Hibernate is left, but I don't want to use it. I just bought a small SSD for the OS and I want to save the write cycles.

So as the situation stands, I can either choose to have the Sleep option with Intel Graphics 4000 driver, or have the brightness control with the Windows graphics driver. I chose the former, because I use sleep a few times a day, but don't change brightness very often. But I want both.

I am just checking, is there any option to have both sleep power setting AND working brightness control in Windows 10? Is Microsoft or Intel working on fixing the problem?
- I use two graphics drivers at once - NVidia and Intel 4000. Can't have just NVidia, that removes both brightness and sleep.
- Yes, I have the latest Intel 4000 driver.
- Yes, I have disabled adaptive brightness.
- No, I can't adjust brightness manually, if I try that, the screen is totally dimmed and I have to switch the drivers to fix it.
- I have Lenovo Z500, Windows 10 with the Anniversary package - didn't help.
- I made a clean install of W10 after my old W10 install got stuck in update-remove update loop.

Hi, I have a M30-70 with Windows 8.1. The shortcut keys for adjusting screen brightness don't work and when I go into the control panel I can change the % brightness bar, but nothing happens. For example now it says I have 100 % but the screen is still stuck at about 40.  This whole problem occured yesterday. I have tried rebooting the computer but doesn't work. Any advice? =)

Hello,  I have the Lenovo y40 with the intel i7-4510 and wthe AMD Radeon R9 M275 graphics card. About 1 month ago, I was in the middle of a game when my computer just shut down and gave me a blue screen. Since then, I have been unable to run my computer with the graphics driver enabled. At first, I thought it may be a driver issue and have tried both the Lenovo drivers from their page (which seemed a bit outdated) as well as the AMD drivers from the website, neither of which have worked.  Furthermore, I did do a fresh install today in hopes that would fix it, however, it did not. I get the same thing, the moment it recognizes that the AMD card is working I get a BSOD.  Some of the error codes that I have gotten with the BSODs are as follow: THREAD_STUCK_IN_DEVICE_DRIVER, BAD_POOL_HEADER, KERNAL_SECURITY_CHECK_FAILURE, SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION, BAD_POOL_CALLER, VIDEO_TDR_FAILURE, and KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED (NTFS.sys).

Hi, I have also posted this in Lenovo's forum, but perhaps someone here have a solution as well. Recently my HDD crashed, so I plugged in a new HDD with a fresh Windows 7 Professional 64bit. I am trying to install the driver for my ATI HD 5730. I downloaded the driver from the Lenovo support page, installed it, and it installed sucessfully. I clicked "view log", all successful;I went to the device manager, it recognized the HD 5730 as well as the Intel Graphic. CCC is in the context manual of the desktop, but it doesn't open. However, the resolution of the screen remains at 1024 x 768. When I restart the computer, it says something along the line of "No ATI graphics driver is installed, or the ATI driver is not functioning." I tried to uninstall it, from program files, then cleaned the rest with Driver Sweeper, and then cleaned registry with Glary Uitility. Reinstalled, and same result. I even tried to uninstall all display drivers, and let Windows find the "new" hardware. Windows recognized and install the driver for the Intel Graphic, but failed to install anything for the 5730. I searched the web and I can't seem to find a solution that works. Any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance.

I have been using this y410p to play games for almost three years now, and a small set of problems has slowly started to build.  As of now, most of my games will crash within 5-10 minutes of starting, commonly accompanied by the error "Display driver has stopped responding and recovered". Most of the time, the game will just freeze with the audio continuing and I am able to close it. Sometimes however, I get much more severe crashes, where the sound over 5 seconds becomes extremely distorted, and my mouse movement becomes increasingly laggy until the whole thing just freezes, with a monotone buzzing sound coming from the speakers.  I have noticed that the display driver crashes generally occur when my disk randomly spiked to 100%. Even a single second of it can cause my whole computer to crash. As of now, I can't play games that my computer has easily been able to run before. I've tried using IdeaFan to keep temperatures down, but I don't think it's temperatures causing it, seeing as I've seen it happen multiple times when the temperature is only around 50. If any of you have an idea of what could be causing this, please respond.  Also of note, I am running Windows 10, which I have heard can be problematic for the y410p. Could that be causing the issue?

Hi, I'm having extremely bad problems. I bought this laptop especially for the dedicated GPU and I play games such as Sims 3, Sims 4 and GTA V and even though they're set to "high performance" in AMD, it still uses the integrated GPU. Apparently it has something to do with OpenGL. If they won't let the GPU be used with OpenGL, then what's the point in there being the GPU? A lot of games use OpenGL..... Is there a way to force my computer to use the dedicated GPU? There's no fixed option in BIOS. Only UMA or Switchable. I've tried UMA and that disables the dedicated GPU completely. It disappears from device manager. Thanks.

Hello everyone, Since March 2016 I have a Lenovo G50-80 80R0, with i5 processor 5200U, 8GB Ram and Intel Graphics HD5500. I've always used Windows 10 in the factory installation and achieved considerable graphics performance, from 60 to 80 fps in the Counter Strike Global Offensive game. I bought a 120GB Kingston SSD and did a clean install of the system on the new disk, using the original HD as a filesystem. However, I noticed that the graphics quality in games has dropped considerably, going from 20 to 30 fps in the same game. I do not know what might have happened, since I installed all Lenovo-supplied drivers, updated Windows 10 to Anniversary Update, and disabled the Xbox DVR. I already rode the Intel driver update system and also tried the latest version, still in beta. All tested drivers gave the same result, even after the full reinstallation. The current driver version is: Intel Corporation 20.19.15.4501Processor: i5 5200U 2.2GHz 2.19GHzMemory: 8GBSystem: Windows 10 64-bit In addition, the system had a considerable improvement in performance, connecting in a matter of seconds and initiating programs with agility and stability. Although I do not run heavy applications, I use this note for web development and any games. If anyone has any ideas, I appreciate it!

Graphics drivers are verified by OEMs to make sure, they are compatible with their systems. Once you installed OEM verified driver, you won't be able to install generic driver easily. In order to install it, you'll need to remove all traces of older driver(s) and prevent Windows Update from automatically installing OEM verified driver again. You can use Display Driver Uninstaller, which will take care of these steps for you. Once done, you will be able to install latest generic driver version without an issue. Just be aware, that there might be some problems, as driver wasn't verified to be compatible with your system.

Hey guys, hoping someone here can help me find a solution to this problem.

I believe it may be linked to an incident a few days ago when I was watching a video in windows media player, and the screen suddenly flashed and I received a notification at the bottom of the screen indicating that my display driver stopped responding but recovered successfully.

Since then on two occasions, I left my laptop idol and when returning to my laptop I find my screen is a mostly white with a strange blur of colors, its somewhat hard to explain. The first time it happened I simply shut down my system and rebooted and everything is fine. The second time it occurred I hit alt+ctrl+delete and it corrected itself bringing me to the screen lock the computer, switch user, etc..

Could this problem possibly be solved by updating my device drivers? I'm on a relatively new (I've owned it for about 3 months) laptop with a fairly fresh installation from 3 weeks ago.

I recently have taken over my wife's laptop, as it is considerably newer than mine I wanted to see if it could play any relatively older video games. Unfortunately the graphics card was, for some reason, under preforming. It was a Intel Graphics HD 4000, according to the online specs it was more than capable. However when I tried to update it via Intels official website I received the error "this version is not validated to your .." I cant remember the exact wording. What I do know is that the intel support forums said that this error message means that the OEM has customized their driver, thereby making it incompatible with Intels drivers. The forum suggested manually uninstalling the OEM driver and then manually installing their driver. I uninstalled the OEM driver, however I now cant install the intel driver, or reinstall the OEM driver from the Asus website. I get an error message when I try to install the Intel driver, it says my pc does not meet the minimum requirements. I just don't know what to do. My laptop is a S300CA-BBI5T01.

Howdy,

I cannot see any video card drivers for that model on Asus site...and this is a notebook.

If you would like to start with a clean slate on that Notebook you can try Using Recovery Partition

This will DELETE EVERTHING ON THE HARD DRIVE so backup anything you want to keep on another place if you choose to use this method.

The idea would be it should be back to the way it was when it was bought, but remember it is a notebook and games will have problems on it.

Here is a link below for Using the Recovery Method. It says this is available on selected models so yours might not have it.

ATI display driver setup opened up to install my driver, but I got the following error: "Setup was unable to complete the installation. Try to setup your display adapter with a standard VGA driver before running setup". I then disabled my display driver, then tried the setup again. Still no luck.

Any help appreciated, thanks in advance people.

Here is some information about my computer system:

After spending hours and hours on the phone with EA, Dell, and AMD I could not find a way to run Starwars Battlefront 2 on my brand new gaming laptop. The problem begins when I attempt to launch Battlefront 2, an error message appears saying I need to update my graphics driver to at least 17.7.1. The thing is, according to Dell, I have the latest driver (17.1.1) they have available. EA support had me download the newest one directly from AMD's website but it wouldn't work with my computer at all. According to AMD, I needed to get it from Dell. According to Dell it isn't available and they don't know when or if it will be. This is beyond frustrating. EA did agree to refund me but I really just want to play the game.

One Dell rep did tell me if I paid for "Premium Tech Support" or something that cost hundreds they might be able to send me a newer driver not yet available on their website. Are you kidding?
Does anyone know when new drivers are released on Dell's website? How long do I have to wait for them to catch up so that I cant play this game that came out a while ago?
 
From what I found in a few searches is that maybe I can override the new drivers requirement through the registry, after all Battlefield 4 and Battlefront 1 worked just fine with my current driver and they run on the same game engine--Frostbite. Now I can't even try that because EA already refunded me and removed access to the game. Is there anything that can be done?... Read more

i reformatted my computer today, (due to virus) and seemed to be working fine until i tried to install my nvidia graphics driver, it got half way thru and then a command promt opened and the address of it was C://windows/system32/expand.exe. hundreds of files rushed thru the command promt and then it said it had successfully installed the driver.
When i rebooted the screen went blank after the windows loading screen, i tried rebooting a few times but the screen stayed blank. I then rebooted into safe mode and uninstalled the nvidia driver, it worked fine after that but i still cant install the nvidia graphics driver.
i have the latest driver and am running windows xp pro. any advice??

ps. the grapics card is a 7600GS

Thank-you all
