If you want to keep your Lenovo ThinkPad in tip-top shape, you should keep all your device drivers up to date.
There are two ways to update your drivers:
- Manually update your Lenovo ThinkPad drivers
- Automatically update your Lenovo ThinkPad drivers (Recommended)
Option 1: Manually update your Lenovo ThinkPad drivers
You’ll need some computer skills and patience to update your drivers this way, because you need to find the exactly right drivers online, download them and install them step by step.
You can first head to Lenovo’s official website and select your model of Lenovo ThinkPad. Then check out the section for driver downloads and search for the specific drivers you want to update. Be sure to choose only drivers that’re compatible with your flavor of Windows version, and then download and install them manually.
Finally, restart your computer for the changes to take effect.
Option 2: Automatically update your Lenovo ThinkPad drivers (Recommended)
If you don’t have the time, patience or computer skills to update your ThinkPad drivers manually, you can do it automatically with Driver Easy. You don’t need to know exactly what system your computer is running, you don’t need to risk downloading and installing the wrong driver, and you don’t need to worry about making a mistake when installing. Driver Easy handles it all.
- Download and install Driver Easy.
- Run Driver Easy and click Scan Now. Driver Easy will then scan your computer and detect any problem drivers.
- Click Update next to any flagged devices to automatically download the correct version of their drivers, then you can install them manually. Or click Update All to automatically download and install them all automatically. (This requires the Pro version – you’ll be prompted to upgrade when you click Update All. You get full support and a 30-day money back guarantee.)
- Restart your ThinkPad to finish the process.
