i updated a customers new laptop, yesterday with Windows 8.1 did as Microsoft advised, fully updating Windows 8, before going to the AppStore and install Windows 8.1.

but now, with the AMD Graphic Driver installed from AMD's website, it don't wake up properly, it only shows black screen :(

to make it more bad, this laptop is on Lenovo's "Windows 8.1 Upgrade Capable Systems" List

the list: http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/research/hints-or-tips/detail.page?DocID=HT079684

and i don't have a "System Restore point" from before Windows 8.1 got installed, but i do have one from before installing AMD Graphic Driver but that don't help much either, and no i can't use Lenovo Recovery Discs because there are none, with the laptop and i ordered them through IBM Global Services, but still i won't have them until next week, and i would like to have Windows 8.1 up and running, bcs i have tried it at home, with Nvidia graphics of cause because i don't use AMD/ATi at home and i haven't dumped into any issues at all.

So a little help would be nice.

and too add now i tried Lenovo's AMD Driver, and just blackscreen instantly when Windows 8.1 starts up :mad:

seriously Lenovo makes a really good and solid product here and with a nice pricetag you get i7-4600u, 8gb memory, 256gb Samsung SSD, Intel HD 4500/AMD Radeon HD 8670M graphics and they fuck up Windows yet again, i heard some a college that it was the same when Service Pack 1 to Windows 7 came out, that many of Lenovo's computere didn't work properly afterwards, they had problems.

I have E530 Edge. After the update to 8.1, my PC resumes properly from sleep, BUT it doesn't turn on as it used to after I shut down and close the lid. After this thread I am guessing something is wrong with Lenovo on a little bit larger scale. I suggest we wait for a new BIOS, fix OR Windows 8.1 installation disk with the update inside, so that we won't have to go through the update procedure again.

well i figured out later that the "S3-S440" i got and Lenovo told me it was for china/asia only but i got it and when they got proff of they that didn't say much more, but the "S3" version ain't Windows 8.1 compatible for the moment which is a pain in the ass bcs the Windows 8 keeps saying to be updated to 8.1.
