This is what you do as you are venturing into what they call self support. Supply a link to the driver page and I'll take a look and see if it's one I would use.

Lenovo driver support

Plug in your laptop type, model #, etc. Caution, some models have a number of sub-species. It's best if you have your original receipt with the exact model.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
