    What drivers to install?


    I just recently got a new lenovo y50 and was wondering what drivers should I install and what bloatware should i uninstall?

    If all the hardware is working, then you don't need to install any drivers? What makes you think you should be installing drivers in a new PC?

    As to bloatware, anything that came preinstalled that you do not want or need is a candidate for being uninstalled.

    "New" computers that have been sitting at the retailer often have old drivers. I would start by going to the Lenovo site and comparing what you have installed versus what they have posted as the newest.

    Would get rid of as much bloatware as possible. I think I have only one program still from the junk that came with mine.

    When you have it the way you want make an image and then you have a nice clean re-install instead of the recovery partition that will put all the crap right back if you ever have to recover.
