Lenovo S205 (Unofficial) Windows 8.1 Drivers (2014-12-31)

Windows 8 Logo

I’ve created this post to provide you the latest Windows 8 Drivers. Since Lenovo doesn’t support Windows 8 on our device, these drivers are either taken directly from the vendors or from other Lenovo notebooks’ official support. The plan is to update this page regularly so it would function as an unofficial S205 – Windows 8 support page. I’m going to upload the drivers to Google Drive as well.

Big thx to Romagnolo1973 for his tips.

    an italian user (we talk about s205 in italian forum) give me the right working sound driver for win 8 (is the driver for Lenovo U300E that have the same soundcard, but they delete all drivers for U300 from lenovo site too)
    You can download it from here and upload into your googledrive space
    I was thinking you have Lenovo Energy Management in your google drive but is not mentioned here, if you need it or other driver I can ask for it in our italian forum
    Let me know in case

    I used to disable BT because I don’t use
    But BT Broadcom is correctly recognized from Win8 and in case, WindowsUpdate give you a new driver version when you update your pc, so is not a matter, is correctly detected and with last driver. But I’ve not use it so I can’t confirm is working 100%, but for sure Windows Broadcom Driver are better than old Lenovo Driver for 7

  6. no me funciona en windows 8,1. no me lo pesca el driver de audio. alguna sugerencia?

  7. Hi guys, thanks for drivers but I need Wifi driver for my Atheros AR9285 because my wifi is very slow. Any ides ?

      • I tried install driver for W7 but I have 50Mb/s internet and download on notebook is still 15Mb/s

      • I’m sorry. Have you seen this page?
        Unfortunately I don’t have this device so I don’t have a solution for your problem. It’s very strange that even cheaper wifi adapters have proper Windows 8/8.1 drivers but this Atheros device doesn’t. I hope that a new driver will arrive soon.

      • I hope too, because on my desktop I bought cheap wifi adapter and speed is really around 45Mb/s.

    I had tried the Energy Management driver and encounter a BSOD right away when I installed. I had to reinstall both my Windows 8.1 and Windows 7. So please check that driver again

    For those with the problem of Win 8 not recognizing the WLAN card, one solution is to set “NETWORK” first in the boot sequence in the BIOS.
