Hey all,

Today my new (used) Lenovo Y50-70 Touch (2014 Edition with 860m) came in the mail. I was pretty excited about that. But soon after opening it up, getting the laptop ready, and installing games, I realized that there was no GPU reconized. Only the Intel HD Graphics 6400. Obviously, I was very displeased. Lenovo support was unhelpful because, lo and behold, the warranty had just ended. Great. So, basically I paid for a gaming laptop I can't play games on, because there's no 860m I was promised (Or at least it's not being recognized). Advice on where to go next?

Other info: I'm running 8.1 because that's the default OS it shipped with. Also every time I attempted to update drivers they refused to budge and update, even the ones off of Lenovo's site.

Any drivers I try to install, including the ones on Lenovo's site, refuse to work and complete the installation. The laptop works fine besides the given issue, just no gaming is possible. In fact, I'm on the said laptop right now.

Looks like this laptop will be RMA'd within less than 24 hours. Unfortunate. I guess I'll use the opportunity to upgrade to a new 2015 model. Thanks for the responses.
