Touch pad driver use Elan

Graphic driver:
I went ahead and uninstall the original Radeon software and install the win 10 software (425MB). It did a complete install and updated the video driver.

My graphic driver is date 11/1/2019 version 26.20.13031.10003

Chrome youtube playback issue:
Installed H264ify extension for Chrome to optimize the GPU of this unit instead of using all the CPU's resource.

Chrome Hardware Acceleration turn on/off

For better coloring screen:
Radeon setting and turned on the Virtual Super Resolution (VSR) and the color is completely different.

Windows Reinstall-Clean(A lot of people contributed this and put together, thx)
Step 1: download the Windows Media Creation Tool [microsoft.com]
-- plug in your USB, run the Media Creation Tool and select "Create installation media for another PC" and select version Windows 10 Pro x64

Now you have a live USB to install Windows


Step 2: download the Lenovo eMMC driver [lenovo.com]
-- open File Explorer and navigate to your Downloads folder
-- click the File menu (top left corner) > Open Windows Powershell
-- copy/paste the following command to extract the drivers:

.\annt06ww.exe /verysilent /dir=c:\lenovo_14w /extract="YES"

This puts 4 files in a folder called "lenovo_14w" on your C drive
-- When you install Windows, delete the existing partitions, click "Load driver", and navigate to this folder on your USB and select the .inf file to load your eMMC driver

Step 3: download the Qualcomm WLAN Driver [lenovo.com]
-- move this file from your Downloads folder to your "lenovo_14w" folder on the C drive that you created in Step 2
-- drag/drop to copy this whole folder to your USB

Now restart your PC and tap the F12 key while it boots
-- select your USB key from the boot manager menu

Note: Others to consider:
When downloading touch pad dirver use Elan.
When finish all windows updates use Windows 10 Debloater to get rid of junks.

:
It was slow for me too, guys, but if you tweak the system, allocate virtual space for ram, etc., It is actually pretty decent...

My worries were ram and hd, I fixed those though, thankfully.

My secret?:
Tweek (not the powder or rocks, ie ur settings, fix them n00bz)
Create virtual memory from the he, I allocated 16gb so for me I have 20gb of ram on this, 4gb + 16 virtual
Get large memory card, I have 256gb and may upgrade, as needed

...

Linux Distro(installed to eMMC not live usb):

Quote from SennamonTea
:
Ok so I've had this laptop for a few days now and tested almost all the LInux Distros for those interested.

Here are the list of the best experiences right after install(all are 64bit):

#1 Zorin Lite 15

#1 Xubuntu 18.04, only edit you will need is change touchpad behavior to disable trackpad while typing(enable and set it to 0.2 seconds, increase time if you need to). Other minor gripe is it doesn't come with htop, but it'll prompt you in terminal on how to install. Super fast start up(~5seconds to log in from cold)

#1*Peppermint 10, this distro actually works the best right out of the box, all hotkeys work and everything. HOWEVER, this is a big however. I cannot get this distro to install, it errors out at configing since it doesn't have the controller for the eMMc drive. If you can get it to install I figure it'd be just as good if not better than Xubuntu

#2 Manjaro 18.1.2XFCE, very good but has some screen flicker at max brightness and slower than Xubuntu. Also sometimes on start up it has graphical glitches.

#3 Lubuntu 18.10. Everything good except one thing, which for me is a pretty big no, default driver for touchpad does not enable tap to click on touchpad, I didn't stay long enough to enable it.

#4 Lubuntu Mate18.04.3 :good but slower than previous distros, also has more screen tear for me on youtube

#5 Crunchbang++, keeps freezing and having issues

#6 Debian cannot start
Edit: I haven't tried installing to the eMMC, but the machine runs Debian stable reasonably well installed on a USB 3.0 dongle. I highly recommend the 5.2 backports kernel & the backports firmware-atheros package. Bluetooth is working.

#7Bodhi LInux 5.0.0: freezing/slow/slow startup

#8 PopOS: I tried a heavier OS for fun, this seems to work just fine, a little slower than the rest but as expected for a heavier specced OS

I didn't try Linux mint or Ubuntu, those are heavier distros that I did not want to touch. They usually work with everything but not my purpose of using this laptop. Hope this helps you.

:
MX-Linux installs perfectly on my two lw14s. Even the hotkeys work at the first boot and hardware video decoding works beautifully without requiring any tweak when I tried VLC or YouTube.
Zorin Lite 15 works
Linux Mint Xfce with several tries would work, may be next release would be better.
Ubuntu Mate 19.10 installs smoothly.
A lot of distros have problem dealing with the emmc/controller from other user's test.

Interested in Linux and a beginner a quick reading article wrote by Gnudist,

Cloudyready (Chromebook)
You can install cloudyready

https://www.neverware.com/freedownload

to make it a chromebook (touchpad does not work as of now). You may need this hack:

This will make it better than most of sub $200 chromebooks in the market.

Eish brother why you gotta say stuff like that. One of my co-worker was poor and had no internet at home so her daughter used to goto McDonalds to do school homework. This laptop is great for some parents, like who can't afford expensive laptops for kids.

When your kids tries to load youtube website and it takes so damn long. Windows is just a hog with these low specs.

You're better off getting your child a chromebook in the same price range.

Just watch this small 3 minute youtube video about it - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5_XRC659fY0

I bought this laptop previously and while it is lower on tech spec side, it's build quality is quite amazing for use by kids.
