hello hello,

I just upgraded my lenovo z500 non-touch to windows 10, and i've been experiencing some problems. first, which is the most annoying, my start menu wont come up, i restarted a number of times and i tried the thing you copy in powershell and still didnt work. and also my brightness level is stuck, if i hit the + or - brightness on keyboard the brightness level meter on my screen changes but the actual brightness level of my screen doesnt move.

Use CtrlAltDel to bring up task manager, if you can't see task manager, BEFORE CLICKING ANYWHERE ELSE ON SCREEN, use windows key plus the right and/or left arrow keys to switch task manager between "monitors" (even if you only have one)
You can use Task Manager to force explorer.exe to start running.

I solved brightness problem.

1. Download Lenovo Z500 Win 8.1 Intel HD driver http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/products/laptops-and-netbooks/ideapad-z-series-laptops/ideapad-z500-notebook

2. Download Video Features(Intel HD Graphics 4000) http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/downloads/ds102364

3. Copy folders from Lenovo Z500 Intel driver 9.17.10.3223 (only folders) to Video Features(Intel HD Graphics 4000) and rewrite

4. Video Features(Intel HD Graphics 4000) - setup - install video drive and brightness regulation
works
