    Refreshing Windows 10 on a Thinkpad

    I have bought a Thinkpad e570 on eBay and the seller has Refreshed Windows 10 Professional. I will receive the computer in a few days and would like to know what to expect. Should I expect to have to download drivers? Will the original Lenovo programs still be on the laptop? Thanks.

    You should not have to download drivers, unless the previous owner installed a "vanilla" Windows 10 and did not load the drivers. Whether or not all the original Lenovo programs will still be installed depends on how the owner did the "refresh".

    Lenovo does a good job of keeping updated drivers available through its support pages. If you visit the T570 support pages you should find everything you need. Also, here's a link to the T570 drivers & software page: Error.

    PS: I own two Lenovos at present, a T520 and an X 220 Tablet. I use their System Update utility on both machines to good effect to keep their drivers up-to-date. You can download that tool from the afore-linked downloads page under the ThinkVantage Technology heading, Lenovo System Update for Windows 10 item.
