Once you install the video drivers, multi-media drivers, controllers for the system whatever is available there isn't more much you can do. The system will function just fine the way it is; Unless you're getting a blue screen then i suggest:
1. Download the drivers from Lenovo IBM's Thinkpad website. 2. Uninstall any drivers from your device manager that show a red or yahoo sign. 3. Open the downloaded file and let it install by itself. 4. Restart the computer
*Note: the files will be downloaded automatically in a file where the computer is automatically going to open. So do not, I repeat DO NOT change the file directory to a different location the computer will not recognize it. Once installed the computer will tell you that the drivers are install to that device. Check your device manager to make sure all drivers were install if no warning signs show up, then you're done. Good luck!
