good morning guys, I recently installed Windows 10 as a dual boot with my windows 8, fixed all the driver issues, disabled automatic updates and done every other recommended settings, the problem is despite having done all this, my data still drain (unlike Windows cool , each time i connect to the Internet with my modem, am still pondering what else is draining my data, apart from this Windows 10 is a sleek os, a fraction faster than my 8, and the best of all runs cooler and games run faster each time am gaming. just need to fix the data draining issue

It's probably the live tiles in the start menu. Right click on each one and turn it off

If your OEM (eg HP) has released WIN 10 drivers for your model then go to their site if not then head to the driver's manufacturer's website (eg Intel) and download it there

I just gave you Intel as an example. it all depends on the driver you want to download. Intel is just for display drivers. So which drivers are missing?

OK. First as you're not seeing "sleep" option, it shows you haven't installed a display driver. That will come when you install your display driver.

Secondly, to get hibernate option, click on your battery icon and open power settings from there. On the options on the left, you'll see "choose what the power button does" then click on it. Then look for "change settings which are currently unavailable" and click on it as well then scroll down and tick hibernate box then save. That's all

Go to lenovo or Intel website and search for graphic drivers relating to your laptop. model, processor and Windows bit type (whether 64 bit or 32bit). Install and update the drivers and everything should be back to normal.

The best and safest method is go to your manufacturer website and find specific drivers for your device there. Make sure you know your device model, processor type, bit type and so on. I'm sure hp, Dell, lenovo all have drivers for all their products on their websites.

If your system is working fine, then you have no need downloading drivers. Drivers are usually downloaded to fix certain issues.
