[Fix] No Appropriate Driver to be installed for WiFi on Lenovo G50-70 Laptop

Even though Microsoft claims that their operating system is capable of installing most drivers of your laptops/notebooks, somehow, they are right to some extent. Yet, a majority of users suffer while upgrading or changing the operating system in their machines. Another issue I came across is many users are not able to get WiFi or Bluetooth working in Windows 7 or Windows 10 when degrading or upgrading from Windows 8 or 8.1. I can agree that many users have their specific requirements, or still, so many users are not happy using Windows 8.1 and wanted to shift back to Windows 7 or Windows 10. And upon downloading appropriate driver, when you try to install any, you’ll get error No Appropriate Driver to be installed.

[Fix] No Appropriate Driver to be installed for WiFi on Lenovo G50-70 Laptop

Usually the reason behind No Appropriate Driver to be installed is when the installer can’t find the specific hardware ID’s to install the necessary drivers. This issue is most common when your laptop has a combo adapter i.e. Intel Wireless + Qualcomm Atheros Bluetooth combo. This combo is ubiquitous in Lenovo G40-70 and G50-70 series laptops. So downloading and installing the appropriate driver should solve the issue for you:

Install all the above-said driver, and your laptop should be good to go for both Windows 7 and Windows 10. I could have listed all drivers, but that is not required, as Windows automatically pick other drivers.

Another thing to be taken care of, if you get the error:

That means you have switched off the wireless adapter from the hardware side. Hence look out for the WiFi/Bluetooth physical switch and turn it ON. If your laptop doesn’t have any physical switch, then after assuming that you have installed Energy Manager, press F7, it’ll give you the options to turn ON and OFF the wireless and Bluetooth on your laptop.

If your laptop doesn’t have a physical switch, then Go to

  • Start > type network and sharing center > Enter
  • Click Change Adapter Settings
  • Now, right-click on Wi-Fi connection and select Enable.
