    Have you noticed this behaviour from the first day?
    Have you tried to reinstall OS using HDD recovery option to see if these issues persist with “factory settings”?

    If new driver didn't help best option is to test it with clean preinstalled OS. Recovery image is tested and contains all necessary drivers for notebook’s hardware.
    If this is an option for you please do this and let us know if the problem persists or not.

    Maybe some installed update is responsible for this.

    I have Satellite U500-1EX and until now everything works well.
