Unknown drivers on Lenovo SL500 for Windows7

Problem: Lenovo driver page do not list Base System Device drivers on drivers list

Unknown driver on Lenovo ThinkPad SL500,  2746-E5G was Ricoh SD/MMC Host Controller
and Memory stick Bus Adapter,
they can be found on separate web page from the driver list:

Also, installation will not be enough,
exe file (6ax102ww) should be unpacked (right-click on exe file and unzipp or unrar) and via Device manager search for drivers in subfolders:
MS and SDMMC because with selected option to search subfolders - windows will report that there are no drivers available!
User must point to exact location for the drivers.

Problem: Immediately after log in, printer becomes unavailable with spool error

This web helped:

Lexmark driver was installed before, it was old driver - once it was removed, error disappeared.
Start - Settings - Printers-
