    Last double post: In fact, what I'm reading on the internet is that Windows Update isn't actually activated in Safe Mode. So yeah...

    Go ahead and try the driver you found on the Lenovo website.

    I found the Nvidia driver on the Dell website so I installed that one but nothing changed. It was the police ransomware virus that I had, which apparently causes severe damages to the OS. So in the end I 'accepted defeat' and handed in my laptop for a clean install. It seemed the easiest way. Anyway, I'd like to thank you for the time & effort you've put in to this, you guys definitely do great work here.
