My Yoga 2 Pro is closing on 3 years old. A few weeks ago the Backspace, \, and Enter keys began to work when they felt like working. It was fine for a week and now it's happening again. If I use the pop up keyboard, no problems, all keys work.I've air sprayed the keyboard to clear any foreign bodies. Any ideas on where the problem originates and possible solutions?  Thanks in advance.

There was an earlier post asking this question. I had the problem and was able to solve the problem by using the customize keyboard function. To the up arrow key, I assigned the command LineUp. To the down arrow key, I assumed the command LineDown. Worked like a charm.

I just purchased this laptop about a month ago for school and it has been working great. However, I have run into an issue where the trackpad does not work while pressing other keys on the keyboard. Things I've Tried: - PalmCheck, there is apparently no Synaptics touchpad driver on this computer, nor can I install one as far as I've seen. - Registry Editor, I tried following the path that several support sides recommend, but there is no "Elantech" anywhere. Computer is running Windows 10 Home 64-bit.

Just got this Yoga 3 14 series laptop for cheap from a local shop, and it works great on Windows 10 except for one minor but annoying thing. In the Lenovo settings app, the keyboard settings for switching between F keys and the hot keys being on the function row are reversed. If I set it to have hot keys without FN, it instead does the F row functions without FN.If I set it to have F keys without FN, it instead does the hot key functions without FN. Anyone have this problem before, and is there a fix?

Hi, I completely reinstalled windows 8.1 pro on my ThinkPad Yoga. After that I installed all drivers including updates provided by Microsoft and Lenovo (using Lenovo system updater 5). But I can't use all FN keys (meaning the special functions like opening the windows 8 settings pane bar...) Also the orange led is lighted up on the F1 key (I guess this should indicate that my speakers are muted - but this led is always on). What should I do or what do I have to install in addition to use all FN special keys including the correct indication of the mute-LED?

Hi, The "5" key and the "L" key on my X1 Yoga Gen 2 seem to be slightly lower than the rest. This causes the sound to be different, as if it's sticking a bit to the bottom. I didn't find any threads relating to this issue, so I was wondering if anyone else has this problem? Thanks.

Dear Lenovo, How can I have both Esc and function keys work normally in Yoga 700? That is, as in any normal computer keyboard where Esc is Esc, and F1 is F1, etc. If I set 'hot key' mode in bios then Esc is normal, but function keys act as hot keys.If I set 'function key' mode in bios then function keys are normal, but Esc is paper display toggle. I don't think it's too much to ask. Best regards.

I've had my X1 Yoga 3rd Gen for a couple of months, generally very happy with it. Yesterday I noticed the right arrow key (bottom right of the keyboard, under the PgDn key) is broken - not completely, but the left half of it stays depressed when pushed down. Aside from the fact that I'm unhappy this has happened so soon after purchase (and my sense that it may be a function of the retractable keys and that there's more of the same to come), I'd like to know (a) if these keys can be replaced and (b) what I need to purchase and from where. I've had a look at various sites including http://www.laptopkey.com/ and none have any specific reference to the X1 Yoga 3rd Gen. Can anyone help please?

Since your machine is new or at least less than 1 year old it should be under warranty.  If it was me i would call support to have keyboard replaced.  I have never had a key fall off but have had keys that were "overly" sensitive.  I would hit a nearby key and it would trigger the key next to it as well.  Lenovo replaced the keyboard and problem was solved.

I'm running Win ME and just ran Spyware Doctor to check for malware. After the scan, I went to word and find that now, when I click on the Tab key, the cursor doesn't move to the next field. Instead, it functions as though I pressed Alt Tab and moves me to the previous screen. I would like to restore the Tab key to it's normal functioning so I don't have to press the space bar to move the cursor to tab stops.

Just got a new Yoga 910. One thing is driving me crazy -- it appears the function keys by default require pressing the Fn button. I don't use the alternate things like airplane mode and speaker volume as much and would prefer to have function keys primary and then press fn keys for the quick keys. There is mention of reversing the fn key in the bios, but under configuration I have no hotkey option. I'm running bios 2JCN39WW which appears to be the latest. How do I switch the hotkey / function key priority so I can use F4 and F2 without holding the fn button?

Hello - We have owned this Lenovo Yoga (product specs below) for about 3 years with no issues. suddenly, a handful of keys stopped working from the keyboard.  I can type just fine using an external keyboard, or by using the screen keyboard. The letters that don't work: g, i, o and p.   I updated the bios and all other drivers from the Lenovo site, hoping it was just a driver issue, but it seems pretty obvious that it's a hardware issue.  I deleted the kayboard from device manager and re-installed, as well.  I have swapped out Lenovo keyboards before, but this one looks different.  Using an external keyboard is not a long term possibility for this user.   Any thoughts?  Thank you all!Device:Yoga Laptop (ThinkPad)Machine Type: 20CD00BYUSOS: Windows 10 (64bit)Processor: 1x Intel Core i7-4600U Processor(i7-4600U): Memory: 1x 8GB PC3-12800

When I press the F3 key, I need the Yoga 920 to interpret this as "F3" and not "Increase sound volume." In the past, certain Lenovo notebooks had a BIOS setting that let you reconfigure the function keys to do just that. I don't believe the Yoga 920 has this BIOS setting (why don't all Yoga models have a similar BIOS structure is beyond me). I have an excellent Microsoft external keyboard that allows you to lock the function key, simply by pressing "Fn" (a small light turns on in the "Fn" key, similar to the "CapsLk" key.) Any suggestions? It can't be this difficult, can it?

Hi waqas_a  , 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
 
Ideally it would be best to isolate it with an external USB keyboard and check if same thing would happen .
 
How about on the onscreen keyboard under ease of access.
 
From how you describe it , seems tending to be more of a mechanical contact issue .
Noting the proximity of n-m , v-b , spacebar - enter . 
 
You can air can clean it for particles causing this . Any incident of liquid spill?
You can check on the hardware manual from the support site for guide if you have the shill and tools to dissassemble the keyboard for cleaning else if you have an active warranty do call in tech support for assistance / local service center.
 
Update us how it goes.
