Yoga 14 (20fy) Pen stops working, needs reboot

Q: Yoga 14 (20fy) Pen stops working, needs reboot

Weird issue, my Yoga 14 loses the active pen if I switched to Yoga mode. It can also lose it if it comes out of sleep. A reboot brings it back so I don't think its hardware. Once its back it keeps working unless I switch from Yoga mode or back to regular. Any ideas?

Just picked up a new Thinkpad Yoga. Definitely thrilled by the specifications, it seems to be the perfect laptop for me combining dedicated graphics, 2 in 1 capability, and most importantly, a wacom pen. However, upon getting it home, I find the pen doesn't work whatsoever. Curious, I went back to Best Buy and tried the pen on the display model. That one doesn't work either.Do these have some sort of widespread issue with the digitizer pens not working? Is there any known fix for this?

Yoga 14 20FY is the Best Buy edition. Running Windows 10 Home 64-bit.
 
I looked around and did not see mention of this particular issue.
 
Not exactly sure what triggered this, but it seems like a Windows update may be the culprit. My laptop keyboard has completely stopped working. The trackpoint and trackpad work fine. External keyboard works fine. I have done the System update numerous times and don't see any outstanding updates at all.
 
Have tried to disable the PS2 keyboard driver. It goes ahead and installs a Microsoft driver (dated some time in 2006) for this. Have the Bios updated to the most recent and then installed HotKey drivers - in fact, every update listed (whether critical, recommended or optional).
 
Is there anything else left for me to try before I try to open up the case? Thanks for anything that has helped anybody else with this issue.

I am currently typing this on a bluetooth keyboard attatched to my phone...  Thank God for the keyboard.   Anyway my laptop is obviously down.  It started off where it wouldn't turn on at all.  I simply got 3 lights on the thinkpad when plugging it in, and two lights when trying to get it to turn on.  Then after letting it sit for a while, it would turn on and boot up, only to shut off after 20 seconds or so...  Then it finally booted all the way up, and I was extremely happy...  I even journaled about how happy I was on my journal software on my computer, but after shutting it down all that happens is a solid thinkpad light when I turn it on, and the keyboard flashes like normal then...  no screen comes on.   I thought to myself, at least I have a backup tablet...  I guess I had it sitting in its case too long because it seems that the battery is gone on it and wont even turn on so I am left using my tablets keyboard with my phone to write to you fine people.  Like I said, I am very grateful for this keyboard making my situation much more bearable. Please help.  I am thinking all signs are pointing towards some sort of motherboard failure, but am hoping that there is a wizard in the forums that may be able to wave a magic wand.  I have already pushed the static discharge button around 101 times.

I wanted to know if this was a known issue with this model.  Since I bought this system last November, the display has been a problem.  Besides, what I consider to be severe, light leakage in the corners of the display - any time I even slightly touch the back of the display assembly to adjust the angle there is an extremely noticeable rippling effect in the display.  I have never seen a display with this severe of a ripple effect.  I've sent the system in twice for service and I don't think the technician understands what the issue is or the person that wrote the ticket did not explain the symptoms correctly.  On top of the light leakage never getting fixed, it seems the rippling effect has gotten worse every time I sent in the system.  I have extended my warranty in the hopes of getting this issue resolved one day but I can't seem to find anyone that has had a similar issue.

Hi, I am join the Lenovo forums to seek assitance with an issue with my Thinkpad Yoga 14. I recently purchased the notenook from Best Buy and it has been great.  But there's an intermitten issue with the screen going black. My theory was that the ambient light sensor is what tells the laptop it's closed, and it was getting obscured, causing my screen to turn off. This issue occurs when I am using it in tablet mode and during the process of the folding the screen back. The screen is fine in laptop mode, unless I adjust the angle of the screen.  So it seems every time I place my hand on the screen to draw, or fold the hinge, the screen will turn black. I have taken the following steps:-Updated Windows and all my Lenovo Apps.-Changing power options to 'Do Nothing' when lid closes.  Does anyone else have this issue? I am hoping this is not a hardware issue   Thanks everyone.

I am fairly knowledgeable with both Windows and networking, but this one's got me scratching my head!

I have a fairly clean Vista SP1 install on my desktop. There aren't many applications installed. My internet connection always seems to stop working after web surfing for a while - sometimes 5 minutes, sometimes half an hour. (Doesn't matter whether I'm in IE, Firefox, or Opera) Nothing restores the connection other than a reboot, which I have been doing at least once a day.

All other machines on my network are Win XP, and they all work fine even when this Vista internet connection stops working. Also, file shares to and from the Vista machine work okay even when I can't get out to the internet.

Things I tried:
-Pinged various websites
-ipconfig /release /renew etc....
-rebooted router
-disabled AVG antivirus and ZoneAlarm firewall
-Did a spyware scan with several programs - CLEAN!

Also, I should point out that this machine has been working fine for the year or so that I've had it. These problems have started in the past month or so, although I can't remember anything I did that would have caused any issues.

Any suggestions? Thank you very much! Also, I tried using OpenDNS and am getting the same results if it makes a difference.

I just recently purchased a Yoga 14 primarily for the active digitizer screen so I could do design work on the go. My laptop has the pen that comes with it, and when I take it out of the slot, it works fine. However, when I use it for roughly 3 or 4 minutes, it just stops reading on the screen. I can reinsert it into the slot, take it out, and it will work for another 3 or 4 minutes before I have to do it again. It never displays a low pen battery indicator, and every time I check the battery using the application, it says its good at 90 to 100 percent. I have updated drivers as well, but still can't fix the issue. The touchscreen otherwise works perfectly when it is active, and always responds to touch. Seeing as I purchased it for the ability to draw with the pen, it's kind of inconvenient that it works for very little time.

Windows 8.1 Pro x64
Yoga 14 (20FY), two weeks old.

Installed Win 8.1 from bootable USB when I got it. Installed drivers I needed from the Lenovo driver site. There is no sensor driver on their site.

I have tried it only in tent and tablet mode as it?s supposed to. There is no windows rotate lock button there is no windows rotate button.

I have downloaded all the drivers and auto rotate still does not work. I have tried ThinkVantage. I have tried installing the 20DM and 20DN drivers and they also do not work. It requires me to update net framework which I cannot find the download to and I cannot change the net framework version in the registry.

I have tried emailing Lenovo in Australia because the US does not have a support email. It does not seem like they will be of any use since it has been two weeks.

In the device manager, the only devices under sensors is Windows Location Provider. There should be Simple Orientation Manager and HID Sensor Collection but I cannot find the drivers for them anywhere.

Are there any generic drivers I can download?

I tried putting them back on but the clips on the underside of the key caps seem to be broken. Is this covered under warranty? If so, will Lenovo send me a new keyboard or will I have to send the machine in? I really hope that Lenovo can send me one as I really need my machine and I am capable of replacing the keyboard on my own as I have serviced multiple ThinkPads in the past. Thanks in advance! Edit:I should mention that my warranty is good until January 12.

Machine Type Model: 20FY0002US

2. What is the part number for the screen? I need it to purchase online. Online forums suggest opening the screen to see the part number. Is there a way to see part number using model, and machine type (posted above)? I need part number of non-touch screen, if that will work with the laptop. 
3. What is the cheapest and reliable place to buy a replacement screen? I plan to replace it myself.

I picked up a Skylake yoga 14 (model # 20FY0002US) and I'm not getting anything from the DVI or HDMI outputs on a mini-DP to HDMI/DP/DVI adapter. This is the particular adapter I tried:http://www.amazon.com/DisplayPort-Thunderbolt-HDMI%C2%AE-Passive-Adapter/dp/B013Z71ZI0/ref=sr_1_9?ie... To be clear, the adapter offers DVI, HDMI, and DP outputs, only one of which works at a time. I'm not trying to plug three monitors into it. However, if I hook up a monitor via either the DVI or the HDMI outputs, the computer freezes for 15-60 seconds and nothing shows up on the external monitor. Drivers are all updated. I've tried the adapter on a Surface Pro 3 and it worked flawlessly. I've also tried it with multiple external monitors, so the problem is definitely with my ThinkPad. I've also tried DP1.1 and DP 1.2 versions of the adapter. Again, nothing out of the DVI or HDMI outputs.  Oddly enough, when I tried a simple mini-DP to VGA adapter, it worked.  What gives? This is a pretty important functionality to be missing...

I've tried two miniDP to DVI cables which neither worked.  I just bought an Apple miniDP to VGA adapter and that doesn't work either.  I've tested the monitors and they are good.  I'm assuming the cables are not the issue since I tried three.  I just read on another post that it is a design limitation that miniDP to HDMI or DVI do not work with this laptop.  I don't understand that.  However, it says that miniDP to VGA should work.  It clearly works for you.  Did you do anything other than plug the adapter in?

I am running the latest drivers from Lenovo's website and I have noticed that after a while (possibly after putting my computer to sleep and waking it up again), the ETD Control Center (which must be running in order to have full touchpad functionality) will constantly use ~30% CPU. This obviously impacts battery life, but it also makes my laptop produce more heat and noise than it would otherwise, while running slower. It is undesirable behavior. I have already tried uninstalling the drivers and reinstalling them, running the older version, or running the newer version. Nothing helps. Whenever this software is running, it does not take long before it is thrashing my CPU. Currently I am running the latest version of the software that is available on Lenovo's website, and I have updated everything possible using Lenovo's update software. I am running windows 10 and have the Elan touchpad drivers installed.

I'm having a bit of trouble regarding my external hard drive, not sure if it's failing or not. I've had it about 4 years now, use it every day, and as of a couple months back it's started acting up on me. I always have it connected to the USB 3.0 slots on the back of my tower(It's 3.0 compatible), and I switch which port it's in on occasion along with taking it to other places. The drive itself is a Seagate Backup Plus 1TB drive for Windows, and I completely formatted it a month ago to see if it would fix my problems. It didn't.

Alright, onto the problem. At random points in time the drive just stops. For example, I could be watching a video file I stuck on it and it just freezes on a frame and that's it, MPC-HD just straight up crashes. Or I could be transferring something over and it just dies mid-transfer with the transfer window going on for an infinite amount of time and I have to forcibly close things down. This is where the real problems start.

1. The hard drive is acted on as if it's still in use by the computer. It shows up in My Computer, it shows how much space is left, I can go through all the hard drive and all its folders, and any files loaded by a program prior to the stopping of the hard drive will still work up until where the hard drive just stopped.
For example, let's say I'm watching video1 and I switch to video2. Half way through video2 the hard drive just stops. If I double-click video1 it will play exactly how it did prior to the crash, but video2 wi... Read more

I've been googling this problem for a week now with no answers. I've done a lot of things in an attempt to solve this problem.

OK, so lately I've been getting disconnected from the internet. My cable modem is routed through a network hub, and then to my PC.

I can ping localhost, but cannot ping anything else, such as google.com or even my ISP's DNS server. In the network panel (Windows XP SP3), it says i am connected, but when I check properties I can see that it is not sending and receiving packets at all.

I've used commands pertaining to "netsh" to clear WINSOCK (and more I just forgot).

I have no idea as to what has caused this. The only significant thing that has happened prior to the problem was a storm that caused a power outage.

I'm thinking this is an Ethernet port issue, but a year ago I received the same problem, and somehow it was magically fixed.

I performed a scan for viruses, malware, and spyware but saw nothing. I then attempted to clean my registry (barely did much) and checked my Hijack This log and it still shows nothing out of the ordinary.

In Device Manager, it shows no problem with the actual device so I'm clueless...could it be a registry corruption?

I really need in-depth help because this seems to be a specific problem...
To put this all in brief:

1. Says I'm connected to internet.
2. Cannot send or receive packets.
3. Cannot ping anything but localhost.
4. Disconnection seems to be random.

The trackpoint on my Yoga 12 frequently stops working. Trackpad and buttons continue to function. I am running the latest drivers.  I just received my machine back from the depot and they just reinstalled Windows 10 and the problem is still occuring.  Whenever it stops I can reinstall the synaptics trackpoint driver and it comes back to life.  Sometimes it is only for a minute other times much longer.  Any ideas?  Thanks in advance.

I have a Yoga 14 (Type 20FY) running Windows 10 64-bit, and my screen works fine in notebook, stand, and tent mode, but turns off the second I rotate it past tent mode and into tablet mode. I heard this may be related to a (relatively) recent Windows 10 update, but I honestly don't know. My computer is out of warranty and I have no income at the time, so I'd love to be able to fix this without taking it to a professional.

I have a Yoga 14 (Type 20FY) that I am hoping to improve the gestures of. Currently the touchpad settings do not have any option for a four finger swipe. I have the latest drivers (11.21.9.3 Elan). I am looking to add the ability to use the four finger swipe to change desktops.

While I like most things about my Yoga 14 notebook, it has this annoying habit of going to sleep about 1 minute, even when it's plugged into a OneLink+ docking station.   I have the OS updated to the latest Windows 10 Creator's Edition and all device drivers up-to-date.   It's done this since I bought the machine earlier this year and I haven't been able to figure-out how to get it to honor the sleep settings in Windows.   Is there a BIOS setting or something that is forcing it to go to sleep after 1 minute?

This has happened to me on many systems in the past with many different configurations.

Current configuration:
Windows XP SP2 (updated to current but SP3 has not been applied)
Current Directx
Current Catalyst Drivers
AMD 4200 X2
ATI 3750
2GB Ram

Effectively the problem is that every so often on termination some programs will screw up Directx. Typically Direct3d functionality is all that is effected though sometimes even directdraw stops working.


A simple reboot will in all cases fix this problem until the next time, however that is both sloppy and annoying. What I want to know how to do is fix this without a reboot.


I'm assuming that Directx needs to get reloaded or that some other system service needs to be restarted. This is NOT a driver issue or if it is... it is one that has been around on many systems for about a 6 years... and effects both ATI and nVidia chipsets throughout multiple generations of said cards. This problem has been around for a long long time.


I've asked about it from time to time to see if someone knew and most people knew nothing about it.

Anyone have an idea here?

Apply XP SP3... Check your hard drive for corrupted files

Hey guys, I already searched but the search kept crashing. I found one closed thread on this subject using google search but it didn't contain any information on how to solve the problem. Anyway...

After the computer has been on for a while, the internet just stops working. The problem is the same in both firefox and ie. Browser will try to search for one split second and then stops and says done with a blank page. When I reboot the problem is fine. Instant messaging programs, if connected, will still function after the internet goes out.

The problem is NOT my wireless or network card, and i am still connected to the network and everything is fine. resetting the router doesn't help, nor does flipping off the wireless switch and flipping it back on.

nothing helps except restarting the computer. I really don't want to reformat over this. Any ideas? Thanks!

Btw, I have a toshiba satellite m115-s3094 with XP media center sp2. The restore disk will ONLY re-image the hard drive. It won't even let me reinstall the OS without reformatting. Uber uncool...
