Hi All,I sent my laptop in for repair because the left shift key was sticking.  7025187370 is my Service Order Number. I received an email from Jason that works for Flex for permission to replace my harddrive. I asked why and got no response, but said yes anyways because I use this laptop for work. Remember all I had was a keyboard issue. I received the laptop back, keyboard was still the same. I spoke with support and asked them what they written in their notes for the diagnostics.He said, "keyboard cable is loose and replaced ssd is faulty (no reason). When I called in and told them that I was not able to run my virtual machines (I upgraded to to Windows 10 Pro to use the Hyper-V feature), they told me it was a software issue. They also said that they replaced the harddrive with the same model as I got it from Best Buy in DEC 2016. I tested my VM's that I backed up on the original HD onto a seperate machine and they work fine. My files weren't corrupted and my Lenovo Yoga 910 was not working properly. I then chatted with their tech support and asked for the original HD model. Guess what, they weren't matching. This is the one in my current machine:http://www.samsung.com/semiconductor/products/flash-storage/client-ssd/MZVLV512HCJH?ia=831 This is the original one when I originally bought it from Best Buy:http://www.samsung.com/semiconductor/products/flash-storage/client-ssd/MZVLW512HMJP?ia=831 The one in my laptop right now has a p...

I have a strange problem that just started today. I have Win 7 Home Premium 64bit and a Saitek Cyborg Keyboard V7 (KU-0728). When using the left shift key to press the 9 key to get a left parentheses [(] I get nothing. The left shift key works for all other keys and I can access [(] by using the right shift key. I'm leaning towards not a hardware issue due to the fact that the left shift works on other keys and the 9 key works with the right shift key. Could it be a driver issue? I've done some searching but can't relly find anything on this issue. Seems kind of wierd that the left shift would not work with only one key. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank You in advance,

So here is the situation, everything seems to be working fine at first on my laptop keyboard as it has for about 6 months. However recently my down key broke, so I got a program that allows you to remap keys to other keys. So I remapped my down to key to my page down key, which is very close to it and it was working fine for a day.

But now I find that 2 keyboard commands don't work. When I am holding left shift the right arrow key doesn't work, and when I'm holding left control the left arrow key doesn't work. I'm not sure if it's related to the program I downloaded and I don't think it is but I thought I'd mention it. I've fought with google search results and my computer for 2 hrs and this is frustrating. Never had this problem before. Individualy each key still works fine, but LSHIFT + --> Doesnt work and LCTRL + <-- doesn't either. THIS SUCKs. Please help

On my Thinkpad Yoga S1, the keys t, y, backspace, enter, caplock, and left shift are suddenly not working. This seems to be a common problem on lenovo computers, but the lenovo forum administrator closed the only thread that attempted to address this without any solution. The lenovo admin said that too many diferent models were involved. I don't understand why these exact specific keys are affected on so many Lenovo models. Lenovo has no solution, and will not support a thread to work towards one. The Microsoft store already replaced my keyboard under warrenty over a year ago, but the YTP S1 is now out of warrenty. This does not seem to be a hardware problem given the relatively recent Keyboard replacement. Does anyone have any suggestions? I wont buy another Lenovo if this problem cant be solved. I've had tremndous problems with this computer and have found Lenovo to be unhelpful/unresponsive. This was an expensive computer when it was purchased.

Hi all, I bought a Lenovo S1 Yoga. The shift key only works with certain keys but not other, important ones like T. It is extremely inconvenient and makes this laptop unsuitable for work. Characters like the semi-colon are completely unavailable on this laptop now. I have already read through quite a few forum posts to find the solution. I have tried using the device manager to uninstall the keyboard, have used Lenovo vantage to find the latest drivers and install them and have also tried turning all keyboard ease of access ommands off. Nothing seems to fix this issue. It seems to be a software issue, rather than Hardware as the shift key works with about half of the keyboard. It does not fix itself when working on the command prompt. Please could someone provide an adequate solution to this problem. Thanks,SZ

While the Community had a solution for the poor placement of the Right Shift Key on the 710, it cannot be applied on the 910. After installing KeyTweak and attempting to run it, I received "Run-time error '380': Invalid property value." I worked with Best Buy's Geek Squad for hours. They tried every keyboard remapping tool they knew of, and nothing worked. Since we know there can be a relatively easy software fix to this problem -- which is clearly angering many customers, and presumably hurting Lenovo's revenues and reputation -- could Lenovo Tech Support or Product Management please provide the fix?

Hello,Several days ago my laptop (As per title) crashed (I had dozens of Chrome tabs open + MS Word). After restarting, I lost right click completely. Left click will be unresponsive upon start up but eventually after some time (2-3 minutes) comes back to life. However it often then ceases to work soon after for no reason. So left click only works intermittently. I am almost certain it cannot be a physical hardware issue as the touch pad + click function worked perfectly before, then after a system crash it became completely unresponsive. I am stuck navigating using the touchscreen, tab/enter/arrow keys and the keyboard shortcut for right click. An external USB mouse works perfectly fine and I can left+right click normally, but this is not a long-term solution. This is very annoying. My laptop is out of warranty, as I purchased it new and have been using it since late 2016/early 2017. So far every attempt to resolve this has not worked, but so far I have tried:1- Updating my Elan Device Drivers through Device Manager2- Attempting to 'Defrag' Windows through it's inbuilt tools3- Full Reinstall of Windows (Wiping all files completely)4- Uninistalling/removing Elan Mouse Device completely through Device Manager, restarting, then allowing it to automatically reinstall.5- Shutting down the system, holding the power button for 30 seconds (I read this can help clear out bugs, someone had some luck with it rectifying their track pad right click issues but didn't h...

Hi, Friends,

i am playing NFS shift, Race driver GRID all these games are having the same problem. When i press left OR right key to turn the throttle drops and i have to press UP arrow key again to accelerate. I have altered upto every possible configuration in the game controls options but not positive result :-( please help because this really sucks.
Regards.
 

A:Keyboard issue:-Throttle drops/disengage when i steer left OR right

Using a keyboard with racing sims generally means that you only have on/off control of inputs like throttle,
brake and steering. Press the up key, and the throttle engages at full, release the key and the throttle
disengages. Same with braking and steering, either all or none. You may be able to set a 'soft' response,
where the input slowly increases to full, but it will still return to zero input when you release the key.
The only way around it is to get a gamepad with thumbsticks or a wheel and pedal set.

Hello everyone. I have Toshiba Qosmio X300-14Y. I have installed vista 64-bit on it and installed only the drivers I needed. I've also installed the 64-bit bios which I've downloaded from the toshiba website, for my laptop. Now everything works fine except one thing. This laptop is a gamers laptop (you might say a gamer should not prefer a laptop but the things worked this way), and as you know, when you use a scoping rifle you might feel to use left shift -> steady rifle + A -> going left + Q->leaning left. The problem is, when I use this combination, the key "A" doesn't work. I tried the same combination in notepad and it doesn't work neither. The weird thing is, if I use the right shift+A+Q -> it works, left shift+E+D -> it works. To summarise, only this combination doesn't work, if I change a key, it works. As I said it's not caused by the game because I tried it in notepad; when I pres left shift+E+D -> it types first capital E then capital D, but when I press left shift+Q+A -> it only types capital Q. But the situation is different with right shift, it types what it is supposed to type. I'ld be glad if you help. Thank You

I was playing a game that required me to press and hold Shift + W + D and not only did it not respond but i got a beep (from speakers not internal)
It turns out that this (along with a few other combos) will cause this beep no matter what i am doing. even if i'm just on the desktop.
I've watched my running programs ( in task manager) for responses to these commands and the only program that seems to react to it is those that deal with outputing the audio.
the combo of keys is left CTRL or left SHIFT + any key in the second row from TAB to Y in combo with the key down and to my right of it E.G left SHIFT + W+D
The predictable pattern makes me thing it is a bug(or unfinished listener) in something, my first though is keyboard drivers.

Hi, 
  Any ideas why nothing happens when I press the WinLogo key + Shift + Left or Right combination to move the current window to the other display in dual-monitor mode?  I'm using Win 7 Pro 64 bit on a quad-core HP notebook in extended display mode
with a NVIDIA GeForce GT 230M driver (version 8.15.11.8644). My primary
display is an external LCD on my right and the notebook LCD is on my left. I normally use the Classic interface but the key combination doesn't work with the regular Aero theme either.  I do connect with an external keyboard but the combination
also doesn't work on the notebook keypad and it doesn't work with either the numeric key pad arrow keys or the dedicated arrow keys on either keyboard.  Other WinLogo key shortcuts do work. For example, in the Aero theme, the WinLogo+Space key works. 
Also not working is the unshifted WinLogo+Left/Right combination to align the window to the right or left edge.
Jerry
 

A:Why doesn't WinLogo+Shift+Left/Right work?

PROBLEM SOLVED: Unchecking
this option in the Make the keyboard easier to use section of the
Ease of Access Center made the keys work again:
  Prevent windows from being automatically arranged when moved to the edge of the screen.

I think early on I checked this box because I didn't like the idea of my windows getting auto-arranged like that. But as it turns out, it seems to just refer to the auto-maximize effect when dragging a window to the top screen edge -- at least that's all I
see when configured with the Classic theme. (Along with, of course, the WinLogo assisted functions.)

I have multiple input methods on my Windows 8.1 . I think I am having problem using the shortcut key to switch between input languages. I am gussing this is probably due to a buggy Windows update, and I cannot recover my Windows due to some reasons.

So the problem is that I cannot set Left Alt + Shift to be shortcut combination for switching languages for the input methods. I know how to change the settings on Control Panel > Language > Advanced Settings. I have double checked the setting
is set to Left Alt + Shift , but when I press Left Alt + Shift, nothing happens. The input language is not switched.

For testing, I have tried setting other combinations like Ctrl + Shift and these combinations work fine for changing input language. It is only Left Alt + Shift that is not working. It looks like this key combination has been hijacked or ignored.

Can someone come up a solution for this? Thank you very much.

In my case, I dropped the machine. It was an accident, the cord was caught on the swivel chair. Here's where the problem appears to be. The machine has two buttons side by side to the upper right of the the keyboard. The left one is the eco settings, it brings up a window with easy power saving controls including sound off, wireless off, screen dim. It's marked with a world globe with a couple of leaves, some kind of green thing.

The button to the right has the image of a notebook computer and a desk display. It is useful I think when you run a cable to an external monitor or a projector. But since the fall, that is at this moment, the right button also brings up the eco window.

In other words, the fall stuck the machine in a display mode for an external monitor with the consequence of a screen alignment problem The solution involves opening the machine and freeing that button.

Hi! I am a new thinkpad user (T470) and one of the reasons that made me pick it up was the famous keyboard quality and the trackpoint, which I intended to use for fast programing. As many new users, one thing that I found odd was the position of the Ctrl and Fn keys. I know that I can switch them in the BIOS or in the Lenovo settings app. However, after 1 month of switching back and forth, I decided to keep the default layout for the following reasons:1) I get it: Ctrl closer to the center of the keyboard makes it less of a stretch to press Ctrl+Letter, while Fn+Letter is never used.2) There is an unnavoidable, backlit "Crtl" and "Fn" written in the keys. So, if I am in switch mode, I can't avoid pressing the wrong key if I happen to look at it (it's just like trying to say the color of the words RED and GREEN).3) The "Ctrl" key is larger and slighty to the left, so even if I am in switch mode and I want to copy-paste, I still hit the "Ctrl" key every time regardless, introducing a mute Fn+C and next pasting the wrong piece of code. This is way more  annoying than just getting used to the thinkpad layout and use the big fat Ctrl key that says "Ctrl" (and honestly, it is fine after a week). Now... considering the above, and after accepting that Thinkpads have Ctrl in the right place and the other 90% of laptops are wrong, can someone explain me how am I supposed to press Crtl+Shift+[...] on a non-US keyboard?

Update: Omg, fatal typo. I meant Ctrl+Shift+Esc. Sorry.

A:Win+Shift+Esc shortcut for task manager only works on the left side ?

Try
Ctrl-Alt-Delete

My Yoga 710-15ikb keyboard crapped out. The local repair guy says that Lenovo had issues with that unit, and I will have to use a USB keyboard. Has anyone ever heard of this? He tried to fix it once by intalling a new keyboard,  and all of the keys worked except a few. He said that even though there is an issue there is no recall. I am having a hard time believeing this is the case, and was wondering if anyone else has had heard anything. Thanks
