I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hello, I just received a 2nd generation X1 carbon as a gift from my brother (his old work laptop). It was running Windows 7 without issues. Since I'm mostly studying Linux development, I immediately wiped the hard drive and installed Ubuntu 16.04 LTS. Now the adaptive keyboard is firing random key presses (keystrokes) all of the time. It's really quite unusable (WiFi turning on and off, audio on and off, and random function keys getting pressed). Since it wasn't doing this before, I'm confident that this is something I did when I set the machine up for myself. What I did was to wipe the entire hard drive. I removed all of the partitions including the windows restore and other partitions (I can't remember what they were all called, but I seem to recall that they were factory partitions from Lenovo). Once I started Linux, the crazy behavior began (about 5-20 random key presses per minute). But the crazy thing is that behavior also exhibits itself even before Linux boots. If I boot into the BIOS setup, the adaptive keyboard will continue to fire off the phantom key presses (I can tell because I see the keyboard icons changing as well as the computer beeping every time it randomly chooses an "illegal" key). So, that implies to me that it isn't Linux that is causing the issue directly (it may have triggered something, but it isn't, say, an actively malfunctioning driver). A few more data points. If I reset the BIOS (sometimes I have to ...

A:X1 Carbon (2014) Adaptive keyboard random key presses after HD wipe & Linux install

Update:I wiped the drive again and this time installed Win10. The keyboard *seems* to have settled down.I say *seems* because at one point it appears to have registered a screen grab? The system beeped and a moment later it was asking me where to save the screen grab. Beyond that, no random keyboard presses that I am aware of.Of course, the adaptive keyboard doesn't do anything at all now either. I can't get it to change from the default function key row.I took this opportunity to update the BIOS which was on 1.17 to the latest 1.31.I'm going to re-install Linux alongside Windows now to see how it behaves.

Aside from reinstalling/factory imaging my 1 week old X1 Carbon (20A8), I figured I would ask here... The tphkload.exe process is at a constant 25% CPU.  Have to keep this laptop plugged in or it dies after about 2-3 hours.When I am booted into the OS desktop, the left "switch" button does not work.  All other times it does... during POST, at the login screen and at the lock screen.  At this point, I have to lock my machine to switch between the Fn menu and Volume menu.Restarting the service has no effect.Uninstalled, rebooted and installed the software about 5 times now and still no joy.I am currently using Hotkey Features Integration v5.33.0000 with the latest BIOS v1.16.  Do I even need this software to use the adaptive keyboard - since during POST I can change the keyboard just fine.   I should also mention that uninstalling the Hotkey software and rebooting, the Adaptive keyboard cannot be changed when in the OS at all (even when locked or logging in)... yet it can during the POST sequence.  Strange... Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

A friend has an 2nd gen X1 Carbon (20A7), purchased with Win 8.1 Pro, long since upgraded to Win 10 pro."BIOS" as they keep calling it, is latest, GRET54WW 1.31 Windows automatically updated, Lenovo Vantage Auto Updates on. A while ago she "cleaned" the adaptive keyboard, since when, she thinks, it does not work. It is "dead", not even lit up. Note, this may be coincidental. She says she used firm pressure, but I think it unlikely she physically damaged it. Since then on power up a message is displayed: "Flashing Adaptive Keyboard Firmware... Please do not power off!" This stays for perhaps 30s before booting continues. I cannot get to the EFI by pressing enter at this stage, (but can from the OS). Then, all seems normal except the non working adaptive keyboard. Searching the message in quotes, even just the first half: "Flashing Adaptive Keyboard Firmware" produces zero hits. Zero! Looking in Vantage / Lenovo System Update, I saw that around the same time, "ThinkPad Hotkey Features Integration Package Setup - 10 [64] - V.9.0.0.7" was shown as successfully installed. Suspecting this, I googled how to uninstall, and was led to n1wvu28e.exe. There is however no uninstall option in that package. Further, running n1wvu28e.exe told me that its default install is to C:\DRIVERS\HOTKEY. Although Vantage showed it as installed, this directory had only a single "setup.exe". I ran n1wvu28e.exe which populated C:\DRIVERS\HOTKEY with 21 items. ... Read more

A:New X1 Carbon Adaptive Keyboard strip not switching

When I have seen this in the past it is caused by not having the proper Power Management driver in the OS image.
 
20A7 uses a new version of Power Management driver and if your IT guys didn't update the company Win7 image to include the new driver, then it's not going to work.

The adaptive keyboard on my 2014 X1 Carbon appears to be failing. It regularly registers phantom button presses near the right end that trigger (e.g.) the settings or keyboard backlight depending on which strip is active. When it launches the settings window, it happens frequently enough to interfere with use. I found many suggestions to update the bios, e.g.https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-X-Series-Laptops/X1-Carbon-20A7-adaptive-keyboard-phantom-butt...I have installed all updates from Lenovo's System Update (the machine is running Windows 10), so the bios should be up to date. Are there any other software fixes I should try? If it is a hardware issue, is itsomething I can do myself? Based on my current usage I could survive with the strip entirely disabled, but I don't see a consumer-facing way to do that. Thanks.

I have a Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Carbon with Adaptive Function Room Keyboard.  It is my work computer, not my fave set-up.  Yesterday, I may or may not have attempted to clean the keys with a damp rag and wahla my key strokes are not anything like the keys they represent.  I have finally gotten into 'safe mode' but I cannot key in my password to reset or restore anything.  UGH.  After 12 hrs, it did work for long enough for me to draft 1 line of an email and then it stopped.  I've rebooted/shut down/etc.  The mouse works fine - as does enter apparently.  Please help.  This is awful timing...isn't it always?!  And the talking adaptive keyboard is simply dumb.  I brush my hand across at least 3x a day and the computer barks at me. Shaunti in Chicago

A:X1 Carbon with Adaptive Keyboard -- Key Strokes or Alphabet Not Registering

I am not a fan of the adaptive keyboard either, but some people like it.  It sounds like you got some moisture under the conductive membrane.  Sometimes that sort of thing dries out, but usually it doesn't.  If it really doesn't work, you might try a hair dryer on a low setting.  You might make it worse, but if it really doesn't work, there isn't much to lose.  I have replaced keyboards on those, but it is not a good job for someone who is not experienced.  You start removing things from the bottom, and need to take everything off.  The last part is the keyboard assembly

I'm having some issues with my 2nd gen X1 (20A8). The adaptive keyboard just doesn't want to work properly. It's physically working because during boot I can switch the panel config. And whatever config is there when Windows 10 starts, most of the buttons work fine.  The two major non-working buttons are the 'switch panel' button on the left, and the settings button on the right. I've followed numerous articles and got to the point where I'm going into control panel and trying to access adaptive keyboard. I get this;  And when I click on it I get 'application not found' (not surprising considering the blank icon). Following it further I find that it's part of the hotkeys update which I find as r0yvu27e.exe.  The install works, and I'm able to switch panels. But the settings button still doesn't work, and the adaptive keyboard option in control panel is still dead. But then I restart the laptop, and I lose the ability to switch panels. To my untrained eye I think something has got messed up on a driver update, and my first thought is to clear everything out and start again. But I don't know what I need to clear out and from where.

I'm literally copy-pasting space to type this, and every time i backspace, it turns my volume down. That's because I accidentally dripped some water on my Adaptive Keyboard Strip this afternoon, and now my Fn key is still stuck on, on a hardware level. (I wiped it off mmediately when it happened, shut it down and left it alone, and now it's still like this.)  I know it's probably either busted or it just needs more time to dry out. I'm planning on upgrading to one of the newer Carbons next month anyway (one without this annoying strip!)so i'm not looking for a permanent fix. But my friend and i were going to play some games tonight and i'm worried i won't be able to now. Is there a way to temporarily disable Fn or something? I know you can't remap it the way you can most keys, and i have tried going into BIOS with F10 when i restarted once but i couldn't use the arrows to navigate-- it kept jumping around and i think the stuck Fn might have been the reason. Ialso  tried making sure stickykeyswas disabled. so it's definitely the hardware and the water. thank you!

Hello Pinaxx. So, from time to time your notebook's built in keyboard stops functioning? Is this correct?Again, just to make sure I am on the same page, what is listed under "Human Interface Devices" and "Keyboards" in your Device Manager? If it is not listed, do you have a section labeled "Other Devices?"Before going further I'd like to perform a hard reset of the notebook. This forces the computer to re-initialize the hardware and can fix a wide variety of issues. Try the following.Shut down the notebook.Remove battery and AC power.Press and hold power button for 20-30 seconds.Replace battery and AC power.Boot notebook and verify functionality of keyboard.Post the result.I will keep an eye out for your reply and continue working with you. I hope you have a great day!

A:Satellite U920T - when I slide out the keyboard touchscreen no longer works

> Tablet PC setting in the control panel also disappear once the keyboard ist out..
I assume this should be OK since the tablet PC settings should be available only if the notebook is used in ?tablet mode?

The point is that this notebook can be used in three different modes.
1) tablet mode -> the keyboard and touchpad are pulled in and only touchscreen can be used
2) laptop mode -> the keyboard and touchpad are pulled out
3) photography mode -> keyboard is pulled in but touchpad is pulled out and can be used as well as the touchscreen.


I?m not quite sure if the ?orientation lock button? (on the left side) would affect the touchscreen but fact is that using this button the automatic rotation of the screen orientation can be enabled or disabled.
If you are operating the computer in laptop or in photography mode, the screen orientation will always be in Landscape mode.

Please check also if the touch display has been calibrated properly
Go to control panel (win key + x control panel) -> Tablet PC settings

Here you will find the first tab called ?Display?
Click on ?Setup? button to start the setup where you could identify the touchscreen
In bottom area called ?display options? you could calibrate the touch display.

After a recent update (Aug 2018) i relized my volume and screen brightness on screen was not showing.  I read post about using the hotkey integration tool.  It worked but only for volume and brightness but the I can not switch any of the keys on the adaptive screen.  When I reboot the hotkey fix is gone and I can switch between the adaptive keys but nothing shows on the screen.  For example, my volume goes up and down as I press +/- but it does not show on the screen.  In addition, I can press the wifi icon on the adaptive screen but I don't see anything.  I have uninstalled power manager and re-installed a lesser version but still nothing helps.  Any help from this forum would be appreciated.   

A:X1 Carbon 2nd Generation - Adaptive Keys not working

This sounds familiar.  Have a look at this thread and consider rolling back the power management driver update:

Hi guys, I've seen some threads similar to this, but none of the solutions have helped me.I recently purchased a 2nd gen X1 carbon, the one with the digital function keys. They don't seem to be working anymore. They did when I first got it, but have stopped. I've spent lots of time making sure I have all drivers, to no prevail. The actual function keys themselves work, F1 through F12, as well as the button for the backlit keyboard. The Fn key that you use to switch modes of the adaptive function keys, as well as the settings button and project and wifi button don't work.The strange thing is that everything works in BIOS. It is only when Windows 10 boots up that it stops working.Any help that anyone can give me is really appreciated!

I have a Carbon X1 (V2) with Windows 10 Pro loaded.  I suspect it may be missing some software and/or a device driver; Device Manager doesn't seem to know about the adaptive keys.When I start up normally, the function keys work (F1-F12) but the Fn key seems to do nothing, The keyboard backlight key works, none of the others appear to do anything.

The adaptive keys on the 2014 X1 Carbon Keyboard seems like the perfect place for multimedia keys such as play/pause/fast forward/rewind but I am suprised to see them missing. Is this something that could be added in a future update?

A:X1 Carbon Adaptive Keys - Multimedia functions

Take a closer look at the dynamic keyboard row. These are preset keys. They are not rendered. They are just illuminated touch keys, nothing more than that ;-)But nobody uses these play/pause/rewind keys. Why use those keys if you have your window open, right? And plus not all software supports multimedia keys.ThinkPads aren't multimedia laptops, they are meant for business, conferencing, etc.

As the title already mentioned, my wife's thinkpad x1 carbon 2nd gen adaptive row keys starts to look like the liquid part is evaporating. Where can I buy the replacement for the unit in question? Appreciate any answer. Thanks

Long list of items that have crept up on this laptop after using it for several months. . . . The touchscreen no longer works.   I have reinstalled drivers over and over again, deleted and let windows choose the driver, and have tried everything I can think of to get it working. Yet it no longer recognizes touch at all. Bamboo Ink styles works just fine, uninstalling the associated drivers did not change anything. It slowly started to work intermittently and then just quit all together. Keyboard keys just stop working  So far some seemingly random LOWERCASE letters stop working, if I hold shift I get an uppercase just fine, or if I hit capslock it will give me the uppercase of whatever letter is not working for that day, so the button itself is fine. This has happened on several different keys completely randomly for no apparent reason what so ever. The only way to fix the issue once it occurs is to stop what you are doing and restart the computer. . . Doing so might fix it for a week or an hour. In the middle of typing or clicking, or doing anything at all it decides to "sleep"    I can be in the middle of typing something, moving the mouse to click on something, or using the stylus to take notes and without warning it will enter sleep/hibernation mode. . .  I have updated the drivers to the latest that are available, I also updated the BIOS to the latest recommended to see if that might help solve some of the issues. So far no lu... Read more

Hi, everyone, I just joined and would like some help, please. I didn't find a thread specific to my case (maybe there's one and I didn't see, though). I have a 6 year old Compaq Presario F730US running Vista Home Premium and it has been working fine all these years; yesterday, while online the blue light indicating wireless ON became amber suddenly and I can no longer connect except wired. The wireless adapter is not showing on Device Manager or anywhere else and HP Wireless Assistant won't open. Things I've already tried:
-Update/uninstall/reinstall driver
-Remove/reinstall hardware
-System Restore to at least a week prior
And some other tips from some tech sites around. Of course, nothing worked.
Thanks for any help.
