X1 Yoga (1st Gen) Keyboard Not working even after replacement. Lights and trackbuttons ok. No keys.

Q: X1 Yoga (1st Gen) Keyboard Not working even after replacement. Lights and trackbuttons ok. No keys.

My X1 Yoga keyboard stopped responding suddenly. Was working fine, walked away for 15 minutes, came back to wake from sleep and no key response. Track button and click buttons on keyboard work fine. Caps lock and F1 indicator lights don't work either. The touchpad is fine. None of the keys work at all. Didn't install any new software or updates. Bought replacement keyboard from laptopkeyboard.com and replaced but still same exact issue so don't believe it is a faulty membrane (as suspected). Pulling hair out trying to understand. Only thought is maybe either the system board or the ribbon cable from the keyboard to the board went bad. There are two ribbon cables from the keyboard to the system board. My guess is one is for the track buttons and the other for the keys. Before replacing these, hoping someone has some other idea (maybe like a simple software glitch?). Thanks.

Hello, I have been having some issues with my Envy 15 TouchSmart notebook for a little over a year now. At first, just the G, H, and backspace keys were giving me issues. They would occasionally become less and less senstitive until I had to press extremely forcefully to get a response. Now the issue has moved to other keys, and it has become impractical to not use an external keyboard (which is very inconvinent for a laptop). At first, I figured it was a driver issue, since the problem would temporarily (a few minutes or so) be fixed by a hard reset of the PC. I had uninstalled my keyboard driver, and even reset my motherboard by removing the CMOS battery and clearing the CMOS, but that has not worked.  I then figured it had to be a hardware issue, so I had my keyboard replaced completely with a brand new one, but the issue persists. The same exact keys even.  I still believe this to be a hardware issue, but I cannot think of a cause. I have not spilled anything on the computer or exposed it to excessive moisture, but I am a college student who lugs it around campus in his bag, so maybe a card may have cracked? Any help/suggestions would be really appreciated!Alex

 I bought a backlit keyboard for my p50 from an online reseller (part# SN20K85143/ FRU 00PA317) because I thought having a backlit keyboard would be nice, and the price was good second hand (looks like new, seller said he prefered non lit version hence sale). I didn't have the time to replace the keyboard and it got left for a few months in the box, you know how it is sometimes ! So I installed the keyboard today (finally) and everything went fine. Boot into the OS and everything looks grand. Backlights work, function options work. I then do a quick keyboard test in note pad and I discover that some keys do not work. Specifically [T,Y,P,[,], and delete keys, also Up, down arrows) . I reseated the connector ribbons to check if the problem was there, same issue on reboot. I put back my original keyboard and that worked fine (using it now), so I hadn't damaged the connectors on the logic board. I wonder if thier is some mapping incompatability ? I couldn't find a similar issue on the forum. Helpful suggestions please ? ty

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.

Hi! I've got Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 13 Silver (https://www.alza.cz/EN/lenovo-ideapad-yoga-13-silver-d375124.htm), and while I am quite content with the device, my keyboard stopped working. I was wondering whether any of you might know and suggest an online reseller (official or otherwise), where I could get hold of a replacement keyboard. Now, I suppose backlit keyboard versions of newer Yoga laptops will not work I guess, will they? From what I have read Yoga 13 Silver does not have the slot required for backlit, but aside that, will the keyboard function and will it fit (dimension-wise)? If so, what is the voltage and current required? Would soldering a small battery to the backlit cable be a good idea (I accept the fact that I wouldn't be able to regulate it)? Thank you in advance!ck

Hi shields,
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
You can review this article:
How to lookup and purchase Accessories, Upgrades, and FRU/CRU Replacement Parts
 
CHecking with the hardware manual shows example part number 90205132 ZIVY0 Upper Case SV W/KB-US. You can check on the parts lookup page for your upper case that includes the bezel and keyboard.
 
 

Check availability of the parts with Lenovo encompass here.
 
You can reference the hardware manual for dissassembly although since most of the parts are attached to it, you may need to remove major parts altogether as discussion here. Service training videos are currently not available at the moment for the model. 
 
I hope this helps answer your query.

I have had my X1 Yoga 3rd Gen for about 5 days now and have started to notice that when opening the lid or switching back from tablet mode to laptop mode, that certain keys will remain recessed. It's the left Shift key along with Z, X, C, V. I can rectify this by pushing the V key and then it and the other recessed keys release. It also seems like the B key might be out of alignment too, however, it is not stuck in a recessed state like the ones mentioned above. Any one else seen this? Any ideas on how to fix or if I'm doing something wrong when switching between modes/opening the lid?

A:Yoga 900 keyboard key defect - bouncing keys

Hello, I had this problem with my Yoga 3. I finally get fed up with it and decided to look into it. I cannot  say I found a solution based on any suggestions, because I didn't see anything  relevant from my initial search. So, I went to the Lenovo support site and looked for a keyboard driver update. I didn't see one. This is probably not related, but I did see an update to my touchpad driver, so I updated it. Then I checked for a BIOS update. There was one, but the accompanying text file did not mention anything about a fix for keyboard bounce. In fact, it didn't really give a list of problems fixed at all. So, I decided to try it anyway. Well, it seems to have worked! I got keyboard bounce so often that I'm sure I would have seen it multiple times by now. If it happened only once in a while, I would not have been so annoyed. This is where I started the process: http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/GlobalProductSelector?C=1&TabName=Downloads&linkTrack If you click on "Detect my product", it will install an app that collects your specific product info.  Then, when  you click on it again with the app installed, it will go to a page for your product and you can search for various driver updates and BIOS updates. I hope this works for you. It certainly seems to have fixed my keyboard bounce problem.

Hey everyone,
 
I've got a Dell XPS L502X with Win7 x64, that recently underwent massive cleaning, and virus removal.  After I was finished, my laptop was somewhat functional again, however I had tons of corrupt system files and the system would hang for 1-2 minutes at random times throughout the day.  At this point I decided to backup my personal files, and do a clean re-install of the OS.  However, despite my best efforts to re-install the OS after the drive was formatted, the installation was constantly failing around 55%. So I ran CHKDSK f until it completed (about 9 hrs.. -_-), and attempted to re-install again with no luck.
 
   After this failure, I ended up taking it in to a local repair shop. The guys there ran diagnostics and let me know that the HDD was bad, and needed to be replaced. The original HDD was the stock 750gb that came from Dell, however since it was already in the shop, I told them to go ahead and install a 1TB HDD since they said it would be a minimal price difference. Here's where things get weird... When I picked it up (yesterday), everything "seemed" to be working fine, however, I thought it was odd that I didn't recognize some of the drivers they used to get it up and running; but I thought hey, probably just the most recent driver updates. Once I began browsing with chrome, I immediately noticed that neither one of my control keys were functioning, as I couldn't use the keyboard shortcuts to switch between tabs.... Read more

A:Control Keys not working after HDD replacement&OS Re-install

This is primarily a legal problem - not a computing one - and the problem here is that consumer legislation varies so much from one country to another. At a guess you live somewhere in the Western half of the USA or Canada, judging by local time.
 
It might seem reasonable that if you take an equipment in to have a problem repaired that you should get it back without a new one - but!  Can you put forward any evidence that the keyboard was working properly immediately before you took it into the shop ?  If you can you would be in a much stronger position when it comes to negotiating.
 
As I see it, you have two choices. The first is to leave it to the tender mercies of your local repair shop, but try to beat them down on the price. The other is to take it back as it is and try to fix it yourself, and that depends on how confident you feel about your skills.
 
The only other thing that might help you is the drivers that were installed. It is extremely easy to find drivers for a Dell, all you need is the number off the bar code somewhere on it and access to the Dell web-site. These will take straight to the page listing the drivers for your computer and if these are not the drivers that were installed then they have been less than 100% professional.
 
I am sorry I cannot be more positive, but if you want to pick a fight - and here, at home, I would be inclined to - you need local advice as to your position and the 'local' bit I definitely can't help... Read more

This pc is like 7 years old and could it be that the mobo is dying, or the slots are dying.'?

Hello MArleoThanks for using the Lenovo forums.
 
Try a static discharge for this, it may help to resolve the issue or at least get rid of any built up static on the motherboard.(If the battery is internal, please just skip the remove/replace battery steps.)1. Turn the unit off2. Remove the battery and the Mains adapter3. Press and hold the front power button for 30 seconds4. Replace the battery and the Mains adapter5. Turn the unit on as normal
 
If it doesn`t work, open it up again, make sure that there is no loose connections, it may be that one of the cables came loose when you put it back together again.

I checked if the Fn key is working by trying to use Fn+F12/F10 ... and yes it works, also the space key works just fine, i don't know what happened ,it's like the backlit is switched off and that i have to enable it from setting or something.  I appreciate all the reply's. Thanks in advance.

As I wrote in the title, my Shift and Alt keys stopped working for keyboard shortcuts. However, the Shift key still works when capitalizing letters.

I've been dealing with this problem off/on for the past two weeks and haven't been able to figure it out. I've gone into Ease of Access features and turned on/off all of the available options (Mouse Keys, Sticky Keys, Toggle Keys, Filter Keys). I've pressed Shift for 8 seconds, and pressed it 5 times, and still haven't been able to correct it.

Thank you in advance for any help offered.

Possibly helpful additional information:
I've got a Spanish/Latin American keyboard layout installed in addition to the US English keyboard layout. I toggle back and forth with Left Alt + Shift (which is how I noticed my Shift key stopped working).
I play a game whose controls rely on a lot of Shift key pressing and holding.

When was the last time you used a can of air cleaner on the keyboard? If it isn't from contact wear often keyboards tend to get loaded up with dust and debris!

One example of that is having any snacks onhand around a pc where little bits get passed along from your fingers onto and under the keys themselves. Keyboards are known to get loaded up fast with any foods present!

I had a problem with my laptop which is certain key on my keyboard is not functioning. The weird is, it happened without a reason. because after I shutdown doing my work when I turn it on again, I discovered my "s", "d", "g", "h", "\", "m", " left shift", "caps lock" and "~" key did not work at all. I try taking the key off, cleaning underneath, but nothing seems to be working. After that I try to use usb keyboard and it seems the key can be entered. So I thought my hardware is the problem. than I replace into the new one, but still having the same problem. I already waste my money buying new keyboard. Does any one happen to know what sort of problem this is and how I would go about fixing it? Is it related to the registry. My laptop is Acer aspire 4740G, ram 4GB, processor i3 2.4GHz. I hope someone can help me to solve this problem.

Hi guys, Something really strange started happening two days ago. Out of the blue the following keys stopped working: GHBackspaceWindows [email protected]' The laptop is a couple of years old and a bit dusty, so I took it to the local shop to get the keyboard replaced and cleaned. Seemed to be working fine when I left the shop. Then, a little while ago the space key and P stopped. Five minutes later they started working again but ctrl stopped and N is temperamental. I haven't spilt anything on it or knocked it. Any ideas what's going on?

Hi, Try the following. Shut down the notebook, unplug the AC Adapter and then remove the battery.  Hold  down the Power button for 30 seconds.  Re-insert the battery and plug in the AC Adapter. Tap away at the esc key as you start the notebook to launch the Start-up Menu and then select f10 to enter the bios menu.  Press f5 to load the defaults ( this is sometimes f9, but the menu at the bottom will show the correct key ), use the arrow keys to select 'Yes' and hit enter.  Press f10 to save the setting and again use the arrow keys to select 'Yes' and hit enter. Regards, DP-K

I have a Dell 7737 laptop and from time to time it develops a firmware glitch where random keys stop working for both BIOS Setup and Operating Systems. After such thing happens neither shutdown (Full shutdown / Fast Boot disabled) nor restart get the keyboard back to a normal state. At this point the only workarround is to disconnect the AC power cord and then either drain the battery or physically remove it.
This laptop's battery cover is not designed for daily removal and it is starting to get loose because of this BIOS bug.
I am running BIOS version A14 but this bug was present since I purchased the laptop with BIOS version A07. Sometimes I cannot even type my password because the random keys that stop working match those it uses.
Please Dell could you provide a BIOS hotfix for this annoying issue?
