Thinkpad Yoga X380 - Scratching from being in Stand Mode

Q: Thinkpad Yoga X380 - Scratching from being in Stand Mode

I've had my X380 for only a few weeks now and I noticed it's already getting scratched from being in stand mode. I had an S1 Thinkpad Yoga for years and it never developed scratches from being in stand mode. I noticed that the rubber feet on the palmrest are not the high point but the area below the trackpad is and that's why it's getting scratched.I was thinking if I could get some more of the little rubber feet on the bottom of the palmrest I could maybe double them up to make them taller, but I can't find them anywhere. Does anyone know if these can be bought on their own? Or maybe another suggestion to prevent the scratching? I've temporarily stuck some black rubber strips on the feet to make them taller, but it doesn't look that great.Thanks

Hi, I have  a Thinkpad X380 Yoga. The Thunderbolt 3 Dock will not charge my Thinkpad X380 YOGA, and a message saying that the dock is not providing enough power shows up on my minitor. I wonder if anyone have a solution to this problem. It does not make  sense to have to connect the Thunderbold AND the AC power to the Thinkpad, it should be just ONE Thunderbold cord. 1. My power brick is 135W, 20V-6.75A2. I am connecting the Thunderbolt to throuogh the port on the back of the dock.3. I have went to BIOS  and under power section, "disable the battary for technical service" and pwered it back on. None of the above solutions worked.

So i got this laptop during orientation for the college i'm going to. I got excited when i saw the drawing programs on it so that i could sketch anywhere anytime without carrying a sketchbook to classes just in case i had time in between to draw. But the pen doesn't work. I have a Thinkpad Pen Pro, and while it seems charged and sometimes work, it's rare. In the 3D paint program, i can get a quick line out of the pen but not again. It's like the connection with the screen is wonky. How do i fix this?

The touchscreen on my laptop stopped working a couple weeks ago. The screen does show the water drop and swipe feedback on the screen; however, it does not actually allow me to click or perform the actions. Interestingly, the touch screen does work in google chrome and no place else. I found a few forum posts where people had similar problem, but the solution was to remove "Lenovo Pen Settings Service" from the device manager. Unfortunately, I cannot find this driver in my device manager and have been unable to fix the problem. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Hello, I've got a brandnew ThinkPad X380 Yoga and after 3 days of using the pen isn't recognized anymore. I tried to update the driver and first that worked out, the pen was functioning perfectly again and as I checked it's battery it was fully loaded, so it can't be an issue of the pen I guess. But after 15 minutes of using it stopped working again and I couldn't find another solution than resetting and reinstalling the pen's driver so far, which is obviously pretty annoying if you need to do it every 15 minutes. I would be very glad if somebody could help me!

We currently have an issue where all of these machines will blue screen if they are shut down.

Manually downloaded and installed every driver on the "Drivers and support" page for this model, including multiple firmware flashes for every conceivable piece of hardware on the device
Run the disk cleanup utility to wipe away any trace of the previous 1703 install (windows.old)
 
Since we can't deploy like this, What can I do in order to get this fixed?

Our company recently bought 2 x380 Yoga laptops. As our companys policy states that we need to encrypt all our laptop HDD/SDD.As encryption method our company uses McAfee drive encryprion DE 7.2.x. We didnt know that x380 Yoga by default uses Lenovo NVMe Opal SSD drives, which is way put encryption policy in use.  What we did:At first we discovered that SSD are encrypted using bitlocker, so we decrypted it. After that we deployed McAfee DE and successfully encrypted SSD. We confirmed encryption and did laptop restart. After restart laptop can no longer boot from SSD. Bios stops at choose boot device screen. We can see SSD in boot screen, but choosing disk does nothing, i assume it cant access to the boot sector. It looks like Opal SSD is locked. What can we do in such situation, Is there a way to unlock it? We dont need to preserve data on SSD.

Hallo!Nachdem ich heute über die Lenovo Vantage-App mehrere Updates getätigt habe, funktioniert mein Touchscreen nicht mehr.Zu den Updates: Da ich selbst verucht habe das Problem durch Zurücksetzten des Systems zu lösen, was allerdings keinen Erfolg brachte, kann ich nicht genau sagen, was für Updates installiert wurden, jedoch kann ich mich entsinnen, dass unter anderem BIOS,SSD und Intel HD Grafiktreiber aktualisiert wirden sind.Zu dem Problem: Zu aller erst wird zwar der typische "Touch", also der Schatten bei drücken oder wischen über dem Bildschirm angezeigt, auch scrollen in bestimmtem Programmen wie z.B. auf Websites ist möglich, selbst das Drücken des "Fenster schließen" Xs wird mit einer Rot-Färbung derselbigen registriert jedoch werden durch berühren des Bildschirms nur Wahllos programme geschloßen auch wenn ich nur einen freien Bereich o.Ä. berühre.Der Stift wird Problemlos erkannt aber auch hier ist kein Zeichnen oder drücken möglich.Beim öffnen von OneNote, welches ich für Notizen nutze wird zudem kein Zeichnen per Hand mehr angeboten und wenn ich in den Einstellungen versuche den Bildschirm zu kalibrieren wird angezeigt, dass derselbige keine Stift oder Fingereingabe unterstützt. Ich hoffe ich konnte mein Problem anschaulich schildern und bitte um Hilfe.

Hi.Today my thinkpad (X380 Yoga) automatically updated some intel drivers (couldn't figure out which ones) with the Intel driver and support assistand. Afterwards the touchscreen somehow stopped working properly. I can still visually hover over buttons, text fields or program borders, but if I try to click it doesn't work. I can touch, but not click or scroll inside the programs, neither with my finger nor the pen.It's very strange that this only happens on Windows stuff like the taskbar, file explorers and some programs like OneNote or VirtualBox. In Chrome for example clicking and scrolling seems to work perfectly fine. Another strange thing i saw: Under tablet PC settings if I try to calibrate or configure my pen and touch display, it says that there is no pen or touch input available for my display. My display name is: 1.

I received my X380 Yoga with the i7-8550u a couple week back and the first thing I noticed was the fan running almost constantly. I checked task manager and noticed that even though the CPU usage is remaining low, the clock speed is running at around 3.80 GHz.  My power profile is set to balanced with the minimum processor state set to 5%. If I change the maximum processor state to 99% then the clock speeds drop to below the base speed of 1.99 GHz and the fan quites down.  The problem is the CPU will never go above 1.99 GHz when set like this, so performance is noticeably reduced. I've played around in the bios and the only thing that seems to drop the idle clock speed is to turn off Intel SpeedStep which again stops the CPU from going above 1.99 GHz. From my experience with my past computers the CPU should clock down when the load is low. Is this normal behaviour for this computer and processor? I am I missing a setting, or maybe a program or process is demanding full clock speed from the processor? Any help or comments would be appreciated. Thanks

Hi there! My 2 month old yoga 720 occasionally does this weird thing, when turning the screen from laptop mode to tablet/stand, and back. The screen sometimes glitches out with grey stripes vertically filling the whole screen, or it just might go black. It seems like a bad connection to the mb or something, so the opening or closing of the screen twists or yanks a wire or something. This is of course irritating and now I'm not overly confident in using the laptop to it's fullest potential, fearing that I'll break something. So is there any self remedy for the issue, or can I open the machine and check if something is pinched or something? Specs:Make: YOGA 72015IKBType: 80X7BIOS: 4MCN25WWV1.10

A:ThinkPad X1 Yoga how to resume from sleep mode??

Pressing the Fn key might do it if it has only been in sleep mode for a while, but after a period of time set under the power plan setting, it will go into hibernation mode  to save the battery power (it basically writes the system state to a file called hiberfil.sys, and powers off), and in that case you have to press the power button to resume. This might help too even though it does not explicitly mention your model.https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/documents/ht075624 Take Care,

Hi all, Got a bit of a strange one. I have one user with an X380 Yoga - since day 1 from brand new the stylus has been very intermittent (more off than on) and now it simply does not register on the users screen at all. Touch screen works as expected. I brought over another X380's stylus and it worked fine on the laptop screen. I then brought the "broken" stylus back, and it worked as expected on another X380. So to summarise, I can confirm both Styluses work, both screens work, but one stylus doesn't work on one screen, and one works on both.

Hi
 
In my case I have a Thinkpad Yoga 14 and it took me some time to stabilize Windows 10 on it. I went updating the driver over time until it get stable.
 
I also have some settings similar to you, but mine (for example)  sometimes switches to tablet mode when I close the lid, but when I open it Windows change very fast to laptop mode, so it does not bother me.

I can suggest you to try to update your drivers, here are some of my tips to update the drivers on a Thinkpad when going to Windows 10.
 
These are some of my tips to update the drivers of your Thinkpad:
 
1) Try first Windows Update and update all the drivers and Patches
2) Try Lenovo System Update to get any new/missing drivers.
3) Try to install Lenovo Settings and Lenovo Companion from the Windows App Store, Lenovo Companion also has a "update driver search"
4) Sometimes all that software does not recognize some updated / missing driver. Check Lenovo's Support Site and search for your specific model drivers (use the full model number of your Thinkpad).
 
If you have more experience installing and uninstalling driver, there are some other things you can do, but those options os AS IS outside Lenovo's suggestion.
1) There is DriverEasy that offers a decent for free scanning of your device and shows you which drivers can be updated from their database.
2) According to your machine devices you have the Intel Driver Update Utility and the AMD Driver Update Utility, sometimes it can help... Read more

Over the last few months my Thinkpad S1 Yoga has developed a habit of randomly entering tablet mode when the lid is about 90-120 degrees open, as if the lid was swung past 180 degrees. Consequently the keyboard and trackpad are disabled when this happens. Closing the lid to force the computer to sleep and then opening the lid again removes the symptom. Moving the lid past 180 degrees sometimes makes the computer go into laptop mode again, or sometimes makes the display rotate 90 degrees while staying in tablet mode. I tried to remove the sensor in Device Manager and let plugnplay rediscover it but the problem remains. So I'm guessing this is a hardware problem?

I was not able to find anything interesting on the support site of your model:

 I checked the change on the ELAN drivers from 12/1/2016, but it does not says anything about the touchpad not recovering from tablet mode.

If you already installed this driver and didn't work, I don't have more ideas about it.

Just got myself a second thinkpad, a X380 as the HDMI port wont support a widescreen from LG, i bought myself a Thunderbolt 3 dock. But I can't get the dockingstation to work. Is this because it's not comptable according to lenovo? The Thunderbolt controller is also not aways found, i have to manualy use the driver file which is able to detect the driver which is provided with the driver from intel. Ones opened, the thunderbolt controller is visible in the thunderbolt software. But no connection with the dockingstation. Is this because it's not comptable according to lenovo?

Hello,I have an annoying issue with my X1 Yoga: almost every time I put it in tablet mode, the key covergets a bit stuck around some keys and I need to press them a lotharder to get an input.It usually gets stuck either around arrow keys, spacebar, X and C. It's currentlystuck on the spacebar and I'm having a hardtime typing this message.It usually gets a bit betterif I put it back in tablet mode and help itgodown while getting it back to "laptop" mode, but it doesn't completely solve it.Does any of you have this issue? How do you solve it? Do I need to send it to a repair center? Thank you. P.S: I deliberately didn't correct any typing mistakes the keyboard mademe do so you know how annoying it is. It makes me want to throw it out of thewindow.

Everything was going fine until the day I updated my 20FY to the latest BIOS version (R05ET75W); now as soon as it goes to sleep mode, the olnly way to wake it up is rebooting ang losing all the not saved work.Everytime it happens I regret the day I sold my Dell Vostro to buy this machine.

Hi everyone, pressing [Fn]+[F7] on my X380 Yoga returns to my linux operating system the [win]+[p] keycodes whereas the [F7] key has the icon for monitor switching / presentation setup. Does anyone have the same issue or does anyone know a workaround for this? All the best
