YOGA Home 900 Inclinometer (state sensor)

Q: YOGA Home 900 Inclinometer (state sensor)

The YOGA Home 900 uses the G-Sensor to detect what state its in - standing or flat. My question is, is the G-Sensor exposed via the UWP Inclinometer sensor API? Thanks.

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

This would be a better question for the provider of the driver (STMicroelectronics). The version of the driver looks to me like one that only runs under windows 10 (st_accel.sys v. 2.2.2.21). I would guess that they would use the new API because it is much easier to code, but it is just a guess

So I have five options for a screen brightness: Darkest, Darker, Suggested, Brighter, Brightest. So the "Suggested" options, as it may seems, supposed to use the light sensor and adjust the screen brightness corespondedly but instead it has the fixed brightness level, right in the middle between Darker and Brighter. It can never be the "Darker" or the "Brightest" as you may expect, it has always fixed value.  So my question is: Are there a way to make the light sensor actualy do the usefull job?

Hi Everybody I have an issue with my daughters Yoga 2 11. Computer turns on, external monitor works, but the display has no backlight. As usual if looked at an angle or if I shine a light I can make out the screen, but other than that it has no backlight at all. Now, I did order a replacement screen and tried it out and I get the same simptoms. I returned it and got another replacement, still the same. I even got a replacement display cable and it keeps acting the same, so the only thing I can think of is the Lid sensor being stuck, however I do not know where its located and several google searches later I can't seem to find where it is or how I can bypass it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks

HI all, I have had a couple of occassions over the last 2 days where my keyboard and touchpad cease to work and the screen stays inverted. After googling the issue I found it had to do with the sensors in the Device Manager and when I disable the option and sleep and turn back on the PC all works fine.   Is this an issue anyone else has discovered? This along with the Delete and PrtSC keys not working is leading me to believe I may have a faulty unit... Appreciate any feedback. Regards, Matt

I have two week old X1 Yoga (20FQ) and the fingerprint sensor seems to work very unstable. It worked fine for a while and and suddenly in Windows 10 login it didn't work at all. It seems to read multiple times as when I put my finger close to sensor it immediately gives "Too many failed attempts" message and asks to login with PIN-code. I removed the device and re-installed the latest drivers from Lenovo support page and it worked again for two days. And now again I cannot login using fingerprint sensor. As the issue was resolved for couple of days with reinstalling the device, it might not be a HW-issue. Is there any good diagnostic tools available or is there a place to change the sensitivity of the sensor? Many thanks in advance for all the help!

Hi everyone, I'm experiencing a problem with my 2 days old Y2P. Every time I approach my right hand toward the screen, without even touching it, it goes black and the laptop goes to sleep mode (see the pictures attached for a better idea of the gesture). I have to press the keyboard to turn it on again. I figured that the system thinks that the screen was closed down and proceds with setting in place which was "sleep mode". I changed the setting of closing the laptop down to "do nothing", the problem is still there but instead of going to sleep mode the screen only goes dark and when a take of my hand the screen goes on again. I don't know where the proximity sensor is situated or if the detection of the closed laptop is made by the proximity which would a very stupid/cheap way to do that. Is anyone else having this issue? Are you guys at Lenovo aware of this issue and is there any fix on the way? Thank's to let me know if this issue software fixable or not so that I could return my laptop imediatly because it's very inconvegnant for a touch screen laptop. Thank's in advance for the answers ! In these positions the screen goes black and the laptop goes to sleep mode.

A:Yoga 2 Pro : Proximity Sensor Issue

@Djalil97,My Y2P does not go into sleep mode if i were to do that. If your hand is not touching the screen does it sleep? Mine sleeps correctly.There is an app in Win that has an icon that shows 4 modes. Ensure that is enabled. You can confirm it on the "Desktop" then at the taskbar there is a small icon showing the modes as well. If you were to turn it into tablet mode, is there any prompt that you are in tablet mode? I realize it was having issues going into tablet mode when it was out of the box, then I went to the apps area and turn that mode thingy on and it has been fine ever since.

Hi, Let me first explain what has been the path with my S1 for you to better understand the issue.At first i had ghosting problem and i decided to replace the screen, at the same time the notebook began to show some more problems, it would not boot at all some times until it went dead. At that point i decided to change the motherboard also. My model originally came with i7-4500, but i decided to get a motherboard with i5-4200.So now i have both changed the screen and the motherboard. Luckily the notebook is working now and seems all fine except the autorotation. I have done some reading and i know that it might be some issue with windows 10, but my concern is that it might be a hardware problem also related to the motherboard and lcd change. In Device manager i see the HID sensor collection v2 installed correctly but its not working. Also i noticed that when i change to tablet mode the touchpad does not disable, and i wonder if that might be a sensor issue too.So my main question is where is the sensor responsible for the autorotaion located?? i have a doubt if it is the p-sensor located under the battery but im not sure.What do tou guys think, should i investigate further in the software side or it might be hardware problem?? Thanks.

I'd like to report a bug with the Rotation Sensor, which I believe is handled by HID Sensor Collection V2 The rotation sensor will not detect auto-rotation after a total shutdown. The only way to get it to work again is for the laptop to enter Sleep Mode, then upon waking up the laptop, it will re-enable the rotation detection.

Hi Guys, I bought the Yoga 13 with Windows 8 but the non pro version.  I wanted the pro version on so I can connect to a domain so I did a clean install - where I deleted the partition with the old OS. Everything went great and all drivers that were are on the other partition that I left alone installed fine. Here is the problem:  I noticed that the auto-rotate functionality no longer works.  After doing some research I found that the HID Sensor Collection is what controls this.  If I look at the device manager I can see that their is a exclamation point next to the HID Sensor Collection Driver along with the Light Sensor driver. They both give me the error:  This device cannot start (Code 10). The process hosting the driver for this device has terminated. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the driver - this didn't help.I've tried searching for this driver online - no luck.I tried using the "update driver software" and it says:  Windows has determined that your driver software for this device is up to date. Any ideas how I can get the HID Sensor Collection working? Thanks for your help!

So my screen can suddenly blink on and off. It also turned my windows to sleep mode. I suspected screen cable connection but now I'm sure it's the lid sensor. Now it doesn't go to sleep mode anymore since I disabled "sleep when lid is closed" on power settings, now it's only blinks like crazy. When I start touching the area on the right side of my camera, the screen start blinking (don't even need a magnet, only touch!). I think I have messed up my warranty (I cracked the screen, after the lid switch broken tho). I can't search the lid sensor model on the internet, maybe it's integrated with the webcam microphone? Will this be expensive? I can't even find the lid sensor on t470 repair manual.

Something is weird with the fingerprint sensor. When it works, it works instantly and recognizes my fingerprint right away, no matter which part of the finger I use. The problem is that it's *constantly* forgetting my finger. It'll work fine, then I'll close my laptop and come back in a little bit and it doesn't work at all...fails three times and have to use my PIN. Once that happens it doesn't work again, at all, until I re-enroll my fingerprint at which time it works perfectly again for some time. I end up having to re-enroll once or twice a day. Lenovo Vantage pulled in a new version of the driver package today but it didn't help...the issue just happened again. Anyone know what the cause might be?

That way the system kept the CPU temperatures below 65C seemingly without using the fan. I wasn't able to see any settings in Windows power settings or in the Vantage app where I could adjust this behavior.  Needless to say performance was terrible. A reboot fixed this. It kind of looks like the X1Y3 got stuck in the "on battery power" plan, not sure how this could have happened. Any suggestions on where to find the settings corresponding to this incredibly conservative power plan? Or is there a chance this was not a power plan but rather a case of 'the fan didn't work'?  Preliminary theory: maybe the fact that the iPhone was on the TB3 dock plays a role here, since charging the iPhone draws significant power. I wonder if the X1Y3 can be tricked into thinking that it's on battery power when the TB3 dock can't deliver sufficient power on wake.

Whenever we're trying to access those linked tables we get the following error message:
We can bypass this issue by manually typing in the Login/Password within this error prompt.
What's strange is that we have ODBC setup to use the SQL Server Authentication:
That SHOULD allow us to not use Windows Authentication (as you can see it's trying to use the 'Guest' account on Windows 7.

The SQL Server's Security is setup to use both authentication methods:
Our SQL Server gives us an Error: 18456, Severity: 14, State: 11
A quick Google search explains that State 11 means, "Valid login but server access failure".

I will try to explain this in a clear way:

I am a current student who has a Desktop and a Laptop. My Desktop was a fully functioning 7 Home Prem install using an upgrade from Windows XP. Windows xp was already on this used Desktop (custom build) with no CD Key or Media available to me. Windows 7 upgrade was valid and paid for by me.

I recently began school again and setup my Mac Laptop with Bootcamp, did a Fresh install with the original Win 7 academic HP. Yes, this is a upgrade only version.

I purchased Windows Professional and applied the FULL product key to Windows Anytime Upgrade to my DESKTOP. This upgraded the 7 Home Premium to Pro and took over the "Upgrade Home Prem spot" and freed up my license.

I hadn't used my Laptop in a while (With the fresh HPrem install on it) and it expired. When I went to use my Laptop, it had expired. Foolishly, I tried to use my friends full key because I didn't know how to get the fresh install fixed on the Laptop and I thought "Well, I did pay for this product, lets jut get it working" After I updated the key to a new key, it will not let me change the 7 key BACK to the original paid for Home Premium.

So here's the thing. I'm installing my actual Winodws 7 OS onto a solid state drive, but I'm installing most everything else on my computer to the regular drive.

The reason for this is so that I can have windows 7 (and perhaps one or two programs) running wonderfully fast on the solid state, while everything else can go on the much larger regular drive (My solid state is only 56 GB, while my regular hard drive is 1TB)

Is there anything special I have to do during/after installation because of this? I've heard of things like defragmentation, prefetch, superfetch, etc; but I'm not well versed in specific windows programs and features, so I'm unsure if these are things I need to focus or worry about. I've had numerous issues in the past with my computer having mysterious errors that require a reinstall to fix, so I want to make sure I do things -right- this time!

Nope, other than changing the installation directory of the programs you wish to have on the larger mechanical drive when you install them (so they don't go into C:\Program Files on the SSD). You may also wish to move your profile there, if you expect it to be large (or perhaps certain folders from your profile only).

I recently purchased a Western Digital My Book Premium Edition external hard drive and installed it on my new HP A6157C computer. I felt I needed it because I wanted to protect my media files which are extensive. I am running Vista Home Premium.

I have had a problem with the power button on the external drive. It will not shut it down. I call for support to WD and was told to unplug the drive if I wanted to power it down. Did not make sense at all to me. The documentation says that all you have to do is hit the power button once and it will turn the device off.

Every time I power up MyBook, at some point, I have been getting a Driver Power State Failure and the computer shuts down. On the box of MyBook, it says it works with Windows Vista but all of the documentation online (help manuals, etc) on talk about Windows XP and older editions of Windows.

I am wondering if the driver power state failure is related to MyBook? I am contemplating removing the My Book - trying to figure out how to reformat it since I have information on it.

Any advice? It is possible that it is not compatible with Windows Vista?

Thanks for any information anyone can provide.
 

A:Driver Power State Failure Vista Home Premium

It looks like there may be a documented reason >>

And it looks like it might fit the bill, since your device appears to use that type of connection > http://tech.yahoo.com/ps/western-digital-my-book-premium-edition-wdg1c5000/1993706733

And your computer does have a firewire port I believe.

Try the update suggested.

Or are you connecting it through USB? If you have it connected to the firewire port, and the update does not help -- switch to USB

If all else fails, do the following >>

We might be able to tell this from the dump files that are created when you get a "blue screen":

I can run a debugging utility on the dump files if you do this:

1 > create a new folder on the desktop and call it "dumpcheck" or whatever you like
2 > navigate to %systemroot%\minidump and copy the last few minidump files to that folder.%systemroot% is normally c:\windows. They are numbered by date. You can paste that address in address bar to get there.
3 > close the folder and right click on it and select Send to Compressed (zipped) Folder.
4 > use the "manage attachments" in the "advanced" reply window to upload that zip file here as an attachment.

This might point us to a 3rd party driver causing the error, if one exists for it.
