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'm an owner of Y520 that I bought less than a month ago and in the past few days, I have been experiencing a strange keyboard issue. At seemingly random times, several random keys will become completely unresponsive.The keys will work fine all day except for a few minutes here and there. For example, my 'e' 'g' 'h' '8' '9' and 'FN' keys just stopped working for about 3 minutes, now they are obviously working fine again. Sometimes it's for more than a few minutes and can be a nuisance.I've also noticed sometimes holding the key down for a while will fix it. I'm wondering if there's some sort of fix that I can try when this happens so that I don't have to take it to an authorized service center.Furthermore, I've noticed that there are more people having the same issue with the same keys as there are videos about it on Youtube. I bought my laptop in Europe but currently live in Canada so I am a bit worried if it is possible to find an authorized repair center. Thanks for any help.

Where can I find information on the keyboard layout, specifically about the "highlighted" keys (w,a,s,d, and \ with red bar, 7 w circled Y)? I'm assuming they have special functions. I couldn't find anything in the manual or searching online. Thanks

Hi, Recenlty i purchased the Y520 (2 weeks ago). In the beginning i had issues with USB devices, everything works except USB HDD or pendrives. This solved itself, but now i have another weird issue. This time the keyboard does weird. The E, J, and backspace dont work suddenly. Sometimes they work, and sometimes they dont. I dont know exaclty what is creating this, but it does also happen when using a bootdisk ala ultimatebootCD. Can you tell me what to do? WHere i purchased it, told me that Lenovo changed their warranty (DOA) and that i have to wait 3 weeks. What can/shall i do?

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

Hey there, I found a similar topic but unfortunately, there was not a final response that solved my problem. I own a Yoga 13 Ideapad without the backlight function, unfortunately. Recently I watched a video of a keyboard replacement and I would like to do that with mine in order to replace it with a backlight keyboard. The problem is that I am not sure if my model features the needed connections. The model number is: 219159342273 if that helps.  I found backlight keyboards described as "original" Lenovo parts for about 30?. Is that realistic or fake?Thank you for your help!!!

Hey guys!

I recently got a Casio keyboard, with a new MIDI cable.

I'm a music artist and I'm totally new with this 'keyboard-to-computer-via-MIDI' stuff.

I don't know how to connect my Casio Keyboard to my computer with a MIDI cable. I've mostly been using Mixcraft's music library, but I want to start something new with my new keyboard.

Can someone PLEASE tell me how I can connect my keyboard to my laptop via MIDI?

I've looked at other forum posts and contacted a few music artists..........they had nothing.

Please help!

Hi. As the title says, I was using the notebook normally when the keyboard suddenly stopped working. It also doesn't work in the BIOS. I know the following methods probably wouldn't work, but just to be sure, I've already tried restoring the system, disconnecting the battery, reinstalling drivers and updating the BIOS (it was already the latest one). Any ideas? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

Hi there

It seems that these days external keyboards only come in BLACK with Silver letters on the keys.

I prefer the old WHITE / CREAM ones with BLACK letters on the keys. I've resuscitated two old keyboards with the PS2 round connector --fortunately I still have the PS2--->USB connectors so the keyboards work. I've also got the USB==>USB wireless adapter so I can still use these WIRELESSLY (except for the USB-->to the wireless transmitter) but good enough so the keyboard is effectively a Wireless one.

I find the white keyboards much easier to use if I have to LOOK at the keys -- especially if I'm using different language keyboards.

Just a gripe - but I'm surprised all the external keyboards I see are always BLACK ones.

Cheers
jimbo

I haven't used my Ideapad U430 Touch much recently but it's not powering on. The screen doesn't come on. The GPU/CPU fan sometimes spins about 1/4 of a rotation, the power button light, the keyboard backlight, the side battery and HDD lights all just flash white every 5 seconds or so - continuously.  I've tried the various things people have recommended - unplugging battery, removing Power and pressing the power button 10 times with a second pause in between, then holding the power button for 30 or 60 seconds. No change. Any ideas? The above happens regardless of whether the battery is in or not. I've swapped out the RAM, no changes.

A:does this Keyboard match my lenovo well??

Well, seeing as most keyboards are the same in some way. This overall looks like a decent keyboard. USB, everything standard. As far as the build and quality, the reviews sound pretty decent on Newegg. As for the price, $24 for a USB Back-lit Keyboard with free shipping isn't half bad at all.

Go for it!

So this computer is less then a year old, bought it in august 2014.The A key fell off while I was using the computer. I was not able to reattach the key. After talking to the support at the store where I bought it, they said to send it in for repair. I did and now Medion who handle the repairs for Lenovo want me to pay for a new keyboard and labor.I have photographic evidence of the state of the computer before I send it in. Not a scratch on it. Does Lenovo not have warranty on laptop keyboards?  Is there any written document with information on how long the estimated life span of a Lenovo keyboard is? What parts of the laptop are under warranty? Thanks.

A:Lenovo Y50-70 keyboard warranty

You can read through the warranty book but I dont think it will ever mention about specific parts warranty -
https://download.lenovo.com/consumer/mobiles_pub/lenovo_y40-70_y40-80_y50-70_y50-80_y50-70%20touch_y...
 
However, your keyboard should be covered by warranty unless ofcourse there is visible proof of mishandling of the laptop.
 
You can call Lenovo customer sevice and talk to a supervisor. This is not the official Lenovo forum and I believe you need to talk to a Lenovo rep.

I recently ordered a Yoga 710 11 inch 2-in-1. I just read that the keyboard has been changed so that where the "SHIFT" key has been for 100 years on the right side of the keyboard, the page up and down keys  now are and it's extremely difficult to type?

Have been looking at a laptop for my neighour, she was in hospital for a few weeks recently and the laptop was left without mains power, the battery went flat. Upon reconnecting it to the mains, although the laptop boots into windows normally, neither the keybaord nor laptop work. Few things i've observed. i can connect a USB mouse and that works fine, i can navigate around the login screen. if i connect a USB keyboard (tried two) they dont work, even simple things like caps / num lock buttons to get lights on the keyboard. I also observed some keys on the keyboard do function, F12 and F11 do dim and brighten the screen, F9 does turn the screen on and off. I've tried other buttons such as F6 to re-enable the touchpad, no success, F7 doesnt appear to disable wifi etc. I've tried removing the battery / mains and rebooting, doesnt work. I've tried removing both battery and mains and holding the power button down for a couple of minutes, then re-applying power, didnt work I also tried removing the battery only and holding down the power, also didnt work. I've tried holding down the F12 key upon powering to see if i can get into the bios, laptop just booted normally. Are there any other suggestions to get the keyboard enabled?
