Hi there,

I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate on a Thinkpad T40. I've tried two different sets of drivers, the Generic PnP drivers that Windows provides, and also finding a none WDDM driver for my specific chipset. Both times, Full screen video just becomes a mess of vertical lines flashing all over my screen...

This is from any source, Windows Media Player, youtube, other online sources, etc.

Has anyone ever dealt with this before? Any help is appreciated!

Download Speccy to find out what Video Card you have, the Lenovo site says ATI Radeon, but download it to be sure. And then go to the website of the manufacturer to download the drivers.

Recently, full screen games have been minimizing about every 1 to 2 minutes. I've tried everything I can, like disabling non windows related processes, disabling startup programs, uninstalling my printer software and other ambiguous software and doing a virus scan.

Hey everyone, first post so please be gentle, hehe.

I am running a gaming rig with Vista 64, and it was running flawlessly until yesterday (well, as flawlessly as can be expected). Suddenly, applications running in full screen are randomly minimizing to the taskbar. This phenomenon is occurring with both games and video, whether the video is streaming (Hulu) or being run through iTunes.

At first, I thought the AVG Resident Shield was the issue, since AVG was the only software that I had updated in recent memory (from version 8.0 to version 9.0), so I disabled it. When this didn't help, I disabled AVG entirely after closing my internet connection, and tried running video. The problem was still present. Today, after the minimizing occurred again, I updated my video driver to the latest version (nVidia) and it still minimized. Finally, I tried downloading and running Malwarebytes Anti-Malware on the off chance that I had a malware infection, but after a full scan, only two items were found, and the problem is still occurring after their removal.

Any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated at this point, and thank you in advance for your help.

Hello. I'm running windows 7 on an HP PC. I'm having a problem with all my games minimizing by themselves. They are all minimizing approximately every 5 minutes. This is something that started very recently. It doesn?t give an error message, just minimizes to the task bar. Once I click on the game logo in the taskbar, the game comes back up, but immediately minimizes again. Clicking on the logo a second time brings the game back to full size for 5 minutes or so, then the cycle starts all over again.
There are no error codes.
I?ve checked my computer, over and over, and everything is fine, there are no issues or anything running in the background that hasn?t been all along. I?ve cleaned everything, and defragmented. Had a program check for errors, nothing was found. Also ran my programs for malware and for a virus, computer is clean.
Does anyone have any ideas? I know there's another thread about this on here, but it's old. Also, I did try their recommendations, didn't work.

Have you tried doing a system restore to the point before this started happening? if not; i would try that. Click start, programs, accessories, system tools, then system restore and try and find a date closest to before this all started happening. Give that a shot if you have not already done so and see what happens.

Is there any way I can not make it minimize without putting Age of Conan in a windowed mode? Thanks for your help guys!

A:Gaming full screen, but Minimizing when I click on 2nd Monitor

you'll probably need to adjust either your mouse settings (I think there is a workaround for Logitech mice) or else edit a resource file in the game so that it allows the mouse to go out of game without minimizing the game - but I haven't heard of a way to do that thus far.

I've been having an issue on my W8.1 Lenovo T540P regarding screen borders. No matter what resolution I use, the display borders don't react correctly to mouse clicks. Clicking RMB doesn't invoke menu, clicking LMB changes focus from current window to something else. It looks like the very last pixels - top, bottom, left and right; except for bottom-left where the power user menu is which seems to work correctly. This is especially annoying when I'm trying to launch anything in full screen mode, because the application gets minimized whenever mouse hits any border and the button is clicked.

I noticed that if I am in the metro menu, the RMB works correctly, meaning that it brings the metro's menu as usual... That's why I think it might be metro's fault, but I haven't found a solution yet. I tried updating drivers, removing any software which might cause this problem but to no avail. Does anyone have any idea?

Hey. So I've had this issue for a few days now. Any game I play or any movie I watch, if its on full screen, it will lose focus or minimize to desktop within 1-2 minutes. There are no error messages, and I can't find a single thing to help me. Yesterday, I downloaded a registry cleaner, and after it cleaned the errors, I could use full screen apps very well. Then I shut my computer down for the night, and when I woke up today, and started the computer, the problem started as well. Any ideas?

A:All full screen applications keep minimizing to desktop / losing focus

Hello and welcome to SevenForums.

Do you have a restore point or backup image prior to when this problem started?
If so, you may be able to backout any changes that caused this.

What registry cleaner did you run?
Do you have a log of what it changed/cleaned?
Can you run your registry cleaner again, and just analyze what changes it will make?
If so, do you see something that was cleaned last time, but is back again?

I don't use/recommend/trust registry cleaners, but you have already used one...

It sounds like the registry cleaner fixed the problem until you re-booted.
So, maybe re-analyzing with the registry cleaner will help identify the cause of the problem.
And, that would be a good thing

Did you recently install any new programs, or re-configure your current programs?

You may have a program/add-on/toolbar... that is "stealing focus" and causing this.

I would look at all the startup programs in msconfig/startup...
- Disable anything not needed (don't disable AntiVirus/AntiMalware,...)
- reboot and see if the problem continues.

You can also try re-booting in Safe Mode to see if you can duplicate the problem.

Unfortunately, malware is always a possibility, so you can run AV/AM scans to see if anything is found.

I noticed that this thread was in the ME forum and it didn't really get a response that helped me, I also tried posting this to the windows 7 forum, and while it's only been about a day since I posted that (I realize you asked for 72 hours.) I realized that this might be better suited to this part of the forum instead, and decided to try here. So uh, sorry about any trouble that caused.

Okay, so about a week ago, I started experiencing this problem where my windows would just go inactive; full screen applications would suddenly minimize, text applications would suddenly become inactive as above, and I'd have to click on them to get them running again. This is pretty annoying, especially when I'm running a computer game or working off of a written document.

After looking around, I thought the problem might be focus stealing, but after trying to change the registry values and using tweakui, I got nothing, and later found out the values I was using basically do nothing in vista. I bought a copy of Windows 7, figuring it might fix the issue if it's an OS problem, and that didn't really work, either.

malwarebytes, spybot, AvG, and even CleanUp didn't find anything to fix.

I've tried defragmenting the hard drive, removing undesirable programs, got rid of AIM, Acrobat reader, and the like, and even reinstalled Steam. I've also tried altering startup programs with no lasting success.

I posted a similar question earlier and people referred me to the Yoga (much appreciated).  However, I was interested in the 2.6 lb carbon version with touch screen capabilities.  Asus has a Spin 7 model that is very good at 2.65lb, but I miss the red mouse toggle in the middle of the keyboard and Asus's track pad was designed too large....causing unintended tapping.  The Yoga, while nice, is heavier than I was looking for.  The 14 inch screen is about 3.3lb? the 12 inch at 3? I thought that some of the earlier Thinkpad Carbons had touch screen and was hoping they would make a return soon.  Thanks,

When you turn on the laptop all you get is the back-light.  You don't get the splash screen, POST or anything else for that matter. I've tried using the FN+F7 to make sure it wasn't set to projector mode but that didn't do anything.  It's like the power cable to the LCD is connected but the data cable is disconnected.  I suspect this is the case due to the screen going "weird" as the user puts it.  I also suspect that it might have been dropped. What I am wondering is if there's a BIST (Built-in Self Test) for the LCD or anything like that.  I'd love to avoid the support charges. Also, the numbers on the white tags on the back of the laptop have worn off, is there a way to get the serial number without the original paperwork?

Hi Issue: Thinkpad X1 Carbon 5th Gen black screen / 'screen off' on resume from sleep I know this issue has been posted about several times regarding the X1 series but .... none of those threads seem to have any kind of answer to this problem. This seems like quite a horrendous issue for a +1500 to have !! Constantly 'hard rebooting' and losing all my open work is seriously seriously annoying. Please note: My drivers are 100% up to date based on Lenovo's own update software. I have all official Windows 10 updates issued to date (21 aug 17). These are the patterns I've noticed: - It doesn't always replicate the same behaviour: after resume from sleep sometimes it's 'black' and other times it's fine. I'd say 66% of the 'lid openings' it's OK but 33% of cases it's not.- I've found that if I shut the lid again and reopen (often 3 or more times and waiting 30+ seconds on each open then 30+ seconds on each close) then I can eventually 'force' it to turn the screen on.- If I 'manually' set the unit to sleep from the start menu rather than just closing the lid, I'm pretty certain that it *does not* exhibit this problem. I'll be 100% certain once I've tried this a few more times.-  I've removed all USB devices from the laptop one-by-one and waited for the problem to reoccur thus ruling out any single or combination of USB devices.- I have the 'lock screen' shown when it does successfully resume from sleep. - The screen 'blackness' looks t...

Unit fully charged; worked fine when last shut down. On first power up, screen is snow only, all horizontal lines. The bottom 2/3 of the screen is white, while the upper 1/3 is black.  When left on for a minute, the screen gradually opens to full but changes from white & black color to multiple shades of Gray/purple.  Also, the centre of the screen then develops a vertical line 1.5 cm wide, while the far right hand side of the screen (1/4 from right border back toward centre) shows multiple shades and varying widths of vertical lines.  All the while, the screen is in constant flux, flickering, going lighter then darkening, similar to a TV station going off air when the power goes out.   Looking for any help you can provide.   -- Unit was not dropped, or the screen did not have anything heavy placed on it.  On time out and shut off due to battery saver mode, hitting the enter key to refresh the screen there is no change except, for a brief 1-2 seconds, a greenish, horizontal line, approx 2.0 cm wide, appears at the very top of the screen and then disappears.   Unable to read anything on screen.  Hard power up makes no difference.   Model 3444 CUU  S/N xxxxx.

I've just updated my X1 Carbon 3rd Generation to Windows 10. and there are three problems. I'm posting them in one message because they may be related.The Intel Chpset Driver from the support website will not install. It geest as far as the Intel branded installer then says it can't find "setupchipsetx64.msi", even if you browser to the file location.Intel Management Engine 12 appears to install without error messages but every time I run System Update it says it needs to be installed, so either it hasn't installed or it has but System Update doesn't recognise it.The cellular connection option has disappeared from Windows 10 and the Lenovo Wireless Power Settings app. My Sierra Wireless EM7345 appears without error in Device Manager under Network Adapters, it also appears as a GNSS Sensor undeer Sensors, but Windows cannot start this device because its configuration information is missing or damaged in the registry (error 19). It appears in Network Adaptors with a strong signal and is enabled but there's just no way of using it.I have of course installed ALL the updates from th support website apart from the two I've noted which won't install and the two enterprise updates which I don't need.. Windows Update also says the system is up to date. Very disapointing because the 4G adaptor was an expensive option to add to this laptop.

Got my first thinkpad x1 laptop 2016 Type FB20 and unfortunately touchscreen is not working. It does not show touch device detail under Device Manager > HID. I tried to find touch screen driver in lenovo support portal but not able to find any such driver.Please let me know if any of you faced similar issue.

As the X1 Carbon 4th Gen isn't available with a touchscreen, that's no real surprise. If you want a very similar device that has a touchscreen, have a look at the X1 Yoga.

Hello folks, We have a user with a ThinkPad X1 Carbon 4th generation Windows 10 that was working fine stand alone and when connected to Ultra docking station.  All of sudden she took it off of the doc to go to meeting, opened it back up and now when anyone or any user logs in (including local administrator users) the desktop is black with the start button there but does nothing when clicked.  The taskbar is there with the date, not even able to open the date, or type anything in the search. We have managed to open Task Manager (using Ctrl-Alt-Del) and able to open a cmd prompt and run Windows Explorer in order to back up the data.  We tried safe mode, same thing.  We are stumped, never seen this before and frustrating. Anyone seen this or know how to resolve?I don't want to restore

I have a Thinkpad X1 Carbon and take very good  care of it and keep it in a laptop bag with padding. Today I used it, closed the lid and put it back in my bag. When I went home and wanted to use is I took it out of the laptop bag and opened up the lid and there was a black block at the top left of the screen.  I noticed a crack but is in the inside of the screen and not on the outside and I can't feel anything with my finger or I can't see any scratch or mark. There is a vertical pixelated line from the top of the bottom of the screen. The only thing I can think that could have caused is was when i opened the lid I used the top left corner to  open the screen. All I can think of is that because the lid is so thin and  flexible putting pressure on one part of the lid caused the problem. If there is zero external damage cause will the warranty cover fixing the screen?

I always tell people that it is best to use 2 hands or, at least, to open from the center.  I agree that the lid is thin and flexible.  I suggest taking it to a dealer and talking to a person.  With screen problems, it is best if both parties are looking at the same thing.

Whenever I maximize a program with a dark background (e.g. Spotify, Ableton Live), the entire screen gradually dims (though 'Brightness' is still supposedly at 100%). When I close/minimize the dark program and open one with a bright/white background, the screen gradually brightens again. I've tried:- Disabling 'Dynamic Brightness Control' in Lenovo Vantage's settings- Disabling 'Adaptive Brightness' in Windows Power Options (Advanced Settings)- Updating display drivers Anyone find a fix for this? I'm running Windows 10 Pro on a new X1 Carbon (6th Gen).

Hello there!I've been having some issues with my screen on 2 gen X1 Carbon - it freezes and sometimes it starts to flash at the edges after I close my notebook and open it again, so I have to try to move it into the right position so it can unfreeze. Sometimes pressing on the certain places helps, at the bottom of the display near these dark lines. First I thought that the problem is in the display cable, so I installed a new one, but it didn't help. I noticed that touchscreen works fine even when display is blacked out. What should I do, maybe someone had some simular issues? Sorry for pics quality, I can attach better ones if needed. Thanks for any help!

This is my first Levovo product and my first laptop.  Always before I have used a desktop and have been accustomed to using the F11 key to go full screen at times.  How do I do that on this laptop?  I'm frustrated and confused!Oh, and Hi!  I'm new here.
