Yoga 12 - Keyboard and Trackpad turn off in Laptop...

Q: Yoga 12 - Keyboard and Trackpad turn off in Laptop...

Problem: It seems as though my brand new Thinkpad Yoga 12 doesn't know that it's in laptop mode and turns the keyboard and trackpad off as soon as the log in screen (Windows 8.1) comes up. But if I lightly press the screen back, both come back to life. I let go and they switch off immediately. I also found out that if I put something under either one of the front corners of the laptop, the keyboard and trackpad work and stay on for longer ... with 90% success rate. What's weird is that when I go directly to the BIOS, then the keyboard works perfectly, which gives me the impression that it's a sensor problem. Touchscreen works always and perfectly. Previously troubleshooting attempts without success: Re-install all drivers. (Keyboard, sensor, etc.)Update all drivers.2x 8.1 Windows reinstall.All (non-Microsoft) services off.Sensors and HID keyboard off / uninstall.Safe Mode System Details: Windows 8.1, BIOS Version 1.03, i7, 8GB RAM, 256GB SSD, Wacom Digitizer etc.

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.

I want to remove the monitor, basically gut it, and turn the keyboard and trackpad of my laptop into a keyboard with built-in mouse for my desktop. It's an old laptop that I was thinking about throwing away anyway, so I might as well turn it into something useful.

look at attachment.

I want be able to connect that to my desktop with USB and be able to use it as both keyboard and mouse (have both the keyboard and trackpad work)

My desktop is right next to my bed, so I sometimes swing the monitor around and put the keyboard and mouse on the bed. But it's damn hard to use a mouse when you have bedsheets and blankets and other stuff that's soft as a surface.

Also, I can't have any compatibility problems, it needs to work with all 3 systems in my house that I may want to connect it to. Mac OS, Windows XP/Vista, and Linux (Ubuntu and Fedora)

 i have searched through the forums and have not found a decent solution for this problem.  When I power on my laptop from off, or wake it from sleep, I will randomly lose functionality to either the Touch Screen, or both the Keyboard and Trackpad, or at other times I will lose functionality to all three.  Other times all three regain functionality and work perfectly fine until the next time it sleeps or powers off.  I see the keyboard and trackpad in Device Manager at all times, even when they don't function, on the other hand, the touch screen with swing in and out of Device Manager, The touch screen works 100% of the time it shows in Device Manager, and fails to function 100% of the time it does not show.   Any Ideas Why?

Hello All. Wow!The more I mess with these things (trying an 11s and a 13" yoga pro 2) the more I find that they are choc full o' glitches.I really wanna like one of them but... I use Chrome in laptop mode on both and every time I enter a text field the virtual keyboard pops up.Yes, this would be appropriate if in tablet mode, but completely unnecessary and counterproductive in laptop mode. Can this be disabled somehow? ThanksB

A:Turn off virtual keyboard in laptop mode of Yoga Pro 2

Windows key + R > services.msc > "Touch screen keyboard and handwriting panel" > double-click and change it from "Automatic" startup to "Manual".This will mean that when in tablet mode, you will need to click the keyboard icon on the taskbar, when you want it. You can also make a startup script that uses the sensor to stop and enable the service when in laptop/tablet mode. Look into ahk.

I prefer the click approach on the Apple Macbook Air, where you can click anywhere on the trackpad to get a normal (left) click.  On the Yoga 13, you can click anywhere EXCEPT the lower-right side of the button, where it instead registers a right-click.  Thta's kind of annoying because I have to be aware of where on the trackpad I can click and where I can't. Does anyone know of a way to turn off the right-click area and just make the entire trackpad a left-click? I have already turned off the tap-click ability, so I'm just talking about clicks where you press the surface of the trackpad down.

Hello, i work in a school and the majority of our students use the Yoga 11e laptops. Recently we have recieved a few with keyboards and trackpads that seem to be disabled. My guess is that the laptop is stuck in some sort of "tablet" mode that triggers when the screen is flipped fully back.  Any help with this issue would be very much appreciated, thanks!

A:Yoga 11e disabling trackpad and keyboard

Hi JamesOasis.
Welcome to the forums.
 
Can you please post the full model number of the machines? Are you using Windows 10 ?
 
Let me share some ideas.....
 
Tablet mode on Windows 10 does not disable the trackpoing or the keyboard, if the computer is on Laptop layout. (not bended)
 
Let's try to see first if it is a configuration or software issues.
Check out the "Control Panel - Mouse" and see the "Thinkpad" tab. See if the trackpoint is disabled, just in case.
 

 
After that I will check the Mouse driver.
Check the support site for the Yoga 11e:
http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/products/laptops-and-netbooks/thinkpad-yoga-series-laptops/thinkpad-...
- Search for the mouse drivers, and just in case install the latest version.
 
If that does not work, I would get into a firmware and driver update rampage
Check out any BIOS update for the computer and be sure to use Windows update to be on the latest level. Check some other drivers on the Lenovo support site that may need to be updated.
 
This are only some ideas... let us know if you have any progress.
 
Regards

So I booted my PC after an update the other morning and the keyboard and trackpad weren't working. I tested the brightness keys on my keyboard and they still worked so it couldn't be a hardware issue there, and my mouse still worked so it was just the trackpad that had something wrong with it. The trackpad has a driver error (code 10) but the keyboard says it's working correctly. Here's what I've tried in hopes to resolve the issues so far: -Reinstalling trackpad drivers -Uninstalling both trackpad and keyboard drivers then restarting -System Restore -Chkdsk on both drives -A trick I read on these forums where you flip the device into tent mode, then after a few seconds flip it back round to laptop mode. I am utterly confused as to what's wrong here as nothing has even slightly helped my problem.

Hi everyone,  Today I noticed that my trackpad is not exactly flush with my chassis. There is a tiny gap where the trackpad ends and the chassis begins. The gap is bif enough for a piece of paper to slide through. This is concerning since dust can not get into the chassis. I have never noticed it before, and I have never dropped or damaged the computer. It may be a manufacturer error, and I may have never noticed it. I have had this computer for 5 months. Any ideas? Would lenovo cover this under warranty? Is it even worth going through the warranty trouble to get it fixed? The functionality of the trackpad remains unaffected. I have attached a photo so you can see what i mean. I have also attached a photo of the opposite side of the trackpad (left side) to show the difference. Thank you

Since I originally got a Yoga 370 I noticed that if I flip the screen 270-degrees to use the device as a tablet, then flip the screen back to laptop orientation, I can't use the device as a classic laptop right away because the trackpad stays disabled. The only workaround I've found for this is to press the power button off, then on. After the device comes back on, the trackpad's enabled again. But that's clunky; it takes at least 20 seconds to make that transition because I have to log in again too. I expect the trackpad to just re-enable once the screen's <180 degrees again, OR for there to be some 1-touch thing I can do on the screen (e.g. exit "tablet mode") that doesn't require logging in again. What am I missing?

Dell Inspiron 510M 1.25Gb running XP Home - have been around PCs since early 80s so generally know my way around. I think problem is more a Windows app software installation breakage.

Issue is that after recent reboot, I have no built-in keyboard or trackpad. An external USB mouse works fine but external USB keyboard does not. "Device Manager" shows yellow exclamation mark. (Computing with a mouse and the on-screen mouse-enabled keyboard is a tad slow !)

This has happened once before & despite valiant attempts, the only thing that worked was a restore to (after 2 attempts) the earliest restore point still available. I had tried reinstalling drivers and a repair install but neither worked.

Due to my probably poor habit of ignoring those app software requests to reboot after an update/install, combined with my long periods between reboots (I use hibernate), I suspect that there was a line of apps with "run once on reboot" instructions to perform. And this time, the earliest restore point is after my last good reboot so restore did not save me this time. Partly as I have been hammering the laptop heavily recently.

Device manager shows the following for "keyboard" and "trackpad" : "A driver (service) for this device has been disabled. An alternate driver may be providing this functionality. (Code 32)"

This seems to suggest that maybe some other software has installed a filter (or something) to capture these devices. I sus... Read more

Hello everyone,

Greetings from Ecuador. A friend brought me a computer of another friend who has problems with his HP Pavilion G4 laptop. The laptop keyboard and trackpad is non-responsive when the Windows 7 boot. I combed the web and tried the many suggestions to get it working again but could not get the keyboard to work.

When booting up, the keyboard works; I was able to enter the bios and reset the configuration. But once windows starts, the keyboard no longer works. In the device manager, Windows showed that it cannot initialized the drivers both the keyboard (standard PS/2) and mouse (PS/2), with error code 37.

Below is what I have tried so far:

1. Before windows starts, the keyboard works; I'm able to go into bios and change configuration.
2. Attached an external USB keyboard, it does not work but works fine on another computer. An external USB mouse works though so I was able to try some of the steps below.
3. Start up in safe mode -> keyboard and track pad does not work there either.
4. Tried to restore from previous restore point -> there are no restore point to restore to.
5. Uninstalled both standard drivers for keyboard and mouse, reboot; keyboard and track pad still does not work.
6. Uninstalled both standard drivers for keyboard and mouse, scanned for hardware changes; drivers get reinstalled; keyboard and track pad still non-responsible.
7. Read about Avast problems with non-responsive drivers, but Avast is not installed on this system.

Seems to be some sort of system drivers corruption; but it would not be an easy fix without any keyboard/mouse working.

IMHO a Clean Rinistall will be a good fix.

I have an Asus G73jh with synaptics touchpad. Everything has been working finr since I got it, but recently, after not having installed any windows updates in a few months, I went ahead and ran the updates. Now the built in keyboard and mouse do not work inside windows.

The keyboard works fine in BIOS and I couldn't find any relevant options within the bios settings. However, once windows 7 boots, and I'm at the login screen, the keyboard and built in touchpad don't work at all. My wireless mouse works fine, I haven't been able to try a USB keyboard, but I imagine it would work fine if I tried it.

In the device manager, both devices ate listed and "working properly" without any errors.

I tried looking up a few of the updates that were installed and couldn't find anything that seemed relevant other than one update which apparently changes the euro sign. I uninstalled that one and it still made no difference.

I have searched online for possible solutions but everything I've found mentions reinstalling windows or rolling back to a restore point. I would prefer to avoid either one of those and rather just find the direct cause of the problem so it can be addressed.

If anybody has any ideas other than the "on screen keyboard" please let me know. I really would appreciate it.

A:[SOLVED] Laptop built in keyboard and trackpad not working.

Situations like yours is what System Restore is for. Just restore to the date and time before this happened. It will not touch your personal files.
If you don't want to do that, First boot to Bios, go to Integrated Peripherals, look for Legacy USB or Keyboard. If it is disabled, Enable it. then go to the Device Manager, and right click the Keyboard and Mouse and choose Properties/Drivers/Roll Back Driver.
You can also go to the Asus Driver page ASUSTeK Computer Inc. -Support- Drivers and Download G73Jh and download the Touchpad driver for your model.

Heyy there, good people! Haven't gone here in quite a while! But tragically, I'm in a pickle, one I didn't cause for once :P
I got a new laptop a few weeks ago. A Sony VAIO VPCEB3KFX to be exact (oh my lord, just $650 for 500GB HD, 4GB RAM and an i5, couldn't resist!)
...but a few days ago.....something happened.

I was doing a curves adjustment on a fractal I made in Photoshop (yes, I'm that specific) when my ALPS touchpad freaked out on me and I suddenly found myself without the ability to left-click or tap-to-click. My (very) temporary solution was to switch the right and left-click settings, and that served me well...
UNTIL (bum bum BUMMM)
The touchpad decided to stop working entirely.

I restart my laptop, try to do as much as I can with the keyboard alone (no access to a USB mouse), and manage to download and install a new driver for it. Restart again, start typing my password...keyboard stops working 7 characters in. lkjaskjlkjlskjlfdskpwaeaprkvaslr; (that's probably what it would've looked like if my keyboard logged my inputs after it died)

Hi all, I just purchased a new yoga 710 15 inch laptop. Is there any other way to turn off the backlit keyboard other than Fn+spacebar? Anytime I turn on the laptop, the backlight turns on and will not turn off with those keystrokes. It is only a minor nuisance to have the backlight always on, but I would of course love to be able to turn it off in order to save battery. Is there anything else I can do, or is this just a defective machine? If it is defective, do you all think it's worth sending it in to fix the defect? I can't decide so I'd appreciate opinions, but hopefully there is some way that the keyboard can be turned off.

You can try turning on the machine using the Novo button and set BIOS setup to defaults , check on version of BIOS if you have latest from the support site.
 
If you need further guide best that you call in technical support and they would be able to recommend you ways to proceed depending on the scenario and how the process of repair works so you can decide on your options too.

The only way I know is to disable device installation, then disable the keyboard driver. So first import the attached registry tweak, then disable the laptop keyboard in the device manager and reboot.

You won't be able to install new devices, including new flash drives, USB drives, etc, unless you disable the policy by changing the dword parameter to 0.

I have searched and people suggested getting some external button which I am not looking for while others suggest hibernating the laptop which is also not an option as I use it only few times a week.
Thanks

If there's an option in the BIOS to turn it on by keyboard like on desktops, it might be worth a shot.

Can you better explain what you're wanting to do?

If you're referring to a "hard shutdown", press in and hold in the power button for 4 - 5 seconds until it powers off, then release the power button.

Seriously sick of randomly clicking because my hands are too fat.  I know that my previous dell had an option where it would automatically shut off the trackpad if an external mouse was detected.  Is that available on the 13?

Hi! I bought this one 2  days ago and I'm amazed how bad the keyboard is. Just check the video:https://youtu.be/n4oN6H3x2nQThe keyboard actually doesn't match the photos: enter key is weird form and there are two \ keys. Space key sticks depending on which part of it you click. It also makes a weird noise. Definitely not the quality you expect from a premium model. I would actually be happy to return it, but I'm in another country for a while so looks like I'm in trouble. This is the second Yoga I have, but seems that I will never buy a Lenovo again.

Yeah, you see a lot of complaings about those keyboards, they are trying to make them too thin in you ask me. I would return it if you do not like it, even if you have to pay shipping.   The Thinkpad line have much better keyboards, and in my opionion are far more durable too.  Good Luck,

My Yoga 710-11IKB Laptop keyboard has various keys that do not work when pressed on the actual laptop keyboard, there is no problem with the touchscreen keyboard but using the normal keyboard is very difficult.
