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.)

Hi, I've read some posts about other fn keys not working, but can't find anything about these two (fn+q and fn+e). I just reinstalled windows 8.1 (and am running dual boot ubuntu) and now these two keys have no effect.  Does anyone know which drivers are responsible? Or have any other ideas? Thanks.

Ya, if you look in the applications section of our Drivers and Manuals, you can download the Acer Launch Manager. Good place to start, but I'm not 100% on what software is required for the keystrokes, and not all software can be downloaded (due to royalties and other legal issues).

Touchpad is working only intermittently. Under Human Interface Devices, I have 2 entries for 12C HID Device. When the pad stops working, one will have a ! in a triangle with a code 10 error. I can uninstall, hard shut down (note: restart does nothing. Hard shut down is required) and have the touchpad back, usually throughout startup. It will disappear again just after startup. Rinse, repeat four or five times, and it will work for maybe a couple of hours. I've removed everything from Startup. I've updated using Lenovo Vantage and Windows Update. I am at the point of considering a factory reset, but I'd rather not do that if anyone has a suggestion? I've been dealing with this about two weeks. Not sure if it was in conjunction with a Windows Update, but I wouldn't be terribly surprised. Note: If I uninstall both 12C HID Device entries, rather than uninstalling the second entry, the first reappears with the warning sign.

When I initially booted my Yoga 920, pressing F1 F2 F3 work fine for volume controls with a UI prompt for the function.Pressing F4 toggled the mic mute with a UI prompt.F5 could be used to refresh a webpage.F6 toggled the use of the touchpad, but did not show a UI prompt.F7 toggled airplane mode with UI prompt.F8 toggled camera function with UI prompt.F9 locks fine.F10 works fine too.F11 F12 toggles brightness with UI prompt. I don't know what happened along the way, but now F4 (mic), F7 (airplane mode), F8 (camera) stopped working. Nothing happens when I press the buttons. I'm running Windows 10 Home, version 1709, OS Build 16299.125. Maybe someone can help me in restoring the functions of those buttons? And additionally, maybe add a UI prompt for F6 (touchpad)?

Since I had forgotten which specific key was needed to get into the bios, I wasrapidly pressing all of the F keys. The end result was this menuu which is clearly different from the others.
 
I didn't change any of the options but I know that some users have looked for them in the past.
 
I took images of some of the menus, but after restarting, I can't seem to get backinto the less stripped down bios menu (just the basic one). (I did this a few days ago, and since then I have been unable to figure out the proper keys or find much info online about it)
 
Aside from random conbinations, has anyone figured out the exact key combination to get into the more detailed bios menu?
 
I added the images I took to an imgur album. Sorry for the poor quality, but overall, there is a more detailed bios menu available, but I can't seem to find much info on getting back into it.

Hi everyone. I recently installed Windows 7 64-bit on a new V310-15ISK which came with FreeDOS. I got all the drivers installed ok, everything seems to be working fine, except for a couple of quirks: 1. Airplane mode hotkey (F7) is not turning the wireless adapter on/off as it should. Instead I get a blank wireless status window which tells me to turn my wireless adapter on first (which it already is).2. Somewhere in Lenovo Energy Management it says it can't give further info about the battery because it's not an original Lenovo battery  (which is a lie). I had to try a few ACPI drivers for the hotkeys to work as there was none on the product support page. I settled on 4eem02ww.exe which is the most recent functional version I found on the web. Can anyone point me to a proper ACPI driver that lets Airplane mode enable/disable the wireless adapter (and displays all battery info)? Cheers.

Nothing worked out, not safe mode, nor win 7 install disc, or northon ghost backup untill I've reseted the PTT key in BIOS for which i've read on the internet it might cause the loading windows freeze screen.

Hey all! I've been sporting my Lenovo Edge 15 for about two years now. I run Windows 10 and have done so since I first got the computer (I believe when I purchased it I upgraded right away). If you need more specifics I have this PC right here! Airplane mode works if I manually activate it via the wi-fi settings, but the hotkey, F7, won't turn it on/off.  The key doesn't appear to be broken, just the hotkey function it carrys, as using Fn activates the basic F7 function. All my other hotkeys work perfectly. Anyone have the same issue? Know of a fix?

Hello,I'm using the older enterprise build of Lenovo Vantage. All the function keys work fine except airplane mode on F7 - F7 works so it's not the key that's the problem. There is no way to configure these keys in the lenovo app and I suspect there's a driver problem. I can manually enable Airplane mode on Windows 10.I read that making sure Lenovo's utility.exe is running is supposed to help, but that feature has been consolidated into Vantage, has it not? Besides I couldn't find .exes for my model for Windows 10 and I don't necessarily want to meddle with this.Is it possible that some permissions or settings are the cause of the disabled airplane key?

However, under the keys, it's even worse. I'm curious, how can I remove the keys, throughly clean them and reinstall them. Another thing, my entire keyboard has smooth keys from all the use.

This is pretty much the basis of my problem and it happens in that order always. I got a new HP Probook 4530s less than a year ago and have barely used it because of this annoying problem. I'll be on the web doing my thing and just using the arrow keys to scroll up and down a page. After some time, the arrow keys will just stop working so then I'll go to the scroll bar. Next my touchpad will start highlighting everything no matter where I tap and then any links I click will open up in a new window. I've even attached a USB mouse and get the same results with the highlighting and new windows. The browser I typically use is Firefox. I loathe Internet Explorer.
 
I just can't seem to figure out why it's doing this. It updates itself almost every boot and is fine otherwise.

1. I own a U430 Touch now since a few days. I swapped the HDD out for a SSD and did a clean install of Win10 and installed all drivers offered on the support page. It seems that Im missing the energy management driver (which is required for using the dedicated airplane mode key) with the utility.exe or something but I cant find that energy management driver anywhere. Can somebody point me to a fix for that issue? Or if there is none is there a work around?
 
2. I noticed that the notebook makes strange static noises which originate from the speakers. No matter if the volume is turned up or down or mute is engaged, the static noise persists. Is this a defect or a software issue? The driver offered on the lenovo support page for speakers is from RealTek.

With the new airplane tray icon, I find that after I resume from a hibernate the icon is not working all the time.

With some testing, I found that if I resumed from hibernate right away then the problem didn't always appear. But after being hibernated a few minutes or more, the problem has appeared every time.

If I turn off airplane mode using the notifications tray icon, the airplane tray icon remains in the tray. I can go to wifi and connect manually, but the airplane tray icon is still there. Hovering over it with the mouse pointer and it says wifi is not connected, even though it is.

In addition, once the airplane icon stops working so does the speaker icon. I can't get left or right mouse clicks to do anything. This behavior of the speaker icon started after the (November) update, which I just installed last week.

Only a restart or shutdown/start clears both these issues.

Hi, Normally, you just need to turn off SmartSense or PalmCheck the Synaptics control panel - however from what I've seen, this no longer seems to work for Windows 10 versions of this driver. You may be able to get around this as follows. First, download the Synaptics driver on the link below and save it to your Downloads folder. Synaptics Driver Version 17.0.18.8 Turn off your wireless card ( should be f12 ). Open windows control panel, open Programs and Features, right click the current Synaptics driver and select Uninstall. When complete, restart the notebook. When windows has reloaded, open your Downloads folder and run the Synaptics installer - when this has completed, restart the notebook again. Open the Synaptics settings panel, disable SmartSense or PalmCheck and then check if the touchpad will now work with a keyboard key held down.  If it does, turn your wireless card back on and use the utility on the following link to prevent Windows 10 from automatically updating the Synaptics driver. https://support.microsoft.com/en-gb/kb/3073930 Regards, DP-K

Sorry for the question. I removed the USB wireless and the wired connection functions properly now. I had tried warm and cold rebooting to no avail. For all I know, airplane mode may have been on all the time and my internet access crapped out for some unknown reason. I put the blame on airplane mode which is sort of a silly reason.

My 2-year-old Lenovo YOGA 510 - 14KIB laptop has been unusable without an external keyboard and mouse for the last month after the latest windows 10 build. I've tried deleting and restoring the drivers but this didn't work. Now when I go to look for the drivers in the device manager I can't find them. I thought this would allow me to redownload them from the Lenovo support website but after trying this several times the only thing I can do with my keyboard is change the underglow of the keys and the touchpad doesn't work at all.  Any tips would be a huge help.
