Edge 2 1580 Keyboard & Touchpad malfunctioning

Q: Edge 2 1580 Keyboard & Touchpad malfunctioning

I bought this laptop brand new two years ago and have had very minimal problems in that time. However, the keyboard has begun typing letters or numbers that do not correspond to the keys that I touch. Most keys result in the letter 6 being displayed. For example, I will type the previous sentence again but using the keyboard: 6666666666666666666666666666666666666666666. In addition to that, the touchpad is completely nonfunctioning. The cursor is not displayed anywhere on the screen and the touchpad is unresponsive. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you.

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.

I recently started up my Edge 2 after it was shut down for a week, and suddenly some of the keys aren't working, specifically the space bar, N, and B. There's been no water/other damage done to it. I updated the drivers without any luck. Lenovo's next suggestion is to send it in since it's still under warranty (purchased just in September), but I recently moved to New Zealand, and the cost to ship it to them in the US is almost $100 as it's not covered under an international warranty here. Is there anything else I can try to fix the problem? Side note rant: I'm at my wits end with this low-quality laptop. At some point on the flight to New Zealand, the side of the screen where it meets the case was knicked, and now a crack is spreading across the rest of the screen that is affecting the functionality of the touchscreen. The laptop was in a heavily padded laptop sleeve in my Victorinox backpack the entire time--how is it possible that it's this fragile? I bought this laptop because my previous Lenovo was still going strong after SEVEN YEARS, and I bought that one USED. Lenovo is known for quality and durability, but I am seriously disappointed in this laptop. End rant.

I've got a new Edge 2 1580.  Everything was good for the first week or so.  I haven't been shutting it down, I've just been letting it go to sleep/hibernate.  Last night I picked it up and noticed that the fan was running.  Upon opening it, I was unable to log in, but couldn't figure out why.  I switched to the onscreen keyboard and was able to log in.  The mouse/trackpad wasn't responding at all.  I opened Chrome and attempted to search for something and realized that no matter what key I pressed on the keyboard, all it would type was 6's.  (which would explain why my password was incorrect). I decided to reboot the laptop and see what would happen, but it doesn't appear to actually shut down.  Even when I click Shut down (well tap on the screen) - the screen goes dark, power button continues to blink slowly. This is a brand new laptop, and my first experience with Lenovo - but it's about to go back to the store.  I can't even find much information about the Edge 2 1580 at all, almost like it's a really out of date machine - but it's got the brand new chipset that was just introduced in November, and it came pre-installed with Windows 10, so it can't be that old. Makes me want to fire up my 9 year old Dell D620 running Windows XP - it still works perfectly.

Maybe someone here can point me in the right direction, about 3 month old edge 2 laptop. Yesterday the fan ramped up and is very loud running full speed. even when I turn it off for awhile, as soon as I hit the power button it goes full speed. Also the keyboard and touchpad are not responding at all but the touch screen is. A usb keyboard/mouse works just fine.

1 month old edge 2 1580, keyboard, touchpad/volume/mute/buttons suddenly stop working and the fan works full speed. The touchscreen works. The keyboard types just 1, 6, 2, x, w and q randomly. It doesn't work in BIOS either. The volume and mute buttons do not respond but it does sound if I plug some headphones to the jack port.  I have runned the hardware and device trouble shooter and adviced me to restart. Nothing really changed. Everything looks just right in the Device manadgement tree so I am guessing drivers are fine.

Hello, I bought an Edge 2 1580 last month. All of a sudden the items in the subject stopped working and the fan runs full blast.  I think it happened at the same time as a windows 10 update so I tried a roll back but that didn't fix anything. Any chance this is fixable? I see many threads about the keyboard and touchpad going out on other models.

The keyboard for my Edge 15 seems to occasionally send two button press  signals  instead of one. This is most common when pressing the space bar, e.g. in the first sentence the double spaces occcurred when I hit the space bar a single time, and the triple "c" and double "i" in thiis sentence occurred due to two button presses and one press, respectively, not due to an editing failure on my part. It's a fairly minor problem, but does waste a lot of  time (there, it just happened again) when I'm having to continually going back and edit things as I type. Has anyone else run into this? I'm not sure if my keyboard is just too sensitive to minor changes in pressure or if there might be a signalling error, and have no idea how I might fix it, as there is no sensiitivity (again) option in the  keyboard settings. Thanks!

I have gone through https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/product_security/len-15552 and I am unable to find any information on whether the Edge 2-1580 80QF has an Infineon TPM.  I have gone through Windows 10 Device Manager for Hardware IDs and all it says are "ACPI\VEN_MSFT&DEV_0001", "ACPI\MSFT0101", and "*MSFT0101", which names all point to a generic Microsoft driver. What is the manufacturer of the TPM in the Edge 2-1580 80QF?  Is it Infineon?  Has it been generating weak RSA keys?

My son saved his Christmas and Birthday money to buy a Edge 2-1580 laptop from Bestbuy. He had the computer/laptop for 15 days before the LCD chipped and cracked. He did not drop it. Some how the lower right corner bent upward. The soft aluminum base bent easily. It pushed up into the glass and shatter the glass. We took it back to BestBuy to get it repaired or replaced. The Geek Squad sent it to there repair center. The repair center called a few days later to tell us it would cost over $550 to replace the LCD unit. We found that the credit card company we used to purchase it would cover $500 in repairs. The unit cost him just over $649. I think this is a design fault by Lenovo. To soft of a base unit. I would suspect that a lot more glass will need to be replaced in the future. The problem is the availability of the glass is restricted for the average person.  If anyone has an idea of where to purchase the glass or if the internal parts will fit into a different model, please let me know. I have a feeling this will happen again after it returned.

Just purchased an Edge 2 1580 with Windows 10 at Best Buy.  Everything is working great except the XBOX App closes quickly after launch.  This issue is present immediately after reinstalling the OS from the built in recovery, and is also present on the I7 6500 with discrete graphics and the I5 skylake models on display at Best Buy.  This issue is difficult to troubleshoot because no logs of the failure can be found in the event viewer- only the following in the TWinUI log:
 
The app Microsoft.XboxApp_8wekyb3d8bbwe!Microsoft.XboxApp was activated for the Windows.Launch contract successfully.
 
 In addition to reinstalling the OS, I have tried multiple driver versions for the integrated graphics and Nvidia discrete graphics.  I have updated the bios,and tried launching the application with a variety of peripherials disabled but the behavior persists.
 
I have also tried the common permission fixes suggested for Metro Apps with this problem: setting permissions for All Application Packages on various folders and registry sections along with re-registering Metro apps using the suggested powershell commands.
 
A similar issue occurs with the Smartglass app.  The app closes quickly after launch, the ony difference being that an error is actually logged (not sure if this error is a hint about why the xbox app is not working):

I'm very frustrated with my Lenovo Edge 2-1580. The hard drive went out and had to be replaced one week out of warranty. Recently, it was holding a full charge for hours when unplugged. Then it dropped to not charging more than 25%, and then the next day it would only charge to 3%, and then dropped to 0%. Took it to Best Buy where I purchased, paid Geek Squad to check it out and they suggested a new power cord. When that did not work, they suggested new battery. That has not worked. The laptop works when it's plugged in, says it's charging and the little battery icon shows the movement like it's charging for a few seconds. But it never goes above 0% no matter how long it's plugged in. I found the suggestion on this forum to remove battery and push power button for 30 seconds. I was excited when I turned the computer back on and even though the battery icon showed no charge, it said it was fully charged when I scrolled over it. But when I unplugged, it died. Plugged back in and turned on, and showed "0% available (plugged in, charging)".  I called Lenovo tech support and they wouldn't help me because it is out of warranty. Best Buy Geek Squad is stumped, and they suggested sending it out to have someone more qualified to look at it. They suggested a new mother board - quoting me another $500 on top of the $400 already spent on new hard drive and other issues with this $1,000 computer.  I see a lot of people with this same issue posting in this forum an...

So, overall I am liking the Edge 2, other then the placement of the power button that I bump way to often. I went through the fiasco of finding a SSD that would work in it, searching before I bought would of saved me the headache, but I have another issue. And onto my issue. Once, and this is the important part, once I get the Lenovo logo on the screen, its into Windows before I know it, like it is supposed to. The problem is, that it can take up to twice as long for the Lenovo logo to appear as to what it takes for the actual boot up. I hit the power button, the screen obviously lights up, but it will sit like that for a variable amount of time before it actually starts booting. Is there anyway to shorten/remove that delay. It's sad when my old ASUS with a 5400rpm hard drive will always beat my new Lenovo in boot up because of this delay. Thanks.

What will happen is that I will will be using the laptop with or without the charger cable plugged in and the screen will randomly go black. The keyboard will stay lit up but none of the buttons pressed with change this black scrren state. I even have tried turning off the keybaord blacklights but the whole keybaord becomes unresponsive. It doesn't atter if I close and reopen the laptop or leave it there for minutes or hours I have tested it out. It will just stay in that state until the battery runs out. What I have to do in these situations is hold the power button for it to completely shut off and then turn it back on, only for it to do the same thing. I have timed it. It's very random. Sometimes it does it after a few hours of using it, sometimes after a few minutes.  A few months ago I live chatted with someone who suggested some edits, such as completely turning off sleep and the screensaver but that didn't help. They also suggested that I follow their instruction and download an install certain drivers but that didn't stop the problem either.  I do believe this started right after a windows update a few days after purchase. I've had this laptop for a year and the random black screens happen very frequently now; everyday, multiple times a day.  I'm attending graduate school and you can imagine how annoying it is to be in the middle of class or writing a paper eat home and for this to happen. I'd appreciate any help you can give me.

Hello - I'm tired of sluggish performance when booting/waking up, and think replacing the unimpressive hard drive with a SSD will help. Does anyone have any tips or advice for how to best install an SSD, including what size/type i'll need to buy and how to best install it? Thanks!

A:Edge 2 1580 Solid State Drive SSD

Get the right size SSD. Since it's using a mechanical HDD it's 2.5" SATA SSD you'll need. You should however check whether an ordinary 7mm SSD fit or you need to hunt for a 5mm (they're rare).As for SSD size... Boo. 120 GB is fine for normal office use but it depends on how many data you want to bring along, convinience etc. Go for a 240-256 GB I think they're the sweet spot right now for price/size. But  hey even 480-512 isn't that expensive these days. As for what brand/model. Boo again it depends on your requirements. But hey even the slowest will be way faster than your HDD.If you want to have the restore partition on it chose a brand which has a clone tool on their website (which of course only works to clone to their device). Put in the SSD in a USB enclosure and clone your HDD onto SSD if you want to have the restore partition as it's a bit special to clone. Or you can also pay for the full version of Acronis True Image but it's rather expensive (although fantastic tool) If you want a clean install you're more free without it cost extra for special tools. Just download a windows image creator tool from Microsoft.If machine is boprn with Win8 you need to download win8 tool even if you want 10 as you have to install 8 then upgrade to 10 - as the key stored in BIOS is for windows 8 thenEasier if machine is born with 10 then just download tool for 10.Put in SSD and boot from the USB stick to have it do a clean install of Win to your fresh SSD.

I've used this laptop for about two weeks worth of gentle use and now, after booting up, trying to do almost ANYTHING freezes the laptop, the things that don't cause it to freeze do nothing. I can't even open the START menu, just right clicking ont he desktop causes it to give me the 'processing' circle and doesn't stop, meaning I can't click on anything anymore. Even just trying to bring up the touch keyboard freezes the laptop, (the keabord also stops working once I reach the desktop). Again, this is only after about two weeks of use compared to my old laptop, (the one I'm using now), which I have admittantly abused for five-ish years and it still works fine, not perfectly but it works. EDIT: So I managed to get lucky and it didn't freeze long enough for me to get into the settings and start a reset, the screen says, "This won't take long", but I suspsect it may take a while.

A:New Lenovo Edge 2-1580 Freezes on Desktop

Hi Xros,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Forums.
 
Try the BIOS update.
When in Safe mode, remove your current video driver. Boot up to your regular desktop, which should now be in VGA mode (all video cards have a default VGA mode, when you don't have a driver installed). If the desktop is now not frozen then that helps prove it was your video driver being the problem. See if that fixes the problem.
 
Let us know how you get on.

Well I ran a hardware scan and low and behold, i'm still having the same error for the video card. Of course my warranty expired while my laptop was in the middle of being repaired.

Hi jheng,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Forums!
 
I guess it seems to be a hardware issue, but before I go ahead with the troubleshooting steps I would like to remind you regarding the warranty of your laptop, if the laptop is in warranty then you can take the laptop to the nearest service centre or you can contact the Lenovo contact centre.
 
However, before taking the laptop to the nearest service centre please perform the below given troubleshooting steps and let me know the result of the same to assist you further.
 

Try powering on the laptop only with battery and check whether it works?
Try powering on the laptop only with adapter by removing the battery and check whether it works.
If possible try swapping the battery and adapter to check whether the issue is with the battery or adapter?
If none of the steps didn?t work, toggle the caps lock key and check you can see the LED indication.
Remove the battery and AC adapter
Remove the hard drive and wlan/wwcan cards
Remove both RAM modules
Re attach the AC adapter and boot

 
Please post back whether the above steps helped  you.
Thank you, have a good day.

Okay so like the title says I recently cracked my laptop screen and since I don't have any warranty I'm going to do the repair myself. My first question would simply be what parts do I need to buy? Looking at my laptop it appears that only the glass panel that goes over the digitizer is what got messed up. The LCD panel is fine and the touchscreen still works so I believe all I have to do is replace the front bezel? Is that possible or do I need to buy a whole new LCD panel to repair my laptop?  Besides two thin cracks going through the screen, most of what shatted was the top right bezel portion.  Please help me ! 

A:Lenovo Edge 2 -1580 Cracked Screen. What do I do?

The thing you call the front glass is the digitizer. There is a matrix of VERY fine wires running through the glass.  The whole screen is bonded together so you need to replace the whole panel.

Hello all, I bought my lenovo Edge 2-1580 in December, but recently, the display won't turn on after I wake it up from sleep mode. The rest of the notebook still turns on and the power button is lit, but the screen will stay black even if I move the mouse or press any keys. I have to do a manual shutdown and then turn it on again, which works but then the problem occurs again when it goes to sleep mode. I've updated the drivers and disabled the notebook from going to sleep, but if I manually put it into sleep mode the problem continues. I've seen this as a common issue regarding Windows 10 as well. Any help would be appreciated.

I just resolved this issue recently with my Flex 3 1580, so hopefully my solution works for you.  First, update the video/graphics driver (intel or nvidia) from the Drivers & Software page on support.lenovo.com.  Test sleep mode again.  If the screen is still not turning back on, then update your BIOS.  Back on the Drivers & Software page, look for the latest BIOS update and run it.  In both cases, but especially for the BIOS update, make sure your laptop is plugged in.

Edge 2-1580.  When on battery power, screen goes blank after 10-30 minutes of use.  Very consistent, happens every time I try to use it on battery power.  Computer is still running.  Keyboard backlight still toggles.  Power button light still on.  Screen still backlit, just blank.  Will not wake up with mouse, key press, or pressing power button.  Will not turn on when I plug in power cord.  I have to hold power button to force power off, and then it starts up normally.  Does not occur when running in Safe Mode. I have tried updating any drivers that I thought had to do with display, energy management, etc.  I have uninstalled and reinstalled drivers.  I have adjusted power settings to keep screen and hard drive always on.  I have updated BIOS.  I have factory reset.  Nothing works.  Please help!

Hello! I'm not quite sure how but my up arrow key stopped working today. The rest of the arrow keys work fine, but I have not been able to use the up key. I've tried restarting my computer to no avail and it seems that the Fn key doesn't work either. I'm not sure if it's a driver issue or something with the hardware. I was simply typing when it stopped working, so I am not sure if I somehow damaged it. I had previously had my laptop repaired in November for a graphics driver issue but I do not believe that has any correlation. Thank you, any help would be greatly appreciated.

A colleague gave me his Lenovo Edge 2-1580 laptop to look at due to a charging problem he just encountered.  He said it started acting up about 3 weeks ago.  With the adapter plugged in, it quit charging (even though it registers as "plugged in, and charging").  He bought a new charging adapter, which did not fix the problem.  Then he bought a new battery, with the same results.  Then he gave it to me, and I am completely stumped. Both batteries are completely dead, with no way of charging them at all.  The laptop will run, as long as the charging adapter is plugged in.  I have tried every trick I could locate online, to no avail.  I might add, the laptop is not under warrenty, that ended on 2-20-17.  As a last resort, I did a OneKey Recovery, and took it back to factory settings, just in case some download may have affected it.  Still the same problem.  I am starting to think it is a motherboard issue, but as I said, it is out of warrenty.  Anyone have any ideas??  I have seen it change occationally from "plugged in, charging" (which is usually what it says, and isn't addressed that much online at all) to "plugged in, not charging" (which is talked about quite a bit).  But as stated before, all the tricks mentioned under those site, I have tried and nothing works. Would greatly appreciate ANY advise you could offer.  Right now it is a good paper weight that has to be plugged in all the ...

Hi Paper Tape , 
 
Please use Novo Button 3  at right side When the computer is off, press this button to start the Lenovo OneKey Recovery System or the BIOS setup utility, or to enter the boot menu.
 
Important Note : You can use the tip of an unfolded paper clip (or similar object without a sharp tip) to gently press the Novo button.  Be careful not push the button hard , you might damage the button  , be very gentle !

The touchpad on my HP 840 G1 is going crazy! I upgraded from Win 8.1. and installed all the appropriate drivers from the HP page, but the touchpad enhancements keeps failing randomly, with material (supposedly) copied to the clipboard being replaced by the failure message and the entire Mouse options panel being inaccessible because "Control Panel extension is incompatible with Driver". At times, the whole thing is barely functional and it's quite a nuisance because I use this machine for work. What do I do?

I am using Dell Inspiron 3543 with windows 10 Home. My Synaptics Driver is malfunctioning.

Symptoms and Problem
The touchpad is working fine. Sometimes, after using laptop for a while, I am unable to perform 2-finger scrolling as well as touchpad get somewhat sticky and not as smooth as it was. This problem troubles me much as using 2-finger scrolling feature is very useful.

The one main symptom is as soon as when the 2-finger scrolling stops, at the same time the Dell touchpad (synaptics driver) icon in the system tray also get freezes, means it doesn't respond to any 'touch' pressure.

Troubleshoots
I tired contacting Dell, they updated my Synaptics Driver but after sometime the problem again started. I also tired uninstalling Synaptics Driver. But none of the solution works permanently. Only one temp solution is a reboot (restart).

Also I upgraded to windows 8.1 to 10 but the problem is as same as it was.

Please help

i have a dell latitude laptop and the touchpad started behaving crazy from last week. i didnt notice when it started to happen and don't know what might be the cause.

in the synaptics tray icon when you right click there is a set of options that you can choose, and one of the options is called a pressure graph (there is also a mood pad next to it), and when i click on this pressure graph it gives me the following message: "Sorry, this program requires a Synaptics TouchPad and the Synaptics TouchPad Device Driver." and i'm pretty certain i've got the driver for it, and i've got the correct driver for it; but i can't be sure whether the installation is damaged or not. how can i check this? could there be something in the registry that prevents this from working or perhaps a conflict with another device? i tried reinstalling - it didnt work.

So it could be either hardware or software and I need to find out as soon as possible because I'm getting little annoyed by this mouse business.

Anyone with a solution?

Hello, I am using a Lenovo Edge 2-1580. I want to use a Logitech G230 headset with it; since it has two plugs (one for microphone and the other for audio output), I am using a Headset Buddy adapter with it. The adapter is plugged into the combo headset jack on the left side of my laptop. The sound coming from the headphones is fine. However, the microphone input is dreadfully quiet. I tested it by fiddling with the mic with my fingers, which should produce a loud, static-y sound, but I only get a faint rustle. In the Control Panel, I tried going to Properties on the Microphone Array to turn up the volume and Microphone Boost to the maximum setting (+10.0 dB. I've seen people get it higher in videos, but I can't seem to do that) and turning all Enhancements. Even still, I have barely any audio input from the microphone. Where is the problem? (in software, the headset, the adapter, the laptop, in the Control Panel, etc.)How do I make the microphone input louder if everything is already set to the maximum setting?Do I need any new hardware/accessories?Should the Control Panel state that the audio input device is a Microphone Array? If I'm using a headset, should it say something else?Would a different headset, say Logitech G430, work better? Thank you!

Hi there, I got my computer, an E-machine (I forget the actual model number, I'm at a computer lab at my university right now) in 2003, and I hadn't really had any problems with it until last fall when I moved to an apartment complex at my school. Since then, I've had a whole host of problems, mostly that it freezes up ALL the time, everything just freezes in place and the only way to get it to work again is to manually reboot it by turning it off and back on again. I managed to live with this problem, though, because I couldn't afford to not use it for however long it would have taken to get it serviced.

Just yesterday, it froze and I rebooted it like always, but instead of Windows XP loading up, it gave me an error saying Floppy Drive Fail (80), and it wouldn't go any further. I bypassed it by pushing F1, and it was temporarily working again. But this morning, I went to use it, and now the keyboard is acting bizarre! It's typing two of every key I press, and when I went to click on icons on the desktop, it would select more than one as if I were holding down the shift key. The actual keyboard is in good condition, none of the keys are stuck and it's clean, though. So I tried restarting the computer thinking that would help, but when I got to the Windows login screen, I found that I couldn't type in my password because the problem was still there.

I've tried restarting, unplugging and plugging everything back in, and loading W... Read more

A:keyboard malfunctioning

Sounds like a usb issue...any reinstalls of Windows recently? What SP #? You might have to go to eMachine site and see if any new motherboard drivers there can be downloaded.
Was the old mouse and keyboard Ps2 or usb? You might need to check the bios to see that it enables usb mouse and keyboard.
