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 there,

Since yesterday the touchscreen is not working when the Satellite u920T is in laptop position. When I put the Satellite u920t is in tablet position it works. All the two years before the touchscreen also worked in laptop position (keyboard slided out)
Can you solve this?

Greetings,

I've had my Yoga 900 for just a little while (got it the day that showed up in stores). I love it, save for one thing. One time, it got into this mode where touches would randomly appear on the screen (the little dot you get when you do a touch). At the same time, random keys seemed like they were being pressed. And you'd press the keys on the keyboard but they'd give you a totally different keystroke than they were supposed to. This persisted through two whole reboots. But it wouldn't happen 100% of the time. It'd be fine for a few minutes, then start doing it again. I managed to get a BIOS update in and a reboot, and the problem seemed to go away. But then in the last day or two, it has come back, albeit much much less horrifically. They'll be a stray touch on the screen with my hands nowhere near it (I'm almost always in laptop mode). Or something weird will happen like my browser will open a new tab that there's no good reason for. All of these might be phantom touches, but some could be phantom keys as well. Anyone else run into this? It seems like it's probably the hardware, though I can't rule out software.

Good day and welcome to the community.
 
Sorry you're having difficulty.
I've not seen this reported previously for the Yoga 900, but a driver update for the Yoga 3 14 (I believe) fixed a similar issue. So, if you would, please confirm which video driver version you have, and compare it to what's listed in the driver listing: http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/products/laptops-and-netbooks/yoga-series/yoga-900-13isk

When attempting to access the touchscreen keyboard, it will flash at the bottom of the screen for a second, then disappears again. Please tell me it is some kind of operator error and not a tech malfunction with my brand new Flex 4. And for the record, attempting to get a Lenovo representative to help out is something of a joke. Yo, Lenovo...might wanna up your game in that area. Now, back to my dysfunctional touchscreen keyboard... HELP!

Main issue im having is the keyboard is acting very bizzare. First keypress does not register when I start typing or after pressing the spacebar. shift keys and backspace are intermittent. for example, on this sentence i had to press the "f" key twice as well as press every letter twice after each press of the spacebar. Reinstalled drivers, system restore, malware scans all to no avail. i'd guess it's a hardware issue.now the touchscreen:does not work 99% of the time but randomly appears to. When it's not working windows tells me no touch is available for this display. Seems like a poor connection to me as well as I can't seem to find touch screen drivers. anyone have experience with this?

I have a problem with my Dell XPS 15. Anytime it wakes up from sleep mode, the keyboard and touch screen features do not work, leaving me with nothing to do but reboot the system in order to get them working again. This is extremely annoying and a fix for the issue would be greatly appreciated. I am running Windows 10 if that helps address the issue easier. Thanks in advance for your help, this is driving me absolutely crazy.

Hi all,
I have a dell XPS2720 and so here is what happened.  
I installed PS Now app in my PC and i wanted to get my wireless controller to work so I downloaded and installed SCP driver installer. I ran it but then the computer stopped responding so I decided to do a hard reset.  I held the power button to restart then once the computer and windows started, i am unable to do anything anymore since I am stuck in the home screen.  This is the screen wherein when you press any key or click the mouse, the system prompts you to log in your password to unlock the screen.  
My mouse, keyboard and touchscreen are all not responsive.  To isolate the issue, i tried my unifying receiver on another PC and it is working.  I am thinking my drivers perhaps got messed up.
Can you help me?  What can i do given that i can't even log back in to the system.

Yesterday, after restarting my PC to finish updates from Windows, and installations from Autodesk and MATLab, my keyboard, touch pad and wireless mouse stopped working.After checking the drivers, I found that the keyboard and mouse drivers had a code 32. So I did a system restore before all the updates. Did nothing for the drivers.I tried uninstalling, updating the drivers; didn't work.Then I used CCleaner to clean up registry errors. No changes.Next, I went into the registry and deleted the UpperFilter values for the keyboard and mouse drivers. Code 32 was gone for HID keyboard driver and the HID mouse driver. But now the ps/2 keyboard driver and the synaptics smbus driver now had a code 10.After removing and reconnecting my wireless mouse's usb, I noticed that fixed drivers come and go with it, so I tried to find the drivers for the mouse to try a manual reinstall for my mouse. Couldn't find them, (Logitech's website was of no help).So I got Driver Booster to help me. The program said my PC had a lot of outdated drivers, so I decided to let the program update them all in hopes it would fix both the code 10 and let my mouse work again.And that's how the touchscreen stopped responding. Driver Booster had paused while downloading the driver for the Bluetooth as Windows Defenders stopped it. When I tried to allow the download, I notice my only method of interacting with my PC had failed.I force shut down the PC in hopes that the problem would be fixed. Didn't work.So now, I can...

After replugging the power and powering up, it went into recovery.Touchscreen and keyboard worked in recovery mode, was too excited to test TouchPad and mice.Anyways, I'm resetting the PC now. Hopefully this fixes it all.I'm somewhat leary of doing updates, however. Reading around online, some had this issue for their keyboards and mice due to Windows 10 hybrid shutdown and fast startup.

I've been using my u920t for almost 10 mont and i really like that i can still use the touchscreen when the keyboard ist out.

But a couple of days ago it stopped working. I don't remeber changing anything.

Windows now tells me the screen is not a touchscreen.
Once i put the screen down and go into tablet mode everything works fine.
Tablet PC setting in the control panel also disappear once the keyboard ist out..

I tried reinstalling the driver.
I also did a windows 8 refresh (no backup unfortunately)

Any ideas?


Thank you for your help.

A:Satellite U920T - when I slide out the keyboard touchscreen no longer works

> Tablet PC setting in the control panel also disappear once the keyboard ist out..
I assume this should be OK since the tablet PC settings should be available only if the notebook is used in ?tablet mode?

The point is that this notebook can be used in three different modes.
1) tablet mode -> the keyboard and touchpad are pulled in and only touchscreen can be used
2) laptop mode -> the keyboard and touchpad are pulled out
3) photography mode -> keyboard is pulled in but touchpad is pulled out and can be used as well as the touchscreen.


I?m not quite sure if the ?orientation lock button? (on the left side) would affect the touchscreen but fact is that using this button the automatic rotation of the screen orientation can be enabled or disabled.
If you are operating the computer in laptop or in photography mode, the screen orientation will always be in Landscape mode.

Please check also if the touch display has been calibrated properly
Go to control panel (win key + x control panel) -> Tablet PC settings

Here you will find the first tab called ?Display?
Click on ?Setup? button to start the setup where you could identify the touchscreen
In bottom area called ?display options? you could calibrate the touch display.

I have a question about a friends USB keyboard. I have helped with their computer in the past and their keyboard has been a point of frustration. It is a USB keyboard. When the PC first starts, I can use this USB keyboard to get into BIOS and access the boot order options. BUT....the Windows menu will not respond. I am unable to press F8 to access the Safe menu options. I have to take over my old PS2 keyboard if I need to get into SafeMode on this PC. But once XP loads the keyboard is fine. So what would cause this "dead zone"? It's not the MoBo since the BIOS is accessible... Is there a setting in XP that will enable this keyboard ealier in the boot process?
Thanks

I also never get this message when I switch from my personal computer (Vista) to my business computer (XP).

Is this because this switch is not compatible with Vista? If so is there a list (I couldn't find one before purchasing this one) that shows the switches that are compatible with both XP and Vista? If compatibility is not the issue is there a fix for this?

It really depends on whether or not your KVM will allow USB hardware detection.

I've got two PCs connected to single monitor, keyboard and mouse via a KVM switch. My keyboard is a Logitech G110 (USB wired) Gaming Keyboard. My mouse is a Logitech Invisible Wireless mouse. My problem is that often when connected to the KVM switch all inputs and outputs work except the keyboard and the mouse. The port indicator selector light which normally is ON steady is now flashing. This is my second Airlink 101 KVM switch and I tried them also with an IOGear KVM Switch Model # GCS632U. There is nothing wrong with the mouse or the keyboard because when connected directly to either PC they work. My question is: Is there a compatibility issue with certain keyboard and mouse models when used with KVM switches, by this I mean that some keyboards (particularly gaming keyboards) and mice may require more power and the KVM USB circuit has power limitation. At present I am left switching the keyboard and the mouse USBs directly to the PC I wish to use.

My HP G62 Notebook keyboard function keys have media uses by default such as skip, stop, louder, quieter, wireless on/off. I rarely want that at all. But I do use them for terminal emulation function keys. To do that I have to hit FN all the time before using them. Can that be changed? Thanks!

Problem: My Windows 2000 Professional (version 5.0) will not respond to my Logitech Easy Internet Keyboard.

History: I "rested" my finger on my right shift key for several seconds (mindlessly). This caused a window to pop up asking if I wanted to activate the FilterKeys, a feature of the Accessibility Options. It also gave me a check box to mark if I did not want to repeatedly bring up this option each time I held down the right shift key for too long.

I clicked the check box and now my keyboard doesn't get through to the
CPU at all. Very frustrating.

My wireless mouse continues to work fine.

I went to Windows 2000 help and clicked Troubleshoot on my Keyboard options. I can't follow any of the proposed fixes because of the disconnect between my keyboard and my CPU.

1. Help recognizes that I may have trouble "logging back on to your computer after activating FilterKeys."

2. It cautions that the solution "may require editing your Windows 2000 registry." Dangerous. And I've never done it before.

3. It says I will have to edit the registry from another computer. (I have a laptop running Windows XP. Yea.)

or Edit it from a second copy of Windows 2000 on my hard disk. (As far as I know I don't have that.)

4. It suggests I can enable automatic logon after using one of these processes.

5. It also suggests I may have to reinstall Windows 2000 as a solution.

6. Either solution using my Windows 2000 requires that I use the keybo... Read more

A:Restore Normal Keyboard Accessibility Option

Can you simply go to Accessibility Options in the Control Panel (using the mouse), then reset the keyboard from there, or under the General Tab have it turn off the accessibility features after a preset time? While you're at it, uncheck the "Use Shortcut" setting in the filterkeys settings.
