Thinkpad 770 keyboard will not work

Q: Thinkpad 770 keyboard will not work

Ok here's the story... I borrowed a semi broken thinkpad from a friend... monitor is cracked and most of the keys don't work... so when I got it I used a external keyboard.. no problem... with a splitter for the mouse... no problem... It has windows 2000 pro. I personally use windows 98 so I was trying to get my scroll mouse to work so I loaded the software for that mouse... big mistake..... after that No mouse or keyboard worked.... I eventually tried another mouse that goes through the parallel port... ah that works... still no keyboard... I unistalled the mouse and keyboard many times... with no luck... my next thought was the com port so I uninstalled that.... nope still no keyboard.. even the few keys from the laptop that did work before do not..nor the laptops own mouse. So I hope I said it all... except because this is borrowed I don't have the discs.... so what else? Joel

When turning on the Thunderbolt 3 workstation dock using a P52 the USB and audio ports do not work. Means that a USB connected keyboard or mouse is not usable. I can resolve the issue by unplug&plug-in the 65W power supply cable. Why are keyboard/mouse/headphones not instantly working when switching on the dock? Is there a special setting necessary? Thx!

I was having responsiveness issues with the trackpad for a while, then, i open my laptop one day and it's completely unresponsive, as well has the backlit keyboard not working (the hotkey still pops up that it's "lighting up" the keyboard, but no actual lights) and the trackpoint being completely unresponsive too. I've tried:- Restarting computer- Using Lenovo's various "fixing" softwares- Looking for a keyboard firmware shortcut for enabling/disabling trackpad, (doesn't exist on this computer)- Re installing drivers (Ultranav driver refuses to install manually, "driver installation failed")- Booting on a non microsoft OS (Booted on a linux Mint installation and it still doesn't work)- Booting into BIOS and looking for "enable/disable trackpad option", That option does not exist for me.- Opening up computer and checking the physical connection, All plugged in fine. When i open the device manager in windows there is no entry for the mouse whatsoever. The touch screen and the pen both work fine. I think it all points towards a hardware issue, i can pick up another trackpad on ebay for pretty cheap, but obviously i'd like to make sure that it would actually solve the issues.  The major confusion for me is that why would faulty trackpad hardware stop the backlit keyboard from lighting up? How are the two linked? Any ideas appreciated, Thanks!

Hi, I have a Lenovo Flex 2 14 which came with a British keyboard but I noticed you can take off the keyboard and swap it out for another one - you can find backlit versions, or a version with a different layout. I got a keyboard for it with Japanese hiragana on it, but the laptop doesn't seem to recognise any of the extra keys this keyboard comes with which have key codes not used by other languages. These keys include: | -? \ ??????the ????, ???? and ???? toggleI would have assumed this was to do with the fact that these are keys from a 106/109 key layout as opposed to the standard 102 key, so I replaced the keyboard driver with Microsoft's 106/109 key keyboard driver, but that hasn't had any effect - it still can't see these keys being pressed. The ??/?? ?? key works because it uses the same key code as the tilde on other keyboards, but that's all. My hypothesis for why this might not be possible to fix is that the ribbon connection between the keyboard and the motherboard could only support 102-key layouts in Europe, and therefore the only way to be able to use these extra input conversion keys without a different motherboard altogether would be to use an external USB keyboard. I may have just made up what I said about the motherboard though, so does anyone know if there's a driver I can use to solve this problem and be able to use the extra keys? I can't just use a key mapper like KeyTweak ...

Hey,
 
I am pretty desperate now as I recently got a new Lenovo z500 ideapad laptop, which i think its 9 months old only.
 
All of the sudden, one day the shift key started to automatically been pressed down.. as if its like its being 'possessed' in simple terms.. and it happened at random times
 
After much forums, some say hold shift key down for 10 secs or x amount of secs, disable sticky keys, filter keys, bounce keys, or even continue press shift keys continuously etc etc..
 
Did all those, disabled sticky keys, bounch keys, filter keys and now whenever i on my comp, the shift key will automatically be pressed down, so i have to hold the shift key for like 5-8secs to disable it, than it works fine and no more occurence.
 
However, a new problem occurs.. now certain keys on the laptop is not working like the right shift key.. when the right shift key is pressed down, none of the letters are being capital or none of the symbols are showing BUT the left shift key does the job..
 
Than, the left shift key could not caps the letter z, t, y, m, and a few more.. but it works prefectly fine with other keys.. Now i am pretty sure its not a keyboard malfunction because without pressing caps, all the keys are fine but only these certain keys wont be caps when the left shift key is pressed..
 
So i decided to use an external keyboard and everything works out fine.. right shift key is working, left shift key caps those letters which could not be cap... Read more

A:laptop keyboard does not work but works fine with usb keyboard

The fact that a USB keyboard works fine when your built in one doesn't, proves that it is the keyboard itself (or connectors) that is damaged/defective, otherwise, if it were a software problem, the external keyboard would do the same.

I was just given a Thinkpad 390. It was having problems booting past the bio screen. Eventually, after trying to enter bios and no luck, I tried hooking up the keyboard from my tower. The keyboard worked in the thinkpad, but I found that the only way the laptop will boot up is if the keyboard is plugged in. Then, once in windows (2000) the laptop keyboard still wont work, whether the tower keyboard is plugged in or not. I have no idea if anything was spilled on the machine or not. Does anyone know how to get into the keyboard to make sure its plugged into the board correctly?? I unscrewed the screws, but its not as easy as that though. Any ideas? Thanks

I bought my P50 in March of 2016. I've been very happy with my purchase overall, the only disappointment has been the low key-rollover property of the built-in keyboard. I am a programmer/game developer, and it is important for me to have a keyboard that supports multiple simultaneous keystrokes. After taking ownership, I found that the keyboard drops strokes with as few as 2 keys already held down, which makes it pretty useless for gaming.  I work around this by plugging in a USB keyboard when I need to test my game projects. At the time I purchased, there was only one option for the keyboard. Today, I was browsing the Lenovo online store, and noticed that there's now an option for a backlit keyboard in addition to the standard non-backlit keyboard.  Under "Help Me Decide" it says: Lenovo has refreshed the keyset on all ThinkPad laptops, outfitting them with the ThinkPad Precision Keyboard.This new keyset allows a more comfortable, fluid and accurate typing experience with it's slate of individually rounded, spacious, and low-set keys. The ThinkPad Precision Keyboard simultaneously delivers a modern look and feel to your ThinkPad.*Select models are available with a backlit keyset as standard, or as an optional upgrade.*Most 15.6" models come standard with full keyboard including dedicated number pad. I am wondering if this refreshed keyboard means a  higher rollover.

After I recharged the laptop, I noticed that some keys began to malfunction. So I installed Windows 10 (Windows 7 previously). However the problem persisted.

I then opened up the laptop and removed the keyboard from the laptop and then replugged it back in hoping it would make a difference, but it didn't.
The touchpad also become unresponsive sometimes and I have to press the Windows key twice to make it work again.
What could be the source of the problem? Is it the keyboard or is it the motherboard to blame? Kindly provide a solution.

The "period" key was sticking on my laptop last night then a little later, it worked fine, but then my right shift key was giving me trouble.
I suspect that somehow a piece of food worked its way into the keyboard(though it is hard to imagine, no more clearance than there is). Probably from one of the kids. Whatever is down there seems to be moving around.

I attempted to disassemble, and got as far as the actual touchpad. There is a IC cable leading from the touchpad down to the motherboard that is keeping me from opening the lid up all the way. I would rather get the advice of someone who is familiar with these before I "experiment and attempt it on my own.

Can anyone tell me how to take the IC cable from the touchpad?

Thanks in advance.

You are infected. Can you boot into Safe Mode (press F8 at bootup)? Does the keyboard work here? If not have you tried an external keyboard?

Ever since I had to format and reinstall WinXP my laptop, it has developed several annoying issues. First that developed was the built in touchpad and trackpoint stopped working intermittantly. Even with updating the driver, they seldom work. I found that opening the properties page in device manager makes it work for about 10 seconds, then it cuts out. Even then, it only allows the touchpad to function for the time, leaving the trackpoint useless. That doesn't matter to me, since I can use the USB mouse when I'm in the house. It just would be nice to rely on the touchpad when I need it!

Then a couple months later, the keyboard cuts out. Not completely, mind you... It works during POST, it works when it asks you to choose OS (I dual booted for 2k and XP), and most of the time it works for me to input my password into the user select screen of WinXP. The cutting out of the KB is completely random, though I've noticed that it's more frequent to cut out when loading IE or Firefox too soon after booting up, though it is not limited to the loading of those programs. Some times, it will get past POST and OS selection, but not work to enter the password.

The IBM troubleshooting page has been useless. All they want to say is that the KB is shot, but that's only because the only options is "The keyboard does not work at all!", which is not the case. I am typing this on the laptop in question as we speak, so obviously it works.

In particular:Fn + up = Page UpFn + down = Page DownFn + backspace = DeleteSince the combinations are implemented by the keyboard controller firmware they cannot be added in software, much to the frustration of former Apple users. So, my request is: would it please be possible to pass this request to the person who maintains the keyboard controller firmware on the X1 Extreme? Adding the missing combinations would maintain total compatibility with the current setup, and would increase the appeal of the X1 Extreme for all the MacBook refugees. Thank you for your attention.

I have a Thinkpad Yoga 12 model. It is using Windows 10. What is the driver/software I should check to make sure I'm running the latest version for the equivalent of what used to be called "Transitions"?  Basically something that recognizes various keyboard configurations such as tablet mode, tent mode, etc. and appropriately disables or re-enables the keyboard? Two things happened last night as I was playing a game in tent mode:- firstly I could not get the screen to rotate 180 degrees when I switched from tablet mode to normal laptop mode by rotating the keyboard and flipping to normal orientation.  So everything was displayed upside-down.- the keyboard was unresponsive, but I could use the touch screen fine and use the Windows button under the screen to get to the Start menu.   So basically somehow something stopped responsing that should have told the system that I flipped the laptop from tent mode to normal mode and also rotated the keyboard forward.
