Q: Yoga 710-15IKB Laptop (ideapad) 80V5 - Ghostt/phantom Touch Issue

Yoga 710-15IKB Laptop (ideapad) 80V5 - Ghost/phantom Touch IssueThis issue almost made me crazy. I have try to find out anyway to solve but all failed. my english is too poor so I copied another friend's post becaused we have the same issue and also have the same way try to solve this. thanks bro.Geochamp Dear Community, dear Lenovo People, I have the same problem. It usually occurs after waking up the Laptop from Standby. Sometimes, not always, a reboot helps. What I encounter in detail:- "Ghost Touch" Phenomenon ,Ghost touch What I've tried so far to fix it: Firmware update: Even though my screen is an LG and is clearly affected, the firmware update program told me it is "not at risk" and wouldn't need an update. So this solution: https://support.lenovo.com/de/de/products/Laptops-and-netbooks/Yoga-Series/Yoga-3-1470/Solutions/HT1... does not work, at all.Updating drivers: I've updated drivers several times with no lasting positive effect on the issue. Win 10 Updates: Seem to have no effect whatsoever, but I figured are worth trying. Lenovo Updates in Lenovo Companion: No effect. Hardware check in Lenovo Companion: Reports no hardware failures. Calibrating Touch and Stylus: No effect. Once it even got worse, but it certainly didn't fix anything... I don't know... Deactivating and reactivating touch screen in the Device Manager: Seemed to help at first, but the issue keeps reoccurring. Sometimes the screen doesn't even show up in the decive manager for some reason. From time to time it does so I can play the deactivate/reactivate game, with no lasting effect. Please forgive me the capslock, but it is FRUSTRATING! I need help...

The laptop states that the battery is fully charged, but it shuts down when the laptop is unplugged.  I think I have the settings configured properly, so I am at a loss.  Please find those settings attached.  Any assistance would be appreciated.

Last week I spilled drop of coffee+milk on my trackpad and it stopped working properly (I know you think I must have actually dropped a gallon but I asked my friend to come over and open my laptop with me and after we opened it, he couldn't see anything -- he was skeptical that I had dropped any liquid whatsoever, so, yeah, it was a drop of milk+coffee on the wrong place..). The pointer was behaving erraticatly and my friend and I, not tech savvy but rational ppl, figured that it must have short-circuited. So I went to ebay and order a replacemente part. The trackpad came with the keyboard + palmrest. The trackpad seemed to be a perfect match. The palmrest was a little bit different. My laptop has the fingerprint reader but the one I ordered didn't have. I thought it wouldn't make any difference since I only wanted the trackpad.The replacement arrived. I swapped the trackpad, made sure all cables were connected (there's actually only one but you got the point), closed my laptop, turned it on and... the trackpad was still not working.  Does anyone have any idea of what I should do next? I took a closer look on the letters and numbers I found on the trackpad and compared the original with the replacement and there's one or two numbers/letters that are different but they are otherwise identical. I can't make sense of why it didn't work and can't think of what to do next. I'd really appreciate some feedback. Thanks,

Occasionally my Yoga 710 fails to mirror to the TV.  It starts to connect but after a few seconds the connection resets to waiting to connect.  I have found a temporary fix.  I delete video drivers in device manager, and delete c:\drivers\VGA_Intel. Next I reinstall the latest video drivers with dpy304af.exe.  This will solve the problem for anything from a few days to a couple of months. I use the mirror-to-TV feature daily.  My fix only takes about 10 minutes, but it is annoying when I have to do it while I have others waiting to watch something.   Has anyone else had this problem?  Has anyone found a permanent solution?

I have a customer who has the above model Lenovo laptop. She hooked up an an external display via HDMI using a HDMI-mini HDMI adapter connected to the mini-HDMI port of the laptop which was working fine for more than a few months. She was using the Best Buy Insignia brand. All of a sudden, the external display no longer detected the laptop and the laptop didn't detect the second display. I remoted in and checked everything out and it seemed OK as far as drivers and such so, for simplicity sake (and after having her verify the external display was working wtih other devices), I had her pick up an Insignia HDMI-miniHDMI cable and just bypass the adapter. She tried that, no luck. So I remoted in again and uninstalled the Intel and Nvidia drivers and reisntalled them using the drivers from the Lenovo website. There was no change. I've done some extensive research about this issue in the forums and there have been other models with similar issues and the fixes were... using a different cable, different adapter, or both. These were mainly solutions to solve the problem of secondary displays not being detected at first, not fixing the issue of it working just fine for a while until one day... nothing. Has anyone come across an issue similar to this? I'm trying to get more of a definate solution versus swapping more adapters and cables around. One last idea I have is to hook it up to my monitor via an HDMI to DVI adapter using her HDMI to mini HDMI cable but I have a feeling, th... Read more

I am a very frustrated and angry customer at the moment as i keep running into Road Block and unacceptable answers.  This issue is enough to cause me to never buy another Lenovo laptop or any laptop at Best Buy!I bought my computer in July and in September i noticed a key had popped off-  the "< ," key next to the M key.  I have used the key board only when i was setting up-  now at my office and at customers i set it in downward dog mode ;-) and use a blue tooth key board.    So it is not from use that it broke.   I took the laptop into BEST BUY and was told that the key was missing a metal part on the back so they could not fix it onsite-  i would have to send it in and be without my laptop for a week to 10 days - unacceptable -  this was a month or more ago. I searched on the LENOVO website and could not find a way to purchase a single or the entire set of Keys!  I am self employed as a software consultant.   My life is pretty busy and i finally decided today to bite the bullet and ask for a call from Lenovo support.  Again i am told the only way to fix this is to send my laptop in for a repair.  I asked to just be able to buy a KEY - i am told that well they do not sell individual keys - they would replace the entire keyboard!  So sell me the keyboard and or send me one an i will take into best buy to have them replace it while i wait.  They cannot do that.   I live...

Hi Support, I bought my IdeaPad a month ago. After few days of using i saw a black horizontal line on the screen. I opened a ticket and sent my laptop for a warranty repair. Today i recieved my laptop, and black line issue was fixed. BUT!!!! After the 'repair' two new issues are intoduced!1) This is the craziest to my mind - my screen is assembled with an issue. It is curved in the middle of the screen, and i'm afraid if i push that a place a bit harder my screen will be damaged. Do you have a quality Control service? I cant imagine your engineers have not seen what they done. 2) After repair i can see a backlight bleed on the bottom of the screen. It was not there before, so it's an issue after the repair!  I'm totally mad! How come you could make two critical issues from one? I need your help, even if that sounds funny

Hello, my name is sebastian, I need to know if i can extend the memory ram on my "310 Touch-15IKB Laptop (ideapad) - Type 80TW - Model 80TW0004US". Now it's 8gb and I need to extend to 16gb or 32gb, the laptop has 1 bank to the ram ddr4. thank you

A:Extend ram - 310 Touch-15IKB Laptop (ideapad) - Type 80TW - Model 80TW0004US

Hi smbarrionuevo aka Sebastian,
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
As indicated in the specification of the hardware manual (page27):
Max supported RAM (OEM recommendation is 12 GB
Slots: SODIMM 1, on board 1
 
Since you have a soldered 4 GB ram, you can have another 8GB to replaced the 4GB on the slot for 12 GB.
Can't really vouch for functionality for more than 12GB although third party reseller scanner like crucial may offer something bigger like here. This was also done on by fellow member slikvic24 adding 16GB to his ideapad 310-15ISK.
Always get return options to be on the safe side.
 
If you are ok with adding just 8GB then part number and suitable 8GB OEM ram are listed here along with substitute if you need it.
 
Hope this helps answer your query.
 
Regards

Hi, I'm looking at buying this laptop, but i came across a few questions: 1) Can this laptop support up to 32gb RAM as it is mentioned in some youtube reviews? 2) Can this laptop support video through the USB-C port as well, or just data? I'm looking at connecting 2 portable USB-C monitors, 1 through the Thunderbolt port and the other through the normal USB-C port. 3) Is the Thunderbolt port 2 lanes or 4? 4) Is this 4k screen anti-glare as well? 5) How would this 4k screen work connected to 2 FHD portable monitors, in terms of resolution? 6) Is this 4k screen suffering from backlight bleeding as some reviews suggest? Thanks in advance.

A:Lenovo Ideapad 720s 15IKB Touch 4K - specs

Answers to some of your questions: 1) Yes, it supports up to 32GB RAM, however you would need two 16GB 2400MHz DDR4 SO-DIMM modules, which are rather expensive.2) I can confirm, that one USB-C port supports ThunderBolt 3 and DisplayPort 1.2a connection.4) No, it's a glossy panel.6) Most of IPS screens suffers from backlit bleeding problem. It's mostly depends on unit, which you've receive.

Hello, I've had my Yoga 900-13ISK2 Signature Edition for a little less than 2 years and up until recently it has been working flawlessly.  After the recent windows 10 1803 update, I started seeing the "phantom touches" or "ghost touches" phenomena on my screen.  It is not very frequent, but it does happen from time to time.  I am not sure if anything triggers the behavior as it normally happens randomly and not related to any particular task.   This is very annoying and disruptive especially because I use this machine for work.  I checked to make sure all my drivers were up-to-date and they all are.  I checked the forum and there were no solutions for my PC there either.  I used the recovery function to do a clean install of windows, thinking that maybe the 1803 patch caused this issue and that seemed to work fine for a while but the phenomena came back.  By the way, the signature edition doesn't come with the factory image partition (major error on Lenovo's part - that should be standard on all devices, no matter what the edition) and now the Novo/Nova (sp?) button doesn't work and the Airplane Mode hot key doesn't work.  For such a premium laptop, it is definitely lacking in areas that are easy to provide to make the customer experience positive. I still have this issue and want to know if anyone else is seeing this problem.  I also tried stopping the HID touchscreen controller and re-starting to see if that h...

Hello dear lenovo community, I came here to ask for help about a problem I started having, and that is, the touch screen is simply not working. I've tried uninstalling and then installing the driver, disabling and enabling the driver, booting to safe mode, nothing helped. The touch screen is dead. Strangely, the wacom pen that came with the notebook still works. I can use it with the touchscreen with no problems at all. Also, I've installed a few windows updates to see if that helps me, and after the update I've got this error popup on the lockscreen, I don't remember what it was saying exactly, but it mentioned the words "tablet" and "file not found or you have no permission to access it". I can't tell if it's related to the problem here or no. I'm on Windows 10 home version 1809 with installation date 25. feb. 2019. Note that the screen still worked after this update, I last used the touchscreen on 9. mar. 2019. thanks for help in advance!

Hello Guys, I bought this computer recently (2 months ago), but after the first week been using it I've noticed that the GPU starts glitching for any games. I cannot explain it by words so I uploaded this clip* that might help to understand.*League of Legends clip, but like I said before it happens for any games. I've done so many things* to get it fixed without success. In addition, when I simply change the computer settings to start using the integrated graphics (Intel GPU) there's no problems at all, then it gives me the final result that the problem is exactly with my dedicated GPU (940MX).*Driver reinstallation, updated to lastest version, downgrade to factory version, windows factory restore, etc. I'm just wondering if this could be a hardware problem.

I recently bought a Lenovo Ideapad 310 about a month ago, shortly after installing all reccomended updates on the Lenovo companion app, including reccomended BIOS and Windows 10 updates my laptop has started getting semi random freezes. When a freeze occurs the entire system locks up, the sound makes a very short interval constant loop, and I have to preform a full reboot. It seems to happen more frequently when playing certain games (CSGO, Left 4 Dead 2) Less frequently when playing less demanding games (Starbound, Minecraft) however sometimes it feels like it can happen at any time as it has happened a few times just browsing the internet or once while idle and downloading something in the background.Sometimes I can tell when it's about to happen. In the case where the computer is about to freeze while playing CSGO I lose connection to the server, the game tell's me it's attempting to reconnect, every time I see this the computer goes into the freeze 5-10 seconds later, This morning I was fast enough to alt tab before the freeze and noticed that my laptop said it was still connected to the internet just before it then froze and I had to reboot I have no idea what could possibly be causing this but wanted to know what my options are or wether anybody else was experiencing similar constant and seemingly random freezes

Hello everyone, I have been having issue with USB, it is really annoying, that's why I would like to ask if someone has similiar issue with this laptop and whether someone knows how to fix this.  Laptop boots normally to the main OS on the SSD, everything seems to be working fine. However when I attach an USB device to the laptop, it acts little crazy. When I connect 1 or 2 devices on those USB ports on the laptop, they seems to be working most of the time (not always). However when I connect them to some hub (even self powered hub or Thunderbolt 3 enclourse with power supply) it acts ok, but sometimes it is having hiccups. For example, if i connect keyboard, the keyboard is typing fine but sometimes it randomly holds the key which was last pressed, but the keyboard is still being powered and is not bliking like it is loosing power. The main issue is with Windows To Go USB drive, which works on any other computer except this one. When I boot to the windows, it is good during idle, but when I try to intall something the drive goes to 100% activity time and 0 write 0 read and freezes. I have to replug the drive, but then it ussualy gets blue screen. Also if I'm coping something to or from any USB drive, which takes longer (also in the main OS) it freezes like this too.
