Yoga x380 pen lagging while using Word

Q: Yoga x380 pen lagging while using Word

When I write something in Word, the pen starts lagging. The option 'pen' turns off and instead of writing it starts scrolling. I can't write longer than 3 seconds. I don't have this problem with other apps, only with Word.

Hi everyone, pressing [Fn]+[F7] on my X380 Yoga returns to my linux operating system the [win]+[p] keycodes whereas the [F7] key has the icon for monitor switching / presentation setup. Does anyone have the same issue or does anyone know a workaround for this? All the best

The X380 Yoga TrackPoint cap seems to be ever so slightly different from the 260 Yoga and S1 Yoga TrackPoint caps.  It's perhaps 1mm shorter.  I can't find which part number represents the factory-correct replacement cap for this computer, does anyone know?

Hi,I recently ordered a Thinkpad X380 Yoga. I was wondering whether it is possible to use an SSD with msata form factor in the WWAN card slot.Thanks in advance.

A:X380 yoga msata SSD?

Hello and welcome,
 
I can't find any reference on the web or in the X380 base spec that indicates this is possible.  My guess is NO, but can't really verify one way or the other.
 
I can say that mSATA should not be part of the conversation.  The WWAN slot is m.2 NOT mSATA.  mSATA has not been used in Lenovo products for several generations.

Hi Lenovo Community, I'm facing pretty strange CPU Performance problems on the X380 Yoga with i7-8550U CPU. The CPU performance becomes very bad after some operating time. I understand the X380 has a limited cooling capacity, but this behaviour is pretty strange. Environment: X380 Yoga, i7-8550U, 16GB Memory, 512GB SSD, Windows 10 1703 Enterprise, SCCM Driver Package used for image building and installation. Bios Version 1.14 installed (most recent one). Drivers are all checked, and are the most recent version. Speed Step Settings in Bios are on Max Performance, on OS also on Max performance. Running Standard Office applications, like Outlook, Skype, Firefox and some management tools. After system boot everything is performing fine for about 1 hour. (I wasn't able to  record the exact time so far). After this, the system starts to get really slow, and shows a bad response time. As soon as some CPU load is applied, the CPU clock in Task Manager goes down, also the CPU load is not able to reach 100%. The CPU Temperature does not go over about 60 at this point. Directly after the system start it goes up to about 85C. I monitored the CPU with HWMonitor, and put some stress to the Laptop using Prime 95. After some minutes Torture Test I see following values in HWMonitor (see attachment Prime 1.jpg) After about 1 hour run time, I see following: (see attachment Prime 2.jpg) So, the CPU Clock is far down, all temperatures are not really high, no...

So i got this laptop during orientation for the college i'm going to. I got excited when i saw the drawing programs on it so that i could sketch anywhere anytime without carrying a sketchbook to classes just in case i had time in between to draw. But the pen doesn't work. I have a Thinkpad Pen Pro, and while it seems charged and sometimes work, it's rare. In the 3D paint program, i can get a quick line out of the pen but not again. It's like the connection with the screen is wonky. How do i fix this?

My new X380 Yoga does not start at all- when hooking on the power the LED light was first orange and now white (assuming it has been charged)- when hooking on the power the red LED light (in the i in Thinkpad logo) on the screen cover lights up. The red LED light on the keyboard doesn't do anything.- Computer doesn't make any sound, no fan, nothing. Tried:- pressing it 5, 10 , 30 seconds, nothing happens.- pressing reset on the bottom (with paperclip), nothing happens. Anybody any ideas, or was it just dead on arrival?

Hello my fellow ThinkPad friends, I know that there are already a couple of threads out there concerning high battery drain when the device is completely shut down, but none for the X380 Yoga yet. In some cases (E-Series ThinkPads), a BIOS-Update was released to solve the problem. I would kindly like to ask the Lenovo team to try and figure out whether the same can be accomplished for the X380 Yoga.  When my device is shut down, it usually drains 10-15% a day, which cannot be a regular thing. Of course, I have tried all the usual stuff: - Windows Quick Start is off - USB-power when off is off- Wake-On-LAN or USB-C is off- BIOS updated to R0SET29W 1.13 If you have any other ideas, feel free to post them. Otherwise, I would really appreciate for a BIOS update that might adress the issue. It is kind of annoying charging your device for the weekend knowing that by the next day, you will already have lost 1 to 2 hours of runtime. Best wishes,Manuel

Hello, I've got a brandnew ThinkPad X380 Yoga and after 3 days of using the pen isn't recognized anymore. I tried to update the driver and first that worked out, the pen was functioning perfectly again and as I checked it's battery it was fully loaded, so it can't be an issue of the pen I guess. But after 15 minutes of using it stopped working again and I couldn't find another solution than resetting and reinstalling the pen's driver so far, which is obviously pretty annoying if you need to do it every 15 minutes. I would be very glad if somebody could help me!

I've had my X380 for only a few weeks now and I noticed it's already getting scratched from being in stand mode. I had an S1 Thinkpad Yoga for years and it never developed scratches from being in stand mode. I noticed that the rubber feet on the palmrest are not the high point but the area below the trackpad is and that's why it's getting scratched.I was thinking if I could get some more of the little rubber feet on the bottom of the palmrest I could maybe double them up to make them taller, but I can't find them anywhere. Does anyone know if these can be bought on their own? Or maybe another suggestion to prevent the scratching? I've temporarily stuck some black rubber strips on the feet to make them taller, but it doesn't look that great.Thanks

Our company recently bought 2 x380 Yoga laptops. As our companys policy states that we need to encrypt all our laptop HDD/SDD.As encryption method our company uses McAfee drive encryprion DE 7.2.x. We didnt know that x380 Yoga by default uses Lenovo NVMe Opal SSD drives, which is way put encryption policy in use.  What we did:At first we discovered that SSD are encrypted using bitlocker, so we decrypted it. After that we deployed McAfee DE and successfully encrypted SSD. We confirmed encryption and did laptop restart. After restart laptop can no longer boot from SSD. Bios stops at choose boot device screen. We can see SSD in boot screen, but choosing disk does nothing, i assume it cant access to the boot sector. It looks like Opal SSD is locked. What can we do in such situation, Is there a way to unlock it? We dont need to preserve data on SSD.

I received my X380 Yoga with the i7-8550u a couple week back and the first thing I noticed was the fan running almost constantly. I checked task manager and noticed that even though the CPU usage is remaining low, the clock speed is running at around 3.80 GHz.  My power profile is set to balanced with the minimum processor state set to 5%. If I change the maximum processor state to 99% then the clock speeds drop to below the base speed of 1.99 GHz and the fan quites down.  The problem is the CPU will never go above 1.99 GHz when set like this, so performance is noticeably reduced. I've played around in the bios and the only thing that seems to drop the idle clock speed is to turn off Intel SpeedStep which again stops the CPU from going above 1.99 GHz. From my experience with my past computers the CPU should clock down when the load is low. Is this normal behaviour for this computer and processor? I am I missing a setting, or maybe a program or process is demanding full clock speed from the processor? Any help or comments would be appreciated. Thanks

Hi at all,I got a brandnew Lenovo 910 Yoga with newest i7 core and 16GB for christmas.Now I am a bit in doubt about this laptop because it keeps freezing and lagging a lot when I browse a little in Chrome. When I open 4-5 tabs and stream BBC radio at the same time or load a page with lots of gifs like Tumblr- it hangs up. Mouse freezes, laptop does not respond to commands anymore, takes up to 30 seconds to go back to normal.I had task manager open to check the pressure on the system but there's nothing going on... CPU running between 5 and 20%, RAM being up to 45% ... so I really dont see a problem here that would cause such a strong laptop to crash....? I updated BIOS and used companion to check for and install all possible updates there are, but it didnt really help much.  My old Carbon X1 who had only 8GB RAM and an old i7 4th generation core was totally able to deal with my browsing-behaviour, despite being less powerful, so I dont understand what's going on. Anybody having an idea on where to look for the problem? I am running out of diagnose-ideas.  Thanks and happy new year,Lisa

I'm not sure how to approach this becuase there are so many methods of repairing or generally speeding up your internet connection.

If you have a cable modem unplug the power for 60-120 seconds.
Or, close any recently installed programs that might be accessing the internet.

Hello lenovo community, this is my first post so if this is not in the right area or anything feel free to remind me. I wanted to share a bug/feature i just discovered with the lenovo yoga x380. The laptop itself just started too soon to power up the fans which brought me to conclusion that the laptop is overheating very fast.. Wrong! I found out that when plugged in, the CPU Clockspeeds drop to 200-300 MHz rightaway (in Balanced Windows Power Settings). As soon as you open an application however, the clockspeeds instantly go into the 3 GHz for about 1-2 seconds, before dropping to 200 MHz again. --> This causes the temps to go up very fast for a short period of time which causes the fan to go ON for about 10-20 seconds before turning off again. However if you watch the clockspeeds at battery powered they are at 800 MHz lowest! They never drop to 200-300 Mhz (maybe for 0.1 seconds then it goes up again).  By changing the lowest possible CPU Clock from 5% to 10% and back to 5% the problem dissapeared for me and now my fan wont spin up every 30 seconds and the laptop is completely quiet. I did all this on the balanced power profile, if i go to the performance power profile in windows im at 200 MHz in Idle again... So  is this intentional? Or is this a bug?   Clockspeeds on Battery (Idle)Clockspeeds on Power (Idle)

Hi all, Got a bit of a strange one. I have one user with an X380 Yoga - since day 1 from brand new the stylus has been very intermittent (more off than on) and now it simply does not register on the users screen at all. Touch screen works as expected. I brought over another X380's stylus and it worked fine on the laptop screen. I then brought the "broken" stylus back, and it worked as expected on another X380. So to summarise, I can confirm both Styluses work, both screens work, but one stylus doesn't work on one screen, and one works on both. I'm confused!

Hello guys! Today my new Thinkpad Yoga x380 arrived. I used it for a while and noticed that the battery wont charge with the standard poweradapter.At first I thought it was because of the threshold-charging-settings (where it is supposed to not charge the battery until it drops below a certain percent-value of charge). But ive already tried charging it via usb-c, and doing so works fine. Edit: In addition, the charging-adapter isnt even recognized by the system. It simply does nothing. Except for the USB-C charging. (Charger works fine, i measured it with a voltmeter) Am i supposed to send it in, and make use of my warranty? Kind regards Martin

Hi guys,
 
I've got multiple Thinkpad X380 Yoga with the USB C docking station. External keyboard and mouse are working pretty well in the Windows environment. But when i reboot the PC and want to enter my Bitlocker Password nothing happens. Only the keyboard of the notebook is working.
The Bios option to enable Thunderbold devices in pre boot environment is set to enabled and I can also use my external keyboard in the bios to navigate.
 
Both bios and USB C Firmware are up to date, windows driver arer properly installed.
 
Whats missing or what do I have to do to make the external keyboard working with Bitlocker?

Any 920 owners tried to play MS Wordament on their new 920?  It played fine on my MS Surface Pro 4. On my 920 I'm getting garbled audio and flickering video. The flickering video only happens when I use the included pen. If I use my finger instead of the pen there is no flickering but the audio is still garbled. I have the UHD version. I uninstalled Wordament and re-installed but no change. I also have all the latest drivers from Lenovo.  All other apps I've tried have wonderful audio quality and beautiful and stable screen visuals. MS Ultimate Word Games is a free install so I would be grateful if others with UHD display and a pen can see if it's an issue with all UHD  920's or just mine. I suspect the HD screens are fine.
