U530 Touch Ideapdad ghost/phantom touches

Q: U530 Touch Ideapdad ghost/phantom touches

I am getting ghost touches all over my touchscreen, plus the mouse barely works and the keyboard doesn't work at all when the ghost touches are present. I am running on Windows 10 and have owned this laptop since May of 2014 (purchased new directly from Lenovo.com). This issue is getting worse and worse as time goes on. Even when I disable the touchscreen capability (via Device Manager/Human Interface Devices) it is not permanently disabled and it just comes back on randomly, without me enabling it again. If you could tell me a way to permanently disable the touch screen feature, at least that would resolve the main problem for now. Obviously I'd love for my touch screen to work properly though. I've been having this problem for many months now, though in the last month or two it's gotten a lot worse and a lot more frequent (at least once if not multiple times a day). I am at my wit's end. Thank you.

i recently bought a Yoga 720 13"im surpised when the screen occasionly started to show random touches along the the line of 1st third of the screen in a vertical lineapproximately 1-5 touches which is very disturbing and unpredicatble, the only why to stop it is by disabling the touch screen from the device manager after a failed attempt to update the driver.  it seems a hardware issue to me, the only issue is that im abroad after i bought this machine from US. any idea what might be the solution.And if it possible that lenovo take care of the shipping charges or at least part of it, if the issue turned to be manufacturer error ?

I've seen related posts, though my problem seems to be unique. Basically, the screen/digitizer works perfectly 90% of the time.  About 1 in 10 times I e.g. resume from sleep/hibernation, I get myriad ghost touches all across the screen, sometimes 2-3 touches per second. The behavior persists until I shutdown or put the computer to sleep. When I resume the computer from sleep, the issue is resolved. I'm running Windows 10, have reinstalled the relevant driver, and have updated the BIOS.

I just got this laptop a few months ago back in August and after about a month of using it, it started ghost touching.  I'll be in class typing and all of a sudden the screen shows multiple touches on it.  It'll open folders, start programs, etc.  I don't even need to be using the laptop either.  When I'm just listening to lecture and not even touching the laptop, it'll still show touches all over. For now I turned off the touch screen feature, but I bought this laptop specifically because of the touch screen.  Any help would be awesome!

I bought my computer 15 months ago. Since two months ago or so, sometimes (ramdomly) the cursor starts to move on their own and starts to open windows, close others, without me being able to stop it.  It enlarges the page I am working on, or open Cortana or just move to other windows. I have to be patient and wait until it stops (it takes around 2-3 minutes). Sometimes it doesnīt happen again, but other days it goes on and on. It stops for 5 minutes and then starts again. Normally, I reset the computer and that finishes the problem, but other days as today it does not. The only pattern I have been able to determine is that it normally happens with the battery is low (20% or lower). I have been looking in forums, and I found that a simmilar problem occured with the Lenovo 700 ISK and that Lenovo published a solution (please see bellow), but  I donīt know if I can use this as it is a different model.   https://support.lenovo.com/es/es/solutions/HT103512?utm_source=Email&utm_medium=Email&utm_campaign=e... If anyone could help me I would really appreciate it. Many thanks,

Hi everyone, I am experience a lot of problems with the touch screen on my Yoga 3 14. At least once a day I am getting ghost touches, i.e. it starts thinking that the screen is being pressed when it isn't. It closes windows, opens the keyboard and types, etc. I've noticed it mostly in laptop mode, but that may be because that's how I use it most of the time. For now I resort to putting it into hibernation or having to do a full reboot, and it fixes it for a while but always starts up again. It happens in different places on the screen, usually just one at a time but occasionally multiple touches. I've had the laptop for 2 months and have had the problem since week 1 or 2.  Is there any solution to this besides calling support and having them replace the screen/other parts?

hi hucktopia,
 
Welcome to the Forums.
 
Your problem might be similar to this thread.
 
If you barely use the Touchscreen to navigate around, can you try these steps to disable the feature:
1. Press the Windows key? +R, type devmgmt.msc and press Enter (this should open the Device Manager).
2. On the Device Manager, click View > Show Hidden Devices and under Human Interface Devices section, uninstall the HID-compliant device touch screen (this is the driver that controls the touchscreen). 
    - Sample image
 
3. When finished, reboot the system and observe.
 
If the above procedure works, you should be able to use the system normally but I recommend that you report the issue by contacting lenovo support.

 I?ve spent an inordinate amount of time trying to find a solution for the symptoms my Lenovo U530 Touch is exhibiting.I?ve come to the conclusion that there are two different but similar issues, both of which can be ?cured? by disabling the touchscreen. I personally don?t consider this a cure. I *like* my touchscreen. But both issues are being directed to the same solution.One is the Yoga LG panel issue, often described as ?phantom touch?, which causes the cursor to jump around without any human input, sometimes opening/closing apps/windows, etc. It can be cured by getting a FW update.The other has been reported by several different computers, like my U530 touch and an AIO desktop. The symptoms are ?ghost circles? in the upper corners of the screen, subsequently joined by one or two erratic cursors that cannot be controlled with either a mouse or the touchpad. At the same time, the ?regular? cursor is still on screen, but extremely difficult to control.I haven?t found a solution for this anywhere, although there have been lots of suggestions, most of which I?ve tried, without success.Does anyone have a solution? I really miss my touchscreen.One final thing that could possibly be part of this, although I?ve only seen one other mention of it: This all started not long after I installed a Logitech cordless mouse to both my desktop and my laptop. Uninstalling it didn?t help, though.Thanks!

Hello, I have had my Lenovo Flex 4-1470 laptop for about half a year now, have always taken careful precaution when carrying it, etc. Recently, Upon touching the touchscreen on the right side and bottom of the screen, I am experiencing these "ghost" or "phantom" touches where I touch that part of the screen and it presses on a random part of the screen. The middle and left sides of the screen do not seem to be affected, however, the top of the screen seems to refuse to calibrate to my finger correctly despite calibrating the screen many times. I have updated the touchscreen driver to find that I already have the best and newest version so that cannot be my issue. I have seen that this was a common issue on the Yoga 3-14, and that there was a firmware fix to this... So far the only "fix" I have seen to this issue is disabling the touchscreen altogether, but I bought this laptop specifically for the touchscreen capabilities. I have not physically damaged the laptop, so I am curious on why this is happening.  Is there a firmware fix or something to that extent or will I have to send the laptop to Lenovo and get it repaired? Any Help would be appreciated --Kaitlyn

Hello,
As with everyone with these laptop models, I have the issue where a part of the screen becomes unusable and starts doing ghost touches.
I've isolated the issue to TWO particular devices and I've made a script to fix this issue everytime it happens.
THE PROBLEM STARTS when the touchpad and/or screen stops receiving power (at least 5 seconds), like for example when you close the lid, or when it goes into suspend mode. When powering it back again, the problem starts.
My partial solution evidences that this is A DRIVER ISSUE. Stopping and restarting the problematic devices fixes it.
To automate this process, here's the Windows batch script that I run everytime I resume power of my laptop. It requires Microsoft's DEVCON utility to run.
devcon disable *USB*0396*devcon disable *ACPI*DLL068E*devcon enable *USB*0396*devcon enable *ACPI*DLL068E*
I can provide more specific info if a Dell engineer/s gets the proper attention to this issue.
Thanks.

I too have been having this problem. I bought my yoga 2 13" laptop about 2 months ago and the phantom touches started about a month later. At first I thought maybe the screen was picking up the fingerprints left on my screen or that there was a lag in response when i would touch the screen and nothing would happen but after reading other posts I can see this is a much bigger problem. When it starts I can'tget control of anything and have to wait for it to eventually stop and then restart my computer.  I found that this makes things subside for a while but then it starts all over again with no rhyme or reason.The most annoying part is that it closes my open tabs on the browser and sometimes opens others that are saved on my favorite bar. I'm worried that one day I'll be in the process of writing a paper for school and it deletes it before I get control of the screen.  Had I known this was such a common issue I would have never bought this laptop. Here I thought I was making my life a little easier being able to bring in my laptop to class and take up as little space as possible but looks like I will not have the option of using the touch screen if this is not easily resolved.

I have a similar problem with my Yoga 3 14 (I7). It works from a fresh boot, but if it goes to sleep, or sometimes sits for a while even w/o the screen blanking, the touch scrren doesn't respond to touches, but does have 'phantom' touches. Turning off and back on fixes. I got the laptop about a month ago. This seems to be a driver issue to me.

I'm currently running a Windows 10 Laptop and it gets really sluggish on me (even though it's an i7 processor with 16 gigs of RAM). Lately it's been giving me the BSOD and I have observed some potential culprits.

1. My USB mouse - it works fine but the cord (which is a fabric cord) has a glitch or something because I have to positi0n it or tie it for it to work. That's been giving me the BSOD the most. I currently no longer use it - just the touch pad

2. COM Surragate - When I boot up my PC, I'll open the task manager and see whats eating up my RAM, Disk memory and CPU memory. COM Surragate always creeps up to 99% then the PC gets super slow, comes to a halt, stays there for 10-15 mins (average) then the BSOD comes. I try to prolong it by watching it and as it rises I'll end the task and continue whatever I'm doing until it pops up again.

3. USB ports - partially the same as with the mouse situation above. But I tried plugging my smartphone in to transfer files and charge it and the slow down, halt and BSOD came up.

So please give me a hand, the PC isn't even a year old. It was brand new when I purchased it last October and I hope it isn't a hardware issue because I spent nearly $2,500 on this pc.

****Another issue I'm having is the phantom clicks with my touchscreen. Some days (after disabling it) the touchscreen works well, but on other days it just doesn't stop with the clicks even though my hands don't ever ... Read more

Many users have written about problems with ghost touches occuring on touchscreens the majority being in the lower left hand corner of the screen. Suggested fixes include removing "fast startup" option and reinstalling firmware. Has HP published a proper fix for these issues as they can render the machines virtually useless in some cases. Many thanks

If updating the BIOS and graphics drivers apart from the other suggestions has not helped, I would suggest taking your PC in for service as there may be a something else that may be causing ghost touch to register on the touchscreen of the PC.

Ghost Touches - I see phisical touches on the screen when I am not touching it. It looks very similar to what you see in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0ooSJdcRqyo It mostly occures when the laptop resumes from sleep or extended use. This makes the laptop unusabble and I have to hard reset to get it working properly again.  I have contacted Lenovo 3 times (Every time they have been very friendly and helpful. They also call me imedietly)Call 1 - I let them remote into the laptop. They uinstalled and re-installed some drivers and asked me to try it out. The issues were still there within a day. Call 2 - I reported the issue is still there. They remoted back in. Tried an update on the panel that did not apply. They informed me that the panel was defective and I would need to send it in. They asked me to carry it into my local Best Buy Geek Squad. They sent it to Kentucky for repairs. (I updated the bios, drivers, and reset the device) Geek Squad said that there was nothing wrong and that they updated the bios, drivers, and factory reset (Thats not ture). They sent back the device. (Lenvo has been great. Best Buy is a company I hope I never have to deal with in the future) Call 3 - I tell them that nothing has changed.

I have a month old yoga 900 and the ghost touches on the screen drive me insane.  It doesn't happen all the time but some days it'll just spaz out like crazy and ruin all my work.  I have seen in the big post there are a bunch of people complaining of the same problem with their 900's, as well as mentions in other review threads.  The 900 seems to have an LG screen as well, but the firmware update fix for the yoga3 and 700 does not run on the yoga900.  It's linked below:https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/documents/SF15-I0024 I tried to open a support case today but all they could come up with is send it in and maybe we'll replace the screen while i'm without it for ~2 weeks.  Seems unlikely that will fix the issue and I don't really want to send it in and have to give them all my passwords so they can login and test.  The firmware update worked for the other models, hopefully if they see it's an issue here as well a firmware update will get released for our models. The hardware id shown in the properties of the screen is: MONITOR\LGD04B4   which seems like it's an LG and probably similarly effected. Anyone else?

Hi everyone, I don't know if anyone else is having this issue, but sometimes my screen on my less than 3 month old hp pavilion x360 has major ghost touches. Its like someone is touching screen but im not touching it. It touches all over; exiting out of programs i have open, zooming in and out, clicking random things. I don't know what to do about it. I've tried cleaning the screen multiple times and it still happens. I barely had this computer for 3 months and i haven't done anything but light tasks on it and college work. I haven't dropped it, had it around water, or anything that would cause this to happen. Maybe it is a problem caused by an update, because it only recently started doing this within the last 3 weeks. I have already factory reset it and nothing seemed to change, it still has ghost touches. Any advice or help please?

I've owned an ENVY 27-p000na for the past year with no issues, but recently I've started to observe ghost touches. This problem has got worse to the point where the PC is not useable unless I disable the touch screen via device manager. But even this is becoming difficult as I have very intermittent control of the mouse. The ghost touches tend to be in the top right hand section of the screen, and often on one specific point. I've thoroughly cleaned the screen. A driver check says the latest version is installed, and a Windows diagnostic check does not highlight any issues. Does anyone have a solution to the ghost touches issue?

So, I too am reporting the ghost touch issue with my Lenovo laptop.  This is on the Yoga 710-15IKB model.  Same exact issue that others are reporting on the 700, 710, and 900 models.  I have uninstalled/reinstalled ALL drivers found for this model, updated drivers via Microsoft, have the BIOS update, made countless changes to the touchpad to see if it is the issue.  But, NONE of those things have worked.  The issue appears to happen randomly after waking up from sleep.  Usually within a few minutes after wake.  I can do NOTHING to stop the issue once it starts other than to hard reset the power button, then wait a few seconds and restart.  Once I've done that, the issue is resolved until... whenever it randomly wants to do it again... usually the next day. Lenovo... there has to be a solution to this!  You resolved it with a firmware upgrade on the older 700 model.  Can you work through the issue and get us a solution?  And, please, don't say to send the unit in for repair.  The issue clearly is a firmware issue.

Have a problem with what might be ghost touches on the touch screen. When playing fullscreen movies it sometimes randomly pauses and/or resumes as if someone touched the screen (or pressed space).

It is also focused on one specific area of the screen. There were no problems the first day, the problem seemed to start after I converted the machine into tablet mode and wrote notes for 10 mins using Windows Sketchbook and the included pen. I'm running Windows 10, basically just out of the box after going through a few rounds of automatic system updates.I have the most current driver of the Wintab Driver for Wacom Pen 7.3.4.33. I've seen this thread for the Yoga 3 which has reported a similar issue: https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/forums/v3_1/forumtopicpage/board-id/ll06_en/thread-id/26944/page/9 The problem goes away COMPLETELY if I disable the touchscreen and returns if I re-enable it.

Seems like the LG monitors had this problem, but I'm here to say that it's a problem for the Lenovo monitors as well. My touch screen will register multiple random touches over several seconds, opening apps, closing apps, switching windows, and making the computer unusable. The LG firmware patch doesn't apply, and this has been an intermittent problem (naturally I'm a few months out of warranty). Is there a fix? Restarting and cleaning the screen have had no effect. Oh god, just please make it stop! How do I disable touchscreen inputs (grrrrrrrrr!)?

Model name: 80v6Hardwire Ids: MONITOR\CMN1137If I would have known these touchscreen notebooks were a hassle, I would have never purchased this. It randomly logs me out of my applications and assignments. I am a online student and almost failed my quiz because it exited me out during the middle of taking it. It happens a lot during the use of Windows 10. So i use chrome..it still happens though. Yoga 13 had a firmwire update for their LG hardwire format.... where is our update......? Anybody know if they fixed this issue yet for my model? Thanks a bunch.

Hi Everyone, A few days after I received my TPY 15 with Windows 10, it began to register random ghost touches which close and open windows, pause videos and such.  It typically happens when I power up the computer (startup, coming back from sleep/hibernation), I'm wondering if anyone else is experiencing this problem and if there's a solution.

Hi Can you please post the complete model number of your TP Yoga 15? I don't have that one, but will it be something similar to this thread? Do you actually see on Windows the "animation" of the touch screen being used?...that circle animation that Windows shows when you touch the screen ? Regards

So, My ThinkPad Yoga 14 (20DM) has this issue where randomly, there will be randomly screen presses across the screen. This will usually click some link I didn't want to, so it disrupts my workflow. I don't have a precise  way to replicate it, but it feels like maybe it's related to when the laptop is hot? I  don't know. Anyway, in practice, this effect looks just like an issue that occurred for Yoga 3 14s (see here: https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Lenovo-Yoga-Series-Notebooks/Yoga-3-14-inch-Touch-Screen-Issues/m-p/214... and https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/documents/SF15-I0024 )UNFORTUNATELY, the fix for that laptop model is designed for LG screen panels. Since the ThinkPad Yoga 14 doesn't have one of these panels, the fix will not run for this laptop.Is there a similar fix for this laptop?

A:Ghost screen touches on ThinkPad S3 Yoga 14

Hi I have a Thinkpad TP 14 - 20DM008UUS  and I didn't experience that issue.Can you share your full model number and which Windows version are you using? Just my thoughts... When you said " randomly screen presses across the screen" do you think it cames from the touchscreen? Did you see some "screen animation" like the circle that Windows produce when you touch the screen, or the cursor moving when your issue happens? Maybe it can give you hints on where is the problem. Do you think it can be the Touchpad that when you move your fingers or when you have your palm over it? Or is happens  when you are typing? Since I'm a driver freak, I always try to stay up to date with the firmware and drivers for the machine.If you want to you can also try to update the drivers with Lenovo System Update first. Regartds

I have a 900-13ISK2 Laptop (ideapad) - Type 80UE Yoga laptop bought less than a year ago. It has three year onsite warranty. Since the time I bought it, the screen goes periodically berserk with ghost touches. All my open windows start getting toggled by themselves, random windows open, while some others I am working on get closed; its maddening. Complained to tech; they did some research and replaced the entire LED screen; basically one half of the laptop. Same problem. Multiple engineers have visited me and sat and did all sorts of engineering; no results. In desperation, I even went online and handed over remote access to the online tech support; same result. Now I use the Yoga after disabling touchscreen through device manager;  which kind of defeats the entire prupose of buying a Yoga. They know its a defective piece and a hardware issue; but refuse to replace. What should I do! I am at my wit's end!

I am experiencing frequent ghost touches on my new Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga (3rd gen). This means that one can see the Windows 10 visual effects of a touch on the touchscreen and the corresponding opening of windows or apps on the taskbar, without anybody actually touching the screen. This makes the laptop sometimes hard to use. I have the latest Windows 10 1809 version with updated drivers and the latest BIOS V1.24.

Laptop is a u530 touch.I'm looking to replace the 8gb module that came with the laptop with something smaller, 4gb or 2gb. Whenever I replace the ram the laptop turns on but screen doesn't change and bootloops. If I replace with factory ram then it works as usual. Only ram that works is the one module that came with it:Sharetronic - SM322NW08IAF1600 or 12800DDR3 or PC38gbI've tried:1066 or 85001333 or 10600 (I've tried lots of different kinds of these)1600 or 12800 (I'm very surprised this didn't work)Everything I've tried is ddr3 for obvious reasons.The only difference that I can think of is the capacity. I don't have another 8gb module with the same timings to try out but I would think that even lower capacity modules would work.Anyways, if anyone has any ideas let me know.
