Q: lenovo thinkpad x1 yoga 2nd gen full of problems, bsods, scroll issues. HELP!

I recently perchased LENOVO topline X1 Yoga 2nd gen OLED 20jD. I am really dissapointed with LENOVO topline laptop. It is absolutely buggy laptop. Lenovo rushed the sales and missied the main poin IT IS YOUR TOP LINE/ YOUR FACE and YOUR PRIDE.Instead, I am getting1) constant BSOD (trying use my yoga laptop as a yoga - switching from normal position to tablet)2) Brightness issues (when I turn position it can not hold the same brightness level)3) Touch screen / Scrolling issues in Google Chrome is a long story and it was not fixed at all. Forget about using Chrome guys with this topline laptop/ After a few minuts your new yoga will stop working/ scrolling Tomorrow I probably returning this buggy laptop back to lenovo and wait for another manufacturer who could launch OLED laptop without rush!

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.)

Hi everybody, I'm having some strange behaviours with the scroll touchpad gesture. Using it with the majority of the applications works fine, but with apps like spotify or even some Windows menus scrolls at a different speed and much more faster or even not working. I have also tried to uninstall and reinstall the drivers but nothing has changed. What can I do to try to fix it?

Will my Thinkpad X-1 Yoga allow me to  use a headset that incorporates a USB port?  Best Buy had no single plug, 4-pole headsets, but sold me a Logitech h390 USB headset saying that it should work.  Waiting to open package until I can verify that this laptop allow the USB connection.  Can anyone provide the answer?   [Am frustrated........my 'older' desktop has dual plugs for a headset]

A:Lenovo Yoga Thinkpad - Headset issues

Good day and welcome to the community.I can't comment on the USB headset question, but if you've got an older, dual-plug headset that you'd like to use, then you might explore getting a combo-jack splitter as described in this KB article: https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Displays-Options-and-Accessories/Microphone-Headset-Jack-splitter-neede...
 
Hope this helps a bit.Regards.

Hi I own a Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga 12 i5 180GB laptop/2-in-1. Sometimes, the CPU fan will just turn off completely, especially when the CPU is under heavy load. I am a content creator, and I use this computer for the bulk of my encoding jobs. Sometimes, when I am rendering or encoding, or even just scripting. Also, the battery is only charging to 41480 mWh instead of the designed 47060. What is happening? i have owned this for 1.5 years.

Hi - I've read various posts about problems with Headsets but not yet found a solution!  I have purchased a new headset together with splitter to use the single 3.5mm jack port for both audio and recording.  I can get the audio to work and the headset shows in my "Playback" however my laptop will ONLY use the built in mic and will not detect the headset in "Recording".  Obviously this is not good for VOIP calls and I need to get the mic on my headset working by tomorrow morning!  I've done all the basics - resinstalled sound card, checked all devices are showing and disabled devices not in use.  I've also checked the microphone privacy settings and in Realtek Audio I can't see a headset in the microphone options there!  Can anyone help at all?  Thanks so much

I posted a similar question earlier and people referred me to the Yoga (much appreciated).  However, I was interested in the 2.6 lb carbon version with touch screen capabilities.  Asus has a Spin 7 model that is very good at 2.65lb, but I miss the red mouse toggle in the middle of the keyboard and Asus's track pad was designed too large....causing unintended tapping.  The Yoga, while nice, is heavier than I was looking for.  The 14 inch screen is about 3.3lb? the 12 inch at 3? I thought that some of the earlier Thinkpad Carbons had touch screen and was hoping they would make a return soon.  Thanks,

Hey So my problem seems to be different from the other topics I have read about black screens.My problem is that everytime I scroll on a website or program, the screen turns black. I then have to click once to reactive the screen.Once I scroll again the screen goes black again and I have to click once to reactivate. The problem is consistent, and I cannot seem to find any solution to this anywhere. The problem also rises at some other occasions, and is solved as written before.I have changed my power options to "never" and similar to see if it fixed it, but unfortunately not.Please help me, thanks in advance.Best RegardsRune / Dejligrar

Recently purchased the Yoga Mouse, Part Number GX30K69565, for use with my Yoga 920.  I like the design features of lightweight, folding flat, and Bluetooth connectivity.  However, the scroll bar is very erratic, and the click buttons are hard to push.  I'm considering returning the mouse, but just on a whim, I tried the USB connection with the dongle, and the scroll bar works much better.  This is disappointing as I had hoped not to tie up my one and only USB port for a mouse. Lenovo support - What Say You?  Unfortunately I don't see a way to email support.  The options are calling or chatting M-F which don't work for me. Any users find a solution for the Bluetooth connection/scroll bar issues?

Hi I experience differences in the scrolling speed across software programs e.g. windows pathfinder as compared to Spotify or Stata in Windows 10. In fact, it goes anoyingly fast when working with .do-files in Stata or when I scroll my songs in Spotify. I have to use the arrow keys or PgUp/PgDn which requires a click on the right window to be activated. So, could you please help to solve this issue? Indeed, I find that changing the two-finger scrolling on the touchpad trough Elan Smart-Pad works in google chrome but just not very well in say Spotify, hence this new thread. BestJohan

Hi
 
Maybe you can try updating some of the driver related to the Pen.
 
There is the Wintab Driver for Windows 10. Check if you need to update it.
http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/downloads/ds041384
 
Other thing that also may help is doing some "trial and error" with other pen related software, link using Inkscape and configuring it with the pen just to try it out.

I've purchased (hopefully they'll send me the right one) a used Thinkpad Yoga 15 on eBay. I was informed that it was one that does not include the Nvidia 840m card. I'm not sure how often I'm planning on gaming with it, but I'd like the option if it was cheap. I got the laptop itself for about $210 total and saw an NVIDIA 840m chip for $10-$20 on eBay. Would it be possible to install? I'm sure I've read that it's not possible to change it if it comes with it installed because it is soldered on. If it IS possible to install (as I believe there should be an empty spot for it if it doesn't come with it), would it be possible to install a slightly more powerful chip?  Another question is could I install an mSATA 256 GB SSD into the available mSATA slot without any issue and use it as a second storage space?

Hey Guys I'm rather confused about the pen support for the new Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga 15. I've read quite a bit about it and find the information quite inconsistent. Some say it does support active pen some say it will in april and some say it doesn't. What I would like to know:A.) What kind of pen technology does the Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga 15 support atm?B.) Are there any changes in sight? / When? / What changes?C.) Can I write on it while resting my hand on the screen aka has it palm rejection?D.) How good is it for note taking? Can it keep up with my writing speed? Links to videos where I can actually see it being used / tested would be greatly appreciated.

A:Lenovo Thinkpad Yoga 15 Active Pen

From what I know there isn't too much information out so far. But here's what I found out. First off, the current Thinkpad Yoga 14 and 15 don't support pen digitizers at all, and will not in the future.Secondly, the Toshiba Encore 2 Write apparently uses the same technology. See this thread. Here's what I know:- It's called Wacom "Active ES" as in Active Electro Static.- It's battery powered. Unlike Wacom's older technology, you need a battery in the pen.- Palm rejection is more of a driver thing and not the technology. So it works, basically.- People say it feels "different", not sure if that means better or worse.- Precision is apparently very good, perhaps even better than the older tech without battery.- Pen lag (speed) doesn't seem to be an issue. Might even be better than the older technology. Other than that I personally couldn't find any information about whatever will be built into the Thinkpad Yoga 14 and 15 Only that they call it "Active Pen" and that it will be out in April. Also that the displays will support something called "anypen" which basically means you can use any pen-shaped metal object to write on the display. But that isn't really of any interest to me because I want pressure sensitivity.

My laptop doesn't turn on anymore. Here is what I have to do to turn it on (I tried many sequence of steps, but this is the only one that works every time):-Disconnect battery and CMOS battery-Press power button ten times, then press and hold for 30 seconds-Connect power adaptor and press power button At this point, my laptop turns on, but I have to reset my time and date in BIOS (of course this is normal since I disconnected the CMOS batter). Once I turn my laptop on, my batter shows that it is charging and it is at 100%. I dual boot and both Ubuntu and Windows 8.1 show the batter charging at 100%.As soon as I unplug my AC adaptor, the laptop turns off again and I have to repeat the sequence above again to turn it on. This happens consistently. However, if I shutdown my laptop the right way without unplugging the AC adaptor at any point, it turns back on normally. This happens of both my Linux and Windows OS. What I've tried:-Uninstalling battery drivers and restarting my laptop-Updating to the latest power management drives from this Lenovo websiteI also read that some HP laptops have software issues that doesn't allow the laptop to switch from AC adaptor mode to battery mode.
