I installed Windows 10 not long after it was released and everything was running absolutely fine. However, about 2 days ago the hotkey shortcut buttons (Brightness up, down volume etc) stopped working. I have tried to install drivers but I think they are the wrong ones because it says that they are not supported by the system. Please help?

Hello, I have a HP Notebook PC - 15-r213ns (ENERGY STAR) with windows 8.1 Last night, after a windows update, the hotkeys for brightness (F2 and F3) the volume (F7 and F8), wifi (F12) and all the other ones have stopped working.  I can still change the brightness and volume through windows but i cant do it anymore using the keys. The functions keys do work, like F5 refresh or F3 browse. I have noticed that before i had to press the FN key for this and now it does it without the FN + Fx, so i suppose the windows update must have changed somthing here. They used to work fine before the update. I have re-installed the display drivers (NVIDIA G-FORCE 820-M) and looked for new drivers or updated drivers using HP Support asistant but everything is up to date. I was looking for hot key drivers in the HP drivers page for my product but couldnt find any keyboard, hotkeys related software or drivers. any suggestions? thanks in advance, Marco

Hi, Marco: The System Event Utility is supposed to get the Fn keys to work. Details: This package contains the HP System Event Utility for supported notebook models running a supported operating system. HP System Event Utility enables special function keys to be programmed. File name: sp70439.exe You can find this file under the Software - Solutions section of the driver page for your model.

Hello. I have a Lenovo G580 Notebook with Windows 10 installed. The issue is that the Windows hotkeys, that is Windows key and other letter combinations, aren't working. For example, normally, if I press Windows key + I, then the Settings app should open up or if I press Windows key + R, then Run should open up. But the Start screen opens up instead in all such cases.

This is happening since I have updated the Synaptics touchpad driver via Windows Update. If I uninstall the driver, then the hotkeys start working again. But as soon as I install the driver, they stop working. This was not happening with Windows 10 before, even when the Synaptics driver was installed. It has suddenly started happening couple of months ago. Also I cannot completely uninstall the Synaptics driver because my laptop came with it itself nor can I stop the driver from updating as it is an important driver and it needs to be updated to be compatible with Windows 10.

Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

A:Windows hotkeys not working on Lenovo G580 Notebook (Windows 10).

If you PM me your email address I will send you a link to the Synaptics driver that works for me. Then you will have to use the HideUpdate hotfix to keep Windows update from changing it.

A:Re: Lenovo Z510 CPU stuck at 0.77GHz

Hi! The CPU (i3-4000M) in my Z510 sometimes stuck at 0.77GHz. It doesn't matter if I set the performance to maximum in Windows and in Lenovo Energy Manager. It usually happens when the notebook is unplugged from AC but sometimes it happens on AC too. And also it doesn't matter if the computer is cold booted, restarted or waked up from sleep\hibernation. I have read about a lot of similar cases (just google on "stuck 0.77GHz").I'm using Windows 8.1 x64, the drivers ar up-to-date and all of the updates are installed. We are talking about a wold-wide problem since it is exists in other notebooks too. (e.g.: Asus) Is there any (un)known problem with the new Haswell processors\chipsets?What is the solution?

Hello,

I noticed that many people have found solutions to their problems in these forums. I hope I get mine fixed too.

Well I bought a new laptop Lenovo Z510 with 16GB of RAM already and it seems that I am dealing with tons of problems. I got it back to warranty they changed the RAM and the situation seems to have improved significantly.

But even with that I still have faced several BSODs and a lot of problems in the event viewer plus to random crashes for some some apps like firefox.

I attached the files hoping that we get this one sorted.

I would be working on something and the laptop would just switch off. The place where I bought it from replaced the charger once, the motherboard a second time and the third time they replaced the charger again at which point the problem seemed to have stopped. This was about 7 months ago in which time I haven't faced that problem again. Recently, I was playing a game on my laptop and the power was plugged in and the battery was charging from 15% and the laptop switched off. This happens whenever I run the game and the laptop is plugged in to power supply. However, if I run the game on just battery itself, I face no shutdown issues.  Can anyone help me? 

A:Lenovo Z510 Shutdown issue

Welcome to the Lenovo Community !
 
Have you ever checked the temperatures to see if that is the cause of the shutdown ?    Use the free utility HWMonitor to see what the temperatures are when gaming with it plugged in and when gaming on battery only.  The program comes in two versions.  The first will install on your hard drive.  The second is a compressed version that can be unzipped and then copied onto a flash drive for a portable version. 
 
Here is a link to that free program......
 
http://www.cpuid.com/softwares/hwmonitor.html
 
Since the laptop has been in use for 7 months, if you never blew out the dust from the fan and heat sink you might give that a try as well.  Accumulated dust will increase temperatures and reduce the fan's performance.   Just use short bursts of compressed air in the intake and exhaust vents several times.  Avoid long blasts as they may damage the fan.  Cans of compressed air can be purchased from any computer or electronics store.

I have a Lenovo Z510 laptop which turns off randomly while plugged in. It started intially only while playing games but then happened even while watching videos and browsing. Each time the interval got shorter and in the last stage it turned off the moment I inserted the charger pin. This never happens when its on battery so it not a overheating issue. I tried changing the charging adapter but it did not go away so I figured charger is not the problem. Then as a final solution got my Motherboard replaced and it went away but only for a month. Now even with a new mother board it randomly turns off while watching a video. Im really perplexed as to what could be the reason of such shutdowns. I really need to figure it out so it can replaced under warranty.

Hi vinayk23 , 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
 
There was a BIOS update for power issue on this model . 
I would not however advise you to do it on your own since it may need constant ac connection and we do not want shutdowns to happen during the BIOS update as it may brick the pc .
 
I would rather have you call in tech support for assistance and back up your important files first for safe keep.

According to that log, it looks like your processor is dying. That is very rare however. Usually hardware failings can be caused by extremely high temperatures.

There are 3 causes of laptops shutting off:

-High temps
-Bad power cable/battery
-bad processor/ram

Use speccy to see what your temps are and post a screenshot here of it:

A:Lenovo Y50-70 USB 3.0 ports stopped working suddenly

hi haemming,
 
Welcome to the Forums.
 
Can you try the following:
1. Boot into the BIOS by continuously tapping F2 on boot-up. Once in the BIOS, hit F9 to load factory default settings then hit F10 to save and exit (this reloads the hardware configuration of the machine). Once inside Windows, uninstall the USB 3,0 driver (Device Manager > Universal Serial Bus Controllers) then scan for hardware changes.
 
When the USB device comes back, try to test your phone or any USB device (e.g., USB mouse, flashdrive, etc.) and observe.
 
2. If same problem, try to power down the machine > press the OneKey Recovery button > select System Recovery and test if the mouse will work on the USB 3.0 port
 - Sample image
 
Alternatively, you can also hold the Shift key then restart Windows and observe if the USB mouse will work on the Windows 8 Advanced Options.
 
If none of the above method works then I recommend you contact the lenovo helpdesk and report your findings as the USB 3.0 port is definitely malfunctioning and requires service.

Hello, I was very happy to receive my new Lenovo T460s 6 weeks ago and immediately installed Windows 10 which worked flawless from the first try.I set up Windows Hello using fingerprints of the whole family and it worked great. This week I realized that fingerprint sign-in stopped working, saying "Windows Hello isn't available on this device". So I started my search through the web and did:- Uninstalled the Synaptic WBDI device (several times)- Updated the driver for the Synaptic WBDI to the latest version 5.1.311.26 (several times)- Installed all Windows Updates- Searched the whole registry for "Hello" and "fingerprint"- Finally did a "reset" of windows keeping my files None of the above helped.There is no Lenovo fingerprint tool installed, PIN correctly configured and I tried all possible "solutions" proposed on the web... The Synaptic WBDI device seems to run fine, which makes me think that it's not the HW itself. So my questions:- How can I check that the Fingerprint reader is working?- How can I get Windows Hello back to regular operation? Thank you very much and best regards,Werner

Hi OMARDAKAR , 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
Using the part number for your keyboard on your search would allow you to find compatible and available keyboard in your location faster . You may use the parts lookup page to get it (just keep your serial number confidential) that would show your Machine model number and likewise FRU part number for your keyboard. 
 
You can try it match it from the FRU keyboard part number list from the hardware manual (page100-103). 
 
Update us with the Machine model number if needed . 
Hope this help answer your query.
 
Regards

Hello guys, so I am here to address the same issue regarding about the battery problem occur on Lenovo z510. For those of you who are new to this problem or this is the first time, where this issue occurs please check out the following guide--->https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Lenovo-P-Y-and-Z-series/Lenovo-Z510-Battery-Issues/m-p/2248499#M138065        For the rest of us who are facing the same issue for the 2nd time, I have decided to write this post as I saw that there is many of us who have updated our battery firmware and we are still facing the same issue, plus Lenovo staff themselve have not update us on this issue yet. From here onwards, I am going to be addressing the issue based on my experience, so I had updated my firmware on March of 2016 when this problem occurs. After the update everything was working fine as usual until recently around this week or last week the same issue occurs again and again, which is quite devastating for me as I usually use my laptop for presentation.      I hope that Lenovo support team will be able to fix this issue as soon as possible, as I do use my laptop everyday, sometimes in an environment that does not have plug. Thank You. LnvBFU v00.65?

Hi there, I am using a Lenovo Y50 laptop and it has worked great for me for close to a year. However, things took and unexpected turn for the worst today. My keyboard and mouse just stopped working, abruptly. This occurred after a Windows update earlier today. Now I get a 'Code 10' Error message on the Device Manager for the 'Standard PS/2 Keyboard' and the 'PS/2 Compatible Mouse' The code reads the following in full for both: This device cannot start. (Code 10)Insufficient system resources exist to complete the API. Please let me know what the next step to take is. P.S. I've tried updating the drivers and have restated countless times. Thank you in advance!

Hi, I have a Lenovo Ultrabook with Windows 8, and a little while back the sound just stopped working. It's not the speakers - it still makes sounds when being switched on/off etc, it's just when trying to play music/videos/games that it doesn't work. I've read somewhere that one of the endless updates this thing subjects you to had a glitch that caused similar issues for other people, but I haven't been able to fix it. Any of you amazing people got any advice? Thanks in advance!
