Yoga 3-1470 Laptop Touch Sceen/Keyboard/Trackpad Intermittent

Q: Yoga 3-1470 Laptop Touch Sceen/Keyboard/Trackpad Intermittent

i have searched through the forums and have not found a decent solution for this problem. When I power on my laptop from off, or wake it from sleep, I will randomly lose functionality to either the Touch Screen, or both the Keyboard and Trackpad, or at other times I will lose functionality to all three. Other times all three regain functionality and work perfectly fine until the next time it sleeps or powers off. I see the keyboard and trackpad in Device Manager at all times, even when they don't function, on the other hand, the touch screen with swing in and out of Device Manager, The touch screen works 100% of the time it shows in Device Manager, and fails to function 100% of the time it does not show. Any Ideas Why?

Hi All, Just got a new Yoga 370 with windows 10. I sometimes have the problem that the keyboard is not working. This happens quite allot when i am using the integrated keyboard. It is not happening when i use an external board. When it happens, i have to either wait, or to move the mouse a little bit with the trackpad (i usually only use the trackpoint) ant then in starts reacting again.  Quite annoying, as i use it to evaluate it for business, and i really like the device exept of this annoying problem.  Best regards and thanks for the help!  EDIT: The title was somehow bogus!

Hello, When I am charging my laptop, sometimes it charge and not. Its really trouble me when the battery reached less than 10%, then I plug in power, the Battery Low Notification always showed up (because the charging is intermittent). I've tried several ways which are told by this forum, like instal new BIOS (the latest on internet), or uninstal-instal battery driver on Hardware Manager, but it didnt work. I affraid if this continously happen, it will affect my battery function. Btw, I am using windows 8.1.Have any thoughts to fix that?Or maybe its a problem in the mechanic? Best regards.

Problem: It seems as though my brand new Thinkpad Yoga 12 doesn't know that it's in laptop mode and turns the keyboard and trackpad off as soon as the log in screen (Windows 8.1) comes up.   But if I lightly press the screen back, both come back to life. I let go and they switch off immediately. I also found out that if I put something under either one of the front corners of the laptop, the keyboard and trackpad work and stay on for longer ... with 90% success rate.   What's weird is that when I go directly to the BIOS, then the keyboard works perfectly, which gives me the impression that it's a sensor problem.   Touchscreen works always and perfectly.      Previously troubleshooting attempts without success: Re-install all drivers. (Keyboard, sensor, etc.)Update all drivers.2x 8.1 Windows reinstall.All (non-Microsoft) services off.Sensors and HID keyboard off / uninstall.Safe Mode      System Details: Windows 8.1, BIOS Version 1.03, i7, 8GB RAM, 256GB SSD, Wacom Digitizer etc.

Hi there! Need help. Obviously. Hope people still look at this fourm... I have a Lenovo Yoga 3 1470 Laptop. Its...a few years old AND it is out of warrenty (so please no recommendations for sending it into Lenovo Repair Service). It is running the Windows 10 update, though it initally came with Windows 8.1  A few days ago I factory reset the computer to wipe it of all files and such. When the reset was finished it updated and reloaded itself with Windows 10. Everything seemed fine at first... HOWEVER, the touch screen is not responding to anything. I can fold the laptop into tablet mode, the physical keyboard will shut off but it will not respond to touches by any means. The Pen & Touch information in windows settings says that Pen & Touch are not available for this device. I have checked the drivers and the HID-Compliant Driver is NOT THERE (it was at first but it was greyed out and gave me a code 45).  Tent mode also doesn't work. I can flip the computer over, and Auto -Rotate will appear on the screen but the screen never flips. I have searched high and low on Google and Lenovo but perhaps I am missing something, a driver update or ...anything.

Dear Community, I bought my Yoga 920 this week and comming from an 2011 MacBook Air, I'm really struggling with the trackpad clicking everytime I tap a little too hard (in the normal motion of moving the scroll across the screen.I searched everywhere in my computer and over Google, and can't find a way to turn off this feature. I've seen that Lenovo's older models with Synaptics drivers have the option to disable tapping over the mouse's hardware proprieties, but that's not the case for this model (I can't even find a driver for this trackpad). Any ideas on how to disable this trackpad tapping? Much appreciated.

Hello, i work in a school and the majority of our students use the Yoga 11e laptops. Recently we have recieved a few with keyboards and trackpads that seem to be disabled. My guess is that the laptop is stuck in some sort of "tablet" mode that triggers when the screen is flipped fully back.  Any help with this issue would be very much appreciated, thanks!

A:Yoga 11e disabling trackpad and keyboard

Hi JamesOasis.
Welcome to the forums.
 
Can you please post the full model number of the machines? Are you using Windows 10 ?
 
Let me share some ideas.....
 
Tablet mode on Windows 10 does not disable the trackpoing or the keyboard, if the computer is on Laptop layout. (not bended)
 
Let's try to see first if it is a configuration or software issues.
Check out the "Control Panel - Mouse" and see the "Thinkpad" tab. See if the trackpoint is disabled, just in case.
 

 
After that I will check the Mouse driver.
Check the support site for the Yoga 11e:
http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/products/laptops-and-netbooks/thinkpad-yoga-series-laptops/thinkpad-...
- Search for the mouse drivers, and just in case install the latest version.
 
If that does not work, I would get into a firmware and driver update rampage
Check out any BIOS update for the computer and be sure to use Windows update to be on the latest level. Check some other drivers on the Lenovo support site that may need to be updated.
 
This are only some ideas... let us know if you have any progress.
 
Regards

Hello, I have a Lenovo Yoga 3-1470 64-bit, which was originally windows 8. After updating to windows 10, the audio (Conexant HD Audio) starts to have some problems, such as the need to keep restarting my laptop to get the audio back. Recently it has gotten worse, hence I decided to uninstall the Conexant HD Audio driver from my device manager, with the hope that I can reinstall the updated windows 10 Conexant HD Audio driver. But after uninstalling, I found out that I cannot reinstall it back. The device driver installation wizard will only install for 2 - 3%, then a messagebox ERROR will appear stating that "Driver Installation Failed: Could not find the device for this driver." I have tried installing windows 8 and 10 versions of the Conexant HD Audio Drivers, but they do not work. Currently, my audio isn't working anymore. Can anyone help me, Thank you very much.

So I booted my PC after an update the other morning and the keyboard and trackpad weren't working. I tested the brightness keys on my keyboard and they still worked so it couldn't be a hardware issue there, and my mouse still worked so it was just the trackpad that had something wrong with it. The trackpad has a driver error (code 10) but the keyboard says it's working correctly. Here's what I've tried in hopes to resolve the issues so far: -Reinstalling trackpad drivers -Uninstalling both trackpad and keyboard drivers then restarting -System Restore -Chkdsk on both drives -A trick I read on these forums where you flip the device into tent mode, then after a few seconds flip it back round to laptop mode. I am utterly confused as to what's wrong here as nothing has even slightly helped my problem.

I want to remove the monitor, basically gut it, and turn the keyboard and trackpad of my laptop into a keyboard with built-in mouse for my desktop. It's an old laptop that I was thinking about throwing away anyway, so I might as well turn it into something useful.

look at attachment.

I want be able to connect that to my desktop with USB and be able to use it as both keyboard and mouse (have both the keyboard and trackpad work)

My desktop is right next to my bed, so I sometimes swing the monitor around and put the keyboard and mouse on the bed. But it's damn hard to use a mouse when you have bedsheets and blankets and other stuff that's soft as a surface.

Also, I can't have any compatibility problems, it needs to work with all 3 systems in my house that I may want to connect it to. Mac OS, Windows XP/Vista, and Linux (Ubuntu and Fedora)

Most of the time if I close the lid for several seconds and open it again, it will work. I've opened a support issue. They provided a "new*" keyboard which I installed. Made no difference. Then they recommended that I update all the drivers, etc. and run diagnostics. No problems found. Power management update actually seemed to make Touchpad very flaky. Removed. Now they are saying to take it to a repair center. When I call there, the guy says he's never heard of the problem (even though it's easy to find others with the problem online). He wants to replace the motherboard. Strongly considering just sending it back. (The keyboard wasn't working when I opened it for the very first time out of the box. Then it started working a few minutes later after I rebooted.

Hi everyone,  Today I noticed that my trackpad is not exactly flush with my chassis. There is a tiny gap where the trackpad ends and the chassis begins. The gap is bif enough for a piece of paper to slide through. This is concerning since dust can not get into the chassis. I have never noticed it before, and I have never dropped or damaged the computer. It may be a manufacturer error, and I may have never noticed it. I have had this computer for 5 months. Any ideas? Would lenovo cover this under warranty? Is it even worth going through the warranty trouble to get it fixed? The functionality of the trackpad remains unaffected. I have attached a photo so you can see what i mean. I have also attached a photo of the opposite side of the trackpad (left side) to show the difference. Thank you

Since I originally got a Yoga 370 I noticed that if I flip the screen 270-degrees to use the device as a tablet, then flip the screen back to laptop orientation, I can't use the device as a classic laptop right away because the trackpad stays disabled. The only workaround I've found for this is to press the power button off, then on. After the device comes back on, the trackpad's enabled again. But that's clunky; it takes at least 20 seconds to make that transition because I have to log in again too. I expect the trackpad to just re-enable once the screen's <180 degrees again, OR for there to be some 1-touch thing I can do on the screen (e.g. exit "tablet mode") that doesn't require logging in again. What am I missing?

Dell Inspiron 510M 1.25Gb running XP Home - have been around PCs since early 80s so generally know my way around. I think problem is more a Windows app software installation breakage.

Issue is that after recent reboot, I have no built-in keyboard or trackpad. An external USB mouse works fine but external USB keyboard does not. "Device Manager" shows yellow exclamation mark. (Computing with a mouse and the on-screen mouse-enabled keyboard is a tad slow !)

This has happened once before & despite valiant attempts, the only thing that worked was a restore to (after 2 attempts) the earliest restore point still available. I had tried reinstalling drivers and a repair install but neither worked.

Due to my probably poor habit of ignoring those app software requests to reboot after an update/install, combined with my long periods between reboots (I use hibernate), I suspect that there was a line of apps with "run once on reboot" instructions to perform. And this time, the earliest restore point is after my last good reboot so restore did not save me this time. Partly as I have been hammering the laptop heavily recently.

Device manager shows the following for "keyboard" and "trackpad" : "A driver (service) for this device has been disabled. An alternate driver may be providing this functionality. (Code 32)"

This seems to suggest that maybe some other software has installed a filter (or something) to capture these devices. I sus... Read more

Hello Lenovo Forum, I installed Xubuntu on my Thinkpad Yoga 14 and one day I tried to poke around and click the mouse button during boot time. Then I had the magical on-screen virtual keyboard popping up on the GRUB menu. You can see a photo of the on screen virtual keyboard here: http://imgur.com/p6JUrQr I also give a video showing how to activate the keyboard: Basically, clicking left mouse button (either the one on the trackpoint or an external mouse can work) will bring up the virtual keyboard. You need to touch it quickly, because every time any content on the screen changes (in this video, that is the countdown which refreshes every second) the keyboard will disappear. Touching the a key on the Virtual keyboard is equivalent to pressing the corresponding physical key. In this video I clicked Down Arrow, Up Arrow and Enter and booted Xubuntu. The Keyboard shows only in the GRUB Menu, as far as I have tested. It does not pop up in BIOS even if you click the left mouse button in BIOS. Is there a more detailed description of this Keyboard available? I searched "Thinkpad Yoga 14 virtual keyboard grub" but got no useful results, so the Keyboard looks like a secret, an easter egg or some maintenance mode to me. Personally I think this keyboard will make it very convenient for those who use the Yoga in tent mode / presentation mode / tablet mode and need to reboot across Linux and Windows and have no external USB keyboard and do not want to co...

I have an Asus G73jh with synaptics touchpad. Everything has been working finr since I got it, but recently, after not having installed any windows updates in a few months, I went ahead and ran the updates. Now the built in keyboard and mouse do not work inside windows.

The keyboard works fine in BIOS and I couldn't find any relevant options within the bios settings. However, once windows 7 boots, and I'm at the login screen, the keyboard and built in touchpad don't work at all. My wireless mouse works fine, I haven't been able to try a USB keyboard, but I imagine it would work fine if I tried it.

In the device manager, both devices ate listed and "working properly" without any errors.

I tried looking up a few of the updates that were installed and couldn't find anything that seemed relevant other than one update which apparently changes the euro sign. I uninstalled that one and it still made no difference.

I have searched online for possible solutions but everything I've found mentions reinstalling windows or rolling back to a restore point. I would prefer to avoid either one of those and rather just find the direct cause of the problem so it can be addressed.

If anybody has any ideas other than the "on screen keyboard" please let me know. I really would appreciate it.

A:[SOLVED] Laptop built in keyboard and trackpad not working.

Situations like yours is what System Restore is for. Just restore to the date and time before this happened. It will not touch your personal files.
If you don't want to do that, First boot to Bios, go to Integrated Peripherals, look for Legacy USB or Keyboard. If it is disabled, Enable it. then go to the Device Manager, and right click the Keyboard and Mouse and choose Properties/Drivers/Roll Back Driver.
You can also go to the Asus Driver page ASUSTeK Computer Inc. -Support- Drivers and Download G73Jh and download the Touchpad driver for your model.

When booting up, the keyboard works; I was able to enter the bios and reset the configuration. But once windows starts, the keyboard no longer works. In the device manager, Windows showed that it cannot initialized the drivers both the keyboard (standard PS/2) and mouse (PS/2), with error code 37.

Below is what I have tried so far:

1. Before windows starts, the keyboard works; I'm able to go into bios and change configuration.
2. Attached an external USB keyboard, it does not work but works fine on another computer. An external USB mouse works though so I was able to try some of the steps below.
3. Start up in safe mode -> keyboard and track pad does not work there either.
4. Tried to restore from previous restore point -> there are no restore point to restore to.
5. Uninstalled both standard drivers for keyboard and mouse, reboot; keyboard and track pad still does not work.
6. Uninstalled both standard drivers for keyboard and mouse, scanned for hardware changes; drivers get reinstalled; keyboard and track pad still non-responsible.
7. Read about Avast problems with non-responsive drivers, but Avast is not installed on this system.

That means the devices are working.

Seems to be some sort of system drivers corruption; but it would not be an easy fix without any keyboard/mouse working.

IMHO a Clean Rinistall will be a good fix.

Hello Community,Please help me with this issue that frustrates me. I try to? ?re-install Linux (Manjaro) on my Lenovo X1? ?Yoga? (?1? ?Gen?) ?as dual boot? (?Win10?) ?after SSD replacement.I can boot UEFI? ?from a USB flash drive.? ?Linux life USB ?boots without issues only that after boot has finished the notebook keyboard and touch pad does not work.? ?The touch screen is working.Linux and Win10 were working without issues prior to the HW change (SSD card, followed by motherboard, screen and keyboard).Win10 works and Linux at Grub level works, however after boot the keyboard and touchpad does not. What I did:Started Windows10 , rebooted need to press F12 to get to boot order, selected USB HDD, booted.Same result. Can use the keyboard in selecting of e.g. driver free or nonfree; and then start the boot process. After boot, only touch screen works, keyboard and touchpad are not working (that is the same for current and earlier Kernel Linux versions ( tested Manjaro (Arch), Mint (Debian), Puppy (Ubuntu), Solus). What could I do next to troubleshoot this issue which must be software related. Thank you for your interest in helping me. Kla

Heyy there, good people! Haven't gone here in quite a while! But tragically, I'm in a pickle, one I didn't cause for once :P
I got a new laptop a few weeks ago. A Sony VAIO VPCEB3KFX to be exact (oh my lord, just $650 for 500GB HD, 4GB RAM and an i5, couldn't resist!)
...but a few days ago.....something happened.

I was doing a curves adjustment on a fractal I made in Photoshop (yes, I'm that specific) when my ALPS touchpad freaked out on me and I suddenly found myself without the ability to left-click or tap-to-click. My (very) temporary solution was to switch the right and left-click settings, and that served me well...
UNTIL (bum bum BUMMM)
The touchpad decided to stop working entirely.

I restart my laptop, try to do as much as I can with the keyboard alone (no access to a USB mouse), and manage to download and install a new driver for it. Restart again, start typing my password...keyboard stops working 7 characters in. lkjaskjlkjlskjlfdskpwaeaprkvaslr; (that's probably what it would've looked like if my keyboard logged my inputs after it died)

Oh,and btw, got BSOD'd 10 seconds later; ACP_Index_mismatch
Then it restarted itself. Lather, rinse, repeat, until I cut off the cycle and let the laptop spend the night in solitary confinement in its bag.

The next day, ...blue screen errors...but nothing happens. I'm at the login screen...and I can type! Huzzaaaah! The keyboard works. So I manage to roll-back the driver, restart, and my trackpad and keyboard work ag... Read more

Supposedly a non related question, but where did you purchase "machine" from?

Hi,

I just purchased an Alienware 17R3 running Windows 10.
My BIOS, drivers and Alienware/Dell applications are up to date, thanks to my tech support phone call today.
When I start my laptop, if it has been sitting more than 30 minutes, I have several keys fail to respond.
The keys are 4, 5, e, t y, f, g, v, b. ( I have to double check to be sure of the exact keys.)
If I leave the laptop on for 5-10 minuets they will eventually start to work.
Once it starts working, I can use the computer as much as I want to, restart it or shut it off for less than 30 minutes, and the keys will continue to work.

I then ran the two tests.
I started the computer, after letting it sit for 30 minutes, and verified the keys mentioned did not work. I then attached a Bluetooth keyboard and all of the keys did work. I then tried the laptop keyboard again, and it still did not work.

I let the computer sit and verified the e key did not work. I then rebooted the laptop using a clonezilla usb key. All of the keys worked immediately.
I then restarted the laptop and booted into windows. All of the keys immediately worked.
* I don't know if it has any bearing on the situation, but in order to boot from the USB stick, i had to turn off UEFA and enable legacy boot support. I then had to re-enable UEFA in order to boot from windows.

I am kind of stumped. I would rather not reinstall windows.

Any thoughts?

Thanks,

Brandon

Hello all, I just purchased a Flex 5 1470 80XA for simple drawing purposes for a project my company is working on and the HID Compliant Touch Screen driver is not on the machine.  I am currently on the latest Windows 10 and BIOS builds. Now, I have scoured the forums and the internet at large and I can't find a consistent answer on why this is the case or how to fix it. I have attempted every solution that I have located with no luck. Anyone nave a solution?

I have a Pavilion Ze4145 laptop with Windows XP which has just started skipping characters intermittently. It is random in nature and does so in any program. It works fine when I plug in an external keyboard. I also noticed that the touchpad operation is jumpy also which leads me to believe that this a performance problem rather than a hardware problem with the keypad. Any suggestions would help. Thanks.

A:Solved: Hp Laptop intermittent keyboard entry

Soeak,

I have a ZT1170 and was having (and still have) what I believe is the same problem. The fact that you have no problem with a KB without a Touch Pad 'may' also show the problems are the same.

The problem as I FINALLY figured out is that as I was typing, a part of my hand (L/R) was touching the Touch Pad and repositioning the Cursor. It was particularly noticeable when using this Forum's text box. I'd be typing along and all of a sudden I was typing in the MIDDLE of another part of the paragragh!!

It still happens occassionly, but at least I know why.

Dear readers

I bought a laptop a while back, had some issues and after exchanging it a few times I came to this laptop that I am typing this article on now. The trackpad was a bit temperamental at first but then progressed to the point where, intermittently, the track pad will assumes that 1-2 fingers are already present. This means that when I try to navigate multi touch features like; overview, zoom and scroll engage. I have taken my laptop back to the shop multiple times but they can't find the fault and say that there is nothing they can do ? although they did reset my computer and wiped my hard drive, which didn't work. I will expand on this later as I have a busy day, any and all suggestion are welcome.

Thanks

Anton
