T490 and T590 touchpad issues

Q: T490 and T590 touchpad issues

When installing our new T490 and T590 through SCCM - and using the lenovo sccm driver pack, the touchpad is not responsive to gestures only button clicks - The Trackpoint works fine... Installing Lenovo drivers for mouse and touchpad after the installation does not help.If I look at the driver in Device Manager, everything seems fine - There is a Synaptics Pointing Device present - but also some Microsoft HID Compatible touchpad drivers. If I remove the HID Compatible touchpad drivers - the touchpad starts working - but after a few restarts they are installed again and the touchpad is dead again.Trying to manually install the Synaptics drivers for the HID Compatible touchpad - does not help.Installing on Windows 10 1809

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

This review in regards to the next Generation T series from Lenovo.  
 
The machine I tested is based on a Intel i7-8565U 8th Generation Whiskey Lake 1.8GHz quad-core CPU.  It came with 16 GB of DDR4 memory and a bright 14? QHD(2560 x 1440) with Dolby Vision 500 nit IPS screen.  The screen I got according to HWiNFO64 is Model LEN40AE with a Monitor name of B14QAN02.0. It looks to my naked eye as the same as my X1 Yoga 3 screen with Dolby Vision.  It?s a very nice screen. This screen does not support touch.  The side bezels have shrunk(see pictures below).
 
As for graphics.  It came with a Intel UHD Graphics 620 and Nvidia GeForce MX250 with 2GB GDDR5 memory.
 
For connectivity it came with 2 USB 3.1 Gen1 ports, 1 USB Type-C, 1 HDMI 1.4, 1 Thunderbolt 3, a MicroSD Card reader and 1 Audio Jack.  An interesting feature on this laptop that I personally have not seen before is the left side USB C port can charge other USB C devices.  It can output 5V at 1.5A. I personally have not been able to try this. The Thunderbolt 3 USB C port can also output 5V at 1.5A PLUS it can charge another laptop using P to P 2.0 charging function.  I was not able to test this feature either.
 
For Networking the T490 came with a Intel AC 9560 and mine came with a Fibocom L850-GL and Bluetooth 5.0.  It also included a Full size ethernet port.
 
For Docking it supports Thunderbolt 3 Dock, Side Mechanical Dock and USB 3.0 Doc... Read more

Hi there guys, Hope this reaches the official team in charge of developing the UEFI for this two laptops. I would like to see an option in the graphic settings to allow me to disable the dedicated GPU (Nvidia MX250 in my case) and run only the laptop with the integrated Intel GPU and another option to run in normal "hybrid" mode. I have observe too, that when I select the option to give the integrated Intel GPU 512MB of video memory it does not retain the option after reboot and sometimes it doesn't even allow me to choose that option.Maybe a bug, I don't know, but I would like to have that fixed too.I'm using the latest UEFI/BIOS (1.52) by the way. Thanks for any feedback in advance. Best Regards,

Hello, I got a brand new T490, everything up to date, however the touchpad is buggy. It doesnt register short quick precise movements. when the movements are further, it doesnt have any problem but if I want to move the pointer to something close, the touchpad doesnt move at all, so I have to move quicker, which causes the pointer to jump over the thing that I want to move my pointer at. This is ridiculous. Should I wait for a driver update to fix this or is it a faulty touchpad which needs replacement?

Hello, I got a T490 with Synaptics Touchpad. Sadly the touchpad does sometimes abort my gestures or just not recognize my clicks. I sent it back to the vendor who sent me immediately a replacement device. The replacement device has exactly the same problems. It's not useable without a mouse because it drives me insane. Is someone else having the same problems? Is there a fix?I tried updating bios, updating touchpad drivers, uninstalling touchpad drivers and reinstalling windows Somehow with Ubuntu the touchpad works better but I can not determine the problem with windows and also I have to work with windows.I think I'm sending it back this weekend and search for a producer who can sell a notebook for 1600? with a working touchpad.Very dissapointing because without the not working Touchpad I would be very happy with the device.

So since I have the T490 (around 4 weeks) the touchpad randomly stops working in the middle so the cursor won't move anymore for like 20 seconds and then it goes back to normal. The edges are not affected by this, just the middle the touchpad seems temporarly dead.I found out by disabling palm rejection in the synaptics settings this problem goes completely away, but then I'd rather use the trackpoint since typing without palm rejection is extremly annoying.So what I already did is reinstalling the driver - did not fix it. Also a clean install of Windows didn't do anything.But what I noticed while reinstalling Windows was, that even in the installation process with the media creation tool, the touchpad had this not responding problem. So this is not a driver problem since even the standard windows touchpad driver had the same problem?Anything else I could try? Or is this a hardware problem?In the german version of this forum there are several others with seems like the same problem.

My needs can be satisfied with T590/P53s and they have num keypad. P1/X1 Extreme on the other hand have powerful CPU (45W, 6 cores) and powerful GPU (good for 3D rendering, GIS explorations). Gaming is not a big consideration. Rational for GPU is really from a GIS perspective (in case there is some 3D modeling). T590/P53s - adequate, does not get hot, relatively quiet. Soldered RAM -- if a problem then that is not easily rectified. Is this ever an issue? I mean, RAM going bad (I have had this once only in business laptops). If soldered RAM goes bad, can the add-on still work? Or have to replace MoBo. P1/X1 Extreme -- more future proof, Carbon bodies, two DIMM slots. Powerful GPU - great for gaming and 4K displays. No soldered RAM issue. But seems that we are still discovering issues with cooling, fan noise, and battery life is limiting (hard to get advertised battery life without much tweaking).  Price diff b/w two, on sale, is about $250. Very tempting to go with P1/Xtreme but battery life/cooling issues are becoming a drag.  Appreciate any guidance.

I have a brand new T490.  It seems great so far.... other than the fan.  The fan is definitely not quiet, and it is whirring away even though I'm not really doing anything in the background. Sure, I can see how it might turn on as I download and install acrobat pro. But it doesn't turn OFF!!  I'm using HWMonitor (I feel like there's something better, but I don't know what it is) and i can see my cpu cores: of all 8, only three are at 15% and the rest are 0.  Why is my fan running? If this can't get fixed I'm going to have to return the machine, any input welcome!

I've recently begun encountering an issue with my new T490. It's happened several times already so I'm not sure if anyone else is experiencing something similar. The specifications are:1440p Glossy Display1TB Samsung 970 Evo NVMe SSD (installed post-factory)40GB RAM (8GB factory + 32GB installed post-factory) It seems that occasionally when pressure is placed on the laptop, the screen could either freeze or start displaying multicolored artifacts. This has happened in several different ways: Sometimes, I rest my elbow on the plastic part immediately right of the trackpad (around where the Intel sticker is). A little too much pressure here will cause the screen to display artifacts.Sometimes the screen will freeze (does not respond to keyboard, trackpoint, or external mouse input)Sometimes after relieving pressure operation continues normallyI rest the laptop on one leg, then place both my hands on either side of the keyboard (lightly).Sometimes the laptop will continue operating normally.Sometimes the screen will freeze, will not respond to input and requires a force reboot to resume work. I'm not sure if this is just a manufacturing flaw (like a loose component on the motherboard that gets knocked around when there's pressure on the laptop) or a structural design flaw with the laptop. Any troubleshooting steps would be greatly appreciated.

I just got a T590 and started using it last week. I have two pairs of speakers, one (Harman Kardon) a little nicer than the other (Alans). When I first started using the laptop, I could play music using the Harman Kardon speakers just fine. A couple days in, I played music from the Alans speakers. After that, I tried to play music again from the HKs, but it won't work. It's almost like the laptop thinks the HK speakers are a microphone. When I connected them, a little microphone icon appeared on the screen. Under the sound settings in the control panel, it showed both external speakers and an external microphone, and when I tried to play music, it would show that the volume of the external microphone was very high, and the volume of the external speakers on but very low. The sound coming though the speakers was soft, garbled, and mixed with a lot of noise. I got the same results with a pair of headphones. The Alans speakers still work. In the Device Manager, my sound controller is "Realtek High Definition Audio(SST)". I have tried both disabling and re-enabling it, and uninstalling it and letting the computer reinstall, and downloading the driver from Lenovo and manually reinstalling. This did not fix the problem. It is the latest version (6.0.1.8673). I saw in this post something about using a driver called "High Definition Audio Device" (the generic one from Windows?), but I didn't see that as an option when I tried to update the driver using available driver...

I'm... not really sure how to explain this.  But suddenly my Windows 8 laptop (a Dell Inspirion 15) started doing this very strange thing... suddenly, when trying to use the touchpad, it won't let me 'jump' with the cursor.  Or rather, the cursor jumps when I ask it not to.
 
You know how when you run your finger all the way across the screen sometimes it comes to the end of the touchpad before it comes to the other side of the screen where you want to be?  You know when you do that, you'll lift your finger, put it back on the other side, and keep swiping to the other side.
 
Suddenly I can't do that.  Suddenly when I touch the touchpad, the cursor jumps back to the upper right side of the screen.  Whether I'm trying to tap-click or just move the damn cursor-- it seems to do that no matter where I touch it, and it jumps away from the left side of the screen when I touch the touchpad.
 
I've fiddled with the settings all I know how to do.  Gestures are off, Snap-To is off, and "Enhance Pointer Precision" has been unchecked.  I don't know what happened, becase I was not using it when it started happening.  My partner was, and I have no idea if he accidentally pressed something or not.
 
Please help.

Some touchpads just have this kind of behavior, and there is nothing really you can do. I use a Logitech M525 laser mouse, since using the Touchpad really is bad for a person to use all of the time. Especially if you have Arthritis. It can also cause other issues, due to you are holding your hand in a position it is not meant to be, when using the Touchpad.

Hey,
It's a problem with most touch bads, you're just touching it when you type. If you are using an other mouse you could just disable touch bad. There may be a function which disables the touch bad when writing. I think you had something like that before.
You can find your mouse settings under "Control Panel". If you have trouble to find it, let us know your OS and it will be easier to help

I ran a scan on AVG, used ccleaner to clean out registry and still no fix. My last option was to do a fresh reinstall back to windows xp. Still no fix. I have a portable mouse that i use for usb and it works fine but I hate carrying that thing around really not convenient at all. Does anyone know what the problem can be?

I'm facing a touchpad problem,
after of approximately hour of using, the touchpad stack like more than one finger touching the pad (when only one  finger touching it).
it causing the computer to make a gestures like scrolling, switching to another apps, and zooming in and out when moving only by one finger (because it thinks that more than one finger touching it).
The only way to overcome this, its by touching the touch screen, and after a while (few minute) the problem come back again.
I tried to update the drivers, reinstall the operating system (win10), and the problem still persist.

Hey, I have just bought a ENVY 2-1 laptop but I am having nothing but trouble with the touchpad, mostly due to the right/left buttons being integrated into the pad itself and not being seperate. My first main issue is that I cannot perform a left click 90% of the time. The click will either not go through, or it will but i will not be able to click and hold in order to highlight multiple folders, or it will go through but after the click has gone through the right button will click also leading to the right click menu appearing (Even though I am way out of the right click area I have assigned in the options). I get slightly more success if the pointer is not moving before i click and also if the laptop is on a laptop pad and not on my lap. Doubling tapping the pad works but I would rather have my physical buttons. I have tried altering all the synaptic pointing device with no success and by reducing the pointer area, the touchpad area itself is clean with nothing else over it, and I have tried reinstallign drivers but the current drivers will not uninstall. A usb mouse also works. Does anyone have experience with this issue?  A second smaller issue is that my mouse pointer stops dead sometimes if my thumb rests upon the area where the left mouse button would normally be. As I'm used to having my hands in this position from previous laptops this is a pain. Is there anyway round this?

Hi, I've recently bought a brand new HP 250 G4. Problem is, the touchpad is driving me crazy as it clicks when I don't want it to. It's extremely sensitive.  What's even more annoying is that when I do want to click, it doesn't work and I have to click more than once! I've tried changing the settings but its coming up with an error message telling me to uninstall something ( I cant click on it right now to bring up the exact instructions, it's not working). Is this a known fault with this notebook model? Should I take it back to the seller? I'm disappointed with the quality of the actual laptop anyway, considering that I paid over 300, you'd expect the touchpad to be fully working and responsive without the aid of a mouse  If anyone could give me any advice, I would be most grateful. Thanks

Hi. The touchpad on one of the many laptops in my household has decided to stop working.

I opened devmgmt.msc and checked pointing devices but it wasn't there.. So I scanned for hardware issues and clicked show hidden devices and boom it was there, with a little yellow icon. Device status = 'This device is not present, is not working properly, or does not have all its drivers installed. (Code 24)' So I uninstalled it, restarted and clicked update drivers, windows update found some and installed them still didn't work, I got a code 10 at some point forgot what it said that was. So I tried to get the manufacturer specific drivers but this laptop is quite old and the specific model has no archived files on the toshiba site. So now I am stuck.

You can try manually searching for the drivers.

Open the Device Manager
Right Click on the Device in question
Properties
Details Tab

In XP the VEN_ #### and DEV_ #### is located under Device Instance ID

Once you have the PCI\VEN_ ####&DEV_ #### , the search is on!

It's also entirely possible the touchpad has failed.

You will need the Synaptics Touchpsd Pointing Device Driver.

D/L from here and virtual scrolling should be enabled by default.

Drivers | Synaptics

Choose the correct Bit version for your OS and should be fine.

Post back if needed but should work fine I reckon.

After upgrading to Windows 10 I can't right click using either of the sets of mouse buttons and gestures do not work on the touchpad.

I just got a Lenovo X1 Carbon yesterday, and after a few uses of the touchpad, it suddenly makes a loud clicking noise when pressing down on the lower left side of the touchpad. I noticed that it doesnt click until all the way down, meaning that if I do it gently to the point where the normal click happens, it doesnt do the annoying click until I press more. In other words, it leads me to believe something is broken. Its really making me mad at this point to where its not just a minor inconvience. Do I just take advantage of the warranty or is there something else I can do that is much simpler and faster than going through all that.

I have had the HP Envy for nearly three years now and barely use it due to the trackpad issues. This is completely unacceptable and I will NEVER purchase from HP again. I can barely navigate my desktop using the trackpad. I'm disgusted with HP who has done nothing to fix this problem despite how long this notebook has been on the market. If anyone would be willing to walk me through troubleshooting tips, I'd be very appreciative since HP themselves has no interest in helping their consumer.

I have just upgraded my Toshiba Satelite P25-S5262 Laptop from XP to Vista Utlimate. A couple of drivers were not working correctly right away, including the touchpad, so I ran the Windows update and it fixed everything but the touchpad. It seems that the touchpad works for a couple of minutes then it just freezes.

Under device manager, no yellow flags and it says mouse and other pointing devices is the PS/2. I think something is taking the touchpad over because the keyboard works and the touchpad works right away, but then just stops working. I would hate to go back to XP for a stupid touchpad issue. Any ideas on where to begin?

I'm having issues with my HP pavilion 15 notebook. the touchpad is super sensitive. When i go to click on things, the cursor jumps from where I'm about to click to somewhere just next to where it was. I tried going into the settings to see if there was a way to dull the sensitivity or completely deactivate it from the bottom part of the touchpad, but could not find anything. I tried putting a piece of tape over the bottom 1/5th of the touchpad in order to stop the cursor from jumping around as i clicked on that part of the touchpad, but it didn't have the desired effect and the tape started getting all sticky. I really just want 2 analogue buttons on the bottom, like the older models. Is there anyway I can replicate this effect? I have no need for that much touchpad.

I have recently bought a Lenovo G70-70 but have had Touch pad issues. Often on start up the touch pad is unresponsive, so I have to turn it off by holding down the power button, which does normally rectify the problem, but it's new and shouldn't do it. I have tried the Lenovo 'One Key Recovery', twice, incase one of the window updates, of which there were quite a few, I assume because this was a brand new laptop, had corrupted something, but each time this issue has returned, all be it intermittently yet too frequent on what is a two week old laptop. I have also run on several occasions the 'Lenovo solution center' and Lenovo 'updates' software, two apps that came already installed, each time no issue was found yet each time this intermittent issue remained. As a last resort I have just downloaded and installed the touchpad drivers from the Lenovo website. If this doesn't work (it has so far?..) and before I take it back, has anybody else had this issue? It would be a shame if it is faulty as I am gradually getting to like it, I confess the AccuType Keyboard is taking a while to get used to but I dare say that will become more familiar and intuitive in time; he says hoping he that hmy new laptop is actually OK and that I will eventually get used to this very light touch AccuType keyboard...... 

A:Lenovo G70-70 Touchpad issues

Welcome to the Lenovo Community !
 
Here are a couple of things to try.......
 
First, try doing a BIOS reset.  This procedure can be useful in resolving hardware problems where there maybe a conflict.  Completely shut down Windows and do this......
 
1. Unplug the charger / adapter. 2. Remove the battery. 3. Press and hold the Power Button for 15 seconds. 4. Re-install the battery, plug in the charger / adapter if needed and power up the system to see if the problem was resolved.
 
Secondly, if the reset didn't work then try uninstalling the touchpad driver, reboot the computer and then install a fresh copy of the touchpad driver. 
 
Click here for the Windows 7 version
 
Click here for the Windows 81. version
 
If the above procedures didn't correct the problem then the problem is mostly likely the touchpad itself and returning it would be a good idea.
