Q: Touchscreen stopped on ideapad flex 15

Preferred Solution: Touchscreen stopped on ideapad flex 15

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.)

I've had my Lenovo ideapad Flex 15 for just over a year now, so I guess this is the time at which things start going kerplooey. Today my touchscreen started going haywire, clicking rapidly and repeatedly in one random spot in the top left corner of my screen, so fast I couldn't use my touchpad to get the cursor away from the spot. After closing and reopening the computer, the problem stopped momentarily but then came back. I rebooted and when Windows restarted I received a pop up that "Windows Mouse and Keyboard Center has stopped working." The problem returned shortly after, and now my touchscreen has stopped working altogether. Can anyone help me?

A:Ideapad Flex 15 touchscreen woes

Update: The problem is now intermittently returning. If I close my laptop and reopen it, it seems to disable the touchscreen for a period of time so that I'm able to actually use my computer for a bit before it starts feverishly attacking that one area of the screen. All instructions I've found online to disable the touchscreen haven't worked... I'd love to have it functioning again though. Help?

Hi everyone, The touchscreen of my idepad flex 14 stopped to work suddenly. I have upgraded to Windows 10 recently and  didn't have any problem but now the defect came up. I have checked the device manager and the HID compliant touch screen driver is there (Version from 2006) and seems to be ok. I have tried to upgrade the driver but Windows says that is the latest version. Is there a driver from Lenovo for the touchscreen device? I really would appreciate any help. Thanks,Mike

Installed Windows 10 on it, and it didn't fix it, reset to Windows 8, no fix, upgraded to 8.1 and still no fix, all updates and drivers installed, tried the device manager thing, yet still no touchscreen response. It doesn't even show up in device manager. Also, now the display, doesn't cover the whole screen, there are black bars all around the edges.

I  have an Ideapad Flex 15.
 
Since I upgraded yesterday to Windows 10, I have lost the touchscreen ability I had up to that point on Windows 8.1. On search for pen and touch, I was given this message on a system information page: "No pen or touch input is available for this display." I have looked in device manager under Human Interface Devices. Expanding the view to show hidden devices, I see "HID compliant touch screen." When I click to get device status, this is the message:
 
"Currently, this hardware device is not connected to the computer. (Code 45) To fix this problem, reconnect this hardware device to the computer."
 
How do I do that? I note a similar problem in Windows 8.1 on this posting:
 
http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows8_1-hardware/touchscreen-not-working/c48cda2...
 
Does anyone have any idea how to reconnect the hardware device -- or at least to solve this problem? Thanks!

Nothing different happened between turning off the computer & turning it on to keep working & yet all of a sudden the touchscreen doesn't work?? It's almost as if it was turned off? Is that a setting that can be turned off or does this need to be fixed or something?  So annoying!!

A:Lenovo Flex 5 - Wacom Device code 10 and missing touchscreen drivers

Found out that in order for the Windows 10 installation to detect the PCIe SSD, you have to go into the BIOS and change the SATA Controller Mode to AHCI.  Now that only leaves the Wacom drivers having a code 10 and the missing touch screen drivers.

Hi SmileSmoke,
 
Have you contacted Lenovo Support and spoken to them about your situation? Did you contact them when the unit was returned to you to log the fault?
 
If you did for the second question then they should be able to help you and repair under warranty as it would be a failed repair.

I've had my Flex 4 for about three months now. It worked fine last night but when I went to turn it on today the keyboard lit up and turned off repeatedly but the screen stays dark. The power light goes on and off with the keyboard but the light that says it's charging stays on. I can occasionally hear the fans kick on when the keyboard lights up but it turns off when it goes dark and they don't go on every time. It's not overly hot and I know it's charged. I've held down the power button and I tried using the Novo button and it didn't do anything. I've tried taking out the AC adapter out and holding the power button and then plugging it back in again with no success. Anyone have any advice?

Hello there, Not really sure whether this is a topic that i can post here on this particular section. If it is against the rule, please let me know i will removed it.  Earlier this year( around January) I purchased a ideapadd Flex 4 from the Microsoft store around my house. Everything is fine, until one day my screen started to go black and sometimes the screen color become very very red. I took the laptop to the store before i went back. The store told me that it is because the laptop's screen itself is kind damaged which require me to send my laptop back to Lenovo to fix the screen. When i bought my computer, I also have the one year warranty with this computer. My question right now is is it possible for me to say instead of asking Lenovo to fix the screen, can I say exchange this laptop for a new series? what I mean is I saw the Lenovo Legion online and was thinking is it possible to say i send in my old one and get Lenovo Legion and any price difference between the two laptop i will just pay? it is just that if i do send in my ideapad to Lenovo it will take 2 weeks for them to fix and i really really tried to avoid that because my class is about to start and without my only laptop for more than a week is a bit of stretch for me. I see that for me to order the Lenovo laptop online will approximately take them 3-4 days to ship If this topic is not ok to post here please do let me know and if this issue is better for me to talk to a representat...
