T420 function key not working , and home , end .. key not working

Q: T420 function key not working , and home , end .. key not working

None of the function keys are working. I do not see any problems when I do a hardware test, but the keys do not work.There is no problem with the "F1-F2..F12" keys, they are all active.Also, home, end, pgup, pgdn, keys do not work either.I'm using win 10. I could not solve the problem anyway, I reinstalled hotkeys, tried everything I could find on the internet, but it did not happen.I guess it's a problem with win 10.Can you help me with this problem?

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.)

hey,
The search function doesn't work anymore on my daughter's laptop.
When she enters a name of a file the magnifying glass leaves for an 'x' and nothing happens.
Using advanced searched,messing with indexing don't work.
The "search" in windows explorer (explorer bar) is just a blank area.
We can't use scannow,laptop came up without windows disk.

Any workaround?
Thx in advance

(Sorry for the french,it's just vista home,we would have to upgrade (ultimate or professionnal) to change the language... lol)

If I click on Start and type a file name in the search box above the Windows icon I immediately get a response with possible files shown. If I go Start and click on Search on the right hand side the window opens but if I type in a file name in the search box nothing happens. There is no response at all. Has anybody got any ideas? I would be extremely grateful.

Hi, I worked with quite a few external monitors connected to my T420 with no issues, but now I am trying to connect a 16:10 monitor (1920x1200) and it doesn't display properly. I am using a VGA (D-SUB) connection unfortunately. Win7, and the video card is the integrated from Intel. Anyone else can confirm they got a 1200 vertical resolution monitor to work on a T420 using VGA connection? Thanks.

Both my mousepad and trackpoint have suddently stopped working. Keyboard works fine though. I have tried booting from a Debian live CD and the problem persists. I have checked that they are both enabled in BIOS. I have checked the keyboard connection and mousepad connection and both seem fine. I am not sure what the problem could be since if it was a hardware problem then surely the keyboard would also be having problems given that they share the same connection? Any ideas? I have been having problems for some weeks now but the mouse would usually start working again after reinstalling psmouse with modprobe, but that won't work anymore.

Ok, after trying many things to solve this issue, I turn to the community to try to help.I have a T420, i5-2520M, Windows 7 Pro, SP1, 64-bit. Everything was working fine until I switched off the wireless function using the manual switch on the right hand side of the laptop next to the DVD drive.When I switched it back on, the wireless network did not reactivate by itself. After waiting a little time, I hit Fn+F5 to see if it needed switching on via that control. The window came up with a message saying I needed to flick the manual switch back which I already done. I switched it off and back on anyway still with the F5 hotkey window open and nothing happened.I decided to try re-starting the laptop which brought the wireless network back on - except now the hotkeys, microphone mute, brightness controls etc won't work. The only hotkey that works is Fn+PgUp for the keyboard LED.I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the Hotkey Features Integration software twice, once with the Lenovo Power Manager driver installed and once uninstalled. I've also reinstalled the Lenovo Power Manager but it makes no difference.The On Screen display works for Caps Lock, Volume and Mute.Would it have anything to do with the Windows Management Instrumentation (as it's listed as one of the dependencies)? I don't believe this has anything to do with my problem but I recently swapped the motherboard as my GPU was failing.

Hi all,I have a T420 and minidock series 3 (4337), and recently upgraded to a BenQ BL3200 monitor.  The only way to get 2560x1440 to the monitor at 60Hz on this machine is DisplayPort. Plugging directly into the DisplayPort on the laptop works fine, but plugging into the DisplayPort on the dock causes the monitor to turn off (no signal).  If I have my laptop screen up, even it goes black when plugging into the dock's DisplayPort. I borrowed my sister's identical dock to rule out a hardware issue with the dock itself, and same behavior there.  I'm wondering if this is a driver issue?  I tried a few of the newer versions of the Intel HD3000 drivers and no luck.   I'm running WIndows 10, fresh install.   I do not have the Nvidia discreet chipset, just hte HD3000 onboard graphics.Thanks! Dave

On My T420 I have just upgraded from Windows 1611 (Anniversary Upgrade) to 1703 (Creators Upgrade). As a result Device Manager reports a conflict in a basic system install stating no driver is installed for VEN 1180 - DEV E822. This is the Ricoh Multicard reader.Under Windows 10 1611 it had worked without problems. It works fine under Ubuntu 16.04 (has dual boot system).I have tried installing the latest driver version 2.22.18.01 released 8.6.2015 stated to be for Windows 10 and although no conflict occurs during the install, following a reboot it still shown as missing under Device Manager.The T420 is not listed under Lenovo's list of tested devices for Windows 10 1703.Has anyone else had any expereince or knowledge on what can be tried?Maybe I will just try the Windows 8 driver (version 2.22.18) from the Windows 10 driver was produced from.

Hi!

So, I recently bought a new gaming pc. The thing is, when they tried the pc at the store, everything worked well. It passed 3DMark with flying colours and it seemed ok.

Now the thing is, the pc reboots itself when I'm using it at home gaming or anything intensive. So far it lasted without rebooting for 29 min playing FFXIV, 27 for AC3 and more than 40 for LoL. I've run the Prime95 test (in all modes) and it rarely lasts more than 4-5 minutes before it restarts itself. When that happens, there's no BSOD, it just goes completely off, and restarts. No warning. Nada. Sometimes it restarts itself 3-4 (even 7 times) in a row. I ran some memtest to check my memory but they both were good.

I haven't overclocked anything. I brought it to the shop already like 3-4 times but they cannot reproduce the error because it won't restart itself there, I've been personally at the shop today gaming there and running tests and it never restarted. Right now, it's been there for 6 hours running Prime95 without crashes.

At the beginning I thought that maybe my power strip was broken or something, but then I tried the new pc in my bro's bedroom with his power strip and the same happened. And then I tried it with the PSU plugged directly into the wall and everything else to the power strip and the same happened.

I'm completely lost on what to do so any help will be welcomed.

My search function isn't working at all. Start Menu/Search brings up the page where I type in what I'm looking for. Lo and behold, the search of my C drive takes less than 5 seconds before it tells me Search is complete. There are no results to display. I run the search again-same thing. After that I did 4 things:1) Searched for a file I know exists on my slave (F) drive.2) Searched for my recipes folder on C. This folder does exist on C. I randomly chose to search for it as part of my test of search function. 3) Searched for recipes again and set this one to look in both drives.4) Logged on to the desktops of the other two computer users-search works on both of them. (As I type this, the hound has been unleashed on my daughter's account and is searching for what I originally wanted to find out if I have)All three search results were the same as above-5 seconds, complete, no results.Any ideas as to what may cause this issue and how to solve it?Three weeks ago I re-installed Windows XP. Tonight was the first time I've used search since the re-install.

A:Search Function Isn't Working

Your files system might be corrupt. The only way to fix that is by clean install of XP or whatever you are running.

Alternatively, try making a user account and then do a search on the new account and see if the same problem occurs. If it works fine then make new user accounts for everyone and delete the old ones. (Copy the old accounts files).

Also before you do any of this, try do a scandisk and search for errors.

It is a lot of information but I am sure this will help you with your problem.

Hi,

I received a lot of information on that tread by several members (many thanks for it) but still I couldn't solve it.

I know that that due too the fast startup that function doesn't work no more by some users.

I introduced the correction

bcdedit /set {default} bootmenupolicy legacy
and strang sometimes it is working
I checked via bcdedit if the command is really active
The behaviour is the same even when additionally i remove the fast start-up function.

I have a full SSD-drive ...could that be the reason?

I am wondering why sometimes (mostly never) it is working and if it works than also the longer method via PCSetting and so is fine.

Checking off the 'Turn off System Restore' checkbox and clicking on 'Apply' results in the following message: "System Restore encountered an error trying to enable one or more drives. Please restart your maching and try again." Restarting, of course, has no effect. Btw, the 'Status' section of the System Restore window indicates the following: "(C) Turned off. Not sure what that means.

I have run numerous spyware programs as well as AVG virus programs but the problem still persists.

Help.

I have a PowerPro Notebook with windows xp media center edision 2002. When I try to burn a song from my list to a cd, it shows preparing, writing to disc, and complete. Then an error message pops up saying "wmp cannot burn the files to the cd. Verify disc is clean and not damaged. Select slower speed or try different brand of disc". I have done all of the above. Used Memorex-RW and Sony-R disc. I gave the same disc to my husband to try to burn on his wmp and he was able to burn to disc just fine. I don't know too much about computers so if you can help me make sure you explain in detail just what I should do..thanks ljlemi
