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.)

Yoga 14 20FY is the Best Buy edition. Running Windows 10 Home 64-bit.
 
I looked around and did not see mention of this particular issue.
 
Not exactly sure what triggered this, but it seems like a Windows update may be the culprit. My laptop keyboard has completely stopped working. The trackpoint and trackpad work fine. External keyboard works fine. I have done the System update numerous times and don't see any outstanding updates at all.
 
Have tried to disable the PS2 keyboard driver. It goes ahead and installs a Microsoft driver (dated some time in 2006) for this. Have the Bios updated to the most recent and then installed HotKey drivers - in fact, every update listed (whether critical, recommended or optional).
 
Is there anything else left for me to try before I try to open up the case? Thanks for anything that has helped anybody else with this issue.

Weird issue, my Yoga 14 loses the active pen if I switched to Yoga mode.  It can also lose it if it comes out of sleep.  A reboot brings it back so I don't think its hardware.  Once its back it keeps working unless I switch from Yoga mode or back to regular.  Any ideas?

Just picked up a new Thinkpad Yoga. Definitely thrilled by the specifications, it seems to be the perfect laptop for me combining dedicated graphics, 2 in 1 capability, and most importantly, a wacom pen. However, upon getting it home, I find the pen doesn't work whatsoever. Curious, I went back to Best Buy and tried the pen on the display model. That one doesn't work either.Do these have some sort of widespread issue with the digitizer pens not working? Is there any known fix for this?

I purchased my ThinkPad Yoga 14 about a year and half ago and the motherboard is already fried. This is completely unacceptable. The lap top was just used for personal use and pretty much sat at a desk 24/7. I've never been more upset with a product in my entire life.

ok...so, i'm forced to use this onscreen keyboard, because my keyboard suddenly stopped working . tried switching it with another one i know works, and had the same problem with it, so, that rules out the keyboard it's self as having the issue. tried a sys restore...same prob. tried reinstalling windows, still have the problem. i have a driver for my texas instruments usb ports that is reading not successfully installed but i can't seem to find the driver 4 it anywhere, because they claim win 7 installs it automatically...but it obviously didn't. i have tried switching usb ports, tried pulling out the usb to the keyboard restarting, then plugging back in, and still have this issue. can anyone please help? ps: not getting error messages, and the keyboard claims "this device is working properly"

I have an emachine that is a few years old that my high school daughter uses. Today when she was typing a paper for school it got stuck on all caps, then it just quit working all together. I took the keyboard and put it on my computer and it works fine. My keyboard doesn't work on her computer either. I restarted which didn't help. I also retored the computer to yesterday's back up.

Was there any other problems happening before? I wouldn't think that you keyboard and mouse ports are faulty because it isn't likely that both keyboard and mouse ports fail at the same time.

My keyboard quit working. Touch any letter & I hear a click. Every key, click. But the letters don't show up.

Luckily, I can use the onscreen keyboard but man, is it slow. When I click on a letter on the onscreen keyboard, I still hear the click but the letter does show up.

I have a Dell Inspiron 17 5000 series laptop. I've been having a little trouble with the keyboard for about a month. About once in a sentence when I type a letter, it doesn't type. i.e. keybord. Type it again, it shows up. This occurs with all letters. About once in a sentence, a letter I type will show up twice. i.e. twiice. Sometimes the space button doesn't work. i.e. Sometimesthespacebuttondoesn't work.

Any ideas of what can I try to fix this.

Thank you,

Vista 64 Keyboard problem Can't figure this one out. The keyboard simply stopped working one day in my Vista 64 "archive/experiment" machine. Not the keyboard or CMOS. I also have XP and Windows 7 64 on separate disks on this machine, and they all work fine with any variation of keyboards/drivers.

Keyboard works until the VISTA 64 logon screen comes up. After Log in using the on-screen KB, device manager shows drivers for the keyboard are "Error 39" in device driver. Same error condition in Safe Mode; tried installing fresh drivers, NIL. Tried installing USB keyboard, NIL. All variations work with both XP and Windows 7 64. Has to be within this install of Vista 64. Last changes prior to failure were series of Windows and Office updates. Have unistalled them (except for SP for Office), still same problem.

This is the first problem I've ever encountered that has me stymied. Short of doing a reinstall of VISTA 64, haven't found a way around this. I've looked but can't find any conflicts in either drivers nor registry entries. Has to be some unrelated SW that stops this driver. Pretty clean system, Office 2007 w/SP's, Nero Ultra 8 (9 is awful), Roxio 2009. I've reinstalled the gateway drivers, MS drivers, etc. NIL. I've unistalled NERO since the v9.0 was an abomination. Deleted the KB drivers in both SYSTEM32 and in WOW64 folders, installed clean copies. NIL. System is Gateway FX530, QUAD, 8800GTX, 8GB memory, 3 SATA drives, each with own OS.

Hello Jon, and welcome to Vista Forums.

You might see if doing a System Restore using a restore point dated when you knew the KB was working may fix it for you.

KEYBOARD QUIT WORKING not immediately after win 10 upgrade from 8, but after some time. This is a relatively recent problem. I went and bought a replacement keyboard thinking mine haid broken somehow. The brand new replacement part does not function either. I am speculating that an automatic update may have caused this problem. The computer may have went into hibernation before but has been rebooted since. I do not know if the hibernation causes a permanent keyboard problem I just heard it may cause one. I attempted hard reset to no avail The TOUCHPAD STILL WORKS. G6 model g6-1d67cl / PN: A6Y42UA I am now forced to use a wireless external keyboard but would prefer a solution to the problem other than the on screen keyboard.

Yesterday two keyboard shortcuts that I use constantly quit working - Alt+Tab to switch between windows and Control+Click to open a link in a new tab in Internet Explorer. The only change was the download and installation of Turbotax Home & Business - in fact, the first I noticed the problem was while the installation was taking place. I searched the Internet and found one older post on this site that addressed the Alt+Tab problem, but I did not see a resolution. I checked my Registry and the "coolswitch" settings are where they should be. I called Turbotax, but they were of NO help. Not positive it is related to that installation, but very suspicious. I have a Microsoft wireless keyboard and mouse. Can anyone help? Thanks.

I wanted to know if this was a known issue with this model.  Since I bought this system last November, the display has been a problem.  Besides, what I consider to be severe, light leakage in the corners of the display - any time I even slightly touch the back of the display assembly to adjust the angle there is an extremely noticeable rippling effect in the display.  I have never seen a display with this severe of a ripple effect.  I've sent the system in twice for service and I don't think the technician understands what the issue is or the person that wrote the ticket did not explain the symptoms correctly.  On top of the light leakage never getting fixed, it seems the rippling effect has gotten worse every time I sent in the system.  I have extended my warranty in the hopes of getting this issue resolved one day but I can't seem to find anyone that has had a similar issue.

I stopped immediately booted into safe mode & ran superantispyware & went to bed. Next morning, it said nothing found. so then I ran malwarebytes, nothing found & avast scan, nothing found. Then the keyboard quit working all together, but touchpad still works. I hooked up a usb keyboard & it works fine. When I restart computer it gets stuck on the windows 7 boot menu & will go no further until I hit enter, never had to do that before. Also a few times firefox would only run in it's safe mode, now it's like normal but takes forever to open the first window. Went back into safe mode, ran microsoft security scan. Found 1 item, deleted that. Still doing the same thing. I dont think it's the keyboard, because I installed a new one about 6 months ago & too many other strange things happening all at once. Someone please help! I am about to pull my hair out with this one!

Hi, I am join the Lenovo forums to seek assitance with an issue with my Thinkpad Yoga 14. I recently purchased the notenook from Best Buy and it has been great.  But there's an intermitten issue with the screen going black. My theory was that the ambient light sensor is what tells the laptop it's closed, and it was getting obscured, causing my screen to turn off. This issue occurs when I am using it in tablet mode and during the process of the folding the screen back. The screen is fine in laptop mode, unless I adjust the angle of the screen.  So it seems every time I place my hand on the screen to draw, or fold the hinge, the screen will turn black. I have taken the following steps:-Updated Windows and all my Lenovo Apps.-Changing power options to 'Do Nothing' when lid closes.  Does anyone else have this issue? I am hoping this is not a hardware issue   Thanks everyone.

I am running the latest drivers from Lenovo's website and I have noticed that after a while (possibly after putting my computer to sleep and waking it up again), the ETD Control Center (which must be running in order to have full touchpad functionality) will constantly use ~30% CPU. This obviously impacts battery life, but it also makes my laptop produce more heat and noise than it would otherwise, while running slower. It is undesirable behavior. I have already tried uninstalling the drivers and reinstalling them, running the older version, or running the newer version. Nothing helps. Whenever this software is running, it does not take long before it is thrashing my CPU. Currently I am running the latest version of the software that is available on Lenovo's website, and I have updated everything possible using Lenovo's update software. I am running windows 10 and have the Elan touchpad drivers installed.

2. What is the part number for the screen? I need it to purchase online. Online forums suggest opening the screen to see the part number. Is there a way to see part number using model, and machine type (posted above)? I need part number of non-touch screen, if that will work with the laptop.

Windows 8.1 Pro x64
Yoga 14 (20FY), two weeks old.

Installed Win 8.1 from bootable USB when I got it. Installed drivers I needed from the Lenovo driver site. There is no sensor driver on their site.

I have tried it only in tent and tablet mode as it?s supposed to. There is no windows rotate lock button there is no windows rotate button.

I have downloaded all the drivers and auto rotate still does not work. I have tried ThinkVantage. I have tried installing the 20DM and 20DN drivers and they also do not work. It requires me to update net framework which I cannot find the download to and I cannot change the net framework version in the registry.

I have tried emailing Lenovo in Australia because the US does not have a support email. It does not seem like they will be of any use since it has been two weeks.

In the device manager, the only devices under sensors is Windows Location Provider. There should be Simple Orientation Manager and HID Sensor Collection but I cannot find the drivers for them anywhere.

Are there any generic drivers I can download?

I picked up a Skylake yoga 14 (model # 20FY0002US) and I'm not getting anything from the DVI or HDMI outputs on a mini-DP to HDMI/DP/DVI adapter. This is the particular adapter I tried:http://www.amazon.com/DisplayPort-Thunderbolt-HDMI%C2%AE-Passive-Adapter/dp/B013Z71ZI0/ref=sr_1_9?ie... To be clear, the adapter offers DVI, HDMI, and DP outputs, only one of which works at a time. I'm not trying to plug three monitors into it. However, if I hook up a monitor via either the DVI or the HDMI outputs, the computer freezes for 15-60 seconds and nothing shows up on the external monitor. Drivers are all updated. I've tried the adapter on a Surface Pro 3 and it worked flawlessly. I've also tried it with multiple external monitors, so the problem is definitely with my ThinkPad. I've also tried DP1.1 and DP 1.2 versions of the adapter. Again, nothing out of the DVI or HDMI outputs.  Oddly enough, when I tried a simple mini-DP to VGA adapter, it worked.  What gives? This is a pretty important functionality to be missing...

I've tried two miniDP to DVI cables which neither worked.  I just bought an Apple miniDP to VGA adapter and that doesn't work either.  I've tested the monitors and they are good.  I'm assuming the cables are not the issue since I tried three.  I just read on another post that it is a design limitation that miniDP to HDMI or DVI do not work with this laptop.  I don't understand that.  However, it says that miniDP to VGA should work.  It clearly works for you.  Did you do anything other than plug the adapter in?

Hello, I am freaking out as I am typing this right now at 2 am as a couple of my key caps in the lower right hand corner just fell off the keyboard for no apparent reason. I tried putting them back on but the clips on the underside of the key caps seem to be broken. Is this covered under warranty? If so, will Lenovo send me a new keyboard or will I have to send the machine in? I really hope that Lenovo can send me one as I really need my machine and I am capable of replacing the keyboard on my own as I have serviced multiple ThinkPads in the past. Thanks in advance! Edit:I should mention that my warranty is good until January 12.

I just did a clean install of Windows 10 on my Thinkpad Yoga 14. I've attempted to install all of the drivers that I could. The only thing missing for the laptop is that I cannot get it to auto-rotate when in tablet mode. The auto-rotate setting is missing from the action center and going into display settings doesn't have any option to allow auto-rotation. I've also tried enabling the Sensor, the Sensor Monitoring service and the Sensor Data Service with no luck. What are the requirements to get this working? Thanks!

Hi
 
You are missing the action center? first time I hear about that, but I found this on some other source. 
I will also check it when I have some more time.

I have a Yoga 14 (Type 20FY) running Windows 10 64-bit, and my screen works fine in notebook, stand, and tent mode, but turns off the second I rotate it past tent mode and into tablet mode. I heard this may be related to a (relatively) recent Windows 10 update, but I honestly don't know. My computer is out of warranty and I have no income at the time, so I'd love to be able to fix this without taking it to a professional.

I have a Yoga 14 (Type 20FY) that I am hoping to improve the gestures of. Currently the touchpad settings do not have any option for a four finger swipe. I have the latest drivers (11.21.9.3 Elan). I am looking to add the ability to use the four finger swipe to change desktops.

While I like most things about my Yoga 14 notebook, it has this annoying habit of going to sleep about 1 minute, even when it's plugged into a OneLink+ docking station.   I have the OS updated to the latest Windows 10 Creator's Edition and all device drivers up-to-date.   It's done this since I bought the machine earlier this year and I haven't been able to figure-out how to get it to honor the sleep settings in Windows.   Is there a BIOS setting or something that is forcing it to go to sleep after 1 minute?
