Keyboard, mouse, touch pad, and touch screen won't work

Question: Keyboard, mouse, touch pad, and touch screen won't work

Hello,I am desperate for help. My laptop will turn on. And I can type in my password. But then when the computer loads it takes a very long time and when it gets to the desktop the keyboard, the mouse, the touchpad, and the touch screen won't work. I can see everything on my desktop. But I cannot open anything or do anything at all. How can I fix this?Thank you!!!

Preferred Solution: Keyboard, mouse, touch pad, and touch screen won't work

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 lost the use of my keyboard, but not the touch pad. Restarting and converting to table mode and back doesn't correct the issue. Thoughts? I'm not sur where to go from here. Could the keyboard be physically dead?

Answer:Yoga 2 Keyboard not working, but touch pad and touch screen fine

You should test the keyboard in the BIOS menu and see whether it works. 1) Press on the recovery button (next to the power button, you may need a small screwdriver). https://www.flickr.com/photos/lead_org/11617761143/in/set-721576390073780542) Then there is an option menu for entering recovery, bios, etc. https://www.flickr.com/photos/lead_org/14512183979/in/set-72157639007378054Use your keyboard and see whether it works in that option menu. If it doesn't work then it is a faulty keyboard.

Answer:Logitech Touch Mouse 400 for a Laptop with no touch screen

Sorry I can't answer your question, but this post piqued my interest. I use the Logitech 620 touch mouse on a Windows 7 box at work. I find a little touchy and has to tweaked. But I haven't tried the 620 on Windows 8. Because I'm always looking for the perfect mouse, I think I might just pick up the 400 tonight and let you know.

I have ThinkPad X230 Tablet. It used to have non-functioning touch screen. I did something, and now the screen responds to pen input, but it doesn't work properly for finger touch. When I touch with finger, only thing it does is minimize or maximize window. When I change position of taskbar (with start menu and icons), it doesn't maximize/minimize.  I think this means that when I touch with finger, cursor clicks at bottom right corner of display, where there is button for maximize/minimize window

I upgraded to Windows 10 last week. Everything has been working fine. I needed to install some software in auto mode so I turned off UAC and rebooted. Now when the system comes back up none of the input devices work! The keyboard and mouse do not work and the touch screen is not working either. All I can do it hold down the power button to reboot. If I hold it down for 3 cycles it goes into auto repair mode. In that mode the keyboard mouse and touch screen all work fine. If I set it to reboot into safe mode when it reboots I still cannot use the keyboard mouse or touch screen. What's going on here? Can anyone help me? Chris

Answer:Horizon S2 keyboard mouse touch screen not working!

Strange. I think it could be a driver issue. Try reinstalling those drivers for your computer. If you need help, please respond! If that doesn't help, you can always restore to go back to when it was working fine.

Hi, I have just upgraded to 8.1 and the only issue I have so far is the not working multi-touch gestures function. No more scrolling with two fingers, no more pinching to zoom in and out from the photos, NO MORE FUN  Also the touch keyboard has been very annoying.. It has been popping up all the time when i am using the computer in 90 degree position. Happened since before the upgrade though. Does anyone have an idea? (I don't want to disable it, I use it sometimes!) My poor Yoga, can someone please help :'( Thanks in advance!

Ok, so I got my Yoga 2 Pro 5 days ago. It was been working great until today. I turned it on and I noticed that the on screen volume indicator was active and at 100%. I pushed and held the volume down button and the indicator went down but as soon as I let it go, it goes all the way back up to 100% volume as if a ghost is making it happen. The volume indicator will not disappear. So I thought that maybe I did something wrong. I restarted the computer and nothing changed. Here is what else I've noticed: Volume indicator stays on all the time and will not disappearOn screen touch keyboard is inoperable, comes up but goes down immediately.Touchpad is unresponsive and swipe gestures don't work on the touchpad.The on screen start button (on the windows taskbar) doesn't work. Is not clickable.When I open apps, they open minimized and start blinking orange on the taskbar.In my office documents, when I right click, menu immediately disappearsI uninstalled and reinstalled the audio and touchpad drivers. Didn't work. It seems that something is either being depressed or is hungup or conflicting. I can't figure out what it is. I haven't tried much else, so I don't know if other features aren't working.  This is driving me crazy. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I have a T43, one day  i cleaned the fan but then found its left button of touch pad and touch point doesn't work  anymore, i tried switching the left and right button funtion on the OS and then the left still doesn't work. Firstly, i think it may because wrong connection, so i detach the cover and reconnect all connectors...but soon find the Wireless Adapter which is fitted under the touch pad doesn't work well...Once i installed the driver for WLAN,  the OS is frozen and even i disabled the WLAN from OS, the OS is still forzen frequently.  Now i have to install a new OS and don't install drivers for WLAN, in addition, The LAN adapter works well.  During the reconnection, i cleaned the gold finger of WLAN using IPA...is it the root cause? wish sb can help me.

Hi guys,
I've just installed win8 on my media PC, I'm really happy with it for the most part, it's not worse then win7, there are some small but helpful changes to wmc. Metro looks great on the tv. There is just one problem, when I click on text boxes in metro apps with the mouse I don't get a keyboard as you would if you touched the text box. This is particularly annoying as I don't have a keyboard in my lounge room, and it seems that there is a whole new interface that would be perfect on the tv that I can't use very effectively I know you can launch osk.exe from the desktop and then switch to metro and it will stay on top but it's not really a very smooth solution. So i suspect there is a reg hack that I can implement that will cause the mouse to launch the touch keyboard in metro - is there? can someone tell me what it is? or any other solutions that would enable me to effectively use the metro interface with only a mouse input would be great. If this can't be done I really do think it's a massive oversight from Microsoft! There is a good interface that is unusable without a keyboard or touch. If i was to buy a new touch mouse would that do the trick or is it going to behave like a mouse in this respect?

Thank you very much for your assistance.

I've had my Lenovo B50-30T for less than a year and for the most part, it hasn't given me a hard time. Occasionally though, the mouse seems to "attach" itself onto an object and then after it detaches, left click stops working. I know it's hard to explain, so I'm going to give an example: While reading articles online, the cursor stuck to the scroll bar at the side of the browser. No matter where I moved the mouse, it remained attached to the scroll bar; moving it up and down. Then when it finally moved away, I wasn't able to left click. (Right click worked just fine) After a while, it goes back to normal, but that "while"can last anywhere from 2 minutes to half an hour. I tried plugging in a USB mouse the last time it happened, and that worked just fine. When I unplugged it, the problem remained. I also re-installed the drivers from the Lenovo website, but the problem returned. Any idea what the problem could be?

I have an Ideapad P500 Touch  It came with windows 8 and I upgraded to 8.1 a couple months ago..( there were issues with that but I thought I fixed them at the time) Set up:At work, I attach a 22 inch screen and use that and the laptop screen at the same time. I also use an optical mouse connected to USB.Now, when I turn on my machine, I usually put the web on my 22 inch screen. While putting email and other Office programs on the laptop screen.Problems as follows: 1. Cursor wants to jump:When I try to type or scroll on the big screen my cursor jumps.The pointer is still on the big screen but the cursor action is suddenly on the laptop screen. When this happens there is a lot of flashing of the laptop screen and the bubbles pop up.. (I don't know what the bubbles are; I 'm assuming it the computer telling me it's thinking) This is very troublesome when trying to type. Sometimes it just instantly jumps on the first letter I type sometimes I can get a word typed in. ( Good Times..) Strangely I have not had one problem typing this out!!!? 2.

Answer:S510p Touch Keyboard & Mouse Erratic

Welcome to the Lenovo Community !
 
No apologies needed about the typing,  we understand.
 
First, try clearing the CMOS to see if that resolves the issue.  The clearing of CMOS can be useful in resolving some hardware conflicts.  Just follow the steps below....
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.
 
If the clearing didn't work then next uninstall the mouse / keyboard driver, reboot the computer and then install a fresh copy.  The link below is for a download of the available driver....
 
http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/products/laptops-and-netbooks/ideapad-s-series-netbooks/ideapad-s510...
 
If the driver install didn't work then I recommend you call Lenovo Support for additional service as the problem may likely be hardware related.

Hi, I'm new here and I really need some help with my laptop.
I have a Dell Inspiron 6400, running Windows XP Media Center Edition (I've had the laptop for almost 3 years) and recently I've been having problems with my wireless mouse, the laptop's keyboard and touch pad.
Recently (since last Tuesday) whenever I use my laptop's keyboard it lags very badly. It sometimes doesn't pick up letters and to type anything without missing letters I have to hold down a letter for a few seconds. Also my laptop's touch pad lags very badly as well. And lastly my wireless mouse lags, nowhere near as bad as the touch pad (a short pause every 2-3 seconds), but it's enough to be annoying, but the wireless keyboard is absolutely fine.

I've already done a few things, I've checked to see if any processes are using a lot of the CPU (none are), there's no unusual processes running either, I ran a virus scan and it found nothing, I ran chkdsk (/p and /r, neither found anything), and I replaced the ntoskrnl.exe file in my system32 folder (I was randomly getting errors saying that it was corrupt or missing when I turned on my laptop, but I think that fixed it), I've also plugged in a wired mouse in to my laptop and got the same lag as the wireless one.

Can anyone help me with this? I really need help

Thanks
 

Answer:Wireless mouse lag and laptop keyboard and touch pad lag

Can't anyone help me?

Here's a little update.
The lag with the wireless mouse is gone, but the lag with everything else is still there.
I had to repair my windows install because I was randomly getting an error at start up saying that windows couldn't start because the ntoskrnl.exe file was missing or corrupted. Then it would only come up with a screen asking if I wanted to start safe mode, start windows normally, etc.
It came up with the ntoskrnl.exe error came up again after the repair, but it can start up now.
Please, someone help.

I have an Acer Aspire M computer with a touch screen that runs Windows 8.1. I was having issues with the touch screen, so I went to download the drivers from the Acer website. However, when I restarted my computer to complete the installation, it wouldn't allow me to use either the mouse, touch screen, or keyboard.
Normally, after loading, a personalized picture will appear on the screen, displaying the time, connectibility, and strength of the network. The user is then supposed to swipe up, click on, or press space to move the picture, at which point the login screen appears. My computer loads normally when starting, but won't allow me to use the mouse, touch screen, or keyboard to move the picture out of the way, so I cannot access the login screen.
I have already contacted the Acer company support and attempted to use the battery reset pinhole, but to no avail. Is there anything I can do, besides a factory reset or using it as a cat bed?

Answer:No touch, mouse, or keyboard input after computer reset

using it as a cat bed



Probably best.

You could uninstall those drivers, looks like you will need to do it from outside windows.

You would need a decent winpe., which you probably don't have, nigh on impossible to make one given your situation.

System restore to just before the problem may do the job.

Try that and see.

I hope I am posting in the right section. Either way, I hope that someone would have an idea what the hell is happening with my laptop. It was working fine for a couple of months, and out of nowhere, from yesterday it started doing the craziest stuff I've seen any PC/Laptop do.  The buttons on the left don't work at all (the num pad numbers). The numbers above the alphabet keys write only symbols e.g.: 12345.. --> [email protected]#$%..., and nothing can change that. The windows key doesn't work at all, and other strange keyboard behavior. And that is not all. On top of that, when I click an icon on the desktop, all the other icons become marked as well, and when I open "This PC" (win 8.1), it opens not only "My computer", but 10 more folders. I cannot undo it, it does that in every folder I go in, it just marks everything, and even if I click on empty space, they still stay as "marked".  Things get even more strange. The problem is not fixed by restart, safe boot or restore point (I tried them all), it is fixed by restarting the PC, but while its booting, I spam F2+F8+F12 at the same time, and when the laptop loads, everything works just fine, like nothing ever happened. But when I restart it (without spamming the F2+F8+F12 keys), it goes bad all over again...  I have never seen such strange behavior out of a laptop, like ever. I am sorry if my description of the problem is not good enough, but I hope someone has the slightest idea what is going on.

Answer:G580 Keyboard/Touch Pad/Mouse doing the strangest things

hi daniel2215,
 
Welcome to the Forums.
 
The weird behavior of the number keys only shows symbols and all the icon on the desktop gets highlighted by clicking only one icon is most likely caused by a defective shift key as it's the same behavior when you have icons listed vertically and you hold shift key and click the icon at the bottom (same goes to folders).
 
Things that you can try:
1. Use Passmark's Keyboard Test to check the input of the keyboard keys
2. Use a live cd (i.e. Ubuntu Live) to isolate if the issue is OS level. If the same thing happens to the live OS, you most likely have a defective keyboard and you need to contact lenovo for service.
 
Note:
For models preloaded with Windows 8, you may need to turn off UEFI, Secure Boot, and OS Optimized Defaults to Disabled/Legacy mode/Other OS mode for the Live OS to work.
 
 
Regards

Clicking the touchscreen button in the taskbar won't open the keyboard. As well when I click a text box, the keyboard doens't show either. I have already enabled all the touch keyboard settings.  It will randomly start working again too. To replicate the issue, I have to use the pen first, then try to use the touch keyboard again, then it won't show up. So the pen probably has something to do with it.

Finally I tried running Windows 8 PC refresh, which worked as it's supposed to so I got to reinstall all my software but didn't fix the missing charms bar! Has anyone had a similar problem with the touch screen right-side swipe and been able to fix it?  Any help would be greatly appreciated!   Thanks!cait If you use an external mouse and move the pointer to the right will the charms bar appear?

Hi, I have the Lenovo X1 Carbon Touch, new as of april 2014, and since last week, the touch screen has stopped responding to touch inputs. Before this it has been working and behaving perfectly. I have tried to turn the laptop entirely off and on, reboots... No effect. The screen simply acts like it never was touch. The HID driver is present and claims to be working. I tried to reinstall it and it does so with no errors or warnings. I also tried to reinstall the monitor and graphics card drivers. The Tablet control panel icon offers a calibrate option but Reset is disabled. The calibrate doesn't help because it doesn't respond to touch. System says it has touch with 10 finger inputs. Windows 8.1 Update 1, Enterprise SKU Any advice is welcome. UPDATE! Touch works when I lay the screen out flat. But if I return it to any angle, it stops working. Is this related to LayFlat mode or is there a connection fault in the display for touch input so only when I lay it flat it has contact? Software or hardware?

Hi I bought a Acer ICONIA 6120 Dual Touch Screen Laptop in 2011 when I was in US. I returned to India in 2011. In 2014 the bottom touch screen virtual key board started mal-functioning. The keys will automatically click making it unable to use. I gave it to a local technician he disabled the bottom touch screen. He also said the Hard Drive is corrupted needs replacement. He replaced with a new 500GB hard drive. While replacing it he changed the Windows 7 home premium to Windows 7 ultimate. From then on we were using it with a wireless key board. Now I am trying to repair the laptop. 1) Where can get 14" bottom touch screen so that I can buy and install 2) Where can get the recovery disks along with windows 7 home premium Thanks in advance for your help

Answer:Acer ICONIA 6120 Dual Touch Screen - Bottom Touch ...

I suggest that you first try to recover the laptop to factory-fresh Win7 home premium by purchasing the Iconia 6120 recovery media. This may help resolve the bottom screen issue. If you aren't in the US, please click on support at the top of this page. Choose the country. Then click "get support". And then choose contact acer for tablets. You should then get phone numbers or email addresses for Acer representatives who might help arrange for you to get this media.  Jack E/NJ

Received my ThinkPad Yoga today - i7 ? 8 Gb - 256 Gb SSD - Win 8.1 pro ? One major problem ? the touch screen stops responding to finger intermittently. It always responds to the stylus. Updated all the Lenovo drivers and did Windows updates. When it stops responding, the only way to get it to work is by doing a shut down ( restart does not work ). Read the forums and disabled and enabled HID-compliant vendor-defined device. That did not make any difference. Is this a common issue and is there a software fix for it or is it just a faulty screen?

Answer:Thinkpad Yoga 20CDCTR1WW - Touch Screen not responding to touch - intermittent

Hi Waferthin,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community!
 
I?m sorry to hear that you are facing the issue with Touch screen on ThinkPad Yoga.
 
To resolve the issue please follow the below troubleshooting steps.
 

Remove the Wacom touch gesture driver in the device manager and make sure to check "uninstall driver" when you do so otherwise the touch will stop working again a minute later.
And after that restart the system and the touch screen driver will automatically install.
In services.msc restart human interface device service to run automatically.

Hope this helps! 
 
Best regards,
Hemanth Kumar

Drivers all show working properly. Not intermittent. Tried settings and no help. No response when touching screen at all. Can't calibrate. Bios has no update available. Nothing in manual under troubleshooting. Any quick fix suggestions have likely been tried, but open to all ideas. If all else fails, and assuming the digitizer is bad, what does repair entail and any rough estimate?Is there any recall? I see this issue on the forum a lot with not many folks getting it resolved.TIA!!

Answer:U310 IdeaPad Touch :The Touch Screen Stopped Working. No Previous Posts Have Helped.

hi c2nah777,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
Have you tried booting the system in Recovery Mode (One Key Recovery), You're not going to Recover the system since your only going to check the touchscreen in that mode "Outside Windows"
 
See if the touhcscreen works there,
If Yes, I would suggest doing a factory Reset First Before jumping into a hardware Repair.
If No, Then I think you're correct with the digitizer.

Answer:Ideapad S415 Touch - touch screen stopped working

hi Hersh,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
First do a Power Drain 
     (If the battery is removable)
            Remove AC and Battery and hold the power button down for 15 sec.
               Turn the computer back on and see if the Touch capability is now detected under System Properties,
                  If not
         I suggest you contact Lenovo Technical Team about the Issue as this may be a device detection issue.

Hello, this is my situationI have bought my Lenovo Z400 Touch 59366600 in June last year, and it came with a non-functional webcam. In September last year, the touchscreen started exhibiting the spurious touch input fault on the left edge, rendering the computer unusable until the touchscreen is disabled in Windows. At some point after this, I have disassembled the computer.I have since moved to Austria, and I wish to solve my laptop's problems and am willing to pay a fee for the service. How can I do so? In addition, I have already bought a new SSD and more RAM to upgrade my computer, and am planning on installing Windows onto the SSD, however the Windows installer will detect the touchscreen and it will be impossible to click any buttons on screen.

I have always updated with latest updates by Microsoft including Window 8.1/latest driver by Lenovo but I think this is not the issue with Windows upgrade because this was done months back and touch was working perfectly. If this is hardware problem the Lenovo should accept the fault and change the failure part free of cost or come up with some solution because many Lenovo users suffering with this problem.

For the past several weeks I've experienced a very annoying problem with my ThinkPad.  Whenever the laptop goes to sleep and resumes the touch screen goes... crazy. It starts registering multiple inputs across the touchscreen and the only thing that seems to resolve the issue is a restart. Sometimes, upon restart, the touch screen works normally, other times it does not work at all.  Has anyone else experienced this issue? I've seen this issue described for other Lenovo models with fixes, but none for my model.  Under the hardware ID in device manager, this monitor is a LEN 40A4.  I'm running Windows 10.  This is my third Thinkpad X1 Carbon, not because I love to upgrade, but because these machines seem to only last one year before something major breaks.

My Lenovo U410 Touch recently got damaged - the hinge broke causing the touch screen to **bleep**.I was told that a repair was not feasible as none of the repair shops near me were able to source the parts needed.I therefore bought a new laptop. However, there is a lot of data on the old laptop that I want to access, including sorting out the licensing of MS Office (by uninstalling from the old one).I cannot do anything about it as the old machine is completely unusable as due to the touch screen being cracked, it seems to think it is constantly being touched in multiple places on the screen. This means that I cannot access the laptop to copy the data or uninstall Office. Anyone know any way around this that doesn't involve taking it to a repair shop to "recover" my data. Cheers

So I have a small 10" touch screen as a secondary screen and it is recognized and installed when I plug it in the computer.My problem is that the actual touching is severly misplaced and I can notuse the calibration tool (Tablet PC Settings in control panel) to correct this problem.It is as if the vertical and horisontal inputs of the screen has been swapped. If I touch the right side on the screen and drag my finger to the left I can see the cursor go from the top to the bottom and if I touch the top and drag down the cursor goes from the left side of the screen to the right side of the screen.Installing the drivers from the manufacturer of the touch controller, http://www.eeti.com, did not help at all.

Hi @frostygirl13, and thank you for your post.Welcome to the HP Support Forums! It is a great place to find the help you need, from other users, HP experts and other support personnel. My understanding of your post is that you are dealing with two issues, one, the projector lamp is on, when you expect it to be off, and two, the touch mat is not working for you. I am happy to give you a hand with this. For the first issue with the projector, I found the following post, with suggestions from forum experts @DavidPK and @WyreNut:  Sprout Projector.  This may be difficult to do based on your second issue. For the second issue with the touch mat, I would first make sure that you have all of your drivers up to date, and make sure you have the latest update for Sprout Workspace installed. You can use the HP Support Assistant, to check for updates. Please let me know how that works for you, and if it does resolve your issue, please mark this post as a solution. Kudos would also be appreciated.

The touchscreen stopped working suddenly on my Envy TouchSmart Sleekbook 4-1115dx. At first i though it was like a normal failure and that will get fixed by turning the pc off or restarting so I did not pay attention to it until now that I had restart my pc multiple times. Currently running win10. I started to believe it was because of an update a few days ago since it was when the problem started but all drivers and everything is up to date. I have checked for the HID-compliant Touch Screen driver and had to  show hidden divices in order to find it. I cannot enable it and when i check in the properties the following message displays: "Currently, this hardware device is not connected to the computer.

Answer:Lenovo S210 Touch broken LCD and Touch screen

Hi Magnutus, welcome to the forums.
 
Please check if you Lenovo S210 is on warranty under with this tool.
After that you can open a ticket with Lenovo for the screen to be fixed, if it is not under warranty it will have a cost.
 
If you are the guys that like to fix it yourself (and it is not under warranty) I can recommend you to check the support site for your model, read the Hardware Maintenance Manual (on the documents area) and check how the machine is organized on the inside. On the parts lookup page you can find the parts number so you can find a replacements for the component that is giving you issues.
 
I hope this links helps you.
Regards

The trackpad (from how it seems) causes Windows to switch to touch mode on the W541. What triggers touch mode?- Using the trackpad;- Unlocking the laptop. So why care if the W541 does not have any touch capabilities anyway?- Apps switch to touch mode which enlarges elements and makes work inefficient;- Websites switch to touch mode which makes certain web elements unusable;- The notifications button is moved off the screen for a while (see attachment);- The famous touch keyboard button shows up in the taskbar. What we have tried so far:- Updating all drivers provided by Lenovo;- Disabling tablet mode from Settings ? Tablet mode;- Disabling the Synaptics Pointing Device from Device Manager;- Disabling Human Interface Devices (even though nothing with ?touch? is listed here) from Device Manager;- Disabling all trackpad features from Synaptics. The way to work from the W541 is to use a mouse without ever touching the trackpad and to never lock the laptop which is ridiculous. Operating system: Windows 10 Enterprise (issue also confirmed on Windows 8)

Does anyone know the following about the 2015 X1 Carbon 2560 x 1440 screen? Does the touchscreen still have the same hazy film that prior generations had?  We have a couple of the older ones at the office and that hazy film makes it very fatiguing to read text.  Does the non-touch have the film?  Is the non-touch clearer and easier to read text on? Are the screens matte or gloss? I know lenovo doesn't recommend removing the film but it appears many people have removed it.  Is there any detriment to removing the film? Thanks in advance.

Answer:X1 Carbon 2015 (Gen 3) touch vs non-touch screen clarity

I have a 2015 X1 Carbon with the 2560x1440. I don't notice any hazy film over the screen (but I have heard that Lenovo coats it with something). It's a glossy screen but probably a bit less glossy than some others I've used.That said, the screen is fairly dim (I think max 270 nits) and I need to leave the brightness nearly all the way up which eats away at battery life. But at that setting, it's terrific for me.

Hi everyone,
I have a 1.5 year old Dell Latitude 3540 laptop, which I've recently upgraded to Windows 10 Pro (from 8.1 Pro). It has a non-touch screen.
For some reason, Windows 10 sometimes thinks it has a touch screen. It then shows the icon for the touch keyboard at the bottom right corner, and when going to Settings->System->About, under "Pen and Touch" it says "Touch support with 2 touch points".
This doesn't really bother me, as it doesn't seem to actually influence anything important. But still, seems pretty strange.
Did anyone else here experience something similar?

Hey everybody, I just received my P40 last week as a replacement for another Lenovo device. So far, everything seems to work fine with one exception: When I turn the screen over to the "tablet position", the touch screen and the touch pen show erroneous behaviour.a) As soon as I make the first input with the touch pen, I cannot make any further input with my finger, so the touch input is simply turned off. The Windows setting to ignore touch input when the stylus is used is not active.b) When I try to tap buttons at certain areas of the screen, especially at the upper edge, the cursor of the stylus starts jumping around and shows up at the lower edge of the screen. That means that when I for example tap on the "X" symbol in the upper right corner to close a window, I actually click on some of the symbols in the system tray in the lower right corner. This problem stops occuring as soon as the angle between the two case parts (screen and keyboard) reaches/exceeds approx. 40. It does not matter if Windows is in "Tablet" or "Desktop" Mode. I already tried to manually install another Wacom driver mentioned at https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-S-Series-ThinkPad-Yoga/Wacom-Tablet-Service-for-ISD-Driver-Win... and https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-P-and-W-Series-Mobile/P40-Yoga-issues/td-p/3293985.

Hello, My Thinkpad Yoga is connected to a large display through ThenkPad docking station.  Its lid is closed.   During my work, from time to time I see random touch clicks on my screen, and random opening of menus.  It is clear that the touch screen is active although the lid is closed.  When I open the lid, and still connected just to the 2nd display (large screen) display the phenomena stops.  Worth noting is that although only the 2nd display shows an image, the laptop touch screen is still sensetive to touch.  This is I guess why the random touches show up on the screen -- it feels the keyboard not fingers. I expect the touch screen to be disabled while the lid is closed or when projecting only to the 2nd screen.  The solution of opening the lid while connected to the docking station is not acceptable.  Lenovo's local support suggestion to disable touch for the Yoga is also not acceptable -- people purchase Yoga to get Touch.   A solution please! Yaron

Answer:Yoga touch screen generates random touch while lid...

I am experiencing the very same thing.A driver/BIOS update would be very much appreciated, dear Lenovo.

Has anyone noticed that every once in a while, a Yoga screen becomes unresponsive to touch?  I use mine mostly in tablet mode, and sometimes out of the blue, I can no longer do anything with the screen.  I have to use the power button to put the laptop to sleep, and then press it again to wake--everything works again after that.  So I'm wondering why that happens.  Is it a touchscreen driver crashing?  Has anyone found whether there's some driver version that works better or else another solution?  P.S.: Im using all the latest drivers I could find, including the latest Intel display driver.  No other issues at all other than this one.

Answer:Yoga 2 Pro: touch screen stops responding to touch sometimes

I have not had this issue, but is it possible that it has something to do with transitioning in and out of tablet mode?   In my normal usage I have to fold the screen about halfway closed to set my T2P down which puts the device in tablet mode.  Occasionally, when I open it back up the keyboard and touchpad do not respond.  If I close it most of the way then reopen, it snaps back to laptop mode and all is OK.  Your issue may be completely unrelated, but I am offering it in case it jogs some other thoughts.

Hello everyone, my touch screen on my lenovo ideapad z400 touch is not working anymore.  The only weird thing I remember is some ghost touchpoint on my screen. I've been looking for the answer to this issue, but it seems that Lenovo does not address this problem.  If someone has found the solution to this problem and wants to share it with me, I will be forever grateful.

The laptop has vertical lines of dead pixels running across the screen and I want to get the LCD replaced. Now the non touch screen model of this laptop has a Full HD variant (1920x1080) as opposed to the standard 1366x768 WXGA HD display while the touch models only come with the WXGA HD LCDs. Can I replace the LCD of my touch screen model with the FHD one? I have been able to detach the digitiser from the LCD itself and have the hinges and screws so I would assume it would be a simple case of changing one LCD with the other. The replacement touch screen models all come with the digitizer and hinges attached which is not something I require so it would be easier (and cheaper!) if I only got the LCD replaced. Lastly, if this is possible, do I need to purchase any additional cables? If so, which one?Thanks in advance.

Answer:Replacing Dell 15R 5537 Touch screen LCD with FHD non touch LCD

You're going to need at least the FHD wiring harness:

the screen

and the bezel

You may or may not be able to re-use the back cover/hinge assembly - usually these are different between non-touch and touch versions.

Answer:Equium A200-1VO - touch pad doesn't work but external mouse does

XP or Vista?

Did you use a Toshiba Recovery disc to install Windows? Or a generic street version of Windows?

Maybe you need to go to the Toshiba website and download some drivers.

Hi johnwprice,
Go to Control Panel -> Ease of Access -> Ease of Access Center -> ?Use the computer without a mouse or keyboard? and uncheck the ?Use On-Screen Keyboard" option and click Ok.
Then, click on ?Change administrative settings" options and check the "Apply all settings to the logon desktop" and press Apply.

Here is the problem I have experienced for the on-screen keyboard (with or without tablet mode),
- When the on-screen keyboard comes up, the windows will not automatically resize to make way. The Keyboard will end up covering the window. (In Windows 8.1, all windows will resize.) (In Windows 10, only Store App and Microsoft Edge knows how to resize.)
Any thoughts?

Finally I discovered the causes of the slow internet speed in my U410 Touch when I am using WLAN. For the past 2-3 months I was puzzled as to the causes. Today I played around with the postion of the lid and the attachment of an external keyboard and mouse. I then checked the internet download and upload speeds using oe of the tests available in web.Conclusions1. The lid needs to be in an upright position. Normal this is the position when one is using the laptop by itself. However if you attach it to an external monitor and closes the lid that is when the speed drop down by a factor of 5-6.2. For some reason when an external keyboard and mouse are attached to the USB ports the download and upload internet speeds also drop. This effect though is minor.So if one wants to use the laptop with an external monitor just make sure that the lid remains in the upright position.

Over the weekend, I purchased a Microsoft Bluetooth mouse and keyboard for my Inspiron 3847 PC, which is running Windows 10. While they both work great (and the keyboard has an amazing feel, BTW), I can't get either to wake the computer from sleep.
I've looked at solutions on the web and found nothing yet. Does anyone have any idea how to wake up a PC using a Bluetooth mouse and keyboard?

Answer:Inspiron 3847 won't wake with Microsoft Bluetooth Arc Touch Mouse and Surface Keyboard

Do they connect directly to a BT card in the PC or do they use a BT>USB dongle?
Have you tried this?
Look in Device Manager for Human Interface Devices and expand the list. Double-click each HID entry and click its Power Management tab (note: not all HID entries have this tab). Uncheck the box "Allow PC to turn off..."  Reboot when all are done and see if that helps.

I have an HP Envy M7-J120DX-17.3" laptop running Windows 8.1. I've had this machine for about 8 months now and have loved it.
 
Over the last while now I've had an issue where I suddenly lose control of the mouse - the cursor starts jumping all over opening random things. I get the grey circles as when one touches the screen except they're popping up all over the place. I'll immediately shut everything down. When I reboot it doesn't show itself right off but eventually it returns.
 
I've attached a couple of images of the laptop screen so you could see what I'm dealing with - I've circled in red the "touches" that I could catch with my camera. The shots are of my desktop screen - the "touches" bounce around like fireworks going off but don't hit anything as they're more concentrated in the middle of the screen. If my Windows 8.1 screen was up, everyone of those "touches" that happened to hit a tile would open it. When on the internet it's a nightmare because bookmarks, links etc all can randomly be touched and opened. I had to drag the virus scan shown off to the side so it wouldn't get messed up during it's run.
 
I've had a lot of help from NASDAQ over in the Malware Log forums and we've run a bunch of scans but to no avail (the link is attached below):

Answer:Touch Screen / Mouse out of Control

Hi Krooz,
 
I'm not an expert on this, but it seems similar to a problem that I've had with my Surface Pro 3.  If you live in a humid area, use evaporative cooling (swamp coolers), or accidentally leave the laptop in the bathroom while taking a hot shower,  moisture can get between the LCD and Digitizer assembly and create these "ghost touches" you are experiencing.  As you have mentioned the touches appear to be concentrated in the center line.  This could also be cause if you carry the laptop around by hand (like a book) and the pressure and friction (and sometimes sweat) from your arm can affect the screen.  
 
The way I have dealt with this before was to fold a large towel several times and place on a flat surface,  Prop the laptop with the back of the lid flat on the towels.  Take a hairdryer and carefully heat the screen to soften the adhesive between the screen and digitizer.  Then take a clean dry folded hand towel and with firm, but GENTLE pressure wipe from the middle of the screen outward.  Much like removing air bubbles from under a sticker.  Depending on how much moisture is trapped in the screen this may not work.  If this does not fix the issue, you could always go into Human Interface Devices in Device Manager and disable the HID-compliant touch screen, and just use it as a standard laptop.

Machine 3460-AQG; Win8 64bit 8 GB; Intel Centrino WiFi. ok, only two USB, one of which is usually occupied by the USB Dock.  So, I buy two Lenovo ThinkPad Bluetooth Laser mice to work without occupying a USB port for a mouse receiver. One for my X1; one for a Dell Inspiron XPS14, Win8- 64bit  btw., came in with same shipment.  Lenovo X1:  Original Thinkpad Bluetooth Laser Mouse randomly switches off and looses connection every 15 seconds or so. Workaround:  Disable the "switch off for  batterypower saving" in the Bluetooth device in Win8 device properties.  Subsequently, Bluetooth wears on battery runtime. After 30 minutes of searching, finally mouse works. Dell Inspiron:  ThinkPad mouse works like a charm, no tweak required, Dell saves energy for battery runtime.  Dell XPS14 machine cost a bit more than third (!!) of my Lenovo machine. Gerd  

Answer:X1 Carbon Touch does not work with Lenovo Thinkpad Bluetooth Laser mouse

Hi, Gerd
 
Have you ensured that all your drivers are up to date, as well as your BIOS?  All updates for your system can be found here, if you would like to check. And for clarification, what do you exactly mean by "after 30 minutes of searching, finally mouse works?" Do you mean that the computer has to spend 30 minutes to find the mouse before it will connect?
 
Best,
Adam

My husbands ASUS touch screen laptop-keyboards are not working. I know it has windows 8. Core i3 intel inside. Like I said it is a touchscreen and neither the hardware keyboard or touch screen keyboard will do any thing (well it is like the computer understands i am doing something with the keyboard, but not typing. Ex. i will type and the curser line will do nothing but suddenly go like an italicized line. The mouse works and the touch screen works but I cannot type anything. I have wiggled the keys thinking maybe something is stuck but no help. also I have restored it to its factory settings thinking maybe he accidentally set some keyboard sleep command or something. We are both not smart at this, and again it is not my computer, he has it for work, so who knows what he did to it. But yeah, after restore it still wouldn't work and now I am stuck at the registration "getting started" windows and I cannot bypass them....or don't know how to without being about to type. The last it worked he said he cleaned it with pressurized air, so I don't know if that was too much for the keys...if he actually blew dirt into it, or what strange thing could have happened...but the fact that both touch screen and actual keyboard aren't working I am left stumped. I hope I gave enough information on the computer. It has that surface windows...he normally just uses the desk top mode. Ok thank you for any advice.
