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.)

This button is in both a stupid location and stupid design. 
 
Why would you put a capacitive sesnsing button on the benzel of the screen where people constantly have to touch with their wrist or forearm when using it in tablet mode?
 
Seriously Lenovo? Even the stupidest people know not to put capacitive buttons near areas where there might be a lot of skin contact.
 
If Lenovo made guns, they would remove triggers and replace it with capacitive buttons so that people can fire guns accidentally.
 
Now I have put a sticker over it for the time being to avoid pressing it by accident. 
 
Is there for me to disable the button in Windows 7 or through regedit?

Hey guys,

I have an ASUS t300la currently running windows 8.1.

I have a recurring problem with my Capacitive windows logo button, on the bottom of the bezel (not the keyboard or on the screen).

The problem is that it intermittently stops working. No haptic feedback and no response. Sometimes it will start working again if I restart the computer. Additionally, i can press the button during startup and the haptic feedback will occur as much as i press the button (no function though, obviously).

sometimes, even if i restart, it will not work. However if this ends up happening, it would still always give the haptic response during startup, and then would stop working when the log on screen appears.

I have done a lot of research but to no solution

My windows is fully updated as of 9/29/14, and my drivers SAY they are all updated (although i do not always trust the automatic search for driver updates).

since this is very intermittent, i believe it must be software related, so forgive me if you believe this is posted in the wrong section.

Any thoughts or suggestions?? As i have said, i have done lots of searching and tried many options..but i have still not found a problem similar to mine.
PS. I get a consistent Event ID number which I feel may be related. However, sadly, I have not been able to find much info on that either.
The Event ID is #264 and states that "A multi-touch device reported inconsistent contact information."

I am not certain it is related,... Read more

Answer:How to disable physical start button on X1 Yoga be...

I have had the same problem when it comes to enabling the task bar icons while writing. What i do in this instance is activate an app that will invoke the on screen keyboard. Then, slide the top of it down over the task bar. Essentially this makes it so that nothing can be enabled. Unless of course, the on screen keyboard gets moved. I do have to ask this off topic question. Are you left handed? I ask because I have never invoked the start button with my right hand. As my hand does not move in such a way to invoke it. But, I can see how a left handed user could. Like I said, just an off topic question.  Edit: I just found this. I have not tried it yet.  http://www.startkiller.com There are plenty more search results on this subject.

Hi All,
I am using the phone for past 10 months and updated my lumia 720 to cyan from black 2 weeks back with windows 8.1 update. After 3-4 days the capacitive touch buttons start to work automatically and only way to stop it is lock the phone. It only happens at random point and dont know how to bring it up again.
I walked into Nokia Care twice where the phone worked without any hitch and I tried as much as I can to bring it up in front of them, but I couldn't. They ran the full test in system and said the phone is alright and I can continue using it.
But as soon as I reached home it started again and went next time, again phone was behaving properly and they gave it back. Today it started in the morning itself. Any idea what triggers it and how to bring it up to show Nokia Care.
Thanks & Regards,
Sundar.

Recently I found out that my lenovo yoga 710-15ikb laptop doesnt support digitizer active pen technology. Its hidden in online talks and also frustration when you buy a $70 wacom bamboo ink pen to find that it doesnt work. I understand that most active pens wont work with my computer because the screen (and maybe motherboard) dont have a digitizer. However, I have been looking online and some retailers appear to be selling digitizer lcd screens for my specific model. My question is whether or not these retailers are selling aftermarket screens and if they are will the digitizer work once one is installed? Also, I have a lot of experience doing repair work, mainly with digital cameras and building my desktop, so the task of replacing my laptops screen is not a problem Im just unsure as to whether or not buying a new digitizer lcd screen will work. I dont want to spend money that I dont have to if it turns out that I am just being misled.

Thanks!

Let me know if you need more clarification I'll be around for a while.

    I just purchased a Thinkpad Yoga 14 (which was just released today), and I have to say, I am rather disappointed. After finding out there is no active digitizer, I thought I would be able to just use a capacitive stylus to take notes (the type of stylus with a rubber tip at the end). Well, turns out that it is terrible when it comes to detecting input from a capacitive stylus (trust me, I've tried them all). The main issue that I am running into with the capacitive stylus is when it comes to writing, where the screen doesn't recognize the stylus for a split second and will actually seem like it is skipping. Here is a picture to try and show what I am talking about. http://imgur.com/JlWSoUh.jpg     Another issue I just ran into is I am having a very hard time trying to wake it from sleep, where I try to open up the screen but all it is displaying is black. I usually have to close the laptop, wait for a minute or so, then open it up again. Very annoying.     There is also noticeable lag when scrolling using 2 finger scrolling. It's nothing compared to the Macbook lineup, where touchpad scrolling seems to be flawless.

Hello, everyone! Long-time lurker, first-time poster.Can anyone recommend a non-Lenovo screen protector for the Yoga 13 that does not reduce capacitance sensitivity? Unfortunately the official protector interferes enough that none of the styluses I've tried work reliably-- lots of skipping and unregistered contacts.I tried using my preferred stylus, a GoSmart Series 200, after removing the official protector, and subsequently scratched my screen. It's definitely not Gorilla Glass! Feels like the top surface might be plastic, actually...

This is my first time posting; i was wondering if anyone would help me with my problem. I have a lenovo 3 2in1 14inch yoga series laptop and i have been very pleased with it up until now. Recently I have not been able to power it on with the power button. I think about 6 months ago, while in it's case I accidently bumped the side of it onto a desk, and every since it became increasingly more difficult to turn it on - I've had to apply more and more pressure to turn the  system on. I also noticed it had been more indented and pliable than originally but I gave no importance to it since I could still turn it on. This brings me to about a week ago when I could no longer to turn it on at all no matter how hard i tried. I wonder, short of short of getting another computer and since I have an an expired warranty, if I can find an easier solution to this problem. All possible solutions appreciated. Thank you!

Opened up the case housing the motherboard to get at the power to see if I could jimmy it a little bit because I couldn't turn it on. A while ago I accidentally bumped the 1yr old notebook in its case against the desk and since then was having difficulty turn it on needing a little more effort since the time I bought it. About a 3 weeks ago it wouldn't turn on no matter how hard I tried. When I posted a question on how to deal with the first answer was to open the casing to see if I could get at the button easier. I did that, after getting the smallest phillips screwdriver but wasn't able to get the button to work. It is somehow loose and not connecting. I also noticed that unscrewing the housing unit holding the motherboard might make it easier but I have not expertise in this and I don't want to mess things up. I wonder if anyone could get a help with this ,maybe a schematic showing me the parts of the housing unit so that I can unscrew it safely and not messing everything up or any other solution - short of taking it to a specialist. Any help very much appreciated. Thanks!

Hello guys, I own a Lenovo Yoga 2 11" for two years and I hadn't met a problem with it since then. The last time I used my laptop (3 days ago) I started it with the power button normally and everything worked fine. But today, I tried to start it clicking the power button but it didn't work, tried many times and nothing. Then I clicked the Novo button and it started with the boot menu. The options "Starts Normally", "Boot Menu", "System Recovery" and etc showed up. So, I turned off my laptop and tried to turn it on again with the power button many times, but all of them failed and now it only starts with the Novo button. I would like to know if it is a confuguration problem or its a fisical problem (my power button just gone), or if Lenovo or Microsoft had dropped a update that change it or something else?. Thank you guys.

I have the Yoga 900, similar product. I have no issue like that. Since the touchscreen, keyboard, and start button all have issues, it seems like it could be a virus or malware to me. Run a Windows Defender test and a Lenovo Solutions Center test to see if that helps.

Answer:Lenovo Flex 3 - Problem with capacitive pen use.

Hi Space,
 
Welcome to the Lenovo community!
 
Usually the pens that work with capacitive screens have a soft rubber tip or what looks like a smooth metal mesh tip. They mimic the use of a finger on the screen, but with a bit more fine control. Machines with active digitizers, on the other hand, work by completely different mechanics and offer very fine control. Hence you try with different stylus to confirm which is defective.
 
Let us know how you get on.

Hi, all! I'm back with another question regarding my laptop and the bar exam! I had brought the specs with me in purchasing the laptop, but apparently the Best Buy guy didn't care are the convertible note. The software for the exam (ExamSoft by SofTest) does not support convertible tablet devices (other than Surface Pro). I called to check if they considered my Lenovo Yoga 3 14 a convertible device (which seemed to be pretty much all at the store that met the other requirements) and was told that they do but the only issue is if the keyboard gets disconnected, since to fix it they take you out of the exam (and some let you back in, others don't). So my question is: has anyone ever had experience with the kayboard not working in laptop mode? Further, it seems that there may be a way to disable the automatic shutoff of the keyboard (when the laptop thinks you are in tablet mode) - can someone explain how to do this for me? I also want to shut off the touch screen for the exam, just in case any ghost touch issues arise. (I had ghost touch issues on my first one and had to get it replaced under warranty, though they then charged me extra - but that's another story!) Thanks in advance - these forums are very helpful!

does anyone know if there's a way to make the touchpad left/right click hard buttons easier to click? my fingers hurt after using the touchpad for an hour













Solved!

Go to Solution.

Answer:Lenovo Yoga Touchpad Left/Right Click Hardware Button Sensitivity

I would suspect that the hard buttons of the touchpad cannot be changed as a mechanical attribute of the hardware. However, I might suggest that the hard buttons of the touchpad may not have to be used very often given the existence of touch alternatives. For example, I'm sure you use the left-click tap gesture often, but also a right-click gesture of simply tapping two fingers anywhere at once may be used instead of having to press the hard button from the bottom-left corner. Additionally, dragging may be accomplished with a double-tap and hold gesture on the touchpad. For instance, to move a window on the desktop, simply double-tap the window title bar but keep a finger down after the second tap. From there objects may be moved/dragged as if a physical button was held. So perhaps with the touch-only drag and right-click gestures you may rely less on use of the hard buttons, and save some strain on your fingers..?

Hello everyone Got my Yoga 13 back in mid December, and so far I have been really happy with it.However, just recently I noticed a critical problem; When the lid is closed, and the power button is pressed, the laptop wakes itself up. Actually once mine woke up when I might have accidentally pressed the power button when placing it inside the sleeve bag. It stayed in my bag for a good 2 hours and heated the hell out of everything (85 Celsius!!), even some color off of the sleeve burned into the side of the yoga (not too noticeable, didn't really care about it). It survived however, no internal damages or performance reduction as I have thoroughly tested everything. So is this suppose to happen? My brother has a Sony VAIO which is close to 3 years old and has Windows 7 on it, and it also has the power button on the outside inside the round hinges. When I press the power button while lid is closed, it doesn't wake up. How come the Yoga wakes up when the power button is pressed during lid closed? Or do I just have a bad unit? Thank you.

Answer:Lenovo Ideapad Yoga 13 - Wakes up when lid is closed when power button is pressed

Last year I had the laptop sent to Lenovo to replace my screen because my brightness would not change. Since then, the wifi adapter would "disappear*" randomly, though not often, sand I would have to reinstall the intel WLAN drivers to fix it. I though it wasn't going to be a problem. However, in the past two days, the wifi driver would disappear every time I turn on the laptop. Reinstallation did not bring it back and repairs did not work. I had to resort to using an external wireless adapter.The volume down button seems to be stuck down, not physically but more like it was "stickied".*disappear- the drivers would be missing, not disabled. Device manager does not show a wifi adapter existing.

When scrolling with the index finger on my right hand I will regularly hover over and lightly touch the left button with my left index finger in anticipation of the link/button/text box etc that I am about to click on. I have always done this an never encoutered any issues on the numerous laptops I have owned and used in the past). When I do this on my newly axquired Lenovo Yoga 900 it causes the mouse pointer to lag momentarily. I have updated drivers (v19.0.17.57), I have turned off ALL Multi-Finger options (2-finger, 3-finger and 4-finger) and reduced Palm Tracking to the minimum. Is this behavior isolated to me, or are other experiencing the same behavior? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi. My girfriend got herself Y700-17. I installed Win 7 64bit on this laptop and it's working almost ok. The only problem is that the cpu (i5-6300hq) frequency is stuck at 2.2 ghz (cpuz shows it varies between 2193, 2194 and 2195 ghz). It will never go down or up to 3.2ghz like it should (or even 2.3, it's nominal frequency). It's frustrating because it makes the system fans run audibly loud even when not necessary, and the cpu is not reaching it's full potential. I read other similar  topic and saw that everything was normal under windows 10 so I'm gonna install it and try, but I'd really like to avoid having to use that system. Does all the skylakes behave like this under windows 7?

Answer:Lenovo Y700 - stuck @ 2.2 GHZ on Windows 7

Why 7, wasn't meant to be! Win 8.1 and all would be well as well as much faster.

So I'll be getting my Y700 soon! Can't wait! The model I got has a 5400RPM 1TB HDD, so I intend to buy an M.2 SSD in a few weeks in order to get better performance out of the OS. Now, here's the issue. Since I'll be getting the laptop well before I get the SSD, will I be able to go ahead and start 'setting up camp' on the HDD, and then simply move the OS to the SSD later? Since the SSD is SIGNIFICANTLY smaller than the hard drive, I'm wondering if it would be possible to transfer JUST  Windows 10. I don't want to have to wait to start truly using the laptop just because I wasn't able to order the SSD along with it.  Thanks for reading!

how to install windows 7 on this.  Here's what i've done: I've used both the Windows 7 DVD and i created a bootable USB wiith it (UEFI Boot).  They work. I disabled the  security in the bios, so i could work with UEFI, but when i boot the machine with either, the windows 7 loading screen happens, then it freezes on the Starting Windows animated logo.  I can get no further. When i set the bios to boot in legacy mode it gets past that part, but then asks me for a driver.   I've downloaded all of the windows 7 64 bit drivers on the Y700-15ISK driver page, but none of them seem to be the driver that windows is looking for. Right now i'm a little at the end of my rope on this.  Any help would be appreciated.

I am using an HP laptop with Windows 8.

My problem: I am looking for a way to disable the wifi (airplane mode) button. I am NOT looking for a way to disable wifi or airplane mode, but the actual button that controls airplane mode.

Why?: I never use the airplane mode button (because it is useless), and because Windows thinks its funny to make me go to Charms/Settings/Change PC Settings in order to simply re-enable my wifi after accidentally hitting the airplane mode button (why do they? Who knows.). The reason I keep accidentally hitting the airplane mode button is because I use a mousepad on top of my keyboard while playing games (which frequently hits the airplane mode button). If I cannot find out how to disable the button, then I will simply rip the physical key out of my keyboard (since Windows can't find a better way to solve MINOR issues like these) as a means to stop accidentally hitting the key.

How can I simply disable the button's use?

Thank you,

-Miles
 

Answer:How to disable airplane mode *button* in Windows 8?

The only Airplane buttons in Windows 8 that I have found are the one in Settings and the one you get to via the Network icon in the Notification Area. Are you talking about the latter one? Theoretically that is a toggle that will then turn Airplane Mode back off (i.e., turn the Wi-Fi back on).

On my Lenovo I can also toggle it via the Fn + F5 key combination, but of course that is not part of Windows.

Hi there,

I have a simple, generic keyboard that has Power / Sleep / Wake Up buttons right above Print Screen / Scroll Lock / Pause.

I want to disable them because I always shut down my computer accidentally and lose all my work.

All solutions I found are for windows 7 and are about tweaking in the Control Panel\Hardware and Sound\Power Options\Edit Plan Settings, where I can edit Advanced Power Settings.

However, that's the wrong thing to do because the "Power button and lid" section is not only for keyboard, it disables the computer case buttons as well which I normally use to shut down the PC.

Answer:How to disable keyboard's Power button in Windows 10?

Windows can only define what happens when a power/sleep 'button' signal is sent to it. It does not have separate settings for every such button you might attach. Same way that button 'A' produces the same result whatever keyboard you attach, even if you have two connected at once. You need to change the signal the key sends, usually done in the keyboard's control software/driver settings. If your keyboard has no such software (very poor, considering they went and put a power key on it), then perhaps you can find a 3rd party keyboard remapping utility somewhere? Failing that, you need to open up your keyboard and remove the offending keys physically. You would not be the first person to have resorted to that plan B.

Answer:Lenovo Y700 Very slow and stuttering with Youtube and Windows Media Player

Hi takotakumi,  There are 2 posibile reason for the issue. 1st is software and the 2nd is hardware. Lets try to check both. For software try loading the system in safe mode, to check if there was any 3rd party software was causing the issue. If it is software issue, try and isolate the software causing the issue by un-installing the software.  For hardware try running Lenovo Solution Center or Lenovo Companion for hardware diagnostic back in windows normal mode. If you find any hardware issue after the diagnostic test then better to call Lenovo Warranty Support for assistance. You can get in-touch with Lenovo by clicking on the Contact Us link at the bottom of the page under Support. Also try updating the drivers for the video card of the system.Hope to hear from you soon. Cheers,

It brings up the start menu while I'm working and when I carry it around in my backpack or even set it down on the table with the lid closed, it keeps vibrating due to the haptic feedback from the button. Is there a way to disable the button, vibration, or both? I went through the device manager and couldn't seem to find anything to disable. EDIT: Forgot to mention I'm on windows 10.

In Spontaneous restarts, perhaps seemingly caused by power switch? Help! I describe a bothersome situation where, as of now, it appears that my PC is rebooting itself once in the morning upon being woken from sleep and logged into, then behaves fine after that (so overheating, hardware failure, etc., are not the likely causes).

In Random reboot someone experiencing a similar problem a couple years ago says "I've set Windows 7 to do nothing when the button is pressed" as the way the user solved his random restarts, and I'd like to try that myself.

I know if I were a "real man" I'd open the case, find the restart button, and unplug it.

But I'm not. I'm a wimp who hates moving his case, unplugging things, and opening the case, if it can be avoided.

Is there really a setting in Windows or in the BIOS that would disable the signal from the reset button? My case does have separate buttons for power and for restart.

Answer:How to Windows-disable the front-panel restart button?

If it is the reset button you are trying to disable, it cannot be done from Windows.

It is a hardware reset directly to the circuits on the motherboard.

My Lenovo Y700 has been suffering from an issue since October of 2016, one which I imagine many people on this forum (or at least those of you who have also purchased this laptop model) are aware of. The issue itself wouldn't bother me, if it wasn't for Lenovo's gross negligence and seeming apathy towards customers with the issue. Here is the story behind my infuriation:I bought the Lenovo Y700-15ACZ laptop back in February from my local Best Buy, at the cost of nearly 900USD (including tax), to replace my old Dell laptop, and up until late October I was relatively satisfied with the purchase. Then Windows sent out their latest updates for the AMD graphics driver. At this time, I had no idea what was going on, so I brought the laptop to Geek Squad, at the same Best Buy from which I bought the computer. They explained to me that the issue was caused by an incompatibility between the built-in motherboard graphics card and the AMD video card, a result of the most recent graphics update at the time. So, I had them roll back the computer to before the update in question was released, and disable all automatic updates. It's a good temporary solution, but as many of us probably know, disabling updates means that security updates, as well as graphics updates, will not install, thus putting my computer at an increased risk of malware infection. So, after three months of leaving my Lenovo update-less, I decided that I've tempted fate long enough, and called Geek Squad to arrange an app... Read more

Here is the situation lumia 520 windows 8.1:
1. I turned on the narrator from ease of access
2. I forgot to turn off the narrator and my phone was locked.
3. I wanted to turn off the narrator by pressing volume up + start button, but then I realized that my volume up button is not working.
4. I could not do any operations with the narrator on and my phone locked. Even it was not taking the password correctly.

Answer:Lumia 520 with windows 8.1. Disable narrator when volume up button is not working

I was in the similar situation and I had almost done the hard reset. But luckily I found below solution.
1. You have to unlock your phone any how.
2. When lock screen appears, double tap on the screen. It will ask you for password.
3. For entering password, press the number first and then double tap on it to input.
4. This should unlock your phone.
5. Now open the Cortana by double tapping search button.
6. Now speak "Open Ease of Access".
7. This should open your Ease of Access settings.
8. There you will find the option to disable narrator. Double click and you are done.
You have been saved from hard resetting the phone.
And never use the narrator feature on windows phone if volume up button is not working.
