Touch Interface on X230 Tablet no longer functioning

Question: Touch Interface on X230 Tablet no longer functioning

I had called technical support and was informed that they cannot help me, so I was to ask on the forums instead if I wanted any assistance. My ThinkPad has recently started having issue where, regardless of what program I am using, it will stop recognizing any touch interface via stylus or finger at all. Previously, attempting to update drivers, or install the driver pack again would allow this to function once again. However, this temporary fix seems to have stopped working entirely at this point. I am running Windows 7 Professional (a requirement for the software needed for my research) on a 64-bit operating system. Any help or advice is greatly appreciated.

Preferred Solution: Touch Interface on X230 Tablet no longer functioning

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.)

Touch screen, pen, and usb/bluetooth imputs work fine but the trackpad stops working several seconds after bootup/log in. I've removed and reinstalled the latest lenovo trackpad drivers which fixes the problem for several seconds and then the trackpad/touch pad stop working again. After every restart again they work for a few seconds and then stop. Are there any other possible sollutions? 

Answer:Lenovo X230 tablet Thinkpad/trackpad not functioning

welcome to the community!
 
please check to make sure your trackpad is not disabled in your bios.
 
for reference, on my t60p, i have the trackpad disabled in bios because i never use it ( trackpoint evangelist here ). regardless, when i'm at the windows 7 login screen, my trackpad is active. as soon as i'm logged in and i've got a windows desktop, the trackpad is inactive. i'm not sure why i have that small window where it works, but there it is, fwiw.
 
cheers.

When I start up my system, all appears to work OK.  Then, at some point both the pen and touch stop working.  When I turn the screen into laptop mode, I find that the mouse pointer and buttons work normally.  The only way to get the pen and touch to work again is to restart the computer. I ran the system update and all the drivers are up to date.  I also tried deleting all the input and screen drivers, and did a reinstall, but that didn't change anything. I'm wondering if it may be a BIOS issue, since I saw a posting that suggested that, but it was not for the x230. This is really driving me nuts...I'm out of ideas.

Same problem here. The Sierra MC8355 WWAN card is recognized and using the generic Windows 10 driver but all the time I am getting the message "account not activated" though a valid SIM card has been inserted.
 
Anybody got ideas about this one?
 
Very annoying as WWAN is essential to my work.
Thanks in advance.

When I purchased my tablet from Lenovo, I understood it had both touch and pressure screen functionality. It does not.
 
When I rotate the screen and fold it down the stylus pen doesn't work. Nor does the screen function as a touch screen. 
 
System Information:

I am running Windows 7.0 Professional, 64 bit.
 
Please advise as to how to make the pen (pressure) and touch  functionality available.
 
All assistance is very much appreciated

I had to re-install winxp on my x41 tablet. I had no recovery partition and the recovery CDs did not work, so I had to install a fresh Win XP Pro.The touch screen no longer works, i.e. the digitizer pen no longer works. I spent hours downloading drivers and software from lenovo support centre but nothing worked. I have one device in hardware manager that is not working, it is an "Unknown Device" described as "on Intel(R) 82801FBM LPC Interface Controller - 2641". I cannot seem to find a driver for it. I installed ThinkVantage system update software, which installed and updated all critical and recommended updates in addition to some of the optional stuff that seemed remotely relevant. Any help would be much appreciated.

I have updated all of my drivers from the Lenovo Yoga 13" site.  I read on here to pay special attention to the Synaptics driver, mine is 16.2.21.4 from Synaptics.  When I flip in to tablet mode my mouse moves around when I touch it.  Also the F6's "disable touchpad" doesnt work.  Its really annoying to not be able to use it as intended.  Anyone have a fix for this?

Answer:Yoga 13" - Touch Pad not disabled in tablet mode/F6 No longer works.

hi OmegaNine,
 
Sorry to hear what happened,
 
1. Can we Try this,
 Go to Control Panel / Programs and features/ uninstall a program
    Look for the Synaptics Software, Uninstall it there.
 
2. Go to Device Manager and look under "mice and game controllers" and make sure it does not say Synaptics there.
              If it Does Uninstall it as well and put a check on the box if it asked "delete driver software"
 
If the system did not asked you for a restart, Restart the system Manually.
 
Open Device Manager again and open the category Sensor
  like on this photo
     http://www.codeproject.com/KB/system/wiisensor/wiisensor11.png
Uninstall everything under Sensors but DO NOT put a check on the delete driver Software.
 
Restart
 
Download and install this driver
       Synaptics TouchPad Driver for 64-bit WindowsRestart after installation and Check if You still have the Issue.
 
Hope this helps
Cheers!!

Dear Lenovo support staff  / community, I just purchased a brand-new X200 and the pen / touch / tablet feature works out-of-the-box with its pre-installed Windows Vista 64-bit OS.  Because the applications I intend to use the Tablet with do not support Vista 64-bit (namely, Dragon Systems), I used the Windows XP Tablet Edition SP-2 Product Recovery Disc kit that came with the Lenovo tablet, and followed the conversion instructions included in the booklet down to the letter. However, when it converted the OS to Windows XP, the pen / touch functionality is completely gone, and I am unable to find any help online, or in Lenovo product support when called in. Installing the Multitouch drivers on the Lenovo support site for X200 drivers does not work, and installing the WACOM drivers does nothing either. I can confirm this is most likely a 100% repro case, as I have two brand new X200 Tablets and the same behavior is exhibited on both. Please advise.

My X220 tablet comes with pen and limited touch support with 2 touch points. I have no issues on windows 7 but on windows 8.1 it has changed to be working with only 1 touch point since some time that I don't remember exactly when. So that I can work with one finger only and 2-finger functions such as pinch to zoom are unavailable. My drivers are all uptodate. I think I should completely uninstall the related driver before reinstalling but don't know how to procede and couldn't find the solution. I tried uninstalling all HIDs through Device manager and one-by-one, specifically wacom device. when I uninstall it, I lose touch option completely. but reinstalling through Device Manager sounds like recovering exactly the previous faulty condition. Maybe there is a conflict with windows 8.1 like Microsoft Input Configuration Device which might be unlikely.  So is there any other way to have full wipe and clean reinstall of those touch screen drivers? I appreciate it if you put links to the drivers for me, if they are not available on Lenovo Support. Tell me if you had the same touch issue in Windows 8.1  and how you solved it. Thanks

My setup:
Windows 7 Home 64bit - quad CPU - 8GB ram - Available Virtual memory 14GB
NIC 1 Internet - trying to re-setup ICS
NIC 2 XBOX360

What happened recently:
Everything worked fine with ICS, however I wanted a router with wire + wireless connections so I could use the wii and DS wirelessly.
I installed a cysco linksys router (wrt300n) last week.
During the setup it said it needed to disable ICS so it could manage the connections.
Everything worked fine for the week I had this setup.
Due to lack of funds and an emergency hospital visit, I had to return the router to pay the bills.
So now I'm trying to reset up my network with ICS but I'm getting errors.

Problem:
when trying to share it says:
"When Internet connection sharing is enabled, your LAN adapter will set to use IP address 192.168.137.1"
In the past I've noticed that it sets to "192.168.0.1" so I thought this was odd, maybe not relevant but still seemed odd.

When I click "YES" to proceed with enabling ICS I get this error for Network Connections: "An error occurred while Internet Connection Sharing was being enabled. (null)"

Possible pertaining problems: windows logs, i get these two logs showing up.

What address is being assigned to the network card that is running to your router?
Also if you have a router, why not just plug your xbox into it directly?

I have just done a clean install of Windows 8 Enterprise on an X230, but the Tablet Input Panel does not show. The pen functions fine as a mouse, and this machine ran Windows 7 with no problems so I know there are no hardware issues. Is there any way to force the TIP to show or install the Tablet PC functionality if that is the problem?

Answer:X230 Tablet--no TIP under Windows 8

In the Windows METRO mode, the touch keyboard will automatically come out when the focus is in a text field. In the Windows desktop mode, one way to get the Touch keyboard is:Click the key combination: Windows + C to bring up the Charm.Click the Settings.Click Keyboard and select the Touch Keyboard. Unfortunately, it seems that it does not remember the selection so the next time you click on a text field, you have to go through the process again. I hope MS will change this. Even better is if the X230T is in a tablet mode (meaning the screen is lay flat and on top of keyboard, it will be smart enough to use Touch Keyboard by default. Edit: Another way to display the Touch Keyboard is to click the Touch Keyboard icon at the task bar.

Question: X230 Tablet newbie

Hi all,
 
I've recently bought a Lenovo X230 Tablet. Specificly a 3434-CTR.
 
Now, as far as I know, a X230 tablet should have a multitouch screen and pressure sensitive built in Wacom tablet.
 
I just got this machine and it has a pre-installed copy of Windows 7 64bit Professional on it so I would gather that it has all necesery drivers already installed.
 
Problem is, the touch screen simply doesn't work - it doesn't respond to my fingers at all. It does work with the stylus pen, though. But it doesn't support pressure sensitivity. I tried using a portable drawing program that has never failed to work with any pressure sensitive pen tablet but it simply didn't work.
 
I'm guessing that there are some drivers I should install, but I don't know what to look for.
 
Is it possible that a 3434-CTR doesn't have a multitouch screen nor a pressure sensitive pen tablet?

Is there a way to specify different actions for the pen buttons?  For example, when using one specific program, I'd like the side button to function as if it were the shift key instead of the right-click but then have it operate as the standard right-click when in Windows or other programs. Is this a native functionality or is there a third-party program available that could give me such options?

Answer:X230 Tablet Pen Options

aardvarky, This is an excellent question! I definitely understand your wants! Officially, it needs to be a setting inside the software you want to use the digitizer pen in. 
 
Examples:
 
With the new TBT2 there is a software called QuickSnip, insdie the QuickSnip settings you can change the digitizer pen button from right click to screen capture.
 
Inside OneNote you can change the settings of the Pen Buttons, here is a link to a X230T Digitizer Pen Input Youtube video that may have more clairification.
 
So, as Digitizer Pen Technology becomes more popular, I believe we will begin seeing more Applications and Software adding the technology to enhance their user customizations.

Hey there guys,So my computer has decided to no longer function properly, and I believe it to be a hardware failure but I would like a second opinion before I try to deal with the manufacturers. So today my computer crashed for no reason, and I had to re install my operating system which is Windows 8. However, my SSD hard drive was no longer showing up in my bios menu and when I went to install windows, I could only put it on my 1TB hard drive that I was using a secondary. MY SSD is 256 GB and is a SeagateSo I installed it there and still, no sign of my SSD. So I am assuming my SSD has failed. However, when I try to re install my motherboard drivers, the computer breaks and is unable to start. The system will start to boot then give me an error message stating my computer has run into problems and needs to restart. The error message below displays so fast that it is impossible to read it. The computer just infinitely keeps restarting once I get to this point.  So what I am wondering is if this could be a duel hardware failure, or if my current hard drive is simply to old to handle the newer hardware of my custom made machine. I took it out of my old hp laptop that I had sense high school so I can't really say to much about what it is other then it's 1TB. The rest of my system specs are below.ASUS Rampage IV Gene LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel MotherboardRosewill Xtreme Series RX850-S-B 850W Continuous @40?C ,80 PLUS Certified, ATX12V v2.2...

Hi When you loaded windows onto the 1TB was the 256Gb ssd still connected ?If it was can you try booting with it disconnected ?If the computer boots then the SSD has failed and should be replaced under warrantee.When they do the ssd replacement they should test the rest of the computer as well.

Hi once again;

I recently downloaded WinAmp. I have only that to possibly blame for my current predicament. I just uninstalled it.

When I download something (anything) I used to get the little download box to appear in the upper left hand corner of my screen showing the download that just took place. Then I could right click on that download to show Open or Open File Location (which would be in the downloads file). But what I liked about it was that I could go right to that file location easily.

Now, whenever I make a download, the box still appears in the upper left corner but for a split second you see a file going into the small downloads box and then quickly disappearing. In a flash. How do I get the file to show in that small downloads box again?

As I said, I suspect WinAmp but I can't prove it. In any case, this brings up another problem. WinAmp took over my Windows Media Player and made itself the Default Player. I discovered the download box problem when I tried to play a video download and it wanted to play on WinAmp-not WMP. I don't recall setting WinAmp up as my player-I may have and not realized it, however. Anyway I want WMP back as my default player. Prior to WinAmp, my download box was working fine as best I recall.

Is there some reinstall or configuration to get the download box working again?

I've been getting help on another thread in removing a virus or something of the sort. It seems that is totally gone but after running the last program advised, Winpfind3u, my computer is totally jacked. When it boots up it takes nearly 4 minutes at the "windows is starting..." screen then another 3 to load my desktop. I noticed once I got in that my gateway was disabled but "Network Connections" is totally empty where as there were 3 different options before. I had to enable it through System. So I have a connection and the virus seems to be gone but now I am unable to paste. Ctrl V doesn't work and the option is grayed out in the menus. Browsers and programs are not minimizing into the task bar, instead they just disappear and I'm only able to find them again if I alt/tab.

I decided I should probably reinstall but I can't move anything to my flash drive to back it all up!! I can't paste, I can't drag and drop and I can't use the "send to" option either. I haven't tried burning disks yet because I'm hoping maybe I won't need to reinstall after all.

Please help!

Hey guys, I'm new on this forum and I'm also new in using X230 tablet or any 2-in-1 laptop. This is my second ThinkPad but first convertible laptop. About problems. Shortly after I've got this ThinkPad I've installed Windows 10 because in my opinnion it works better and IS better than Win7. But after installation, I've encountered a few problems.First problem was no auto rotation - I could do that only by installing drivers for Tablet Buttons (it didn't bother me that much as next few problems).Second problem was not working Dolby Profile - anyone has suggestions why? I've read that eccp4.exe or something like that is not supported in Win10. The only thing with Dolby that did work was Dolby Digital Plus (and the equalizer there is horrible!).And third, and also MAIN problem was random screen touches. Did anyone encountered this kind of problem on yours X230 tablet? It happened only when I was fully in "tablet mode". Like for example I was doing some notes on classes and A LOT of times Action Center came up. With no touch from my side - I was only writing notes or not even touching the screen. Also normal touches appeared, not only Action Center sliding. Firstly I've got a little scared because it's used laptop bought on something like ebay. But my second thought was to go back to Win7 from recovery (which didn't work with F8, I've used SWM/WIM tutorial to fully recover system).And finally it seems that this problem doesn't occur on Win7.

Answer:X230 tablet - Windows 10 and 7 problems

i've been running windows 10 as a devoloper since before its's launch with very few issues.First make sure you download the drives from lenovo for winows 10 that till fix most of your issues.some things are just not compatable with the windows 10 OS look for replacements in the windwos store but your dolby does have a driver update. for some reason the thinkvantage software does not down load the drivers for you you'll have to do that on your own. Once you download all your drivers your X230T will run much more normaly. keep in mind however if you have the touch screen model it only supports 2 finger touch while winows 10 supports 10, it still works but many of the gestures don't you can chage your screen if your so inclined as far as i know there is no driver update. Good luck

Hello, I started a new post because this is a different Error. After I updated my x230t using the recommeneded updates from the website, my keyboard suddenly stopped working. I tried re-installing windows but the error remained. I eventually found the issue being that when I start up the PC, the Fn key is stuck as if its still pressed, even when its not (the key itself isnt stuck). To solve this, I went into Bios and swapped the Fn key with left Ctrl, and now whenever I boot up the PC I plug in an external keyboard and press left Ctrl, this "unsticks" the left Ctrl key (which is physically the Fn key after I swapped them)  and lets me use the computer normally. What could have caused it? is it unrelated to windows seeing as it happened after I clean installed? how do I go about fixing it? and can I contact an offical Lenovo support somewhere online?

Answer:x230 Tablet keyboard issue

I would just replace the keyboard.  This sort of problem is almost always a short in the keyboard.  Used ones are commonly available.  The T430, X230, T530, W530 all use the same keyboard

I recently purchased a X230 type 3434-CTO Tablet (the one with gorilla glass). The first night I had it it worked great and I was incredibly happy with my purchase. At the end of the night I began installing an update for windows and let it run overnight. The next day I encountered severe problems with the touch screen. Pen input will not function at all in tablet mode and intermitently in laptop mode. I began with restoring windows to before I updated, then reinstalled windows and all drivers ect. Nothing has worked so far. I brought it to the IT department at my school and they tried using older drivers ect, nothing has worked so far. I am increidbly frustrated, has anyone else encountered this  or a similar issue? Thank you for your time and thought

Answer:X230 Tablet input not working

welcome to the community. sorry you're having troubles.have you tried to recover the system to factory-delivered state via the on-disk recovery process? or did you make the factory recovery dvd set, which you could use with an external dvd drive? please post back more specifics about what condition your machine is in. ie, data and docs backed up, ready to have a new or factory install done, etc.

Realized I posted this in the wrong place and it really belongs here I decided to look around to make sure my computer was even able to run an external GPU and found I have hit a wall. I flashed my BIOS to the newest version (like 2.67 or something?) but my TOLUD is 3.5 GB (dfa00000). I thought the BIOS update was supposed to fix this? I only have 8GB of RAM so the 16GB problem shouldn't affect me either? Anyone know what might be wrong?When reading some forums I saw that people who updated their BIOS were able to fix their problem as long as they only had 8 gigs of ram, which is why im confused I still have DFA00000. Will it still work regaurdless of this? I thought the update was supposed to fix this.

I have a Thinkpad X230 Tablet.  The trackpoint and touchpad have stopped working.  This just happened today, after about six months of use.  When I boot the machine, I can move the mouse cursor for a few seconds, but then it stops.  I don't see any error messages.  The Ultranav panel in the mouse control panel applet shows the controls for both trackpoint and touchpad greyed out--they can't be clicked on, and the "enabled" boxes are not checked.  The device manager says that the device is working.  If I try to update the driver, I'm told it is up to date.  If I uninstall the driver and reboot, the trackball and touchpad work, but they seem to be using generic drivers--the ultranav panel does not show in the mouse applet.  I'm told to reboot to complete installation.  However, if I do that, I'm back to square one, with the ultranav not working.  I checked the boot configuration, and it shows both the trackpoint and touchpad as enabled.

If that doesn't work then I would assume it's a hardware problem.

My X230 Tablet laptop hangs after booting or reawakening from stand-by. It happens every single time. It lasts for about 2-3 minutes, during which the cursor can be moved but nothing responds. The hard-drive status indicator is constantly on. After 2 or 3 minutes the laptop becomes responsive again and the problem doesn't return until I reboot. Sometimes the problem occurs immediately after booting, sometimes a few minutes later. I've had the problem since I got the laptop.

Answer:X230 Tablet hangs after booting

It still happens after a diagnostic boot, with all services stopped.

Answer:x230 Tablet "Black Button"

I have not discovered a way revamp the Black Button without changing the registry, However, this may be a good alternative for you to create your own hard shortcuts in Windows 8:
 
Use the [Win-Logo]+[D] to see the Windows-8 desktop.
Right click on the Windows-8 desktop and select New, Shortcut.
Then in the called input box simply enter the appropriate shortcut text.
(found under the properties of the desired program)
Once a desktop shortcut is made, right click the shortcut, press properties and shortcut key replace none with the key or key combination you would like to use.
 
Then Pin the Desktop Shortcut to Start (Menu). To do this right click on the desktop shortcut and select "Pin to Start"
 
I also thought I would share the official Windows 8 shortcuts with you.

Answer:X230 tablet prospective buyer

1. the measurement you have is with the 3 cells battery fitted, it is not the measurement for the X230 with 6 cells battery fitted. The 6 cells battery will add another 1 inch to the measurement of 9 inch. 2. Yes, you can zoom by pinch. The movement of page with one finger depends on type of pdf software you use. 3. Yes you can write on the screen whilst having a pdf doc opened on half of the screen. 4. Yes, you can with a digitiser pen in both the Excel and Word. http://www.flickr.com/photos/lead_org/10037681356/http://www.flickr.com/photos/lead_org/10037657335/

I used the X230 Thinkpad Tablet in tablet mode and when I went back to use it as a laptop, the touchpad no longer works.  I can use the keyboard and use the touchscreen but not the touchpad.  When I go into the control panel for Windows 7 and the mouse settings, the touchpad options to activate are not available. The touchpad mouse works before I log into the machine, but when my desktop shows and I try to use the various programs, the touchpad is not activated. How do I get the touchpad to work again?

Applies to being unplugged and plugged in. It's not due to have power consumption, usually just shuts off from within minutes of logging into my account. Safe mode seems to delay this problem for a while. Best way to go about fixing this? Malwarebytes doesnt detect any viruses.

Hello all,I have 230X tablet and I upgraded it to windows 8.Since the upgrade, I feel that the power manager shows wrong time remaining, and every time I try to configure something with the power manager dashboard it crushes as "not responding".I read that the battery should last for 7+ hours, but after a full charge it shows only 3+ I also installed the latest driver from Lenovo's website and it didn't help. Does it sounds familiar? Does anyone has a solution? Thanks! 

Answer:Power manager X230 Tablet

Hi, As far as I know, Lenovo has not supported Power Management for Windows 8 yet. What you said happends to me too. The time remaining is not accurate. Sometimes it drops from 25% to 10%, and the computer goes to sleeps after a few seconds... But after I reset my battery gauge, it solves the problem. By somehow, I discover that Power Management does work in Guest Account. You should perform Battery Gauge Reset in your Guest Account. Here is what I do: You should activate your Guest account (When you hit Windows key, type Accounts, Users accounts (in setting) -> Manage other Account -> Turn on GUEST account. You run battery reset there. (it takes long time since the computer will fully charge your battery and then completely discard and then chage again). Unfortunately, you cannot switch account during you perform battery reset and you cannot turn off computer during that time. It takes about ...12h to perform the task. But it works for me. The drawback of Guest account is you cannot connect to internet. I hope that LENOVO would support Power Management soon!. Too bad for a business laptop .

I have a Lenovo X200 Tablet that I am using as a remote control over TCP/IP for a piece of hardware. The software has been buggy on Vista so I updated to Windows 7 Pro hoping to resolve some issues with XP mode. After the install I noticed some features were missing (I don't remember what), so I downloaded the lenovo ThinkVantage software to update the system. Since then, the tablet feature (pen/stylus input) will not work. I have spent the better part of three days in lenovo forums trying suggested driver downloads from lenovo and wacom. It is a Penabled device but it does not have the MultiTouch option to my knowledge. I have used the recovery discs sent with the X200 hoping that it would restore the tablet functionality, but it did not. During system updates, the machine seems to be recognized as a tablet, because it downloads the MultiTouch driver: the Tablet PC input panel shows up, there are several options for Tablet functions in Control Panel. I have even tried swapping the tip on the stylus. PLEASE help if you can. I have spoken with lenovo and they will not help because (believe it or not) my waranty expired on 9/24...5 days ago. I am currently running Vista but want to try Windows 7 again. Thanks! Todd

Before complaining to Comcast, I thought maybe I'd check and see if I did something wrong. I live in a very large old house, and there is no way to re-wire stuff, so don't even suggest that. Believe me, if I could have done this right, I would have.

Upstairs, we have the cable modem going into a Linksys WRT-54g (i think). I shall call it "G." G has 3 computers wired to it non-stop, and a wire running downstairs into a D-Link DIR-655, which we shall call "N." Why do I have two routers in the first place? Wifi coverage. N only has one PC hooked into it, but usually has 2 computers logged into it wirelessly, and up to 3 more when we're at peak use.

I did not plug the wire going between G and N into the WAN port on either router. I did scour the N's settings looking for an access point only mode, but I could not find such a thing.

This setup worked fine for about 3 weeks.

Now, however, we get almost complete network failure every 3-4 days it seems. Sometimes, it stops and then starts working 2 minutes later. Sometimes I have to power toggle everything, and that has worked 100% of the time. The network failure does not cover streaming video, which happens a lot now that my mom and wife have found hulu. Based on that premise, it seems to me like a DNS issue. I also get disconnected from WoW, which used to never happen. Upon DC, I can reconnect without waiting at all which tells me basically nothing.

Laptop: Fujitsu Lifebook T4020D
OS: Windows XP Tablet Edition 2005 SP3
Device Manager shows ACPI-compliant devices enabled

Up until the last few weeks, I had been able to invoke Standby and Hibernate modes on my laptop. I ran into a display issue that I couldn't readily fix after my son borrowed my machine (need I say more?) but a call to Fujitsu took care of the problem. I realized a few days later that I had lost the Standby functionality and noticed that the Hibernate tab was missing from the Power dialog box and I could not choose Standby as an option in the Advanced tab. Investigation online indicated that I likely had lost the APM from my machine, but I can't imagine how that would have happened given what I had fixed. Just in case there was some latent issue with the video driver, I reinstalled the latest update but got the same result. I even went as far as running "sfc /scannow" from the Run command to verify that everything was okay, but still having the problem. I would appreciate any advice or suggestions, short of reformatting the HD.

intel core2 quad cpu [email protected]
8.00gb ram

keyboard:
came with comp along with the mouse. both are ps/2
model no. 5189
p/n 5188-6077

the original issue was that the extra media keys (email internet and so on) stopped functioning. the keyboard and mouse still functioned great though.
i re-installed the driver for the keyboard, i can be found here.but i i alsoin myrecovery program, ive tried both. it worked just fine. but after a week of use the keyboard suddenly stopped responding while i was typing. i restarted prominently and reinstalled the driver again. did not solve the problem. after several times of restating, troubleshooting from the hp website, the mouse now will cease functioning i the keyboard is plugged in at the same time. a restart without the keyboard plugged.

ive tried to look up the driver i installed but hell, the device manager is not showing it. yet programs and features shows the install as enhanced multimedia keyboard solutions. ive uninstalled it and reinstalled it countless times to no avail. i dont believe that the keyboard is broken, for one second after the comp is powered on he lights and keys light up. i dont have another comp to test it on though....

Hi everyone, Had some questions on some things. First: The computer was advertised with a backlit keyboard but didn't come with it. How would I add it?Second: The memory usage hovers around 2.2 - 2.5 (8gb ram) - this is much higher than my X61T it replaces. Any way to lower or is this normal?Third: I saw in this review: http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=1&cad=rja&ved=0CCIQFjAA&url=http%3A%2F%...there is an accelerometer which determines orientation - how do I turn this on? Fourth: A lot of this bloatware that lenovo never works properly - for instance when trying to change the % to how long is left, it doesnt work. Also, when trying to show the different power plans, doesnt seem to work as well.  Other than that the computer seems pretty awesome. Can't wait to get it up and running. 

Answer:Just got my new X230 Tablet, had some questions on how to work somethings.

1. The backlit keyboard is optional and not available on all models. Try pressing Fn+Spacebar to see if it turns on - once for Low, one more time for high and again to turn off.2. Is this for the same operating system? As far as i know X61T's shipped only with XP Tablet and Vista. Also, the X3100 graphics chip on the X61 uses up to 384MB of shared memory, whereas the new integrated graphics can take up a lot more. It might help to remove all the Lenovo bloatware you don't need.3. You need to make sure you have the Thinkvantage Active Protection installed. After that you can check in the control panel if it's working (Link to image), or download something like QCNLive that shows the accelerometer readings.4. Can't help you here, as i usually uninstall the stuff i don't need. Just stick to the battery info Windows provides.

Answer:What is the response time (in ms) of the screen on X230 Tablet?

It depends on overdrive level applied to the lcd panel. Typically it will be around 16 ms that can be improved to ~ 8ms by overdrive that also affects lifetime of the display. And no, there are no LCD panels with 2 ms response time, it is just marketing fluff (similar to PMPO audio power nonsense).

I have a X230 Tablet with the Outdoor display, meaning it requires the digitizer pen and does not work with fingers. The pen that came with the tablet is not pressure sensitive. If at all possible, I would love to get a pressure sensitive pen, but I can't find a list of compatibility anywhere. Apparently there aren't all that many of these tablets out there in the Wild. If anyone can help point me in the direction of a pressure sensitive pen for my tablet, I would be very grateful. (Or if one does not exist, let me know and I'll stop living in false hope!)

Hello,First, yes, I realize Windows 8 is not generally available yet, however, a solution may already exist considering the imminent release.I have a X230 Tablet with Windows 8 Enterprise. The 2 USB 3 ports are working, but only at USB 2 speeds (same transfer rates when hooking up a USB 3 device to either of those ports as I get hooking up to the AlwaysOn port on the other side (more or less 25 MB/sec).I never had Windows 7 on this tablet, so I don't have a comparison. However, on a X201 Tablet with a PCIExpress USB 3 add-in card I get transfer speeds of at least 100 MB/sec, which is about as close as you can get I think.Windows 8's (Microsoft's) USB 3 xHCI driver is installed (version 6.2.9200.16420).Are there better drivers available? Am I missing a setting somewhere (in the BIOS perhaps)?Thanks for any assistance,SA.

Answer:X230 Tablet USB 3 performs at USB 2 speeds (Windows 8)

I thought I already had checked the most obvious UEFI settings, but I guess not. In the USB category, there is a USB 3 option which was set to Auto. Based on the description, that looks like a good setting. However, I changed it to enabled, and now I have transferred rates of about 75 MB/sec. Still not as good as possible with some other controllers, but hopefully some better drivers are forthcoming.SA.

When I updated Windows 10 to the newest Version (Windows 10 Pro 64 Bit, Version 1607 Build 14393.82) the autorotate on my Thinkpad X230 Tablet is not working anymore. Using the rotate button the screen rotation changes but there is no screen change when putting the laptop into tablet mode or when rotating the laptop. With the "old" Windows 10 I had no problems with the autorotate function. I observe the following behaviour/errors:In the action center the button rotation lock is present, but doesn't change / unlock the rotation (it says it changes but the icon always stays on locked and there is no change).In the device manager the Intel(R) HD Graphics 4000 is listed under "unknown".Under "sensors" there were no entries.

I got my X230 Tablet recently and want to run it under Windows 8. After upgrading yesterday, the Touch Screen refuses to work: the position is always in the bottom right corner, but clicking is recognized. The effect is that all windows are closed and opened alternately when touching the screen. Quite annoying, in particular as in Windows 8 the Touch screen would be actually very useful. I updates all drivers and bios, as far as possible, but the Touch Screen behavior remained. Somebody suggested that a clean installation of Windows 8 does lead to a well working Touch Screen. I tried it once, but after about two hours of computer work, Windows came back with the message that the installation failed, and thus I stay with my non working Touch Screen. What do I have to do to get my Touch Screen working again?The Wacom Pen is fine, so I can live with the X230 for the time being, but working with my fingers on the screen would be actually nice - and it beats those iBooks by lengths. Who has ideas?

Answer:X230 Tablet Windows 8 Pen Handwriting software

Hi, hmandi01
 
In Windows 8, writing-to-text transcription is normally a "keyboard," if you will, that you have to select. When you are on the desktop of your machine, is there a keyboard icon on the taskbar? If this is not visible in laptop mode, then see if it is there in tablet mode. If that icon is visible, click on it. This should bring up the touch keyboard. On this keyboard, the bottom-right key should be another keyboard icon. Select this icon and then select the pen option (third option.) This should change the touch keyboard into a transcription keyboard.
 
Best of luck. Let me know how it goes.
Adam

Answer:Upgrading Video Card in X230 Tablet?

Pardon my ignorance up front if I am wrong, I have an x220 and have not studied the x230 in any depth, but I suspect this isn't even possible, even on the x230.  On the x220, and I suspect it's much the same for the x230, the video card is a part of the intel chipset (it basically leeches cpu and ram power from the normal system cpu/ram and is not a dedicated removable/upgradable mobile graphics device with it's own cpu/ram like a mobile GeForce or mobile Radeon card). Perhaps there are new inventions on the market that can do the trick, I haven't been keeping up, but when I checked for the x220 their wasn't a viable open slot in the system for putting in such a dedicated mobile card.  The only option was an 'external' hack that allows one to use a dedicated desktop GPU card for when they come home with their system and dock it up to an external monitor.  Looked like a bit of work to set-up but once it was set up and running, it would allow for using a powerful GPU for games and graphic apps etc., while at home/office at least. Would be nice if the newest line of these tablet laptops had room for mobile GPU's, it's about the only thing missing for my interests, however that said, the integrated internal graphics work quite well from my experience, for mild gaming with the settings turned down and for graphic editing (most top 2D and 3D applications work surprisingly well, but far from as good as they would work with dedicated gpu, good ...

I purchased a new X230 tablet in August 2013.  I'm running Windows 7 64 bit ultimate, Office 2010 Pro, and all updates, Microsoft and Lenovo have been applied.  I have, or at least I believe I have, shut off the option of the screen dimming or the machine sleeping in battery mode and while plugged in.  I've noticed this since I first purchased the unit but haven't used it in tablet mode enough to worry about searching out a solution until now. My problem is when put into tablet mode, typically running OneNote, but I've also seen it occur with just the default windows screen up, after a few minutes of inactivity, the screen goes black and I've not been able to wake it back up and am forced to perform a hard shut down. I sure hope there is an easy fix for this.

Hi all, This laptop is giving me nightmares at this point. I can't afford a new one at this moment so i come here for input. The issue I am having right now besides the known audio failure is with the power management, spedificaly the throttling that happens while it is on AC. To me, it seems that the Speedstep roles are reversed. It runs on full turbo speed, over 3ghz on battery but it clocks down to 1198mhz according to CPU-Z when it is plugged in. No combination of settings either in the BIOS, Power manager or the Windows power options have any effect, everything is at 100%. The battery is installed at all time and I have tried both 65 watt and 90 watt AC adapters which are both new. BIOS is updated and I have tried both Win 7 and 10, fully updated with a fresh install with newest drivers and programs and numerous BIOS resets with CMOS battery removed. I am suspecting the power jack at this moment but Power manager reports both AC adapters correctly. I appreciate any response if anybody else has faced this issue or anything like it.

Hi everyone:I am considering to upgrade my wireless adapter for my laptop. Currently I am using Thinkpad X230 Tablet with Intel Centrino Wireless N 2200. My laptop has bluetooth. I have questions:1. Does the bluetooth come with my wireless adapter? I mean that If I upgrade my wireless card, do I have to buy a card with wifi and bluetooth? 2. I am considering to upgrade to Intel 62205 AN. This is the linkhttp://www.superbiiz.com/detail.php?name=INT-62205&show=p Is that worth to upgrade? (functionality, price, ...)  Is the product compatible with my current Thinkpad X230T?  3. Can I install 2 cards and run silmultanerously . It sounds greedy but I know a software, named "connectify"; it allows laptop to connect many networks silmutanerously, for example: 4G, Lan, wifi.  4. I see some people mention about Intel Ultimate 6300. What additional functionalities do I get compared to 62205  or Intel 2200? Thank you. 

Answer:Upgrade Wireless Adapter for Thinkpad X230 Tablet

1. Bluetooth and wireless cards are separate on the ThinkPad X220, X220t, X230, and X230s. http://www.flickr.com/photos/lead_org/8276508687/in/set-721576320273504682. You would need an Intel 6205 card with Lenovo FRU number on it, generic one won't work. 2200 only operates in the 2.4 ghz bandwidth, while the 6205 can operate in both 2.4 and 5 ghz bandwidth. So the question is does your router have 5 ghz bandwidth and support MIMO?3. No you can't. The WWAN/mSATA slot would give an error message saying an unauthorized card is installed (1801 error). 4. 6300 card has 3 x 3 setup and operates in 2.4 ghz and 5 ghz range. Max speed of 450 mpbs6205 has 2 x 2 setup, 2.4/5 ghz range, and max speed of 300 mbps.2200 has 2 x 2 setup, but operates in the 2.4 ghz range and max speed of 300 mbps.

Answer:X230 Tablet and Ericsson H5321 wwan problem

Solution wasn't so simple... The Lenovo support changed a new Gobi 3000 wwan card. That was ok to the bios and laptop was running ok on windows 7. Everything worked well at least in Finland. So the Ericsson wwan card will not work current bios version. This is not mentioned on product catalog. The support changed this board without any costs. Windows 8 problems: Then I changed from win7 pro to win8 pro... Gobi 3000 drivers are not currently on Lenovo website, but you could find the drivers from other website. Drivers called LenovoGobi3kSetup.exe seem to be working ok on Windows 8. You'll find the link from the community to those drivers. ....but! It works until you rotate the display top of the keyboard. Then mobile broadband is disabled and there is no way to turn on this feature. Windows 8 troubleshoot says that the wwan switch is disabled and advices to enable the switch. But there is no any switch for wwan module!!! On windows 7 will work similary but you can switch wwan on when change the display rotation. Settinga are as well in FN+F5 button. But it will not work on windows 8 similary. It just disables all wifi actions. Solution for wwan switch enabling: Just install think vantage access for windows 7!

I have just completed a clean install of Windows 7 Ultimate and all went well except for the screen brightness issue. Anyone have any ideas where I can simply increase this as I have searched everywhere for screen brightness, even BIOS for any setting for display. I have latest update to display driver. I have two other laptops and each shows much brighter than this one and I am surely disappointed in this display. Not sure if it is because this screen is touch enabled and also works off keyboard that could be the issue and a separate setting could be involved on the touch side of the display as it does work with a stylus pen or touch also. thanks and   I hope I can get this brightness to increase somewhat as it is too hazy for me.

Hi, My Thinkpad X230 tablet screen is not truning on.  It just shows the dark blank screen.The power button is on, all other indicators are green.I have tried removing the battery, holding Fn button etc. Can someone help to resolve this issue please.. Thank You. 

Answer:Lenovo Thinkpad X230 Tablet - Display Problem

If it is under warranty, call for service, rather than dealing with it. The first step is to unplug it and remove the battery. Press the power button 5 times, holding it for 10 seconds on the last push. Put it back together; plug it in, and try again.
