X220t trackpad/touchpad

Question: X220t trackpad/touchpad

I have a Lenovo x220tablet, alltough it took some time to adjust. But now i'm happy with it. But there's something wrong with the trackpad. I allready taught myself to use it without the pysical buttons in the bottom, and now make fully use of al that synaptics has to offer.But sometimes I have to use the buttons, because it comes handy when dragging something or whatever. At first, I did not like the buttons, but the where usable, but with time, they got worse. It is very hard to explain this for me in English, but, thats why I made a little movie which is linked below. Anyone suggestions what to do about it?Of course I've used google, and found many many topics about the trackpad, but that were mostly driver problems. http://youtu.be/a4XyxWopbt8 The click is so loud, it seems to get stuck somewhere and I have to push very hard. Almost like there's something stuck, like sand between it. But it's perfectly clean.Any advise (besides; do not use it) is welcome. And apologies for my English

Answer: X220t trackpad/touchpad

Hi, timpel_800

From the looks, sounds, and general functionality of the TrackPad, I would guess that there is a hardware issue of sorts. In the video, you say that the click function works, but only if you do it twice, correct? And the noise was far louder than a TrackPad is supposed to be, I think. With all this in mind, I would contact support and see if you can get this repaired. The number for support in the Netherlands is +31 (0)20 513 3939 and is open Monday through Friday 9am-5pm.

Best of luck,
Adam

Recently I put a mSATA SSD into my laptop, after which I started to have problems with the keyboard and trackpad. Particularly, I cannot left click with the track pad or use the left-click button beneath the space bar (that is connected to the keyboard). After about 20 or so minutes post start up, other functions begin to disappear, such as the Enter key. Here's what I've done so far: 1) Ensured everything was dusted and connected properly (in regards to the two ribbons connecting the keyboard/palm rest)2) Tested with the OS on the SSD as well as the OS on the harddrive3) Tried safe mode4) Uninstalled and reinstalled drivers5) Tried without the SSD6) System restore on the HD7) Updated BIOS8) Replaced keyboard with new keyboard I'm out of ideas at this point. Any suggestions?

Hi there, I've had my X220 tablet for about 10 months and it has been great.  For the last month however, the touchpad and touchpoint have become flaky.  When rebooted or coming out of standby, the touchpoint/touchpad often did not work; after resetting a few times, i would work, but then stop working again when the system when into standby mode. I thought this was a driver issue, but uninstalling and reinstalling to the newest drivers did nothing.  I have also updated/reset the BIOS. I have more recently have not been able to get the touchpad working at all now and relying on just the touchscreen for input is very frustrating.  When Windows 8 CP came out this week, I decided to give the computer a fresh format and reinstall Windows --- maybe that would resolve the issue. No luck.  The touchpoint/touchpad did not work even in Windows 8. I read around a bit and have tried disabling JUST the touchpad in the BIOS, and amazingly, the touchpoint will work fine when I do that.  When I disable just the touchpoint or leaving both enabled, neither the touchpad or touchpoint will work. As far as I can tell from what I have been able to diagnose, the touchpad is damaged and is causing a conflict with the touchpoint when enabled.  I am not sure of this, but it is my belief now. Are there solutions out there for me?  I do have 2 months left on my warranty, but I hope to keep mailing my notebook in for support as a ...

Hi everyone! It seems this tablet is cursed... Ever since I received it, my touchpad had been imprecise and would stop working periodically for no good reason. I tried the various suggestions in this forum and others to improve things and spent countless hours trying to adjust the sensitivity and other settings to get it to work better. I tried all versions of the synaptics driver I could get my hands on (including vanilla versions from the synaptics website, but nothing seemed to fix it. A couple of weeks ago, I decided to do a fresh install of my tablet (hoping to fix this and other touchscreen-related imprecision). The result from this is that my touchpad went from very bad to completely unusable. It stops working at least 4 times a day. It's sluggish. It's unbelievably imprecise, almost as if the cursor moves to another icon on my desktop everytime I position it on the program I want to run and get ready to left click. I would like to know if anyone has ever been experiencing the same issues I am and if they have a clue on how to fix it. You're basically all that stands between my tablet and the window through which I may throw it soon  Thanks, -LP

Hi 1) I just bought the Y580 online. The trackpad is terrible. - How do I make the right-side and bottom touch scrolling to work ? just like a normal laptop ?? - I changed the sensitivity settings and inspite of that the motion of the cursor is not uniform. When the right side of my finger is contact with it, the cursor stops moving a little and it is okay with the center of my finger.Do any of you experience this? If not, I need to get this looked into. I don't think the problem is with the software, it's just the material with which the trackpad is made, does not have a right coefficient of friction. - The two finger scrolling does not start. When I do the two finger scroll, the cursor change is seen almost 10 seconds later and even after that, it is almost impossible to scroll through my pages. Is that the case for everyone?  - The left/right click on the trackpad is noisy 2) Made the mistake a buying a lower resolution screen.How do I return this thing? When I talked to sales they are asking for a 15% "restocking" fee. That is terrible as well. I never should have gone with Lenovo.  

Answer:Y580 Trackpad (or Touchpad) Help

- Not sure if there is a right side and bottom touch scrolling, will test it tonight- not uniform? Means if you place your finger on the right side of the touchpad then move to the center compared to the center move to the left, the distance is different?- 2 finger scrolling not tested, will check it tonight- I am not sure how to help you with the touchpad being noisy when clicking. Do note that this is a 1 piece touchpad compared to the conventional touchpad with 2 buttons below which is different. Use double tap on touchpad to do a left click but right click is unavoidable. - low res screen... can check with sales if you can top-up for upgrade?hope this helps.

Hello everyone,  I am having to send my Lenovo ThinkPad P50 to the service depot to have the touchpad and perhaps more replaced due to the trackpad not performing properly. The right click works intermittently both on the bottom and top right click button. The scroll feature at times stops working and the left click usually starts performing right click operations randomly. I knew it wasn't the driver after uninstalling and reinstalling it a few times including the keyboard driver. Has anyone here ever had to have their touchpad replaced?

Answer:Replacing Touchpad/Trackpad

Hi RegEdit1 , 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
As the touchpad and buttons may have erratic behavior but not when using a USB mouse, then best that you have your warranty coverage work for you as the entire upper case that includes the touchpad mechanism to be checked.
 
Reviewing the hardware disassembly guide would take several screws needed to be worked at for the repair.
Sending it over could be a good option in terms of hardware issue for full functionality check.
 
Regards

I dunno if it's a touchpad or a trackpad I have but there was a program along with it called like Apoint or something that would run and allowed me to change the settings on the touchpad. I have looked and can find no other way of accessing the touchpad settings. Well the last time I remember it working was before I updated Windows Vista, well now the program no longer runs I had it set to disable the touchpad when an external mouse was detected and it no longer does that. I went into its folder located at C:\Program Files\DellTpad\Apoint.exe and double clicked it and nothing happened. It use to run at startup but no longer does and I checked and it is still set to run at startup but does not, any clues as to what is going on? I believe I am using Windows Vista Home Premium.
I managed to fix it by going to Device Manager in the control panel uninstalling Dell Touchpad and rebooting.

Today my x201 has lost all trackpad and touch pad function.   Hard disk constantly running.   No restore points listed to help remove the problem.   Everything works okay in Safe Mode.   Rebooting several times has not helped. Could this be related to the Microsoft Bad KB.......69 update? I have not installed any new software recently. I can only use the pen to access menus.    How can I remove recent KB installations using just the pen? Hope someone can help me soon Update:   I have managed to remove the bad MS update but to improvement.   Next I added a new user (also set as administrator) and the trackpad and touch pad function is now working normally but only with the new user account. Would someone tell me if I can remove my own Administrator Account and what effect this will have,  i.e. what data might I lose?   Can I save data and reinstall it to a new account?

Answer:Trackpad and touchpad not working

Hi Beemer,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
I?m sorry to hear that trackpad and touchpad is not working properly in your Lenovo ThinkPad X201.
 
Since the devices work fine in safe mode, probably a corrupted driver is causing the issue. Go to control panel -> Device manager, uninstall the drivers listed under Mice and other pointing devices. Restart the system and let Windows install the generic drivers for the device. Check if the trackpad and touchpad works fine now. Later, you may download the drivers from Lenovo Support page and install them. If you have any difficulties in finding the driver, please share the MTM number of your device.

Dell,
Touchpad  replacing  Trackpad  in Laptops

Users of the laptops are feeling difficult to use the touchscreen facility in the recent laptops, because the screen is perpendicular to the hand and fingers. In most of the laptops, the trackpad and the area left and right of it are vacant.  This area can be used as touchpad replacing trackpad,  as shown in the following figures.  This new touchpad is parallel to the hand and so easy to write, scribble, select, swipe and do digital signatures.



 

The touchpad can be enabled to function as trackpad using special key combination(s).  Many app and program icons can be displayed on this touchpad similar to those in tablets and smartphones.  
Additional modifications can be included in this idea to make this feature very useful in laptops, desktops, All in one computers.
Reference:
 The Touch Bar on MacBook Pro.
This Touch Bar on MacBook Pro is very small, difficult to view and difficult to reach by fingers for digital signatures and other actions as mentioned in the following weblink.

 Hey guys, I'm having problems with the touchpad buttons: the system can't distinguish a left click from a right click. Whenever I click one of the two buttons the system reads it as if I'm clicking on both and keep pressing. I tried also to disable them and use the trackpad but also those buttons are not working well. They just work for a couple of minutes and then they stop. However if I run the Thinkvantage suite they seem to work fine and the system reads the click properly.What do you think is wrong?Thanks

Answer:Touchpad and Trackpad Buttons not Working

Today I noticed both my touchpad and joystick stopped working.  I could move the cursor but the clicks would not register.  I restarted and it worked again.  I recall a couple of days ago I updated the drivers, one of them I think was for the touchpad.

The Trackpad on this laptop is become really unusable. The cursor is jumping around when you lift your finger from the trackpad. I am finding it very difficult to use Photoshop and cannot do anything precise which is ironic as this is a precision touchpad. There is nothing precision about it.
Please Dell fix this. For me this is the only thing holding back the best Ultrabook ever made.

I just got this laptop today and immediately noticed the same exact thing.  It's driving me nuts and really creating problems navigating.  I am really hoping this can be fixed with a software update and it's not hardware related.  I'm also wondering if this is just a flaw on certain units or all of them act like this.

If I press any of the trackpad keys the cursor is unresponsive for ~2 seconds. The problems occurs a while after booting. If I restart the machine it doesn't happen. What should I do?

Answer:Trackpad keys freezing touchpad

I noticed exactly the same behaviour after upgrading the driver to version 15.3.2.0. Also when i use the trackpoint, the touchpad freezes 2 seconds..... Somehow the UltraNav driver always seems to give some kind of problems... :-( With the buttons it only happens with the red lined buttons above the touchpad. Not with the two buttons below it. --jan

Hi all,  Having puchased a X1 Carbon few days ago, I realised that my trackpad and touchpad are acting erractically when I use the mouse at the same time. I detected these erractic movements due to some accidental touching of the trackpad and touchpad.  For example; my trackpad cursor would display a vertical and horizontal scrolling icons when I move the trackpad and I could not scroll my document using my mouse and touchpad. The scrolling icons would disappear after a short while and I would no longer move the cursor with the trackpad. However, the trackpad and mouse are able to move the cursor. However, scrolling remain unresponsive. I restart the machine and all is fine again till I tried to control the cursor with the trackpad again. I tried to disable the trackpad and touchpad since I have a mouse connected but only the trackpad can be disable.  This is my first Thinkpad and I assume users will disable both the trackpad and touchpad with a connected mouse. I do not know if these problem exist out of the box since I connect the mouse to it on my 3rd day of usage and I found them due to the accidental touching of the trackpad last night. Further trial and error confirmed their erratic movements. I tried to re-install the drivers and navipoint but the issue remained.  Is my trackpad and mousepad having problem for these erratic movements and by default, both the trackpad and touchpad cannot be disabled in Thinkpad?

Hi Lenovo & all, I use the trackpoint most of the time, but recently after updating the drivers for a number of times from Lenovo update manager I found out that the touchpad on my T60 is not working right. Symptom is that whenever my T60 is tilted forward or backward (i.e. not sitting horizontally flat), then there will be great difficult trying to control the pointer with the touchpad (not responding, etc). Did somebody encounter similar problem?

Answer:Weird Touchpad / TrackPad problem on T60

I found that the problem can be due to the palm rest region being pressed down my my palm:If I press the palm region up on the edge (as it flex a little bit when I use force), then the touchpad works fine even when the laptop is tilted. However, when I stop pressing up on the edge, especially after I have put my palms onto the palm rest to type again, then the touchpad stop behaving normally again It is a design fault of T60, or is it just my T60? Can I have it fixed?

Guys I see hundreds of posts on this old and aggravating topic with totally guesswork "answers" from Microsoft, help forums, including this one. There has to be an answer, right?

BTW this seems common on all types of laptops irrespective of make. I have tried this with both the vendor [lenovo] driver and with standard MS provided "mouse" driver. No diff in this regard though the packages are very different [lenovo very complex]
Also, this is a new phenomenon on this particular unit. In the past, no issues. Windows power-plan update?

as title says. Use laptop. Leave laptop [plugged in or not does not matter]. Return to use laptop after hours. Laptop awakes by normal means but no touchpad/trackpad etc function. Logoff, logon, still no touchpad cursor movement [frozen in centered position].

There is no Power Plan setting for "mouse" or touchpad or trackpad.
There is no Advanced Tab in Device Manager for same
There is no sleep/power/etc settings anywhere in Device Manager for same
There is no Windows error related to the problem
Full reboot required to gain coherency

Something in Power Mgmt, I guess, is offing the touchpad but the parameter is not obvious.

Someone somewhere knows this answer, right??

Answer:Touchpad Trackpad inoperable after sleep

Other then the button to disable the trackpad being somehow accidentally pushed, A lot of the times this problem is reported, And I keep going through all the options. If you have done all the fixes, the problem is most likely with the touchpad itself on the laptop. It is usually a hardware issue. I would call the laptop company and go through their troubleshooting steps (even though forums usually cover all those angles well). But it is usually hardware if all the fixes that are suggested are applied.

The trackpad and touchpad of my Yoga stops working: the cursor freezes and after a while disappears from screen. Once the cursor is gone it does not appear again, even after a clean reboot. I have tried to enable it via the Control Panel Mouse settings or Input section of ?Lenovo Settings? application but had no success.
The problem has happened several times so far, always after the laptop sleeps due to inactivity. The only way I have found so far to bring the trackpad and touchpad back is by going to the BIOS settings and restoring the default configurations (I have never changed the BIOS settings on this PC, so I can?t figure out why this solves momentarily the problem).
 
Any ideas on why this problem is happening, and how to solve it without messing with the BIOS settings?
 
This is becoming really annoying, it has happened three times since yesterday (10/23/15).
 
My BIOS version when this first happened was 1.26 (GQET46WW), my current BIOS version is 1.27 (GQET47WW). My laptop runs Windows 10 Pro (automatically updated from the Windows 8.1 version delivered with the laptop).

Hello, I posted as a part of another thread before but decided to make my own thread for this. I have lost my lenovo partition and reinstalled windows 10 on a fresh install.  This has resulted in my trackpad being rendered unfunctional. I have tried all sorts of drivers to try and get it working but alas nothing has worked. I contacted the live support and they just told me to install the Lenovo companion and give that a go with the drivers from that, but it did nothing to help and ended up downloading the same drivers I tried before.   I have the same issues in Ubuntu also and there is no activity when it comes to the pad, the buttons dont work nor does the motion.  I have looked around on the internet and found next to no solutions for the problem I have.    On my device manager I have however one single unknown device, which I have tried to install drivers onto and that doesnt work also, so I have no idea what that could be.   I would like any advice at this point becuase its driving me mad and I am unable to return the laptop due to being currently in another country.   Thanks in advance.

Unfortunately, the trackpad and touchpad of my T460p stop working intermittently. The problem seems to occur after the laptop is going into hibernation. When it boots up afterwards, neither the trackpad nor the touchpad or the mouse buttons work, and the device manager shows the Synaptics device having a hardware issue. The problem persists when rebooting the system and even when using a different operation system (e.g. Ubuntu via a Live USB). I tried upgrading the Synaptics drivers (v19.0.19.1), which does not solve the problem though. I also tried different driver versions (e.g. the ones offered on the Lenovo site), without success. I encountered this problem both on Windows 10 Home & Windows 10 Enterprise Edition, as well as various Linux flavors (Ubuntu, Fedora). The only workaround that I found is to shut down the laptop, remove the battery and reboot it afterwards, which seems to reset the faulty state the touchpad is in. I strongly suspect that this is a problem with the firmware of either the mainboard or the Synpatics device itself, which puts it into an invalid state when going into hibernation. For now, I disabled hibernation mode, which avoids the problem but is not ideal of course. Did someone else run into this problem? Any ideas how to permanently fix this? I'm very happy with the T460p otherwise but this problem just drives me crazy as it's impossible to use a laptop without touchpad/trackpad when traveling.

Have used it for 5 hrs now, and how probably restarted about 30-40 times.  Anyone know what is causing this problem and/or how I can fix it?     //alex

Answer:X1 Carbon touchpad and trackpad stops working.

does the same problem manifest itself in the BIOS menu?have you tried doing all the updates through ThinkVantage System Update.

I recently got this new Thinkpad T460p and installed Windows and Ubuntu in dual boot. Even after 3 Days there was no error. But today I noticed a quite annoying behaviour. When I boot into Windows (Start up --> Grub, select Windows Loader --> Windows 10 starts) there appears the loading cycle (those white points) and for a short moment, even before the locked Windows screen appears, I can see the cursor. But immediately after that (when the locked home screen appears) the laptop won't recognize any input via touchpad, buttons or trackpad andthere won't appear a cursor at all. I need to login and wait for about a minute (Whatever I do, the laptop won't recognize anything but the normal keyboard), thats the moment in which my Laptop realizes that there are more possibilities to input data then just the keyboard and recognizes everything (touchpad, buttons and trackpad).I already deinstalled the synaptic driver and reinstalled the latest update and even tried the one before that one just to be sure. Nothing fixed my problem yet.PS.: When I start into Ubuntu there is no Problem at all.PPS.: When I started into Windows a day ago It worked fine as well.

I have two issues and would appreciate any help.  In a nutshell: Bluetooth module is in place, but doesn't appear in Device Manager. What is the part no. for the cable that connects the bluetooth module?Touchpad/trackpad stopped working after disconnecting/reconnecting its ribbon cable (while checking the bluetooth module) - I can see the little gold fingers at the motherboard end are now messed up. What is the part no. for this trackpad ribbon cable?In more detail:1) On my T430S I replaced the bluetooth daughter board because I thought it might be faulty - but I can still not see any bluetooth hardware in device manager, and no driver installation seems to get it to show. Can someone please tell me the part no. of the ribbon cable and small board 'Bluetooth Wireless Radio Switch FPC' (see https://support.lenovo.com/au/en/documents/pd023563).2) After messing around with the bluetooth module (see above), thetrackpad/touchpad and trackpoint no longer work. I can see now that the ribbon cable's small gold fingers are damaged (the cable poking straight up from the trackpad and connecting to the motherboard. This is the more serious problem - but I can't work out what the part number is for this ribbon cable. My keyboard bezel does not have a fingerprint reader.Thank-you again for any help

I could really use some help with this. I've searched all over the net and there isn't a real solution to this. Most threads are closed or never answered. I have a Dell Vostro 1510 and everything works fine but when doing things fast or under high cpu load my trackpad locks up for a second and if I try to keep using it it will trail slowly until I stop for a second then go and it works again. Something is temporarily locking it up and it can be very annoying during some things.

It is a Synaptics PS/2 Port TouchPad. Using "device driver update" produced no new hardware that matched better than what I have currently. The funny thing I noticed is the device drivers for my model on Dell doesn't match what I have..

None of those 3 under Keyboard/Mouse match what I have. Or do they? I matched the synaptic version and it didn't match anything there. Here is a list of my shipped system specs:

Answer:Vostro 1510 Touchpad/Trackpad Freezes Randomly

Ran the Dell diagnostics and using the symptom tree I ran the 2 tests that fit this issue (I guess it's a real common problem for it to be standard in the system tree) and it didn't detect any errors/issues. All passed. By the way, to clarify what I meant by High CPU Load I was speaking of the cylinder light on the keyboard dash. I think that's actually for the HDD not CPU. So again it seems to happen when the hdd is already under load.

Hi I have an X100e (dual core turion ybased) which appears to have developed a problem with the left most key at the foot of the touchpad. Specifically, it has developed an annoying clicking sound periodically when in use. I believe the click may be something to do with a bar that may be sitting under the key to ensure that the whole key moves parallel to the keyboard when pressed (much like other wide keys such as the space bar, the shift or enter kes). What I would like to know is whether there is a way to reseat the key to resolve the clicking sound or whether rectification of the problem lies in returning the product to a service centre for the palm rest (part code: 60Y5284) to be changed. Roger

The laptop is running Windows 10. What happens is randomly (this can take weeks, or days) the trackpad and pointing stick completely stops working. The only solution is to uninstall the drivers and reinstall them using an external mouse. I've tried various versions of the drivers, including the latest, and it still continues to happen. Any solutions to fix this?

Just got the Yoga Pro 2 this week. I'm noticing a small movement in my clickpad (or whatever its calls) when I lightly tap on it. It feels like there is a 2 to 3 millimeter pocket of space under it before it provides resistance for the actual click motion. If you take your finger and just lightly tap your finger on the touchpad do you hear and feel a slight vibration, like it might be loose? I know it has to move downwards motion to activate the mouse click buttons, but I feel like there is movement in the pad before I get resitance for the click motion. I'm wondering if this is the design or I just got a slightly off designed one. Does it feel solid on your Yoga Pro 2? 

Answer:Yoga 2 Pro Clickpad Touchpad Trackpad movement and vibrations

I had the same problem with mine.  Every time I'd just lightly tap the pad in order to "click", I'd actually hear a click.  Very annoying.  Some odd movement under the pad that just didn't seem right. I ended up exchanging it at Best Buy (where I bought it).  The best buy guy tried to claim it was normal, but didn't mind at all when I insisted that I wanted to exchange.  The replacement has no issues.

Hi all,

I've basically spent the whole day looking for a solution (which I still don't think I have), so figured I'd try my luck here.

The trackpad/touchpad (mouse cursor) on the Dell XPS 13 (9343) will randomly freeze-up, stop scrolling, stop being able to mouse click, start randomly resizing/scrolling or will cease to do anything at all after a while. This is a known issue apparently and commonly experienced by most owners.

Does anyone know of an actual solution for this? Dell released a firmware update that supposedly addressed the issue however unfortunately mine started doing it again today to the point where I had to literally power the machine off and reboot.

From what I've read here:

YES!!! A SOLUTION/ACTUAL WORKING FIX! XPS Laptop's - Touchpad / Touch pad / Mouse issue. Windows 8/10 need apply. Scrolling in Chrome mirrors that of Edge. Now THIS is Precision. Scrolling you're actually used to seeing on a laptop. : Dell

It sounds like my next move might be to try installing the windows 10 PS/2 generic driver from Synaptics?

Any advice/help on this would be greatly appreciated! I can't really find any solutions or updates past 2015..

Between this and trying to update my sound driver, I'm losing my hair, FAST.

I've tried everything. No one had ever had this problem, except me. Searching online and Youtube proved to be no help. I beg all of you who have experience with issues like this to please read.

When I first brought my laptop (ASUS Q304UA) , it was perfectly fine and no problems. However, up until 7 months into using it, the trackpad suddenly became unresponsive out of no where. It would jump around and fly everywhere when using it. The multi touch gestures would make the screen go crazy and do all sorts of zooms, multitasking, etc when just trying to scroll down. It was definitely unusable.

This prompted me to RMA it to ASUS, which took them one month to repair it. They had apparently replaced only the hard drive claiming it was a "bad sector" or whatever... Upon several hours of use after repairs, the problem was back.

I then RMA'd it a second time which made them replace the motherboard and trackpad. Unfortunately, the problem did come back, except it took a little longer (5 days/ 1week).

Now I know that this is NOT hardware because I encountered that restarts, restores, etc all solve the problem temporarily and then comes back. When messing with programs and devices, I feel the mouse gets a little better for a couple minutes but then resumes to its terrible and erratic behavior, rendering my laptop COMPLETELY useless.

I cannot do ANYTHING with this trackpad as it constantly jumps around and teleport making it EXTREMELY difficult to click on the ... Read more

Hello all,

I unboxed this laptop today and the touchpad does not respond very well often requiring a few seconds of "wiggling" before it will work. It is also quite jumpy.

I have tried changing various settings including the sensitivity and the plam prevention, but to no avail.

I have tried this with multiple operating systems, including launching directly from a disc, and the problem persists.

Has anyone else had this experience, or any advice to share regarding this matter?

Thank you all very much for your time.

Hello,

I, too, have just unboxed a Qosmio X870-119 and have the same problem with the touchpad.

I noticed that the "unresponsiveness" happens most often when I leave the touchpad idle and untouched for a few seconds. When I do that, it then takes a couple seconds of wiggling for the cursor to start moving.

I've also toyed with all the options in the provided software, but to no avail. Maybe there's a fault with the driver ?

Thanks in advance for any help with this matter.

However, a few minutes into use, if that, it starts to act up. By this, I mean the following: The cursor does not go where I intend itIt's laggyLeft click results in that omni-directional scrolling icon and trying to move the mouse means scrolling/moving the page.Right click moves off to the side and is generally weird and cannot click accurately.I can no longer soft tap to click/select something.The mouse moves on its own.

I am running the latest build of Windows 10 (build 10240).

Now that release date is coming driver updates are arriving for my laptop (Acer ES1-111M). One of which is for the Synaptics touchpad. When I apply this driver and restart my laptop the trackpad no longer works and the new driver has an error in Device Manager and cannot start.

This device cannot start (error code 10)

The specified request is not a valid operation for the target device.

If I try to update the driver it says the latest version is installed. I have to rollback the driver to the previous one supplied by Microsoft and the trackpad works again, However the entire process repeats when the Synaptics trackpad update is automatically installed again by Windows Update.

Does anyone know how to solve this?

So I have had a very... VERY... irritating problem with my Thinkpad. For the first 6 or so months I had the laptop it worked fine. Then, the left click on the touchpad was functioning like the right click (bringing up a menu).  I immediately disabled the touchpad and then used the trackpad right and left clicks which worked perfectly. After another 4 or 5 months, those buttons stopped working altogether. I could still use the touchpad to move the arrow, but I couldn't click on anything. I bought an external USB mouse and that worked fine for another 2 months. Then for a few weeks, it would work on and off. I'd have to wiggle it around in the USB ports to get the laptop to recognize it. (it had nothing to do with the ports... there were 3 of them and they all worked fine). Then it stopped working completely, AND, my laptop refuses to acknowledge ANY USB I plug in.  I have run out of options now. I can't even install anything, download any files from lenovo website. I can't do anything. Does anyone know if it is still salvageable? Has anyone had the same problem? The lenovo digitizer for tablets.... would that work for this thinkpad? (sorry... not as tech savvy as the rest of you) Thanks a bunch,Amanda

Answer:Lenovo Thinkpad T420 trackpad and touchpad right/left click stopped working

So far, there's just 2 of us with trackpoint / touchpad problems as a result of installing Windows 10.  My post:  https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-T400-T500-and-newer-T/T420-Win-10-Pro-Ultra-Nav-19-00-12-61-Tr... I've combed through this forum and have no one else reporting these same issues; most are reporting that left and right click buttons are working, but the middle button did not work.  In my case, it was the opposite; the middle button scrolled (albeit very choppy), and the left / right buttons were dead.for my Trackpoint.  It's not a hardware issue, as all buttons function as normal in Win 7, but upon installation of Win 10, the buttons do not work.  I went so far as to do a clean install of Win 10 to ensure there were no conflicts between Win 10 and any leftover Win 7 system files, only to end up with the same old left and right button problems. So until the Ultra Nav drivers to enable full functionality of trackpoint / touchpad device, the only solution is to use a physical mouse or revert back to your prior operating system.

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).

Good evening, Every now and then, after using the laptop for a while, or getting it from sleep mode, the touchpad simply quits working as it should. Clicking by simply tapping the pad stops working, and clicking by really pushing in the trackpad itself will only activate either right or left click. Sometimes it even quits working at all. After rebooting the device the issues will be over, which makes me think it is some sort of a software issue. Also every now and then, while working in my student room, my laptop loses its internet connection. While there are many Wi-Fi signals in my student room-complex, it can't detect any of them. Then, after waiting for some time and rebooting the device once or twice, the connection will get restored, and all the other signals are back as well. Both issues aren't very huge, yet very annoying when working on a paper or so. Especially since I bought the laptop a little longer then two months ago, assuming due to it's price and the ThinkPad?s reputation (being able to stop a bullet and yet still work) this is a huge disappointment Anyone who has a solution for me for either one of these problems?Thanks!  

Answer:Lenovo W540 randomly loses Wifi connections and its trackpad/touchpad often doesn't work

I have also noticed some wifi problems on the W540. I have the Intel AC7260, and occassionally, it stops working - reporting a driver problem. When this happens, it is not working at all and cannot scan for available wifi networks - exactly like you report. However, if I do a quick uninstall and scan for hardware changes within device manager, normal operation is restored, without having to reboot repeatedly. After a while, it will stop working again - this is not too frequent, however. I assume it is a dirver problem.

I am experiencing an annoying problem - my trackpad stopped working. I have narrowed it down to a driver issue. Because if i uninstall the "Synaptics ThinkPad UltraNav"-driver the trackpad starts working. As soon I install it again it stops. I have tried rebooting and it's no difference. When the driver is installed I cannot even the "Mouse" dialog in control panel.  I have tried the latest drivers: 18.0.7.40 as well as the previous driver. Same result. I have downloaded the drivers through the website as well as with Lenovo support app.  My model is the new X1 Carbon, model: 20A7005UM5 not even 2 weeks old. It worked until yesterday. The only thing done since is the regular update by Windows 8.1. I even tried a system restore before the updates but now there is no difference.  I want to point out that, when driver is uninstalled, the trackpad works, but without all the functionality. Any suggestions would be very appreciated. Regards,Jan

My brand-new P50 laptop was behaving as though the left trackpad button was sticking. When single-tapping the left trackpad button, it would behave as though the "click n' drag" setting was enabled: the trackpad would override the keyboard, preventing me from typing until either the trackpad was moved again or the button was clicked again.  I work for Microsoft and have always used Lenovo products without ever having encountered an issue before, so I was more than a little surprised. I called Lenovo support, and they were less than helpful. In the end, they suggested that the trackpad itself was defective. The laptop was orvernighted to the repair depot in the southeast. Naturally, there was a three-week wait for parts - despite this being a model currently in production. Finally, after causing a stink (this is, after all, my primary work machine), a helpful support tech located parts at another facility. Another week later, and my laptop was back - with the SAME problem continuing to surface. This time I dug deeper, looking into the various trackpad settings, tweaking the various "accidental interrupt" delay settings, verifying that the "click to drag" feature was disabled, and running various diagnostics on the trackpad itself. The one interesting thing I noted was that the button-stickiness only seemed to happen in applications (IE, Word, etc.) - the button "stickiness" didn't happen when scrolling through Windows...

Question: x220T

Hello world. I'm new to this forum. I'm also new to Lenovo products. I've now been fooling with my Lenovo x220T for a couple of months. I did my research before making a purchase. I'm not exactly a gearhead. I purchase used machinery almost exclusively. There are several reasons for this which I won't get into in this post. The x220T is the newest computing device I have ever purchased. (excluding my 'smartphone') The x220T is also the most complicated computer I have ever owned. I knew this from the beginning. As I said, I did my research. The x220T is a bit absurd and includes quite a lot of technology which is still rather, well, esoteric for a lack of better words. There are some things going on here which I am unfamiliar with. I have wondered many times what I have gotten myself into. Not that I'm giving up on understanding. I knew that it would be tough, I just didn't know that it would be this tough. I have to accept that sometimes I'm guided to things in life for no other reason than to be challenged.

Question: x220t Ssd or HD?

     Well I am about to purchase an x220t, and have settled on the I5 version.  Right now I can get the outdoor disply with ssd option for the same price as the multitouch with hd option.  The outdoor does not come with the fingerprint reader, so I will be purchasing that and installing myself.  With that in mind the ssd option becomes $60-70 more.  I plan on replacing either hard drive in a year or so with an up to date ssd.  Do you think that the initial $60-70 is worth having the 128gb ssd?  I know it is not fast, but will there be a big enough difference between the two to make it worth it?  I have a desktop, so when it comes down to it either hard drive will be going in there for extra space whenever I upgrade to a new ssd.      I am leaning towards getting the outdoor option simply because I will be using the laptop in tablet mode specifically to write, and it gets a little annoying when the digitizer does not work exactly right and my hand hits stuff.  Can anyone testify to the display's credibility?  It isnt a deal breaker if it doesn't perform especially well outside, as I will never be requited to be outside.  Still it would be nice from time to time. Thanks in advance

Answer:x220t Ssd or HD?

Not sure what your question is...but I think the ssd option is worth it in a laptop...they are more resistent to crashes due to movement, they are typically faster than mechanical drives, and they save on power and extend battery life.  I can't know how you value $70, so you have to decide for yourself. The screen on mine is nice.  I don't ever plan to use it outside, so I don't have an outdoor display...but writing on it with the stylus is very nice.  It is a very responsive screen. Please note that there apparently are some issues with the accuracy of the digitizer...there is an on-going thread here that you should read.  I got my x220t in mid December and mine seems to be fine....if it has the problems they are so slight as to not be an issue for me. Best.

Question: BSOD on X220t

Hello everyone I have an urgent problem with my X220 Tablets. I have bought 5 of them for my company.2 of them have been showing BSOD with stopcode:  0x000000F4. After searching on the internet, I found an article from Lenovo about this problem. Here is the article: http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/documents/ht062331 Apparently this was a known problem, an upgrade of the SSD firmware should help. But unfortunately, my X220 tablets don't have an optical Disc Drive, so I can't write the ISO firmware update to an CD/DVD.I tried to create a bootable USB disk with the Iso, but the tools that I used to create the bootable USB don't accept the ISO file to use. (I tried Windows 7 bootable USB tool and Rufus) Anyone else having the same problem? Other solutions ?

I want to put a camera in my x220t, and see no problem buying one , but can it be installed in a x220t that originally did not have a camera? I can not find one article on how to install one into a x220t tablet. There is plenty of information about a standard x220 (non tablet) camera install, but none for the tablet version. It looks like mine just has a little plastic covering where the camera would go that I may need to take out somehow, and then I am not sure if the "hook up" is there for the camera or not on the motherboard.

Answer:How to add camera to X220T

HiI can't confirm whether the camera replacement procedure for x220 and x220t is absolutely the same because of the screen surface difference. But you can look at the service video for x220:https://www.lenovoservicetraining.com/showcase?sid=623&key=TGVuZw==Hardware Maintenance Manual for x220t says it's possible to install or replace the camera. There are no needs for additional cable from motherboard to install new camera. It's there already. The only obstacle prevents to install camera might be a wlan antennas type. For x220(t) antennas 3x3 doesn't allow to fit a new camera. This antennas type is being used for Intel 6300 wifi adapter.For new camera installation remove small plastic cover.

So yesterday I took out my X220T to do some work at my University here in Denmark. However when I took it out, I noticed that it had a crack on the lid, and I have no idea how i got it! The bag I carry it in, is pretty padded with protective foam, so it must have been something hitting it hard.Now I wonder; I've seen a lot of new lids on Ebay, and I've seen the maintenance manual for the X220T, however is it hard to replace the lid? I have some experience with electronics, however making my X220T completely useless by trying to repair it, is even worse My warranty expired half a year ago.Also will that crack eventually cause bigger problems?RegardsJacob

Answer:Cracked my lid on my X220T :(

The procedure doesn't take more than a few hours, but unsticking the Wifi antennas can be annoying. I don't think that crack will cause any problems in the future, it's a cosmetic defect.

Hi everyone, I'm about to pull the trigger and buy an X220T with i7 and 4 GB RAM. I was hoping to get my first SSD hard drive, but I can't decide between getting the 160 GB Intel SSD (around $370 to upgrade, I believe) or getting the 320 GB HDD (which is currently free to upgrade to) and then getting an 80 GB mSATA in the WWAN slot (which looks, from the Lenovo support videos, fairly straightforward - do you guys think someone who's never taken apart/put together a laptop/computer before will be able to do this fairly readily?) Also, besides the Intel 80 GB mSATA (which appears to be sold out at Newegg...), are there any other 80 GB mSATAs out there that y'all would recommend? Another thing - I skimmed through the thread about mSATA/USB3.0/i7 incompatibility, but just to check, that should be fixed now, right? Also, i7 is the only core that comes with USB3.0 for the X220T, correct? Appreciate any advice/help!

Answer:X220T with [160 GB SSD] vs [320 GB HDD + mSATA]?

Sadly there is no USB 3.0 with the X220T even with the i7. I got caught with that too. There was some misinformation from official Lenovo sources, but only the i7 X220 laptop has USB 3.0. I am going with the 40GB intel mSATA but I haven't received mine yet. I realize it's slower than the 80GB but I'm looking at it solely for booting windows and office. This is the procedure that I am planning on employing, experts please point out flaws or provide suggestions. Hopefully this helps somewhat: This is the first time I will be installing a fresh copy of Windows 7. In preparation I have downloaded the Windows 7 iso HERE and created a boot drive on my USB stick with Windows 7 USB/DVD Download Tool. I used a keyfinder to locate my Windows 7 key, Magic Jelly Bean. I also downloaded a copy of the ThinkVantage System Update for convenience later on. I will install the mSATA SSD and remove my existing HDD then boot the computer from my USB stick and go through the installation procedure. Once Windows 7 is installed I'll install the ThinkVantage System Update and cross my fingers that it finds all of the correct tablet drivers etc. I'll then reinstall and format the HDD.

Do the i7 tablet models come with USB 3.0 port(s)? I have read and seen a lot of conflicting reports on this and would appreciate clarification...  (The X220t unboxing video states that USB 3.0 comes on the i7 models.)

The X220 Tablet does not come with USB 3.0 natively even with the Core i7 (mine did not and I maxed out on this machine, you also won't find USB 3.0 in the tabook for the X220 Tablet, only for the non-tablet X220), you can get a USB 3.0 adapter via the ExpressCard Slot though.

Provides up to six SATA ports at 3 Gb/s with up to two ports supporting 6 Gb/s transfer rates." It's says up to two ports supporting 6 Gb/s, but does the X220 or the X220T support it?

Question: x220t frame

Hi! I bought my Lenovo x220t earlier this year, and I absolutely love it (finally upgraded from a 6 year old Dell laptop). However, right off the bat, I noticed a small crack on the plastic where the palm rests are. I don't apply too much pressure on it at all. from regular use nor did i really mind. However as time went on, the corner piece of the laptop started to crack as well and now it's fallen off including where the rubber cushion used to be.

Hello there. I want to start off buy saying I bought my x220t multitouch tablet pc around December (i5 processor, 8 gb RAM, all the bells and whistles), and I LOVE it!  The only thing I'm looking to upgrade on it is the pen.  For me the pen works absolutely fine; however, when I upgraded to the tablet pc, I was upgrading from a Wacom Intuos4 tablet.  I absolutely loved the pens that come with the Wacom tablets have 2 buttons (usually a left and right click button), and I find it increasingly annoying to use CS5 without being able to have a pen button set to pan/scroll and the other set to brush options.  So basically I was wondering if anyone knows a pen in existence or in development that will be compatible with the x220 tablet that has these characteristics.  Of course it'd be grand if it fit in the pen slot on my laptop, but worst case scenario it doesn't.  Any help is appreciated, thank you!

Answer:Other pens for x220t?

The X220T uses the same Wacom pen as all other Wacom Enabled pens. (like Toshiba M200, many e-readers etc). These pens are not compatible with any of the recent Wacom tablets (like Graphice, Bamboo, Intuos etc).  I've seen many other pens for Wacom enabled tablets, but non of them had two buttons. I do not know whether this is even possible. The Dell Latitude Tablets use a pen with two buttons, but the small one just switches to earease function, it's not mappable.

Hi, My x220t took a massive tea spill. Fortunately, it still has all my data and operates normally... for the most part. I understand that it isn't covered by my warranty, but I was wondering if someone here could give me some really really rough projections as to what I'll have to be replacing and cost of repair, as I'm a college student and don't really have very much money to expend on repairs. From what I've heard, it could cost up to $1000 just replacing the screen, and it's sent me into a semi-panic.  Symptoms/The story:My laptop was on sleep mode at the time when the spill happened.Tea drained out of the keyboard, etc, but got into the monitor. You could see the tea streaks moving across the screen. Afterwards, I let my laptop dry before turning it back on again. At first, the monitor was working, but then the lights in the screen flashed and then I was notified that the USB was not recognized. After that, the screen wouldn't display any longer. I hooked up my laptop to an external monitor, which worked. Everything seemed fine, except sometimes, the keyboard would stop functioning and I'd be constantly routed to the ctrl-alt-del screen (where there are options to lock your computer, access the task manager, etc). Upon restarting, this problem goes away for awhile. The internet and usb ports themselves work fine. On occasion, the power button works, and the power button on the screen works as well.  In the mean time, I'm backing up my syste... Read more

it is hard to say what the cost of the repair would be, but if your damage was to the motherboard and the LCD, then it would cost upwards of 800 dollars for the repair. You can send the laptop in for a quote (which cost some mony), then decide what you should do with your laptop. Or just sell the laptop for parts and get a new laptop.

Question: New X220t user

Hi there, just ordered my new X220t from BHPhotovideo.It's a 429637U unit (i7 / 8 GB RAM / 320 GB HDD / Multi-touch screen)  includes the Ultrabase3 and the 6-cell battery.Funny enough, bhphoto swears that no stylus is included, so I bought one separately from amazon.Now, if the unit still comes with a stylus...well, tough luck, I'll have 2 styli. i also bought a Lenovo 12W sleeve. The only thing I am sad I did not buy is the WWAN card. Sadly, BH did not have a configuration with the card built-in. I could have bought the Gobi3000 card separately but I saw what it means to install it, you basically dismantle half of the laptop...Lenovo could have put the card beneath the machine with a quick access door, **bleep**.Like it is, I am a bit afraid to dismantle the tablet just to have all the creaks and movements afterwards from various plastic parts not assembled right.. Any advices for a newbie in the Lenovo tablet world? It's my first Lenovo, tablet or not.Do I have to check anything in particular at arrival and unboxing?  

Answer:New X220t user

It's a cliche, but a Virgin Mobile MiFi or CLEAR 4G card, or smartphone tethering, are great conveniences [provided you're in the US, of course]. So welcome, fellow newbie. I've got twelve weeks or so under my X220 laptop, and it's been rather smooth sailing. I would be interested about your battery life with the i7 and 8GB RAM. My X220 with i7/8GB gets 6 hours at most from the 6-cell, and like the matpl89 in the other thread it can get as low as 4 or 3 hours depending on load.  As far as issues to look for, just read up on the threads in this forum. There's an ongoing issue about alleged momentary burn-in and significant backlight bleed with the IPS LCD screen, but I think it's a matter of opinino and nitpicking, really.And I humbly suggest, even though you have the tablet, give the red trackpoint mouse stick a chance, especially if you do a lot of typing. [Assuming you're not coming from another business notebook.] When I was just learning, I found it helps to turn down the pressure sensitivity to "light touch" but then crank down the pointer speed. Presently, I prefer the trackpoint to all other forms of mousing, except touch screens.Oh, the "throttling" thing. If you haven't read about it, some X220 laptops have tended to underclock themselves back to 800mhz [the battery-saving mode] even when set for full speed. [Use HWinfo64 or AllCPUmeter to tell.] In most cases, it was for users who ran the laptop plugged with the battery removed[!] And they say the new... Read more

Question: X220T not booting

I have an X220T that will not boot and I am wondering where to go with it. It is out of warranty, I suspect the SSD is probably dead but not sure how I can know that for sure. Yesterday I had a load of Windows updates to apply, ran that, it rebooted, and then took a long time for the login screen to appear. When it did I got a couple of errors which I just had to dismiss and then it seemed to be working fine. A little later on it blue screened. I switched it off and then switched it back on. It gets to the Intel Boot Agent which I don't recall normally seeing, and starts searching I guess for a network boot drive? It then says "No boot filename resolved" and exits. I then come to a Boot Menu with options of the SSD, PCI LAN, DVD or my external drive. Selecting the SSD just makes the screen go blank for a few seconds and then the menu reappears. I tried booting from the Rescue and Recovery DVD, but selecting any recovery options don't work. If I select to recover files it doesn't show any files. In the System Information page, the processor, memory, everything is blank, the drive shows "not available".
