X60 tablet pc digitizer pen functionality disabled in tablet pc mode

Question: X60 tablet pc digitizer pen functionality disabled in tablet pc mode

Well, I've finally had it. I've had my 6365 CTO X60 tablet pc for over a year now and last Monday I lost pen functionality in tablet pc mode in the afternoon after working fine in the morning. It works fine, even now after rotating the screen back to laptop mode. As soon as the screen is rotated back to tablet pc mode, no pen functionality but the mouse still works fine so I know it's functional in laptop mode but rotate back, all ok! I did uninstall the Wacom drivers, restart, and then downloaded the tablet pc, windows xp version drivers from the wacom.com site as instructed in a previous post. Unfortunately, the digitizer pen is still disabled in tablet pc mode and works fine when rotated back to laptop mode. I've called Lenovo tech support in Atlanta four times now and they've been totally useless. I wiped out my X60 tablet last Friday and used Rescue and Recovery to reinstall the operating system back to it's factory settings. I went back and unistalled and reinstalled the Wacom driver. Nothing. Since that didn't work either I've requested the box to ship this back to the Memphis Depot. Hopefully, I'll just get a new replacement machine that works but I'm so angry and frustrated w/ Lenovo's support because it's obvious that the people on the phone are not tech specialists and they couldn't even point me in a direction to get this fixed. It's cost me over a week now worth of headache over a seemingly known driver issue that still hasn't been resolved. Has anyone else experienced this and if so, please help!

Answer: X60 tablet pc digitizer pen functionality disabled in tablet pc mode

Problem solved! While the support folks weren't able to fix the problem over the phone, they did overnite me a prepaid return box which I sent back that day. Two days later they overnited my X60 tablet back fixed with a note saying 'LCD enabled'. I'm impressed how quickly they got my tablet pc back up and running. I'm glad I got that 3-yr. support warranty because I usually opt out of those things. This totally paid for itself. I just wish I hadn't been so reluctant to send back my laptop because I do need it for work and I figured I wouldn't get it back for at least a week or longer. I was so frustrated and pessimistic that I forgot sometimes these problems do get fixed in a very satisfactory manner. It's too bad the initial steps that led to sending it back were so painful. Bottom line: Lenovo fixed my pc quickly, no questions asked. Thanks!

I've had my X60 for over a year and this problem started only a few weeks ago.  While in laptop mode I can use the pen with full functionality on the touchscreen.  However, as soon as the screen is converted to tablet mode, the pen stops working and going back to laptop mode does not solve the problem.  However if I put the laptop in and out of sleep mode, I regain the pen functionality.  Has anyone else experienced this and does anyone have any ideas as to why it's happening?

Answer:X60 Pen functionality disabled when in tablet mode

emtrader1004, welcome to Lenovo's Forums! When the pen does not work, switch back to laptop mode, open device manager and see if the pen is still enabled.  Personally, in my three years using tablets, I have never seen this behavior.  Typically it works all of the time, or never. What os are you using, and what service packs do you have installed?  Are you using a custom windows install, or are you using the preload?  You could try removing the pen, I believe that it is an input device, and see if Windows will reinstall it for you.  I am not at my tablet now, but I will check all of this tomorrow.  If putting the tablet to sleep and resuming makes it work, it almost seems like a power issue.

Hello everyone! I've been using my TPY 14 for almost a year now and I liked it very much.  I got a digitizer pen for it and it is working. The problem is when I switched to tablet mode it shuts off.  If the the computer sleeps, it shuts (pen) off also.  I need to re start the laptop to activate it again.  Is this normal?   Thanks for the help!

I have a problem where the digitizer pen interittently stops working on the yoga S1 - win8.1 x64 with all updates applied.I can re-create the issue by folding the screen from normal mode to  tablet mode, then normal mode , then tablet mode. At this point, the pen susually stops working. I can get it to come back to life sometimes if i wait a minute, or if i go to power settings and apply / un apply something or by restart. It sounds like a driver issue to me - and possiby power management drivers - triggered by swithcing to tablet mode.I have tried max perfromance, min power savings etc to stop the screen driver being starved of power, have disabled sleep and hibernation. Done multiple driver re-installs, but no difference. Sometimes restarting the drivers relating to the pen and touch screen bring it back to life. But it should not die in the first place. Anyone else have this or do i have a hardware issue?

Hey community, I have a flex 4-1570 notepad and whenever I am trying to switch to tablet mode, the physical keyboard doesn't disable.

The touchpad keeps working on my S1 when I go to tablet mode, which keeps me from using it on my laptop. I am running Win7 64bit. Following some other suggestions online, I have uninstalled and reinstalled the touchpad driver ver 18.0.7.100. This did not work. It would also be fine with me if there was a way that I could manually disable the touchpad, but I can't find the method. When I go to the mouse settings, I can change the mode (trackpad only, etc.) but I can't turn off the touchpad.

Hi all, I have recently upgraded to windows 7 (64bit) and now when I  put my tablet into tablet mode, the screen doesn't autorotate and none of the tablet buttons work. In order to rotate the screen I have to right click on the desktop and choose graphic properties/rotation.Interestingly if I press the tablet buttons while in tablet mode and then rotate the screen up to notepad mode within a few seconds the button will perform its function (rotate screen, activate tablet shortcut menu, etc). Does anyone know how to fix this problem? I've tried running system update (4.0) to no avail. Cheers

I know in the IdeaPad Yoga models of the past it was possible to disable throttling in tablet mode by disabling DPTF in the BIOS.  I've looked at my Thinkpad Yoga now, and there's nothing like DPTF in the BIOS or among the drivers that I can find.   Problem is the tablet slows down a LOT when in tablet mode.  All the applications take forever to open.  Everything is slow.  It's not right with a laptop that has an i5 5300U in it and behaves like an old tablet with an ARM processor  Any way to disable this throttling or at least lessen it? For reference, I'm still using Windows 8.1 on it.

I have a Cherry Mobile Alpha Morph that works without problems aside from the fact that, when I undock it from the keyboard, it doesn't detect that it should now be in Tablet Mode. I have to manually go to the Action Center and toggle it there. Same with docking it back. I have already checked my settings and I didn't disable Tablet Mode either.

Anyone have an idea how I can resolve this? I just want to seamlessly dock and undock the tablet and it should switch to tablet or desktop mode respectively.

I don't know if it's relevant but the OS is Windows 10 Home Single Language.

Answer:Tablet mode doesn't get engaged when I undock my Windows tablet?

Hey all, I have a weird problem.  My tablet buttons have stopped working-- but only in tablet mode.  That is, I can't rotate, or bring up the tablet shortcuts, or move around the screen in tablet mode.  Also autorotate doesn't work.  But if I switch out of tablet mode, I can do all of these things just fine (except for autorotate). Also, when I switch into tablet mode the screen doesnt rotate or anything, but when I switch out of tablet mode the screen rotates to the direction I defined in the settings (sometimes.. to be honest it seems pretty random to me).  I am running 32 bit vista w/ 4 gb ram on an x61 tablet with the latest drivers.  I have uninstalled the tablet button drivers and the lenovo system interface and reinstalled them already.. I have the latest APS. Help me out here.. I have no idea why this isn't working!  Don't make me have to reinstall vista to get the buttons working.. Tha'ts ridiculous!!  Arrrgh.

Hi all,    I have a really annoying problem...my x220 tablet disconnects from the internet whenever I enter tablet mode. The internet can be working perfectly fine while in non tablet mode but as soon as I switch to tablet mode, my internet disconnects.

I can load a page in non tablet mode with no problems, switch to tablet mode and the page stops loading. If I return back to non tablet mode the page resumes loading without so much as a pause or a hiccup. Also, when I switch the computer to tablet mode, wifi networks disappear off of the "available networks" list that were there before the switch.     I've tried everything, from updating network device drivers, reinstalling network device drivers, running diagnostics, reformatting my computer, uninstalling Norton Antivirus, system restoring to days before the last known working date in normal mode and safe mode, and contacting customer support (chat and call, managed to get a hold of a rep) but none of them have worked.    I also used to have a networking log before I reformatted/system reset to factory settings and there were a ton of errors with words like avsc manager failed to "something" ...

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!!

When I fold my Yoga 11s (Haswell) into tablet mode in Windows 10, the touch pad is not disabled and my fingers and legs can cause the mouse to activate and move around when I want to just be using the touch screen.  Am I missing something, or does the touchpad driver for the Yoga 11s (Haswell) not properly support Windows 10 when you fold the Yoga into a tablet?

Answer:Yoga 11s (Haswell) touch pad not disabled when in tablet mode in Windows 10

I had the same problem although mine included not automatically switching to tablet mode when folding the screen back. Ultimately I learned that I needed to download the Lenovo Transition driver. I don't have the link but if you search it you'll find it. That will clear everything up.  A file is installed called ymc.exe, which stands for yoga mode control. Check your task manager to see if you have it.

Answer:Tablet Digitizer Pen

It depends on where it is stuck.  Sometimes you can separate the keyboard bezel from the lower case, just slightly, and the pen will come out.  You can also use tweezers to see if you can grap the pen clip and pull it out.

Hi All, I'm new to the forum and did a search. I could not find the answer to this question and was hoping someone had the answer to my question. When doing dual screens, with display port plugged in, and do extended monitor; i find that my digitizer/touch tries to work on both screens. is there a way to only have the digitizer work on the screen with the actual touch screen / digitizer sensor on it. I bought the x220 tablet thinking I could have an extended monitor on a book, or presentation, while my tablet could be on one note taking notes on the tablet. I know a possible "solution" could be why don't I print it up to one note, and mark it up there.

Answer:wp8 tablet with PC functionality

As far as I know the plan is that Windows tablets will run Windows 8, not WP8. It should be able to do anything your desktop PC can (with the exception for those that run on ARM chipsets, since those will need native apps written for that version). Networking features should be the same in both versions, while connectivity will depend on devices and regions (and carriers, if you're in the US or somewhere with a similar market...)

The title pretty much says it all. I got inspired by the recent article concerning the 5 best tablets for note-taking, which can be found here: Some great Windows tablets for note-taking | Windows Central
Being a student, my budget isn't very high. I would like pressure sensitivity, as it seems to allow for a more accurate writing experience. Therefore, the Asus VivoTab Note 8 seemed the way to go. I don't care much for the latest processor, it needs to run OneNote just fine and that's basically it.
However, since I'm from The Netherlands or Europe so to speak, availability of all the options isn't that high and prices are far from friendly. I could not find a decent offering in NL, but amazon.de got them around 200.
?But before ordering I would like to either test it or find somewhat more decent reviews (WCentral doesn't have one?).
?So in conclusion:
?-Do you know any cheap note-taking Windows tablets with active digitizers?
-Price?
?-Availability in Europe/NL?
?Cheers,
Tiemen

Answer:Best cheap tablet with active digitizer (+ stylus presumably)

Word of caution, I owned the Note 8 for some time and there was an issue with the calibration. Granted, I was an early adopter and the issue may have been fixed through an update already but the problem was that the digitizer simply would not register taps near the edges when in portrait mode. I use Windows Journal quite a bit to take handwritten notes on the go and this tablet could never write on the lines well. I got used to "aiming" higher on the display to get my text to fall on the lines but I'd hate to see a student like yourself with limited resources not get what you need. Best of luck.

Dear All, I have recently purchased a Lenovo X61 Tablet PC. The operating system has been mistakenly replaced with Windows XP Professional. As a consequence at the moment I am not able to use the Tablet buttons. I wonder whether there is a way of restoring the Tablet PC functionality with Windows XP Professional or it is necessary to reinstall the previous Windows XP Tablet operating system. In the second case, where can I get Windows XP Tablet from? Many thanks Marco

First, allow me to say I'm ignorant when it comes to this whole 'stylus' support issue. I've heard people lament about how this tablet has Wacom digitizer support but that one doesn't, and this one has some other type of stylus support, etc. I don't really understand what you geniuses are talking about because everyone complained about how the Surface Pro had some type of stylus support but the Surface RT did not, but then I went to a Microsoft store and an employee was showing off a stylus that seemed to work quite well on the Surface RT, so I couldn't figure out what all the fuss was about. So, if you have time, please explain to me the different types of styluses and the pros and cons behind them
Second, as I didn't know much about styluses I didn't really care much, but just last night I found myself wanting to draw a diagram in Office on my tablet and thinking, "huh, I bet this is where a stylus would come in handy." Now, I'm in the market for a new 2-in-1 device and so I would much appreciate recommendations on which devices support what kind of stylus and why that's good or bad.
Here is a list of devices that piqued my interest, but I'm more than happy to check out any others not on this list that you recommend:Surface 2Surface Pro 2Lenovo Yoga 2 ProSony Tap 11Dell XPS 11Dell XPS 12Dell Venue Pro 11

Answer:Which 2-in-1 tablet/ultrabooks have what kind of digitizer stylus support?

Come on now, all I read in all of the other threads debating the merits and demerits of this season's 2-in-1 devices like the Surface Pro 2 were all about stylus support, so surely you stylus aficionados have something to contribute here. Pretty please?

Good day. I purchased a manufacturer refurbished ThinkPad X220t  with warranty for one year. The laptop came with a factory seal. When I turn on a notebook,  the operating system(win 7 Prof 64bit) automatically install. At the end of installation in device manager  all devices have been identified and worked fine.  But in computer details in the "system" was written ?No Pen or Touch Input is available for this display?. Then I installed all the drivers on a laptop from Lenovo website again and again. That did not help. Then I reinstalled windows (win 7 Prof 32bit). That did not help. Previously, I had two X200t and when I installed windows 7, the digitizer immediately was detected, for the good work of  the touchscreen it was necessary to install drivers. But the situation with the X220 for me incomprehensible. Explain what I did wrong. The type of ThinkPad printed on the back label is 4294-CTR(in BIOS the type is 4294-CTO).

Hello All,
I bought a new tablet two days ago and instantly went and installed Windows 10 once I made sure it worked.
After installing Windows 10 I've lost some functionality.The Capacitive "Win" button and physical volume buttons no longer work (more on this below).There is no auto-rotate option in the display settings, even though Device Manager can see the sensor (Kionix KXCJ9 Accelerometer SPB)Camera is finicky. Each boot it fails to work unless I select "Update Driver" in device manager and choose the exact same driver from my local disk. Its listed as "Intel Imaging Signal Processor 2400".
With regards to the physical buttons on the tablet, I went through device manager looking for anything relating to the GPIO Buttons. I found "GPIO Buttons Driver" and "Sideband GPIO Buttons Injection Device". Both are listed as working.
Strangely, I also found a keyboard installed. Its listed as "HID Keyboard Device" and in the driver properties, it says its location is "on GPIO Buttons Driver". So I assume Windows has mapped the physical buttons to a keyboard driver, but I can't trigger any key inputs with the on-screen keyboard or text editor such as notepad.
All of these functions worked in Windows 8.1 that came pre-installed. I cannot roll-back the system to 8.1 as the update to Win10 replaced the Win8 recovery partition with its own. I don't want to return the tablet to the manufacturer since they'll just re-image it with Windows 8 again, rather than fix the issues with Windows 1... Read more

Answer:Windows 10 removed some tablet functionality. Fix?

the auto rotate option is there...look at the bottom right and tap the icon that looks like an IM call out...you should find the button

If you install Vista on the R20 tablet - do you get the functionality to write on the screen ?

Answer:Satellite R20: Can it run the tablet functionality under Vista?

Hi

Well, I?m not a R20 owner and have not installed the Vista but it seems the necessary drivers are available and the tablet functionality should works with Vista.
On the Toshiba Vista driver page I have found the Satellite R20 (PSR20) and the Tablet PC Extension Package for Vista.
The TOSHIBA Tablet PC Extension package installs a range of important utilities.

TOSHIBA Rotation Utility: Set the default screen orientation you want the system use when switching from PC to Tablet mode, or vice-versa.

TOSHIBA Tablet PC Buttons Driver: You can dedicate tablet buttons to performing common tasks so that you can easily operate your tablet computer when you're away from your workstation. For example, you can dedicate a button to open a program or to change your screen orientation.

TOSHIBA Accelerometer Utilities: The TOSHIBA Accelerometer Utilities are a set of hardware utilities that work with the motion sensors built into you machine. With the Accelerometer, your machine will be able to detect the way you are holding it at any given moment. You can set the machine to perform a specific function when the unit is quickly tilted to the left or right, or to the front or back.
You can also take control of the cursor in some applications and make it move by leaning the PC in a cert.

Well, I?m not a R20 owner and have not installed the Vista but it seems the necessary drivers are available and the tablet functionality should works with Vista.

Answer:x200 tablet w/ multitouch -- multi touch and digitizer pen not working

Just to cover our bases, have you downloaded and installed the latest drivers for Windows 7? Here's the multitouch drivers:http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?sitestyle=lenovo&lndocid=MIGR-73295 And here's all the others for Windows 7, just in case:http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/product.do?subcategoryind=0&familyind=427841&brandind=10&... Forgive me if you've already done that. Other than drivers, I'm not sure what you can do to troubleshoot it. I know it works in Win 7, since I've read several reviews about the Windows 7 experience on the x200. Seth

I broke my hinge a few weeks ago when I was packing up to leave class (which is indicative of the poor lenovo build/engineering quality that I've come to expect). The pen stopped working (even after I installed the wacom drivers I still get code 10 - the device cannot start). The buttons on the tablet don't work (orientation, esc, arrows, etc.). The fingerprint reader does not work. The laptop does not recognize the screen's orientation (open/closed/tablet). Most of the LED indicators do not function (System power and hard drive activity work, but NUM/CAPS lock, wifi, battery, plug, and sleep do not). I opened the laptop and replaced the hinge. I also replaced all the wiring (as it seemed like it might be damaged by the broken hinge) to the lcd assembly and the inverter card (it came with the wiring assembly). New hinge works great, but the features are all still gone. Is this a problem with my microprocessor board? (Item 14 - http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?lndocid=MIGR-67024) I'm guessing that it is... Is there a high probability that I need a new lcd assembly? I don't really understand the interplay between the inverter board, the fingerprint reader, the digitizer, and the microprocessor board. Does anyone here know? EDIT: 7764CTO, Vista Business (fresh install)Message Edited by jcy6h on 03-21-2009 10:16 AM

Hello.

Recently the touch screen input has stopped working entirely on my tx2000 series Tablet PC.

I believe that the issue is related to the "Wacom Touch Serivce".

Below is a direct link to a screen-shot of three relevant windows, from top to bottom respectively;

1] The Services window.

3] The service as it appears in the System Configuration window.

This second link shows a relevant portion of my Device Manager, which is showing no errors whatsoever;

All of the options and menus appear in the Control Panel properly.
These things in mind, it appears to me that Wacom Touch Service is the issue.
I am not sure what I can do to resolve this, since reinstalling the drivers has not allowed the service to start.

At least as a monitor.I can not see anything in the screen not even in backlight.But I can use the digitizer on screen... Namely if I touch the screen with the pen it makes me mouse. It seems strange because I was convinced it was a matter of cables.What can it be?Should be the illuminator? I think not, because in this case should be seen vaguely. Is that correct?Then I thought, or the display itself or cables that connect to the main board?I opened but everything seems to be ok. What is more likely is.I would like to understand it before you buy spare parts useless.How can I test which of the components is?I hope someone can help me,Thanks in advance

I'm using a Windows XP with Google Chrome as my browser
The problem started when I was trying to get to Youtube. I clicked the link and a fatal error occurred. Something about a redirect loop. One of the possible solutions google gave me was to clear all cookies and so I did. But then when I did that and went to my desktop, my wallpaper was gone and it said "Active Desktop Recovery" "Active desktop has been turned off" etc. I ran ATF Cleaner and Super-Anti-Spyware free edition in safe mode and thought the problem was solved. Anti-Spyware found something called "Hijacker.Tubby" and "Hijacker.Deskbar" It quarantined them and I thought it was done. But my Active desktop was still disabled and the driver for my wacom tablet isn't running.
I need this solved as quick as possible because this problem is setting me back on several assignments for my art class. I can't just start over on a piece of paper; too much time was put into the work that's already been done.

Hi All,

I have a 24" Wide screen monitor connected via the docking station on my M400. My question is, is it possible to also use the internal LCD and it's tablet functionality when using my 24" monitor.

The 24" display is fine but the internal LCD display is rotated 90 degrees giving a black border top and bottom (portrait way up) but the digitizer is working in landscape mode. So if I move the pen down it moves to the right on the screen :)

It is so close to being right I hope that this can be achieved. It would be great to work off of the 24" monitor and to have the Windows Journal open for writing notes on the tablet screen.

Thanks,
Royce

Answer:Portege M400 - Vista - External Monitor + internal tablet functionality

Hi

Hmmm? if you want to change the screen orientation I would suggest to checking the Toshiba Tablet options.
There you should find the Tool called ?Rotation Utility?.

This Utility provides some option to change the screen orientation in the PC mode and in the Tablet mode.
When the notebook was set to Tablet mode you can choose between Primary portrait, primary landscape, secondary landscape and secondary portrait.

Check it simply

Hello Hansenc!
 
Welcome to the support forums! I definitely understand your button frustration. How long have you been having this issue? I am not sure what OS you are using, but  I took a look at your X201 Tablet Driver Matrix, under Mouse and Keyboard you should find ThinkPad Tablet Button Driver II. Try installing this to see if it makes a difference.
 
I find the ThinkVantage System Update tool to be easier than reviewing the driver matrix to verify that my machine is uptodate. Might be helpful for you too.

Hello
My Wacom tablet's pen has died and I hope to have a new one arriving in a few days but in the meantime I dug out an old Hanvon Rollick tablet which isn't supported under Windows 10 (which I use) but I nevertheless found some Windows 7 drivers for it which people reported working under Windows 10.

The problem is my PC is trying to behave like a tablet e.g. putting that blue teardrop thing on text boxes on Chrome (I'm not sure of its correct name) and when I try to ctrl-click a link, it shows a little "ctrl" label under the cursor and won't open the link in a new tab like it's supposed to and just does it in the same tab.

It takes multiple tries to right-click and open a link and when I hover over the link the cursor keeps rapidly flashing between the arrow and finger icons.

It is very difficult to click minimise, restore or close on Chrome because hovering over them doesn't make them go red and clicking on them doesn't tend to make them do anything unless you try many, many times.It's being profoundly irritating in programs other than Chrome too but those are some examples.

Perhaps the cable got severed when you were turning it around? I've had a Wifi antenna cable break this way on an HP tablet... If it's still under warranty have them check it and replace it if necessary. It could also be a loose connector but there's no way to be sure without opening the screen assembly.

hi guys i really want to try a windows 8 tablet and i plan to buy it either by the end of this month or by next January. I am confused on what to pick though
First of all, the reason why I want a windows 8 tablet IS because i like the interface. but more importantly, i need metatrader and cTrader in legacy app as im a full time forex trader. I have metatrader in my iphone but you cant seriously compare that with the windows version (no tabbing, no lines drawing, no fibonacci, etc.). cTrader doesnt even exist there.
im looking to replace my macbook pro (which btw i also installed windows 8 on it through parallels virtual desktop) with a windows 8 tablet to support my trading while im outside
So basically I dont need a super i7 tablet or something. However, im curious to know how windows 8 atom tablets perform. I have seen enough reviews and some people says atom tablets perform badly in legacy apps. Question is, how bad is that bad? Does it lag so bad even though i dont need to run heavy apps like adobe? I only need to run these trading apps which btw are very light. You can compare them with MS paint i believe, just with constant connection.
would it do well in atom tablets? I dont want lags when i switch from win8 native apps to metatrader and cTrader.
next question - how does windows 8 tablet on-screen keyboard work with legacy apps? Would i have special gesture to show up the on-screen keyboard or it automatically appears when i touch the screen? I personally dont believe ... Read more

But i have some questions before i proceed to buy it for my child
1. As it is 16gb tablet but in actual we get only 4gb free space & i have read in reviews that once we update windows & other apps we are left with only 400mb space & we cant install other apps. So is it possible to install software's (.exe) on 64GB memory card which this tablet support ?
I am not talking about APPS, I am talking about .exe files like photoshop, ERP, educational softwares etc.
2. As it is having only 1 USB port so it is possible to attach a USB hub so that we can attach pen drives, KB, Mouse, HDD, 3g Dongel & power adapter at once ?

I was thinking about getting a wacom bamboo tablet for my art in photoshop (which I make on my desktop... x220 isn't powerful enough for what I do in photoshop). Then I realized that my x220 tablet is kind of the same thing. Is there anyway I can connect my tablet to my desktop so that when I'm using photoshop, I can use the stylus on the tablet to control what I do? Many thanks in advance.

Answer:Connecting x220 tablet to a desktop to use it like a wacom tablet with stylus

AFAIK, not easily:http://www.ersatzhaderach.com/blog/2013/02/02/turn-an-old-penabled-tablet-pc-into-a-networkable-art-...

After a fatal error in my windows, I had to reinitialize my windows 10. After I did so by the windows original tools, the windows became completely stable, but all tablet features are lost. Even thinkvantage cannot recognize many features and hardwares do not work. What should I do?

I am currently on a Dell Venue 11 5130 with a Bay Trail Atom Z3770 and 2GB ram. While it serves the purpose of my usage of office suites and web browsing, I could use a little faster tablet. It would stutter if I have more than 5 tabs open on Edge. But there is nothing wrong with this tablet with a plenty of battery life and nothing broken after using if for close to 4 years now.
I am looking at a Dell Latitude 11 5175 tablet with a Core M3 and 4GB of ram. Is this upgrade worth it? Or should I save some more money to get the Core M5 version for around $150 more? My usage is office word, and youtube.

The latest bios update of X1 Tablet (Model:20GG) breaks the sleep (or hibernation) function. I found the tablet sometimes cannot be waken up by pressing the power button after entering connected standby. The version of the flawed BIOS is1.68-1.21 (N1LUJ30W) After rolling the embedded controller version back to 1.20 (N1LUJ29W), the problem no longer exists.

I have a wierd problem - I have six X61 Tablets, all with XP SP3.  One of them gets the BSOD on every boot during the XP Logo scroll.  This occurs on both its original drive and if I put in an HDD which works fine in another chassis.  Note that it will copy (clone) that disk fine if I follow normal protocol using Acronis True Image Home 2010 CD (on the ultrabase with either CD or DVD) - it clones USB drive to HDD fine, then that HDD works fine in another chassis, but gives the same BSOD when I try to run it in this chassis.  I am pulling my hair out trying to figure what is different, as I am unaware of any setup or BIOS changes.  Any ideas?  Could a bad CMOS battery cause this?  I have yet to try a new HDD setup from Lenovo disk set, but that is my next try.  I hoped to get insight here first, though.  Thanks in advance. Joe Holzer

Hey there Cr0sschex77,
 
To get some clarification to better direct you, what operating system are you currently using? Additionally are you referring to physical buttons or "buttons" on the touchscreen once at the desktop? Thanks Cr0sschex77!

and it keeps on repeating the same thing...
please help me ....

Answer:PERFORMED TABLET RESET now UNABLE to START TABLET

If it is still under warranty, call Lenovo. IF you tried to reset to factory defaults, and it is still failing, then you have something else that is going bad. My suspicion would be memory as that is what happened to me although it was on a desktop. Something to check...good luck.

Hi I have installed 64bit windows 7 on my machine quite recently in order to utilise the extra ram. When i rotate the screen clockwise to tablet mode, the screen will auto rotate to primary potrait by default and the buttons will work as usual. However, when i swivel my screen anti clockwise to tablet mode, the screen will NEVER auto orientate to primary potrait mode and all the tablet buttons will not work if i rotate the screen ANTI CLOCKWISE. Can anyone help me on this? Thanks alot in advance for the replies

The bay trail tablets come with office 2013 preinstalled, I cracked my asus t100 and wanted to move office to my new dell venue 11 pro core i3 version. I downloaded office and it got to the point where it needed to check if any other computers are using the license. So of course with it being activated on the asus it didn't let me. So is there anyway of deactivating it from the asus and transferring it to the dell or is the office version "special" that came with the bay trail tablets?

Answer:Possible to transfer microsoft office from bay trail tablet to new tablet?

Hi,
I'm going to be doing some presentations and teaching online. I'm using Team Viewer 9 running on Windows 7 as my software. I would like to be able to have the equivalent to a whiteboard visible to the participants.
For a demonstration of the sort of thing I want to do see
click here
where the presenter draws circles etc. He doesn't do any handwriting in the YouTube video (but he does in the actual presentation at CBT nuggets)
I'm total newbie when it comes to tablets, but a tablet that allows drawing direct on the tablet and simultaneous display on a Windows monitor. I know that the presentation on You Tube was done with various Wacom devices. Intuos4, Cintiq monitor, or more recently, Cintiq Companion tablet. (I tweeted the presenter Shawn Powers). These devices are a bit beyond my budget. Is there a cheaper alternative? Sadly the Microsoft Surface Pro 2 is not yest available in Australia (where I am) - I'm not sure if it's a possible answer, but I'm assuming it would be. Is there anything else that's not going to mean I have to take out a mortgage on my house?
Thanks in advance for your help.
cheers,
Bernard

Answer:Drawing on a tablet with simultaneous display on the tablet and a Windows PC

I assume you mean you want to use an app on a standard tablet such as a Nexus 7 or IPad and stream the tablet screen content to a monitor or TV?
Maybe something like this is needed

Does anyone know if there is a program available (free if possible) similar to Quicken (Deluxe) that I could use on my Android Tablet(HP 10 Tablet G2 -2301)? That would keep track of bank accounts and interest earned, and keep track of one stock IRA and interest earned and yearly RMD? And produce reports for that interest earned, etc.? Mainly for using when preparing yearly tax forms.

Hi, I have here a X220 Tablet that seem to have a FAN problem.Often in the last days my CPU temperature is often over 90 CAnd the fan has problem to reduce the temperature.I have also situation that the CPU is going too hot and the tablet switch off! With the CPU tool TPFC.62 I can see that the fan speed is 2300-2500 RPMs.But this seams not enough to be. And now the strange thing:When I disable the graphic adapter ?Intel(R) HD Graphics Family? (Driver 8.15.10.2321) and reboot and do the same thing that I done to get the temperature over 90 C with the intel graphic adapter the temperature is not going over 83 C!!! The fan speed is 3500-3800 RPMs. Can someone helps me with this issue?  

Answer:X220 Tablet FAN Problem - temperature over 90 °C - tablet switch off :(

Hi giciorek,
 
I understand that your fan/temperature problems can be frustrating.  I would try updating your BIOS and also updating Power Manager.  (Some on the forum have tried downloading ThinkPad Fan Control, but that is not an official Lenovo solution.)
 
Download Power Manager here:
 
http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/downloads/detail.page?DocID=DS014924
 
Download BIOS Update here:
 
http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/downloads/detail.page?DocID=DS018805
 
In Power Manager, click Advanced at top right, you can Set Optimize Fan Control to Balance All Parameters under Battery Settings.  Set it to Reduce Noise Dynamically under AC.
 
Let me know if this helps.

I have upgraded my X201 Tablet to Windows 10 32bit. As far as I can tell, everything is working, including the WACOM drivers and touchscreen.  Wireless has worked perfectly so far, not sure about Bluetooth as I don't use it. My only issue is that the buttons on the display do not work. The power button located on the display does work. I tried installing the Tablet Button Driver II and it will go through the install but the buttons do not work.  This is the download link:http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/downloads/ds027627 The document claims Windows 10 compatability and was Last Updated :08 Jun 2015. On inspection, all the files extracted are dated from 2012 and when trying to manually run the software Windows throws up an error that the software is not supported on this PC.   I removed and reinstalled and noted that the driver information page when running the installer does NOT have Windows 10 listed as a supported system. My assumption is that the driver that they have linked on the download page is NOT the most current driver and is infact the driver for Windows 7 from 2012. Does anyone know how to contact Lenovo to get the correct driver posted to the page, or know of an alternate source to try and find it?

I have a new X220 Tablet, and the Pen and Tablet functions work perfectly out of the box as long as the unit is on the Ultrabase. As soon as I remove from the Ultrabase (or boot while not connected), the Pen & Tablet functions stop working. Conversely, if I dock the X220, the Pen & Tablet functions begin working again. The behavior is the same regardless of whether I have an external monitor attached or not. Any thoughts?

I have upgraded to Windows 8 64 bit on my X61 Tablet, however I cannot get the tablet buttons, hotkeys, or auto-rotation to work. My understanding is that Lenovo has stopped supporting these products. I think it is a shame to stop using a perfectly working tablet PC with a superior LCD. I don't want to go back to Win 7 leaving all kinds of nice features on Windows 8. Any suggestions? Is there a hope? Koray

Answer:X61 Tablet Windows 8 - Tablet Button and Features Request

Hi koray,
 
I've been playing around with Windows 8 since the developers preview.  I've ran it on a lot of older systems.  Getting things to work will require some experimentation on your part.  
 
You can start with your Driver Matrix.  There you can find the Hotkeys Utility for Windows 8.  You will also need the Power Manager Driver for Windows 8.  Not Power Manager,  just the Power Manager Driver.  
 
Run Windows Update, it will probably find some stuff.  Some Windows 7 drivers will work, others won't.  
 
I'm running Windows 8 Pro on an x60 tablet and everything works fine.  I also have it on an x61 non-tablet and it runs fine. I had to do a lot of messing around with stuff to get them to work right though. 
 
Just make sure that you set system restore points before changing anything so you can get back what you had before, just in case something doesn't work right.  And, only install one thing at a time and reboot and test it out thoroughly before you install something else.  
 
Good luck with this,
 
Dave

I'm new to the Tablet community but excited to venture into it.  My workplace provided me with an X201 Tablet type 2985 model C5U.  The pen works great but I can emulate any of the finger/touch demos.  Is this not supported with my type or model?  Or do I need a special driver.  When I open the tablet PC settings, I'm given the option to identify my screen as PEN or TOUCH.  While I select TOUCH, no finger combination (one or two) that presses my screen will invoke anything.  I was hoping this would be a touch solutoin albeit more powerful than the iPad.  Appreciate your responses everyone. Thank you. L

So the DV port on my asus eee pc 1005peb is failing, and got the idea from android central to look into tablet and tablet hybrids. I kind of like the idea of having a hybrid for both the netbook kind of experience combined with a tablet experience. I'm having trouble discovering what my brands and model options are for that type of device. I'm concerned from what little I have seen so far I'm going to be against a cost prohibitive wall compared to spending $100 to have the port replaced. I'm one to figure if I'm going to toss that kind of cash into a repair I might as well consider replacing it with something else instead of doing the repair.
For my desktop PC I hesitant on going to windows 8 because of a lot of negative stuff I've heard but at the same time I hear good stuff about it too. But when it comes to a portable device like my netbook and a tablet. I think hm windows 8 (not RT) sounds like it would be a good fit since it is designed for both traditional mouse and keyboard input and touchscreen input. Plus I would like to retain the software I use on my netbook to use on whatever replaces it. Something I can't do with my current HP touchpad with webOS and android (CM9) on it. I tried using both as a replacement for my netbook but in the end there were just too many things I didn't like about that. I let my dad take my netbook out of town with him for about 2 month and was trying to use the touchpad as a replacement. I was glad to have my netbook back to use it again.

I'm wondering it it's possible to use the functionalities of tablet PCs (the Tablet PC Input Panel to write and holding a left click to right click) in a non-tablet PC.

I know, it doesn't sound practical, but my Genius tablet doesn't have an option to use the Tablet PC feature, so I want to know if there's a way to "force" Tablet PC (or a third party program that lets me use the "hold the left click to right click" feature of Tablet PC), even if Windows sees my tablet as just a mouse and not a Tablet PC compatible tablet.
