I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hello, I've got a problem with my Integrated Camera drivers/ Audio drivers. I believe the driver should be for the integrated camera, as microphone is on the same board. Anyway, after switching to Windows 10, my microphone stopped working. I've downloaded the driver from the website but the installation was stopped by either message "This app doesn't work on Windows10" or "Device not found" (I assume the microphone as the camera works.) When I go to skype settings and choose the microphone, the field is stated as "NONE" . Could someone give me information about what is going on, as it is really annoying? Thanks

I reset my yoga 12 to factory settings and upgraded to windows 10. After booting up I removed a bunch of bloatware and I think I removed something important because I just noticed that there is no microphone in the device manager. How do I get it back?

Answer:Thinkpad yoga 12 - No microphone installed - windows 10

Hey, I have this problem too, sort of. I've had my yoga 12 for about a month now and the internal microphone is no longer showing up in the device manager. Not only that, but my computer won't even detect an external microphone. I don't know that it's a problem with something you deleted (at least assuming we are having the same problem) because I didn't do that. I know this is a long way of saying I have no idea how to help you, but at least you know you aren't the only one? I've tried reinstalling drivers and I can't think of what else to do.

Hello,My microphone has not worked since i bought this laptop over a year ago, but it has not become a problem until recently for me. Initially no Conexant devices were discoverable in audio decivesI tried uninstalling and reinstalling the conexant driver, and the only progress that has been made is that a conexant external microphone is now visible (which i do not own). How can i make the internal mic discoverable? / do i need to use some other device like realtek?Thank you!!!Duncan (again, windows 10)

Hello I bought a Yoga X1 last year and it was working fine until about 3 weeks ago. For unknown reasons - possibly because of some Windows 10 update or because I installed a "nightly built" of the VLC video player the touchscreen stopped working. Windows 10 could not find a driver anymore (claiming that the driver it found is not suitable for this version of windows or womething like that). Same happened with the Lenovo driver for the device from the Lenovo website. I always hat the device marked yellow and "not working properly" in the device manager. I finally found in a forum aomeone pointing to a different driver for the Xoga X1's Wacom device and installed it. Now it shows up in the Device manager without Problems, but I still have no touch functionality. I deinstalled VLC alread and updated Win 10 again - still no luck. do I need some additional driver to connect the device that is recognized in the Device manager with Windows 10 somehow? Or activate it? I booted from a USB rescue stick for Win 10 and there the touch functionality was ok - so its not a hardware issue! Thank you.

I've just recently recieved my brand new Thinkpad Yoga, and everything seems to be ok except the microphone. Under Recording Devices of Windows 8.1, the meter is showing no activitiy even with the boost and volume turned right up. Apps like Skype etc are showing no audio being received either. I've uninstalled the audio drivers completely and reinstalled which has made no difference. The driver reports that everything is ok too. I ran through the windows audio troubleshooting tool which reports no issues as well though it is clearly not working. Any suggestions of have I received an expensive duff laptop?

I purchased a Thinkpad S3 Yoga 14 with pen. I've upgraded to Windows 10 using a clean install. However, nothing happens when I move the pen over the screen. Any suggestions how to get the pen to work? I have of course put the battery in the pen.In the Control Panel the "Pen and Touch" and "Wacom Pen" options are available.Device Manager shows no unrecognized devices. Under "Human Interface" it displays the "Wacom Device" which has as status "device is working properly".So it's like the laptop and pen aren't 'linked'. Should I somehow connect them like you would do for bluetooth devices? Update: I've also installed the Wacom feel driver from http://us.wacom.com/en/feeldriver. This made no difference. Also downloaded the Wacom Hardware Check from the same webpage, which responds with: "You have hardware that is compatible with the Wacom FEEL driver. You can download the latest driver here: http://www.wacom.com/feeldriver".Next, I installed the WinTab Driver, which also made no difference, from here: http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/downloads/ds041384.

Hello people! Last time I went  to US, I've bought this machine from Amazon: Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga Signature Edition - 12.5" 2-in-1 Touchscreen Notebook PC - Intel i5 Haswell / 8GB RAM / 128GB SSD / WiFi / Webcam / Windows 8.1 - Black I love it! At least until two weeks ago... after a windows/lenovo update things starts to be really hard. My keyboard and mousepad simple don't work anymore, totally unresponsive. If I hit "del" to access the bios, the keyboard does work, after that, when windows is loading and fully loaded, I've got only the "tablet" mode.  The only thing that works correctly is the touchscreen, as it only recognize itself as a tablet, not as a ultrabook. The screen also rotates automatacly when windows is fully loaded, so I have to use the tent mode with an external usb keyboard/mouse or type in the screen keyboard... I leave in Brazil, got in contact with lenovo suport team here, after a lot of procedures, that didn't solve the problem, they told me to get in contact with lenovo US and ask for an original dvd recovery. Is there anyone with a different approach to solve this problem?

I just got a brand new Lenovo Thinkpad Yoga 14 and the touchscreen was working great, but once I installed my Wacom Cintiq 12wx onto the laptop, the touchscreen completely stopped working. It seems like the laptop is confused on whether to use the wacom or the laptop as a tablet and I really want them to both work simultaneously. Has anyone else been able to get their laptop to work with a tablet? Any help would be greatly appreciated since this is the second thinkpad yoga 14 ive gotten since the first one did the same thing and I first assumed it was a computer issue.

Answer:Getting Thinkpad Yoga 14 to work with Wacom Tablet...

Hi banana74
Welcome to the forums.
 
Can you please post the full model number of your TP Yoga 14? are you using Windows 10 (64bits)?
 
I have tried my TP Y 14 with a Wacom Bamboo and I have no problem using both, the touchscreen with the Thinkpad Pen Pro and the Wacom Bamboo with his own pen.
Maybe what we can do first is try to update the Wacom drivers of your Thinkpad Yoga from the Lenovo support site of you model.

Hello, I hope anyone can help me here. I did'nt found an answer so far for my problem. I bought the lenovo thinkpad yoga 14 two days ago.

Assuming both are genuine Lenovo. All dimensions except height (which noone bothered to measure) - are the same; even if the 370 battery is slightly higher and won't fit without lower case modification - it's nothing a rotary tool can't fix. 370 battery: 15.28V 51Wh (FRU 01AV433)260 battery: 15.2V 44Wh (FRU 00HW027) Is there any particular reason why it definitely won't work? I'm really on the verge of ordering one and trying for myself, but I'm not sure how does embedded controller (EC) determine if the battery plugged is correct,  and not really want to waste time if the idea is doomed to failure because some technical quirk I am not aware of - hence the question.  Why: while 370 is newer, it has glossy PWM display which ain't bonded with digitizer vs bonded matte PWM-free on 260. 260's weakest spot, on the other hand, is poor battery life - larger 370 battery could definitely resolve this problem. I'm bored until newer Thinkpads are introduced at CES 2018 anyway - so why not give it a try, if there is any chance it may work.

Hello all, apologies if this is a duplicate issue, but my searches did not turn anything up. I just received my new TPY a couple of days ago and have been happily installing software. Today was the first time I really tried using my digitizer pen, as I finally had time to open Photoshop and Illustrator. In doing so, however, I discovered pen calibration is completely messed up for the top edge of the screen. I tested it outside of the Adobe programs and the same problems occur there. I have already gone in and tried recalibrating my pen more than once using the calibration tools in the Control Panel. Is this a known issue that I just need a driver update for or is this a hardware issue? Any help is appreciated. Thanks,Erika

Hey everyone! I purchased the Thinkpad Yoga 14 around mid-July and love it, but I can't use the pen's erase button in Onenote 2013. It wasn't working in Photoshop for a while, either. It works with every other Office program that supports pen input (word, excel, powerpoint, etc.) I did some research, and read a few comments that said Windows 10 fixes the issue with the erase button.  I upgraded to Windows 10 today, and while the erase button works in Photoshop now, it still isn't working in Onenote. I'm at a loss here. I can't figure out how to fix this for the life of me, and nothing else I come across online has been helpful. Does anyone know how to fix this??? I use Onenote to thumbnail drawing concepts and comic pages; so, I do a ton of sketching and am using the eraser every few minutes. Not having access to a quick erase button is really frustrating.  Edit: Nevermind. I figured it out on my own. For whatever reason, I had to go to the pen control panel and tick the box "Use the top of the pen to erase ink (where applicable)". That seems to have fixed the issue.

Hi dudeguy Can you post your full Thinkpad Model number and the Windows version you are using? I don't have an S1, but touch screen is always working, no matter if it is on tablet mode, tent mode , or laptop mode..maybe the touchscreen should only be disabled when the lid is closed or the screen is turned off. It is very strange that it get disabled when you turn it to tablet mode. Just some "trial and error".- Check Windows Update and try to put any drivers up-to-date.- Try updating the drivers with Lenovo System Update- If you are using Windows 10 try install Lenovo Settings and Lenovo Companion from the Windows Store. I was trying to find something in Windows settings "Pen and Touch" that can disabled the Touch-screen in that way, but I haven't found anything. Regards

Hi Community!
 
Today I bought my very first Thinkpad (Thinkpad Yoga). Unfortunately I do seem to be too think to use it properly...
 
I cannot figure out, how to enable the touchpad. I do not think it is broken or something, because the trackpoint and all buttons and also two finger swipe for scrolling work fine. I just cannot move the mouse cursor with the touchpad.
 
I the driver setting screen the touchpad and all its options are greyed out, too (see screenshot).
 
Does anyone have any idea, what I may be doing wrong?
 
Thanks a lot!

Answer:Thinkpad Yoga 13 Touchpad is disabled - Scrolling & Gestures work

Has anyone ever made headway on this issue? I'm having the same problem. Scrolling and gestures are recognized, but moving the cursor and tap-to-click are nonfunctional. It's essentially stuck permanently in trackpoint-only mode, and the option to switch back has literally dissapeared. It started intermittently (would sometimes "fix itself" on restarting) but now the problem appears permanent and updating drivers does not solve the issue.

My Thinkpad s3 Yoga 14 laptop stuck on mute. The soundbar to the right displays mute and the soundbar itself won't go away. On startup the mute LED light keeps flickering. The laptop lags and I have to go to task manager to End the processes "Thinkpad Message Client Loader" and and "Thinkpad message Receiver for Shortcut Hot Keys" for the the laptop to stop lagging (CPU is 100% on startup for some reason which may account for the reason of lagging). I have updated every driver with Driver Easy and Lenovo System Update. I have tried disabling then renabling and rolling back audio drivers but to no avail. I even uninstalled then reinstalled audio drivers. I have also gone to volume mixer, playback devices and recording devices but according to it the speaker works fine. I tried adjusting the volume in volume mixer but it keeps coming back down just as always.  The main problem is that the sound is stuck on mute and I just want it resolved. I have gone through days searching through Lenovo forums on what to do.

I was having responsiveness issues with the trackpad for a while, then, i open my laptop one day and it's completely unresponsive, as well has the backlit keyboard not working (the hotkey still pops up that it's "lighting up" the keyboard, but no actual lights) and the trackpoint being completely unresponsive too. I've tried:- Restarting computer- Using Lenovo's various "fixing" softwares- Looking for a keyboard firmware shortcut for enabling/disabling trackpad, (doesn't exist on this computer)- Re installing drivers (Ultranav driver refuses to install manually, "driver installation failed")- Booting on a non microsoft OS (Booted on a linux Mint installation and it still doesn't work)- Booting into BIOS and looking for "enable/disable trackpad option", That option does not exist for me.- Opening up computer and checking the physical connection, All plugged in fine. When i open the device manager in windows there is no entry for the mouse whatsoever. The touch screen and the pen both work fine. I think it all points towards a hardware issue, i can pick up another trackpad on ebay for pretty cheap, but obviously i'd like to make sure that it would actually solve the issues.  The major confusion for me is that why would faulty trackpad hardware stop the backlit keyboard from lighting up? How are the two linked? Any ideas appreciated, Thanks!

I've had my thinkpad Edge 531 for about five months now, but this problem has always been there. In several applications (skype, youcam, sound recorder) the microphone would spontaneously go from being clear to inaudibly quiet and unclear. I have had this issue calling multiple and in talking to myself in test files. The volume I speak at has no impact on the issue, skype's volume is set to maximum with automatic volume adjustment shut off. Microphone settings within windows sound settings are also set to maximum with the maximum mic boost. None of this seems to help anything. I uninstalled the Lenovo communications utility completely as well. With all that said, I sent my laptop in to get this problem fixed. They replaced the palmrest,  the power input, and some part of the motherboard, according to the sheet. It also was bricked within 12 hours of me getting it back (!!!), and the mic problem was still not fixed. I returned it to them again to be ressurected with a detailed explanation of the problem and the mic isue still hasn't been fixed. Apparently they are convinced it's a software issue since they aren't replacing the mic, so to be sure- am I incompetent, am I missing something? Is anyone else having trouble with the Thinkpad edge mics? I know I could just buy an external mic, but it's the principle of the thing. It's the least they could do after returning the machine to me broken.

Hello there,After experiencing dropping network connections under Windows XP I've upgraded to Windows 7. The laptop is running nicely, and everything is working (including audio), except the microphone. This is a little frustrating as I use Skype for work.When I look the recording devices, the microphone is listed as currently unavailable:No devices appear to be disabled in the device manager:When I first installed Windows 7, it was a bit of a struggle getting some programs up and running. Audio was an issue, and I believe the drivers came down via Windows update (although I also tried installing the ones from the Lenovo website so I'm not sure now which actually worked).I'm at a loss for what else to do, except go back to Windows XP - but I'm reluctant to do this as Windows 7 is working a lot better than I expected and fixed the previous problem with wireless networking via different PCMCIA cards. Any thoughts as to what else I can try?Thanks in advance for any advice you can offer!Regards,Stu.

Answer:Microphone not working in Windows 7 - Thinkpad X22 2662 95G

hey moonklash,welcome to the forums.via device manager, uninstall the audio driver. this will then make windows install its own generic driver.once generic driver has been installed, test your mic and see if it works.if it does and the audio is fine, you can leave it as it is or you could head over to http://support.lenovo.com and install the audio driver that is available here.

Answer:Thinkpad W510 internal microphone not working - windows 7

Hi Nakul,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
I?m sorry to hear that internal microphone in your Lenovo ThinkPad W510 is not working properly.
 
Check if microphone is enabled in the Bios, under security, IO port access or in windows through control panel, sound, recording, select microphone. If you right-click on the microphone, you can select Properties and you'll be able to adjust all the settings for it. Make sure that the volume is at a decent level. In the advanced tab, try changing the default format and check.
 
Hope this helps!
 
Best regards,
Mithun.

Hoping maybe someone can help me here because I am at a loss.

For the life of me, I cannot get a microphone to work on my computer anymore. Plug in or USB. At one point or another they worked, but then suddenly stopped. I've tried disabling/uninstalling all microphones and reinstalling/re-enabling and nothing has worked. The only thing that ever worked was the microphone on my webcam, which I uninstalled to see if there was interference.

I have an ASUS Xonar DSX sound card with the front panel connector plugged into it. This problem also existed with no sound card and using onboard sound. I've plugged in an Insignia USB microphone, which worked for a little time but now it won't work.

All things I've tried have shown up in device manager and on Recording Devices. I'm getting no green bars for the microphone no matter how I set it up. The best idea I can see on what may be wrong is on this screenshot. As you can see, the Wave device under Recording is showing bars that are changing with the speaker output. I've seen this sort of behavior when I've tried other things, where the speaker output is being 'emulated' by a recording device.

Anyone have any ideas?

Hi.
 
My Windows 8 laptop has a mic built in, which always worked fine. I also have a mic I can plug in which always automatically worked when plugged in.
 
However, a few days ago I plugged it in and nothing happened. It still works on my desktop. I haven't changed any settings.
 
I bought a headset. This works fine on my desktop, but not on my laptop. I have sound through the headphones, but the mic isn't working.
 
When I look at the audio devices it doesn't show, although I'm not sure it used to show the other mic either. I've clicked to unhide other devices, still doesn't show. I tried going to add a device but it doesn't find anything.
 
I tried troubleshooting, but it finds no issues.
 
For some reason the built in mic did stop working but that is now working again. I didn't change anything. However, the headset mic still isn't doing anything.

Hi danielmb007 It took me some time to stabilize Windows 10 on the TPY 14 (20DM008UUS). I went into a "driver updating rampage" for it and I have it stabilized right now. This are my tips to update the drivers on my Thinkpad Yoga, but you can decide how deep you want to go for driver updating:1) Try first Windows Update and update all the drivers and Patches2) Try Lenovo System Update to get any new/missing drivers.3) Try to install Lenovo Settings and Lenovo Companion from the Windows App Store, Lenovo Companion also has a "update driver search"4) Sometimes all that software does not recognize some updated / missing driver. Check Lenovo's Support Site and search for your specific model drivers. This will be the Lenovo supported drivers, but if you want to look for other update drivers directly from the manufacturer (AS IS) you can try:5) Depending on the machine chipset/processor, you can try Intel Driver Update Utility, or AMD Update Utility.6) I also like to use DriverEasy, which offers a a decent driver update recognition for free, but also tries to sell you the full version. Just be warned that the drivers that are not from the Lenovo support site are "AS IS" and under your own risk, I install them since I'm confortable installing, and un-installing Windows drivers, remember that a wrong driver may turn up Windows un-usable. Regards

I uninstalled the windows 8.1 that came with my Thinkpad Yoga to installe windows 7 64-bit because there was no support for Power Manager ( a tool that allows you to charge your battery only upto a certain percentage (eg 40%) which helps reduce battery aging when the notebook is mostly operated on AC power).Doing that required me to fully clean the Hard-disk during the installation process.I installed almost all of the drivers available on  http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/products/laptops-and-netbooks/thinkpad-yoga-series-laptops/thinkpad-...for thinkpad yoga and windows 7 64 bit.Happily, this provided me the Power manager, and I can use it just as I wanted.However, all these has brought in additional issues which are listed below:  1. The touch pad right click doesn't work. Only two finger tap works as right click.2. The touch pad gestures for zoom and scroll doesn't work at all.3. The screen auto-rotate doesn't work.4. The touch screen gesture for zoom doesn't work. I did install the ultra-nav and screen-rotate drivers, but I get error messages regarding synaptics ... not working and also sensor driver not working during the windows startup. Any help please? Thank you.  

Answer:Issues with Thinkpad yoga on Windows 7 64-bit

Follow up: After going through windows update and installing windows 7 service pack 1, some of the issues have been resolved. The screen auto rotates based on device orientation. The two finger scroll and zoom works on the touchpad. The physical right click still doesn't work. (The two finger tap for right-click is working). One important feature that I still find mssing is that the two finger pinch to zoom doesn't work on the Touchscreen (it works in Touchpad though). So, when I am browsing websites on Tablet mode, there is no way to zoom in! Thanks.

I'd like to ask about your experience with updating your 2nd generation Thinkpad Yoga 12 laptops from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10. I've seen the black screen problem described, that seems to be an issue with the Synaptics driver and hopefully has been fixed with the current latest release of the synaptics driver from the synaptics site.  According to the discussion thread here anyway. But have you encountered any other issues?  Has Windows 10 been a positive upgrade for battery life?  Any tips on steps before upgrading, such as any driver incompatibility and setting up a back-up? My Yoga 12 is the variety with an i5 5300U and a "hybrid" 16GB SSD + 500GB HDD. Thanks!

Hi to all.

I purchase a Satellite A200-1MB and when i install Windows XP everything was ok except a little problem:
The microphone does not work.

I installed all drivers correctly but the problem is the same.
I have read on internet that many A200-1MB owners have the same problem.

Does any one knows how can i solve the problem?
Thanks

Answer:Satellite A200-1MB microphone does not work on Windows XP

It is very strange. I have installed WXP SP2 on Satellite U300. it is the same notebook but little smaller and in my case cam and mic works well. I have tested it with Skype. The sound quality is not so good but it works.

Do you try to test it with Skype too? Have you checked sound options?

Welcome myousaf42 to the windows 7 forum.

What you need to do is to use another computer and go to the hp site for your laptop support and download the drivers
for your wireless network card. put it on a flash drive and then install it on your laptop.
should work fine.

You were able to get on here so I assume you have another computer to use to download the drivers.

Hello All, here is a good one:  (Maby a MOD will give this to development to take a look at this, unless someone hasseen this before????....) I have Several Thinkpad Yogas (20CDCTO1WW), After installing Win10 1607 & Microsoft Office (tried 2010 - 2016)All experience the same problem. If you open MS Word (Or Excel) Click insert, then select object, select object type - Microsoft Equation 3.0 & selectok, you cannot select any symbols.  When Clicking any button, it is like the calibration is way off.If you click the title bar to move the equation symbols, the bar moves down and to the left. I have confirmed this is something to do with the Windows 10 1607 & the Yoga.  The previous version of Win 10 itworked properly.  I also tried this on various models of Desktops  & Win 10 1607 and it works properly. I have tried different drivers, versions of Word, BIOS,  external mouse, but it makes no difference,  It has something to do with Win 10 1607 (Build 14393.222) & Yoga or so it seems. Maybe some type of driver issue?, if anyone has any clues I would appreciate it.           Thanks in advance!

I just bought my yoga 12 thinkpad with windows 10 and the mouse has just stopped working/disappears. i have tried messing with the drivers, and I've uninstalled and reinstalled the Point Device Driver from Synoptics multiple times. Its giving me a code 10 on the driver (I believe meaning it can't talk to the rest of the computer) and everytime I try to update the drivers nothing happens (i think because I just downloaded the driver off the website). Any help would be greatly appreciated!  Thanks,  Patrick

Hello everybody, do you know where we can get the Windows product key when we buy a Lenovo laptop?I do not think that it is written on a sticker or paper document when people buy a LENOVO product.Lenovo laptops are provided (as many laptops) with a pre-install windows version, and no DVD is provided.No DVD, so no key...  I will buy the new Thinkpad Yoga 12" model, and i will have to reinstall windows 8.1 pro very frequently....I will have a lot of tests to do as an IT professional, and i need to reinstall Windows.This laptop is provided (as many laptops) with a pre-install windows version, and no DVD is provided. I saw that we can reinstall windows 8 by using the 'RESET YOUR PC' windows 8 feature, especially if we are not able to start windows.But at the end of the process, we have to enter the Windows product key.... even if is not mentioned in the lenovo user guide   (http://download.lenovo.com/pccbbs/mobiles_pdf/yoga_12_ug_en.pdf) Below instructions from the LENOVO user guide (p106) : 1. Turn on or restart the computer. Before the Windows operating system starts, repeatedly press the F12 key. The Boot Menu window opens. 2. Select the recovery drive as the boot device. 3. Select a preferred language and then select a preferred keyboard layout. 4. Click Troubleshoot to display the optional recovery solutions. 5. Select a corresponding recovery solution according to your situation. For example, select Reset your PC if you want to reset your... Read more

Answer:Where to find the Windows product key - new Thinkpad Yoga

Hi,
 
You don't need to know the key.  It will be picked up during install automatically as long as you're installing the same version that shipped with the machine.  Either Lenovo or Microsoft media will work.
 
The key is not required during reset, nor is it required when installing from Microsoft media.
 
Do make your recovery media when you get your machine
 
Z.
