Thinkpad Yoga digitizer does not work near edge of screen

Question: Thinkpad Yoga digitizer does not work near edge of screen

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 guys, perhabs you know a solution before i'm contacting the lenovo support. My intigrated Wacom digitizer pen does not react with the Touchpad, also there is no Wacom/Pen device below the Human Interface at the device manager. I tried to: - clean installed the IOS- installed all necessary driver from the Lenovo homepage/ + with Thinkpad System Update- tried to install the digtizer Firmware but then this error message always appears (attachment)   Yes, battery is charged and ac adapter is connected

Answer:Thinkpad Yoga digitizer doesn't work

Hello. I got my Thinkpad Yoga. My problem is, that the Digitizer Pen function is now ok (after a lot of work with drivers,...), but it doesn't function in the Tablet Modus? The actually drivers are installed. The pen function is ok. But only in the "Notebook-Modus". I tested it.. when I am turning the Notebook in the Tablet-Modus AND THE KEYBOARD IS INSIDE, the pen function doesn't work and I have to reboot. When I reboot in the Tablet Modus it also doesn't work. CAN SOMEONE HELP ME PLEASE????????? Thank you soooo much. David

I am looking for a laptop that is compatible with a digitizer pen for drawing on the screen. Does the 10 point touch version of Thinkpad P51  and Thinkpad X1 Yoga come wiht digitizer pens?

I've seen several threads about this issue, but none that address my specific concern.
 
I have a ThinkPad Yoga 14. It did not come with a digitizer pen included. However, I suspect that the screen does in fact have a Wacom digitizer layer. My rationale is this:
 

My computer came pre-installed with the Wacom Pen Calibration Software
Device Manager reports the following HID devices:-- HID-compliant digitizer-- HID-compliant pen-- Wacom Device
When I run the Wacom Hardware Check (available here), it reports "You have hardware compatible with the Wacom FEEL driver."
All of the 20DM008 models listed at http://psref.lenovo.com/Product/179 support the active pen (I cannot find the 20DM008U++ model there for some reason)

However, the computer will not recognize the ThinkPad digitizer pen I purchased.
 
So, I suppose I have three questions:
 

Am I just misinterpreting what I am seeing in the Device Manager?
Is it possible that Lenovo installs the Wacom screen on all it's tablets, but disables them somehow on models not marketed as digitizer ready?
If so, is there any way for me to enable my screen to allow for digitizer use?

Answer:ThinkPad Yoga 14 - Digitizer Pen

Good day.
 
Looking at the models that support pen at the PSREF link you included, please notice that it specifies "Active Pen". This is not the same as the ThinkPad Digitizer Pen. That's why it won't work for you.
 
You need the newer, AAAA battery-powered Active Pen. Apologies, but I don't have a link for it.
 
Edit to add: Have a look at this - https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/documents/acc100178Please see the Compatibility section for important info.

Hi, After working out that my laptop (Thinkpad Yoga S1) most likely has a digitizer, I purchased a pen for it. However, since I wasn't 100% sure, I bought a cheaper, off-brand pen that people said was compatible, the listing for which can be found here. I received it today, but my computer seems unresponsive when I try to use it. When I went to Wacom Pen or Pen and Touch Input, the pen calibration screens were either blank (Wacom) or didn't load (Input). Is there something else I have to do to make my pen work? Did I purchase the wrong pen? If it helps, the pen slot on my computer is still plugged; I was going to unplug it, but to do so I'd have to remove the back paneling, and one of the screws keeping it in place has been stripped. The thread confirming that my laptop has a digitizer is here.Thanks!

Answer:Thinkpad Yoga digitizer pen

Hi
 
Please notice that this is my personal opinon and it does not mean I'm 100% right, this is based on my experience.
 
I think that the "Digitizer PEN for Lenovo ThinkPad X60 X61 X200 X201" is for older Thinkpad models. I have a Thinkpad Yoga 14 (Similar to S1) (20DM008UUS) and it has a digitizer screen, but it requires an "active pen" (with batteries inside) to be able to work with the digitizer.
 
I have the Thinkpad Pen Pro and it works fine with my model. I still think you have a digitizer on your laptop but I think it is the wrong pen.
 
Here it also some more info about the pen that Amy wrote.
 
Regards.

Hey, does anybody know which pens are compatible with the Yoga 460?For me the pen tip feels a bit too hard on the display. I've had the Note 10.1 2014 with a better Pen and bought a Lenovo stylus. But they were passive digitizers...

Answer:ThinkPad Yoga 260 & 460 Digitizer

Hi, welcome to the forums.
 
I can only talk from my experience.  I have ThinkPad Pen Pro 4X80H34887 on my Thinkpad Yoga 14 ( 20DM008UUS ).
http://shop.lenovo.com/us/en/itemdetails/4X80H34887/460/41E9A3C3FB5A45A9AC47C56812E4188C
 
For what I know (I may be wrong) the Pen Pro uses Wacom technology, it has a battery inside. I found it very nice with a nice size... but it depends on personal taste.
 
Can you post the full model number of the computer you want to check it will work with the pen?
I know that the Thinkpad Pen Pro web page may not say much. So, what I saw it was recomended on this forum was:
1) Check your computer model against the PSRef Books: http://psref.lenovo.com/
See if your model is listed with "Active Pen" support.
 
2) There is more information about the Thinkpad Pen Pro here: https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/documents/acc100178
 
There is also the Thinkpad Yoga Pen , but I don't have experience with that one, some amazon review says it does not have batteries and it focus for replacement for Thinkpad Yoga that came with pen... but I don't know.
 
Regards.

Hi, Could somebody please point me to the place where it list the digitizer in the Thinkpad Yoga as a Wocom? I see it all over in review sites, but I can't find it in the description or the product specifications. I'm interested in this model:20CD00AVUS, which I know includes a digitizer, but I want to make sure its definitely Wacom... they all just say "digitizer". So I guess what I am trying to figure out is:1. Are ALL digitizers installed in Thinkpad Yoga's the same, or do they vary in brand/quality?2. How can I find out if its a Wacom? Thanks for the help.  

Answer:Thinkpad Yoga - Wacom Digitizer?

First off the digitizer technology consists of two parts the digitizer enabled screen and the digitizer pen. Second i'd say all the TPYs have the same digitizer Technology (both screen and pen) licensed from Wacom. So the pen itself is probably prdouced by Lenovo or a third party. --- By the way other products like the Surface Pro, Vaio Duo or Galaxy Note have the same technology built in and you can use there respective digitizer pens for the TPY as well.

Answer:Thinkpad Yoga w/ active digitizer

They are only available on Lenovo's website as far as I've seen. I tried looking other places like Amazon, too, but haven't seen the digitizer model. I ended up buying one directly.

Hi everyone. I am looking to buy a laptop for university (studying engineering). I would like something that is durable, and powerful. Thats why I am looking into getting the Thinkpad Yoga. I love the convertable and compact feel, as well as the SSD that I will be getting with it.  However, another reason why I wanted to get it is because of the 'Active Digitzer'. I didn't even know what this was called since a week ago, and I still cant seem to understand what this feature will allow me to do? How does the Digitzer benefit me? Especially when I compare it to the Yoga Pro 2 (even tough that also has a touchscreen). Am I unable to draw on a YP2? Would I not be able to draw on the screen? I want to use it mainly when I use Adobe Illutrator. Is the Digitzer option worth the extra money I have to pay? With that feature added on, I will be paying almost $2000 :s 

Answer:Thinkpad Yoga: Is it worth it and Digitizer?

Hi there: I have been using X230T, a predessor of Thinkpad Yoga. X230T also comes with a digitizer. I bought X23)T also for a reason: I can take note during class. I am not an engineer but a finance student. 1. You might want an Active Digitizer because it allows you to write on-screen. Use Microsoft One Note. Your computer can replace your pen and paper.2. You can still draw on YP2. But what do you feel when you use your finger, say your pointer, as a pen  YP2 does not have a digitizer pen. 3. The pen I believe is included. You do not have to pay extra unless you want to have a spare one. 4. I think Lenovo Thinkpad has lost its quality legacy from IBM. I do not like the new layout of the keyboard (I like the trackpoint but the moust click now share with the trackpad. It is just ridiculous. You cannot have an accurate click with it (for me))5. Just look at the Microsoft new Surface pro 3. You might like it! If the next time I upgrade my computer, I would by a Surface pro instead of the Thinkpad.   Cheers

Hello, I just received my new shiny TPY (again). The first time I got it, the digitizer wasn't working. After a bit of research I realized that it probably was a hardware issue (No digitizer, pen or wacom device in device-manager). So I send it back.The mainboard got replaced and today I have my machine back. It was all working fine including the digitizer.But from one minute to the other it stopped working and I can't find any wacom or digitizer devices in the device-manager.Now my first thought was, that the Windows updates messed something up, so I've done a rollback but it's still not working.Am I doing something wrong or is it a hardware issue again? Thanks for advance.Robinhuett

Answer:ThinkPad Yoga - Digitizer is not working

Hello. It isn't a Hardware Problem. It seems to be a software problem after Windows 8.1 Update. I have the same problem :-( When I start the PC it works perfect, until I used it as Tablet. After that the Digitizer Pen didn't work. So I reinstalled all drivers. After that the pen worked.. so I tested it again as Tablet, after that. the Digitizer Pen didn't work. Now I installed all drivers again but the Pen didn't worked. It is a big problem at Lenovo, because Lenovo has problems with the pen software a long time. It is soooo sad because I love the Thinkpad Yoga but with this Problem the price isn't acceptable. So I am going to send it back and wait for the Surface Pro 3. Because Thinkpad stands for the perfect Business Notebook and now... Lenovo has with the digitizer pen more problems than all others. And this is very sad :-(

There is a side button on the digitiser pen, which you can use for eraser function.

I also read that the full HD screens does have te digitizer. So, I'm getting confused...: my yoga does have the full HD but does not come with the pen included!There is no clear information anywhere and also the Lenovo  support (I called on the phone many times) is not satisfactive on this.Does anyone have the same model, or have a more clear idea on this topic?Thanks!Giulia

Answer:Thinkpad Yoga 12: digitizer? (20DL000SIX)

Hi giulsi
 
I also agree with you on this subject. There is much confusion with the "pens" on Thinkpad Yogas.
I think that Lenovo should specify better on the webpage (shop) which Thinkpad Yoga came with Active Pen, and on the Pen pages (also on the shop page) they should specify which models apply for it, and where to search if you computer has support for it.
 
How to know if you Thinkpad Yoga is Pen Compatible?
For the moment one thing that works to know if your Thinkpad is "Pen Compatible" is to search on the PSRef books.
http://psref.lenovo.com/
or
http://psref.lenovo.com/Book
 
I searched your model:
http://psref.lenovo.com/Detail/ThinkPad_Yoga_12?M=20DL000S%2B%2B
It says it has:

Pen
Digitizer pen

So that's good......
There are other models that says "Active Pen".. not sure if that means it only works with the "Thinkpad Pen Pro" or not.
 
How to resolve the question of which pen is good for you?
Thinkpad Yoga Pen suppor page:
https://support.lenovo.com/ec/es/documents/pd030464
It says "The ThinkPad Yoga Pen supports the ThinkPad Yoga." So it may also work.
 
I'm guessing that it will work, but please post back when you get your pen to see if it works with your model.
Regards

Hi, Today (or last night, not sure) three columns of my TPY 460's digitizer seem to have stopped working. Two of them are right next to each other, the third one a little further to the right. (I'm guessing the number of columns by the distance of the small dots that you can see on the display when you look at it from an angle).When I tap the pen onto the two defective columns, nothing happens, when I drag it across, it stops on one side and then jumps to the other. It's similar for the single column, but there isn't a complete stop and a jump, more of a non-linearity, the cursor moves slower, then faster, then slower again. For finger touch, the problem is similar. Is this a common problem that can be fixed by properly plugging  some cables or should I return the computer? (It's a demopool device, so I have no warranty, but I can return it within two weeks without a reason).

I have just purchased the ThinkPad Yoga. I was wondering if there is a way to change what "handedness" you on when using the digitizer pen. I am left handed and the pen is obvioulsy configured to be used with your right hand. So when I write using the pen the writing and the pen tip to not match up like it is supposed to. It matches perfectly if I were to write something with my right hand but when I use my left hand, the writing is off (as in the letters do not match up to where I wanted to write them) Any information on this would be great, kind of anoying for trying to add notes in class.Thanks

Today my digitizer stopped working for the first time since I purchased my Thinkpad Yoga several years ago. Touch screen still works as normal. I don't think it's software related because I dual boot Windows and Ubuntu and it doesn't work in either operating system. Before it would work in both operating systems, and I haven't had any updates since it was last working. Is it possible for the digitizer itself to be broken somehow? I haven't dropped the device or spilled any liquid on it. I've read elsewhere on the forum that the digitizer is powered by a capacitor that is charged within the laptop. Is this still true for Thinkpad Yogas? Are there steps I can take to diagnose the issue?

I have a cracked screen on Yoga 2 13  and i am thinking to replace it. Since warranty is not working I contacted the service centre and they offered the replacment for the price of new laptop. So I said thanks either I will use as it is or find cheaper.  So please help me find the cheaper one which the most importantly fits to my one. I bought it in China (but not there anymore) and as I see the whole screen no. is 73048979. Also it issaid on paper  "13,3 FHD LED TS". I find part no. like B133HAT02.0   or LP133WF2 SP A1. But not the previous one. Can you help with finding the right one. It is frustrating a bit since I am not tech man. I am thinking sending back from here: http://www.365laptoprepair.com/Product/Lenovo-Yoga-2-13-Screen-Only or from ebay where I can find cheaper Chinese one.

I opened my Y2Pro only to find my screen cracked on the left hand side. Other than no touch screen it works fine. From what I understand it's only the digitizer that is cracked. I found a replacement Lenovo digitizer but can't find instructions on how to fix it. Laptop repair 365 has a video on replacing the whole screen. I'm now seeing posts saying the digitizer can't be separated from the lcd...Any help would be appreciated.

Did the earlier models of the thinkpad yogas sold on lenovo.com all come with the wacom digitizers? I've read that all models of the thinkpad yoga sold on lenovo.com came with the wacom digitizer. I ordered a thinkpad yoga off lenovo.com with the 1366x768 screen on Feb 23 and I haven't received it yet. I could've swore that when I chose the screen resolution their was none that specified it came with the pen and wacom digitizer, but now I'm second guessing myself. Now I see that it only comes with the 1920x1080 FHD screen and it that option specifies it has the pen and wacom digitizer. So I'm just wondering if the earlier models from lenovo.com came with the wacom digitizer and they just recently switched it to only available on the 1920x1080. The part # for my computer is listed as 20CDCT01WW.

Hello Summary:I bought a 20CD0001IV about two months ago (Demopool). I need it for work and drawing, but so far I have numerous issues. And right now I'm kinda lost: What should I do? Send a support question to lenovo/IBM EC? Contact my retailer? Are these common problems? I'm also not sure about my warranty. The Lenovo Solution Center says, I still have warranty. The different parts of the website say different things. I'll assume worst case: My warranty is likely expired. I tried:Fresh Installation Windows 8.1, newest drivers, newest Wacom drivers. Tried different settings. Calibration, Pressure Curves, all the stuff. Have 3 different Pens. Searched google, searches this forum... Problems:Massive Ghosting, I know, there is a solution on the forum. It says to replace the old screen with a newer model, but is this possible if the warranty is expired?Calibration is a mess! The digitizer point wobbles under the pen, this is most obvious near the screen border, where straight lines turn into curves. But it's also an issue in the middle of the screen. In some places the cursor is 2mm top left of the actual pen tip, in other places it's bottom right UNDER the pen. I tried all kinds of calibration already... I know about a "dead spot" issue, but this was fixed with a firmware update and my issue is all over the place, not just one spot.The screen is not very solid. Even medium pressure with the pen leads to dark and light display glitches near the tip. Pen press... Read more

Answer:TP Yoga numerous issues with screen and digitizer

I did some more testing with the maximum pressure issue. And it might be related to the pressure level of pens. As far as I know the Yoga supports 1024 levels. I have a new Wacom PL-900 and it has only 512, and the pressure problem is strongest. It is the same with the original Yoga pen, I'd say - even though this should have 1024 levels? But with an old Samsung Series 7 pen I need to press harder to reach 100% pressure - although it is still not really "hard". I'm not entirely sure how many pressure levels the Samsung Slate pen has, thought it was 510, but have seen some reviews mentioning 1024...Anyway, I posted this issue in the wacom forums.

Hi guys I'm an engineering student out to buy one of these computers.The problem is the more I research the more unsure I get. I've never owned aLenovo machine before so I thought i would ask you guys.The Yoga is the 5i, 8RAM, 265GB, ca $300 more than the S430The S430 is the 7i, 8RAM, 500GB.It has to be able to run all of the math programming and chem software, and do it fora few years. But it will also be my main computer and I would like something that is abit consumption friendly. I was also really set on an ultrabook before I saw the S430 asI am really lazy and already have to lugg around a bunch of material.I'm kinda confused as both would meet my needs but I just don't have the experiencewith these machines to make this choice. Thanks for your time!

Answer:Ideapad Yoga or Thinkpad Edge S430

Processor: Yoga uses the U series low voltage and lower speed processors. S430 uses full speed and full voltage processors. Advantage: S430
Graphics: Yoga has integrated graphics; S430 has slightly faster integrated graphics or 620M. Advantage S430.
Connectivity: Yoga has 1 USB 2.0, 1 USB 3.0, HDMI and Card reader; i7 S430 has Thunderbolt, 2 USB 3.0 ports, DisplayPort, miniHDMI, wired ethernet, and card reader. Advantage S430 (Thunderbolt & Display Port are useful).
Keyboard: Yoga has a good keyboard; S430 has trackpoint. Advantage: S430 (unless you don't use trackpoint).
Operating System: Yoga has Win 8; S430 has Win 7. Advantage: Yoga (since you could downgrade to Win 7 if you purchase Win 8 Pro). You should check to see if your school supports Win8.
Display: Yoga has a glossy 1600x900 IPS screen with multitouch; S430 has either 1366x768 glossy screen or 1600x900 non-glossy screen. Advantage: Yoga. (Touch is useful if you run Win8 and IPS and glossy is better for content consumption.)
RAM: Yoga maxes out at 8GB; S430 has 2 DIMM Slots and can be upgraded to 16GB. Advantage: S430.
Mass storage: Yoga has a SSD; S430 has a HDD. Advantage: Yoga (but you could upgrade S430 to SSD after purchase).
Optical Drive: Yoga none; S430 has one. Advantage: S430. (You'll probably be putting lots of engineering software on this thing, so you'll need an optical drive.)
Weight: Yoga 1.54kg; S430 1.8kg. Advantage: Yoga.
Battery: Yoga up to 8hrs; S430 up to 6hrs. Advantage: Yoga.
Wireless: Y... Read more

This week I upgraded my Thinkpad Edge 335 from Win 7 to Win 10. At first it seemed to work fine but quickly I got blue screens ("page fault in nonpaged...). I then found Lenovo's Win 10 website where the E335 is not listed as having been tested for Win 10. Does this mean that it is not compatible? The message I get on the blue screen is not unique for Win 10 if I read the tech fora. I decided to reinstall win 7 again and that works fine. However I cannot run Windows Updates anymore without downloading Win 10!

Answer:Will Thinkpad Edge 335 work with Win 10?

Hi Reinout123,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Forums!
 
Sorry to inform you, what you have found is correct and as I went through Lenovo support found the same thing that the laptop E335 is not supported under the list of supported system for windows10 update. For your confirmation please find the below given link for better understanding.
https://support.lenovo.com/sk/sk/documents/ht103535#thinkpad
 
Curious to know did you updated the windows 10 through ISO file, if not try updating through ISO but again no guarantee just try your luck.
Steps to update windows 10 through ISO file.
ISO file will need to be downloaded and burned to DVD and the upgrade installed from the optical media.
 
Hope this helps. write back for any clarification.
Thank you, have a good day.
 
Regards,
Naveen.v

I know nothing about the difference between the Yoga notebooks/laptops and I am worried that my model may not be compatible with the interactive pen (or would not provide as much of accuracy in touch sensitivity). Thanks for your advices :-)!

As the Yoga 500 15 supports neither Wacom EMR-based pens nor Wacom AES-based pens, your only option is a capacitive pen that works the same way as your finger.

I posted a similar question earlier and people referred me to the Yoga (much appreciated).  However, I was interested in the 2.6 lb carbon version with touch screen capabilities.  Asus has a Spin 7 model that is very good at 2.65lb, but I miss the red mouse toggle in the middle of the keyboard and Asus's track pad was designed too large....causing unintended tapping.  The Yoga, while nice, is heavier than I was looking for.  The 14 inch screen is about 3.3lb? the 12 inch at 3? I thought that some of the earlier Thinkpad Carbons had touch screen and was hoping they would make a return soon.  Thanks,

Hello, I've been using Thinkpad Edge 13 for two weeks. Today, without any changes, Fn button stopped working. I tried to use any special keys (volume, brightness) but it didn't respond. My first idea was that there is something physically wrong with Fn key. What is strange - when I switched Fn with Ctrl key in BIOS, Fn worked perfectly as Ctrl key! However, ctrl + Fxx had no effect. Fxx buttons work (F5 refreshes sites in browser, F1 opens help etc.). I updated bios about week ago (ThinkUpdate says there is no new update right there). Does anyone know solution for such problem?

Maybe you can tell us a bit more ?   When you first start up, does the touchpad work?  How about the trackpoint?
 
Are the times when it does not respond seem totally random, or perhaps in association with certain programs, tasks, or length of time since start up?
 
At times where the touchpad doesn't respond, do it's click buttons still work?
 
Does changing the sensitivity settings make any difference?

Okay, a School-issued ThinkPad Edge. It was bought new with a Windows 7 and an intel core i3 processor. I download Skype, and part of the set-up process is the mic part, and that's how I found out that the BUILT IN mic DID NOT work. I've looked around,
but all of the solutions I see I've either already tried, or wouldn't work in this situation (For example, the computer's original OS is Win7, it's not going to be an outdated sound card!) Does anybody have a specific solution? I've tried going in and messing
with the sound levels and the boost, I've made sure the mic wasn't muted. I even have the little green check in that one part saying that it should be working! I have no idea what else to do, and this is a serious issue for a lot of people. I can survive without
the mic for a while, but not forever. I would also appreciate it if I didn't get a hundred people saying that they're having the same issue. If you have a suggestion on how to fix it, then great! Maybe complain a little about your issues with the mic as you're
doing so, but if you're not giving a possible solution, then
please don't say anything here. Hope I get an answer soon! <:)

Hello, I am having trouble activating Windows on my laptop after a fresh OS reinstall and would appreciate any help you can give.

Specs:
Lenovo Thinkpad Edge 13
Processor: Intel U7300 1.3GHz
System: Windows 7 Professional 64-bit
RAM: 3 GB
Memory: 138 GB

Backstory:
I bought this laptop from a programmer friend in 2010. He had installed an OEM copy of Windows 7 pro (and there is nothing on the bottom listing the Windows product key). Recently I decided to install a fresh copy of Windows because it was slow and had too much crap on it. I ran Belarc Advisor to obtain the 25-digit Windows product key and other application product keys. I put a Windows install disk on a flash drive and reinstalled Windows 7 Professional 64-bit.

Problem:
However, when I try to activate Windows using the key that was registered to the device for the last 3 years, it says "The product key you have entered does not appear to be a valid Windows 7 key." I found a live support site for Microsoft problems, but after I explained the issue they tried to sell me another copy of Windows for $399.99 (WTF!). I tried Lenovo's online live support and they said to talk to Microsoft, not them.

Can anyone tell me if there is a way to activate Windows using the key I have, or do I have to obtain a new key? If I have to obtain a new key, do I have to reinstall Windows? With an OEM disk? Would I need to buy a Thinkpad OEM disk? What is the cheapest way to resolve this?

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.

Hi Everyone! The screen on my 14" Lenovo Thinkpad Edge (TYPE 0199 - 23U) is broken.  My son threw his toy at the screen, while I was taking a final exam, no less.    Anyway, I would like to order a new one, but want to make sure that I choose the correct one.  A factory screen from Lenovo costs more than I paid for the computer, so I've been looking on eBay.  I found this listing: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=400230876522&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:ITIs this the right screen from my computer? Thanks for your help!

I'm looking into buying a new Thinkpad to replace my trustworthy but aging T42. When I look at the various Edge models, I see that there are different types of screens across the 13/14/15 inch models. The 13" Edge page refers to "Glare" HD screens;The 14" Edge page refers to Glossy HD screens; andThe 15" Edge page refers both to "Glare" HD and Anti-Glare HD screens.Is there a difference (other than size) for screens across the 13/14/15 inch model lines? By "Glare" does Lenovo mean "Glossy", or did they just forgot to add "Anti-" before "Glare" I saw the 14" Edge model at Best Buy. The laptop looked nice and functioned well, barring the exceptionally glossy screen. It reflected the store's lights a lot, so I'm doubting it's ability to be a good laptop outdoors. On the bright side, I could probably use it as a mirror in the morning... If the other Edge models have the same screen, I'll consider buying a T410... or another business-line laptop from another manufacturer.

Answer:Thinkpad Edge Screen Question - Glossy HD Screen vs.

what a match... I also have T42 and planning to buy T410 or edge series.. Your query is exaxtly as mine.Please let me know what you bought and why?

This is worthless. My good ole (quality) laptop gave up after eight hard years of everyday use and travelling. So i bought a Lenovo four months ago, without much knowledge about how OS:s have evolved after Windows XP. The computer itself worked decently for some months, although i'm not a fan of windows 8. downloaded classic shell to get it operative and it worked for a while, then came issues. computer freezed spontaneously, apparently due to "disk usage 100%". and after an update it completely went haywire, couldn't boot. 0xc0000001 or something.  The recovery partition didn't recover anything. I tried all the options, eventually even complete factory reset or whatever it was called. Didn't work. (i have diagnosed the hdd:s and they passed). 0xc0000001. Now is the first time i actually discovered what pre-installed Windows 8 meant in practice. I couldn't just go to the last resort, ie FORMAT C: and clean install OS. for apparent reasons, no DVD with windows. So i ordered this from lenovo. Got recovery disks, 5 of them came. After a lot of tinkering with BIOS i managed to get them to work, or atleast pretend to work. After the long recovery process said it was finished, i rebooted, altered boot order etc. And what do i see now? After a weird long boot up: Blue screen background, and the command prompt. It reads: X:\windows\system32>CALL X:\windows\system32\FIXLETR.CMD What do i have to do to get this working? The retailer is closed on weekend... Read more

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. In the shop they had only the thinkpad yoga 12, which had a pen inside the yoga (right corner). They showed me this notebook. Later I ordered the thinkpad yoga 14 in the internet. There were a few versions, one was with a active pen. I thought this is the same like the yoga 12 with the pen in the right corner. But this is wrong. The pen is much bigger and you have a pen holder for these big pen. You can't put this in the right corner of the yoga 14. Ok that was'nt what I want, but ok. My problem now is that I don't know how this pen works. It doesn't work and I can't find a solution for that problem. Are there any drivers which I have to install? There is no description, only a short which describe how I have to put the battery inside the pen  Sorry for my bad English, I'm a German  best regards,Izzmir

Answer:Thinkpad Yoga 14 - Problems with active pen - did not work?!

As far as I was aware, the 14 doesn't come with the digitizer pen. I thought only the 12.5 and 15 had this technology

Hello,I just bought a new Yoga370. When I turn the screen over to convert it to a tablet, it doesn't seem to work.Nothing happens when I touch the screen - the screen does not seem to have any sensitivity to the pen or my fingers.However, when I turn it back to PC mode, the touch screen mode works again.I would appreciate your advice on how to resolve the issue. Thanks.

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.

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?

Answer:THINKPAD YOGA- AUTO-ROTATE IS NOT WORK

Check and make sure that "Sensor Monitoring Service" is running.  I disabled it to try to get my screen from autodimming randomly and I noticed autorotate, auto switching tablet, and the rotate lock button stopped working.  Re-enabling this service fixed it.   Start -> Run -> services.msc Scroll down the list and look for "Sensor Monitoring Service"

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.
 
Regards.

I recently bought a Lenovo Thinkpad Yoga 260 with Windows 10 Pro 64 bits. I instaled Intel Wireless Display Software to see the desktop on a TV. The software works with the Samsung TV I have where I work, but it does work with the Samsung TV I have at home. The Samsung TV model I have is the UE55F6400. When I tried to connect, the connection works for a while, but after a time I receive the message "Video Data not compatible" ("Datos de Vídeo no compatibles" in Spanish). Of course I instaled the newest drivers for the notebook and the last firmware of the TV. Any help will be appreciated.

Hey guys, today I've got my new Thinkpad Yoga and it's really nice but I don't know if it's the driver or the touchpad it self. I can't push the right mouse button. Whether I use the double tab nor the right corner (at the top or bottom), nothing happens. left click works fine, but only if I activate the on tab option. Already tried to uninstall the driver and reinstallt the new version from the website nothing changed. And sometimes the touchpad and the trackpoint don't work at all. I'm using Windows 8.1 x64. Thanks for your help! lg

Answer:thinkpad yoga touchpad right click does not work

I've recognized something. Sometimes when I use a "click" function of the touchpad a small touchpad icon appears on the notification area. But you can see it only a short time. I think it is definitely a driver issue. Am I the only one?

I recently bought a Thinkpad Edge 15 with the ATI graphics card, i5-560, 8 GB of RAM and a 500 GB HDD. Everything is perfect apart from the screen resolution. The screen looks good, but i can do with a better resolution that 1366x768. So i was just wondering if there is a way i can upgrade the screen by the official lenovo channels, maybe take my laptop to a lenovo service centre nearby and they can replace the screen.

I had previously read online that this computer had an optional touch screen, however, when I saw my friend's it wasn't a touch screen.

Hi! my ThinkPad shows a strange behavior... Suddenly the screen brightness was reduced by the system. Brightness is "15" but it is darker than before. I can not find any option to raise brightness!!!! I am using a Lenovo power supply unit. It is annoying to use the ThinkPad at daylight. Really exhausting looking at a screen thats too dark. Any tips? Regards, nightwatch83  

Answer:Screen Brightness (ThinkPad Edge 15)

nightwatch83,
 
Some basic questions...
 
If you reboot to windows and are on AC is the screen still dim?   Does it respond at all to screen brightness increase / decrease settings?   
 
If you restart and go into BIOS on AC, how bright is the display?  Any different than in Windows?
 
If the problem seems isolated in Windows, I would reload the power manager and hotkey drivers and recheck the settings in power manager for screen brightness.
 
Best regards,

Hey guys, I recently bought a Thinkpad Edge 11 and i noticed that the upper part of the screen bezel is seated a bit flimsy. If you slightly tap on the left and right side of the bezel (just left and right from where the webcam is installed) it makes a rattling sound and everytime I open the notebook up you can hear the bezel making a sound as the pressure of the closed lid is taken off of it.It doesn't look like it's falling apart though, I was just wondering about the "flimsyness". Is this something within the normal quality of the Thinkpad Edge or did I get a flawed unit? I really don't want to exchange this thing again, as this is already a replacement machine I got because of a non responsive space bar -.- Best regards

if you download your Hardware Maintenance Manual
http://download.lenovo.com/ibmdl/pub/pc/pccbbs/mobiles_pdf/75y6925_03.pdf
have a look at pg94, the last block of the grid. it lists 4 possible part numbers for your pc:
04W137904W045004W04510A66647
 
these may help you to source a panel and other needed parts.
the manual, itself, should help should you choose to do the repair yourself.

I bought a ThinkPad Edge 14 running Win7 pro about 9 months ago and it had been working fine.  A couple of weeks ago, I started having issues where the screen would go blank at random.  Windows and any software I had running kept running fine until the screen would come back on.  It did not matter if my power cord was plugged in or if I were on battery.  Reading previous threads, I did switch my refresh rate to 50Hz but this did not really help.  Now the problem has gotten worse.  The screen not only goes blank but also sets me back to the login screen.  Sometimes, I don't have enough time to even login before the screen goes blank.  Yesterday, it was bad enough that I got the following messages:  "Interactive logon process has failed.  Please see event log." Event Log Entries:"The winlogon notification subscriber GPClient was unavailable to handle a notification event.""The winlogon notification subscriber SessionEnv was unavailable to handle a notification event.""The winlogon notification subscriber Sens was unavailable to handle a notification event." The machine tried Startup Repair a couple of times and it seemed to work once but then the screen went blank again. It is also worth mentioning that, as of yesterday, two new events happened: 1.  I noticed that if the laptop went blank awhile, then I could hold "Fn" and it the login screen would appear briefly.2.  Sometimes, i...
