Edge 520 Trackpoint Problems

Question: Edge 520 Trackpoint Problems

While away on a work trip, my E520 started acting up. Whenever the trackpoint button is touched, the brightness, sound, caps lock, various windows will open. Definately something is going on and i have even disabled trackpoint in the ultranav menu and although the trackpoint will not move my mouse around on the screen.. the issues stated still occur whenever the trackpoint is touched.

Hello!Please help me, I've tried uninstalling and installing the UltraNav drive without success.Block trackpoint, and even use a regular mouse.My problem is as follows:The Trackpoint cursor is moving alone. After disabling the trackpoint, I could use the touchpad for a normal time. Then the cursor touchpad is also moving alone. And the same happens with the mouse.Furthermore, the lower right touchpad button does not work as secondary click. Works just like the left, a standard button click. And sometimes not even working.Please help me! This is bothering others. I have to hold the trackpoint cursor to stop moving alone and to use normal mouse. Windows 8.1 64, ThinckPad Edge E430, core i5.Thank you!

Hi, I have an Edge 13 (a 0196 with SU7300) which is great. However, I can't enable the TrackPoint. The checkbox in mouse properties (UltraNav tab) is greyed out. I've checked the bios and there is no option to enable/disable the trackpoint. Any ideas?

I just purchased a ThinkPad Edge 13 0196-3HM with Windows 7.I am happy with the product except the TrackPoint and Touch Pad do not work. A USB mouse and a BlueTooth Mouse work fine. From the initial startup there has been no life in either the Touch Pad or the TrackPoint.The device manager does not find the TrackPoint or Touch Pad.I've checked settings, the drivers and all appears OK. Anyone have a similar problem? or can anyone help? The trouble shooting on the Lenovo site has no answer I can find, the supplier advised "talk to Lenovo". Thanks.

Answer:ThinkPad Edge 13 TrackPoint / Touch Pad

Verify that the trackpad ribbon cable is full inserted into the socket. You'll need to remove the keyboard to check this. See the hardware maintenance manual.

Hi there! Touchpad and trackpoint stopped working on my newly bought laptop (~1 month old). It just happend immediately. It's not working on Linux neither on Windows 8.

Answer:Edge E531 touchpad trackpoint not working

I'm having the exact same problem. Out of a sudden, trackpoint and touchpad have stopped working. Any fix for that? It is not Windows related, as they don't work outside it neither (e.g. in Hiren's BootCD utilities). @00nalu00: Did you solve the problem meanwhile? Thanks!

Hi everyone, I've been having some issues with my Thinkpad Edge E420s. The touchpad and trackpoint don't function whatsoever, but the keyboard is fine. I have tried reinstalling SYnaptics Ultranav but get error that the current driver (Microsoft PS/2) is newer driver. I have uninstalled all pointing devices' drivers and tried to reinstall Ultranav but no luck with that either.Any help will be greatly appreciated. Cheers,Arash P.S: Running Windows 10 Pro

Hi.My new Lenovo S430's Trackpad works most of the time but sometimes just suddenly stops working and I have to restart the laptop using keyboard navigation Often this happens when the machine is under load like an antivirus scan or similar. Sometimes the Trackpad is also sluggish to respond, like it ignores the first touch.The Trackpoint and mouse buttons (the ones above the Touchpad) work for the first 3-5 minutes after boot up and then suddenly stops working and doesn't start again until it's restarted. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling most of the drivers (for various other issues) on the machine but it hasn't helped. Does anyone have a solution to this problem?

Answer:Edge S430 - Touchpad, Trackpoint & Mouse Buttons Not Functioning Correctly

News on this problem: now nothing works except the keyboard. I'm stuck using a usb mouse. The bios config page for keyboard/mouse only shows options for the Fn keys. The laptop also bricked itself briefly and gave an error beep (1, 3, 3, 1) which seems to indicate a problem with the DIMM or system board. What can I do? Will a system restore help or should I just send it back? I need help.

Hi all, I have a problem with my Thinkpad Edge S430. After reinstalling Windows 7, System update and all drivers, my trackpoint doesn't work. Itīs disabled and there is no way of getting it to work. I have unistalled, cleaned the registry and reinstalled the driver from the official driver web page, from within system update,... no way.  The other problem is with the SD Reader. I use a 32Gb SD card for backup purposes and a week ago simply itīs like the reader does not exist anymore. The devide administrator does have all drivers installed, but the reader is not working (of course, I have checked that the card is working and with all data in other PC). I have also unistalled and installed the driver, but again no way. Any help is really welcome. Thanks in advance,

Answer:Ultranav trackpoint not working, SD reader vanished. Thinkpad EDGE S430

Hi, petodow
 
For the TrackPoint issue, I would try installing the Synaptics driver from here. Synaptics is the company that makes UltraNav, so there shouldn't be any loss of functionality.
 
As for the SD card reader, there is a BIOS update that was released five days ago that may help. The update can be found here.
 
Hope it helps,
Adam

For a while now, I have wondered why the virtual buttons shown in the utility http://imgur.com/Lljj1Z7 don?t function as advertised. According to the utility, I should get a left click if I depress the left are of the touchpad, a middle click if I push on the bumps, and a right click if I depress the right half of the touchpad. In my experience, I get a left click regardless of where I depress the touchpad. The only exception is when I depress the bumps in the top middle of the touchpad?when I do that, the mouse enters some weird scrolly mode where I scan scroll stuff with the trackpoint. It definitely does not emit a middle click. But, more importantly, I cannot figure out how to get trackpoint mode to emit a right click. How do I get trackpoint classic mode to work? Is there a way to downgrade the drive or use a non-lenovo branded driver to get it to behave properly? Right now, I?m relying on an external mouse just to middle click and right click. I?m using Windows 10 b10240 and, as in the post?s title, my trackpoint driver is the latest listed on Lenovo?s support site (which I think WU actually installed for me)?19.0.12.61. Why don?t the virtual buttons work and are there any other workarounds that don?t involve using a mode other than Trackpoint Classic?

Answer:T540p unable to right-click with virtual buttons in trackpoint or trackpoint classic mode 19.0.12.61

Seems to have partially fixed iteslf since Windows Update (WU) installed 19.0.16. Now the right half of my touchpad performs a right click when in TrackPad Classic mode. However, the supposed ?middle click? zone still does a weird scrolly mode instead of sending a middle click. Guess I still have to use an external mouse to accomplish a middle click when using Classic TrackPoint mode, but at least the situtaion is better than when I couldn?t right click with this mode.

Hi, I got an S230u Twist last autumn and have been really happy with it. At the time, I ordered a set of replacement rubber TrackPoint caps. When I replaced the original cap the other day, I realised that the replacement ones are about 0.5mm shorter than the original one, with the result that the H and G keys get caught on the edge of the cap; you have to hit them quite hard to get them to work. I compared all the new caps from the packet against the original one, and sure enough; they're all a little too short. They fit, but it's annoying to have to go back and make sure all my ""G"s and "H"s typed correctly.  Has anyone else had the same problem? Lenovo, could this just have been a bad batch, and if so can I return the unused ones for a replacement set that is the correct height? 

Answer:S230u - replacement trackpoint TrackPoint caps are too short

If you bought them from Lenovo I'd just try and return them. If not dispute on eBay/PayPal/Credit Card. But never use poor quality TrackPoint Caps. Remember if a computer is running efficiently so is the person behind it generally.

I recently got a Thinkpad T420.  One of my favorite features is the nub, but for the past few days the nub has been impossible to use.  It will click things randomly and rapidly and also freezes and shakes the mouse.  Once I deactivate trackpoint it works fine, but it's one of my favorite features. I just bought the computer two weeks ago so I can't imagine the keyboard breaking already. Is it a software problem or something?

Just upgraded from a T43P to a W500 and instantly I can notice how messed up the trackpoint mouse is.It just jumps randomly on its own!! Also...using the left click button does not actually click the link but thepointer actually jumps and settles down on a different part of the screen after clicking.Also every now and then, the trackpoint will stop moving the pointer(freeze) and it recovers after 4-5 seconds.This is really frustrating!! Anyone else seen this before?  DD

Answer:W500 trackpoint problems

Hello Desidon: I have always found the trackpoint device (the pointing stick) to be one of the most reliable things on ThinkPads.  I upgraded from a T42P to a W500, and did not notice any difference in trackpoint function - the stick on the W500 works as well as the stick on the T42P did. The operating system itself (Vista or XP) offers some 'options' that, if enabled, might be what is causing the unexpected behaviour you are experiencing.  If you go to the mouse control panel and have a look around in there, you will find that there is an option that causes the pointer to automatically jump to the default acceptance button in dialog boxes whenever dialog boxes appear.  I have turned that option off, I find that it is distracting. By default, both the touchpad and the trackpoint stick are enabled.  I have disabled the touchpad on my W500 because I find that I often inadvertently activated the touchpad when I am typing or otherwise operating the computer.  You can easily turn the touchpad off (while leaving the trackpoint on), the control for that is in the Mouse control panel under the "UltraNav" tab.  My guess is that if you turn off the above two options, 99% of your problems will disappear. There have been issues reported with the cursor on the screen occasionally freezing up.  That is being discussed in a different discussion (Temporary but DAILY mouse / system freezing (W500 w/ Vista Business 32), and we have no...

I have an IBM T40 laptop. I have been having problems with the mouse properties. I opened up the advanced properties for the mouse and selected the UltraNav tab. I keep selecting the "Standard Scroll" option but it never stays. It keeps doing the smooth scrolling. For some reason, after my laptop has been on for a while, I can get the standard scroll option to stay. But then after a while longer it reverts back by itself. It usually happens when something disrupts my wireless internet connection. I have downloaded all the latest drivers that I could find from the IBM website. What is messing this up?

I hope someone can help.  My Trackpoint has a mind of its own.  It just creeps up to the left and pins itself in the upper corner of the screen.  I have downloaded the latest drivers, this has no effect.  I am running XP S/3.  The battery problem is simply this, I don't know if the battery is 'shot' or the charger is not working.  Can anyone tell me how I can check either part before I have to buy something I don't need?I have been fooling around with this problem almost a month with no success.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Answer:TrackPoint and Battery Problems

I had the exact same problem for months.  I finally gave up and uninstalled the trackpoint completely and started using the USB mouse that works with my tablet.  That part works great but if you can't use a mouse that plugs into the back of the computer or anything else like a keyboard that plugs into that spot.  Forgive me for not knowing the technical term for that spot. Just a note of caution - a month or two after I uninstalled the trackpoint, I started getting an error message 8611 (please see my post right below yours) and this may be related.  I'm waiting to find out. Good luck, I know it drove me completely crazy.  In the meantime, try using another mouse, preferable a USB mouse since that's the only one that seems to respond. debbie

Hi, I'm setting up my new thinkpad t440s and I cannot get my trackpoint to work.  It does not respond and in my mouse properties/thinkpad section, the Touchpad is clearly enabled, but the Trackpoint options are all greyed out.  In the pointing options dropdown, I can only see the option to 'Use TouchPad only.'  I strongly prefer the Trackpoint to the Touchpad and would prefer it if possible. I currently have Synaptics pointing device driver version 18.0.7.109, the most recent version.  I've tried rolling back to previous versions and this issue still persists.  I also have gone into BIOS and disabled and re-enabled the Trackpoint in boot settings. Unfortunately, since this is a work machine, I do NOT have the capability to remove the keyboard or replace parts.  Any ideas at all would be greatly appreciated.

Hello all,I just got my Thinkpad T420 two weeks ago. Solid laptop overall, but recently I have some problems with my touchpad and trackpoint. There is a big movemental gap of the cursor when using trackpoint, and the touchpad is unusable. This happened once last week but then it disappeared after I disabled and then re-enabled trackpoint/touchpad, changing sensivity... Yesterday it happened again and this time it wont disappear after applying the same method. I tried updating the drivers, as well as reset BIOS (boot to BIOS -> F9 -> save) but none helped. I'm dualbooting windows 7 & arch linux, and the problem is present on both of the operating systems. This is really frustrating. Can someone please give me some suggestions what I could do to get rid of this annoying bug.Thanks very much.

I just got my new ThinkPad T440s, and I'm having some difficulties getting the Trackpoint to work properly. Whenever I power up the system, the Trackpoint is responsive for a minute or so and then completely stops working, while the touchpad works just fine. I have tried re-installing/ updating the Ultranav driver, but no luck. I have also tried a complete factory restore, and the problem remains.  I noticed that when I don't have the Ultranav driver installed, the trackpoint works a little while longer but then gets a bit crazy. By that I mean moving the cursor using either touchpad or trackpoint somehow ends up opening shortcuts, moving icons or the taskbar, etc. It's hard to explain, but it's like the cursor moves all over the screen rapidly "left-clicking" and "right-clicking" all over the place.  It's strange that when I'm going through the Windows installation prompts, the trackpoint seemed to work just fine. This and the fact that it works for a minute upon start-up make me think it's a software issue.  Does anyone have any suggestions that I could try? I haven't tried doing anything in the BIOS, if there's something that could be done. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Answer:T440s Trackpoint problems

Hi zorero, You can check in the bios if the trackpoint is enabled but if it works sometimes it might be anyway. you should try to remove the keyboard, unplug the trackpad and replug it.It can be just just a connection problem where the plug is not properly attached to the motherboard. There is the link to the Hardware Maintenance Manual where you can find how to remove the keyboard: http://download.lenovo.com/ibmdl/pub/pc/pccbbs/mobiles_pdf/t440s_hmm_en_sp40a25360_01.pdf Hope that helps, Vince.

I just got a T450s and have been having some issues with the synaptics drivers. First, the trackpad: when I scroll with two fingers, and I let go of one of the fingers, it keeps scrolling. Is there any way I can change this? Also, there's a gesture to go forwards and backwards, but it only works with three fingers and goes the opposite direction I'm used to. I tried installing older synaptics drivers, but they didn't seem very compatible with my trackpad; it only let me tap to click instead of actually clicking the trackpad down. These two things don't seem like bugs to me, but more of just lack of features that i'm wondering if there is a way to get them to work the way I'd like them to. The real problem I'm having is with the scorll button on the trackpoint. When I press it, the cursor changes to the scroll bar. When I start to scroll, though, it doesn't do it smoothly, whether I have it set to "standard" or "traditional". When it's doing that, the cursor flashes rapidly, too, as soon as I touch the trackpoint.

Sometimes, more often then helix is unplugged from power abapter, touhpad and trackpoint just stops warking at all. Keyboard working fine. Sometimes after about 30sseconds of tapping, mouse cursor moves a little, or touchpad "returns to live", but for about 3-5seconds, and then "dies" again.All drivers are updated from Lenovo site with their latest versions.OS doesnt matter, happends on windows 7 and windows 8 both. 

Answer:Helix touchpad/trackpoint problems

Hi, mr_Jack
 
I would recommend uninstalling the current driver and see if it is the driver that is causing the issue. This can be accomplished by navigating to Control Panel ? Device Manager. While in Device Manager, open the tree labelled Mice and other pointing devices. Right-click on the device and select Properties. Next, navigate to the Driver tab and click on Uninstall... at the bottom. This will uninstall the driver, which will allow Windows to install a generic driver. If the generic driver functions without issue, then I would recommend either trying to reinstall the UltraNav driver or giving the Synaptics base driver installed, which can be found here.
 
Hope it helps,
Adam

I've got a Lenovo L430-2465 with 64 bit Windows 7 Pro, an i5-3360M 2.8GHz CPU, 8 GB of RAM, and an Intel HD-4000 graphics card.At seemingly random times, my trackpoint as well as the row of mouse buttons above the trackpad will stop working.  It only happens when I'm playing a game. So far, it has happened in Team Fortress 2, Garry's Mod, and Half Life 2. The game never lags before or after the trackpoint quits.  I can still navigate around using the trackpad.  I can put my computer to sleep and immediately log back in, and the trackpoint and buttons will work perfectly. I don't even have to close my game. I've checked the control panel, and when it stops working, the trackpoint is still enabled, so it isn't an issue there. I can't find any evidence of this happening to anyone else, but any help you can give me will be very welcome.

Hi, I recently disassembled my Thinkpad W520 to clean out the fan and check a few things on the motherboard and when I put it back together both the trackpoint and touchpads have stopped working.  The trackpoint is attached to the motherboard at the same connector as the keyboard which works fine and I was very careful with static, dust, etc when I dissambled everything so I don't really see how anything could have gotten damaged.  First time I turned it back on the trackpoint worked fine but I had forgotten to plug the CMOS battery back in and when I went back and did that it stopped working.  Not sure about the touchpad, I dont use it much so didn't check it at first.  So far my attempts to uninstall/reinstall the drivers haven't helped.  The touchpad's no longer recognised in device manager but the mouse and keyboard are (and nothing's turned off in the BIOS either).  Is this just a sign of a bad motherboard or am I missing something easier to fix here?  Up until this point everything worked fine other than some USB issues which were do to a physical connetion problem.  It seems strange that the keyboard is ok but the mice dont work. Anyone have any  advice or suggestions?

Answer:trackpoint and touchpad problems - W520

Hello S_Zahara, Motherboards are the most sensitive and delicate part of the computer. It may be possible that when you removed the CMOS Battery, that may have changed some settings in the bios. Make sure the trackpad is enabled in your bios settings. Also, to make sure the CMOS battery is getting a full charge, leave your computer on for 24 hours. If the problem still persists, I would reseat the track pad to the motherboard. Hope that helps.

The left and right directions are fine however. Is there a reason this is? Because it is inverted I do not use it often, however it drifts a lot.

I am having persistent problems with the touchpad and trackpoint on my L530.  I prefer to use the trackpoint usually, and found that the touchpad was super-sensitive and caused the cursor to jump around during normal (touch) typing so I disabled the touchpad.  Next time the thinkpad resumed from sleep mode, the mouse was frozen.  Nothing would reactivate it.  I had to switch user, which temporarily fixed it, and then reactivate the touchpad.  If I try and change trackpad settings at any time other than directly after a reboot, the settings are greyed-out and I can't touch them. Right now, both trackpad and trackpoint are completely dead again, but I've plugged in a USB mouse and that seems to be working, so I've given up fiddling with it.  This will be a pain when I'm moving around with the laptop though! The OS is Windows 7.  Yesterday I went looking for the most recent driver, uninstalled the existing one (as per guidance) and installed the new driver.  No luck.   I've heard this is a common problem and apparently installing a generic driver works, but I'm not completely sure what to use.  Anyone know?  Oh, and I'm not sure if this is related, but quite often when I resume from sleep mode the keyboard is also dead.  However, if I switch user it comes back to life.  So annoying but not the end of the world.

Hello all - I have an X1 Carbon that is only a few weeks old and have had nothing but problems...please see the list below.  They all seem to be somehow interrelated but I simply can't find a solution.   When powering up, the computer freezes mid start up (at the windows icon screen) until various buttons on the keyboard are pushed.  I've waited in excess of 5 minutes to start up to test this out...it seems that 100% of the time the computer will not start on it's own by simply pressing the power button.Once the computer does get to the start screen, the mouse cursor slowly drifts on its own across the screen until several more buttons are pushed on the keyboard to stop it (hitting right click a few times usually works).  This occurs both using an external mouse at the office and the touchpad at home.While in the Google Chrome browser, the tabs close when clicking them instead of switching to that tab.  Restarting the computer resets this, but throughout the day it will keep occurring.  Hitting the middle click fixes this temporarily (but that leads to a different problem).  This occurs both using an external mouse at the office and the touchpad at home.  This also has about a 100% failure rate after the computer wakes up from a sleep mode as well as sporatically throughout the day.Due to problems with trackpoint, my default is to keep trackpoint disabled.  When trackpoint is enabled, the cursor sporadically will change to som...

Hi I have a non-touch screen Z500 i7. I just checked and it is running Windows 8. It is brand new. Out of the box the pointer freezes sometimes after a few minutes, sometimes after a few hours of usage. A restart using the keyboard resolves it. I have followed the instructions in another thread here to update the touchpad drivers (they are the elan ones). I would welcome advice and a solution. Thanks.

Answer:z500 trackpoint problems - pointer freezes randomly

In fact it transpires the update despite saying it has updated is not working (or perhaps it has and the driver has not been updated since 2012): Elan30/8/201211.4.8.1 Update driver is greyed out. I am running windows 8 64 bit.

Answer:ThinkPad S230u Trackpoint mouse and touchpad problems.

Hi Finlander,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
I?m really sorry to hear that you are having trouble with Touchpad and TrackPoint in your Lenovo S230u.
 
I would recommend you to update the Ultranav Driver to the latest version and check.
 
In order to disable the touchpad, go to Control Panel -> Mouse -> Ultrnav -> Uncheck Enable Touchpad checkbox ->OK.
Spoiler (Highlight to read)
Hope this helps!
 
Best regards,
Mithun.

Hi, I have been having some problems for a long time now and it is just getting on my nerves. I have a thinkpad L530  (model 2481-2SG) and in summary, the problems are: 1) Trackpoint and touchpad software seems to fail permanently after waking up from hibernation/sleep (tick boxes on the mouse configuration menu are also greyed out) and so, trackpoint cursor sensitivity is lost. 2) Sometimes trackpoint and touchpad do not work at all and if i get unlucky, keyboard may not work either, so I have to hard-reset. 3) I have 7 unknown devices in my device manager window and I have tried looking for their drivers for months without no avail (lenovo.com, lenovo update, searching on forums...)A snapshot of my screen: http://oi43.tinypic.com/dxo2hg.jpg I have tried to solve my problems updating all my drivers (both through lenovo.com and lenovo update), resetting all the configurations, default bios... Besides this sleeping problem, computer works just fine, smoothly and fast. I am just afraid of sleeping/hibernating my computer cause keyboard and trackpoint may not work after waking up... and I hate to do a hard-reset. Also, I have windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit, BIOS 2.52, 4G RAM Thank you in advance for your time, because I do not know what else to do and these problems are driving me crazy.

My laptop uses a track point mouse, which is a red covred plastic thing in the middle of my keyboard on my laptop. I am using an IBM thinkpad 600x laptop. Anyways, my mouse on my laptop is broken. it goes all over my screen and i can't control it. it is spastic, and it does not move alot of times as well. And I have tried to disable it, but it did not work. Also, when I plug a regular mouse in, it works fine, unless the trackpoint is acting up. I want to disable the trackpoint mouse, but still use a regular mouse. Is that possible?

Question: New Edge Problems

After considerable research and on-site testing/comparison I purchased the ThinkPad Edge today.  I was thrilled, I've always heard this brand was one of the best.  However, one of the things mentioned in several user reviews was the inability to get the webcam to work.  Count me among that group.  The display model at Best Buy couldn't get the webcam to work and after setting mine up, the webcam didn't work.  When I search the hard drive using webcam all I get is an empty folder.  Is there software or does this laptop have to be used with Skype? Second, the keyboard is supposed to be backlit but mine doesn't have it.  What's up with that? Finally, the Touchpad has lots of features but I don't want to use the scroll of magification, so I turned them off in the settings but they continue to work.  Do I just have a defective one?  I've talked with the Geek Squad but this laptop is too new, none of them have worked on it this model.  I like the size, style and features (although I find it a bit slow so I would upgrade the RAM) but am returning it tomorrow to Best Buy to have them check it out.  The problem is they have sold out of this model so if it needs to be replaced I'll have to go with another brand/model.  Any help will be appreciated.

Hello all, last year, I bought an Edge 130 Thinpad Notebook. Though some of you might talk about quality issues (at least I read in other forums), for me, after dealing with Fujitsu quality, this is perceiverd very worthy.Unfortunately, I have a problem which could not be solved yet, and, using google and other searches, it seems like a kind of unusual one. My microphone does not work!I tried several approaches to make this thing work, like installing new drivers for audio and camera, uninstalling the original lenovo software, but nothing would help. I can switch the "device" on and off via hotkey and it is activated in the system, but it does not work.As I mentioned, I am very happy with the Lenovo Thinkpad E130, but this is very annoying, as skype and other audio/video conference tools do not work at all (beside their chat function). Does somebody have the same problem and has a tip on how to solve this issue? I would appreciate this very much, as I do not really know what to do any more. It also is not muted (at least I think so, because it is not listed in the volume bar with the other volume output properties).Thanks in advance! Best regards Sebastian

I'm not sure what is going on with Windows 10. Until a couple of days ago my PC was fine, then edge disappeared from my Start menu as did all of my Tiles. Edge also disappeared form my Task Bar. It is still on my PC somewhere because it remains my default browser and starts from hyperlinks. If I minimise Edge, there is now way I can call it back. I have been on the Microsoft site and used the available tools but no faults were identified.  Furthermoe, I tried to use HP Help and Support but that seems to have disappeared from my PC as well.  I'm not having a good time at the moment.

I'm going through hell trying to upgrade my Edge 14 from the stock 500GB HDD to a 128GB SSD.  Since I have only ~70GB of data on the HDD, my preference has been to clone the image to the new SSD.  I have tried unsuccessfully with several free or trial disc cloning programs to do this and have been totally unsuccessful with many blue screens along the way.  Finally, while I was attempting to install a very old copy of Acronis TrueImage 7 (onto the working HDD), it crashed again and now won't recover.  I had saved a backup image of the drive a few days ago, but System Recovery cannot find it.  Now, during the crash, it requests that I insert the Windows disc.  This system has Win 7 Home 64, but I didn't receive backup discs from Lenovo, so I inserted a Professional 64 disc from another machine, and it indicates that it's not the correct version.  The odd thing is that I used the same disc to successfully recover from a crash last night.  So I'm stuck not being able to repair the boot image on the HDD. I pulled the HDD from the laptop and looked at it as an external drive on another PC, and everything appears intact.  It just won't boot.  I see 3 partitions/logical drives on the HDD: 1.17GB SYSTEM_DRV, 9.77GB Lenovo_recovery, & 454.82GB Windows7_OS. Since I was having so much trouble with the cloning and could no longer boot from the HDD, I decided to just try a fresh install onto the SSD.  Even that won't work...

I can make Edge work if I type Outlook.com in the address space - then I get the same "Sign Up Sign In" web page I get using IE. So now both IE and Edge make me go through the extra step to always Sign In or Sign Up - it don't make any difference which I choose it goes to Outlook.com.

you could change your default browser to IE11 instead of Edge. option #2 is install another browser like Chrome. I personally do not use edge because it lacks so many features, just is not worth the trouble. Windows in a new install sets Edge as your default browser.

Whenever I try to download anything with Edge it says "couldn't be downloaded". Every single time.

For example:



When I click on "Retry" it is always downloaded but replaces the "." before the file type with a "_".

This is what ends up in my "Downloads" folder.



So if I want to download anything I have to click on "Retry" and then go to my "Downloads" folder and rename "xxxx_zip" to "xxx.zip".

Is there a way around this? It is the "retry" that bugs me most - I understand the renaming so you don't run it by mistake - but both are a little annoying.

Answer:Problems downloading with Edge

The Fast and Simple answer is "Don't even bother!" as the best advice anyone can give you for Edge at the present time! Edge is still far from being a working replacement for IE! The Fast and Easy solution is to browse the Program Files\Internet Explorer folder and right click to pin to Start and even the main task bar on the iexplorer.exe file itself and once you start up IE 11 see that set as the default browser. From there you should be able to download just about anything.

Edge itself is still in it's infancy and when trying to work with it here I actually had to stretch the bookmarks out across the second monitor in order to simply click and drag bookmarks to reorganize them somewhat since you couldn't simply drag one up as the first in the order! No delete option found either! It's not ready but presently only a preview form of a browser!

Hi guys,I'd be very grateful if you could help with the following Thinkpad Edge 13 issues:1. Heating. The fan is blowing hot air from the vent on the left. The bottom left of the keyboard also gets very, very hot. How can I cool it down?2. WiFi. The WiFi adapter turns off after the laptop goes to sleep. I think have to run the troubleshoot to restore it again. Very annoying problem - any ideas on a fix?3. Freezing. This might be related to the heat problem, but since I installed a new hdd, the laptop freezes for about 30 seconds before coming back to life again. It seems especially the case when watching video.4. Video. When watching video on VLC, if I jog the laptop only slightly, the video freezes or stutters.

you could change your default browser to IE11 instead of Edge. option #2 is install another browser like Chrome. I personally do not use edge because it lacks so many features, just is not worth the trouble. Windows in a new install sets Edge as your default browser.

Almost forgot.... Welcome to Windows Ten Forum Margie!!!

Hi there It's a week ago I've bought 2 thinkcenter 91z. After starting the system I cannot use the wireless keyboard and mouse. I even cannot use the touch of the monitor. Maybe I should install some drivers but I don't understand because the system is completely new! Maybe it is a setting? Whatever... I cannot get the key and the touch work. Any ideas? Thanks for every help. Best regards

I am using Microsoft Edge, and for convenience I am adding pages into the favourites section for quick access to them. However, I have found over the last week that Edge is deleting these files without my input. So when I open Edge I find my favourites box is empty. What can I do to stop this?

Answer:Microsoft Edge Favourites Problems

Heard a lot of strange things about Edge but haven't heard it's deleting favorites by itself before.

You might end up having to reinstall and re-register Edge, here's a tutorial on how to do this https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/2...dows-10-a.html

Before you do that lets try some things. First lets make sure favorites are getting added using the correct icon.

How exactly are you adding a page/site to favorites? I checked mine to review how to add a favorite, it's the star icon in the upper right hand corner.

I usually use IE11, Edge is still missing basic browser functions like organize favorites, I'm not too familiar with it. But I can usually figure things out.

So I got a iTunes update a couple months ago. While I don't really like the new iTunes my more pressing problem is that it seems to be affected by the Smart Audio Driver and/Or the Dolby equalizer app. I tried the new driver from Lenovo but it does not seem to fix the iTunes issue which is iTunes freezes if I open either the Smart audio or the Dolby app. I tried to uninstall the Lenovo Conexant driver combo which unistalls both the Smart audio App and the Dolby App. Then allowing Windows to install a basic driver. Which does solve the iTunes freeze ups. What is troubling is that without that Dolby equalization the audio quality is dreadfully bad and worse yet even with decent headphone the fequency range is very poor. I guess I know now why the Dolby app is included. It makes a bad sounding audio chip sound better. My question is weather its worth trying a different driver to imporve sound? Or just wait for maybe a iTunes update or a Lenovo driver update that may fix the issues. I know that the Thinkpad line is not exsactly for audiophiles. But I was surprised the quality was not a little better.

With internet explorer I can do the control T command and pin a website tile to my start menu. What I like is each tile will have a logo from the website instead of just the e. It seems like with Edge we cannot do this, pretty boring tiles. Is there a way to pin a website tile to the start menu that shows the website or company logo instead of just the e/

Also, is it true we will no longer be able to use explorer? There are still issues with edge so hope this is not true, or at least something that will happen years down the line.

I am having all kinds of problems with windows sign ins. Initially could not sign in with Groove, then it seemed to work fine but cannot play solitaire as the xbox live does not want to sign in. This happens all the time, one day it all works fine then several days later I have problems.

Edge is very klunky...slow to open sites, freezes up, etc. I switched back to Chrome and the problems disappeared. Win. 10 is fine, just Edge. I used the Microsoft Community and they gave me this advice:

I suggest you clear the Clear browsing data option of Microsoft Edge and check if you face the issue. To do so perform the steps below.
Click on the More actions icon next to the feedback icon present on top right corner of the Project Spartan homepage.
Select Settings and click on Choose what to clear.
Check the boxes Browsing history, Cookies and saved website data and Cached data and files and click on Clear.

Unfortunately, I was unable to find this page anywhere (googled it & all). I wrote them back and they gave me advice on how to leave feedback. I guess they saw the words "feedback icon." Hopefully you know what the problem is. If it is the need to clear browsing data option, perhaps you can tell me where I can find the Project Spartan Homepage to follow these instructions.

Many thanks.

Sounds like malware if more than one browser is acting funny. I'd run a full scan with whatever AV you have, and even do a full scan with programs such as Malwarebytes/SuperAntiSpyware. If everything comes back clean check your default search settings. I don't use Edge, but in Chrome if you go to settings, and look for your search options.

I've asked for help in several threads but no answers tell me 'why' this is happening, they all just want me to reinstall, and that's a lot of hassle. Its like throwing away a car because the alternator isn't working right
Edge doesn't always remember , you can't 'easily' export tabs ( its a nightmare to do it), there is no 'save all tabs' or the 'ie 11 way', so its a nightmare.
Mail was working, no idea what happened, but it always worked fine.
SFC scan found something, I have a cbs.log file with a lot of errors but Have no idea how to identify what occured or fix it.

chksdk found no errors, so its not my hardware I don't think.

I was looking into buying a Lenovo Thinkpad Edge.

Has anyone got a defect free E530? What is the average battery drain time on both E530 and P500 on moderate to heavy load?

I have had good results with MS Edge browser until MS update of 4-7-17. Since then, Edge has been slow as molasses. Now all I can get when I click on Edge is the main page. I can click on a story but cannot go back.  I cannot type a website I want
to go to pay bills, browse, etc.  Edge will not close unless I open Task Manager and shut it down that way.  Really frustrating.  I have a Lenovo Z50 laptop computer, 8 GB RAM, 64 but OS, x64-processor, 906 GB storage

I recently installed Git and GitExtensions on my Win 10 Pro Desktop so that I could do some support for various projects on Github and when I tried to open a browser I had problems. I have my
defaults to to open Chrome when a browser is opened. My problem is when GitExtensions tries to open a browser Edge opens instead... with no navigation buttons/arrows/etc
whatsoever. And GitExtensions complains about setting compatibility-mode or using Firefox or Chrome or whatever. I tried setting the defaults to IE 11 with no change. How
do I get either  IE11 (installed) or Chrome (installed) to open instead of the chopped-down-not-usable Edge?

Answer:Problems with IE 11, Edge, Chrome and GitExtensions

Hi,
you'll have to set IE11 as your default browser. Internet Options>Programs tab, Have you installed the Visual Studio Git Hub extension? You can manage your repositories from within VS i/o the browser.
