This computer came with FreeDos and I had to buy a retail windows, so it wasnt custom set for the laptop and when I go to Lenovo driver page for Z510, the only driver in the touchpad and keyboard page is the touchpad drivers.Nothing for the keyboard. So what am I missing? Where can I go to turn on those extra function keys?By the way, I did check in BIOS and hotkeys is turned on.













Solved!

Hi, you really should not call your sister that, but anyhow she might be a real pain so I continue with my suggestions:
What is the make/model of your laptop? Laptops come with a touchpad utility that kicks in during Windows startup, it might also be listed in the services if using Windows 2000 or XP. So the service or the startup entry in the registry might have been deleted (but not the utility itself), the utility might have been disabled or uninstalled. Even a slimmer chance the touchpad functionality might have been disabled in the BIOS settings as most laptop BIOSes do have a related setting.
Depending on your laptop make/model find out what that utility is (from the manual or company's web site), then check the 'Add-Remove Programs' list to see if the program is still installed (you could also check it in START > Programs or All Programs list which is even better). If it is really missing then download the utility or using the laptop's utility CD (if one exists) re-install the program. If it still doesnt work then last step check the BIOS....these are all I can think of for now...

Hello i have a quite new laptop with Wins 8.1. I noticed the other day when it starts up after a short while the touch pad no longer works the cursor remains fixed. But when i put a USB mouse to the laptop the cursor works fine. But when i go back to the touch pad the cursor wont move. Does anyone have any idea what might be causing this? Hope for some help thanks.

Answer:Laptop Touch pad Doesnt work

something is conflicting with the touch pad drivers
earlier on this site someone found that Winamp was causing the conflict.

I'm having a similar problem, only this one is self inflicted.

I have a brand new Toshiba Satellite A215. I just got a new USB mouse to use with it, so I wanted to disable the touch pad (since I kept accidentally touching it and messing up whatever I was doing). Well, after about an hour of wandering through the different settings and such looking for the touch pad's disabling option, I found it. Completely by accident, as I was about to give up.

Here's my problem: I forgot how I did it.

So now, I'm unable to use the mouse unless I have a usb mouse plugged in. While this isn't a major problem (I'm pretty decent at navigating with just the keyboard), it is getting extremely annoying when I just want to do something simple, or don't have a good surface to use my laser mouse on.

I'm running windows vista home premium. Anyone who can help, I would appreciate it very much.

Hi. Welcome to MGs.

Just for future reference, you should start a new thread when you have a question you need answered rather than posting it in one someone else started.

As far as your mouse, you should be able to go into your control panel and click on the mouse icon to access your touchpad controls.

Toshiba Satellite A200 SKU PSAF6A-02Q01N Synaptics Touch pad issues, scroll doesn't work.

Operating system Win7 x64, re-formatted and upgraded from Vista x32, after having initial problems installing drivers and getting everything to work smoothly (for at least 2 months now), i was successful. Today out of the blue the scroll on the touch pad stopped working.

Tried to uninstall and re-install driver from Aus Support > Drivers, did this but got error, (something about) not recognising the OS.

I went to the Synaptics website found a driver which was recognised, installed it but not really wanting to restart the pc before i get some advice first. As there is a warning about specific drivers for specific Manufacturers and Models..

Hey there, Just had an cracked screen on my Yoga 2 Pro and paid for a replacement. As the screen was cracked, I had to disable the HID-compliant touch screen in my device manager because otherwise I couldn't use the Yoga 2 Pro at all - because of the crack it was like touches like everywhere on the screen at the same time, but I was able to disable it in "device manager". Yesterday, my screen has been changed and everything works fine - except the "touch function"! If I rotate my Yoga 2 Pro nothing happens, too. If I open the device manager, my HID-compliant touch screen is not visibile. If I press "show hidden devices" and select the HID-compliant touch screen (it is shown then), it is listed as "not connectet" - error code 45. But the screen itself is working.

Have you installed Synaptics touchpad driver?

Open Synaptics properties and check if this option is activated properly.

By the way: FN+F9 has nothing to do with this specific option. Using this key combination you can just enable/disable touchpad in general.

Hello! Since the most recent build of W-10 (9879), my caps lock, num lock, and scroll lock lights do not function on either computer on which I have W-10 installed (a desktop with a USB keyboard and a laptop with an integrated keyboard). The keys still work to correctly toggle the functionality, but the keyboard lights don't work. In case it matters, my keyboard's actual backlights and my mouse's internal light (not the laser, the internal LED) are working correctly, it's just the CL, NL, and SL indicators that don't function.

Anyone have any ideas for fixing this?

Hi Guys, I recently knew from my older brother that there's an option to disabled the touch pad, while using the laptop with the mouse. Because my touch is extra sensitive that when I'm working at times my palm touches it, and it transfers the cursor anywhere. But I like the sensitivity though because when I don't have a mouse, I can tap lightly twice and it opens the files or the links. But since using Fn+F6 for a week, I lost the sensitivity on my touch pad. I need to press hard once to click or open links or files. I tried modifying the touchpad sensitivity option, but no avail. Please help me, I'm a freelance worker and at times I don't work with a mouse.  Thanks,Brent

My Lenovo U410 Touch recently got damaged - the hinge broke causing the touch screen to **bleep**.I was told that a repair was not feasible as none of the repair shops near me were able to source the parts needed.I therefore bought a new laptop. However, there is a lot of data on the old laptop that I want to access, including sorting out the licensing of MS Office (by uninstalling from the old one).I cannot do anything about it as the old machine is completely unusable as due to the touch screen being cracked, it seems to think it is constantly being touched in multiple places on the screen. This means that I cannot access the laptop to copy the data or uninstall Office. Anyone know any way around this that doesn't involve taking it to a repair shop to "recover" my data. Cheers

Anybody have any idea how to get the touch function to work? I have the multitouch/multiview screen (brand new as of yesterday) Thinkpad X61 tablet & can't figure out for the life of me how to get the touch function to work. The stylus pen works fine but I would have bought the superview screen if I knew the touch function on this was this hard to use. I can't find a touch panel settings utility to adjust settings referred to in the manual - anybody have any idea where it might be hiding?

The nearly-indecipherable packing list which came with the tablet which was actually shipped to me seems to indicate indicates it is a Superview ("SXGATFT"). YIKES!

Since that I had some problems with my BIOS, but they stopped (re-enter date) . About two weeks ago, my battery was empty and my laptop crashed.When restarting it my display didn`t work any more. I thought that my display / display cable broke (i had reordered a display a week before due to stripes on my lcd caused by dumb cleaning).After the new display didnt work I noticed that one cable of the intern display connection broke:so I ordered a new intern display connection  After installing it, it didnt work too and I observed, that I can connect and work via an external monitor problemless, but when trying to "duplicate" the laptop screen to the monitor it stays black, as the display does... What do you recommend?  Best regards!

Hi, new to these forums, hope I don't break any rules or anything here.

My laptop is a
Sony Vaio - Model: SVE141R11L
Product name: SVE14135CXB
Pre-loaded with Windows 8 x64
Intel(R) Core i5-3230M CPU @ 2.60GHz
6GB RAM w/ 900GB HDD space
Purchased in Navy Exchange last year (around July 2013)

I have dropped it once or twice from at most a 3ft fall inside a padded case. I mostly use my computer for school work, some gaming, extensive video/photo editing, internet browsing. I've installed some debatable programs but have been installed long ago. Most of my programs included Microsoft Office, Adobe suite, Steam, iTunes, uTorrent, McAfee VirusScan Enterprise, Winrar, VLC, etc. But are now gone due to the refresh I had just done last week for prior problems, but still experience problems.

I recently been having issues with my computer where it just won't respond at all. Like today, I had it working for a few hours, but then went out and left my laptop on the lock screen, and came back to it being completely stuck. Completely stuck as in, no keys or clicks would unlock the screen to the login prompt. However, my cursor was fully able to move around the screen, and my caps/num lock buttons work as they display the lights enabling/disabling them. The time when it was stuck was 8:03pm, but the clock was stuck on 7:55. But on the bottom of the front of the laptop, the HDD orange light is not lit up at all, which I believe suggest that the HDD is not reading/properly reading. Oddly e... Read more

Question: Function Key Lock

To change the brightness on my T430, I need to press the FN key + F8/F9, is there any way to lock the FN key so that if I want to change brightness I just have to press F8/F9? Sorry if this has been asked before but I tried searching to no avail.

Answer:Function Key Lock

'afternoon.
 
disclaimer: these steps work on my X220. your T430 BIOS screens should be largely similar if not identical.
- boot to your BIOS and select Keyboard/Mouse from the Config menu.
- toggle Fn Key Lock to Enabled.
- save and reboot.
 
in Windows now, you'll be able to press the Fn key, release, and press the desired Fx key. ie no need for Fn+Fx key combo'ing. by pressing Fn twice it locks the effect for the current Windows session. now, pressing the Fx key does not require any Fn key-press. it just executes the function.
 
note, though that the Fn key double-press lock effect doesn't survive a system reboot. I haven't tested whether it survives system standby or hibernation.

Question: Function Lock Key

I have recently bought my Lenovo u410, and I seem to have a problem. The media and f1, f2, f3, and etc. keys are on the same keys, and this is where my problems arise; I play games on the computer and I use f1, f2, f3 keys while playing these said games. Whenever pressing the function keys, it instead recognizes it as a media key, and I'm forced to press Fn + F# and this is quite annoying. This is a Windows 8 computer and the BIOS does not have the setting to turn on Fn Lock and there is no Function Lock key anymore. Help!

Answer:Function Lock Key

Good day and welcome to the community.
 
Have a quick look at: http://service.lenovo.partner-management.com/content/CoursewarePublic/15415/U310_BIOS.swf
Specifically the Configuration tab and the Hotkey Switch item. I believe that in Legacy Mode this will switch the F keys back to standard F1, F2, etc.

When I touch with finger, only thing it does is minimize or maximize window. When I change position of taskbar (with start menu and icons), it doesn't maximize/minimize.  I think this means that when I touch with finger, cursor clicks at bottom right corner of display, where there is button for maximize/minimize window

Tell us what that screen is you are calling "select", please. If it's the Windows Boot Menu screen with the OS, you're way past the POST BIOS operation and the F12 will have no effect. You need to rapidly tap-tap-tap the F12 FN key as the BIOS is coming up, before it gets to the point where it hands over to Windows. Just explain a little more what that screen is. Thanks.

Hello, Today I found out there is a way to lock the Fn key in the BIOS which allows you to control the media keys on the double function F3-F12 keys, I thought this was a great feature and so I enabled it. Unfortunately it seems that I am unable to type as long as Fn lock is enabled, volume control also doesn't work. I have to press Fn twice for the keyboard and volume buttons to start responding again, but then Fn lock is disabled again. Is there a way to have Fn lock function without the rest of the keyboard losing its function? Because right now, using the media keys is more cumbersome than it was before while I thought it should have made it easier. Any suggestions?

Answer:Fn lock function on T430

Hi, erceve
 
Yes, this should be possible. There are two possible settings for the Fn key: Legacy and Standard. Legacy Mode works in the traditional sense. The secondary key functions become usable when the Fn key is pressed. Standard Mode takes the approach where the Fn key enables the function keys (F1-F12.) In this mode the function keys become the secondary, not the primary, functions. To enable this, I would disable the Fn Key Lock in the BIOS and then boot as normally. When in Windows, hold the Fn key for about ten seconds. A menu should appear that will allow you to switch the Fn key behavior. 
 
Hope it helps,Adam

It's just quite frustrating at the moment, and any advicewould be appreciated.As a side note, the option of using legacy keyboard functionality (within Windows) and all that doesn't fixthe issue, unfortunately.

On the T440 the function lock has to be on for the F1-12 keys to function normally, otherwise they work as their special function.  This is opposite conventional function locks where normally the user must hold Fn and press F# to make the special function happen or they enable function lock and can press the F# keys to get the special function. I have found othre threads that point to a BIOS update that allowed the conventional/standard way of doing this to be enabled but I just updated to the latest version 2.27 and it does not have the Hotkey swap option in BIOS or in windows mobility center. Here are 3 similar threads but for different models.https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/IdeaPad-Y-U-V-Z-and-P-series/Function-Lock-Key/m-p/1096829#M86625https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/IdeaPad-Y-U-V-Z-and-P-series/Is-there-a-way-to-reverse-the-Function-Fn-...https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Lenovo-3000-and-Essential/G400s-G500s-How-to-swap-FN-keys/ta-p/1312569 Can there be a BIOS update issued for the T440 to enable this functionality?

Hello,I would like to persistently lock the function keys at my E531 laptop. I know you can switch between function keys and multimedia functions by setting FnLock (Fn+ESC), but unfortunately this setting is volatile: everytime I restart the system (even from power saving mode), it is lost and the keys default to multimedia again. Using this laptop only for "real work", with software that extensively uses the function keys, this is really getting on my nerves...  Is there any way to persistently lock the function keys to generate F1..F12 keycodes?If I'd ever need the multimedia functions, I'll luckily hold down the Fn key before... OS is Windows 8.1. Thanks for any help,Tilmann 













Solved!

Go to Solution.

Answer:Persistently lock function keys!?

Hi Tilmann,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
To use the function keys to enable the standard functions instead of multimedia functions, go to BIOS by tapping F1 when system starts. Under config tab, go to keyboard/mouse. Change F1-F12 keys to legacy mode. Save and exit BIOS by pressing F10.
 
Hope this helps!

If it's not, open PC Settings, then This PC and System - check to see whether a touch panel is listed.  If it's not, and it's never worked, the system doesn't have a touchscreen.  If the touchscreen did work at some point, but isn't now -- and no changes were made (i.e., the OS wasn't reinstalled), then chances are the touch panel has failed.

Hi NoFear89,Can you Private Message me your Service Tag on the system? Or at least let me know the model number and OS the system is running. Also, does your other system show the touch screen in Device Manager correctly, or are both not showing this?Best regards,Brad

Hi, I have the Ideapad Flex 14 (first gen), and sometimes when I turn it on, the touch function doesn't work, I can only use the touchpad. But somedays it works fine. I don't remember when this problem started. I don't know why this happens, I need some help, thanks.  

Answer:Flex 14, touch function

I have a Flex 15 which also boots without touch screen, However after several minutes, the touchscreen edresponds.  I have tried all the suggested tips. USB hub power saver deactivevated in device manager settings, new drivers checked. Even a complete system restore. Nothing. My touchscreen is dead for 5 minutes before it comes on. Frustrated here.

After calling up the list using ctrl alt delete I check Lock. Everything was fine for a few weeks but now I hear the computer going out of lock mode at least once every forty-five minutes.I turn on the monitor and the sign in screen is up instead of the no signal advisory. After a short while the function kicks back in.

Should I stop trying to keep the computer in Lock? I've been advised by some never to turn the computer off and keep it in Lock mode when not using it. I prefer having everything loaded up so I don't have to wait between five and ten minutes for everything to load up. I just want to make sure I'm not harming my computer.

Thanks.

Answer:lock function is on but computer continues to start

Um... You seem to be confusing Lock mode and Sleep mode. Locking your computer is not by itself supposed to put your computer into Sleep mode. It is perfectly normal to see the sign in screen when your computer is Locked. Whether a locked computer will go into Sleep mode by itself depends on your Sleep settings, which is a separate issue.

If you don't want your computer to stay on all the time, then a good idea would be to put your computer in Sleep mode when you are not using it. Note: Sleep mode, not Lock mode.

I have to keep pressing the fn key to use f2 etc.I would change it in BOIS but I can't seem to get to it, I'm guessing because the f keys are actually functions at point of boot up.Any ideas on how to get into BOIS?.ThanksIggy.

Answer:HP Pavililon function lock key change and getting to BOIS

Immediately after powering on start tapping the Esc key. This will bring up a menu where F10 to enter BIOS is an option. Does that work to get into BIOS?

Hello,

it appears to be problems when I lock my computer. When I start typing my keyboard is completely broken. I'm not sure about what the problem is, but it seems all the meta keys have gone bananas. In Linux I would simply solve it by pressing all the Metas like ctrl, alt etc, but this doesn't work here.

So, right now; Screen Lock is the same as Reboot computer. Do you have any advice for me?

Thanks.

im using windows pro sp2. last week i had downloaded something and then i started to get advertisements even when a browser wasnt open. it was about 3 different ones but went off every 30 secs to 5 mins. i went through some windows files in safe mode deleted some things here n there and ending processes.
i was successful in stopping the advertisements. although not long afterwards the internet would stop after 5 mins and i would have to keep restarting. once i tried to system restore it wont go back past the day i started having this internet problem. im not sure if its related to the previous problem or if i deleted a file i should not have?

The file mscfco.exe doesn't look right, I'm moving this to our HJT forum for those folks to have a look.

The touch function keys are much more difficult to use than the mechanical keys on previous models. You have to be accurate, you have to watch, you have to touch for long enough.  And the adaptive smarts often replace the function keys with other keys at the wrong time.  The Thinkpad X1 Carbon Touch would be perfect if it had mechanical function keys.

I just bought a new PC All-in-one Z3-710. However the touch function on the screen is not working. Could anyone assist me to fix the issue.

Answer:How do I enable touch function on Z3-710 PC screen...

Not all Z3-710 models have a touchscreen. Can you shoot me a private message with your serial number so I can verify that your specific model supports that feature?

Hi, I have a lenovo M92z touchscreen all in one computer with Windows 7 64-bit. I have updated the bios to the latest version (9NKT73A). It is about 5-7 years old and no longer under warranty. I have tried:installing this touchscreen driver (http://pcsupport.lenovo.com/us/en/downloads/ds029324)using the windows troubleshooterusing the device manager to scan for hardware changessearching the device manager for a HID-compliant Touchscreen (it is not there)Windows UpdatesTurning off Tablet PC Components Windows features and then turning them back on after a restart.Flashing the Bios to the current version aboveI'm at a loss. I didn't think the touchscreen hardware would go bad before the other components so I'm very much inclined to think it is somehow software related. It acts as though it never has had touch functionallity. Any thoughts? Thanks in advance!
