Lenovo Thinkpad Tablet 2 Won't Update to WIndows 10

Question: Lenovo Thinkpad Tablet 2 Won't Update to WIndows 10

Hi all.
I am running into some trouble and would like to know if anyone here is having the same issue. Hopefully, I'm not the only one with a Thinkpad Tablet 2 here.
I went to update my tablet to Windows 10 yesterday and ran into a few problems. Windows 10 was not downloading correctly and I would get a Windows Update error. Finally, when I got up this morning the update was ready. However, I have now hit a new snag. Hence why I come to you good sirs.
When I click on the update icon on the system tray, it gives me an error. The screen states:
"Unfortunately, this PC is unable to run Windows 10."
"We're sorry to let you know that this PC can't upgrade to Windows 10 because one or more things are incompatible."
Then on the right, it states:
"Compatibility issue:
Intel Graphics Media Accelerator
The display manufacturer hasn't made your display compatible with Windows 10. Check with the manufacturer for support."
Here's a screenshot:
Can anyone tell me what I can do about this? I've already gone to Intel and Lenovo and updated everything they have and still nothing. Would mounting and running the ISO work? Would anyone even recommend that considering the warning about incompatibility?
Thanks in advance and I hope to hear from you all soon.

Hi,
i update my tablet to windows 10 from 8.1, but all driver are not working well. The network, wifi, the buttons, the touchscreen and the audio. I tried all the driver in the Lenovo drivers webpage, but no one works even if they are for windows 10.
any ideas?

Answer:How can I get the driver on my Lenovo Thinkpad Tablet 2 working on Windows 10?

i've heard that thinkpad t2 doesn't handly w10 because of issue with the intel video driver, most drivers should work, go to lenovo page and install w8.1 drivers that maybe resolv the error, if not, go to windows update and see if there's any driver update, download and restart the lenovo.
if not, you should go back to 8.1 maybe it's for the best, also do you have the latest bios firmware? look for me in fb if you have any questions, i'm seba rodriguez.

I wanted to give my impressions of the Lenovo TPT2. First off, the model I have is the 3679-27U, this means that it has the digitizer pen, windows 8 pro, no NFC, no 3G/4G antenna (though there is a slot for a SIM card). Let me also be frank about my biases concerning tablets. I am not a voracious media consumer. If Im going to watch a movie or TV program I prefer to do so with a large screen TV in the comfort of my living room. As far as checking email, messaging, twitter, and facebook that is why I have a smartphone. Why do I need another piece of electronic equipment that does the exact same thing as my smartphone? In my opinion iPADs and Android tablets are really only good for media consumption, they give you a slightly larger screen to run the same apps that your phone runs. If Im going to buy a tablet it has to provide some functionality that my phone or laptop cannot, otherwise it is a waste of money. Therefore, a tablet had to be able to run productivity programs: MS Office, Photoshop, Illustrator, GB-Stats, etc That meant a tablet using either the Atom processor or a Core processor (i3, i5). This left out not only Apple and Android but also any tablets running Windows 8 RT. Obviously one the major advantages of a tablet is its size and portability. My laptop is a comfortable size and fairly easy to carry around, so what advantage would a tablet give me. The answer is battery life. In order to be practical I would need a laptop with a significantly longer run time tha... Read more

Answer:The Lenovo Thinkpad Tablet 2: Everything a tablet should be

Nice review. I have had my TPT2 for a little over a month now. I have used it extensively as my only device away from the office and have been able to do so without adjusting my computing needs too much. The only drawback that I have had is an under-powered USB port where i am unable to attach my external hard drive. Anything that I knew I was going to need for the day or trip I load onto a USB stick and problem averted.
Edit: I suppose I should mention that my usage is not too intense in terms of productivity. My programs of choice are typically the Microsoft Office package. I do a lot with excel, word, and power point and so far, I haven't run into any issues. I'm in the process of getting a new monitor for home and i'll have a better idea what it's like running a multiple monitor setup from the TPT2 and mini HDMI to HDMI connection. At this point I have a BT keyboard and Mouse which I have been using for the past few days with no issues (except when the battery is close to dying in the keyboard and it behaves as if it is possessed).
I might be one of the lucky ones but haven't had any issues with the wifi signal, sleep issues others have experienced, etc. Outside of the USB and mini HDMI to VGA issues, I'm still completely satisfied. If Wacom could update the drivers to enhance the accuracy of pen input, then I'd be completely satisfied given my particular usage patterns.

Spoiler (Highlight to read)IMPORTANT!!IMPORTANT!!Friends from Lenovo,Yesterday I did the update to the new version of Windows 10, called Windows 10 Fall Creators Update or Windows 10, version 1709, and after the update was done I find out that the hotkey driver, that controls the Fn commands on the keyboard of my Lenovo ThinkPad X220, doesn`t work correctly with this new version of Windows 10. Therefore, I would like to know what can I do to fix this issue, so the hotkey commands work properly again in my notebook, or if it is going to be an update of this file (8jvu43ww.exe) that I could install in my notebook to fix this issue. Could you please tell me what can I do to make the Fn commands work properly with the new update of Windows 10 (Windows 10 Fall Creators Update) or if it is going to be an update of the hotkeys that is compatible with the new version of Windows 10?I look forward to hear your comments, and I hope you already have an idea, an answer to solve this issue. Yours truly,Cristián Palau

Answer:Lenovo ThinkPad X220 Hotkey Update for Windows 10 Fall Creators Update

I need a thinkpad tablet that has a 14'' or above display. X230t, helix, twist all have only 12'', too small for work purposes. x-1 carbon touch has 14'', but it's only touch not tablet. I need tablet because I'd like to read pdfs and write notes on them. Touch is vertical and therefore not convenient for this purpose. Does Lenovo have any plan to market a 14'' thinkpad tablet any time soon? Thanks.

Answer:Does Lenovo have any plan for a 14'' thinkpad tablet?

Not sure how much of a help this is to you (it's a work-around). However, with a separate/detachable keyboard option (available for most tablets of any brand) as well as a separate (non-dockable) accessory pen, you can draw and physically type on most any tablet now-adays. I've seen a ton of pressure sensitive, aftermarket pen designs on Kickstarter, similar sites and elsewhere, that use various technologies to enable drawing and writing for just about any device.  It's not elegant, it's not ideal, but it's worth considering if your in the market for a new machine.  Probably worth testing first/reading significant reviews on each piece before you buy as well.  But it may open up many options for you.

Xp tablet was never offered to the general public for sale.  It was only made available to the manufacturers.
 
So, the only way to get xp tablet pc on your tablet will be to obtain a set of restore discs.  You can try to obtain a set through Lenovo support.  If you are unable to purchase or if they are unavailable, you can get them from the link.  I've bought a few sets of restore discs over the years from them and haven't had any problems.

Hello everyone. Few days ago my laptop has made some update itself. And now I got few problems. First I noticed that my Google Chrome started to NOT respond. Then I couldn't even open any Folder on my PC. I tried to reset it with 10 second pressing on/off button.But nothing has changed. On the second day when I tried to zoom in on my Touch Screen, noticed that it doesn't work. Neither does keyboard on screen working. I have reinstalled my PC. Waited for half a day.... and it showed ALPS Apoint2k isn't working. I have tried everything. Downloading new drivers from manufacturer, scaning Windows and all that. Today I found out that there is no Tablet PC settings on my laptop anymore. When writing in Windows Search TABLET PC SETTINGS, it comes that " Tablet Buttons are not installed on this computer" "For more information,check the documentation that came with your computer or go to the computer manufacturer's website" Can anyone help me,please?((

Twice now, my Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet Digitizer Pen - stylus has dropped out of the tablet only to be found later on my family room floor.   Given the expensive price tag on these pens (Office Depot has for $65), it would be nice if these pens could be locked into place so that they don't come up "missing" for whatever reason.   Has anyone else found a way to keep better track of their pen, short of not putting it in the holder on the tablet? Joe

Answer:Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet Digitizer Pen - stylus

Have you tried to tether it to your tablet?  There is a hole in the stylus clip and the tablet that you can use.  Beyond that, you can send it in to have the stylus catch replaced and see if that helps.

welcome to the community!
 
please check to make sure your trackpad is not disabled in your bios.
 
for reference, on my t60p, i have the trackpad disabled in bios because i never use it ( trackpoint evangelist here ). regardless, when i'm at the windows 7 login screen, my trackpad is active. as soon as i'm logged in and i've got a windows desktop, the trackpad is inactive. i'm not sure why i have that small window where it works, but there it is, fwiw.

If it is under warranty, call for service, rather than dealing with it. The first step is to unplug it and remove the battery. Press the power button 5 times, holding it for 10 seconds on the last push. Put it back together; plug it in, and try again.

Hi, welcome to the forums.
 
Can you please post the full model number of your Thinkpad Yoga 14?
Are you using Windows 10?
 
I may suggest you first to try to update the Wifi drivers and maybe some other of the system driver of you Yoga.
Here are my general tips:
 
1) Try first Windows Update and update all the drivers and Patches
2) Try Lenovo System Update to get any new/missing drivers.
3) Try to install Lenovo Settings and Lenovo Companion from the Windows App Store, Lenovo Companion also has a "update driver search"
4) Sometimes all that software does not recognize some updated / missing driver. Check Lenovo's Support Site and search for your specific model drivers (use the full model number of your Thinkpad).
 
After that we can try a little bit more. For example I also like to test it on some other Wifi networks just to be sure it is not a compatibility issue with the Wifi Router.

Hello,  I'm having some trouble with turning on my laptop. The problem originally started when some keys on my keyboard stopped working. I cleaned the keys, restarted my laptop, tried a previous restore point and then did a hard reset after nothing worked to fix my laptop.  After hard resetting, I tried turning on my laptop and it did not turn on. So far, I've plugged in my laptop into the adaptor, plugged the adaptor directly into the wall outlet, and removed the battery and plugged in the laptop. The one thing I have noticed with my laptop is that when I plug in the adaptor, the battery and sleep lights turn on for a moment, then the sleep light turns off, and the battery light will stay on momentarily but then it will blink off after a few seconds. What else should I do? Thank you

I currently use a Lenovo ThinkPad S1 Yoga, and have recently upgraded the 64-bit OS from Windows 8.1 to 10.Since then I have been experiencing issues where ?Tablet Mode? will activate suddenly and randomly while I am using my ultrabook in laptop mode. This is especially frustrating because it often occurs while I am using the keyboard which will then be disabled, and cannot be re-enabled. I have attempted to turn on/off the various Tablet Mode settings ? ?Make Windows more touch-friendly??, ?When I sign in...?, ?When this device automatically??, ?Hide app icons??, but no pair of settings seemed to work. In the end, I am forced to reboot, which is the only solution that resolves the matter. What steps can I take to resolve this matter once and for all without having to restart the system constantly?

I can suggest you to try to update your drivers, here are some of my tips to update the drivers on a Thinkpad when going to Windows 10.
 
These are some of my tips to update the drivers of your Thinkpad:

I know there are multiple threads where people posted chat transcripts where they were told Nov 16th was the release day. I did the same thing to see what I would be told, and was told "we cannot, say, but sometime in Nov".

I am excited.
I wish it hand a dockable keyboard similar to the Samsung and Asus Win 8 x86 tablets, but 11.6" seems to be too big and hefty to use primarily in "tablet mode". Something lighter and thinner than the iPad seems to be a perfect tradeoff for a smaller screen...for me anyway.

Hallo! Verkacktes Windows 10 Creators Update, seit der Installation des Creators Updates auf meiner Thinkpad P70 Workstation hakt, ruckelt und hat meine Thinkpad Bluetooth Laser Mouse Aussetzer. Sämtliche neuen Treiber von Lenovo und auch Treiber die Windows Update gezogen hat, bzw. Treiber direkt von der Intel Homepage für das Intel 8260 Bluetooth bringen keine Lösung. Ein Auswechseln der Batterien hilft auch nichts. Also vermute ich, dass einfach eine frühere Treiberversion des Bluetooths für das Thinkpad P70 die Probleme des Ruckeln am Thinkpad P70 lösen. Wo bekomme ich die Lenovo Treiber für das Bluetooth am P70 für Win 10 64 bit her?Auf der Lenovo Treiberseite sind nur mehr die aktuellen verfügbar. Bitte um Hilfe.

Answer:Lenovo Thinkpad Bluetooth Laser Mouse hakt und ruckelt seit Creators Update am Thinkpad P70 ...

I got the same problem.... But first let me translate this for everybody here.  My P70 (or in my case P71) has a problem to keep the connection estimated between the Lenovo mouse and my Laptop. Got the current driver installed.  The German guy above me got the same issue after the creators update.   I set everything Bluetooth related in Device Manager up to NOT let windows turn of the device to save power.  The mouse cuts out for 5 sec and comes back on. If you turn the mouse upside down during that time I noticed that the battery led toggles on and off. So it reboots. So I assume it's driver related to because it worked perfectly fine before on the L530 guys machine.

I don't see why you want to update your graphics drivers. If it works, it works. If there aren't any bugs there is nothing to worry about. And as far as gaming performance goes, it is still going to be slow and barely going to make a difference.If the generic drivers from Intel, Nvidia or AMD work use those. But make sure that brightness keys etc work correctly.

Hi, I have via the Lenovo online updater updated my laptop with the sad result that my screen is just always black. I can see and hear the laptop boot up, but nothing on the screen. I have tried to attach external monitors both with HDMI and VGA cable, still nothing.Does anyone have any other suggestion for me to try?? The update i ran contained both drivers and bios. Nothing of it seemed to fail but still there is black screen

After several minutes into the update I got the message that the ISD driver must be uninstalled! Why it couldn't tell me that before when checking my system for the update is a MS glitch I think. I stopped the update.
 
This driver is for the touch screen in tablet mode I think so will that facility not work in Win 10 or will there be a Win 10 ISD driver?
 
I cannot find out from the Lenovo support sites but from Googling 'Win 10 update for ISD driver' I got the Lenovo page link http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/downloads/ds041384 which I don't understand.
 
Can anyone please enlighten me on this matter - thanks.

Answer:Win 10 update problem for Lenovo X201 Tablet (ISD driver)

It relates to WinTab which is for pen pressure - nothing about ISD driver - this is my non understanding.

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

I see a subject line which already asks this question in the knowledgebase, however I can't open the link so I'm asking this question as a duplicate, my apologies in advance..So, basically, is this possible?  I don't see any Win-7 drivers available for the TP Tablet 2.  I'm assuming that Windows 7 isn't supported then, unless I attempt to load the Win-8 drivers on a Win-7 install.I'm quite disappointed with the TP Tablet 2 running Windows 8.  The response times on anything from opening a webpage, changing to another webpage, opening apps, etc is very slow.  I was hoping that if Windows 7 was supported, then I might just get better performance with this tablet however it could just end up with the same performance for all I know.  I won't know until I try but I don't want to go through the install process just to find out that I don't have any driver support for Win-7. I'm thinking that I should have purchased a Helix... TBD... Any feedback would be appreciated, thank you!!!

Alright so I got a used IBM Thinkpad X41 from my uncle which had windows xp installed on it. He asked me to reformat it so his companys information and other data would be fully erased. Some specs on the X41:Does not have CD/DVD Drive so I can't install windows that way.Does have USB slots, so I think that will be the only way to install (correct me if I am wrong).  Me being a complete newbie, I full erased the hard drive (so there is no OS). The laptop still turns on but when i let it run it says: Media Test Failure, Check CableExiting Broadcom PXE ROMOperating System Not Found Luckily the Bios still works and I can access it but there is nothing I can do to restore it back to factory state or recover. The Bios does detect my usb drive and I have placed that in the number one spot for boot order. If there is anyway I can get an OS installed onto my pc I would be grateful. Note I don't need to install XP on the first install, If installing windows 98 or 95 will be faster and easier we can do that. I can take it from there as all I will need is the xp install files which i have copied from my cd to my computers share folders. Thanks again hopefully there is a solution to my problem, I'd really like to have this laptop for school as im going into grade 12.

Hi all, I can see the drivers and some of the software support for Win7 64bit but after looking through some of the FAQ and online manuals I can not find a guide that details out in what order the drivers and other support software are to be reinstalled. Does one just install ThinkVantage and let it take over? Background:  This is a ThinkPad that was upgraded from 2 GB and maxed out to 8 GB and the user already tried to reinstall Windows and removed the diagnostic partition.  They managed to get everything working except that the touch screen would only work with the stylus and not finger touch.   So the assumption at this point is that a driver was installed in the wrong order or the wrong driver was installed. Best,A

Hello! I have a Lenovo ThinkPad 13. I have been having issues with the built in computer in my laptop, and when I called support, they suggested installing the updates Lenovo Companion recommended for me. So I did, and they all downloaded just fine except for the ThinkPad BIOS Update. I have tried over and over again to get it to download, but it just keeps failing. What should I do?

Answer:Lenovo Thinkpad 13 Unable to Update BIOS

Good day and welcome to the community.You could try to apply the BIOS update manually.
If you click the "Support" link at the top left of the page, and then enter the first four characters of you machine's MT-M (machine type-model) number, you should land on your support pages. From there, you can download the BIOS installer and proceed with the update. I'd recommend reading through the readme file to see if there's anything interesting being fixed/updated, though. If your machine is running fine, the BIOS update may not be critical.Regards.

Dear community, I found my screen starts flickering not long after I upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 10 on my thinkpad x200 tablet. It happens especially when I have an external monitor connected to the laptop and when I maximize a Microsoft Edge brower on screen. Scrolling the mouse will trigger the lines on a page flickering back and forth or partially disappeared. This is really annoying when I want to scroll down a little bit to find some useful information. I have tried to use the "sfc /scannow" command to identify potential problems and to reinstall compatible Thinkpad graphics and video drivers, but no luck. I have also tried other solutions that I can find online (like disabling the issue reporting service), yet still this problem persists. I contacted Microsoft for their assistance, and they suggest me to ask the manufacture to solve this problem. Does anyone know how to fix this problem? Thanks,Qi

Lenovo Thinkpad W550s, originally Windows 7 Pro, updated to Win 10 Pro more than a year ago. Since Anniversary update was applied (only a week ago), I see that Control Panel is now inoperative. It is possible that this problem occurred before Anniversary, but I know I used CP around 4 weeks earlier.

How and What: in search bar, type "control panel". It opens and then I get the green "progress bar" at the top as it apparently searches for additional control modules. It never stops searching. And now if I click on any item in the panel, it hangs up with spinning wheel. And then I cannot bring up Task Manager by right-click on the Date-time at lower right. I can still interact with the already open web browser. Attempting to access anything else in CP tells me it is "not responding".

How to Kill Control Panel: after some time if I right click on the CP is the taskbar, I will not see a context menu. However, suddenly the entire task bar blanks out and then re-writes itself - and the CP icon is gone.

What else: I can run the much less useful Windows 10 "settings" app. And in it I am able to access things such as Device Manager. So I'm not hosed, just very annoyed.
I suspect some Lenovo bug, but have absolutely no evidence for this - it's just that I'm pretty sour on Lenovo after buying this Thinkpad (but the keyboard and pointing stick are excellent!).

Has anybody else encountered trouble like this?

Answer:Control Panel freezes since anniversary update - Lenovo Thinkpad

Hi, no, not noted a report like this yet. My CP is fine, build 14393.222.

Could you post your build number? (Windows key + R, type winver).

If you create a new user account for test purposes, do you see the same thing?
And in Safe Mode?

I used the thinkvantage system update software to update my power manager and hotkey on screen display features, once upgraded/updated I can no longer control the brightness with the keyboard buttons or any other method. I cannot change power manager profiles either, the only way i resolved this was to reload my pc to its original factory settings thinking the problem was only with power manager. After reloading the pc i Didn't update power manager but updated the hotkey on screen display features with the system update from thinkvantage and now im almost back to square one, now I don't want to update my power manager.

To be a windows 8 certified device with touch screen feature, it has to have at least 5 points touch. The X220t and X230t uses a 2 point touch screen, so they do not meet the minimum requirement for Windows 8.

Then I downloaded the Intel Driver Update Utility to update the graphics driver, but nothing can be found there. Back to Windows 7, the Intel Driver works fine for me and gave OpenGL ~2.2 support.

Answer:How to replace hard drive in ThinkPad X201 Tablet running Windows 7 64-bit

Hi, btownsend
 
I found the Personal Systems Reference for your machine, which you can also see here (X201T section begins on page CML3-7). According to this, the standard SATA port for disk drives in the X201T takes a 2.5 inch drive, so any drive compatible with SATA 3.0 that is 2.5 inches x 9 mm should work fine. 
 
As for moving things to the new drive, I would either use backup discs or a backup USB drive to save everything and then use that media to refresh everything once the new drive is installed.
 
Hope it helps,Adam

After a reboot, during Windows startup, the screen glitches out again and it completely powers off. System restore removes the driver and restores the ability to boot.
I've installed the driver from both Lenovo and a newer one from Intel and get the same result.
Windows has the driver already and I'm not opposed to leaving it the way it is, I'm just really wondering about this issue and would like to eventually update.
This happens on both Windows 7 and Windows 10, by the way.

Thanks in advance!

I just got an E540 and upon a Windows install, after updating the AHCI driver, the screen glitches out (crazy colors, lines, etc) and the system locks up. After a reboot, during Windows startup, the screen glitches out again and it completely powers off. System restore removes the driver and restores the ability to boot.

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

Does anybody else got that problem?? Do you have any solution?? Please..Still to that date, when I try to install the drivers it shows that the version is not compatable.

Here is my question, it contians an image of the cursor in question, I guess I'm wondering if it has something to do with the Lenovo software that's installed on it.  Not too long ago we removed Quickboot, so I wonder if this has anything to do wtih it.

My S1 Yoga, 20CD-00B1US, is stuck with the screen off and the power LED stuck on. When I try to push or hold the power button it beeps two short beeps and the LED stays solid. I was running the Lenovo Bios Update Software directly from their site. The power cord was plugged in and no other programs were running (aside from background programs). Now it is just stuck like this. Any thoughts or help would be great. I can't even get it to force shut off. Thank you in advance!

Hi I'm having a problem with upgrading to windows 7 I get these two messages 1 uninstall the Tablet button Coinstaller wich I cannot find. 2 upgrade Infrared devices IBM Thinkpad Fast Infrared Port which everytime I try to upgrade or download a new driver it does not make a difference. Any help is greatly appreciated I never thought this would be so difficult as I have done quite a few upgrades on other Pc's and laptops

Answer:Upgrade to Windows 7 on Lenovo X60 Tablet

You may have already done this but have you run the latest Thinkvantage System update (4.0) - I found I had to run this a number of times before all the correct drivers loaded. you can find it at:http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?lndocid=TVSU-UPDATE Dave

2 days ago I ordered the Lenovo yoga 2 10". It fills in everything were I was looking for in a 10" tablet.
I wanted a HD screen, long battery life, a screen cover (keyboard nice but not necessary), easy to hold in the hand, a standard and ad least 2 gig ram and 32 GB storage. The yoga 2 was one of the few that has it all.
There were not many reviews of it and no store has it around here in stock. I found 1 Android version. I hold it in my hand and it felt good right away. The screen just looked great. I looked on YouTube but I just found a few video reviews about it and wat i found was positive. Also on this forum i did not found anything about it.
These are some specs:
CPU Z3745
Screen 1920x1200
Ram 2 gig
Storage 32 GB
Micro USB
Bluetooth 4.0
Micro HDMI
15 our battery life
A Bluetooth keyboard that also works as a cover

I just upgraded my Yoga 2 with Windows 8 factory to Windows 10. So far, it's extremely slow and lagy. Are there features I can turn off like I can in Windows 7 in the system advanced tab to speed up the system? Turn off all the animation stuff, etc...

Here are a few suggestions:

Launch an elevated Command prompt and enter the following commands, then restart your machine

Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth
SFC /SCANNOW
exit
Both commands take quite a while - 20 minutes or more (each)

If the above commands don't help, try a refresh (repair install - keeps your data) or a reset (clean install - all data lost)
Do the refresh first, then if necessary try the reset
See:
Refresh Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums
Reset Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums

I don't see anything in the machine specs that would cause the issue you're seeing. The only thing that caught my attention was Windows 8, not Windows 8.1. If all else fails, you might consider putting Windows 8 back on the machine and upgrading to 8.1 - it's a pain ... I know.

Also consider dual booting instead of overwritting your primary OS.
See: Windows 10 - Dual Boot with Windows 7 or Windows 8 - Windows 10 Forums

This saves you a headache if things don't go as expected - you still have your primary OS and you can install Win10 builds when they are available.

I understand people want to test the upgrade and that's a good thing. When you have tested that path... Read more

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

I have regualrly run a System Update for my computer via Lenovo Companion and I've managed to have all updates successfully completed - all except for one. Lately, I have runs of Updates where I encounter an update for Synaptic UltraNav Driver, run it, but comes up as being unable to download and install - in spite of a successful initial download. Since its encounter a couple of weeks ago, I have been unsuccessful in fully downloading and installing this specific Driver for my computer. Is there any indication of issues for this Drive? And what should I do to resolve it? Also, if the Driver can't be properly updated, what is its purpose for my system? Any form of help concerning this Driver update issue would be appreciated.

I am trying to work on OBD2 bluetooth car dongles and, because of traditional Windows difficulties with phantom serial port retention, I needed to find a machine with little in the way of features that could confuse me by having many serial ports already in use. I also wanted to use Windows 10 to look at its enhanced features eg bluetooth in Microsoft Message Analyser. My old X200T looked ideal. It worked perfectly in W7 and provided pen and single touch, thus being ideal for working in the front seat of a vehicle. The update to W10 went well, and the pen works fine, but single touch does nothing. At one stage in thrashing about with drivers, I had it working on the touch calibration on-screen "targets", but it did nothing when I touched the on-screen touch pads. Even that has now stopped working. I think the problem may be related to the fact that Microsoft is telling me that it has Pen and Touch support with 2 Touch points. If I uninstall everything related to Wacom and reboot, Pen disappears, but Touch with 2 touch points always comes back. Has anyone else seen this and found a workaround?

Hi guys, I bought a ibm x41 laptop for a young artist on a $60 budget. I figure I throw in some money and time to make it usable. Problem with xp tablet edition 2005 is I'm getting 'tablet version mismatch' alert when booting up Photoshop and Manga studio. How do I iron out that issue as pressure sensitivty is quite erratic with it. Only Photoshop cs6 is problematic with pressure while sketchbook pro and manga studio is all good. I tried uninstallling the wacom and hid interface drivers manually and tried installing whatever lenovo provides on their site. All see to work now except the conflict in Manga Studio and Photoshop. I think windows 7 would be ideal to use but weary as the current hdd it takes as this drive is only 40gb.If previous or current owners have a method to correct drivers you'll make a young artist very happy. Thanks in advance.

Answer:Are you going to update your tablet to Windows 10????

I have it installed on our HP X2 10.6 32gb. Would not initially install as it said it was a compressed OS. Made a bootable USB, and formatted the drive. Install went fine, but I needed to install drivers. Took awhile. But now it is going strong.
