x1 carbon yoga 2nd gen keyboard row not deploying properly

Question: x1 carbon yoga 2nd gen keyboard row not deploying properly

When my yoga arrived, the A-L row did not properly pop out when I opened up the lid- I managed to get the row to pop out by pushing the K key slightly upwards, but the entire row still seems recessed even after doing that. The row occasionally still sticks down when flipping between tablet mode and opening the laptop, and almost always sticks when the laptop's been closed for a few hours.Is this a common problem (preferrably one with a common solution) ? It seems like the row of keys might have a downwards bow in it or something similar, if that helps. It really sucks to type on and I'd love to fix this without sending it in for repairs.

Hi all, I would like to know more about the differences between the Yoga's and X1 Carbon's keyboard.  I mean, I've seen the layouts and the relevant specs (somewhat different key arrangements, Yoga's smaller right Shift and Enter keys, X1's backlit, etc.), but I would really like to learn a bit more from those of you who had the chance to use both about how they compare in overall feel, comfort, vertical key travel, tactile feedback, and all that. Are they both essentially based on the same mechanics, are we at least in the same ballpark, or were there  actually  two design/engineering teams at work coming out with similar-looking but notably different keyboards from intensive typist's point of view? I write and code a lot, so for me the keyboard is really a make-it-or-break-it thing.  Would very much appreciate any help.

Answer:Yoga vs. X1 Carbon keyboard

Comfort, vertical key travel and tactile feedback, the X1 Carbon keyboard wins hand down. This is like comparing Ferrari 458 (X1C) and Alfa Romeo 158 (Yoga) on road handling ability.

I used the 1st gen X1 Carbon for a while and found out that it's very robust and the touch feeling is very good. I guessed that all sides (A+B+C+D) of it are made by carbon fiber. Correct me if I'm wrong. But when I use my X1 Yoga 1st gen, which has only carbon fiber on A side (the cover behind screen) and uses "Super Magnesium" on C+D sides (the cover around keyboard and behind the keyboard), this design bring several problems: 1. " Super Magnesium" is still metal, if you crash it by accident, you may leave a scrath on it permanently, this happens more on edges;2. what's more, the paint at the edge of " Super Magnesium" will be rubbed away with time goes on, and you will see the white metal not the ThinkPad black;3. metal will suffer from deformation by force;4. the D side of my X1 yoga feels loose when you hold it with one hand, which make you feel cheap of this $1500 machine. Thus I hope the next gen of X1 Yoga or X1 Carbon can provide a pure carbon fiber version, for better build quality and user experience. How do you guys think about it?

Looking at top end of both. 16GB/512 SSD/etc. What is the major difference between those lines of product? Also, the Compare feature just does not seem to work on any browser. Have tried many different machines. Just shows half a CO at the top right, and a black bar and nothing happens. Strange. Is the only difference between the Platinum and the Clementine Orange Edition of the 900, that the OS is Windows 10 Pro vs Home? There is a $30 dollar differerence between those OS's on competitive sites, so I'm just wondering if that is it for almost $150 difference? Or does the Platinum have a different case construction? Thanks!

Hello,Is there any way to replace the keyboard of X1C 3rd gen with the keyboard of 2nd gen?  

Answer:keyboard of X1 Carbon 2nd gen on X1 Carbon 3rd gen

Quote from this thread:[quote]Gen 2 keyboard has 2 inputs: Dynamic Function Board (DFB)(5pin) + power button (3pin) ---> 8pin on MB side, and regular keyboard. However, Gen 3 keyboard's Fn is integrated to keyboard cable but not 8pin input (only 3 pin power button). Embeded Controller Chip (EB) is still taking this as Gen 2 input. So Fn is not mapped at EC level. Since EC is part of UEFI BIOS, you need remove BIOS chip from MB and reprogram the EC firmware to make it work.[/quote]

 HiI own a X1 Carbon Gen 2 thinkpad and wonder if it is possible to replace the current keyboard with a X1 Carbon gen 3 keyboard (with proper mouse buttons), or if it will not fit?I have tried to check the manuals and the connectors seems similar although some things, such as the fingerprint reader, seems different. I have no problem "loosing" the adaptive keyboard and fingerprint reader if I can have all the functionality of the keyboard and trackpoint on the new "keyboard" (i.e. the gen 3 frontpanel).

Answer:X1 Carbon Gen 3 Keyboard on X1 Carbon Gen 2

I am interested in this exact topic as well. Looks like the Gen 3 keyboards lack the adaptive keyboard - that clear stripe on the top that changes. The FRU for these X1 Carbons seem to be the whole keyboard, adaptive part, trackpad and bezel - they go for 150 USD or so. Problem is we don't know if it will work given the model year differences. A nice alternative would be just to replace the trackpoint. They came close with this one, but it is no macbook in terms of tactile feel of the pad. I really am having a hard time with it and it's been about a month.  Lenovo please help!

How do I disable touchpad in tent, stand tablet mode? Issue 2: Soft keyboard shows up in Microsoft software, however it does not show up when typing in other software, Firefox, Lightroom etc. Is there a way to make this work? Issue 3: In full resolution Windows scale bad, as several computers now delivers with this high resolution and 4K monitors will be more common, is there a fix from Microsoft to get normal scaling?

I've been trying to find a solid review on the internet comparing these two X1 systems head to head, but no luck so far. The touchscreen and stylus capabilities of the X1 Yoga are nice but not absolutely necessary. I'm worried if the build quality and reliability matches that of the X1 Carbon (X1 Yoga has more moving parts, raising keyboard platform, more mobility in hinges, laptop mode changes reliability, touchscreen reliability, etc), in light of ongoing Lenovo quality control issues. Not that the X1 Carbon is without issues of its own. If the touch and pen capabilities are a "nice to have" feature for someone and not required, are they more trouble then they're worth, given quality issues? Or are the concerns overblown? Would also like to know if the QHD screens used in both systems are identical in terms of brightness, color accuracy, and viewing angles. Same screen manufacturer? Do both keyboards have the same key travel and quality of feel while typing? Would be great if there was a review comparing both directly. Has anyone had hands-on experience with both? Thanks!

The bottom edge of the 'L' key keeps popping up.  It has been that way since the day I received it - I simply have not had the time to look at replacing it - until now. If I pop the key off, it looks like a tiny lug underneath was broken when first put on the keyboard.  The key just needs to be replaced. I've spent an hour on the support website trying to understand how you order such a simple part, but I cant find anything.  Totally confused how support works. I have 3 year onsite warranty - so should be all covered. Can someone give me a clue?  Do I just call a number in Australia, go to a dealer, order on the website (where?)?

X1 Carbon Yoga 1st GenModel number: 20FQCTO1WW It worked great since I received. One day I upgraded BIOS to the latest (it was v1.23 by the time), then I noticed the fan keeps running regardless the actual CPU usage. Very occasionally, fan will stop and start again soon. Often time, the fan will start to run as soon as the laptop is turned on. It's quite annoying because of the fan noise (even though it's not so loud), and I'm sure it will cause more battery consumption.  Recently I upgraded to the latest v1.24 BIOS, but the problem was still the same. Anybody has the same issue? A bug in recent BIOS firmware?

Hello all,I just bought a Yoga 2 Pro today, and I saw it had the same style power plug as my X1 Carbon. However, when I plug it in, I get a message saying "The power adapter does not match up with the computer and cannot supply power."  I find this surprising because I've always been able to swap between power supplies on Lenovos for as long as I've owned them. It's really part of what made them so friendly. I would expect that the 60W adapter might not work on the X1, but its surprising the X1's 90W adapter wont work on the Yoga. Any advice would be appreciated.Thanks

Please Lenovo. Please. When you one finger click on the TouchPad in the bottom right corner, it performs a Right Click action. If you want to ONLY Left Click (Primary) for every one finger click on the TouchPad, no matter where you click on the TouchPad, you CAN NOT DO THIS with the current driver. You've made a lot of updates in the driver, but you can't disable this setting? You are forcing me to have a zone that does Right Click action on the bottom right of the TouchPad. Guess what, I click that spot about 200 times a day and have to mouse the mouse to click out of the TouchPad right click menu, then go back and click again what I want to click on. There is no setting to remove the Bottom right corner for Right Click action. It is always on, unless you turn off the TouchPad. Two finger click performs Right Click action no problem on the TouchPad, but we need the ability to have every one finger click be the Left Click (Primary) action, not a zone in the bottom right corner that always does a Rigt click action. All my other TouchPad issues are fixes such as Scroll delay. I used Change PC Settings in Windows 8.1 > PC and Devices > Mouse and TouchPad > TouchPad Set Delay to NONE T440s, ThinkPad Yoga, X1 Carbon user 1st generation. Windows 8.1 Update.

I bought this awesome, lovely and exquisite piece of technology innovation in August 2014.I have come to India and everyone loves it.Everything was fine until the last Saturday morning when I was typing an email. I got on a phone call for a while and it went in sleep mode. Pretty normal. I concluded the call and touched the space bar expecting the normal, quick wake up and the login screen. The login screen came up alright, but the password box was already filled. I tried to use backspace to clear the box and I missed a heartbeat! Nothing seemed to happen.So I force shut it holding the power button and after a minute bring it up again. Same scene!This has continued. I am going to be in India for a few months.

Answer:Yoga 2 Pro Keyboard continuously floods characters in the keyboard buffer

I have this same problem but with my Y510p. It floods the 'Q' character.
 
The only solution which seems possible is a keyboard replacement (unless the connecting port is damaged, which is highly unlikely). I have ordered a keyboard and it is on the way.
 
As for your scenario, I would say that if you friend is going to be in US for more than 2 months then it is fine to send it with him for repairs. You could also order a keyboard online and replace it yourself (I ordered on ebay).
Check your manual on lenovo website for supported keyboard part number.
 
Tip -
To disable a malfunctioning keyboard like yours, you can either disconnect it physically (like you did)
OR
You can go into Control Panel > Device Manager > Keyboards
Select the laptop keyboard and manually install a wrong keyboard driver.
This way the keyboard wont be recognized and wont work.

While in laptop mode, and typing on the built-in physical keyboard or a keyboard attached via USB, the on-screen keyboard will randomly pop up, taking away focus (particularly noticeable when using extended desktop on an external display) and eating up half of the screen real estate.  As soon as I press the next key on the physical board, the on-screen keyboard minimizes itself.  Sometimes it will pop up when I'm not even touching the laptop! Anyone else experience this and/or know how to stop it?  It's the only thing about this machine that drives me absolutely nuts.  It seems to be random.  I can't pin it down and haven't found any similar reports via Google search. Thanks in advance.

I know all of the newer lenovo models have the accutype keyboard, but I heard the X1C had to sacrifice keystroke depth in order to keep it thin. Is there anyone out there who can compare the accutype keyboards of the X1C and another lenovo? Would be great if someone could clarify this for me, thanks!

I have a new Carbon X1 (2014) and I'm struggling with this keyboard for a couple of reasons.  1. I am a heavy user of Visual Studio and while in Visual Studio, I need the function keys to appear.  I have not found a way to modify the Adaptive Keyboard to display the Function keys while Visual Studio is the active window. 2. I listen to music most of the day (using Xbox Music app).  I need media controls on my keyboard (like my last Lenovo laptop had).  I am surprised that the adaptive keys for media playback are missing (other than volume).  How can I accomplish this? Other than keyboard issues (which are unfortunatly hurting my productivity at this point in time), I love this laptop. Thanks,Pete

Hi all, I've got real issues with my new X1 Carbon keyboard.  I've had the laptop about 10 days / 2 weeks. The enter key doesn't always fire - seems to be sticking a little on the surround.  To the left of the keyboard, the CTRL, shift and Tab keys do exactly the same - don't always fire, and stick a little on the surround. I purchased NBD warranty and had the nicest support guy turn up today and switch out the keyboard - it's VERY different to the first - keys are much harder to press, the left mouse button is harder to press (taking me some getting used to as I'm having to force it quite a bit more to click), and the same keys have the same flippin' problems!!! Anyone else got problems with this?  It's my third Thinkpad, I love them ... but I think I've made a mistake choosing something that's pushing the curve on design and new delivery from Lenovo .... Mark

Answer:X1 Carbon keyboard issues

I don't own an X1C, but I've been comparing it for a while with the T430u at my local Microcenter, and I'd have to agree - typing on the X1C is not as easy as it is on the T430u.  The keys are not as springy, which results in sloppier typing.

Dear Friends,I've just received my X1 Carbon bought directly from Lenovo Brasil (model number 20A80057BR). Took the unit out of the box and imediately started updating the OS and drivers via ThinkVantage System Update and Windows native update tools. After a lot of downloading and a few restarts I finally got the machine ready for a daily usage when I came across this odd situation:despite the fact of the keyboard layout been properly configured, all special characters and symbols are in place except for the forwardslash|question mark kay that seems to not be recognized by Windows. Tried every single keyboard layout for Brazilian Portuguese but still haven't got the key working! In a simple test I've downloaded a LiveCD Image for Fedora, booted up and alas, the key worked. Seems to be a windows configuration issue, but I haven't took any from the factory standard. Here's how it's configured Portuguese (Brasil ABNT) QWERTY. It should be configured any other way (question mark)Also, the Lenovo Solution Center and Companion app says that the Warranty is Unavailable... Even with the machine registered at sight... Can someone please help me with those issues (question mark)Thank you

Dear Lenovo, I have always been a huge fun of the Thinkpad line, pretty much all my laptop are thinkpads. Brought both the 2011 and 2012 versions of X1 and they were great!!! I am such a heavy user I do all my work on those.especially the 2012 X1, best in business class! Now on to the 2013 X1, I mean seriously for a business users the keyboard here is such a deal breaker, it really broke my heart that I have to found a different brand now.... 1. no physical F-keys, I spend majority of my time on excel, this is such a issue because I enjoyed the stifness and the feeling when key bounce back to me, so I would know it registerd.2. double tap shift for Cap lock?! this created so much error space for user to turn accidently turn it on or off.3. the backspace and delete, again its very easy to one rather than the other4. Home, End, Insert keys, why do they have to jump around from generation to generations? everytime a new Thinkpad comes out does serious business users have to get use to your new desgins...5. the red pointstick really needs its own dedicate bottons, it has been there for soo many years and its been wonderful! why do you have to take those away?! Your newly keyboard might work great on ideaPad, geared towards non-professional users...

Answer:X1 Carbon 2014 Keyboard

I can't agree with this sentiment more! This new keyboard with the adaptive function keys are terrible. Why would you introduce these for a business ultrabook? Also, as a loyal Lenovo customer, why would you get rid of the separate trackpoint buttons? Combining them into the touchpad is terrible (and it feels cheap when I click it). Please stop dumbing down what is clearly supposed to be a high-end business ultrabook for consumer use! Can you bring back the old keyboard (e.g., the one that was available on the 1st Gen X1 Carbon)?

However one big issue is that I want to keep the Function row on by default, and only switch to the default one with volume controls if I press the FN button to do so.  Right now no matter even if I chose not to show the default keys, with volume and cloud and all that, it still comes back anytime I switch to a different app.

I am not certain I've identified the part correctly, but this looks like the French Canadian keyboard for the X1 Carbon Gen 3 (MT-M beginning 20BS or 20BT). If so, I believe the part you need is FRU 00HT302 or 00HN947 (the two are equivalent, just made by different manufacturers). You should be able to find a supplier online - I'd start looking on the Lenovo site for options in your country (click).

So I purchased a Lenovo X1 Yoga in Japan and I absolutely hate Japanese keyboard layouts (anyone that has used one after using a US keyboard knows what I mean - a space bar that is smaller than the enter key, poor placement of certain keys, specifically ", ', and @. There is just no logic behind any of it and honestly, there is no need. One can easily type in Japanese, just fine, with a standard US English layout keyboard. Sorry, I guess I didn't need to state that, but perhaps it will help with SEO to ensure someone finds this page when searching for those keywords.  Anyway, I finally found the information I needed to swap this keyboard out (and throw it in the trash), even though Lenovo support in Japan basically told me it's not possible. It does seem like a huge undertaking though (as you basically have to dismantle the entire laptop to get the keyboard out). But it does seem as though the English keyboards are compatible with all X1 Yoga laptops (even my Japanese X1 Yoga). The Lenovo customer service staff told me to get FRU PN: 00JT864 (00JT864 N KBD,US,LB,screw,CHY,Backlit), which is the US English replacement keyboard. It's also specified on the PDF document  on this page (https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/us/en/solutions/PD103738 ) for the 20FR and 20FQ.

I plugged it into an external monitor and that did work, however the keyboard did not work. I could still use it with an external keyboard. I have Ubunutu installed, and there is a file that contains the current state of the lid (open/closed). When I open this file, it always says the lid is closed, no matter wither it is open or closed in reality. Can anyone suggest how I can continue to diagnose this problem?

I bought the 2016 version of Thinkpad X1 Carbon 3 months ago and the machine type is 20FB. I had Windows 10 and Arch Linux installed where I enabled UEFI and use systemd-boot as default bootloader. The keyboard died occationally when I reboot from Arch Linux and doesn't have power adapter connected (i.e. use battery). After it happens, the LED light on FnLk button is still on but the keyboard won't respond me for any key I pressed. (can't turn on the keyboard back-light, can't select OS to boot, can't enter BIOS by F1, etc..) However, if I connect a USB keyboard and use that keyboard to boot into Windows, the keyboard on the laptop will fix itself. I think It's not a hardware problem because the windows 10 system can fix the keyboard at boot stage and in Linux when this bug was hit, though the keyboard doesn't respond, but I can still see the keyboard device mounted on /dev. Just for some reason it doesn't generate interrupts as it should. I called customer support several times but they keeps saying they'll mail me a box and I should send my machine back to them.

I'm hoping someone can provide some feedback on how well the X1 Carbon keyboard and screen have been for using it for software development. I use Visual Studio and Remote Desktop quite a bit and have some concerns regarding the screen and keyboard.   I don't want to get a Hi DPI screen and have to workaround the limitations of the OS.   Are there issues with the RDP client and the Hi DPI screen? How has the keyboard been for someone who uses the function keys 10% of the time?  I usually rely on memory to know where to press the F3, F5 keys.  I'm concerned it will be hard to find the right location without physical keys. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Answer:X1 Carbon, Adaptive Keyboard, and Hi DPI screen

Just got mine shipped. I will install Visual Studio this weekend and let you know. IE 11 scales well (looks great and is super fast) in High DPI screen but Chrome isn't ready yet (works okay with some workarounds). Overall, the experience isn't as good as it would be on a machine with lower 1920x1080 resolution. With the font scaling enabled, things are okay but not as crisp in many programs. Still adjusting to the weird keyboard (home/end keys are at the worst location). Backspace and Delete side by side did bother me today a few times. If the lack of physical F5, F8 and F10 keys bothers me, I might put some kind of stickers over function key area to guide my fingers. I have turned off the dynamic adaptive keys (function key mode is set for all applications). I think it is a very nice device but they did mess up the keyboard experience quite a bit! High DPI support should eventually come to older/other windows applications (apps from windows store don't have an issue with high DPI)

Answer:ThinkPad X1 Carbon 2nd Gen US keyboard type

Good day.
 
You can find keyboard assembly FRU P/Ns in this parts listing:
https://download.lenovo.com/parts/ThinkPad/x1_carbon_gen2_fru_bom_20150616.pdf
The keyboard and bezel look like they are all one assembly.
 
I've ordered parts through the maintenance parts portal. Not sure about international ordering/shipping, though.

We've purchased about 2 dozen 4th gen x1 carbons, machine type 20fb, and have been having some intermittent keyboard issues with multiple laptops.  At least 3 different units have had problems where the keyboard doesn't seem to work at all.  After power on, we press F12, F1, or Enter to try and access different functions, but they have no effect.  Once windows loads, we still can't type anything.   The first time my tech ran into this, he rebooted a few times and was still experiencing the same issue, he set the laptop aside for me to look at.  When I turned it on, they keyboard was functioning normally.  Later, after loading our image on the computer, he was preparing to deploy it to a user when the keyboard stopped working again. I fired up a new laptop this morning, fresh out of the box, and had the same issue, a non-functional keyboard.  In this case at least, the touchpoint/touchpad didn't work either.  I rebooted, tried to get into UEFI config, and after a couple of more reboots I tried pxe booting, but nothing I pressed on the keyboard seemed to help.  I turned the laptop off and put a note on it that it had a bad keyboard, but when my tech came in and turned it on a couple of hours later, they keyboard is working fine.   I've got one in front of me right now that was working this morning, but now the touchpad/point aren't responding.  Keyboard is working though.  L...

Dear all, I unfortunately spilled water on the keyboard of my 2nd gen X1 carbon and several of the keys no longer work. As it is out of warranty, I was hoping to buy the parts from Lenovo and fix it myself. Can somebody point me in the right direction as far as which parts I'll need to replace and what the part numbers are? Thanks!

Hello, I have a X1 Carbon 20A7 laptop since september 14, running on Windows 7.The adaptive keyboard was working fine initially but since 2 months, it shows inconsistent behaviour.Sometimes it works perfectly fine, others it randomly freezes or even disappears.It means that all the sudden I cannot access key functions such as sound & luminosity settings. When this happens, using the standard sound bar in the Windows menu doesn't work either...It usually freezes on the Fn menu, meaning the F tabs are still working, but I cannot switch the keyboard to another mode... I can sometimes fix the issue by rebooting, but it does not work everytime. Is this pure failure & should be sent back to Technical Support or any ideas on how to fix it myself? Thank you,Anne

I'm looking for this keyboard for the X1 Carbon Touch (3443CTO):  I believe it's sold in Taiwan, because it has the Bopomofo typing system, but I would mainly need it for Cangjie. So far, I think I've narrowed it down to two FRUs: 04X0479 and 04Y0819. Is it possible to install a Windows 7 X1 Carbon keyboard on a Windows 8 X1 Carbon Touch, ie. are they cross-compatible? Unfortunately, I don't know which one to purchase or how to order the keyboard. Any help would be appreciated, thanks!

The kb between the X1C and X1CT is the same. You have to go to the Lenovo repair centre in Shanghai, they should be able to get one ordered for you.

I have a strange problem with X1 Carbon Gen 3 keyboard. Right now i on the keyboard insert and delete buttons don't work, home and end work as pgup pgdn, and pgup pgdn swapped back to home end. No any third party utilities working with keyboard installed. I guess this could be related with BIOS update 1.09.1.04  i did few days ago via Lenovo Update - at least before this everything was fine. Does anybode else has this problem?  

Answer:X1 Carbon gen3 keyboard trouble

HiIt's a known issue.1. Workaround: use default keyboard setings for the functional keys in the BIOS setup menu. It'll resolve Ins/Del etc.keys behaviour.2. Wait the next BIOS upgrade

I have been using my new X1 Carbon for couple of months now and really like it.  Recently I suddenly notice that my adaptive keyboard strip is turned off.  No matter what I do, I cannot seem to turn it on.  I have updated BIOS to the latest version but still still the same. Any idea?

Answer:X1 Carbon Adaptive Keyboard Turned Off

Hi, In my case the adaptatve ribbon is on but can't switch between modes, if the laptop gets in suspend mode, when it comes back, the ribbon is off without showing any indication. I have installed, unistalled time and again the latest versions of the hotkey drivers, lenovo system update and all stated in this forum without positive results. The strange fact is that the settings on the Control Panel for the adaptative keyboard are missing and no matter how many times I try to intall, it gives no error when I install but still not showing at the control panel. I have also disabled the antivirus to check but no luck. System updato also don't load and stais with the logon screen. Does enybody have any clues about this?. Thanks in advance.

Aside from reinstalling/factory imaging my 1 week old X1 Carbon (20A8), I figured I would ask here... The tphkload.exe process is at a constant 25% CPU.  Have to keep this laptop plugged in or it dies after about 2-3 hours.When I am booted into the OS desktop, the left "switch" button does not work.  All other times it does... during POST, at the login screen and at the lock screen.  At this point, I have to lock my machine to switch between the Fn menu and Volume menu.Restarting the service has no effect.Uninstalled, rebooted and installed the software about 5 times now and still no joy.I am currently using Hotkey Features Integration v5.33.0000 with the latest BIOS v1.16.  Do I even need this software to use the adaptive keyboard - since during POST I can change the keyboard just fine.   I should also mention that uninstalling the Hotkey software and rebooting, the Adaptive keyboard cannot be changed when in the OS at all (even when locked or logging in)... yet it can during the POST sequence.  Strange... Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Answer:X1 Carbon tphkload.exe and Adaptive keyboard

Found the culprit to be the latest version of the Lenovo PM Driver 1.67.04.05 http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/downloads/detail.page?DocID=DS032258 ... with this driver installed, the Fn strip didn't work and caused the tphkload.exe process to eat CPU. Searched around and installed the previous version 1.67.04.04 instead and the Fn strip started working again without any of the aformentioned issues in my original post.   The driver that worked for me was http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/downloads/detail.page?DocID=DS036054 Hope this helps someone.

There are parts of the screen (near the center, a bit to the left) not reacting to my fingers. For example, on desktop, when I touch a spot for like 5 secs and remove, it'll act like right click and a menu comes up.But near that specific spot, it doesn't react at all or react partially (as if I'm touching that part repeatlessly, it'll act like drag if I move but doesn't wor as right lclick no matter long i leave my finger there) or worst the circle for where my finger is supposed to be is like 2 cm lower. Software problem?Or need repair?   Edit: Nevermind, googled around and someone suggested restarting and it seems to work.Good thing it's not permanent, should have done it earlier.

Okay, this happened again. It was working fine, put it on sleep, went back to it after ~50 minutes, parts of the touch screen wasn't responding.I think last time was after sleep too. I didn't restart it this time, put it back on sleep and woke it up right away and it's fixed.  While I can fix it with a restart or by putting back to sleep, it gets annoying doing it again and again. Is there a way to fix this?

Over the last few months I've had around 7 different occurances of a monitor not displaying anything while powered on and hooked up. This has happened with multiple makes and models of monitors and also laptops, even the connections are different in some cases whether it be VGA, VGA to Mini display, HDMI, or HDMI to Mini display. The only similarity of all the occurances is 2 monitors were used while this happened. Each time I've replaced all the adapters and cords to see if that would fix it. The only thing that seems to fix it, is to switch the monitor out with another one. This happened after the founders update for Windows. All PC's are using Windows 10 64 bit. Any help would be appriciated on this!

Hello, I would like to know if it would be possible to install Yoga 2 Pro keyboard on Yoga 13 machine? It looks to be the same size and layout, so I am wondering if it work if I switched them. Thanks in advance for help.

Answer:Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro Keyboard on Yoga 13

I would liketo know the same thing. the Yoga 13 has a light on the caps lock key so there is potentially back light voltage. The key boards look identical. If they are interchangeable how would the Fn keyboard light switch be programmed? I love my Yoga. I just added an 8 gig Ram stick and a 240 GB hard drive. Keyboard replacement is a piece of cake with an eyephone glass repair tool kit.

I cleaned the keyboard of my X1 carbon today, which inevitably involved pressing  all  keys on the keyboard randomly. Immediately after the cleaning, the speaker can't produce any sound. Headphones work fine. I checked the sound option in control panel, and everything seems to be working normally. The green bar that shows the changing volume of speaker perfectly respond to the system and browser, except no sound is actually produced. It also shows that the sound card is working fine. Does that mean that my speakers are broken? Is there any way to tackle the issue or check the status of the speaker? Thank you.

I have the new x1 carbon touch. Just recently I started having wierd keyboard issues.  This started after I wiped the keyboard down (screen was locked) with a screen wipe.    I can't put my finger on this issue yet--I'm assuming some key may be stuck but I can't figure out which one. When I press the Fn button on the Adaptive keyboard it gives me this message,"This key combination opens the Lenovo Settings program.  You do not have the Lenovo settings program installed on you computer.  To launch the program using this key combination, install the program first." Is this an issue with my Alt key?  I'm having some wierd results with Alt-Tab (it works sometimes).  How should I go about troubleshooting this?
