Lenovo Ideapad Flex 15 Touchpad jumping about all over.

Question: Lenovo Ideapad Flex 15 Touchpad jumping about all over.

This morning my laptop touchpad was really slow to respond and then suddenly went away. I restarted and when it came back it was jumping all over the screen. I have now disabled it.Is there a solution tot his, or is it hardware. I have installed the latest touchpad drivers and it has made no difference. Advice? Any solutions?

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

I recently updated to the latest November update and afterwards installed Office 2016. Ever since the touchpad has been behaving funny. It clicks on icons u don't wanna open, launch program unexpectedly, if u wanna click on something it jumps and dances here and there. Its really infuriating particularly if u need to get things done urgently. I uninstalled the ALPS Touchpad and seemed to work for about 2 days and trouble started again. It has even become worse after the PC automatically downloaded and installed the ALPS Touchpad again. Please I need your help thank you.

I've had my y510p for about 3 months now (after it was replace because the first one I recieved went all crashy and insane). I "upgraded" windows 8 to windows 8.1 in a funny moment about a week after I got it - which over all seems to have gone totally fine. The elan touchpad has always been a little anoyingly "wooly" but basically functioned well. But about 3 weeks ago it started making little hops as I tapped meaning I clicked on the wrong thing and then it started sometimes wandering and jittering while my fingers were resting on it (especially anoying when using 2 finger scrolling). then it started going into a little dancing about mode where occassionally it starts hopping about and clicking on things. which is a total pain. It doesnt do it all the time but it seems to get more frequent. it also seems to increase with sonsistent use (like if im clicking arround on pinterst or something then it seems to get worse and worse - grounding issue?) Its anoying enough now that I dont trust it and as often as possible turn it off and use an external mouse - but obviously that not good enough. I have downloaded and installed the more recent drivers for windows 8.1 64bit from the lenovo website here: http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/detail.page?DocID=DS037924 and its hard to say really but if anything that has made it marginally worse... Any help gratefully recieved - I really hope its a fixable software problem as I'm in the middle of a big p...

Answer:Ideapad y510p elan touchpad erratic jumping and clicking

Unfortunately the drivers on the Lenovo website are quite old.  I got fed up with how the track pad works in the Y510P so I started experimenting with a variety of drivers.  The ELAN drivers I am using now are intended for Toshiba laptops but they work fine on the Y510P.  You can read more info starting here. http://forum.notebookreview.com/ideapad-essential/720343-ideapad-y510p-359.html#post9622928 I find that the track pad is a lot better with these drivers.  There are more adjustments and more features so you can get it working like how a track pad is supposed to work.   Lenovo has ignored this problem for months.  You will need to fix this problem yourself. I plan to write a clear guide this weekend with lots of pictures to show you exactly what needs to be done to install these drivers into a Lenovo Y510P.

Hi all, I just received my IdeaPad U300s Laptop yesterday. A really nice device I have to say, BUT: As for numerous other Ultrabooks (I had a Zenbook first which I returned due to a catastrophic keyboard and touchpad) the U300s touchpad also seems a bit flawed to me. When I have one finger on the touchpad to move the arrow and then (while leaving my finger on the pad) perform a click (not just touch) with my other finger on the left button area, the mouse arrow jumps up 20 - 30 pixel during the click. Although this only happens in 20% of the cases it's needless to say that this is EXTREMELY annoying! Does anyone have the same problem or maybe a quick fix for this? Best regards,SirDaedalus

Without any particular event (Windows 10, Ideapad Flex 14), these things happend
 
touchpad cursor control stopped working, but cursor works fine with USB mouse
Synaptics control 'Accessories' work fine : Presssure Graph and Mood Pad
graphical volume control appeared in upper right
volume is constantly driven to zero ... cannot get sound without constantly clicking on volume level, or hitting Volume up key (F3)
Volume down (F2) and Sound toggle (F1) now do nothing
 
I can hold down Volume up (F3) and get volume to work, but it must be held down continuously to hear anything played on the speakers.  
 
it looks like some event from either Volume down or Sound toggle is running continuously, and those events prevent the touchpad cursor control from working.  
 
The laptop is barely functional in this condition .. must have USB mouse connected, and playback of any sound 
 
I have sprayed clean dry air around the keys .. it seems unlikely that any debris is stuck in the key, but it almost seems like one of the two keys (volume down or less likely sound toggle) is being continuously pressed.
 
I would be quite happy to have the key disabled through software .. I havae never used it.
 
Any help would be so generous from the community, and so gratefully appreciated!

Answer:Ideapad Flex 14 - touchpad disabled, volume down always on

I experience the exact same problem with this laptop (recently installed Windows 10, but the problem was also apparent with Windows 8). Only, the volume is constantly driven to 100 instead of zero. Reinstalling drivers or completely reinstalling windows does not solve the problem.

The issue has already solved, just writing for thos who might have the same issue. One day when I turned the notebook on, the keyboard and touchpad did not work. Restarting ddi not help.The only thing I put my attention that time was the battery is almost discharged, so I turned the notebook off, closed the lid, and plugged it in. The next day I turned it on, and everything was working.  Another idea on why it happened: when the notebook lid opens and closes, it might switch to tablet mode, so that the keyboad and touchpad are off.

Try re-installing the touchpad driver for your laptop model from the support section on Lenovo's website.If that makes no difference, plug in a USB mouse & use that instead.

Answer:Lenovo laptop touchpad jumping cursor problem

I haven't seen a solution, if it gets too bothersome you may want to try an external usb keyboard and that should work fine.The problem is with different brands too so I'm wondering if it's not a motherboard flaw of some sort. If I type real slow on a problem laptop and make sure my fingers don't touch the laptop mousepad, the cursor will not jump....it's like an intermittent problem.Another thing you might try is to disable the mousepad and use a usb or wireless mouse:http://www.technade.com/2007/05/how...That may work for you....good luckSome HELP in posting on Computing.net plus free progs and instructions Cheers

In just 2 days of laptop usage, the mouse pad has come out. The amazing service center in India (ticket no. HT014716010) said that the glue that held mousepad to the laptop "WASN'T STICKY ENOUGH" and added that they do not support this laptop as its "international warranty" is limited to US and China and I need to take it to your US service center to fix it. $619 laptop, 2 days, and it is nothing more than a junk box to me. As a birthday present I have gifted my father nothing more than added tension and thanks to you guys for making that happen. Attaching a pic for your reference. ?

My Lenovo Ideapad Flex laptop does not switch on when I press the power button.  It was working till this morning, when I switched it off (via an operating system shut down in Windows 8.1). When I tried to turn it on an hour later, I found that pushing the power button has no effect at all.  I tried pushing the novo button.  In this case the laptop does turn on and shows the "lenovo" welcome screen for a few seconds.  However, it promptly switches off again.  The symptoms do not depend on the laptop being connceted to power: they are exactly the same in the two cases. I have a Lenovo warranty, and I tried calling them, but due to a severe weather condition at their service station, they said they are unable to respond promptly.  In the meantime, is there anything I ccan do on my end to fix this?

There's a chance the power button itself is broken and is turning the machine off as soon as you turn it on with the other button.

First of all, in spite of the timing of this post (posting the same day that the update is becoming available for most people), this isn't Windows 10.1/115 (I forget the update's nickname) related (this computer hasn't updated yet). A few days ago, the trackpad stopped working. (It worked fine for about 3 months with Windows 10, and roughly a year with Windows 8.1)


I tried the device manager "uninstall device" thing, which often works. In this case, however, detect hardware did not detect the trackpad after uninstalling.
I've tried all drivers I can find, including the latest driver per Lenovo's website (plus the one Windows update installs, ironically newer than Lenovo's website
I've tried uninstalling the program, but it doesn't lead to any success after reinstalling later
The device does list itself in the trackpad/mouse properties panel in the systray, I don't know if that means it's being detected somewhere, or if it's because the driver is installed. It's an Alps pointing device, 8.201.1611.249

The touchscreen on my ideapad flex 14 laptop is not working. I've tried uninstalling the driver in device manager and then restarting my computer. I've also checked that all drivers are up to date. I'm on wondows 10 and I think it has worked since the upgrade (though I'm not 100% sure). Any ideas?

Answer:Lenovo Ideapad flex 14 touchscreen not working

Welcome to the Forums Bevvy! 
 
Press Windows+X.
- Select Device Manager.
- Find the Touchscreen driver under Mice and Other Pointing Devices>USB Touchscreen Controller(A111).  You're going to uninstall this and check the box that says "Delete the driver software for this device".  Don't worry, it won't blow up your computer.
- Restart your computer.
- Re-open the Device Manager, and confirm that the Touchscreen is now listed under Human Interface Devices.
 
Let us know how you get on.

Hi, since a few weeks i had an issue with my Flex 140D Notebook - the touchscreen doesn't work. What i've done was to uninstall the 3 USB-Devices below the HID-Section and the Touchscreen itself and rebooted the System. I did also an "Reset", see the link below, for the Mainboard but it doesn't fix the problem. Can someone give me a hint ?

Hello, I have had the laptop for nearly a year, still under warranty and, today, some keys stopped working on the keyboard, more concretly: 5 6 F1 F2 ? '  and CTRL (LEFT) keys (written with the touchscreen). The last time it worked I was using it in class taking some notes and those aforementioned keys were working. Once I finished, packed the laptop into the cover, and into the bag. ten minutes later I took it out in the library and they did not work.No water spilling had occurred (it was dry and the bag was dry too). And also there were no hits to the terminal. They just seemed to stop working, the pressure input feels pretty the same, so they are not stuck by any material underneath. I tried reinstalling the drives (through the hardware management), checked all options in keyboard assesment....tried with safe mode, still do not work.  Could it be some defect and should call for a replacement? Thanks beforehand.

Dear Experts, I was noticing this problem just after my warranty is expired.  My Lenovo Ideapad flex 15 shuts down exactly in every 30 minutes. Here are some clues.Shutdown even when it is in bios, it is not a driver problem. Reset the bios to default but no outcome.Did comprehensive hardware test using Lenovo Solution Center but not showing any issue.All hardware temperature is normal. There was some dust in CPU fan, causing problem to run it smoothly. Removed the dust, now it is running smoothly. But still, I am having this problem.Removed the BIOS battery for the whole night, no outcome.If I put the laptop in sleep(before 30 min) and wake up immediately, I don't see this problem. I suspect this is some hardware or bios firmware issue (i.e probably some internal timer is shutting down laptop and putting the laptop into sleep may reinitialize the timer). Any idea how to resolve this problem? As another try, I want to flash the bios firmware, but I can't find any link in lenovo support center to get bios firmware for Lenovo Ideapad Flex 15.  Any help is highly appreciated. My BIOS version: 8ACN34WW Thanks/Babu

Laptop is running on Windows 10. Yesterday I updated my AMD graphics driver using the update tool from AMD. After all the necessary files were downloaded and installed, I was prompted to restart and I did. Upon restart, the laptop would not boot past the Lenovo screen. The white circles that rotate always freeze and it just stays on the Lenovo screen upon every attempt to boot. I can't enter safe mode or the bios options, what can I do to fix this?  P.S. A few months ago I began having an issue with the sleep mode. When trying to enter sleep mode, the laptop would just shut down unexpectedly and almost instantly. I'm not sure what caused this issue, but I've just been avoiding it by shutting down instead of sleeping. Not sure if this has anything to do with it, or if the restart was interrupted by an unexpected shutdown.

Hello. I have a friend who has upgraded her Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 15 laptop from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10. We're not sure if the upgrade broke the touch screen or whether it wasn't working beforehand. We've tried various things to get it to work, including the item here...https://support.lenovo.com/gb/en/documents/ht104469... and we've tried disabling the option to 'allow the computer to turn off this device to save power' in the HID USB devices. Actually, there is a device "HID compliant touch screen" that appears to be working correctly, and we get the keyboard symbol in the system tray, so the computer seems to be seeing the touch screen okay - it just doesn't work at all. My friend phoned Lenovo, who took the machine details and advised her two things...1. Gave her a link to try for drivers from the Lenovo website. The link appeared to be for AMD drivers and was for the Flex 15D computer - not very impressive.2. Told her if this didn't work (and I'm fairly sure it wouldn't) to revert back to Windows 8.1 - also not very impressive. What to do now I wonder? Thanks for reading this, and for any help you might be able to give.

Hello all.I own a lenovo IdeaPad Flex 15 laptop that runs Windows 8.1 and runs Intel I7. I think some of the specs on it are 8gb ram, 500gb hard drive, and that's about all I can remember of that top of my head. Anyway, I've had some recurring error problems. During the middle of my work, my laptop will flash a blue screen and often restart itself several times. It will prompt the blue screen repair mode and will often freeze up in that mode and restart itself several times. It's shown me several error messages including:APC_Index_MismatchAndSystem_Service_Exception mfehidk.sysAndKernel_Security_Check_Failure This has happened in the past.

In Windows 8.1's event viewer there are two errors that state that power failed unexpectedly.This has occured with the power adapter connected, and without. It also occured for Ubuntu 14.04. Problem 2: The computer (when powered down) only occasionally responds to the power button, and fails to boot when it does. I have found a temporary workaround - resetting the BIOS - however that only works one time per reset.

Hi there,About 2 weeks ago I purchased this Lenovo in Romania which came with preinstaled windows 8(.1) license.

So I had it returned but the online site tolled me that I scratched the lcd cover(which I didnt) and asked me for 100euros and another 50 euros to restore to factory settings. Now, I asked them to return the laptop to restore the harddrive to original Lenovo settings but I cant find any source to do that on my own.

Hi, I hope you're doing well. I recently upgraded my Lenovo Flex 2 (15 inch) notebook from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10. After upgrading, the right click button on my touchpad stopped working. Suspecting a driver issue, I uninstalled the driver to allow the default Windows driver to take over. The right-click button started to work again, so it's not a hardware problem. However, the touchpad, in general, became erratic and difficult to use. I then downloaded the latest Lenovo Flex 2 touchpad driver for Windows 10. However, the touchpad returned to the way it was after the upgrade and the right-click button does not work. Please help me with this. I need my laptop to function properly during my travels. Kind regards, Ash

Since nobody in the Lenovo community answered this, and Customer Support refuses to provide support for their own drivers (without charging you $70 for Premium Support), I will post the solution that I found on my own, so that other innocent customers can be helped. Uninstall the touchpad driver from Programs & Features, then download Windows 8.1 version of the touchpad driver (Bay) from the Lenovo Flex 2 drivers page. Install it and it will work perfectly on Windows 10 (unlike the Windows 10 driver). Enjoy. Ash

Answer:Lenovo Ideapad Flex 14D - Device manager says it has two graphic cards?

thats because your cpu has built in GPU as well, this is called APU when amd has gpu built inside their cpu chip so then it detects 2 gpu 1 from cpu and 2nd one thats installed on motherboard it's same for intel laptops they usually have Intel HD graphics card built inside cpu chip while 2nd gpu is installed onto motherboard. every AMD Ax series of cpu has a GPU in them if i now understood it right.

As i recall it wanted to update my bios from 1.04 to 2.0 I clicked yes, and the bios update ran and initiated a restart of the computer. Unfortuatnply now my computer does not start up and i am greeted to LEDS being on but a black screen without a lenovo logo.  I then tried to go on the Lenovo website and for the bios version that i just installed, there is no 2.0 version listed, specifically 2SCN20WW. There are no bios updates period. Was this update pulled, and if so what can I do to recover it so it boots again.  http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/products/Laptops-and-netbooks/Flex-Series/flex-4-1480?tabName=Downlo...  thanks

Hi all, I am running a Lenovo Flex 10 Ideapad, primarily for Windows-based web development purposes. I've had no major issues and I love how small and portable the machine is. However, I recently updated the BIOS from the factory-shipped default to 93CN19WW V5.2 & V3 .7 (release date 4/22/2015). Since then I've had issues with sleep/hibernate modes. Sleep and hibernate modes will no longer function when closing the laptop lid and I'd therefore like to revert back to the previous stock/shipped BIOS. However, I can't find any links to the previous BIOS or any clue as to where I can source a copy. Can someone point me in the right direction? Can Lenovo supply me with the previous BIOS? Thanks in advance for any advice or assistance.  J

I saw the latest  Win8.1 x64 bios is available. Here's a quick link to it. Although, you may just want to upgrade your machine to the new Windows 10. I like it so far.

HiThe Lenovo support centre does not show correct warranty details for my Ideapad Flex 14 laptop. The laptop is barely one month old and it is covered under warranty for next 11 months.

Hi csjoshi,thanks for posting and welcome to the community. I was wondering, apart from going through the Lenovo Solution center, could you check your status from the warranty lookup. Try the link below to confirm if your warrant is displaying the correct information.http://support.lenovo.com/en_MY/product-service/warranty-status/default.page?Do let me know.Regards

Good morning. I would like to downgrade to windows 7 from 8.1. Does anyone know what the driver availability is and any other suggestions? Also. I am very new to UEFI and such, so any help would be greatly appreciated!

I just received the laptop today and tried to download a small file and I had to wait over an hour. On my Toshiba I waited 10 seconds. I have stuff I need to download and I pretty much cannot do any of my work on my new laptop. How can I fix this?
