Hello community, I just received one week ago my X1 carbon 5th gen, P7, 16go, product 20HRCTO1WW, bios N1MET37W1.22. I am a Lenovo fan and I had notably the T400 and the T440s. Since the beginning, I have touchpad issues with my X1 carbon 5th gen: - when scrolling with two fingers, the touchpad accidentally clicks (as If I tapped with one finger in order to click) and I don't recall one session without accidentally clicking on diverse websites and browsers (chrome, opera, firefox). Each session, my touchpad clicks accidentally at least 3-5 times. It is tiring. - I just discovered also that I can't drag something from the corner from the bottom right to the top left corner of my touchpad : indeed, while dragging a folder for example, the touchpad clicks during the course of my finger (even though my finger already press the touchpad in order to drag...). It is after discovering the second problem that I understood that my touchpad has a physical problem. For a very expensive business machine, it is rather unacceptable. I am currently on a trip but as soon as I get back to Belgium, I will ask Lenovo to change my touchpad. I am most angry by the fact that I spent hours to check every possibility to change the options in the synaptics software and the windows precision software in order to stop this accidental clicks (problem one) and up to now I couldn't resolve it. For the moment, I have via synaptics to ignore taps in one edge region of the touchpad in order to scroll without ... Read more

Hi everyone. I'm new in this community. I've been using my brand new Lenovo Flex 3 1470 for a couple of months and everything was running smoothly, i was ver happy with it.I decieded to extend the antivirus coverage for a year (i had a warning of license expiracy for a couple of weeks) and after that, and all of a sudden, my TouchPad stopped working.I'm using Windows 10.PS: I live in Argentina, so no matter how hard I try, Online Support and Phone Support won't give me any possible solution other that flying back to US (where i got my computer) and have it replaced there.

I have a new Flex 4 1470 Flex pad; a number of problems with it, but the biggest is that I cannot disable the touchpad when a mouse is plugged into USB port. Note, I have already tried the following: -the F6 key does not disable touchpad, as manual says it should;-checking "disable when mouse connected" in control panel does nothing;-uninstalling ELAN touchpad driver w/o deleting driver does nothing;-uninstalling ELAN touchpad driver AND deleting driver does nothing; I get message to reboot computer, and I do that, but the driver refuses to be deleted; its always there again;-I've updated ELAN driver so that it is most current available, per Lenovo and Elan sites. Other oddities, like the windows screen saver/timeout feature does not work, either.

Hi there,upgrade to Windows 10 went fine for me & my Y50 except for veriface pro and...the trackpad.Synaptics driver went from 17 to 19 but 2-finger clicks don't bring up the context menu despite the option being ticked in the menus. All other shortcuts work, including 3 or 4-finger clicks (for cortana & other).My registry key for 2 finger click has the right value too (2, not 4).Am I the only one? Driver 17 for windows 8.1 works perfectly fine, but doesn't have the 'new' windows 10 trackpad gestures (cortana & task view).Help please?

Does anyone have a Lenovo - Flex 4 1470? (Win10/64bit) I bought mine in July 2016 and yesterday when I signed on I got a pop-up from Lenovo telling me about a "critical" Lenovo update. I am pretty sure if was referring to BIOS update = v.0vcn.22ww / 120 MB.
I clicked for it to install and then another pop-up saying something about it (possibly) changing binaries, etc. I didn't know what that was all about and so I cancelled the downlod.
Today I phoned Lenovo and spoke to a woman who said "they" didn't recommend downloading/installing updates to BIOS unless I was having problem with this laptop.
As I asked, does anyone else have a Lenovo Flex 4.1470? If so, did you get this critical update notice and if you did, did you install it?
I am 81 years old and know nothing about these things and wonder if I should just forget about downloading the BIOS update? Or whether it MUST be downloaded for this Lenovo to operate properly.
Thanks for any help.

Question: Lenovo Flex 4 1470

I've seen a few times where I have not used my Lenovo for a several minutes it will go into "sleep mode" and I have to hit the power button to open it again. But it is asking me to sign in. I have to turn it off by holding the power button and then turn it back on. And then it will start showing my normal desktop. How can I stop that "sign in" from showing? I never created a password and didn't think I need to do that.
Can anyone help?

In Sign In Options it has "Password.... Your account doesn't have a password. You must add a password before you can use the other sign-in options."
Whatever that means???? I never created a password and don't understand why it is asking me to "Sign In" when I turn in on from the Sleep mode.

I am a writer and I use the keyboard almost exclusively so I need the touchpad almost NEVER.  In the absence of a keystroke chord or a set of strokes, I have to open Settings to get to Touchpad and Disable it.  Having Lenovo Settings out of order for so long is a major bummer because my fat hands continously mark large portions of text and when I hit the wrong [right?] key, ZIP the text goes away. If I'm not paying attention, that portion of my deathless prose is lost.   Hey!

I have to restart the pc (the hard way), therefore losing everything i was doing before this event.I bought this computer 1 year ago but I'm not a big computer user, i use it probably once a week or less, but it still seems like im using an old computer that can fail at any moment.Just to clarify, this computer never had any kind of "accident", never fell or never had any kind of bump.

Hello,One month ago, i bought a lenovo flex 3 1470 (8GB ram, I5-6200), it came with WIN 10 righ out of the box.Since than, im having some trouble with part of the laptop capabilities. First of all - the WIFI:For some reason, once a while, the wifi connection disappeared and than i cant get no signal from any network around me.After that happens, i look into the device manager and i cant see the WIFI adapter no more.Usually restart the laptop solve the problem, but that not a solution.Second, is the pc performance.For a notebook with 8 gb of ram and a brand new i5 processor (6 generation) it runs so slow!More than 2 minutes startup, having a restart or shut down will take much more than than.It's important to say that there's almost nothing intalled on it.The last problem which i saw twice, it that the laptop just turn on by it self without me pressing anything.I've tried running a diagnostic utility from the lenovo support web, didn't find anything special / not functioning.Please help me, this is my work laptop and so far i'm very disappointed with it.

My ~2 week old Lenovo Flex 5's screen started to flicker a few days ago and the issue has become progressively worse since then to a point where most of the screen is covered by black flickering at times. The computer starts fine, but when the computer is moved and especially when the screen is moved up or down the flickering appears. Sometimes the flickering only starts after the computer has been on for a few hours (restarting the PC fixes the issue for a short while). I have tried updating to the latest Intel graphics drivers in the device manager to no avail. I then tried uninstalling the display drivers from the device manager, that only seemed to work for a short while. Is this a faulty screen that should be RMA'd immediately or is it likely a software-related issue?

Hi all, I have owned a Lenovo Flex 4 1470 2-1 for about a year now. At the beginning of this year, I noticed that my keyboard and trackpad had been disabled. I quickly realized that they would be promptly reactivated when I switched into a tablet position. Occasionally, upon restart or resetting the computer, the normal keyboard/trackpad function will return. Every time this happens though it rarely lasts longer than a day. Sometimes, it has returned even when I did nothing to fix it. Sometimes, if I held my laptop at a certain angle, or applied pressure to the base of the laptop, the function would return momentarily. Overall, the tablet/laptop hybrid function has been acting erratic and unnatural. I have already tried restarting my computer, reenabling the trackpad in lenovo's settings application, resetting my PC(both without removing personal files and removing personal files) as well as running countless virus and malware scans. I would return it to costco where I purchased it from, but my laptop is very important to me and Costco typically ships it out to the manufacturer for troubleshooting. Returning to Costco is a last resort that will be time consuming and cumbersome to my work and school.  Please help, I have been using an external keyboard and mouse for much too long.  Again, for reference, I own a Lenovo Flex 4 1470 running Windows 10. Thank You!

Have had a Flex 5 1470 for 2 weeks and today for several hours I ran into this issue where whether it was connected to power or working on battery power I could use the laptop only for around 3-4 minutes before it woud unexpectatly shut off (literally an immediate BLACK screen). I could then power it back on and continue to work for another 3-4 minutes before this would happen again. I downloaded a CPU thermometer and heating was not the issue (was operating well below the operating temperature for the i7).  Any ideas of what was going on? What might have caused this issue and more importantly how to resolve this issue? Your feedback is appreciated!

Hello, I have had my Lenovo Flex 4-1470 laptop for about half a year now, have always taken careful precaution when carrying it, etc. Recently, Upon touching the touchscreen on the right side and bottom of the screen, I am experiencing these "ghost" or "phantom" touches where I touch that part of the screen and it presses on a random part of the screen. The middle and left sides of the screen do not seem to be affected, however, the top of the screen seems to refuse to calibrate to my finger correctly despite calibrating the screen many times. I have updated the touchscreen driver to find that I already have the best and newest version so that cannot be my issue. I have seen that this was a common issue on the Yoga 3-14, and that there was a firmware fix to this... So far the only "fix" I have seen to this issue is disabling the touchscreen altogether, but I bought this laptop specifically for the touchscreen capabilities. I have not physically damaged the laptop, so I am curious on why this is happening.  Is there a firmware fix or something to that extent or will I have to send the laptop to Lenovo and get it repaired? Any Help would be appreciated --Kaitlyn

Answer:Lenovo Flex 4-1470 Auto touch/Ghost touches issue

Hi there, Kaitlyn         -
 
Thank you for writing in to the Lenovo Forum - happy to have you here today.
 
Ghost touches on the screen are most of the time caused by a faulty digitizer (this is the touch screen panel that enables touchscreen functionality) or the Touch panel module (LED panel w/ Touch).
 
Can you try the following? 
 

Under theDevice Manager> Human Interface Devices, can you do a right click and disable on anything that says HID-compliant device (this is the driver that controls the touchscreen). 

 

When finished, reboot the system and observe if you still get the same issue.

 
Update us how it goes.

Hi lenovo friends, I recently bought a Flex 2 14 (not sure if D) (59423165). Firstly, can anyone link me to the correct drivers page for W8.1x64? Thank you! Here are my questions: 1) Is there middle-click functionality for the touchpad? I cannot seem to find a way to middle-click. Does anyone know of third-party programs that will restore this functionality if the Flex 2 14 doesn't already come with it? 2) I am not achieving USB 3 speeds on the USB 3 port. I have a USB 3 flash drive that works perfectly on my desktop (achieving up to 120 MB/s), but I only achieve 30 MB/s on the Flex 2 14's USB 3 port. I am guessing that I do not have the driver installed. Can anyone help me find the correct drive? Thanks in advance, Chris

We just got a Dell XPS-15z, and, we have questions about scrolling on the Cypress touchpad using the Cypress drivers.

When scrolling down (either one finger or 2 fingers), when you hit the bottom of the touchpad, is there any way for the scrolling to continue without your having to lift your finger(s) back to the top of the touchpad? On other Dell laptops, I have Chiral motion, or the scrolling continues so long as your finger is at the bottom of the touchpad? I tried enabling the "Continued Motion" option just in case that was what did it, but that did not seem to work.

Which brings up another question re what "Continued Motion" does.

Also, is there any manual/help document for this driver either on the internet, or in the software itself?

I looked on the forum and on the internet, and couldn't find any answers.

TIA.

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. ?

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
In System Information, then Components, then Problem Devices, the pointing devise shows up, as "Lenovo pointing device", with message "This device is not present, is not working properly, or does not have all its drivers installed."

I have this strangest issue with my Lenovo Flex 3 1470. My built in bluetooth receiver only turns on when i restart windows. If I shut off windows completly and then turn it back on again, bluetooth doesnt work. The icon is dissapeared from the action center and from the device manager. In this state (with laptop on and bluetooth not working), if I restart windows (through start>on/off>restart) the bluetooth device suddenly becomes available upon rebooting. And it works completly stable with all connected devices. I don't want to restart my laptop every time I want to use a bluetooth device.
 
I have tried several things, a clean windows 10 installation, some energy on and off switches in device manager and many different kind of drivers. I even tried replacing the card with a ac7265, but when i did this WiFi worked and bluetooth entirely didnt work nor did it show up in device manager. I waisted money in a effort to fix this strange bluetooth problem,  i guess.
 
Ideas anyone?

Also,
Check the Mixer/Audio settings whether Mic is turned on.
Depending on the used software it might happen, that it disables the microphone while ending the program (Skype, ICQ etc.)

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 just bought a Flex 4-1470 about two weeks ago and used the camera once and it worked well. I tried to use it again today and it was not detected by my system. I looked for it in the device manager under "Imaging Devices" but that section didn't exist. I eventually found it by enabling hidden devices and the icon was greyed out and the device Lenovo EasyCam was reported as disconnected, Code 45. I updated the drivers, reinstalled EasyCam, and tried every solution that I could think of or find to no avail. I eventually uninstalled the device thinking that perhaps the device was improperly installed and it disappeared entirely. Now it doesn't appear in the Device Manager at all, even under hidden devices. The option for camera settings doesn't even appear in Lenovo Settings. The best I can figure is that it is internally disconnected which would be absurd since I've only had this laptop for 2 weeks. Are there any solutions that I could have possibly overlooked, short of disassembling the laptop and reconnecting some possibly disconnected cables?

Recently bought this laptop and having issues waking this system up from Sleep. I updated the BIOS to the latest version and the system shows that all the drivers as up to date. System was bought from Microsoft Store ( if that's an important data point as MS does not install all the bloatware that typically comes with it). Here are my observations; scenarios are all in laptop mode, I haven't ventured much in to tablet mode. If I leave the laptop plugged in with no activity, Screen powers off after the specified time. When I try to wake the system, it does not respond. Power light stays solid and is not blinking as I would expect it to be. Only option to bring up the system is a reboot. I have the Balanced Power Mode active. If I put the system to Sleep from the Start Menu ( Power - Sleep), System goes to sleep, Power light blinks indicating sleep mode and I am able to wake the system up with key press.  I am reasonably tech savvy, but has not been able to find a solution . Love the laptop at the pricepoint in every other aspect and would really like to keep this, if I can solve this issue. Any guidance from gurus out here is appreciated !

Hello. My Flex 3-1470 is having display problems. At first, I thought that the screen was simply not working, but this morning I realized that it actually is, but is very dim. I would think this means the backlight isn't working, but it appears that there actually is some backlight, as the brightness rapidly changes (once or twice every second) but always remains very dim. Brightness ranges between "completely off, I think" and "can just about read the text in the BIOS", with lots of stages in between. It jumps between these stages of different brightness at random. I have discovered that pressing F9 (the screen disable key) will cause the screen to briefly light up correctly (for maybe 100 milliseconds or so) before going back to the dim, constantly changing brightness. Brightness keys do nothing. Is this a problem with the backlight inverter? Is the inverter a separate board on this model, or is it built into the motherboard? Or is the display itself broken? The model ID is 80jk00fecf. Thanks!

Answer:Flex 3-1470 - Screen rapidly changing brigtness but always dark, briefly works when F9 is pressed

Hello DodoDude700Thanks for using the Lenovo forums.Sounds like there will be an issue with your display or the connections inside if it keeps flickering between.
 
Any chance you are able to make a recording of this at all or some pictures?
 
Try a static discharge for this, it may help to resolve the issue or at least get rid of any built up static on the motherboard.(If the battery is internal, please just skip the remove/replace battery steps.)1. Turn the unit off2. Remove the battery and the Mains adapter3. Press and hold the front power button for 30 seconds4. Replace the battery and the Mains adapter5. Turn the unit on as normal
Hope this helps, let us know how you get on.==================================================================================Did someone help you today? Thank them with a Kudo! If you find a post helpful and it answers your question, please mark it as an "Accepted Solution"!

I have a Client today who's been having some real issues with their customization features. Particularly, scrolling on the touchpad not working supposedly regardless of the settings changed/altered to accommodate this feature. Otherwise the touchpad functions just fine, but not to the efficiency my client in question desires. It would appear that not only does there appear to be a sectioned off part on the touchpad to enable this, but supposedly other individuals whom possess the same make and model, with the same windows 10 pro version, are able to enable this feature with no issues whatsoever. The mouse cursor does appear to be still itself whenever two fingers are placed onto the pad, but otherwise nothing.
Any Advice to what the issue might be?

Hi, hope there's someone who can help me with this.
I'm using an acer aspire laptop, and my touchpad stopped working suddenly for a while - and after some time - until now - I can't scroll using two fingers (I have synaptics installed and it was working fine). Also the UP key in the keyboard isn't working. When I restart the system, tapping on the touchpad doesn't make a click unless I press ENTER first. This happened suddenly out of nowhere. Any help will be much appreciated.

Answer:Yoga 720 screen goes black when I scroll down with two fingers on the touchpad

Thanks so much in advance for any advice. I've tried reviewing the settings for the touchpad, but couldn't find anything that would link it to turning off the screen.

Hello all, I've recently bought an Ideapad U430 Touch, and I love it.  I have one complaint: when I use two-finger scrolling, if I move my fingers to the top or bottom edge of the touchpad, the scrolling will continue automatically (even if my fingers are not moving).  This is not what I want. I have the most recent Synaptics drivers obtained from Lenovo's website.  I have looked under Synaptics settings for a way to disable this 'feature', but have come up empty (this is different than edge motion, which I have disabled).  Google hasn't been of much help, either.   Any ideas?  Also, side question: is it possible to customize the touchpad edge-swipe gestures?  I don't understand why they can't be changed from Synaptics settings. Thanks!

Answer:U430 Touch touchpad continues scrolling when fingers reach edge of pad

Anybody?

I bought a new adpater to Amazon but unfortuntely, nothing happened with the new one, no charge led, no start, nothing... I tried to remove the battery, push on power button during 30 seconds, replug the battery and start but the same nothing happened. No warrantly...Do you have an idea? Please help me, i bought this laptop 800 euros two years ago.... Thanks. Eric

Hi,I enabled the three fingers gesture in my Synaptics Control Panel. However, instead of switching tasks by swiping left or right, it goes back to my previous page in my Chrome when I swipe left and goes forward when I swipe right. Is there anyway to fix this? I really love the 3 fingers gestures.  Thanks in advance.
