Lenovo ThinkPad L R/SL :: Left Mouse Button Stay Held When Dragging On L530
Jun 24, 2014
on an L530, when i click and hold the left mouse button on the trackpoint while performing a "sweep" operation -- ie dragging out a rectangular area on the display -- the button doesn't stay held; it prematurely unclicks / releases before i lift my finger off the button.
i had this problem with the original keyboard. i called support, they quickly shipped a replacement keyboard, and almost as quickly the problem reoccurred.
this is annoying, because i frequently perform mouse sweeps (almost exclusively in conjunction with "snipping tool" on win7). invariably, i need to retry the sweep 2,3,4,5,6.... times before i'm successful at getting what i want. and i'm pressing down on the button with significantly more force than should be required.
this isn't a problem that develops over time; it's there from the get-go.
i've phoned in to support again, and they're shipping me a 3rd keyboard. sounds like a design flaw, since the same problem's shown up on 2 keyboards. (progress has been made, however; on the original keyboard, F10 wasn't working reliably either; on the now-in-use 2nd keyboard, F10 works fine.) hope i'm wrong about the chronic failure, and 3rd time's a charm...
I've run my Lenovo laptops (on a T510 now) for years using the middle button (the "scroll" button) as a plain old middle mouse button. The ultranav tool has always had an option to make it act like a MMB, with no fancy scroll function, etc.
I just bought a new W540, and found, much to my distress, that such an option doesn't seem to exist on the W540! This is very important to me as I run Cygwin X server and rely on the middle mouse button to to paste in Xterms and other X apps. This is a real showstopper for me!
I noticed a "three finger tap" function that's supposed to act as a MMB. But it doesn't seem to work in Cygwin X. Plus, it's not the best solution.
Is there any way to do this with the new Ultranav drivers?
The left mouse button on my m1530 has taken a battering. It has gone all lop-sided, crunches every time I press it, and now doesn't work at all unless I press down on it very very hard with two fingers.
I work fast, so this is an incredibly frustrating thing to happen, as everything now takes ten times longer to do.
I have a collapsed left mouse button on my m1530 touchpad. The button still works but does not return to its original position so it is most likely the return spring (or whatever it is) that is broken.
The laptop is out of warranty so I'm looking for a way to fix this myself. I've tried searching for this part but with no success,
and I can't find any pictures of this part to tell whether I can use some other substitute.
I have a problem with my L530 and the WiFi Connection. When I start the computer and see the Login-Screen of Windows 8.1 the networkicon left to the betteryicon have a red cross. After I log into Windows 8.1, I have no wireless connection availible. In the devicemanager is no wirelesscard listet, also there are no other problems with other devices.
After restarting, power off/on, removing the battery and so on about 1.000.000 times the wireless card is pretty working to the next shut down. So my workaround was to use the standby mode instead shut down after I've finished working.
UNTIL yesterday! Now I can't enable the wireless card... This card is installled: ThinkPad Wireless LAN (11bgn, bg)
I've tried the following things: - UEFI is on version 2.56 - loading UEFI defaults, save and reboot - remove the battery and power plug -> push the power button for 10 sec - disable hybrid shut down in windows - booting with ubuntu 13.04 -> no wireless hardware available... Nothings works...
I have L530 with Centrino Advanced-N 6205 wireless built-in. The computer does not see any of the n networks I have setup (either 2.4GHz or 5GHz). When I get advanced properties on the centrino adapter, the "Wireless mode" shows only a/b/g options and not n.
Is the 6205 adapter compatible with 802.11n? If yes, how can I enable it? I have the latest drivers installed thru Lenovo Thinkvantage Tools app.
As a confirmed trackpoint user, having the mouse built into the trackpad of the T431s is causing me all sort of grief, including sore wrists - but there are two problems I can't seem to diagnose.
1) When clicking the pad for left mouse click, it often does not work until I click it a few times. I notice this more when I disable the trackpad for cursor movement (which I had to do because the cursor moves when I try to click) - but its there even when that is enabled. It comes and goes. I guess there could be some foot trapped in there, but I've only had it a week and been pretty careful. I'd rather not learn to remove the keyboard on day 6.
2) The right click gets into a condition where, when browsing,a click brings up a new tab of the link I clicked on, rather than showing me the options (open in new tab, incognito window, save link, etc). If I connect a real mouse, it is normal.
I am encountering serious problems with my Thinkpad Edge E520.
The left-mouse-click function of my UltraNav and Touchpad are not working anymore. The buttons are clicking normally, but do not have any functionality.
I am using a dual boot system with Win7 Home Premium SP1 and Ubuntu 12.04.1 LTS... I did several checks:
Touchpad navigation and right-click button working properly Touchpad left-click-button clicking properly, but no functionality Touchpad click functionality not working
UltraNav Trackpoint and rickt-click-button working properly UltraNav left-click-button clicking properly, but no functionality Switching to Left-handed setup results in a properly working right-click-button with left-click function for Touchpad and UltraNav
External USB mouse working properly with Win7 External USB mouse not working properly with Ubuntu (no left-click functionality)
Fresh format and reinstall of dual boot system - problems remaining ... Since the behavious is the same with Win7 and Ubuntu and also remains after a fresh installation of both OS, I assume it is a hardware defect!?
where is the printscreen button on the X1 carbon ? Where is the insert botton ?
The keyboard of the X1 Carbon is non standard compliant. The person who took keyboard classes and efficient at typing becomes inhibited with these changes The End botton is close to the A key which is usually the spot for the Caps Lock
I'm tried hard-booting the device, but no dice. When I push the power button, I show activity in the status lights and can feel heat coming out of the heatsink. I think I see the 'ThinkPad' screen displaying very faintly at that time, but it seems not to proceed through the regular boot process. I'm definitely not able to get to a BIOS post.
I was looking for the software to disable the touchpad. I saw a video that had the option but it was windows 8 and I have been unable to find the same options for 7. The thinkpad tab in the screen shot is not showing up in 7.
I got an X230 a few months ago and the power key has stopped working. It doesn't spring back like the other keys and pressing it has no affect. My laptop is under warenty so I plan on contacting the store I bought it in about a repair but I'm wondering is there any way for me to use the laptop in the meantime? Any way to turn the laptop on without using the power key?
the microphone mute button doesn't work, nor does it light up at all... the speaker mute button works. Also, the Lenovo button next to it USED to work and now doesn't for some unknown reason. I have a new x1 carbon with windows 8.1 and really need some specific direction on how to troubleshoot this!
I got a new Twist a couple of days ago. When in tablet mode, the mouse pointer will come up and start moving around the screen. I think it may be one of two things. 1. The ghost of my former laptop is haunting the Twist or 2. The keyboard/mouse is not disabled in tablet mode and the back of my screen is causing the movement when I am using it in tablet mode. Is there a setting to disable the keyboard/mouse in tablet mode or am I the only one having this problem.
Is there anyway to disable the center scroll button on the x-240 trackpad. I keep hitting it when I try to use the left mouse button. I never use the scroll button and want to get rid of it. The new trackpad's design is horrible with the undefined buttons.
Just got a Thinkpad SL510 2847 D2U, Windows 7 Prof.(64 bit).
Often when I touch the Touchpad I see the arrow on screen change to a "button" being displayed. And the button is not like using the arrow. Very difficult to work with it. So I keep moving around Touchpad to get rid of the "button" and return to arrow.
How to rid of this "button" action? Or what am I doing to cause it? I believe I have changed the sensitivity of the touchpad. I'll check again.
I bought a "Thinkpad Yoga 20CD-0038GE" in December and everything worked perfectly until last week. Suddenly after boot up the mouse cursor disappeared when Windows showed up (no external mouse, I'm using trackpad/trackpoint). The mouse was completely gone, clicking also didn't work (the mouse cursor was not invisible or similar). Touching the display still works.
I then installed all available Windows and Lenovo updates (Solution Center), but the bug was still there. Strangely enough what seems to bring the mouse back sometimes (!) is to switch to flight mode and then restart the system. But when turning flight mode off and restarting the system, the mouse ist gone again...
I searched the forums but could only find tips with un- and reinstalling all kind of drivers, unfortunately no method worked for me. Today I made tabula rasa and restored Windows completely from scratch with the built-in recovery function. Gladly the mouse was back again and everything was fine at first sight. But as soon as I installed the obvious Windows Updates (dozens to be critical listed as it's normal for a recovered Windows installation) the bug was there again and my mouse was gone...
Since updating to ThinkPad Bluetooth software 184.108.40.20600 on July 28, 2012, my ThinkPad Bluetooth mouse will stop working after using it for several hours. Disabling power management in Bluetooth does not seem to solve the problem. Please provide a download link to the prior version of ThinkPad Bluetooth software until this issue is resolved.
sometime in sleep mode my Yoga fall into irresponsive mode without any possibility to do anything. The power button is simply not working - pushing it for more than 30 second not change anything... Yoga red light is slowly blinking, the fn key is lighting, the fan is working, processor is heating and this follows to full drain battery.
Is any possibility to reset or reboot this "thermal brick" Yoga mode? Some computers and tablet have the hard reset button to work with such a situation - have Thinkpad Yoga similar solution (i.e. button combination invoking reset)?
We bought around 40 of these X220 I5 before xmas and now more than 20 of them have failed. The company we bought them from tried everything but they ended up switching the mainboard on the first two that failed.
We were told it was a batch issue with the serial number R9-HNXXX and now all of those are changed into T420. But today we had the same problem with serial number R9-HXXXX that was bought two weeks earlier and with different config - I7 and SSD.
Yesterday while I was working on a spreadsheet, the left button of my trackpad on my Dell XPS 15z just mysteriously stopped working. I assumed that maybe my system was slowing down, as I tend to multitask and often will have a LOT going on at once. So I restarted, since it had been about a three days since my system was restarted. Anyway, it did no good. Still, the left button wasn't working.
So, I then pressed it SUPER hard and it started working. Today, I noticed that it was messing up again. However now, depressing the key good and hard doesn't seem to magically fix the situation. Moreover, it doesn't work at all now instead of intermittent workability.
There wasn't any sort of update or anything... I'm really confused. Right button has no issues, but clearly I need both. Not sure what I should do.
I tried to clean the underneath of the touchpad mouse buttons of this Dell Vostro 2520 Notebook. since then both the buttons are not working. I am not being able to use the left right buttons and now using an external mouse.
What do I need to replace? How to purchase and from where. dell techincl support phone waiting time is currently 2-3 hours. I just tried.
I have a brand new ProBook 430 G2 (SKU # G6W35EA#ABB) with Windows 8.1, fully updated. I find that every 10-15 minutes, the left button on the trackpad becomes unresponsive. The trackpad still moves the mouse pointer and the right button continues to work, but the left button does not react. This lasts for several minutes, perhaps 3-4. Then the left button resumes working as if nothing had happened. Since the button resumes working, I suspect it is more likely to be a software issue with the driver or Windows 8.1.
I have Synaptics TouchPad driver version 220.127.116.11, the current version of the driver. I have Windows 8.1 version 6.3.9600. I have Bios version HP M74 version 1.03 (07/07/2014)
