Lenovo X / Helix Tablet :: X230T / Slow Scroll After Swipe On Windows 8
Nov 15, 2012
I have an X230T running Windows 8 and working quite well with it.
I face a Problem with using Windows 8, the scroll speed after swiping (f. e. in Internet Explorer or start menu) is pretty slow. For example: you have loaded a web page in IE 10 which has lots of text and you scroll down using a swipe - the page starts to scroll but soon the movement is de-accelerated and the scroll movement stops very soon with little gain of area.
Yesterday, I saw on the Lenovo System Update app, that I had couple critical and optional updates. These were the updates:
WER Patch Lenovo Comm Utility Lenovo Power Management Driver ThinkPad Power Manager Intel WLAN Driver BIOS 188.8.131.52
There were couple updates on the Windows Side. I ran all of them in one session so I can't really say if windows messed up something or the System Update is responsible but since yesterday I can no longer shutdown my x230t i7 Win 7 Pro. I closes the desktop and then it gets to the screen where you'll see a spinning wheel and the words "Shutting Down":
But it will hang there forever and never actually shuts down. I have to press and hold down power button to shutdown.
I recently did a clean install of Windows 8.1 on my X230T, and also installed Office 2013.
I need to use the digitizer with OneNote 2013 heavily for taking lecture notes.
As I did when I was using Windows7, I set the side button on the digitizer to "eraser" and expect that it works properly.
Unfortunately, when I tried to press the button to switch the tip from the pen mode to the eraser mode, the behavior
of the digitizer becomes pretty strange.
(1) If I remain the tip close to the screen, it would not switch to the eraser mode
(2) if I move the tip a little higher and let the cursor disappear, then hold the button and move the tip back to the screen, I SOMETIMES get the eraser mode; but it doesn't switch back to the pen mode even if I release the button.
I need to again move the tip far away from the screen and release the button to get the pen mode back.
I downloaded the up-to-date driver from Wacom but it doesn't work.
Also, I cannot find the driver for this functionality for Windows 8.1 on Lenovo website;the latest version of multitouch driver only supports Windows 7 and older versions of windows.
About 6 months ago I bought a ThinkPad 230t and the battery usually lasts 5-6 hours. Since a few days ago whenever it is on the battery the CPU starts to overheat with a noticeable fan noise and the battery does not last longer than 2.5 hours. There is a significant high CPU usage when the battery is on (even if the adaptor is connected). The battery does not heat itself at all. Only when I remove the battery the overheating stops. I could not find any program in the task manager which is causing this and I updated all the drivers and BIOS but no change so far on this issue.
I have this laptop and just bought 3 dell u2414h monitors. They are supposed to support dp 1.2 daisy chaining ,but I have not been able to get it to work. Dell support was atrocious. The only reason I can think of that this isn't working is because my laptop doesn't support it.
The brand new multitouch worked for 2 days while I was setting up the laptop and my files. I played with it for about an hour tonight. The X230T was running on battery, I plugged in the power cord, and the screen became totally unresponsive. As insensitive as a school bully in a bridal shower.
Per instructions at [URL] .... -- I'm running Windows 7, 64bit -- I uninstalled and reinstalled the ISD multitouch driver, 7wge69ww.exe. No go.
The only input device that now works is the mouse -- not the pen, not a finger.
Considering that my other X230 was sent to the shop last week (with a second dead motherboard in less than a year), I'm starting to wonder about Lenovo.
I have a problem with the on screen touch keyboard of the X230T. I cannot move it around anymore using the finger or stylus. Moving it with the touchpad is still possible. Also the "dock"-option is deactivated. Which driver I would have to reinstall for the on screen keyboard? Is it a Windows- or a Wacom-component?
I just updated the Realtek Audio Driver this morning when I saw the update available in the Update center. The driver went from v 184.108.40.20614 to v 220.127.116.1140. Now, the Dolby Advanced Audio v2 won't work. It forgot my previous EQ settings and when I make a new one, it doesn't change a thing in the sound. Is there a way to roll back to the previous version?
This is really bad as I'm listening to lots of music on this laptop while I'm working and without the Dolby EQ, the sounds is not very good...
I want to get a x200 tablet (7453-AH3) just for programming classes, but wonder whether x200 will run VS2013 with win8.1 well, such as response speed, smooth or not, a lot lags or not, etc.. Also, will OneNote work well on it?
If I put a SSD in, will that make it better? If not, is that possible to upgrade X200 tablet motherboard & CPU to make it better?
When I put my X220T in tablet mode, the screen moves just enough to move the pointing stick in the middle of the keyboard to cause the cursor to move. I can't rest my hand on the screen without causing the cursor to move all the way accross the screen.
Am I missing a driver that would disable the nub when the screen is turned over it, or is this a design oversight? I've got the latest BIOS.
After a smooth clean installation of Windows 8.1 and loading all the Lenovo drivers, software, and apps, the system runs extremely well except in the Lenovo Settings Metro App, I no longer see the option of battery life protection (to charge only up to 50%). In addition, in the Windows power settings, there are only four power profiles: high performance, balances, power saver, and fly mode. I do have Lenovo Power Management Driver and Settings Dependency Packages installed. Lenovo's System Update does not show any missing installations.
I have a Lenovo x200 tablet PC (Stylus Only Version) - and recently installed Windows 7 Professional (64bit)
The OS install went perfectly...Once installed, I did all the Systems Updates for Windows 7, including all the updates for Lenovo using System Update 4.01.....However, I have an issue that I cannot seem to figure out...
PROBLEM # 1 The biggest issue I now face is, whenever I put the Digitized Pen next to the Tablet Screen within 2 seconds I get the 'Blue Screen of Death'....and it automatically Reboots....This ONLY happens when I touch the Pen to the screen....
I uninstalled the 'Wacom Drivers' - within the Device Manager, which i assume were installed by the system update(s)....After, uninstalling the issue of the 'Blue Screen' from happening when the pen touches the screen is gone.....However, I have no way of being able to use the Pen...it does not show any cursor or inking....Is there a specific DRIVER that I should be installing on my own to make this work properly - without getting the 'Blue Screen of Death' each time?....
PROBLEM # 2 My Second issue, which is suddenly occured after day 2 of installing updates is the Lenovo System Update 4.01 -- Suddenly, after working on day 1 - now, whenever i try to 'Check New Updates' i get a popup that says "An error was detected with the Package catalog for your system on the System Update Server. Please contact the Support Center".
I just intalled a new disk that is running quite well, except that I cannot run xpmode. I get the warning that I need to alter the bios, but not setting exists on the chip to alter it for virtualization. Why could it run before on the same chip, but no longer. Is there a workaround. Is there a way to copy the settings from the old hard drive? I suspect not, but I am sometimes an optimist.
My function key is always on so that I have to press it when I want it to be off. An example of this would be that I have to hit Fn+Alt+F4 if I want to close a window. I believe this has to do with me downloading a BIOS update for Windows 8 but I cannot find how to disable it.
I have created the special 8gb partition. I have installed RapidStart drivers app and enabled RapidStart. At first it works - i put helix to sleep, and i can see after some time that the led stops flashing so the tablet goes to hibernation. However, after lying some time it wakes up again, and stays in sleep mode, and not hibernated mode, and thus, eventually runs out of battery.
I am having a problem with a ThinkPad Helix and was looking for some advice on the troubleshooting process. The tablet was dropped and it suffered some damage. When I received the tablet I noticed that it still powered on but there was no video. Upon closer inspection, I noticed that the monitor is still displaying video but it is very dim. When I shine a flashlight to the monitor I can see the windows logon screen and the touch panel recognizes me tapping the screen.
The first thing that I tried was replacing the cables that connect the monitor to the motherboard as some of them looked like they had forcefully been removed. This had no effect on the issue as the monitor was still very dim when I powered it on.
I thought that the monitor was the problem and decided to replace the entire screen assembly. I was able to get another monitor that matched the part number of mine and swapped it with the old one. When I turned it on after swapping the monitor I stil the had a very dim screen. If it wasn't the monitor or the cables that connect the monitor to the motherboard then the only thing that was left was the motherboard.
Again, I found a replacement motherboard for the unit and swapped it. When I powered it on I still had the same issue as before, very dim video. It doesn't look like the thinkpad helix has an lcd inverter or I would have tried replacing that first.
Just received my Helix and I have some issue, one of the biggest issue so far is that it will only power up and stay on with external power, when I dock it it works fine, if I undock it it will shut down, if I plug the power cord to the tablet it will power on but as soon as I remove the power cord it will shut down, I have checked and the batteries are 100% charged....
I have a lenovo helix, and the factory restore on it, does not work with the bios key. it keeps telling me its invalid. I have a feeling the restore partition on this computer is not the correct one.how to get a copy of a lenovo helix restore disk?
On the Thinkpad Helix how to use the F-keys and leave the End-key to be End and not Insert??The keyboard-dock of the Helix does not have a separate Insert key (but Fn+End)Now I need the F-keys to be default.. but I don't want to switch End to be Insert..These kind of changes made the Helix to be unusable for Visual Studio ....
I just did a BIOS update the other day. No idea what version it is. When I booted it said it "detection error on HDD...". I have since reset the BIOS options to default, and now it boots to a DOS-like boot screen that shows the ATA HDD0 drive. But selecting it and hitting enter just flashes the screen and nothing happens.
When I attach a USB thumb drive with Linux, it shows up in the options on the DOS-like boot screen, but selecting it won't boot from it.The laptop is now totally uselss and I'm losing days of time and it's a major problem.
I have an X220 with a WWAN card. I don't use it anymore so I will be switching it out for an MSATA. I will then have two spare large antennas. I know that sometimes you want to match antenna size to wavelenght and sometimes you just want a big atenna. If in wifi, you just want it bigger, well, the WWAN antennas are bigger. Should I swap the wires so my wifi gets the bigger antennas?
I have a X200 Tablet, I can use my headphones when listening to music on my computer but whenever I go online to say Youtube, I can't hear anything with my headphones. The speaker on my computer is working well. The problem is I can't hear anything with my headphone when I'm watching a video online. I've tried the control panel and going to audio. The computer says the headphones are working properly...
