Lenovo Yoga 211 Flex :: Transition Does Not Disable Mouse / Keyboard?
Sep 6, 2014
I have a Yoga 2 11. It seems that all of a sudden that Lenovo Transition is not disabling the mouse and keyboard until the computer is in the full tablet mode. It used to disable these features in stand mode so when the computer is sitting on the keyboard, it's not pressing any keys. But it's not working anymore. I have uninstalled the program, re-downloaded the software from lenovo, installed it, and also checked for updates. I also tried both drivers for windows 8 and 8.1 ....
I just got my lenovo yoga 3 pro, and started removing what I thought was bloatware, but I'm guessing I removed something important. Now, the keyboard/mousepad doesn't disable when I'm in tablet/stand/tent mode.
I have a crack on my screen that starts in the bottom left and spreads to almost the top right. It is not bad and everything works fine except for the touchscreen. Only half the touchscreen works and sometimes the crack causes the other half of the touchscreen to act on its own and its very annoying and messes me up when I try to surf the web or use Microsoft Office. Is there a way I can disable the touchscreen?
I've come to just about my wits end with the Yoga 2 Pro transitions. The sensors are just far too touchy for my liking.
For example, If I lean forward at all with it or lay the screen flat, the keyboard and touchpad disables and/or the screen rotates 180 degrees because it thinks I'm in a different mode. Sometimes I lay on my side and rotate the computer 90 degrees with me and the screen rotates, which is not what I want.
I am having extreme difficulty discovering where to disable the rotation and keyboard/mouse disabling. Where I can find the option to either alter this feature to my liking or shut it off completely?
Just picked up this model from Best Buy yesterday. Like everyone else in the large thread I am having the yellow color issue as well. However, I have another issue that I can't seem to find any information on.
The brightness on my screen is constantly adjusting. It is most obvious when making the move from the desktop to Metro. After hitting the windows key, I can see the brightness increasing in stages (about 4 times) after flipping over to Metro.
I have disabled Auto-Brightness under the Change My PC Setting -> Power and Sleep menu. I have also disabled Enable Adpative Brightness under Windows Power Mangement but the issue still persists.
Is there any other location I might be missing a setting that can be affecting this ? Brightness is set to full and keeps dipping down.
When I flip to tablet or stand mode (i even get the toast notification that it's switched), the touchpad doesn't disable. I am still able to move the pointer and click. The keyboard however is disabled. I have installed the bios update, energy manager thing, and latest firmware from Synpatics.
I just bought a Lenovo Yoga 2 pro and installed windows 8.1 by itsef. During Windows 8.1 initial setup I was able to use keyboard to type in PC Name, but after that the keyboard and touch pad was not working/no any response any more. After Windows 8.1 lunched the keyboard also no any response. I have to use touch screen soft keyboard. But when laptop in BIOS mode (turn power off and press a small round button next to power button) the keyboard was working fine. So I think that the keyboard hardware is ok, but some thing iwas wrong with Windows 8.1 software issue. I also un-selected all on Easy of Access->Keyboard section in Windows 8.1.
I've owned my Y2P for the last 3 or 4 months now. Keyboard backlight always turned off/on with Fn Spacebar just fine... until today. Fn+Space just gets the keyboard backlight to flash off for a second, and then back on.
Also I checked and all of the other Fn keys work. Also the Caps Lock light doesn't come on either.
And if that's not all, My power indicator light is amber even when fully charged. (solid, not blinking)
My laptop (Ideapad Flex 15) updated and restarted this morning -- upon which I lost all KB function. I could not log in since could not enter my password. I plugged in a wireless USB KB which works. How to restore laptop KB function?
I recently bought a lenovo Flex 2 -14" one. The keyboard and touchpad together keeps getting disconnected at times. The backlight also keeps blinking when turned on. During that time, I am not able to receive any response via the touchpad and keyboard. It's like a loose connection. Keeps turning on and off!!
My Yoga 2 Pro has very often problems to activate the keyboard when I open the display.
This is what I do:
- working with the Yoga 2 Pro - close all applications and after that I close the display - after a while (can be a few minutes or several hours) I open the display - it take a few seconds until the display is turned on (that's expected) - in at least 50% the keyboard stays deactivated. The backlight can't be turned and the notebook does not notice any pressed key. I'm unable to log in :-(
- I need to close the display again, need to wait a few seconds - and when I open the display for a second time, the keyboard gets activated - not always, but most often. But sometime the keyboard stays disabled although I try the described procedure many time. If that happens I need to reboot the machine.
So I love my Lenovo yoga until I upgraded to windows 8.1 then all of a sudden every time I signed into my computer via Microsoft account my keyboard and audio would be completely disabled I called Lenovo support they connected to my computer went through all of my settings and uninstalled and reinstalled drivers, nothing his last guess was to tell me to restore my computer.
So I did and as my laptop ramped up it asked to sign into a Microsoft account so I did (keep in mind this computer is fully functional after the restore everything works perfect) as soon as I hit the enter key the keyboard and audio become disabled fully disabled my, physical keyboard. Since the computer worked great right after the restore I also know that it is not a hardware issue as I have already sent it out to get all the sensors replaced its a software problem that revolves around my Microsoft account who do I talk to about this Lenovo? Or Microsoft? Lenovo just keeps telling me that I need to restore my computer completely ignoring the exact issues I am describing ,and as far as Microsoft account, this is not something I control I only own the account Microsoft manages it so why is my Microsoft account disabling my keyboard, again I stress I have done every single driver check there is I have uninstalled all of them and reinstalled.
I have looked through my settings as well as had a technician remotely control my computer to confirm that the computer is in perfect working order no settings out of place and then I restored all my settings to default and then restored the computer and everything works great until I enter my Microsoft account email and password then my keyboard becomes disabled instantaneously. And yes I was able to sign in using the keyboard
I've got a Dell Inspiron 1420 with XP, bought in Malaysia almost 5 years ago. It was working fine till a month ago when the keyboard and touchpad started malfunctioning. I used an external keyboard and mouse to over ride the problem but from time to time, it acts as if a button on the built in keyboard is being pressed (for instance ctrl on the laptop is being held down so when I type the letter "f" on the external keyboard, I end up opening the Search tool). I don't know the internal mechanism of this laptop, but is there a way I could disable the laptop's keyboard and touchpad, and continue functioning only through the USB external keyboard and mouse? I tried uninstalling the drivers.
Well, didn't check before installing Macrium Reflect Professional but it detected 7 (seven) partitions in my Yoga2 13 (Not Pro) as follows:
1 - WinRE_DRV 1GB total 313MB used - NTFS Primary 2 - System_DRV 260MB total 28.5MB used - FAT32(LBA) Primary 3 - LRS_ESP 1GB total 497MB used - FAT32 (LBA) Primary 4 - NONE Unformated Primary (?) 5 - Windows OS 422GB total 44.58GB used (C NTFS Primary 6 - Lenovo 25GB total 2.46GB used (D NTFS Primary 7 - PBR_DRV 15.75GB total 12.46GB used NTFS Primary
All Yoga2 13 are like that from the factory or Macrium created some of them? If they are like that from the factory what each of the partitions have inside (other than, obvlously, the #5 Windows.)
In creating an image for restore in case one is needed which ones I should include in the image?
Is there any way to boost volume on Yoga 13?? I have my system volume and video player volume maxed out and it's STILL not loud enough. No it doesn't have anything to do with what I'm watching, and no, nothing to do with the player. Windows Media, VLC, and Divx have been tried.
I purchased a new Flex 2-15 online the past week. The model name shown on the back is "20405". Manufacture date is May 12, 2014. The User Guide refers to a "Novo Button", which is shown in diagrams as being on both the left edge and the right edge near the front. Neither location has a button of any sort. The right edge has a pinhole in the supposed button location. A curved arrow icon is next to the pinhole. I have an inkling this may be some sort of factory reset button. Lacking the Novo button, what is the procedure for accessing the features which the manual says are accessed by pressing this non-existent button?. That is, BIOS, and/or the one touch image backup/restore system?
I´ve got a problem when I connect the yoga 2 pro with my TV (8 year old sony, full hd) with HDMI. The picture doesn´t fit into the screen, it is too big. I tried changing the resolution of both yoga and tv and at the Intel graphics driver I can´t change the scaling option. H
I paid $60 just for some recovery discs to recover my accidentally formatted Yoga 2 Pro. The discs came with no instructions whatsoever, and using them is weird. First of all, there is two disc 1's, no disc 2, yet there is a disc 3 and 4. Support confirmed this is normal. There is also no prompt between discs 1,1, and 2, so despite making my best guess at when to switch, I can't confidently say I'm not screwing things up.
After the whole process completes, the bios can't find bootable media.
I had bought yoga 2 pro from Malaysia three weeks back. And I had traveled back to India last week.The PC was working fine till yesterday. Yesterday while I was working suddenly the system hangs and I had to hard reset. But after that the system didn't boot up. It shows boot device not found. I have switched it off and tried booting using restore button and opened the bios it shows that HDD not detected.
Similar kind of issue I faced two times before but if I hard boot again it worked fine.
