Lenovo Yoga 3 Flex :: Touchpad Is Noisy When Moving Cursor
Sep 28, 2014
When you lightly tap the touchpad to start moving the cursor, it makes a noise. It's almost as if its being depressed around one mm every time you touch it. Now, I'm not talking about intentionally pressing it down and hearing a click.
Just lightly putting your finger on the pad. Is the feeling of it depressing slightly and making a small noise normal?
I have been using my dell inspiron for about a year and half and it worked fine. But one day i plugged my charger for charging laptop and mouse goes mad... it starts moving to and fro of its own without me touching it.i googled the problem but did not found any useful material. i installed the ALPS driver and the only thing i get is i turn of my touchpad when charging and use a usb mouse instead.
I've noticed that in a few applications, specifically Outlook 2013 and Visual Studio, using the two-finger slide on the touchpad causes it to zoom instead of scroll. In other places, like web browsing, the functionality works normally. A few weeks back I refreshed my system and for a short time the issue went away...but now it's back.
I'm running a Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro with the latest drivers from the support site.
I'm experiencing this problem especially with Internet Explorer 11. I've disabled the zoom feature inside the control panel of synaptics, but very often when I scroll with two fingers the webpage is zoomed.
The strange thing is that the zoom value inside IE doesn't change! In fact if I refresh the page, it comes back at its original zoom aspect.
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!!
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 have this massive problem with my cursor randomly moving and clicking all over the screen without being touched. I hadn't had this problem until after I had my cracked screen replaced with a new one. I've tried unplugging the mouse, disabling the touchpad, etc. and nothing.
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?
I have just finished replacing the keyboard on my HP G72 due to spilling some water on the keyboard a few days ago & some of the keys not working after laptop dried out. However, I find that things are not as they should be as I just can't get the cursor to move. I don't use a mouse & rely on the touchpad. I've tried removing the keyboard & reinstalling a few times but all to no avail, even if it's that the keyboard itself might be faulty & I need to buy another one. I don't want to just assume there is a problem with this new keyboard only to find out that the problem lies elsewhere & that there are other things I should be doing or trying.
I did have to install a new keyboard on this laptop sometime last year after having a similar accident with water spillage, but installing the new one that time was pretty much a piece of cake, I followed the onscreen guides I'd looked at & everything was perfect once I'd installed the new keyboard.
I have a Dell XPS M1730 with 4GB Ram, 1TB in HD space. It is loaded with Windows 8.It works great except for one little thing. When I start typing I have to watch where the mouse is. If it is in the middle of the text I am typing, it will go there in the middle of me typing. This becomes very annoying.
I have a second monitor connected to my TP yoga and I want to work with laptop lid closed.
I set "When I close the lid" action to "Do nothing" when on battery power.
Now when I close the lid, the system is still on, which is good, but mouse cursor behaves strangely. After several seconds, it is usually moved to right bottom corner (over the clock/date area in desktop), with circle around it. Mouse is just completely unusable.
I am not sure what is wrong, maybe the touchpad/trackpoint/touch screen is being activated when the lid is closed, but the system is still running?
I have a brand new Thinkpad Yoga (20CD-CT01WW), running windows 8.1 64-bit, 8g RAM. Intel Core i7-4600U @ 2.10Ghz / 2.70Ghz
When using any program in desktop mode (first noticed it on Chrome, then Quicken, but really applies to any use), the cursor will randomly jump across the screen, usually to the upper right, and then without clicking, will close the window I'm working on, often losing my work. Sometimes I'll get random right-click menus without clicking the mouse buttons. I am using the track-point primarily, so thinking it might be inadvertent contact with the touchpad, I disabled all touch-pad functionality, but the problem persists.
I ran Norton Internet security, AdAware, and Malwarebytes to look for viruses but didn't find any problems. Just ran Lenovo update, and downloaded the most recent Ultra-Nav Driver. Now both touch-pad and track-point are using default settings, but the problem still persists.
I'm wondering if this a hardware or driver problem, or a windows 8.1 problem?
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.
I just got the Yoga 2 Pro and it seems like a great laptop / tablet. I have one big problem: the touchpad is near-unusable for me. It seems like I'm constantly activating the switch app gesture and just cannot use it.
How do I turn off all of the gestures on the touchpad so that it just functions like a normal mouse????
I've got a Yoga 11s which is barely a few months old and hasn't seen much use. Having the same problem - it won't power on or charge (powers on only when plugged in). In Lenovo Energy Manager battery status shows "Good" and charging status shows "Battery Connected". WIndows power management icon however, shows Plugged-in, not charging. Never had that problem before either, but it came with the power-on failure so I guess they're related.
I cannot get the Y2P to shutdown or sleep. When I try to shut down it powers off but after about 2 seconds it turns itself back on and boots up. Same thing happens when I try to sleep.I've tried pretty much everything I could find online including the following:
-Turn off wake on lan on the network adapter -Turn off auto restart on windows errors -Updated bios -Updated drivers -Disabled all non microsoft services -Factory reset of the OS
Went through every device in device manager and turned off "Allow this device to wake the computer"powercfg /lastwake (shows nothing).Shutting down isn't a huge deal as holding down the power button will eventually turn it off. But not being able to sleep the laptop when I close the lid is a deal breaker as the battery constantly drains.
