2017-04-11, 7:54 AM

I also facing issue relating f10,  I have Lenovo z 580 from last 4 years, now in some instances it is continuously pressing f10, you might get key 6 is pressing as it might display in your browser, but f10 doesn't print anything it is difficult to find what's the problem is, I also facing some unwanted activities, sometimes it opens menu, sometimes password went wrong after 2 3 days I  check in online keyboard tester then I realise that f10 pressing continuously sometimes, temporarily I disables my f10 key, so currently I am able to manage with this, now planning to get new keyboard

Lenovo laptops are the most stupid laptops ever. Never buy one - from an original user. I spent 800$ and never got to use the laptop for more than 2 days at a stretch. had to constantly reset it and now the keyboard doesnt work.

@mypcfriend

At first, I thought this wouldn't work. Too much of a "fix-all solution."

Lo and behold, I'm typing this with the very same keyboard that, yesterday, had most of the keys registering as 6.

And all of my USB ports work again. And the speakers. And the touchpad. And the power light is actually changing states now. Before it would blink even if the laptop was totally off or on and in use.

That was possibly the most nerve-racking five minutes of my life, but my Flex 3-1580 (the model with a Pentium 4405U) is back to working like it was three days ago.

Some day, when I can afford it, I'll get a gaming laptop or a pc. But today is not that day.

You could kill the battery's ability to hold charge by doing that. I would recommend that anyone else with this issue remove it instead of completely draining it.

I had problems with letter s on screen not what are typed on the keyboard on my flex 3. Seems to have been triggered from the humidity created from being in a back. Nothing more than that. I think the keyboard controllers are supoer senditve on these lenovos.  Probably just a poor design issue.

This works!!!!! 09/14/2018 I had the same thing happen, fan ran at full speed, touch pad wouldn't work, and keyboard only typed 6's. Follow these instructions and like magic it is working again (typing on it currently!) Not sure what is forcing the battery to do this but glad it was a simple fix.

Someone find this man and buy him a beer!

Was anyone able to fix this issue? In addition to the problems noted in this thread, my fan is on all the time and my sound is not working. Help!

I'm nervous about detatching the battery wires. I don't want to break anything. Is this difficult? Any tips? I don't have any special tools. TIA
