The keyboard just started malfunctioning on this Ideapad 100s, which is about 6 months old. On the 2nd row of alphabetic characters (starting with ‘A’) the only ones that work are ‘G’ and ‘H’. If I disconnect and reconnect the battery the keys start working again, until at some point (maybe after logging off and on) the problem returns. A USB keyboard works fine. The bizarre thing is that plugging in a USB keyboard makes the 100s keyboard work, and it continues to work after unplugging the USB plug. This makes me think the fault is not in the keyboard, but somewhere in the software.
The warranty has just expired – obviously the warranty period was judged to perfection.
I’m thinking there must be an easier trick to perform to get the keyboard working – surely Lenovo knows about this by now.
