lenovo z510 airplane mode key not working

2014-05-24, 18:03 PM

 

Hi,

 

I have a Lenovo Z510 ideapad, Windows 8.1. Ever since I updated to Win 8.1 the F7/airplane mode key stopped working. I can do enable airplane mode if I go to PC settings, but not directly on the keyboard. I've read this is related to energy manager, but the energy manager software is up to date. Any thoughts?

Try this: Uninstall the presently installed energy management. Install the version for windows 8. You can find it in the driver folder of your drive or in Lenovo site.

Same problem in Windows 7 64-bit - Airplane key doesn't work. Energy management reinstallation doesn't help.

You should be aware that there is no airplane mode in Windows 7. It is only available for Windows 8 and above.

Thanks LenBlazer. I tried installing the energy management version for windows 8, but that didn't solve it.

I'm using Z510. When I purchased it the Airplane Mode key was working fine. But after a few updates of Windows and other pre-installed software, it stopped working (I don't know after which update). Right now my Windows 8.1 is up to date and I've tried re-installing the Energy Manager from the Drivers folder in Lenovo drive. It didn't help. I then installed Energy Manager for Windows 8 from the link: http://download.lenovo.com/consumer/mobiles/emw810028.exe

 

It didn't help as well. I can toggle Airplane mode from the settings though but keyboard shortcut isn't working. Kindly help. Thanks!

hello guys,

 

     Just enable utility.exe feature of energy manager and restart your computer...It worked for me. If utility manager is not running go to C:\Program Files (x86)\Lenovo\Energy Manager\utility manager .exe and run it....everything will work fine....
