Re: Game keyboard problem

  • Model - Y560

    -----
    OS loaded (ex. Win 7 64bit)  WIN 7 64 bit
  • Lenovo default OS? Yes
  • Issue happen on Battery / AC / Both?  Both
  • Updates from Lenovo Support completed? Updates failed to fix--seemed that the Windows update last week killed it.  It's as if I spilt a 20 ounce soda on my keyboard.
  • Updates from Windows Updates? Yes.
  • RAM installed (brand and 1 x 4gb, 1 x 2gb, 2 x 2gb?) 4GB default
  • Any error notification before issue occurred? Not at all
  • Any particular application which is running on the time this issue arises? All games on Steam--(Counterstrike, Richochet, Day of Defeat, WoW, SC:II, etc.)
  • List of games which will show this issue? (Do provide us the website as well)  All Steam games and all Blizzard games...
  • As gone through the thread, some mentioned that this is caused only after a Windows update on a Lenovo machine discussed Blizzard forum? Can we have the source of the information?  Not quite sure..that's just the rumor.  We just need a fix please.
  • When did you notice the issue? Friday
  • Other notes: Bought it on Newegg a week and a half ago.

    Re: Game keyboard problem

    Hello Everyone, this is off topic but I wanted to know if anyone has been able to play mafia 2 demo or full game on their y560 obviously before the whole numer/letter fiasco.  The reason is I bought this game from steam and its alright but I can't play it on my y560 I can only play it on my desktop that has ATI Radeon HD 4870 graphic card and according to the specs the y560 ATI HD 5730 graphic card should be able to play it.  Sorry to be off topic I just wanted to know if anyone else has the same problem.

    Re: Game keyboard problem

    Hey guys this worked for me for both Steam games and Minecraft:

     

    1. Open up any Explorer folder
    2. Navigate to wherever the Launcher.exe file is for the game you want to play
    3. Right click the Launcher.exe file
    4. Click Properties
    5. Click on the Compatability Tab
    6. Check the "Run this program in compatability mode for" box
    7. Select Windows XP (Service Pack 2)
    8. Apply, Ok
    9. Open game from Launcher.exe or the desktop shortcut that opens Launcher.exe

     

    Thanks for posting the WoW forum link!!
