Re: Lenovo Custom Program Settings

my computer likes messing with me...

 

The keyboard problem is gone, but now my wifi doesn't work... 

 

A Lenovo tech support guy said he's going to send a technician some time next week for the keyboard problem, but do you have any idea what might fix the wifi problem?

 

 

I checked the F2 Setup menu, and it said the WAN adapater was enabled. Wifi switch is turned on, and Fn+F5 doesn't seem to do anything because I uninstalled the Energy Management program (source of all my problems...)

Re: Lenovo Custom Program Settings

it's because power management. it contents some system files that you need to use function keys ( fn ).
re-install power management, press fn+ f5, make sure your wireless device is activated.

Re: Lenovo Custom Program Settings - y560

I am having this problem and it is driving me crazy!!! It is basically making my laptop when used without an external keyboard too painful to use. If I cant fix it, I will return it for a refund as a reliable laptop is essential in my work and the Lenovo Y560 clearly is NOT it.

 

I have owned about 6 laptops now (none Lenovo prior to this one). I have never experienced anything like it

Re: Lenovo Custom Program Settings - y560

Cant I control the power management option through Windows Power options? My wireless is still working fine (I never used the Lenovo program that controls this) so clearly I dont need the Lenovo power management utility for my current wireless config.

 

My 'Fn' functions appear to still be working.

 

I cant see any problems the laptop is having as a result of not having the Lenovo powermangement utility installed.

Re: Lenovo Custom Program Settings - y560

The camera is working but I spoke too soon in regard to the computer being OK. It's just doing other stupid stuff now when I type certain keys making using the laptop keyboard impossible.

 

I will re-install the Lenovo power management software though am doubtful this will be the  solution.

 

I actually think  the laptop is a Lemon and Im going to to attempt to get my money back. I am running a small business where a reliable laptop is crucial. Clearly I should have gone with one of the brands I usually buy like Toshiba or HP. Never any problems remotely like this. I even had several Acers at one stage for a training program I was running that would run rings around this Lenovo.

 

Very annoyed!

Re: Lenovo Custom Program Settings - y560

Just to add that I tried re-installing Lenovo Power management and the problem was worse than ever. Completely unusable keyboard.

 

Fortunately I still have the Toshiba laptop I recently retired to buy this Lenovo piece of rubbish. Toashiba still going strong without a hiccup after over 3 years. I'm transferring all my files back to it. Lenovo a complete waste of space after only 3 months!!
