TV Remote runs my Laptop - Why?

Hi Forum, Good Morning!

 

I think I have a simple problem, and I will try to make it simple:

 

I am busily doing my office work on my laptop while I am watching Television. My Father is watching TV and he decides to change channels. When he changes the channel, a "Organize Favorites" dialogue box appears on my screen. Any button pushed on the Remote puts this on my screen. He could be 25 feet away pushing any key on remote, and it happens. It was bazzare to me.

 

I kept searching for a solution for this problem. I thought it was just me, but found out it was an issue with others. A point that was made was to put a piece of tape over the little window on front of Laptop, well, it does solve the problem.

 

I don't want tape on my laptop, is there a KB article or a solution for this problem?

I have the following:

Lenovo Y510   3 GB  32 Bit   (Vista Home Premium)

Model name: 15303

Model:  Lenovo Vista PC     To the people who help me - Thank You!!

 

Sincerely,  Timwa

Heello mate,

 

The question has already been asked, and you find the solution yourself. The piece of tape is the best way.
