Y460 - Cap sensors not working.


The Y460 cap sensor buttons are not working. Tried changing the volume, OKR and energy management button is not responding. When touching the buttons, the button would lid up then back down again as though nothing was pressed.


Tried rebooting the laptop however problem still persist.
