Y70 tablet mode isn't working...

Hi! I tried searching to see if this was already covered and didn't find anything, but maybe it is and I didn't see it. So my Y70 touch screen isn't working, which I enjoy using cause this thing is huge and it's faster with some things. Tablet mode is on, I have Windows 10, it was working a week or so ago. I've finally had time to investigate today. What would cause this to happen? Could updates have installed and done something strange?

 

Thank you!

Hi Tea,

 

Welcome to the Lenovo community!


Did the touch screen ever work in tablet mode?

Re: Y70 tablet mode isn't working...

I've only had this laptop for a couple of months, the touch screen worked up until a week and a half or two weeks ago now. I don't know why. I had thought that the tablet mode had gotten unselected and that's why it didn't work so I selected it and the touch screen still doesn't work. Maybe that has nothing to do with it, it seemed like it should since the icon is a hand touching a screen.  So... It's probably an easy solution for this but I haven't been able to find anything online and it's crickets on here. 

 

I just want the touch screen to work again, I paid extra to have that function and now I don't have it.

 

Probably operator error, my old laptop is a 10 year old dinosaur so I'm still learning all the new fancy things.

Hi Tea,

 

  1. Go to the Tablet Mode tab under Settings -> System.
  2. Toggle the "make Windows more touch friendly" option on or off.
  3. Select whether the device switches modes automatically, prompts you or never switches.
