Hi Bmnkk,

 

All touch sensitive buttons above the keyboard don't work and remain completely dark?

Could be a bad connection or broken cable.

Sorry, I don't know how to change the thermal management settings without pressing the appropriate button,

but you may try by changing power scheme to High Performance in Lenovo Energy Management and see if fan revs up,
maybe also consult Lenovo Tech Support before the warranty runs out...
