I have a Lenovo Yoga 700 14ISK (ideapad) with Windows 10 64bit, whose keyboard and touchpad are refusing to work.
Everything else seems to be running smoothly except for these. I initially was getting by via the on screen keyboard until I began borrowing an external wireless one.
The following is what I know
Any ideas? I thought it may be a hardware problem, but since the arrow keys work in BIOS; I'm not confident that this is the case.
Solved! Go to Solution.

I ended up draining the battery completely to zero a few times and it started working! I later realized that the hard shut down leading to dead keyboard was only after charging it.
List of what I did:
Tadah! I turned it back on after charging it and it was working again!
At some point there was another hard shut down after I plugged the laptop in to charge. I drained the battery again, and that fixed the problem: again.
I bought a new charger and so far haven't had any further problems
