Yoga 2 Touchpad Stopped Working

2014-09-20, 1:52 AM

I have a Yoga 2 Pro that I bought last year in December.  About a month ago, my touchpad just stopped working.  I found and installed the new drivers from Lenovo's site but they haven't helped.  


A week or so ago, when I opened the laptop, the touchpad was working.  I think it has something to do with which mode the laptop thinks it is in but I can't verify that as switching between any and all modes still does not get the touchpad to work.  


I've tried the FN F6 button but it does not make any difference.


I have an external mouse that I'm using, but I just want my laptop to work.  


Any ideas?

Go to devmgmt.msc then Mice and other pointing devices. See if Lenovo Pointing Device is there?

Also check if Lenovo Transition is installed?

Enter task manager and end the ymc.exe process. If that fixes the issue, installing the generic driver will fix your issue for good.

What I think is wrong is that your laptop thinks it is in slate mode. As such it disables the trackpad. Feel free to look at my sensor checking program to detect a problem with your sensor. Regardless of that, the generic synaptic drivers don't disable on state mode. This is what you need if you have a bad sensor.
