Yoga 3 Pro, fails to change to tablet mode or disable keyboard

2017-08-23, 1:21 AM

I have factory reset my yoga 3 pro numerous times and I can never get the keyboard to disable in tablet mode. Furthermore, the laptop should automatically switch to tablet mode when flipping the screen into tent mode, etc but it doesn't. Also, the laptop never is able to auto-rotate vertically. 


I have followed the instructions on the lenovo site by keeping lenovo harmony and one key optimizer but that solution never works.


Recently I have noticed that the screen brightness key doesn't work properly either. I use the dimming keys and they either make the screen the highest level of brightness or the lowest but no level in-between.


I have factory reset this laptop so many times. I feel like some of the original programs that came with the computer could be interfering or Lenovo just doesn't bother to keep the software up to date...

Hi Brian,


Thank you for posting your query in Lenovo Forums.


I am sorry to hear  that you are facing this issue even after doing a factory reset on your unit multiple times, since you have already downloaded the harmony and the one key optimizer unfortunately that did not work.

I would suggest you update the bios to the latest one and see if that works.


Hope this helps. Let us know how you get on.

Please feel free to post in Lenovo Community Forums if you have any further queries!
