Yoga 900 clickpad has developed a mind of its own

Good evening Smiley Happy

 

I've been happy with my Yoga 900, however the clickpad over the last week has developed a mind of its own.

 

It's been clicking on things when I've been trying to just move the cursor, not clicking on things when I've wanted it to click, scrolling for short distances when using two finger scrolling then giving up part way through despite having two fingers on the clickpad or just simply not working at all, and oddly the gestures I could never get to work (e.g. browser back and forward) all of sudden started working even though I didn't actually have three fingers on the touchpad at the time, nor did I want to go back three pages.

 

I'm using the latest Synaptics driver from Lenovo, have disabled the more annoying personality quirks (the three finger gesture was very quickly disabled) to try and reduce the annoyance factor, have turned the sensitivty down as far as I can go without needing to press forcefully to use the clickpad generally, my fingers are clean, the clickpad is clean (with a slightly damp cloth) and still the quirks persist.

 

Has anyone had any similar issues or have any possible solutions?

 

Thanks Smiley Happy

Hi douglasasc10,

 

I had similar issues with my 900 following a windows update. After reinstalling the chipset driver and then the Trackpad driver these issues stopped for me. Both drivers are available from the lenovo support website.

 

Hope this help you and let us know how you get on
