Problems caused by ThinkVantage Lenovo update

2012-07-19, 6:39 AM

So I recently bought a X220T, and I used ThinkVantage Lenovo Update to update all recommend and optional drivers and software. 

Here are some problems:

1. I lost the Ultranav function. No more Thinkpad middle button scroll, but replaced by windows version. No more two finer scroll on the touch pad. 

 

2. When I adjust the volume, there's no more Thinkapad volume bar

 

3. When I push the ThinkVantage button, the simple touch interface shows up. Why would you need 4 different ways (mouse click, double finger tap, double finger touchpad tap, and ThinkVantage button) to get to simple touch which I don't use.

 

4. What's the point of having both ThinkVatange Tool Box and Lenovo Solution Center? They are the same thing! Why would you need both on a computer?

 

I thought the whole point of ThinkVantage is to cut done the maintenance cost for users, however, now I need to deal with all these problems. It would be great if someone can give me soem idea on getting the first two problems fixed.

It is a known issue but still not solved:

 

Remove Hotkey-Features from your computer (setup gets found in C:\Drivers\Win\Hotkey or C:\SWTOOLS\Drivers\Win\Hotkey) 

Download an install Hotkey-Features from Lenovo Website.

 

Sometimes the Power Management Driver also is affected. In that case remove it AND the Hotkey-Features and install both again.
