Re: [E330] Keyboard software malfunction

2013-02-20, 21:44 PM

Hi, Testpilot_Evans


At this point, I would consider sending the machine in for service, as being able to keep the BIOS up to date can be crucial for keeping the computer running well, and that is not possible on this machine. Before sending it in, I would do the CMOS reset again to clear the BIOS since the BIOS currently on the system is not supported. The number for service in Russia is 8-800-555-0317. 


Hope it helps,

Hi, Testpilot_Evans


I had the same problem and I want to share the solution I've found:


Change using regedit.exe the next parameter: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\LENOVO\MessageClient\MediaKey\ModeList from "1" to "0" . This parameter defines whether this popups will appear or not.


Hope it helps!

Thanks cappa, that solution works. One thing to add, just make sure to reboot the windows after applying the solution.
