Re: E485 strangely unresponsive keyboard

I messaged Andy and he swiftly sent me a beta bios 1.28 (I can´t redistribute it), which seems to solve the keyboard problem entirely. My typos are only mine finally Smiley Happy Send him a message as well.

Re: E485 strangely unresponsive keyboard

Same here - Andy sent me a beta BIOS update link via private message, and it seems to have fixed the issue! I haven't been using it for long since the update yet, but so far, haven't noticed anything wrong - no swapped letters or misplaced spaces whilst typing this message, for example (all typos entirely my own Smiley Very Happy )

Re: E485 strangely unresponsive keyboard

Andy, can you provide us all the beta link, not just through PM? We would gladly make our computers useable. Or is there some guideline preventing that?

Re: E485 strangely unresponsive keyboard

Hi,

 

I heard similar problem about the A485 (see here). Are you working on a fix there as well? I'm thinking about buying an A485 that's why I'm asking.

 

Also offtopic: I hope there will be non-Realtek Wifi cards available for the A485. I have good experiences with both Intel and Atheros cards.

I'm having the same issue. Can you send me Bios update, please?

Me too.

 

E485, using crypted partitions which no password echoed is not that easy Smiley Wink

Re: E485 strangely unresponsive keyboard

Andy,

I would appreciate a link to the beta bios as well!  Good news if this works.

Re: E485 strangely unresponsive keyboard

It's been over a month since release and half a month since the first post of this issue, surely there is some semblance of a solution that can be publicly posted to the multitude of problems this laptop has? I've waited a week to get a response from my pms, @Andy_Lenovo. This is unacceptable. Seriously considering a refumd right now. This level of screw up should have not been permitted to happen, or a recall should be in due course.

Re: E485 strangely unresponsive keyboard

If a BIOS update is on the way, (and other posters say it is), I'd prefer to give it plenty of time to be stabilized. I'm guessing these issues are there in the first place because a new chipset collided with a hard deadline. Smiley Happy
