Re: Thinkpad E495 - Lagging and unresponsive keyboard

2019-10-25, 18:19 PM

Just curious if this issue has been resolved for most poeple in the thread or is it still ongoing? I'm very close to buying an E495, but if this is still an issue, then that will be  a deal breaker for me.

Hooray!!!! I just installed the newest bios update (1.10) and can confirm that the weird spacing and key switch up has been fixed!!  I will contintue to use it through out the weekend to monitor it, but from the 10 minutes i just spent typing up some stuff, as far as my usual typos go, I definitely feel like this has been fixed.

 

THANK YOU!!!

Really glad to hear that they got it fixed! Also, thanks for sharing that it helped, since that clears up any trepidation I had about buying this machine.

So, for sure the bios update has greatly helped this issue, but I am sitll experiencing it every now and then.. not as often but i tstill seems to be happening

 

 

^--- just from that sentence there, you can see "sitll" and "but i tstill" that i typed above.

 

yes a lot better... but i still am seeing it happen.

 

anyone else?

Just a status update on this:

BIOS 1.09: A lot fewer issues but still some, I'd say 1/5 compared to how it was before.
BIOS 1.10: Just installed and so far I haven't seen the jumbled letters problem, but I often get a system BEEP when typing the words "very" or "ever" (although the letters come in alright) and, typing "rty" will frequently lead to a letter "u" being inserted like: "rtuy". This only occurs when I type reasonably fast of course, I'm sure many users will never experience this but still. Not sure if this was already the case on 1.09.

As a programmer and someone who writes a lot I chose Thinkpad for the good reputation of its input devices, and this is a bit disappointing, although it's more of an annoyance than a blocker. I appreciate the efforts from support to improve the situation.

Wow, the "rty" happens to me also! I will do it now, using my left hand, ring finger, middle finger and index finger, hitting only R T Y at a fast speed:

 

"rtuyrtuyrtuyrtuyrtuyrtuyrtuyrtuyrtyrtuyrtuyrtuyrtuyrtuyrtuyrtuyrtuyrtuyrtuyrtuyrtuyrtuyrtuyrtuyrtuyrtuyrtuyrtuyrtuyrtuyrtuyrtuy"

 

ALSO... if you do this with "ert" really fast, you will hear nonstop beeps

 

"ertretertertertertertertertertertert"

 

WHAT THE HECK LENOVO?
