Having only purchased this laptop a few days ago can anyone tell me how much of a problem this issue is please?  My cursor only seems to be unresponsive under Windows now when the CPU usage is high, and not more frequently now that I;ve adjusted the palm check setting as in previous post.  TY.

Re: Solved all touchpad problems by installing Synaptics reference driver

Hello,

 

I just purchased three Thinkpad Edge Laptops to replace some older ones at work and have run into this issue as well. The mouse cursor will eventually just stop moving and the touch pad becomes totally unresponsive. After lifting my finger off of the touchpad and putting it back on it seems to work fine for a random amount of time then just stops again.

 

It would seem like a minor issue, but quickly becomes extremely annoying when working on the laptop from the touchpad. I have downloaded and installed the latest Ultra nav drivers from the Lenovo website.

Hi,

 

Does this problem affect the Edge 11 as well?

 

I was just about to buy the AMD version. It's a pity if the problem is also there.... :-(

 

I was reading in this forum about some quality issues as well (the screen bezel thread, for example). That's too bad...

Hello, just bought a thinkpad 13 Edge with all the problems, you can read above an solved them with the Synaptic driver. All other workarounds did not work for me. But now it seems to be fine! Thanks for all the users, posting here. Without you i didn't get no help!!

I think Lenovo has fired all of their software developers, because it takes ages before really anything happens. I also had this experience with previous problems i encountered with Lenovo laptops, where told on this forum being worked on. Never anything really happened. I am sorry to conclude that it almost seems like they are just saying something on forums to keep us customers of expensive products quiet and on hold until after a couple of years we all have another laptop (most likely not Lenovo then; might try HP instead for example then)... Be sure new Lenovo updates of this driver will only contain new features and cosmetic improvements but still will have this bug, so after 3 years we all will still be using a 3 year old driver because it's the only work around ..... I hope i am wrong.

Re: Solved all touchpad problems by installing Synaptics reference driver

Recently, i have been switching between IE8 and Chrome.  Although two finger scrolling seems to generally suck amongst all applications on the computer, it appears to generally have the most difficulty within google chrome. Not sure why, but it does.  I dont know if this is an AMD issue, Synaptics Issue, Lenovo issue or Windows 7 issue, but i really wish i had just spent the extra $300 and got a macbook.  Maybe when (if) Chrome OS comes out, this wont be an issue and i can avoid taking the apple plunge. 

 

For what it is worth a this point (3 months of Lenovo Ownership) I simply wouldnt recommend lenovo to anyone.  I've never had "good" support with any computer company after the initial purchase, so i guess i cant fault lenovo for that.  However, what i am not accustomed to is the fact that they shipped this POS out the door, with acclaimed features that simply do not function as advertised.  I dont know why the tech guys are scratching their heads one this either.  Clearly, a number of us have this issue, and it's probably much larger than what is on this forum, but we are the only ones ticked enough to actually speak up about it.

 

So there ya go lenovo, I am now at the point of actively telling people )and i work in IT) that they should not consider your brand.  Please - step up to the plate and redeem yourself.  This issue should have never existed in the first place.  That's not even getting into smaller issues like the stupid volume notification and random muting when when using a usb mouse.  

 

But hey, at least the keyboard is nice...
