Re: Hotkeys no longer working - ThinkPad Edge 14, Windows 7

JameZ,

Please explain how can I become volunteer? I'm ready to help, because I do have this problem and I don't want to replace laptop.

I'd like some info about becomming a volunteer as well. Sounds interesting but depends on how much work and hacking it requires ;-)

Re: Hotkeys no longer working - ThinkPad Edge 14, Windows 7

I would just like to thank whosoever came up with removing the battery idea.. just works like a charm.
I was facing this problem for weeks and stumbled upon this thread. No need to do any bios upgrades etc (i did however install the power managment driver and hotkey drivers) ... removed the battery ... for the first time brought up the laptop on direct power supply with battery removed and it worked.

Thanks!

For Lenovo stuff:

 

I think (not sure about the correct order) problem occurs when you close the lid, the sound beeps and then you remove the power cord....

Well, I had this problem many times and can confirm that sometimes it's not related to lid close. Buttons simply stops working when system is running.

While it's not a real problem in the most cases (just annoying), in some cases fan stops working and laptop becomes really HOT. 1 or 2 times I missed this and system was stopped when reached temperature of 90C.

Because it's hard to reproduce this problem - I still don't know why and when it happens. Right now I have it (found that sound control doesn't work), but fan is working correctly.

Also had it 2 or 3 times for the last week. Before that I was happy to not have this problem during ~1 month.
