Re: Switch ThinkPad Yoga Clickpad with new TrackPad

I don't know how to add a picture so here's the link

 

Presenting 4 keyboards representing 30 years of good keyboards and 1 piece of evidence that someone at lenovo was high as a **bleep**ing kite when they decided the Yoga S1 clickpad was a good idea. I'm trying to think of filming myself creatively destroying the clickpad to illustrate my loathing and emphasize the stupidity it took to allow it to be deployed.  

I'm considering

1. Good old sledgehammer

2. A tiny container of liquid thermite burning through the clickpad and a layer of concrete below it.

3. Taking it to a clay skeet shooting range. Mounting it onto a clay disc and blowing it out the air with a shotgun.

 

Seriously They should be giving these $103 replacement trackpads with physical buttons for free.

The originals are defective by design.

I totally agree with you. Lenovo should be giving out those for free. They should be glad we are willing to install it ourselves and save them the labor costs of replacing all these clickpad contraptions.

I also agree and I would love to see a video of someone destroying that piece of hardware. Only now after 1 year of troubleshooting I could bring it to work and I almost lost it multiple times on the way because of it.

Re: Switch ThinkPad Yoga Clickpad with new TrackPad

For those of you who did the switch, can you guys help me and answer few question?

 

Yoga S1 is my second Thinkpad, my first one was a really old IBM so I don't know much about the Clickpad design.

 

I use the Trackpoint when I type and Touchpad when I browse website.

 

So I want to know with the n10gx25w.exe driver, 1) is there two finger right tap and 2) two finger scroll option? 3) Can you still click the touchpad as left click?

 

I hate the loud clicking, terrible designed touchpad, but I need the two finger function, so I want to make sure the new Trackpad have this two function before I drop another $100 on this problematic laptop.

 

Thank you for answering my questions.

Strange enough. When I installed my non-defective new trackpad. I didn't even need to update the driver..

YMMV. but I have no issues with multi finger gestures on the touchpad.

I'm wondering if anyone knows the part number for the Thinkpad T540p and where to get it. There's a couple of sellers on eBay selling them but I'm not sure if they're selling an oem part or not.

Hi ChrisL - I just checked each of these. 1) Two finger tap = right click. 2) Two finger scroll works as intended. 3) Tapping or clicking on the touchpad = Left click (and can be configured). Hope that helps!

Re: Switch ThinkPad Yoga Clickpad with new TrackPad (Thinkpad Yoga 14 Installation)

2015-03-22, 4:34 AM

In reponse to NeverNorth

 

I wrote a longer response, but the Lenovo site crashed my Firefox.

The short short version.

I purchased the T440 trackpad from the ebay seller. It has the same physical dimensions as the clickpad on the Yoga 14.

Hardware Install

=====================================
1. Remove Base Cover
2. Remove Battery
3. Disconnect both ends of the Trackpad cable
Note: On the clickpad, make sure the black clip is pointed up to release cable.
4. Gently peel the cable away
5. Insert cable into new trackpad, push the black tab down.
6. Feed the trackpad cable through the hole.
7. Install Trackpad
8. Install Battery
9. Install Base Cover

Software Install
===========================
What you need:
- Yoga 14 Synaptic Drivers (jfgc09ww)
- Intel Chipset Drivers

1. Uninstall Existing Synaptic Drivers and Reboot
2. Install Intel Chipset Drivers
3. Unpack the Synaptic Yoga 14 drivers, but elect not to install.
4. In Device Manager, select PS/2 Compatible Mouse, Update Driver
5. Select Allow me to choose from a List
6. Select Have Disk. Browse to the x64 folder where your Synaptic Drivers unpacked.
7. Select UltraNav Pointing Device
8. Reboot

For some reason the Synaptic SMBus Driver included with jfgc09ww isn't fully compatible with the new trackpad. This may be corrected in a future driver release. The Intel Chipset Drivers installs a compatible SMBus driver, which seems to allow normal communication to the new trackpad.

Originally, I was working with the Synaptics SMBus driver, but the best I could get was legacy function w/o multi-touch. I used this setup for a while; however, the Charms bar started driving me just as crazy as not having physical trackpoint buttons. I kept farting with it until the Trackpad was working 100% and could disable gestures.
