My Thinkpad Yoga 14 is now basically a standalone CPU, and not a laptop/tablet since my Windows 10 upgrade. The speakers did not work -- that was easy to fix. The keyboard on the laptop will not work, and the tablet will not rotate. I have tried so many suggestions to fix it, but it is now rendered just a cpu with external keyboard, mouse and monitor. This is very disappointing. Any ideas on how to fix the keyboard and tablet rotation features?

So, after 4 days of trying to solve this, including 3 hours on with Microsoft Support, I solved the problem.
There was a Synaptics Driver under Mice and other Pointing Devices. I uninstalled the driver and deleted it. After the reboot, the keyboard and touchpad on the laptop started working again! While I am glad to have my laptop back, I still don't have the Yoga rotation (tent mode, or rotate to portrait) back, even after selecting tablet mode. Has anyone stumbled on a solution for that?

So Lenovo will not help solve this problem, even after Microsoft gave up, and told me it was a "manufacturer problem". The email from support told me to drop the machine off at a depot for billable service. What good is hardware that will no longer work as designed with subsequent windows upgrades?
