ThinkPad Yoga 460 - None of the sensors are working after resetting

2016-07-12, 18:29 PM

Faced a problem with a network adapter of the system. I had done a factory reset of the system the soln didn’t resolve my issue. Called for service of the laptop and the component is replaced and the network adapter is fine for now.

 

After reset my sensors of the system stopped working like the auto rotate, the accelometer etc. I'm unable to find the fix for this. 

I have tried disabling-enabling, uninstalling and updating the driver settings in Device Manager - Sensors.

The person who came for replacing the network adapter does not know either, he suggested resetting the system again.

 

Can anyone please give me a solution to this problem. This seems like a software issue only.

 

Solved! See the solution

Hi

 

I think it can be interesting for you to update the drivers of the computer.

 

Here are my general tips on updating the drivers on a Thinkpad.

1) Try first Windows Update and update all the drivers and Patches

2) Try Lenovo System Update to get any new/missing drivers.

3) Try to install Lenovo Settings and Lenovo Companion from the Windows App Store, Lenovo Companion also has a "update driver search"

4) Sometimes all that software does not recognize some updated / missing driver. Check Lenovo's Support Site and search for your specific model drivers (use the full model number of your Thinkpad).

 

Regards

Intel Integrated Sensor Solution seems to be the only driver download that seems to be useful. I have already tried installing that, but, my systems sensors are still not responding.

 

Can you tell me if there are any other drivers that need to be installed?

This did the trick. Although I found this after resetting the device.

All Sensor issues are resolved now.
