ThinkPad Yoga - Digitizer is not working



I just received my new shiny TPY (again). The first time I got it, the digitizer wasn't working. After a bit of research I realized that it probably was a hardware issue (No digitizer, pen or wacom device in device-manager). So I send it back.

The mainboard got replaced and today I have my machine back. It was all working fine including the digitizer.

But from one minute to the other it stopped working and I can't find any wacom or digitizer devices in the device-manager.

Now my first thought was, that the Windows updates messed something up, so I've done a rollback but it's still not working.

Am I doing something wrong or is it a hardware issue again?


Thanks for advance.

Betreff: ThinkPad Yoga - Digitizer is not working

Hello. It isn't a Hardware Problem. It seems to be a software problem after Windows 8.1 Update.


I have the same problem :-( When I start the PC it works perfect, until I used it as Tablet. After that the Digitizer Pen didn't work. So I reinstalled all drivers. After that the pen worked.. so I tested it again as Tablet, after that. the Digitizer Pen didn't work. Now I installed all drivers again but the Pen didn't worked.


It is a big problem at Lenovo, because Lenovo has problems with the pen software a long time. It is soooo sad because I love the Thinkpad Yoga but with this Problem the price isn't acceptable. So I am going to send it back and wait for the Surface Pro 3. Because Thinkpad stands for the perfect Business Notebook and now... Lenovo has with the digitizer pen more problems than all others. And this is very sad :-(

Make sure to check all your drivers are up to date:

You can also use ThinkVantage System Update to check for newer drivers or BIOS.
