Thinkpad Yoga - Touchscreen malfunctioning - Random clicks in vertical line

2013-11-18, 21:39 PM

Hi.  I just received my Thinkpad Yoga today (yay!) however already there seems to be what I can only assume is a fault.  Now and again, and now for a prolonged period (>1 hour) the touchscreen seems to keep registering clicks arranged relatively randomly, but within a thin narrow vertical band near the centre of the screen.

 

Hovering the stylus near the screen prevents the clicks occurring though, and so using the stylus I've managed to finally get into Device Manager and disable the touchscreen HID

 

I've tried looking for driver updates etc to no avail.  My laptop is currently turned off for a while, and I'll see if it's resolved once I turn it back on again.

 

Has anyone else had this issue, or has anyone got any suggestions?  I'll have to give Lenovo a call in the morning I expect, as this just isn't right!

This now seems to be resolved, or at least seems to have stopped.  Potentially was related to some DNS server software somehow (though no idea how!)

Looks like the issue is back again, even though it has behaved most of the day. Not too sure what could have triggered it though. I'll have to try and intentionally trigger it over the weekend I guess, though not sure where to start trying.

Just for others reference on this, after doing a reset back to factory settings the problem still remains.  It definitely looks like a hardware issue.

 

I'm going to be sending this TPY back + ordering a new one.

Hey, I currently have a very similar problem (mine malfunctions along a horizonal) and I am wondering if you were able to find a solution. Any info would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

I am afraid no info. My story ended by returning as DOA. Am still waiting for the 4600 in the UK before I reorder
