X1 Carbon 2nd Generation - Adaptive Keys not working

2018-09-03, 18:15 PM

After a recent update (Aug 2018) i relized my volume and screen brightness on screen was not showing.  I read post about using the hotkey integration tool.  It worked but only for volume and brightness but the I can not switch any of the keys on the adaptive screen.  When I reboot the hotkey fix is gone and I can switch between the adaptive keys but nothing shows on the screen.  For example, my volume goes up and down as I press +/- but it does not show on the screen.  In addition, I can press the wifi icon on the adaptive screen but I don't see anything.  I have uninstalled power manager and re-installed a lesser version but still nothing helps.  Any help from this forum would be appreciated.

This sounds familiar.  Have a look at this thread and consider rolling back the power management driver update:
