Re: X1 Extreme Gen 2 missing keystrokes

According to readme.txt, supplied wih update, it aimed to fix some security CVEs, and not supposed to fix any issues. At least, officially...

I can not confirm any significant improvements so far, but definitely need more testing.

Could someone please provide download links to the latest "fix" that maybe solves the problem? I'm sitting here very frustrated after a day with a lot of missing strokes :(

 

I wanna try it out before returning this...It's a shame with this good of a computer on the other aspects.

 

thanks

@Sinhro

Force shutdown your Notebook by pressing Power button for more than 4 seconds.

Then, turn on again and see if it works.

I'm holding off from using updates I'm not sure what they're for. I too haven't seen this recommended by Lenovo Vantage or the website itself, via Service Bridge. I was waiting for someone to say they messed up something.

Same here, trackpoint firmware update failed and now my trackpoint and the top buttons of the trackpad are dead. Tried to reinstall drivers, restore windows but nothing...

On the other hand, at least for now, the keyboard behaves WAY MUCH BETTER now after installing the other updates from the webpage. So far no missing keystrokes. But the trackpoint stuff is another issue now....

For those that lost the TrackPad and TrackPoint, force shutdown your computer (holding power button for several seconds), and then turn on.

Yesterday happened the same to me, and with this they worked again.

What other updates?  I'm running the latest AFAIK, but the trackpoint firmware had no impact for me.

1. I'm experiencng all the issues we had discussed lately and I don't have the dolb atmos logo on my keyboard so I'm assuming it's more a regional thing as I'm from Scandinavia.

 

2. I hope the mention about the external keyboard was a joke. I would never accept that as a solution. Please don't even discuss about it so it won't get wind beneath it's wings and become Lenovo's official solution :smileyvery-happy:

 

3. I doubt the TrackPoint firmware helps the issue as you can easily produce the missing keys by pressing the key's edges so it's completely mechanical in that aspect.

 

4. One of the previous TrackPoint firmware update also bricked the TrackPoint and it broke completely. Last time we had to wait about 2 weeks to get a new update to get it back working. I have said this before and I say it again, be very cautious when installing Lenovo's updates which aren't mandatory like the TrackPoint, if it does work on your laptop, there is a great risk it won't after you update it. Lenovo has a reputation of releasing bricked updates and I have experienced two of those by now. The previous TrackPoint firmware which bricked it and then a Intel graphics driver which bricked the brightness control and the display was at 100% without possibility to lower it.

 

5. Other things to mention, yes the battery is poor and I hate the Oled display's ugly mesh on top of it. Back cover has some screws bottoming out or threads ripped from factory and all sorts of stupid things which should never be on a 4000 € laptop. But my biggest consern now is that the laptop has felt sluggish fom the get go and I'm thinking that the 4K display might too heavy for the CPU? I mean the laptop feels like it's laggin all the time. And as I mentioned on some previous post, when I move the mouse around while watching a video for example, the video stutters and CPU's GPU is almost at 100%. I did a test in (testufo dot com) which shows the screen FPS and this X1G2 barely gets 48-50 FPS when I had my X1 Carbon 4th next to it and it pushed steady 60 FPS. I attached a picture of it.
