Even when it is critical, there is a lag between the updates appearing in the repository and Vantage offering them. It will appear in Vantage.

I don't work for Lenovo. I'm a crazy volunteer!

Yeah, vantage doesn't seem to go through the list of the latest updates exactly; Lenovo maintains a separate software catalog that vantage reads. In fact, it goes offline when the update is being performed: if you happen to catch it during that time, vantage will actually say something like "the catalog is currently being updated, please try again later".

Re:X1 Extreme Gen 2 missing keystrokes

Well, I've been running 1.34-1.22 for five or so days now, and have had some opportunities to do a good amount of typing. Not noticing any issues with the keyboard. You can take this as you want, given the following information:

 

  • I never noticed any real issues that prevented me from staying on 1.31-1.23, if there were dropped keypresses for me on that version, they were unable to be discerned from regular typing mistakes.
  • I'm an ok typist at best, probably around mid-70 words per minute, and it seems like this issue is more pronounced with higher-speed typists.

 

Which is my way of saying: I'm happy with the update, but don't blame me if it doesn't work for you. :)

 

I have had one semi-weird behavior since being on 1.34-1.22 that's hard to explain, but it's only happened once: the battery claimed it was at 44%, and was not charging. Getting battery info showed it was charged up to capacity, so it was just a bad read-out: it was actually at 100%. Rebooting fixed it; maybe a Windows issue, hard to say, but I had never experienced that before. If it becomes common in any way I'll update here, but hopefully a fluke.

 

Otherwise, pretty smooth sailing.

I had been suffering from the 100% brightness issue, no matter whether the Intel graphics was on or off. However, I found that if I don't have the brightness set to the lowest, my ThinkPad no longer unexpectedly set brightness to 100% resuming from sleep. I have post my experience on another thread: https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-X-Series-Laptops/X1-Yoga-2nd-gen-OLED-power-saving-brightness-is-reset-Lenovo/td-p/3719138?page=6

Re:X1 Extreme Gen 2 missing keystrokes

Hey guys, I have fixed the keystroke missing issue physically.

 

Today I have my premium support replaced my keyboard. However, the new one is exactly the same as the old one which feels soft and missing a lot keystrokes while hitting on the edge or corner. I was disappointed but the support guy said they can only order keyboards from one vendor and that means probably all the keyboards are the same.

 

So I decided to fix it by myself. This is how I do:

 

open a key cap

have a piece of thick paper tailored to a tiny disc to fit into the middle of the key base

place the tiny disc at the key base on the silicon gel

close the key cap carefully

repeat for the keys missing strokes terribly

 

I tested a few different thicknesses to shorten the key travel and found that a thinner one has the best result.

So, how does it feel to glue paper clips on certain keys to make keyboard work, on a supposedly Lenovo's premier multimedia laptop?

Since I downgrade to BIOS 1.29-1.22 I am still having a good experience with the keyboard and thermals. No complains.

 

Anyway, I am using the Notebook as a "desktop computer" in my home/office most of the time, with an external monitor, and a wireless mouse and keyboard and good Bose speakers.

 

I brought a 2020 13" MacBook Pro for mobile work and travel and I connect via RDP to the Lenovo in some rare occasions when I need something.

 

Light years away from the Lenovo in every quality aspect possible, specially the keyboard.

Can anyone confirm that undervolting the CPU still works with bios 1.34?

I think is not the best way of solving your case. There are, at least two different keyboard manufacturers. In my case, the replacement keyboard is different from the "softy" one. This new keyboard is much better and doesn't have any problem with its keys.

 

I think, the best way is to change again the keyboard, it is a pain in the ass, but when you get the "right one" you will use this laptop much better.

 

Regards.
