Yas, there's another thread on this, but the answer there (the charger was kaput) is not the answer for mine - unless the charger died and the brand new one was DOA - the new one I bought a few weeks ago when the original was mislaid for a couple of days, but never opened the box when the original turned up. Both chargers actually run the computer, it's just not charging.
There's also a sideways reference to this, on https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-X-Series-Laptops/X1-Yoga-Wacom-driver-7-3-4-25-seems-to-be-bro...
I had the exact same thing as that one happen (touchscreen quit touching), on the same day. Having had similar things happen before, one of my first guesses was that Windoze had updated something that broke the touchscreen software. Looking at the activity, I saw that indeed, it had installed a "new" version (xxx.25), for which Wacom's current version was xxx.28 - why on earth Windoze would actually downdate a driver automagically is beyond me. The solution, as found in the link, was to uninstall the downdate and install the current one.
Unfortunately, I now have a problem that is worse (not touchscreening was mainly an annoyance, but not charging the battery or running off of charger power will be fatal if not fixed in time) and has been harder to track down so far.
This morning (4/27/2017), out of the clear blue, when I plugged in the charger, the screen started blinking dimmer and brighter. I finally figured out the change in brightness was corresponding to the appearance and disappearance of the little wire-plug on the battery icon, which shows you've plugged in a charger. I tried a new charger, but no joy... also no charging, and the battery percentage sank slowly in the west. I updated from the Lenovo software site, and at least the annoying blinking went away, and the battery charge quit falling, but it hasn't started going up, yet. I'm gonna do some more updating and see what finally fixes it (assuming I can get it fixed before it bricks itself). Not a happy Lenovo camper, today.
It does seem to be running off the charger power, so hopefully I can find the solution before the paltry 10% charge that's left slips away completely. I'll post that if and when I find it.
Having now applied all the updates I could find, I have the computer running steadily on power, but still not charging.
There may be a bit of success, as it shows charging briefly when plugged it: the fill-up bar on the battery icon runs across the battery, which I think indicates it's charging... but this is only for a few cycles, a few seconds, and then the fill-up stops and it's business as before, running, no charging happens, and sitting on 10%.
I'm still thinking this is a software issue, either a parameter setting of some sort or an update that hasn't gotten applied. At least one part of the update procedures was a little iffy - it messaged that the "battery pack" should be full and the computer should not be turned off while the update was in progress. Since the battery was at 10% with no charging taking place, that fullness was of course not happening, so...
I'm pretty frustrated by this, but I'll keep poking at it. If there's some place I should be looking for software versions or parameter settings, please tell me.
Thanks for any and all help...
