X100e Touchpad / Trackpad button sticking / clicking

2010-06-06, 19:33 PM

Hi

 

I have an X100e (dual core turion ybased) which appears to have developed a problem with the left most key at the foot of the touchpad. Specifically, it has developed an annoying clicking sound periodically when in use. I believe the click may be something to do with a bar that may be sitting under the key to ensure that the whole key moves parallel to the keyboard when pressed (much like other wide keys such as the space bar, the shift or enter kes).

 

What I would like to know is whether there is a way to reseat the key to resolve the clicking sound or whether rectification of the problem lies in returning the product to a service centre for the palm rest (part code: 60Y5284) to be changed.

Roger-

 

I just discovered a similar clicking/sticking problem for the "m" key on my x200s.  Did you ever find a solution to your problem?

 

Thanks.

 

Greg

Hi Greg

 

No - I haven't found a solution - will be getting in touch with Lenovo support for repair / replacement under the warranty. It's one of those things that, although minor, is a significant irritation when using the device. I am suprised to hear that the problem affects the higher-end X200 though, but I suspect the mechanics of a thin profile laptop keyboard require tiny mechanical guides that may be prone to the problem ...
