Helix Pen Stops working - Again!

2014-07-01, 23:47 PM

Hi, I have been through two motherboard replacements on my company Helix due to the digitizer pen no longer working. After the system board is replaced, the pen comes back for a while and then....dies. This weekend the Lenovo Update software recommended a bios update, v.1.24, which I performed, and now the pen has stopped again. I could really use soem help here, I think it's now a bios issue - or my system board just keeps malfunctioning. Any ideas???

Welcome to the community.


Not sure if it will help you, but there is an even newer BIOS now available:


v1.27 release 7/6/2014.
