Re: ThinkVanta​ge Button doesn't work on Windows 7 64 bit

is the Windows 7 64 bit installed from Lenovo recovery media, or is it an aftermarket version?

Re: ThinkVanta​ge Button doesn't work on Windows 7 64 bit

so you got both Window 7 32 bit and 64 bit? You got more than two partitions?

Have you got the ThinkPad Tablet Button Drivers installed? See below:

[ Edited ]

Another driver you could try is the Hotkey Features Integration drivers. A direct link: http://download.lenovo.com/ibmdl/pub/pc/pccbbs/mobiles/8jvu12ww.exe

 

This might be the solution instead of what I wrote above. It's supposed to enable all the special keys on your ThinkPad keyboard, maybe the blue ThinkVantage button too.

 

It also installs all kinds of ThinkPad-related utilities such as the On-Screen Magnifier etc.
