X201T 2985-F4U -- Both finger touch and pen not working on screen

I have tried updated the drivers on lenovo's website to no avail. Im currently using win7 prof. I have also tried using the thinkpads system update software and it still does not work. When i go try and calibrate the screen both finger and pen have no response on the screen. I have checked the system device manager and there are no conflicts. Please help!

Hi and welcome to the forum!

The tabook says your model has multitouch (i.e. both pen and finger touch). Is this a new system you bought? If so, did you buy directly from lenovo? Did the touch ever work?

Try to install the following driver:-

If the driver installation doesn't help, subsequently try Windows Update, look particularly for Touch Input driver, if even that doesn't take you anywhere, then give factory restore a go (after backing up your data), to do so, press ThinkVantage button on boot to access Rescue and Recovery, and choose restore to factory contents in the following wizard. Note that factory restore is only available on lenovo preloaded OS.

Keep us posted.

Re: X201T 2985-F4U -- Both finger touch and pen not working on screen



have have since sent the laptop back to lenovo for service and they have replaced the



and it seems to have fixed the problem. I got the laptop back 6 days ago but today another bigger problem has arisen. I was able to use my tablet for 4 hrs today before it decided to crap out again. After converting it to tablet mode, the screen just totally went blank except for a bit of bleed through light around the edge....the screen is completely black though. After shutting down the computer and removing the battery and rebooting the problem still persists. I did notice that the tablet screen when converting to tablet has a fair bit of resistance when rotating counter-clockwise when compared to turning it clockwise. Could there be a pinched cable? Something cable loose?


I have to say QC at lenovo certainly taken a dip since the days of my T60 and X61. Wonder if I have a lemon.


We'll see what they have to say tomorrow. So far im not a happy camper.
