x220 tablet clicking problem

Hello all,

 

I have this massive problem with my cursor randomly moving and clicking all over the screen without being touched. I hadn't had this problem until after I had my cracked screen replaced with a new one. I've tried unplugging the mouse, disabling the touchpad, etc. and nothing. Help would be awesome. Thanks ahead.

Re: x220 tablet clicking problem

Kindly update the BIOS and update the driver from ThinkVantage System Update.

If the issue persist then you need to reinstall the Operating System

Thanks for the response. I updated the BIOS, but the problem still exists. If I were to update the thinkvantage system, the newest one I could find was from 7/25/11. I have windows 7 on 64 bit.

I have the same problem, attempted the same solution and found no results. My university has a lenovo repair center would they cover this under warranty if I were to take it there?

Re: x220 tablet clicking problem

There are a few related threads here, but I have yet to see anyone that reports the problem as solved.

 

For me this gets worse when running a full screen video for some odd reason.  Right now my X220 is plugged in but not charging ('charing will start at 90percent') and it's not doing the random clicking. But the moment I play a full screen youtube video the problem appears, stopping and starting  the video say three times per ten seconds or so. I end up having to unplug the charger to stop it.

@lanctotsmDon't trust VCU's repair centre

 

I took mine to another repair center where they took down my information serial number for warranty verification and had me come in the next day. They replaced the panel with no questions asked... for free! Replacement had a dead pixel and they replaced it again! Could definitely recommend them!

Re: x220 tablet clicking problem

I have the same issue, which crops up frequently.  It is obviously the touchscreen doing the clicks, since I have it set to show the expanding sonar circle when I touch the screen and all of the random clicks have that circle.  My guess is that the sensitivity of the touchscreen is too high or that it is getting some sort of charge buildup and confusing the touchscreen.  When typing or in IE, you seldom see it (in fact maybe never),but when playing some older full screen games, it is fairly common and on the desktop it is common (1 to 10 times per minute).

 

My 2 cents.

Re: x220 tablet clicking problem

Soooo..... Any thoughts, Lenovo?  Can the sensitivity of the touchscreen be adjusted somehow?

Hello eric33,

 

Sorry for the late response, can you reinstall the Operating System and then check with updated driver as issue solve.
