Fn+Fx, OSD eventually stop working

2008-09-06, 0:57 AM

I have a t61p running vista. After a few days of being on (with multiple suspend/resume, and fast user switching - I mention these because they seem to be factors) my Fn+Fx keys (namely, F3 & F5) stop working. Additionally the OSD stops displaying as well.

 

What should I do to either prevent this from happening, or restart the subsystem so that it works again? The Thinkpad/Lenovo directories are a mess and I really don't know what does what.

 

For what it's worth Fn+F5 does start TpFnF5.exe , but the exe does nothing (where running it normally should bring up the menu).

 

TPOSDSVC.exe is also running, as well as TPONSCR.exe.

Try re-installing the drivers from C:\SWTOOLS\Drivers\HOTKEY or download them here. Also includes the On-Screen Display utility.

Hi, this is a known issue in our german forum, it is related to new updates of system update : the atk hotkey or the hotkey utility drivers.

 

the regedit value of osd is not filled with reasonable values. this bug also causes, that the volume buttons, all fn buttons and the sleep action, when closing the laptop lid are not working from time to time with sl300 sl400 sl500 and possibly with other thinpads.

 

please report the bug to lenovo!!!
