Windows 7 (x64) taskbar not working after using digitizer in tablet mode. x61t.

2009-10-07, 21:55 PM

Hi,

 

I have Windows 7 professional x64 on my thinkpad x61t. I updated all drivers from windows update and also from lenovo.com. So far it's been about two weeks with no problems. But when I started using tablet mode (fold) for lecturing a class (clone video output) in tablet mode, the taskbar stops responding to my clicks. No error message or anything, but I just can't press the start button or anything on the taskbar using a stylus. The point on the screen moves and follows my digitizer/mouse correctly, but I can't press anything. The keyboard works though, so I can restart the computer to get it back working. What could be causing the problem?

 

 

I've tried installing lenovo-wacom dual touch driver, but it only caused more problems, so I had to remove it and use the windows update driver.

 

 

x61 tablet / multitouch / 3GB Ram / intel wifi / bluetooth

Workaround: Press 'Control + Alt + Del' to open task manager, and click 'Cancel'.

 

Stylus worked okay during teaching using Onenote. The problem starts when I start clicking the start menu and try opening other programs while in tablet mode. Once the loss of pointer, the only thing works is the keyboard.

 

I found a workaround for this. Press 'Control + Alt + Del' to open task manager, and click 'Cancel'. Then you can gain control again, at least until the next time you loose mouse/tablet control.

 

 

I currently have hotkey driver and sound driver (final driver for win7). For system interface driver / tablet button driver / tablet shortcut menu, I installed beta drivers. All other drivers were updated through Windows Update.

 

 

I'd appreciate if anyone finds a fix for this problem.

Bump.

 

 

Same thing happens with Windows 7 x32.

Every time I use the pen, and try to switch to another window, all the mouse/pen inputs stop working. I have to fcking to control + alt + delete and then press enter to cancel, and it will work again.

 

I thought the problem not being able to right click and close ie in Vista was really stupid, and it never got fixed. Probably the same thing for Windows7 too?

Still no solutions so far.

I made a video to describe the problem.

Lenovo replaced my screen, but didn't help. I installed all the recent drivers. Also tried fresh installing Windows 7, and only windows updates. Still the same problem. I don't think it's a hardware problem. Anyone having this problem?
