Re: Miix 700 Keyboard dropouts are so vexing - need firmware update!

That is what is leading me to believe there may be a physical issue with the keyboard. Perhaps the bend in the wire is shorting it out on something.

OP here.  I agree that it is better in the flat position, but I have still experienced the error in that position.

Engineering is sending out a new keyboard to me for testing.  I wasn't given any real details on if its a new design or what.  I will let you all know how the testing goes once I receive it.

Great! I sure hope it is redesigned.

For me the situation is much, much better when the keyboard is flat instead of inclined.  I have to think that, in the inclined position, the downward force of my fingers can flex the keyboard enough to break the spring-loaded electrical connection to the Miix 700.

Hello,

 

I have the exact same issue that is being described here on the Miix 700

Random keyboard dropouts and it seems less frequent when the keyboard is in flat position.

 

Has anyone got info if this is a firmware or hardware issue?

 

Thanks!

Regards

mikehumphreys,

 

Whats the news with testing the new keyboard? Is the delayed letters still an issue? Please let us know what you have figured out. Thanks.

 

Tony

I'd love to update this.  But I still haven't received the new keyboard yet.  Supposedly they didn't have stock and are now trying to get more from the manufacturer.  So we shall see.

I have this problem.  The answer is that when typing the touch pad gets touched and this shifts the curser.  My Dell laptop has an option to fix this but this computer does not.  Looking to turn off the pad as I use a mouse.
