lenovo sk-8845 / bluetooth auto ON ? (PIC) BOTH SOLVED !

#1 Post by re404 » Thu Jan 07, 2010 5:47 am

Hi all,

Happy happy 2010 !

2 issues under Windows 7:

1.
I have this keyboard (and love it):

http://img2.zol.com.cn/product/8_450x33 ... AmNVVQ.jpg

It used to work quite perfectly in windows 7 until drivers got updated by Windows Update (I believe). I restored the old drivers (I think) but now the trackpad and trackpoint still don't work anymore. And the blue function-keys doe not work as well (it's just a plain standard keyboard). I can't find any Windows 7 / Vista drivers anywhere. HELP !?

With the restored drivers it looks like this:

With the new one it LOOKS better, but performs the same.

2.
My Bluetooth switches off everytime I reboot windows. I checked BIOS settings and Windows bluetooth settings and power saving settings but can't find anything to make it turn ON automatically. HELP 2?!

Thanks a lot again!

Cheers!

After following http://lnv.lithium.com/t5/Windows-7-Dis ... 6708447B9E the function keys are back (although i don't get the green bar when changing the volume for example)...

Device manager now looks like this:

Trackpoint and pad still don't work :( .


And issue 2. is still not solved either ...

Have you (re)installed the Hotkey driver? That's required for the volume showing.
No ideas on BT, I don't use it.

@ re404,
I have the same Bluetooth problem using Win XP SP3. Nobody has been able to supply an answer. I have searched Windows knowledge database and IBM/Lenovo support pages with no success. It is merely an annoyance, however it is rather irritating. :(

Maybe this (related) post helps: http://www.paralaptop.com/lenovo-laptop ... a-n95.html

And on the Lenovo forum they mention: Go into BIOS, restore all default values, and it works!

@RBS:,
Thank you for that tip. I restarted and entered BIOS, used F9 to restore defaults, and since then Bluetooth has stayed on. :thumbs-UP: :D

Seems to work indeed!

Now I only miss my trackpoint and -pad on the external keyboard. Anyone?

Thanks!

Sorry, matey, I don't have Win 7. Maybe you should post the question in the Win 7 section?

Yes that helped!

I uninstalled all drivers through the hardware manager and uninstalled all Lenovo touchpad and keyboard software from the Programs and features.

Then I installed the drivers provided on the page you just mentioned.

In Windows 7 I had to install it from:
C:\Drivers\KYB\v2kyb03us17\WinWDF\x86\dpinst.exe
And:
C:\Drivers\KYB\v5kyb04us17\vista\x86\setup.exe

Thanks and good luck to the rest.
