Windows 7 Update Module KB979155 (Windows 64-bit). For: Lenovo G560 drivers & software. Windows 8, Windows 10, Windows 8 64-bit.
PROBLEM: At random times, both the touchpad and ThinkPoint stop functioning. My USB mouse continues to work through this time (if I'm using the touchpad/Thinkpoint and it stops, I can reach over and move the mouse and it works). For instance, if I am moving the mouse pointer across the screen to click a link, as it moves, even if I'm still holding the Thinkpoint sideways or sliding my finger on the touchpad, the pointer stops and won't move in any direction and the mouse buttons (both above and below the touchpad) cease to respond. No error messages appear. Once in a while (around twice per week) the keyboard goes into what I like to call 'crazy bollocks mode'.
During this mode the keyboard goes completely haywire. Let me illustrate why it deserves the name: - Pressing 'a' always produces two enters, but most other keys do not have a fixed effect. The effect of these keys changes over time and each time crazy bollocks mode is initiated. - It seems to favor two letters instead of one. For example, pressing 'w' might give something like 'uu' and the left shift might produce two dots. - Crazy combinations are possible, e. Amd Driver Stopped Working Windows 10 more. g. Once backspace opened the calculator and F9 the task manager.
PROBLEM: Every now and then, I will be typing, and one of the keys is more difficult to press than normal, and it feels 'mushy' and like there is something stuck underneath it. I do not eat while using my computer, or allow any small objects/food near the computer, as I do not wish for these things to get stuck in the keyboard. This started happening in the first week I had the computer, though it has not happened recently. It's never been the same key consistently. One time it was the backspace key, another time the space bar, another time the enter key. As I carry my laptop with me in my backpack quite often, it's possible whatever is stuck in there shifts around to where it's either in the way or out of the way.
