Lenovo Thinkpad T410s - Tap / Touch Issues RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm having trouble getting my Lenovo Thinkpad T410s to react to touch correctly in Windows 8. Touch works, in general for swiping and panning, but tapping on tiles or charms yields no result. The visual indication that a tap has been received occurs (water ripple effect), but the OS does not launch the command associated with the tap.

    Changing pen / tablet settings in control panel seems to have no affect on the machine's behavior, but I could have missed something.

    Has anyone gotten tap to work (successfully launch an application) in Windows 8 on the  Lenovo Thinkpad T410s?

  • thefuNkpuNk, check your display settings.  This sounds like the response you get when the resolution is not 1024 x 768 or greater.  If the resolution is not that high and you cannot raise it higher than that, check to see what driver is installed.  I have had luck installing manufacturers Windows 7 graphic drivers.

  • I'm running it at the machine's native resolution (1440 x 900). Changing it to 1366x768 or 1024x768 has no affect.

    You can see the problem here:

  • Hi,  i had the same problem on my Lenovo X201 Tablet. I solved it with the last W7 Tablet driver from Lenovo.
