Thinkpad X61 touchscreen not working

I cannot get my Lenovo Thinkpad X61 tablet pc touchscreen to work with my finger. It only works with the digitizer pen. How do I fix this?

    How do I change that setting?

  • tombo467 Apr 23, 2010

    Only the supplied digitizer pen works, not fingernails or other pens. The manual and the internet reviews say it can use either the supplied pen or a finger, I just can't find out why the finger won't work or how to change the settings.

Hello and welcome to FixYa.
the screen has two settings Pen And Finger, it must be set to PEN so it only functions with a pen.

you need to change this setting to finger to get it to recognize the finger touch.

    Just a moment and I'll look into it.

  • Ekse Apr 23, 2010

    What I just said might have been wrong, all the touch screen devices that I've ever used don't have any setting to change this.




    You may need to press it with your fingernail, or try a normal pen, does a normal everyday pen work?

  • Ekse Apr 23, 2010

    If you use both your finger and the Tablet Digitizer Pen simultaneously for
    input to the screen, only data entered by use of the Digitizer Pen will be
    processed.




    If you use your finger to input to the touch panel, touch only one point at a
    time. If you touch several points simultaneously, the input will not be
    processed correctly.




    With the touch panel, gradually a discrepancy may start to appear between
    the point you touched with your finger during the finger point, and its
    actual position on the screen. To avoid this, regularly correct the accuracy of
    the finger input by use of the touch panel Settings Utility.




    You should have a Touch panel settings utility on the computer take a look into it, and make sure your only touching one point, and that noting else is touching the screen, also make sure that there is noting stuck on the screen.

Lenova x230 tablet swivel hinge repair


It is possible to replace the hinge, but it is a couple hours of tricky work. If you are not comfortable completely dismantling your computer, I would take it to a repair shop. You can usually find the hinge on ebay. Just search for "thinkpad x230 tablet swivel hinge part".

I replaced the hinge on my x61 tablet without any trouble, but I am very comfortable with repairing computers. Take lots of pictures to make sure you get it back together correctly, and keep track of where the screws go, there are a lot of them. Good luck!

Here is the repair manual for the x230:

Windows xp x41 migration vto x61


Have you tried just swapping the HDD into the new computer? The hardware might be similar enough for that to work.

Personally I would collect my files onto a flash drive, and start with a fresh install of the operating system on the x61. It will run much faster with a fresh install.

There is a list of common backdoor passwords for BIOS locks here. If these do not work you may need to seek help at your local computer repair facility, as cracking these passwords is either extremely difficult, or involves dissasembling the machine.

Hi...I just formatted my x61 tablet with windows XP pro...But I cannot get any of the tablet features and touchscreen to work...I have all the updates and lenovo toolbox say everything is installed...did i...


Maybe IBM have some drivers but as XP is obsolete, they may not.

Operating Systems as supplied from new.
Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium 32-bit
Microsoft Windows Vista Business 32-bit and 64-bit
Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate 32-bit
Microsoft Windows XP Tablet Edition 2005

Are you using XP Tablet Edition as that edition has the drivers for the features?

Problem .......x61 tablet help !!!!!!!


Hello snapshots,
I have an x61, and you may want to check that all of the keys on your keyboard are not damaged, and that none of them are stuck in the pressed position. That is what the "stuck key" message typically means. If you check out the keyboard, and all the keys are fine, and if you are still receiving this message, try calling Lenovo support. There is an off chance that your keyboard (or other components) may be slightly defective.
Here is the link to the Lenovo site: http://lenovo.com/planetwide/select/selector.html
Hope this helps!
