    Default Re: Windows 7 Clean Install Instructions for x61t

    I'm having problem with tablet inputs. After working with programs like onenote 2007 or even journal which uses a digitizer, I loose control of the mouse cursor. It won't respond to my clicks using the digitizer, and not even with a usb mouse. I can't click anything on the desktop, or any window opened. Sometimes I can click the start menu. Only way to make this work is to press 'control' 'alt' 'delete' and press 'esc' to cancel. Then I get my mouse clicks and digitizer clicks working again. I didn't notice this until I started using onenote with digitizer in class. I'm having same problem with 32bit and 64bit version of windows 7. Vista works okay. This is really annoying. I have went back to vista, came back to windows 7, then tried 32 bit / 64 bit, with without lenovo drivers, and all combinations I could think of. Here's my specs:

    LV7500, Multitouch (finger input / digitizer input), 3GB Ram, intel 80GB SSD, Bluetooth, intel wifi 4965agn, 8GB Sandisk SDHC inserted most times.

    If I were you, I would stay with 32 bit since you don't have much ram anyways. Besides, RAM seems to be expensive these days. If you can upgrade to 4GB for like $30, then I'd go for it and use 64bit, but otherwise, I think I would just use 32bit until next laptop upgrade. Even MS office, especially onenote 2007 is all 32 bit. So there is no advantage to use 64bit OS.

    I'm running Win 7 64-bit and love it, but I do have 4GB & a 250GB SSD. Love the 1400x1050 screen on my X61t which I mainly use on photo trips.

    i decided to try installing windows 7 before i had a chance to read this thread. I been installing drivers as i can find, but so far my tablet function (stylus or finger) is not working. can someone tell me which driver enables this?

    Also, should i re-install so that i can install these drivers in the order listed above (how critical is it now to follow the order..assuming lenovo has more recent drivers available)?

    thanks.

    Hey HP79,

    I have the exact same issue with my Tablet using Onenote 2007 on a W7 64 bit platform. Randomly it will freeze and the only way to unlock is CTR-ALT-DEL then click on task manager (do you notice that the first click doesn't work and then click again and it does!!!)

    Been searching all over for a fix to this, downloaded latest Lenovo drivers etc but no joy.

    Have you fixed your issue yet?

    Cheers,

    Is the Turbo Memory driver necessary if you didn't expressly purchase that option? My model is the 7764 CTO.

    Hi Timdroz,

    If it isn't in your tablet, then you don't need to install it.

    I'm going through a clean install right now... can anyone translate the list of the Lenovo drivers to match what's actually available on the Lenovo site as of today? I can't find the Lenovo System Interface Driver anywhere on the Lenovo site. Some of the others don't seem to match up easily either.

    It's probably much easier to just download System Update.
