Having problems with your Lenovo IdeaPad Y430-5243U Notebook ?
New Lenovo Y430 keyboard and touchpad does not work
\015 This Y430 is a replacement Lenovo from a first unit which had a DVD eject problem (disc gets stuck). When I brought second unit home (after an OK checkup at the store), I discover the touch pad and the keys are not working. Windows Vista Premium boots up properly but I am not able to do anything else. I have to use the power button to force shut down the computer. Then, it opens with the page ''Windows not shut down properly'' and to select if I want a normal, safe mode etc. Since the keyboard does not work (using the up/down keys), I cannot make any selection but allow the time to automatically open to Win Vista. I tried pressing the One-Touch button, but since it is also Win-based, I cannot make any selection using my mouse/keyboard. Help! This is a 2nd Lenovo Y430 new unit and it seems DISAPPOINTINGLY defective again. Would there have been any button/switch which was turned off. I know I did nothing unusual with the unit but simply to turn it ON and keyboard/touch pad didn't work anymore. Thanks.\015
Finally, I decided and insisted on being given a replacement for another defective Y430 unit. I am just so glad that the problematic 2 units were discovered before the 7-days allowance for return/replacement of defective units. I now have this third unit of Lenovo to replace the first two defective ones. I do hope this works well and will not make me do a fourth trip to the seller for any returns/ replacements/complaints again. :)
I bought two y430s. I've had both y430's go bad, one at 8 months, one at 16 months. Both were motherboards. 1st on warrantied, second was not. $600 pieces of garbage.

I just purchased the new gateway netbook lt series and I have problems with the touchpad. Sometimes it does not even load and then when it does load it will be working and then just freeze up. It will then sometimes work after a few minutes and other times I have to re-boot and hope it loads and will work. What can I do I am so disapointed in my first gateway. Maybe I should of stayed with Dell?????
