I’ve had my Lenovo Yoga 11e for about eight months. It’s not a powerhouse, but it’s a really great couch laptop. And it has a touchscreen that can swivel all the way around to make it a bulky tablet.
When I got it everything worked, but there was some bloatware. So I formatted the hard drive and did a clean Windows 10 install. The touchscreen was not recognized by the OS. After reading a lot of Lenovo forum posts, I found an Intel driver, installed it, and voilà.
Then Microsoft released the Windows 10 Creators Update. I initiated the update rather than wait for it. Booted up and … the touchscreen was not recognized by the OS. I ran the Intel driver that worked before. It had two choices: remove or repair. I chose repair. It didn’t work.
I read some Lenovo forums — probably forums I already read eight months ago. I tried one other driver but no improvement (Windows said I already had the latest driver).
I decided to try the driver installer that worked before, except I’d try the remove option and then run it again to install. I did it, along with a reboot in between for good measure.
The touchscreen works! Strange. Maybe this is a fluke?
PS – I can’t find the driver anywhere online that I describe above. I’ve had it in my Dropbox since I discovered that it fixed my problem, but what about other people who might need it? The filename is IO_Win10_99.16.55518.zip and I’m considering posting it here. But would I want to download my touchscreen driver from some random guy’s blog?
[Update 2018/02/07] I decided to create a download link for the driver. I did a few minutes of research to find a site to host it.
