I've maybe had that happen once since I got the keyboard.

Have you updated all the drivers or are you still running the ones that came out of the box? I wonder if it is a driver/software issue or if they fixed the problem on newer keyboards.

Certainly a lot of people on various forums report this issue.

I'm using the drivers out of the box:

Driver Provider: Microsoft
Driver Date: 6/21/2006
Driver Version: 6.3.9600.16384
Digital Signer: Microsoft Windows

The manufacture date on the sticker is 13/01/24 (Jan. 24, 2013).

Yeah that must be it. I had tested the keyboard in the shop (being aware of the issue thru forum reports), there were no dropped keystrokes then. After which I went home and upgraded everything I could. I've had the problem ever since.

The issue must be in one of the newer drivers.

I apologize for digging up an old thread. I was having a lot of issues with my Lynx after upgrading it to Windows 8.1 I purchased it second hand from craigs list and did a full wipe and installed my own copy of Windows 8 pro on it. I used the Lenovo Lynx 8.1 driver pack listed in the help and support section of their website for this product. I still had tons of display issues, the device lagging properly, not playing videos properly, wifi issues, etc... I did a bit of digging and found a full driver pack for the Atom Z2760 that the Lynx uses. Coincidentally it was also provided by Lenovo but for their ThinkPad Tablet 2. It's the Intel platform drivers for the Atom 2760 straight from Intel. Since I installed that, my Lynx has been running amazingly well. Battery life is much better and the wifi issues are all but gone, though I can't comment on the bluetooth/wifi issues. That was a separate problem. I figured I would post this here because this thread was kept coming up many times on Google in the first page of search results. I figured others might stumble on this and get some use out of it.

The link for the driver package is http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/down...DocID=DS039909
