P1 2nd Gen - Other TrackPoint and Touchpad-Button Options?

Q: P1 2nd Gen - Other TrackPoint and Touchpad-Button Options?

Hey! I'm quite happy with my new P1 2nd Gen, except the pointing devices suck. Lenovo seems to have switched the TrackPoint to ALPS which comes very stiff, choppy and inaccurate. I played around with udev rules and acceleration settings which made it a bit better, but it is still far from the awesome accuracy and smoothness of the W540, my last machine. Same with the three buttons on top of the TrackPad - especially the left one doesn't react reliably when hit on the lower right corner. I have to press a second time every ten clicks or so. This definitely sucks, so my question is: Is anyone aware of other manufacturers/options of especially TrackPoints and TouchPad-buttons for the P1 apart from ALPS? BestMarkus

Hello, I bought a brand new X1 Carbon 20Q model and it seems at even after running all the think vantage updates, there is the Ultranav option missing in the mouse options. I want to configure the touchpad settings individually (e.g. switch primary and secondary buttons only for the touchpad but not for the USB mouse). Also right click by double clicking on the trackpoint is not working at the moment. In short, I miss all the options usually provided in thinkpad models. I tried everything, please help if you can. The drivers listed on the lenovo page seem not to work. I installed the newest touchpad driver, yet in the device manager it still shows the MS driver from 2006... Thank you! 

A:X1 Carbon 20Q Trackpoint and Touchpad Options all missing!

Hello and welcome,
 
My suspicion is that pointing device control has been taken over by Microsoft - "precision touchpad" - in newer ThinkPads.

Hello,I have an issue whith my new X1 Carbon (G7), that my touchpad does not react immediately when I click with the phisical touchpad buttons (ie. the buttons above the touchpad). It is noticable when trying to drag&drop an item, or when trying to use the scrollbar similarly (clicking and dragging). It works well when I use the lower area of the touchpad to "click". For example: I select a file in File Explorer with a click and immediately move my fingers on the touchpad to drag it somewhere else, but it only starts to move after a short moment. It feels like the touchpad does not want to react, but then it suddenly starts to work... I thought of driver update, but Synaptics driver is not available. Maybe it's an issue with the Microsoft drivers?Does anyone else have a similar issue? Thanks

Right now when I use the trackpoint the touchpad is disabled while moving the cursor. The touchpad is also disabled when the trackpoint recalibrates itself. This causes problems because I often let go of the trackpoint to do gestures on the touchpad, and sometimes I then have to wait for the trackpoint to recalibrate until I can do anything. Recalibration can take several seconds so sometimes it's really frustrating.  Is my trackpoint working as it should or am I the only one experiencing recalibration for more than 2 seconds? Is there a known way to enable touchpad and trackpoint at the same time on Windows 10? That would solve my problem since I don't care about the drifting, I just want to be able to use the touchpad while it recalibrates.

I don't know what have triggered it but i haven't been able to make any progress in getting it to work in the last 5 hours. 1. There is no response on the trackpointer, the touchpad or its buttons2.

Bios is newest version N14ET51W (1.29) and i've done a Reset Default Settings5. Both trackpoint and touchpad is enabled in the BIOS6. Running hardware scans using Lenovo Solution Center doesn't yield any errors7. Using TouchPad-Flash Utility - TrackPointDetect yields 20 warnings and 2 errors.8. I've dissambled my laptop touchpad and keyboard connectors and making sure they are firmly connected.9. Is there something i have missed? Anyways. I've made peace with having to replace some parts - nothing lasts forever and i've had my laptop for 4 years now. The million dollar question is though; what to replace?Without knowing the inner workings of the X1 Carbon i can't get my head around how the touchpad an keyboard interacts. On other models its a single component and you replace both keyboard and touchpad together. Do i need to do that on X1 Carbon as well even though its two seperate components?

Good Day!I'm from the Philippines and I bought a refurbished thinkpad p50 from the US at 2016 and I extended its NBD warranty until June 1, 2018. The touchpad and trackpad suddenly stopped working a few weeks ago and it seems that the bios can't recognize them. The wifi reception seems to have also weaken, requiring me to be closer to the wifi source than before. I also tried reinstalling the drivers but it can't still identify the two pointing device. I'm actually planning to ship it to the US this week before my NBD warranty expires, but I don't know anyone from the US right now to avail the NBD service. May I know which address must I send it to, and the proper procedures to avail the repairs?I already spent $170 for the warranty extension last year, and I'll be spending another $100 for the DHL shipping to the US. May I also know if Lenovo will answer the shipping back to my country, since if not, I'll be spending another $100 for it to be shipped back to the Philippines?I also tried calling the service center from the US but I kept on having long calls with no response. Thanks!

Usually I am forced to reboot.A USB mouse will work fine during this freeze. I have tried installing all windows updates, Lenovo updates and even system recovery to a date when I didn't have issues but nothing seems to work. Anyone else have this issue?Its been very frustrating owning this x1, as I am on my second one after the first one died on me.

Hi, changuri
 
I would recommend trying to install the Synaptics base driver and see if that helps your issues. Synaptics is the company that produces the UltraNav driver for Lenovo, so there should not be any loss of functionality, but it tends to fix issues like this in my experience. This driver can be found here. Try downloading and installing that and see if it helps.
 
Best of luck,
Adam

So, during the windows installer, no mouse. I couldn't see the pointer, neither the touchpad or trackpoint worked. I managed through using the keyboard, then once I got to the desktop I installed the "Synaptics ThinkPad UltraNav Driver for Windows 10 (64-bit) - ThinkPad" driver and rebooted. Still not working. I installed the thinkvantage system update, it detects no updates. I installed the service bridge. No updates. I then made a linux live USB that I use to install manjaro on all my laptops, yes everything worked out of the box on my previous x1 carbon. Touchpad doesn't work, xorg doesn't even recognize any touchpad present. Anyone else have this? Any solutions? This is actually my 2nd X1 carbon; the first works well but the mouse buttons are loose so Lenovo promised waived restocking and shipping with the purchase of a new order of equal or greater value; I ordered another one with plans to return the first one, because I really needed to keep it for work while I waited for the new one. The new one is actually flawless in terms of build, mouse buttons are solid, the CMOS battery is not loose and producing a rattling noise as it is in the first one, and the bottom cover doesn't have the clicking noise that so many are afflicted with. Really I'm willing to try anything to fix the touchpad.

Hello keviinf,modify the tp4table.dat file is the one way, updating the ultra nav drivers could help also.Please reboot your system after editing the tp4table.dat file.Otherwise it won´t work.I did some tweaks on my both systems too. Like enabling horizontal scrolling in Firefox.

Hi! I have an E460 laptop, on which I'm dual booting Windows 10 Pro and Manjaro Linux (basically Arch Linux) with Linux kernel 4.5.2. Having the same problem that people discuss in the E460 Keys repeating when pressed for 3 seconds thread, I have been bumping my bios to 1.13, 1.16, and yesterday, to bios 1.17, to see if the problem had been resolved. With the 1.17 bios update, my touchpad and trackpoint stopped working in Linux (In Windows they work fine). They do not even show up in /dev/input, and there is no mention of either of them in dmesg, journalctl, /var/log/Xorg.0.log, or anywhere. The touchpad and stick worked fine in bios 1.13 and 1.16, so I'm thinking there is some regression in 1.17. Is anyone else experiencing this? Can Lenovo confirm whether there is a problem?

A:Touchpad and Trackpoint buttons not working

Hi whitehouse87,
  Welcome to Lenovo Community! And happy to have you again.
 
As I understand that you are facing issue with Touchpad & Trackpoint buttons are not working in T410.
You have tried almost everything & I don't think so its related to software or drivers. You can check without drivers once whether clicks are working or not. Else its a hardware issue for sure
 
I hope the above information helped you.
Please feel free to post in Lenovo Community Forums if you have any further queries!

Tried installing Synaptics drivers - it said there was no device for update.

I have a Toshiba Satellite L4550-S5976 running under Windows 7. When I start it up (and if I catch it at the right time), the touchpad buttons work fine for a few minutes. After the machine completely boots, the touchpad button problems start - the left button performs as the right button and the right button does nothing.

On a lark, I plugged in a USB mouse and rebooted. When I do that, the mouse works fine AND the touchpad buttons work properly. Carrying around a mouse isn't always convenient so I'd like to have the machine work as expected.

I tried updating the touchpad drivers - that did not fix the problem. I even reinstalled Windows 7 on the machine - that did not fix the problem either.

Any ideas what I could do next to fix this problem?

Thanks, Brian

As in topic. I've read something about upgrading X240 touchpad with one from X250 with buttons(bezel also, because mine was broken) after strong battle went well, I was happy owner of proper touchpad in my laptop. First start, buttons are working but trackpoint not. First thought - drivers. I went to System Update, downloaded new Synaptics driver, upgraded BIOS, changed nothing. Synaptics software stopped detecting trackpoint so I've removed all of their drivers, started again, still nothing. Next idea - maybe I've made a mistake when I was connecting keyboard and touchpad to motherboard. Disassembled, everything fine, I've tried to clean clear connectors, assembled, another start - nothing changed. So new drivers from SU again, reboot, and suprise - trackpoint was still dead and, to be worse, new drivers wasn't detecting again. Disassembly again, rechecked everything, still nothing. Old drivers found on some website about this upgrade - they weren't working at all, in mouse settings they crash every time I've changed to UltraNav tab. Drivers deleted, hardware check again, new drivers another time, newer BIOS and this thing isn't still working. I'm insanely mad, I've put a lot of hours trying to fix this and I have completely no idea what can be wrong. Do you have any idea what can I do now? Is there anything? Or maybe it's hardware failure and I need to install old touchpad to make this working again? Trackpoint buttons are working but only as single click, there is no way t... Read more

I have a very annoying problem with my T460p: When suspending the laptop and turning it on again, the trackpad and touchpad devices stop working entirely (no response at all). The problem cannot be fixed by rebooting the machine and can only be resolved by completely powering down the laptop, removing the battery and restarting it afterwards. Symptoms: * During  boot, a message "PS/2 mouse not detected" shows up.* The Windows device manager shows the synaptics touchpad as not functioning.* The problem occurs both under Windows and Linux (Ubuntu 16.04) I am running the latest BIOS version and have updated all drivers on the machine. I have also checked all BIOS settings. Lenovo already replaced the laptop twice, but the problem persists, hence I conclude that it's either a problem in all of the synaptics components or related to something else. I have found many similar bug reports in this forum and elsewhere, not only for the T460p but also other models like the T440 series, hence this is not an isolated case. Please bring this problem to the attention of the support staff, as this is something that is completely unacceptable for a laptop in this price range (especially since everything else is working perfectly). The laptop has the following configuration btw: * i7 6600HQ processor* 20 GB Ram (4 GB on-board + 16 GB extra RAM)* 2 TB HDD + 512 GB SSD via M.2 slot* Otherwise standard configuration Thanks for your help!

I have a Thinkpad T440S and have a problem that many have reported. The trackpoint and touchpad initially work upon bootup but then stop working after a few minutes.I believe I've tried everything (uninstall/reinstall drivers, replace keyboard, replace hard drive and do a complete reinstall of all software, update everything, etc etc etc). Nothing works and the only reason I can still use my computer is that a wireless mouse will work. It's time to get a new computer. I've bought Thinkpads for more than a decade but I still see this problem being reported for the T470 so Lenovo can't or won't bother to fix this. Any suggestions for a different brand and model? I do like the trackpoint so does that mean Dell is my only alternative?

I've noticed that the touchpad is unresponsive for a short period of time (~0.3s) after trackpoint button clicks (or joystick use) on my latest X1 Carbon. This makes it a pain to use the touchpad with the physical trackpoint buttons, which I would do regularly (e.g. for drag&drop). The behavior can be observed both under Windows and Linux (tested with Ubuntu 19.10), however, not in the BIOS when using the graphical interface. Is this a known issue? Can anything be done about it?

After using the ThinkPad Yoga 260 for about two weeks, both the trackpoint and touchpad are now unresponsive. I've tried updating the drivers, rolling back the drivers and uninstalling the drivers and installing the latest one. None of it works. I managed to get it working once with a BIOS update but as soon as I put it in sleep mode, both became unresponsive again. Under Mouse Porperties the TouchPad option is grayed out and the TrackPoint option is sometimes grayed out and sometimes not. Regardless, it is completely unresponsive when enabled and disabled.

Hey there! Just today, a rather big problem came up on my T430: The Synaptics Ultranav Driver seems to have stopped working.Keyboard is still working fine, and touchpad also works after uninstalling Synaptics Ultranav. Trackpoint never works and Touchpad stops working as soon as Windows (automatically) reinstalls Synaptics Ultranav. Both are enabled in BIOS. I've tried pretty much anything, from reinstlaling Synaptics drivers (multiple times) to updating BIOS. I'm at a loss here.I'm absolutely positive that this is a problem on Synaptics' side. This is what their controls panel looks like:As you see, touchpad and trackpoint are greyed out. Again, they're enabled in BIOS and I can rule out any hardware-side problem. Any kind of help would be highly appreciated.

Up until the most recent windows 10 home Automatic update (version 1709), I've been able to use the mouse properites settings to turn off the touchpad to avoid accidental clicks and mouse movement, and instead use the trackpoint only.  I can select to still use "gestures" to scroll, zoom, etc, and use the touchpad to right and left click. Since the update, the left and right click buttons are unresponsive, unless I use the mouse properties to fully enable the touchpad. This seems like a software glitch.  When I downloaded and tried to reinstall the drivers from lenovo, the installation package tells me it can't find a synaptics device.  Anyone else run into this?Thanks.

Hi guys, i´ve a problem, buy a t430 used a few di ays ago, so i reinstalled W10 then installed all drivers, i gone in the bios and checked than Trackpoint and Touchpad option were enabled. Everything was fine but the trackpoint option in mouse options was disabled. So i upgraded the bios (and i reinstalled drivers), but nothing, migrated the system to Uefi from Legacy (with W10 utilitie) and reinstalled the drivers, but nothing.If i desactivate touchpad option in the Bios the trackpoint starts to works. (but obiously the touchpad doesn´t work).Idk what else to do, i really would like to use the two options at the same time.

Just got my T480 and I love everything about it except for the touchpad and trackpoint are awful and lacking options. If one of my fingers is touching the trackpoint, sometimes when I double click using the left side touchpad button, unless i do it super slowly, it wont register.If one of my fingers is touching the trackpoint, probably half of the time when I single click with the bottom left 'button' it will register as a double click. Sometimes a single click will register as a triple click; sometimes a double click will register as a triple click.If one of my fingers is touching the trackpoint, for the 'buttons' under the touchpad, there is a long delay before the action registers on the screen. A lot of the time it wont register at all.Sometimes when I push in the touchpad on the bottom (*not* the bottom right) it will still register as a right click. Sometimes pushing in on the left side will register as a right button press. This gets even more screwed up if im touching the trackpoint.I use firefox gestures and to activate you use the right mouse button. If one of my fingers is touching the trackpoint, when I  use the bottom right button to do this, it will often act as if Ive done a right click when i let go of the button.If im moving the trackpoint and press the left side of the touchpad to select multiple things, it wont work (it will very briefly open the selection rectangle and close it). I have to first click down the left side of the touchpad, with abso... Read more

Hello everyone, first post on here! Got a X1 Extreme, Maxed out the options, soon as I got it I ran windows update and the lenovo updates. The problem I am having is the mouse will freeze randomly, at first it was doing it after 10-15 minutes, now it takes a while for it tohappen. I only use Trackpoint, but at first it disabled the trackpoint and touchpad, but a physical Bluetooth mouse would still work and touch screen and keyboard would work. Now it seems last time The Bluetooth mouse also didn't work, but keyboard and Touch Screen did. Very ODD Behavior, I uninstalled and reinstalled the Drivers, I also turned off REALTEK Audio which I heard is a issue and reinstalled it. I also Installed all the touchpad, ultranav etc apps from support.lenovo website just to mess with the settings. Once I noticed when the trackpoint stopped working, it was actually disabled on the system somehow. Anyways I would love to fix this issue on my own because I bet Tech Support wont know about this issue and throw me in circles. I feel as though this wouldnt be happening on a Stock Brand new Laptop, so it must be one of the Windows Updates messing with it. Far as Specs it is a i7-8850h, 64mb Ram, 1 TB ssd, 4k Screen, Lets see if someone can help me =)

After using the ThinkPad Yoga 260 for about two weeks, both the trackpoint and touchpad are now unresponsive. I've tried updating the drivers, rolling back the drivers and uninstalling the drivers and installing the latest one. None of it works. I managed to get it working once with a BIOS update but as soon as I put it in sleep mode, both became unresponsive again. Under Mouse Porperties the TouchPad option is grayed out and the TrackPoint option is sometimes grayed out and sometimes not. Regardless, it is completely unresponsive when enabled and disabled.

After switching to tablet mode in Windows 10, the touchpad and trackpoint are both disabled. I tried disabling and re-enabling it in the BIOS, no effect. Tried updating to the latest ELAN driver, no luck... in fact, there's no option for enabling / disabling the touchpad in the dialog box, and the ELAN dialog box is just a big blank. Tried uninstalling and reinstalling all Lenovo drivers; no luck. I saw some suggestions that I should disable some sort of Intel sensors in the BIOS, but I couldn't find those settings.  Suggestions?

Hi, After dropping my laptop, both touchpad and trackpont have stopped working along with buttons on touchpad. I am wondering if I need to replace keyboard and touchpad or should I have a look at something first before doing this. I've checked Hardware maintenance manual and couldn't find any related information regarding this.

Hello, I'm new here and I was hoping that someone could help me with my laptop.I have a IBM Lenovo T410, that was working very well with Windows 7 Professional, including the Touchpad and Trackpoint. Meanwhile, the hard drive got broke down and I decided to replace him with a SSD and upgraded SO to Windows 10, and then the problems became with Touchpad and Trackpoint. I already installed all the drives that I have found on Internet and on Lenovo forums and support pages but none works. Every time that I go to Control Panel > Mouse I get an error that tells me that there is a problem with Synaptics device, telling me to uninstall and reboot. Meanwhile, I installed windows 8.1 Pro, guessing that it could have some incompatibility with Windows 10, but the problem remains the same. Can anyone help me with this? How can I solve the problem? Where can I find the right drivers for my device?Thank you very much!
