Lenovo T470 20HD TrackPoint (UltraNav) buttons not behaving correctly

Q: Lenovo T470 20HD TrackPoint (UltraNav) buttons not behaving correctly

Hi all, I'm running into any issue with my Lenovo T470 20HD where the 3 Trackpoint buttons (Left, Middle, Right) are all performing the same action (Scroll and Right-Click). As one can imagine, this is very frustrating! I simply want the Left button to function like a left-click and the Right to function like a right-click; normal behavior. The picture below shows the buttons I am referring to: I have checked my UltraNav settings under the mouse properties, however I only have 2 options: Right-Click and Scroll. I have tried uninstalling and removing the driver. Reinstalling from Lenovo's website, with no luck. I have also update the BIOS to the latest version. I tried disabling and re-enabling TrackPoint in the BIOS with no luck. I am running the latest version of Windows: Any help would be apprecaited!

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

Hi, I?m not using trackpoint but I just noticed that both physical trackpoint buttons (those above the trackpad) act as ?right-click?. The trackpad works fine (I mean both left and right are ok on the trackpad). I tried to set up fresh Windows 10 and uninstall mouse drivers, after that install UltraNav from Lenovo page, but it is still like that, both are ?right-click?. Thanks in advance for any suggestions. Regards

Good Morning. I have an issue with a T570 laptop's trackpoint BUTTONS. Machine is running Windows 7 Pro. When the "generic" Microsoft Compatible PS2 driver is installed, the Trackpoint and 3 Buttons work with no issues, however you lose all gestures on the touchpad. When any version of the Synaptics driver I can get my hands on is installed, the Trackpoint continues to work, however the 3 buttons die. The trackpoint check box in the UltraNav settings tab is checked. If I uncheck, the trackpoint stops working (as would be expected). Checking it again allows the Trackpoint to work but the buttons remain dead. Without being too long winded I do want to throw out there that this laptop is in an Enterprise environement and was imaged using a build from T560.If the Windows 7 OS that came from the factory is left on the machine, the Trackpoint buttons function with no issue.Note that the driver versions of both the MS Compatible PS2 driver and the Synaptics driver between the Factory image and the Enterprise image are the same. I'm sure the solution is buried in the registry somewhere, just not sure what to change or delete entirely to get the buttons reenabled. Any assistance is greatly appreciated. Thank you!

After installing the latest Win10 and Lenovo updates (about 2 weeks ago) on my T440s the trackpoint buttons no longer work. They worked prior to the updates. I have made sure that trackpoint is enabled in BIOS, I have installed and reinstalled the lastest driver and Ultranav software. But nothing seems to fix the problem.  I tried to go back to prev driver, but unforunately when I reinstalled the driver it over wrote the previous driver that did work.  Interestingly the screen on the new UltraNav app does not reflect the proper button placement for my T440s. I have looked on the internet for about a week for solutions, and I've tried everything that seemed logical... nothing has solved the problem. Thanks for any help...

I have an IBM T40 laptop. I have been having problems with the mouse properties. I opened up the advanced properties for the mouse and selected the UltraNav tab. I keep selecting the "Standard Scroll" option but it never stays. It keeps doing the smooth scrolling. For some reason, after my laptop has been on for a while, I can get the standard scroll option to stay. But then after a while longer it reverts back by itself. It usually happens when something disrupts my wireless internet connection. I have downloaded all the latest drivers that I could find from the IBM website. What is messing this up?

My computer had restarted from an update and now the only things that work are trackpoint and trackpad pointing, and trackpoint scrolling (surprisingly). trackpoint and trackpad clicks (tap or button) don't work, trackpad scroll and other gestures don't work. I thought it might have been a driver issue because at the time I was using windows enhanced trackpad driver but after switching in between the enhanced driver and the synaptics drivers from the the x260 driver page, neither seemed to fix anything. The trackpoint and trackpad work fine on a usb linux distro so it we know its not a hardware issue. The after start up, clicks work once but appear to behave as a holding down right click, after that it just doesnt work anymore. Right now, I'm just using a mouse. Any ideas?

I'm using the ultranav middle button to scroll (I live for this feature which is why I've been buying thinkpads since time immemorial) However, on the t460, scolling with the middle button/nubbin is painfully slow in Word 2007, and Adobe Acrobat/Reader is a nightmare. In Word its just slow and you have to use a lot of pressure on the nubbin (there appears to be no setting to change this). In Acrobat, it's agonizingly slow (in both Reader and Pro) and will "stick" on if you try to go to fast and just scrolling for multiple seconds after you release the button.  Stragely, the trackpad scrolling works fine in Word, though it is still bad in Acrobat.  In addition, the middle button scrolling will frequently slip and stop scrolling, sending the pointer to the bottom of the page.  Nubbin/middle button scrolling works (oddly) extremely well in Microsoft Edge... Please help! Middle button scrollig with the nubbin is the best feature on these machines.  Using: T460 Windows 10 64-bit with the latest drivers.

I have been chasing threads trying to find solutions to this.  Found a clue, was directed to the power management driver thread as a possible solution, was told it was not as I was on Windows 10 and was told to start a new thread.  So here it is.Very frustrating as none of my other brands of laptops have issues wth actual buttons working after an update....however Lenovos do.  Here is the situation that occurred after most likely a Windows 10 update. However I cannot be sure it was not a Lenovo update or a Lenovo update hidden in a windows 10 udpate.  All I know is my volume buttons don't work correctly now.  Some specifics.... Holding the function key and hitting escape toggles the fn behaviour.However the light on the mute button never goes off although it does mute and Un mute the volume. It also brings up the onscreen volume display which you can touch and change volume crudely.However while the mute button toggles muting the volume....Although the light stays on....the volume up and down buttons also mute and unmute vs. raising and lowering volume!!!I saw the comment that in windows 10 these buttons are controlled by windows. However not sure why only lenovo has issues with their functions keys after oem or Windows updates.Thanks for any help.BJBBJB

I just received my ThinkPad X1 Extreme and noticed that the trackpoint buttons (above the touchpad) misfire, has anyone noticed the same behavior? Specifically, the button has a "click" feel to it, however half the time the button doesn't register the click. I have to push the button harder for the click to register. This happens for both left and right click. I find this very distracting as I use the same exact bluetooth keyboard on my desktop and I do not have this problem, if i feel a click, the buttons fire. Being I'm so used to this keyboard and I've used lenovo laptops before, this is a significant problem! -Paul

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!

I got my X1 Extreme sealed from my local distributors and I started it, applied all Windows updates and installed everything in Lenovo System UpdateBut the TrackPoint and its left/right mouse buttons don't work at all. I also don't have any options for customizing trackpoint or trackpad beyond windows' basic onesI noticed there are two versions of Symantec UltraNav - one for Windows 10 1803 and one for older versions.I installed the older version, and now I have the trackpoint/trackpad options, but trackpoint is grayed out, while trackpad can be edited. Reinstalling the 1803 (latest Win) drivers again causes the options for trackpoint/pad to disappearI checked bios and tried disabling and enabling all 4 combinations of trackpoint/trackpad, but it did not help.Any ideas what that might be? Since latest Synaptec UltraNav drivers don't display additional options in Mouse Options, I guess it's because they don't install properly (trying to manually click the two apps in C:\Drivers\UltraNav\XXX gives me an error -"Either you need a new certificate installed for this app package, or you need a new app package with trusted certificates."and it fails to install - though the official installer says it installed correctly).So it points to the latest X1 Extreme Symantec drivers being faulty

The TrackPoint buttons on my A485 are behaving oddly. The Left button is acting as a simultaneous left+right click (clicking opens up context menu, but I'm still able to drag windows around, etc.). Right and Middle buttons are not functional at all. It seems to be a hardware issue as it persists across Windows 10 and Linux (I've tested in Arch and Ubuntu). Are there any solutions for this, or should I send it in for warranty?

Hi there, a buddy of mine got a ibm r52 laptop recently from a relative that sat for a few months. anyways, it was given to him and it worked great for about a week then he noticed issues with the keyboard, trackpoint, scroll pad and buttons not working sometimes after boot.
And when they dont work...they dont work. Its not a on and off thing...its either or.

So he has me looking at it...

I dont think its a big issue b/c the keyboard will ALWAYS work when i want to go into the BIOS. I loaded up a Acronis TI boot disk and the keyboard and trackpoint worked fine...but then i tried it again and only the keyboard worked and no trackpoint or pad.

So far i have tried updating the BIOS and embedded controller to the latest with no luck.
Ive also tried a quick fresh install....no luck...still either on or off.

However, if i plug my usb wireless mouse in the mouse cursor works fine...always...

So i guess my next step is to open her up, but im waiting to hear back on any suggestions first....and i got to find a service manual for it...
Thanks for reading.

Lenovo, I've just upgraded my Yoga 260 to a brand new Yoga X380, which is the most expensive Lenovo computer I've ever purchased since this year's crop of computers is fantastically expensive for some reason.  I really didn't mind spending great money on a ThinkPad though, since it is supposed to be an excellent computer.  I've purchased about 16 of them personally since my first ThinkPad 600E.  However... I'm beside myself with a fundamental flaw in this latest computer: The keyboard and TrackPoint buttons are MUSHY.  That is, the same terrible keyboard and mouse action that you'd get on a Dell or something.  You can feel the rubber movement underneath it.  THIS IS NOT A THINKPAD KEYBOARD.   The trackpoint buttons are mushy garbage, you can't even tell when it is "clicked" or not, they're just soft nothingness. I'm incredibly disappointed.  Can I send this back to you and have you put a REAL THINKPAD KEYBOARD in it?  One that has firm key response?  One that lives up to the ThinkPad name?  I can't stand using this computer with this terrible keyboard.

Follow up to my own posting, it looks like there are Chicony and Sunrex keyboard and mouse FRUs for this computer. Is one of these keyboards the "real" ThinkPad quality I'm used to and the other less so? If so, can I get these parts exchanged?

Hi everyone,my X1 Carbon 5th gen originally had a loose middle trackpoint button. After developing problems with the left mouse button - it only recognized every second click - I replaced the keyboard bezel.The first replacement had a loose left trackpoint button and some problems with the keyboard. The second replacement also had a loose left trackpoint button and every time I pressed the power button I heard a cracking sound coming from the right corner. The third replacement doesn't show this cracking sound but it also suffers from a loose left mouse button. All of them were made by Chicony (german keyboard layout).This leads me to the question:Does any of you have the same problem with his / her device?Please comment which keyboard you have (manufacturer and layout) and if your device suffers from the same problem or not.Thanks For my part, I'm pretty disappointed by Lenovo's quality control...--resonance

Hi. After using ThinkPads for a couple of years now I purchased the Carbon 7th gen, and my experience with combining the trackpad for movement of the curser and the physical buttons for the trackpoint has allways been my perfered way to operate. When using the combination on my new Carbon 7th gen I am having some very frustrating sticking of the curser. After some reading around the web I have been thinking that it may be the palm-check functionality that inhibits the trackpad for halv a second. And it is really irritating. I can not seem to find the palm-check function, and I have not been able to fully remove all drivers for the trackpad to reinstall from scratch. The error does not appear in the BIOS where the mouse works fine, so it is not a hardware issue. What can I do?

I own a Thinkpad T470s laptop, and I'm having problems with the physical mouse buttons on top of the Trackpad being disabled for a second whenever a key is pressed. This appears to be a feature intended to prevent unintended mouse clicks on the Trackpad during typing, but for some reason, it also affects the buttons which are never accidentally pressed. The feature prevents me from playing many games without an external mouse and is also annoying when I'm coding or editing a document as I have to wait a second every time I want to click immediately after typing. I've tried going into the mouse settings -> additional mouse options -> ThinkPad -> TouchPad -> Advanced settings and dragging the Palm Check Threshold all the way to the minimum, but this appears to have no effect. I've also tried editing various parts of the registry with no luck and updating my drivers.

Hello, I updated my OS to Windows 10. Everything works perfectly except of trackpoint/touchpad. The first issue is really a critical one - trackpoint buttons are practically useless. Single button click causes the mouse click event multiple times - for example opens 6 new cards in a web browser instead of one. I've found another post here describing in detail exactly the same problem but the author didn't get any response, neither from HP nor the community: http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Hardware-and-Upgrade-Questions/HP-Elitebook-8570w-built-in-mou... The driver delivered with Windows (which is also listed as compatible with Windows 10 on HP's 8570w support site http://h20564.www2.hp.com/hpsc/swd/public/detail?sp4ts.oid=5257503&swItemId=ob_152050_1&swEnvOid=419... version 19.0.12.0, causes the problems I mentioned earlier.The updated one from Synaptics website (19.0.19.1) additionaly prevents the OS from detecting the middle button... Additionally, the only gestures I can use are the basic ones - no advanced 3- or 4-finger ones (please don't tell me that the hardware is incompatible because similar gestures worked on Windows 8.1 I used earlier). I have a dual boot with Win10 and Linux and on Linux everything works flawlessly, so it's definitely not a hardware problem What should I do to make my touchpad and trackpoint fully functional?

Could someone from Lenovo let the forum know if it will be possible to replace the W540 Trackpad / Bezel / Keyboard assembly with the new one from the W541 which has integrated physical Trackpoint buttons.  This would make a very big difference to me and I suspect a lot of other W540 owners who use the Trackpoint. I am the current owner of 5 Thinkpads and have been a loyal customer since the 600 series. The increased pressure necessary to generate a less reliable click on the Trackpad has greatly exacerbated a problem with the top joint of my right thumb - I have had to retrain myself to use my left thumb to do all clcking.  The problem was nowhere near as bad on the old Trackpoint buttons - where I could use them with my right thumb for several hours with no symptoms, I can now manage only minutes. 

A:Replace W540 Keyboard with W541 Trackpoint Buttons

Add me to the list of W540 that wish to have a real workstation with original IBM style trackpad WITH BUTTONS! Similarly, we need to somehow add an LED to indicate HD I/O's. Maybe integrate this into the new PROPER trackpad. Example: Right now I'm copying off my NAS, 2.5 gig of PDF files catalogued by Calibre. The transfer has been running over 2 hours and only 35% done, and I have NO IDEA if data is transferring when the screen blanks out.  Thankfully, Western Digital's external Passport drive has an LED that flashes with the I/O, and this is the ONLY indicator that tells me the NAS data flowing and being backed up to the USB drive. Crypting does slow the data. Now, I realize that what I'm doing is not the best - using my WiFi connect for the transfer and USB 3.0 -, which is slow on this 'marketing promoted' Workstation. Hopefully I stuck it in the right port, as none are color blue identified, left front. ....  I'm blue <g>.

When moving the mouser cursor with the trackpad, pressing or releasing any of the three TrackPoint buttons will randomly makes the trackpad unresponsive 50% of the time. The cursor will eventually resume movement if you keep moving your finger. This makes clicking and dragging fail most of the time. This does NOT apply to:1. Moving the cursor with the trackpad and pressing the lower-left or lower-right trackpad buttons instead of the trackpoint buttons.2. Moving the cursor with the trackpoint nub and pressing the trackpad or trackpoint buttons.To reieterate the problem is exclusively when using the trackpoint buttons WHILE dragging on the trackpad. I'm using Windows 10 Pro with the latest Synaptics firmware installed (n2hgc06w.exe installed firmware pr3013337-tm-p3467-010.img) and the latest Elan driver installed (n2hg404w.exe). This is on a brand new X1 Carbon Gen 7 I received yesterday (model 20R1S04100) with all BIOS updates applied. This *exact* same behavior happens with Ubuntu 19.10 so clearly it is not a Windows 10 or Windows driver issue, but a firmware one.Are there any solutions? It really does make the trackpad unusable...

I am running MS Windows XP Home Edition 2002 Service Pack 3. Browser is Firefox 4.0.1 with Ad Blocker Plus and NoScript. All of those are up to date.
Over the last few days I have been having issues with certain web pages not loading correctly or looking as they should. I know that NoScript can keep certain web pages from loading the way they should, but last night I went to Yahoo and to Games and clicked on a certain game link and it kept taking me to Yahoo Mail and another game link kept reloading. The browser has been especially slow lately and I just want to make sure that I do not have a rootkit or other nasty virus that is potentially stealing my information.

Spyware and antivrus ran: MBAM-updated and ran yesterday-nothing found; McAfee updated and ran-nothing found; Spywareblaster, updated and all items are protected; SuperAntiSpyware-update and found a few cookies; AdAware updated and ran-found some items in the registry keys.

Today there was an alert from WinPatrol that the HOST was changed and I denied the change. I cannot find the alert but will keep looking for it. If I need to run something else, please let me know Safe Mode or Regular. Thank you!

I'm using Windows 7.  I've developed an application in LabVIEW which uses adb shell. The application is installed on PC using the installer generated
by LabVIEW. My Program is installed in C:\Program Files(x86)\AppFolder and a short cut menu is created in start menu/programs after installation. When I click on my application icon in start menu/programs it is started but ADB shell is not loaded properly.
But When I start the application from C:\Program Files(x86)\AppFolder, adb shell is loaded properly and application works correctly. Any pointer in this regard will be helpful
