T430S Mouse and touch pad issue

Q: T430S Mouse and touch pad issue

Recently I have been gifted with a T430S Thinkpad on which I made a fresh installation of Windows 7 Home. From time to time the mouse has a strange behavior : it operates fine except to scroll in dropdown lists. I have to use the keybord to do that an select an item. When it happens the touch pad doesn't work anymore. Switching with an other mouse doesn't solve the problem. I have to stop and restart the laptop to recover the normal behavior of the mouse. Installing last drivers from Lenovo download center had no effect. It seems other users encountered a similar issue. Some of them got rid of it after a BIOS upgrade. Infortunately I didn't find any BIOS to download. The only files avalaibable are just utilities to install a new BIOS. Mine is 2.05 dated 12/11/2012. So my question is where to get a more recent BIOS and do you think an update will fix the issue. Thanking you in advance

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.)

Hopefully someone can help me with this, because I'm not sure what to do with it anymore.

This started last week when I was having an issue with Google Chrome. It would open and close tabs when I clicked on them, so I did a virus scan and removed it and everything was fine. Well, the virus came back, so I did the same thing, but it won't go away, and it's not effecting my mouse. Whenever I try to click and drag, it stops/sticks, and it does the same thing with my mouse pad, so I know it's not a low battery on my mouse. I have a Logitech M305 mouse, and my laptop is an Asus with Windows 7 64 bit and Nvidia GeForce G210M.

I hope someone can help me with this issue, because it's starting to drive me crazy! Thanks!

So I've been having issues with my touch screen on the Yoga C930 Glass. Whenever I write or draw in sketchpad using the touch screen using either my pen or my hand something weird happens. Occasionally in the middle of writing, something similar to a mouse click and hold happens. My hand is no where near the touchpad and I need to click using the touchpad to make the hold go away. When I move the mouse when this issue occurs, the lines drawn can't be erased unless I close out of the sketchpad.

Hi
My MS Arc Touch Mouse stopped working. A friend of mine who has the same mouse had lost his mouse's nanoreceiver and he had given his (almost new) mouse to me couple of years back (kept without batteries).
Now I'm left with one Arc Touch Mouse and one nanoreceiver v1.0. Is there any way I can pair the two? I tried to install Intellipoint and do something with it, but without luck. I'm using a Windows 10 laptop.
Thanks

Hi, I encounter the following issues with my Thinkpad T430s:- sometimes the mouse pointer starts moving on its on, always towards the same direction and always at the same speed. Rebooting temporarily resolves the issue until it occurs again. Reducing the sensitivity in the driver software does not have any impact. Pressing the trackpoint and letting go does nothing to stop it. - the left mouse button acts like a weird combination of a left click + some function that brings up context menus, if available (e.g. on desktop). This happens using the trackpoint, touchpad and sometimes even when using an external mouse. - Right mouse button does not function at all. No matter what function is assigned to it in the driver software, it does not work. External mouse works. All this ONLY happens if the trackpoint is ENABLED in BIOS. If I disabled the trackpoint in the BIOS, touchpad and all mouse buttons work fine. I tried Windows 10 and Windows 7. The problems occur under both operating systems using different driver software. Therefore, I do believe this to be a hardware issue. Anyone has experienced this issues and knows a good way to fix it? Thanks in advance!

Ok, How do I get this T430s to recognise ONLY the nVidia graphics? I have it set to nVidia only in the BIOS, However, this thing INSISTS on using the pathetic HD4000 graphics when trying to play a game. This was easy to do for the T420. Why wont this work for the T430s? What I've done:Install ONLY the nVidia graphics drivers.... I still wants to use the "generic" VGA driver for everything.It forces me to use the nVidia panel to list games for use with the nVidia graphics. This doesn't always work. Is there a fix for this nightmare?

Sorry I can't answer your question, but this post piqued my interest. I use the Logitech 620 touch mouse on a Windows 7 box at work. I find a little touchy and has to tweaked.

 As this is my first post,  Hello all! I'm a longtime Thinkpad user, appreciating my previous T60 and T400 for their repairability and durability.  I've just bought a used thinkpad t430s, and I bought a battery for it as it didn't come with one. My issue is, the battery worked fine the first couple times I used it, but now it drains instantly if I unplug from the wall. After I restart the machine, the battery says 0% (charging), and after a short while (10+ minutes) returns to claiming fully charged (100%). So far, I have updated the bios, installed the lenovo power management software, installed the lenovo power management driver, tried removing the microsoft acpi driver without the battery in, then turning off and trying to start on battery  (no luck turns off immediately as well, critical low battery error). I also did this thing someone recommended for battery trouble where you shut down the computer and remove the power sources, then hold down the power button for a minute. The battery health is good, it has had three charge cycles, and this number isn't going up with my little drop downs to 0% and back up to 100% whenever I unplug the machine. I would like help in figuring out if this is a problem with the battery, hardware, or software of the computer. I am running windows 7 pro 64 SP1. i7-3520M @2.9ghz. Thanks in advance!  Ryan

Also, as your OS is win7 and I hope Lenovo Power Manager application is installed, what are the values of the second half of the battery parameters (manufacturer name and followed) PM shows in the Battery tab?

So the Internet on my T430s recently stopped working, and every time I try to troubleshoot I'm told to turn on wireless capability using my wireless switch, which is definitely in the on position. (I've even tried turning it to the off position just in case I'm really stupid and have them mixed up, but no Internet there either.) What I've done so far: 1) Fn+F5 gives me the message "The hardware wireless radio switch must be in the on position to use the wireless radios," which is unhelpful since it's in the on position. 2) Going into Device Manager and checking Network Adapters tells me that I have 4 adapters, and the Properties menu for all 4 says that "This device is working properly." I'm not sure which one is being used for my main connection, but all the ones listed say they're working. 3) I did some Googling and found some random sources that said you could use BIOS to override the hardware switch and turn wireless on. Wasn't able to find anything, so I'm wondering whether that doesn't apply for the T430s. Not super familiar with BIOS so I might be using it totally wrong. 4) I opened the computer up to take a look at the wireless radio switch. Didn't see anything clearly wrong with it, but I doubt I'd be able to detect a visible problem even if one were present.  So yeah, I'd appreciate if someone could help me with the issue. I'd prefer to solve it on the software side of things, so if someone could tell me a way to override the hardw... Read more

I have  bought Lenovo T430s laptop recently. The main problem is that it came win Ubuntu OS. I formated all the partition data and tried to install Windows 7. There was a "A required CD/DVD drive driver is missing" issue, where a windows prompts asking me to point the directory where to load that driver. It's on that step, where I should select where to install the drive, so I tought it was the HDD drivers. I tried with UEFI/Legacy tricks such as forcing my BIOS to use UEFI only or LEGACY only. I also tried to change the HDD options from AHCI to Compatability and many variations. Well at first time, i tried with putting the chipset drivers to usb disk and point the driver then uncheck the "Hide drivers that are not compatible with my computer" and tried to force it use my drivers. Tried with different drivers and every time I got stuck to the same problem. Then I tried with Windows 8 and Windows 10, It just installed without problem. Later I had issue with my Cooling Fan. It stoped working, So i returned my laptop to the shop, where I bought the laptop. They said that they sent it to a service and the service changed the HDD and the motherboard. The HDD was Seagate 320GB, now it is HITACHI 320GB. The motherboard is changed, because previous motherboard had Compatibility options, that was suited for windows 8, now it's gone (may be old BIOS chip/software or newer, I dont' know, my BIOS version is 2.7). So after I got my laptop back (repaired) I got it with new H...

A:T430s Windows 7 Installation Issue

Hi,
 
You need to add the USB 3.0 drivers to the WIndows 7 installation media.  There are several threads on this topic here on the forums.  It can be done manually (a real pain...) or with one of several OEM tools.
 
Here's the Intel one:  https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/25476/Windows-7-USB-3-0-Creator-Utility
 
You may also need to make the flash drive UEFI-bootable if that's you preferred installation mode.  That involves some file manipulation, but not a complete rebuild of the media.

I've had my t430s for almost a year now and have been basically happy with it/no issues thus far.However, this morning I went to boot it up and it's completely unresponsive - no lights when plugged into A/C, no fan whir, nothing.  I've already tried the 30 sec power drain trick, verified the charger works, used an alternate lenovo charger(from a t430),removed the battery, both RAM cards, SSD, CMOS and attempted to identify the issue using the various steps recommended in the user guide, but to no avail.I suspect this to be a MB issue or possibly power socket related.  Alas the laptops factory warranty expired in June as it was purchased secondhand(and registered by me after purchase).  Any and all suggestions would be appreciated.

A:T430s won't power on - possible motherboard issue?

Well, I have replaced quite a few power jacks on T420s/T430s machines, but if that were the problem, you would have gotten low-battery warnings ahead of time.  When you disconnected the CMOS battery, did you let it sit a few seconds before plugging it back in?  I always let it sit for 5 seconds and then I press the power button 2 or 3 times before putting it back.  This drains all the capacitors.  (I assume you know that the main battery also needs to be out and the machine unplugged.)

A:touch mat not woring with touch only can use mouse

Hi @frostygirl13, and thank you for your post.Welcome to the HP Support Forums! It is a great place to find the help you need, from other users, HP experts and other support personnel. My understanding of your post is that you are dealing with two issues, one, the projector lamp is on, when you expect it to be off, and two, the touch mat is not working for you. I am happy to give you a hand with this. For the first issue with the projector, I found the following post, with suggestions from forum experts @DavidPK and @WyreNut:  Sprout Projector.  This may be difficult to do based on your second issue. For the second issue with the touch mat, I would first make sure that you have all of your drivers up to date, and make sure you have the latest update for Sprout Workspace installed. You can use the HP Support Assistant, to check for updates. Please let me know how that works for you, and if it does resolve your issue, please mark this post as a solution. Kudos would also be appreciated.

Hi ProcuradorGeral,

So in your control panel under mouse does it have a touch pad at all? Is it enabled in the BIOS, as I know some laptops give you that option to disable it. By mouse stopped working do you have an external mouse? Is it USB?

Hi guys,
I've just installed win8 on my media PC, I'm really happy with it for the most part, it's not worse then win7, there are some small but helpful changes to wmc. Metro looks great on the tv. There is just one problem, when I click on text boxes in metro apps with the mouse I don't get a keyboard as you would if you touched the text box. This is particularly annoying as I don't have a keyboard in my lounge room, and it seems that there is a whole new interface that would be perfect on the tv that I can't use very effectively I know you can launch osk.exe from the desktop and then switch to metro and it will stay on top but it's not really a very smooth solution. So i suspect there is a reg hack that I can implement that will cause the mouse to launch the touch keyboard in metro - is there? can someone tell me what it is? or any other solutions that would enable me to effectively use the metro interface with only a mouse input would be great. If this can't be done I really do think it's a massive oversight from Microsoft! There is a good interface that is unusable without a keyboard or touch. If i was to buy a new touch mouse would that do the trick or is it going to behave like a mouse in this respect?

Thank you very much for your assistance.

I write lots in Word and the touch pad is literally driving me nuts!!
I'm trying to avoid packing up the computer and shipping to IT people.

A:Laptop Touch Pad/External Mouse

(On my laptop) Fn+F7 disables touchpad, so maybe your laptop has an "F" key for that...

HP please fix the HP Touch Mouse X7000 - there are NO drivers for Windows 10 and it's been out for quite a while now.
 
Thanks,
Adam.

A:Mouse HP X7000 Wi-Fi Touch for Windows 10

I would download the windows 7 driver and install the driver in windows 7 compatibility mode. I had to do that for my son's WIFI card in his tower when we upgraded it to Windows 10  because there were no drivers for 10

I have a new X1 Carbon Thinkpad and got an X1 Wireless Touch Mouse to go with it.  My first Lenovo laptop.  Laptop works okay, but the mouse is driving me crazy.  I've put the mouse software in, tried every combination of features and buttons with the Lenovo software as well as with the Windows 10 software and nothing helps.  The problem is when I click on the left button (assigned to be the normal default click button), the mouse insists on showing the click-hold scrolling icon and things move all around the page.  I've used the click and hold before with other mice on other laptops without problem but at this point I'd just like to take it off.  But I can't figure out how.  It's extraordinarily frustrating to use that mouse like this.  Is it defective?  Is there some software thing that I've missed?  Never seen a mouse work (or not work) like this before.  Thanks for any advice or help here.

Hi guys,

I have an hp 430 pro book with Windows 7. It comes with the ps/2 compatible touchpad. Couple of days ago when I was dragging some pictures the touch pad stopped working. I can still scroll and the right button works but I can't click with the touch pad and the left mouse button.

Tried uninstalling the hardware from device manager but it just reboots my computer twice and I don't think the mouse got uninstalled.

I've been told to update my drivers but I'm not sure whether my copy of windows is genuine.

Any advice is much appreciated
