T480/A485 Mouse cursor freezing and loss of backlit keyboard

Q: T480/A485 Mouse cursor freezing and loss of backlit keyboard

I purchased a A485 and worked well but quickly replaced Mech harddrive with SSD. After reinstalling windows 10 I noticed I loss the function of the backlit keyboard, as well as my mouse cursor kept freeze when using the Track point when I would use the middle button for scrolling. all drivers up-to-date and even tried reinstalling windows and drivers again...still have this issue the mouse freezing is the must fustrating since I primarily use the Trackpoint to control my mouse functions. I found that locking (windows + L) and login back in frees up the mouse again...but typically freezes shortly after pretty fustrating, especially when one of the main reasons I buy Lenovo is their trackpoint. I've seen people have similar issues but no resolutions in their threads.

Hi, I just purchased a new T480 Thinkpad for work, which is a great computer. Unfortunatly the model I have does not have the backlit keyboard. The specific model I have is a 20L5000WUS. On the Lenovo support I do not see any option in the replacement parts for a backlit keayboard. If I purchase a backlit keyboard for a different T480 sub-model, will it work? Thanks,Nic

I have a new Thinkpad T480 docked to a new ultra docking station.  I have a new Logitech M500 (corded) mouse plugged into a USB port on the docking station.  As I am using the mouse, the cursor will sporadically "freeze" on screen for a couple seconds and then go back to normal.  This will happen frequently as I am using the computer.  Very frustrating.  Substituting this mouse for a Logitech MX400 yields the same results.  If I instead plug (either) mouse into the laptop directly (instead of the dock), the issue is does not occur.  Any ideas as to why this is occuring and what I can do to fix it?  I have already installed the latest updates from Lenovo Updater and for Logitech Setpoint as well. Thank you,CJ

When we have a USB Mouse and or Keyboard plugged into the laptop or the ThinkPad Pro Dock (M3F00) it will not boot, it will boot however if we turn off the USB UEFI Bios Support off, then we will have to use the laptop keyboard to logged in. Then the external mouse and keyboard will start working after that.How do we get this to work with the external keyboard and mouse.

when I boot the computer, I do not have access to the keyboard or mouse. System restore is turned off. THe keyboard works in the boot menu and in bios. bios shows the mouse and keyboard enabled. I tested the mouse on another system, and it worked fine. I also tested another mouse on this system and it failed to work in the same way. If I go to last good config in the boot menu, I can boot and have use of the keyboard but not the mouse. I cannot get into safe mode because it won't let me do a combination of last good boot and safe mode, so I cannot type anything in the login window. When I go to last good boot and navigate via keyboard to the device manager, there is no entry for the mouse. when I open the control panel and then open mouse properties and go to the hardware tab, it shows no driver and no mouse.

The fact that there seems to be a logic to this leads me to believe it is a virus or rootkit of some sort rather than a hardware problem.

ANy help getting my computer back would be greatly appreciated. Hoping to avoid a reformat.

So this issue started with my new build. Originally I was using a Logitech G19 keyboard and Logitech Performance MX mouse. After building the PC, I updated to the latest BIOS version. After installing Windows and during the numerous reboots when installing updates/patches, I noticed that sometimes as Windows was loading, my keyboard would not be lit and thus I could not enter my password into the login screen. A reboot or two would usually resolve the issue so I was just dealing with it.

Now, starting two weeks ago when I upgraded to a Razer BlackWidow Chroma keyboard and a Razer DeathAdder Chroma mouse, EVERY time that I boot, the keyboard/mouse will light when the PC is powered on and remain lit until Windows splash screen. Then, right before the login screen appears, the mouse and keyboard lights will go off and I will not be able to login to Windows (ie: keyboard and mouse do not function). However, if I move the mouse as the lights go out, the lights will come back on and both will remain operational.

As this occurs towards the end of Windows loading, I'm leaning towards this being a Windows issue. I've just never seen this before and have no idea how to fix it.

I can give the full hardware specs if needed (or you can check my system details to the left), although I don't see how other hardware would be a factor.

Hey everyone.

I hope this is the correct place for this kind of problem.

I would say, about two months or so ago, i starten having the problem where devices that are plugged in to the USB ports stopped responding.

Mouse went dead (Using the Logitech G9x, and the "sensitivity" light would start flashing)
Keyboard went dead
Headset sort of died, i still had sound, but i am unable to use voice.

Only solution was a "hard shutdown" of the computer.

The problem have been there since then, with an average crash every other day, and some days up to 3-4 times.

I'm not sure what other information i should add, but let me know and i will supply it.

Thanks in advance

Lately my HP Pavilion 750n (Windows XP as the OS, 1.6 GHz Pentium 4 processor and 768 MB RAM) has developed an problem of the mouse cursor freezing. This is accompanied by a click sounding from the tower and the HD light comes on. The computer completely locks up, so I can't determine what is causing this since pressing the CTRL-ALT-DEL keys are inoperative. I have to unplug the power, then re-start to get the mouse working again. I have MSE as the security software. Scans with this show no viruses. Any idea what's going on?
 

A:Mouse Cursor Freezing

The HP Pavilion 750n desktop is several years old, so it's a good probability the hard drive is failing.
The freezing mouse cursor and clicking sound from inside the tower reinforces that suspicion.

If the hard drive does need replacing and you don't have the original recovery disc kit available to install Windows XP, you can purchase it here.

Hi there,

My mouse cursor freezes once every ~30s for about 1~2s. It doesn't happen all the time, but I suspect it might happen because of the usage of postgreSQL, as I've seen 2 other people with the same problem who also used it.

I have tested another mouse, the problem persists. I've tried updating mouse/USB drivers as well, nothing helped.

My trackpad, however, doesn't stop working at any time.
Any ideas?

Thanks.

Interesting how when you tested another mouse the issue persisted, but it works with the trackpad. Are both mice you tried (non-trackpad) wired or wireless?

Good day,

Everything on my computer was fine this morning when I left for week, but upon my return I noticed that my keyboard/mouse wasn't working. I restarted my computer and confirmed that my keyboard works in the bios and whatnot, but when I get to the windows login screen, I get no response from the keyboard or mouse.

The mouse is a simple USB one, and I'm using a PS/2 keyboard, so I doubt it's some sort of sudden driver issue.
I tried logging into safemode, and I get the same result, can't move my mouse or use my keyboard.

Does anyone have any idea how to possibly fix this issue? I'm unable to restore from an earlier state either.

Thanks in advance for the help.
 

A:Sudden loss of keyboard/mouse input

Do you have a Windows Disk? If so you can boot to that and choose the repair option instead of the install.
If you don't have a Windows disk, can try another mouse and keyboard. If another mouse and keyboard work then the keyboard and mouse drivers can be removed and windows will automatically reinstall them on boot.

Hi.. I have had this problem for about a week now....
I have a sony vaio windows 7 IE 8 Laptop that I love and it is only a year old.
in the past 5 days the cursor on my logitech wireless mouse freezes. The only way to get out of it is ctrl. alt. del and it goes to my home screen and I cancel and the cursor comes back.. sometimes I go for hours and it doesnt
freeze and then sometimes it freezes every 5 minutes. there are times when I ctl. alt delete and it goes to my screen and I have to manually shutdown as even if I touch the pad on my laptop I cannot close it.. and of course when the cursor freezes
the screen freezes too.

Just to let you know that there is nothing wrong with my battery or mouse
as I have another one just like it and it does the same thing

I contacted Sony Vaio and they came in by remote and put in a patch
and said that should do the trick. but it did not...

any ideas....

do you need more info and if so what else would help in this situation.

I also play some games and that is when I most get this. and I have
the flash 102..... the latest version. and my java is uptodate.

I should also say that at times my IE8 says not responding.....

thanx Coco.

Hi Baggy2014,

Have you checked a different mouse on the system to isolate the issue? Also, perform a clean boot on the system to check the same:

Also, check the system under safe mode and let us know if it occurs there as well:

Safe Mode

Keep us posted with the results so we can advise you further.

Hello Lenovo and community users,I recently brought a Lenovo Flex 2-14 the one with i3/4gb ram, red colour, model: 20404.I use this notebook to DJ at events in dark environment and I've seen that there are models with backlit keyboards.My next question is can I replace the non backlit keyboard with a backlit keyboard?If it is possible can you please point me from where can I buy a backlit keyboard for this model. Thank you in advance.

A:Lenovo Flex 2-14 - change keyboard non backlit with backlit one.

You need to buy backlit keyboard on Ebay or Aliexpress. Also you need small 4-pin 1 mm pitch connector. There is possible to get 5v power from round capacitor near USB.

Suddenly after starting the computer and going online there was a loud buzz on my stereo output. The output goes from my optical audio. This has never happened before. I flipped the receiver to radio and it's fine. Typing on my backup computer now. The sound from this computer to a different input on the same receiver is fine.

The mouse and keyboard are fine here too. But none of my mice or keyboards work on my main computer. I have a wired mouse and keyboard bridging the two computers with a KVM so they can share the same screen too. On the main computer I also have a couple of mice and a keyboard attached wirelessly. This setup has been fine for a long time. Years.

But with the mouse and keyboard unresponsive (I've unplugged all but the wired one), there's no way to shut it down safely.

Can someone provide a plan to diagnose the problem or tell me how you solved a similar problem please?

A:Buzzing on audio output and loss of mouse/keyboard:can't shut down

First up is the machine listed in system specs the problem machine? Also have you tried other mice or keyboards wired or not on the problem machine.
Even if you can get at least a keyboard to work you can safely shut down using that.

Now the set up I do have a problem imagining it in my minds eye it sounds quite complicated. having said that if it has gone for years like that then maybe you have some serious hardware problems with either the plug in devices, the machine components or both.

Now I have Googled KVM (never head of that abbreviation and never used one) and find it is a piece of equipment too that could be going south?

Since the issue I'm having is roughly equivalent to Windows itself hanging, I figured this would be the best place.
What is happening is that Windows freezes and I can't interact with anything on the screen. CTRL-ALT-DEL and CTRL-SHFT-ESC methods to try to bring up the task manager do not work. I am, however, able to move the mouse when this is happening, but cannot interact with anything. The only thing that returns my system to normal is a hard boot . Over a 2 week period, it has happened at an increasing rate, but my system has run completely stable for something like 5-6 years now. I formatted and reinstalled windows in hopes of a fix, but it's still happening.

Hi Members
The cursor quit during using mouse or keyboard.  This had happened every time after 2 minutes approximately. When pressing the Esc / Enter or Click Mouse, now continue the point where is quit.

Appreciate any comments you may have. 

Thanks and Regards

How can I control the mouse cursor with my keyboard in Windows XP Pro? Sure it may not be as nice as the mouse and therefore I wouldn't use it always. Just when I code and need to do a little navigating. This way I wouldn't need to keep swaping from keyboard to mouse.
 

A:HOW: Use keyboard to control mouse cursor

I don't know if Win XP has the function, but go to Start, Help and search for mousekey.

In win98, you would enable it by going to accessibility options and turning it on there.

I just got a T470. Excellent computer! I got the Core i7-7600U model with 4gb of memory and a 500gb non-SSD hard disk (T470 20HDCTO1WW, ordered directly from Lenovo). The 2TB SSD and 32GB RAM I got from Crucial work without problem (yes, I ran a memory tester) ? although, yes, it?s a moderate pain to take off the back panel (even if you have a special plastic tool for doing so). It?s a really great laptop; I like how clear and bright the display is as well as how fast it runs. That said, on to my question: I got the model with the non-backlit keyboard. Is is possible to upgrade this model to have a backlit keyboard? Here is the information I have gotten from my research: * The dealers selling T470 backlit keyboards warn that it may not be possible to get the backlight to work if the motherboard does not support it (for example, https://www.amazon.com/ThinkPad-01AX569-SN20L72890-Backlit-Keyboard/dp/B0727S1H14/ where they claim ?Please check whether your laptop can support backlit keyboard or not before placing the order, if can not, the backlit function of our keyboard will not work!? or https://www.amazon.com/CHNASAWE-Replacement-Backlit-Keyboard-Thinkpad/dp/B071KWWW21/ with a similar ?If your original/old keyboard does not have the backlit, this keyboard backlit will not work.? warning) * There is nothing in Lenovo?s T470 service manual at https://download.lenovo.com/ibmdl/pub/pc/pccbbs/pubs/t470/html_en/index_en.html#Replacing_t...

I have a T450S that came with a standard keyboard.  If I bought the Lenovo FRU backlit keyboard and installed it, would it work?  Or is there something different about a system board or machine that was originally configured by Lenovo for a standard keyboard? Thanks.

I recently purchased a T460 to realize that it did not have a backlit keyboard on arrival, I see aftermarket ones online for reasonable prices so I'm curious as to whether or not there is some output on the motherboard I am missing or if it would be just like installing a regular one.  I have seen on forums that people have done it but I am asking specifically for the T460.

A:Can I replace a T460 non-backlit keyboard to a backlit one?

No problem.  Backlight keyboard is just swapped in - no other parts.

A:Can I replace my non backlit keyboard with a backlit keyboar...

OK here is the Service Manual: Manual The keyboards are not sold by HP as a separate part: only sold with the whole top cover. See p. 20 The Manual does not list any keyboard/top cover as having a backlight. However, the keyboard map on p. 15 shows the f5 action key as activating a backlight on "select models".  From this I gather that there is a place on the motherboard to connect a backlight cable if the keyboard has one. However, extracting the old keyboard from the top cover and replacing it with just the replacement keyboard is not easy and there are no directions in the Manual for that procedure. I would want to see one of these alleged backlit keyboards. Bottom line, it is possible, but I would be leery. Do you have an f5 action key with the backlight symbol on it? Have you tried it to see if maybe your keyboard is backlit? If this is "the Answer" please click "Accept as Solution" to help others find it.

Hi,
I have windows vista.
A couple of weeks ago someone on here assisted me with my computer. I had search engine redirect, along with other problems.
It was okay for awhile but then all of a sudden it started working very badly now. One thing is norton 360 seemed to disappear from my computer. I got directions and uninstalled norton and then reinstalled it again, now the norton seems to be working okay.
But since then, the mouse cursor has been moving erratically, totally disappearing and freezing up the whole screen. The screen keeps flashing to blank screens or my previous screen for a few seconds and then coming back to the screen I am on. It is having problems restarting alot of times and sometimes I can not even do anything before it freezes. I have started it in safe mode with networking and still seemed to have the same problems. The mouse pointer was still moving erratically and not working well. Just in the time that I have typed this so far the screen has flashed to a previous screen 4 times.
I have run norton scans and I dont think it is finding to much but tracking cookies.
Any other help would be appreciated.
Thanks
Kim

A:computer freezing, mouse cursor disappearing or moving erratically

Hello Kim,,, may be having a hard drive beginning to fail or file corruption. I would recommend immediate backupo of important files in case. Probably not a malware issue. So I 'd run SFC and if you still hae trouble ask this in Vista and they can check your drive and other things.Please run SFC (System File Checker) Please run System File Checker sfc /scannow... For more information on this tool see How To Use Sfc.exe To Repair System FilesNOTE for Vista/WIN 7 users..The command needs to be run from an Elevated Command Prompt.Click Start, type cmd into the Start/Search box,right-click cmd.exe in the list above and select 'Run as Administrator'You will need your operating system CD handy.Open Windows Task Manager....by pressing CTRL+SHIFT+ESCThen click File.. then New Task(Run)In the box that opens type sfc /scannow ......There is a space between c and /Click OKLet it run and insert the CD when asked.
