Tried the new driver (v.126.96.36.199). It is helpful.
Hate that left and right click "buttons" are unreliable.
Please keep posting until problem is 100% fixed.
First time I have owned a Lenovo and unless the company steps up quickly, it may be the last.

Day 3 of having this laptop and haven't returned it yet because post sales isnt open again till monday. Touch pad still acts up and goes out of control, senses that something is touching it when there isn't anything.
Found that if you push the power button to put the computer to sleep then push it again after a few seconds, this seems to fix the touch pad issue temporarily. Tried actually restarting the computer and this did not work. Power button works for me.
Don't know if this means it's a driver/software issue or worse an actual physical problem.
Reply back if this helps at all or any idea what the actual problem is.

This evening I got the drifiting cursor/ trackpad problem.I have very little control over gestures, which is frustrating! I thought it was a virus but since everyone else is having the problem its a driver problem none the less. I love this laptop- better than my year old Toshiba but this trackpad problem is really pissing me off.
After some time, due to the cursor not being cooperative I finally got to check for driver updates, which came up with nothing. Instead, I went to the mouse device options and disabled all the Elan advanced gestures, such as what you can do with three fingers, etc... I think its a temp fix as well, especially since I dont think those advanced finger or trackpad gestures are helping any... But since I disabled that crap my mouse seems to work... who knows how long this will work but I am calling them in the AM! Indeed, I am at my whits-end with Windows PC laptops if this is not resolved soon I think I am going back to Mac PC's forever!! I am tired of making investments and getting crap that wont last more than a year at most, like my Toshiba laptop...

The on/off button does definitely clear the touch pad problem. The new driver has improved things but I still do get "stuck" at times, and when I do that seems to clear it right up.
Of course, I consider that a work-around and def not a fix!

It is a hardware issue. I had the touchpad replaced today and it is working. Demand a new touch pad.
How did you get the touchpad replaced? Did you send it back? Also, who did you get in contact with to make this happen?
