Edge E531 touchpad trackpoint not working

2013-09-27, 11:44 AM

Hi there!

 

Touchpad and trackpoint stopped working on my newly bought laptop (~1 month old). It just happend immediately. It's not working on Linux neither on Windows 8. System restarts doesn't help.

 

What can I do about it? Do anyone else have the same issue?

 

 

Thanks in advance. Looking forward any response.

Greetings!

I'm having the exact same problem. Out of a sudden, trackpoint and touchpad have stopped working. Any fix for that? It is not Windows related, as they don't work outside it neither (e.g. in Hiren's BootCD utilities).

 

@00nalu00: Did you solve the problem meanwhile?

 

Thanks!

Hi there!  The problem is somehow solved... Trackpoint and touchpad started working after day or two. Weird. I can't find any explanation on this. But it's annoying when a new device stop working out of the blue...

 

@Soapbubble How's your Thinkpad? Is it working properly?

Hi ! Unfortunately it didn't start working back, so I had to return my Thinkpad as I didn't want to struggle with it endlessly. I've heard quite a few had this same problem with Thinkpad (not only Edge) laptops, so I preferred the Ideapad y510p instead. ...which up to now is performing well. The e531 was a good laptop nevertheless, but it also lacked a good screen, compared to the y510p.

Cheers!
