I have an E460 laptop, on which I'm dual booting Windows 10 Pro and Manjaro Linux (basically Arch Linux) with Linux kernel 4.5.2.
Having the same problem that people discuss in the E460 Keys repeating when pressed for 3 seconds thread, I have been bumping my bios to 1.13, 1.16, and yesterday, to bios 1.17, to see if the problem had been resolved.
With the 1.17 bios update, my touchpad and trackpoint stopped working in Linux (In Windows they work fine). They do not even show up in /dev/input, and there is no mention of either of them in dmesg, journalctl, /var/log/Xorg.0.log, or anywhere.
The touchpad and stick worked fine in bios 1.13 and 1.16, so I'm thinking there is some regression in 1.17.
Is anyone else experiencing this? Can Lenovo confirm whether there is a problem?
Solved! Go to Solution.

Thank you, jonas_hendrickx, that was the trick! I had not tried resetting the bios to default settings. Doing that, and it the touchpad and trackpoint are with me again.

Could you please advise how to reset BIOS settings to default? I have installed Ubuntu 16.04 64-bit on a brand new ThinkPad E460, but botht touchpad and trackpoint don't work at all...
