I love my new lenovo E520
But it comes to my attention that my trackPoint wont work.
Before I go on, I must say that I am a computer technician and I am **bleep** good at what I do. You know something is wrong when I'm posting my problems here hoping that someone will help me out.
A little about my machine with the upgrades I have made:
I5 @ 2.3GHz
8gb HyperX memory
Win 7 PRO
Drivers from windows update and the regulars from the lenovo support page (including ultraNav)
So I go to the mouse settings in Control Panel and I click the UltraNav section and the who trackPoint section is grayed out. I put the taskbar icon and all the trackPoint is grayed out there too.
I Have a second machine that is exactly the same as this with the same specs and it all works.
Only difference is that since this is MY computer, I disabled the bluetooth radio, the wimax radio and the wan radio because a.)they take battery, b.)I am hyper sensative to the bluetooth radio. other than that, all the bios settings are the same.
Uninstalled the hardware for the mouse, uninstalled synaptics and ultranav and finally the device itself, restarted windows with the generic ps2 mouse driver. still no. installed ultranav again. still no. the three buttons below the stick don't work at all either.
Next on my list of attempts is this system update utillity from lenovo and then finally minixp to see if i even have functionallity from it and to make sure it's not a hardware problem. I'll let you know how these go but untill then, I hope you guys have something that'll help me out.
