I have a Thinkpad R400 with Windows 7 installed. I have tried several times to activate the trackpoint with no success.
I have checked in the bios screen which lists it as active (automatic) but when I check under mice in the control panel it only gives me the touch pad not the track point.
I performed a driver update which gave me UntraNav but it has the track point greyed out.
Any assistance in this would be greatly appreciated.

I have installed both, it just gave me the ultranav utility rather than the windows mouse properties box.
Neither file has enabled the track point. I have doublechecked the bios settings again and the track point is enabled in bios too.

Remove the keyboard and unplug the touchpad from the motherboard, then plug the keyboard back in.
Do you have the mouse (TrackPoint) now?

If it's not a software issue, then it might be a software issue.
Thinkpad are quite easy to service. Here is the Maintenance Manual: http://download.lenovo.com/ibmdl/pub/pc/pccbbs/mobiles_pdf/43y6629_05.pdf
Follow the steps to remove the keyboard. It just involve a couple of screws.
