P51 upper mouse buttons stopped working

2018-07-27, 6:09 AM

Hi,

 

The lower mouse buttons on my laptop work fine. The upper ones stopped working recently.

 

When i first got the laptop, they worked fine. Then a few months ago, I updated drivers through Lenovo Vantage, and they stopped working. I don't rememeber what I did to resolve the issue. I may have uninstalled the drivers and used some default Microsoft ones, but they did start working again. But now I ran Vantage again a few days ago, and they are again not responding.

 

I would like them to work with these latest drivers supplied through Vantage.

 

Any ideas guys?

Solved! See the solution

Dear customer,

Can you open the mouse properties and check the TrackPoint enabled?

Thanks Rydeen. That fixed it. It WAS enabled, but I disabled it, pressed apply, then re-enabled it and applied again, and now it works fine.

I am so happy to have found this fix! My touchpad buttons suddenly stopped working.  I spent a very frustrating day trying to fix it. Then I ran across this fix.  Just went into Synoptics (mouse) settings and first clicked disable TrackPoint, then clicked enable TrackPoint. And Voila!  They both started working.  Thank you folks!

Thanks!. I followed your instructions for my P71, and was able to get the Trackpad buttons working again. Prior to that they had become inoperative.

I just ran into this problem w/ my P71 and disabling/enabling trackpoint also fixed the issue. Thanks!
