TrackPoint stopped working

2019-08-07, 12:58 PM

I have a P72 Thinkpad. The TrackPoint input (pointer and buttons) stopped working recently. Touchpad does still work. When I check the TrackPoint settings in the Levovo Vantage app it shows that Trackpoint is turned off but the control is disabled and will not allow me to turn it on.

 

Solved! See the solution

Found in the Lenovo Vantage app update history that a TrackPoint Firmware Update Utility had failed to install a few weeks ago. Went to the support site on the web and manually downloaded and installed that update. Once it completed the Trackpoint is again working.
