P50 Trackpoint Middle Button Stopped Working

Hey folks,

 

The middle button for trackpoint doesn't work. All drivers are up to date. Middle button is enabled for scrolling, not clicking. Middle button works when switched over for clicking. It just randomly stopped working last week, but it works when I switch it over to clicking in the settings tool.

 

Any ideas?

 

Thanks

Did you solve this?  Had the literal exact same problem start on my P50 yesterday.  The thing that I think caused it was the Windows 10 Creators update, but I'm not 100% certain on that.

I had exactly the same problem. However, I had noticed that a new "Synaptic Driver" had had been installed via Windows Update the other day. Opening the Hardware Manager and rolling back to the previous driver resolved the problem for the moment. I cannot tell, if this will work with the Creators Update as well, as I have not installed this yet (and do not plan to do so for another couple of weeks).

The same thing happened to me this week when a new Synaptics Pointing Device driver was automatically installed. As mentioned by @BlueEntity, rolling back the driver and rebooting the system resolved the issue.

 

I've attached images showing the versions of the new (problematic) and old (working) drivers for reference.

I can verify that the latest driver (11/01/2017) is problematic. Lost the middle button function as well after an update last week. Managed to solve the problem by rolling back to the older driver (27/10/2016).
