trackpoint does not work



I have a w520 and a problem. Sometimes trackpoint is not working, and sometimes after reboot it begin working again. But after time it cancel working totally.


I change a keyboard to a new and trackpoint works for about two weeks and now it not works again :smileysad:(. I have traing reboot a laptop, but it did not help :smileysad:(


To exclude a software problem I load new windows from a DVD, but trackpoint continies not to work...


For all time touchpad and keyboard and mouse works fine. Trackpoint for all time have enable in BIOS.


Trackpoint keys are not working also.


May be anybody have an idea what problem with touchpad I have?


Thank you.

Re: trackpoint does not work

Does it work properly in a Linux live USB environment?

Unlikely, but maybe the motherboard is damaged and breaking the TrackPoint module on the keyboard? Does the keyboard connector look damaged?
