T431s Trackpad mouse gone crazy

2013-06-03, 15:00 PM

As a confirmed trackpoint user, having the mouse built into the trackpad of the T431s is causing me all sort of grief, including sore wrists - but there are two problems I can't seem to diagnose.

1)  When clicking the pad for left mouse click, it often does not work until I click it a few times.  I notice this more when I disable the trackpad for cursor movement (which I had to do because the cursor moves when I try to click) - but its there even when that is enabled.  It comes and goes.  I guess there could be some foot trapped in there, but I've only had it a week and been pretty careful.  I'd rather not learn to remove the keyboard on day 6.  

2) The right click gets into a condition where, when browsing,a click brings up a new tab of the link I clicked on, rather than showing me the options (open in new tab, incognito window, save link, etc).  If I connect a real mouse, it is normal.

Looking at it, I would say that it operates that way by design.  As a trackpoint user, I suspect the T431s is a poor choice.  Perhaps you can exchange it for the T430s?

I just received my T431s and found the new system mouse crazy and unusable with the track point. When you click, the full touch pad move !!
For users who like IBM track point, never buy a T431s !

hi lakegeezer,

 

did you solved this problem? I have the same here, and can't have a right click by simply tapping the right red stripe. and I have to click a few times to have a right click...

all my drivers are up to date

I agree the new touch pad / stick is CRAP - and it gets worse if you plug in a kbd with the old trackpoint. The driver can't handle both and half the setup goes away. 

 

I'm hoping a new driver comes out soon and fixes it all - I'm temped to go back to my 420s

The 431s went back and replaced with a T430s. Lenovo was great in paying for the return shipping and only asked me why I was returning it - which I articulated clearly.   I'm very happy with my T430s, as the trackball and mouse buttons work as expected.  After an after-market upgrade of memory, bay-battery and an SSD drive, I can't imagine having a sweeter machine.  The 431s was never going to work out for me.
