T480/A485 Mouse cursor freezing and loss of backlit keyboard

2019-08-13, 14:33 PM

I purchased a A485 and worked well but quickly replaced Mech harddrive with SSD.


After reinstalling windows 10 I noticed I loss the function of the backlit keyboard, as well as my mouse cursor kept freeze when using the Track point when I would use the middle button for scrolling.


all drivers up-to-date and even tried reinstalling windows and drivers again...still have this issue the mouse freezing is the must fustrating since I primarily use the Trackpoint to control my mouse functions. I found that locking (windows + L) and login back in frees up the mouse again...but typically freezes shortly after pretty fustrating, especially when one of the main reasons I buy Lenovo is their trackpoint.


I've seen people have similar issues but no resolutions in their threads.
