I have Linux Mint 18 on a T410 but am having difficulty because the cursor keeps wandering acreoss the screen.
Is there any solution that does not require Windows?

Do you know that it isn't a problem in windows? I ask because usually, wandering cursor is a hardware problem. You don't have a touch screen, which leaves the touchpad and the trackpoint. Can you try disabling them one at a time to narrow it down?

I restored the original Windows 7 Pro image and then installed Linux MInt alongside Windows and can report that the cursor behaves with both OSs. Having Win 7 there is probably irrelevant, the trick was probably in re-installing Linux.

Would you please kindly help me with this? I have the same computer ThinkPad T410, windows 7. It cannot boot up and I don't have the disc that restore the computer to factory setting. Would you kindly create the retore files from your computer and email them to me? I apologize for asking this but I couldn't find the T410 recovery.

I do not have a restore disk or files. I created a disk image when I received the laptop and restored this image when I had the problem. I doubt whether this image could be used on another computer. If yoiiu do not have a copy of the operating sysem it is always a good idea to make a disk image in case of emergency.
