Thinkpad T420: Trackpoint and mousepad not working

2018-08-14, 7:06 AM

Both my mousepad and trackpoint have suddently stopped working. Keyboard works fine though. I have tried booting from a Debian live CD and the problem persists. I have checked that they are both enabled in BIOS. I have checked the keyboard connection and mousepad connection and both seem fine. I am not sure what the problem could be since if it was a hardware problem then surely the keyboard would also be having problems given that they share the same connection? Any ideas?


I have been having problems for some weeks now but the mouse would usually start working again after reinstalling psmouse with modprobe, but that won't work anymore.
