t420 trackpoint does not work

Hello, guys. I recently purchased the Thinkpad T420 and so far am very satisfied. I noticed a problem though. I wanted to use the track point so I pressed FN + F8 and nothing. Figured ok, I'll go to through the control panel. Pressed on the mouse option under devices and printers. There is no trackpoint tab or the nav. I clicked on all the tabs. All I have are wheel, hardware, pointing device, buttons, pointers, and pointer options. Please help! Before I had an old IBM thinkpad and the trackpoint worked. One of the greatest assets! Thanks.

Re: t420 trackpoint does not work

Hi Gallydif,

Welcome to Lenovo Community!


As per the query we understood that you are facing an issue with Trackpoing on your ThinkPad T420.


I think you have not installed the drivers for that, please run ThinkVantage system update tool to install all the latest drivers for your system.

Hope this helps.


Best regards,

Hemanth Kumar
