X1 touch pad & trackpoint not working

2011-10-17, 20:20 PM

I had a user complain of their mouse being frozen. At first I thought it was crashed but the keyboard is still working fine.

 

With an external mouse connected the mouse would move on the screen.  

 

Is there a key combo that will disable both devices? I'm wondering if this was pressed.

 

If I uninstall the drivers and software then the Touchpad and Touchpad only worked, when I reinstalled the drivers both of them again failed to move the mouse.  It is acting as if they have been disabled.

 

 When I open the mouse properties in the controll panel and go to the UltraNav tab this is what I get

Try looking in the BIOS, if it's been disabled there, There's and option to enable/disable the trackpad and trackpoint.

Hi I found this old post but I have exactly the same issue (and the same symptoms in mouse properties) with an X230 that I have just received new from Lenovo. Their technical service does not seem to know how to resolve it and suggest me to return it to their depot for repair (which is crazy as this unit is brand new!)

 

I don't see a resolution posted to this thread. Can you recall how the issue your user encountered was resolved?

kaasmier:

 

Have you tried enabling Touch Pad and TrackPoint with Fn+F8? This works on the X230 but not on the X1 as the keyboard layout is different. Also check to see if the device is enabled in the UltraNav tab or if it's enabled in BIOS.

 

I hope that provides some insight,

 

Ed

Hi Ed,

 

The trackpoint is disabled (greyed out and not ticked) in the ultranav tab mouse properties. Touchpad is enabled, however also not working. It looks exactly the same as the screen shot in the earlier post in this thread.

 

Tried the following:

- Disable/Enable in BIOS

- Update BIOS to latest version

- Re-install Ultranav drivers (several times)

- Update all WIN7 (64Bit) updates

- Update all Lenovo updates from Lenovo website.

 

Fn+F8 does not work as it controlls screen brightness (as per Keyboard layout). I cannot find any other key combination that could enable/disable the touchpad and/or trackpad. Also the manual does not describe any such combination.

 

None of the above has helped.

 

The only time the touch pad has been working is when I uninstall the ultranav drivers and only the windows generic PS/2 mouse driver is defaulted by WIN7. The trackpoint and the three buttons never worked.

 

Could this be a hardware issue? 

 

I have not tried to install the driver I can find on the Synaptics website, it has a lower version number and I suppose it may not work without the Lenovo customisations. Do you think it is worth trying?

 

Lastly, I am wondering if it could have to do with the ultrabase dock I also bought. When docking should the touchpad etc become disabled? It does not change anything when I dock or undock the machine though. 

 

Your help is appreciated.

I'm also having the same issue with my new X1 carbon, the touchpad and trackpoint suddently stop working, I can move the pointer but the click doesn't work. Inserting external USB mouse solve the problem. After restarting few times, the problem disappear however it comes back for no reason. Is this manufacturing defect?
