X300 XP build - trackpoint locks up

2008-04-15, 3:59 AM
I rebuilt the X300 with XP SP2, it was easy with good documentation from Lenovo and the system update tool.
I have 2 bugs hoping someone may have some information on:
If I connect a USB WWAN card the trackpoint stops responding, if I connect an external mouse its fine but the trackpoint wont work again until I reboot. Anyone come across this?
Other bug is the integrated camera, it gives a " Max Headroom" take on video :-) picture is really jerky. I tried Netmeeting and Office Communicator 2005 and both behaved similarly
appreciate any help..

Hello Mcardgl,


I think the USB WWAN card may be related to the AT&T software overwriting the trackpoint driver (assuming you are using AT&T WWAN). I believe this is fixed with the latest version of the comm manager software:



I have not run into the other issue around Office Communicator personally, however I have heard the 2007 version fixes this.
