help needed for x240

I recently purchased a refurbished x240 - I am having 2 issues, which I would welcome help with:

 

1. the areas with buttons on the top and bottom of the track pad also move the cursor - this often causes an inaccuracy, with the cursor moving slightly before or after pressing one of these buttons - is there anything which can do done about this, or is it a design fault?

 

2. my computer arrived with no internal battery, just a 6-cell external battery - the seller claims that the internal battery only functions if the external battery is a 3-cell, and that there is therefore no point in me purchasing an internal battery - can this be verified?

 

Thanks for your help!

Re: help needed for x240

Hi

1. I can't explain the 1st issue clearly, it might be a question of the touchpad drivers.

2. the seller isn't right. There are different combinations of the batteries types in x240:
No + 3-cell
No + 6-cell
3-cell + 3-cell
3-cell + 6-cell

Also, take a look at the topseller models and their batteries options:

Thanks for reply.

Re issue 1 (the touchpad button areas also move cursor) I have reinstalled drivers, but the problem persists.

I was hoping for a mouse setting where I could reduce area on touchpad that controls cursor movement, thus freeing up the button areas to act only for the buttons...

Check out the BIOS version in the laptop.
