Trackpad and touchpad not working

2013-12-17, 22:17 PM

Today my x201 has lost all trackpad and touch pad function.   Hard disk constantly running.   No restore points listed to help remove the problem.   Everything works okay in Safe Mode.   Rebooting several times has not helped.

 

Could this be related to the Microsoft Bad KB.......69 update? I have not installed any new software recently.

 

I can only use the pen to access menus.    How can I remove recent KB installations using just the pen?

 

Hope someone can help me soon

 

Update:   I have managed to remove the bad MS update but to improvement.   Next I added a new user (also set as administrator) and the trackpad and touch pad function is now working normally but only with the new user account.

 

Would someone tell me if I can remove my own Administrator Account and what effect this will have,  i.e. what data might I lose?   Can I save data and reinstall it to a new account?

Solved! See the solution

Hi Beemer,

 

Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!

 

I’m sorry to hear that trackpad and touchpad is not working properly in your Lenovo ThinkPad X201.

 

Since the devices work fine in safe mode, probably a corrupted driver is causing the issue. Go to control panel -> Device manager, uninstall the drivers listed under Mice and other pointing devices. Restart the system and let Windows install the generic drivers for the device. Check if the trackpad and touchpad works fine now. Later, you may download the drivers from Lenovo Support page and install them. If you have any difficulties in finding the driver, please share the MTM number of your device.

Hope this helps!

 

Best regards,

Mithun.
