Lenovo Thinkpad W550s middle button & trackpoint scrolling doesn't work properly

Question: Lenovo Thinkpad W550s middle button & trackpoint scrolling doesn't work properly

At certain relatively slow speeds the scrolling jumps huge leaps regularly (probably after evey page or so). It's very bad with Chrome and Windows explorer, not so bad but noticeable in Thunderbird. I have set the scrolling to 1 line. My Synaptics drivers are the newest 10/04/2015. Also the treshold to start scrolling with middle button and trackpoint is very high - can't be that hard to make it smooth, so you could scroll very slowly? Please fix this soon... it's impossible to live with.

On my L420, i had it set so i can move the mouse with my thumb and scroll with my index finger with the center trackpoint button.
 
However, the Ultranav options are different for the W541, so, (as far as i can tell) i can't find the option to replicate this.
 
See screenshots of my configuration.
 
Basically, i want my center trackpoint button to be always in "scroll" mode, without the need to press the middle button and scroll like on the L420.

I just got a T500 to replace my dead R51. One of the things I really liked about my old Thinkpad was that I could use the middle trackpoint button as a third mouse button, which is great for opening links in new tabs in Firefox or copy/pasting in console windows. However as far as I can tell the only options in the mouse configuration are "Scroll", "Zoom", and "Neither", and neither just disables the button entirely. I should mention I'm using Windows Vista. Does anybody know how to fix this?

Hello, Is there a way to have both - scrolling with trackpoint while holding the middle mouse button - and - being able do a middle click with the middle mouse button? I can accomplish this easily under Linux like it is described here. But under Windows it seems to be impossible. I can only have either middle clicking or trackpoint scrolling. I need both.  If anyone knows a solution to this please let me know. Walter (I have a X200s and Windows 7 x64 installed)

Answer:Trackpoint scrolling AND middle clicking

Yeah, this is easy in Linux can't we get some pressure to actually get this implemented properly in windows. Useability is the main reason i got a thinkpad it would be nice to know we could actually influence it in some way. (Bumping an old topic here)

I saw an old thread and mods can merge them if necessary.

So here is my problem:
Since few days ago my mid button doesn't work, so I can't open page in new tab with single click (Ctrl + click works and right click->open in new tab works). I don't care about scrolling faster because my mouse has that "fast scrolling" thing, but browser problem drives me crazy.

I have Logitech G500 mouse, and button is working properly, because when I change it to for example minimize window, it does exactly that. Tried another mouse - same problem.
Can anybody help?

Win7 works perfectly on my computer(s) ever since first RC version (or at least almost perfectly )
Updates are off, except for security ones.
I mean... There is one solution - I can always reinstall Win, but maybe something more sophisticated? ^^

I have upgraded my old T410i with some extra RAM and an SSD. The system works great and fast. There is one problem. I have noticed that although my trackpoint and right and middle button (above trackpad) work like the should the left button (above trackpad) doesn't. I thought this has to work like the left mouse button or the left button under the trackpad but it doesn't. I have the latest bios version 1.45 installed and the latest drivers. I have also tried to detach the keyboard and attached it again. After that I tried to disable the trackpoint in the bios and enable it again. This doesn't help either. Maybe it is a defective key because all the other functions and keys do work. Is there something overlook?

Hi Debtop, If you're talking about the functions keys, the blue button, and the volume buttons on your keyboard, those are controlled by the Hotkey driver. Go to this link, download the driver, follow the installation instructions on the page, and then reboot the unit. http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/MIGR-68000.html Those buttons should function again after doing this. Mark

Hi all. I ask for any pointers to start looking at this if you can.

This week after some updates from MS in my W10 OS I noticed that clicking the middle button is not working at all. Normally in a browser you can open in a new tab or close a tab, etc.

I have a Microsoft wireless mobile mouse 1000. Whet I get this mouse and connected for the first time (windows 8 at the time) some driver was installed and also "Microsoft Mouse and Keyboard center" was downloaded and installed. Everything worked fine. I upgrade to W10 and no problem with this until earlier this week.

Testing the options in the Microsoft Mouse and Keyboard center, none of them works when I click the middle button. I just download and installed the version from the site. Installed in a regular fashion and in compatible mode for W8. (can you believe this is not for w10?

The scroll function works fine even the Flip scrolling direction.



Later I went to a DELL desktop (W8) and I tried the MS mouse there and works fine. Maybe I have to "tell" W10 to forget his is a MS mouse and to have the default driver. If such, how?

Also, I tried the mouse from that desktop here in windows 10 and works fine. (dell mouse without installing anything myself).

Any ideas are welcome and appreciated,

Best regards and thanks for your time

I am not a fan of the new "clickpad", I'm a long time ThinkPad user so my pointing device of choice is the Trackpoint (eraser).  I've set the control panel on this for "Trackpoint Only", and at least the virtual buttons are useable now.  HOWEVER... the "middle button" seems to be stuck in only the "scroll" mode.  The latest control panel doesn't seem to have an option to set it as "normal middle button" - it is just doing this scrolling thing.  I would like to set the middle click action to a regular "middle click", not scrolling.  Anyone know if there is a registry key or some other way to do this, and not the scrolling thing? Thanks!

I usually use the trackpoint(red button on keyboard, I think it's called the trackpoint) to move the cursor, and use the buttons below it to click. When I first got the computer (An R60), the middle button below the spacebar was a great way to scroll, but then one day it stopped working. Whenever I would push the middle button, the trackpoint would freeze and only scroll (The buttons on either side of it still worked though.). The only way I could move the cursor was by the touchpad or by turning the computer off and starting it back up. I tried going into the mouse settings and fixing this, double-clicking the middle button when it froze to see if it would stop, but nothing worked. I finally gave up on it, but I thought I might ask here to see if anybody can help me. Does anyone have a solution to this?

Hi, I refer to the trackpoint properties in cpanel -> mouse -> ultranav tab -> trackpoint pane -> settings -> choose scrolling or magnifying glass function. When this is set to scrolling I can hold down the middle button and move the trackpoint to emulate scrolling which is very useful. But I can't middle click. When I set this to neither obvious I can middle click but I can't scroll. I'm just wondering if it is possible to enable both of these functionalitites simultaneously?

Answer:enabling both middle-button scrolling AND third-button click

tell me  how would your computer know whether you wanted it to perform a click or a scroll?  thats why there has to be two buttons for two things incidentally, if you have it set to scrollling, it WILL click on links! it will also open anew tab for the link, or shut a tab, in firefox, if you click on the tab bar with it  it seems to be a scroller on things that can scroll, and a clicker on things that can click    works for me anyways!  other than that, if you can only handle one mouse button go buy yourself a mac! ....only joking!

I was having responsiveness issues with the trackpad for a while, then, i open my laptop one day and it's completely unresponsive, as well has the backlit keyboard not working (the hotkey still pops up that it's "lighting up" the keyboard, but no actual lights) and the trackpoint being completely unresponsive too. I've tried:- Restarting computer- Using Lenovo's various "fixing" softwares- Looking for a keyboard firmware shortcut for enabling/disabling trackpad, (doesn't exist on this computer)- Re installing drivers (Ultranav driver refuses to install manually, "driver installation failed")- Booting on a non microsoft OS (Booted on a linux Mint installation and it still doesn't work)- Booting into BIOS and looking for "enable/disable trackpad option", That option does not exist for me.- Opening up computer and checking the physical connection, All plugged in fine. When i open the device manager in windows there is no entry for the mouse whatsoever. The touch screen and the pen both work fine. I think it all points towards a hardware issue, i can pick up another trackpad on ebay for pretty cheap, but obviously i'd like to make sure that it would actually solve the issues.  The major confusion for me is that why would faulty trackpad hardware stop the backlit keyboard from lighting up? How are the two linked? Any ideas appreciated, Thanks!

The middle trackpoint button of my keyboard stopped to work (it has to be pressed very hard). I took picture of it showing what exactly was broken.   Notice that the black plastic part got separated from the base metal plate causing the middle button stopped to work.I just want to share it because it might be a quality issue. I contacted local Lenovo service and got a new keyboard replacement. Unfortunately it is different (compatible) part number. The new keyboard 45N2219 has much more soft feel than the old one 45N2149

Trackpoint + dragging is still not working with the Ultranav middle button as of 16.2.19.2 driver. It's an extremely important function for any 3D graphics program. With the Lenovo driver it's not possible to use the middle button + trackpoint to navigate in these programs! Lenovo, please fix this bug. It's working perfectly if I install the latest Synaptics driver. It's only happening with Lenovo's driver. Using Synaptics driver is not an option, because it has no guard against keyboard typing + touchpad accidental clicking. Test:Testing is very easy.1. Set your middle button behaviour to "None".2. Above an empty area of your desktop, click the middle button + try to move the mouse pointer with your trackpoint. The pointer isn't moving!

I have a Samsung R580 laptop and the trackpad button doesn't work quite right. The button is a single piece button. The right clicking works just fine, but when I try to left click, it doesn't always work. I'll have to press really hard to get it to work. This has only started the last couple of weeks. I know that I probably shouldn't, but I take a thin knife and stick it in the crack surrounding the button and slide it back and forth a few times. This seems to fix the button momentarily, but only for a few seconds. After which, it goes right back to hardly working. I have no idea of what's wrong. I can use a mouse, but it's much more convienient to use the trackpad button. I can also use the trackpad it's self to tap which will do the same thing as clicking the button, but I keep clicking things I don't want to. Any ideas ? I don't know that the keyboard being dirty is causing it, as every other button works perfectly.

trying to decide between the T540P/T550 and W541/W550s..... it will be for school and would like to have a 5th gen i series CPU but that's not top priority as other specs are the deciding factor for me. ether one needs dedicated graphics and 16 or 32 gb of ram with windows 7 and a 3K display.... do I really need an i7 for graphics and computer service/IT? what do you recommend?

Answer:Lenovo Thinkpad T540P/T440P vs Thinkpad W541/W550s

They are all good machines.  First thing I would say is that I would highly suggest sticking to the newer models that have physical trackpoint buttons above the touchpad instead of the large clickpad (e.g. the T540p).  Even if you only use the touchpad, the newer one is significantly better.  I have a T440s myself and actually replaced the original clickpad with the one from the newer model because the original was so terrible.You also need to think about whether you need a dedicated Quadro GPU or not.  This would be the main difference between the T and W series.  For heavy graphics work, the W series is the better option whereas the T series is designed for more business-oriented workloads.You then really have the slightly tricky decision for the CPU.  Currently Intel have not released full power Broadwell (5th gen) CPUs.  This means that the T550 and W550s have the 5th generation, low voltage CPUs.  While these are still good chips and will certainly improve battery life, they will be slightly less powerful than the full power counterparts and also don't have quad core options (they are all dual core with hyperthreading).  If you want a full power/quad core chip, you would need to then go for the W541, however this does mean you are getting a slightly older Haswell chip.  Whether this bothers you is really up to you.Whatever you do, also ensure that you get an IPS screen - The ThinkPad IPS screens are fantastic, the TN...

Last night (4/6/2017) an automatic Windows update just now decided to install the most recent Synaptics driver (titled Synaptics - Mouse - 1/11/2017 12:00:00 AM - 19.3.4.66), which apparently is nearly 3 months old at this point.  One thing this update seems to have fixed is an issue I?ve been having with my ThinkPads for upwards of 7 years ? randomly it resets my mouse wheel 'number of lines scrolled per notch' option back to 1 (I prefer 3) pretty much daily, which is a HUGE annoyance, so I?m very grateful for this update and I?d like to keep it. However, it also completely disabled middle click scrolling with my TrackPoint (yes, I have ?Use for scrolling? checked under the TrackPoint settings).  The middle button does nothing now, unless I check ?Use as middle click?.  Rolling back the Synaptics driver to the previous one fixes this issue. Confoundingly, the TrackPoint scrolling with my ThinkPad Bluetooth keyboard still works fine. Has anyone else experienced this problem?  Any ideas how to re-enable TrackPoint scrolling on this newest driver? System details:ThinkPad P50 ?

Hello.    Is there a way to have both - scrolling with trackpoint while holding the middle mouse button - and - being able do a "Use pointing device for slow motion pointer only / scrolling and tap zone only" settings ? I need both. But the middle scrolling button is disabled when I apply "Use pointing device for slow motion pointer only / scrolling and tap zone only" settings. If anyone knows a solution to this please let me know. Hysu. I have a X100e and Windows 7 x86 installed

I just got a Thinkpad X220 and the "Thinkpad mini dock plus series 3". When the x220 is placed into the station only the monitor display works and it charges the x220. However, the "Startup button" in the dock in the dock never lights up and doesn't work; None of the USB ports work; And the speaker "port" doesn't pass sound. If I connect all the external USB, sound, etc. directly to the laptop ports (not the dock ports) they all work. I can't find anything that would help me troubleshoot this. It's probably obvious. Any ideas?

Answer:"thinkpad mini dock plus series 3" doesn't work properly with X220 in place

hey cmcneil,when you dock your unit, do you dock it while the unit is switched on or while it is switched off?anyway, i would suggest a bios update for your unit.

Hey Lenovo Enthusiasts! I am about to purchase the Lenovo Thinkpad 550s, and I am tempted to purchase the baseline memory (4GB) and storage (512GB) HDD.  I want to make sure that I can indeed upgrade the memory to 16GB of RAM and the storage to a 256 (or 512) GB SSD. In my research earlier on, I noticed that somebody had posted a link to the parts list:https://download.lenovo.com/parts/ThinkPad/w550s_frubom_20150130.pdf I don't know what half of this technical jargon is, but from what I gather, I have found an SSD made by Samsung on Amazon, and an 8GB memory made by Data Memory Systems that seem to abide. SSD:http://www.amazon.com/Samsung-256GB-2-5-Inch-Internal-MZ-7KE256BW/dp/B00LMXBOP4 Memory:http://www.datamemorysystems.com/parts/lenovo/03X6657/ Questions:1) Could somebody wiser than me please verify that these products will work for the w550s? I was going to purchase them from Crucial, as they say that is is "100% compatible" but I am not sure still.Crucial: http://www.crucial.com/usa/en/compatible-upgrade-for/Lenovo/thinkpad-w550s 2) In regards to the warranty, does anyone know if I were to mess up the data preloaded on the HDD that is put in the laptop, by trying to transfer it to the SSD, would the warranty cover fixing this? Kind regards,Spencer

Answer:Lenovo Thinkpad W550s Memory upgrade to 16GB and S...

Very disappointing. Yes, I have the same problem (son, since it is your problem!). I note that over 189 people have at least looked at this question you asked before we decided to have you purchase the W550S...and after calling tech support one last time after my son purchased the machine (and was told there should be no issue)-we see BSOD multiple times within an hour.  They happen so quickly that it is hard to even note what the error message is.... I replaced his 512 HD with Samsung SSD 512GB drive. I used a disk duplicator-everything seemed to go great. Then I put in 16GB of RAM-again, everything seemed great. However, the notebook is only now being used frequently as my son is starting school now-and as said above, the BSOD is making me think this has something to do with the SSD or RAM replacement. Yes, obviously, it's fairly easy to replace with the original parts and see if the problem goes away-but he wanted the SSD and more RAM, so even if that fixes the issue-we will likely get rid of the notebook. BUT:  here is what disappoints me:  absolutely no comment on my son's original questions. I'm guessing I won't get input from Lenovo either....will try to call tomorrow, but we are almost beyond the point where we need to return the SSD/RAM and notebook if we want our money back. A little guidance from Lenovo would be appreicated before we need to make a decision.. Thanks,Steve

Dear Lenovo, I bought a Lenovo W550s laptop last August, and last week I spilled water on the keyboard. Now, about 8 buttons on the keyboard (at least), don't work. I am curious, will the warranty help me in any way with any thing?  Also, I am looking for a replacement (internal) keyboard, and am having trouble finding one. I am pretty sure that the keyboard that shipped with my laptop last fall was not backlit, as the keyboard never lit up (unless I didn't know how to turn it on). Anyways, the Parts No.: 0C44952, ID No.: 57P1ZW, FRU No.:04Y2387, Model No. KM BL-105US.  When I looked up the part on Lenovo's website, it returned nothing: http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/partslookup.  So, my questions for you are:1.) Does the Lenovo warranty help me cover my malfunctioning keyboard?2.) Is the keyboard that I have, Parts No. 0C44952, a backlit keyboard?  3.) Where can I get a compatible keyboard replacement for this laptop? 4.) Will this keyboard replacement work? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA3DY3CW6149&ignorebbr=1 Kind regards,Spencer

Hi Whhsu,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community!
 
As per your query we understood that you are facing the issue with mute button on ThinkPad X230.
 
The normal procedure for updating the system to Windows 8.1 is that when you are in Windows 8 you have to update all the drivers first and then you have to update Windows 8.1.
 
To resolve the issue now please download Hotkey feature application from Lenovo support site and install it.
 
Below is the link to enter the downloads page and download latest application accordingly, please click on "Select Product" then in "QUICK PATH" enter the MTM no. select the exact model.

I have updated to the latest Ultranav drivers. All my previous thinkpads have had the option to select the middle mouse button action. The Thinkpad Yoga defaults to scrolling, and there is no option to change it to "magnify" or "neither". Also, the option to disable the trackpad in BIOS like the t440s has seems to be missing as well. Any advice?

Answer:Thinkpad Yoga - No option to select middle mouse button action

Hi eggsbenedict, Same on the ThinkPad Helix, no more options for the middle button, which doesn't bother me as I always used it for scrolling.I am guessing Lenovo removed the functionality from the driver. Vince.

Dunno when it happened, months ago, but on my win7 64b folders my middle mouse button and the arrow at the end of the Scrollbar doesn't scroll to the right when in list mode.

In Details View, Large Icons View, etc the scrolling works up/down properly, only in List View which is left/right it only scrolls to the left using the mouse or by clicking on the left arrow on the scrollbar. So the only way i have to scroll to the right in a folder on list view is to either navigate the files or use the bar on the scrollbar.

This is super annoying since my preferred view is list.

If anybody knows of a fix please share.

Thanks

Answer:Mouse Middle Button and scrollbar doesn't scroll Folders on List view

Well have you installed any sort of explorer tweak or shell in the past that might have interfered with the default behavior?
Else you should try some registry fixers because it seems like this is either an issue with your register or with the "explorer.exe" application.

I have this same issue on my ThinkPad Twist with Windows 10 and Excel 2013.  I found that rolling back the Synaptics driver cures the scrolling issues in Excel.  However, rolling back the driver makes you lose your Synaptics Trackpoint/Pad specific control panel.

Try setting it to a different command, not 'middle click'. If the new setting doesn't work and the drivers and software are installed correctly, then it could be a faulty button. When you push the button does it feel like it's clicking or does it feel like it could be jammed?

What software are you trying to use the middle click in? Sometimes you have to set it in both the mouse settings and the program's options, like in games for example.

I have no idea what my sister and her friends were doing on the comp for a couple of days that i decided not to use it, but now:

- a few programs take forever to load or don't load at all, but they do show up under the processes tab in the task manager
- after pressing Ctrl Alt Del, the task manager icon appears in the system tray, but the thing only shows up a minute later
- my system recovery is "not able to protect my computer," and restarting does nothing
- actually, when restarting or shutting down Windows, it stops at where it only shows my desktop background and cursor [which is still able to move] and nothing else after that, so i have to hold the power button and force it to shut off
- when I right click the desktop and click on "Properties..." [or something similar to this action] it doesn't show up at all, and whenever I try to open any application after that, they don't even load at all either

Things i've tried to get rid of these problems:
- Virus scan with avast!, a couple viruses found and fixed, but nothing changed.
- disk clean up, nothing changed
- registry clean, nothing changed
- CURRENTLY defragging my C drive, hope something changes..

Anyone know what the heck's going on!?
Anyone got any suggestions on what to do next?
Anything helps and would be greatly appreciated!
 

Answer:Apps not starting properly, sys. recov. doesn't work, can't shut down properly, etc..

no replies yet?

anyway, just stopped by to say that when shutting down, it takes forever to get to the "Saving your settings..." screen, and that's where I decided that it stops and nothing else after that.
Defragged my C drive, still no results besides the computer feeling a bit smoother-running o_o

I just got thinkkpad T570 (512 ssd, core i7, windows 10 pro, 16 ram, UHD).Usually the movement of touchpad is perfect, when I just move the point with doing nothing.  However, when I open pictures, setting and access to websites ( even this website), touchpad, trackpoint adn mouse are getting slower, does not move seconds, and losing the cursor, and moves sort time, this happens constantly, then eventuall, the cursor keeps freezing. I tried to move touchpad, track point and mouse, moreover, typing keyboard, nothing happens. but when I turn it off, into sleepying mode, and turn on. Then it works.Is there any solution to this issue?

Hi, I have a Lenovo Y520 with Win10 Home, and the drivers of the touchpad are by Elan.I've noticed that if I want to scroll a page with two fingers during press the left button of the trackpad, this not work.For example, if I want to copy a text from a webpage, the steps to do are: 1) hold down the left button (or double click and press); 2) move the finger up or down.If I wanted to replace step 2) with "scroll with two fingers", what should I do?I tried to editing the registry keys in "Computer\HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-xxxxxx\Software\Elantech\SmartPad", but I don't know where to put my hands.Can someone help me?

Update: Found the fix was already posted to the forum.  Just had to re-install Natural Touch.  Thanks!  Hello, I lost functionality of the Natural Touch button (the top button above the manual screen rotation button) on the left side of the screen.  I would like to get that button working again. I'm not sure when this happened as I only pressed the button when I initially bought the unit.  However, I think it may have happened after I upgraded from Windows 7 Starter to Windows 7 Professional. Thanks for your help!

Hello all
 
my first post here, so be gentle.
 
So I would like to change the behaviour of the 'scroll' button above the trackpad so it has the function of the middle mouse click.
 
So in other words: the button marked on the picture should act as middle mouse:

I searched the UltraNav options but could not find what I was looking for. As far as I could find, this button can only be used to scroll (in combination with the red button).
 
Thanks for your advice on this matter.

Answer:(Carbon X1) Use middle scroll button as middle click

So I bought a new Inspiron 15 5578 2-in-1 laptop and noticed I can only scroll using 2-fingers.
I want to be able to scroll with one finger but there are no settings to do this.
I want to be able to linearly scroll (up and down) without having to use 2 fingers. 
When I attach a USB mouse, the scroll works but I want to be able to do that without a mouse.
I have also toggled the scroll lock using the on-screen keyboard but still nothing.
Operating System: Windows 10

Although being launched at the start-up and visible in the system tray, X-Mouse Button Control seems to be in a deactivated mode, as the mouse commands don't work. When I exit the program and manually launch it, the commands function properly. I've tried both the portable and the regular installation, the behaviour of the program is the same.

What might the reason for it?

Hello,

Been through internet trying to look for an answer for my problem; how do I apply scrolling, pinching etc. on my touchpad?

Scrolling has never been working with this laptop (2 months old), and before now, even moving cursor was unreliable, since sometimes when launching the laptop the touchpad was completely dead and didn't react to anything.

Now there doesn't seem to be problems with that since I uninstalled touchpad driver and restarted my computer, but still scrolling doesn't work.

Troubleshooting for this problem has been no good.
They all lead you to first search for mouse in start screen -> mouse properties -> advanced and from there you can adjust mousepad settings.

I don't even have this tab on my laptop, while all other ones are there (buttons, pointers, pointer options, hardware).

How can I adjust touchpad settings on Satellite z30-A-1DJ?

Answer:Scrolling doesn't work on Satellite Z30-A-1DJ

The mentioned touchpad features should be supported by software as well as hardware.
There are different touchpad standards like Synaptics, Alps as well as Elan which support different features and different software.

In case such software isn?t installed or does work properly, the touchpad scrolling as well as other features would not be available.
It could be also possible that the built-in touch module would not support additional features.

From my knowledge the Satellite Z30-A-1DJ should be equipped with an Alps Electric touchpad and this touchpad is different and does not support the same settings liek Synaptic or ELAN touchpad.

However, as you mentioned, the additional settings for Alps Electric touchpad can be found in
control panel ? mouse ? last tab (Advanced)


If you want, you could try to install the Synaptics touchpad driver which was released for other notebook series like Portege Z10T-A

I?m not quite sure if this Synaptics software would work properly in connection with the Alps electric touchpad but its definitely worth a try.

So recently my laptop Pavilion DV6xxx updated the OS to Windows 10 64 bit and for some reason the touch pad works, but the scrolling system i.e. the designated scroll bar partition doesn't scroll any more. I have the Synaptics Pointing device software and my system is up to date in drivers yet it doesn't work. Please help as not being able to scroll with the touch pad is a huge inconvenience.

I have messed around with the ultranav utility, updated the latest trackpoint drivers, etc, scrolling actually works in the ultranav util "test scroll" but nowhere else. this is trackpad and trackpoint scrolling , in every combination of settings. Any ideas?

Answer:T410, Scrolling doesn't work at all

hey sez,could you uninstall the Ultranav software and then reinstall it again ?If doing this does not resolve it, then I suggest calling Tech support via the number listed in the link belowhttp://www.lenovo.com/contact/us/en/

I recently got a new laptop with Windows 8 and upgraded to Windows 8.1.

I absolutely love the two finger scroll feature. It's very convenient in web browsers and the start menu. However, it doesn't always work, and I can't find a trend for when it works. It simply works sometimes and not others.

Where can I configure the settings so that I always have two finger scroll?

Answer:Two finger scrolling doesn't always work

Thru playing around I found that 2 finger scroll won't work if one finger starts off of the edge of the pad. Make sure that both fingers plant on the pad itself when starting a scroll. I operate my pad with my left hand and I had a lot of trouble accidentally hitting the left edge when I first got win 8. I long ago disabled whatever the left edge swipe was. The same might be true for the right edge for right-handers.

Currently 2 finger scroll is reliable for me. I guess it could also be a driver issue with your particular pad.

 Hi everyone, I currently own a T430S, and just recently the FN button on my laptop started to malfunction. It would work sometimes work but most of the times it doesn't register at all(refer to the video). Also I encountered another problem which is my laptop will wake up right away after put into sleep mode. This happens either when I put it into sleep mode or when I close my laptop(please also refer to the video). I have tried to reset my BIOS, tried unplugging my keyboard, but still no luck. Is there a way to fix this issue? This issue really has been bugging me for the past few days. I would appreciate any kind of support! Thank you!
