Just check in BIOS set up whether touch pad is disabled .

If it is disabled then change the status and also check in Ultranav in the Control Panel, and check the touchpad box to enable it.

Hop this helps .

    I found that the problem can be due to the palm rest region being pressed down my my palm:

    If I press the palm region up on the edge (as it flex a little bit when I use force), then the touchpad works fine even when the laptop is tilted. However, when I stop pressing up on the edge, especially after I have put my palms onto the palm rest to type again, then the touchpad stop behaving normally again

It is the small ribbon canle that connects to the touch pad, it is not well connected or broken.

When the touchpad connector is broken, on many Tinkpads you need to replace the whole upper panel and palm rest, by removing keyboard and upper panel, there is risk to damage the keyboard connector doing this.

Here you find movies on how to disassemble the T60.
You need to chose system dissembly, then movies, then skip movies until you get the touchpad/keyboard removal.

Beat solution is taking the laptop to a repair shop and having the problem fixed.

    Regarding the drivers, laptop touchpads work even without additional driver, even if with no extra feature.

    When touchpad does not work at all, there is a fault.

    I post my previous comment:

    Can you see my comment?

    It is not a drivers problem, if it does not work at all is either hardware fault or bios problem.

    If you did not touch bios settings, then it is an hardware fault, nothing to do with drivers.

    Hope you can read this, check my previous comments, and forget about the drivers.

    Sorry missed that part that you arleady downloaded the UltraNav :)

    How about this one:

    Verify that the internal TrackPoint or UltraNav is set to Automatic or AutoDisable.

    Note: This setting will automatically disable the TrackPoint and UltraNav if an external PS/2 interface mouse is attached before startup.
    To verify the setting in the BIOS for ThinkPad A, G, R, T, and X series systems

    1. Turn on the computer.
    2. Look for the message in the lower left area of the screen. If it says: "Press F1 for BIOS Setup Utility", press the F1 key. If it says: "To interrupt normal startup, press the blue Access IBM button", press the blue Access IBM button.
    3. Double-click Start setup utility if available.
    For some systems, you may need to click Continue at the Rescue and Recovery Predesktop area screen, and click Access BIOS and Yes.
    The BIOS Setup Utility menu will be displayed. If a password prompt appears, type the correct password.
    4. Select Config and then click Keyboard/Mouse. The setting for the TrackPoint and UltraNav touch pad should be Automatic or AutoDisable.


    To verify the setting in the ThinkPad Configuration utility:

    1. Click Start, select Programs, and look for ThinkPad, Access IBM or ThinkVantage.
    * If ThinkPad is in the list, select ThinkPad, select ThinkPad utilities, and then click ThinkPad Configuration.
    * If Access IBM is in the list, select Access IBM and then click ThinkPad Configuration.
    * If ThinkVantage is in the list, select ThinkVantage and then click ThinkPad Configuration.
    2. Click the TrackPoint icon


    or UltraNav icon.


    3. Select Automatic or AutoDisable.
    4. Verify that the UltraNav and TrackPoint are set appropriately (Enabled or Disabled), by clicking Mouse properties and then the UltraNav or TrackPoint tab.

My scroll key on the right side on the touch pad is not working lenovo g570


One of two things. You may need the utility driver installed, typically the UltraNav Driver. Or you can try switching on the function in the ultranav tab in your mouse properties in the control panel.

I have an old IBM t60 Thinkpad I am trying to (clean) install XP home edition. The OS is installed but I have no internet connection. I am missing drivers for Network controller, PCI device, SM Bus...


You can try to use an Ubuntu 10.10 CD, and when you are done with the install you will have access to the web without needing any drivers.
Then go to the web and download your XP drivers if you still need to.
Would recommend you use Ubuntu as it is much better OS than XP and runs great on T60 very solid.

I have lost my original recovey disk IBM Thinkpad T60 .. how to get it


What is the problem with your Thinkpad?
If you have a Windows installation disk, you can re-install Windows on the thinkpad without the recovery disk.
The Recovery disk containd the Thinkpad device drivers, but you can download these drivers from the IBM/Lenovo WEB site,

Please Note -
The same model ThinkPad can have different types of network, video and audio drivers and unless you know exactly which one is installed in your ThinkPad, you need to download all the drivers and install each driver until you find the right driver.
When you download the drivers, write down the device driver and it’s file name so you have a record of which driver you are installing and which directory the unzipped files are located on your hard drive.
Go to the IBM/Lenovo WEB site - support/download page and download the latest Windows XP or Vista device drivers for your model computer, Use this link: -
http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/product.do?template=%2Fproductselection%2Flandingpages%2FbrowseByProductLandingPage.vm&sitestyle=lenovo&brandind=10&validate=true
You can download the various drivers and then you click on and run the various driver files, they will then unzip and expand into a sub folder on C:\drivers Then install the various drivers from this folder (run the set-up file).

Voila, your Touch pad should be working then.
