Make sure you have the UltraNav software installed.

If it doesnt work after that you have a hardware problem. Fortunately , it is easily replacable.

You can order it here.

And here are instructions on replacing it.

The right click on myT400 stopped working on both buttons

Its unlikely to be a driver problem but you can check it by plugging in a usb mouse. Not knowing what operating system you are using makes it difficult to fix. You should find the driver in the hardware settings in system. delete them and reboot without the usb mouse plugged in. If it is the driver then the mousepad will be redetected and the driver reloaded. If it works, great, if it does not then a new mousepad will be required.

re-installing the mouse/trackpoint driver then restarting the laptop usually soles this issue.

if you are running windows XP or 2000 then the driver can be found here for free download-

I have a t43 thinkpad. The lower touchpad keys are not working. Does anyone know where I can get the driver for that problem

There will be a function button on the keyboard to turn it on and off, look at all the f1 f2 etc keys and look for a mousepad symbol and press fn + that button.

Mousepad, right clicker problems on ibm thinkpad t41

you can try looking at the manufacturers website for a driver update to your trackpoint

Try turning off the tap to click option. This should resolve accidentally dragging things where they don't need to be.

Better option...if you're using this laptop at home just invest in a wireless mouse and set the laptop to disable the trackpoint when an external mouse is detected.
