Hi fay bart...
Your mouse driver files are corrupted
Go the following webpage and download the drivers you need to reactivate the mouse button
1...TrackPoint driver for Windows XP, 2000 - ThinkPad
2...TrackPoint Accessibility driver for Windows 98/SE/Me/NT/2000/XP/XP Tablet PC Edition 2005 - ThinkPad
Please take time to rate me
have you installed all the device driver for the hardware of the notebook? if not run all the device software including the driver for the wireless adapter, it will not appear if it is not windows compliant you have to provide the drivers
this is not a software driver issue... many IBM and Dell laptops that have the 'trackpoint" aka pencil eraser head between the G and H keys of your keyboard that control your mouse cursor cause this problem
If your laptop has the TOUCHPAD and the TRACKPOINT cheap fix OPTION #1) is to remove the keyboard and cut the ribbon cable that attaches to the trackpoint. Voila ! Problem solved if you never use the trackpoint (most people use touchpad instead anyways) or you can use external mouse as well. Next option is more realistic for most people...
OPTION #2) Buy a new keyboard cheap on eBay. Search: IBM T42 keyboard. Easy to replace. See this link, easy for even a novice http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/MIGR-46515.html
Hi there. Its something to do with the trackpoint, possibly the cable has become loose.
* If an emergency power down is made by switching the system off during
or while an application is open, then immediately switching the system
on creates a 8611 error. * Repeatedly turning power off and back on without properly shutting down or allowing the system to shut itself down.
Solution Wait at least 6 seconds or longer after shutting down the system or before restarting to correct the 8611 error. See if that gets rid of the error, if not it could be a loose cable to the trackpoint.
The problem is in the trackpoint itself, it is defective. The fix is to either disable the function of the trackpoint through software or by physically disconnecting it.
Disabling through software can be done usually through the BIOS or in the Control Panel in windows. If there is no way for you to disable it then you have to remove the keyboard and cut the connector that is coming from the trackpoint control board. Make sure that you do not cut the keyboard cable. The trackpoint cable is usually about 4 wires thick and is seperated from the thicker keyboard cable. The only other thing to do is to replace the keyboard.
