Question about IBM ThinkPad R40 2722 Notebook
I have an intermittent problem where the keyboard and navigator/ pointer freeze up. I use to think it was a memory problem but I have since found if I squeeze the base of the computer to the left of the inbuilt navigator pad everything comes good for a while.
Any ideas would be most appreciated
The problem is the motherboard. From years of fatigue, the lower left portion of the motherboard develops small cracks, most likely from lifting the computer from this side. I had this same exact problem and after talking to Lenovo tech support, replaced the motherboard. Problem solved.

Re-install the drivers.
Go to your "Device Manager" (Right click on ‘My Computer', select 'Properties', click the 'Hardware' tab, click the 'Device Manager' button. Click the "keyboard"). If there is some kind of a "Warning" icon superimposed on the 'keyboard' icon there is your problem!
Uninstall the DRIVERS for THAT DEVICE only.
Click on the faulty devise and hit the remove button, follow the instructions given by the program.
Shutdown, restart, the device will automatically reinstall by the "Found New Hardware" program.
Repeat for 'navigator/ pointer'.
