Hi,

It could be that the drivers are not installed for the pad, or that there is a hardware issue.

I would suggest plugging in a USB mouse which will be picked up by windows and will allow you to be able to navigate around to etermine the root cause of the pad not working.

Check device manager (my computer -> manage-> device manager) to see what the status is on the pad hardware and what drivers it thinks it is using

Hope this helps - if so, please leave feedback. If not pls let me know and I'll try and help some more!

Have managed to lock my mouse pad? how do i unlock it?


If you accidentally lock the mousepad. Press FN and F6 at the same time to unlock. You should see a pop up window on the lower right hand corner. Pop up window should be square, if you can see a square with a slash on it. Press FN and F6 again. If you cant see the pop up window. Uninstall and reinstall lenovo energy management and try again the function key.

Try an external mouse and if that works your touchpad is bad and needs to be replaced.
