    I have the same problem but I also need a laptop with a modem and a DVD/Cd reader writer that is affordable and is 13-14". I have to have the little trackpoint/accupoint! I have found that the Toshiba Tecra models ( one that I have now) still have the accupoint and some of the Dell Latitudes E-6400 and E6500, (I think). of course, the Lenovo Thinkpads have them. HP Elitebook has a trackstick ( whatever that is). you might try CDW because I saw them advertise the Satellite Pros still with the accupoints.

Looks like Lenovo is the only one that makes them anymore. My Toshiba notebook has one but it's an older model. I don't think the ones they make carry it.

Mine has the same problem. I am puzzled by answers telling you to 'download the trackpoint driver...' etc. How are we going to download something when our laptop won't even turn on? That was the original question posted? Or am I missing something here???...

How to enable a touchpad

Fn+F6. An icon would appear on the screen to indicate if pressing it is turning it ON or OFF. In some Models, holding down Fn and tapping F6 would cycle functions from Touchpad ON -> Touchpad OFF -> Trackpoint ON -> Trackpoint OFF -> BOTH ON -> BOTH OFF (but not necessarily in that order).

I have just bought Lenovo ThinkPad Edge 15 0301jdu and there was no user manual included. The touch pad is new to me and there is a red button in the center of keyboard the purpose of which I do not know....

It's called a TrackPoint and it's a kind of steering mechnism for the cursor, like a mouse or a touchpad. You simply press/tilt it lightly in the direction you want the cursor to move. Here's more:

My thinkpad cursor keeps freezing. It'll work for a little while then freezes. I'm connected to my work via a vpn. Not sure if that's relevant.

I have had the same problem happen. Lenovo released software updates for the Trackpoint and Nav system, on as recently as November ( shortly after my problem started to happen). I updated my laptop with one of them and plan on updating with the remaining. So far, the problem has not happened.
Try them too. Let me know how it works out.

The pointer freezes or starts moving about without any reason, especially when my laptop is carried from one place to another

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

Hope that helps !

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.
