How to Resolve and Fix UltraNav Trackpoint and Touchpad Issues
Most of the Trackpad issues are either related to the software/drivers or due to low quality hardware. It could also be simply due to the presence of particles or moisture on the trackpad. The trackpoint is specific to the IBM/Lenovo Notebook PC’s which are not normally found on other competitor devices. In this post I am going to talk about how to resolve and fix UltraNav Trackpoint and Touchpad Issues.
