    Accepted Solution

    The mouse is part of the keyboard and may be defective. Keyboards on Thinkpads are easily replaceable and in a new(ish) machine, Lenovo will often do it for free.

    I would first remove the keyboard and re-seat the connectors carefully. Put the keyboard back in and see if (a) it works, and (b) if not, does it look OK in Device Manager (probably not).

    does this model have a button to disable the touchpad, if so press the button may reenable the touchpad.
