Using an external mouse works flawlessly, but when I use the internal trackpoint buttons a couple things are wrong.
1. The right click button only works once after boot, then stops working completely. Sometimes if I haven't clicked it for a while it will work on the first try. Sometimes if I repeatedly press it, it will appear.
2. Drag and drop just doesn't work. Attempting to drag and drop anything causes whatever I'm dragging to be stuck to my cursor, with the only solution being to click the esc button.
These problems don't just occur on my High Sierra install, they occur on every install I've done since updating the BIOS. Windows 7, Linux Mint, Pop OS, XP and more.
I'm considering downgrading my BIOS to a previous one and forgetting about running High Sierra. I work at my desk a lot with a mouse and keyboard which isn't a problem, but sometimes I want to work in bed as well and this makes it completely impossible.
Let me know if you know of a way to possibly fix this while maintaining the current BIOS. Thanks!

Try BIOS F9 (for default settings), then F10 and reboot.

Yeah that was one of my first troubleshoots after learning my right click was being funky. I've since switched bios with no luck...
I ended up just disabling the trackpoint all together (even though I love the trackpoint) and am using the touchpad for now because it works fine by itself. I've done pretty much all the tests I can do without extending above my technical skills. Like I said, last thing I can think of is to buy a new keyboard but I don't want to waste $30 in case its an internal problem.
Thanks for the reply tho!
