Either touchpad or Trackpoint is malfunctioning-- the two share one PS/2 port, so when one misbehaves, the other is also affected.

What to try:

Disconnect the touchpad cable from the system board (the the battery and charger are disconnected). Consult the X230 Hardware Maintenance Manual for instructions. Turn on the laptop, and test the Trackpoint. If it works, then the touchpad is (probably) the cause. If not, then the Trackpoint itself is the cause of the issue.

The clicks of the trackpoint don't work with the touchpad unplug, but i have an other problem, when the ultra nav driver (on xp)is install, my trackpoint move like if the middle button was pressed (like a cursor of mouse).

is a short-circuit?
