X250 Trackpoint STIFF

#1 Post by elray » Tue Oct 15, 2019 11:40 am

My "new" X250 came with a bad keyboard, so I ordered and installed a new one.

After installing Windows 10, Lenovo Vantage, and the Synaptics driver, setting the speed/sensitivity to maximum, the trackpoint is still horribly stiff, requiring at least 5X more force than any other Thinkpad I can reference. "Pushing" upward is also quite stiff, but not enough to junk the machine (hint: touchpad fans, there may be a sale forthcoming.) The condition is the same or worse with Live distro tests.

Do I have a bad X250 keyboard? Or are they all like this?

If so, does the same problem affect X260 and X270?
