Part 1: Installation Instructions
Product Description
This IBM TrackPoint keyboard works with IBM and ISA-standard
computers that have 6-pin, mini-DIN, PS/2-style keyboard and mouse
connectors. The TrackPoint keyboard will not work with non-IBM
notebook computers. Two buttons below the Spacebar work similarly
to the buttons on a mouse. With the built-in TrackPoint pointing
device, you do not need a mouse. However, you have the option of
connecting a mouse to the mouse connector on the rear of the
keyboard.
Note: If you are attaching the TrackPoint keyboard to a ThinkPad
computer that does not have a docking station or port replicator, you
must purchase an IBM Keyboard/Mouse Connector cable. To order
the Keyboard/Mouse Connector cable, call IBM PC Direct at
1-800-PC-DIRECT, or contact your local computer store.
The keyboard also provides Press-to-Select and third-button scrolling
functions for Microsoft Windows 98, Windows 95, Windows NT 4.0
and IBM OS/2 Version 4 operating systems. However, the keyboard
will function as a standard PS/2-style keyboard and mouse for DOS
Version 5.02 or later, Windows 3.1, and IBM OS/2 Version 3. Any
earlier versions of these operating systems are not supported. For
more information on TrackPoint keyboard features, see “TrackPoint
Keyboard Features” on page 1-14.
The keyboard option includes:

TrackPoint pointing device is included in your ThinkPad computer.
After you install the TrackPoint device driver on a ThinkPad notebook
computer, the TrackPoint onboard pointing device on your ThinkPad
will be automatically disabled each time you start your computer with
the keyboard connected.
However, on a ThinkPad 600 or follow-on, or a ThinkPad 770 or
follow-on, you must use the following procedure so that the ThinkPad
TrackPoint is set to Auto-Disable:

Note: If the mouse you are connecting requires additional software,
the software must be uninstalled for the TrackPoint pointing device to
work properly. For instructions on how to configure the mouse to
function as a standard PS/2-style mouse, refer to the instructions
provided with the mouse.
You can connect an optional mouse to the keyboard. The mouse must
be PS/2-style with a 6-pin, mini-DIN connector. The keyboard does
not support any other style of mouse. When a mouse is connected,
you can use it or the TrackPoint pointing device or both.
To install a mouse, attach it to the round mouse connector on the rear
of the keyboard 1 .
The mouse is now operational.

Using the TrackPoint Keyboard
TrackPoint Keyboard Features
The TrackPoint keyboard has four main features:
1. A stick 1 near the center of the keyboard.
2. Two buttons 2 at the bottom of the keyboard.
The button on the left side is equivalent to a left mouse
button.
The button on the right side is equivalent to a right mouse
button.
3. Press-to-Select, if enabled, allows you to select an object by
pressing down on top of the TrackPoint stick rather than using a
left or right mouse button.
1-14
TrackPoint Keyboard User’s Guide
4. Third-button scrolling, if enabled, allows you to scroll using the
Shift key and the TrackPoint stick in many software applications.
However, scrolling might not work in every software application.
Note: The Press-to-Select and third-button scrolling functions are
supported only with Windows 98, Windows 95, Windows NT 4.0, and
OS/2 Version 4. For DOS Version 5.02 or later, Windows 3.1, and
IBM OS/2 Version 3, the TrackPoint keyboard performs as a
PS/2-style mouse and keyboard, and does not support third-button
scrolling and Press-to-Select.
The TrackPoint pointing device is very easy to use. The following
instructions will help you get started.
1. Place your hands in the typing position. Rest the heels of your
hands on something solid. Place either index finger on the stick.
Rest your thumbs comfortably above the buttons.
2. Press gently on the stick, in the direction you want the pointer to
move: away from you to move up the screen and toward you to
move down the screen. Think of the stick as an extension of
your finger. Press down only enough to keep your finger from
slipping. Remember that the stick does not move.
3. Find a movement speed that you can control. Do not press too
hard or the pointer will move too quickly.
4. Move the pointer slowly and directly to the target.
5. With your thumbs, use the buttons to select and drag as required
by your software, just as with any other pointing device.
6. Press down or tap lightly on the stick top to select an object if
Press-to-Select is enabled.
Part 1: Installation Instructions

will be slightly different from the instructions illustrated in this
section. However, OS/2 Version 4 supports all of the functions
described below.
Note: You must click on OK or Apply for new settings to take
effect.
Enabling Press-to-Select
When Press-to-Select is enabled, you can select an object by pressing
down on the top of the TrackPoint stick. Under the Press-to-Select
tab, place a check in the Enable Press-to-Select checkbox. The
Press-to-Select function also allows the enabling of Dragging and
Release-to-Select. To enable Dragging or Release-to-Select, place a
check in the appropriate checkbox.
Enabling Dragging
When this function is enabled, you can drag and drop with
Press-to-Select. Press down on the TrackPoint stick to grab the
object. Then, drag the object by moving the TrackPoint stick.
Drop the object by releasing the TrackPoint stick.
Enabling Release-to-Select
When this function is enabled, you can click simply by lifting
your finger quickly off the TrackPoint stick. Release-to-Select
can also help you make a double-click. When you move the
pointer onto an icon, and then lift your finger off the TrackPoint
stick, one click is made (Release-to-Select). Then, when you
press the TrackPoint stick again, the second click is made. The
result is a double-click.
You can use the slider to choose a comfortable pointer speed for
Press-to-Select.

wet, drop it, or bang on it.
Cleaning: To maintain smooth operation, occasionally clean the
keyboard and the TrackPoint cap with a soft cloth moistened with
water and mild soap.
Replacing the Cap: When the cap 1 on the end of the stick is
worn out, pull the cap straight off (do not twist) and replace it with a
new one. Spare caps are supplied with this option package.
Faulty Pointer Movement: Other equipment might cause electronic
interference that hinders the operation of the keyboard pointing device.
Relocate the equipment or move your computer. If the problem
continues, refer to Appendix A, “Help and Service Information” on

Product Warranty and Notices
The following warranty information applies to products purchased in
the United States, Canada, and Puerto Rico. For warranty terms and
conditions for products purchased in other countries, see the enclosed
Warranty insert, or contact your IBM reseller or IBM marketing
representative.
International Business Machines Corporation
Armonk, New York, 10504
Statement of Limited Warranty
The warranties provided by IBM in this Statement of Limited Warranty apply
only to Machines you originally purchase for your use, and not for resale, from
IBM or your reseller. The term “Machine” means an IBM machine, its features,
conversions, upgrades, elements, or accessories, or any combination of them.
Unless IBM specifies otherwise, the following warranties apply only in the
country where you acquire the Machine. If you have any questions, contact IBM
or your reseller.
Machine: TrackPoint Keyboard
Warranty Period*: One Year
*Contact your place of purchase for warranty service information.
Production Status
Each Machine is manufactured from new parts, or new and used parts. In
some cases, the Machine may not be new and may have been previously
installed. Regardless of the Machine's production status, IBM's warranty terms
apply.
The IBM Warranty for Machines
IBM warrants that each Machine 1) is free from defects in materials and
workmanship and 2) conforms to IBM's Official Published Specifications. The
warranty period for a Machine is a specified, fixed period commencing on its
Date of Installation. The date on your receipt is the Date of Installation, unless
IBM or your reseller informs you otherwise.
During the warranty period IBM or your reseller, if authorized by IBM, will
provide warranty service under the type of service designated for the Machine
and will manage and install engineering changes that apply to the Machine.
For IBM or your reseller to provide warranty service for a feature, conversion,
or upgrade, IBM or your reseller may require that the Machine on which it is
installed be 1) for certain Machines, the designated, serial-numbered Machine
and 2) at an engineering-change level compatible with the feature, conversion,
or upgrade. Many of these transactions involve the removal of parts and their
return to IBM. You represent that all removed parts are genuine and unaltered.
A part that replaces a removed part will assume the warranty service status of
the replaced part.
If a Machine does not function as warranted during the warranty period, IBM
or your reseller will repair it or replace it with one that is at least functionally
equivalent, without charge. The replacement may not be new, but will be in
good working order. If IBM or your reseller is unable to repair or replace the
Machine, you may return it to your place of purchase and your money will be
refunded.
If you transfer a Machine to another user, warranty service is available to that
user for the remainder of the warranty period. You should give your proof of
purchase and this Statement to that user. However, for Machines which have a
life-time warranty, this warranty is not transferable.
Warranty Service
Part 2: Appendixes
2-3
To obtain warranty service for the Machine, you should contact your reseller or
call IBM. In the United States, call IBM at 1-800-772-2227. In Canada, call
IBM at 1-800-565-3344. You may be required to present proof of purchase.
IBM or your reseller will provide certain types of repair and exchange service,
either at your location or at IBM's or your reseller's service center, to restore a
Machine to good working order.
When a type of service involves the exchange of a Machine or part, the item
IBM or your reseller replaces becomes its property and the replacement
becomes yours. You represent that all removed items are genuine and
unaltered. The replacement may not be new, but will be in good working order
and at least functionally equivalent to the item replaced. The replacement
assumes the warranty service status of the replaced item. Before IBM or your
reseller exchanges a Machine or part, you agree to remove all features, parts,
options, alterations, and attachments not under warranty service. You also
agree to ensure that the Machine is free of any legal obligations or restrictions
that prevent its exchange.
You agree to:
1. obtain authorization from the owner to have IBM or your reseller service a
Machine that you do not own; and
2. where applicable, before service is provided —
a. follow the problem determination, problem analysis, and service
request procedures that IBM or your reseller provide,
b. secure all programs, data, and funds contained in a Machine, and
c. inform IBM or your reseller of changes in a Machine's location.
IBM is responsible for loss of, or damage to, your Machine while it is 1) in
IBM's possession or 2) in transit in those cases where IBM is responsible for
the transportation charges.
Extent of Warranty
IBM does not warrant uninterrupted or error-free operation of a Machine.
2-4

The warranties may be voided by misuse, accident, modification, unsuitable
physical or operating environment, improper maintenance by you, removal or
alteration of Machine or parts identification labels, or failure caused by a
product for which IBM is not responsible.

YOU. IN THAT EVENT SUCH WARRANTIES ARE LIMITED IN
DURATION TO THE WARRANTY PERIOD. NO WARRANTIES
APPLY AFTER THAT PERIOD.
Limitation of Liability
Circumstances may arise where, because of a default on IBM's part or other
liability you are entitled to recover damages from IBM. In each such instance,
regardless of the basis on which you are entitled to claim damages from IBM
(including fundamental breach, negligence, misrepresentation, or other contract
or tort claim), IBM is liable only for:
1. damages for bodily injury (including death) and damage to real property
and tangible personal property; and
2. the amount of any other actual direct damages or loss, up to the greater of
U.S. $100,000 or the charges (if recurring, 12 months' charges apply) for
the Machine that is the subject of the claim.
UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES IS IBM LIABLE FOR ANY OF
THE FOLLOWING: 1) THIRD-PARTY CLAIMS AGAINST YOU
FOR LOSSES OR DAMAGES (OTHER THAN THOSE UNDER
THE FIRST ITEM LISTED ABOVE); 2) LOSS OF, OR DAMAGE
TO, YOUR RECORDS OR DATA; OR 3) SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL,
OR INDIRECT DAMAGES OR FOR ANY ECONOMIC
CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES (INCLUDING LOST PROFITS OR
SAVINGS), EVEN IF IBM OR YOUR RESELLER IS INFORMED
OF THEIR POSSIBILITY. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT
ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF INCIDENTAL
OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE EXCLUSION
OR LIMITATION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
