    MSIE: Internet Explorer v6.00 SP1 (6.00.2800.1106)

    I don't know if this is the right place to ask this question but here goes:

    For quite some time now my scroll button (I guess it's called the middle action button) has not worked. I've recently downloaded all the recent drivers for the touchpad/trackpoint and it hasn't worked. I open up the mouse properties box from the Thinkpad Configuration options, and under the Device Settings tab I click on the Synaptics TouchPad then click settings >> buttons. But under the buttons tab the only two options showing up are "left button" and "right button" but no "middle button" when before it used to be there. My question is, how do I get this middle button back?

    It seems a hardware problem. In that case, you should replace the keyboard who comes along with the mouse buttons.
