Thinkpad 760xl gave me a trackpoint error.

I unplugged the keyboard connector and reseated to no avail.

Then plugged in a serial mouse, and the mouse works during tests, but
it will not work when I finally get the machine to boot using F1 on

How do I get this mouse to work in the interim while awaiting a new

Can a thinkpad be use with no pointing device at all, like enabling the
cursor keys or something like that?

This may be a dumb question but I need the assistance of the group to
either get the mouse going or somehow use without a mouse at all.

What do you mean by 'tests'?  Check for a BIOS setting that enables
mouse instead of trackpoint.
