I assume you are talking about the trackpoint ( red pad between G & H keys?

The trackpoint is not mechanical in the sense of a ball. If it has failed then you need to replace the keyboard.
If you are talking about the computer freezing up, all you got to do is do a hard shutdown and then reboot the system.
