Spectre x360 touchpad

Q: Spectre x360 touchpad

hi i recently bought HP Spectre x with highest specs an d i'm facing some real serious issues with the touchpad clickpad as many others in this forum and reviewers pointed out the clicks are not being recognized In my case I'd say it is around of the clicks don't get registered and I have to click again to make it work That is really frustrating and enough to make me come here and post this question I really like the laptop and this is exactly what I've been looking for but this clickpad is a real deal breaker I followed some suggestions on this forum and also tried some troubleshooting myself since i Spectre touchpad x360 myself is a support engineer but Spectre x360 touchpad to no avail I changed the synaptics settings to try and remove too much intelligence from the Spectre x360 touchpad touchpad and at least get the basic functionality right but i continue to miss the clicks I also tried replacing the driver with synaptic one but the problem continues which tells me that it is something related to the hardware piece than the software driver can someone here please help me with this if i hadn't liked the laptop i wouldn't bother posting here to try and find a solution i'd simply get rid of it and go with lenovo yoga pro or something else but this laptop has really high build quality and classy looks but probably killed by this buggy piece of hardware nbsp

Just ruled out malware in other section of this forum. Laptop's integrated keyboard suffers intermittent lock-ups for no apparent reason (sometimes works, sometimes doesn't, right now, doesn't). Touchpad seems deactivated (tried FN + F7 in case of accidental disable, but that's not the case), every option related to touchpad are grayed out in 'mouse' menu (config panel). Before malware check-up,tried system restore to last week, all problems were still there, so I reverted back. I have to use visual keyboard to type. Have to work with external mouse because touchpad doesn't work. Tried reinstalling touchpad drivers from Acer website, and didn't work. Computer worked perfect a few days ago.

Sounds like you may have some system files corrupt. This can occur after a lot of spyware. Some times just removing it dose not correct what it has already messed up. Your best maybe to back up your personal stuff. Then do a factory reinstall.

I have a toshiba satellite pro and usually use the touchpad with my right hand rather than a mouse. I attached an external mouse for my daughter to use, and changed the settings to lefthanded. I disconnected and shut down. Since then, each time I restart the computer, the touchpad does not work correctly. Instead of double clicking on the touchpad, I have to rightclick. I have to go into mouse settings on control panel, and move the double click speed, click apply and then the touchpad works correctly then. Why is this? Please help.

A:My laptop touchpad is not working properly

Are you referring to the the right side scroll bars on laptop touch pads that allow you to scroll up and down pages?

Try updating the driver for your touchpad and see if that helps.

HI,
I have this Hp Probook 4540s i3(windows 8, 64bit) for about a year and it was working fine but recently, I noticed that it had a problem. At times, the touchpad would freeze and I wouldnt be able to use it for a few seconds. At first this wasnt much of a problem due to the fact that I had an external mouse but now im travelling more often so this became a problem. I was jsut wondering if anybody knew what caused this problem and if they do, if there were any quick fixes towards it.
 

A:Touchpad Freezes

Go to the HP driver support for your model and get the latest drivers for the touch-pad.
You might have to find out who makes that touch-pad and get it from the manufacturer
Or see if there is Windows update for it.
Did you update to Windows 8.1 yet?
Also there are known issues with Windows 8 and some touch-pads know working correctly.

A:Touchpad doesn't work

Hi Aarby,

Some computers have keyboard shortcuts which could be a separate key on the keypad or a combination of the Fn + any other Function key depending on the system model for enabling or disabling the touchpad. Since you have not mentioned the system model of your computer, some steps you may try are:

1.Go to Control Panel > Mouse > Device Settings>Click Enable (if disabled).

2.Check under Mouse Properties in Control Panel>Hardware>Mouse. There may be a check-box for Disable Touchpad/Pointing Stick when external USB mouse is present. If this is checked and you connect an external mouse to your laptop, the touchpad may be disabled.

Additionally, we recommend you check the system manual or try some of the steps mentioned in the link below.

Click on this Microsoft link to troubleshoot Mouse, touchpad, and keyboard problems in Windows: http://dell.to/1arqGvz

Hope this helps resolve the issue. Please reply if you have further queries.

Thanks & regards,

So I needed to disable the touch pad on my laptop and the icon in the task bar was not there like it was, I needed to re-install cause things were getting slow everything works like it should now. But I went to the Control Panel and went to where you would disable the touch pad and the disable button is grayed out. I don't know why and I want to disable it.

(Attached is what I see when I get to the mouse from the control panel)

I have a Toshiba Satellite E205, Win 7. A small icon with a picture of the touchpad keeps appearing in the middle of my screen, quickly followed by a similar one, but with a red circle. The mouse or touchpad then freezes briefly. By looking in Task Manager, Processes, I see that this is accompanied by the appearance of touchpadED.exe, which then disappears from processes. I think it started when I unplugged a USB hub with mouse and keyboard from my computer while it was still on. I removed and reinstalled the Synaptics Touchpad driver from Toshiba, ran virus scan and malware software, and cannot stop the process in Task Manager. How can I get rid of this problem??

Hi! First of all, as I couldn't find a cause, I didn't know where to post this thread. If I posted somewhere wrong, please, move it to the correct place. Thank you

Today, I was using my laptop normally when, out of the blue, my touchpad started to behave strange. It would not move around the screen by itself, but its functions were all messed up. I tried reinitialization, restoring the system, removing and installing the synaptics driver, removing the driver again and installing no driver. Nothing worked. In safe mode was the same. The "touch click", however, worked a little. The touchpad now can't be used.
It's Win7 Home Premium 64bit. I was using at that moment, Skype, Opera, Gom Player, iTunes, firewall Comodo, antivirus Avira, Yahoo widgets and other system softwares I can't remember.
What can I do?
 

A:Touchpad functions messed up

Yes that tpad need to be replaced. Drivers can only do so much. I have since 2005 and it acts so bad, but can't get parts for it. I just use one of those mini blue LED wireless mouse from MS or Logitech with the mini USB dongle. To fix your issue depends if you in or out of warranty. Cost and labor will add more than buy $40 buck or less wireless mini mouse. My 2010 Windows 7 64-bit one seems to act up already. I just got MS 3500 blue LED mini mouse to use with it. To send it back for repair wont' be cheap I would have to foot the bill to sent it back in on 15.6" Still tpad works but if I type to fast and the pressure from my palms is where the trouble is.

Hi,
I am thinking that maybe that is a 64bit, if so then you are having a driver conflict, i suggest that you make sure you have the right drivers from the Dell website for your Laptop, or check you Even viewer logs to see what could be the cause of that problem.
If that isn't the problem, then lets us know...

Okay, I'll keep this short. I know how to disable the touchpad clicker thing, so that it's only being used to move around. What I don't know is why it continues every so often to re-enable itself so that I must go through the whole process all over again.
Is there a way to disable this function completely?!

The laptop is a Toshiba Satellite.

You should be able to disable the touchpad in the bios but that will most likely disable the pad and the buttons but it should be permanent.

I have acquired a slightly used D620 however the touch-pad and track stick do not seem to be working at all. Neither of the buttons on the touch pad work either. My external USB mouse is functioning perfectly. I have reinstalled drivers from Dell Support, tried drivers from other models, and reinstalled Windows when I noticed the hardware manager wasn't even detecting the touch-pad at all. I also tried to change around the touch-pad options in the BIOS settings but nothing has led to success. My next step is to remove and reconnect the touch-pad and track stick/ keyboard. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks a bunch, in advance, for your help.
 

A:Dell D620 touchpad/track stick not functioning and not recognized

Solved

I opened up the laptop lifted the keyboard and noticed the poorly designed touchpad cable attachment system. It is so closely stuck to the palm rest/ keyboard boarder that it disconnects from the motherboard with the slightest lift of the palm rest. My guess that an inexperienced Geek Squad member probably cleaned out the unit and didn't bother to check for the attachment of the wire to the motherboard. Anyway, my problem is solved.

A:Dell 1525 touchpad

Fairly common problem in that model if the laptop gets rugged use.
Often that problem is caused by a small wire plug-socket becoming detached.
You can remove the bezel and keyboard, and reseat it and usually ahve success... if not, purchase a used bezel... because the operational chips are attached to the bezel electronics. In some cases you have to replace the keyboard and the bezel... total cost about $45 on eBay.

Satellite ls7008. I have a laggy mouse when moving it with the touch-pad only. Every 4-6 seconds it stops then goes again. This is also happening when using the arrow keys on the keyboard when scrolling in a long web page. Now I am noticing input lag while typing. It does not do this when using a USB mouse(the mouse lag only). I have tried to restore, uninstall drivers, install new drivers(synoptics and Toshiba ones) and it still does it. I tried with and without a battery. I Turned off virus protection. Nothing has changed the input lag yet. Wondering if I need to reinstall windows 7 64bit as this really annoys me.
 

A:Laggy touchpad pointer and scrolling

Hi . Have, or do you do any maintainence to Windows? With a problem like this, I would do some work on the registry, I use the Freeware program called 'Winmend registry defrag 1.3.4'. You can download it from www.winmend.com. It is a 'light' program, and unlikely to do harm (as some can). Do a backup of your current registry as a safety precaution, before the scan. Also try 'CCleaner', as a general scan of your system to clear up any further 'problems'. I use these programs often, along with 'Auslogics Disc defrag 3.1.'

A:Satellite L350-210 touchpad not recognized

You could try, in device manager, right-click on 'Mice and other pointing devices', choose 'uninstall'. Then re-boot. Windows should discover the touchpad again. I was asked to look at an Acer Aspire which had the same problem. I think I would lift up the keyboard, see if it's possible to find the plug from the touchpad to the motherboard. Unplug it. Re-boot windows. Shut down. Plug it back in, re-boot Laptop and if all is well it should force windows to find it again and install the drivers.

A:Laptop touchpad and keyboard problems

Zif cables

You need to be really careful when taking apart a notebook..the ZIF cables (Zero Insertion Force) sometimes called Flex Cables are extermely fragile...the connector on the motherboard has little slides that you pull out, then remove the ZIF connector, the cable will go in/out with "Zero Force" To install make sure the slide is OUT, then put the ZIF cable in and you push the slide back in...cable connected. If you just pull these cables out and try to force them back in you will shred the ends and the keyboard/touchpad/etc won't work.

if only SOME of the keyboard does not work, like a small area, maybe the 1, 2, q, w, a, keys..that means the ZIF cable is not inserted all the way...reseat the cable and it should work fine..

Many of these cables can be bought for $5 or so on eBay if you need to replace them...I have bought several of them from a guy..I can get his information if you need it.

Hi

i've got a problem with my touchpad on Acer Aspire 3690, couple days ago it completely quit working, touchpad + the left and rigth keys on it and the scroll key.
When I looked into device manager I saw the exclamation mark beside the SCSI/RAID host Controller. I tried to update or something with that driver with wizard but no result, and also as I turn my laptop on, that wizard turns on and offers me to install it, but at the end it not finds any driver. I re-installed the Synaptic but it didn't help.

Thanx for help in advance. Any suggestion will be appreciated

Here is the link to your Acer Aspire 3690 Touchpad drivers. If its an driver problem that should solve it.

Remove old installation of synaptic & reboot & reinstall.

I hope someone can help me with this weird problem
My laptop is Satellite U405-S2833 with 1.2 GB Core 2 duo.

It came with a Vista home premium operating system, but I later added XP professional to it (Dual booting)
About 10 months ago, the touchpad as well as the 3 USB ports stopped functioning. Two of the ports will not recognize peripherals, but could power the items, while the third was totally redundant. Since then, I have been using an express card USB adapter for attaching an external mouse and other peripherals. The problems were occurring in both operating systems.
Laptop technicians have had a look at it to no avail.

Here comes the weird part: On occasions when I had to repair or install windows, the pad works perfectly, only to stop working after windows has fully installed.

NB: I have updated the BIOS to the latest version (4.0). Windows 7 RC also exhibited the same problem

I apologize in advance if this has been answered elsewhere. I have Satellite a105-s2194. The keyboard and touch pad stopped working after I edited my registry to fix my dvd burner. I've tried a usb mouse. It shows up but also doesn't work.I can't do a system restore without a working mouse or keyboard so I'm kind of stuck.
I checked the BIOS and everything is as it should be. Keyboard works in BIOS and system utilities menus.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank!
 

A:Satellite keyboard/touchpad unresponsive

BIOS provides USB support before Windows starts which is why it works in BIOS but not Windows.

I suggest the best place to start is recovering your files/folders. You can probably just skip to Step 2 for your case See How to recover your folders/files when Windows won?t boot

Then you can comfortably try fixing your computer (which might need a full reformat/reinstall)

Laptop is an advent So I ve got problems with my touchpad in as much as it doesn t work To make it work I have to go into the device manager and uninstall the Synaptics PS Port Pointing Device then restart and it works fine Only problem is Windows automatically detects it when you restart and the next time you restart it finishes the installation and then the touchpad doesn t work again I can t disable only uninstall issues Laptop touchpad I can disable it through the mouse options in Control Panel but that doesn t make any difference I ve tried using updated synaptic touchpad drivers and none at all just the generic one s Windows installs even did a fresh install of XP I m giving it to my dad anyway but that didn t make any difference either The BIOS is pretty limited and there is nothing Laptop touchpad issues resembling legacy USB support so I can t turn that off I also found two files under Driver Details through Device manager C WINDOWS system drivers i prt sys and C Laptop touchpad issues WINDOWS system drivers mouclass sys deleted both of those files just to see if it would make any difference but it didn t do anything As soon as you restart it Laptop touchpad issues doesn t work again I m getting around it at the moment by disabling the plug and play service but that s not a fix my dad will be mainly using it for watching movies and tv on the go so needs the plug and play functionality for external devices The laptop is fairly new a few months and I haven t even been using it the touchpad for like - months it s been on my desk being used with synergy and my normal mouse keyboard I only noticed it didn t work when I went to take it somewhere the other day and I couldn t use the touchpad That s why I wasn t too bothered about reinstalling XP as I thought maybe the synergy installation had messed with it somehow but even after a fresh install it s the same The touchpad works just not when Windows installs what it wants to to get it to work if I could somehow stop just the auto update for the touchpad it would be fine Any thoughts nbsp

With regards to your problem, it sounds like a hardware problem, but you could try going to the Sony website and downloading the latest drivers that they have for the touchpad and keyboard, this may solve the problem.

Sony's aren't always very reliable so if installing the drivers doesn't work, it sounds like it's faulty I'm afraid You could use an external mouse and keyboard, but that kind of defeats the object of having a laptop, really.

A:Laptop - keyboard, touchpad, pcmcia and usb malfunction

No solid ideas to offer you. I suggest that you experiment a bit.

Run on battery only (since it is capable of being fully charged).
Use external keyboard and mouse. Some laptops accept a ps2 y-connector so both can be used at the same time. Mine does not, as an example.
I have not tried USB connectivity for either the KB or the mouse. While battery is considered a stable power source, remove the battery and run off the adapter. This will check out the filter & regulator.

Yours symptoms are many. However, replaceable parts on a laptop are hard to do without professional help. Opening the case & looking for loose or pinched cables may not be worth the risk/hassle.

Hook-up and PS/2 keyboard and mouse to your laptop if you have that hookup or use USB Keyboard and mouse. You need to get into the BIOS and see if the keyboard and mouse is enabled.

Also by doing it this way you can also see under XP what happen. Try removing the battery from the laptop and try it again...

take a look in device manager to make sure there are no little yellow !'s. Windows will detect the touchpad as a genric ps/2 mouse, but to make it work properly you'll need to get the actual driver from your laptop manufacturer's website, what brand is it?

Does anyone know if there's some kind of software that changes the way a touchpad (on a laptop or whatever) is used.

I'd like to be able to "flick" the cursor around the screen, if that makes sense. A bit like how you "flick" through things on the iphone.

That would be awesome!
 

A:Touchpad Software

Your laptop touchpad software is available from your manufactures support page (drivers page)

Once installed, it will be found either in Control Panel, or in the start programs group.

Some of these touchpad programs are better than others.

A:Linux + touchpad = weird browser effects

Sounds like your touchpad is configured to have horizontal scroll "wheel". You probably need to edit X server settings and/or install Synaptics Touchpad driver.

Type man synaptics in command prompt to see more information about the settings.

Hello,

I am having a problem with one of my families laptops. It is Gateway MT6729 Laptop with Vista Home Premium. The laptop is only 3 months old. When I boot into OS my "Synaptics Pointing Device" is not behaving properly. My standard L-click acts as a R-click and my R-click does nothing. When I diseable the "Synaptics Pointing Device" the L-click is L-click, buy R-click does nothing. Here what I did allready:
-No virus.
-Vista fully updated.
-Drivers updated.
-Restore point did not work.
-Safe Mode has the same effect.
-External devices work fine.

In any case the R-click does not work. I have kind of pushed the idea away that the Button is malfunctioning, since this is 3 month old laptop, but who knows...

I am dumbfounded?!?
 

A:Problem with Touchpad on Vista Home Premium Laptop

Download the latest drivers, and the previous versions. The Gateway support site works well.
Uninstall the old Synaptics software... even to the point of using something like RegClean to get ALL evidencel out of the registry.

Also, Gateway tech support people are still very good. Talk to them on the phone before you do anything more drastic to protect your warranty.

You should have a drivers and utilities CD,if it`s a new dell.Choose the custom test option,and look for something related to your problem.It might be just a matter of re-installing the drivers.

Hi y?all,
Lately i have been dealing with a lot of under performance of my notebook. The cause of that is of all the ads which are constantly popping up while browsing.
Therefore, I have been searching the web for tips and tricks/solutions to get a rid of these pop ups, however with no success.
So now I found this new forum page, and my question is: How can I get a rid of these pop ups and boost up my notebook (i7 processor) performance. Should I reset my laptop and restore to factory settings?
Thanks
Milton

Every time I shutdown and restart I have to go into Options and turn off Tapping.
I must goto Settings -- Devices -- Mouse and TouchPad -- then:
Click on "Additional Mouse Options" at the bottom (grayed but still active)
Click on "TouchPad settings"
Click on "TouchPad settings" (the button) and turn off "Tapping"
Then click on "Apply"

I also clicked on the [reset device] button. (Did not seem to do anything, did not help)

Hi I was hoping someone here could maybe give me some insight to a problem that has just occured. Earlier today I was using my laptop and there wasn't any problems at all, but I have returned to the laptop now and find that the cursor is not responding to anything I do on the mousepad.

I also noticed that the symbol for internet connection is showing as if it has never been connected, with a red cross through it. I restarted the laptop in safe mode to see if this helped, and the cursor responded to my actions using the mousepad, however when I restarted the computer, this time in its normal state, the same problem reoccured.

Really hoping someone can give me some insight to the problem and a possible solution, first time this has happened

A:Mouse touchpad not working and loss of internet connection

On my Dell laptop, there is a key-combo that turns the mouse pad on and off.

I can also turn the wireless radio on and off via a switch on the side of the laptop. Some laptops use keys for that, others use software and some have no easy way to turn off the wireless radio.

Hello. Long time no see. My mom has a Gateway mx-3230 laptop that she only wants to use a mouse on. The computer has had a fresh install of XP SP3, and I'm unable to disable the touchpad so she will only have mouse control of the computer.
 
I've gone into device manager and seen that the only things listed under mouse is the usb mouse that she wants to use, and an item for Microsoft PS2 device. The mouse can be disabled using the "usage" feature at the bottom of the screen. But when I switch to the PS2 listing, "usage" is ghosted out and I can't change that setting. So presently, both the mouse and the touchpad are functioning.
 
I'm not at her house right now, and can't run SIW etc. to find out the particular touchpad info. Until I can do that, does anyone have a suggestion for disabling only the touchpad? Thanks. Jim

A:Disable touchpad in XP

Laptops which don't automatically disable the trackpad when you plug a mouse in usually have a 'switch' in the form of the Fn key and one of the 'F' keys. Look for a key that has a representation of a mouse or a trackpad on it or even both. I've seen all three variants. And I can't tell you which 'F' key it will be on, this is one aspect of keyboards that is not standardised !
 
When you do find the relevant key, press and hold the 'Fn' key and press the relevant 'F' key at the same time, then let go. You should get some notification that the trackpad is disabled and it should stay that way until you press the same key combination to switch back at some future time.

Unless I'm missing something, this is a touch screen which you use your finger to navigate rather than a mouse.  If you are more comfortable using a mouse you can use a usb type with the laptop.  I personally don't know anyone who uses a stylus on a laptop touch screen.
 
Just out of curiosity, where did you read that you needed to use a "pressure pen"?

Have you tried cleaning your touchpad? Here's how:
 
Take a small cloth or paper towel.
 
Click the left or right key down and rub the key thoroughly. Try to get under the key a bit.
 
If still needed, take a toothpick, click the key and carefully rub the tooth pick beside the key.
 
Otherwise you may want to use a mouse, take it to the repair shop or follow another member's advice.

I used to have a lot of problems with the touchpad intermittently freezing; it then worked well for a while but is now misbehaving oddly.
 
The right and left buttons on the touchpad work normally, but instead of moving the cursor, trying to use the main part of the touchpad scrolls the screen up and down instead.  A USB mouse connected works normally.
 
It started yesterday.  Only thing I did was run AdwCleaner and delete a registry key it found (I think I had downloaded adware on mistake so I was cleaning it).  It started this behavior a little while later.
 
ScrollLock doesn't seem to be on and I have tried disabling and re-enabling the touchpad.

I have looked at mouse settings on the non-working touchpad account and can't see any setting that would affect this problem. The non-working account is my granddaughters and having to use a mouse for homework is not always handy (ie. laptop). If this can't be fixed I guess I can have her set-up a new account and try that.    Thanks in advance. mhoss49

A:Touchpad cursoron 1 account

Hi mhoss49
 
May I ask you what is your laptop brand and model? It can easily be found under the laptop, on a sticker, or by going in dxdiag. To do this, press on the Win Key + R keys and enter dxdiag then press on Enter. If you get a message with Yes or No, click on Yes and wait for the dxdiag window to load. You should have two lines called "System Manufacturer" and "System Model". If you could please give me these informations, it would help. Also, I need to know if you're using Windows 8 or Windows 8.1, 32 or 64-bits. You can find this by dragging the mouse in the bottom left corner of your screen, right-clicking on either the Windows logo (if you have Windows 8.1), or the small preview icon that will open (if you are on Windows 8), and from there, click on System. In the window that will open, you'll see which version of Windows you are using. I'll need both of these information as well.

Win 7, MSI 7200, Firefox 39....recently I have noticed increasingly that when I try to control my touchpad cursor to hove over a link or anything in a precise way, it is kind of jumpy. In fact, if I simply try to put my finger on the touch pad and hold the cursor still over some object, it moves on its own 1/8 to 1/4 inch. I ran Malwarebytes and it turned up nothing. I checked Device Manager and tried to update the Sentelic finger sensing pad driver and it said it was up to date....no yellow triangle on anything in Device Manager. Any help appreciated.

I have a Dell M1530 running Vista Home Premium 32-bit. My touchpad \ mouse has stopped working. The pointer just sits in the middle of the screen. I even tried to use a USB mouse, that didn't work either. I got the newest driver for it from Dell, installed it & still nothing. When I check for it in the Device Manager the Mouse \ Touchpad has a yellow ! on it. Checking the driver for it, it says windows can't load the driver cause it is corrupt or missing (code 39). I can barely navigate around on it! Please help me! I just want my mouse \ touchpad to work again! I don't want to have to do a complete reinstall, I'm not that smart & would probably mess it up.

A:Dell M1530 Touchpad / Mouse

Hi, Any issue with the Touchpad driver or hardware would have no connection to the USB mouse problem. The problem if both are not working sound like a windows issue.With the USB mouse plugged in does it show up the Device Manager? It should show up and load drivers that are provided by Windows. Have you tested the USB ports to see if anything else plugged into them is working?Have You tried System Restore to go back in Time to when the Mouse / Touchpad worked? System Restore should be accessed by going to Start, All Programs, Accessories, System Tools, System Restore.Our Tutorial on using it is hereWindows Vista System Restore GuideIntroduction to System RestoreSystem Restore is a system recovery feature of Windows that creates snapshots, or restore points, of the state of your computer at various intervals or before you perform a certain task. These restore points can then be used to restore your computer back to the state it was in when they were taken. When these restore points are created, and restored, the only files affected are the Windows Registry, programs, and system files. Your data such as spreadsheets, documents, images, and music remain untouched between restores.You may be wondering why you would want to restore your computer to a previous point. The reason being that there comes a time in every computer user's life that they install a new program, install a new driver, or just turn on the computer and find it no longer works as it did the day before. You have no idea why, can't resolve the problems, and are left with two options. You can either backup your data, reinstall the operating system, and then reinstall all your applications or you can restore your computer to a previous snapshot in the hopes that the problems will now be gone. By using System Restore to restore your computer to a previously known working state you can save considerable time or money compared to reinstalling the entire computer.Good LuckRoger

Dell Inspiron Windows Vista Basic bit I ve been having problems with the touchpad on my Dell Inspiron off and on for about a month now Occasionally on startup it just doesn t work- the left and right quot mouse quot buttons do please forgive my complete lack of knowledge when it comes to the proper terminology I really don t know much about computer bits in general but the touchpad itself doesn t register any movement In the past I ve tried updating drivers though Windows tells me they are all up to Dell touchpad gone date and it never seemed to work anyway The only thing that ever got my touchpad back up and running was restarting the whole system So this problem cropped up again last night and I restarted the computer twice to no luck I tried again this morning and still nothing I went to the device manager in the Dell touchpad gone control panel with the intention of well I don t know what really but it was NOT my intention to delete the touchpad from my devices which I DID do accidentally I cannot for the life of me figure out how to get it back- and I need it because it s really spoiling the convenience of a laptop when I need to plug in my USB mouse all Dell touchpad gone the time I went to Dell Dell touchpad gone and tried downloading the drivers again hoping it would make the device reappear I was going to do a system restore but the earliest point I seem to be able to go back to is AFTER deleting the touchpad I have a backup OS disc and a backup Dell drivers amp utilities disk that came with the computer if worst comes to worst but I desperately want to avoid having to wipe the computer and begin again just to get this touchpad back Sorry for the long explanation I wanted to be thorough If anyone knows a solution I m pretty desperate- I would be completely grateful Thanks

Thanks in advance.  Touchpad works until I enter log in pass and fully boot.  Then can only use Blue Tooth mouse.  Updated touchpad drivers but no luck turning on touchpad.  With Vista it was as simple as turning Blue Tooth off.   Computer is Alienware m15X.  Any ideas?   Forgot to mention the Fn + F12  Key turns the lights on and off the touchpad but do not allow it to work.Solved it, if I disable the HID mouse in control panel then the touchpad works again.  Not very user friendly but it is a beta.  Everything thing else is working great.  Very happy

Devicemanager shows yellow triangle mark at:
- Synaptics PS/2 Por tTouchpad
- HID Keyboard (my ext. USB-KBD)

HI,
I have just upgraded from windows 7 to windows 10. everything seems to be fine till now apart from the touchpad.
The problem is that every time I press a button on the keyboard the touchpad stops working for about 4 seconds.
another things is that most buttons do that, but for example the ctrl, function, alt and windows keys don't cause this problem.

Any Idea what can cause this? and do you know any solutions please?? 
I tried updating the drivers for both keyboard and touchpad, but that didn't solve the problem.
It's very frustrating and I'm considering to goback to windows 7!

Many Thanks :)

I upgraded my Toshiba satellite to Windows 10 and ever since I have not been able to use the touchpad longer than 5 minutes after turning it on. I have been told to use my arrow keys and go to the control panel and then go to mouse and to Exon but my keys don't allow me to get there? I can get to the mouse setting but I can't get the the Exon Tab. I'm really confused and I use my laptop often, so I need help fast

Hi everyone. I made a mistake on a Toshiba laptop. I turned off the touchpad in Device Settings. Now the touchpad is dead & I don't have a mouse to navigate with. I need to restart the touchpad without the use of any mouse. Is there a way to navigate in Mouse Properties to Device Settings to restart the touchpad?

A:Need to restart touchpad using just keyboard.

hi well you could use the tab and arrow keys and the enter button to navigate to device manager.
