My laptop touchpad stopped working?

Q: My laptop touchpad stopped working?

So one day, all of the sudden my laptop's touchpad started acting its own life, it didn't respond my touches as it should've, and this continued few times I used my laptop. Today when I opened the laptop again, the touchpad wasn't working at all. Driver issues? (This has nothing to do with win10, as I downloaded it like half a year ago and this problem started just today)

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi there,

Yesterday my touchpad just stopped working, although a external USB mouse does. I have restore my computer to an earlier point, ran a virus scan and uninstalled and then re-installed the synaptics driver. It still isn't working and I'm not really sure what to try next.

Thanks

Well... Thats about it. My left click was working and then all of a sudden. BANG. stopped. Moving the mouse with the touchpad and using the mousepad to left click still works as does the right click button on the touchpad. Any solutions?

A:Left Mouse Click on Laptop Touchpad stopped working

I assume you have checked your settings in Control Panel > Mouse Properties?

It will save a lot of time if you can determine whether this is a hardware problem or a software problem.
Try this: Download a copy of UBUNTU. Put this on a USB stick. Boot from the USB stick and choose to Run The Program (you do not need to install it on your hard drive). Then check to see if the mousepad works OK in UBUNTU. If it does then it is a Windows/Software problem. If it doesn't then it is a defective mousepad.

My HP Pavilion x360 just forced an update a couple days ago and ever since then I can't move my cursor. It shows up on the screen when I first start up my laptop but disappears when I'm forced to use my touchscreen because the cursor doesn't move. This happened when I first got my laptop back in december too but the problem eventually went away on it's own. However, it only took two days, I haven't been able to use the touchpad in about a week. I love the touch screen on my laptop but I would like to be able to use my touchpad too... Someone help me out please!

I bought a Lenovo laptop 6 months ago - 100-15IBD Laptop (ideapad). The touchpad (Elan Smart-Pad) has suddenly stopped working. I can move the cursor but I cannot right click, left click or double click. This has nothing to do with the Fn F6 toggle used to activate and deactivate the touchpad. The touchpad is activated and the device manager says that the device is working properly. I tried updating the driver and got a windows message saying that the best driver for the device is already installed.

Hi All,My touchpad no longer works.  It is no longer in the device list via control panel.  I used to run with the touchpad disabled if I had a mouse attached but this option has disappeared as I have no touchpad properties.  Obviously fn+F7 has no effect. Any help most gratefully receieved.Barrie JUST NOTICEDPursuing another similar discussion I saw a reference to HID Driver I2C being a cause of the problem.  This is list as a problem by Device Manager on my machine. The driver is the latest version but the following is listedThis device cannot start. (Code 10)A request for the HID descriptor failed. Can anyone interpret this for me?Barrie

What is the make and model# of your laptop?
Boot into Setup (Bios) go to Integrated Peripherals and look for Touch Pad, if it is Disabled, Enable it.
boot normally, and go to the computer manufacturers Support/Download drivers site and type in your make and model # or your service tag # and download the touchpad driver for your model.

If so, did you download such and install it?

A:touchpad stopped working after windows 10

Following a thread from earlier Microsoft forums, this worked for me yesterday to restore trackpad function. Go to the Acer driver page for your computer. Download the intel IO chipset drivers for Windows 8.1. Run the setup for the driver in "compatability mode" and install. You will need to restart the computer. The computer will then recognize the trackpad as a valid device. Then download and install the Synaptics (or Elan) driver for Win 10 from the Acer support page and restart. If the trackpad is not immediatley active on the restart, hit Function F7. At least this fixed it for me.

I have been running windows 10 for almost a year with no problems to my touchpad. Today it stopped working completely. I went into the device manager and it showed the touchpad still connected. I restarted my computer and now it is as if my touchpad does not exist at all. The drivers for the touchpad are installed and I checked for updates. Could it be that the connection inside the laptop has come loose?

So something changed from 8 to 8.1 that made the touchpad not working, any idea what?

My 4 mth old laptop touchpad clicks have suddenly stopped working. I've tried re-installing the relevant software although when opening I get a 'software not found' message. I've reset the Elan options to default too. The touchpad works fine for mouse scrolling but neither the left or right click pads nor the main pad clicks are working. I'm out of ideas now and am hoping it's not a hardware related thing. tbh the touchpad has never been brilliant. It would open a right click menu by itself although that stopped a while back. I'm going to try a system restore next. I'm just thankful I managed to find an old usb mouse  Just wondering if there is anything else I should try before ringing Lenovo technical support. Thanking you all in advance

I have a just over one year old (~14 months) Dell Inspiron 17 laptop with Win 8.1 (no touch) and of course it's out of warranty. The mouse simply stopped working, no cursor. I was able to use the touchpad but then that quit too in quick order.
I spent hours searching here and the interweb looking for possible fixes, so far no luck.
The worst of the issue is now I can't get past the splash screen to the login screen to access the repair/restore functions in Windows.
How do I access these when I can't even login to the computer?

I literally opened the box of my brand new custom HP Envy 17t laptop, went to 2 websites, walked away to find my flash drive, and came back to a touchpad that stopped working. I chatted with someone online who just sent me to a "resolutions" 800 number, and I have been on hold 1 hour 30 minutes. I watched the online video about hard resetting the computer when the touchpad stops working, but surely I wouldn't need to do this with a brand new laptop?!? (all the people with this issue in the support forum had the issue more than four years ago, and I am reluctant to try the hard reset since prior support requests on this issue are so old.)

Hi

My netbook is a Samsung n145plus and has 8.1 installed with all updates. (even if it's not officially supported but it works amazingly fine)

I've installed the officia Samsung Elan touchpad driver as it seemed to work fine (it's for Win 7) except when scrolling with the edge of the pad because a Elan window appears on the taskbar and was annoying so I installed a newer driver but for a gateway laptop it installed fine but it wasn't detected by Elan in control panel so I removed it.

Now both the keyboard and touchpad stopped working and Windows says code 19 for keyboard and code 10 for touchpad. A USB mouse works fine. I've reinstalled both with Device Manager without success. Now the netbook is almost useless
Thanks

After the latest chromeos upgrade (installed today) my trackpad works for a short time (minutes) then stops.  No response and pointer disappears.  USB mouse works fine.  Have powerwashed twice and the issue persists for both my account and guest. It was working perfectly before this update. Is there a way to fix it or remove this update?

Yesterday out of the blue the screen on my Yoga 700 went blank and I had to hard-reboot it when it didn't respond to anything. After that the keyboard, Touchpad and the charging doesn't work. External keyboards and mice work fine but not the inbuild ones. Does anyone have a solution for this?

Hi Acer, Today I saw a driver update through acer center app so I also checked Bios update if any on acer US download website. I was previously on Bios V 1.09 "Fixes PXE ROM Issues" and then updated to V 1.10 "Supports Elan Touchpad" which was released two days ago. Now, after this bios update, my touchpad has stopped working completely. Please fixx this asap and let me know the resolution. I am using Acer Aspire R14 (R5-471T-71W2) model ThanksNilay

Hi

My keyboard and touchpad stopped working out of nowhere (i think it was after windows updated???) and i can't seem to be able to fix it, i tried to reinstall the touchpad drivers and nothing changed, also i couldn't find the keyboard drivers.

is there anything someone can recommend me to do? I'm going insane with this laptop!

(The model is Satellite M50-A-118)

A:Satellite M50-A - ELAN touchpad stopped working

Identical problem here. Satellite M50-A-11Q. Allowed windows update and touchpad and keyboard drivers are disabled.

Using an external mouse to access - currently doing a system restore to before the latest update. This looks like a fault at Microsoft's end.

Will update once I have a definite solution.

UPDATE: Restore has temporarily fixed the problem. Disabling windows update for the time being.

I have been using both the touchpad and usb mouse together successfully for many months then first the touchpad stopped responding then 30 minutes later the pad buttons quit working.

I have been in control panel and made sure the touchpad is turned on, tried it with the mouse unplugged, nada.

A:Satellite C50-B-189 touchpad and buttons stopped working

Hi, this is due to the pad driver (which is bugged), just kill the process using CTRL+SHIFT+ESC AND THE TAB plus DOWN ARROW to navigate to the target process. I have to do this each starts.

From tomsguide (november 2014):





These fixes don't help, all that happens is, after some time, the touchpad fails again. While Toshiba works on this, I have figured out a quick, effective workaround. This is for my new Windows 8 Toshiba.
Press CTRL ALT SHIFT to get your processes to come up. Find the Touchpad "enhancer" process. End the process. Your touchpad will work fine until next restart at which point just repeat this step.
If you are struggling to end the process without being able to use your touchpad, I found a curious thing out. If you hold a mouse click down, you can move the mouse arrow with the touchpad just fine. Its a bit... inconvenient...but all you need to do this for is to end that process and after that you can use the touchpad normally.

Did you try to install the touchpad driver?
You can find the touchpad driver on the Toshiba EU driver page.

Additional tip: in some cases its possible to enable and disable touchpad in BIOS.
Please check this!

By the way: is an external USB mouse attached to the notebook? if yes, disconnect this and try to use the touchpad

I went to use my laptop today, and I discovered that the touchpad has stopped working. In fact, I was unable to even get past the sign-on screen, and if it weren't for the fact that I got a mouse arrow with a plug-in USB mouse, the laptop would be completely dead to me.

My son uses the laptop for Minecraft gaming, but I don't think that has anything to do with this. Even a reboot didn't change anything. I wonder if a Windows update screwed something up (again)? I'm at a loss. I'm not always where I can set up a physical mouse to use - and frankly I don't want to have to.

Any suggestions?
 

A:My Toshiba Satellite touchpad suddenly stopped working

Found the solution. When I pressed the F5 button (not Fn + F5), I got a popup that said "touchpad disabled." When I pressed it again, it said "touchpad enabled." I unplugged my USB mouse and tried again, and it's now working. What a screwed up design that allows a user to accidentally disable one's touchpad with an accidental press of the F5 key. Then you have to research the problem before figuring out the problem. Someone in the Toshiba laptop design department should be fired.

A:HP Pavilion Synaptic Touchpad scrolling stopped working

Hooray! Great news! I figured out what was causing the problems. It turns out that my friend had broken off one of the laptop keys, and in an attempt to get it to remain on the laptop, glued it back on to the keyboard, without telling me. I discovered this when I opened Wordpad to write some notes, only to find the 9 key displaying in an active line, like this: 99999999999999999

The key had been glued so firmly that it was permanently pressing as though someone were holding it down. As a result, the trackpad wouldn't scroll (as the 9 key also doubled as the right arrow key) and the BIOS would remain stuck on the initial boot screen until another key was pressed.

After removing the key, I scraped the dried glue off of it, reattached the plastic switch to the metal brackets on the keyboard so it snapped firmly back into place, and sternly lectured my friend about why superglue and keyboards do not mix.

Well guess what my mouse and touchpad stopped working again today, this time during a Windows update (rather than after) - and guess what... the "Elan - Other Hardware - ELAN Input Device" was one of the updates, same as last time.

The good news, for me anyway is that the problem was temporary this time. After forcing a reboot by a long press of the power key, mouse and touchpad functionality was restored after the updates finished installing.

EDIT - just to say that my touchpad customisations e.g. reverse direction of scroll, 3 finger press to launch browser etc. have all been lost. No big deal, just a nuisance

A:Satellite M50A - ELAN touchpad stopped working - again!

And as a follow up, having edited the registry to restore the functionality to launch my favourite browser with a 3 finger press (see another thread for reason for why I had to use regedit) I've had intermittent results.

I've now realised that the 3 finger "press" feature seems to have disappeared to be replaced with a 3 finger "touch". It's not documented that I can see, the registry key names have remained the same but pressing doesn't do anything while a lingering 3 finger touch does work.

One day my TouchPad stopped responding completely. I uninstalled the Synaptics SMBus TouchPad driver under Device Manager. After I restarted my computer, my TouchPad was working again with the older Microsoft TouchPad drivers that  were still there. I lost all the gesture functionality , and the TouchPad was sensitive and lagged significantly. Eventually Windows automatically updated to the latest Synapatics 19.0.12.98 and the TouchPad was working until I closed my laptop and tried opening it again. Has anyone had a similiar issue? My computer is still under warranty. Should the hardware be replaced?

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.

I was playing a video game on my laptop around 4:30, when the keyboard suddenly stopped working. The mouse still functioned, so I tried clicking around to see if it was just a problem with the game. Then at 4:32, the mouse stopped working, too. I decided to try turning it off, but neither holding nor pressing the power button worked, so I unplugged the laptop from the charger and left it to run out of power on it's own. At 4:35, the display froze. I know this, because up until then the clock was still working. Currently, the vent fan is still running, and the screen is frozen. No keyboard buttons work, and neither the built-in trackpad nor an HDMI mouse is working.  Is there anything I can do to fix this, or do I need to send it in?The laptop was a brand new Dell Inspiron 15 7000 Series, with Nvidia GeForce GTX and an Intel Core i7.

A:Kaspersky Internet Security and Windows Firewall disabled, Intel HD graphics stopped working and recovered, can't disable touchpad

Hi A6RO81, and welcome to the forum.
As I recently purchased a Dell laptop, maybe I can help you. As you discovered, all Dells come with a pre-installed AV. The most important thing to do, if you did not want McAfee, was to not activate it, and delete it via your control panel. For extra assurance, you can run the uninstall tool (mcpr) from McAfee, which is available here, to completely eliminate McAfee:us.mcafee.com/.../mcpr.asp
Computers do not like duelling AVs, which compete to eliminate threats. This degrades system performance. Kaspersky is a top-notch AV, but if you find it lacking, again you will want to run its uninstall tool, free to download from here:

When you completely uninstall all traces of McAfee and of Kaspersky, your Windows firewall and Windows Defender AV should be working. If not, let us know.
I can't answer all your questions. Suffice it to say that the native Windows 10 firewall, and the Windows Defender AV provide fairly good protection. You just want to be sure that all traces of other AVs have been deleted.
And yes, 8 GB of RAM should suffice for your purposes.

I upgraded to Windows 10 and the touchpad worked at first, but now has stopped completely. There is no light on, but the system diagnostics and device manager say it is working. Have checked that is not coinflicting with external mouse and the driver is up to date. Help!Mark

My scrolling up and down option of touch pad is not working what should I do...?
 

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.

Go to Start -> control panel -> Hardware and Sound.

Somewhere in there you should find adjustments for the sensitivity.

If this does not work please state your operating system for further help and try it with a USB mouse.

I'm not sure where to ask but I have a problem.

My laptop (Acer Aspire 4750G) touchpad is not working. It is still usable, I can move the cursors with it. But the system seems telling me that I keep pressing the right button of the touchpad, so when I left click/tap the touchpad, it works as a right click instead. I disabled that by plugging in my USB mouse and right-clicking on the mouse. Well the problem comes again after I do that so I'm forced to use the USB mouse, which would be very annoying and time-eating if I have something to do quickly. Also, there's nothing stuck in there a the drivers are up-to-date.

the left and right settin gor switched some how maybe ! in the keypad settings.

so, EVERY TIME I close(and re open) my laptop lid the touchpad stops working. seemed to happen after a win X update(not upgrade TO win x) it is so extremely frustrating. the only way i can get it to respond again is to reboot. I have tried disabling and reenabling the touchpad, updating drivers, and nothing seems to help.

A:Laptop touchpad not working - Drivers? IRQ error? Something else?

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?

Hey all you wonderful tech-savvy people! I know this is probably an annoying question that gets asked all the time, but I honestly have no idea how to fix this. The two finger scrolling on my Samsung RF511 laptop has decided it wants to stop working. I haven't installed anything or done anything different, so I don't know why this is happening.

Anyone out there willing to tell me how to fix this?

A:Laptop touchpad not working since installing Windows 10

Hello ObiDad. Welcome to the Forum

You don't say how old this laptop is or what operating system it came with, but that would be helpful to know.

The first thing I would try is to uninstall (remove) the touchpad from Device Manager. If the option is available remove the driver also. Then restart.
The important thing is that you try and remove all instances of any old drivers that may interfere with the generic driver installation.
Windows comes with a generic touchpad driver and that will be installed automatically and it may work right off, particularly if there is a driver conflict going on here.

If it works, then you could try and install the Advent driver. Only this time run the installer program (app) in Compatibility Mode. Use the compatibility mode for the operating system that the Advent driver is made for.
Compatibility Mode Settings for Apps - Change in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums

See if either or both of those things help.

Some touchpads require specific drivers installed. Did you install these from the manufacturer? This is the integrated one on the laptop not add-in devices?

I'd be very grateful if someone could suggest a solution to the problem I have with the touchpad on my laptop, the one finger scrolling is not working, I have checked as far as I can using the info provided, as far as I know the driver is up to date, I've looked for 'Dell touchpad' or 'Device settings tab' in control panel and they aren't there, just mouse ( ps/2) properties and these are shown as ok, any ideas please? many thanks,Steven. ps, guruaid tell me it's a hardware problem but I'm not so sure, it used to work fine before Windows 10 was loaded and messed up a whole lot of functions, I was then told it's not compatible with this laptop, so I had to put Windows 7 back on and the problem stemmed from around that time

Hi PUFFIN88,
Have you performed a clean install of Windows 7 or have just rolled back the OS from Win10 to Win7? Is the touchpad detected in device manager? Is there any damage on the system? Do the touchpad button register a click?
Update the BIOS - http://dell.to/28WKQHB- restart the system and check if it works fine.  Reinstall the touchpad drivers from the same site and check.
If the touchpad is not detected in device manager- then download the service manual from the support site link above - and reseat the palmrest cables and check if it works.
Restart the system and press f12 key on startup - choose diagnostics. Let it run the diags and if you encounter any errors - make a note of the complete error and report the same to us.
Write me a private conversation with the service tag and your contact details(Name and Email) for case records.
Let us know if you have any other queries.

Again it worked fine a few days ago and it still works when I use it with skype, but when I try to open it with "amcap" I get the screen below. The real reason I need this camera is because I'm using a video editing software, and the program can't find the cam, therefore I get no picture.

Hi there I am looking for some help with my old laptop. It is a Dell Inspiron 6000 and the PSU has stopped working altogether.

I have some other dell laptops and since it is not worth buying a new PSU for this old laptop I was wondering if it would work with one of the PSU from the others I have.

One is also fairly old: Inspiron 1525 with a supply from the PA-12 family putting out 19.5V and 3.34 Amps. The other is a new Latitude E6410 putting out 19.5 V and 4.62 Amps.

The label on the back of the Inspiron 6000 says it takes an input of 19.5V and 4.62A. SO my question is will either of these work? I only need to power the laptop I don't need to charge the battery.

Thank you in advance

the psu from latitude E6410 is identical to the one in inspiron 6000. 19V and 4.62A. they should work.
