I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)


For the past several months, I have been experiencing an issue with my touchpad on my XPS 9550. I have sent my laptop in 4 times for repairs, and I have even had my laptop replaced with a new one and the same problem remains! I know that I am not imagining this problem because other people have experienced it, but I have not yet seen a fix.
The Problem: Every few days, the touchpad suddenly becomes unresponsive to tapping. Upon tapping, it either tries to drag whatever you have selected, or it highlights text (depending on what you are doing). Multiple finger gestures (e.g. scrolling, changing desktops) still work perfectly fine for some reason, and so does mechanical clicking of the touchpad. The only temporary fix is a full restart, which is very annoying and time-consuming to do on a nearly daily basis.
Interventions:1. Updated BIOS and drivers - no change2. Sent in for Windows re-install - no change3. Sent in for new touchpad and palm rest - no change4. Sent in for new motherboard - no change5. Sent in for system exchange (they gave me a new laptop) - NO CHANGE
Does anybody have any ideas on how to remedy this issue? None of Dell's technicians seem to know the answer. I would be extremely appreciative if anyone has any suggestions, and I'm sure you'd be helping out a bunch of other people as well!

I recently finished cleaning my laptop of malware with help of someone in the Malware/etc forum, and shortly afterwards while trying to use Function + left and right arrow keys to change the volume of my laptop, I noticed that the volume only goes up or down by 2 at a time when the button combination is used, rather than beforehand when it used to go up or down by 10 at a time. 
How can I fix this problem?
(If I'm in the wrong forum, please direct me to one where I might ask this question)

Hi I've got a Samsung NP300e5e-S02ZA (not the NP...shown in the sysinfo ) I upgraded to windows 8.1 from windows 8, everything was working fine. I sent it to the Samsung Care center to load the recover partition (I accidentally deleted the wrong one) Subsequently, I received a factory reset laptop, as you get it off the shelf. Everything is all right, except that the touchpad swipe functions don't work. Swipe from the left or the right, double-touch scroll functions etc. nothing. It only move the mouse cursor and clicks when tapped. bas.

I have done the following:
Checked the touchpad settings in Control Panel...everything selected, but no effect
Downloaded lateset touchpad drivers from Samsung site...installed, with no effect.
Downloaded latest drivers from synaptics site...installation fails.
First uninstalled driver before attempting to install above mentioned driver...result is the same

A:Solved: Touchpad swipe function not working

Seeing 76 reads and no reply's must mean no one knows how to fix it...or I'm the only one that doesn't know

I found a solution. The drivers I downloaded from the synaptics sites did not install, because I read somewhere that they had forgotten/neglected to digitally sign the driver (for windows 8.1 at least) Windows will not install a driver that is not digitally signed. That function can, however, be switched off. Here's how
Installed the driver afterwards and everything was as it. I'm running windows 8.1 64 bit. Perhaps someone can say if it works on Win 8 if the problem exists there also.

Yesterday the sleep function on my E560 began to behave strangely. I pressed the round power button on the upper right hand side of my keyboard, which doubles as the sleep button, and the computer didn't go into sleep mode immediately (which would be indicated by the red light in the letter "i" in "ThinkPad" slowly blinking on and off). Instead, the screen turned black and then the fan made a loud blowing noise before the computer went into sleep mode. When I pressed the power/sleep button again to wake up the computer, the screen remained black for 5-10 seconds before it came on.  Normally, it would come on immediately. Prior to yesterday, the sleep function worked normally.  What happened?

No idea if this is hardware or software, but I'm trying this first.

I have an Inspiron 1525 laptop running Vista. My touchpad stopped working for some random reason a couple days ago except for the buttons. It might have started working again a while ago, but I just noticed 2 hours or so again that it was working, except for 2 things: I can't do that... uhhh... dunno what it's called, where you click the two buttons together and it does what clicking the mouse wheel on a normal mouse would do... and I can't scroll. The thing on my taskbar that tells me where my finger is on the touchpad has disappeared, as well.

A:Touchpad not working properly

Touchpads are usually proprietary pieces of hardware that have drivers supplied by the manufacturers. Check your device manager and settings in Control Panel (it may be under the Mouse settings) to be sure everything is all right there.

You might also go to the manufacturer's web site to check on a driver, and maybe an update to it. You could always reinstall it, anyway.

A:Touchpad not working properly

What state is your laptop on when the touchpad issue occurred? This happens on my fujitsu laptop when charger is plugged in. After a quick googling, found out that I just had to put the "brick" part of the charger to a good distance away from my laptop. Worked wonders! Issue usually happens with replacement chargers (due to voltage or ampere incompatibility).

Not sure though if this was your case.

I recently installed a NVIDIA GeForce 8400 GS video card into my Dimension 2400 desktop computer which runs Windows XP 32-bit OS. I bought this card for it's S-video capability so I can stream Netflix (or any other video) to my TV screen (which I used to do with my laptop, but it died - another story haha). I installed the card and downloaded the latest driver to my computer from the NVIDIA website (version 196.21 to be exact). I then turned off my computer, and plugged in the provided s-video cable to the back of my desktop, and connected it to a radio shack s-video to RCA (the yellow video connector for most TV's) converter and plugged it into my TV (which NVIDIA says shouldn't be a problem). I then followed the online instructions from NVIDIA on "Connecting a video card to a TV and enabling TV output". This included using the "Run television setup wizard" on the NVIDIA Control Panel. Upon following the prompts for the setup wizard I am taken to the first screen which says welcome and click next....so I do. It then takes me to the next screen so I can choose which display mode so I choose "DualView".

Hi I have a Samsung RV510 laptop and I have a problem with the elan touchpad. It can scroll up and down but I when I click or tap on anything it doesn't do anything. I am using a USB plug in mouse but I am working on an university assignment and I need the USB portal to save my work on an USB key. Before Christmas I had the same problem and I went into the tech support in uni and he said that I had set the left click button to right click function or something like that and he went into control panel and mouse to resolve the problem. He fixed it by doing something in Mouse under Control Panel but I just can't remember what and by the way I have the setting where the elan touchpad is disabled when an USB plug in mouse is inserted. I really need help today if you can ! I have tried to adjust the settings of the touchpad in Mouse in Control Panel but even switching the buttons does not do anything to solve the problem. Sometimes when I start the laptop the touchpad works fine but an indication that is going wrong is when I am scrolling the screen with the touchpad the pop up that appears on screen when one right click appears by itself and keeps appearing whenever on the screen I move the touchpad mouse. After that the tap to click as well as left and right click buttons fail to work at all and I do not know if this is a software problem or is it a hardware problem as I said I encountered this problem already and now it's returned. Thanks

I have a HP Pavilion DM4-3099se Laptop with a Intel Core i5 dual core processer and 6GB of RAM. On this laptop is a Synaptics touchpad and uptill now it was working fine. It recently started glitching and now when i move my finger on the touchpad, the mouse moves but it repeatedly stops and then starts moving and then moves in all different directions. I went to the Synaptics website and installed the latest drivers for the touchpad and the installation was successful but the trackpad was still the same way. My external wired mouse works fine right now though. I tried restoring my system the earliest point there was on the list and still no improvement on the touchpad. Please help. Thank you.

Hi there, Nmparmar          -
Thank you for writing in to the Lenovo Forum - happy to have you here today.
Can you try to:
Make sure you use the original 65W 20V/3.25A or 90W 20V4.5A AC adapter that came with the unit.
Plug the AC adapter in another wall outlet in your house (preferrably another side of the house) - if this works, the original wall outlet that you used before when you got the issue may not be properly grounded.
Perform a power drain by:a turning the PC OFF. Remove the battery & AC adapter then hold the power button for 30secs. When done, reinsert the AC adapter and battery then boot into the BIOS by pressing F2. When inside the BIOS, press F9 to reset default settings and press F10 to save and exit.
Update the Touchpad Driver below:

After a routine update to my Lenovo Thinkpad Yoga 15 type 20DQ-001, the scroll function on my touchpad is no longer working (no two finger scroll and no other fancy multitasking functions either). I visited other forums (a few years old) about this issue and they said to go through my control panel, go back a driver, and reinstall the driver. After restarting the computer this works, until I shut the computer down and turn it back on later or the next day to find the scroll function no longer works...again. I have been using this fix multiple times a day for over a week now. I also saw something online aboutclicking a button in the control panel screen for "mouse" that turns on scrolling; this does not exist on my PC's control panel. How do I fix the track pad permanently? Please help!

I've never seen anything like this. Okay, here's the system rundown --- Running win 7 pro sp1 64 bit on a Dell xps 8000. Replaced hard drive one month ago, and I've used Seagate's diagnostic tool to check out hard drive, which didn't find any errors with the hard drive.

So, here's problem 1:
Computer was running great up until four days ago. It wouldn't wake up out of sleep properly. It would freeze. I would have to reboot to wake it up. It won't even let me LOG OFF correctly because when I go to log back on, I don't get the prompt to choose the user or enter my password. When I reboot --- that I can only do by shutting on and off the power, it's fine. The computer starts up fine in SAFE MODE, so I'm not detecting any issues there.

Problem 2:
Internet explorer 10 (got it with one of the updates two weeks ago) simply would HANG and not open. Even with I would click it once and open task manager to see what was happening, it showed multiple instances of explorer open. So, what I did was turn OFF Explorer 10 in the "turn windows features on or off" section. But when I when to turn them back on to see if it would reset, I not only lost the default windows icons from the start bar, Explorer refused to initialize when I tried to start it from "Programs" or from clicking the explorer.exe icon in both Programs (64 bit) and Programs (x86).

To this point I've done the full scan disk, and also run SCAN NOW. I also have anti malware software ... Read more

okay at first i thought this was a mild issue but apparently not only my desktop is missing, my control panel is missing too. on top of that i'm no longer getting sound from my speaker.

I'm using a Windows 8 on an SSD.

What Happened?
I tried to remove my portable harddrive safely. Then something went wrong with my Local Drive C it seems. A pop-up message saying, "C:\windows\system32\config\systemprofile\Desktop refers to a location that is unavailable. It could be on a hard drive on this computer or on a network. Check to to make sure the disk is properly inserted."

1) system32\config\systemprofile\desktop went missing.
2) Can't search a lot of stuff e.g. Control Panel using Window key+F anymore
3) No sound
4) Startup app doesn't start up automatically even when i have it enabled on Task Manager

What Have I Tried?
1) Copied Desktop folder (empty inside) from my user folder and pasted it in C:\Windows\....\systemprofile folder. That didn't help the case that much either because whenever I start login into my user account I wouldn't able to go to desktop by pressing the Windows key or click on the top left of the Start Menu of Windows 8. Only Window key+D would work. Right clicking the bottom left doesn't bring up a list of stuff including "Control Panel"
2) Automatically repaired but failed

I love my Satellite T110-107 but there are issues with the TouchPad.

1). The mouse cursor doesn't move at times. With this one I can get it to move by taking both hands away from the laptop for a moment.
2). The mouse cursor suddenly 'shoots' off to the right hand of the screen.

I've tried changing the touchpad sensitivity to both the minimum and the maximum levels, i've adjusted the 'Palm' sensitivity but nothing seems to help other than by making the sensitivity low which helps a little.

I've also noticed that when the laptop is on my lap, the problem is worse than if it's on a table.

I think that it's a problem with a build up of static on the case.

Any other ideas?.

A:Satellite T110-107 - Touchpad not working properly

Hi buddy,

I use Satellite T110 for months now and really and no problem. Everything runs great and I don?t have any problems. It?s really great notebook!!!

So it must be something wrong with yours or installation.
First of all I would recommend updating the touchpad driver. You can download it on the Toshiba website:

After this you should test it again. Check also the touchpad settings again. There are a lot of settings to improve touchpad.

A:My mouse/touchpad is not working properly while charging

Hi suneel_zee.
Welcome to the Community,
Have you tried different power outlets? Does this happen in different locations(even outside you house/work)?
I would suggest you to release flea power.To release flea power disconnect AC adapter,remove battery,disconnect all external peripherals(USB devices),press and hold power button for 30 seconds.
Reconnect the battery and AC adapter.Check how touchpad responds with AC Adapter connected.
If the issue persists try a different AC adapter(may be borrow from some one who uses same watt Dell AC adapter).
Let me know how it goes.
Thank You

Hi. I'm a first-time user and happy to have found your website!

My operating system is Windows 7. I am using a wireless Logitech Mouse (uses USB hardware). I have had this laptop for 5+ years.

1. The touchpad will not ?turn off.? Under "Mouse" on the Control Panel, functions for the Dell Touchpad should allow me to simply turn the touchpad on and off. Regardless whether it is in the on or off position, it is still on.
2. Even when I don?t touch the touchpad, the cursor skips around the screen, highlights text and deletes text. Typed text re-locates within earlier typed text.
3. There is an on/off light at the top of the touchpad that indicates the touchpad is on/off. This is not working.
4. Also this panel item allows me to manage sensitivity, buttons, gestures & edge scroll & zoom. I can work these, but the Edge Scroll & Zoom buttons do not see to change the settings.

1. I have checked the drivers for both the touchpad and mouse and I get messages that they are each up to date
2. Because the touchpad will not turn off, I have tried to manage the buttons to turn down the sensitivity, to minimize movement of text. This does not help.
3. Turning on ?Disable Touchpad & Point Stick when USB Mouse present? does not disable the touchpad.

The touchpad on brand new Lenova Yoga 720 does not function properly. After install, mouse pointer does not show and the touchpad does not work. The only way to get around on the computer is the touchscreen. Keyboard still works. A hard reset solves the problem temporarily. To get the mouse to show and the touchpad to work, I will have to hard reset the laptop everytime before desired use. If the computer goes to sleep, the touchpad dissapears. I do not think that the touchpad shows up anywhere in my devices. I am not sure because I do not know what the file may be called. Otherwise, I would uninstall the driver and re install. Support said to download driver off website, there isn't a touchpad driver available for download. I'd like to keep this laptop  and correct this issue. But it is a new computer so if there isn't a solution soon, I will return it instead of wasting time adding to it. Seems that many have had similar issues. Anyone any closer to an answer? Hello? Help?

Hi, I got my HP ENVY 15t-q100 CTO Notebook PC in September, 2014. It has Windows 8.1, 64-bit. For the first few weeks of use, I did not have any issues. Then, I started having more occurences of cursor/touchpad issues to the point where it happens every hour of use (not an external mouse issue): Jumps around on screen (a few millimeters to inches). Move incrementally on its own without me anywhere near the laptop (generally spazzes to the left). Not allow scrolling/normal touchpad functions when issues are occuring. Functions as if I am holding down the click button while I try to move it - most frustrating part when I am doing important work. Randomly click stuff as I attempt to move it.  Here is what I have tried to do to fix it and has not worked:Roll back driver (didn't work). Update driver (no updates available). Reset device (works for a minute or so). Restart (I do this daily anyway). Reduce cursor speed and other mouse options suggested online.   I have seen similar issues for the HP Envy 17 and other notebooks, but no actual fixes have been proposed. Please help me with this issue.

Not sure what they meant, because the people that fixed my computer were not there at the store to explain it to me, but I'm assuming that it's the top and bottom cover of my computer. I was told that the hardware and the software are still intact, because they didn't have to alter anything during the reparation of my computer. The first thing I noticed when I started using my computer again is that it is very slow. It makes that "thinking" clicking sound all the time, even when I'm not using the computer (No programs/files open, long after the computer's startup). The system was VERY slow. It was laggy and irresponsive most of the time. I deleted multiple useless files and download new antivirus software to make sure that my computer is clean. The computer is no longer laggy, but the "thinking" sound is still there (it's there all the time).  The second thing I noticed is how my touchpad didn't respond to my click. I can move the cursor around perfectly fine, but I cannot click. Neither with a tap on the touchpad nor with an actual click on the touchpad. The touchpad registers my touch, but not my click :/ Does this have anything to do with the aforementioned hardware/software/harddrive/drivers? (My computer terminology is terrible, sorry). Thank you.&nb... Read more

I recently updatet my Laptop (Z930-12m) to windows 10, everything is working fine so far, except the Touchpad (Synaptics).
I can't scroll any more and also the momentum setting I used before seems not to be working any longer.

So I ask myself are there any updates for the drivers planed for this? Or can I get them anywhere else?

The scrolling on the touchpad works now, I just did not adjust the settings properly.
But the momentum still does not work.
Anyhow, I found a view drivers for my laptop

I bought this laptop 4 hours ago. Within 20 minutes of me setting it up, I began have alot of issues with the touchpad. I tried installing the newest drivers, troubleshooting, and all of the other stuff that has been reccomended to other people and Im still having this issues. I did abit of research, and it seems that almost everyone with a control zone touchpad is having alot of issues. Is there any way to fix it? And when will HP acknowledge the fact that this touchpad needs to be fixed, and do something about it?

I am having a Dell Inspiron 5537 ci7 with Windows 8 (64-bit) running.
Occasionally the pointing device starts to malfunction (especially after high-end playing games)
The problem:
"When I click anywhere on a window (be it browser or windows explorer etc..), the window gets deselected. I cant browse at all.
Another browser (Chrome) specific click issue (when deselection isn't happening- The tab closes when I click on it.
Right click also does the same.. (deselects the window)
The problem is gone when I shutdown and start again - Restarting usually doesnt helps"
It seemed like a driver issue to me - I have installed the latest version of synaptics driver from dell (i.e. v16.3.15.3) - didnt helped.
Request support... Its really hindering my routine use

Hi guys, I hope someone can help me with this:

So I recently upgraded from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10 and I noticed a few issues with the touchpad on my laptop.

1: two finger scrolling no longer works. Now I have to drag one finger on the right edge of the touchpad up and down in order to scroll vertically.

2: I've also noticed the blue loading circle beside the pointer keeps flashing roughly once per second whenever i leave it alone, even if I am not running any programs. I can leave it on the desktop and the blue circle still keeps flashing.

It appears Win 10 installed a new driver called ELAN Input Device. That's what it says when I go to the device manager.

However, when I go to the settings menu>devices>mouse and touchpad>additional mouse options to the mouse properties, there is no way to configure the gestures.

I found out that I have to go to the Elantech folder in program files and run the ETDAniConf application and that brings up the gesture customization menu. However, when I run the program the option for two finger scrolling, pinch zoom, etc. are checked on, as is the default. There is no option for one finger right side scrolling like I mentioned earlier. And, as I said, the blue circle keeps flashing when idle.

My laptop is a MSI GT60 running Windows 10 upgraded from 8.1 which was updated from 8.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. To sum up, ELAN is messing up my touchpad and the pointer loading circle keeps flashing when idle... Read more
