I'm having issues with my HP pavilion 15 notebook. the touchpad is super sensitive. When i go to click on things, the cursor jumps from where I'm about to click to somewhere just next to where it was. I tried going into the settings to see if there was a way to dull the sensitivity or completely deactivate it from the bottom part of the touchpad, but could not find anything. I tried putting a piece of tape over the bottom 1/5th of the touchpad in order to stop the cursor from jumping around as i clicked on that part of the touchpad, but it didn't have the desired effect and the tape started getting all sticky. I really just want 2 analogue buttons on the bottom, like the older models. Is there anyway I can replicate this effect? I have no need for that much touchpad.

Hi, I just purchased a new Samsung laptop model: NP-QX411-W02UB running WIndows 7. I'm having difficulties with the touchpad. Specifically, I am not seeing any options in the control panel to adjust the sensitivity. The touchpad registers a long click and a short quick as two separate things; as opposed to relying on a double click to open a file, the short click does so while a longer click is necessary if I just want to highlight a file. Any way of changing this? Also, is there any way to disable tap to click functionality? I hope that all is clear. Thanks in advance!

My touchpad is supersensitive and if I get anywhere near it I find I have selected text or opened a link or done some other activity that I didn't want to do. A previous thread said that the sensitivity could be adjusted via the Control Panel.  Well, I have it at its lowest, and it doesn't seem to act any differently.  I do not want to disable the touchpad, just make it act normally.  Please help, as this is driving me crazy!

It sounds as if you?ll have best use out of your touchpad by turning off your touchpad?s "tapping" function:press the blue thinkvantage buttonselect device configurationselect mouse settingsselect manage settingsselect the ?ultranav? tab along the topgo to settingsselect ?Tap and Drag? tabdisable tappinga faster way to get to the tapping function if you later find you want to turn it on and off, is to locate the ultranav icon on lower right of your screen, left of the system time, click there, and go to touch pad settings.

My touchpad is way too sensitive and I have no way to adjust it. I have a HP Pavilion dv6000 notebook that came with Vista but has been upgraded to Windows 7. I tried following other threads to fix this but my situation seems to be different. I tried downloading new drivers but the message I get says there aren't any drivers for this notebook with this OS. There is nothing anywhere on my computer that says Synaptics which I thought I had before the upgrade. I have Mouse Properties with tabs that read: Buttons, Pointers, Pointer Options, Wheel, Hardware. Nothing about a touchpad at all. Anyone have an idea?

Hello Shibara and welcome to Seven Forums.

- Create a restore point before you do anything else. Name it pre-synaptic driver (or something else) so it's easy to find it again.
- Go to the HP driver download support site

HP Support & Drivers | United States

- Click on the small down arrow in the Drivers & Software box.
- Type in Pavilion dv6000, click Search
- Click on your specific model (probably the first one, dv6000 CTO notebook)
- Select your original operating system (that would be Vista or Vista 64 bit)
- Open the download for Keyboard, Mouse and Input Devices
- Under synaptics touchpad click on More Info and you should see the driver package called sp37065.exe (you can either click on it to open and install or you can save it to a convenient location, like your desktop.)

Personally, since this is a Vista driver, I'd save the .exe file and install it using Compatibility Mode. Hopefully Windows 7 will recognize the driver and give you full Synaptics functionality.

Compatibility Mode

If this doesn't work, use your restore point to roll back your computer. You can try downloading the generic 32 bit or 64 bit Synaptic driver directly from Synaptic. But as they warn, it may not work because each computer manufacturer customizes the basic driver to work with their specific computers. If it doesn't work, you may have to use the restore point again and just learn to make do with the sensitivity issue.

I'm running Windows XP on a Q2 Designs laptop. My problem is the ultra sensitive touchpad. If I move the mouse pointer over a link, the mouse automatically clicks the link. I've checked, and the touchpad uses the Windows PS2 mouse driver, so there is no setting for sensitivity. I've also tried using an external wireless mouse, but there is no way to disable the touchpad. Yes, I've checked the Control Panel Mouse settings and there is no mouse disable.

Is there any way to desensitize and/ or disable the touchpad?

do you have Touchpad control icon in your notification area (sys tray, bottom right hand corner of your screen)? If yes, you should be able to edit settings or disable there.

I don't use the touchpad often at all, and never when there is a USB mouse.
 
I find that I am constantly pushing the cursor off when I am typing (I assume by gently touching the touchpad).
 
My previous laptop had a setting where I could disable teh touchpad entirely when there was a USB mouse hooked up. That was perfect. There isn't any for this ThinkPad.
 
I know there are sensitivity settings for the touchpad, but I'm not sure which ones work, and where to move them. What settings would be best for me to adjust, and in what direction?
 
Other than that, I've had this for a couple of weeks now and I really like it. I just wish I could deal better with the touchpad.

I have an annoying problem with the touchpad sensitivity on my new work notebook. When holding down the left or right mouse button underneath the touchpad the sensitivity of the touchpad greatly increases with about 100%. When the buttons are pressed I can move the cursor about twice the distance compared to normal. I want the sensitivity to stay the same, regardless if I'm dragging something/selecting multiple items or just moving the cursor as normal. File management becomes a pain when it's like this. - My previous notebook, also from HP, did not do this, so this is something new with this computer.- No acceleration or "enhance pointer precision" is enabled anywhere.- If I connect an external mouse, it does not behave this way.- I also noticed that if I double tap and hold and drag with the touchpad the sensitivity is unchanged.- Likewise, clicking an external mouse button, but dragging with the touchpad is unaffected.- And also the mouse button above the touchpad (belonging to the TouchStyk) is also not causing this for the touchpad.- The touchpad left and right buttons don't magically increase the sensitivity of the external mouse either. It's ONLY the touchpad's physical left and right mouse button that raise the sensitivity of ONLY the touchpad when depressed. I don't see any setting for this. On the Synaptics TouchPad tab in Mouse Properties there's a button to "Microsoft Mouse and touchpad", but there's no option about this. In any case, this... Read more

All of a sudden a few days ago my computer touchpad started acting oddly. When I'm moving my finger over the surface it thinks I'm right clicking and when I click the mouse button of the touch pad it interprets it as two clicks unless I'm very fast clicking it...

I've uninstalled, reinstalled and updated the drivers to the most recent update and it doesn't seem to have fixed it. The only thing that worked for me yesterday was to system restore, but about 3 hours after system restore it started to happen again.

It's a Synpatics PS/2 touchpad with the driver version 9.1.0 available from Toshiba, from Synaptics is verion 10.x but it recommends using the manufacturer website for drivers to not cause problems. I did try the Synaptics driver anyway but to no avail.

I thought that perhaps it could be a virus and it found a 'hidden driver' with a name that changes to something random each time I restart the computer, I am unsure whether this could be the problem, or how to remove it. (I was going to start another thread in security concerning that, but I shall wait until I get feedback from here first)

I'm using a Toshiba Qosmio G40-108 and it'll be two years old in September...

I've had my Chromebook for a little over two years without incident. Recently, the battery refused to charge - stuck at 1%. Scanning the forums, I found an answer - poking a small hole on the bottom cover which, purported to be the equivalent of removing and re-inserting the battery. It did, in fact, get me by the 1% problem. My battery does re-charge to 100% now. However, it drains abnormally fast. Leaving it in "sleep" mode for a day results in a pretty much completely drained. This is new behaviour.Does anyone know the life expectancy of this model's battery? Before going through the hassle and expense of a new battery, I want to be sure there isn't some other explanation. Thanks.

A:A few issues w/brand new chromebook

Powerwashing it should fix your camera issue. You can find instructions on that at http://acer.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/27685
 
The ChromeOS does not have a function to allow you to easily disable the touchpad. You can disable a chromebook touchpad, but it involves using terminal commands. I don't see it discussed on this forum, but you should be able to search on Google and find instructions for disabling it at the terminal level.

I purchased a chromebook last week and sometimes when I am using it the screen goes black for a couple of seconds, then continues as normal. As far as I can tell this is nothing I am pressing, is this a fault with the machine itself? how do I fix this? thanks

RELEVANCY SCORE 50.4

Hello, new user with yoga11e. Thinkpad cannot connect to Internet. When I reboot router and modem my iPhone connects to Internet fine. When I start up thinkpad it knocks my phone off network. And the wifi won't work on thinkpad. If I robot router/modem and leave thinkpad off, my iPhone works fine. If I turn thinkpad on it immediately knocks my iPhone off Internet connection. You can see wifi connection strength of signal indicator on thinkpad but browser won't connect. Obviously some type of conflict but I have no idea how to resolve.
