Jumpy touchpad on notebook???

Q: Jumpy touchpad on notebook???

I have a Toshiba P25 with an ALPS touchpad. Lately the pointer jumps all over the page...that is, if I rest my hand on the "handrest" area, the mouse pointer might jump up 8 rows in a document or such.

I thought this must be some sensitivity setting but cannot find any such setting with the ALPS mouse control panel.

Anyone know how to tame this beast?

thanks,

Tom O'Connell

What would be the cause of a jumpy touchpad even after cleaning it, yet its fine when an external mouse is plugged in?

A:Touchpad Jumpy

do you have sweaty hands/fingers or very dry fingers, both these can cause trackpad issues. as well as liquids.. anyone spilled a drink on it recently and not made you aware???

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.
 
Thank you

For some reason my touchpad is very jumpy when I'm moving the cursor then using the "invisible" left click button.  At first i thought I was just fat fingering where I'm clicking but I paused and carefully clicked on the left button and the mouse cursor either jumps a few inches or almost to the bottom of the screen.  I'm using the newest drivers and even tried messing around in the Ultranav settings.  Is there a way to stop the touchpad from picking up movement at the left click/right click areas?

A:Twist touchpad jumpy/erratic

You might want to try playing around with Starting Zone in TouchPad Properties. You get there by going to  Mouse Properties and then under the UltraNav tab you'll want to click on the settings button for the TouchPad. "Starting Zone" is nested under "Smart Check Settings". 
 
If that doesn't help, you might also want to try adjusting the PalmCheck settings.

The touchpad in my P70 works really well for the most part but when I make minute/fine adjustments the mouse movement is rather jump. It woudl basically ignore small amounts of movement and all of a sudden jump in the direction I am moving. Any way to make the mouse movement more precise and not so jumpy?

Hi,
I have an Inspiron 15-7569. My touchpad was working fine then after the most recent Windows update, the touchpad has become so oversensitive that it clicks and erases what I'm typing, especially on Microsoft Word. I tried adjusting the touchpad settings but the only thing that seemed relevant was turning the "tapping" off -- it helped, but it's still not enough. 
Anyone have suggestions? I don't remember having this problem before the most recent Windows 10 update.

I've been struggling with this issue from the begining. Basicaly the mouse pointer is jump when I try to make small movements and the problem ocurs both with the touchpad as well as a G602 external mouse. What could be causing this and how can I fix this? I've tried just about every setting available under the Windows Mouse, Touchpad settings and nothing is working. I did find the following post that seems to suggest a Realtek driver might be intefering with mouse movements. Has anyone else noticed this?

Hi- I picked up a used Dell notebook and have just installed win98SE and just a few other programs, no special mouse software... just Dell sound and video drivers, IE 6.0 and Windows Updates, SpyBot... I have used other notebooks, but never noticed what this crazy touchpad does on the Dell Latitude CPiA366- touching the pad like you were going to scroll the cursor over is having the same affect as a left click with mouse button, or Enter key- do all notebooks do this or all Dells?
Weird- put the cursor on a link and it is activated just by the pad when you put your finger on it- not even a tap really. Is there a way to turn down this too sensitive touchpad?
 

A:Notebook touchpad question

Found an answer to my question- seems this is how Dells work so all is fine.

Hello people. I would like to request assistance.
I need to disable the touchpad on my Asus G74Sx notebook. Is there some kind of program I can download that will allow me to disable the touchpad? I used to have a program that allowed me to do so, but when I google it now, I don't get any results that will allow me to download that program, it was called FspUip.exe
Pressing function F9 does not disable the touchpad, and going into the BIOS and disabling the internal pointing device also disables the keyboard.

I have downloaded all the drivers for my notebook numerous times, and I don't know what else to do to try to turn off this touchpad. Going into the control panel and disabling the touchpad that way, also doesn't work.

Hey everybody... I've got an HP Pavilion ze4400 on which the touchpad doesn't work. I can't be sure whether it's a faulty device or if drivers aren't installed. In Control Panel, under Mouse, Hardware, only one device (the USB mouse I'm using) shows up. I'm not sure what the standard touchpad driver for HP notebooks is. Going through the Add Hardware Wizard and telling XP that the device is already installed, it then gives me a list of installed hardware to select from. I don't know what that driver is, if it's even in there. Anyone know what the driver is? Anyone else have this problem? Thanks!

This issue was raised in another thread which was closed out before it was resolved. I have an ASUS Notebook K53e and I want to disable the touchpad on it which the specific make/model is ELAN PS/2 Port Smartpad. You should be able to do this with Fn+F9 however that keyboard function does not work on my computer as the guy in the previous thread. When I got to devmgmt.msc->Properties on the device->Driver , the "Disable" button is greyed out. I did not receive a driver CD with the machine I purchased . I need this thing disabled because it interferes with the typing very badly. Where do I go from here? Thanks,

Well, I just found the fix myself after posting this thread. You have to go to Control panel->Hardware and Sound->Devices & Printers-> Right click on the PC device->Mouse Settings->ELAN tab there is an option to Stop Device. Pain the arse mate

Hi @FlashRam1714 and @SDJL Per my post from 1-27-16: 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. 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.  @FlashRam1714 intially responded to me and I followed the steps he told me. Here's my response on 1-31-16: I tried the hard rest first to no avail.  I followed all the steps in HP Notebook PCs - Using the TouchPad or ClickPad (Windows 10), including redownloading the newest drivers, and still nothing. I also tried your link to HP Notebook PCs - Testing for Hardware Failures (Windows 10, 8). I ran the component test for the mouse and passed both the pointing and drag tests. So clearly its not a hardware issue, but a problem with the compatibility between the Synaptics Pointing Device -v19.0.12.98 driver and the Touch Pad. Again when I roll back to the Microsoft 10.0.10586.0 Touch Pad driver, the touch pad works, but with a lot less functionality (the driver date is 6/21/2006) My machine originally had Windows 8.1 on it and I upgraded to Windows 10.

Hi,

Windows XP Pro.

At the office I use an external mouse on my computer.

At the end of the day I (usually) unplug the mouse before going into standby mode.

When I forget to disconnect mouse before going into standby mode...when I get home and resume my touchpad ends up being frozen and won't work.(Note: Built-in notebook keyboard does work however).

When this happens the only way I know how to correct the problem is to restart the computer.

Is there some magic or alternative way to unfreeze my mouse without having to restart the computer?

Thanks.

I ran the component test for the mouse and passed both the pointing and drag tests. So clearly its not a hardware issue, but a problem with the compatibility between the Synaptics Pointing Device -v19.0.12.98 driver and the Touch Pad. When I roll back to the Microsoft 10.0.10586.0 Touch Pad driver, the touch pad works, but with a lot less functionality (the driver date is 6/21/2006). After a few days though it ends up updating to the Synaptics Pointing Device -v19.0.12.98 driver. Is there a way to stop it from updating? My machine originally had Windows 8.1 on it and I upgraded to Windows 10. I noticed Synaptics has a newer driver (v19.0.19.1) that goes with Windows 10, but I haven't had luck trying to install it. Do you think that's the issue and if so, could you explain how to replace that with my current driver? Thanks, Matt

A:TouchPad on my ENVY Notebook Driver Issue

I have been having the SAME exact issue that you are having.  In fact I bought two of these machines and they both had the same exact issue with the touchpad.   I still have one of these machines but the other was returned. My device is also an HP Envy 15t-q300, also originally installed with Windows 8.1.  I installed Windows on this machine from a clean ISO install. Currently I have Synaptics driver 19.0.19.1 (Driver Date: 8/5/2015).  This provides full functionality to the touch pad and has been stable.  The annoying part however is that Windows Update likes to update this driver.  Once that happens the touchpad will typically work until the machines goes into it's first sleep cycle, and then upon next resume the touchpad shows as disabled and there is no way to enable it.  That is when I must perform the driver roll back and things work for a while again. I have downloaded the latest drvier from synptics and the same issue occur as they do with the driver from Windows Update.  I would really like to see a resolution to this issue as it's really quite irritating.

Does anyone know how to repair the touchpad buttons on a Notebook N1L19EA as the left one has developed a left/right seesaw action unlike the right button which remains firm to the touch ? Unit still under warranty but Support refuse to do the repair without wiping the HDD and resetting to factory ... which is a load of ******** given that it will cause me untold hassle and time to get the laptop back to where it is now (from a software point of view). Any assistance would be gratefully received. Thanks

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?

As it says in the question, my touchpad makes a really loud clicking noise when I push down on the left side. It feels loose, so I have to push down and it clicks loudly, then I have to push further for it to actually select whatever it is I want to select. I want to know if I can fix this myself somehow, or if I'll have to send it in to be fixed.

Hi, The Clickpad settings of my touchpad have been resetting and it is very frustrating having to set it up after each reboot. I have the latest driver: 19.2.4.0 Rev.A http://support.hp.com/gb-en/drivers/selfservice/HP-ENVY-17-n000-Notebook-PC/7771351/model/8429318 I have tried the previous version but the problem still persists. And now for some reason, my right click area is not working and I have to rely on double tapping to right click. Disabling two finger click does not activate the one finger right click area either.  Any help would be really appreciated. I'm very annoyed and disappointed with this HP laptop I have attached my system info below: HP ENVY Notebook - 17-n062na  EDIT: Forgot to mention that I have tried to change the registry option on the Delete User Setting option from 1 to 0 but this resets to 1 again.

Okay I have been working on this work a while and have exhausted all options, I hope someone can help me. I have a Elitebook 2740p that I have upgraded to Windows 10 from Windows 7. Went smooth except the only problem I have is the flat trackpad the nub for the trackpad works good, but I rather the flat finger pad below the black nub. When I use this the point arrow goes all over the place.  This is what I have done notice installed driver was version 15 deinstalled and installed version 18 of the Symantic driver. That did not work, so I deinstalled version 18 and let Windows install its own driver. That worked except cutting and paste does not work. Is there a fix with trackpad driver that allows the flat portion of the trackpad to work? Awaiting any reply.

Hello, I bought Acer One 14 Z1402 notebook few days before. Windows update was made once. The touch was working fine for 2 days after update and then stopped working. I tried to update the Finger sensing pad driver software (sentelic v9.4.9.9 R4 --> current one), after that the system was restarted. Still the issue continues.Now there is error like "PC is running into problem, it will automatically restart in few moments"  then blue screen appears.

Elangovan,
 
Try performing a refresh if you can, should that fail, a reset to start over. If you are having issues getting into Windows itself to perform the refresh/reset, here is an article that might help.

Extremely frustrated I've looked and tried to find a solution to no avail. When the notebook boots up, it gets to the login screen, I wouldn't be able to do anything at that point but I can log in because I have a fingerprint scanner, from there I'm 100% dead in the water. The only way to shut down is to hold down the power button. While the computer is in bootup, I have touchpad/keyboard function, I can escape to boot options, BIOS, repair, etc. and have normal functionality while there but not in safe mode. I have ran SFC with commands several times, chkdsk with commands several times, nothing changes. SFC says it found problems but was not able to fix all of them and the last chkdsk found nothing wrong.

Here are the events leading up to:
* had disk errors and bad sectors in old hard drive (could not repair)
* cloned old hard drive to new hard drive (there were errors but the new hard drive booted and worked for the most part correctly)
* in the process of trying to fix missing setup files for applications and other miscellaneous small issues, I ran troubleshooting, updates, chkdsk, sfc, etc. removed various applications, and added a few, nothing worked. I installed Revo uninstaller to remove Kaspersky Internet Security as it is THE MOST stubborn application to remove I've ever experienced. The reason I mention that is because I went through my computer trying to find the leftover files even after Revo because Kaspersky was still running after re-installing it and uninsta... Read more

A:Frozen touchpad and keyboard on HP Pavillion dv6 3225dx Notebook

If you have (and should have) a USB keyboard and mouse connect them and see if they will work.
Since your file system was already corrupted you cloned the bad files to the new drive.
If the USB devices work you should do a Repair Install.
If that doesn't work do this: Using System Recovery, Factory Reset and Minimized Image Recovery Options HP Pavilion dv6-3225dx Entertainment Notebook PC | HP? Support
From this tut:
Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7


   Information
On newer models HP Recovery may offer a Minimized OS Recovery option when booting from F11, which retains only the OS, Recovery Manager, HP Support Asst, and HP Wireless LAN. This is as close to a clean reinstall as you can get without doing one yourself.
● If you clean reinstall only to C and leave all other partitions intact, F11 Recovery key should still work later if you need it.
● You can also Extract HP 3rd Party Software from RecovCD.
● Problems with volume control lighting and HP Quick Launch buttons have been dealt with here where you can also get further support.

Hi all,

First post!

My touchpad (built into the notebook) works fine on the login screen. As soon as I hit the login button it stops totally. Buttons and touchpad. Also my screensaver works before login (on login screen) but once logged in it won't auto start but will start under 'preview'.

It's very annoying and I'd like to be able to scroll without holding the button and dragging. Thanks
