Preferred Solution: TouchPad mad!?

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.)


I have purchase multiple xps 13 and inspiron 13 laptops and observe the same issues.  I tend to use the touch pad with my right hand's index finger, and click the touchpad button with my left hand's index finger.  It's a quick way to get things done.  Many in my organization do this, too and have been running into problems.
However, quite frequently (but not all the time) when I click the button with my left hand the cursor jumps to another location on the screen.  Frequently this is the lower-left corner of the screen, but sometimes it is the upper right, too. This causes different windows to come into focus, or it activates the start menu.  Really , really annoying, and it happens on both laptop models.  Our previous Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro and Acer laptops did not have this issue. 
I think this has to do with the touch pad thinking that the user has two fingers on the touch pad and moves the cursor thinking the finger jumped around the pad.  Otherwise the gestures and movement of the touchpad is fine. 
Is this a known issue to Dell?  It's really aggravating and other users in my organization are complaining as well.  I may need to return the lot (3 XPS 13, 5 Inspiron 13 machines ) and look at different hardware.

I have a Dell Latitude D630 laptop that has issues. Sometimes the touchpad works, and sometimes it doesn't. I've noticed when it doesn't work, the icon in the tray has disappeared or never booted up to begin with. Sometimes it boots up and sometimes it just doesn't even boot up to the tray at all. And at other times, it does.
(Along with this, maybe it's just a coincidence, but I've been working on this for days and days but when the touchpad doesn't work, the keyboard acts up too!) This might have nothing to do with it at all.

I've done a complete reformat of the hard drive, installed Win XP Professional, reinstalled drivers over and over. Been to the Dell website and have all the newest drivers.
When I reinstall the touchpad drivers, it does work once again, but this seems to be short lived.
The laptop is 4 years old...seems strong otherwise, can handle multiple tasks fairly well, has a dual core installed.
I can't figure it out.
Can anyone help?

Thank you!!

Haven't updated your laptop's trackpad driver lately? Then you may well want to consider doing so, at least if your laptop is equipped with a Synaptics trackpad. As a user on the Hardware Zone forums discovered, the latest Synaptics driver seems to enable multitouch gestures on older laptops that didn't previously support them, including two-finger scrolling, and three-finger click. What's more, while the drivers themselves come from HP, they should work just fine on other laptops with a Synaptics trackpad. Hit up the link below to try it out for yourself.

We just got a Dell XPS-15z, and, we have questions about scrolling on the Cypress touchpad using the Cypress drivers.

When scrolling down (either one finger or 2 fingers), when you hit the bottom of the touchpad, is there any way for the scrolling to continue without your having to lift your finger(s) back to the top of the touchpad? On other Dell laptops, I have Chiral motion, or the scrolling continues so long as your finger is at the bottom of the touchpad? I tried enabling the "Continued Motion" option just in case that was what did it, but that did not seem to work.

Which brings up another question re what "Continued Motion" does.

Also, is there any manual/help document for this driver either on the internet, or in the software itself?

I looked on the forum and on the internet, and couldn't find any answers.

Hello, I tried to upgrade to windows 8 and found that the touchpad became super sensitive and jumpy. Reading online I found a firmware that claimed to fix the issue and found it on HPs Support site. Mid install, it reported that it failed and forced a reboot on the laptop. When it was back up and running I found that the touchpad no longer worked. Its exactly the same issue as in these links: http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Software-and-How-To-Questions/Touchpad-Not-Working-After-Faile... http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Operating-System-and-Recovery/Touchpad-Firmware-Failed/td-p/23... I've tried to reflash and to get new drivers but they are not able to go through. The drivers install but don't fix anything. The flashing will quit saying I need drivers first even though I have them.  I've even reformated and put the factory windows 7 image back on but it still will not work. The solutions posted in the above links didnt work for me.  Does anyone have any idea on how I can fix this?

#1 For some reason my touchpad on my HP 15 (2015 model with 8.1, now upgraded to Windows 10 1511) freezes. I hate that when it happens, you cant use it for 20 or 30 seconds or so. I close my lid and open it back up and it works normal, but then after a little bit it starts doing it again. My driver is up to date, I think it maybe Synaptics? If I need to give more info, please say!

#2: When I scroll on my touchpad up words it opens the start menu every so often when I am scrolling a lot, but when I didn't even open or even get near it or press Windows key. What is causing this? I hate it when it does this and screws up my readings then it stops scrolling and focuses more on the start menu then I have to click out of the menu and go back to what ever I was doing.

Hello Everyone,

My problem started after updating windows 8.1 to windows 10, of course!
First the touchpad just stopped working, for no reason.

My solution was to uninstall the drive and restart the laptop. And from time to time I had to do this proceed. Two weeks ago windows updated, and the touchpad issue's gone. . Unfortunately, another one appeared.

The feature "mousekey", which is turn it on at ease access to use the numeric keys to use them as a mouse, It's turning itself on. And doesn't matter how many times I turn it off, few seconds and it's on again.

I've tried uninstalling the drive, which after windows the last updating was "ELAN".

Then I replaced by the Toshiba drivers, which is "Synaptic", and uninstalled the drives ,the problem is the same. Because of that, I can't use my numeric key, which is annoying!! If anyone can come up with something I will be grateful.

Until recently the touchpad used to work with the HP / Synaptic driver. 2 or 3 finger function worked and turn on / off with the orange light worked.  For whatever reason these functions don't work anymore and I don't find a driver on the HP Support site to download and install.

I did a touchpad update  and now the buttons switch around. when one works the other will pop up with a tiny menu ive never seen before. If both buttons work the touchpad wont work.

Dell 2-in-1 3147:
The "DELL Pointing Devices" dialog shows a "Disable Touchpad when USB Mouse Present" checkbox. If this checkbox is clear, the touchpad works properly. When this checkbox is marked, the touchpad does not work at all.
I have tried both USB and Bluetooth mice, and neither one allows the proper action: the touchpad should be enabled without a mouse, and the touchpad should be disabled with a mouse.  That's how it works on other systems.  It just doesn't work at all on this system.
I suspect there is some interaction between the touchpad and the touchscreen that is interfering with this setting.  But I have another laptop with a touchpad and a touchscreen, and the mouse detection works there (it's not a DELL).
Yes, I have toyed with the idea of deleting the DELL touchpad control application and installing a "stock" Synaptics touchpad driver.  But I don't want the DELL  "update" app to overwrite it with the DELL touchpad control app every time it sees "the wrong driver" loaded.  And I don't want to take the chance that the touchpad driver and the touchscreen driver are somehow linked together, thus disabling one when I disable the other.
Any ideas on how to get the "Disable Touchpad when USB Mouse Present" action working would be welcome.  

A:Inspiron 11 3000 (3147) "Disable Touchpad when USB Mouse Present" disables touchpad ALL THE TIME

I would love to know where to find that checkbox ... Thank you!

Model: Dell XPS 15 9530.After a recent motherboard replacement my touchpad doesnt click (as in you cant physically press the buttons) and doesnt register that im pressing the touchpad down. I was wondering whether this is an easy fix or a common issue. Posting from New Zealand but the support over here is pretty attrocious and havent received an email reply for a few days so thought id see if anyone else had similar issues. Was done by a professional so I am wondering why it doesnt work and maybe if he just didnt screw some stuff back up right.

A:After motherboard replacement my touchpad doesnt click and doesnt register that im pressing the touchpad down.

Thank you for writing to us!
We would suggest you to first uninstall the touch pad driver and then restart the system install the latest drivers from the Dell site .
Use the link for the latest drivers :www.dell.com/.../diagnose
Once the drivers are update check if works fine.

A:Touchpad not working, usb mouse does, touchpad never works even w/o usb mouse

Hello Tristan,

Welcome to the forums.

Been a while since I had a laptop, but I seem to remember there being a setting on what to do with the touchpad when the mouse is plugged in. Unfortunately I don't remember where and have no way of finding it.

Have you tried rebooting with the mouse unplugged?

Sorry I can't be of more help. The manual for the laptop ought to have that info in it somewhere.

I am running XP Pro on a laptop (Sony Vaio) and at first everytime my curser was over a link it would automatically click it. It would always hightlight and activate anything it sat on for a few seconds. I did go into the mouse settings and unclicked the "Turn on Click-Lock", but I am still having this happen. Any clues as to why? Can I adjust the touchpad somehow?

I have a laptop and I think the touchpad may be going. Whenever I leave my curser on something for a second it automatically clicks it. I really hate this as I always have to be fast and move my arrow off the screen to avoid clicking a link on the page. I have already gone into the Mouse configuration in control panel, but I am only using my fingers so I don't know if that helped in anyway. Doesn't appear to be a change. Is there a way to adust the pressure of the touchpad through some kind of settings? I have a Sony Vaio.



There are probably ustilities in control panel for yout touch pad. Check them out and see if there is any such functionality that can be disabled. Most touch pads also allow for sensitivity settings and double tapping on them is also acts like a double click.

I have small problem with my touchpad. Basically i would like to be able to turn this thing off. FN+F6 turns it off only temporarily, each time i reboot/wake up my laptop it's turned on again.
I Hoped for "Disable internal pointing device when external USB pointing device is attached" but sadly this option is not present in Device Settings. This is a huge letdown. 
Does anyone have any ideas (or simply know) how to either add this option or turn off the touchpad (almost) permanently ?

Just bought the HP Spectre x360 13-4195dx (13" convertible Laptop), and have updated the BIOS and windows 10. I always disable the "tap to click" feature of the laptop, but everytime i  restart the laptop, the tap to click reenables itself. I've tried to create a profile in the synaptics settings but that doesnt work either. Has anyone figured out how to permanently disable this feature? Thanks for your help.

Hello,I accidentally uninstalled my touchpad synaptics pointing driver on windows and can no longer two finger scroll or use any gestures. I have tried updating all drivers from the support Dell page and no such luck. I also checked inside the mouse and touchpad setting and then I press the additional properties and have noticed that there is no "dell touchpad tab". Is there any way that this can be fixed?


Hi ChristianA37,
Please share the system model and the operating system installed on the computer so that we can check and assist you.

I have a HP 15 Notebook . Product #:N5Y05UA#ABA operating on Windows 10 . Recently my touchpad and keyboard have been malfunctioning. The left mouse button has a sticky behavior. On whatever app and the desktop when the cursor is moved the whole page is highlighted as if I'm holding down the left clicker and moving it. There is also random clicks on whatever. I haven't gotten any error messages before or after the problem started. About 2 days after the it started I did a factory reset on the computer and had everything updated. The keyboard began misbehaving also with a very long delay with typing .

Not sure if will work for all but I got my touchpad working again by switching to basic in the bios, installing I2C driver from acer site in windows then changing back to advanced in the bios. Working a charm at the minute.


The I2C driver is in with the IO driver package. It says in Bios that you must have I2C driver installed before switching to advanced or it will not work.

Heres the thing, I was able to procure a HP touchpad from a store during the second round of shipments. Stores were allowed to set the price themselves at this time, and the one I bought it from set it at 199 plus tax for the 32 gb model. This came out to about 230, 60 dollars more than the original fire sale price+ tax, but still reasonable in comparison to what they're selling for on ebay right now.

If Canada gets any more, the amount is probably going to satisfy one tenth of the demand; not only that, since hp has put it up to the discretion of the stores to set the price, Stores are either going to a) leave it at the fire sale price but tell people far in advance when they're going to get them in, and use this buzz to develop higher than average traffic so people buy other stuff, or b) stores that wouldn't get high traffic either way will just sell them for a little more than the usual, and make a bit more of a profit. You are either going to wait in line all night, or drive somewhere out of the way to pick it up for a higher price.

I have a few choices at the price point I bought it for:

-I can still sell it for a very tiny profit right now as it is unopened
-I can wait till the actual second production round of touchpads come out, wait for the price online to spike again and try to sell it then (maybe play with it a little)
-I can sell it and try to get another one at the proper 99 dollar price later this year, which everyone has to admit is a decen... Read more

The touchpad on my Sony Vaio laptop has gone funny. When I try smoothly moving the pointer across the screen, it will suddenly jump a few inches along the line it was meant to be travelling.

Does this sound like a harware or software problem?

I am used to have left button of touchpad configured as middle mouse button. I got a new Acer notebook with Windows 10 (had 7 previously) and didn't find how to make this setting. I contacted locar Acer support via mail but despite providing serial number I got answer like "it depends on installed hardware and software". Acer technical help doesn't know hardware and software configuration of their current notebooks??? I asked them to provide some more relevant information but didn't get any answer for more than a week. So I asked at Microsoft if they know how to fix it. Someone there tried hard to help (what a shame for Acer - evil Microsoft having much better support) but to no avail. He said Synaptics touchpad is needed for such settings. According to Acer website it should be preinstalled on the notebook. But it wasn't. We installed all touchpad drivers we have found on official website - but Synaptics settings didn't show up. He didn't know what we could do more. I wanted to ask on chat on Acer website but after filling my computer's serial number in Live Chat page I got: "Our records indicate the serial number you have entered is no longer eligible for warranty support." The notebook is one month old! No support then??? I hope I will get some help here since I don't know where else to ask and I am becoming desperate.
