Elan touchpad not working properly

Q: Elan touchpad not working properly

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

Hi there,

I am having issues with the ELAN driver on my Satellite S50-B-12Q. One of a sudden it started to work weirdly, it can't be used. It moves fast and not responsive to your finger's actions. The only solution I've come up with is to roll back to a previous driver, the windows one, but of course I've lost all the extra movements (scrolling, moving right, left and so on).

I have tried different versions of the ELAN driver but had no different results.

Could please anyone help me out with this?

Thanks

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.

Remember this recent thread?

https://forum.toshiba.eu/showthread....topped-working

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.

OK so now if my touchpad is switched on the mouse cursor sometimes makes continuous erratic movements around the screen. Turning it off solves this problem. Is this a sign it's wearing out, or is there something I can do to stop this?

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.

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.

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:

Before reinstalling the operating system please take a data backup.

Basic story is that I bought my lenovo laptop about a year ago. I was excited when I received it, however, I quickly realized that the right mouse click button did not work correctly. You have to press it very hard and it regularly fails to work. As far as I can tell from reading around, the synaptics version of the pad had issues that were resolved by a driver update. Has there been any sort of fix for the ELAN version? I've tried both uninstalling and reinstalling the latest drivers available (as far as I can tell) to no benefit. Would really love to get this fixed so that I can use this laptop as intended.

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.

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.

I just wanted to pass on to Acer support that I was unable to install the Windows 10 preview build 1030 on my ES1-411-C1WD with the touchpad set in the UEFI to Advanced mode. If I left it on Advanced mode, Windows 10 installation would not have a mouse cursor and at one point just locked up. I had to change the setting to BASIC mode in order to get Windows 10 preview to install. If I change the setting to Advanced mode, Windows 10 loads but without a cursor, so I am left using the touchpad in Basic mode.

Hi ShowsOn,
 
I'm sorry that you're having trouble with your teouchpad. For the sake of troubleshooting we would need to do that under Windows 8/8.1 to determine if there is a hardware issue. We're still a few weeks from releasing supported product list for Windows 10, but I would expect that once that's out it will easier to get drivers.

I'm running the most recent driver on my Elan touchpad (v. 10.7.6.2). With this update came automatically activated PalmTracking, which causes a 2-3 second delay on the mouse after every keystroke. I can't find a way to disable the PalmTracking. Everything I've seen through searches so far shows how to disable this with older versions. The only available 'properties' screen looks like this:

Having the PalmTracking activated is really frustrating - particularly since it used to be possible to disable it. Does anyone know of a way to disable it with this driver version? I'm also including the rest of my computer's information at the bottom. Thanks for any advice!

A:Elan Touchpad Disable Palmtracking

That does sound like an annoying feature.

If there is nothing within the settings/properties window you included in your post, I can think of three options:

1) Disabling the trackpad drivers entirely. This options will fix the delay problem, but you will lose all the other useful functions of the trackpad.

2) Rolling back to a previous version of the driver.

3) Editing a registry value to turn off the feature (this may not even exist).

Assuming you'll want to try out option 3, I'll need you to make a System Restore point first.

After you've done this, proceed with the directions below.

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.

The hinges on my computer were askew, so I sent my computer to the service center. After 3 weeks, they returned my computer to me and told me that the top "chassi" and the bottom cover have been replaced. 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

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.

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.

PROBLEMS:
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.

WHAT I HAVE DONE TO ATTEMPT RESOLUTION:
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.

Because the ELAN touchpad was over-senitive (cursor jumped about), I installed an external mouse. I checked the box on the ElAN tab of the mouse device page and pressed the Apply button and it all worked beautifully. The cursors didn't jump about, just responded to the external mouse.But every time I restart my laptop, I have to go through the process again, as follows:1. Start> Device and Printers > Left-click on laptop and choose Mouse settings2. Choose ELAN. Uncheck above-described box and press Apply.3. Check above-described box and press Apply.4. Close these windows and continue.This it too much to go through. Any solutions?

Hi lloyde1200,
 
You can check the users guide for your Acer product, nearly all have a shortcut to enable/disable the touchpad. If you have trouble, provide us with your model and lets see how we can help.

I want to disable the "hover to select" and the "tap to click" feature, I have searched everywhere so I just hope someone here can help as it is driving me mad.

A:Satellite M50-A - changing settings on Elan Touchpad

I have disabled all the options on the touchpad properties. All multi finger, Edge scrolling, Smart area tapping, Drag tap and Edge swipe.
Can I reduce the sensitivity?

I cannot find anything to help me on either the Elan or Toshiba web sites.

I am running a ThinkPad L530 in a Windows 10 environment.  All drivers are up to date.
 
Ever since I installed Windows 10, whenever the laptop awakens from sleepmode or is rebooted, the touchpad becomes enabled.  I have gone into the Settings - Devices - Mouse & touchpad - additional mouse options - Ultranav and unchecked the "Enable TouchPad" and clicked Apply, then OK.  This doesn't hold, though.  As soon as it awakens, the box becomes checked and I have to redo the settings.  I don't want the touchpad active at all, but I do occasionally need the eraser button.  How do I make my selection stick?
