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.

Hi, I recently bought the Yoga 710 and I really like it, but I have ran into a problem with the touchPad. Everything worked fine up until the last few days. The three and four finger swiping gestures no longer work (I double checked the settings. Three finger gestures are on). Every other gesture works (one finger, two finger).  Anyboby else having issues with this. From what I have been able to find online, it looks like an issue that arises when you put your computer into sleep mode. Not really sure where to go from here as far as a fix. Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks!

Hi, The two finger scroll function on the touchpad is not working. The driver is updated as well. Overall the touchpad seems unresponsive as well. It gets stuck and cursor stops moving. It is the only thing that I am not happy with regarding the spectre x360. Can you please help. Thanks

A:Two finger scroll down not working on touchpad

Hello @ukx360 ,Thank you for visiting the HP Support Forums and Welcome. I have read about your HP Spectre x360 Notebook and mouse freezing. Here is a document on how to troubleshoot the mouse and Touchpad sensitivities.If you will go to the section on Adjusting TouchPad, you will see a restore defaults button. If you select that it will restore the original settings.Hope this fixes things up.Thanks.

I have have my ThinkPad X1 Yoga touchpad configured to use the 3 finger gesture to switch apps on the Gestures tabe of the Synaptics Control Panel.  But swiping up or down on the touchpad with 3 fingers does not do anything.  This used to work when I first got my X1 Yoga a couple of weeks ago.  But it has since stopped.  All my drivers are up to date as of today (6/8/2016).  Is anyone else having this problem? I would like to add that the two finger Pinch to Zoom gesture on my touchpad does work...

A:Inspiron 15R 5520 touchpad two-finger gestures not working

Since this was asked almost 3 years ago and I see no answer I have to assume this is not a function I can expect on the Inspiron 5520.  I suppose it is too old to expect a driver change to enable that functionality.

Hi, I'm pretty useless when it comes to figuring things out with computer software, ect. But over the past 2 days, my touchpad has suddenly stopped working properly.The issue is that when I hold any key on the keyboard, I cannot move my mouse, nor can i use 2 fingers to move the mouse, or have any more than 1 finger on the touchpad, it just locks the cursor into place and i cannot move it. I have tried a few suggestions, such as turning off palm-tracking, and going into Regedit and setting the values of "disable when typing" to 0, and after restarting, the issue is still the same, I can't move my mouse whilst using the keyboard, or having more than 1 finger on the touchpad. I went back into regedit, the values were still at 0, I went into the mouse settings, and palmtracking was still turned off. I even tried installing a different driver, but once I installed it and restarted, the computer said there was an error and had to restart - this wasn't fixed until I reset my entire computer, which took hours.Though I am not sure if I went about installing the driver correctly, as I did not uninstall any previous driver. I just don't know what to do now to fix this, I've tried everything! And this is especially infuriating for me as I'm a gamer, and because of this I am unable to properly play any games!

HERE I AM LOOKING FOR HELP AGAIN, IS THERE ANY NEW SOLUTION FOR THIS ISSUE ?
i heard about many costumers facing the same issue.
I tried unsuccessfully some fixing suggestions from the technical support over the year.
I still have the same touchpad problem and I very disappoint and its very hard for me using a new pc without multi touch over a year without any solution.
I have a feeling that DELL ignore the problem and ignore the costumers.
I am sorry that i wait for solution over the year, it was better if i was return it in time and get my money back.
for me it was a very bad costumers experience and ill avoid of buying DELL products in the near future again.

Title says it all really. This stopped working after the last major Windows 10 update (the one that introduced the three-finger horizontal scroll for scrolling through active applications). All other gestures seem to work OK, only the 2-finger scroll gesture has stopped working. I have all the latest updates installed, and all the latest drivers.

I don't want to downgrade to the earlier driver, because with that driver, I had the problem that the on screen cursor would jump positions if changing to the loading icon.Is there something I can do?

A:Touchpad not working on ideapad 300. How do I fix ...

Hi there, Tom ?
 
Thank you for writing in to the Lenovo Forum - happy to have you here today.
 
Just found the same problem with my Ideapad 500. Touch pad completely non responsive.
Under start menu, settings, devices, mouse & touchpad, additional mouse options, elan tab. The elan touchpad settings were completely grayed out and unavailable.
 
So from there I went to the window search in the task bar and typed in "computer management? and opened the computer management desktop app. Under device manager selected mice and other pointing devices and then elan input device. In the elan properties window that opened I selected uninstall to uninstall the driver and in the next box that opened warning that the driver was about to be uninstalled l checked the delete driver and then OK.
Then restarted windows. In the process of restarting windows detected the elan touchpad as a new device and installed the driver in time for the login screen. So my elan touch pad is now working again.
 
I am assuming that the driver had been corrupted in the upgrade from Windows 8.1 to 10
 
Touchpad driver for windows 10
Touchpad driver for windows 8.1
 
Update us how it goes.

I have this problem with an ideapad that was handed down to me for repair. The touchpad doesn't work. It came with Win 10 preinstalled, and also the ELAN driver.When I try to use the touchpad, it does nothing. The clic button works, so if I disable the touchpad with the Fn key, it disables it (that way I know it's not disabled when I try to use it). Using a USB mouse works just fine. I did everything I found in the forum: reinstalling windows, the drivers, using older drivers, updating the OS, changing sensibility options and so on, but nothing seems to work.I'm pretty desperate, since the phone assistance didn't solve my problem either. So, help me guys, please?

My laptop stopped working and I have started troubleshooting it today and have hit roadblock after roadblock trying to figure out what could be wrong.  When i turn the power on the power button turns on and the LEDS on the indicator bar at the bottom turn on but the screen turns off. I have tried to hard reset. I have removed the battery also to hard reset. Also has not worked. Tried connecting to the AC adapter after testing the AC adapted itself which is still measuring at 20V and the screen will flash white for a second when its plugged in without the battery. I checked the heat sink to make sure it was working and it si working fine. When I removed the fan though the thermal paste underneath was less than minimal and it fealt greasy. I don't think my CPU would have burnt up though because though becasue my system should have responded and triggered to shutdown. Everything is plugged in appropriately. All my memory is appropriately placed and nothing traumatic has happened to this laptop. Has not been dropped, stepped on, nothing.  I'm concerned maybe my motherboard shorted out but I feel liked that would be a little extreme. Do you have other suggestions for troubleshooting? I'm leaving it on the charger overnight before I mess with it again tomorrow! Thanks!

Okay so, I got my Lenovo Ideapad Y500 a couple days ago. Liked it and all BUT when I had my mouse connected into the laptop and then turned off the touchpad, it would not turn back on. The only way I could get my touchpad to work again is by restarting the computer, which is pretty frustrating. I searched this: http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/downloads/default.page?   for ANY drivers/software for the Y500 mousepad and there are none. Can anyone help me fix this problem before I get a refund from this potentially bad purchase? FN + F6 toggles the touchpad on and off and I have tried to turn it on and off, with and without the external mouse connected. Thanks for the help.

 Hi,I brought a brand new Lenovo laptop, serial no.- MP16RYPS on 10/03/2017 from an authorized Lenovo store.Now i have been facing issues with this laptop from the day 1. The mouse pad/touch pad is not working properly. The windows are not getting updated. The whole system is running slow though it has got 8GB RAM. Its getting hanged continuously. I have been very patience and have been contacting the Lenovo customer care for more than 2 weeks. None of them were able to solve the issue after doing all the troubleshooting by taking remote access. After that they send an engineer to my place to check the issue. I even did the "1 key recovery" twice, and even the engineer did it. Still the issue remains. He even formatted the complete laptop and done a clean installation of windows and the issue is still not resolved. One of your executive said that" its a starting level laptop so it won't work fast". Now i have been using laptops for years and i know what a normal speed of a laptop is. So now if you are saying that this problem is normal in your basic edition laptops and moreover non of you engineer is able to solve the issue, and above all my work is also getting hampered by spending most of my time with Lenovo, so please refund me the complete amount and please take back your so called "STARTING LEVEL LAPTOP".I have also send mail to Lencare, even they have refused to help me. No what am i supposed to do

The issue has already solved, just writing for thos who might have the same issue. One day when I turned the notebook on, the keyboard and touchpad did not work. Restarting ddi not help.The only thing I put my attention that time was the battery is almost discharged, so I turned the notebook off, closed the lid, and plugged it in. The next day I turned it on, and everything was working.  Another idea on why it happened: when the notebook lid opens and closes, it might switch to tablet mode, so that the keyboad and touchpad are off.

Just thought I'd share this here since I had no luck setting this up with the built in GUI for the Alps touchpad settings on my new Y50-70. Here are some registry settings I found that worked for adding right and middle click functionality to the 2 and 3 finger taps. I'm just posting since I had to dig around for awhile to find something that works, and I hope this helps save other people some time.
 
HKEY_CURRENT_USER > Software > Alps >Apoint > Guesture
 
 
"2TapSupport"=dword:00000003"Enable2Tap"=dword:00000001"2TapFunc"=dword:0000000d"2TapSetting"=dword:000000ff"2TapShow"=dword:00000009
 
Same for 3 tap except
3TapFunc uses 0d
 
As always, be careful with your registry.

So I recently purchased a new laptop that has Windows 10 installed (Acer Aspire E5-573G) and I would like to change the way the touchpad taps work. Specifically, I would like a middle click from a three finger tap. It's an ELAN touchpad, if that makes any difference, and I have installed the latest drivers.
Everything I looked up on google said to either use some program from ELAN, or to edit the registry. There currently is no program installed on here from ELAN, and all the google results I could conjure up while looking for a download for the program are people wanting to get rid of it. The only thing in my programs and features from ELAN is what I believe is the driver - "ELAN HIDI2C Filter Driver X64 13.6.3.1_WHQL"
The suggested registry edit also isn't available for me. That is to say, the path "HKEY_CURRENT_USER > SOFTWARE > Elantech" does not exist.
I'm not sure what the correct way I should be going about this is. Everything else regarding the touchpad works as intended, but I have no way of customizing it beyond the settings in windows. And since I have zero interest in having Cortana or action center being on my computer let alone as mouse commands, those settings are completely worthless to me.
