Power button unresponsive on IBM Touchpad

Q: Power button unresponsive on IBM Touchpad

So yeah,
One night while my computer was running- IBM Touchpad Windows XP I think- I cleaned the keyboard off with an antispectic wipe before shutting it off. Then I shut it down via the start menu, and the next time I tried to turn it on it wouldn't respond, and it still won't.
What should I do?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

when you push the power button on the front of the case, do any lights come on? Look in the back of the case, can you see or feel the fan on the power supply moving?

So my left touchpad button has become unresponsive. 
It doesn't seem to be mechanically damaged.
when I use the touchpad utility and swap functionality between the two buttons, it doesn't perform either so I'm guessing this is a physical rather than driver issue.

Hi, yesterday I got my new parts for the upgrade my pc has been dying for.

I got an NZXT Hades case, a Phenom II 965 BE (the C3 one) an AsRock 880gxh motherboard, 2 sticks of OCZ Gold DDR3 and a arctic freezer 7 pro for good measure. Now it wasn't the first time I've built a system from scratch so I knew what I was doing to an extent and eventually I had it up and running including the old parts required from my previous system; HDD, 2 DVD Drives (1 RW), my HIS Radeon 3870xt and my 500w Aspire PSU.

Now the first odd thing I noticed upon plugging in the PSU's powerchord and flicking the switch was that my USB mouse and my PS/2 keyboard lit up before I'd pushed the power button. Upon pressing it, it powered up as you would expect but once at the welcome screen the mouse wouldn't move, eventually I sussed that it was a driver issue so I fixed that, baring in mind I had powered down several times by now with no issues turning it back on. Finally got things 'right' and had it on for a good few hours. I shut it down as I went to bed (had to hold down the power button as a game had crashed and a simple press of the button did nothing) and flicked the switch on the power supply as the mouse and keyboard didn't go off when the system shutdown. I come to it this morning, flicked the PSU switch and the mouse came on along with the keyboard. However pressing the power switch resulted in NOTHING.

I looked into the case and realised I had mixed up... Read more

Been trying to fix this for 2 days now. It's not a physical button but more like a lit touch pad type of thing. You barely tap it to turn on/off. It's stuck on & I have to unplug the monitor to turn it off.
I am wondering if the slight static electricity has fried something? You know like in the winter when you get static on your fingers when you touch certain things? It happened a few weeks ago as well but I fixed it somehow. Can't remember how I did it though. Any suggestions?

Hi there, first off, I'd like to say that I am using a Dell XPS l502x. Yesterday I was cleaning my keyboard and palmrest, and i think some liquid got inside the mouse buttons and the power button, because they malfunction now. The mouse buttons do not work, and the power button only works when I press it sometimes. When I do press the mouse buttons, sometimes the laptop will go to sleep or on standby. I'm thinking of buying a replacement for the palmrest because it contains both the power button and touchpad, as well as the mouse buttons, but I need confirmation so that I don't end up wasting money if it doesn't work. Is there anything I can do?

This is my first time posting here, I appreciate any help. Thanks .

So if you thought your new shiny Yoga had a bad touchpad, it may not be the touchpad at all! My Yoga 720 15.6 was acting really strange where every so often using the touchpad wouldnt work, and trying to use the keyboard wouldnt work at all. I first thought it was a touchpad issue but realized that this is a system wide issue. Something is causing Windows to start hitching. I turned off Adaptive Brightness in Power settings and the problem has gone away! I had a hunch it was this when I noticed the adaptive brightness was doing its job of gradually changing the brightness but looked like it was lagging while it was dimming/brightening itself. Lenovo Support: Please address this problem through any channels necessary because I want Adaptive Brightness but right now I have to have it disabled in order to use Windows without any hitches.

I have a Toshiba Satellite L4550-S5976 running under Windows 7. When I start it up (and if I catch it at the right time), the touchpad buttons work fine for a few minutes. After the machine completely boots, the touchpad button problems start - the left button performs as the right button and the right button does nothing.

On a lark, I plugged in a USB mouse and rebooted. When I do that, the mouse works fine AND the touchpad buttons work properly. Carrying around a mouse isn't always convenient so I'd like to have the machine work as expected.

I tried updating the touchpad drivers - that did not fix the problem. I even reinstalled Windows 7 on the machine - that did not fix the problem either.

Any ideas what I could do next to fix this problem?

Thanks, Brian

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.

Man this feels weird. I'm usually the one giving help, not asking for it lol.

This problem started after I left my computer on sleep for a couple hours. When I woke it up, the touchpad taps and left mouse button clicks brought up the right-click context menu and nothing on the taskbar responded to the cursor hovering over it. Also for some reason pressing the Windows key on the keyboard wouldn't bring up the Start menu. The only way I've found to correct this is to plug in a USB mouse and press the right MB on it. I also was able to fix it one time by uninstalling the Synaptics drivers and letting Windows restart and find the mouse, but after trying to reinstall the Synaptics drivers then uninstalling them again after the problem reappeared this method no longer works. In either case left click functionality is restored but there is no right click functionality period on the touchpad/buttons. However the USB mouse that I plug in works normally. Also after left click is restored, everything on the taskbar and elsewhere responds as it should with the exception of not being able to right click on anything (which sucks in W7). I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the Synaptics drivers to see if that would fix it but after reinstalling them and restarting, the problem came back. Another thing I've noticed is that even with the Synaptics drivers installed the vertical scroll area doesn't respond.... Read more

Hello, I'm having a problem with my Thinkpad L430. The right bottom button on the Touchpad is registering as a left click rather than a right click (which normally brings up the pop-up menu. It is enabled and is set to this in the Elan software. I've also tried changing the command, however it simply doesn't work. When I click the 'mouse button reverse' option in Windows, the left click brings up the pop-up menu, so it probably isn't a software issue but to get a second opinion would be great. I have all of the latest drivers and software updates, and the Elan software is set up to default. I have also completely reinstalled Windows and rolling back to an earlier driver version, but it still isn't working. Any advice on how to make the right button work again would be greatly appreciated! I'm running Windows 7. Thanks.

Hey.
Ive a Dell Inspiron 5459 and I?ve been facing this problem of erratic cursor since the past week. My OS is windows 10 64 bit.  It started right after I had updated the bios and installed some security updates for windows. The cursor started lagging and malfunctioned so I just started with an external mouse.
However, today when I was just checking the updates and all, I happened to enter the bios and was kinda flabbergasted by the fact that the touchpad was fully functional and smooth inside the bios. This meant one thing: it wasn?t an internal problem, but prolly a driver issue.
I uninstalled the devices under mouse in the device manager and installed new Synaptics driver but that didn?t help. I uninstalled the updates that were recently installed and even downgraded the bios but all in vain. After all this, hoping against hope I decided to format and install a fresh copy of windows. That didn?t help either. Even with a fresh copy of windows, the cursor kept jumping from one point on the screen to another rendering the touchpad useless. It?s been almost an year to this laptop and I?ve never faced this issue before. Any sugggestions and solutions other than ?install latest drivers, uninstall old drivers? would be appreciated as I?ve already tried everything and searched a lot on the forums but haven?t found any significant solution.
Help.. please!

Once it was uninstalled,and the PC restarted the next morning, the touchpad and keyboard of my acer Aspire 5100 have become unresponsive.

During the video, you will see that the curser will jump left and right very often and randomly.

BIOS provides USB support before Windows starts which is why it works in BIOS but not Windows.

I suggest the best place to start is recovering your files/folders. You can probably just skip to Step 2 for your case See How to recover your folders/files when Windows won?t boot

Then you can comfortably try fixing your computer (which might need a full reformat/reinstall)

I came across a very frustrating issue with Windows 10 today that caused my Start button and Cortana to become completely unresponsive. I spent a couple hours trying to troubleshoot this and came back here where I'd found so many helpful solutions a long time ago.

Here's what @lochlomonder suggested:

Okay, since Windows 10 doesn't normally shut down fully, hold down the Windows and R keys together to get the Run dialogue box open, type in cmd, and then hit Enter. Within the Command Prompt dialogue box, type in the following and then hit Enter: shutdown /s /t 0 (that's a zero at the end). Note: this will turn off your PC, so ensure you've saved all your files and exited applications properly.​
Once the PC shut down fully, I started it back up and my Start button and Cortana came back to life. Thanks!

I managed to get it working once with a BIOS update but as soon as I put it in sleep mode, both became unresponsive again. Under Mouse Porperties the TouchPad option is grayed out and the TrackPoint option is sometimes grayed out and sometimes not.

My Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 13 keyboard has not been working. It does not work at all, even when logging in, and I have to enter my credentials either via touchscreen or via external keyboard plugged in by USB. I've checked to ensure my driver's are up to date, and I've run the diagnostic software on Lenovo's online support website, which confirms my drivers are up to date and it claims there are no hardware problems with my keyboard. My computer appears to be recognizing the keyboard on the device manager as well. This had been giving me troubles on and off for years, but I don't remember how I used to fix it (usually a reboot would solve the issue, although sometimes it would take multiple). Any help would be much appreciated. I'd really like to avoid a factory reset, as I don't have all the software easily available to re-install.

Hi I purchased this laptop around 4 months ago and really enjoy using it. the touchpad has always been a little unresponsive, particularly on the two finger scroll but I have been patient with it. today the cursor froze completely.  when turn on the laptop or restart the cursor appears on the screen. when I try to move the cursor using the touch pad it does not respond. when i touch the screen, the cursor disappears and never returns no matter what I do. I can navigate using the touch screen but my natural instinct is to use the touchpad so I waste lots of time instinctively going to the touchpad and then having to redo the action on the touch screen.  I updated the Synaptics touchpad driver (tip from a related string on the forum) ... sp71089.exe ... but it made no difference. Please helpThanksFrankkk

After using the ThinkPad Yoga 260 for about two weeks, both the trackpoint and touchpad are now unresponsive. I've tried updating the drivers, rolling back the drivers and uninstalling the drivers and installing the latest one. None of it works. I managed to get it working once with a BIOS update but as soon as I put it in sleep mode, both became unresponsive again. Under Mouse Porperties the TouchPad option is grayed out and the TrackPoint option is sometimes grayed out and sometimes not. Regardless, it is completely unresponsive when enabled and disabled.

Hello, I've bought a brand new T460 ThinkPad about 10 days ago, and I'm noticing that when I plug in an Ethernet cable, the touchpad becomes unresponsive: some clicks and taps are missed, movement is slow and and occasionally temporarily stuck. The touchpad comes to life again immediately once the Ethernet cable is unplugged. The trackpoint and trackpoint buttons above the touchpad are unaffected, only the touchpad starts to misbehave. This happens both on Windows and Linux, so it's not an OS-specific issue. Moreover, I've checked to see if I'm running the latest BIOS version, and I am. And there are no issues when using the wireless adapter, but one of the reasons I've bought a ThinkPad was that it has an Ethernet port, so not being able to use it would be extremely dissapointing. I've checked to see if there are IRQ conflicts for the touchpad, but could find none. The problem happens both when the computer is plugged in and when it's running on battery only. I've also tried two different cables in the same router, each in a different router port, and the problem persisted. I am using the latest Windows 7 drivers directly from the Lenovo website, and Arch Linux with kernel 4.4.5 - the Ethernet adapter is seen as: [ 2.751703] e1000e: Intel(R) PRO/1000 Network Driver - 3.2.6-k[ 2.751705] e1000e: Copyright(c) 1999 - 2015 Intel Corporation. Should I expect this to be fixed with a BIOS update or should I contact warranty? Living with it is unacceptab... Read more

Tried an external USB mouse, it had no issues with Ethernet plugged in. So, the trackpoint works, an external USB mouse works, but the touchpad loses sensitivity and becomes choppy and occasionally unresponsive.

Whenever I wake my chromebook from sleep the trackpad function is inoperable. There is no cursor displayed and using the trackpad does not appear to have any effect (i.e. no "invisible" cursor either). Upon reboot all trackpad function is restored. This started happening after I had been using my chromebook for a few months, so I'm guessing there was a software update associated with it, but I have no idea which one. Anyone else experienced this? TIA

Now & then when I start my computer, nothing appears in the task bar, the Microsoft Start button at the bottom left fails to respond to either a left or right click, the Cortana window "Ask me anything" & the Task View are also unresponsive'
I then restart the computer either by pressing the power button for some time or by the Ctrl/Alt/Delete process. On re-starting everything is fine.
What I don't know is how to prevent this problem from occurring again.

Hi there,

This recently happened to me with my Surface Pro 4. All you gotta do is Ctrl+Shift+Esc (opens TaskMgr) and do File > Run. Type in 'powershell' and check the box that says Run task with administrative privileges. Once you get into PS, run this:


Code:
Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}
Should fix it right then and there, but you may need to restart.

Hope it helps

Hello community I have this old  thinkpad, which i am very fond of. However, recently the touchpad and trackpoint are acting up.Both right-buttons have stopped working. If i right click on the desktop, nothing happens - until i left-click... then the context-menu keeps popping up until i click on something else. Eventually both left buttons also stop working. I then have to press ctrl alt del and move the mouse over the on-screen-buttons initially they do not respond. after a while they become active again. Then the left button works for a little while until it starts over again... have tried updating drivers, removing the touchpad and trackpoint,  reinstalling windows 10 and flashing newest BIOS without any improvement. External mouse works flawlessly,,, Suggestions are most appreciated :-) Thanks, Kasper, Denmark
