L530 - Elan Ultranav Touchpad always enabled

Q: L530 - Elan Ultranav Touchpad always enabled

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?

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 did a search to see if this was already posted but didn't find it.  So, here's my story. I have a P40 Yoga that's about a year old.  A couple of weeks ago, I received a pop-up from Lenovo Vantage saying there was a system update.  Like a good user, I said OK.  I didn't notice it right away (because I use an external mouse) but the trackpad, left/right click buttons and the "trackpoint" center button all stopped working.  I did a lot of searching to see if there was a resolution but couldn't find one. Eventually, I went into Control Panel | Device Manager | Mice and other pointing devices | ELAN pointing device | Driver and saw that there was a recent update.  Fortunatly, there was a "Roll Back Driver" option which I figured couldn't hurt anything.  After a reboot, the driver is back to one dated 2/13/2017 version 11.21.9.3.  All mouse accoutrements are once again working. What prompted me to post today is that the Lenovo Vantage pop-up appeared again telling me there's an update and it wants to put the bad driver back. Irconically, the pop-up says: "Lenovo recommends that you install these updates to optimize your computer" Yah, right!  Now I'm sceptical about ever doing another update.

After using Lenovo System Update and updating the Elan driver to v.22.4.9.2, the touchpad settings were all gone. I saw that someone had luck on another model laptop rolling back the driver. In device manager, under "Mice and other pointing devices" find the "ELAN pointing device". Open the properties for it and choose "roll back driver". It picked v19.4.11.2. Once I restarted I now have the touchpad settings in the system tray and can turn off the "tap to select" which I hate. I am on Windows 10 Pro version 1903. I don't know if the Windows May update had anything to do with it or not. It is not on Lenovo's list of issues.

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 Keanutheskunk,
 
Welcome to the Forums
 
As per the query we understood that you facing issue with touchpad in your Lenovo Y50 laptop.
 
As you have mentioned that the mouse properties are graded out, as you have also mentioned that the driver has been reinstalled hence suggest you to reinstall the operating system and check for the issue.
 
Before reinstalling the operating system please take a data backup.
 
Hope this helps. Do post back if the issue persists!                                                   
 
Best regards,

The last tab at the right end of the Mouse Properties is Hardware and no longer UltraNav. However, my original settings of the touchpad are still kept.Uninstalling and reinstalling of the UltraNav driver did not fix the issue. The tab was probably lost following a recent update of Windows 10.  Any idea how I could get the UltraNav tab back? Many thanks to the communityPeter

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.

Hello I have recently purchased a Flex 15 with the Elan touchpad. I have noticed that I do not have an option to two finger tap for a right click. The settings for the Elan Touchpad provide me a way to two finger click (where i physically click the touchpad) but not for the 2 finger tap. This seems like a weird oversight since that functionality is so very common now for all laptops. Does anyone else have this issue? is there a way to get this functionality back?

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.

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

I have two machines that both have Elan touchpads and both of them have significant issues. One is an Asus Zenbook 303la. The other is a Samsung Ativbook 5. The Zenbook has erratic mouse movements. Sometimes the cursor will jump to another part of the screen. It also will click on stuff that I'm not trying to click on. The Ativbook has another issue. When I select something, there is a delay. I'll remove my finger and it stays selected for a few seconds. It especially has issues with scrolling. I tried configuring every option that I could think of.... I searched for a different driver to install but I didn't find anything on the Elan, Asus, or Samsung website. I tried uninstalling the driver and using the built in Windows driver. The touchpads work much better now but they are missing some features. The Samsung doesn't support double tapping for certain applications. Other than that it's acceptable. Anyone have any issues with these touchpad drivers or know of a work around?

The ELAN touchpad delays/lags a bit when my finger first touches the pad. The mouse on the screen "jumps" a bit to compensate the delay. Seems like it is deliberately done to prevent accidental mouse movement upon click.

Hello, I just unboxed my Yoga 710-14IKB two hours ago. I got to work setting everything up and noticed I get lagging when using the touchpad. This is especially annoying when watching youtube videos. When moving the mouse during playing, the video will get severe lag spikes, both video and audio. I got to work solving this and isolated the problem to ELAN software. When I deleted all driversoftware from ELAN, with device manager, all problems were gone. But doing this causes some functions, such as touchpad two-finger scrolling, to disappear, which we don't want. I reinstalled ELAN again with device manager by selecting "find drivers on the internet". It re´nstalled, restarted and back was the lagging again.  Any solutions?

Thus far I failed to identify the circumstances in which the touchpad stops working. It seems to sometimes happen when it checks for an update. What is also curious that the cursor will sometimes mess up such that the text cursor will be displayed as the context menu cursor. Not sure if this is related. The touchpad works again after restart. Everything is up-to-date, running Windows 10 (1909). The TrackPoint is unaffected by this.

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.

I have upgraded to 8.1 from 8(OEM) through the Store, when I tried to install the ELAN driver for 8.1 from Acer, installer says the driver installed but in device manager it shows only "PS2 compatible driver", the old driver works but it doesn't include "ETDctrl.exe" in Startup, I have to manually start it by going to Control Panel, HW and Mouse.
Is there anyway I could make ETDctrl.exe start when windows start? Thanks in advance for any suggestion and help.

Hi ,

You could use task sequencer, so to do this bring up your start screen and type schedule task. Load up that application.

Then right click your task sequencer library and create a basic task. From that you can create a trigger to say when the computer starts load this application.

Hope that helps,

Cheers,
Harry

I just received a Z500 Touch with Windows 8 yesterday, and I decided that today I'd like to play some first-person games. I found that my mouse would not move while I was walking on the game (i.e. using WASD/Arrow Keys/Space) and so I could not move in the desired direction or look at a certain thing without releasing all keys and using the Touch pad.  Obviously, this isn't great when in active parts of the game - you can't stay still while aiming without cover! I looked online to see if there were any fixes, I found a few, but they were for Dell laptops or not for Elan. I tried going into regedit from cmd and trying to change the "DisableWhenType_Enable" value to "0", and the same with "DisableWhenType_AllAreas", but to no avail. Is there a fix for this, or is it just me being blindly stupid and missing a massive answer? Thanks,Darthnoodles

hi Darthnoodles,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
Have you tried checking the Elan Software settings it should have a palm check option for it,

If the Settings page does no have a palm check option Try deleting the Elan Driver and see if that helps,

Hello everyone,I have a new T480s that works fine except for the touchoad. Most times i use the keyboard the touchpad is disabled automatically. It tuns back on after a few seconds, during which I can only use the trackpoint.It seems to be a ELAN driver problem as many other laptops report similar issues. I have tried some of the registry tweaks to disable the feature and it seems to have improved but still persists at time.Please help.thank you

A:y50-70 touchpad issue unable to install elan drive...

Your replaced touchpad is more than likely a synaptics touchpad.  I had the same problem, and my original touchpad was an ELAN.  The synaptics touchpad included in the replacement service part is garbage.  I have contacted Lenovo no less than 20 times to get this resloved, and they keep sending synaptics touchpads.  Tonight, I broke down and put my Y50-70 up for sale on ebay and purchased a new laptop.  I have been trying to resolve this issue with Lenovo since April of 2015.  I have had Lenovo machines for many years.  Never had any problems.  This unit which cost 1200.00 has been a problem since day one, and lenovo hasn't done anything to remidy the issues.  I am no longer a Lenovo customer.
