Touchpad Hotkey not working after latest Windows ...

Q: Touchpad Hotkey not working after latest Windows ...

I have a Lenovo Edge 2 (one of the Flex Series) that has been working great for the past 10 months. I usually use the mouse and turn of the touchpad so I don't accidentally move the cursor while typing. On this machine, the F6 key enables/disables the touchpad.NORMALLY: a notification comes up briefly on the screen when F6 is pressed (either a diagram of the touchpad, or a diagram with a diagonal line across the touchpad); there is a "live" icon in the lower right hand tray of the display that indicates when the touchpad is disabled.PROBLEM: Yesterday evening an automatic Windows 10 update occured, and the touchpad could no longer be disabled (the notification came up, but the touchpad worked even when the notifcation indicated that it should be disabled); also, the "live" icon was gone. TEMPORARY FIX: I uninstalled the Windows 10 update, and resinstalled the Synaptics driver for the touchpad (from the Lenovo website), and everything is back to normal. I have prevented automatic updates by making my internet connection "metered", but I work in many places, and use different networks, and don't want to have to keep all of them "metered".MY QUESTION: Any ideas what this update is doing to mess up my touchpad, and how to fix it? (I would like to allow the updates)?

Hi: The only suggestion I can offer would be to install the HP System Event Utility from your notebook's support page. This package contains the HP System Event Utility, which enables special function keys on supported notebook models to be programmed.

Hi, When I'm pressing alt+shift+l I get synaptics touchpad debug information. As this is a combination, that in Polish Programmer keyboard layout is typically used to get letter ?, this key binding is really annoying. The only way to disable this that I've found so far is to uninstall synaptics driver. Though this means also loosing touchpad gestures so I'm reluctant to go this way. As far as I was using WIndows 7, this was not an issue. Anybody has an idea, how to disable this key binding?

A:Turn on/off touchpad with hotkey for Dell XPS 13 (XPS L322X)

I have a Dell XPS 13 and this has bugged me for a year. I've finally fixed it though, via a registry command line:
To turn the trackpad off, run 
reg add "HKCU\Software\Cypress TrackPad Driver\Device Select" /v EnableTrackPad /t REG_DWORD /d 1 /f
To turn the trackpad on, run 
reg add "HKCU\Software\Cypress TrackPad Driver\Device Select" /v EnableTrackPad /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f
Note that turning the trackpad off shows a slight delay in it taking effect.
To automate these commands, save each command to a batch file, e.g. turnoff.bat, turnon.bat, then you can run them from either the windows run command (Window key + start typing path to the bat file) or via a short-cut app, like slickrun.

I have a Lenovo ThinkPad E560. Above the number pad, there are four keys, a calculator, a lock, a sphere that means "internet", and a folder. Three of them (calculator, internet, folder) work, but the "lock screen" does nothing. I have tried:1. Installing "Lenovo Hotkey Features Integration" for Windows 10 off the Lenovo website2. Pressing the "Fn" key while pressing the lock screen key Neither of these things made it work. The key is not physically broken - if I press it in certain contexts (such as when the Desktop is showing) I get a Windows "ding" sound (the same way you get if you press any other key Windows doesn't recognize at the Desktop). For some reason the system just doesn't seem to know what to do with it, even with Lenovo Hotkey Features Integration installed. This is a brand-new install of Windows 10 on a laptop I just bought (used), so I cannot say whether or not the key worked in the past. I *can* lock Windows using the Windows key + L shortcut. Does anyone have any ideas how to get the "lock screen" key working?

I don't know what the latest update was but it updated when I was shutting down my laptop (Compaq CQ60). I am running Win7 Ultimate x86 and have never had any problems.

I plugged in my USB mouse from my PC and the laptop accepted it and let me use the mouse, but I was still unable to use my keyboard/touchpad

I also noticed that my laptop did a Checkdisk or something along that lines, I believe thats what its called.

Please any information will be appreciated!

I also tried to locate a driver for the touchpad but HP's website did not have anything listed for the Compaq Presario CQ60-410US model.

Should I consider uninstalling the recent update if I can or what? Little stuck and frustrated.

Hi everyone, I'm new here and was wondering if I could get some help with the most frustrating problem I've come across since I got this computer.

About a week ago, I was using my computer and although I had downloaded the next to latest Windows Update I had not restarted my computer for the changes to come into effect. I normally leave it running, so this was the first time in a couple of days that my machine was off, for any reason. After it booted back up, however, it could not connect to the internet either by LAN or WLAN even though it says it is connected and I can browse the other computers/devices on my network.

I disabled my wireless card in case of conflict and tried to connect solely by ethernet cord to my wireless router, but it did not work. I then tried giving it a direct connection to the modem, but still no dice. The router is definitely not the problem because the other wired and wireless devices around my house connect perfectly to the internet. I know the ethernet cord isn't a problem also as I've tried connecting my PS3 to the router with it and it worked fine.

Since I know the LAN hardware is there, I tried to reinstall the drivers from Dell's website (an Intel LAN driver and a Realtek one) but was told by the Realtek driver installer that there was no hardware detected which only served to confuse me further.

I only want to reinstall Vista if I really, really have to...but if it has to be done, it has to be done. Thanks in advance for any he... Read more

Hi!I see there are a lot of questions regarding the Radeon Video Display drivers.Anyone else experience this:After the latest patching of the Radeon video drivers last week (12th. of August) my screen turned black. If I try to reboot the display freeze after about 15 seconds - during the boot process (with the dots going around under the HP logo!) It took some time before I realized what was wrong, so I completely reinstalled the Windows 10 OS twice. So this is what happens:- I completely wipe the HD with a new Windows 10 installation.- I get a notification that the Radeon video driveres is not optimal.- And after about 20-30 minutes the screen goes black.- If I try to reboot, the machine is stuck on the HP logo with the dots going around! I did this procedure twice before I understood that nothing is actually wrong with the computer.The second time I managed to change the boot procedure so I could press F8 and push the machine into Safe boot. So now the goal is to find correct drivers, and downgrade in Safe mode. Anyone tried that? Is there a trick, maby download the drivers on another machine and bring them over using a USB stick? Kind regards,Jarle

There is no driver installed for it and it doesn't appear in the device manager. If I do a search for new hardware it is not detected. I tried the fn f7 but this did not help. I tried using Acer Recovery but the touchpad is not listed so I can't load the driver. I even checked the website and again no driver for the touchpad. I have run out of ideas.

This may sound silly.  Because it's the first thing most would do.  But you didn't mention it. Did you check settings to make sure the touchpad is enabled?  You may have turned it off when setting up the mouse. To access settings in Win 8.1 it's Windows Key + C.  Or you can getting there by swiping right and bringing up the charms.

Hi everyone! I have a Toshiba Satellite M305 that I upgraded from Vista to 7. I performed the Upgrade but had issues immediately (black screen, constant freezing)... so I backed up everything and did a clean Windows 7 install.

Now I have a fresh install. Worked fine, downloaded updates, and now the keyboard any touchpad will not work. USB keyboard & mice work fine though.

Under device manager, it shows the keyboard as PS2, but no errors. For the touchpad it says "PS2 Mouse" (but it's a touchpad), and error code 10.

I noticed that if I uninstall the "mouse" and reboot, the touchpad will work until next reboot.

Next, I downloaded new Synaptic drivers and even tried the Toshiba driver pack. Didn't work... the uninstall trick doesn't work now either.

I'm not sure what's going on. Any ideas? I am leaning on a bad update from Windows update. I have searched Google and found numerous similar problems but cannot seem to get this resolved.

Thanks for any help! I can provide any more info that may be needed.

A:Windows 7 Touchpad & Keyboard not working

Since the install is probably still pretty clean, maybe you could try reinstalling again (I know, I know...) and installing your mouse drivers right off the bat from the Toshiba Website. Of course, be sure it's the right version of the driver, you know x86/x64, and for Vista/7.

This is my best guess, but if you have more pertinent info, maybe we can work something out.

A:touchpad stopped working after windows 10

Following a thread from earlier Microsoft forums, this worked for me yesterday to restore trackpad function. Go to the Acer driver page for your computer. Download the intel IO chipset drivers for Windows 8.1. Run the setup for the driver in "compatability mode" and install. You will need to restart the computer. The computer will then recognize the trackpad as a valid device. Then download and install the Synaptics (or Elan) driver for Win 10 from the Acer support page and restart. If the trackpad is not immediatley active on the restart, hit Function F7. At least this fixed it for me.

Hey, after several hours of searching today for a solution for my non-working touchpad after the update to W10 some weeks ago, going through this whole forum, installing and uninstalling all kinds of drivers etc. I found a solution in another forum: All I had to do was pressing Fn - F7 on my Acer Nitro to enable the touchpad... Somehow the Windows 10 update seems to disable it since I never disabled/endabled it before - it never occured to me that this switch would somehow overrule all other settings etc. So before you go into a driver frenzy, try this one first... :-) Cheers, Tom

Hey, after several hours of searching today for a solution for my non-working touchpad after the update to W10 some weeks ago, going through this whole forum, installing and uninstalling all kinds of drivers etc. I found a solution in another forum: All I had to do was pressing Fn - F7 on my Acer Nitro to enable the touchpad... Somehow the Windows 10 update seems to disable it since I never disabled/endabled it before - it never occured to me that this switch would somehow overrule all other settings etc. So before you go into a driver frenzy, try this one first... :-) Cheers, Tom

A:Solution for Windows 10 touchpad not working

My Iconia W510 showed similar problems. The touchpad worked under Win 10 for almost a week before it stopped responding. I did try Fn+F7 but to no avail. Drivers nor hardware could not be found in device manager, thus not reinstalled either. Win 10's system restore function did the trick for me.

Since upgrading my HP laptop to Windows 10 my touchpad has completely stopped working. I currently use a USB mouse but this isnt a solution.  First of all, when I unplug my USB mouse the pointer disappears completely. If I go into device manager in the 'mouse and other poiinting devices' section there doesnt seem to be an option for a touchpad. I have installed the most up to date drivers for the touch pad off your website countless times. I have tried reinstalling Windows 3 times and nothing has changed. I have had an on going conversation with Windows support for about 5 months and nothing has been resolved. I am incredibly disappointed with both HP and Windows for the lack of support and solutions to an update which was supposed to impove my computer experience. Here is the link to my conversation with Windows regarding this matter. I'm attaching it for reference so you can read it and perhaps suggest alternative options which haven't already been suggested to me. http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_10-hardware/trackpad-no-longer-working-does...

Laptop: Toshiba Satellite C655D-S5518
OS: Windows 8 Pro (clean install)

I recently purchased and updated to Windows 8 Pro. The touchpad works just fine but noticed gestures are not working. I did a Windows update, gestures still do not work. Weird how it's providing an older driver but I still tried it.

I then went to Synaptics website and downloaded and installed the lastest Windows 8 driver. I'm still not getting any gestures.

Under mouse settings in the control panel, my only options to configure buttons are left/right. No gesture settings. Other screenshots of this window I have seen have all kinds of gesture options.

Anyone have any suggestions to get gestures working for my laptop? Simple scrolling gesture would be nice!

If any other info is needed that I didn't already explain, please ask. Thanks!

I just recently bought a Lenovo B570e. I've installed Windows 8 Pro 64bit on it. I want to get the windows 8 gestures on my touchpad. I've tried many things... installed two or three versions of Synaptics. The one on my laptop's drivers CD, from the synaptics website, from the lenovo's drivers page, and a couple others. With synaptics I can't get any gestures, even the scroll feature isn't working. I tried ELan on my drivers CD... and that enabled pinch to zoom and scrolling but how can I get all the Windows 8 gestures on my touch pad. Please tell me a step by step procedure, cause I'm not that good on these things yet.
 

A:Windows 8 gestures on touchpad not working

If the latest Lenovo drivers from the laptop's website don't do it, it is probable that your system does not support it. Remember that the gestures for Windows 8 were designed for touch screens, not touch-pads. I have a Samsung Series 7; it also doesn't support all of the gestures.

However, to overcome this, I purchased a Logitech Touchpad (the T650, I think). It does support the gestures. It is wireless and rechargeable.

I upgraded my yoga 2 pro to windows 10 last night.  I went to the support page and downloaded all new drivers for the thing, in particular the synaptics touch pad drivers.  Before I did that, gesture support was severly limited.  Despite the settings saying it was enabled, two finger tap and scrolling was disabled. In any event, after I got the latest drivers, I discovered the following.. (i define a tap as just a forceful touch, where as a click involves pressing the trackpad until it clicks) single finger tapping workssingle finger clicking works.two finger tapping does not worktwo finger clicking does worktwo finger scrolling worksI suspect most two finger gestures work, but I havent tested them all.three finger gestures workfour finger gestures work basically, everything works as the settings dialogs were configured, except two finger tap.  two finger click works just fine.  Ive got the v19.0.9.5 19May15 synptics driver installed.  The config tool to adjust gestures works, and most of its settings are behaving properly. Just two finger tap is failing. Any thoughts?

A:Yoga 2 Touchpad in Windows 10 not quite working

Thoughts? Yes! Why did you change that Microsoft? Three fingers "back" is not working any more, instead it's "show tasks". Which I never used before. I cannot change it in the touchpad settings. Again: WHY?

A:touchpad stopped working after windows 10

Following a thread from earlier Microsoft forums, this worked for me yesterday to restore trackpad function. Go to the Acer driver page for your computer. Download the intel IO chipset drivers for Windows 8.1. Run the setup for the driver in "compatability mode" and install. You will need to restart the computer. The computer will then recognize the trackpad as a valid device. Then download and install the Synaptics (or Elan) driver for Win 10 from the Acer support page and restart. If the trackpad is not immediatley active on the restart, hit Function F7. At least this fixed it for me.

I have a Dell Vostro 1400 laptop. After upgrading to Windows 7, I no longer have touchpad control settings. (I usually disable my touchpad when using a mouse). I no longer have this option.
