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.)

Hi guys,I bought a new 510-15IKB (i5-7200U type). It came with DOS, I installed win10 and configured everything, installed drivers etc. My problem is the fan, it keeps working constantly in idle, even on battery, on battery saver mode, so it just totally neglects the energy management settings (passive cooling, etc.) and CPU temps (34 Celsius and the fan keeps working).The fan is working in its lowest state (maybe, never heard it be quieter), so the problem is not a loud fan, rather that the fan never turns off during idle. I'm an IT guy, I know how to make things work etc, but this just can't be solved by me.What I tried:- Restart etc.- Reinstall drivers from support page downloads- Install newest drivers from parts manufacturers (intel etc.)- Set different energy management settings- Updated UEFI to newest version- updated win10 totally- even tried it using an Ubuntu live session and it is the same And there is a strange buzzing sound on movement if it is perpendicular to the surface of the fan, it's really quiet, but happens on smaller movements too, and it even happened once while the laptop was completely still on the table. This part of my problem might be totally normal, so my bigger problem is with it not turning off.What could be done?

Hi,

I seem to have gotten a virus yesterday. I did nothing special, didn't download anything or go on sketchy sites.

The symptoms are:
Mouse movements horizontally, by a random amount of pixel between 0 and 100 roughly.
Mouse left/right-clicks
Both of above happen independently at a random interval between twice a second and once every 5 seconds.

Nothing suspicious on msconfig, registry, running processes etc
It's a very light setup with Windows 7 x64. I have development software /MSSQL/Office and some essentials on it and that's it. The partition is only 26gb.
It's not a hardware problem. It does it without a mouse connected.
There is not weird outgoing connections on netstat
I had Trend's Internet Security installed when it got infected

Today, I scanned with everything I can find in safe mode. There is no problems in safe mode. It didn't find any problems except some cookies
I boot back in normal mode and the mouse doesn't move randomly anymore. Trend Internet Security somehow stopped running and I can't uninstall it anymore.

Hi all, This is a pretty old and known problem for Lenovo laptops. My old one from 2011 had just the same problem as my new one. The issue is that touchpad behaves badly only from time to time, like for a minute every hour. If I leave it be for this period of time, next time I touch it, all is fine and movement of the cursor is usual.Does anybody know a ready solution for IdeaPad 510? Is it drivers? I have found just some mentioning of motherboard drivers, but updating them made no progress. Maybe there is a known set of drivers that were seen to fix the issue? Thanks for the help!

Hi, I am an Englishman living in Bulgaria. I am no spring chicken and more of a computer user than a technician so am limited in what I can do albiet, I can follow simple instructions, but I have most probably already tried every 'fix' I could find on the Internet and the Touchpad is completely unresponsive and yet, an external USB Mouse works just fine. I had to have Windows 10 Home Version 1903 unistalled and intalled again today to solve a non-responsive Taskbar search failure as I had no search anywhere working and that resolved that issue, but not the completely dead greyed out Touchpad. Clicking between F6 for on/off does nothing, just shows me a greyed out unresponsive Touchpad.

I recieved my Pavillion Laptop 15-au070sa for Christmas 2016, so I've had it less than three weeks, and I'm finding that clicking the mousepad is way too hard, my hands are painfull within minutes. The pressure needed to click the mousepad is way higher than it should be, and I cannot find a way to alter the pressure in the settings. I have now got a bluetooth mouse, which helps when I am sitting at a table. However, most of the time I use my laptop on my lap, so I don't have room for an external mouse, plus, I don't see why I should be placed in a position where I have no option but to use an external mouse. How should I deal with this please?

Hi, I have an Ideapad Y430 that was purchased January this year. The problem I am facing is that the touchpad mouse goes crazy when I am sitting with the laptop at certain angles.Particularly, if I am lounging on a couch with the laptop sitting in my lap... The mouse pointer goes crazy and windows start opening up and I can see left and right click menus coming up on the screen even when I am not touching the mousepad on the laptop.I have no problems using USB mouse though.I was wondering if anyone here has faced a similar problem and if so, what is the solution.I have tried checking for updated drivers and even installing Windows 7 but it is the same problem no matter what and it is pretty frustrating. I will appreciate any help on the issue Thanks,Sunny

A:Help! Ideapad touchpad mouse goes crazy.

I think the case interferes with the mouse when you rest your hands on it. My Fujitso, Dell and Lenovo have the same problems. It is ok if I don't lean my hands on the case and just touch the keys. Maybe the have the same vendor making the mouse pad.

When you say delayed do you mean that the left mouse button does not work for a certain period of time? What happens if you try to push the button before this delayed period is up? A good place to start is to possibly try reinstalling the synaptic software and see where you get from there.... What is the specific model of your pc?

Up until the most recent windows 10 home Automatic update (version 1709), I've been able to use the mouse properites settings to turn off the touchpad to avoid accidental clicks and mouse movement, and instead use the trackpoint only.  I can select to still use "gestures" to scroll, zoom, etc, and use the touchpad to right and left click. Since the update, the left and right click buttons are unresponsive, unless I use the mouse properties to fully enable the touchpad. This seems like a software glitch.  When I downloaded and tried to reinstall the drivers from lenovo, the installation package tells me it can't find a synaptics device.  Anyone else run into this?Thanks.

A really strange behavour happens on my E460: when I use touchpad to left click on a file, it becomes a mouse hold, which means if I move the mouse pointer at this moment, the file is dragged. I can only release the mouse hold by doing a mouse click again. It really makes a lot of trouble as it causes me to accidentally drag some files. Also, when I am using excel, when I click on a cell, due to the mouse click becomes a mouse hold, so when I move the mouse pointer, it begins to highlight a range of cells. I tried to updated the BIOS, and also update to the latest touchpad driver, but none of them solve the problem. I can only solve the problem by removing the touchpad driver, but this cause all the useful features (e.g. scrolling by using 2 fingers) disappear. Also, it causes another problem. When I'm using excel, I can't double click a cell to edit the text inside. I need to triple click to edit, which is very strange. So removing the touchpad driver can solve one problem but bringing two other problems........ Anyone had such kind of issues too? Any way to solve it? Thanks.

so i have the Lenovo ideapad 320. I have had it for 5 days now. This morning zhen i woke up my touchpad mouse was disabled so i had to enable it again. After enabling it i realised that i can't scroll or zoom in/out anymore with my touchpad. So i downloaded a Recommended ELan on the lenovo site that was listed with the ideapad. After downloading it i realised it wasn't for an ideapad but for a notebook. I quickly deleted this but now my mouse (touchpad) is acting weird and i still can scrool/zoom.

Hi afrojacksed  , 
 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums .
 
For missing drivers in Device Manager:
 
Most drivers uploaded from the support site are certified tested drivers by the manufacturer's engineers .
This doesn't limit users to customize their installation of operating system and likewise drivers .
 
Microsoft Windows 7 would also have its own native driver thru device manager update driver option. 
On device manager , update driver and browse my computer , let me pick  option for the generic driver. 
 
or
 
Just like having a custom built machine with a retail OS to get proper drivers you can use the hardware ID's and getting it directly from the manufacturer of the device .
 
Steps using hardware ID then searching it via google.
Checking on PCIDatabase for the manufacturer /vendor and related drivers.
 
 
For Hotkey specific buttons: 
 
Download and install this  . 
Check also on Hotkey if enabled on BIOS .
Turn off the pc and use the Novo Button (number 6 page 7) 
From the Novo menu choose BIOS set up. Configuration tab , hotkey switch. 
Then save and exit from the Exit Tab .
 
 
Update us how it goes.

So - I have a new AF131 laptop (not a notebook since this forum doesn't seem to recognize that in its list of topics) which I am very disappointed with in that it doesn't include "tap zones" in its touchpad driver.  My last two laptops each had this feature as part of the synaptics driver but this one doesn't. For those who don't know this - the tap zones are the corner spots of the touchpad that can be configured to perform certain actions for you, or not.  Personally I set up two corners to do a "window maximize" and a "window close" and use them constantly. Why doesn't this new laptop include those features?  Or - is there a newer driver that my current laptop doesn't know about, since I checked if there was an update to the driver and was told by the laptop that there isn't.

Hello, im trying to figure out, how to enable 3 finger tap for a middle mouse click on my yoga 720 15. There are some solutions out there suggesting editing the registry, but i don't have the entries they name and no other entries, that could be related to the touchpad for that matter. The device manager lists the touchpad simply as "hid-compatible touchpad" with no further information. I even tried installing the synaptics software on the off chance, that that would work, but it said, that no synaptic device was detected.

I recently purchased an XPS 15 9550 and I need middle mouse click in some of my applications. Under touchpad settings, It only allows mapping 3-finger click to Cortana or Activity Center. Does anyone know how I can get the touchpad to send a middle mouse click to my applications?  On previous laptops I have owned, they typically included a Synaptics touchpad, which always made it easy to perform this mapping using a 3-finger click, but it seems like Dell has included something custom and no such options appear to be available. Any help would be appreciated.

A:Left Mouse Click on Laptop Touchpad stopped working

I assume you have checked your settings in Control Panel > Mouse Properties?

It will save a lot of time if you can determine whether this is a hardware problem or a software problem.
Try this: Download a copy of UBUNTU. Put this on a USB stick. Boot from the USB stick and choose to Run The Program (you do not need to install it on your hard drive). Then check to see if the mousepad works OK in UBUNTU. If it does then it is a Windows/Software problem. If it doesn't then it is a defective mousepad.

I have a Dell XPS 14z which is about 11 months old. I have Windows 7. I am having trouble with left-clicking.

I first noticed the problem while working in AutoCAD. I suddenly stopped being able to use my left-click button at all. I hit ctrl+S to save so that I could reboot, hoping the button would resume functioning when I restarted. Strangely left-click immediately started working again. Initially I only had this problem in AutoCAD. The semester ended and I stopped using AutoCAD. I was assuming that there was a problem with that program and planned to reinstall before the next (this) semester of school.

Then, I started experiencing left-click problems while browsing the internet, I use Chrome. I do tend to open a lot of tabs at a time when I am running a search, don't know if this is relevant. Left-click sometimes would randomly stop working, sometimes it would just lag - click..... wait.... action long after expected, sometimes it would randomly also start working again. Sometimes when using the left button to drag a scroll bar in chrome it would "stick" (the function would stay on, the button did not appear to be physically stuck and this happens with mouse or touchpad) and moving the cursor away from the scroll bar would navigate the page up and down. The non functional left-click problem would also occur in Windows, when I would say attempt to go into device manager to see what was up.

Hello and welcome JM looks like you have tried just about everything maybe you are looking at a warranty job my friend because I was going to suggest cleaning the mouse but if the same thing happens with the touch pad then that isn't much help.

If most of the drivers or whatever software fixes have not worked then just maybe a problem with the internal connections as you say a hardware issue, it only takes one dry joint or a dodgy cap to throw the whole thing out.

By the way you haven't spilt anything on the machine or dropped it or maybe a voltage spike if you have been using the mains adaptor without a surge protection device?

I have a brand new Latitude E7470 (Windows 10 Pro) which has some good and some (surprisingly) awful bits, but so far the most surprising and frustrating is that when I tap the touchpad - which acts as a left click - about 90% of the time the mouse pointer moves a few pixels - maybe 10? - before the click event is registered. This doesn't sound like much, but it makes the touchpad at best incredibly frustrating, and at worst unusable.
To clarify: I'm moving the mouse pointer using the touchpad (which works pretty well). I position the mouse pointer over a clickable item - a link in a web page, the "x" to close a tab, a button, etc. - and then use the single tap motion, which should register the same as the left mouse button below the touchpad. And it does register that left click, but the mouse pointer visibly moves several pixels - most often up, but occasionally left or right or diagonally. As a result, the click event either doesn't register, or more likely the pointer isn't over the clickable component anymore so it's like I clicked above or beside it.
I've spent hours experimenting with this, including going back and forth between the new E7470, my ~4 year old Precision M4700, and Macbook Air, just in case this is something weird about how I tap. No matter how carefully (and unnaturally) I click tap on the E7470, the pointer moves. On the other two laptops the pointer never moves when I tap, and simply registers the tap/click event where...

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.

I have weird issues after the last fall creators update of Windows 10 on my relatively new ideapad 100s 11iby.On battery mode mouse and touchpad stop working after 2 unused seconds. To reactivate I only need to hit a key on the keyboard or a mouse/touchpad button. With this issue, the notebook is nearly unusable... I solved half of the problem with the informations in this link:https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_10-hardware/touchpad-disables-when-on-batt... The Touchpad acts totally normal again, but the Mouse-problem still exists. Is this a known problem or does a solution (workaround) exist? Best regardsB.

  Hi all, The touchpad on the computer seems to be loose. It is an 11e Yoga 3rd Gen (20GE) The whole touchpad has vertical movement up and down, that is completely separate from the click portion at the bottom of the touchpad (the downward movement seen in the video below does not activate the click. It moves down further than that to activate the click as it should.) It seems almost like it wasn't tightened down completely. That makes it a little hard to slide your finger across it and navigate when it's moving around on you. Does this touchpad have an adjustment to tighten it down? I have uploaded a clip to Youtube here:   Thanks for any help.
