S540 Touchpad not working

Q: S540 Touchpad not working

The Touchpad on a cliŽnts S540 is not working anymore. It started with complaints about non-responsiveness when the laptop woke from sleep (after being closed and opened).I've tried to install the latest drivers (18.0.7.99) from the Lenovo website but that didn't give a solution. The laptop is running Windows 7 Professional 64bit.

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 recently updated my os on my S540 from windows 7 to windows 10 and updated all drivers + bios. Now my shift keys are not working. I don't think it is a hardware problem, because they stopped working both at the same time. I used the keyboard test from the lenovo and it said everything is fine...Had the same problem on Ubuntu, so it isn't os related. Are there any known problems with drivers or the bios related to the keyboard of the S540?

I purchased a new Ideapad S540-14IWL recently but couldn't find a way how to connect a secondary display via HDMI. I use Windows 10 Pro. So far I've tried the following:- using different monitors;- using different HDMI cables;- installing newer and older Intel VGA drivers;- going through the Windows 10 video troubleshooter;- switching off the laptop and/or the monitor and powering them in various sequences (as suggested in a few articles I found on the Internet);- tried to switch to the second display using Win+P, of course. No matter what, Windows is not able to detect a connected display (even after I manually push the 'Detect' button). The display itself finds no signal. Surprisingly, the Lenovo diagnostics utility couldn?t identify a problem after running both the Display and the Display Interface tests. The laptop is flashed with the latest BIOS. I read other Lenovo models have similar issued when AHCI mode is selected in the BIOS rather than RST. However, switching to RST comes with a warning that the controller change will result in all the data being erased, which I can't afford.  Any help on that issue will be appreciated.

Hello,I used my laptop for a couple of days and I couldn't get to make Lenovo performance mode (pressing Fn + Q to change fan speed) to work. I've seen this thread, but I don't want to risk installing wrong software. Anyone knows how to solve it without manually going to BIOS every time, and if that software is compatible with my laptop? Edit: I forgot to mention, whole software/drivers are up-to-date, both via Lenovo Vantage and via Windows Update (System version: Windows 10 Pro 1909 18363.476)

I have a ThinkPad S540 with a OneLink Dock (not Pro). It has work fine for several years until today. Power is getting through to the laptop from the dock but none of ports (USB, Network and HDMI) work. Ihave tried to install a new driver however, after installation I get the message:"Unable to execute file:C:\SWTOOLS\DRIVERS\TP_Onelink_Driver_v11019.exeCreateProcess failed code 740.The requested operation requires elevation". It looks to me like the Dock has died but somehow the power supply to the laptop can carry on while the cleve stuff has stopped working. Any help appreciated.

You can try a program called DriverBooster. It can update/install missing drivers and replace faulty drivers. All of the drivers on the program are Microsoft WHQL tested and approved which means they are safe.

As you can see there are multiple problems that have come up in this notebook. I recently reinstalled windows 10 to solve some other problems. The installation went perfect and afterward everything seemed to work fine. When my wife turned it on the blue BIOS screen came on (as it did before the installation) and I was unable to use the touchpad, mouse or arrow keys to move the selection. I rebooted and it started up fine only the keyboard did not work. I had to use the onscreen keyboard to log in. Once inside, sometimes the keyboard works and sometimes it doesn't. I've tried using the f6 to toggle the touchpad on but it didn't work. The keyboard is touch and go and now the blue screen BIOS sometimes comes up when the computer is started. Any suggestions would be appreciated. I've searched for solutions and haven't been able to find anything that works to solve these problems. I've uninstalled the drivers and rebooted for a fresh re-install of the drivers but that only temporarily fixes the problem. Thank you.

Hello Tristan,

Welcome to the forums.

Been a while since I had a laptop, but I seem to remember there being a setting on what to do with the touchpad when the mouse is plugged in. Unfortunately I don't remember where and have no way of finding it.

Have you tried rebooting with the mouse unplugged?

Sorry I can't be of more help. The manual for the laptop ought to have that info in it somewhere.

so i have a problem with my touchpad. and i know you guys will probably say "check to see if it's disabled", but in this case it's different. when i boot up my laptop, right after the hp logo screen (and before windows even loads up), it says "F1 to continue or F10 for BIOS setup". and everytime, this screen pops up, the touchpad won't work. and if i press F10, the touch pad won't work in BIOS. basically, the touchpad idn't detected by the BIOS. in windows, there is no way to disable an enable the touchpad. there is no enable/disable option in device manager for the touchpad. there hasn't been any spills or breadcrums or...i think it is a hardware failure, but i am not sure. i think it is more of a "power not getting to the touchpad" failure. and btw, is there anyway to forcibly launch the synaptics touchpad program in windows? and this might seem strange, but the touchpad stopped working after i did this:1.

Hi negozin ,
 
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
 
Have you checked the hidden devices on device manager if any of those would show with any yellow marks / unknown device? The support site do offer Touchpad driver for Win10 that you can try .
 
You can Reset the BIOS defaults by turning off the pc and using the Novo key to access BIOS set up . F9 to load defaults and F10 to save and exit . Allow to restart and check if touchpad would be able to move the mouse.  
 
Update us how it goes.

Hey all,

I have an Asus EEE 901, and a little while ago it fell off the table and the screen smashed. So I bought a replacement, opened the machine up and replaced the screen. No issues with that.

Unfortunately in the process I damaged the touchpad ribbon cable (I think). I bought a new ribbon cable and am still having problems. So when I boot up into Windows I couldn't move the mouse with the inbuilt trackpad unless I plugged in an external mouse. This is also the same if I boot to a Live DVD. There is nothing in the bios I can see to disable the touchpad. Under windows, under "mouse" in control panel there was nothing listed.

The cable is in firmly and correctly, I have looked and can't see any damage to it. When it was plugged in I licked the other end (the touchpad end) to confirm the cable is definitely connected at the motherboard end (and works). I have tried it both ways round at the touchpad end.

I have just this second upgraded the OS to Windows 7 to eliminate the possibility of it being software related. Still the same issue - what can I do?

I spent £6 on this cable and £30 on the screen, the whole machine is worth around £130, I really don't want to be spending any more or I might as well sell and get a replacement (which I don't want the hassle of)! Any suggestions?

Hi, guys. I have acer aspire v nitro vn7-791g and my touchpad does not work. After I upgraded my ram, the touchpad no longer works. I might have pulled the cable, but I re-checked and everything seems to be connected, but there is no touchpad in the device manager. I tried using the fn+f7 option, but that didn't work either. Tried installing drivers, no luck. I have no idea what to do.

A:Touchpad not working

Visit Download Drivers and Manuals | Acer Official Site and see if you can download the touchpad drivers there. My guess is that Device Manager will have an unknown device showing to which you can attempt to install this driver. It may very well fix your problem. OTOH, if this driver has an .exe (or equivalent programmatic) installer, you should be able to run it and get the driver working that way. Please give it a try and let us know what happens. You can fix this.

A friend asked me to look at his Toshiba Satellite Pro Laptop as he thinks he has had some sort of infection.

The only thing i can find wrong is the Touch-pad is not working. Plugin Mouse is fine.
All that is showing in Device Manager is:

Mice and other pointing devices
- HID-compliant Mouse
- Unknown Device

I have downloaded both Synaptics & Alps Drivers from the Toshiba site, these did not seem to have any effect.

Looking about the Forums, i found out about Enabling/Disabling Touchpads...

No actual switch i can find....BUT the major problem is it will not let me into Control Panel--->Mouse ....just get an error box with no error showing

Also tried using the Command prompt with CONTROL MOUSE (or) MAIN.CPL but still no good

Go to device manager (type it in on start menu search) and go to 'Mice and other pointing devices'. Double click on the 'PS2 Port Touchpad' (or something like that) and look at driver status. If there is anything interesting, please tell us.

A:Touchpad not working

If it's fully functional in Safe Mode then the hardware is good. Try a System Restore to a time prior to when the problem 1st started. There could be an issue with the device driver, although why it would only show up in "normal mode" I can't say. Well, it could be malware hiding as your touchpad's driver, but that's a bit "out there" at this point. Might be worth checking Hardware manager, click "show hidden devices" and report any flagged devices there might be.
