The touchpad on my HP 840 G1 is going crazy! I upgraded from Win 8.1. and installed all the appropriate drivers from the HP page, but the touchpad enhancements keeps failing randomly, with material (supposedly) copied to the clipboard being replaced by the failure message and the entire Mouse options panel being inaccessible because "Control Panel extension is incompatible with Driver". At times, the whole thing is barely functional and it's quite a nuisance because I use this machine for work. What do I do?

I have a new Acer Aspire 1670 laptop which has worked fine for the past few weeks. However, I turned it on this morning (it worked fine last night) to find that my touchpad no longer works.

I don't feel this is a hardware issue in the sense that the touchpad has become unplugged from the internal PS/2 port, because the touchpad works for about 3-4 seconds after I log onto Windows/when the desktop loads up. That's the only time it works, it doesn't even work at the welcome/logon screen.

After those 3-4 seconds, something obviously happens that's preventing it from working.

I thought it might be my Wacom Graphire II graphics tablet, which is plugged in via USB 2. However, my touchpad and tablet have worked fine together for the past few weeks and have never caused any problems.

I unplugged the tablet, and uninstalled the tablet and touchpad drivers. I then rebooted, and - navigating around with the keyboard - reinstalled the touchpad drivers and rebooted. It still won't work.

Any ideas?
 

A:Synaptics touchpad suddenly stopped working

Two things:

1. Does the touchpad have an indicator light that shows you when it is activated? The one on my HP does.

2. Is there an On/Off button above the touchpad...there is on my HP. Did you accidently turn it OFF

Hello,

I want to thank in advance for any responses I get to this thread.

I have a Gateway laptop model MT6840. It has a Synaptics touchpad. A couple of days ago, the touchpad stopped working completely. I took my laptop out of sleep mode, and the icon for the touchpad in the system tray was simply gone. I checked Control Panel: Mouse: Device Settings for the Synaptic touchpad, but all options are merely grayed out, and the device does not register on the computer anymore.

I believe I have tried almost everything. I first tried rebooting. I then tried disconnecting my external mouse and then rebooting. Then I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the driver from the Gateway website. I looked on Google, but found nothing of use. Alas, none of these things have worked.

This is a bit frustrating because, although I do have an external mouse, it is much more convenient not to have to bring the external mouse around when I transport it. And since I'm a college student, I need to get around with my laptop quite often.

I don't believe it is anything related to the hardware because it stopped working when the software (apparently) magically disappeared. I would really like to solve this problem.

If anyone knows of anything, please let me know. If there is some detail I should mention that would help, please also let me know.

Thanks,
Minus
 

A:Gateway MT6840: Synaptics Touchpad stopped working

Well, I decided to reboot again and go into the BIOS. I did, changing absolutely nothing (even choosing the "discard changes" exit option), logged onto Windows, and the problem was solved.

I have no idea how that worked, but it did.

I can't find a delete thread option, so if an admin is reading this, go ahead and just delete this.

I recently purchased a Razer Carcharias which has a low microphone. I have to put the microphone boost on +30db for it to be adequate for ventrilo/teamspeak.

With that being said, it has static due to the extreme microphone boost. There's an "enhancements" tab under the microphones properties which has the options: DC Offset Cancellation, Noise Suppression, and Acoustic Echo Cancellation.

I checked "Noise Suppression", this completely removes the static in my microphone, but muffles my voice slightly (which is fine).

Now I decided to plug in my old headset (microphone part only) in, and run some quality comparison tests using Windows Sound Recorder. After I was done and plugged my Razer microphone in, the Noise Suppression option stopped working completely.

I've tried using the back jacks, front jacks, and I even reinstall drivers, and used older drivers. I can't get the Noise Suppression option to remove my static, it has no effect checked or not.(And it used to before) How can I fix this?

Hi, I have a Dell Inspiron B130, yes old I know. Long story short, let a friend borrow it who prefers a regular mouse, they installed it. Now I cant get my touchpad to work AT ALL. I have gone through Dell website and downloaded driver, nothing is working. Under my Control Panel-Mouse- under hardware all I have is "HID compliant mouse" I do have a tab that has the Synaptics symbol and the word buttons, no option to enable it anywhere. If anybody can help me it would be greatly appreciated!!

it maybe one of the functions keys - on Toshiba and HP I know the function Key F9 or F11 with FN key
so you hold the FN key down (on toshiba a drop down menu appears at the top of the screen ) and then press f9 or f11 or any key that has a symbol that may look correct
that will toggle between enable and disable the touch pad

My computer is a Toshiba Satellite L305 and has a Synaptics TouchPad. I use Windows Vista.

For a few weeks I had been getting messages saying "Synaptics TouchPad has stopped working, click here to solve the problem" or something similar. I didn't think anything of it because the mouse was working fine, so I just hit the "X". I'm not even sure that is a part of the problem even because it has stopped coming up.

Lately the mouse will work fine and after being on the computer for about an hour or so, the mouse will slowly stop working. I can still click and when I tap the touchpad, that will still click. I just won't be able to move the mouse. Restarting the computer does not fix it. Usually I just plug in a mouse and use it for 20-30 minutes and by then the mouse is working fine again.

Any suggestions?

Hi. My touchpad  is not working. I tried all uninstall and reinstall the driver but doesnt work. I hope you guys can help me.

A:Synaptics Touchpad not working

Hi, You could try the following. Hold down the Windows key and press R Into the Run window, type devmgmt.msc and hit enter. In Device Manager, expand Mice and other pointing devices.  Right click the Synaptics device and select Uninstall - you should also get a prompt to remove the current driver, tick the box to allow this and then proceed with the uninstall. When this has completed, shutdown the notebook and then disconnect any peripherals ( ie usb mouse etc ). Unplug the AC Adapter and then remove the battery.  Hold down the Power button for 30 seconds.  Re-insert the battery and plug in the AC Adapter. Tap away at the esc key as you start the notebook to launch the Start-up Menu and then select f10 to enter the bios menu.  Press f9 to load the defaults ( this is sometimes f5, but the menu at the bottom will show the correct key ), use the arrow keys to select 'Yes' and hit enter.  Press f10 to save the setting and again use the arrow keys to select 'Yes' and hit enter. Let windows fully load and see if you have basic touchpad functionality - if you do, download and install the Synaptics driver below. http://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp58501-59000/sp58572.exe When this installation has completed, restart the notebook again. Regards, DP-K

I'm on a Compaq Presario CQ50 laptop with Windows XP, and the other day when I hard-shutdown the computer and restarted, it booted up with a loud, long beep until I forced it to shut down again. When I restarted, the touchpad no longer functioned, and I've been using a USB mouse since. Also, occasionally the keyboard doesn't function after coming back from hibernating, though a restart fixes this.

I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the Synaptics driver, but although the driver appears to have been installed (the Program Files are present, as is the Add/Remove entry), the Synaptics TouchPad is not listed under Device Manager nor is it listed under Device Settings in the Mouse properties under Control Panel. Why isn't the driver fully reinstalling back again?

I've read on other similar problems to try checking to see if power is being sent to these devices under the BIOS, but apparently Compaqs are notorious for being difficult to get into the BIOS, so I haven't had luck doing that yet. System restore to a day prior to the event didn't help. No function keys disable the touchpad, and the touchpad light is white, not red (meaning it's "on"). I'm still under warranty, but if I can fix this without having to wait for it to ship back and forth, that'd be much more preferable.

Any advice at all would be much appreciated! Thanks!

I turned on my 6 months old Acer Aspire One as usual and realised that something was wrong with my mouse. The left button simply doesn't work. Neither does tapping the touchpad. Nothing happens no matter how many times I push or tap. I can move the cursor around just fine and the right mousebutton still works. I can also plug in a USB mouse and use that instead.
I have checked the mouse properties. Under the tab "Hardware" the mouse is listed "Synaptics PS/2 Port TouchPad", and the unit status says it works correctly. I also checked the preferences, and both tapping and buttons are activated and set to normal.
I have tried restarting, removing the battery and Fn-F7 without any luck.
I have also tried switching preferences to left-handed - that gave a funny result: Both the right button and tapping the touchpad functioned like a right-click except now they could also for instance close a window and open the start-menu. The left-button still didn't have any function what so ever.
Hope someone can help me.

Hi there. I've recently started having touchpad problems with my beloved HP EliteBook Folio 9470m.  The issue:The Synaptics TouchPad and its 2 buttons (located just below the touchpad) do not work at all. However, the TouchStyk and its 2 buttons (located at the top of the touchpad) do work perfectly fine. How it started:I factory reset the ultrabook using the Windows 10 menu and when it started back up, everything was cleaned, but the touchpad and its 2 buttons (located below the touchpad) didn't work anymore. External mice do work when plugged. Common solutions that didn't work for me:-The orange light at the top-left of the touchpad is not lit up-Reinstalling the official drivers for Windows 10 (http://h20564.www2.hp.com/hpsc/swd/public/detail?sp4ts.oid=5271102&swItemId=ob_166960_1&swEnvOid=419...)-Installing different versions of drivers and even some for other brands of laptops-Resetting Windows 10 many times-Running driver scanning programs (DriversCloud, DriverScanner) Further notes:No matters which driver I install, the touchpad is always missing in the "Mouse properties" window. The last tab of the window should (if I am not mistaken) have both the Synaptics TouchStyk and TouchPad listed, but only the TouchStyk shows up. It appears as if the driver updated and might have corrupted something, or maybe it's overlapping with the old one and it didn't properly overwrite it (I'm running out of ideas...).

My first post! Hopefully NOT one of many.

I recently got a secondhand HP NX9105 laptop. I reformatted the hard drive and installed Windows XP (SP3).

All worked fine, except the touchpad isn’t working.

I could not see a driver for it so I went onto HP support website and downloaded the Synaptics driver (sp35444). The install got interrupted with the message "This Synaptics pointing device installation package does not support one or more of your pointing devices and will not be installed…".

I then tried the Alps driver (sp25796) and that installed (is visible in the Add/Remove Programs), but the touchpad still didn't work and it doesn't appear in either the Device Manager or in Control Panel->Mouse->Hardware tab.

Next I tried to install another version of the Synaptics driver (sp27681). This one installed so I then rebooted the laptop.

The touchpad still doesn't work, but now I have the Synaptics Device Settings tab in my Mouse settings. The problem is that all the buttons are grayed out and no devices are listed.

Is it possible that this is a hardware fault or is there anything else I need to download?

I'm really stuck now, please help...

all of the other devices in my pc allow me to select this option. i can plug in my usb mouse and it works just fine. but it's not very useful while traveling wich i do several times a week usually.

any help would be great. i have just spent about two hours on chat with hp/compaq doing all of the stuff they tell me to do, even though i did most of it before i called them.

the touchpad does not work in safe mode, it does not work in selective startup mode using msconfig.

I'm hoping to get some guidance to resolve and issue I've been having with a laptop I am trying to refurbish. It's a HP Pavillon TX1000 I got from a friend. I put in a new Western Digital scorpio Blue HD and installed Vista Home.
Everything seemed fine but after installing drivers from the HP site and antivirus and malwarebytes, the touchpad stopped working. It had been fine beforehand. I had to plug in a USB mouse which works fine.
So far I've tried these things:
In control panel looking at the mouse settings the Synaptics Touchpad is greyed out and I can't enable or disable it. I can only remove the usb keyboard driver.
I system restored but it hasn't helped.
I download the Synaptics Touchpad driver again and reinstalled it, but it didn't make any difference.
There is a button above the touchpad which is supposed to enable and disable the pad but pressing it makes no difference, the blue light shows it's enabled but it's not.
I am trying a windows reinstall but even during that I am having to use the usb mouse.
Any ideas what I can try next???
The laptop specs are: The laptop specs are: AMD Turion 64 x2 Mobile Technology TL-58 1.90 GHZ
1GB DDR2 RAM
HDD: Western Digital Scorpio Blue 120GB. 5400RPM.
Windows Vista Home Premium 32 bit.
Thanks,

My touchpad on ideapad Y700 15-ISK just stopped working. I did a little research in drivers and i found, that there is no driver for touchpad installed. I tried to download new drivers from lenovo site and I used an older driver from C:\Drivers\Touchpad, there is InstNT.exe, which made a driver shows up in device manager, but prompt me to restart the laptop. When I did, the driver got lost again and I had to make the InstNT.exe "instalation" again. Then I tried to update it with a setup.exe in the same synaptics folder and after it, the driver got itself a name for synaptics. So I said to myself, ok after restart now, it will be fine. But it wasn't. Again, the driver is gone.I'm attaching a screenshot for you to see driver being installed, but after restart, it vanished and isn't even showing in unrecognized drivers.In addition, my windows defender warned me about some threats, but I guess it got rid of them, because there were none to be found by me. Just wanted to say it, maybe it could affect my problem.

i have a compaq 1720us with a synaptic touchpad. it has worked great until tonight. something has got changed somehow, somewhere. i have uninstalled and reinstalled the latest drivers, i am using windows xp pro.

the one thing i have noticed is this... if i go into the control panel/system/hardware/device manager/mice or other pointing devices/synaptic touchpad in the general tab where you can normally select "enable" or "disable" this device, it is grayed out, with nothing in the box and i cannot select it at all.

all of the other devices in my pc allow me to select this option. i can plug in my usb mouse and it works just fine. but it's not very useful while traveling wich i do several times a week usually.

any help would be great. i have just spent about two hours on chat with hp/compaq doing all of the stuff they tell me to do, even though i did most of it before i called them.

the touchpad does not work in safe mode, it does not work in selective startup mode using msconfig.

i give up!!! HELP!!!

thanks, jimmy
 

A:Touchpad Stopped Working

i downloaded the latest drivers and then deleted from devce manager and let windows find the hardware again and re-installed.
this was after a few days of problems - one of which was that it would only work when i put an external mouse on the PC.

My HP Pavilion x360 just forced an update a couple days ago and ever since then I can't move my cursor. It shows up on the screen when I first start up my laptop but disappears when I'm forced to use my touchscreen because the cursor doesn't move. This happened when I first got my laptop back in december too but the problem eventually went away on it's own. However, it only took two days, I haven't been able to use the touchpad in about a week. I love the touch screen on my laptop but I would like to be able to use my touchpad too... Someone help me out please!

Hello, fellow HP-ers! Hoping someone's expertise can assist me. I decided to clean out my fan by opening up my laptop keyboard. Unfortunately, I must've snagged a power strip or something because suddenly, the mouse stopped working. Does anyone know which power strip is for the mouse? Or if there's something to resecure in there? I've provided a photo for reference. Thanks in advance for the help!  - Mr. Horrible DIY-er

I have a Dell Mini computer with Win 7 Starter.  It's a great little machine but all of a sudden the touchpad stopped working.  The computer was on and when I came back to it the touchpad would not respond. 
 
* I rebooted but that did not resolve my issue. 
 
* I did a hard reboot, unplugging and removing the battery while it was running and restarting but that did not affect my issue.
 
* I tried that Fn + F9 and Fn + F7 but that had no effect.
 
* I scanned with AVG but no virus was found.
 
* I scanned with Malwarebytes but no virus was found.
 
* I ran sfc /scannow but no missing or corrupt system files were found.
 
* I am using a usb mouse.  I located the usb mouse in device manager but the touchpad was not there.  I found the touchpad by clicking "show hidden devices".  The touchpad has a yellow error notice on it.
 
* Windows could not find a better driver.
 
* I uninstalled the touchpad and rebooted and windows reinstalled it but it is still hidden in device manager, still has the same error notice and does not respond.
 
Please help!!!!!!
 
Thanks. 

A:Touchpad stopped working. Any help appreciated.

Does Dell have a separate driver listed at its support site...for the touchpad?
 
If so, did you download such and install it?
 
Do you have your Drivers CD for that system?
