Q: My Lenovo G50 Mouse Touchpad isn't working

Hi, I updated to Windows 10 yesterday. I thought my laptop was working OK after the update, but I've noticed that my mouse touchpad doesn't work at all after the update. I hit the F6 button to turn the touchpad off and on, and it still isn't working. Can you help? Thank you!

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hey everyone, I have had this computer for almost a year now and have never had this problem. The only way I can use my computer is by using a USB mouse. Keyboard still works and everything. But the touchpad to control the mouse is not working at all. I have tried to turn the touchpad off and on by using the Fn button and F6 but it hasn't worked. HELP PLEASE!

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.

The left mouse button on the U31.70 laptop I have ocassionally will stay stuck down after being pressed.  It is very intermittent and sometimes the laptop is fine for a few days, but then every so often it seems to happen a great deal.  t has done it from a few months old and it will soon be out of warranty,  I have updated the touchpad drivers, but this has made no difference. Is this a known fault with this model?

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.

I have an HP Elitebook that connects to a logitech usb mouse when attached to docking station. The touchpad on the keyboard moves the pointer, but the left and right mouse buttons do not work. There are two sets, one below touchpad and one above at the keys and neither work. The stylus buttons work and the usb mouse works, however without touchpad it is difficult to use when not docked. Could usb mouse install interfere with touchpad? Thank you for any help.

You should have softwarte to configure the touchpad, make sure everything is enabled.

Also check device manager and make sure the drivers appear to functioning normal. If everything looks OK try to find a newer version of the drivers for the tocuhpad and update those.

I'm running Win 10. My laptop is a Asus Zenbook UX501VW. I have tried reinstalling multiple drivers, multiple times, to no avail. Oddly, the touch screen still works perfectly fine, and for a while I was able to get gestures working on the touchpad (pretty much just scrolling), but now those don't work again. I have also tried three different mice, none of which worked (Microsoft WirelessMobile Mouse 3500, Kinzu V2, unsure of the model of the third).

This started suddenly about three weeks ago and I've been trying to fix it ever since. Like I said before I've tried reinstalling a bunch of drivers, including the ATK pack and Asus SmartGesture drivers, as well as the Microsoft Wireless drivers, yet nothing seems to work. If anyone has some insight on this issue it would be greatly appreciated, I work with adobe editing programs and the touch screen has been more than frustrating to use on these programs.

If it just happened after somebody messed with it physically, then it's almost absolutely something they did to cause it. Take it back to the person/company and have them correct their error. Or somebody else who won't neglect to refasten everything properly.

I've already installed the latest synaptic driver. The device manager even says that the device is 'working properly' however i can't get the pointer to move using the touchpad.

The 'Fn' functions work:
Fn+F7 to brighten
Fn+F6 to darken.

EXCEPT the touchpad: Fn+F9.

Does anybody have any ideas? =[

That is honestly something I have not experienced.
Did it work before you up installed the touch pad driver?
Have you checked all the setting making sure something funky didn't get clicked, by the ghost of vistas past?

Have you ran windows updates, after installing the drivers?
Have you tried uninstalling the driver then running win updates?

Are you getting tired of my questions?
If yes, Im done

Hi there, Nmparmar          -
 
Thank you for writing in to the Lenovo Forum - happy to have you here today.
 
Can you try to:
Make sure you use the original 65W 20V/3.25A or 90W 20V4.5A AC adapter that came with the unit.
 
Plug the AC adapter in another wall outlet in your house (preferrably another side of the house) - if this works, the original wall outlet that you used before when you got the issue may not be properly grounded.
 
Perform a power drain by:a turning the PC OFF. Remove the battery & AC adapter then hold the power button for 30secs. When done, reinsert the AC adapter and battery then boot into the BIOS by pressing F2. When inside the BIOS, press F9 to reset default settings and press F10 to save and exit.
 
Update the Touchpad Driver below:

My touchpad stopped working after I had installed a usb mouse (and an IR remote).

I searched numerous forums and tried everything out there with no success, including the following:
tried the function key to turn touchpad on/off (the most obvious source of the problem)
tried reinstalling driver for touchpad from the manufacturer web site
removed the usb mouse and rebooted
went to Control Panel/Hardware and Sound/Mouse to enable touchpad - touchpad was no longer even listed
There were no problems showing up in the Device Manager

This all became a bit frustrating because I would have to reconnect the usb mouse to do any maneuvering around the system (since the touchpad was not working) to try something else.

I then tried the following: removed the usb mouse, turned off computer (used ctrl/alt/del, then tabbed to the shut down button), turned computer back on. The touchpad still did not work. Without doing anything else, and with the usb mouse still not connected, I then turned the computer back off, then on a second time - and the touchpad became functional. I plugged the usb mouse back in and both worked again at the same time. In the Control Panel/Hardware and Sound/Mouse - both the touchpad and mouse were now recognized.

Hope this helps out others with the same problem (this seems to be a fairly common problem based on the number of postings around the web)

I spent hours searching here and the interweb looking for possible fixes, so far no luck.

Hi suneel_zee.
Welcome to the Community,
Have you tried different power outlets? Does this happen in different locations(even outside you house/work)?
I would suggest you to release flea power.To release flea power disconnect AC adapter,remove battery,disconnect all external peripherals(USB devices),press and hold power button for 30 seconds.
Reconnect the battery and AC adapter.Check how touchpad responds with AC Adapter connected.
If the issue persists try a different AC adapter(may be borrow from some one who uses same watt Dell AC adapter).
Let me know how it goes.
Thank You
