Q: Elan Touchpad tapping function not working on Aspi...

The tapping function on my Aspire E5-573 with Windows 10 is not working properly. The single tap function does not work, necessating a click instead for every action. This is ergonomically tedious. Also, the clicking function does not work in the bottom left-hand corner - you have to click about almost halfway up on the touchpad to effect a click.The Elan I2C touchpad driver is 13.6.3.1 dated 5/6/2015. On the forum I have only come across solutions to the Synaptics touchpad.

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 I have a Samsung RV510 laptop and I have a problem with the elan touchpad. It can scroll up and down but I when I click or tap on anything it doesn't do anything. I am using a USB plug in mouse but I am working on an university assignment and I need the USB portal to save my work on an USB key. Before Christmas I had the same problem and I went into the tech support in uni and he said that I had set the left click button to right click function or something like that and he went into control panel and mouse to resolve the problem. He fixed it by doing something in Mouse under Control Panel but I just can't remember what and by the way I have the setting where the elan touchpad is disabled when an USB plug in mouse is inserted. I really need help today if you can ! I have tried to adjust the settings of the touchpad in Mouse in Control Panel but even switching the buttons does not do anything to solve the problem. Sometimes when I start the laptop the touchpad works fine but an indication that is going wrong is when I am scrolling the screen with the touchpad the pop up that appears on screen when one right click appears by itself and keeps appearing whenever on the screen I move the touchpad mouse. After that the tap to click as well as left and right click buttons fail to work at all and I do not know if this is a software problem or is it a hardware problem as I said I encountered this problem already and now it's returned. Thanks

Hi

My keyboard and touchpad stopped working out of nowhere (i think it was after windows updated???) and i can't seem to be able to fix it, i tried to reinstall the touchpad drivers and nothing changed, also i couldn't find the keyboard drivers.

is there anything someone can recommend me to do? I'm going insane with this laptop!

(The model is Satellite M50-A-118)

A:Satellite M50-A - ELAN touchpad stopped working

Identical problem here. Satellite M50-A-11Q. Allowed windows update and touchpad and keyboard drivers are disabled.

Using an external mouse to access - currently doing a system restore to before the latest update. This looks like a fault at Microsoft's end.

Will update once I have a definite solution.

UPDATE: Restore has temporarily fixed the problem. Disabling windows update for the time being.

Remember this recent thread?

https://forum.toshiba.eu/showthread....topped-working

Well guess what my mouse and touchpad stopped working again today, this time during a Windows update (rather than after) - and guess what... the "Elan - Other Hardware - ELAN Input Device" was one of the updates, same as last time.

The good news, for me anyway is that the problem was temporary this time. After forcing a reboot by a long press of the power key, mouse and touchpad functionality was restored after the updates finished installing.

EDIT - just to say that my touchpad customisations e.g. reverse direction of scroll, 3 finger press to launch browser etc. have all been lost. No big deal, just a nuisance

A:Satellite M50A - ELAN touchpad stopped working - again!

And as a follow up, having edited the registry to restore the functionality to launch my favourite browser with a 3 finger press (see another thread for reason for why I had to use regedit) I've had intermittent results.

I've now realised that the 3 finger "press" feature seems to have disappeared to be replaced with a 3 finger "touch". It's not documented that I can see, the registry key names have remained the same but pressing doesn't do anything while a lingering 3 finger touch does work.

For the past several months, I have been experiencing an issue with my touchpad on my XPS 9550. I have sent my laptop in 4 times for repairs, and I have even had my laptop replaced with a new one and the same problem remains! I know that I am not imagining this problem because other people have experienced it, but I have not yet seen a fix.
The Problem: Every few days, the touchpad suddenly becomes unresponsive to tapping. Upon tapping, it either tries to drag whatever you have selected, or it highlights text (depending on what you are doing). Multiple finger gestures (e.g. scrolling, changing desktops) still work perfectly fine for some reason, and so does mechanical clicking of the touchpad. The only temporary fix is a full restart, which is very annoying and time-consuming to do on a nearly daily basis.
Interventions:1. Updated BIOS and drivers - no change2. Sent in for Windows re-install - no change3. Sent in for new touchpad and palm rest - no change4. Sent in for new motherboard - no change5. Sent in for system exchange (they gave me a new laptop) - NO CHANGE
Does anybody have any ideas on how to remedy this issue? None of Dell's technicians seem to know the answer. I would be extremely appreciative if anyone has any suggestions, and I'm sure you'd be helping out a bunch of other people as well!

Seeing 76 reads and no reply's must mean no one knows how to fix it...or I'm the only one that doesn't know

I found a solution. The drivers I downloaded from the synaptics sites did not install, because I read somewhere that they had forgotten/neglected to digitally sign the driver (for windows 8.1 at least) Windows will not install a driver that is not digitally signed. That function can, however, be switched off. Here's how
Installed the driver afterwards and everything was as it. I'm running windows 8.1 64 bit. Perhaps someone can say if it works on Win 8 if the problem exists there also.

On my HP laptop, updating its Synaptics touchpad driver fixed that exact problem. Elantech may have a similar update. Check laptop mfg's site first, Elantech's site second.

(Note: it is possible that there is a driver update which addresses the issue but makes no mention of the fix in the description. Be sure to create a Restore Point before applying [any] update!)

Hey there, the touchpad on my 5 months old E580 Thinkpad didn't work after booting my laptop regularly. The laptop was also weirdly slow in reacting to key strokes on the keyboard. The two implemented mouse keys on the touchpad still work to some degree. Actually a click with two fingers on any are of the touchpad equals a right mouse click. Now, I use the trackpoint to navigate.I tried to update the touchpad drivers, which were already the "newest". I deactivated and activated it again and restarted the laptop, none of which has yielded any result so far. Does anybody have an suggestion of how to solve this problem? Best,Moejo

After a routine update to my Lenovo Thinkpad Yoga 15 type 20DQ-001, the scroll function on my touchpad is no longer working (no two finger scroll and no other fancy multitasking functions either). I visited other forums (a few years old) about this issue and they said to go through my control panel, go back a driver, and reinstall the driver. After restarting the computer this works, until I shut the computer down and turn it back on later or the next day to find the scroll function no longer works...again. I have been using this fix multiple times a day for over a week now. I also saw something online aboutclicking a button in the control panel screen for "mouse" that turns on scrolling; this does not exist on my PC's control panel.

Hi Keanutheskunk,
 
Welcome to the Forums
 
As per the query we understood that you facing issue with touchpad in your Lenovo Y50 laptop.
 
As you have mentioned that the mouse properties are graded out, as you have also mentioned that the driver has been reinstalled hence suggest you to reinstall the operating system and check for the issue.
 
Before reinstalling the operating system please take a data backup.
 
Hope this helps. Do post back if the issue persists!                                                   
 
Best regards,

Basic story is that I bought my lenovo laptop about a year ago. I was excited when I received it, however, I quickly realized that the right mouse click button did not work correctly. You have to press it very hard and it regularly fails to work. As far as I can tell from reading around, the synaptics version of the pad had issues that were resolved by a driver update. Has there been any sort of fix for the ELAN version? I've tried both uninstalling and reinstalling the latest drivers available (as far as I can tell) to no benefit. Would really love to get this fixed so that I can use this laptop as intended.

I'm running the most recent driver on my Elan touchpad (v. 10.7.6.2). With this update came automatically activated PalmTracking, which causes a 2-3 second delay on the mouse after every keystroke.

A:Elan Touchpad Disable Palmtracking

That does sound like an annoying feature.

If there is nothing within the settings/properties window you included in your post, I can think of three options:

1) Disabling the trackpad drivers entirely. This options will fix the delay problem, but you will lose all the other useful functions of the trackpad.

2) Rolling back to a previous version of the driver.

3) Editing a registry value to turn off the feature (this may not even exist).

Assuming you'll want to try out option 3, I'll need you to make a System Restore point first.

After you've done this, proceed with the directions below.

I just wanted to pass on to Acer support that I was unable to install the Windows 10 preview build 1030 on my ES1-411-C1WD with the touchpad set in the UEFI to Advanced mode. If I left it on Advanced mode, Windows 10 installation would not have a mouse cursor and at one point just locked up. I had to change the setting to BASIC mode in order to get Windows 10 preview to install. If I change the setting to Advanced mode, Windows 10 loads but without a cursor, so I am left using the touchpad in Basic mode.

I'm sorry that you're having trouble with your teouchpad. For the sake of troubleshooting we would need to do that under Windows 8/8.1 to determine if there is a hardware issue.

Been reading here and using win 10 from the outset. On latest build, updated this morning.

This Elan touchpad driver keeps coming in through windows update and it just screws up my touchpad more than anything. When it loads up I can no longer use right or left click functions on the touchpad. I can find no way to stop the update.

Is there any method for stopping a particular windows update from loading? I keep uninstalling it but it comes back all the time.

I am on an Asus G750J laptop.

Thanks for any help. Hopefully there is a simple fix that just eludes me.

Hello I have recently purchased a Flex 15 with the Elan touchpad. I have noticed that I do not have an option to two finger tap for a right click. The settings for the Elan Touchpad provide me a way to two finger click (where i physically click the touchpad) but not for the 2 finger tap. This seems like a weird oversight since that functionality is so very common now for all laptops. Does anyone else have this issue? is there a way to get this functionality back?

Is it possible to configure a synaptics touch pad settings such as sensitivity, tapping, and type lock settings without the synaptics software?

When I upgraded my laptop to Vista, my touch pad became erratic randomly clicking both left and right buttons as well as being unresponsive and/or jumping to random locations. I discovered that the issue was caused by the synaptics software. When I uninstalled the software part of the driver, the touchpad worked fine, but I can't configure it. I've tried updating to the latest software/driver from the synaptics website as well as Compaq's recommended drivers for my laptop off their website and neither worked. I've also tried on several occasions to deal with Compaq chat tech support but was unable to come up with a solution.

If anyone knows if it can be configured in the registry, or if there is a config file that can be edited, or 3rd party software, please let me know if you have any ideas!

I just got the LG Gram 15 laptop.

The ELAN touchpad delays/lags a bit when my finger first touches the pad. The mouse on the screen "jumps" a bit to compensate the delay. Seems like it is deliberately done to prevent accidental mouse movement upon click.

But it is sooo annoying. I cannot make any precise movements. Can anyone tell me how to disable it?

I have two machines that both have Elan touchpads and both of them have significant issues. One is an Asus Zenbook 303la. The other is a Samsung Ativbook 5. The Zenbook has erratic mouse movements. Sometimes the cursor will jump to another part of the screen. It also will click on stuff that I'm not trying to click on. The Ativbook has another issue. When I select something, there is a delay. I'll remove my finger and it stays selected for a few seconds. It especially has issues with scrolling. I tried configuring every option that I could think of.... I searched for a different driver to install but I didn't find anything on the Elan, Asus, or Samsung website. I tried uninstalling the driver and using the built in Windows driver. The touchpads work much better now but they are missing some features. The Samsung doesn't support double tapping for certain applications. Other than that it's acceptable. Anyone have any issues with these touchpad drivers or know of a work around?

Hi there,

I am having issues with the ELAN driver on my Satellite S50-B-12Q. One of a sudden it started to work weirdly, it can't be used. It moves fast and not responsive to your finger's actions. The only solution I've come up with is to roll back to a previous driver, the windows one, but of course I've lost all the extra movements (scrolling, moving right, left and so on).

I have tried different versions of the ELAN driver but had no different results.

Could please anyone help me out with this?

Thanks

Hi,
I tried disabling my laptop touchpad mouse when I plug in my USB mouse. I selected the disable option under the touchpad properties/preferences. The icon shows the disabled sign but the touchpad mouse is still active. I am thinking of uninstalling and then re-installing the driver. I cannot find the driver online so can someone direct me on where to locate this driver or provide me with some troubleshoot options to remedy this issue.
My PC is a Dell Inspiron 15 5548 model with windows 8.1 64-bit OS.
Please advise. Thank you.

Windows 10 does not regards settings from old mouse settings.
Go to Settings(win10)>Devices>Mouse and touchpad and switch Off => "Leave touchpad on when a mouse is connected"
