Solved: Cannot Turn Off Tapping On Touch Pad

Q: Solved: Cannot Turn Off Tapping On Touch Pad

Ok I have this laptop that belonged to my father and I have a problem. Basically I am wanting to turn off the 'tapping' on the touch pad but I just can't.
I have searched online for an answer but nothing I try will work. There are no settings in the control panel, either in the mouse settings or anywhere else that let you turn the tapping off.
Something I read said to press Fn and F9 but that does nothing.
I do remember turning the tapping off once when my dad had the laptop but I can't do it the same way because I installed a fresh copy of Windows and it wasn't from the recovery CD so the software for the touch pad isn't there.
I have tried searching for the software but it appears that this model of laptop doesn't exist!
It is a Toshiba Equium EA60-173 and the model number is PSA67E-00700C8J but I just can't find anything to do with the laptop on the Toshiba website. I did manage to find and try a program called Toshiba Touch and Launch which let me change some aspects of the touch pad but not the blasted tapping.
So if anyone can think of anything else I can try apart from what I have tried already then I'm all ears.
Thanks in advance.

I thought I found this topic in here earlier, but can't find it now.

The problem I was experiencing with my Toshiba Satellite A215 Laptop was a very annoying window resizing when I tapped in the upper right corner of the touch pad, and a minimizing of the window when I tapped in the lower right corner.

By accident I found the setting that controls this function. Here is how to disable it:

Open Control Panel and click Mouse
Click on Device Settings
Click Settings
Click + (to the left of) tapping
Click Tap Zones
Click Enable Tap Zones box so no check mark appears
Click Apply
Click Apply on the Mouse Properties Dialog Box

Since purchasing my HP Spectre prior to Christmas I have experienced ghost tapping with the touch screen. Either as randomly timed taps in the same location or continuous taps in the same location. Resetting the device stops it from happening but within around 30 minutes to an hour of use the tapping returns and will be in a different location from the previous session. Having this issue from day one is very dissapointing and I wasn't expecting to have such an issue believing HP to provide quality products. Since searching for the issue I can see that others also experience the fault. Seems odd that a premium product can have so many units with faults and a fault that was known about in previous products. I'm not confident that a repair will give me much assurance that the issue won't return so may seek a refund from where I purchased it. A little saddened by that as I was looking forward to owning the new Spectre 360. I haven't experienced HP support before, do others have experience and have others had a good experience with the new Spectre 360? I like the device so would prefer to get it fixed, but I start Uni next week and will struggle to be without a laptop.

I just got a new hard drive for my HP Pavilion Laptop. With the old HD, I just had to go into Control Panel -> Mouse and disable tapping through something called Synaptics. This does not appear at all on my new control panel anywhere under Mouse, nor is there an icon in the lower right like there used to be. It seems like I can make tapping into a science where flicking in different directions does other crap, but I just want tapping off.

Help?

Hi,
I'm using a Synaptics Touchpad on my Acer V3-551 and when I follow the steps to turn off double tapping (go to the device settings in mouse and click settings and find tapping and disable) I can't seem to find the tapping option. The only options are Overview and Buttons. I have updated my driver to make sure it is fully up to date. This computer was once windows 8 but is now windows 7. Is there an option I need to turn off in order to see it? (full model is V3-551-8469)
Thanks!

Hi:

I have a Sony VGN-NW270F. I changed the original OS from Windows 7 Home Premium to Windows 7 Professional 64 bits. I can't seem to find a way to turn off the feature that equates the tapping of the touchpad to pressing the left mouse button.

I think I might be missing some software or drivers that might have been missing when installing the new OS. I think it is probably Alps Pointing Device, but the driver on Sony's website is only for Windows 7 Home Premium.

Sony Tech Support says that only Windows 7 Home Premium is supported and that therefore I can not turn this tapping feature off.

It seems unreal to me that this would be the case! A new computer, with a new OS and I can't control the tapping feature?!

Can anyone suggest a solution? Thanks,
 

A:Solved: Turning off tapping feature in Windows 7 Professional

... but the driver on Sony's website is only for Windows 7 Home Premium.Click to expand...

Presumably because that's the only version they sell with that model. A Windows 7 driver is a Windows 7 driver; Starter, Home Premium, Professional, Ultimate makes no difference.

As I was using my laptop, a Y50-70 Touch, it turned itself off and now I've been unable to turn it back on at all. When I hit the Power Button it lights up for a second or so, as do the white LED indicator lights on the front of the laptop, but nothing else happens, the keyboard backlights doesn't turn on and there are no other sounds from the laptop, no fans, nothing. It does this with the power cord plugged and the battery in and every other configuration possible, nothing. I'v removed the battery and tried to discharge any additional charge left by holding the power button down for extended periods of time, I've also hit it at least 30 times or more. It doesn't do anything when the battery is put back in. I've tried this multiple times. I've checked every connector and they all seem perfectly fine. Im out of warranty so I can't send it in to be fixed. This laptop has been a disaster, the screen constantly flickers and the hinges are both cracked. I'll never buy another Lenovo.

My computer just won't turn on anymore. I tried almost everything on the forums about how to turn it back on. But it still won't turn on. So I took it to a local computer repair shop, they said my mother board is damaged. But they didn't look at the mother board, they just tested out the power cord and see if it gives off the right amount of amps. They said it does. So I'm lost and don't know what to do, this is my first computer and I use it for just about everything. If anyone has a tip or two that would be helpful.

Ladies and Gents,
Brand new here and by the looks of some of the topics, I'm way over my head. This post may be in the wrong part of the forum but, I thought I'd at least start here. I have a HP Laptop that's in the neighborhood of 12-14 months old. It came with Vista Home premium which, worked OK at best. I recently got a chance to pick up Windows 7 Professional for a very reasonable price so, I had a friend install a brand new version of it along with a newer version of Microsoft Office 2010.

Well, here's the problem. The computer has an "on-off" button just above the touch pad. Before the installation of Windows 7 Professional, the button worked just fine in turning the touch pad on and off. Well, now it has absolutely no effect on the touch pad at all. It still changes the colors of the tiny lights, just above the button, from a white, (indicating "on") to orange, (indicating "off") but, zero effect on the operation of the touch pad.

This is quite frustrating because of the cursor movement while typing etc. It throws it all over the place and all of a sudden the page is changed, I'm typing in a different sentence three paragraphs above where I should be typing etc. What a pain. Is there something that changed the effect of the button during the installation of Windows 7?

If so, how could an operation system change, even as big as going from Vista to Windows 7 have an effect on MANUAL BUTTON above the touch pad. In my opinion, that button... Read more

Originally, we thought it was the power source as the power supply box green light was flashing. We have tried 3 different cords and still nothing. Can anyone tell us what is going on? I do remember that before we tried to turn it on about a week prior to that I had shut down the computer, but it had updates so it was doing that but I never paid attention how it shut off, whether expected or unexpectedly.

Machine: Lenovo IdeaPad U530 Touch
 
Symptoms: pushing the power button turns the computer on for approximately 1 second.  Power button lights, backlit keyboard lights, fan starts up, then after one second, everything turns off.  When plugged in, the battery light is lit.
 
What I've already tried:
* The magic code - unplug adapter, disconnect the battery and press the power button 10 times, then hold it for 60 seconds. Then restart as normal.
* Leaving it plugged in for a day.
* Leaving it unplugged for a month.
* Reseat the RAM
* Replace the RAM with known working stick.
* Removing the RAM completely.
* Reseat the hard drive.
* Replace the hard drive with a HD from another Lenovo laptop.
* Removing the HD completely.
* Reseat the display cable where it connects to MB.
* Hold down enter while hitting the power button
* Tilting the laptop 45 while hitting the power button.
*Praying and offering to never look at porn again if it would just boot.
 
None of these had any effect.  Exact same process every time: powers on for one second, then powers off.
 
I've smelled the MB for any signs of fried components.  Nothing.  Everything looks good on the inside.
 
Possibly related: before this, I was having terrible times with the boot process.  System would take forever to boot, then blue screen, saying there was a problem and the system would reboot for me, then it would reboot as normal and everything would be fine.  ... Read more

Hello Jsfrench,Thanks for using the Lenovo forums.Try to see if you have any recovery media, if you are able to install an older OS on the unit, I had something similar happen, but in my case, the unit would not boot after trying to install Win 7 on it, Win 8.1 seemed to have fixed it.
 
Otherwise, by the sound of things you pretty much tried everything, including prayers
 
 If these steps do not work you can call your local Lenovo support line for a potential repair. Below is the link to the phone list where you can find these numbers

I have an envy m6 touchscreen that is giving me problems that i can't solve. It has been great up until recently. i was using my laptop last nite when suddenly it turned off but i didn't think that the battery shoukd have been dead yet. its acting as if the bat is empty and plugging it in just turn on the orange led by the power plug. when i press the power button it flashes for a second but the screen does nothing and it doesn't actually turn on.I'm using my phone to attempt to find a solution atm which is very frustrating. adding to the stress is the fact that i have school work projects and a midterm project on it that I need to finish.Almost forgot to mention it started doing a few other odd things over the last week such as the touchscreen going nuts registering phantom touches endlessly until i close/hibernate/shutdown it.

Hi
I've got a z20t-B-107. Lovely machine, upgraded to win 10, all working fine - I had to download a new Wacom driver to get the 'left-click' to work with the pen.

I'm using it in tablet mode to digitise some data points on a map, and to sketch with the pen. However, when I rest my hand on the screen it 'activates' the touch screen and makes things go crazy. I really need to be able to temporarily switch off the touch digitiser and have only the Wacom digitiser running, and if I can toggle it on/off somehow that would be useful. Otherwise i need to use the pen in a very unnatural position to avoid touching the screen with my hand.

I have a Samsung Galaxy Note which uses the Wacom type digitiser - it doesn't seem to suffer from this, as soon as it detects the pen near the screen it appear to switch off the touch part.

I would be grateful for any help - I've tried search engines but they only seem to give results about touch pads, and that's completely different...

Many thanks in advance

A:Portege Z20t - can I turn touch screen OFF?

Hi,

I use a Z20t too (but with Win8.1) and have the same problem. I have decided to switch off the touch complete. It is not a good solution, but a good working with OneNote is only with switching off the touch functionality possible.
Maybe this is a possible solution for you.
In Win8.1 I switched off the driver in the device manager.

I found the following steps here:
http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/w...d55591d?auth=1

1. Right-click and select "All Apps" at the lower right corner, then select Control Panel
2. Select Hardware and Sound
3. Select Device Manager
4. Select Human Interface Devices
5. From the list, look for the driver for the touch screen. This can be tricky since on my tablet they are all listed as "USB Input Device" and there are 3 of them. I found it by disabling and re-enabling one at a time until the touch screen stopped responding. You can also identify the touch screen by checking the Properties | Details and get the "Hardware Ids" then do a search online to see what the device is. In my case, the touch screen has the ID USB/VID_0EEF&PID_7302.
6. Once you know which is the touch screen, disable the driver and the touch screen should no longer work
Enable this device to make the touch screen work again.

  I know you can move the screen around like a cell phone, fine and dandy.   What seems to happen is somewhere out of the blue (and ocurring more frequently ) if I try to move it via scrolling in any way other than the right side scroll bar the screen goes larger and smaller.  At the same time if I try to type anything in a search box each key acts as a function instead of a letter.    The only solution is to restart and it goes away for a while.    Could this be an unintended key I am striking or is it yet another problem relating to the scroll function of this computer series / win 8 program?   It hasn't done it since I bought it in Dec 2013 but seems to be happening more and more often.    Thanks .

It actually does sound like you're striking a key.
I've had the keyboard go whacky as you describe and always found it easier and faster to reboot it, than to figure out which key it is that I keep hitting.
I imagine that the "guilty" key is what is also affecting the scroll too.

Bought it on December 31, 2015 IIRC. Dropped it, doesn't turn on at all, no power, it's dead, completely and utterly dead.

I can move the pointer, but I can't click anything. If I right click, it's like the left-click button is being held down and I can't click anything on the menu. A USB mouse works.

Thanks in advance, SawronZXZ~

i was watching the panel (tv show which talks about events and news and stuff) two nights ago, and one of the panelist's husband's friend is teaching English in Cambodia. Anyway, they showed an excerpt from the e-mail that her husband showed to her and it goes something like, "I was joking around with the kids that I was a CCF member" (CCF is the opposition party) and then it goes, "This message has been intercepted and monitored, blah blah blah blah blah". Then another panelist said, "oh i was reading the other day about how many phone taps and internet taps (or whatever) that australian's get and its amazing!"

do these sort of things (taps/interceptions) happen often?
