Touchpad and mouse buttons not working

Q: Touchpad and mouse buttons not working

After having to re-install Windows 7 on my laptop I've found that the trackpad and associated mouse buttons are no longer working. The keyboard works fine.The touch screen works fine.When I inserted an external mouse, it automatically installed the driver and worked without issue.I installed the Synaptics TouchPad Driverbut that didn't make any difference. I also tried removing the battery, holding the power button for 30 seconds, re-instering the power cable (but not the battery) and booting up the latop. It was working fine before the re-install so I can ssume i's not a hardware fault and if the keyboard works the interface cable is also working... Just wondering if anyone has had the same issue and can suggest anything?

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.)

If anyone has acces to the connections/schematics for the M4600 touchpad/button assembly, I'd love to see them! For some reason both the right buttons have stopped working. Tried to disconnect/reconnect  the 14 pin "touchpad cable from the mainboard, but unfortunately this did not do the trick. Need to look a bit deeper - so would love to see the schematics or at least the pinout of the connector(s)... (It's a button - how hard can it be to fix... ;-)
Thanks and best regards,
 Anders

I have a Inspiron 1500, model 3558, with a touchpad oddity. Only about the leftmost ½" of the mouse button acts as a left mouse click. The rest of the button acts as a right click. Since I left-click probably 100 times as often as I right-click, this is very inconvenient. Dell Tech Support was completely useless when I called in. Does anyone know how to adjust this setting, if it is adjustable?

A:Touchpad mouse buttons

You could try reloading the driver for the 3558 touchpad here and then try checking the settings using touchpad properties, but I am not aware of any settings that could change this.On your system do you currently have warranty? It might be that the palmrest needs to be replaced.Best regards,Brad

I have a Toshiba Satellite A105 running XP with a few problems. Sometimes there is no display when Windows loads. It is just a blank screen. The same problem occurs booting into safe mode. Sometimes there is a display and sometimes not. It is the same using an external monitor. I can go into setup without any problems so the problem is when Windows loads.

Another problem - the mouse buttons do not work when I am able to see the display. I can move the cursor but I cannot click on anything. I also cannot use Ctrl Esc to access the Start menu. I cannot open any icons or right click to get the properties box. It is the same with an external mouse.

This computer has a virus, Spyware Guard 2008. When I was first given the computer to clean I was able to use the mouse buttons and could see the display. I was not able to run any executables when I tried to install some spyware and antivirus programs. I don't know if the virus was able to prevent loading those programs.

Someone else closed some processes in Task Manager. The problems with the display and mouse buttons may have started after that. Could there be something that I need to enable?

I currently have the laptop booted into safe mode and can see the display (intermittent problem). The mouse buttons do not work. I can move the cursor but cannot click. When I hover over the Start button I get an hourglass. I cannot open Task Manager.

I don't think this is a hardware problem.

Are there any suggestions? Thanks ... Read more

I should add that I might take the harddrive out and connect it to another computer and access it that way. I should be able to run antivirus software on the laptop drive.

Hi there, first off, I'd like to say that I am using a Dell XPS l502x. Yesterday I was cleaning my keyboard and palmrest, and i think some liquid got inside the mouse buttons and the power button, because they malfunction now. The mouse buttons do not work, and the power button only works when I press it sometimes. When I do press the mouse buttons, sometimes the laptop will go to sleep or on standby. I'm thinking of buying a replacement for the palmrest because it contains both the power button and touchpad, as well as the mouse buttons, but I need confirmation so that I don't end up wasting money if it doesn't work. Is there anything I can do?

This is my first time posting here, I appreciate any help. Thanks .

A:RE: touchpad buttons not working.

Hi MRIGANKPAWAGI,
What is the exact system model? Are both the left and right buttons not functional? Are these buttons mechanically functional or are they stuck? What is the current OS installed on the system? Does the touchpad register a click?
Restart the system and press f12 key on startup - choose diagnostics. Let it run the diags and if you encounter any errors - make a note of the complete error and report the same to us. These are onboard diagnostics and they might possible pick some error if the hardware is not functional. 
If there is no warranty, then you could contact our team to get a quote for a paid service call - http://dell.to/1vnT6CQ
Also, please click my DELL-username and write me a private conversation with the service tag and your contact details(Name and Email) for case records.

Hi,

I have a Toshiba Satellite A200-27Z. It is a fairly old laptop running Vista but there are no plans to get rid of it yet!

A couple of weeks ago the touchpad and mouse buttons stopped working. There was no lead up to this, just suddenly stopped. This lead to a second issue with my wireless connection which I eventually had to solve by re-installing Windows (I sought help in this thread http://forums.techguy.org/windows-vista/1125652-wireless-password-not-accepted.html#post8906770).

The fresh install of Windows fixed my wireless issues but strangely the touch pad and buttons still don't work at all. Given that I just installed Windows with all the drivers does that mean this is a hardware fault? And is there a way to fix it or do I now have to rely on the USB mouse?

Thank you in advance for any help,

John
 

A:Touchpad and buttons not working

Since you re-installed Windows with fresh install of drivers for the touchpad, chances are good that it is a hardware failure.

Yesterday the left and right buttons on my touchpad started to mess up. Clicking the left button sometimes wouldn't do anything and sometimes it would bring up the right-click menu. I would have to right-click something first before I could do anything to it with the left click nearly all the time. The right button sometimes won't bring up the menu and sometimes it will but only for a second. There are also random times where the menu will pop up when I just barely touch the right button.

I've already checked the mouse options and they're all set correctly and also reinstalled the correct driver from Vaio's website and nothing works.

The only thing that's happened when the buttons started messing up was that my computer was badgering me about restarting to complete a few updates. I also watched a movie too though that was about a day or two before, so it might either be something from the update that my computer can't handle anymore or a virus, least that's what I think but I don't know anything so I'm asking you guys.

I am forced to use the laptop with an external mouse. The trackpad and touchpoint themselves both work just can't click anything, I have tried uninstalling drivers and re-installing but that hasn't helped, have also run Hirens boot cd - Mini XP mode and the buttons don't work there either. Sounds like a hardware issue to me but would like a second opinion before I start pulling it apart! Many thanks Chris

Hi whitehouse87,
  Welcome to Lenovo Community! And happy to have you again.
 
As I understand that you are facing issue with Touchpad & Trackpoint buttons are not working in T410.
You have tried almost everything & I don't think so its related to software or drivers. You can check without drivers once whether clicks are working or not. Else its a hardware issue for sure
 
I hope the above information helped you.
Please feel free to post in Lenovo Community Forums if you have any further queries!

Hi, whilst on my laptop today for no apparent reason my touchpad decided to stop working properly, it will still move the mouse around the screen, however does nothing when I double tap anything. The left click button has also ceased to work at all, click and nothing the right hand button is working fine.

I have reinstalled the drivers and I am currently using a mouse via the USB port which is working fine. I have also checked the options to make sure that the left click hasn't been assigned to another button or something odd like that. I'm afraid I really am at a bit of a loss as to what could be wrong.

If anyone could please point me in the right direction I'd really appreciate it!! Thanks guys

A:Satellite C50-B-189 touchpad and buttons stopped working

Hi, this is due to the pad driver (which is bugged), just kill the process using CTRL+SHIFT+ESC AND THE TAB plus DOWN ARROW to navigate to the target process. I have to do this each starts.

From tomsguide (november 2014):





These fixes don't help, all that happens is, after some time, the touchpad fails again. While Toshiba works on this, I have figured out a quick, effective workaround. This is for my new Windows 8 Toshiba.
Press CTRL ALT SHIFT to get your processes to come up. Find the Touchpad "enhancer" process. End the process. Your touchpad will work fine until next restart at which point just repeat this step.
If you are struggling to end the process without being able to use your touchpad, I found a curious thing out. If you hold a mouse click down, you can move the mouse arrow with the touchpad just fine. Its a bit... inconvenient...but all you need to do this for is to end that process and after that you can use the touchpad normally.

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.

W530 laptop with latest recommended Synaptics driver (19.0.17.115), Windows 10. I occasionally play games on my laptop using the touchpad and mouse buttons. Thanks to these forums, I learned that I needed to disable PalmCheck in order to be able to use the touchpad at the same time as the keyboard. Everything works great for my (default admin) account. I set up an account for my son to use so he could play Minecraft with his brother. Though I have more than quadruple-checked the Ultranav settings from my son's account, the mouse buttons refuse to operate when a key is pressed. Interestingly, the touchpad itself DOES respond, it's just the mouse buttons (both R & L) that insist on waiting until all keys have been released. So in summary:* Works fine on my original > 4-year-old account that I migrated from W8 years ago;* Does not work on a separate account I created a couple of months ago. Any idea where to begin with this one? This smells like a funky setting in the registry for my son's account.

A little over a week ago I spilled some water on my Elitebook 840 G2.  I previously had an Elitebook 8470p and spilled water on it several times with no problems at all.  Ever since the spill, my C, D, P, 0 (zero), and ] keys no longer function (kinda sounds like the half-wit brother of c3p0). Also, all 4 mouse buttons don't work (left/right click for both the touchpad and the little pencil eraser mouse on the keyboard).  I can click by tapping the touchpad, and I can right click by tapping touchpad with two fingers.  I'm using a USB keyboard for typing. I have taken this thing apart, including removing the keyboard and the touchpad itself.  Checked it, reconnected it, no difference. My question(s): Suggested parts to fix this would be keyboard and touchpad?Is there a common denominator that would cause those particular keys to go out, along with the mouse buttons (ie, a particular circuit that is damaged)Is there anyway that replacing the keyboard will fix the touchpad? (like do the touchpad buttons have a circuit through the keyboard)?Although I removed the touchpad I never did attempt to get into the touchpad housing or remove the buttons - to clean inside it.  Would that be suggested?  If so, how can I remove the buttons and do that?Aren't these Elitebooks supposed to have spill resistant keyboards?  Thank you!

I have a Steelseries Ikari Opitcal Gaming mouse. It consists of left, right, 2 more buttons near the thumb area, the scroll wheel (which can be clicked, middle mouse button) and another button just behind the scroll wheel which changes the sensitivity between low and high for the mouse itself.

I have installed the latest Ikari drivers, but let me detail when the problem arose and what I've done as well as what I'd like the final result to be like:

The problem first came up while playing a game, Magicka. As something worth mentioning, comodo antivirus announced that the game wanted to inject input8.dll file or something of the sort. I naturally allowed this, expecting no problems would happen. This may be a key point to the problem, although I can't be too sure.

While playing the game, the middle mouse button stopped working, and that's a fairly core aspect of the game, and for some reason the keybinds can't be changed, not sure why, but oh well - I'm stuck without a middle mouse button and unable to do much about it...

The sensitivity changer is out of the picture as well, sadly. I can't switch my sensitivity back to high, it's stuck by default on low.

Another thing I noticed while this problem was going on was that when i started up i could move hte mouse but click nothing. Even though I'd move the mouse over the taskbar icons in Win7, the icons wouldn't highlight, and the mouse, aside from moving the pointer was virtually useless. I had to open Task Manager to ...

I just built a PC for the first time this past weekend. Everything fired up and worked GREAT except for one thing. My Wireless Logitech MX3000 keyboard hot keys and the side buttons on my mouse no longer work.
I installed the Set Point software. I reset all the hotkeys and the side mouse buttons. But to no avail.

Any helpful hints would be appreciated. Here is the system I built:

Antec Nine Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

NEC 18X DVD±R DVD Burner With 12X DVD-RAM Write Black E-IDE / ATAPI Model 7170A-0B

G.SKILL 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model F2-6400PHU2-2GBHZ

PS: In case it matters. The Mouse and Keyboard hotkeys did work on my prior PC.

The first thing I'd try is uninstall & reinstall the drivers. Instead of using the disk to reinstall from, download the latest ones from the Logitech site.

Hello Lenovo Community, I have a Lenovo T440s but the three mouse buttons above the clickpad do not work. However if I uninstall the synaptics driver, the mouse buttons work but then click won't, kinda. Only tap to click works, no two-finger scrolling.  If I install the synpatics driver the mouse buttons do not work and I get full multi geasture support for the clickpad.  Lenovo Technical supports wants me to ship the PC.  Does anyone else have a different solution. Even in the mousepad settings, the mouse buttons do not show. Thank you

Hi, The lower mouse buttons on my laptop work fine. The upper ones stopped working recently. When i first got the laptop, they worked fine. Then a few months ago, I updated drivers through Lenovo Vantage, and they stopped working. I don't rememeber what I did to resolve the issue. I may have uninstalled the drivers and used some default Microsoft ones, but they did start working again. But now I ran Vantage again a few days ago, and they are again not responding. I would like them to work with these latest drivers supplied through Vantage. Any ideas guys?

Hi, i returned a Dell Studio 16 for another Dell Studio 16 with some lighter configurations. One thing I didn't expect to go missing was the ability to "middle click" and open firefox links in new tabs by pressing both mouse buttons simultaneously.

When i went to Dell's website to update the driver, i was informed via a pop-up that the driver i already have was newer than the one i was trying to update with. so i didnt "update" the driver. The device says "Synaptics TouchPad V7.2 on PS/2 Port" and the Driver Version is 14.0.3.0. I am running Win7 64bit. Thanks.
 

A:Solved: Middle-Click via pressing both mouse buttons not working

i "updated' to the older driver and it worked.

I recently had the top cover replaced because of damage done to it during a tuneup and cleaning. Now my right mouse key, on the touchpad does not respond. Using a wired mouse everything is normal. Is there a setting in Windows to correct this, or is it a ribbon not properly connected or similar problem? Thanks for any and all help. Glen

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.
