HP 2530p EliteBook - touchpad stopped working. Scrolling works except touch scrolling on right side of pad) and right button, but that's all. Wireless mouse works fine.


To access Mouse Properties, select Start - Control Panel - Hardware and Sound -Mouse.

Use Mouse Properties in Windows to customize settings for pointing devices, such as button configuration, click speed, and pointer options.

De-activate the touch pad on Thinkpad T61 model 6465. I have tried the control panel and it only provides for the mouse.


When you open mouse properties in control panel you should have tab Ultra Nav (look on the picture), click on it and unmark box Enable Touch Pad.

Hi, dry it using hair blower to make sure the moist go. To fix your mouse left button, try to unscrew the mouse casing and see to it that by clicking it really contacting with the switch button. Wear and tear also damage the solder of the switch button. it will be fixed by re-soldering the mouse switch if loosen.

I am using T400 with XP Pro. while typing Touch pad is so sensitive that it jumps the cursor from writing one line to other. End up that you need to type all the items again and again. is there any way...


Hi,

Try this first

To do this, open Mouse Properties within the Control Panel, where on the Ultra Nav-Tab you find a button for touchpad settings. Click on this button and another window will open which has a tab for adjusting the sensitivity of the touchpad. Moving the slider to the left (towards "higher" ) greatly improved my experience with the touchpad.

For me, setting it to the second highest "line" (i.e. second line from the left) works best, but you may be able to set it even higher as I have not yet encountered any negative effects when doing so.

I would be glad if some of you could try to verify my findings, I am very much looking forward to your experiences.

Step 2
Click on the link below and follow the instructions
Touchpad Sensitivity

Also try this step below if above steps does not solve

  • Right-click on 'My Computer' and then select 'Properties' in the context menu. This opens 'System Properties' dialog box.
  • Click on the 'Hardware' tab and then on the 'Device Manager'. Here you will ?nd an entry titled 'Mice and other pointing devices' in the 'Device Manager' window. When you double-click on this entry, it shows the touchpad as a PS/2 Compatible mouse.
  • Right-click on this entry to go to the properties of the touchpad, select 'Advanced Settings', and then click on 'Sample Rate'. You can reduce the degree of sensitivity here.
  • Follow this tip and you can solve the 'jumping cursor' problem easily.
Thank you for contacting FixYa

My eeepc right click pad button isnt working. The left button is working fine & the right was too, up until about 10 minutes ago.


I am not sure how old you eeepc is, but the touch pads and it's buttons are a common issue. Try to buy a wireless mouse. it is much faster and easier and cheaper to fix. But if it is under warenty have it fixed. it just depends on your needs. A mouse will run you $20-$40 and the touch pad will cost you more $ or a month or so to have it fixed.

Touch pad working fine but left clicker doesnt


Usually the green means that the button is pressed. Check the touch-pad buttons for dust or dirt. If they're clean, then probably need to be repaired.
