Question about ASUS Eee PC 1000H Laptop

Open Question

Elantech Smart-pad double tap does not function properly anymore. In Dire need of assistance. Please help.

I tried messing around with my Elantech Smart-pad program on my Eee PC 1000H, just to change the zoom levels. It now refuses to function as it used to, as in when I used to double tap the trackpad while hovering over the top of a window it used to maximize it, I used to double tap a word and it used to highlight it. It no longer does this and instead when I double tap the trackpad all that appears is the right click dropdown menu. So the problem is that the one finger double tap (double click) on the trackpad is set to Right Click, there are no options in the Elantech Smart-pad to change this. Thankyou very much in advance, help and advice is greatly appreciated.

SOURCE: keyboard for my ASUS Eee PC 1000H is not working

Hello, I'm not actually sure if you can do this by yourself, or you might just have to get a technician to fix it for you.
What I would suggest that you should do is to get a replacement keyboard for the laptop, you can even buy it from an electronics store by yourself and get a technician to fix it for you (If you cant do it by yourself), this way it would be cheaper.
This is because it is not always advisable to try and repair a laptop keyboard, because one way or the other, it would still develpo problem again. So its better you change it outright and put the inconvenience behind you.
Hope this helps.

You'll need to us the Fn key functions.

Check out your keyboard, there should be a Fn key, probably on the bottom row. Also, probably in the number row, there's a set of dual function keys, one will have a picture of a screen.

Press the Fn key and the screen function key at the same time, should switch between external and internal screen.

SOURCE: Left and right mouse click not working

Left click the start of what you want to copy. Hold down the shift key (the key below Caps Lock) and press the arrow which points to the right. This will highlight text for copying. If you go too far you can use the left arrow to go back while holding down the shift key.

Hp laptop synaptics touchpad light comes on and shuts off pointer

Had this problem before, very annoying! On mine the idea was double tap to disable the track pad and then double tap again to activate it... In reality tapping rapidly in the area around the LED until the LED shut off seemed to work.

In short; double tap the LED to reactivate the track pad. If that doesn't work tap several times in quick succession until the LED turns off.

Good luck!

Hi, I'm using K40In. I can not use the touch-pad anymore. since I realized that, I've tried plenty ways to install the ELANTECH software.... but can not. plz reply me ASAP.

There should be a function key to enable/disable the touch-pad (Fn and one of the light blue keys usually "F" keys) try to look through the keys and see if you have the pad turnned off, if it was a windows update theat stopped it from working then you should be able to roll it back to a working order from a system restore point. Go under the start menu select accessories, system tools, system restore then select the restore point at which you remember the touch-pad still worked.

The thing is that you need to start up the program. Figured that out myself a few moments ago. Go to; C:\Program Files\Elantech\ETDctrl.exe Try googling about how to add it as a startup program as I'm not sure about how to do that. Hope this helps.

Take the computer back to Best Buy, and either get them to demonstrate the touchpad to you, or to repair/replace the computer, if it is defective.

Touchpad has no tap, left key not working.

Hi there,
I had this issue and resolved it by doing the following:
-Open the start menu by using the windows button
-Use the arrow keys to highlight run and press enter
-Type 'control panel' and press enter, find the mouse properties and enter
-From the buttons tab in mouse properties, go to double click speed and change to slow and confirm the changes
-At this point it probably still wont work, so do the above again but change the double click settings to fast and confirm.
-Restart your PC and this should resolve the matter. you can alter the double click speed again if you wish :)

Hope this helps,

Dell latitude c610 touch pad left button problem

Will your laptop work properly with an external mouse? If so, check your touchpad settings in "Control Panel" by selecting "Mouse". Here you can reassign your Buttons. Try setting your Right Button function to "Double Click". If the "Double Click" function works on your Right Button then chances are you have a problem with your Touchpad Assembly which means it will have to be replaced. Dell refers to it as a "Palmrest" which they will replace if still under warranty.
