Question about Logitech Marble Mouse Trackball

1 Answer

Logitech Marble Mouse driver/setpoint messed up my synaptics touchpad on my laptop...can't fix this!

Hey, I installed the driver for a new USB Logitech Marble Mouse, the software is called SetPoint, and it has messed up my synaptics touchpad...

Before installing it, the laptop recognized the trackball, but I couldn't program the buttons, so I installed the Logitech SetPoint software to be able to use this functionality of the trackball...bad move...

After installing the Logitech software, my Synaptics Touchpad started to take on the pointer speed of the trackball, which made using the touchpad useless as it would take me four strokes to get the mouse across the screen. I'd have to reset the pointer speed for the Touchpad everytime I started Windows XP.

I unistalled the Logictech software, and thing...I reinstalled the Synaptics driver and software from the Acer website for my particular laptop (TravelMate 8100), and this was no help...now, when I start Windows, I still have to reset the pointer speed, but only this time it's affects both devices...

Any advice? Thanks!

Hi, Please uninstall any logitech software version present on your OS (if available) - Then please proceed to clean boot. ( http://logitech-en-amr.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/logitech_en_amr.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=228 ) -> Unplug all the USB devices connected to the computer ( Less keyboard + mouse ) please use corded kbd+mouse if
possible rather than a cordless device. -> Go to device manager -> Delete all the USB HOST CONTROLLER -- All of them -- -> The host controller might reinstall them itslef, let the computer handle the reinstallation -> If the computer does not reinstall the host controllers, trigger the detection using the DM function " Scan for
new hardware " ( The computer with magnifier icon ) -> Once reinstalled, clean boot -> Reinstall the software if available and/or plug the hardware when needed. -> Should work.
This TB delete the usb ports " memory " means if a device as been previously flagged with error, it will redetect
the device without the flag, unless there is some serious issue with the hardware/OS
If after this the issue persist, then I suggest you to call Logitech support to issue a replacement, hardware
failures are covered by warranty terms

Touchpad not active


Press the "Fn" and "F9" keys simultaneously.
Test your touchpad. If it works, it was simply disabled. Press the same key combination any time you want to toggle your touchpad on or off.
Plug an external mouse into a USB port on your laptopicon1.png if the key combination didn't work. Follow onscreen prompts to install the mouse driver--if necessary. You can also move the cursor using the "Tab" key and the arrow keys, as well as click by pressing "Enter" until the mouse is operational.
Click the link in the Resources section if you are using a Toshibaicon1.png Satellite with Windows Vista. Follow the onscreen prompts to download and re-install the driver.
Open a web browser and navigate to Synaptics.com if you have a different Toshiba model or operating system. Synaptics brand touchpads are used in all Toshiba laptops, and this site provides a generic driver.Hover your mouse over "Support" on the top menu, then select "Drivers" from the drop-down menu.
Select your operating system from the list provided and download the generic driver
Follow the onscreen prompts to install your new driver, and then test the touchpad again. If it still does not work, take your laptop to a licensed repair technician.

Touchpad will not work


Hello, seems like a problem with the touchpad, first disable and enable the touchpad with the button which is located at the top of the touchpad, the corresponding LED should change from blue to orange and vice versa. If this doesn't solve the issue, reinstall the driver for the touchpad, you can find this by searching for 'recovery manager' in the start bar. Next step is to select 'advance options' and choose reïnstall hardware driver, there should be an option called 'Synaptics touchpad driver' select and install. kr Gijs

SetPoint messed up my Synaptics touchpad.


Go to Start > Run > type "msconfig" (without quotes) > OK > tab Startup, find entry C:\WINDOWS\KHALMNPR.EXE and untick it. Click OK and reset your computer. After logging on, open Control Panel and restore your mouse settings like you had it before installing SetPoint.

You can also try this:
In SetPoint you can go to the Mouse Game Settings (the chess piece), from there, click "Enabled" for Game detection, then click "OS Implementation" under Speed and Acceleration.

Hope that helps. Kindly rate the solution if it helped.

Cheers!

Turning Of The Touchpad


Solution:
To disable the Touchpad the Synaptics driver is necessary.
Please follow the steps below to disable the Touchpad:
After installing the Synaptics driver click on "Start -> system control -> mouse"
You´ll find the additional register card "Settings".
Mark the Touchpad and click on "Disable".

Now the USB mouse can be connected and the Touchpad remains deactivated.
Some Amilos don´t have a PS/2 port, therefore only a USB mouse can be used.
