SOURCE: how to set up mouse pad so it works with touch

Check in the control panel under mouse. There should be a setting to enable tapping. If there is a touch pad icon on the bottom right of the screen you can also right click on that and select options.

SOURCE: mouse/keyboard randomly stops responding

Try another keyboard and mouse then repost your findings. If it still does not work the ports on your system may be failing and you can try a usb keyboard and mouse

Toshiba touchpad doesnt respond after 2 minutes


This issue could be a few things. 1. Make sure your driver for the mouse and keyboard are updated. 2. The mouse pad may be going bad. 3. There may be an issue with the motherboard. I would recommend checking your driver first. Then replace the mouse pad. You can also pick up a wireless mouse and plug the usb that comes with it into a usb port if you are not comfortable tearing apart your laptop.

Mouse doesn't work. touchpad works fine. lenovo G470


LOL, go into the mouse and touch pad properties and make sure you don't have the mouse disabled or blocked.

Does the point work from the touchpad when you have the usb mouse plugged in? If not you have the mouse pointer disabled. There might be a button at the top of the touch pad in the middle that you press to toggle the mouse pointer. There could also be a set of keystrokes you hit to toggle the mouse. For example I just worked on one last week where you had to Press and Hold the Alt key then hit the F6 key. Function Key F6 had the icon of a finger inside a square which represented the touchpad.

Click Start/Control Panel and look at the mouse and touchpad properties. There may be settings where you can disable one if the other is present.

When I move my finger along the Touchpad it does not do what it's supposed. The pointer either doesn't move or responds in a delayed fashion. I have a dell studio 1735 laptop. Thanks.


Try updating first the touchpad drivers from the support website www.support.dell.com . If updating wont fix the problem try adjusting the mouse sensitivity to your preferred settings on control panel. Hope this helps
