    The non-Synaptics touchpad MSI has introduced is very irritating because of the 'Tap to Click' for which no disabling driver is supplied.

Usually this on/off feature comes with the manufacturer drivers. If (I'm assuming you are using windows) the OS was re-installed, it just uses a generic driver which does not include advanced options. And MSI seem to not provide this driver (I've searched). Maybe there is an option for it on their System Control Manager. You can download it here:

In LINUX, it is a bit more complex, because it is not easy to get a specific driver for the touchpads .

How to disable mouse pad double tap


On all Panasonic Toughbook models, if the Touchpad driver is
properly installed then you can disable the "TAPPING" feature.
Check under device manager. If the driver says PS2 Mouse,
then you need to locate your touchpad driver. Otherwise
locate the advanced setting under MOUSE under the control
panel and find "TAPPING" and un-check to disable feature.
Good Luck!

Cursor hopping backwards


One of the innovative features about laptops is the built-in trackpad in lieu of a standard computer mouse. This device eliminates the need to have a mouse dangling from your PC as you tote it from palce to place. Unfortunately, this feature can also wreak havoc on word processing, as the text cursor will jump around the document if the trackpad is accidentally grazed during typing. Fortunately, this is a problem that is simple to correct for both PCs and Macs.

Click on the "Start" icon. Select "Control Panel," then select "Hardware and Sound." Select "Mouse," then select "Device Settings." Select "Settings." Under this tab select the option for "Tapping." This will let you turn off the feature that moves the cursor when you tap the touchpad. Stopping Cursor Jumping for Macintosh Select "System Preferences." Select "Trackpad." Uncheck the box next to "Clicking." This will disable the tapping feature.

MSI U100 touchpad Solution


Click Start/Control Panel andlook for the Mouse and open it to check the mouse properties. Make sureyou don't have the touchpad disabled.

Some models will allow you to toggle the touchpad on or off by clicking on thebutton that is located at the top of the touch pad in the middle.

Some models will allow you to toggle the touchpad by tapping twice in the upperleft hand corner of the touchpad.

Some models will require a keystroke to toggle the touchpad. Press andHold the ALT or FN function key located at the lower left portion of thekeyboard, then hit the key that toggles the touchpad. The correct key tohit will have the icon of a finger pointing at a square that represents thetouchpad.

Download and reinstall the touch pad drivers.Get online and got towww.google.com In the google search box type: "MSI Support"(without the quotes and put your manufacturer name before Support). Lookfor downloads and drivers. Enter your model number and operating system whenrequested. Download and install the Touchpad drivers.If the touchpad still does not work after the above steps then maybe a virus or infection has hijacked the touchpad. Try booting into Safe Mode then download and install MalwareBytes and run a Quick Scan.
Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to turn itback on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see SAFEMODE. Take the Safe Mode With Networking option (this will give youinternet connectivity) and let it boot up. Safe Mode will look different toyou, the screen will be darker and the icons bigger, this is normal. Open your internet browser, then download and install MalwareBytes and run a Quick Scan.
Go to www.google.com and in the search box type:"Download cnet Malwarebytes" (without the quotes). Download andinstall malwarebytes from the sites download.cnet/malwarebytes. When thesite opens up click on the Green Download button on the left. Do notclick the Red Download button, that's junk. When it finishes installing the GuiInterface will open up with an offer to Accept a Trial Version orDecline. CLICK DECLINE you want the totally free version. Run aQUICK SCAN. As it scans, if it finds infections the number will be inred. When it finishes scanning, click SHOW RESULTS. A notepad textdocument will open up showing you the results. You can close the textdocument and go back to the Gui Interface where you will click REMOVE SELECTEDRESULTS. The objects will already be selected for you. When itfinishes removing the objects click ok and it will sometimes reboot yourmachine.

My cursor jumps suddenly from one place to another, it's very annoying while typing emails, word documents, everywhere... pls help


The usual reason this happens in laptops is that as you're typing, you hit the touchpad with the heel of your hand and the cursor moves. I've done it myself. What I suggest is turning off the touchpad and using an external mouse if you do a lot of typing. This eliminates the accidental contact, and (to me, at least) a real mouse is more comfortable for frequent use. Most computers have a switch that turns the touchpad on or off, or you can disable it through the Windows Control Panel or touchpad utility program.

Hi.
Based on the information you have provided, it seems that the issue might be due to the Touchpad "Tapping feature".
This issue usually occurs when the Touchpad Tapping feature is enabled.
You may disable this option by following the steps mentioned below:
1) Click on the "Windows" logo icon. 2) Then, type "mouse" in the search option. 3) Click on the Mouse options which should be mentioned on the search list. 4) Once you have the Mouse options window open, click on the "Device Settings" tab. 5) Then, click on the "Settings" tab. 6) This will open the "Touchpad settings" window. 7) In this window, check for the "Tapping" option. 8) Once you have found that, disable that. 9) By doing this, you will disable the Touchpad tapping feature.
Hope this helps.
Please feel free to contact for further information and assistance.

U100 msi wind netbook, webcam problems


You should be able to start the device with a default windows driver. Open windows explorer. Look at the left FOLDER pane. Under My Computer you should see USB Video device. Select it to start the webcam with default drivers. This confirms the device as working. Now, loading the correct drivers will give proper resolutions and other device-specific features of the device.
