How to reduce the sensitivity of a laptop touchpad running windows 8


A touchpad is simply a mouse. Type "mouse" in the search box to bring up the mouse settings. The adjustment mouse and touchpad should be there. Another way is to go to "control panel" and find mouse there to change the settings. It may read "input devices".

If there's a touchpad icon in the notification (tray) area on the lower right, it might have an option to lower the sensitivity. The Control Panel should supply an applet to the touchpad. The best answer is to get a mouse and disable the faulty touchpad.. the can be replaced too. Once a touchpad gets sensitive like that, the mere tapping on the keys of the keyboard can cause the pointer to move on you.

Touchpad Scrolling


The scrolling feature on a laptop touchpad can take some getting used to, which causes some users to disable the feature.
Whether scrolling was intentionally turned off or never enabled on the laptop, it can easily be turned on from the "Mouse Properties" menu.

Click "Start" (or the Windows logo button in Vista and Windows 7) and select "Control Panel." Select "Classic View" in Vista if not already displayed. Double click "Mouse."
You may also access "Mouse Properties" in Vista and Windows 7 by clicking the Windows logo and typing "Mouse" in the search box.
Press "Enter," then click "Mouse" when the search is finished.
Select the "Hardware" tab.
Select the touchpad and click "Properties."
Click "Change Settings" if the settings aren't displayed.
Click the "Device Settings" tab in Windows 7 and select the touchpad.
Click "Settings."
Click "Virtual Scrolling" in the touchpad properties window.
Click the boxes next to each "Enable Scrolling" box and click "OK." Scrolling is now turned on for your touchpad.

Touch screen not working


The touchpad on the Acer Aspire is built into the notebook itself, which makes the device much harder to troubleshoot or replace. While you can connect a universal serial bus mouse to the notebook if the touchpad becomes unresponsive, attaching any external device reduces the notebook's portability. Although hardware failure can cause the touchpad to stop working, most device-related problems are due to software settings or other conflicts.

Hardware Conflict
Peripheral devices connected to the Aspire can interfere with the integrated touchpad. Disconnect all of the external devices, except for the power adapter, that are connected to the Aspire; then restart the computer. Test the touchpad after booting into Windows. If the touchpad responds, a hardware device is interfering with the pointing device. Reconnect each device one by one to the notebook, testing the touchpad throughout. If the pointing device stops responding after connecting a particular device, the component is interfering with the touchpad. Go to the device manufacturer's website and look up the product model. Check the bulletin board to see if the manufacturer has posted a notice or update addressing issues with device conflicts. If no such update is available, download the latest driver for the component and install it on the computer. b> Disabled Touchpad b> The Acer Aspire 5516 comes with a preset group of keyboard combinations, called hotkeys, that are used to enable or disable devices, configure sound volume and screen brightness, and control the notebook mode. The hotkeys "Fn" and "F7" turn the touchpad on and off. If the integrated mouse is unresponsive, hold down "Fn" and press "F7"; then test the touchpad to see if the device reactivates. If the touchpad still doesn't work, open Device Manager from within the Control Panel. Expand "Mice and Other Pointing Devices," then right-click the touchpad device. If the touchpad is disabled in Device Manager, you'll see the "Enable" option in the context menu. Click it to turn the touchpad back on; then restart the computer. Corrupt Driver b> Windows Vista talks to the touchpad through a program called a device driver. The driver enables Windows Vista to "see" the touchpad and send it instructions. Once the driver communicates these instructions to the touchpad, the touchpad informs the processor that it needs to perform a task, and a specific set of code is performed. If the driver for the touchpad is outdated or corrupt, or if the driver isn't compatible with the OS -- Acer offers touchpad drivers for Windows XP and Windows 7, but these drivers won't work with Windows Vista -- the touchpad becomes unresponsive. Expand the "Mouse and Other Pointing Devices" section from within Device Manager; if Windows detects a problem with the driver, it places a yellow exclamation point or red "X" next to the device. Double-click the touchpad driver to see the error message; then look up the message on the Microsoft Support website for further assistance. b> Touchpad Settings b> Mouse Properties, accessed through the Control Panel, contains several different configuration settings that can alter how the touchpad behaves on the Aspire 5516. On the "Device Settings" tab is the option "Disable Internal Pointing Device When External USB Pointing Device Is Attached." As the option states, if an external mouse is connected to the Aspire 5516, the touchpad will stop working; disable this option if you're using an external pointing device. Clicking the "Settings" button opens the "Properties for Synaptics Touchpad" window. On this screen are the "PalmCheck" and "Touch Sensitivity" options. If PalmCheck is set too high, or Touch Sensitivity too low, the touchpad won't respond to normal touch, making the device seem unresponsive. Hope this helps.

Want to turn off touchpad,because it disturbs my writing


You can disable the touchpad of your laptop by clicking the "Disable Device" in the Touch Pad setting. You can even disable the touchpad from the BIOS setup [press F2 or del when the computer starts to enter BIOS settings].

My daughter has a dell laptop. the mouse is not working. she wasn't able to right click now she can't use it at all. she feels she might have disabled it.


Hi, most probably you are refering to the built-in touch pad on the laptop, because a mouse is actually an external device, which can also be used on a laptop. But, I am presuming that you are refering to the touchpad, rather than a mouse, since it is a laptop.
There are 2 possibilities :-
1) there my be a hardware failure, as far as the touchpad component is concerned. And how do you find this out ?
Is your duaghter's Dell Laptop still covered under Hardware Warranty from Dell ? If yes, then call Dell Hardware Technical Support 1-800-624-9896 (24/7) , (I am presuming that you are in the US) and they would diagnose (at no charge) whether there is any hardware failure with the laptop's touchpad component. If there is, then Dell would send you a technician and get it replaced.
If your daughter's Dell laptop does NOT have a Hardware Warranty, then Dell Dell Hardware Technical Support would charge you US$ 59.00 as a diagnostics fee, to provide phone support, in order to diagnose if the touchpad is defective or not.
Incase your daughter's Dell laptop does NOT have a Hardware Warranty, then try what is mentioned in point # 2 below, before you spend US$ 59.00 as a diagnostics fee.
2) The second and most likely reason for the issue is that the settings for the touchpad have been changed. You can get the settings corrected using the Dell Touchpad Utility. If you are using vista or windows 7, just type in " Dell Touchpad Utility " in the start search option, by clicking on the windows start logo on the left side of the taskbar, open the Dell Touchpad Utility, and correct the settings, for example, right click may be disabled, etc.
You may even re-install the driver for the touchpad, by going to www.support.dell.com, click on support for home users, Drivers and Downloads, then enter either the service tag of the Dell Laptop or select the model, you will get a concise list of drivers for your specific product model : from there, download & re-install the touchpad;s driver listed in Input Device Drivers, after which reboot the laptop and the issue most probably should get resolved.
It would have been nice to know the exact model of the Dell Laptop and the Operating System that is running on it.
But, please do try the above and I hope the issue gets resolved.

How do you change from a single to double click on the pad of my laptop so that in a moving truck I am able to control the computer


I am not sure if you're asking about how to change the settings to make a single tap on the touchpad function like double click. You can go to control panel>mice or touchpad.

If you're just asking how to do double click on the touchpad, by default, it's set to tapping the touchpad twice. You can change change the speed settings in control panel too.

My touchpad on my Toshiba A215-S7428 is acting erratically. I've already gone into the settings and changed the zones but if I hover over any icon it will open it without any tapping -- help!!


uninstall the touchpad drivers and reboot laptop use an usb mouse to remove drivers as this will be needed.

then it should reload drivers and all will be fine if not then goto Toshiba's website and download the touchpad drivers and install then reboot laptop all should be fine.

and be very carefull when you are near the touchpad as the buttons are easily pressed.

good luck

I have toshiba notebook A200.I have been using a USB mouse,and I now can not get the touch pad to operate.Plerase advise me what I can do.I have tried FL F9 to no avail.


If you unplug the mouse and then start up the machine does the touchpad not work at that point?

Some systems have a settings in BIOS that prevent the touchpad from working if a mouse if connected.

Try unplugging, start up and if the touchpad doesn't work, shut down and go into the system settings and turn on the touchpad (if turned off).

Also, make sure the device manager doesn't show any Yellow Exclamation points, meaning a bad or missing driver. To get to Device Mananger, go to control panel, system, hardware, device manager (in Windows XP that is).
