When i click on de touch,it does not work,,felp me plz


Reinstall the touchpad driver from sony support page of your computer model.
  • If the touchpad works intermittently, erratically, or without touching it, the problem may be caused by a recently installed piece of software.Troubleshoot the computer to see if the software is causing the problem.
  • If model-specific information is required to complete any of the steps in this solution, refer to the operating instructions supplied with the computer. Manuals are available online through the Manuals/Specs/Warranty link on this page.
  • This problem may be caused by an installed printer that is not physically attached and turned on. Attach and turn on the printer and then start the notebook. If this solves the issue, contact the manufacturer of your printer for additional troubleshooting information.
  • Touchpad driver updates are available through the Drivers & Software link on this page.
  • Because each of these steps represents a possible solution to this problem, check the touchpad status after completing each step.
  • It is advised to use the VAIO Care™ troubleshooters and/or hardware diagnostics to help resolve your issue.
  1. Make sure that an external USB mouse is not connected to the notebook.
  2. Verify the correct AC adapter is being used and connected properly.
  3. If the problem is that the pointer is moving around the screen erratically, make sure the touchpad is not accidentally being touched while using the keyboard. NOTE: Try covering the touchpad with a piece of cardboard or paper while typing on the keyboard to see if in fact the touchpad is being touched while typing .
  4. If the problem is that the pointer is moving too fast or that it is difficult to double-tap or double-click, slow down the speed of the pointer and the double-click speed.
  5. Turn off and then restart the computer and, as the computer is restarting, press the F10 key to launch the VAIO Recovery application. If the touchpad does not work properly while in the VAIO Recovery application, then the issue is hardware based and service will be required to resolve the issue. If the touchpad works properly, proceed with the rest of this procedure. NOTE: Unless you wish to do so, or as a last resort to resolve this issue, it will not be necessary to proceed with any of the recovery procedures.
  6. Exit the VAIO Recovery application and restart the computer in Safe Mode with Networking. NOTE: The remaining step of this procedure will be performed with the computer in the Safe Mode with Networking mode.
  7. Reinstall the touchpad drivers. NOTE: The touchpad drivers can be reinstalled through the Drivers & Software link on this page.
  8. Use the System Restore feature to restore the computer to a point when the touchpad was working correctly.

The troubleshooting steps listed above should resolve your problem. If you have completed all of the steps and the problem is not fixed, service may be required.

Intermittantly the curser freezes then erratically moves around the screen by itself. I am unable to move or 'control' the curser so find it difficult to shut down to do a re-start. I usually have to hold...


Make sure that you are not placing the hand on the touchpad while typing.... This might be due to the drivers issue with the touchpad.. Try to unistall the drivers of touchpad from the device manager.. Then install a fresh copy from the dell website(www.support.acer.com).. If the issue is yet to be fixed please contact Acer to replace the touchpad....

While I am typing on the keyboard the cursor will skip around in my document. I find that if I do not watch closeley, my indented document is a mess. All the parts are there but they are scrambled.


A couple things can cause this to happen....

1. While you're typing, your hand or thumb might be hitting the mouse area near the keyboard which causes the mouse to move around.
2. You could have some heavy resource program running in the background which slows the system down.
3. You have an infrared mouse without a proper mouse pad so the infrared causes the light to bounce around causing issues.
4. A virus :(

My Dell Inspiron 6000 notebook computer curser "jumps around"


I frequently have the same thing when using a Dell laptop. The problem MAY be with the touch pad. Without noticing it, my thumb touches the pad and away goes the cursor!

So try this: Open the control panel and go to mouse. Look at the top for Touchpad. There is a setting in there for sensitivity. Reduce the setting so that you need to apply more pressure on the touch pad to move the cursor. Test it a few times to make sure it is still functional before closing the control panel. Then try typing something in a word processor and see if it is any better.

Good luck, and please let me know if this helps.

Acer aspire touchpad over sensitive


Hi,
Your laptop should have software pre-installed for your touchpad. This should probably be in the Control Panel. Once you find the software there should be options to change the sensitivity. Hope I helped.

Erratic curser, jumping


Go to my computer, right click>properties>hardware tab>device manager, then look down the list for mice and pointing devices, click the '+' sign and right click on your touchpad and select uninstall, do the same on the keyboard line and then restart the pc.

Both touchpad and keyboard will be reinstalled and then ready to use again as it should be back to normal

Keyboard curser bounces around


Are you bumping the touch pad while you type? This may be causing the curser to move around. This laptop is known for its sensitive touch pad.
