    My Dell Inspiron 8100 has this problem from time to time. Sometimes I can correct it by doing a hard reset (take out the battery and unplug power cord.) Also, sometimes I can go to Device Manager, uninstall the PS 2

    mouse and restart the computer. Crazy! It will last for a while then it is gone again. I have a USB touchpad that I can plug in when the touchpad is not working (Most of the time.) Unlike most, I prefer the built-in touchpad. Wish I could find a replacement.

    When I touch the pad there is no answer on the screen. The computer cursor does't move. There is no problem with moving the cursor by mouse.

    I can use the touchpad by using the cursor but it does not function the double click tap ,what can be the problem

  • speshstud Mar 18, 2009

    My touchpad isn't responding. It says the mouse is working properly under control panel-mouse, and my USB mouse works. However, I prefer the built-in touchpad. I tried Fn + F7 and Windows + F7. The "Turn Caret Browsing ON/OFF" popped up, but the touchpad still doesn't work. I was told there may be a hotkey, but I can't find anything else about it. Please help.

The sz series is notrious for having a crappy touchpad - I struggled with mine for years - setn *** back to Sony siad that I needed a new motherboard. Yeah, right... to fix the touch pad.
Well I saced the $699 - and did the black tape fix, and smooth sailing since.

I am hitting all the forums Sony, so hope you read this.  This is the only recourse I have for you having tried to jack me for 700 dollars.

SOURCE: key board and touch pad do not work

Did it shut off on the keypad? Sometimes things are being so frustrating that we forget that the keypad has a shutoff that can get bumped. Make sure it's on.

Touch pad turn off

Hey Harvery,

To turn off the touch pad on your system you can right click on the touchpad properties and choose touchpad properties located on your taskbar to the right. Once you have it open you will see where to turn the touchpad off.

Go to the touchpad properties, touchpad settings, Enable TouchCheck, set the slider to the far left (1/2 Second Delay) this will disable the touch pad while typing and enable it 1/2 second after you stop typing

Asus touch pad too sensitive

There should be settings in the touch pad software on your machine or in the task bar that you can directly access to change all manner of personal idiosyncrasies related to HID. (Human interface device) Try also going into the control panel and looking for input devices, mouse, touchpad and adjusting the settings from within there.

How do I disable touch pad when using a mouse? ASUS K50IJ Win7 64 bit

To turn off the touchpad when an external mouse or other pointing device is present, you can goto the Control Panel and double click the Mouse properties icon.

Click the Device Select tab and check "Disable Touch Pad when USB Pointing Device is present." The cursor will no longer move via the touchpad.

Alternatively, you can permanently disable the touchpad of your laptop by clicking the "Disable Device" in the Touch Pad setting. Advanced users can disable the touchpad from the BIOS setup [press F2 when the computer is booting to enter BIOS settings]

Unfortunately, there are no keyboard shortcuts to enable/disable Touchpad movement or tapping. You can however drag the Mouse icon from the control panel to your Quick launch bar for quick access.

If that sounds too much effort, you may consider adjusting the sensitivity of the touchpad. This can be accessed from the Touch Pad tab of our mouse properties. Choose a low setting.

Need touch pad advice

probably need a driver or at least an updated driver.

Also go into the control panel and see if there is an icon for the touchpad... double-click on that icon and look for settings to enable the scroll pad.

Mouse touch pad problem Lenovo Y410 model notebook

Just above my keyboard there is a little black strip with little lights.
they are control buttons and if you tap one of them it turns the touchpad off and on (so it's very easy to do accidentally).

 If you look really closely at the strip in good light (or restart the laptop to see them flash on and off) you'll see that one looks like a touchpad crossed out. Just press this to get your touchpad back.

If it doesnt solve the problem, I have noticed that the touchpad can be knocked out by a Window Update of something called ideacom. If you believe this could be the problem please clarify.
