Touch pad error

    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

    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.

sure you deleted something, how else can a driver just go byebye.
NO OS stated is this XP
we cant guess what OS is there ever.
so does mouse work, usb plugged in , that be first.
after checking device manager, for touch pad , driver errors
then know a pad this old can be bad.
it can also be set wrong in control panel, click mouse
and set it as you like.

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.

I lost my manual and I am getting an F22 display. What does this mean?

CCU/Touchpad/LED assembly error(F-22)*

Hi.This error occurs if the touchpad/DED assembly is not able to transmit/receive data to/from the central control unit (CCU)

Check the following:::

A.Check the touch-pad/LED assembly by selecting different cycles and changing the modifiers and options available to confirm the touch-pad/LED is responding. If the results are negative, move on to the next step.

B.Unplug washer or disconnect power.(Make sure you unplug the unit for 5 minutes, thsi will reset the panel, and restore proper functions if the damage inst severe)

C.Check Wire Harness connectors to the touch-pad/LED assembly and Central Control Unit (CCU)

***((Ok, if all fails to revive proper functions above, this will confirm a major issue that concerns the wiring harness that is used to link the touch pad to the CCU))

Can't disable touch pad

Windows hides rarely used icons. If your does, then the task bar shows a left pointing arrow < . Click it and look for the icone for touchpad.

If you cant find that icon,
1. Start
2. Contol Panel
3. Right click the Mouse icon.
4. Under the Touchpad ON/OFF thumbnail, put a check mark in the disable option.
5. Use the same procedure to enable touchpad

Error code F7

your problem is with the EOC (Electronic oven control) or touch pad if it is seperate from the control...if the touch pad is seperate...unplug range - access the control panel - remove the wiring/tape wire from touchpad to EOC...plug range back in...leave over night...if f7 code comes back it's the EOC...if the error code clears it's the touchpad...replace the part with the problem...if touchpad built into EOC replace the EOC. Hope this helps...if you have any other questions please feel free to comment again.

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.

Istalling mouseb has turned off touch pad ?

This usually happens so you dont have 2 mice running at once. Unplug the new mouse and your touchpad should come back.
