Gateway the touch pad not function why?


Adjusting the touchpad sensitivity on a Gateway laptop lets you fix and prevent annoying touchpad problems.
Often the touchpad is accidentally brushed while typing, which causes the cursor to move out of place.
Or you may find yourself having to tap too hard or too often on the touchpad to open windows and programs.
These problems can be fixed by simply adjusting the touchpad's sensitivity settings.
Click the "Start" button and double-click "Control Panel."
Double-click "Hardware & Sound" and choose "Mouse" to open the mouse properties box.

Choose the "Device Settings" tab. Highlight "Synaptic Touchpad" in the Devices box by clicking on it. Click the "Settings" button underneath the Devices box.
Choose "Sensitivity" in the properties settings box.
Click "PalmCheck" to adjust the sensitivity of the touchpad to accidental brushes against the pad while typing, which causes the cursor to move.
Click and hold the pointer to adjust the setting on the sensitivity scale.

Click "Touch Sensitivity" to adjust the sensitivity of the touchpad to tapping.
Click and hold the pointer to adjust the setting on the sensitivity scale.
A higher rating on the scale means less tapping pressure will be needed.

Click "OK" to save your touchpad settings.

    My toshiba touchpad is not working


    1. Go to the "Control Panel" and double click on the "Mouse" item.
    2. Go through the tabs in the "Mouse Properties" window & find the tab where you can set up your touchpad. This differs from laptop to another since it is based on the touchpad's drivers.
    3. On that tab, check & make sure that your touchpad is enabled. If it is not, then change the setting to enabled.
    4. Click "Apply" to apply the changes, then close the "Mouse Properties" window.

    If you cannot find a tab to set up your touchpad, then your touchpad drivers might not be installed. In this case, you will need to install them first.

    How can I disable clicking of touchpad. I did it before but it somehow started up again.


    If you have a touchpad icon down in the bottom right hand corner on windows task bar click it and you should see a menu that comes up. In that menu you should see tap to click. click that to disable your clicking for the touchpad.

    If the option is not there go control panel and click on hardware and sound, then devices and printer. under devices and printer you should see mouse or mouse properties. There should be a option in there to turn it off too.

    Can move the mouse but not clikc with the touchpad


    Hi,

    if you installed an external mouse, it would over-ride the touchpad.
    try removing the external mouse, and tap the touchpad twice as if you were double clicking it.
    also you could try re-installing the touchpad device driver, usually synoptics or similar.
