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.

Mousepad on laptop too sensitive, jumps and opens links all the time


Hi I also have OS Vista, try this:-
go to the bottom left corner of the screen to the windows button and single click it, move the cursor to "control panel", leave it there and a whole new list of stuff will appear, move the cursor to "personalization" and click it once. This will open a box on the screen. Single click on "mouse pointers", this will open another smaller box with 8 tabs inside. You can click on any of these tabs and adjust your mouse actions to your own preferences, eg; how the pointer looks, how fast you double click, how fast the pointer moves on the screen, anything you like :)
Once you have made all your adjustments, click "apply" in the bottom right corner of the box and this will save the changes you've made.
I hope this helps.
