3. Set the touchpad for right or left-handed use from this dialog box. You can adjust the double click speed of your computer as well. When you finish making any changes, click "

touchpad, using the buttons, scrolling, pointer motion and sensitivity.
6. Make any changes you want from the various topics. When you make a change, click "
Apply." Click "OK" when you finish making all your changes.
7. Do some work on your computer for a while, If the touchpad is still too sensitive, return to the "Mouse" menu and continue to adjust the settings until you get them just the way you want them.

I must have hit a button and now the cursor is showing up on the big screen off the projector but I only want to see it on my laptop while doing my presentation.


Hi renee_pott, "You can choose the "Mouse Options" in the Control Panel.
First, click on the -> Start button -> Control Panel -> Hardware and Sound -> Mouse ->
Mouse Properties -> Pointer Options.
Try one 'or' more options:
* Snap To, place a (Check in the box) !
* Hide pointer while typing !
* Show location of pointer when I press the {CTRL key} !
  • Usually the "Mouse" pointer by { Default }, is displayed during a slide presentation, and when the mouse is moved.
  • " Try pressing the {Ctrl + H keys to "Hide" the mouse pointer}."
  • Left-clicking on the "Mouse" button, will advance [forward] the slide show.
  • Pressing Ctrl + A keys, will restore the "Mouse" pointer.

Mouse wont move


Are you referring to the mouse pointer when using the touch pad? To isolate the problem, try to use a USB mouse and see if the pointer will move. If the USB mouse works, then the touch pad could be disabled.

Refer to the user manual of the laptop and see on how you can enable the touch pad.

If same problem occur even though you're using a USB mouse, contact the manufacturer of the computer for second opinion or repair.

Good luck and have a great day!

Yeah, simply use this:
Control Panel - Search "Mouse" and click on Mouse.
Then click on Pointer options, and adjust the pointer speed slider to the speed you want. Also, verify that any accessibility options are off.

Cursor(pointer) cannot be moved by using touchpad but possibe wit


Hi,

This happens to me also. Check whether the touchpad is enabled (laptops do have an option of enabling / disabling the touchpad). Secondly, you can try reinstalling the touchpad driver. Uninstall and then re-install the driver. Re-boot the system. Try using the touchpad.

Hope this helps., if so, rate me.. thanks - billa

Cursor jumps around


If your cursor moves erratically on the screen (for example, if it jumps around the screen, moves at varying speeds, or selects items on its own), perform the following steps:
  1. Clean the surface of the touchpad with a dry, soft cloth to remove grease, sweat, moisture, or other liquids.
  2. Adjust the sensitivity of the touch pad:.
    1. Click the Start button and click Control Panel.
    2. Click Printers and Other Hardware.
    3. Click Mouse.
    4. When the Mouse Properties window appears, click the Pointer Options tab. (Figure 1)
      10583022.gif
      Figure 1: Pointer Speed
    5. Under Select a pointer speed:, click to move the slider bar closer to Slow.
    6. Click OK.
    7. Check to see if the touch pad still behaves erratically.
  3. If the touchpad still caused the cursor to behave erratically, attach an external mouse to your computer and restart your computer. Use the external mouse to see if your cursor still moves erratically.
