SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: acer aspire one mouse pad clicks not working stuck on right click

If you are saying the right button is down and is not coming back up, then either the plastic lip on the button is jambed against the palmrest, or the actual mechanical part of the mouse button underneath has collapsed and has become non-functional. If the right button clicks but does not do anything like bring up the selection window in windows then that may be a hardware issue related to XP, try this, go to the control panel > system > hardware > device manager> scroll down the Mice and pointing devices. Highlight the touchpad and click on uninstall. Make sure you are connected to the internet when you reboot and have your usb mouse hooked up so it is easy to work around this. When windows reboots it will be forced to reinstall the touchpad because it will recognize it as a new device and want to install drivers for it. If it asks to search windows update for a fresh driver, allow it and let it finish the install. See if that corrects the problem. If it is mechanical in nature, then the palmrest is going to have to be taken off and the touchpad button assembly underneath replaced.

To access Mouse Properties, select Start - Control Panel - Hardware and Sound -Mouse.

Use Mouse Properties in Windows to customize settings for pointing devices, such as button configuration, click speed, and pointer options.

Some models will require a keystroke to toggle the touchpad. Press andHold the ALT or FN function key located at the lower left portion of thekeyboard, then hit the key that toggles the touchpad. The correct key tohit will have the icon of a finger pointing at a square that represents thetouchpad.

My Dell Vostro 1014 laptop's touch pad does not work!! The buttons work fine but I'm having problems with the pad. The drivers are up to date and the application used to control the touchpad c


If you have a external mouse, or you can borrow, go into device manager to see if the pad is enabled, if okay! try a system restore bringing the computer back in time before this happened, if still no luck the sensor pad maybe defective, the last option a complete recovery of the operational system to factory setting, this will prove if the sensor pad is defective, or wire ribbon might have come loose from the motherboard.

    Touch pad is way too sensitve and any hint of accidentally touching it send mouse and/or characters all over the place. Makes this computer very difficult to use.


    Try these steps:

    1. Go to the Control Panel and double click on Mouse
    2. Go through the tabs in 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, find the "Sensitivity" setting. Try changing this setting to lower the sensitivity of the touch pad to the degree you find acceptable.
    4. Click "Apply" to apply the changes, then close the "Mouse Properties" window.

    I was just working on my laptop using my touchpad mouse. I'm sure I accidently hit a button but I didn't think I did. Well anyways, the pointer stopped responding and the orange light in the top...


    many touch pads have a switch that you can toggle on and off to turn the touchpad on and off. It is usually in the immediate area of the touch pad.

    How do you turn off the touch pad


    Some notebook users find the touch pad annoying because at times, while typing fast, their thumbs accidentally brush up against the touchpad. This is frustrating because the mouse cursor jumps to a random location on the screen and can cause undesirable things.

    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.

    Check the system setup F2 at start, and ensure the touchpad is enabled, next try an external mouse, see if it works.
    If and external mouse works, the touch pad has failed and a new palmrest is needed.
