This can be set to tap for you as it is a simple setting in the mouse control panel.

Go to your start menu and open Control panel, select classic view in the top left corner if there are less than 20 icons(pictures) in the menu. Now double click on the mouse icon. Click on the advanced tab. then select your synaptec device in the list and click the properties button below.

There are several options on the menu, one will say "Tap to Click"
Check the box beside it and then click OK on this window and the mouse window.

Close the control panel by tapping the pad and you're on your way.


I hope this helps Fixya,

Chris

My eMachines notebook, the touchpad is no longer working. Re-loaded drivers from web site, still not working?


For touch pad lagging, adjusting the mouse setting should fix the problem.

Select Control Panel from the start menu

double click on Mouse icon

Select the Pointer Options tab in the top

In the motion section, set the pointer speed in the middle.

And also tick Enhance pointer precision .

Click Apply and OK.

Please rate me if this solution works for you

Thanks......Have a great time.

The pointer doesnt move sometimes AT ALL


It may be in "accessibility" mode.

Tap the touchpad five times. A message will appear. Change it to normal mode, disable accessibility option.

Touchpad stopped working arrow still works


sounds like you need to adjust the sensitivity, as you can customize this to prevent accidental double taps.

you should have some software to configure your touchpad, this will either be from the manufacturer or you can use the "mouse settings" in control panel.

Pointer moves but cannot tap it


You should go to Start, Control Panel, and open the Mouse control settings. Locate the Touchpad settings menu. This may open a new Dell menu giving you several choices. You want to select "Touchpad settings". Inside this settings menu, you should find a checkbox that says "Tap to click". Make sure this is checked.

Mouse running away


Does this model have both the touchpad AND the little eraser-head pointer affixed in the keyboard?

If so, wiggle the eraserhead pointer thoughout its entire range of motion several times. Don't be afraid of it.

No eraserhead?

Your touchpad is defective. Replace, or disable it in the bios and use an external touchpad or optical mouse. Get one that has a USB plug.

Laptop pointer floats across screan out of control


Is this a cXXX series Dell laptop? If so, this is a common problem with the touchpad and integrated wrist rest and bezel. You can disable the touchpad within the synaptics control panel if you use it. If you just use the windows driver, you may not be able to disable this. I will sometimes just disable both the touchpad and touchpoint and go with an external USB just so it does not wander.
