Go to your "Device Manager" (Right click on ‘My Computer', select 'Properties', click the 'Hardware' tab, click the 'Device Manager' button. Click the "Pointer/Navigator"). If there is some kind of a "Warning" icon superimposed on the "Pointer/Navigator" icon there is your problem!
Uninstall the DRIVERS for THAT DEVICE only.
Click on the faulty devise and hit the remove button, follow the instructions given by the program.
Shutdown, restart, the device will automatically reinstall by the "Found New Hardware" program.").
Or it could be dirt or soda.

Touchpad


Have you tried both areas to double click (the middle of the touchpad and the left touchpad button)? Check your mouse properties and make sure the right click is not the one you should be hitting. Maybe the left and right got switched somehow. Go into the touchpad properties and set everything back to default.

Boot the system in Safe Mode and see if you have the same problem.

Maybe your keyboard has been hijacked so run a virus scan.

Maybe your keyboard cable is loose or the keyboard is going bad. You'll have to remove the keyboard to get to the cable.

Touchpad not working right


You need to re-open your laptop cover to check whether the wire contacts of the touchpad connected to the motherboard of your laptop are all OK.

Also, this kind of issues occur if something like water or oil is on the touchpad causing it to not behave as expected (eg: scrolling one pos at a time instead of all the way down ). Also if your fingers are sweaty this can occur.

Now, for the right-left clickable buttons of the touchpad, you probably need to check again if anything's broken on the inside of the laptop.

Hello, i am having issues with my touchpad not working at times, i can be online browsing and it will not click certain links and also when i am on the internet the page doesnt fully load, it says done but...


Hi tadams649...

To fix an unresponsive touchpad on your laptop, reactivate it by using the Function key on the keyboard and the Fn key.

This process is different for each computer manufacturer.
If unsure which Function key enables and disables the touchpad, try each one at a time and then
attempt to use the touchpad after each one.

A...Locate the "Fn" key of the laptop keyboard.
The "Fn" key has different colored text or the key is a different color.
B...Locate the function (F1 through F12) key at the top of the keyboard that disables or enables the touchpad on the laptop.
The key typically has an icon that resembles a touchpad with a finger touching it or a touchpad with a diagonal line through it.
C...Press both the "Fn" and touchpad Function key at the same time to reactive the touchpad on your laptop.
Move your finger along the touchpad to verify that it works. Press the combination at any time to disable the touchpad again.
Note: Mac computers use "F2" to enable and disable the touchpad.
D. Sony Vaio Users: Start>Settings>Control Panel>Double click the Mouse icon.
Look at the top left hand side of the page, at the top and make sure that the "Tapping" box is unchecked, if it is checked then, you will uncheck it.

How can deactivate the pad?i dont want to click with a double touch...thanks


To turn the TouchPad on/off, quickly double-tap the TouchPad off indicator (the yellow LED) at the left top corner. If the touchpad is disabled it is indicated by a yellow LED on upper left corner of the touchpad and when the TouchPad is active, the light is off.
This would disable the touchpad completely. Also, if you wish to disable just the double-click through double-tap, you can do this by going to the mouse/touchpad options from the control panel.

Hope it helps! Good Luck! Thanks for using Fixya!

Dear Sue_s46,

Try and double chek all settings relate to keyboard and mouse by following below steps.

go to control panle- Mouse, double check it has not changed the settings the way normally works for left-right click and wheel.

regarding keyboard, go to control panle- regional and language settings. double check all settings are fine there.

if you dont get luck with anything, you might have Sony utility relate to keyboard/mouse. you can search for that program from start menu and within all programms.

let me know, if nothing works or any other issues.

also, let me know which operating system you have on Sony Laptop?

Many Thanks.

I've had the acer one for 2 weeks. While using it today, the single and double click functions of the touchpad stopped working. The touchpad still moves the arrow around the screen and the left and right...


Hello cskpuels,

It sounds like the touchpad is working ok but probably needs some setting(s) adjusted. The touchpad settings can be accessed through the windows control panel. But before going to the control panel it's useful to review the touchpad basics for single and double clicking. They are as follows:
•Tap once on the main touchpad for single click.
•Tap twice for double click.
•The lighter the touch, the better the response.
•Tapping harder will not increase the touchpad's responsiveness.

•Opening the Control Panel
The Windows Control Panel can be opened by:
Selecting *Start > Control Panel (on Windows Vista)
- OR -
Start > Run > Type 'Control' and select OK (on Windows XP)
*The Enter key may be used on the keyboard in place of touchpad clicking*

In the Control Panel, do the following:
•Select Mouse [Enter] (Brings up the touchpad properties sheet)
•Look at the Buttons tab in the touchpad properties sheet.
•Adjust the settings and test the touchpad until you get the response you desire.

Have a great day,
