Sounds like the buttons are sticking. The buttons can be pulled up and cleaned. But, upmost care has to be given to remove the buttons without breaking them. If new purchase, you might be able to exchange at place of purchase.

My laptop touch pad not working so i want to touch cable\


Click Start/Control Panel andlook for the Mouse and open it to check the mouse properties. Make sureyou don't have the touchpad disabled.

Some models will allow you to toggle the touchpad on or off by clicking on thebutton that is located at the top of the touch pad in the middle.

Some models will allow you to toggle the touchpad by tapping twice in the upperleft hand corner of the touchpad.

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.

Download and reinstall the touch pad drivers.Get online and got towww.google.com In the google search box type: "Dell Support"(without the quotes and put your manufacturer name before Support). Lookfor downloads and drivers. Enter your model number and operating system whenrequested. Download and install the Touchpad drivers.

Hello My HP G60 549DX touchpad started having problems, while the laptop is charging the touchpad wont work(sometimes, not always) and the touch click wont work, i have to use the right click...


It isn't likely that your laptop charger is the problem and it is more likely that is is just your touch pad. So you shouldn't buy a new laptop charger unless you absolutely think you have to. If you do, make sure that you buy it from HP instead of a third party for a lower chance of problems. It's more likely that it's just your touch pad that is faulty.

My cursor moves as i type what can i do


You seem to be brushing against the touch pad while you're typing. You need to adjust the sensitivity of that touch pad:
Click on the "Start" icon in the lower left corner of the screen. Select "Control Panel." Next select "Mouse" under "Hardware and Sound." You can also left-click the touchpad while the cursor is anywhere on the desktop. From that screen, choose "Mouse Pointers." Select the "Buttons" tab at the top of the dialog box that opens. This shows the type of touchpad device installed on your laptop. 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 "Apply." Pick the "Device Settings" tab from the dialog box now. You can see the touchpad for your Vista machine highlighted on this screen. Select "Settings." Read the information provided in the next dialog box. It gives you options for tapping your touchpad, using the buttons, scrolling, pointer motion and sensitivity. 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. 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.

Compaq Presario CQ50 + over sensitive touch pad


Try the mouse settings in the control panel, also try uninstall any touchpad software and remove any touchpad software from running when the pc boots.
To do this either type msconfig into the run/search box or a program like cc cleaner under tools/startup

I have some how deactivated my touch pad


power cucle your computer make sure that you turn off ther computer completely.

if still the same then you need to uninstall the youchpad driver under uninstall program. look for the Synaptics TouchPad Driver.

I check the model of your computer under the toshiba wesite and I found out that you have a synatipcs driver.

Then go to this link to download the driver
http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/modelContent.jsp?ct=DL&os=&category=&moid=2175704&rpn=PSLB0U&modelFilter=L300-ST2501&selCategory=3&selFamily=1073768663

Note:
The touchpad still works even without the synaptics driver. Once you uninstall the touchpad driver and still yur having the same issue then it is a posible touchpad issue means the hardware itself.

Acer aspire touchpad over sensitive


Hi,
Your laptop should have software pre-installed for your touchpad. This should probably be in the Control Panel. Once you find the software there should be options to change the sensitivity. Hope I helped.

Not working right click of touch pad of Acer Aspire 4710z


Hey!

What operating system are you running? All I could find was a manual for your model: http://tinyurl.com/6gc7pl

If you are using Windows XP, you might try going to Control Panel -> Mouse -> On the first tab (Buttons) check "Switch primary and secondary buttons." then hit "Apply".

Try left-clicking (currently assigned to be the right-click) on your Start button and see if the menu with "Explore All Users" on the very bottom opens. If it does, then your touchpad is most likely defective and would have to be fixed (www.fixmyacer.com). If the menu doesn't come up, then it is a software issue and is 100% fixable.

"sticky" mouse on compaq laptop


Unless your left mouse button has been severely damaged, it is unlikely that a loose button is the cause of your problem. More likely, it is your touchpad. Chances are your touchpad is set to click when tapped. Oversensitive touchpads can click randomly when you're dragging your finger across the touchpad.

To test this, position your cursor over a link (or other button) but don't press the left mouse button. Instead, lightly tap the touchpad itself. If the link or button is clicked, go to your Control Panel and adjust the Mouse options so your touchpad no longer clicks when tapped. It's usually a setting titled "tap to click" or something along those lines.

Javabytes
