Just above the pad is a small button, make sure that has not been accidentally pushed, that is the power button for the touchpad.

My touch pad works with a mouse,but when I tap my touch pad nothing happen's,thats when I lef click my mouse,it will move the icon,but wont tap on toanything


This has happened to me and it took me hours to figure it out. I hope yours is the same problem...
Make sure you dont have your touch pad set to off. On my ASUS It is F9 on my keyboard. the key shows an icon of the touch pad with a slash (/) through it. If you do not see this on your keyboard try looking in control panel and see if there is a setting in there. Good Luck. Please let me know if this worked.

1. Go to control panel

4. Make sure your touch pad is highlighted and click the settings button
5. one of the options is tapping, and you can enable it here

That should get your mouse to click on touch pad taps.

Good Luck!

I dont understand where the scroll zone is on my hp mini. Is it actually on the touch pad, and if so where?


If it is on your touch pad it will be indicated with a small vertical bar, on the right hand side. Slide along that to scroll.

If it doesn't work, then the laptop doesnt have one, and you'll have to use the scroll bar at the side of a web page. (double tap but keep hold on the second tap, this indicates holding down a click) then move up or down as required.

Hope this helps,

My blitz doesnt text


Try this. Touch Keypad simulates a wireless phone keypad on the touch screen to allow you to enter text, numbers, and symbols just as if you were using a wireless phone keypad. Touch Keyboard simulates a 20-key QWERTY (typewriter) keyboard on the touch screen to allow you to enter text, numbers, and symbols similar to the way you would using a QWERTY keyboard. To use Touch Keypad or Touch Keyboard:  In a program, tap the Input Selector arrow, and then tap Touch Keypad or Touch Keyboard. To type lowercase letters, tap the keys on the dial pad or keyboard. To type a single uppercase letter, tap the Shift key and then tap the corresponding key. To type all uppercase letters, tap the Shift key twice. To change back to all lowercase letters, tap again. To enter a space after the word, tap the Space key. To start a new line, tap the Enter key. To backspace and delete a single character in any input mode, press the Back key. To open the Symbol pad, tap the Symbol key. To change the input mode:  Tap the Input mode key to switch to a different input mode: XT9 (predictive), Multitap (abc), or Numeric (123).

Hope this helps, let me know if this works or if I can help you with anything else.

Toshiba notebook touchpad tap doesnt work


Goto 'Control Panel - Mouse - Device Settings, Highlight the device in the list and then click settings. It Might just be that it needs re-configuring. Devices like this tend to loose there configuration due to being used so much and of course the ammount of pressure put on them. There is alot you can reset here. The touch pad does alot more than you think, We just dont bother to look at the settings because we are too busy looking at the screen,and rightly so. Im not saying this will rectify the problem but its worth a try.
