Question about Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook

Touch pad Hey!  My touch pad is touchy when I type and I can't figure out how to get back to where you configure it.  Also, the scroll won't work on it.  When I select the customize notification icons and select show for the touch pad or anything else for that matter, it still won't show the icons and I can't get to them.  Can you help me out?

HP 2530p EliteBook - touchpad stopped working. Scrolling works except touch scrolling on right side of pad) and right button, but that's all. Wireless mouse works fine.

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.

Touch pad sony viao vpceb3j1e not working

Hey there. Often times this is a problem caused by accidentally turning it off. Look for a button on your keyboard or near the touch pad to turn the touch pad on/off. If you're using windows 7 and possible below, you won't need drivers to get the touch pad to work normally.

Touch pad not working

Yes, Allyce, it is all in the wind.

Actually, you are probably tapping the mouse pad with your thumb while you are typing, and do not even notice it. It use to happen to me all the time until I purchased an HP that has a button above the mouse pad to shut it off.

Just start typing with your thumbs held high, and you will be ok.

Need touch pad advice

probably need a driver or at least an updated driver.

Also go into the control panel and see if there is an icon for the touchpad... double-click on that icon and look for settings to enable the scroll pad.

Sony vaio touch pad not working.

My Vaio touchpad started behaving strange. I could move the curser, but no response on left or right click or double tap. Also found that in any search field or user name fields, the computer would just type endless 9's. My wireless mouse could operate the left and right click buttons, but not move the curser. A suggestion to get the mousepad operating again was to touch any key on the keyboard. This allowed it to function again. Final solution was to remove the battery, then hold down the start key for about a minute, reinsert the battery and start it up. It seems to have resolved the problem. I have a 3 month only laptop with Windows 7 already installed. Hope this helps.

Scoll bar action on touchpad works outside the scroll area

Seems like the synaptic touch pad has lost its configuration or got a little whacky.
Go to the control panel, and find the program for the touch pad.
There, try to redefine the areas for the scroll bar action.
