You will need to activate it in the bios settings, Enter the bios with your F key, have a look through the peripherals or similar and ensure that touchpad is "active"

My scrollbar isn't working on my laptop


Hello,

Boot to safe mode and check from there.

Here's how to boot to safe mode:

1. REstart your computer and tap F8 while it's restarting (some computers use F2 or Delete). If F8 doesn't work, then restart and try the other buttons.

2. Once you see the option to boot to safe mode with networking, then highlight it using the arrow keys then hit enter.

3. Once inside safe mode, try your touchpad.

If not, then check the settings if your touchpad is locked or not. Or update the drivers in your computer. I think it's synaptics but to make sure that all drivers are covered and that you will be updating the correct one, then I suggest that you scan your computer with RadarSync.

If you have any questions, please drop me a line and I'll get back to you as soon as I can.

Touch pad does not operate. have uninstalled and reinstalled correct driver and PC device manager says device is working properly with no conflicting programs. generally, the pad did not really operate...


Hello,

it is possible that the touch pad is disabled. Check control panel to actually confirm.

Since your touch pad is not operating, you will need an external mouse to perform this task.

Here is what you have to do to check if the touch pad is disabled.

Turn on your laptop, wait till it boots completely.

Click start,

Scroll to Control Panel select Control Panel.

Under control panel, (you will find a Mouse icon), click Mouse and a dialogue box will pop out.

On the dialogue box, click "Device settings".

Under device settings, you will find "Synaptics Touchpad..."

Highlight the "Synaptics Touchpad..." by clicking on it once, then click enable.

By now the mouse pad should be enabled. Apply the changes for it to take affect.

If the above doesn't solve the problem, try performing system. System restore can help to back date your computer to the time when the touch pad was working....

Go to Start > All programs > Accessories > System tools > System restore. Read and follow instructions.....

If the two solutions does not work, please let me so that I can further help you.

Yours sincerely.

Cant turn off the touchpad on my compaq presario cq50 & it's driving me nuts. HELP!


Hi Madre - Looking at the manual I can understand your frustration.

To turn the touchpad on and off you have to use button #6 (see below). Most certainly not intuitive!

My mouse disappeared on my hp 9925 screen i did a hard reset now the whole screen is black


If you power on and see the HP bios boot screen, the HP symbol, then the screen goes black, try pushing the F10 or F12 keys when you power on and select boot in safe mode. If the computer boots and you can see everything, power down and see if it will boot correctly to regular Windows. If you can not boot to a screen that you can see in safe mode you have a much larger problem and need to get a technician to look at the laptop to find the problem.

Synaptics Touchpad Enhancements stops working


I had this problem on my Dell Inspiron 1318, so I went on to their support centre and through the Chat to a technical advisor tool, they uninstalled and reinstalled the driver which controls the touchpad and now the problem is completely gone. I suggest you contact Acer or the customer service of the company that you bought your laptop from and ask them to do something similar. I didn't even need to send my laptop back, Dell were able to take control of my laptop remotely and it only took about an hour in total. Hopefully your provider will be able to offer a similar service.

You may even be able to do this yourself if you can figure out which touchpad driver you need and look on the Acer/laptop maker website support and look at updates for drivers or downloads or something similar. Personally I found using the company's expertise much easier.

Synaptics Touchpad Enhancements stops working


Hi!
I resently had the same problem on my HP laptop and search Google for possible solutions. No solution works until I tried Windovs Update and then got 5 alternatives - Synaptics PS/2 port TouchPad was one of them. I update and restart and finally solve this problem.
