You may very well find you ALPS driver installed on the laptop in question doesn't have a sensitivity setting.

In that case you can try locating this driver:
ALPS Touchpad Driver 7.2.302.105
I know it can be found on "www.softpedia.com".

Installing it may resolve your problem as it updates the lack of sensitivity settings in older ALPS drivers for touchpads that have the capability to discern the level of pressure being applied to them.

Can't shut off touch pad for typing, Dell N5050


Make sure the Alps Pointing Device Driver (for the touch pad) is loading at startup so you get the option to toggle this on/off with the Fn/F3 key combination.

Start->Search msconfig should get you the program you need to run to check- look under startup tab and ensure the Alps Pointing Device driver is checked.so it's loading at startup.

Hope this helps.

What is touch pad onmy acer aspire 5532, and how can I turn it on/ use it?


I just so happen to have the same computer, look at the top where the on and off switch is at, on the left side is the on and off button for the touch pad. You should see a orange light on when the touch pad is disabled. It's the button with a drawing of a hand on a square. If the orange light is off then the touch pad is enabled, now you have a different problem.
Now go to Device Manger (via start,control panel, Systems & Security -- should see Device Manager in blue), go to Mice & other pointing device, right click on the Alps info, then click on update device driver. If Windows doesn't automatically update, then you have to go to Acer's webpage, then support, then drivers and downloads, fill in the info on your computer to be directed to the proper driver, then download the driver file for Alps mouse/touchpad. This should help (I hope), good luck.

control panel----Mouse----Should bring you to a screen with several tabs at the top-----pointer options tab---Select a pointer speed this should slow down the mouse movement----then go to the first tab (touchpad) and you can change the touchpad sensitivity. Hope this helps

The cursor jumps from line or field on its own...I could typing away and before I know it, the cursor has moved to another field or to the middle of another word! real pain in the ****


You will probably want to adjust the pressure sensitivity on your laptop's touch pad to alleviate this problem. If you have Windows, enter the control panel from the start menu.

1. START > Control Panel
2. Find Mouse or Pointing Devices.
3. Enter the Pointing Devices Control Panel.
Things can vary a bit in this section. So you should look for anything that deals with Pressure settings or Pointing Settings. One setting should be labeled "Touch Sensitivity." This setting controls how much pressure is required on the touch pad.
-If you move the setting lower (or move the slider to the left) this decreases the sensitivity. It is harder to accidently move the cursor if you brush the touchpad while typing.
-If you move the setting higher (or move the slider to the right) this increases the sensitivity. It is easier to accidently move the cursor if you brush the touchpad while typing.
(Note that in some configurations, these are opposite - left to increase senstivity and right to decrease sensitivity).

Depending on your laptop there may also be a setting labeled Touchpad Pressure. It's a setting that resgisters if you are accidently leaning on the touch pad. It's designed to reduce the chance of accidental clicks or motions. This setting is generally controlled the same way the Touchpad Sensitivity setting is controlled, through left-right sliders. I've found that keeping the touchpad sensitivity low makes it easier to avoid accidental cursor motions. I also keep the Pressure setting relatively high as well. One thing you'll note that if you adjust these settings to far into one extreme or the other, you will have difficulty using your touchpad. Fine tune these two setting until you achieve the results you want.

I have a Dell laptop computer with Windows Vista Basic. The mouse on the screen has become very sensitive and sometimes it clicks on an item when it scrolls across the screen. How can I make it less...


  1. Right-click on the desktop and select Personalize > Mouse Pointers . The Mouse Properties settings window will open.
  2. Alternately, click Start and type Mouse in the Search field, and select Mouse when it becomes available in the program list. The Mouse Properties settings window will open.
  3. Select the Device Settings tab. Select the Synaptics TouchPad device and click Settings . In the Properties for Synaptics TouchPad window, expand the Sensitivity topic.
  4. Select the PalmCheck option to adjust the sensitivity of the touchpad to avoid erratic cursor movement caused by accidental touching of the pad during normal typing.
  5. Select the Touch Sensitivity option to adjust how much finger pressure is required to move the mouse on the screen and how responsive the touchpad is to taps.
