Jumping print size

If there's a touchpad icon in the notification (tray) area on the lower right, it might have an option to lower the sensitivity. The Control Panel should supply an applet to the touchpad. The best answer is to get a mouse and disable the faulty touchpad.. the can be replaced too. Once a touchpad gets sensitive like that, the mere tapping on the keys of the keyboard can cause the pointer to move on you.

Gateway the touch pad not function why?

Adjusting the touchpad sensitivity on a Gateway laptop lets you fix and prevent annoying touchpad problems.
Often the touchpad is accidentally brushed while typing, which causes the cursor to move out of place.
Or you may find yourself having to tap too hard or too often on the touchpad to open windows and programs.
These problems can be fixed by simply adjusting the touchpad's sensitivity settings.
Click the "Start" button and double-click "Control Panel."
Double-click "Hardware & Sound" and choose "Mouse" to open the mouse properties box.

Choose the "Device Settings" tab. Highlight "Synaptic Touchpad" in the Devices box by clicking on it. Click the "Settings" button underneath the Devices box.
Choose "Sensitivity" in the properties settings box.
Click "PalmCheck" to adjust the sensitivity of the touchpad to accidental brushes against the pad while typing, which causes the cursor to move.
Click and hold the pointer to adjust the setting on the sensitivity scale.

Click "Touch Sensitivity" to adjust the sensitivity of the touchpad to tapping.
Click and hold the pointer to adjust the setting on the sensitivity scale.
A higher rating on the scale means less tapping pressure will be needed.

Click "OK" to save your touchpad settings.

Please tell me how to rduce the sensitivity of touchpad on my Advent laptop that is 3 months old before it drives me to insanity!

It almost seems like magic when you type something on your notebook and the cursor jumps over the document because your palm touched the touchpad. So your text appear all over the screen and not where it ought to be. How do you solve this problem?

It is because of the input sensitivity of the notebook touchpad is too high. Many laptops come with a special driver (Ex:. Synaptics TouchPad) that can reduce the sensitivity of the touchpad. Without using such a driver, the touchpad is integrated as a normal PS/2 mouse and this means very high sensitivity. To solve this 'highly sensitive' problem,

  • Right-click on 'My Computer' and then select 'Properties' in the context menu. This opens 'System Properties' dialog box.
  • Click on the 'Hardware' tab and then on the 'Device Manager'. Here you will ?nd an entry titled 'Mice and other pointing devices' in the 'Device Manager' window. When you double-click on this entry, it shows the touchpad as a PS/2 Compatible mouse.
  • Right-click on this entry to go to the properties of the touchpad, select 'Advanced Settings', and then click on 'Sample Rate'. You can reduce the degree of sensitivity here.
  • Follow this tip and you can solve the 'jumping cursor' problem easily.

My acer aspire 5742Z touchpad is too sensitive or I don't really know how to use it. Every time I touch it something stupid happens on screen. Now it has turned my screen dispay side on and I have to use...

Definitely your touchpad is TOO SENSITIVE!
To modify the sensitivity just go
START > CONTROL PANEL > MOUSE/TOUCHPAD and adjust there the sensitivity by dragging the cursor to the LEFT until it reaches the middle.
In PROPERTIES just re-invert the functions of your touchpad to get rid of the mixed axes.

My touchpad has lost sensitivity. How do I fix it?I have to use the right.left bars underneath once I make a selection.

It seems that the sensitivity for the touchpad has dipped. Hoping that you might be using Synaptic's touchpad.
See if this helps..
1.. Click Start then click Control Panel.

2.. Click Printers and Other Hardware then click Mouse.

3.. Select the Device Settings tab.

4.. Highlight Synaptics TouchPad in the list and click the Settings

5.. Click the plus sign next to Sensitivity to change the sensitivity settings of the touchpad.

If you are not getting any positive result from changing the settings, you can uninstall and re-install the drivers for the same and then check it once again. If all fails, this leads to the result that the touchpad is itself damaged and you need to replace it.

Touchpad too sensitive

You should find the settings are either under the mouse settings, or under the touchpad's own controls, in Control Panel.
