How to reduce the sensitivity of a laptop touchpad running windows 8


A touchpad is simply a mouse. Type "mouse" in the search box to bring up the mouse settings. The adjustment mouse and touchpad should be there. Another way is to go to "control panel" and find mouse there to change the settings. It may read "input devices".

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.

Touch screen not working


The touchpad on the Acer Aspire is built into the notebook itself, which makes the device much harder to troubleshoot or replace. While you can connect a universal serial bus mouse to the notebook if the touchpad becomes unresponsive, attaching any external device reduces the notebook's portability. Although hardware failure can cause the touchpad to stop working, most device-related problems are due to software settings or other conflicts.

Hardware Conflict
Peripheral devices connected to the Aspire can interfere with the integrated touchpad. Disconnect all of the external devices, except for the power adapter, that are connected to the Aspire; then restart the computer. Test the touchpad after booting into Windows. If the touchpad responds, a hardware device is interfering with the pointing device. Reconnect each device one by one to the notebook, testing the touchpad throughout. If the pointing device stops responding after connecting a particular device, the component is interfering with the touchpad. Go to the device manufacturer's website and look up the product model. Check the bulletin board to see if the manufacturer has posted a notice or update addressing issues with device conflicts. If no such update is available, download the latest driver for the component and install it on the computer. b> Disabled Touchpad b> The Acer Aspire 5516 comes with a preset group of keyboard combinations, called hotkeys, that are used to enable or disable devices, configure sound volume and screen brightness, and control the notebook mode. The hotkeys "Fn" and "F7" turn the touchpad on and off. If the integrated mouse is unresponsive, hold down "Fn" and press "F7"; then test the touchpad to see if the device reactivates. If the touchpad still doesn't work, open Device Manager from within the Control Panel. Expand "Mice and Other Pointing Devices," then right-click the touchpad device. If the touchpad is disabled in Device Manager, you'll see the "Enable" option in the context menu. Click it to turn the touchpad back on; then restart the computer. Corrupt Driver b> Windows Vista talks to the touchpad through a program called a device driver. The driver enables Windows Vista to "see" the touchpad and send it instructions. Once the driver communicates these instructions to the touchpad, the touchpad informs the processor that it needs to perform a task, and a specific set of code is performed. If the driver for the touchpad is outdated or corrupt, or if the driver isn't compatible with the OS -- Acer offers touchpad drivers for Windows XP and Windows 7, but these drivers won't work with Windows Vista -- the touchpad becomes unresponsive. Expand the "Mouse and Other Pointing Devices" section from within Device Manager; if Windows detects a problem with the driver, it places a yellow exclamation point or red "X" next to the device. Double-click the touchpad driver to see the error message; then look up the message on the Microsoft Support website for further assistance. b> Touchpad Settings b> Mouse Properties, accessed through the Control Panel, contains several different configuration settings that can alter how the touchpad behaves on the Aspire 5516. On the "Device Settings" tab is the option "Disable Internal Pointing Device When External USB Pointing Device Is Attached." As the option states, if an external mouse is connected to the Aspire 5516, the touchpad will stop working; disable this option if you're using an external pointing device. Clicking the "Settings" button opens the "Properties for Synaptics Touchpad" window. On this screen are the "PalmCheck" and "Touch Sensitivity" options. If PalmCheck is set too high, or Touch Sensitivity too low, the touchpad won't respond to normal touch, making the device seem unresponsive. Hope this helps.

Hi, I have an Acer laptop with Vista OS. Like many others, I have a prolem with the curser, jumping all over the screen, causing a lot of typing mistakes/ problems. Is there aby fix for that?


I think what is happening is the heal of your palm is touching the touchpad. Try going in to the Control panel and lowering the sensitivity.

How can I disengage the extremely sensitive touch pad on my Gateway notepad T-6321.c I find that almost every time I try to input data or write a message, if I even barely touch the touch pad by accident,...


Hello my name is Jei and I hope this helps you out.

Some touchpads have a button located above them. Usualy a small bar. This turns the pad on and off.

Otherwise you may be able to disable the touchpad in the bios. (Consult manual for specific instructions)

Another way is to place a thick piece of paper or cardboard over the touchpad area and securing it with clear tape or a nice sticker.

Alternative methods include taking the computer apart and disconnecting the touch pad, but this should only be done by someone who understands who a laptop comes apart and has the space and tools to do it properly.

The touch pad pointer is very jumpy. When it is pointed and tapped it Jumps to top bottom or all four coners. Some times while typing a text it jups on its on. The driver has been installed successfully.


Try going to control panel, mouse/touchpad properties and reduce the sensitivity of the touchpad. You may also want to disable the "Tap to Click" option if you often inadvertantly click on an item.
