Question about Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook

1 Answer

Touchpad issue My touchpad woks fine most of the time - I've set the speed, sensitivity etc just how I want it. However, when I'm doing something involving fast movements, gaming for example, it has a very annoying habit of displaying a double arrow type graphic right next to the pointer which then stops it from moving momentarily. I've been into all the settings for the touchpad and I can't find out either what this arrow graphic is, or how to turn it off!!! Any help would be very gratefully received!

It is suggested 2 u that u should use your touchpad as less as possible specially not in gaming purposes. Use an USB optical mouse to resolve this problem.

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.

Touchpad too sensitive


In the Windows Control Panel, select 'Mouse'. It allows you to change the speed at which the mouse responds to the touchpad. Lower the setting until the touchpad has the desired sensitivity.

Dell xps m1330 vista home curser jumps when typing


Have you loaded your touchpad drivers? The only time I've ever seen than happen is when the touchpad drivers aren't loaded. The touch is extra sensitive if your palm(s) just barely touch the pad.

By loading the touchpad drivers, you should be all set

Touchpad not working correctly..


try blowing out all of the dust from your keyboard using a fine air blower from an air compressor making VERY sure there is no MOISTURE in the lines.

dust causes static which causes lots of problems with a computer and its parts

hope this helps

Move the slider to the desired setting (in between Light touch to Hard touch) This will adjust the Touch sensitivity of the touch pad. Now check for the issue. 3. If the issue persists, then update BIOS on your notebook. To update BIOS, go to the HP drivers download page for your notebook model and then download and install the latest available BIOS update.

How do I manage the mouse pad sensativity on my VIAO notebok computer


Hi,
You should be able to manage the touchpad (mouse pad) settings by going in to control panel --> Touchpad.(or "Dell Touchpad"). There you would find the touchpad settings where you could adjust the sensitivity for the touchpad.
Please let me know if you face issues finding the settings.
Thanks.

I have a Sony Vaio Laptop and earlier today my touchpad was working fine now it's not. How do I unlock/fix this? Thanks


Check your mouse settings in the control panel. Go Start - Control Panel - Printers and Other Hardware - Mouse and check your mouse touchpad settings. There might be something unchecked or not working. If you have adjusted these settings and it still does not work go to the Sony Supoort website and enter your laptop model, country, etc, click on find drivers, download your touchpad driver and reinstall it on your computer. This may reset your issue and will work. If this also does not work then I am sorry to say that you need a new touchpad or there could be something wrong with your mobo. Cheers.

My inspiron 1525 has a keyboard problem everytime i am typing it jumps back do you have any idea what's going on?


I've been struggling with this issue as well. I type really fast so I thought i was inadvertantly hitting the touchpad and moving the cursor. Maybe, maybe not. But today I discovered that changing one of the dafault settings for the touchpad has eliminating the jumping cursor trouble and I can type fast again without constantly checking my screen to see which line I'm actually typing in.

Here's what I did: Go to the control panel and the mouse and click on the icon for the touchpad and uncheck the touchpad setting "tap to click"

I also put my speed and sensitivity about in the mid-range. (Another suggestion that didn't work was to make my touchpad less sensitive).

Happy typing!

My touchpad is too sensitive


1. Go to the "Control Panel" and double click on the "Mouse" item.
2. Go through the tabs in the "Mouse Properties" window & find the tab where you can set up your touchpad. This differs from laptop to another since it is based on the touchpad's drivers.
3. On that tab, find the "Sensitivity" setting. Try changing this setting to lower the sensitivity of the touch pad to the degree you find acceptable.
4. Click "Apply" to apply the changes, then close the "Mouse Properties" window.
