This just happened on my HP2730P. I always used the click on the
touchpad, plus used the right click button at the bottom. Yesterday it
just decided to stop working and went haywier...it started doing the
selecting and dragging while I was moving the mouse around and my left
click stopped working. Obviously my enable tap click was already on cuz
I used it all the time.
My solution was disabling the buttons under the "buttons" tab. Then
my mousepad tap started working again, I regained function in the
scrollbar on the mousepad again, and if I need to right click I can use
the point stick buttons right above the pad.
Does it start working when you reboot? If so, try changing the "Touchpad Sensitivity" option :)
Go to Gateways site and download the "recovery" disc info....I note that your laptop specs only has 256 MB ram which is too low to run XP. I suggest you need at least 1GB ram DDR2 whixch is the max it will handle. This will really speed it up and is relatively cheap.
I have just had this problem with an Acer laptop running on Vista Home. When I double clicked on the actual pad itself rather than the bottons, it wasn't recognising it at all. Wouldn't scroll down or select a folder etc, just if I double clicked on the actual pad. Everything else worked OK.
I tried the solutions above but they didn't work.
Turns out it's the 'Tapping' function that needs to be enabled. Go to Start > Contol Panel > Hardware > Mouse > Device Settings > Then it says devices: and lists what pad hardware you have (mine is Synaptics Touchpad V7.2.
Under the box are 3 buttons Enable, Disable and Settings, presuming yours is enabled go to Settings > Tapping > Enable Tapping. Hey Presto! :-)
1.) Try reloading the touch pad drivers, should be on the CD that came with it or check the Asus website for new ones.
2.) Have you accidently disabled it? There is a Fn key combination to do this. Try Fn+F9. Also, there is an option to automatically disable the mouse pad when a USB mouse is plugged in. And of course, you can disable it from the Device Manager.
3.) Try going into :: Control Panel, find "Mouse", select the "Device Settings" tab, select the touchpad and click the "Settings" button). Check the settings in the "Tapping" section.
