I am using T400 with XP Pro. while typing Touch pad is so sensitive that it jumps the cursor from writing one line to other. End up that you need to type all the items again and again. is there any way...


Hi,

Try this first

To do this, open Mouse Properties within the Control Panel, where on the Ultra Nav-Tab you find a button for touchpad settings. Click on this button and another window will open which has a tab for adjusting the sensitivity of the touchpad. Moving the slider to the left (towards "higher" ) greatly improved my experience with the touchpad.

For me, setting it to the second highest "line" (i.e. second line from the left) works best, but you may be able to set it even higher as I have not yet encountered any negative effects when doing so.

I would be glad if some of you could try to verify my findings, I am very much looking forward to your experiences.

Step 2
Click on the link below and follow the instructions
Touchpad Sensitivity

Also try this step below if above steps does not solve

  • 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.

The touchpad is so sensitive I can't control it


You've got it, your touching the touch pad, annoying isn't it.

You can try a couple of things,

1) Go to Start - Control panel - Mouse/Touch panel - and see if you can reduce the sensitivity or,

2) Disable your touch pad (Same route) and use an ordinary mouse instead. That's what the wife does.

How do you reduce the touch pad sensitivity in an Acer One Aspire Notebook ZG5? Thank you very much


Hi,
In order to reduce the Touchpad sensitivity you may follow the following troubleshooting steps:
1. Goto Start--->Control Panel--->Mouse and then change the mouse sensitivity accordingly. Some laptops (like HP) comes with a Synaptics program which you may find in the control panel.
2. Double click the Synaptics and in the user interface, select the Touchpad sensitivity as per your needs.

Shortage?


There is a ribbon cable between the laptop & the screen. It sounds like you have a short in that cable. If you're not good with tedius electronic repairs, it would be best to have a shop repair it.

Sensitive touch pad


Hi, click on start and control panel. go to mouse properties. Try to look for a tab that says either touch or touchpad. you can change the sensitivity settings there. however if this doesnt work, this could only mean that this is a physical problem with the toucpad. try to apply pressure on the outer side of the touchpad. if it moves, you're gonna need a replacement palmrest.
