No. It is an internal problem with the receptors undernath the pad. You can try and run the disk utility to find errors in the system and see if it picks it up. Disk utility is found in application folder.

My cursor on my HP doesn't work. don't want to use a mouse.


i'm sure that there's a button to lock the trackpad,it's near the panel.you need to press it once again to turn the panel on
I think it's right above the trackpad
or look on your laptops keyboard for a picture like trackpad press it with the function Fn button at the same time
or it should be the hardware
the trackpad cable maybe doesn't installed properly,not locked or something

Presario C714NR gr983UA#ABA ALPS touchpad does not work I have updated the BIOS and uninstalled and reinstalled the drivers but it still does not work


I had a similar issue with my ASUS. Try finding a program on your computer other than the Control Panel that controls the trackpad. For instance mine is Elan Smart-Pad. Usually working with some of the configurations in the program reinitialize the trackpad. If that doesn't work make sure that it isn't turned of due to keyboard interference (hitting a button that turns the trackpad off). Hopefully that isn't the case though.

dear sir,
kindly make sure that music files are being added in your phone memory or memory card....if yes then this is the problem usually caused by virus and sometimes it might be software failure also, which causes some of the menu not tofunction,the only solution is to flash ur phone software from the nearest nokia care,it also updates your mobile software which increases the mobile speed....

The trackpad on the 9700 does not function when pressed only in the browser


Sounds like a software issue. Download the Blackberry desktop manager and restore it to factory settings. If that doesn work, your trackpad needs replacement. The part is available on major auction websites for around $10. If you want somebody else to do it for you go to Blackberry Repair. If you want to do it yourself, here is an Blackberry 8520 Repair Guide that shows how to repair a Blackberry.

Hardware or software?


None of that has anything to do with your mouse. You might want to check your settings for your mouse under the control panel. Sounds like they're switched around. Reply with the version of Windows you have and I will walk you through checking your settings.


Other ideas:
If you use an external mouse (USB) all the time, try the trackpad and see if it works properly. If it does, then you have a bad USB mouse.

If you use the trackpad all the time, hook up a USB mouse and see if that works properly. If it does, you have a bad trackpad.

If both work the same way, then it is software related, and you'll have to figure out what's causing it to act the way it does. Just respond and I'll come up with some things to check.

My friend's touch pad on his Acer Aspire 5100 won't work. We've tried re-installing the driver but it still won't respond. Please help.


Try to clean around the edges of the trackpad with a can of compressed air, as sometimes gunk will form on the outside areas and will cause your trackpad to not work.

Trackpad won't work


Possible Operating System corrupt when originally installed. Definitely software corruption of some type. These units are usually preloaded with an image that is used over and over. Sometimes they don't install properly. Last but not least air card may be defective if it causes ame issue again.
