SOURCE: My touchpad will not respond when I tap it

On the bottom bar by the clock, if your computer is newer there should be a small icon that controls your mouse. Simply right click on it and check the box "tap to click" or similar. Hope this helps!
Please rate me if i am helpful.
Thank you.

Cursor problem

Disabling the touchpad on a Dell Inspiron can be useful when typing for long periods of time, or using an external mouse. Bumping or tapping the touchpad while typing can cause cursor jumping and unwanted results. Use the touchpad software to enable or disable touchpad controls. Download the driver for your touchpad at the Dell Support website.

Click on the "Touchpad" icon in the task bar. If the icon doesn't appear, you can download and install the driver for the touchpad from the Dell website, or choose "Start" and "Control Panel." Choose "Device Select" on the touchpad menu, or choose "Mouse" in the "Control Panel" menu and "Device Select." Click "Disable" under "Touchpad" to turn off the touchpad, or click "Disable Touchpad/Pointing Stick When a USB Mouse is Connected."

I have accidently turned off my lower keys on the touch pad of my Dell latitude d420.Please advise.

Click Start/Control Panel andlook for the Mouse and open it to check the mouse properties. Make sureyou don't have the touchpad disabled.

Some models will allow you to toggle the touchpad on or off by clicking on thebutton that is located at the top of the touch pad in the middle.

Some models will allow you to toggle the touchpad by tapping twice in the upperleft hand corner of the touchpad.

Some models will require a keystroke to toggle the touchpad. Press andHold the ALT or FN function key located at the lower left portion of thekeyboard, then hit the key that toggles the touchpad. The correct key tohit will have the icon of a finger pointing at a square that represents thetouchpad.

Download and reinstall the touch pad drivers.Get online and got In the google search box type: "Dell Support"(without the quotes and put your manufacturer name before Support). Lookfor downloads and drivers. Enter your model number and operating system whenrequested. Download and install the Touchpad drivers.

When typing the cursor jumps to a different spot (usually to a previous sentence. I have made sure I am not touching anything other than the keys but it still happens. Turning off the keyboard each time...

Try looking for the "tap to click" setting in the Mouse settings. Click Start>Settings>Control Panel and go into Mouse settings.

If there is a "tap to click" option - try turning it off. It will make it so that when you want to click - you'll actually have to click down on the mouse button instead of just tapping the touchpad - but that might help get the system to not have a jumpy cursor.

My Hannspree SN12E23BUP212 notebook is great, but sometimes the cursor goes nuts and when I'm trying to type something, it will just go somewhere else on the page. Help!

Most times when that happens you've touched the touchpad unintentionally when you're typing and, as a result, the touchpad treat the touch as a tap and the cursor get repositioned. I'd check under Windows Control Panel (assuming that's your OS) and Mouse and look for something like tap control - you can adjust a tap to be a heavier tap instead of a really light one and that'll likely fix the annoyance.

You should be able to disable the touchpad from the CONTROL PANEL - MOUSE options.

Go to Control Panel, click Mouse, click the big pointer, click Device Select, look under Touch Pad, click the blank "dot" next to Disable, also checkmark the box next to Disable touchpad.

Click APPLY and OK, then Restart your computer if necessary.

Hello cskpuels,

It sounds like the touchpad is working ok but probably needs some setting(s) adjusted. The touchpad settings can be accessed through the windows control panel. But before going to the control panel it's useful to review the touchpad basics for single and double clicking. They are as follows:
•Tap once on the main touchpad for single click.
•Tap twice for double click.
•The lighter the touch, the better the response.
•Tapping harder will not increase the touchpad's responsiveness.

•Opening the Control Panel
The Windows Control Panel can be opened by:
Selecting *Start > Control Panel (on Windows Vista)
- OR -
Start > Run > Type 'Control' and select OK (on Windows XP)
*The Enter key may be used on the keyboard in place of touchpad clicking*

In the Control Panel, do the following:
•Select Mouse [Enter] (Brings up the touchpad properties sheet)
•Look at the Buttons tab in the touchpad properties sheet.
•Adjust the settings and test the touchpad until you get the response you desire.

If this solution is helpful please click 'YES' by 'Was this helpful?' below.

Have a great day,

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!

Acer laptop 5520 -

I remember a lot of people having this problem when the touchpad is very sensitive and your hand/arm/cloth brushes or well hoovers over it while you type. You can try to set the sensitivity of the touchpad a bit lower. Other than that may also be a virus, install a good antivirus like AVG and do a full clean, and from time to time clean the registry, but in most cases it is the too sensitivity of the touchpad.
