Sony vaio all in one touchscreen stopped working


XP and Vista Normal Mode Start your computer as you normally would. Click the "My Computer" icon on your desktop. Go to "C:\ Program Files\Sony\Setting Utility Series." Find and choose the "VCCPointingDevice" folder in the "Setting Utilities Series folder" to open the "Built-in Pointing Device" dialog box. Locate the "Enable" box on the "Built-in Pointing Device" dialog box. Check the box to enable the Vaio touchpad if you wish to use this device. Disable the touchpad if it is interfering with the external mouse. Uncheck the "Enable" box if you have a USB (PS/2) mouse connecting to your Vaio and wish to use that instead of the built-in touchpad. Pick "Yes, I'm Sure" when prompted to activate your choice, then close all the windows. Windows 7 Normal Mode Launch Windows as usual. Go to "Start" > "Control Panel" > "Mouse" > "Pointing Device" to open the Vaio touchpad control center. Uncheck the "Enable" box on the "Pointing Device" window when you wish to use your external mouse. Check the "Enable" box on the "Pointing Device" window when you want to use the Sony Vaio touchpad. Make sure the external mouse is not interfering with the touchpad if you have one connected. If so, unplug the mouse from your computer. Click the "OK" button at the bottom of the "Pointing Device" window. Close all other windows. XP and Vista Safe Mode Restart your computer. Press the F8 key before the Windows welcome screen appears to enter Safe Mode. Click "Start" > "Control Panel" > "Add/Remove Programs." Find and delete all software for mice and pointing devices. Restart your computer in normal Windows mode. Proceed to next step if the problem persists. Restart your computer in Safe Mode. Right click the "My Computer" icon on the desktop. Choose "Properties" on the drop-down list. Pick the "Device Manager" tab in the Properties window. Select the "Other Devices" folder and click on the "+" sign besides it. Delete all the devices under this "+" sign by clicking on the "Remove" button next to each of the items. Restart Windows in Normal Mode. Once Windows is operating, there will be a "New Hardware Wizard" pop-up that will load all the necessary drivers for the touchpad, mouse and other pointing devices. This should fix the corrupt driver for your Vaio touchpad. Windows 7 Safe Mode Reboot your computer and press the F8 key before the Windows welcome screen appears to enter Safe Mode. Go to "Start" > "Control Panel" > "Device Manager" > "Mice and other pointing devices." Click the touchpad icon. Choose the "Driver" tab and press the "Uninstall" button.

Touch screen not working


The touchpad on the Acer Aspire is built into the notebook itself, which makes the device much harder to troubleshoot or replace. While you can connect a universal serial bus mouse to the notebook if the touchpad becomes unresponsive, attaching any external device reduces the notebook's portability. Although hardware failure can cause the touchpad to stop working, most device-related problems are due to software settings or other conflicts.

Hardware Conflict
Peripheral devices connected to the Aspire can interfere with the integrated touchpad. Disconnect all of the external devices, except for the power adapter, that are connected to the Aspire; then restart the computer. Test the touchpad after booting into Windows. If the touchpad responds, a hardware device is interfering with the pointing device. Reconnect each device one by one to the notebook, testing the touchpad throughout. If the pointing device stops responding after connecting a particular device, the component is interfering with the touchpad. Go to the device manufacturer's website and look up the product model. Check the bulletin board to see if the manufacturer has posted a notice or update addressing issues with device conflicts. If no such update is available, download the latest driver for the component and install it on the computer. b> Disabled Touchpad b> The Acer Aspire 5516 comes with a preset group of keyboard combinations, called hotkeys, that are used to enable or disable devices, configure sound volume and screen brightness, and control the notebook mode. The hotkeys "Fn" and "F7" turn the touchpad on and off. If the integrated mouse is unresponsive, hold down "Fn" and press "F7"; then test the touchpad to see if the device reactivates. If the touchpad still doesn't work, open Device Manager from within the Control Panel. Expand "Mice and Other Pointing Devices," then right-click the touchpad device. If the touchpad is disabled in Device Manager, you'll see the "Enable" option in the context menu. Click it to turn the touchpad back on; then restart the computer. Corrupt Driver b> Windows Vista talks to the touchpad through a program called a device driver. The driver enables Windows Vista to "see" the touchpad and send it instructions. Once the driver communicates these instructions to the touchpad, the touchpad informs the processor that it needs to perform a task, and a specific set of code is performed. If the driver for the touchpad is outdated or corrupt, or if the driver isn't compatible with the OS -- Acer offers touchpad drivers for Windows XP and Windows 7, but these drivers won't work with Windows Vista -- the touchpad becomes unresponsive. Expand the "Mouse and Other Pointing Devices" section from within Device Manager; if Windows detects a problem with the driver, it places a yellow exclamation point or red "X" next to the device. Double-click the touchpad driver to see the error message; then look up the message on the Microsoft Support website for further assistance. b> Touchpad Settings b> Mouse Properties, accessed through the Control Panel, contains several different configuration settings that can alter how the touchpad behaves on the Aspire 5516. On the "Device Settings" tab is the option "Disable Internal Pointing Device When External USB Pointing Device Is Attached." As the option states, if an external mouse is connected to the Aspire 5516, the touchpad will stop working; disable this option if you're using an external pointing device. Clicking the "Settings" button opens the "Properties for Synaptics Touchpad" window. On this screen are the "PalmCheck" and "Touch Sensitivity" options. If PalmCheck is set too high, or Touch Sensitivity too low, the touchpad won't respond to normal touch, making the device seem unresponsive. Hope this helps.

The keyboard on my Northgate netbook is funky. Sometimes it jumps to an earlier line without any warning. Any ideas as to why this should be happening?


Sometimes that can be caused by something stuck on the key, or if you've spilled anything on the keyboard and the keys are sticky. Try removing the key with a butter knife (careful not to break the hinge) and checking it out. It also might be worth picking up some compressed air and blowing out the keyboard, it might fix your problem and it's a good thing to do every month or so.

Other than the keys being stuck, I would think either some kind of driver issue or a virus. If you have an antivirus, update it then run as full and complete of a scan as you can, and just let it run overnight. If that doesn't solve the issue, try looking on the manufacturer's website for a driver update.

Just out of curiosity, what program are you using it with? It might be related to that program as well.

As a last thought, it could be a problem with your mouse. Try cleaning off the touchpad really well with alcohol wipes (after turning the computer off). If you can disable/enable the touchpad with a button or something, you can try that as well (or plug in a USB mouse and disable the touchpad to rule that out as a possible problem).

Hi there. My entire scroll pad/finger pad for my e730 stopped working the other day. I have restarted it several times, with no help.


I think it's a driver problem. Do the following;
1. Open "Control Panel" 2. Expand the "Mice and Other Pointing Device" 3. Uninstall your Touchpad from the menu by right-clicking on it. 4. After that, right-click on "Mice and Other Pointing Device" 5. Click "Scan for Hardware Changes" and it wait for your computer to automatically ddetect your touchpad and reinstall it.
Try using the touchpad.

On my device manager i see a yellow ? under other devices / PCI device. It doesn't show me what kind of driver I need.


Hi,

Good day, the yellow question marks means that you have a device that has been detected by the computer but doesn't have a driver installed. You need to install the drivers included with your computer and devices. You can download a program on the internet that can detect all devices installed on your pc and it will update all your drivers to resolve this issue.


You can try to download this one:

I just bought a MSI Wind U100-649ca Netbook Computer on ebay and the only problem is that the touchpad is worn out. I also have an Acer Aspire 5570Z and the touchpad works perfectly. The thing is I want to...


You can't exchange touchpads, The reason for this is the ZIF line usually has a different pinout. How ever you can fix the touch pad by cleaning the contact where it slides into the motherboard and you should be good to go. You should find all the connections right under the keyboard and they should be easy to open and clean out, make sure you re-seat them completely and if that does not work make sure you have the latest drivers for your system and the touchpad installed. If non of those help you can easily find a replacement touchpad unit off ebay as well for your MSI laptop.

I can't use my Acer laptop touchpad an more.


If you are using vista than
Use a usb mouse to do this.

  1. Right click 'my computer'
  2. select ' device manager'
  3. locate you touchpad and select it and right click and choose 'update driver software'.

If you are using xp than follow steps 1 and 2 and the third step is 'unistall' than click scan for new hardware. XP should see the touchpad and update the drivers for it.

Touchpad quit working on Acer Aspire 360. Tryed Fn-F7..still didn't work


Make sure that your driver is loaded by going to Start-->Right click My Computer and choose properties. Go to the Hardware tab and click on the Device Manager button.

This will bring up a new window. Look for anything that has a yellow exclamation point or a red X. If your touchpad has either then there is a problem when it loads.

If not, it may be hardware related and you'll have to have a tech check it our or just use a usb mouse.
