The entire system freezes and will not fuction or process unless the touchpad is being touched. Even the USB ports will not function. Example: I was attempting to download critical updates from the Window's Update site and the download process would not even proceed unless the touchpad was being presssed. If you release your finger pressure from the touchpad the system just stops and freezes, but as soon as you touch it again it just continues processing as normal. I have never seen anything like this before. Anyone have an idea why this is occuring?
If this is that serious, Well i think you should format the system, drive it with any driving tools you have. install antivirus in the system, and restart the system to see how it work........... but before doing that, backup your files

Re: System freezing when touchpad not being used.
This will be one of three things; 1- a driver glitch with the touch pad. Uninstall the drivers for the touch pad from the device manager, then reboot. The machine will find the touch pad and reinstall the drivers automatically. You might also look at Compaq's support site for any updated drivers or patches for the touch pad. 2- You may have a loose connection. Remove the keyboard, check and clean the touch pad connection/connector. 3- A faulty touch pad. If the other two don't work, then disconnect the touch pad and try using the machine with an external mouse. If this works, then the touch pad has malfunctioned and needs replacing. Ty these and let me know.

Does the screen also freeze if you are using a mouse instead of touching the screen? If the freezing still occurs, then the problem is NOT the touchscreen. If it works OK with the mouse then you may need to have the touchscreen repaired. If freezing occurs even with the mouse the cause may be one of several. Right-click on the Windows taskbar and select Task Manager. The task Manager box tells you if your processor is working very hard (any reading that continues to hover near 100% indicates some program or process is overworking your system. Task Manager also shows a list of processes and how much cpu % each process is using. Another possibility is that to run everything you want may require more RAM memory. In general, 4GB or RAM is enough, but if you're running a lot of programs/apps at the same time then you may wish to boost your total amount of RAM to 8GB or more.
right click computer, go to properties, device manager, right click on synaptics pointing device, and go to uninstall (don't worry the drivers are loaded on your hard drive) reboot the system after you remove the touchpad *plug in an external mouse for this part or just press and hold power once the system is restarted you will see the drivers reload automatically if the problem continues then you may need the touch pad replaced. if you are out of warranty with this system a replacement palmrest and touch pad can be ordered pretty cheaply off of ebay you'll just have to get a tech to put it on for you.
But if you are experiencing Jumping cursor issue then you do not need to reinstall your touchpad drivers you try installing touch freeze on your system this actually helps with the jumping cursor issues in th Lenovo G series Laptop.
Just google Touch Freeze you should see links where you can download Touch freeze for free.
The Touchpad is pressure sensitive, you can program the Touchpad's functionality. Go to Control Panel, click, to open Mouse Properties. Click the Device settings (block), select the Settings button; after the Touchpad Wizard appear! "View the (left) "Select an item" pane, and click to start the Touchpad's actions." Follow all the instructions carefully. I hope this Fix it
Hi! FaceBook is stopped working either due to server busy or browser
mal-fuction with FaceBook web such as like trojan virus which changes DNS
and apart from this, there may be chances for tracking of your id
by some one else and place routine check of register keys in system and usage of anti-virus.
Hmm give this method a try.
Turn off computer remove AC power adapter. Remove the battery and press the power button for 30 seconds continuously. This removes the static from the system. This process is called as Power drain. This works in most of the cases.
Good Luck !!!
The best course of action is to perform a driver update of the device and see if this clears things up. Since your touchpad freezes the computer, I would find a mouse to plug into the USB port and use the HP Update utility.
Since that program is known to be iffy at best, Check Windows Update and see if a touchpad driver exists as one of its updates.
And if you still encounter problems, you may want to call HP for some ideas.
When worst things comes to worst, you can attempt a factory system recovery which is used as a last resort.
Control Panel -> system -> hardware -> device manager -> find keyboards click the + to open up keyboard device, right click -> uninstall driver reboot machine and it should re-install Don't know if it will work, but thats how to do it.
