Acer Aspire ES1-512 :: How To Disable Tapping With Compliant Mouse Driver
Jan 17, 2015
I just bought an Acer computer, and am to the point where I am about to return it for a MAC because I cant turn off the tap to click feature. I have tried going through the control panel and messing with the mouse settings. I have tried to install the elantech driver as well as the synaptics driver. I can't get the drivers to actually work. I have contacted Microsoft and they are basically like "we don't know so go ask Acer."
I am unable to find a way to disable tap to click on touchpad for Aspire v3-572. I don't see a tab for changing this setting in Mouse settings from Control Panel or anywhere else. I tried reinstalling the Synaptics driver from Acer Recovery Management but still no luck. This is not acceptable. Am I the only one having this problem?
I'm using G62 460TU with the windows7. I used to disable/enable touchpad by double tapping the upper left corner. But now,I can't disable touchpad by tapping.Touchpad disable setting also grayed out how fix this problem
I'm on Windows 7 64 bit and the Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Control Method Battery device is causing my Aspire E5-551 to freeze. If I enable the device and I try to run my laptop on battery it freezes, but when it's disabled I can run on battery perfectly fine.
Now I don't mind having it disabled since it fixes the problem but when I disable it then I have no way of telling how much is left of my battery.
This is a brand new laptop, a little over a month old so I haven't done any damage to it. I sent it in to get fixed but when I received it back from the Acer repair center all they did was re-install windows which did actually fix the problem for about a week but the problem came back.
I have a HP Envy Touchsmart 15 Notebook. I use a USB mouse all the time. When I type I sometime drag my thumb on the touchpad which moves my curser without my noticing it. Can I disable the touchpad. My OS is 64 bit Windows 8.1 .
I've got a Dell Inspiron 1420 with XP, bought in Malaysia almost 5 years ago. It was working fine till a month ago when the keyboard and touchpad started malfunctioning. I used an external keyboard and mouse to over ride the problem but from time to time, it acts as if a button on the built in keyboard is being pressed (for instance ctrl on the laptop is being held down so when I type the letter "f" on the external keyboard, I end up opening the Search tool). I don't know the internal mechanism of this laptop, but is there a way I could disable the laptop's keyboard and touchpad, and continue functioning only through the USB external keyboard and mouse? I tried uninstalling the drivers.
I have a Yoga 2 11. It seems that all of a sudden that Lenovo Transition is not disabling the mouse and keyboard until the computer is in the full tablet mode. It used to disable these features in stand mode so when the computer is sitting on the keyboard, it's not pressing any keys. But it's not working anymore. I have uninstalled the program, re-downloaded the software from lenovo, installed it, and also checked for updates. I also tried both drivers for windows 8 and 8.1 ....
New ThinkPad T440p and the first issue I encountered is there is no option to disable the touchpad when an external mouse is detected. I don't want to do it via the bios or some other hack as I use the touchpad when it is not convenient to use an external mouse. So it should be able to do the switching as needed, this is a simple feature that other manufacturers have had for years and years.
I already upgrade the UltraNav Driver to the latest v184.108.40.206 and that didn’t present a solution. I am running Windows 7 SP1 - 64bit.
I want to disable the wireless lan from connecting to the internet every time I reboot the computer. It is driving me nuts with all the securutiy connections and I think it makes my laptop crash, because it is trying to do stuff.... Actually I have no idea, I just dont want to have to push the disable wireless lan connection every time I reboot.
I would like to push the button to connect to wireless lan if I so choose to do so.
In certain chatrooms the built in cam comes on automatically. I'd prefer to use a better external cam but I can't find an option in settings to switch to the external cam. It seems the internal cam comes on by default.
I wish to disable the touch pad on my Inspiron 1545 with Windows 8.. I have a Logitech wireless mouse. Currently both the mouse and the touch pad operate the curser. I want to only use the mouse. In Windows 7 the default was mouse only as soon as the wireless interface was installed. This is not the case with Windows 8.
I've been told to go to the Device driver and select the touch pad under Mouse and other pointers. The touch pad is not listed. I've tried disabling the PC Mouse compatible but the disable button is inactive.
I have an Acer notebook, Aspire 5735Z. Each time I turn on my computer I have to disable the touch pad using Fn plus F7. This disable function is not permanent though. Is there a way to disable the touch pad permanently?
I've just bought an Acer Aspire 5920G and the Crystal Eye webcam works perfect with MSN and so does the internal microphone. However, I've started hosting a show on an Internet radio and the sound quality from the internal mic is too low. Therefore I bought a microphone that I plugged in the appropriate jack on the laptop (next to the jack for the headphones) but when recording or broadcasting it seems that my laptop uses BOTH the external and the internal mic. Could anybody tell me how to DISABLE the internal mic and use the external instead?
I've tried to disable the Crystal Eye from the Device Manager on Windows Vista but that doesn't solve the problem. I've also tried to modify the settings from the recording devices but the LineIn is not plugged in. I'd just like to plug a mic and use that instead of the webcam's one. Any help would be really appreciated as I have to host a show in 2 days and I don't have a clue on how to solve this problem.
I am simply trying to boot from a USB or the disc drive in an Aspire E1-510p-2671.
I have set the boot priorities correctly. I have turned SecureBoot off. I have turned on the F12 boot menu.
If I turn the machine on and let it do its own thing, it loads Windows 8. If I tape F12 to go to the boot menu so I can manually select something, my only options are Windows Boot Manager, or If I have network boot enabled, I get two network boot options.
I cannot change SATA mode off of AHCI, and I cannot change boot mode off of UEFI. I have scoured Google for this issue and it seems loads of people with Acer laptops cannot boot from anything other than their HDD. Changing the UEFI option has fixed it for everyone I have seen able to switch it, but I cannot switch it. What is going on? Why am I being blocked from booting from particular devices/ports? Makes no sense.
According to the solutions I found when I googled the problem, I should be able to disable edge swipe by simply updating the synaptics drivers and turning off "edge swipe" under synpatics settings. However, there is no such setting even with the latest drivers 17.xx
According to a link given as a solution to the same problem, this page was given as a link, and its the same solution I saw on google. [URL] .....
However, I do not have the option to turn it off under settings.
As a confirmed trackpoint user, having the mouse built into the trackpad of the T431s is causing me all sort of grief, including sore wrists - but there are two problems I can't seem to diagnose.
1) When clicking the pad for left mouse click, it often does not work until I click it a few times. I notice this more when I disable the trackpad for cursor movement (which I had to do because the cursor moves when I try to click) - but its there even when that is enabled. It comes and goes. I guess there could be some foot trapped in there, but I've only had it a week and been pretty careful. I'd rather not learn to remove the keyboard on day 6.
2) The right click gets into a condition where, when browsing,a click brings up a new tab of the link I clicked on, rather than showing me the options (open in new tab, incognito window, save link, etc). If I connect a real mouse, it is normal.
I have also already tried turning off and on again the "turn off mouse pad" button that the computer has. And it's only sometimes when I boot up the computer it won't responed, then I have to turn it off and turn it back on again in order for it to work.
Just bought an Aspire ES1-511. Not my first Windows 8.1 laptop, but my first with UEIF firmware.
I've been trying to boot Driveimage from CD to do an offline backup, and guess what, it wouldnt recognise the CD as bootable. Fixed that by setting the boot type to "Legacy" in the BIOS and it boots fine.
My problem is that the mouse doesnt work after booting from the CD. Watching the behaviour of the mouse, it powers up when I press the power button, but powers off immediately the POST completes.
If booting Windows from the HD, power to USB is restored as soon as windows loads to the lock screen.
