Acer Aspire V3-572PG :: Over Sensitive Pinch And Zoom
Dec 17, 2014
I have recently purchased Acer, Aspire V3-572PG (Aspire|V), with Windows 8.1 installed, it has a pinch and zoom screen which is driving me insane. The screen automatically grows to the size of an elephant and or reduces to a postage stamp every few minutes as I use my touchpad, browse or even breathe, I have to manually keep changing the screen size back to 100%, it is impossible to use.
I can't find the settings to edit or disable this....
I have driver version 15.0.9 on Synaptics which has the two finger scrolling, three finger flick/press. But I've seen pictures of people with three finger drag(such as top/bottom/left/right of screen to open anything) and pinch zoom. I've tried a few driver versions and can't find which one has both.
So the question is, which driver version has all that I mentioned?
I have an Acer Aspire V3-572PG (about 4 months old), and the machine shuts down randomly when on battery power. It's happened when moving it from one place to another, or with subtle shifts on my lap, and sometimes just typing triggers a shutdown. However, it doesn't happen when plugged in. Battery has been fully charged; it's not overheating; it's not the fan; it's not dust; and I've run comprehensive anti-virus scans.
In the past, it's taken anywhere from an hour or two before it shuts down. Last night it happened simply when I unplugged the thing from the wall ... so, no moving/no touching of the computer, but shutdown when removing plug from wall!!???
Does anyone know how to change to sensitivity of the touchpad. It is so sensitive that one minute I am typing and the next I am somewhere else on the page. It is totally driving me nuts. There has to be a way to change it, or is there a way to simply turn it off and I will use a USB mouse.
I have been trying to use the Live Updater and it is saying there are no updates I have installed the Acer Updater which is saying no updates and I can see that my Laptop has lots of updates from the software and drivers website.
I have a Macbook Pro late 08 2.53 GHz CPU with the 9600 GT card and 4 gigs of RAM. I have Leopard 10.5.7 installed. When zooming in on my photos in iPhoto, it is really stuttery. I am sure it's not a temperature problem because the temp is about 36 degrees Celsius. It is even stuttery when running on the high performance setting.
While typing on a browser, my screen zooms in and out periodically, and I'm sure it's because I'm accidentally touching something. How do I disable this? I've tried going into mouse/touchpad settings but there isn't any option about changing the zoom.
Why the zoom % of webpages randomly changes whilst I am surfing the internet with Mozilla on my Lenovo S10e laptop? It is very frustrating and when this happens I go down to the right hand corner of the application and select 100%. Is this a zoom problem or just the fact it is resizing the pages because of the screen size being very small. Are there any updates or software needed to overcome this problem.
I Have HP m6 Sleek Book Core i5 Laptop. I am using KMP Player to play videos. From Few Days my video is not resizing from touch screen like not zoom out nor zoom in. When i buy that laptop this functionality works fine for me. what was the issue
I bought a E520. I am not liking the touchpad on this thing. It hangs up and does not respond a lot of times.
The biggest thing that irks me is that my screen will zoom in and out when I run my finger along the touchpad or when tapping it. I know you can use the "pinch" with two fingers to zoom in and out but mine will zoom with just a tap of one finger.
How to disable the zoom feature. There must be a way in settings to turn that off. I just want the touchpad to work normally, as in move the cursor around.. thats it, nothing more.
I'm experiencing this problem especially with Internet Explorer 11. I've disabled the zoom feature inside the control panel of synaptics, but very often when I scroll with two fingers the webpage is zoomed.
The strange thing is that the zoom value inside IE doesn't change! In fact if I refresh the page, it comes back at its original zoom aspect.
I have a Dell E5540 laptop and the touchpad is working fine, except that it won't zoom or rotate. All other gestures work as they should - scrolling, three finger-gestures, ...: no problem. But no zooming or rotating.
Both options are of course enabled in the Dell Touchpad settings. I have removed the touchpad from the device manager and reinstalled it with the most recent drivers, but to no avail.
I think it's a software problem since scrolling with two fingers works without a problem?
I don't have one, but have been thinking about it & researching here. I see that it has a proprietary SSD that is probably not meant to be user serviceable. What do you do if you have sensitive data on there & need to get it repaired whether or not it's a SSD problem?
When I needed to get my Dell service I could easily remove the HDD & they accounted for that. Just googling about this now & I see they even have a policy of replacing your HDD without having to send them the faulty one at least with their business line. HP & Lenovo seem to have the same thing. They all look like an extra level of service you have to pay for though.
I remember reading a thread similar to this a while back but am unable to find it. The fellow had his laptop replaced several times due to the media buttons being too dim when pressed.
I am having the same problem. How bright are your media buttons when you press them? I can barely see them unless I'm right on top of them purposely trying to see what I've pressed.
Is there any way to adjust the brightness of these or am I out of luck? I'm not really in the mood to have the laptop replaced as university classes are about to start back up and I can't be without it.
I have a Inspiron 1545 and the touchpad is so sensitive that when I am typing, if my thumb touches the pad it usually moves the curser somewhere else on the screen and I continue typing in the middle of a different sentence.Is it possible to switch off the touchpad as I use a mouse almost 100% of the time on it?
ive being having problems with make the remote control or the touch-sensitive control to work with any program other than MCE. What im looking for is them to work within other programs like VLC, foobar(winamp/itunes). the detail here is that those programs needs to be running in background
I just received my new DELL XPS 16 from Dell by ordering online. I very much like this laptop, I even ordered it despite all its noted flaws but mine happened to ship with a flaw that now i'm not so happy about.
At first I thought my laptop had a bump where the audio controllers are but I figured that it was raised to be more accessible in the dark or something since you can feel it but after a quick google verification, it seems this is a trait that sometimes occurs when these laptops ship.
Anyway, enclosed is a relevent, high resolution pictures of my laptops raised touch sensitive strip area.
Anyways, can you disable the touch sensitive controls above the keyboard on this laptop? I have to use the F1-F10 buttons very often in an online game I play, and sometimes accidentally slide a finger over the WiFi touch sensitive button which immediately disables my internet connection so I get disconnected from my game. Very annoying if you have been playing for a while and accidentally touch that thing without being able to get to a save zone.
As for the other buttons besides the WiFi one, if I accidentally touch those, my game gets minimized and I have to wait for the HP Info Center window to load up before I can get back into my game, which by that time my character is already dead.
I looked around sites found with google and couldn't find anything. I never use the touch sensitive buttons besides the volume one (which is rarely used too and could do without if getting rid of the WiFi touch sensitive button means getting rid of all the touch sensitive buttons).
I am unable to type more than a couple of minutes without my cursor repositioning itself. The problem is inadvertent "contact" between my palm/lower thumb and the touchpad. I put contact in quotes because it's not even clear whether actual contact or mere proximity is the problem.
Brief background: I worked with Dell service and we agreed that the problem is an overly sensitive trackpad. We tried changing the TrackPad settings to no avail. They authorized a replacement trackpad which was installed by a service tech (along with a new mother board after he accidentally killed the computer while replacing the trackpad).
Result: Still no improvement.
FYI: My Touchpad settings are Touch Sensitivity 6/8; Tap to Click: On/Medium Speed; TouchCheck: Enabled/Minumum. Scroll: enabled
As you can from the above, I use the TrackPad for all my control (including selection). I have tried the most obvious solution -- turning up the TouchCheck -- and find that it renders the tap to select function useless. At this setting, it often takes 2-3 clicks to make a selection which is obviously unacceptable.
The touch sensitive eject button on my new Studio 15 laptop appears to be stuck on. When I reboot the laptop, the media control lights flash back and forth as normal. However, the CD drive immediately ejects and the eject button light stays permanently on. This all happens the second the laptop comes on - long before it boots into Vista. This makes me suspect a hardware rather than software issue.
None of the other touch sensitive media controls work.
I've tried cleaning the button, checking for dirt under and on the button and rebooting the laptop. I also rested it overnight.
Well after i reformat my pc the gray window that shows after you touch one of the five touch sensitive button doesn't show.same goes when you Fn+F5 which supposed to show WLAN and bluetooth card settings. What application or something i have to install for this?
My Inspiron 1440 laptop running on Windows 7; I have always had the problem with the cursor jumping all over the place and sometimes it just deleted the whole of document by itself. So frustrated to use. I just found that it's a known problem as it happens to many of the other models. What does Dell Support have to say about this? It takes me forever to type this message as it keeps jumping around wherever the mouse pointer is.
