Dell Latitude XT3 :: Touchscreen Sensitivity Adjustment
Dec 14, 2012
Is it possible to adjust the sensitivity of the XT3 touch screen? I'm running Windows 8 on it - the stylus works fine, but if I touch it with a finger it nearly pushes the laptop over before it registers!
I recently purchased an Acer Switch 11. I noticed that I wasn't able to adjust the display contrast, using the left/right arrows and "FN" key. Through a chat session, an Acer technician recommended that I reinstall the Intel VGA Driver through Acer Recovery Management. I followed his instruction, and it worked. However, later I noticed that I could not longer adjust the contrast. I could see the indicator move up and down in the upper left-hand corner of the screen, but the contrast wouldn't changed. I once again reinstalled the Intel VGA Driver, and it corrected the problem.
After re-installing the driver a second time, I decided I would leave the tablet plugged into the keyboard. Every fifteen minutes or so, I would unplug the display to see if the contrast changed. Based on my settings, it did change as desired. I did this for several hours. Later, I decided to remove the display from the keyboard. Initially, I was still able to adjust the contrast. However, after 10 minutes or so, I no longer could make adjustments. At that point, I placed the display back into the keyboard dock. I tried to see if it being locked into the keyboard was required in order to make contrast changes. It still didn't work. I then reinstalled the Intel VGA Driver and corrected the problem. I have kept it plugged into the keyboard, and I can still make adjustments.
I've just received my XPS11 and think it's a beautiful machine... however, the one grief (everyones main grief with this unit it seems) is the keyboards sensitivity setting.
By default, when the computer starts, when you open up the Dell Keyboard (F10), the keyboard sensitivity is set to midway.... i constantly need to keep sliding it to lightest setting (makes it almost usable at this point). Where in registry this setting is kept ? or how i can permanently set it to LIGHTEST.
I have a HP Pavilion g7-2325sb running Windows 7 64 bit. but the buttons for adjusting screen brightness don't work.The buttons for audio adjustment do work without pusshing the fn button.In bios "action keys mode" is enabled.I think it's some software missing but can't find the software, neither can "HP support assistant".
My Acer 5520 came with the touchpad set so sensitive that by just by passing over icons I am opening windows that I dont want to. My sisters older Acer also has an "Alps" touchpad with Alps driver and under the tapping tab in the mouse window she has a "touch sensitivity" button that adjusts from light----to-----heavy touch and thats all I need.
After checking various computer stores that carry Acer and other brands it seems that some have this feature and some dont. Annoyingly also is the fact that no-one in the sales dept in these stores knows what I'm talking about and when I show them they say it's the first time they've encountered it. Surely if I'm spending over $1000. for a new notebook I should be able to control this. I have tried updating the driver from the Acer websight. Both the Synaptics and Alps drivers they offer don't have this control either. Some Acers however have it and they are not necessarily the upscale or newest models. So what gives?
Have a Dell 11z (1110) running w7 ultimate (x64) with all the updates, and cannot adjust the sensitivity. Problem is when typing, the slightest brush of the touchpad causes the cursor to jump. And I mean the *slightest* touch! A mere brush of atoms on the touchpad causes the cursor jump. I have read and tried many of the suggestions form Dell and Windows communities, and nothing works. There is no touchpad sensitivity - anywhere!
Here's what I've tried:
1. Hide pointer does not work. Unchecked and checked the box several times. No effect. There is no adjustment from within the "mouse properties". Trust me, it's not there.
2. Dell offers both the Elantech and Synaptics drivers. I am an experienced Synaptics user. I only want the Synaptics one because it supports standard scrolling on the trackpad, among other nice functions. The Elantech "gesture" is junk (I am surprised that Dell offers it, but that's a topic for another day). The Synaptics driver should offer a nice suite of tools, among which is a touchpad sensitivity tool: it's not there. The only capabilities that show up are "buttons". I removed and reloaded Dell Synaptics drivers several times, rebooting after the uninstall every time. Nothing but the simplest tool is available.
3. I downloaded the drivers (several in fact from various releases) from Synaptics and got no improvement. The touchpad is not adjustable.
4. In desperation I installed the Alps driver, and although it functioned ok it did not have the any capabilities beyond Synaptics.
5. I downloaded several drivers from other vendors and got the same result: no touchpad sens adjustment capability.
6. Tried several 32 bit drivers: some installed (probably because they had a hidden 64 bit install option). No change!
So bottom line: I cannot adjust the trackpad. No matter what I do.
Has anyone here had touchpad issues on their vaio laptops? There will be times when I'll be typing and the curssor just skips to a different place randomly which messes up the flow of the sentence that I'm typing. My fingers didn't even touch the touchpad and the cursor jumps.
Maybe its the heat that is exerted from my hands but the fact remains that even though I don't touch the touchpad, the cursor will still move to a different place.
I have a DELL XPSL511z. Why every time I try to type of this computer the mouse jumps everywhere? I have disabled the track pad and it doesn't work. Is there some way to decrease the key sensitivity? This is a HUGE problem with this model.
After you adjust the touchpad properties like double click speed and cursor speed is there a way to keep these settings? Everytime the computer restarts I have to go back into touchpad mouse properties and readjust everything.
My touchpad is supersensitive and if I get anywhere near it I find I have selected text or opened a link or done some other activity that I didn't want to do.A previous thread said that the sensitivity could be adjusted via the Control Panel. Well, I have it at its lowest, and it doesn't seem to act any differently. I do not want to disable the touchpad, just make it act normally.
My cursor is as spaztic as a Mexican jumping bean. It costs many seconds and numerous nerve endings just to get it to land on the scroll bar correctly. I need to calm down the touchpad's sensitivity. My notebook is an Aspire E3-111-C4GX running Win 8.1. Already turned off taps, changed cursor speed, etc. Must get to its sensitivity level wherever that is.
I have had my notebook for 10 days. The cursor jumps so badly that the computer is almost unusable for anything but reading email or web browsing. The only way I can prevent the cursor from jumping is to dsiable the touchpad by using Fn+F7. There is no sensitivity setting in the Mouse properties.
The brand new multitouch worked for 2 days while I was setting up the laptop and my files. I played with it for about an hour tonight. The X230T was running on battery, I plugged in the power cord, and the screen became totally unresponsive. As insensitive as a school bully in a bridal shower.
Per instructions at [URL] .... -- I'm running Windows 7, 64bit -- I uninstalled and reinstalled the ISD multitouch driver, 7wge69ww.exe. No go.
The only input device that now works is the mouse -- not the pen, not a finger.
Considering that my other X230 was sent to the shop last week (with a second dead motherboard in less than a year), I'm starting to wonder about Lenovo.
I own one Lenovo E430. By now he is running Windows7, fully patched and updated. My issue is related with ultra-high touching sensitivity of the TouchPad. The TouchPad can react even on cloth touch.
This is problem for me, because I use TrackPoint, I don't have external keyboard and during high utilization extra unwanted clicks lead to unpredicted events. So, my question is how can I disable the Touchpoint.
I am finding that the space key sensitivity on my new Y510P is not consistant, and that I have to really press down on the key for it to work, and despite this it does not always work. I have to go back then and correct where the spaces where not added. I tend to use the space bar with my right thumb clicking on the right 1/3 side of the space bar. When I use other keyboards including other Lenovo laptop products and this has not been a problem.
I have an Inspirion 3137 with a clean install of Windows 8. My touch screen does not work at all. So far I have:
- installed all available driver updates from Dell
- installed all available Windows updates
- updated to windows 8.1
- installed all original software from Dell backup image
I tried following troubleshooting to calibrate the touchscreen and the calibration options are not available in the control panel.
I have found that the touchscreen is not listed in the device manager under human interface devices. I found an updated chipset that claims to fix this issue but it is apparently not compatible with this computer.
My 15Z touchscreen works intermittently. It will be working just fine, then it starts to take a second to respond. Then it stops responding at all. Then it starts working again. I cannot identify any pattern to it.
i have a Dell Vostro 5470. My touch screen has not been working for more than a month. It suddenly stopped working. I have tried search for fixes, but nothing has showed up. I have the update from 06/2006 for the HID-compliant touch screen and for HID-compliant vendor-defined device.
After the latest Windows update my machine restarted to no USB mouse activity. I checked Device Manager and could see that the USB root hub was not functioning so I then proceeded to reuse Windows update and it told me there was an update available for Intel USB hub so I ran this and after another restart and some fiddling (it tried to make me install a USB keyboard driver which I had to uncheck as it kept failing and preventing the mouse driver installing) I got my mouse working again.
However I now have no touchscreen functionality) this is shown as non fuctioning in the device drivers, it also says the transciever for the mouse isn't recognised but as the mouse works I don't really care about this).
In answer to the suspected responses, yes I do have a touchscreen (or rather did have!), yes I do have the latest BIOS, I've run the Dell update and touchsceen doesn't appear as an option for device drivers, no this is 99.999% not a hardware issue unless its unbelievably coincidental with Windows Update and no it did not give me an option to rollback my drivers for any of the devices that stopped working.
Brand new laptop 3 days old - model 7737. Came with Win8 and touchscreen was working fine
Have updated to 8.1 and installed other software like office, etc and touchscreen is now not recognised. System says "no pen or touch device"
Device manager also shows an unknown USB device (device descriptor request failed) Device manager also keeps refreshing (like every few seconds) - sometimes the USB device disappears completely then comes back again as unknown.
I'm sure this must be a driver issue but have tried all those I can find.
