Acer Aspire V5 :: TouchPad Gestures Not Working

Jul 25, 2013

I first noticed the issue with sensitivity. The mouse was really sensitive. I then noticed that the gestures don't work either. I cannot scroll using the mouse. So I went into great depths and tried to figure out the problem (but no solution).
So I performed these steps:
-Changed the pointer speed to the fastest (I didn't like the slow pointer speed). The pointer was still pretty slow.
-Decided to change the TouchPad specific drivers. I go to the ELAN tab under mouse settings. I look and see that the "Options" button is greyed out. I also noticed that it said "Standard PS/2 Mouse"I decide to find the software to change the settings and located it in C:Program FilesElantech. I open ETDAniConf.exe and decide to do a test. I uncheck the right click and left click, and some other scroll settings. No avail.
-Then I decide to uninstall and install the drivers. Did that. Nothing changed. Changing the tapping, button, scrolling options does nothing. The mouse settings still shows it as "Standard PS/2 Mouse" even though the tab says ELAN.
-I decide to take a big step and just reinstall Windows 8 altogether using Acer Recovery. Reinstalled it, still facing the same issue. Still recognized as "Standard PS/2" mouse.
-I try another way to attempt to fix the issue. I try to find the most up to date similar driver. I located on that was much newer (2013 version rather than 08.2012). Installed it, restarted computer. Still no avail. Still recognized as "Standard PS/2 Mouse".I decided to go the last route before posting the issue here. I downloaded a copy of Windows 8 Pro from Microsoft website and transferred the ISO into the bootable flash drive. I split the hard drive into a clean partition (60GB) and installed fresh Windows 8 Pro on it, without all the Acer Drivers. Of couse I was missing the network drivers so I had to go on my Desktop to download the drivers online.
- I decide to first go and download the TouchPad drivers. Downloaded them, copied on a Flash Drive, ran them on the Acer laptop. Restarted computer. Still facing the issue. 

I got the laptop for a good discount from my work (as a bonus of working there). It was a one time discount. As you noticed, I mentioned that it was recognizing it as "Standard PS/2 Mouse". That is the huge clue that tells me that the drivers are really buggy. The issue here is that the TouchPad drivers are not recognized like it is a TouchPad, but as a Mouse. A mouse that can only do right click, left click.

Acer :: Aspire V5 / TouchPad Gestures Not Working

Feb 27, 2015

I rarely use the laptop's touch pad and use a wireless USB mouse. I forgot my mouse and the touch pad wouldn't work when I started up laptop. Borrowed someone's wired USB mouse and it worked, so I ran to Walmart and picked up a $7 wired mouse.
Control Panel > Programs and Features > Elan > Unistall > Reboot = Touch pad now working.
But apparently the Elan didn't reinstall as I don't see it anymore in the Programs and Features list. I thought about downloading and installing the Elan drivers, but I don't want to "fix" something that isn't broken right now.
/edited to say *wireless* USB mouse

Dell Inspiron 11 3137 :: Update To Windows 8.1 Touchpad Gestures / Scrolling / Pointer Not Working

Jan 11, 2014

Just got a brand new laptop, Dell Inspiron 11 3137, and updated to windows 8.1. The touchpad does not work properly now; gestures/scrolling/pointer not working. I've spent over 16 hours getting windows 8.1 installed and then troubleshooting this issue. I've contacted Dell; updated the driver from Dell, even tried installing the latest driver from Synaptic. I even tried setting the Synaptic app to run under the windows 8 version. 

Touchpads have been around a long time. It's the last thing I expect not to work properly.

At this point I am ready to send the laptop back and call it quits on windows.

Dell Inspiron 5547 :: Touchpad Working Then Stopped Responding

Dec 5, 2014

I have a new Inspiron 5547 w/Windows 7, everything is working well except for the Touchpad.  Initially the touchpad was working fine, then it stopped responding, only when I attached a USB mouse could I use the laptop.  I re-installed drivers and the Touchpad worked correctly again. A few days later, the trackpad stopped working again....reinstalled drivers yet again and everything worked fine. Now for the 3rd time in 4 days the trackpad is not working. Is this a hardware or Windows 7 Issue?

Acer :: 5920g Touchpad Stopped Working

Nov 17, 2008

about 2 months ago i bought an Acer 5920G, a week or so ago suddenly the touchpad stopped working, i dont recall how it happened, i think i just booted Windows Vista as i usually do and the touchpad didnt work when i tried to click my user name so i could enter my password to logon.

I thought maybe the driver had gone bad so i rebooted and booted Windows XP( on a different partition) and in windows xp the touchpad also didnt work anymore.

Is this a hardware failure? Or are there other possibilities? I tried removing the driver and reinstalling, but it still didnt work.

Lenovo P/Y/Z Series :: Y410p Touchpad Stopped Working

Feb 12, 2012

My Y410p is about six months old. Today, while using the computer, the touchpad stopped working suddenly. 

Touchpad is enabled in mouse settings, and device manager says drivers are up to date and that the device is working.

However, the touchpad is completely unresponsive, and restarting the computer didn't do anything. Is there anything else that could be done? Or should I believe that this is hardware failure?

HP/Compaq :: Touchpad Update Gestures

Feb 11, 2009

it looks like Synaptics has added gesture support for their touchpads with just a software update. [url] The website says the software is backwards compatible with computers purchased in the last year or so. I just got my HDX18t a week ago and can't seem to get it to work.

Dell Latitude E7240 :: Touchpad Multi Finger Gestures

Nov 15, 2014

Latitude E7240 has Touchpad Alps. All works fine except settings "Flick" (Gestures -> Multi Finger Gestures).

This setting works, but after some time (random period) stops working. To fix this I need restart Apoint.exe or go to settings, deselect Flick and select it again.

My laptop's BIOS has latest version A11 and all drivers installed from web site Dell.

Also, I tried to install Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 with touchpad drivers only, but this did not solve problem.

Dell :: Studio 1747 Vs. 1749

May 4, 2010

This is for the Dell USA site as of 5/6/2010....any other countries and/or times YMMV

There are some notable differences between the 1747 and 1749 being offered via the Dell Studio 17 selector


ATI 5650
i3-350M, i5-430M, i5-520M (No i5-540M or i7-620M. No Quad Core Options)
1066 memory (Makes sense since dual core i3,i5,i7's only support up to 1066 memory)
9-Cell battery as default option
1yr Warranty default
1080P "RGBLED" panel Description/Product Code = DH1080F / 320-8968


ATI 4650
i7-720QM, i7-820QM (No dual core options at all)
1333 memory support
9-Cell battery as default option
2-yr warranty default (No 1 yr option)
1080P "B+RG" panel Description/Product Code = CH1080F / 313-8043

Blue Ray RW drives are now an option for both @ $150.00
Intel 6200/6250 options are available for both

I'm definitely curious about the panel changes along with system board revisions to see if the 1749 supports Quad Core CPUs.

Acer Aspire V3-772G :: Touchpad Stops Responding To Any Gestures Or Mouse Cursor Keeps Shaking On Screen

Sep 17, 2014

I've been having problems with this device since the day I bought it. The second day I owned it a bad pixel jumped onto the screen. After pushing it for some time physically on the surface of the screen it dissapears for another day or two.

But my biggest problem is taht sometimes touchpad simply stops responding to any gestures or mouse cursor keeps shaking on my screen. The only ting I can do is turn off the whole touchpad and wait for it to repair itself.

Also it happens that for no apparent reason my notebook behaves like as if I had been pressing CRTL button all the time, while I dont do it at all. Pressing S key alone makes it run into save options. Left clicking on the page makes it open in a new bookmark.

All for the paltry sum of 673.
This is the first lappy i have ever bought and i have done so to make space by getting rid of my ageing desktop.
Problem is i am now on the verge of buyers remorse so i am asking for a little input on my choice. I would really like the input of you guys who have been around Laptops for a while.

Dell Studio 1749 :: RAID Controller Or Not?

Apr 18, 2013

I have a Dell 1749 into which I have installed two OCZ Vertex 3 MaxIOPS SSD drives.  Boot times are pretty fast using a single, non-raid, drive but I was thinking of configuring the two drives in a RAID 0 configuration to boost speed a bit further.  I could not find anything in the bios settings that would allow the SATA controller to go to a RAID configuration.  I guess, therefore, that at least the laptop that I have does not have RAID capabilities.  Were there any Studio 1749 system boards that did indeed support RAID?
