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?
I have a pretty good amount of knowledge behind computer software, and hardware operations. I am aware of the fact that the fan will increase speed according to increased temperature of CPU, and other components. However, is the fan supposed to periodically, turn on and off, each occurrence running at full speed for 10-20 seconds, then shut off again? How about the same question, when the laptop is physically(meaning you can feel it) hot? I don't think that this is a hardware issue. I've recently had a hard drive fail on me, and had another hard drive(same exact model hard drive) installed, and Windows 8 reinstalled. I think somewhere along the lines of the OS reinstallation process, some drivers were probably missed and this might be causing the issue. On the other hand, the fan in this laptop is the same one from the factory, which makes it 4 years old. What is the lifetime on the fans in the Inspiron N7110?
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 bought a new HP 15-r022tx Notebook PC just 15 days back . It has now started giving problems when booting. The screen goes blank during the boot the wifi lights and the other lights blink. I don't know why a brand new notebook should have this issue.
Mostly its an indication of improper RAM or Hard disk . I have an ADP. Do i go for the replacement of this piece.? Also on searching on the internet i have found this issue very common among the HP laptops. Is there any setting that i might be missing?
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'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.
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 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 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.
Everything had been fine until I did some updates, can't remember if this occurred after a video driver update or a BIOS update.
But now the display brightness maxes out at about half. When I hit Fn + up arrow, it starts off at about half and the little meter does go up (the sunshine puts on his shades), but the display brightness doesn't change at all.
how many slots of memory is there in my 5103 as I have just been given 2x 1gb slots of memory, and I was wondering if it would be worth putting one slot in my acer 5103 to go with my 2gb that I already have installed providing i only have only one slot fitted at present. ( making the total 3gb)
Dell Canada shows the base price of the E4300 has increased from about $1,920 CDN to $2,140 CDN, or just over 10%. That seems very odd to me, given the general economic situation and the number of problems Dell has had with the E4300.
I'm trying to play TrackMania on lowest settings on my acer timeline and in configuration it says i am only using 69mg of my video card. The timeline is supposed to be able to use much more than this. I can't seem to allocate more in the BIOS
I have an Acer Aspire 5735Z and i want to increase the video memory share but in BIOS i can't acces the option to increase it. I have the supervizor password and i can change every thing in BIOS exept for the video memory share.
