New Acer Aspire 5 laptop with Windows 7 on it. Up to now I've used IBM/Lenovo laptops with a track point on the keyboard, so I'm trying to figure out how the trackpad works. How to right click on the trackpad?
Yoga 11s a great computer but why should the two-finger tap to right click be unavailable? It's a commonly found gesture on Windows and Macs these days and that it's missing be default on my machine drives me crazy. Having to press down firmly to click in the bottom corner or having to click while pressing down two fingers is annoying. I've read some solutions involving drivers and registry edits but not sure what I want to undertake.
I prefer the click approach on the Apple Macbook Air, where you can click anywhere on the trackpad to get a normal (left) click. On the Yoga 13, you can click anywhere EXCEPT the lower-right side of the button, where it instead registers a right-click. I have to be aware of where on the trackpad I can click and where I can't.
Any way to turn off the right-click area and just make the entire trackpad a left-click? I have already turned off the tap-click ability, so I'm just talking about clicks where you press the surface of the trackpad down.
I recently purchased a Lenovo Y510p, and the touchpad uses the ELAN software. However, by default, it doesn't seem to allow you to use two fingers to tap for right click, nor three for middle click.
After digging into the matter, I discovered you can make some changes by installing Asus Elantech driver 188.8.131.52 to allow you to see many more options in the control panel, and I successfully changed Swapping and 3 and 4 finger touch functions.I am struggling to change the double finger tap.
I bought my Y580 about a month ago and it has been great. The only problems I've been having with it is with the touchpad. About a week ago the synaptics software on here started to shutdown at random and things like two finger scrolling and swiping from the sides would all stop working. I searched around and downloaded updated software both from synaptic's website and from lenovo driver support. The newest ones from lenovo are the only ones that don't quit at random but now the only thing that doesn't like to work still is the two finger tap to right click. Sometimes it'll work for the first ten min when I first turn the laptop on but then it'll quit. Two finger click sometimes works for right click but not always and two finger tap for right click never works any more.
I recently upgraded my Z580 to Windows 8.1 x64 from Windows 8x64
Some Windows 8.1 drivers work, for some things I had to use Windows 8 drivers
But the touchpad isn't registering a two finger click as a right click on either of the drivers. It used to work fine on Windows 8 but I have to use the button to right click which is uncomfortable. Two finger scrolling works fine, pinch zoom gesture works fine, even Windows 8 screen edge gestures work perfectly...
My laptop is ideapad z510 and os is windows 8.1All action and gestures are working in elan touchpad except two finger pad (Right Click)I searched the forum and found that the synaptic driver can fix this problem, but when I want to install it tell me that this system does not have any synaptic touchpad!I test both lastest update from Lenovo and Microsoft for touchpad driver, but didn't solve this problem!
Two finger scrolling now works on the synaptics touchpad of my dv7 I had previously attempted to use modded drivers and other apps (none of which worked), but surprisingly, synaptics seems to have enabled it all by themselves in the latest driver, which is part of scrybe.
More about scrybe: [url]
1. Download the ScrybeSetup.exe file from here (you can enter a junk email): [url]
2. Install the software (Make sure it installs both scrybe and the new driver)
3. Go to Control Panel>Mouse>Device Settings (Tab)>Highlight Synaptics Touchpad Vx.x> then click settings
4. Once you have the Touchpad settings windows open, you can change all kinds of settings:
Multifinger Gestures>Two Finger Scrolling (Click the gears next to the name)
Multifinger Gestures>Rotating (Click the gears next to the name)......
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.
Basically, friend bought the laptop and got viruses on it. I went and reformatted the hard drive and installed Windows 8.1 and have no way to activate it now as there is no license key sticker anywhere to be found.
Is there any way to activate Windows point without buying another retail copy of Windows 8? Seems ridiculous that they would move to this method of having a SLIC BIOS with an inserted key that you can't activate off of.
My laptop is brand new. I remember the first time I started it I clicked on CyberLink YouCam and the camera worked. I even took a picture with it.Since then I am trying to activate the webcam and it is not working. I wanted to Videochat on Skype but the webcam was not activated so there was no webcam option. I read that if you go on Facebook and click on "Change Profile Picture" and then "Take Picture" it activates the webcam, but not in my case.
When I start CyberLink YouCam it says that there was no webcam found and if I have to activate it if I have one. So here is my question: How do I activate the webcam? How that works. What button combination I have to press or whatever.I have the HP Envy dv7-7202eg with Windows 8.
Every since i had my Hp envy dv7 i have always used the finger detector to log in up until i updated to 8.1 last week. my finger detector is inactive whilst i seem not recall my password any means to login has proven futile... I need to work on my and other documents as well.
It flickers when i click something or open a folder. It also goes crazy when i put on a video.
Things i've done:
Updated drivers. ''Hold power button'' method.
Clues i have:
1. I remember back when i just got the laptop, it would always flicker in the exact same way when a charger was plugged in that was too weak (power out let too low message) and changing the charger always fixed it.
Now i still have the same charger (i have 3 hp and 1 dell chargers at home that fit my laptop) and none of them seems to be ''enough'' (60w x2 65w x1 and 120w x1).
2. Another funny thing is that when i uninstalled my Ati Radeon HD5850 drivers completely, there was no flickering, but obviously, i need to have that as i use this laptop strictly for games)
3. The screen refresh rate is 60hz and not possible to change,.
4. There is NO flickering on an external screen (tried two tvs, both didn't clicker a bit)
5. You might say it's a hardware problem, but i actually somehow got it to work without the flickering earlier tonight and stayed up all night playing and it didn't cause me any issues. It was working great.
6. Occasionally the PC will freeze (could that be a battery problem? since i currently am not using one as both mine are broken and i'm waiting for a new one to ship)
7. I have had 2 blue screens of death recently. One while installing ATI drivers and other i don't remember.
i have bought HP Pavilion dv6-1390ev two weeks ago it's my 1st notebook [url] very good and i love it my main problem is that the notebook comes with lots of programs and apps installed and it makes the notebook slow .. so i decided to install clean fresh windows 7 home premium it's the same version that comes with the notebook .. my problem is i can't activate windows 7 with the windows serial on the back of the notebook .. my 2nd question is, to which Owners' lounges i belong?
I've recently purchases a Lenovo ThinkPad Edge 540 and it worked just fine untill earlyer today.While i was browsing the internet, some how my touchpad developed a problem.It only registeres right click where ever i click.I've deleted the drivers, even tho they were the knewest ones, downloaded a fresh .exe and installed it after the reset and what not and it still has the same problem.
If i turn off the touchpad in the ultranav software and enable only trackapad, the buttons work like they should, the large area in the touchpad registeres as the left click and the small area in the top right is registered as the right click. Tho i can't use the touchpad for navigation.So clicking doesn't works, well neither does tapping. I can doubletap normaly, but i cannot tap and drag such as selecting a block of text.
Again, i've already tried a fresh install of ultranav drivers and it didn't work. The problem manifested itself during normal browsing, nothing was installed nor changed hardware vise. It litteraly changed in a second.how to solve it since the driver reinstall didn't work.
when i click on the wireless icon on the bottom right of my screen, it says WLAN is ON, but Bluetooth is Disabled,it says to turn it on i must do the following
"this device has been disabled in windows device manager, to enable this device, use windows device manager"
i went to the above devide manager, but cant find where the Bluetooth is! i dont have any idea how to enable it, how do i turn it on? has my new Laptop actually got Bluetooth installed so that i can send pictures from my Nokia Mobile Phone?
I have a Compaq nx6325 running Windows Vista Business 32bit and I was trying to get the AuthenTec Inc. AES2501A fingerpint reader to work. I installed the minimal install from the HP Driver page and I was wondering how I could then logon with my fingerprint? Would I have to install some extra software?
My keyboard and trackpad on my Compaq Presario CQ60 notebook are not responding and don't have any external devices to see whether this is an internal matter. Cannot restart in Safe Mode as keyboard does not respond, however it allows me to type in my password to access vista! I think I have just locked the computer, but don't know how to unlock it, various forums have specified reinstalling drivers etc. but I am unable to do this with no working keyboard and do not know how whether I have pressed a combination of keys which have caused this. I am not sure whether this is a Vista problem or a Compaq/HP problem.
I have recently been hearing a random "Click" from the hard drive, however it is not a constant click, and is not a problem that CHKDSK has picked up on, as I ran it several times and it told me the HDD was fine.
The click can be described as the sound you might hear when pushing in a CD/DVD Tray on a drive that doesn't have the motor that automatically pulls it in. so that "click" noise when it is being locked in on some laptops.
That's the noise my Hard Drive is making. Sometimes 10 times a minute, sometimes once an hour. Very random.
The laptop is a week old, however I've been informed the HDD was changed for some reason when I bought it (ebay power seller), I am following up to find out why it was changed... and with what.
Drive is a Toshiba MK6459GSX. 640gb.
I also downloaded VirtualCloneDrive to mount an iso... and it didn't seem to do this before I did that I don't think? But it also didn't happen right after I downloaded that either sooo... thinking about trying to uninstall?
I upgraded xp to win 7, like we all are going to have to do, but can't get the finger print reader to work. It does show in devices that there is one on the machine. I downloaded the drivers for Vista but they got me nowhere.
I don't think model number is make a difference but I have the HP Pavillion dv6000z.
Recently, I have a problem when right-clicking files anywhere on my notebook and when I press the Delete button. Normally, I don't have any lag when trying to delete files or trying to right click even on my desktop to access the properties. However, recently I have to wait almost about 15 seconds before I'm able to access the right-click menu on anything.
I've check my spyware and anti-virus with Spybot and Symantec Endpoint protection respectively. I've even checked with Windows Defender and all say that everything is fine. I've done a Disk Defragment and Disk Cleanup and still the problem persists. I don't have many applications running in the background and I've at wit's end. What else am I still missing?
