Sony :: Poll: Problems With The TT's Touchpad?

Jun 14, 2009

There have been quite a few posts regarding the TT's touchpad. It would appear that most of the TT owners on the forums have not had an issue with it (myself included), though there are some people who have had problems -- so I thought a poll would hopefully shed light on how widespread the problem is or isn't.

Dell :: POLL: Vista Or XP

Feb 27, 2008

Since vista has come out, I have installed it three times to give it a chance, and all three times I was upset about how slow it seemed, but my new M1710 came with a license for vista ultimate and I just received the install DVD from Dell and was wondering. As of today, a clean install of vista with ALL updates and some tweaking, would it affect my FPS in games enough to notice? Would it help if I upgraded to 4gb? (3.2gb addressable)

Dell :: Poll: GPU Max Temperature

Nov 2, 2008

There was a poll for idle temps, but I am more interested in your values for max temp for the GPU.

Setting: 8 mins of running Rthdribl on a M1330; HWMonitor read-out for max. GPU temp in Celsius.

Mine would be 104C. After another 2mins the GPU clocked down, resulting in "only" 98C.

Dell :: How Long Have You Had/will You Keep Your Laptop? (POLL)

Aug 16, 2009

I'm just starting my 5th year with my Inspiron 6000. Bought it in August 2005 for just under $800 out the door.

I was planning on buying a new one but I realized that everything in that price range these days isn't really a huge improvement over what I already have, and since the thing still works, there's really no need to upgrade.

I have had to make a few fixes over the years (upgraded HD, RAM, new keyboard, screen/inverter, battery, top bezel, power jack, power adapter) but at this point it's almost a matter of pride to be able to fix something for $15 or $20 by just buying the part on eBay and maybe spending 30-60 minutes with a screwdriver.

Apr 13, 2009

Dell :: Warranty Poll On Laptops Preliminary

Mar 16, 2008

I took statistics and numerical analysis a LONG time ago in college, and I'm afraid my poll questions will not be as relevant as they could be, or could cross over from one group to another. Who out there has some expert advise? You can either post here or PM me. I will make a thread for each generation (i9300/xpsg2/m170, i9400/m1710, xps 1730, etc). Maybe having the XPS's on their own? I don't want to thin the numbers out too much. These are the poll questions I postulate:

-it's worked fine! (regardless of if you have an active warranty or not)
-some parts are broken but I don't trust dell warranty, prob. end up on ebay searching for some.
-i've returned bad parts and gotten good ones, and now it works
-the computer died and I got a replacement which was better
-the computer died and I got a replacement which was worse
-the computer died and I have yet to get a replacement confirmation (not necessarily in your hands yet)
-i'm out of warranty and SOL

Voices from others will be heard, of course. Like Galileo said, "In questions of science, the authority of a thousand is not worth the humble reasoning of a single individual."

Sony :: SZ Touchpad

Oct 1, 2009

One solution mentioned on NBR was the improved insulation - but there may be another one.

Or maybe the "mad mouse" is static and the inverted mouse is something else.

My laptop was gettig very bad with the inverted mouse - and it didn't seem to be static related.

I just did some googling - [url] this seemed promising (the detailed driver analysis for XP) - unistalling of the touchpad driver to be specfic

I ujst did it and my mouse is no longer inverted - of course I loose some functionaltiy too (scrolling etc.)
But tapping works, and clicking too and moving the mouse.

I hope I'll remember to drop back in at a later date to tell you how it works out - it the mouse no longer inverts without the Alps driver.

My SZ is a SZ71VN/X

No, the inverted mouse is back

its possible that Vaio Alps touchpad drivers are outdated.

Sony :: SR Touchpad

Jan 31, 2009

The left button of my touchpad does not work anymore! If someone has encountered a problem like this and has come up with a solution it has stopped working permanently!

Forgot to mention that the laptop I have is a VAIO SR and that I have tried a few things already to see if it would solve the problem, but no luck. Uninstalled and reinstalled the driver, switched from right-handed to left-handed, uninstall and let windows choose the driver, etc...

Sony :: Touchpad For My CS Series

Feb 19, 2010

I have a Vaio VGN-CS215J. I would like to know who manufactured the touchpad I have, but I keep getting mixed messages.

The drivers, device manager, and sony's support site all list the synaptics drivers, but when I did lsusb in Ubuntu, I got this in the list:

ID 044e:3017 Alps Electric Co., Ltd
How do I find out for sure?

Sony :: VPCZ1 Touchpad

Apr 8, 2010

I've noticed a couple of annoying traits about my touchpad, which is probably related to the driver but was wondering if anyone else has noticed either of these:

Firstly, my touchpad sensitivity region does not extend all the way to the edges, especially towards the mouse buttons and the top of the pad. This can be seen by moving the cursor upwards (or down) and it'll stop before your finger actually reaches the border of the touchpad. I've disabled edge scrolling and other enhancements like edge regions. What's interesting is that once your finger is in the "dead zone" and the cursor no longer moves up, you can still move side-side. Horizontally, the problem isn't so bad. It's a bit like the touchpad is unaware where the physical edges are. Does anyone else have this?

Secondly, if you're using your middle finger for moving the mouse and your index finger comes near the surface, the mouse cursor freezes. I assume this is because it's detecting a multitouch (if you open the pressure graph, you don't have to touch the pad, it will detect the finger just above the surface). Adjusting the sensitivity only changes how hard you need to press for the cursor to move, but it'll still detect the presence of another finger above the pad and stop the cursor. Is it possible to disable multitouch? In an older laptop, the touchpad would work with two or more fingers by just averaging their motion which was kind of pointless but also would not have this problem.

Is there anything I can do to restore this "useless" behaviour? (or perhaps just respond to the strongest pressure point?)

Sony :: News Z Touchpad

May 23, 2010

I just got a top-of-the-line maxed out Sony Z to replace my Z591U and the touchpad is driving me NUTS! About 5mm from each edge the touchpad has a dead zone in the direction perpendicular to that edge. E.g., if I am moving my finger vertically towards the top edge of the touchpad (with the cursor moving vertically up the screen), about 5mm before I reach the top edge of the touchpad, the cursor stops moving. The same thing happens with moving the finger towards the bottom of the touvhpad or towards the right edge of the touchpad. It is driving me nuts and is promting me to return the computer if I am unable to fix it. If anyone has experienced this and had been able to fix it, please let me know. I tried everything with modifying or completely removing the scroll zones without any results.

Sony :: VGN NW240F Keyboard & Touchpad

Dec 27, 2009

All of a sudden, my keyboard and touchpad stopped working under windows7

It's on Windows 7 - POST, BIOS and other out-of-windows screens are ok. Also WEB-button pre-Windows browser responds to keyboard keys properly.

Function/DISPLAY OFF keys are not working either - however, if I close the lid (W7 goes to sleep), then wake it up afterwards, function keys work fine (brightness, volume etc.) - sadly, still, the keyboard input does not.

Already tried:
- system restore
- vaio care recovery
- complete, clean reinstall of the W7 Ultimate
- removing keyboard/touchpad drivers, reinstalling, updating them

Sony :: Touchpad Sensitivity- CS-390J

Jul 14, 2009

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.

the model is a CS-390J.

Jul 13, 2009

I have VGN-Z620D running Vista, and there is a problem with the touchpad. Sometimes when the laptop wakes up from sleep, the touchpad stops responding completely. It does not happen always but still often enough to be annoying. After a restart, the touchpad works properly again.

Sony :: Touchpad Lagging NW240f

Feb 15, 2010

My husband bought me this Sony Vaio VGN-NW240F as an early VDay present. I love it with one exception, the touchpad! I notice it only acts up when the computer is idle and takes a few seconds to start working properly. My husband suggested I return it for another one but before I do that I want to see if anyone else has had this problem. Is it going to make a difference if i exchange it?

Sony :: Vaio Touchpad Button Issue!

Mar 4, 2010

I bought a Sony Vaio VGN-FW51MF about a month ago with Windows 7 and its developed a weird fault both the touchpad buttons don't work except for being able to select one of the quicklaunch icons,

no other icons respond to either buttons either single or double click, I can use the click on the touchpad itself to get around but this has only happened in the last couple of days,

I've tried reinstalling the driver, system restore and even removing the battery for 10 seconds but they still don't work and under the settings they are configured correctly

Sony :: Vaio Touchpad Stops Working

Feb 15, 2009

If anyone out there runs into an issue with the touchpad on a Sony Vaio where it suddenly stops working it may be due to static electricity. I bought a brand new VGN-NS240E (Jan 08 @ Best Buy) and while setting it up I ran into this issue and have seen many other reports on the WEB of the Sony touchpads suddenly dying. Try these steps for an easy fix:

1 - power down the unit.
2 - unplug the power adapter.
3 - remove the battery.
4 - hold down the power switch for about a minute or two.
5 - re-insert the battery.
6 - reconnect the power adapeter.
7 - power the unit on and see if the touchpad lives!

These quick and simple steps worked for me 2x. Noted on the second time it happened that I shocked the machine after walking across the carpet, that's why I said above I think its related to a static charge - bad design on this model of touch pad I suppose. I have Dell laptops and Acers never seen it before until this Sony.
