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.
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?
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.
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.
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...
Does anyone get their touchpad fully working with XP? Even after installing Sony Synaptics driver from Sony site, mine still only works like a regular mouse and there is no option to control the tapping
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?)
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.
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.
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
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.
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?
