Touchpad problem

Hi. I don't know about a button to disable the touchpad on a laptop, but there is a free program that will do the same thing, so you can type away, and your arm won't move the cursor around. Try http://code.google.com/p/touchfreeze/

I have the issue that the touch screen + front camera + back camera + windows button on the screen are not working.

I tried installing the display/graphics drivers but that did not helped.

I bought this laptop from Saudi Arabia and it is still under warranty but I am out of country so i cant claim the warranty as well.

someone please sort out this issue and tell me the solution or tell me what i should do?

Help will be really appreciated.
some details about my laptop:

Toshiba Satellite U920T-B919.
windows 8.1 update 64 bit.

Thanks,

A:Satellite U920T - front/back cam + touch screen + win button doesn't work

Since you mentioned different issues with your notebook, I think that in this case its advisable to recover the notebook back to factory settings just to check if all these problems are related to system problem.

Regarding the webcam: the Windows 8 /8.1 already contains the webcam drivers and therefore additional webcam driver installation isn?t possible. Additional webcam driver does not exist simply.

From my point of few the whole description smells a little bit like a hardware problem of the upper slide part where the touchscreen is part of.
The win button as well as the both cams are located there and probably there is some lose connection between the two parts (touchscreen and keyboard)

Anyway, as I said above, its advisable to recover the notebook to factory settings just to ensure that the system isn?t the troublemaker.
In case of hardware problems, you would need to get in contact with service available in your country.

Touch pad doesn't work if you close and open the laptop, sometimes the touch pad turns off on it's own. I have checked the settings for the touch pad and for what the computer does when closing the lid, they are correct. Tried booting in safe mode and still had same results. The only way to get the touch pad to come back on is if you reboot the computer. Any ideas?

The touchscreen on my Yoga 260 isin't working. I first noticed this problem when the screen was acting wierdly. When you tap on your yoga a light circle appears and fades over time to mark or show where you tapped and when you swipe a trail or tail appears behind of where you swiped then disappears over time. So when I opened my Yoga these taps and swipes were appearing all over the screen ramdomly in a very rapid pace. So I restarted my Yoga and saw that the swipes and taps were still there. So I chose to restart the Yoga again and the taps and swipes dissapered. After that I noticed that the touchscreen became unresponsive but the computer runs as normal butthe screen is unresponsive. Before I discovered the problem I could remember dropped the computer a small height but caught it. If there's a solution to this problem I'm happy to listen! Thanks.

Hi, Please help! I updated to window 10 this evening and things seemed fine. I dowloaded a few apps and restarted the system. Whe the system came back - the cursor wouldn't leave the top of the screen - just flickering aroung the top edge. The keypad works, as do the left and right clicks and the pointing device, but I fing he pointing device imposible to use and as soon as either the touchpad is toched, or the pointing device is touched at the same time as the left and right clicks - the cursor goes straight back to the top of the screen (where the close button is) As I am sure you can understand - this is all but unworkable. I have looked to se if the driver needs updating - it doesn't. Can you help? Richard

Hello everybody.

I got an ASUS N50Vn aka X5AVseries..

On the top of the keyboard I got a "touch panel" where I can control the volume, change the computers performance and so on.

But after installing Windows 7 it doesn't work.

Anybody knows what to do? Maybe a speciel driver I need?

Thanks, Peter.

Hi Guys...I'm using the Lenovo multi touch driver for my X61T. With Windows 7 build 7000 the same driver when I wake my laptop from sleep the touch screen works. Starting with build 704x (i can't remember the exact build but it was the first leaked x64 build) when I wake the machine from sleep the touch screen doesn't work (both pen and finger touch)

I have tried to change USB settings but I haven't seen any fix. A restart of the machine means the tablet works again. Any ideas about a patch until Lenovo makes new drivers for Windows 7?

A:Touch Screen doesn't work out of sleep

There is a registry patch for better USB connectivity after waking from sleep, available from Lenovo.

Lenovo Support & downloads - Registry patch to improve USB device detection on resume from sleep for Windows Vista - Notebooks

How's the touchscreen working for you? Hope it's great! I don't like touchscreens because the screen can heat up and flicking your finger around on it can really burn.

Yesterday I reinstalled Windows 7 on my notebook PC. I had to use a Microsoft installation disk because unfortunately, serious errors resulted after I installed from the HP recovery program. Consequently the HP drivers that were installed automatically with the recovery program weren't installed on my system. I had to install several of them from the HP support site. I got everything to work except for the Touch volume control, or the Volume Scroll Zone as referred to by HP in the service guide. This is the device located just above the keyboard that increases or decreases speaker volume when you drag you finger on it. I installed the Quick Launch button driver but that only applied to the mouse and pointer touchpad. I looked at the devices listed in my startup configuration. I saw the synaptics pointing device and the HP quick launch buttons listed. So is the IDT PC audio driver.  What am I missing? Where I can I find it to activate the touch volume control?

I bought a windows 8 hp pavilion touchsmart and touch screen worked. I updated to Windows 10 and it worked, only after I did a factory restore did it not work. I've tried everything with the device driver and another factory restore and it still does not work. I sent my computer in to get it fixed while it was under warranty and it was still not fixed. I resigned to it not working and I think that hp should have solved this problem before selling its computers. So we are blaming it on Microsoft 10, but that is not the issue when it worked until I did a factory restore and attempted everything suggested. I have a 350 dollar piece of **bleep**. Plus now my Mic isn't working and there aren't any drivers for me to upgrade to, anywhere.

Screen was cracked so I replaced the screen. Now touch doesn't work.
There is no "Pen and Touch" and "Tablet PC Settings" in Control Panel. In PC info it says, "No pen or touch input is available for this display."
Touch DOES work on LINUX as I ran it from a usb drive, so it is not a hardware problem.
I have reinstalled Windows.
I have another Yoga 2 Pro and comparing Device Manager in both I see no differences.
How can I get the touch to work again?

try refreshing your PC maybe the driver is not working properly
If the touchscreen does show up on the device manager try updating the driver from there. (it will be listed under HID )
​Otherwise To refresh your PC Swipe in from the right edge of the screen, tap Settings, and then tap Change PC settings.

I have been facing this issue from the day one since I installed Windows 10 on my laptop (Dell XPS L502x).

Native Windows Applications like all browsers, office products etc. anything that is not from the Store, works fine. I can use Touch Pad scrolling with no trouble. e.g. on Internet Explorer, Chrome, MS Word, etc.

But the apps that come out of store or the apps like those which come pre-built with Windows 10 such as new Settings UI, Microsoft Edge. Touch Pad scrolling just don't work with these apps. When I perform scrolling the scroll-icon appears but doesn't scroll the content.

This issue is only with Touch Pad. External Mouse works great with scrolling on any kind of app.

Hope to find a solution here.
Thanks

PS: drivers are all good on the machine and up to date with no warning or error.

Hello, My laptop is HP Pavillion DV6875se with Windows 7 OS. It was working great before a month, but all of a sudden the following issues came up1. The power button of the laptop doesn't turn on/off the laptop. I have to use a detachable remote to turn the laptop on. I don't see blue light on the power key, once the remote turns the laptop on.2. The quick play touch sensative keys above the laptop key board have blue light in most of them. But its flickering red for volume, and no indicator on the volume increase decrease touch region. Though some have blue indicator, red lights....none of the touch sensative keys function at present.3. The laptop touch pad is unresponsive. It has its blue light, which doesn't turn red even if the touch pad is locked. I use a USB mouse as of now.4. Laptop has 3 audio jacks. One for microphone, and 2 for headphone. The external speaker doesnt have any sound, so i have to plug in earphone everytime to listen anything. In control panel --> under sound --> playback ---> i see speakers and realtek digital output ---> both show green oscillating bars when an audio is played. But the volume key in quick play tab is flickering red all the time. The laptop is fully functional. But it would be great if the problems mentioned above gets fixed. Sincerely

I have one of the strangest issues I have come across. After upgrading to 8.1 my power button doesn't always work when trying to enter sleep mode. It's how I send my computer to sleep and wake it up. If the computer is off or asleep and I press the button it works every time, but if it is on and I press it to send it to sleep mode it works probably 25% of the time.

Not sure what specs will be useful so here are the main things: custom built computer inside a "Cooler Master Storm Enforcer" case with an ASRock Z77 Extreme6 motherboard, Intel i7 3770k, and Windows 8.1 Pro w/ media center.

Also as a side issue (that has been going on since before Windows 8.1) when I right click a word in Chrome to auto correct it that only works once per text entry. If I click the new word on the context menu nothing happens.

This started happening after the following took place..

I uninstalled a trial version of Zone Alarm Suite and then installed the free Zone Alarm firewall and AVG anti-virus.

Hi everyone,

I hope you might be able to help me with my issue - I was trying to place an order in an online shop, but when I press the 'confirm order' button, it does nothing. It is a shop where I have placed several orders in the past successfully, but now already for a week I have been having this problem - the confirm button just doesn't take me anywhere.
 
I tried it from 4 different computers, in chrome, IE and mozzilla, but just NOTHING. 
 
Yesterday I placed an order with a different shop and it all worked fine, but with this particular one, the button doesn't allow me to proceed. 
I called the customer service and they just say that they cannot help me, that they have been receiving orders normally and that all is fine from their side.
 
Does anyone have any idea what this might be all about? Is it some error from my side - or are they supposed to fix this?

I have a Samsung R580 laptop and the trackpad button doesn't work quite right. The button is a single piece button. The right clicking works just fine, but when I try to left click, it doesn't always work. I'll have to press really hard to get it to work. This has only started the last couple of weeks. I know that I probably shouldn't, but I take a thin knife and stick it in the crack surrounding the button and slide it back and forth a few times. This seems to fix the button momentarily, but only for a few seconds. After which, it goes right back to hardly working. I have no idea of what's wrong. I can use a mouse, but it's much more convienient to use the trackpad button. I can also use the trackpad it's self to tap which will do the same thing as clicking the button, but I keep clicking things I don't want to. Any ideas ? I don't know that the keyboard being dirty is causing it, as every other button works perfectly.

I have Windows 8.1 Pro and a Logitech K800 Keyboard (wireless/illuminated) and I'm continuing to be frustrated by the fact that the Mute button does not work. Oddly enough, I had the same problem with a previous Windows 8.0 Pro install -- it went away when I upgraded to Windows 8.1. But the problem started again shortly afterward (maybe a week or two). I have the latest drivers and apps installed from Logitech.

After a reboot, the first time I hit the Mute key momentarily mutes the sound but then the sound returns (maybe after 1 second). After that, hitting the Mute key has no effect at all.

I have searched Google for a solution but nothing matches my problem. Oddly there are reports of all volume-related keys not working, but the Volume up and Volume down keys still work for me.

I'm wondering if anyone else is having these problems, and/or if anyone has suggestions.

A:Keyboard Mute Button Doesn't Work

There should be software for that keyboard. Some Keyboards that have extra keys work without added software, if they are a PS/2 KB. I don't have any USB KB's that have extra keys like that, the one I got is an old HP keyboard.

Check the Logitech site, see if there are drivers for that particular KB.

Hi, Just to be certain, are you referring to Windows 10 Start Menu button? If that's correct, try the following. Right click the Start Menu and select Command Prompt (Admin) and click 'Yes' to the uac prompt. In the command prompt window, type powershell and hit enter. Copy the following, paste it in to the command prompt and then hit enter. Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"} When this has completed, type exit, hit enter, then type exit and hit enter once again. Restart the notebook. Regards, DP-K

I am not sure if anyone has experienced same thing, but it is very weird to me.

I am using a Lenovo T43 laptop, and recently my both Ctrl buttons are not working properly.When I am at the desktop interface and hit the Ctrl button, my desktop will refresh. It seems that it shut down the explorer.exe and restart it.

And if I have a file explorer window opened and hit Ctrl button, the window will be closed immediately, so I can't use ctrl+c or ctrl+v to copy and paste in the file explorer. It is really annoying.

Can anyone help me on this issue? Thanks!

I installed an Windows Pro 8 to 8.1 Pro x64 on a desktop computer. Both were clean installations, no other software was installed. With Window 8.1 Pro, the start button worked for a day after all the updates, then booted the computer. Now, if I try to right
click on the Start button with the mouse; nothing happens. Thinking it was a virus, I used Windows Defender to search to the for a virus and nothing found. No other Windows updates to fix the problem! To me it just another glitch in Windows!

I updated a laptop at the same time with Windows 8 to 8.1 X64, not the Pro version. The laptop was a OEM version of Windows 8. The laptop works fine with Windows 8.1 after upgrading it.

Hi mmadyda and welcome,
 
can you tell us what browser you are using when this happens ? Or does the problem exist with all browsers.
 
What 3rd party toolbars have you got loaded? Google, Yahoo? Anything else?
 
The only time the back button doesn't seem to work is when there is an intermediate redirection page, so when you click back you are returned to
the URL that redirects to the page you were on again. If you use the little drop down arrow next to the buttons you can skip back 2 pages to work around this.
 
Hope this solves your issue

My Internet is fine. I can connect with my iPhone, and with Ubuntu OS.

It's just the button in the bottom right hand corner (the wireless signal bars) doesn't do anything after I click it on my windows laptop.. It happens every so often disallowing me from connecting to the Internet in times when I need it.

Can somebody please help me out with this issue?

Is this a desktop or laptop?

If its a laptop look for a lit blue antenna symbol either on the top near your power button or on the sides make sure its lit blue.

If its not lit look for the physical switch/button to activate it.

If its a desktop, go to your device manager and find your network adapter, then find your wireless card and uninstall it

On the top menu find and click action, then select scan for hardware changes

now click your antenna symbol in the system tray and select your wireless network and re-enter your password.

I have a Lenovo ThinkPad X41 tablet PC running Windows XP Professional. Yesterday I went to click on my Start button to shut down and it was non-responsive. No menus would open. I had to shut down via Ctrl Alt Del.

Today the Start button worked but in when I clicked on Shut Down, nothing happened. I had to again shut down via Ctrl Alt Del. This occurred 3 times.

I run Kasperksy Internet Security 7 and recently ran a Registry Mechanic scan, and believe my system to be free of adware, spyware, etc.

Any thoughts on how I might counteract this odd behavior would be greatly appreciated.

Bill

A:Windows XP Start button doesn't work

How long are you waiting after you click "shut down" before using ctrl+alt+del? Sometimes programs will be non responsive when Windows tries to shut them down and the system will stall for a bit. You might try typing "msconfig" in the run console and unchecking some of the programs that start up with your computer. I have a feeling you will find that there are allot that are active.

Here is an odd problem I can't figure out.

I bought new Audioengine A5+ speakers and set them up, everything was normal.

Then decided to purchase an Audioengine D1 DAC to bypass the motherboard sound chip. It plugs in via USB, speakers plug into it.

The sound is great, no issues. However, I have now lost the ability to Mute the sound! Pressing mute in the Windows volume control works, and the red circle appears on the taskbar. However, the sound doesn't change at all!

Volume slider works as normal, it's just the ability to Mute that doesn't function.

The D1 does not require any type of driver and installed normally by Windows. Thoughts??? This is driving me crazy.

Operating system is Windows 7 64-bit.

A:Installed DAC - now mute button doesn't work

Hi jordanfsl and Wecome to Seven Forums
Quote "Audioengine D1 DAC to bypass the motherboard sound chip. It plugs in via USB, speakers plug into it."
You are not using the computer audio subsystem therefore you will not be able to control it like you would when using onboard audio. You will have to control the audio on the external device. Check for software updates and firmware updates to the USB devce. Although you say the D1 does not need any software installed I would check there is not an update by visiting the vendors website. That may solve your issue.

Try following

1. Unplug computer's power cord from the wall (or if this is laptop the battery charger from the power).
2. (Remove laptop battery, if this is laptop).
3. Wait at least 5 minutes.
4. Replug everything back and power (and pray if you believe in god).

If this wouldn't help you damaged your motherboard (or power supply for desktop computer). If this is desktop try other power supply.

I have upgraded my old T410i with some extra RAM and an SSD. The system works great and fast. There is one problem. I have noticed that although my trackpoint and right and middle button (above trackpad) work like the should the left button (above trackpad) doesn't. I thought this has to work like the left mouse button or the left button under the trackpad but it doesn't. I have the latest bios version 1.45 installed and the latest drivers. I have also tried to detach the keyboard and attached it again. After that I tried to disable the trackpoint in the bios and enable it again. This doesn't help either. Maybe it is a defective key because all the other functions and keys do work. Is there something overlook?

WLAN usage is so simple and by ?default? it must work properly. The same principle is on all Toshiba notebooks same. When you want to use WLAN you must move WLAN switch to position ON and use FN+F8 key combination to enable WLAN card. That?s all.

What you can try is to reinstall Value added package?

Hello,

This problem came after a format.
I have also tried through human interface device access to automatic startup but still nothing.

I have installed the latest audio drivers still nothing.
I installed optical desktop drivers 3000 and still nothing.

IMPORTANT: When i open "speaker properties" and go to "levels" tab, i push the mute button on my keyboard and the mute button is highlighted on the screen but mute doesn't happen (this i think indicated that mute button works.)After a while of doing this, explorer.exe crashes-reboots and mute button works properly
But when i restart, mute button stops again to work. So i have to crash explorer.exe (like described above) to make it work again.


Any ideas appreciated.

Hi

I have a simple USB keyboard that has a Sleep, wakeup and poweron button on it.
The sleep button works fine but the others do not.
How do I enable that?

In the BIOS there's the wakeup setting, I chose the key (power button) and it still doesn't work.
I had to disable EUP (an European rule) which, if enabled, makes sure the power consumption of the powered off PC stays under 1 W, but it also eliminates most of the wakeup options to achive that low power level.

Now with that option disabled, it is now possible to enable wake up events but the power button still doesn't work.

Legacy USB keyboard setting is on. Could it be the cause?

A:Dedicated Power On button on keyboard doesn't work

What brand of keyboard is it? If it's a Logitech, it could be a driver issue. I have a similar problem with my media buttons on a Logitech keyboard, but it seems that a recent driver update has made them fail. Rolling back the driver made them work again.

Try reinstalling the driver, or rolling back to a previous driver and see if that helps the issue.

Hi all. I ask for any pointers to start looking at this if you can.

This week after some updates from MS in my W10 OS I noticed that clicking the middle button is not working at all. Normally in a browser you can open in a new tab or close a tab, etc.

I have a Microsoft wireless mobile mouse 1000. Whet I get this mouse and connected for the first time (windows 8 at the time) some driver was installed and also "Microsoft Mouse and Keyboard center" was downloaded and installed. Everything worked fine. I upgrade to W10 and no problem with this until earlier this week.

Testing the options in the Microsoft Mouse and Keyboard center, none of them works when I click the middle button. I just download and installed the version from the site. Installed in a regular fashion and in compatible mode for W8. (can you believe this is not for w10?

The scroll function works fine even the Flip scrolling direction.



Later I went to a DELL desktop (W8) and I tried the MS mouse there and works fine. Maybe I have to "tell" W10 to forget his is a MS mouse and to have the default driver. If such, how?

Also, I tried the mouse from that desktop here in windows 10 and works fine. (dell mouse without installing anything myself).

Any ideas are welcome and appreciated,

Best regards and thanks for your time

I've had this machine about about a week, so far I really like it.  Can't say yet that I love it yet, but it does what I need it to and the price is better than a tablet with the same functions and already has a keyboard.  This machine is kept in a padded case when not used in my desk drawer it does not bounce around in my briefcase etc.  
This morning the left button on the touch pad does not work.  At first glance it sort of looks like it is caught on something or stuck, the right button works great a broken switch under the button is also possible but this thing doesn't move at all I'd think a switch would still move just not contact properly inside.  I need my machine and I've made a couple of upgrades like a SSD for the stock hard drive and a 8 gig ram chip, I am not thrilled about pulling those components in order to return for warranty replacement etc. as I'm pretty sure you won't be returning the same machine I sent in.  I'm considering pulling it apart to see if it is indeed stuck so it can be pushed back out from the inside but if this is a common issue with this machine I'd like to know that...  
Can I be sent a new touch pad component, I believe I saw this is a separate board that attaches to the motherboard with a ribbon cable?  I'm not afraid of this procedure myself as I've been building desktops since the 90's and this is a really simple hardware to work on from the looks o...

This is an fyi about the final resolution of this issue.  After a lot of arguing dell sent me what was supposed to be the touchpad but what I got was only the plastic palmrest no touchpad. Then because it's a "daughter card" I got more argument about the touchpad.  I got hot enough that I opened up the back, lifted out the battery, took out the two funky looking screws and the whole pad just fell right out of the machine.  The buttons seemed fine so I screwed it back down, put the battery back in and closed it up.  It's now great, the button was indeed hung up on the edge of the plastic palmrest.  This is a very well designed inside machine, it all screws down and all connections are with plugs or ribbon cables.  I wrote back to dell and told them they need to fire their tech manual writers because they're idiots, a monkey could have done this.  Apparently it is not easy to find only the mouse pad it's generally sold with the palmrest from what I can tell.  This whole machine is so well designed I scratch my head why the cpu isn't socketed unless they decided there was no room for a socket etc, which I can see that argument.  So if your mouse pad quits try popping it out first it may just be hung up.

So I found before on my old lap top that the fn key and the f3 key together will work as a toggle (that sometimes irritatingly toggles its own self) to turn touch pad on and off.

On my new laptop I found it had a control to completely disable the touchpad which was way cool, one time, done.

Now amazingly enough the control is not locatable and the touch pad is activated and the fn f3 fix does not work either.

Anybody help figure out where the control gone to?

computer manufacturer says restore to default settings but I don't buy it there has to be another way as that will wipe out all my settings and more
Thanks if you have an idea.

You might take a look in the BIOS...Human Interface Device or something similar.

There may be a setting to disable it.

I have Vista Home Basic and got a new Internet supplier, so by cable it works but when I try to connect to a wireless network I can't do it because the link to "Connect to a network" in the Network Connections menu does not work and if I click it it just doesn't open anything. What can I do?

Hi Gang,

I'm using Firefox 2.0. Whenever I try to change the settings and then press Okay, as the final step, nothing happens. Usually the screen disappears after I press okay but not now. It just sits there and does nothing.

How can I fix this?

A:Solved: "OK" button in Firefox doesn't work

Exactly what version of FF 2.0 are you using?
Last version was 2.0.0.20
Have you thought of updating it to 3.0 version is currently at 3.0.5 this is NOT a Beta version either.

Lately, when I use "Alt + left arrow" or the back setting on my logitech MX revolution mouse, firefox doesn't seem to recognize my keystroke/click.

Instead, I have to click the blue back button on the top left of my screen.

What course of action do you suggest I do to correct this? Thanks in advance,

-Cardinal

Hi krugger4779 and welcome to Vista Forums

Can you please let us know the make and model number of your laptop as the key or key combination can vary. Without this information, the best I can suggest is that you check your manual and follow the instructions there.

Did you disable it in the BIOS? (I think F2 gets you into setup then internal pointing device set to disabled).

Good morning, 
 
Last month I had to reformat my hard drive, and lost most of my settings.
 
Now that my computer is mostly up to speed again, I have two issues I don't remember how I fixed:
 
Whenever I wake my computer up, the touchpad turns on, even if I disabled it. Before I reformatted, I was able to disable it while a USB mouse was plugged in, but since I reformatted, none of the sites or tutorials I've read match the options my computer lists.
 
Secondly, I want to get rid of the lock screen, as its completely useless. I had removed it before, but again, I can't seem to repeat how I did it last time. 
 
Any help would be great.

My friend dropped his laptop and so he's got it connected to a little TV. It's in-tact, but for some reason, the touch-keys at the top of his keyboard are blinking constantly, which result in the sound, mute, wifi and everything notices blinking every second.

Does anybody know how to disable the touch-keys? These are NOT the function keys. I really couldn't find anything through Google...
If I have to go through BIOS, could someone tell me the specific fn key to press? The screen is so bad, I couldn't tell which key to press during startup.

hi, I know there are many in the forum who have the same problem as mine. 
 
my computer was running fine last friday. I tried to start it on saturday, it says it can't startup and need to repair startup. I did run the repair but still can't startup. I tried to use system restore to earlier dates, it still can't startup. The computer has trojan virus before and I tried the anti-malware from internet to kill them. seems that it create more problem for my PC. I have some important files in the computer that I wish I have archived. 
 
wonder if any one can help. thx in advance.
