How to adjust the sensitivity of touch on the TouchPad?
What's wrong... Please write below.
My laptop is frequently hanging then automatically restarting and my touchpad sensitivity is too high and jumping around. I need to adjust my touchpad sensitivity. also for frequent hanging.
There is no option called touchpad sensitivity in control panel(mouse or touchpad properties). I just want to reduce the touchpad sensitivity.
I have spent 6 weeks with Dell Tech support and I'm on my second XPS 15 Laptop in efforts to find a solution to adjusting the sensitivity of the tapping feature on the Synaptics touchpad (Driver V7.4 on PS/2 Port).
They even replaced the touchpad on the first XPS 15 with no effect. I can see no difference in touch sensitivity with the tapping feature between furthest most left hand setting "Light Touch" and furthest most right hand setting "Heavy Touch".
Tech support advises that I should see a noticible difference and that it must be a failure in my perception.
It is almost impossible to navigate the cursor about the screen without selecting something inadvertantly. Dell advises there are no other complaints regarding this issue.
I have checked a Dell Inspiron at Best Buy and it behaves the same way. There must be an issue.
I would like to change the sensitivity settings of my touchpad, but nothing under control panel>mouse> device settings (nor anywhere else in the mouse options) shows up to adjust sensitivity.
I am using windows 7 on a Samsung NP-R525 laptop computer which has synaptics pointing device 15.2.20 installed. Is there some sort of driver or something that would allow me to adjust the sensitivity?
There seems to be no way to adjust touch pad on dell laptop. It's real sensitive, but there isn't an icon for it in the notification taskbar, nor is there anything in the control panel under mouse.
It's very distracting because programs disappear and other programs just open up willy nilly.
I installed windows 7 ultimate <complete> on my HP dv1000 and now I can't find the software to adjust the touchpad. Scrolling with the touchpad is WAY to fast and far and needs the sensitivity toned down
I'm using windows 7 and have installed version 18.104.22.168 drivers for synaptics touchpad.
I want to enable chiral scroll motion, as well as to adjust the sensitivity for the touchpad, as the cursor keeps jumping jumping around when I type, making me keep having to correct gibberish.
I know this version of the drivers supports chiral scroll, multi-touch, and other adjustments to touchpad function, but when I pull up the device settings for the "PS/2 mouse port compatible touchpad", the only menu options it shows are "overview" and "buttons", which only contain the patent notices and button actions.
But otherwise, there is no way to change the functionality of the mouse at all. none of the usual menu options are there.
I've reinstalled the drivers, tried other versions, I know the capability is there, but I just can't access it for some reason.
I don't know how to lock and unlock touchpad. It is a cool feature though as it has always been a complaint of mine that my touchpad was too sensitive. Which is issue two: adjusting the sensitivity of my touchpad. I have an HP Pavilion with Windows 7.
I have Dell Inspiron N5110 laptop with Windows 7 Ultimate installed in it. It was working fine and once I wanted to install synaptics touchpad driver for multi-gesture feature. I tried to install twice or thrice but the installation was getting failed.
Thinking that if any other touchpad driver is already installed, I uninstalled Dell touchpad(ALPS touchpad). Consequently the sensitivity of the touch got lost. Again I tried installing synaptics but the installation was being failed.
I tried even to install the ALPS touchpad latest available to my model as well as the one given with the DVD of drivers with my laptop too, but I'd failures again.
Eventually I'm left with a dumb touch without being able to install any good touchpad driver. It's not even possible now to open a folder or any file by a double tap
I don't even know to completely remove everything related to touch and install it newly. "Is synaptics not supported in my laptop?"
It is really unproductive when I do not attach an external mouse to my Dell laptop, and, the cursor moves about like it was crazy, and, disrupts text that I would have typed quite fast, because I am a certified typist used to the QWERTY keyboard.
How do I work around this issue and reduce sensitivity of the touchpad? I have installed Synaptics TouchPad drivers,
Did a clean install of Windows 7 ultimate on a Dell 11z (x64) with all the updates. The touchpad cannot be adjusted. There is no property for any adjustment. 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.
The Dell site offers both Elan and Synaptics drivers. I am an experienced Synaptics user and want only the simgple single finger "right edge scroll" capabilities offered with the PS2 Compatible Mouse drivers - with touchpad adjustment capability because of the cursor jumping.
But I will take any touchpad adjustment - anywhere-- that will allow me to de-sensitize the touchpad.
Elan drivers allow for touchpad adjustment but not the single finger scroll, instead forcing their multi-finger "gesture" control - which I think is junk. Argh!
I have read and tried many of the suggestions form Dell and Windows communities, and nothing works.
