Question: How to enable Chiral Scrolling on 900S ?

I seem the touch pad driver of Lenovo 900S supports only the two fingers type for a scrolling function. This is very awkward to use for me. I thnk the original Synaptics touchpad driver supports Chiral Scrolling. Why did Lenovo omit the Chiral Scrolling?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

Question: chiral scrolling

I just got an Aspire V17 Nitro, VN7-792G-797V.  THe touchpad says that it is an HID-complianttouchpad with a Microsoft driver.  But, in the Human Interface section in Device Manager, it says that there is also a Synaptics HID device.I would really like to use chiral scrolling on the touchpad, which is a feature on most Synaptics touchpads. Is it possible to do so on this touchpad, and, if so, how? Thanks

Answer:chiral scrolling

If your laptop is like most modern Acer's it will have a Synaptics 'precision' pad which unfortunately does not have its own control panel in Windows 10. You are stuck with the Windows 10 gestures.

IS there any way to get chiral scrolling on the Yoga 900?  I am using the Synaptics driver 19.0.17.3 dated 8/25/2015.  Is there a way to do a registry tweak to get this on the Yoga?  I am "addicted" to it, and it could be a deal-breaker. Thanks.

I have just bought a Lenovo Flex 2-14. Unfortunately, unlike my previous Thinkpad, this model has an Elan Smart Pad instead of a Synaptics touchpad.And one feature I really use a lot is chiral scrolling, and the Elan drivers don't seem to support this. In fact, the Elan drivers are missing a lot of features I'm used to from Synaptics. I tried installing the Thinkpad Ultra NAV driver as a workaround, but it doesn't include the chiral scrolling feature either.The system won't accept Synaptic drivers. seeing as it's not a Synaptics device, but is there some way to "hack" this? This is a huge workflow issue for me.

When I go to the Control Panel > Mouse, I get an error message that says that my laptop is not recognizing my touchpad.



It still lets me open the configure window if I hit "no," and when I go to Device Settings > Scrolling > One-Finger Scrolling, it does not let me check the "Enable Vertical Scrolling" box. When I click the box, nothing happens.



My Synaptics driver is enabled to turn on at start up, so I don't know why this problem is happening.



I think I must have disabled something in msconfig without realizing it, because one day when I turned on my laptop I just wasn't able to use vertical scrolling. Any ideas? Advice would be much appreciated! Thank you!

Answer:How do I enable touchpad vertical scrolling?

Hello moonlightxmania and welcome to Seven Forums.

If this issue just recently started you may be able to roll back your computer to a date/time prior to when it first began. See if you have a restore point that goes back that far.

System Restore

Another possibility is to see if you can update the Synaptics driver. Just as an example, my computer uses the Alps pointing device. When I go to control panel > mouse I get this:

When I click the Hardware tab and then double click on Alps pointing device I get this:

Click on the Driver tab and see if the "Update Driver" button can be clicked. (Mine is grayed out because I have the newest available driver.) If you can update the driver, do so. Please post back if your problem gets resolved.

Answer:How to enable Touchpad scrolling on a Satellite 2410

Hi,

a little hint, hope it helps you:

Click on Start -> Settings -> Control Panel -> Mouse and then after you reached the "Mouse Properties" there should be a tab named "Advanced".
Mostly there is special software from the manufacturer, and there the settings can be modified.

Otherwise, look into your "Toshiba Console" if you can find something there.

Answer:Portege Z930: How to enable TouchPad scrolling function

Hi

Of course you should be able to find the touchpad settings in control panel -> mouse -> pointing device (last tab) -> Settings button.

But this requires the installed touchpad Synaptics driver. Was this driver installed?
If not, check this Synaptics driver page:

Hello all,

I recently installed Windows 7 x64 onto my Dell Latitude D630 and found that the scrolling with the touchpad does not work at all. I have already downloaded and installed the Synaptics driver and nothing happened. I also downloaded R165804.exe directly from Dell's site and it came up with an error saying that 'the software does not work on your operating system. Click OK to exit.'

What now?

Answer:How to Enable Scrolling on Dell Latitude D630 Touchpad?

The Dell downloads do not show a touchpad driver for Vista 64 bit. Just the one you have which is listed for Vista 32 bit only.

Try installing that in a compatibility mode and see if that will help.

You can also post on the Dell laptop forum and maybe someone there will have something for you. Officially Dell does not support Win 7 on this model, although Vista drivers should work OK.

I'm trying to find out if there is a way I can enable the ability to both scroll and middle click on the Twist. On my T420 I have "scrolling smooth" enabled under trackpoint properties (this setting doesn't exist on the Twist). When this is enabled a quick click of the middle button will open a link in a new tab, but pressing the middle button and moving the trackpoint allows me to scroll as expected. On the Twist, pressing the middle button only seems to bring up the scrolling prompt, and there seems to be no way to click.

I recently acquired a Dell Latitude E4300 with Windows 10 installed. The issue is, I want to enable touchpad scrolling but cannot find a driver that works with Windows 10. The latest one is for Windows 8.1 and it will not work. Are there any alternative drivers, or something I can do. This is a huge deficit from an otherwise great machine. Any reason why Dell is not making them and/or if they could (hint hint anyone out there working for dell, this is in high demand i imagine).

Answer:Latitude E4300, Windows 10, Enable Touchpad Scrolling

The problem is that the nine year old 2008 Latitude E4300 was only validated/tested by Dell for Windows XP/Vista/7.

Because there is not a dedicated driver for it, Windows 10 would have to provide the touchpad scrolling ability. You are saying it did not. You may attempt to force the installation of this Windows 10 Dell Multi-Touch Touchpad driver. But again, we never tested it on the 2008 Latitude E4300.

Hello all.

I see from previous posts that this issue has been addressed in some way or another a few times and I have tried several of the fixes, and have had no success.

1. I have a toshiba L300 next to me(girlfriends), and this feature works fine. V annoying!!
2. I have never been able to enable the scrolling. I know where the setting are and have tried to check/uncheck the boxes/ press 'apply' then ok and the other way around.
3. I have re-installed the drivers from toshiba(synaptics).
4. I have updated the bios from tempro. Although I only registed for tempro recently, the dates on the list of updates seemed fairly old. ie. not much new stuff available anyway.

Thats where im at!
All advice would be apreciated.
Also, are Realtec drives related with the touchpad in some way??

Answer:Satellite Pro A210 touchpad synaptics cannot enable virtual scrolling.

Hello

In my opinion everything you already done is right and I?m really out of idea what you can try except most radical solution ? OS installation with recovery CD/DVD. After doing this you will have ?factory settings? again. As far as I know virtual scrolling is enabled by default and it should work after first start.

So doing this you can make the ?ultimate test? and be sure if this function works or not.

i'm using windows 7 and have installed version 16.1.6.0 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, and rebooted a million times, and nothing seems to help. i know the capability is there, but i just can't access it for some reason...

any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. it's impossible for me to get anything done like this.

thanks so much!!

Hi I bought a Yoga 900s yesterday and so far I like it. I bought the active pen and it arrived today. However there is no documentation on how to connect it. I've tried with Bluetooth, I clicked and held both buttons on the pen, and nothing works. I read on a different model that if the laptop says it has 10 point pen and touch that it would not support a pen. I can't belive that to be accurate. This is a $1300 device and the pen says it is compatible with this model. Anyone out there that can shed light on this for me?

I had problems with Bluetooth lately , causing me to reinstall the Lenovo driver frequently Is there some other way to revive the Yoga?

Hello experts, I am suddenly having a problem with my Yoga 900s not sleeping properly. I will close the lid, and the machine will stay alert (power light steady and not blinking). Then, when I try to wake it, the screen will remain blank, and I have to hard reboot. I am perplexed as to what is causing this issue. The laptop worked last night, and as far as I can tell, no updates or programs have been installed since then. Power settings are all fine. Laptop is set to sleep when lid is closed. CPU and memory usage seem fine. I've tried multiple reboots. Please let me know if you've encountered this before. I'm at my wit's end since nothing has changed since yesterday. Thanks. - Archana

Hello I recently bought a Yoga 900S and it was working fine for a day or two, but suddenly the battery symbol had an 'x' and it kept saying BATTERY NOT DETECTED. When that happened, my laptop would only stay awake for a few minutes or seconds then shut down. When I put it on charge, the 'x' was still displayed over the battery symbol but it wouldn't shut down, until a few days later when it would shut down even if it was on charge. So I didn't use my laptop for a day or two and then started using it again. For a few days, the problem was gone, but now it's back. I did recently update to Windows 10, but I don't know if that's what's causing the problem. Can someone please tell me what's wrong with my laptop? The problem is really annoying. Thanks

Hi, I have a new Lenovo Yoga 900S. Everything was working great until Windows automatically installed the anniversary update last night. Now, the battery won't charge. Thankfully, the laptop seems to be running on A/C, since the battery is not draining. But it won't charge. I've checked the energy management settings, and I've tried uninstalling the Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Control Method Battery driver. But nothing has fixed the issue. Please let me know if you've encountered this problem. Thanks.

Hi. I have a Dell Inspiron 14. 2Gb Memory Core2Duo.

I can;t scroll Sideways but I can going up and down.

Thanks in advance.

Answer:Dell Touchpad not scrolling Sideways. But scrolling Up & Down

On both my Acer aspire one netbook (synaptics) and my Lenovo notebook (alps) I need to tab twice on the lower edge of the touchpad (to gain its attention?!?) and then it will scroll. Beyond that I believe you need to take a walk on the Dell support web site. There are number of 14xx models so you need to follow the steps there to find the freshest driver for your particular model. On both of mine the newest drivers have given scrolling as well as "pinching" to re-size pages, photos etc.

I'm thinking of deleting this part and repartitioning my harddrive to increase the size of C-drive.

Hello there, On the Internet, there as photos of QWERTY keyboards only. When I received my 900s, I was surprised by the strange AZERTY (french) keyboard layout of the 900s. Specifically by the srange combined left SHIFT and < keys. It is not "sexy"and not practical (to type < ), I hope Lenovo will find a new layout for 900s successor. ?AZERTY keyboard Lenovo 900S-12ISK ?  Regards Denony

Hello everyone,
 
Thanks to Lenovo I had the opportunity to test and use the new Yoga 900S. As I also have Yoga 3 Pro I'll also compare the two.
 
Size, weight and build quality.
Yoga 900S is smaller and lighter (by 200 grams). However, they're both skinny 12.8mm thick.
The materials appear to be the same, but somehow 900S has much more metallic feel to it. It also feels more sturdy. It might be related to the smaller size of the 900S. The case on the inside has more of a leather feel to it compared to the rubbery feel in Y3P.
 


Keyboard:
 
I have mixed feelings with this one, because:
+ dedicated F~ key row - great!
+ 2 level backlight - love it too.
- much lower key travel compared to Y3P, but still comfortable enough.
? awkward placement of the right shift key. This could just be me, as I got used to Y3P's layout, which had the right shift key on the left side of the up arrow key instead of the right side.
 

(picture by Cnet)
 
Touchpad:
Slightly smaller, but still comfortable to use. I have no remarks. It does its job. It happened couple of times that the cursor jumped to the bottom right corner when I tried to click using left index finger while swiping with the right index finger. Not sure what happened, but it was so minor I'm suprised I still remember it did!
 
Screen:
The model I received has a Full HD screen (1920 x 1080). I've seen 1440p being mentioned around the net, but this particular model definitely has a FHD screen. I ... Read more

The trackpad might break me here... it's absolutely terrible if you're the kind of user that likes to use single finger click and two finger right click exclusively. You can set it up for this behaviour but it basically disables the entire bottom third of the trackpad.

Answer:Lenovo Yoga 900S - trackpad behavior

Are there tactile click locations for left and right click in the bottom corners?  Or is it totally "tap" sensing?  Mine shipped out yesterday and this was one of my concerns.  Another option that just went on sale, the ThinkPad X1 Tablet, has dedicated buttons like a traditional ThinkPad.  It's much pricier for the same hardware, though, and I like the Yoga flexibility compared to a Surface type setup.

Hello, I was told by a Lenovo sales rep two weeks ago that 4/4 was the release date for the 900s. However skeptical I called in this morning and the rep I spoke to had no idea what I was talking about. Yet another example how bad customer service is at Lenovo.  With that said, is there anybody that knows the release date for this laptop? Every review I?ve read said March. :-( By the time this laptop comes out the specs will be a lot less attractive. I am running a Yoga 2 Pro i7 with a Samsung 850 EVO so it will be hard to top.  

Answer:Lenovo Yoga 900s Release date

I spoke by chat today with a Lenovo sales rep (Mike) and he told me Lenovo didn't know at this time if it would ever be release.  When I asked why he said they already had business laptops in that range and he didn't see the need for the 900s.  After much back and forth to make sure we were talking about the same computer, he confirmed that he was talking about the 900s.   Frankly i don't think he knew what he was talking about because when I mentioned it had a 12" screen he corrected me to say it was 13.3" (which is wrong).  So go figure.

I recently updated/upgraded from windows 7 to windows 10. The default mouse settings is to scroll using two fingers. I want to go back to using one finger to scroll on the right side of my mouse pad on my laptop. I have tried the settings for the mouse including the advanced settings. I clicked on device settings and then settings underneath that, which led me to a different window. When I clicked on the scrolling portion, it gave me pinch zoom and rotating.
All other forums have told me there should be a one finger scroll and two finger scroll tab under scrolling. I don't know if this is an option for 8.1, or if I am just not finding where I should be looking, but this is an issue for me.
Thank you!

Answer:How do I change my mouse settings from two touch scrolling to one touch scrolling?

Check your laptop manufacturers website for trackpad/touchpad drivers for Windows 10.
My Thinkpad in the Mouse Settings (advanced) has a section for the trackpad and I can set this so perhaps your drivers are not up to date for your device. I know a friend had to manually download those for his Dell to make that work like he wanted.

Hello,

Could anyone tell me the advantages and disadvantages of disabling cache writing on the priming HDD? Thanks in advance

Answer:Cache Writing - Enable or not to enable?

I think the default setting is usually to enable it?

I have a dim understand of it from memory. As I recall, enabling it provides slightly faster performance but has a slight risk of data corruption in cases of a bad shutdown--like from a power outage. It can also have consequences when using RAID.

The geekiest thing to do is to enable it, but use a UPS (uninterruptible power supply) to eliminate the risk from power failure.

Me? I've always left it enabled and haven't knowingly suffered any negative consequences.
