Yoga 2 Pro Clickpad Touchpad Trackpad movement and vibrations

Question: Yoga 2 Pro Clickpad Touchpad Trackpad movement and vibrations

Just got the Yoga Pro 2 this week. I'm noticing a small movement in my clickpad (or whatever its calls) when I lightly tap on it. It feels like there is a 2 to 3 millimeter pocket of space under it before it provides resistance for the actual click motion. If you take your finger and just lightly tap your finger on the touchpad do you hear and feel a slight vibration, like it might be loose? I know it has to move downwards motion to activate the mouse click buttons, but I feel like there is movement in the pad before I get resitance for the click motion. I'm wondering if this is the design or I just got a slightly off designed one. Does it feel solid on your Yoga Pro 2?

Answer: Yoga 2 Pro Clickpad Touchpad Trackpad movement and vibrations

I had the same problem with mine. Every time I'd just lightly tap the pad in order to "click", I'd actually hear a click. Very annoying. Some odd movement under the pad that just didn't seem right. I ended up exchanging it at Best Buy (where I bought it). The best buy guy tried to claim it was normal, but didn't mind at all when I insisted that I wanted to exchange. The replacement has no issues.

I just bought a Yoga yesterday and I am having difficulty controlling my cursor movements with the Synaptics Clickpad.  The problem is that moving my finger anywhere on the pad causes the cursor to move, to include at the bottom on the right and left buttons. Because of previous systems that I have owned, I have a tendency to hover my thumb over the left click button.  Is there any way to disable pointing sensitivity at the bottom of the pad so that the buttons would operate like areas for clicking only?  I've been playing with all the settings, but haven't seen one that will let me exclude this area from pointing functionality.  Thanks.

hi wkfordjr,i'm not sure if you've already checked but there should be an option for the sensitivity under touch pad control panel.if you can't find it, please, try to update drivers from lenovo.

Hello, On my 1st gen Thinkpad Yoga 14 (20DM000VUS) running Windows 10 (64-bit) I, like many other people here, hated the "new" clickpad compared to the classic trackpad. I've followed this thread pretty carefully: https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-S-Series-ThinkPad-Yoga/Switch-ThinkPad-Yoga-Clickpad-with-new-... And decided to do it for myself. Hardware-wise, switching it out was a breeze. But since that thread really deals with the Yoga 11, the driver modifications haven't worked for me. I was able to get the classic clickpad to work (buttons and all) using the generic Synaptics driver pack available on their site, but in doing so it ruins the Lenovo tweaks, specifically the conversion to tablet mode. When I go into tablet mode, it will no longer automatically switch into tablet mode, rotate in tablet mode (after manually turning it on), or the biggest problem, disable the trackpad when in tablet mode. Has anyone been able to sucessfully make this switch or could someone help me try to make this work the way it should? I would really appreciate it!

Answer:Yoga 14 (1st gen) Clickpad/Trackpad Replacement

Hi. I have a TP Yoga 14 - 20DM008UUS. It came originally with the "Touchpad with clickable buttons" and all works correctly with you switch to tablet mode, tent mode, etc.  But mine does not uses a Synaptics touchpad, it is an ALPs one.  Can you share the FRU of the new Touchpad (Keyboard?) you installed on you TP 14 (1st gen) ? Did you check other model "Maintenance manual" to find the FRU? It can be interesting if you can try the drivers of the touchpad of the machine model from where you took the FRU. This is a very interesting MOD for your TP 14, it can be nice if you can also post pictures of you work !! Regards

Hi everyoneThe new ThinkPad Yoga 12 seems to have the same dimensions as the original ThinkPad Yoga. Does anyone know if it's possible to install the new TrackPad with the buttons from the TPY 12 in the old model? Or will there be hardware/driver problems?I'm sure many have the same question for their machines, for example the T440, how about those?Thanks!

Hello lovely people. I have a Yoga 2 13, recently upgraded to windows 10 with limited difficulty. Within the last couple fo days (not notably related to any update) I have completely lost all movement from the touchpad. The physical click seems to work fine. I've done roll back and fully de-installed and re-installed all touchpad drivers. I'm starting to suspect that it's something more mechanical than software related, but I did want to check whether anyone else had experienced this. thank you!

The trackpad and touchpad of my Yoga stops working: the cursor freezes and after a while disappears from screen. Once the cursor is gone it does not appear again, even after a clean reboot. I have tried to enable it via the Control Panel Mouse settings or Input section of ?Lenovo Settings? application but had no success.
The problem has happened several times so far, always after the laptop sleeps due to inactivity. The only way I have found so far to bring the trackpad and touchpad back is by going to the BIOS settings and restoring the default configurations (I have never changed the BIOS settings on this PC, so I can?t figure out why this solves momentarily the problem).
 
Any ideas on why this problem is happening, and how to solve it without messing with the BIOS settings?
 
This is becoming really annoying, it has happened three times since yesterday (10/23/15).
 
My BIOS version when this first happened was 1.26 (GQET46WW), my current BIOS version is 1.27 (GQET47WW). My laptop runs Windows 10 Pro (automatically updated from the Windows 8.1 version delivered with the laptop).

When scrolling with the index finger on my right hand I will regularly hover over and lightly touch the left button with my left index finger in anticipation of the link/button/text box etc that I am about to click on. I have always done this an never encoutered any issues on the numerous laptops I have owned and used in the past). When I do this on my newly axquired Lenovo Yoga 900 it causes the mouse pointer to lag momentarily. I have updated drivers (v19.0.17.57), I have turned off ALL Multi-Finger options (2-finger, 3-finger and 4-finger) and reduced Palm Tracking to the minimum. Is this behavior isolated to me, or are other experiencing the same behavior? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi,

Is there anybody who has this model and who is able to tell me what is his experience about that?

thanks!

Answer:Satellite A660-133 - Vibrations when I use the keyboard or touchpad

Hi davmat,

I?m not Satellite A660 owner but friend of me has one. He never told me about such a problem expect that?s a great notebook with powerful hardware and he love the design. I must agree with him that?s a great notebook from Toshiba!

Anyway, if you think it?s not normal you should contact an authorized service provider in your country. The guys can check this problem and maybe you need a new keyboard but this can be exchanged under warranty.

You can find a list of ASPs here:

When moving the cursor with the trackpad, i've noticed that slow movement will usually result in a jump of cursor of a number of pixels (around 40pixels/8-10mm cursor movement)a search online is mostly useless apart from an arch linux forum where atleast 4 others are also reporting the same issue with jumping with slow finger movement. I've noticed this problem on both linux (Fedora22) and windows OS (win10, via inplace upgrade from lenovo win8.1 factory image), so it's not OS specific - definately a hardware/firmware issue. aside from a warranty claim (which i'm doubtful would actually fix the issue), what else could it be - anyone else experiencing the issue?

Good evening  I've been happy with my Yoga 900, however the clickpad over the last week has developed a mind of its own. It's been clicking on things when I've been trying to just move the cursor, not clicking on things when I've wanted it to click, scrolling for short distances when using two finger scrolling then giving up part way through despite having two fingers on the clickpad or just simply not working at all, and oddly the gestures I could never get to work (e.g. browser back and forward) all of sudden started working even though I didn't actually have three fingers on the touchpad at the time, nor did I want to go back three pages. I'm using the latest Synaptics driver from Lenovo, have disabled the more annoying personality quirks (the three finger gesture was very quickly disabled) to try and reduce the annoyance factor, have turned the sensitivty down as far as I can go without needing to press forcefully to use the clickpad generally, my fingers are clean, the clickpad is clean (with a slightly damp cloth) and still the quirks persist. Has anyone had any similar issues or have any possible solutions? Thanks

  Hi all, The touchpad on the computer seems to be loose. It is an 11e Yoga 3rd Gen (20GE) The whole touchpad has vertical movement up and down, that is completely separate from the click portion at the bottom of the touchpad (the downward movement seen in the video below does not activate the click. It moves down further than that to activate the click as it should.) It seems almost like it wasn't tightened down completely. That makes it a little hard to slide your finger across it and navigate when it's moving around on you. Does this touchpad have an adjustment to tighten it down? I have uploaded a clip to Youtube here:   Thanks for any help.

I have an annoying problem with the touchpad sensitivity on my new work notebook. When holding down the left or right mouse button underneath the touchpad the sensitivity of the touchpad greatly increases with about 100%. When the buttons are pressed I can move the cursor about twice the distance compared to normal. I want the sensitivity to stay the same, regardless if I'm dragging something/selecting multiple items or just moving the cursor as normal. File management becomes a pain when it's like this. - My previous notebook, also from HP, did not do this, so this is something new with this computer.- No acceleration or "enhance pointer precision" is enabled anywhere.- If I connect an external mouse, it does not behave this way.- I also noticed that if I double tap and hold and drag with the touchpad the sensitivity is unchanged.- Likewise, clicking an external mouse button, but dragging with the touchpad is unaffected.- And also the mouse button above the touchpad (belonging to the TouchStyk) is also not causing this for the touchpad.- The touchpad left and right buttons don't magically increase the sensitivity of the external mouse either. It's ONLY the touchpad's physical left and right mouse button that raise the sensitivity of ONLY the touchpad when depressed. I don't see any setting for this. On the Synaptics TouchPad tab in Mouse Properties there's a button to "Microsoft Mouse and touchpad", but there's no option about this. In any case, this... Read more

hi ankitvasa,
 
Welcome to the Forums.
 
AFAIK, there's an option where you can configure the touch regions under the touchpad settings. You can also control the sensitivity of the touch regions by adjusting the Palm Tracking and Touch Sensivity or by using a software called Touchfreeze.

If you don't have the options in the picture above, check first the model of the touchpad that's installed on your PC by installing AIDA 64 Extreme Edition. Run the app and look under Windows Devices.
 
Sample Synaptics Touchpad
Sample ELAN Touchpad
 
Aftering verifying the Touchpad device, download the appropriate driver from this driver list (reboot if necessary) and observe.

On every P50 I've tried and across all Windows versions, the cursor does not move smoothly when making precision (i.e. slow or very slight) movements. Try slowly moving a finger across the trackpad, or gently rolling a finger back and forth--the cursor will skip about 40 or 50 pixels (!) before coming to rest. The issue is trivial to reproduce; in fact, there's no need to even specifically try to reproduce it, as it happens hundreds of times a day during normal use. It's bad enough dealing with it while trying to do mundane activities like browsing, but even worse is that it effectively makes using things like Photoshop outright impossible. Since there have been fixes for other mouse/trackpad/touchstick driver bugs, can we please get a fix for this as well?

My touchpad is behaving very strangely. I can click (by pressing not tapping), double click, scroll and make 3 finger gestures alright. I can't move the pointer. I put my finger on the touchpad and drag it but the pointer doesn't move. Single/double tap also doesn't do anything. Trackpad is enabled in bios. I have updated, uninstalled, reinstalled the driver multiple times (both from Windows device manager and Lenovo website). I have restarted the laptop multiple times. I have booted up in safe mode. Nothing works. I can't get the pointer to move. This started happening after the Windows 10 Creators Update. It used to happen once every few days and a few reboots would fix it. Now, its been almost a week but the problem isn't going away. In the mouse properties, some options are greyed out (including the Touchpad) but I see no explanation why they are disabled and I can't find a way to enable them. pics I also booted up my laptop from a Ubuntu live USB and the touchpad worked perfectly so the problem is with Windows, not with the hardware.

Hi,
when connected to the power supply and using the touch pad the pointer jumps about erratically (only when touching the pad) even if I hold my finger still.

BUT if I keep in contact with anything connected to the laptops 'ground' such as the VGA connector then everything works correctly.

Also if the laptop is sitting on my lap this also corrects the issue (I experimented by placing it on a damp towel to simulate the shielding effect of my body and it had the same effect i.e. no jittery pointer).

Lastly when running on battery there is no problem.

I have tried upgrading and downgrading the drivers as well as all sorts of permutations in the settings so I'm sure its a hardware thing. Dismantled the system to take a look at the touch pad connections but nothing stood out.

Does this problem sound familiar to anyone or do you have any ideas what tests I could do to pinpoint the problem further?

Thanks,
Shane

Answer:Satellite A200 - Random touchpad movement when conected to power supply

hi doctus / shane,

sound to me like a wire isnt properly inserted...
the flat cable from the touchpad has to be refitted.
on the touchpad *and* the mainboard - just take it out and reinsert it.
be careful the connectors are tricky and very sensitve - they break fast as hell!
maybe the flat cable is broke...

if unsure what to do ask a servicepartner for assistance....

i dont think that this issue is a hardware failure.... but what do i know... ;-)

The cursor keeps randomly repositioning within the text while I am typing, making it very difficult to use the laptop for work.  This is a major problem with the device and I am not sure if a driver issue or hardware.  I saw a post about a new alps driver from 2011 but current product has a synaptics touchpad in it.  any help?  

Answer:brand new yoga 13, random cursor movement while typing.

hi harveyb,
 
Welcome to the Lenovo Forums.
 
The erratic movement of the mouse cursor might be due to the high sensitivity of the touchpad.
 
Can you try to:
1. Go to the Control Panel (large icon view) > Mouse > Device Settings > Settings
2. Under the Synaptics Settings, go to Pointing > Sensitivity > Palmcheck and set the palm sensitivity near the maximum settings and test.
 Spoiler (Highlight to read)
 
Let me know your findings,

Hi 1) I just bought the Y580 online. The trackpad is terrible. - How do I make the right-side and bottom touch scrolling to work ? just like a normal laptop ?? - I changed the sensitivity settings and inspite of that the motion of the cursor is not uniform. When the right side of my finger is contact with it, the cursor stops moving a little and it is okay with the center of my finger.Do any of you experience this? If not, I need to get this looked into. I don't think the problem is with the software, it's just the material with which the trackpad is made, does not have a right coefficient of friction. - The two finger scrolling does not start. When I do the two finger scroll, the cursor change is seen almost 10 seconds later and even after that, it is almost impossible to scroll through my pages. Is that the case for everyone?  - The left/right click on the trackpad is noisy 2) Made the mistake a buying a lower resolution screen.How do I return this thing? When I talked to sales they are asking for a 15% "restocking" fee. That is terrible as well. I never should have gone with Lenovo.  

Answer:Y580 Trackpad (or Touchpad) Help

- Not sure if there is a right side and bottom touch scrolling, will test it tonight- not uniform? Means if you place your finger on the right side of the touchpad then move to the center compared to the center move to the left, the distance is different?- 2 finger scrolling not tested, will check it tonight- I am not sure how to help you with the touchpad being noisy when clicking. Do note that this is a 1 piece touchpad compared to the conventional touchpad with 2 buttons below which is different. Use double tap on touchpad to do a left click but right click is unavoidable. - low res screen... can check with sales if you can top-up for upgrade?hope this helps.

Today my x201 has lost all trackpad and touch pad function.   Hard disk constantly running.   No restore points listed to help remove the problem.   Everything works okay in Safe Mode.   Rebooting several times has not helped. Could this be related to the Microsoft Bad KB.......69 update? I have not installed any new software recently. I can only use the pen to access menus.    How can I remove recent KB installations using just the pen? Hope someone can help me soon Update:   I have managed to remove the bad MS update but to improvement.   Next I added a new user (also set as administrator) and the trackpad and touch pad function is now working normally but only with the new user account. Would someone tell me if I can remove my own Administrator Account and what effect this will have,  i.e. what data might I lose?   Can I save data and reinstall it to a new account?

Answer:Trackpad and touchpad not working

Hi Beemer,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
I?m sorry to hear that trackpad and touchpad is not working properly in your Lenovo ThinkPad X201.
 
Since the devices work fine in safe mode, probably a corrupted driver is causing the issue. Go to control panel -> Device manager, uninstall the drivers listed under Mice and other pointing devices. Restart the system and let Windows install the generic drivers for the device. Check if the trackpad and touchpad works fine now. Later, you may download the drivers from Lenovo Support page and install them. If you have any difficulties in finding the driver, please share the MTM number of your device.

Hello everyone,  I am having to send my Lenovo ThinkPad P50 to the service depot to have the touchpad and perhaps more replaced due to the trackpad not performing properly. The right click works intermittently both on the bottom and top right click button. The scroll feature at times stops working and the left click usually starts performing right click operations randomly. I knew it wasn't the driver after uninstalling and reinstalling it a few times including the keyboard driver. Has anyone here ever had to have their touchpad replaced?

Answer:Replacing Touchpad/Trackpad

Hi RegEdit1 , 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
As the touchpad and buttons may have erratic behavior but not when using a USB mouse, then best that you have your warranty coverage work for you as the entire upper case that includes the touchpad mechanism to be checked.
 
Reviewing the hardware disassembly guide would take several screws needed to be worked at for the repair.
Sending it over could be a good option in terms of hardware issue for full functionality check.
 
Regards

I have a Lenovo x220tablet, alltough it took some time to adjust. But now i'm happy with it. But there's something wrong with the trackpad. I allready taught myself to use it without the pysical buttons in the bottom, and now make fully use of al that synaptics has to offer.But sometimes I have to use the buttons, because it comes handy when dragging something or whatever. At first, I did not like the buttons, but the where usable, but with time, they got worse. It is very hard to explain this for me in English, but, thats why I made a little movie which is linked below. Anyone suggestions what to do about it?Of course I've used google, and found many many topics about the trackpad, but that were mostly driver problems. http://youtu.be/a4XyxWopbt8 The click is so loud, it seems to get stuck somewhere and I have to push very hard. Almost like there's something stuck, like sand between it. But it's perfectly clean.Any advise (besides; do not use it) is welcome. And apologies for my English

Answer:X220t trackpad/touchpad

Hi, timpel_800
 
From the looks, sounds, and general functionality of the TrackPad, I would guess that there is a hardware issue of sorts. In the video, you say that the click function works, but only if you do it twice, correct? And the noise was far louder than a TrackPad is supposed to be, I think. With all this in mind, I would contact support and see if you can get this repaired. The number for support in the Netherlands is +31 (0)20 513 3939 and is open Monday through Friday 9am-5pm.
 
Best of luck,
Adam

I dunno if it's a touchpad or a trackpad I have but there was a program along with it called like Apoint or something that would run and allowed me to change the settings on the touchpad. I have looked and can find no other way of accessing the touchpad settings. Well the last time I remember it working was before I updated Windows Vista, well now the program no longer runs I had it set to disable the touchpad when an external mouse was detected and it no longer does that. I went into its folder located at C:\Program Files\DellTpad\Apoint.exe and double clicked it and nothing happened. It use to run at startup but no longer does and I checked and it is still set to run at startup but does not, any clues as to what is going on? I believe I am using Windows Vista Home Premium.
I managed to fix it by going to Device Manager in the control panel uninstalling Dell Touchpad and rebooting.

Hi all,  Having puchased a X1 Carbon few days ago, I realised that my trackpad and touchpad are acting erractically when I use the mouse at the same time. I detected these erractic movements due to some accidental touching of the trackpad and touchpad.  For example; my trackpad cursor would display a vertical and horizontal scrolling icons when I move the trackpad and I could not scroll my document using my mouse and touchpad. The scrolling icons would disappear after a short while and I would no longer move the cursor with the trackpad. However, the trackpad and mouse are able to move the cursor. However, scrolling remain unresponsive. I restart the machine and all is fine again till I tried to control the cursor with the trackpad again. I tried to disable the trackpad and touchpad since I have a mouse connected but only the trackpad can be disable.  This is my first Thinkpad and I assume users will disable both the trackpad and touchpad with a connected mouse. I do not know if these problem exist out of the box since I connect the mouse to it on my 3rd day of usage and I found them due to the accidental touching of the trackpad last night. Further trial and error confirmed their erratic movements. I tried to re-install the drivers and navipoint but the issue remained.  Is my trackpad and mousepad having problem for these erratic movements and by default, both the trackpad and touchpad cannot be disabled in Thinkpad?

Dell,
Touchpad  replacing  Trackpad  in Laptops

Users of the laptops are feeling difficult to use the touchscreen facility in the recent laptops, because the screen is perpendicular to the hand and fingers. In most of the laptops, the trackpad and the area left and right of it are vacant.  This area can be used as touchpad replacing trackpad,  as shown in the following figures.  This new touchpad is parallel to the hand and so easy to write, scribble, select, swipe and do digital signatures.



 

The touchpad can be enabled to function as trackpad using special key combination(s).  Many app and program icons can be displayed on this touchpad similar to those in tablets and smartphones.  
Additional modifications can be included in this idea to make this feature very useful in laptops, desktops, All in one computers.
Reference:
 The Touch Bar on MacBook Pro.
This Touch Bar on MacBook Pro is very small, difficult to view and difficult to reach by fingers for digital signatures and other actions as mentioned in the following weblink.

 Hey guys, I'm having problems with the touchpad buttons: the system can't distinguish a left click from a right click. Whenever I click one of the two buttons the system reads it as if I'm clicking on both and keep pressing. I tried also to disable them and use the trackpad but also those buttons are not working well. They just work for a couple of minutes and then they stop. However if I run the Thinkvantage suite they seem to work fine and the system reads the click properly.What do you think is wrong?Thanks

Answer:Touchpad and Trackpad Buttons not Working

Hi Lenovo & all, I use the trackpoint most of the time, but recently after updating the drivers for a number of times from Lenovo update manager I found out that the touchpad on my T60 is not working right. Symptom is that whenever my T60 is tilted forward or backward (i.e. not sitting horizontally flat), then there will be great difficult trying to control the pointer with the touchpad (not responding, etc). Did somebody encounter similar problem?

Answer:Weird Touchpad / TrackPad problem on T60

I found that the problem can be due to the palm rest region being pressed down my my palm:If I press the palm region up on the edge (as it flex a little bit when I use force), then the touchpad works fine even when the laptop is tilted. However, when I stop pressing up on the edge, especially after I have put my palms onto the palm rest to type again, then the touchpad stop behaving normally again It is a design fault of T60, or is it just my T60? Can I have it fixed?

Guys I see hundreds of posts on this old and aggravating topic with totally guesswork "answers" from Microsoft, help forums, including this one. There has to be an answer, right?

BTW this seems common on all types of laptops irrespective of make. I have tried this with both the vendor [lenovo] driver and with standard MS provided "mouse" driver. No diff in this regard though the packages are very different [lenovo very complex]
Also, this is a new phenomenon on this particular unit. In the past, no issues. Windows power-plan update?

as title says. Use laptop. Leave laptop [plugged in or not does not matter]. Return to use laptop after hours. Laptop awakes by normal means but no touchpad/trackpad etc function. Logoff, logon, still no touchpad cursor movement [frozen in centered position].

There is no Power Plan setting for "mouse" or touchpad or trackpad.
There is no Advanced Tab in Device Manager for same
There is no sleep/power/etc settings anywhere in Device Manager for same
There is no Windows error related to the problem
Full reboot required to gain coherency

Something in Power Mgmt, I guess, is offing the touchpad but the parameter is not obvious.

Someone somewhere knows this answer, right??

Answer:Touchpad Trackpad inoperable after sleep

Other then the button to disable the trackpad being somehow accidentally pushed, A lot of the times this problem is reported, And I keep going through all the options. If you have done all the fixes, the problem is most likely with the touchpad itself on the laptop. It is usually a hardware issue. I would call the laptop company and go through their troubleshooting steps (even though forums usually cover all those angles well). But it is usually hardware if all the fixes that are suggested are applied.

The Yoga is my 1st Windows machine in years. Coming from various MacBook(s) Pro(s) I dearly miss the capabilities and configurability of Apple's multitouch touchpad. While responsibility of the Synaptics device is fairly decent I haven't found an experience that is anything close to the one perceived on the MacBook touchpad. Latter in combination with BetterTouchTool is my weapon of choice when it comes to productivity. It offers almost unlimited configurability, that is, I can design/configure any gesture I desire and link it to a keystroke for instance. It's just perfect since I am not into Apple's predefined gesture settings at all. Now I have spent endless hours in getting this back on my new Yoga. At least I am now able to use 3 finger swipes for back/forward navigation. However, this is just a fraction of what I need/want. That's why I am looking for a way to either be able to modify the driver myself (open source, Lenovo/Synaptics?) or get access to an API I can build on. Obviously I'd prefer latter option. Synaptics is touting their Gesture Suite but I cannot find a download somewhere. I'm afraid it's OEM only. And if that's the config app that comes with the standard Synaptics driver it's just pathetic. So does anyone have a clue on how we can significantly improve the performance of this otherwise very nice laptop? Thanks in advance,stfn

Answer:Yoga 13: any chance for open source Synaptics touchpad driver or touchpad API?

hi stfn-64,my personal opinion on this case, i don't think either lenovo or synaptics will share the main source codes with you or anyone else.at this point, i suggest you to try to update drivers synaptics. it may solve your issue.hope this helps.

I have tried all sorts of drivers to try and get it working but alas nothing has worked. I contacted the live support and they just told me to install the Lenovo companion and give that a go with the drivers from that, but it did nothing to help and ended up downloading the same drivers I tried before.   I have the same issues in Ubuntu also and there is no activity when it comes to the pad, the buttons dont work nor does the motion.  I have looked around on the internet and found next to no solutions for the problem I have.    On my device manager I have however one single unknown device, which I have tried to install drivers onto and that doesnt work also, so I have no idea what that could be.   I would like any advice at this point becuase its driving me mad and I am unable to return the laptop due to being currently in another country.   Thanks in advance.

Unfortunately, the trackpad and touchpad of my T460p stop working intermittently. The problem seems to occur after the laptop is going into hibernation. When it boots up afterwards, neither the trackpad nor the touchpad or the mouse buttons work, and the device manager shows the Synaptics device having a hardware issue. The problem persists when rebooting the system and even when using a different operation system (e.g. Ubuntu via a Live USB). I tried upgrading the Synaptics drivers (v19.0.19.1), which does not solve the problem though. I also tried different driver versions (e.g. the ones offered on the Lenovo site), without success. I encountered this problem both on Windows 10 Home & Windows 10 Enterprise Edition, as well as various Linux flavors (Ubuntu, Fedora). The only workaround that I found is to shut down the laptop, remove the battery and reboot it afterwards, which seems to reset the faulty state the touchpad is in. I strongly suspect that this is a problem with the firmware of either the mainboard or the Synpatics device itself, which puts it into an invalid state when going into hibernation. For now, I disabled hibernation mode, which avoids the problem but is not ideal of course. Did someone else run into this problem? Any ideas how to permanently fix this? I'm very happy with the T460p otherwise but this problem just drives me crazy as it's impossible to use a laptop without touchpad/trackpad when traveling.

I recently got this new Thinkpad T460p and installed Windows and Ubuntu in dual boot. Even after 3 Days there was no error. But today I noticed a quite annoying behaviour. When I boot into Windows (Start up --> Grub, select Windows Loader --> Windows 10 starts) there appears the loading cycle (those white points) and for a short moment, even before the locked Windows screen appears, I can see the cursor. But immediately after that (when the locked home screen appears) the laptop won't recognize any input via touchpad, buttons or trackpad andthere won't appear a cursor at all. I need to login and wait for about a minute (Whatever I do, the laptop won't recognize anything but the normal keyboard), thats the moment in which my Laptop realizes that there are more possibilities to input data then just the keyboard and recognizes everything (touchpad, buttons and trackpad).I already deinstalled the synaptic driver and reinstalled the latest update and even tried the one before that one just to be sure. Nothing fixed my problem yet.PS.: When I start into Ubuntu there is no Problem at all.PPS.: When I started into Windows a day ago It worked fine as well.

I have a new X1 Yoga 2nd Gen and the track has the following problems with two finger scroll. 1 When scrolling with Internet Explorer or Edge it scrolls smoothly but then the page will start jumping up and down. It often does this during a smooth two finger scrolling stroke. 2 When scrolling through a text document, directories and most things that are not browser related the effort and number of strokes with my fingers required goes up hugely. It is like the page is stuck and difficult to move. I write software so scrolling through documents with various editors and android studio is part of my daily work. I have the latest Bios, latest drivers and Windows is fully up to date. I reported the fault to Lenovo and they signed on to my computer and agreed there is a problem. They offered to swap the laptop or to get an engineer out to replace the touchpad. When I told the consultant that this is the second X1 Yoga laptop I have had because of this problem he said it was probably a bad batch of hardware. I doubt this as it seems more like bad drivers. Does anyone else have these problems? I am currently using a Thinkpad T420 which I think is perfect machine in all ways but just too slow now. Phil

Hello, on my ThinkPad Yoga (version 03/2015) with Win10 pro (latest updates installed) the Trackpoint randomly stops to move the cursor. The issue can be present right after booting or occur anytime, even running the device multiple hours without experiencing any problems is not uncommon.However, the three buttons still work properly when pressed. The same holds for the touchpad, an external mouse and any input via touchscreen (finger and pen). So, it is really "just" about the red rubber point itself.Sometimes suspending to RAM solves the issue for a short time. The problem seems to occur slightly more often when running on battery but I am not fully sure about that. Furthermore, only the Trackpoint of the ThinkPad itself is affected, I have not experienced this for the Trackpoint of my external ThinkPad Compact Keyboard .  I have the latest UltraNav drivers from the Lenovo website installed, version 19.0.17.22. Of course, I have taken out the rubber and checked for dust.The only thing left would be to try reproducing the issue using a Linux Live system but this is hard to do due to it occuring randomly. Does anyone have any guesses? Does this sound like a driver issue or something hardware related (some sort of loose contact or the like: Sometimes it seems that movement of the device causes the failure of the TrackPoint)? I feel a little reluctant to have replaced the mainboard on spec but I do not know what else to do. Thanks in advance.

Hi I have an X100e (dual core turion ybased) which appears to have developed a problem with the left most key at the foot of the touchpad. Specifically, it has developed an annoying clicking sound periodically when in use. I believe the click may be something to do with a bar that may be sitting under the key to ensure that the whole key moves parallel to the keyboard when pressed (much like other wide keys such as the space bar, the shift or enter kes). What I would like to know is whether there is a way to reseat the key to resolve the clicking sound or whether rectification of the problem lies in returning the product to a service centre for the palm rest (part code: 60Y5284) to be changed. Roger

Answer:X100e Touchpad / Trackpad button sticking / clicking

Roger- I just discovered a similar clicking/sticking problem for the "m" key on my x200s.  Did you ever find a solution to your problem? Thanks. Greg

The cursor is jumping around when you lift your finger from the trackpad. I am finding it very difficult to use Photoshop and cannot do anything precise which is ironic as this is a precision touchpad. There is nothing precision about it.
In this post someone found a firmware Dell for XPS13, Is there something similar for 5559?
Thank Very Much

Answer:Problem in 5559 (series 5000) touchpad / trackpad

You can update the System Setup(BIOS)and see if that make an difference. Please click on the link below:
https://youtu.be/mWn9YfxtYBo

Just making sure I'm reading your post correctly, you do have the precision touchpad on the Inspiron 5559 ? Correct ? If you don't know for sure, go to device manager, stroll down to "Mice And Other Pointed Devices, and then expand it. Hopefully, you'll see touchpad driver.

Hi all,

I've basically spent the whole day looking for a solution (which I still don't think I have), so figured I'd try my luck here.

The trackpad/touchpad (mouse cursor) on the Dell XPS 13 (9343) will randomly freeze-up, stop scrolling, stop being able to mouse click, start randomly resizing/scrolling or will cease to do anything at all after a while. This is a known issue apparently and commonly experienced by most owners.

Does anyone know of an actual solution for this? Dell released a firmware update that supposedly addressed the issue however unfortunately mine started doing it again today to the point where I had to literally power the machine off and reboot.

From what I've read here:

YES!!! A SOLUTION/ACTUAL WORKING FIX! XPS Laptop's - Touchpad / Touch pad / Mouse issue. Windows 8/10 need apply. Scrolling in Chrome mirrors that of Edge. Now THIS is Precision. Scrolling you're actually used to seeing on a laptop. : Dell

It sounds like my next move might be to try installing the windows 10 PS/2 generic driver from Synaptics?

Any advice/help on this would be greatly appreciated! I can't really find any solutions or updates past 2015..

Between this and trying to update my sound driver, I'm losing my hair, FAST.

Hello all,

I unboxed this laptop today and the touchpad does not respond very well often requiring a few seconds of "wiggling" before it will work. It is also quite jumpy.

I have tried changing various settings including the sensitivity and the plam prevention, but to no avail.

I have tried this with multiple operating systems, including launching directly from a disc, and the problem persists.

Has anyone else had this experience, or any advice to share regarding this matter?

Thank you all very much for your time.

Answer:Qosmio X870-119 - Trackpad/Touchpad is extremely unresponsive

Hello,

I, too, have just unboxed a Qosmio X870-119 and have the same problem with the touchpad.

I noticed that the "unresponsiveness" happens most often when I leave the touchpad idle and untouched for a few seconds. When I do that, it then takes a couple seconds of wiggling for the cursor to start moving.

I've also toyed with all the options in the provided software, but to no avail. Maybe there's a fault with the driver ?

Thanks in advance for any help with this matter.

I've been having an issue with my X270 laptop since I bought it. The laptop is running Windows 10. What happens is randomly (this can take weeks, or days) the trackpad and pointing stick completely stops working. The only solution is to uninstall the drivers and reinstall them using an external mouse. I've tried various versions of the drivers, including the latest, and it still continues to happen. Any solutions to fix this?

What is the part no. for the cable that connects the bluetooth module?Touchpad/trackpad stopped working after disconnecting/reconnecting its ribbon cable (while checking the bluetooth module) - I can see the little gold fingers at the motherboard end are now messed up.

I've tried everything. No one had ever had this problem, except me. Searching online and Youtube proved to be no help. I beg all of you who have experience with issues like this to please read.

When I first brought my laptop (ASUS Q304UA) , it was perfectly fine and no problems. However, up until 7 months into using it, the trackpad suddenly became unresponsive out of no where. It would jump around and fly everywhere when using it. The multi touch gestures would make the screen go crazy and do all sorts of zooms, multitasking, etc when just trying to scroll down. It was definitely unusable.

This prompted me to RMA it to ASUS, which took them one month to repair it. They had apparently replaced only the hard drive claiming it was a "bad sector" or whatever... Upon several hours of use after repairs, the problem was back.

I then RMA'd it a second time which made them replace the motherboard and trackpad. Unfortunately, the problem did come back, except it took a little longer (5 days/ 1week).

Now I know that this is NOT hardware because I encountered that restarts, restores, etc all solve the problem temporarily and then comes back. When messing with programs and devices, I feel the mouse gets a little better for a couple minutes but then resumes to its terrible and erratic behavior, rendering my laptop COMPLETELY useless.

I cannot do ANYTHING with this trackpad as it constantly jumps around and teleport making it EXTREMELY difficult to click on the ... Read more

I could really use some help with this. I've searched all over the net and there isn't a real solution to this. Most threads are closed or never answered. I have a Dell Vostro 1510 and everything works fine but when doing things fast or under high cpu load my trackpad locks up for a second and if I try to keep using it it will trail slowly until I stop for a second then go and it works again. Something is temporarily locking it up and it can be very annoying during some things.

It is a Synaptics PS/2 Port TouchPad. Using "device driver update" produced no new hardware that matched better than what I have currently. The funny thing I noticed is the device drivers for my model on Dell doesn't match what I have..

None of those 3 under Keyboard/Mouse match what I have. Or do they? I matched the synaptic version and it didn't match anything there. Here is a list of my shipped system specs:

Answer:Vostro 1510 Touchpad/Trackpad Freezes Randomly

Ran the Dell diagnostics and using the symptom tree I ran the 2 tests that fit this issue (I guess it's a real common problem for it to be standard in the system tree) and it didn't detect any errors/issues. All passed. By the way, to clarify what I meant by High CPU Load I was speaking of the cylinder light on the keyboard dash. I think that's actually for the HDD not CPU. So again it seems to happen when the hdd is already under load.

Following some extremely helpful posts here, I've succeeded in installing Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit on my HP Pavilion 15-n228us. I can't figure out how to adjust any settings on the touch pad / track pad, however.

Hello, Is there a way to reduce the delay between the last keystroke and when the trackpad registers an input? It currently takes about 2 or 3 seconds for my clicks and swipes to register and it slows things down quite a lot. I was not able to find any settings to alter this, so any help would be appreciated. This has been an issue since I bought my laptop and it's a minor but significant nuisance.

The Yoga Pro 2 is the first laptop I've ever owned with a trackpad. In the past I've owned Thinkpads which have the excellent Trackpoint red nipple. I want to conserve my Yoga's trackpad as much as I can, so I want to get a cover for it. Anybody know where I can find a protective layer that will fit the trackpad on the Yoga 2?

I recently used the refresh option on my Yoga. Since then I've had issues with the trackpad. It has a delay at times, pressing the pad doesn't register a click unless I actually tap the bottom part, and, most annoyingly, cannot scroll.  How do I fix this? Going to "mouse properties" and then hardware, I only show "PS/2 compatible mouse." I normally use an external mouse so I suspect it's referring to that mouse, rather than the trackpad. I downloaded a synaptics driver but when I tried to install it, it told me no synaptics device was found.  I have Windows 8.1 Thanks!

This may work for others that have the same material the trackpad on the Yoga 2 Pro is made from... I had noticed right aways that the trackpad on my Yoga 2 Pro looks oily/shiny/blotchy after a little use, and have been trying to track down a source for a vinyl or skin to protect it.  So far I haven't found much other than full device skins. In doing so I decided to use a piece of clear packing tape to clean the trackpad and was surprised that not only does it remove dust, but it makes the trackpad look like new removing any oil/buildups on it. Since I use the screen and a mouse now, I like that I can have the trackpad looking pristine until I find a source for a vinyl or skin to protect it.... if only they used glass instead like the mbpro...

First Windows computer. The 900 is fresh off factory floor in China. My trackpad ALWAYS makes a CLICK noise when I just touch the pad. The only way to not hear that is if I go to the top left or right of the pad then it is silent. The bottom portion always makes that noise. I'm afraid if might drive me nuts. And I'm not talking about punching down on the trackpad, just touching it. Is it supposed to do this? Otherwise my orange 900 is really sweet. Thanks!

Answer:YOGA 900 Does Trackpad Always Go CLICK!

The trackpad is clicky, I like it like that. Since its a multi touch trackpad, you can just tap it instead of pressing it and you won't hear a click. Optionally, you can use the touchscreen. And yes, its supposed to click like that

I recently (as in, yesterday) bought myself a Yoga 710-14IKB. Straight out of the box, I found that the trackpad didn't work as it should. The side of my thumb, i.e. the way I would naturally click, simply won't work with attempting to left-click except on the rare occassion. Attached is an image to give you the idea--I'm not certain I described it well enough.I returned the first one, thinking it might be a hardware problem when updating and deleting the driver did nothing to help, but the replacement does the same thing. It seems like uninstalling Synaptics does show that it's not a hardware problem, but obviously leaves you with a sluggish cursor and no scrolling.It runs on Windows 10 and uses Synaptics Pointing Device v. 19.0.17.116, I'm assuming it's an issue with either Windows 10 or the latest Synaptics driver, but rolling back did nothing. Is anyone else having this issue? Any remedies out there? I can adjust to clicking differently, but I'd prefer not to. I'm very set in my ways, you know.

I have had my Yoga 710 Thinkpad or the last 6 months without any problems, until a couple of days ago, when my Trackpad stopped working.  There is no response from the cursor, which disappears when I use the touchscreen.  I can see the cursor when I press Ctrl, but is completely unresponsive when I try to use the trackpad.
 
I have been through the forums and tried everything short of resetting the computer with no success:
-Pressed F6.
-Tried to enable the mouse from the control panel, there was no option to enable or disable the touchpad.
-Tried every combination of deleting, updating and checking the mouse driver.
-Updated the BIOS from the website.  I also could not find an option to enable the mouse from the BIOS screen.
-Fully updated Windows 10.
-Booted up the computer in Safe Mode, no joy.
 
I am running Windows 10 on a Lenovo Yoga 710 14ISK, model 80TY, the touchpad is Synaptics.  According to the Control Panel, the device drivers are up to date, and the device is (apparently) working properly.
 
Many thanks in advance for any help offered.

I just bought a Yoga 3 14" laptop and immediately upgraded to Windows 10, which required me to upgrade some software and drivers before things worked correctly. I'm having a heck of a time with the trackpad and am hoping that it's just a configuration issue that I can fix in software. When I first started using the laptop, the trackpad had this terrible setup where the bottom left corner was always a right-click. I went into the Lenovo settings and removed this feature. However, now it seems that I can only register a left-click by clicking the top 1/3 of the trackpad. Clicking anywhere lower does nothing. Tap-to-click does work regardless of where I tap. Is there some sort of calibration or software setting I can change to make it so the entire trackpad is clickable? Because right now the thing is essentially unusable and I'll have to return it. Thanks in advance.

Answer:Yoga 3 14" trackpad is terrible - Any fix?

I have three yoga 3 1470's all running windows 10, not had any issues with the trackpad on them.I use the trackpad software to change default settings for tapping and scrolling etc... The bottom left and right edges of the trackpad are clickable buttons so not sure why you don't use these as left and right "physical" clicks?I would hazard to guess maybe your config for the sofware is borked. But the physical button area should still work?Perhaps reinstall the driver/sofware for the touchpad?
