Answer: How do i enable scrolling on touchpad

Have you downloaded any touchpad-associated software from the Dell site? They may have adapted the Synaptics driver themselves."I've always been mad, I know I've been mad, like the most of us..." Pink Floyd

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.

Hi - does anyone know how to enable the mouse scroller on the mouse pad?
I assume this is software enabled but can't find how to do it.

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.

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 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,

Anybody know how to activate *scrolling option* (vertical and horizontal) on *Portege z-930*?
I tried to find any option for activation in mouse settings menu (Windows 8), but unfortunately can't .

Click and zoom function is working good.
It is hard to believe what this model do not support touch pad scrolling at all. ((

Please, advice.
Thank you very much in advance!

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 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??
Cheers Phill
I have about a month left on the warranty, so hopefully this would be something that may be covered if no-one can help.

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.

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.

We just got a Dell XPS-15z, and, we have questions about scrolling on the Cypress touchpad using the Cypress drivers.

When scrolling down (either one finger or 2 fingers), when you hit the bottom of the touchpad, is there any way for the scrolling to continue without your having to lift your finger(s) back to the top of the touchpad? On other Dell laptops, I have Chiral motion, or the scrolling continues so long as your finger is at the bottom of the touchpad? I tried enabling the "Continued Motion" option just in case that was what did it, but that did not seem to work.

Which brings up another question re what "Continued Motion" does.

Also, is there any manual/help document for this driver either on the internet, or in the software itself?

I looked on the forum and on the internet, and couldn't find any answers.

TIA.

Also Touchpad light goes out after 5 seconds.[This is normal]

Any help with the above would be appreciated
Thanks

Answer:Satellite 5200 - Touchpad scrolling in Opera / Touchpad backlight

I?m not sure but I think the Opera explorer doesn?t support this option.

But if the Opera supports this option so maybe you have to enable it only in the Opera settings?

But play around with the settings or visit some Opera support sites

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.

My touchpad has lost its scrolling functions since I upgraded to Windows 10, a year ago, and nothing I try can fix that.    I understand Windows comes with built-in drivers for mouse and touchpad, with the basic functions for the cursor. But that Synaptics drivers, with other functions like scrolling, are quickly downloaded and installed.   Well, in my case, it seems that these Synaptics drivers never take over, never get to actually control the touchpad: they seem correctly installed and activated, and I do check the scrolling functions all right; but the touchpad continues to behave as if it were still driven by the basic built-in drivers in Windows.   In fact sometimes I uninstall and totally delete the Synaptics drivers and make do with the basic Windows software; until the next automatic downloading of the useless Synaptics.   Thanks for any help.

Answer:G50-70 touchpad not scrolling

You have installed latest Synaptic touchpad driver from website and you are still facing an issue in page scrolling, then you can try changing the settings of the One/ Two Finger Scrolling feature (located under Mouse Properties). Try below steps to resolve the issue:1. In Mouse Properties window as seen below, choose Device Settings.2. Under Device Settings, select Settings.3. You can customize the scrolling behavior of your mouse by checking the relevant boxes under Scrolling.4. You can opt to enable vertical and/or horizontal scrolling according to your preference.5.

I have a new XPS 15 9560 laptop with a precision touchpad (Microsoft drivers) running Windows 10 (1703, 64-bit). The touchpad generally works fine, but with two-finger scrolling sometimes I experience a 0.5 s lag OR the pad interprets the gesture as a pointer move (although I definitely use 2 fingers). The behavior is seemingly random, but it occurs quite often.I disabled "pinch to zoom" in settings. I also tried increasing the touchpad sensitivity in settings and reducing the APPThreshold in the registry to 0 (Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\PrecisionTouchPad), but this didn't help.Does anyone have an idea how to fix this?Many thanks,Geert

I have a DELL XPS M1530 laptop that I just installed a full version of Windows 7. It had Windows Vista on it before. It is a replacement computer for my old DELL (same model) that was having issues.

I usually hook up a bluetooth mouse when I use my computer, but I just noticed last night when I was using the touchpad instead, is that it does not scroll up and down, or left to right. The mouse part of the touchpad works fine, as does the left and right buttons.

I am assuming the scrolling is just turned off on this computer (thinking simply first ... hoping it is not a serious issue). But I cannot find where to check to see if it needs to be turned back on.

I have an OmniBook XE3 using XP pro, and am having problems with the touchpad automatically scrolling up and down when my cursor is not on the scrolling bar. This tends to happen quite frequently after I have carried out some scrolling, then released the click button and moved my cursor into the body of the text/page. It is quite irritating and I would welcome any advice on how I might stop this happening.

Answer:Touchpad scrolling problems

Not exactly surewhat is happening but you need to look at the touchpad utility which would be preloaded onto the system. With this you alter the behaviour of the touchpad e.g. speed of scrolling, double click speed etc. It`ll be in the start>programs list perhaps called "synaptics". Usually the right hand side of the touchpad area can be used to scroll up and down and the bottom left and right. If it`s a small pad this can be irritating.Similarly the touchpad may "lock" the scoll feature when you click the left button which is useful if you hae a long document but again irritating if you don`t!Havea readon thehelp file associated with your device. I`msure you can disable some of these features.

Answer:G-580 touchpad problem when scrolling

Hi,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community!
 
I?m sorry to hear that your new G580 Laptops touchpad scroll feature is not working as expected, I suggest you to re-install the Touchpad driver in the computer and check the issue. While installing the driver right click on the downloaded file and select ?Run as administrator? option to get it installed without any error.
 
Do post us back if the issue persists.
 
Best Regards

Shiva Kumar

I have recently bought a Z50-70 laptop and i would like to know if i is possible to preform one finger scrolling instead  of two fingers? My laptop has a synaptics Touchpad V8.1.scrolling for 1 finger is not in device settings of the mouse/touchpad in configuration screen.

Answer:Z50 70 touchpad scrolling one finger?

Hi Cubeblast,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community!
 
 As per the query we understood that you are looking to perform touchpad scrolling one finger in your Z50-70 laptop.
 

To perform one finger scrolling go to control panel, select mouse option under mouse select ultranav tab,

 

Under ultranav select touchpad setting under setting select the drop down option

 

Under the scrolling, you can find two option as one finger scrolling and two finger scrolling, select the two finger scrolling.

 

Disable the two finger scroll option by unticking on the enable option, click on apply and ok button and check for the issue.

 
Hope this helps. Do post back if issue persists!
 
Best regards,       
 
Ashwin.S

Hi all, i recently purchased a re-furbished 1040 G2 running W7 64 bit and am having a peculiar problem with the touchpad. Sometimes when I am 2 finger scrolling an icon is left behind on the screen and if I mouse over it I get the spinning blue symbol showing activity. The icon is the same as you would normally see while scrolling. I did try uninstalling and re-installing the driver, the driver is Synaptics version 190.0.17.1.

Purchased a HP ze4930us notebook last week. Have been having minor problems with the scrolling option on the touchpad, the thing on the right side of the touchpad that lets you easily scroll up and down web pages and other things. Sometimes it doesn't work.

Under one scenario, I will have to click on the webpage somewhere to get it to work. But the webpage is already selected even before I do this, because I am able to scroll the manual way, using the up and down arrows, or the page up and page down arrows. Why do I have to click somewhere on the webpage when it is already selected?

Under another scenario, the scrolling option won't even work even when I do click somewhere on the webpage. I am able to do everything else though, like scroll by using the arrows or page up and down arrows. The only way I can get the touchpad scrolling to work on the page is to either minimize the page I want to use the scrolling, and then maximize it again, or open, or make another window prominent, window, and then go back to the window that I want to do the scrolling. This works as well.

Usually, though, I do not have any problems with the scrolling on the touchpad.
 

Answer:problems with scrolling when using touchpad

I have a new ZV5000 and the scroll, while not as bad as you describe IS less sensitive than the one on my older ZT1170.

I'm not sure if it is because of the ridges on the new one or not? There are some adjustments under the Control Panel/Mouse screens that may help you?

Under "Tapping" I set the touch sensitivity to HIGH and that has helped me.

Other things I have noticed is that if there is a Window WITHIN a window, such as on the Forum's POST section, the scrolling function is specific to where the cursor is positioned....NOT the Pointer.

The same is true for Websites that use "Frames".

But the thing that STILL drives me nuts is the autoscrolling at the top and bottom of the scroll line on the touchpad!!! I always hit the spot and scroll PAST where I want to be. I have been training myself to lift my finger off the pad at the end of a scroll stroke.

To eneble scrolling in vmware guest mechines we can install TwoFingerScroll application for windows pc from the below link

"https://github.com/awahlig/two-finger-scroll"

It will enable the scrolling with touchpad in VMware.First download the zip file and extract it.Then run the TwoFingerScroll.exe once,then check the right corner of the taskbar,if it does not appears there then check the hidden icons there.Now double click that icon and change the settings as you want.You may turn off the scrolling feature of your default touch pad application.
According to my tests to get most out of it we should turn off the acceleration,set the speed to its full limit,and set the scroll mode to compatible.

Hello all, Just recently bought a HP Spectre x30, and very pleased with it. However, there is something ANNOYING going on and I can't seem to fix it without using the system recovery option. It works, but doing this on a daily basis is just not doable.  There is something I do with the touchpad, or something wrong with the touchpad and I think it is very easy to fix but I can't detect the exact definition of the problem. When the system is recovered, the touchpad works fine. With the left click I am able to select a piece of text, and with the right click I am able to use the dropdown menu and options such as copy and paste. However, when I accidentely do something, I think something like double click with the left click on the pad, something happens and the options I just described dont work anymore. Instead: a scroll lock or something similar happens. The only thing that I can do with the left click and the right click is scroll through a page. The icon looks like this: https://thumb9.shutterstock.com/display_pic_with_logo/4230679/520422082/stock-vector-scroll-icon-520... I have no idea how to shut this off and it is very anoying since I use my laptop daily for my study and need to  be able to select text and copy it.  Please help me, I am so happy with my laptop but this is just veryyy unpractical!! Thank you!!

Hello, I have a weird issue with my touchpad on Windows 10. On startup, the scrolling with the touchpad partially works, I mean, half of the time it scrolls properly, the other half it will zoom/unzoom or put the mouse pointer at a random place on the screen. I partially found a solution to this problem : as soon as Windows has finished to start, I close my laptop to put it in sleep mode, and after that, the scrolling works perfectly again, but everytime I reboot I have to do that so it becomes a little bit boring... Note that on a previous installation of Windows 10 on this computer (which was my second installation), I had the same issue, but the next day, an update has fixed it (or at least I think it was the update, I rebooted as the update asked me and the problem was gone so I don't know if it was the update, the reboot, or the magic...). And on my first installation, still on this computer, I never had this problem... So is this problem known here ? I've read so many thing things about touchpad issues, but that was always about touchpad not working at all, in my case, it works almost perfectly, just the scrolling will not perfectly works until I put the computer in sleep mode...

But yesterday, I took the time to reinstall OS X (and Windows and Linux because the HDD has to be empty to install OS X so I had to erase everything), then I reinstalled Windows and the problem was back. So I guess the problem is related to OS X, I don't see how and why but that's my only explanation...

Hey there,
While I can't help with your specific set up - I can give you a hint of a few places to look.
1) Check out the touchpad software settings (for my machines, that's usually the synaptics touchpad software). You can bring up Windows 10 context menu's regarding the touchpad by right clicking on the start button on the bottom left of the screen. From there, choose "Control panel". In there, click on the mouse settings. There are usually several tabs here, you will have to hunt for which one will be relevant for your touchpad. I found mind as "switch direction" in a synaptics tab.
2)Click on the Start button again. Click on "Settings". From here, there is the "ease of access". There is the "mouse" field here (which offers different buttons than the control panel route). There is also an 'oth... Read more

So I recently got my T460s as a work machine and I love the device, except for the touchpad experience. Compared to my personal device, a Surface Pro 4, I am left very disappointed in this regard. Using two fingers to scroll is a nightmare. It often freezes mid-scroll, and immediately after scrolling the cursor would reappear, jump somewhere, and a click would be performed. Sometimes, this click would highlight text on the webpage, other times, this click would click on a favorite in the favorites bar and force me into another site. It just isnt a smooth scrolling experience. Something is definitely wrong here, and I just hope its not a hardware issue. I am running Windows 10, and I have all my drivers up-to-date, including the Synaptics driver. I tried going into the Synaptics settings and disabling the touchpoint like some have suggested, didnt work. I tried rebooting, didnt work. I tried disabling two-finger scrolling, rebooting, then re-enabling it, didnt work. I tried uninstalling the driver and re-installing it, didnt work. I dont know what else do to. Has anyone had any luck with this? UPDATE: I've isolated the issue to it happening only in Windows 10/Modern UI apps, including the Microsoft Edge browser. The mouse cursor disappears in these apps when scrolling and jumps around after scrolling has stopped. But this isnt the case in say File Explorer, Google Chrome, or Microsoft Word.

Hi! When our office laptops were upgraded, our company sold us our old laptops at depreciated cost. Mine was acting perfectly fine until a few weeks ago, when out IT removed my user profile and changed me over to admin. It now starts up with a BIOS lock (asks for a password, but that's fine since IT gave it to me, though I could do without the shrill beeping sound every time I open the laptop).

Anyway, the laptop works fine for a while after startup, but once I start running more programs and open a few tabs in IE or Forefox simultaneously, the cursor and trackpad start acting up. When I open a new page in IE, for example, the cursor automatically scrolls down to the bottom of the page and refuses to scroll back up when I try to do so (it sort of "snaps" back into place a the bottom of the page). The screen also starts to flicker like crazy when this happens. I also have difficulty selecting icons in the control panel because of the same issue. If the icon is arranged in the top array, I can select it but then a few sconds later the cursor moves down to the icon located at the bottom of the same column, so I end up opening the wrong folder etc. I have tried uninstalling the touchpad drivers and reinstalling, but the problem persists. The same problem exhibits even if I plug in a USB mouse.

My driver version is 8.1200.101.134 but in the touchpad settings the "Scroll & Zoom" section is missing as you can see below:

Every other gestures are working, like pinch zoom, except the vertical and horizontal scroll. But the strangest thing is on the task bar the touch pad icon seems to be right, it shows that I'm touching the side of the touch pad: .
What can I do to get back my good old scrolling?

Answer:Touchpad scrolling on E6430 with Windows 8.1

1. Go to Program Files -> DellTpad -> DellTPad.exe
2. Then Select Single Finger Gestures.

I didnt find any driver for this kind of problem and its quite annoying. Thank you for any feedback! Matej Skalnik Oh, btw Im running Lenovo SL500 with Win 7 Prof.

Answer:Scrolling on touchpad in Windows 7 - problem

Works fine here... just use the Synaptics Ultranav driver from the Lenovo driver page for SL500

I am using Windows XP Pro.  I have tried every combination of trackpoint and touchpad options, and I have ensured that the latest driver is installed.  The touchpad scrolling function simply does not work with Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop, MS Access and a number of Visual Basic add-ins.  These are important, mainstream applications.  At the peak of frustration, I can plug in a USB mouse, and the mousewheel will scroll any of these applications perfectly.  I know these problems are not unique to my laptop because I have seen other posts describing similar problems.  Does anyone from Lenovo participate in this community?  How about giving us an explanation, or better yet, how about giving us a new touchpad driver.

Answer:X300 Touchpad Scrolling Problems

I have posted about the same problem, except I'm on Windows Vista Business. No touchpad scrolling with certain programs, while scrolling on a USB mouse works fine.  This happens with iTunes, Windows Live Mail, and any program through my Remote Desktop Conneciton to my work server.  Maybe we should start a list of programs for which X300 touchpad scrolling doesn't work... It definitely seems like a driver problem, and is a major problem when you consider this is one of the most expensive ultraportable laptops around. Lenovo, if you're out there: how about a new driver to solve this problem?...

First of all, I'm running an ASUS Q550L Windows 8.1. I believe this system uses "SmartGesture" for the toucpad driver, which I uninstalled and reinstalled a couple of times over the past couple of days trying to get this worked out. If there are other specs that I should share, let me know.

The problem is that the multi finger gestures, in particular two-finger scrolling has been suddenly glitching and lagging. Scrolling with arrow keys or the click scroll on the side of pages works, but when I'm trying to use the two-finger scroll gesture on any page or program, the movement either lags several seconds and does an incomplete motion or it does not have any motion at all. It also sometimes clicks after the lag at random.

I've un and re-installed the SmartGesture driver a couple of times and that has not helped the issue. I also turned off many of the gestures which I do not use (such as any 3-finger scrolls or anything involving the app screen)

Any ideas? (aside from "buy a mouse". Someone "suggested" that one already.)
Thanks very much =)

I tied all solution posted in thread: "Elan touchpad not working in Windows 10" But without any sucess. I am very disapointed, I have been trying whole day to solve this and get it running but without any sucess.

Answer:E1-571 Elan touchpad not scrolling after windows 1...

I have the very same problem after Windows 10 update. I rolled back the driver to a generic PS-2 with no results. I then downloaded a new Elan driver and still no scroll. My wife is **bleep** as she will not use the computer w/out the scroll. I guess my options are go back to windows 8.1 or buy her a new computer

Hi, 
 
I uninstalled the synaptics in my lenovo yoga 500 i7 however when I downloaded the link that you posted below, it is not compatible with my laptop. Now, the touchpad scroll feature is totally not working. Before I uninstalled it, it was intermittently working. This laptop has just been puchased a week ago.
 
Please advise. Thank you.

Answer:Yoga 500 - touchpad for scrolling up/down is not working

Welcome to the Lenovo Community maydee07 !
 
Unfortunately that is one of the problems encountered when you join a discussion for another Lenovo model. What downloads work for that model may not work for yours.  I have now moved your posting to the Lenovo Yoga forum which is a better venue in which to discuss your issue.
 
As for the driver, here is the correct Synaptics driver for your model and Windows 10.......

Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
Can you try going into Conttrol Panel / Uninstall a Program and uninstall all synaptics component there then restart the system
 
Once the system is boted back up, Try installing this driver

Check if the scroll feature will work.
 
Hope this helps

After installing a MS Wireless Notebook optical mouse 4000, I noticed that when the mouse is not connected that the Laptop's Alp Touchpad no longer scrolls.The Alp touchpad icon in the Systray has also disappeared. Under Device Manager there's no entry for the Alp touchpad any more, just an OS/2 mouse.After reading similar threads in the forums, the Alp Touchpad drivers are reinstalled (+ a coupleo re-boots) if I uninstal the MS IntelliPoint 5.3 s/w as well as uninstalling the OS/2 mouse from Device Manager.But I can't seem to get the Touchpad scrolling working WITH the MS 4000 Mouse installed as well ~ which is what I want.It is still possible to use the Touchpad, its just the scrolling that seems to be disabled.Would greatly appreciate any further suggestions.Many thanks in anticipation.

Answer:Sony laptop Touchpad not scrolling

Sorry; that should have been PS/2 rather then OS/2 mouse entry in Device Manager!!

Hi there!

I upgraded my above Notebook to Windows 10 early April this year.
So far no problem. Everything worked fine. Everything.
Early last week Microsoft installed automatically some updates. I hate them for this way of "support".
From that minute no scolling either with the touchpad nor with the original Toshiba mouse possible.
Microsoft is not able to resolve the problem.
Any idea?

Thanks,
Zaro.

PS: Pls apologize my poor english but I didn't use it so much for some years.

Satellite ls7008. I have a laggy mouse when moving it with the touch-pad only. Every 4-6 seconds it stops then goes again. This is also happening when using the arrow keys on the keyboard when scrolling in a long web page. Now I am noticing input lag while typing. It does not do this when using a USB mouse(the mouse lag only). I have tried to restore, uninstall drivers, install new drivers(synoptics and Toshiba ones) and it still does it. I tried with and without a battery. I Turned off virus protection. Nothing has changed the input lag yet. Wondering if I need to reinstall windows 7 64bit as this really annoys me.
 

Answer:Laggy touchpad pointer and scrolling

Hi . Have, or do you do any maintainence to Windows? With a problem like this, I would do some work on the registry, I use the Freeware program called 'Winmend registry defrag 1.3.4'. You can download it from www.winmend.com. It is a 'light' program, and unlikely to do harm (as some can). Do a backup of your current registry as a safety precaution, before the scan. Also try 'CCleaner', as a general scan of your system to clear up any further 'problems'. I use these programs often, along with 'Auslogics Disc defrag 3.1.'
