View Full Version : Issues with the touch pad

12-01-2012, 05:01 AM
I just got a G75 and I'm finding that the touch pad is really unresponsive to multi-finger gestures. Just moving it around with a single finger works fine but it's really picky about using two finger gestures to zoom in and scroll and stuff. Did anyone else have this issue? Is there a fix for this? Will a driver update fix it?

EDIT: It seems to be working a little bit better now, but still not too good. Maybe my hands were just a bit sweaty. I'd still like to know if any one else had this problem and fixes though.

EDIT 2: I can get most of the gestures working with some difficulty except for the 2 and 3 button tap. Those don't work at all.

The following worked for me:
Go into Mouse Properties, Device Settings, (Synaptics Touchpad)Settings, and disable Asus Smart Detector.
The touch pad becomes much more sensitive and useable (at least for me) :)
Let us know if it works...

It helps. It's not as good as I would like, but it's decently usable now. Although, now I keep accidentally moving my cursor and clicking, I'll get used to it I guess. Is there a way to just lower the power of of the smart detector? I'm not sure what the adjusting the radius setting does.

just to be sure, have you take off the plastic film that was supposed to be removed before use?

Of course I have

hi, could you tell more detial, how unresponsive to multi-finger gestures?

I was struggling with the touchpad until late last night, especially with games and regular mouse stickiness. Go to the synaptics site and download the latest driver from there - don't use the ASUS version! The palm controls are in "Touch Properties" and by clicking the "pointing" menu option. There is a little icon to get to its control options. This made a huge difference for me, and as long as my testing continues to go well, I'm going to cancel an RMA.

It just works inconsistently with everything. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't I often have to swipe two or three times to get it to scroll or expand. It works fine with the smart detector off, but then I keep accidentally hitting the touchpad and moving the cursor.
