    G74SX trackpad is slowly killing me on the inside

    I know this sounds like a broken record, but I need some help. Ive checked the forum, but didnt find my answer.

    My FN+DISABLE PAD doesnt work. The FN key does work, because I can use every other option. volume, brightness, keyboard backlight etc etc, but no disable trackpad

    I updated the trackpad to 9.1 I believe and that didnt help.

    The problem is 1, cant use FN key. 2, the trackpad makes the cursor jump all over the screen and it makes typing impossible. Ive had to correct this post alone 11 times.

    I cant go into > control panel > mouse > finger pad >CONFIG -- it wont let me in the sentelic config to mess with it

    is the best way to just uninstall the trackpad driver???


    thanks!!!!

    ok i found this one

    If none of the above solutions work for your brand of laptop, try TouchPad Pal – it’s a free Windows utility that will temporarily disable the touchpad of your laptop as you go into typing mode. The utility runs in the system tray and requires no configuration.

    Finally, if you would like to get rid of the touchpad completely, you can consider disabling it through the BIOS itself. The exact path that you need to follow to reach the Pointing Devices section in your BIOS may however vary for different laptops.

    http://download.cnet.com/1770-20_4-0...form%3DWindows

    try downloading any of the programs they are free it will disable your touch pad.
    if it works great if not i will check for any solution.

    I installed the touchpad pal. I'll have to use for a while and see if it really works. I'm trying to type a lot to see if it messes up. the popup window that says "click blocked" is very annoying though.


    also, touchpad pal doesnt work, as I am still having the same problem

    I appreciate the reply

    See if this works:
    Uninstall your driver, restart then reinstall the driver again. Go to your touchpad settings and make sure you dont have the "disable mousepad automatically when usb mouse is detected" checked. (that option has been buggy even with the older g73 models.

    Is there a checkbox to uncheck for just the touchpad in msconfig start up ?

    (click the start button and type msconfig in the search box).c.

    Check out this post: http://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread...l=1#post117372 to confirm you have a Sentelic touchpad and how to cleanly install the 9.1.7.7 driver if you do.

    The G74SX ships with both Sentelic and Synaptics touchpads. Failure to disable is a symptom of installing the wrong driver. Driver remnants from past uninstallations may also cause problems.

    You still could have a defective touchpad after all. A poor grounding method used on G74SX touchpads is known to cause erratic cursor movement during normal use (not while typing) , and could possibly damage the touchpad over time.

    @chrsplmr, in my msconfig, the finger sensing pad is unchecked and it wont stay checked after reboot. Ive tried that for a few days.

    @dstrakele, im triying your post. Uninstalling finger sensing pad (sentelic) and reinstall -- gotta reboot

    For the moment touchfreeze from google is helping




    after reboot and further reading of that thread
    " Then launch Device Manager, expand "Mice and other pointing devices", right-click on the touchpad device and choose "Properties" from the popup menu. "

    I dont have that option in device manager
    >Mice and pointer
    L__HID Compliant Mouse
    L__PS/2 Compatible mouse

    my touchpad is working, so something is installed

    awesome

    got the config back. I enabled the setting that disabled the touchpad when an mouse is plugged in. so now i shouldnt have to worry about it.

    no more problems and FN+F9 works again!!!
