I bought a lenovo g50-70 laptop in february. Just after using it for few weeks I started noticing some problem with the touchpad. Each time I am working for a while, the touchpad starts doing weird functions , like starts detecting multiple fingers, zoom in and out, doesnt move at all, and also the tap to click doesnt work.. It persists for 2-3 mins and then starts functioning normally again.
I have tried setting the sensitivity high and low, disabling multi touch functions and all other settings but the problem comes back in a day or two.
I have also tried reinstalling the touchpad driver 3-4 times but the problem comes back again in 1 or two days of normal functioning. I have the latest driver installed right now , before there was an older version of it.. Problem persisted on both drivers.
If i connect an external mouse it works fine always no problem at all. But I want the touchpad to work normally as i have to use it several times i cant take the mouse with me everywhere...
I have found several reports of this problem on this forum and none of the solutions work.. Kindly take a deeper look into this matter and provide a valuable solution for it.

I'm having the exact same problems. Every few hours the touchpad seems to have a mind of its own and the cursor will not respond or do what I want. It's really annoying because it closes things accidently when I try to take contol.
I'm now going to return it to Lenovo so they can sort it out under warranty. There clearly is a problem and they haven't fixed it despite all the people having similar issues. It's really annoying that I will have no laptop for a few days but there is absolutely no way I'm going to persevere with this problem any longer.

Glad it's not just me.
Completely random, and it will also start working again properly completely randomly.
Latest drivers installed, windows (Windows10) up-to-date. But does it before and after windows updates, so not related to that. Wonder if it's more likely to be the Lenovo hardware implementation than a software problem? In which case Lenovo will never admit a problem.

for me it is the same, on a g50-80
I immediately press f6 buttono to temporaly disable it and then enabling again......when you do this it starts working fine again........but I agree with you guys, that is not a normal behaviour of a working hardware.....
hope lenovo will fix it soon.....hoping it is a matter of software and not poor hardware.....
