IdeaPad Touchpad issue with auto-clicking/auto-selecting when moving mouse cursor

2015-07-18, 16:06 PM

Have had Y410p for years without this issue. Now when I move the mouse cursor across the screen, it auto clicks/auto selects (without me tapping or clicking) and then release automatically as well. It will do this continuously as I keep moving the mouse cursor with the Touchpad.

 

This is super annoying and causes multiple issues with my ability do most things on my Lenovo laptop. The two biggest problems are: click buttons which I do not intend and selecting/moving icons & screens which I do not intend. And it makes it nearly impossible to use the laptop for gaming.

 

I have downloaded and reinstalled the Touchpad ELAN driver (version 11.4.17.1 for my O/S Windows 8). I have gone through Mouse Properities setting and ELAN Smart-Pad settings. I have disabled Tapping, but does not make a difference. I have set Sensitivity to max Low and then max High, but does not make a difference.

 

Any ideas on how to solve this particularly annoying Touchpad issue? Help please! Thanks.

Disable TAPPING in the Synaptic control panel.

 

See the screen shot via the Device settings tab and properties. TAPPING is unchecked - a useless feature and a easy way to wreck and operating system and/or loose files. Its far too easy to tap drag and drop a folder or worst without realizing it until its too late. If its a system fie/folder you likely won't boot the next time or you kill an application.

 

I have been diabling this on notebooks for decades. DEADLY feature.

Thanks for the suggestion.    However  I have already tried disabling Tapping in the ELAN Smart-Pad settings (mentioned it in my original post).   And that did not resolve this annoying problem.    Any other ideas?  Anyone?

Then its impossible to tap the pad to select anything or bottons and links.

 

You have some other problem if thats the case. All I can say is double check the settings. Call Tech support as thats what they're suppose to be there for. This is an end user form not address by employees as an alternative to calling.
