Lenovo P400 Ideapad: Unable to use keyboard/ touchpad at same time

Hey all, so I've been trying to play games without a mouse on my laptop but I can't use both the keyboard and the touchpad at the same time.  I've looked at other forums but unfortunately none of them seem to work for this specific model.  Does anyone have any suggestions on methods or drivers I could install?

hi bowlinger,


Welcome to the Forums!


Your issue might be similar to this thread.


If your PC came with a Synaptics Touchpad, try to:

1. Go to the Control Panel (large icon view) then > click Mouse > Device Settings tab > Settings. Under the Synaptics Settings, go to Pointing > Sensitivity > Palmcheck and set the palm sensitivity to minimum and test the game.

If you have an ELAN touchpad, try to:

2. Adjust the PalmTracking option under Additional Tab on the ELAN Smart Pad settings to the minimum and observe.

If the problem remains, consider removing the Touchpad driver under Control Panel (large icon view) > Programs and reboot.


Let me know how it goes.
