Thinkpad W530 Touchpad freezes

2016-04-21, 19:52 PM

Hi,

 

I have a Thinkpad W530, i7-3820QM CPU @2.70GHz, RAM 16.0GB, 64-bit.

 

I installed Windows 10 and for most part I didn't have any issues

 

However, over the last weeks I have been having issues with my Touchpad.  It basically freezes, in many cases if I am inputing something and I press enter, it stops responding.  Trackpoint works but Touchpad is just unresponsive.  Then in 10/15 seconds is back working.


Any ideas how I can fix this? I have all the drivers/updates installed.

 

Thanks!!!

Hello and welcome,

 

I don't have a similar setup to examine but this sounds like it might be an extreme palmcheck setting.

 

Can't tell you where to find it but hopefully another member will chime in.  My WAG would be mouse properties somewhere.

 

Sorry I can't give you a direct answer,

Z.

Hello all, I need a solution to this. Exact laptop W530 and the same thing happens. this is not a palm block issue as it happens mid scrolling also.

Same thing happening with me... crazy annoying. To get Touchpad to work again, you must not touch it for approximately 5 seconds. Happens at a fairly high frequency, at least 1/15minutes.

To note:

 

I had this issue before upgrading to Win 10.

This may solve it: 

 

There's a setting called "Prioritize for Trackpoint..." in PalmCheck of Touchpad settings. I haven't had the problem since I unchecked it.
