Thinkpad Yoga S1 Touchpad Problem- cursor bouncing back

Hello. I just received a Thinkpad Yoga S1 and I love it but the one problem is that the touchpad is not very accurate. Whenever I try to move the cursor on the touchpad it bounces back a little from the direction it came with the distance of the bounceback depending on how fast I move the cursor. It's not a huge deal but nonetheless annoying. I am not sure if it is a driver problem or a problem with just my device. Just need a little input and/or solutions from the community.

 

Thank you!

I tried the above mentioned help, but there is still the problem of the cursor moving back when using the touchpad. The problem is gone when using a mouse or the trackpoint though.

Hi AndyJung,

 

I am sorry to hear that the issue is still persisting, please check with uninstalling the UltraNav application from Control panel – Program & feature option and restart the system, after booting windows will install generic drivers for your touchpad check with that.

 

Hope this helps!

 

Best regards,

Hemanth Kumar

Re: Thinkpad Yoga S1 Touchpad Problem- cursor bouncing back

A little late here but I just got a Yoga 2 Pro and had the same problem. Disabling "Enable Tapping" in the Synaptics touchpad settings fixed it for me. It looks like it's a cursor safety option they added to it that went horribly wrong--if the touch is small, it's assuming you meant to tap so it adjusts the cursor (the bouncing that happens).

Re: Thinkpad Yoga S1 Touchpad Problem- cursor bouncing back

Please remove the 'Solved' marker from this thread. This issue has NOT been resolved.

 

The 'bounce' appears to be a 'feature'. It appears to be hardwired into the trackpad on my Thinkpad T440s and there doesn't seem to be any way to turn it off in software.

 

Just to be clear, this isn't related to a 'jumping' or 'erratic' cursor. It is the pointer bouncing back just a few pixels as you stop moving your finger across the trackpad. As if to 'help' users who overshoot the point where they meant to stop. It does not help those of us who are experienced using a trackpad and have no problem being accurate. It's just a hindrance.

 

I have sought to resolve this issue before with Lenovo but nobody seems to have any idea how to remove this unwanted feature.

Re: Thinkpad Yoga S1 Touchpad Problem- cursor bouncing back

Sent my Garbage(tpy s1) in 3 times. No fix. They replaced everything but the touch screen.
I've had the erratic mouse cursor on Windows 8, 8.1, and Windows 7 Pro...with and without antivirus installed.  I'm currently running W7 Pro and discovered a work around.
I go into Device Manager-System Devices and I disable then reenable Synaptics SMBus Driver.  It stops the erratic cursor immediately and everything works just fine....?
Anyway. that's what works for mine.  Too bad Lenovo can't fix it.
I steer EVERYONE AWAY from ANYTHING LENOVO.
