If you’re experiencing a problem with your Asus laptop‘s touchpad, there are a few things that you can do to fix the issue. Uninstall the touchpad driver is the first step to resolving the problem. To do so, open the Devices menu by pressing the Windows Key + I. Next, click on the Mouse option, and make sure that the Enable touchpad checkbox is blue.
Uninstalling the drivers for the touchpad
The first step in uninstalling the driver is to locate it in Device Manager. This can be found in the taskbar. Right-click on the touchpad and click “Update Driver Software.” If the driver is not available, you can download it from Windows. When you’ve done this, restart your PC to check for updates. Your touchpad should now work properly. If not, repeat steps two and three.
To update the driver, you need to know the model number of the touchpad. If you don’t know this, you can search Google. The model number is displayed on the label. Double-click the setup file to install the driver. Restart your PC to apply the changes. To uninstall the driver, you need to locate the device by right-clicking the Start menu and selecting “Control Panel.” Click on Device Manager and click the “Uninstall” option. You will see an Enabled device for Intel(R) Serial IO I2C Host Controller.
Update the driver
To enable or disable your touchpad in Windows 10, you must update the driver of your mouse. You can do this by following these simple steps:
First of all, go to the Control Panel and launch the troubleshooter. It will detect and fix driver issues. Click on the Troubleshooter tab and follow the steps given. Once done, your touchpad should function properly again. If the problem persists, you can try some of the other methods mentioned above. Try these first before you decide to replace the driver. However, you should be aware that a driver update may be needed depending on your computer model.
Next, run the driver update tool. It will scan for new updates and install the relevant driver updates for your touchpad. To check for updated drivers, go to the Start menu and select Check for Updates. Click Download and install any updates you find. Once completed, restart your computer to apply them. You may also find the touchpad driver update in the “View optional updates” section. After downloading the updated driver, you can restart your computer.
Checking whether the touchpad is disabled
If your touchpad isn’t working, you might be panicking! Before you try any troubleshooting steps, check whether your whole computer has frozen. Sometimes, this problem is the result of a BIOS update, or an unusual one-off glitch. In these cases, force-restarting your PC should fix the problem. Here are some easy ways to check if your touchpad is disabled.
Open the BIOS software on your ASUS laptop. Click on Advanced. You can find the touchpad driver under the Mice and Pointing Devices segment. Right-click the touchpad driver adapter, and then select Properties. In the Driver tab, click the Enable button. This action will enable your touchpad. If it still doesn’t work, check out your BIOS settings.
If you’ve updated your Windows 10 laptop, it’s very likely that your touchpad has stopped working. If so, uninstalling the touchpad driver may fix the problem. However, it’s not a permanent fix. To fix the issue, you can also manually install the latest touchpad driver. The patch for Windows 10 will soon be available for this issue. If your touchpad has been disabled for some time, it’s important to restore your computer to the point where it was working correctly.
Manually disabling the touchpad
The first step to disable the touchpad on an ASUS laptop is to open the Device Manager by pressing the Windows Key + X. In the Device Manager, look for the Touchpad driver. If it is there, right-click it and click Uninstall. Once it is removed, Windows will install a new touchpad driver. Then, restart your PC and your problem should be solved.
If the problem persists, you can update the driver. To do so, open the Device Manager (Windows’ taskbar) and click on the Touchpad driver. Right-click it and select Update Driver Software. Then, follow the instructions on the screen to install the driver. Depending on your OS, there may be more than one driver available. Once you’ve installed the latest driver, restart the computer and test its functionality.
