Guidelines to Resolve issues with touchpad in HP G62t series
HP G62t series laptop consists of Intel Core i3 processor, 2 to 4 GB memory, 250 to 500 GB hard drive and 15.6 inches HD display. System contains a synaptic touchpad with two buttons. Touchpad is a pointing device that can be used instead of a mouse. Touchpad acts as a sensor that senses the movement of a user’s finger and navigates the cursor on the screen according to the finger position. The key features of touchpad include hand check, virtual scrolling, tap zones and edge motion. Just like other devices in the laptop, touchpad also needs driver software to work. Any problem with touchpad driver software might lead to its improper functioning.
Some of the issues that can come in touchpad software in HP G62t series and their resolving tips are described below:
- Missing ‘Advanced Tab’
- Enabled Touchpad Not Working
- Bad Sensing and Lagging problem
Missing ‘Advanced Tab’
‘Advanced’ tab option is used for setting the features of the touchpad in your system. Sometimes it might be missing in the mouse settings. In this case, you need to uninstall the touchpad driver. It might be because of the installation problem of the touchpad driver. After restarting the computer system you can install the driver software again.
Enabled Touchpad Not Working
Sometimes your touchpad might stop working suddenly and the use of function key also does not help in solving this problem. By checking the settings, you will find that the touchpad is enabled. Then you need to uninstall and reinstall both Alps Touchpad Driver and Synaptic Pointing Device driver in HP G62t series. After reinstalling you need to restart the computer system to verify the functioning of touchpad.
Sometimes your touchpad might show lagging problems or it might not navigate the cursor properly. When you drag any folder or file it might show a delay. This might be the problem of corrupted or outdated driver software. You need to upgrade the device driver to a latest version. You can search for new versions at HP Product and service website.
