What is a touchpad?
A touchpad is a device embedded on the surface of the notebook system, which is designed to translate the inputs in the form of sensitive finger motions which will result in the movement of the cursor on the screen of the system. A touch ad is designed as an alternative to the conventional wired mouse used in the earlier systems.
Jumping Pointer Issue
One of the issues related to the touchpad in the HP Pavilion dm3z series, is the jumping pointer issue. In this case, the pointer jumps continuously from any point to the corner of the screen every time it is made to touch an item on the screen. This problem of the pointer on the HP Pavilion dm3z series can be resolved by updating the driver related to the touchpad. In the meantime, the user can use the USB mouse to compensate for the touchpad.
Sometimes, there is a pointer lag on the HP Pavilion dm3z series, where whenever the user types something on MS word or any other writing pad, the cursor follows later, taking some time to move, and sometimes it completely ceases to move. This might be a result of the either slow processing or the incompatibility between the touchpad driver software and the Windows operating system. During the software updates, the Windows Update sometimes recommends the default driver update for the touchpad, which is inefficient for the proper functioning and creates a conflict with the original driver of the touchpad. It is advised that the user first disables the touchpad from the ‘Device Manager’ and then again installs the new/fresh compatible driver from the original manufacturer.
Sometimes, when the user starts the HP Pavilion dm3z series system, the scroll pad behaves as if it is damaged and stops responding to any sensation from the user on the touchpad. There can be a chance that the touchpad might have automatically got disabled or turned off from the start-up programs list and has to be enabled again by navigating to the ‘Device Manager’ from the ‘Control Panel’.
