I have a problem on my laptop running Windows 8: I can't disable TouchPad Edge Swipes, so everytime i accidentally swipe on my TouchPad, Charms Bar pops up. I've disabled it using Start8 start menu, but the program cannot prevent it from popping up when using the TouchPad. I've also read Brink's tutorial (How to enable or disable touchpad edge swipes on Windows 8), but the problem is i don't have an 'Enable Edge Swipes' button on the driver's settings window (i think it's because i have a different laptop).
My laptop model is Sony Vaio VPCSE1E1E. I have installed the latest TouchPad driver from VAIO Support's website.
I updated on my Asus K750JN laptop the Nvidia and Intel drivers from the Asus site and following that my Touchpad looses its settings every time the laptop goes to sleep / logoff / or reboots.
Then I removed the Touchpad driver from the Device mgr and try to re install it but I get this message: "There is a problem with this window installer package. A program run as part of the setup did not finish as expected. Contact your support personnel"
I downloaded the Touchpad driver again from Asus but get the same message. How can I re install this driver?
Recently, I have a hybrid laptop (Lenovo Yoga 2 13). It recognizes my different laptop positions, so the keyboard is disabled when I rotate the screen.
But when I use it in laptop mode (using regular keyboard to type), I still get the touch keyboard on screen when I touch the screen on a writing field. How can I disable the touch keyboard if I use the tablet in laptop mode?
current versions of Jump Desktop for iOS and xtralogic remote desktop for android is that they allow you to switch the touchscreen to touchpad mode, and then control the pointer with the screen like a touchpad instead of having to hit something with your fingertip. This great for when you need a precise pointer, or for controlling the cursor from a corner without having to release your grip on the device, but in addition to that, on Windows 8 I could also see potentially using this to control a second monitor (like a TV) with your touch monitor (say the newly announced wireless lenovo monitor connected to a windows 8 HTPC).
I don't have windows 8 yet, but I was wondering if there was any such utility for windows 8 currently or in development. If the thin and light wifi monitor idea takes off, it would be great for an HTPC - you could play video on the TV while browsing or such on the tablet, yet you would only have to have and use one computer.
For photographers and artists you could use the USB3 version of the display or small touch capable cintiq on your desk in front of you, pushing your keyboard and mouse out of the way, but with a quick mode switch you could still control your main monitor without shuffling things around (something I've found frustrating when switching between a traditional wacom tablet and keyboard - something is always out of easy reach). Of course that also assumes you could still bring up the on screen keyboard on the touch display.
I want to remove dell touchpad permanently from my inspiron 17r 5721 OS: windows8
The darn thing jumps all over while typing and it has made me not even want to use my computer it is so obnoxious. It deletes my typed info and opens windows ...
I tried to remove and uninstall but it just keeps putting it back on and refuses to stay closed. I have tried to reduce sensitivity and do everything recommended to resolve this by adjusting through the driver / device manager/ etc.... right now I have it fully uninstalled and it is still running! what the heck can i do?
Windows 8 user. Is there a way to reverse the one finger scrolling on a new laptop? I reversed it for the two finger scrolling in the touchpad settings but there wasn't a similar checkbox for the one finger.
I bought a ASUS K450jf last week, with windows 8, and last night I updated it to windows 8.1.
I the start panel, the touchpad has a oversensitivity that is completely annoying. I'm just moving the cursor from one side to the other and it opens up the app in which i lift my fingers from the touchpad, or even completely random apps, with more incidence in the xbox music thing or the bing news.
I bought one of these Logitech Touch Lapdesk N600 Review | Everything USB It has a slide out touchpad and it is really really good as it is big -- BUT -- I can't get it to do the swipe from the edge thing to slide out the Charms bar (if that's what it is called) Of course I can use the keyboard to slide the bar out, but I'd like to be able to use the trackpad. The built in trackpad on the laptop does it, so I don't think it is unreasonable to expect the N600 to do that too. Or is it?
I have tried the "latest" software but that has made no difference.
how to make this happen or is there a better USB/WiFi trackpad I can get that does?
So far I am extremely happy with my Asus table and Windows 8.1. Everything I have tried to do was simple and easy except one thing. Since for some (stupid reason IMO) reason few of the Windows tablets have the GPS enabled the ME400C included so i am forced to use a Bluetooth GPS. But I have found few maps that are off line. I have tried about every app I can find and the most promising was HERE that has offline maps but it doesn't seem to support the GPS, at least I haven't been able to get it to see my BT GPS. Any good combination of the works with a Bluetooth GPS and has offline maps?
I reinstalled my 8.1 pro (legal copy, disk been fully formatted) and it was okay for few hours. Next time im starting the laptop, my keyboard and touchpad doesnt work. I plugged USB mouse and keyboard and it works just fine. I went to device manager and besides Standart PS/2 keyboard and mouse icons there was orange triangle meaning that i have problem with drivers. I searched drivers online, but unsuccsessily.. After few hours of trying to fix it, my Standart PS/2 Keyboard turned into Unknown device and now im completely lost. Adding photo of device manager
I have a Asus VivioTab ME400C. I am trying to instal Microsoft Autoroute onto my tablet. I have tried over the network from my desktop using the /a option to install over a network (which Autoroute Demands). But when I try to instal Autoroute from the transferred code it demand disk 2 be inserted but fails to recognise it.
There must be a way of installing programs from a CD/DVD on Windows 8.
I tried copying the CD's to SD drives but no luck. Also tried moving the install code to one directory.
The annoying thing is I did this last week but later the SD card failed.
I tried to go to the display settings page to enlarge the font and apps size under "("change the size of apps, text and other items..") in PC settings of Windows 8, and was greeted by this message: "Your Resolution is lower than 1280x900 Some items might not fit on your screen" and the "more options" section with "change the size of apps, text items" is disabled. I checked twice, my resolution is the T100 native 1368x768, so why does windows 8.1 think its something else? also tried switching to a lower resolution and back again, rebooting, etc. I also tried downloading and installing all Windows updates and Asus updates.
attached is the screenshot showing Windows 8 both showing the correct resolution and complaining that it is not on the correct resolution.
My BT keyboard is no longer discoverable by my ASUS Vivotab ME 400C.
Seemed to suddenly stop working after a couple of incidents where a letter would be repeated 1 hundred times. (i.e. "eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee" for "e")
The keyboard was recognized by my Blackberry and is working.
I went to Windows Support section and it said to go to PC Settings/Devices/Bluetooth and turn Bluetooth on, but I was unable to locate a place to turn Bluetooth off or on.
I went into Device ManagerBluetoothBluetooth Radio and found status "Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems (Code 43)."
This may have occurred quite shortly after I installed an ASUS BIOS update, but I think it was a couple of days at least. I installed Windows 8.1 when it was initially released and had problems with SDBUS shutting down the tablet. The BIOS update fixed that.
I checked the Driver on the Bluetooth radio and it says it's the best one for the device.
I thought maybe I should uninstall/re-install the driver but I've never done this. That is I don't know if the Bluetooth icon will disappear altogether or something wierd.
I have made a System Image & a Custom Recovery Image on my Asus Vivotab but I cannot get the system to recognize them on a USB Hard Drive.
I got into this by testing the Refresh Custom Recovery Image. The system did not find the image as the system allocated a different drive letter so I have basic Refresh. I have found my way to the Administrator Command but cannot find RECIMG on either the x: or C: drives. Do I need a Path Command from System32?
I also have a System image on a USB Hard Drive but cannot get the system to find it. I have tried putting the files folders in the root directory but the system still does not recognise them.
My tablet is running fine, but I did something (not bright) which could leave me in a lurch later. Here's what I did, and what I'm looking for.
Soon after I purchased my Asus VivoTab Smart, I made a USB recovery disk, complete with recovery partition. Then, to save disk space on the tablet, I deleted the recovery partition on the tablet. So far, so good. Where I blew it was when I got my flash drives mixed up and then erased my USB recovery disk! The tablet runs fine, but if I ever want to refresh it or do a reset, I need the recovery partition, either on the tablet or on a flash drive.
I have a ASUS 360 notebook touchscreen with Windows 8. Somehow when using the internet the screen has gotten stuck being Zoomed in all the way. I've tried using the touchscreen to undo the zoom but that doesn't work. When I open up the internet in the desktop mode the screen is normal size. How to undo the zoomed.
I bought the Asus Zenbook Touch (ux31a-bhi5t11) yesterday, and the 2 finger scrolling worked fine at first, but a couple hours later it just stopped working. I can scroll using the touch screen, but not the touch pad now. It's brand new, and I haven't touched any of the settings, so I don't know why it would just quit.
I installed windows 8.1 in clean mode . now I want to reset to factory default but I have not backuped media. but I have recovery partition but I can not build recovery disk because when I use"create recovery drive" wizard I can not select " copy the recovery partition from the pc to the recovery drive" because it is inactive.
I want got a Asus ux31 touch in black, and simply love it. There is one thing though, I am to be able to disable the touchscreen because I have heard that there is a very large increase in battery life when you do that. I am just wondering because I went to control panel-hardware and printing devices-pen and touch but there is not option to disable the touchscreen. Is there any program that will do this for you because I heard you can increase the battery life by one hour by doing this.
I have an Asus Transformer Book t100 and I have a problem with auto rotation. It stopped working and the buttons that switch it on/off (in the settings menu, the resolution menu) disappeared. I tried reinstalling the system and it worked but then the problem came back after about 30 minutes. I dont feel like reinstalling it whenever the problem appears.
