  2. Deleted Elan touchpad from Device Manager


    Hey guys,

    I updated to windows 10 and when i am gaming i prefer to put my touchpad(from Elan) OFF but i couldnt it kept making me move in different positions in the game when i accidently made contact with it . The shortcutkey of disable/enable didnt work since i updated to windows 10 apparently it was a drivers problem so i went to Device Manager and clicked on the touchpad everything was greyed out so i deleted it from my device manager. I restarted my laptop and the touchpad didnt work which is good but i also want to use it sometimes just for the fun of it.

    Later when i went to the new touchpad driver from Elan i downloaded it and tried to install it and it said i need to go to configuration screen -> programs and delete it from there. I didnt knew this... did i do something wrong now? i am about to delete that old Elan driver program from programs right now but i fear that i shouldnt have deleted the touchpad in the device manager...

    Old program from Programs- I cant delete, a pop up shows up that says i am about to delete it but it wont... gonna restart laptop.

    Edit: When i try to delete it doesnt do anything... is it because i deleted my touchpad from Device Manager and thats why it cant be removed or something? or did i actually did the right thing?


    UPDATE: After restarting my touchpad worked again so i assume it appears back automatically into the device manager. I could finally delete my old elan touchpad software now from Programs, i will need to restart but i cant be asked now since i restarted 2 times already. 2morow i will see if i can enable/disable my touchpad.

    cheers

    Touchpad driver issue after Windows 10 Upgrade.

    Original title : Touchpad Driver.

    My Touchpad has stopped working after installing windows10. The touchpad driver is not listed under device manager but I have installed the ELAN touchpad for windows 10 that I downloaded from my device Manufacturer's website. I am using a Packard Bell EasyNote
    EN TG71MB. Even under Programs and Features the ELAN Touchpad driver is not listed. Any suggestion please???

    Elan touchpad

    To follow up on this issue, here are a few other things you can try:

    -Press Windows Key + X to open Win + X menu and select Control Panel from the list.

    -When Control Panel opens, go to Hardware and Soundsection and select Mouse.

    -When Mouse settings window opens, you should see ELANor Device Settings tab. Switch to it.

    -Locate Disable internal pointing device when external USB pointing device is attached option and enable it.

    -Click Apply and OK to save changes.

    If that doesn't work or isn't available, a registry edit should be the solution for us, I'd personally suggest a registry backup by clicking on file and export before performing the below steps, to be on a safer side:

    Open Registry Editor and go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/Elantech/Othersetting/DisableWhenDetectUSBMousekey in the left pane.

    Change the value from 0 to 1 and close Registry Editor.

    After making those changes your touchpad will now be disabled every time you connect a mouse to your laptop. As you can see, even though this option isn’t available, you can still enable it by following these steps. We have to mention that this solution applies
    only if you’re using ELAN touchpad.
