    Part of mousepad is nonresponsive at certain times?


    This started happening a few months ago, but basically the top portion of my mousepad (everything above the spots you can click) will randomly become unresponsive, so that only the bottom part works. I found that if I put the laptop to sleep and turn back on it will usually fix it, but it will eventually do it again. Either that or I wait about 5 minutes and it works again. Originally I thought the mousepad was just defective, but the fact that it fixes after putting it to sleep, and that it works half of the time, makes me think it could be a software issue. Has anyone else experienced this problem? The laptop is a Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E590.

  4. Part of mousepad is nonresponsive at certain times?

    Mousepad disabled

    Hi,

    My mouse pad is not working anymore. My laptop does not have the "toggle" everyone talks about, so I don't know what happened or how to fix it.

    When I go to the mousepad settings, it does not show me any option to turn it on or off.

    I've also seen suggestions to use F6 or F12, but those don't work either.

    Any other suggestions?

    Thanks.
