ENVY Quad Laptop, Windows 8, Can't Left Click While Pressing Another Key

Hello Everyone-

 

I just received my new laptop last night (ENVY Quad, Windows 8 Pro, 16GB Memory, Intel 7 CPU) and I had similar issues as others while trying to play online games. I was able to go into the touchpad controls and remove the settings that stopped me from using the pad while while pressing another key.

 

The issue I now have is that while pressing another key to 'walk' in my online game; I cannot get a response from the pad to perform a 'left mouse click'. Essentially I can choose to use my keyboard OR click my mouse.

 

Also, it seems to take a moment or two to realise I stopped using my keyboard before allowing a mouse click.

 

Any ideas on a setting I can change to allow simultaneous Mouse-clicks and keyboard usage? or is this a defect in my system?

 

Thanks!

I understand you are having issue with the mouse click. If you disable the pad it will stop the functions all together.

 

Here is a document on a TouchPad pointing device with a touch-sensitive surface.

Hope this helps with settings.

 

Thanks.
