Trackpad not fluid

HP Envy 17t
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Trackpad movement is not fluid - sometimes the mouse arrow doesn't move , or moves very inconsistently, even when I move the finger accross it. In most occassions it works well, but sometimes it doesn't. HP Support Assistant is up to date, drivers updated, and Windows Update is up to date.

Hi Tardis

 

I don't think you understood my issue. It is not "How do I use the trackpad" - it's trackpad movement not fluid, as stated above. 

Also, not sure you've read my question. Cause in the end I said "drivers updated" - which is what you're suggesting I do in your message.

 

If you really want to be helpful, please refrain from using template answers, because they are just a waste of everyone's time.

 

Thanks

Hi @chryslerE,

 

I do understand the issue, but with any issue related to hardware it is always best to check the drivers first.

After confriming not a drive issue, then it is a computer performance issue.

 

Here are some documents to try.

Increasing System Performance and Maintaining Your Computer (Windows 10)

Computer Stops Responding or Becomes Very Slow after Connecting to the Internet (Windows 10, 😎

 

Hope this helps. Please get back to me.

I have a HP Envy 17t n000, with quad core i7 6th gen Intel processor, 12GB RAM, and an SSD disk, and you are seriously suggesting that the trackpad is not working because my computer is becoming slow when connecting to the internet?

 

Common man, get a grip. I won't be responding to such ridiculous suggestions anymore. Next thing you'll suggest to check if my monitor is on while I'm using the computer.

Have there been any updates to trackpad drivers? If not, when can I expect new version? Thanks

Provide the full model number please so we can check the driver update page. If there is no new driver there you might try synaptics itself as they will post the latest daily build beta drivers on their site.

Do you know the trackpad id or s/n? In device manager it only says Synaptics SMbus touchpad.

There is no serial number just for the trackpad. Right click on it in the device manager and select properties/details/hardware ID to get the device identifier and from that we can look out on the web for a newer driver. 

 

I had the same model laptop a while back and my biggest complaint was the trackpad. It never did feel like it was well made in my humble opinion. Also the keyboard had a little too much flex for me.

Hardware ID is SYN1EF8

Checked Synaptics website, they have an old version, 19.0.19, whereas HP pushed 19.2.4.0 few weeks back..where did you mention you were able to find beta drivers?

Touchpad experience on this laptop are by far the worst of all the laptops I ever owned..
