Re: touchpad going crazy

Go into Control Panel and find the Icon for the touchpad/mouse.There should be settings there to adjust sensitivity.

Re: touchpad going crazy

Different HP laptops have different ways to get to Control Panel...touchpad. In my case the touchpad/cursor were going really crazy. I RAN  "touchpad" and it first reported that the touchpad was working properly; then it updated the driver. I thought everything was all right when I started commenting here but it did it again, the cursor and pad went completely crazy.  It had worked well for a while after the driver update, though. I will have to test if for a while since the laptop is just two days old. I could not find how to adjust the settings for sensitivity, will have to work on that next.
