Cursor automatically moving down when I connect a PS4 controller? Cant play games

HP Omen 17-an018na
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Dear all,


My product number is: 2CS52EA#ABU


My keypad works fine when using it normally, but when I try to play a game like Fifa and connect a PS4 controller either with a wire or without and I go into the game, the controller does work but the laptop does not know whether to use the mouse pad or the controller, and the mouse cursor is automatically and constally going downwards but only when its in a game? When I am online or in Windows the cursor and pad are fine.


How do I just use the controller when I am within a game or how do I stop the cursor doing its own thing like that when in a game?

Thank you for posting your query on HP Community,


Let's start off by updating the Bios, Chipset, touchpad and graphics card drivers on your PC either from our HP support website, using this link or download it using HP Support Assistant. 


I suggest you download and run the HP Support Assistant from this Link:


HPSA will automatically search for all the latest drivers for your Notebook


  1. Click My devices in the top menu, and then click Updates in the My PC or My notebook pane.

    Click Updates in the My notebook pane

  2. Click Check for updates and messages to scan for new updates.

     Updates list in HP Support Center

  3. Review the list of updates. Updates with a yellow information icon are recommended. Updates with a blue information icon are optional.

  4. Click the update name for a description, version number, and file size.

  5. Select the box next to any updates you want to install, and then click Download and install.

Also ensure Windows is up to date.


Select the Start  button, and then go to Settings  > Update & security  > Windows Update , and select Check for updates. If Windows Update says your device is up to date, you have all the updates that are currently available


Keep me posted how it goes


Thank you and have a wonderful weekend
