Mouse is lagging

Hey there! @Hillan, Thank you for joining the HP Forums!

 

I understand you have touchpad issues with your laptop.

 

Don't worry I'd like to help you out.

 

Did you make any software or hardware changes on your laptop?

 

Please provide the product number of your PC to assist you better.

 

As you mentioned the mouse pointer is lagging when you use the touchpad on your PC.

 

Try the steps recommended bleow.

 

Open Settings and go to Devices > Mouse & touchpad. Scroll down to the bottom of the screen and click Additional mouse options.

The Mouse Properties window will open. Click the tab that lists labeled ELAN or Device Settings, where you'll see your touchpad listed under Devices. Click on the touchpad to select it and then click Enable. 

On the Mouse Properties windows, click the Pointer Options tab and play around with the slider for Select a pointer speed until you find a speed you can work with. You can also speed up or slow down the double-click speed; the slider for this setting can be found on the Buttons tab.

 

Try uninstalling the touchpad drivers from device manager and install the latest touchpad drivers using HP support assistant and check if it helps.

 

Refer this article to know more information about using HP support assistant.

 

If the issue still persists uninstall the touchpad drivers from device manager and install the drivers using HP recovery manager.

 

Refer this article to know how to restore drivers using HP recovery manager.

 

Also, try running a system diagnostics on your PC and check if the hardware components on your PC are functioning correctly.

 

Refer this article to know more information about running system diagnostics on your PC.

Mouse is lagging

Hi Mr Robot!

I´m so glad to here that you will try to help me!

 

First; the "pointer" is is not only lagging when using the touchpad, the same happends when I´m using a external mouse.

Product number: F9V32EA#UUW

And, yes I did hav problems with my HDMI-port not working, so I got help on this side (HP Support). The HDMI now works fine, but the the pointer started to lag. I can not be sure there is a connection, but that is what I beleve. What I did to solve the problem with the HDMI was to follow your advise: 

 "....so click on the following link download the graphics driver and try checking if it works.

 

http://support.amd.com/en-us/download/mobile?os=Windows%207%20-%2032"

 

There were 3 files to chose from, I did install: "Crimson ReLive Edition 17.7.2" and, as I said, HDMI now works fine, but...

 

Hopefull Hillan

@Hillan, It's great to great to hear from you again.

 

I appreciate your efforts for trying out the steps.

 

As you mentioned the pointer freezes when you use an external mouse to too.

 

Did you update the touchpad drivers from HP support assistant?

 

Try updating the BIOS and touchpad drivers on your PC and check if it helps.

 

Also, uninstall the touchpad drivers from device manager and install the latest touchpad drivers.

Mouse is lagging

Hi again!

May be this is to complecated for me (I'm in thermodynamics not in the computerbusiness)

In the instruction you sent the other day you asked me to "open settings" but I can't find anything called settings!? therefore I can not find "additional mouse options"either. I also

Then you sent me a link to a article about running a system diagnostic, but that seems clear to refeer to windows 10! Maybe also the "setting" you talk about is something in windows 10? I have Windows 7 32 bit!

Is it really safe to uninstall thethe touchpad? If I do, how can I then cominicate with the computer with no driver at all to the touchpad?

 

I'm so happy you are trying to help, but I need real "hands on"  windows 7 advice. Please give it another try.

@Hillan, Thanks for your quick response and time.

 

Thanks for writing back to us.

 

As you mentioned you are not sure to find the settings on your PC.

 

I would suggest you contact HP phone support they should be able to take remote of your PC and reinstall the touchpad drivers.

 

Also, if you uninstall the touchpad drivers from your PC, plug an external mouse to your PC and reinstall the touchpad drivers.

 

Link to contact HP.

 

 

Hope this helps!

Have a great day ahead! 🙂

Hello again!

 

I have installed latest drivers as you suggested but unfortunatly the problem remaind. I also tried different speeds on the pointer, but the problem remained. Then I added  "display pointer trail" and the lagging dissappeared!

I'm happy! Thank you for your patience.

 

🙂 Hillan

Thanks! This would have been the last thing I tried, but switching on mouse-trail solved the issue.
