Touchpad has mind of it's own on hp 17-by3613dx

HP Recommended
hp 17-by3613dx
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

The touchpad is way too sensitive, even on the lowest sensitivity setting. It changes the size of my screen on it's own, the cursor sometimes doesn't move at all, it randomly clicks things on it's own, and it's very difficult to control. I try to move the cursor one way and it fights me on moving, like it doesn't want to go anywhere. I've tried all the settings and updated the drivers and this still happens. This has been an ongoing issue ever since I got this laptop and I have no idea how to fix it. It literally feels like someone else is controlling my mouse at all times.

Welcome to HP Community

 

I have gone through your Post and would like to help

 

I suggest you download and run the HP Support Assistant from this Link: https://www8.hp.com/us/en/campaigns/hpsupportassistant/hpsupport.html?jumpid=va_r602_us/en/any/psg/p...

 

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 day 😊

I've run all the updates and also uninstalled and reinstalled the drivers. I ran a diagnostic test as well and nothing has helped. The touchpad is too sensitive even at the lowest setting. The cursor jumps all around the screen and changes the zoom on it's own.

Do you experience the same problem when running the Touchpad Test from F2 Diagnostics?

 


- Hold the power button for at least five seconds to turn off the Notebook.
- Turn on the computer and immediately press Esc repeatedly, about once every second. 
- When the menu appears, press the F2 key.
- On the main menu, click Component Tests and Touchpad

Yes I experience it there as well. It moves way too fast to even complete the task and when I do manage to get to the box the slightest movement will send the cursor flying off somewhere else.

Can someone please just mail me a box like I was told HP support would do? I have to send this in for repair and I don't have time to take it anywhere. i'd rather ship it back and have it repaired and sent back to me.
