Other / Sensitive Touch Pad
« Last post by Badheart on Today at 11:38:02 AM »
I bought a new Lenovo ideapad. I had one before. This one and the old one touch pad are so sensitive, some time it a pain. I have adjusted the sensitivity as high as it will go., it is still way to sensitive. If I hover over the pad, it will react. Is there any thing else that can be done? Thank You badheart

Hi Dave
On any of your worksheets click on the file tab. On the left click the options. (These are universal options affecting ALL worksheets) Select Advanced. In the editing options make sure ďAutomatically Insert Decimal Point" is Unchecked. This may solve your problem.

Hi

Do you have an HDMI cable and monitor or TV if so you could try it if when the internal display corrupts the external doesn't then it is the screen which is faulty.
I suspect the screen is the cause.

Thanks for the reply friend!

Yes, I already did that, and it was fine on the external monitor (TV) as mentioned in the post. I also thought it was the screen, but I started to doubt because I ran the DELL LCD Built In Self Test and there were no problems. Also the fact that when I left the Laptop off for days and powered it on, the issue didn't occur for a day added to my doubt.

What maed you rule out the GPU/RAM?

Don't have internet on my PC,  can I download a program to my phone then upload to my PC?

Once I had the same problem, I can help you with the Windows operating system.

First, connect your phone to the PC with a USB cable which will play a big role in transferring files.

Turn on your phone and unlock it. If the device is locked, your PC will not be able to locate the device.

If you plan to transfer multimedia files, you can also use the "transfer photo" option (sometimes listed as "PTP"), which will make your phone behave like a digital camera. Once you've made your selection, go to your desktop and open a File Explorer window using the method that makes the most sense for your Windows settings:

Click on the File Explorer icon on your taskbar.
Open the Start menu and click on this PC or computer.
Click on this PC, Computer, or My Computer icon on your desktop
Then look for the icon that represents your phone with other portable devices and drives. Click on that icon or double click on it. Now you can click and navigate, drag and drop folders between your phone and PC, or manipulate data in any way.

Instead of selecting General, select Number.  It will then allow you to decide how many decimal places to use.  If you only want the number and no decimal places, set the number of decimal places to 0.  Additionally, you could select custom and then use 0 as the pattern which means no decimal places.
I tried that with no success. The only thing that works is if I select the cell with a number in it and select "Replace" and enter the same number with no decimal point. It's also strange why changing one method in a worksheet will change the method in another worksheet.

It may very well be the panel.  Is the laptop under warranty?  If so, contact Dell and let them fix it.

There are quite a few vendors selling replacement panels on Ebay.  Is your touch or non-touch?  It is a relatively easy fix to switch out the panel.

Hello!

Thanks for the reply.

What do you mean exacty by 'panel'? Also, there are some details I forgot to add that I think are worth noting. I ran the DELL LCD Bulit in Self Test and there were no problems.
