There is so not so great advice about drivers but I can't tell if you have the touchpad app in the tray.
But if you are like most you find the thing to need more help such as a post it note covering the pad or something like touch freeze (free app that some like.)
There is no real design flaw here. It's supposed to respond to touch.
I bought this laptop in January and the touch pad is too sensitive but for some reason I've been unable to find where it can be adjusted in properties and other folders. Can anyone help me resolve this?
