i'm having a bit of trouble trying to get my NP305E5A-A01US laptop to work while pressing keys. i've gone to control panel and looked through the mouse/elan touchpad's settings, but nothing i do will get it to work. help would be very much appreciated
My guess is that no one else have those problems. Atleast I don't. And it really doesn't feel like its a hardware issue either, so I am guessing you installed something that messed things up. Or perhaps changed some setting by misstake, but no idea which, since I've never seen or heard about anything like this before.
well this laptop is straight out of the box so i haven't installed anything that would affect this sort of thing. the thing is that i've googled this problem and on other computers there are simple, simple ways to fix this problem but i cannot find a way to do the same on my computer.
I'm having this problem too while playing games.
It seems to be an intended feature to stop the user dragging the mouse about while typing.
However the control panel settings for the current drivers I have (10.0.7.3)
don't seem to have an option to disable this (if there is, they have done a top job on hiding it).
Palm tracking should be enough, I feel this additional feature to disable all movement whilst any typing is taking place seems a bit much.
Could you link me to the place you acquired the alternative drivers or if that not allowed could you quote me what I should Google to find it, thanks in advance.
mine was "5dc" which is hexadecimal for 1500 or one and a half seconds.
I set it to 0 and rebooted and now I can hold down keys and continue to use the touch-pad.
I thought at first the registry entry "DisableWhenType_Enable" was the way to tackle this but changing this had no effect, this may be why we don't have a tick box for this option in our control panels yet. Hopefully they fix this and add this feature soon.
