Introduzione

The touchpad (or also known as trackpad) is an essential component of a laptop and tracks the motion and position of a user’s fingers to a position on the screen. A functioning touchpad is important to the portability of a laptop, and if your touchpad is unresponsive, you may need to use an external mouse to use your device. A failing touchpad may exhibit the following symptoms:

  • Cursor isn’t responding to touchpad movements.

  • Cursor is jumping to every movement.
