Hi, touchpad on sony vaio VPCEB4JOE laptop does not work. have been trying to fix this for 3 weeks, and have read all sorts of forums but no luck so far. have done following installed Alps lates driver from sony website. tried synpatics method - as mentioned on internet tried windows defender disabling and vaio care method. no luck so far...It works fine listed as PS2 mouse as long as windows are not updated...as soon as windows is updated it stopped working every tim. it works fine in safe mode..this makes me think its to do with one of the windows updates causing the problems... does any one have come across this problem? any fix for it. Thanks
Please verify the model name again because VPCEB4JOE isn't recognized as a valid North American model. However, for this touchpad issue, I would recommend you to try the following steps first.
Click the Start button, then click VAIO Control Center . NOTE: Earlier models may refer to the application as VAIO Support Central instead of VAIO Control Center . In the VAIO Control Center window, click the Categories tab. On the Categories tab, click the Plus (+) symbol next to Keyboard and Mouse . Under Keyboard and Mouse , double-click Built-in Pointing Device . In the Built-in Pointing Device window, make sure the Enable box is checked. Click the OK button. In the Built-in Pointing Device dialog box, click the Yes button.
Also there are some VAIO® notebooks include a feature that allows disabling of the touchpad by pressing the Fn+F1 buttons on the built-in keyboard. Try holding down the Fn key and press the F1 key to see if the touchpad is re-enabled.
