A touch pad is a device for pointing (controlling input positioning) on a computer display screen. It is an alternative to the mouse. Originally incorporated in laptop computers, touch pads are also being made for use with desktop computers. A touch pad works by sensing the user's finger movement and downward pressure.
To install the USB driver, simply:
- All your input devices must be working under Windows (i.e. the old version of the USB driver must not be running, the device should not be disabled etc.)
- You must be Administrator.
- Select "System" from the control panel.
- Select the "Hardware" tab.
- Click "Device Manager".
Sometimes the receiver gets out of sync with the wireless devices, causing them to stop working. Resyncing the setup is fairly easy. There is usually a Connect button somewhere on the USB receiver. Then press the Connect button on the keyboard and/or mouse and the flashing light on the USB receiver should stop.
Plug the mouse's USB cable into the matching port on the side of your laptop. Restart your computer while the mouse is connected. Once the system has rebooted, the New Hardware Wizard will run and install the driver required for proper functioning of the mouse.
Now you can readily use a desktop computer mouse on your laptop instead of or along with the touch pad. Yes, it's one more thing to carry. But because desktop computer mice are so familiar and people are used to them, it often makes sense for the laptop to have a “big computer” mouse.
