Touch pad in Samsung® NB30
How to deal with the touch pad issues in Samsung NB30?
The Samsung NB30 has a 10.1inch screen, 1.66GHz Intel Atom processor, 1GB of RAM and a 250GB hard drive, with Wireless-N Wi-Fi and Bluetooth rounding off the wireless connectivity. It also includes 3 USB ports, VGA, audio jacks, Ethernet and a memory card slot. This is completely sufficient for most demands, and there is the added bonus of one of the USB ports supporting standby charging. This is a remarkable feature for anyone who wants to charge their phone, but does not have the mains power adapter to hand. However you might face some issues with the touchpad software with the Samsung NB30. The touchpad is one of the most commonly used input devices in a laptop. If your touchpad stops functioning then it will be really difficult but not impossible to use your laptop.
The following are the issues that can come in touchpad software in Samsung NB30:
- Driver Problems
- Other issues
- Possible solutions
The most probable culprit for your laptop's malfunction is a driver problem. There is a chance that some virus activity or user error would have damaged or removed the driver. To find this out, access your computer's device manager to check for driver problems. The device manager should indicate whether or not there is a driver problem under the 'Mouse and Other Pointing Devices' tab. If there is a problem, a replacement driver should be available for download on the website of the manufacturer.
If the touchpad driver works properly, but still the touchpad does not function, then it is possible that the connection could have failed. You should partially disassemble the computer for checking and repairing the connection. But you should note that it is not a repair to be undertaken by an unskilled technician. If the motherboard has some issue then it will require its replacement.
You should try to connect a mouse to your laptop, if your touchpad stops working. You could do this either by USB, or PS2, if your computer has those ports. The laptop should automatically detect the mouse and install it, giving you mouse functionality. If your laptop does not automatically detect and install the mouse, then you might have to search for a driver for your mouse on the website of the manufacturer.
