I just bought a brand new asus x80L series. I have experienced difficulties in its mouse touchpad. Its kinda hard to control the pointer. You have to exert extra force on the touchpad. Are you guys experiencing the same problem? thank you.

I was having the same problems too on the first day I bought my x80L. To solve this, you just need to go to control panel then mouse and look for the option where you can change the speed of the pointer and the sensitivity of the touchpad. Now, it works perfectly. I hope this helps.

I have a question too. Does virtual scrolling work in x80L? Because I'm really having a difficulty with it. There is an option for enabling virtual scrolling but still, it doesn't work. Do you know how?

Thanks.

Hi All!
I've been using this notebook for nearly 2 months now.
OS: XP Pro SP3
Oh yeah, the touchpad at first it is not responsive at all! (and I'm a 1st Class Touchpad User)
Tweaked with all the mouse related settings to no avail
-downloaded and installed new Synaptics Driver and Control Panel, nothing... no improvement.
► Uninstalled the Synaptics driver and and after reboot let windows use default driver.
(in control panel, under mouse properties, hardware tab, my touchpad is listed as Mircosoft PS/2 Mouse)
☺Since then the touchpad works like a touchpad should work! - light touch / taps, but... you only get vertical scrolling (hmmm maybe I have'nt anything to scroll horizontally) the scrolling area is slightly to the left of the scroll graphics printed on the touchpad. Turn on the Click-Lock in mouse settings improves a lot in overall usage of the touchpad (highlighting, draging and resizing), which is now light to the touch...

BTW i have a lot more of customization and usage experience stories to share.. (ATK Hotkeys Buttons not working properly, etc...)
 Also do give me you feedback if you tried my solution here.

Hi there Afiqah,

Did u try the method in my previous post...?
"for me when i plug in the usb mouse, i can use the touchpad at all.." You meant.. you can't use the touchpad...right..?

Yeah there is a setting to it..

But first I have to know what OS are you using..?

XP or Vista...?

As for me, I'm using XP SP3  and it works superbly now...the Touchpad and everything..

Do reply as I would love to help you out.

Hey mate,

I did notice the change when I upgraded my ASUS laptop to Windows Vista Business Edition. The default driver from Windows seems work better. The responsiveness problem arised right after I installed the touchpad driver. Try uninstalling ASUS's touchpad driver and let Windows handle it.

Cheers!

you can install the alps touchpad where the pointer you can use much easier. There is a small test for this after you install this. Jerry

Bought one of these laptops myself and to be honest I didnt research it first an I am pretty disappointed with it. Mainly with the touchpad, I was able to increase the speed by uninstalling the drivers that came pre-installed (doesnt anyone do any testing at ASUS??), but the grooves and texture on the touchpad still cause issues, and responsiveness is nowhere near usable for me. I can see why ASUS include a free mouse with this laptop.
