2.0 out of 5 stars RUBBISH MOUSE/TOUCHPAD CONTROL, 14 Aug 2014
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Toshiba Satellite C50D-B-120 15.6-inch Notebook (Black) - (AMD E1-6010 1.35GHz, 4GB RAM, 500GB HDD, Windows 8.1 with Bing) (Personal Computers)
The mouse/touchpad on this notebook is very poor at responding accurately. I keep on having to lick my finger for it to work to a reasonable degree. The pad texture is rough and the cursor sometimes doesn't move at all or will suddenly move very quickly without me wanting it to. The accuracy is rubbish; I haven't experienced anything like this - not even on cheap old refurbished laptops which I am used to owning. I'm not sure if it's a poor design fault or if I'm just unlucky and have a dodgy one; I don't think I can use it happily because of this, therefore, I'll be asking for advice with a replacement or refund in mind if necessary.

Have you adjusted it's sensitivity?
Maybe that's the problem.
I have an HP that is the same, in fact, to make it behave I've had to remove it, and after a reboot it reinstalls itself.

This does seem to be a common problem which is a pity because the rest of the computer is probably very good. My Toshiba is much the same and I put it down to Windows 8 which is worse than an abomination. How anyone can justify putting a touch screen operating system on a normal computer is a mystery. I might try the suggestion of uninstalling the pad and trying again.

I hate laptop mouse pads in general anyway. From the old fashioned little pencil eraser like dots from the 90s to the touch pads of today, so I always buy a USB mouse for my laptops and bypass the built in mouse controls all together.
