Try uninstalling the Alps touchpad driver in the Device Manager and reinstall it again.  


You can find a version released on 06/08/2010 here.


1)  Open the Start menu and type devmgmt.msc in the Search programs and files box.


2)  Programs will appear above the search box with devmgmt listed below it, click on this.


3)  In the Device Manager scroll down to Mice and other pointing devices and click on the diamond to the left of it to expand the list of devices.


4)  Double click on the Alps touchpad.


5)  Click on the Driver tab, then click on Uninstall, then click on OK.


6)  Reinstall the touchpad driver.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Touchpads on most laptops and Netbooks are known to not respond properly, regardless of the driver software.  I would use an external wireless mouse, if the laptop is going to be used in one place, or even if they take it elsewhere, it can be used on the go.  I use a Logitech M525 mouse with my Toshiba Laptop, and before that with the Acer Netbook I had.


1) Was due to arthritis in my hand made it hard to use the touchpad for a long period, and 2) The touchpad on the Acer was so nonresponsive, that you could not get it to sense that you were actually touching the surface where the sensors for it were located.
