    Hi, i seem to be getting a code 24 for my touchpad driver when i try to re-install as i have been having trouble with it and although the software is there on my vaio laptop it seems it cannot install it, i have windows vista and am wondering if this is the problem. a usb mouse works fine. please go easy on the tech talk as i am not that savvy!

    any help would be much appreciated!

My Vaio touchpad started behaving strange. I could move the curser, but no response on left or right click or double tap. Also found that in any search field or user name fields, the computer would just type endless 9's. My wireless mouse could operate the left and right click buttons, but not move the curser. A suggestion to get the mousepad operating again was to touch any key on the keyboard. This allowed it to function again. Final solution was to remove the battery, then hold down the start key for about a minute, reinsert the battery and start it up. It seems to have resolved the problem. I have a 3 month only laptop with Windows 7 already installed. Hope this helps.

Nope..those touchpads get touchy..of course..

ok..then you may have to use a usb mouse, and then replace the palm rest, which is what carries that touchpad..figure around 200 to 250

Hi enniumz,

If you are using a Sony VAIO Computer, you can enable the Touchpad using the VAIO Control Center Software installed in it. The VAIO Control Center Software can be accesed by clicking "Start", "All Programs" and "VAIO Control Center". After that, click on "Mouse and Point Devices" option on the left pane of the VAIO Control Window and click the box to enable it.

Good Luck!

Hope this helps..please post back with Model # of the Computer, if you require futher assistance.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Touch pad not working


If Windows service pack 1 - doesnot all recent drivers and will not recognize your touch pad and even keyboard. 
Try to boot on Safemode. 
Just press on F8 when your start your computer - and connect an usb mouse and try to install the touch pad drive manually. 
Then boot on normal mode and install your other drivers.. 
It is recommended to update quickly your os to Service pack 2 or 3 for best performance of your computer.
