I have certain issues with my touchpad. They are not covered in the official support articles.
- Every now and then, my touchpad seems to have some dead spots. A dead spot is almost like a circular zone, seemingly no more than 5mm across in which the touchpad doesn’t register touches at all. In effect, this means that if I drag my finger over a dead spot in a straight line, the cursor goes straight at first, then at the dead spot, it curves around it (or stops completely if I go directly through the center of the spot) before continuing the straight line. It reminds me of a picture of a black hole curving spacetime. I can’t click in these zones either. These spots seem to appear randomly in different locations, then disappear after a short while.
- My touchpad doesn’t always register physical clicks. Specifically, when the click is made with just enough force to get it to depress with a click sound, a little more force is necessary to actually register the click. After reading the official support articles, I tried pressing down hard on the bottom center of the touchpad, when seems to have fixed it (for now at least) as of five minutes ago. This did not fix the prior mentioned dead spot problem, which still manifested after.
I’m curious if anyone else is/was having these issues.
