Sony Touchpad Conflict with USB Mouse
Posted on 2004-04-12
I have a Sony laptop with an APR touchpad and a docking station; operating system is XP. I purchased a Microsoft wireless keyboard and mouse, connected them through the docking station's USB port and loaded the Microsoft Intellipoint software. The keyboard works fine and the Intellipoint software says the mouse signal strength and battery strength are good but the mouse does not work. I've tried updating the APR drivers from the sony sight, loaded Microsofts SP 1 to get the latest USB support, tried disabling the touchpad using the Sony Notebook setup - nothing works. I'm sure I could uninstall the touchpad driver every time I attach to the docking station, but this would be a pain. Can anyone help?
