I recently got an HP Pavilion touchsmart laptop and the touchpad locks up while I'm pressing any of the keys on the keyboard. It's got Windows 8 but I don't think that has anything to do with it. Any suggestions on how to fix it?

Hi,

FOR WINDOWS 8:
1) go to control panel
2) click on hardware and sound tab
3) Find Synaptics TouchPad (at the very bottom for me) and click on it
4) find where it says PalmCheck-Enhanced and ckick on it
5) move the mouse right and click on the settings button beside where it says PalmCheck-Enhanced
6) At the top, drag the arrow on the bar all the way left to turn it off.

Hope this Helps!
