Gaming Laptop Predator Helios 500 Touchpad Not Working Properly (Probably Lagging)

I purchased the PREDATOR HELIOS 500 recently and

I was just randomly playing a cps game on joltfly.com/clicks-per-sixty-seconds/

and I am finding it really hard to keep up with the score my friends are getting.

I was just curious is there any way to outperform them. I thought I had purchased a high-end pc, but it's not working out for me in this scenario.

    Unfortunately did not work in my case.
    One of my friends recommended using external mouse and guess what my performance has enhanced exponentially.

    Yeah, touchpads are in general not as fast at reacting as an external mouse is. They have to think more about what you are doing than a mouse does, in order to differentiate between a touch and drag and a touch and click.

    Yeah, budd, all of my drivers are updated. the game I was trying to dominate actually involves insane clicking, and you know you can't compete with a mouse using a touchpad. now I am playing with my external mouse and doing good actually :)
