You need to install the Dell touchpad drivers and application from the Dell support website to access the properties. You can download the drivers from the link after you select the correct Operating system version: http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&cs=19&l=en&s=dhs&ServiceTag=&SystemID=INSPIRON1545&os=WLH&osl=en&catid=&impid=. Save the file on desktop and right click on it, to Run as Administrator. Install the drivers and reboot your system. Now you would be able to access the Touchpad properties from the Mouse properties in Control Panel.

The touchpad of your laptop is a most important and frequently used input device. If your touchpad stops functioning, it may be difficult for you to use your laptop.

To fix your touchpad, follow the information from this link.

you may have to replace the palmrest (it's a kit) .. go to this link to buy one..i found it on google.

there are no remedies for this type of issue unfortunately, and Dell has not FAQ about this problem. If your system is still under warranty, i would urge you to get in contact with dell to have it replaced immediately www.dell.com

The buttons on the touchpad are an intergal part of the palrest and cannot be taken out.
Boot the laptop up into the BIOS by pressing F2 when the Dell screen appears.
Not being sure what BIOS rev you have all I can advise is to look through the BIOS and insure that they haven't been disabled.

I want to turn my touch pad off as it interfers with my typing and using my mouse. How do I turn it off?

Welcome to Fixya

The first thing to do is to reinstall the touchpad driver for your touchpad. If same thing will happen, try to use external mouse and see if you will be getting the same problem. If external mouse works fine, then most likely you have a bad touchpad. You might need to have it repaired by DELL depot center.

Thank you for using Fixya!

If you have already tried another mouse and works fine in Windows OS then the problem gets narrowed down to the touchpad being faulty and would have to replace it but don't discard the touchpad could be accidently disabled in the control panel of the mouse properties. Dell laptops usually have a driver chipset and driver for the mouse touchpad specifically which you can get on support.dell.com

try reinstalling before getting new touchpad part for your laptop. Dell has spareparts where you can buy a refurb one and install yourself. Instructions on how to take apart your laptop is on the same site.

try reinstalling the drivers. Also, you may want to test an external mouse and see if it behaves the same. If you dont have problems with the external mouse, have reinstalled the touchpad drivers and still the mouse acts erraticaly, then go to the Control Panel, select System, then go to the Hardware Tab and click the Device Manager button (steps for XP system, if Vista or Win7 look for Hardware manager of some kind). Then, from the list of hardware components scroll down to the Mouse and Pointers section, hit the + icon, and erase the trackpad (select it and hit Delete on the keyboard). Restart the computer, and Windows should reinstall the drivers without any intervention on your part. If this doesnt help, you may be dealing with a broken touchpad or a BIOS issue.

This is a common problem. Your Dell touchpad is not normally compatible with Windows 7. You may go to this site and enter all your system information and search for a driver to download. http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/index.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen

Good luck to you. I would appreciate you letting me know if you are successful.

my toch pad dont work when my laptop is charging i have inspiron 1525

Dell F3534... | Answered on Dec 16, 2010

it is usually a function key - not sure which on the Dell but look for a blue icon hat looks like a finger over a pad - that is the one - so press the fn key and that key together - will enable it if it is disabled.
on Acer is is fn F7 - may be the same on the dell

It's possible the ZIF Cable for the touchpad has come loose. You can access it fairly easy.
Follow this link, at the bottom of the page there will be a link that reads "download" Dell service manual. Click the word "Download" and you will get a pdf repair manual.
Hope it helps
If this helps you resolve your problem, please
consider giving me a rating of 4 and maybe a
"thanks" It will help me as well. Thank you.

The mouse touchpad may be bad. Use a USB mouse and check if it does the same thing.
