Question about Dell Latitude D600 Notebook

1 Answer

Over-Intuitive Clicking My Latitude is taking considerable latitude with decision making on its own. I barely get the mouse pointer over an item and it unilaterally selects it. Windows close and open on their own. Fly out menus are a nightmare to control. This is extremely annoying as I work in Photoshop CS3 and I want to have control over when and where I click my mouse. Help - is there something I don't know about the set up of the mouse on this notebook?

If your mouse is working erratically, or just not working the way you want, you might need to change your mouse settings.
You might want to check your computer or mouse documentation to see whether the manufacturer recommends particular settings.
To change your mouse settings

  1. Open Mouse Properties in Control Panel.
  2. Choose the settings you want on the Buttons, Pointers, Pointer Options, Wheel, and Hardware tabs.
To open Mouse Properties, click Start, click Control Panel, click Printers and Other Hardware, and then click Mouse.

Lost th arrow on dell laptop


If the arrow does not appear, it usually means that Windows did not detect a mouse. A quick and easy way to test this is to plug in a USB mouse from a desktop computer. If your arrow returns, that confirms Windows does not see your mouse. If this *is* the case, then go into the BIOS screen (F2? when booting) and look through the menus to make sure mouse is enabled. Also make sure to look for an option under "Dock" that says something like disable mouse when docked. If plugging in a USB mouse does not make the pointer re-appear, then you may have windows problems. I'd try easy things first, like re-installing the mouse driver for your laptop. This especially if you have a fancy driver for multi-finger gestures 8-). While you work on this, try the Tab and ALT-Tab keys to move the focus around on your desktop. The Start menu also springs up with the Windows key. Space and Enter are like clicking. ALT-Enter like right-clicking.

I want to deactivate the center blue colour touch/scroll botton


Usually the mouse control panel has options to disable the pointer or pad.

If you can't see it, download the latest pointer drivers from Dell for your model.

Ppo1l dell latitude laptop mouse pointer keeps moving to top right corner. doesn't stay stationery


Your mouse pad is probably damaged.

Try to boot a different OS like Linux and see the behavior.

if the problem persist, you can disable the touchpad and use external mouse instead.

How to use touch pad dell latitude D610


The touch pad on a Dell Latitude D610 works much the same as with other laptops. You can move your finger around the pad to simulate the movement of a mouse, and it will cause the pointer to move across the screen. You can also tap on the touch pad (gently) to "click" on a file, folder, or other item. The touch pad on a D610 doesn't have a hardware switch like some other laptops do so that you can turn it on or off -- it's just always on.

Dell d600 mouse pointer jumps into corners if working on documents etc.; maybe if the system stores data in the cache or ram, the cursor wether jumps into the left down corner or moves slowly in directon...


What the issue is, is the eraser head mouse in the enter of the keyboard. When you type, it's putting uneccessary pressure on it, and it makes the pointer move. The only solution I know for this is to get the updated ALPS driver for the mouse, and disable the eraserhead (The updated driver gives you an option to do this), thereby using only the touchpad mouse.

Dell Laptop Trackball Too sensitive!


Go to control panel. Select mouse. In the window that opens, select the dell touchpad tab. Click where it tells you.

Then, on the bottom left of the next window that opens, select "pointing stick settings." Uncheck the "tap to click" and the TouchCheck "Enable" boxes.

That seemed to work for me. you can also disable the touchcheck on the touchpad.
