Question about Dell F3534 Touchpad

1 Answer

Right touchpad key no longer works

For some reason, a few days ago, the right key of the touchpad mouse lost its function. It would work sometimes if I kept pressing it repeatedly, but now it does not seem to work at all. Nothing pops up when I right click. However, the left key is still fine as well as all my keyboard keys. My computer is also running at its normal speed.

Try to make sure the key is not depressed. If it is, you can try to remove the palmrest (plastic that extends from the left to the right side of the computer below the keyboard) and try to put the key back in place. You can check the manual at support.dell.com to know how to remove and reinstall the palmrest.

If this doesnt work, you must replace the palmrest. Obviously it's a defective hardware. You can call dell's spare parts sales and order a palmrest at 8773723355.

Asus touchpad no longer scrolls / works


do you have an icon in your sys tray? You should be able to right click on that and check the properies.

Not go to

Start -> Type "mouse" (without quotes) and click on the mouse link

This will open your mouse and scroll. Check your settings.

Finally, have you installed anything lately. Sometimes when you install new software or a new device it will conflict with the old drivers and you have to work around this to get them both functioning again

Mouse buttons left right switching sticky keys


Remember you can always use the keypad in place of the mouse. Try replacing the mouse with another one. If that doesn't work, it is probably something in the software. Do a scan on the system next.

Left click does not work. Both on touchpad and external mouse.


This indicates a virus in your system, since you can't use the mouse, I would do a full recovery to factory setting if possible.

Toshiba Laptop left click stopped wokring?


1) Examine your "Function"/"F" keys and look for a touchpad icon. If you find one, hold the "Fn" key and press the touchpad icon button to unlock the touchpad. Move on to Step 2 if your laptop doesn't support this feature.

  • 2) Plug a USB mouse into an open port on your laptop. Click the Windows "Start" button. Click "Control Panel" in Windows XP and double-click "Device Manager." Type "Device" in the search box in Vista and Windows 7 and click "Device Manager" from the results.
  • 3) Click "+" next to "Mice and other pointing devices." Right-click the touchpad and select "Enable." Your touchpad is now unlocked.

    I have a toshiba satelight. The touchpad had stopped working with no reason. It is unlock, the touchpad is functioning, but it is not moving. when I put the usb mouse, it is working. . How do I get...


    Maybe you should try reloading or updating the touchpad driver. I had to reload mine, on my Satellite, a few weeks ago because of the same problem.If you update and reload the driver and that still doesn't fix the problem then the touchpad itself may have gone bad.

    There's a little button right above the touchpad. If the light on this button is orange, the touchpad is disabled. Press it again until the light is white again and your touchpad should work.

    Acer aspire one touchpad right button not working


    you can try using the function key ( fn ) and the touch pad key on my acer it is the F7 key hold the fn key and press and release the touch pad key that will turn the touch pad mouse off and on also goto control panel / mouse and try switch primary and secondary see if that will make the right button work if not its probly hardware related and your best bet is to keep the external mouse going rather than fixing that one

    Laptop touch pad doesn't work properly


    Here is what I did to get the touchpad to start working again. My laptop is Gateway and a couple years old, running Windows Vista.

    1. Start>Control Panel
    2. Double-click on Mouse icon (or button, depending on how you're systems set up).
    3. When a the Mouse Properties window pops up, choose the Device Settings tab.
    4. Click on the Settings... button.
    5. A new window pops up and on the right side there is a list of options - choose Tapping.
    6. Once clicked, there is a check box that allows you to Enable Tapping.
    7. Click OK to close out your windows and the tapping option should be enabled on your touchpad.

    Hopefully this helps.
