Question about Dell F3534 Touchpad

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 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.

Microsoft natural wireless layer mouse 6000 lost left key response.

It's possible the left key was reassigned or uassigned. Checked in Control Panel, peripherals, Mouse to check on functions. Also, software for the mouse should allow you to test it. If still not working, reinstall drivers.

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.

Touchpad and cursor keys quit working

I used to get this problem. It is VERY annoying as you must know. try pushing the windows icon button in the top right corner of your keyboard(thats where it is on my keyboard)then use your arrow keys to scroll up to control panel, select mouse by using arrow keys and then use the tab and arrow keys to open the mouse keypad pagetab and push enable and enter key to turn it on.
IF WHEN YOU DO THAT AND your in the touchpad properties but there is no 'enable' and it says no hardware detected, then go into the same mouse window from the control panel and go to the hardware tab and either try to update driver or use the trouble shoot button.

Hope this helped =]

HP Pavilion DV5 touchpad not working

I have the same issue with mine, and i just got it three days ago. I cannot tell you how to fix it entirely since i believe it's a design flaw, but i can help you keep your touchpad working for longer.

If you have noticed, these laptops get quite hot. Also the cooling vents are at the bottom, so if you keep the laptop on a soft surface such as your bed, the vents are essentially blocked. When the touchpad gets too hot, it stops working.

So, how to keep it cool you may ask? For one, do not keep it on the bed while it is turned on. Secondly, ALWAYS keep the battery out when you are not using it, as it gets hot as well. Also, keeping the battery charged at 100% for extended periods of time wears it much faster than if you actually use it. Search for the web for "Li-Ion care", there is plenty of info. If you need to have some battery power available at all times, use the laptop on battery power until it reaches 60%, then plug the adapter back in, and unplug it again once it's fully charged and so on. This is still much better than keeping it at 100% all the time.

Btw, the reason why it momentarily starts working again when you reset the BIOS it's because it cools down a little when you do that, the system load while in the BIOS is almost zero.

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.

Magnifier doesn't work

Try going to Control Panel and click on the mouse icon. Then the mouse properties will appear showing the mouse. In the left column,move your cursor over the right side button click on the drop down and select magnify. Hopefully it will now work.

I had to move the magnify function to the left button because it was to sensitive on the right.

Laptop touchpad no longer does tap function

on the bottom bar by the clock, if your computer is newer there should be a small icon that controls your mouse. Simply right click on it and check the box "tap to click" or similar. Hope this helps!

Hpdv9000 laptop mouse wont work

Check if you have installed the latest drivers...
For the touchpad, you should be able to find them on the hp support site
For external mouse, there should be drivers on the manufacturers site or the driver disk that came along with it.

Is it the touchpad that doesn't work, or is it an external mouse?

Touchpad Not Working

is there a touch pad 'switch' off function with this particular model? Some Acer machines have an F number plus another key to de-activate/reactivate touch pad. Check your Manual
