    My scroll doesn't work either, I think it is disabled, I cant find how to enable it.

There is no setting for the touchpad. it is set at the factory with hardware components under the touchpad.

Touch pad is way too sensitve and any hint of accidentally touching it send mouse and/or characters all over the place. Makes this computer very difficult to use.


Try these steps:

1. Go to the Control Panel and double click on Mouse
2. Go through the tabs in Mouse Properties window & find the tab where you can set up your touchpad. This differs from laptop to another since it is based on the touchpad's drivers.
3. On that tab, find the "Sensitivity" setting. Try changing this setting to lower the sensitivity of the touch pad to the degree you find acceptable.
4. Click "Apply" to apply the changes, then close the "Mouse Properties" window.

Hey i do not know how this will play out since it is sooo difficult to use my touch pad. I have a Dell Inspiron w/Vista Basic since yesterday my touchpad will not function very well. I lick my finger...


  1. Click on the "Start" icon in the lower left corner of the screen. Select "Control Panel." Next select "Mouse" under "Hardware and Sound."
  2. Select the "Device Settings" tab from the dialog box now. You can see the touchpad for your Vista machine highlighted on this screen. Select "Settings."
  3. Read the information provided in the next dialog box. It gives you options for tapping your touchpad, using the buttons, scrolling, pointer motion and sensitivity.
  4. Make any changes you want from the various topics. When you make a change, click "Apply." Click "OK" when you finish making all your changes.

Touch pad too sensitive, it always messes me up when I'm typing


You could try adjust the touchpad settings. Sometimes there is a touchpad icon in the taskbar that you can right click on to adjust the properties. You can also disable the pad and use a USB mouse instead.

Inspiron 1545 keyboard problem


This is going to sound really weird but I found a fix. I've got a Dell studio XPS laptop and was getting annoyed by the same phenomenon. I discovered the problem was more common when my thumbs were close to/touching the touchpad. I cranked down the sensitivity of my touchpad and things got a lot better. Probably works for many different kinds of laptops.

For my machin - Steps to fix:
Mouse Control Panel: Dell Touchpad Tab: Click to change Dell Touchpad Settings: Touchpad Settings: Touchpad Sensitivity: Move it from near "Light Touch" to the middle.

I hope this helps someone. :-)

Inspiron 1525 Touchpad has a mind of its own


I have had the same problem.  This may sound strange, but try the following:
Switch off the notebook.  
Remove the battery and keep the on off switch pressed for >5 seconds.  
Replace the battery and start the computer again.  

The problem should then be resolved.

Sensitive touch pad


Hi, click on start and control panel. go to mouse properties. Try to look for a tab that says either touch or touchpad. you can change the sensitivity settings there. however if this doesnt work, this could only mean that this is a physical problem with the toucpad. try to apply pressure on the outer side of the touchpad. if it moves, you're gonna need a replacement palmrest.

Cursor skips lines while typing


My experience: cursor suddenly moving backward when i was typing, or moving somewhere else on the page. I would be typing and text suddenly would get highlighted. I followed someone's advice to disable the touch pad. Since I do have a mouse & key pad that was all i had to do.
HOW TO DISABLE THE TOUCHPAD FOR ACER 3680 AND OTHERS??? PRESS Fn +F7
Yep, it was that simple. At first I made sure i typed without my fingers or palms touching or near the touchpad. I noticed it seemed to stop or happen less. Soon as I disabled the touch pad all is back to normal. Yet I spent hrs trying to find out how and there were all these posts by people suggesting downloads and other more complicated things etc..
