Question about Dell F3534 Touchpad

Dell touchpad problem

I just bought a Dell XPS M1330 and my touchpad icon in the taskbar disappeared one day, and the scroll stopped working. I went into program files and opened it again, but when I try to use it, it turns itself off. I get a window asking me if I am using another mouse, and if I want to uninstall the touchpad. When I click on No, it opens another window and runs a diagnostic, tells me there is a problem and when there is a solution they will let me know. Then it closes it all again. The mouse settings in the control panel haven't helped either.
Oh, and I tried without the power (a solution someone suggested), and it made no difference.

This problem is due to the latest driver present on the dell website. if you have tried to update your current touch pad driver then you will face this problem. To solve this uninstall the Synaptics driver which is currently installed in your system and then go to Dell folder present in your C: and install the Synaptics Touchpad driver present over there. restart the PC and your problem will be solved. I was having this problem which i fixed within 2 hrs yesterday.

Dell Inspiron 1525. Updated the touchpad driver from the Dell support site and completely lost the Dell driver and software for the touchpad. Every install of the driver failed and was left with a PS/2 mouse driver. After reading justafreak's post, I downloaded a Synaptics Touchpad driver and it installed without any problems. THEN I was able to install the R180045 (Dell touchpad) driver over the Synaptics driver from device mgr./update driver. Dell touchpad is back and works fine.

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

How do you enable a touch pad on a dell computer. The feature disappeared after my laptop was reloaded due to a virus

Two different ways to do it...
1. Use your function keys... Combination of the Fn key (next to the Alt Key) and one of your "F" keys, look on your F-Keys you will see icons.. Look for the Touchpad Icon

Then Press Fn and Corresponding F Key at the same time to Enable/Disable Touchpad...


Go to scroll to bottom of website's home page and look for: SUPPORT AND DRIVERS.... Click on the Text and It Will Then Ask You To CHoose ... LAPTOP, or Desktop, or Tablet etc.... You Choose LAPTOP..... THen Choose THe Model from the list, then choose the model number from the list and it will then take you to Your Laptops Drivers Page... Scroll Down and Find Your Touchpad Driver and Redownload it and install it....

Brand new dell xps laptop, touchpad will not scroll.

The Dell touchpad settings can be accessed in Vista by going to Start -> Control Panel -> Hardware and Sound -> Mouse. If the box that appears when you open the mouse properties doesn't say anything about dell then you need to install the driver for the touchpad. To do this go to and then click "Enter a Tag", then enter your service tag, which can be found on the underside of your computer, into the box and click "Go". After selecting the operating system that is running on the machine click the little + icon next to "Imput Device Drivers" and once that expands download and install the one that says "Dell - Driver Applies to Touchpad / Pointing Stick". Once it is installed the computer may need to restart.

Dell touchpad disappeared

Try using your touch pad when your laptop is running on batteries (while power supply is disconnected).
Many of new power supply supplied with dell laptops are faulty and cause touchpad to work erratically/horribly
