How do i disable the touch pad on my Dell Lattitude E5400 laptop? Thanks, Tom tc@tc-talent.com 917-733-5968


Hi,

You can turn off the touch pad through the mouse settings in the Control Panel. I was a little frustrated by this too, but if you go to the Control Panel and click 'Mouse', the first tab of this new window is 'Dell Touchpad'. Simply click anywhere in that window and you'll be able to configure the touch pad settings. One great option for many people is 'Disable Touchpad/Pointing Stick when external USB mouse is present' as there is no easy one-button solution to disable it.

Laptop mouse problem


This is a common problem with laptops, unfortunately, there is no real solution of fixing the touch pad.
The best solution is to use an external usb mouse.
I recomend an optical mouse, they cost about 5 US dollars.

Lenovo n500 laptop ... mouse pad not working


The mouse pad maybe faulty or the ribbon cable from the mouse pad to the motherboard may not be properly connected. Reseat this cable.
You can connect an USB optical mouse to the laptop. I prefer you use a USB mouse all the time over the mouse pad.

Scroll bar on asus mouse pad not working


Try removeing any external devices and reboot the unit.
Next, look at your device manager for flags..
Remove any if shown in manager.
Restart the unit.
If you still don't have control of the scroll bar, try booting into safe mode and see if you have control their.
If you still do not have control of the scroll bar, try reloading the drivers for the mouse and touch pad.
Buy any chance do you have a mouse lock or switch on the unit that may be on.
I know, on the center of my touch pad, I have a switch to engage and dis-engagae.

Turn off touch pad


When you are booting up from a cold shutdown, Tap the F2 key until you enter the Bios/System Setup Pages. Usually you use the Alt+P key combination to navigate in these pages, but there should also be a legend at the bottom of these pages to indicate what keys change pages. In these pages you will come upon your option to choose pointers. One is usually, glide pad + mouse. I'd try that first, as it senses when a mouse is attached and disables the glide pad. However, this doesn't always work with Dells. So, if that is the case, choose Mouse Only for a PS2 Mouse and or Serial for a USB Mouse.

The Glide Pad is found in the Control Panel, Mouse where you have a property tab that has the settings for your glide pad. Besides setting pressure sensitivity you can also disable it in some Dell Systems.

If none of this works for you, look on the bottom of your laptop for the Service Tag number and send that set of numbers and letters to me using the comment box below and I'll find you the driver update that should repair your Glide Pad.

As always, please rate all our solutions on FixYa.

Always here to help,

Touch pad


Hi, easy to fix this.

I have a Dell 610 myself and have the same problem, in spite of the software updates, the pressure sensitivity doesn't work real well.

To disable the glide pad, boot into the setup screens, F2, use Alt+P to scroll through the pages for mouse vs. keypad. Select Serial Mouse. Doesn't make sense when you have a USB mouse, but the PC will keep your USB mouse enabled and this disables the Glide Pad.

If you're confused or I mistyped this, ask me via the comment box below and I'll make it more clear. Its pretty late here on the West Coast, but this will fix your problem.

Thanks for rating this solution fixed once we have you settled and finished if it takes another response from me to reboot myself and be more accurate as to what page its on.

Regards,
Worldvet

Go to the 'start' button and then hit the 'control panel' option, then click 'mouse' then go to 'Device Settings' and then to the 'settings'. When you get to this screen it shows a list on lthe left hand side choose the 'tapping' option and then ok.

Hope it works for you...it did for me.
