Dell touch pad not working


The touchpad on a Dell laptop is usually located under the keyboard. Moving the finger on the pad moves the pointer on the screen. The buttons near the pad act as a right and left click. Windows includes a method to troubleshoot the touchpad. In addition, if the touchpad is still giving you issues, Dell recommends draining the "flea" power the standby power from the computer to restart it. Both methods are simple and only take a few minutes.

Open the control panel from the Start menu. Click on "Mouse." This will open a window with several tabs. On the first tab, click the touchpad to open a new window to change the settings for your touchpad. You can customize the settings to how you want your touchpad to work. If this does not solve your issue, proceed to the next step. Click the Hardware tab on the screen that pops up. Select the Dell Touchpad and click "Troubleshoot." A new window will open with the Windows Help and Support Center to bring you through methods for troubleshooting the touchpad. Follow the methods described until your touchpad is working properly. Drain flea power Shut down the laptop and disconnect all external devices, such as a thumb drive, headphones and the AC adapter power cable from the system. Take the battery out of the laptop. Hold down the power button for at least 5 seconds without releasing it. Return the battery back to the laptop. Power the system on. If your touchpad still is not working properly, call Dell for customer support.

Turn your Inspiron 1525 off and remove any power cables that are connected to the device. Close the computer, turn it over and slide the battery lock button down to release the rectangular battery from its compartment on the underside of the computer. Turn your laptop right-side up and open the computer so the monitor is facing you. Insert the tip of your flat-head screwdriver in the seam between the plastic keyboard guard and the side of the computer. The keyboard guard is located just above the keyboard. Pry up on the guard until it pops out of place. Be sure to do this gently, as you do not want to damage the guard. Remove the guard from the computer and set it aside. The two keyboard screws will now be visible underneath where the guard used to sit. Use your Phillips screwdriver to remove the two keyboard screws and use the tips of your fingers to lift the keyboard up from the top. Place the keyboard facedown over the touchpad and locate the thick connector ribbon that runs from the motherboard inside the computer to the back of the keyboard. Use your fingers to gently unplug the ribbon from the back of the keyboard and set it aside. Insert the tip of your screwdriver in the seam at the bottom of where the keyboard used to rest and gently pry it up. This will release the top plastic frame from the Inspiron, revealing all of the broken touchpad. Use your fingers to disconnect the thick ribbon from the side of the damaged touchpad and slide the touchpad out of the Inspiron. Slide the new Touchpad (available from your Dell retailer or online) in its place, fit the top frame in place and reassemble the computer in the reverse order you took it apart in.

Touch pad is turned off.


Well, I'm not able to find your computer model with the info you've provided. What I would suggest is: If there is a keyboard combo (the Fn key plus a special function key with a picture of a mouse or touchpad on it), press that combo to turn on the touchpad. These days it's advantageous to turn the touchpad off to avoid accidently touching it. You can also check in the device manager to see if the touchpad has been disabled.

I have a dell Inspiron1564 not working touchpad


Is there a switch just above the touchpad to turn it off? Is there a keyboard combo (Fn key plus a special function key) that turns the touchpad on and off?

If you find neither, you may have to take the computer apart and check the connection. You can find directions for all this at support.dell.com. Just enter you service tag number or choose the computer from the list they provide.

Can't "tap" on my Dell touchpad


I had the same problem after purchasing an HP laptop with a Synaptics TouchPad. After using a wireless mouse for awhile, the TouchPad stopped working. The TouchPad light was white, indicating it was enabled. No TouchPad devices was listed anymore in the Mouse Properties in the Control Panel. I tried reloading the driver but nothing changed.

After shutting down the laptop and removing the battery (according to owner’s manual) it worked again. After turning on the laptop, make sure the TouchPad works. Then go to Control Panel, Mouse, Device Settings tab, and make sure a Synaptics TouchPad is listed in the Devices list and that the Enable button is grayed out.

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 http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/index.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen 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.

Mouse touchpad, keyboard, and usb drives will not work


One thing you can try (for the touchpad)

Acer have got a function key to turn it on and iff (i thought mine was broken for a year). Hold the function key, which is located bottom left of keyboard, and then press F7. It should be F7 anyway.

Hope that helps for your touchpad
