Question about Logitech Marble Mouse Trackball
Hellow folks, i am encountering an error message in my mouse device manager stating that i am unable to connect to the synaptics pointing device driver...
Go to Start -> Control Panel -> System -> Hardware tab -> Click "Device Manager" -> Find the item called Mice and pointing devices and click the + sign. If synaptics is listed right click and select Uninstall. After that completes go to the top of the Device Manager and select Action -> Scan for hardware changes...it should find the device and attempt to reinstall it and the driver.

I am facing the similar problem. this usually happens when intentionally or intentionally you remove your touchpad device driver. which in dell's case is synaptics.
solution to this is simple, install the driver again but this time mannually. if you try to do it automatically as the windows do it when you first restart the system after the issue. it installs the driver of PS2 mouse. Coz that is default driver but not the desired one. so go to dell site and from support link get your synaptics driver. or go to synaptics site and download it. and run it. it should work fine..

Just go to your start-ups and enable the synaptics pointing device or just go the folder( C:/Program Files/Synaptics/SynTP/SynTPStart.exejust) and click on the application. I have spysweeper and i forgot i disable it on my start up shield.

Hello I had the same problem on my computer, HP Pavillion DV9000, running on Win XP SP2. I tried to reinstall the driver - didn't work Then I tried to upgrade to a newer version of the driver - didn't work. The problem still existed. Then it just hit me: I have an English version of Windows XP which means that the default directory for program files is "C:\Program Files". But I live in Sweden and sometimes install Swedish programs. They usually want to install in C:\Program. However, having both "C:\Program Files" and "C:\Program" is NOT advisable since during start-up of Windows there will be a problem for Windows to find the correct directory when loading drivers and programs. So I checked my computer and noticed that I had a few programs installed in C:\Program. I uninstalled these programs and deleted the "C:\Program" folder. Then I restarted my computer and everything worked beautifully. So if you have both "C:\Program" and "C:\Program Files" then you will have to delete the one that is NOT the default program directory. For a Swedish version of Windows that means that you want to keep "C:\Program". For an english version of Windows you want to keep "C:\Program Files". Uninstall the programs before deleting the directory. Hopefully this might help also you. Anyway, good luck.

This can also happen during the following scenario
a) You have disabled the touchpad (out of personal preference), and use just a mouse or trackpoint
b) A driver update occurred and now things don't work.
The problem is that the new driver never fully elaborates because the touchpad was disabled.
a) Re-enable the touchpad either through a utility or via the Bios.
b) Reboot and let the driver elaborate
c) Disable the touchpad (if that is your preference)

You have to install proper driver for your device.
I have couple of websites that can help you, but this one Driver Update Software for XP Vista 7 8 is most accurate.
I hope I have helped
