Question about Dell Inspiron 6400 Notebook

1 Answer

I have a dell xps 1330 and the touch pad stopped working abruptly. Now there is an icon that looks like a note pad and pen to the center left of the display. What did I do, and how can I get the touchpad to work? This only happened after I ran windows update, and rebooted the computer. HELP!

Had a similar problem on a laptop i was working on - the touchpad quit immediately after an update.

try using an external USB mouse and then reinstall the driver for it - that's what fixed it for me.

If you've reinstalled the drivers for the touchpad, the issue is likely the hardware- if in warranty, contact Dell tech support- if not, you may need to purchase the palmrest assembly and consult support.dell.com for the install instructions

My first guess is that your video card is starting to go bad. My second guess is the processor needs to have its heatsink reseated. If it is under warranty I would have dell repair it so you don't incur the charge of a new video card.

Do you unlock your mouse on a dell xps m1530


There is no way to check the touchpad settings. Either she has removed the touch pad driver, or she has changed the settings. See if you can find the dell touch pad icon on your system tray(circled in red in the picture below)

If you cant then connect an external mouse and download the driver from the link below
Click here
If you can see the touch pad icon in the system tray then you just need to change the settings. I have set mine at correct levels and posted a screenshot below

Set them to the levels shown above and you should be fine.
Let me know if you need more help.

Xps 1530 touch pad scroll vertical horizental does not work on


What you need to do is install all the software that is included with the Dell XPS drivers and utilities cd. You also have a software there that is for your touchpad. What you need there is either the quickset or the synaptic itouch software. If you could not find it from the disk.. go to support.dell.com and download the drivers and utilities from there.

Dell XPS 1330 touchpad scroll areas quit working


Hi Patrick,
The most likely problem is that the ribbon cable from the touch pad is not making proper connection with the motherboard.
I would recommend you get this repaired under warranty, there is a bit of work involved in pulling the laptop apart to get to this cable & connector and if you do something wrong it could void your warranty.

I can give you instructions if you wish to try and fix it yourself.
Let me know.

DELL xps touchpad


Sounds like a driver glitch, from the device manager, try uninstalling it, then do a hardware search, it will locate it and reinstall the drivers automatically. If this doesn't solve the issue, then the touch pad has failed and needs replacing.

Touch pad


HI,
The xps 1330 is known to have problems with the internal speakers. Kindly call Dell Tech support and get the same replaced,while your system is under warranty. The cable that connects the speakers inside is either not connected right or is broken. If you are geeting sound form the headphones , your soundcard is fine , and there is no software problem on the system.

Thanks
