Touchpad Not Working

I recently performed a full system reinstall on my Sony VGN-A130P notebook. Everything went fine except the touchpad and buttons were non-functional and I had to use a USB mouse instead. After two weeks the touchpad and buttons just started working for no apparent reason. After another week they just stopped working again for no apparent reason and haven't worked since. Sony have had me reinstall the drivers and such but it made no difference. The Alps pointing device is listed in Device Manager but with a yellow "!" and when I go into it it says "This device cannot start (Code 10)". Anybody got any ideas?

Re: Touchpad Not Working

Is there a touch pad 'switch' off function with this particular model? Some Acer machines have an F number plus another key to de-activate/reactivate touch pad. Check your Manual

The touchpad on my Inspiron 1545 isn't responding.


If you reinstalled the drivers then most like there is a problem with the touch pad its self. If you are still under warranty I would call Dell Tech Support to get the touch pad replaced on the system.

I have a Sony Vaio Laptop and earlier today my touchpad was working fine now it's not. How do I unlock/fix this? Thanks

Check your mouse settings in the control panel. Go Start - Control Panel - Printers and Other Hardware - Mouse and check your mouse touchpad settings. There might be something unchecked or not working. If you have adjusted these settings and it still does not work go to the Sony Supoort website and enter your laptop model, country, etc, click on find drivers, download your touchpad driver and reinstall it on your computer. This may reset your issue and will work. If this also does not work then I am sorry to say that you need a new touchpad or there could be something wrong with your mobo. Cheers.

Dell Inspiron 600M Touchpad stopped working


first things first, do take ur laptop off the towel (as this blocks air flow) and place it on a flat surface but slightly elevated to allow better air flow, a better alternative is a notebook cool pad.

now coming to the touchpad issue

download this utility from the support section of dells websight, it gives u loads of option for the touchpad and lets u turn
of the tapping to double click!!

hope this helped
pls rate the solution

Laptop touch pad doesn't work properly

Here is what I did to get the touchpad to start working again. My laptop is Gateway and a couple years old, running Windows Vista.

1. Start>Control Panel
2. Double-click on Mouse icon (or button, depending on how you're systems set up).
3. When a the Mouse Properties window pops up, choose the Device Settings tab.
4. Click on the Settings... button.
5. A new window pops up and on the right side there is a list of options - choose Tapping.
6. Once clicked, there is a check box that allows you to Enable Tapping.
7. Click OK to close out your windows and the tapping option should be enabled on your touchpad.

Hopefully this helps.

Dell Inspiron 600M Keyboard Replaced, now touchpad doesn't work

need to pick up the keyboard and make sure the ribbon cable to the mother board is fully seated. if it is. then the touchpad need to come out and clean it very carefully. the sugar and any sticky substances need to be clean off the machine, around the touchpad.
I hope the drink did not damage the touchpad.(it is heat senstive)
if it still don'e work aft reinstalled it. you need to call dell to get a replacement.
