My dell mini's touchpad has locked up. I can't move the cursor

The touch pad is locked. i have the wallpaper, but no icons. the cursor arrow is there, but doesn't move. it doesn't appear that the keyboard works either. couldn't run a system check. all i can do is power up and down.

My Dell Vostro 1014 laptop's touch pad does not work!! The buttons work fine but I'm having problems with the pad. The drivers are up to date and the application used to control the touchpad c


If you have a external mouse, or you can borrow, go into device manager to see if the pad is enabled, if okay! try a system restore bringing the computer back in time before this happened, if still no luck the sensor pad maybe defective, the last option a complete recovery of the operational system to factory setting, this will prove if the sensor pad is defective, or wire ribbon might have come loose from the motherboard.

I'm not sure what you operating system is but I'd suggest you go to your Control Panel and look for Touch pad and look at the settings there, If there's no Touchpad listed have a look in the Mouse settings.

Check the system setup F2 at start, and ensure the touchpad is enabled, next try an external mouse, see if it works.
If and external mouse works, the touch pad has failed and a new palmrest is needed.

Mouse cursor moving by itself


i have latitude c610 and same problem happens with me too. i think that happens when i finish my brakfat and without cleaning my hands start using the touch pad. what happens according to me is that small particles of food(eg bread/dust particles) stuck in the corners or the body wall where the touch pad ends and keeps pressing the touchpad, thus causing the mouse to move to one direction. when i clean the corners and sides of the touchpad, it starts working ok !!

thanks
Johal
