Touchpad not working smoothly on dell laptop

I have trouble working with touchpad on dell laptop. The pointer doesnt move smoothly. It feels like it gets stuck and then moves. The calibration really sucks. Any help as to how can this be fixed? I have the latest drivers for the touchpad installed and I dont prefer using connecting external mouse as an alternative. This laptop is very new and sucks big time with touchpad. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Hi all. I was able to fix 2 x E5430 with touchpad unresponsiveness. I tried all other fixes suggested like uninstalling drivers, trying different drivers, adjusting touchpad settings from software, uninstalling antivirus etc, spent 3 days solid on it...ALL TO NO HELP in my 2 E5430's.
..... So I followed a tutorial online to pull apart the touchpad http://blog.parts-people.com/2016/01/25/dell-latitude-e5430-p27g-001-palmrest-touchpad-removal-and-installation/. There is a metallic adhesive that earths the touchpad. Press and rub the adhesive so it makes good contact with chassis it is stuck to, reassemble, that's it! My 2 Dell E5430's now work as expected. No jerks, no unexpected double clicks, no dragging stuff around by accident!!!!! Yah for me!!!

SOURCE: Touchpad Sensitivity

Click on the start menu and select "Control Panel". Once in the control panel, select "Hardware and Sound". Once in the hardware and sound menu, click on "Mouse". Once the mouse menu comes up, there should be a tab labeled "Dell Touchpad". Click on that tab and then click on the large touchpad icon to take you to the touchpad options. Once in the touchpad options menu, click on "Device Select". Once you click on deivce select you should see the option to "enable" or "disable" the touchpad.

SOURCE: scroll on my touchpad doesnt work

You need to download your touchpad driver made for your XPS off the dell website. When windows installs, or when you buy a laptop, it doesn't come with the latest drivers.

Sounds like wear on the contacts, if you can try applying a little pressure to the centre of the pad, and it works better, this is the issue.

What is happening here is, while typing, your wrists are coming into contact with the touchpad. The touchpad is interpreting this as a click and moving the caret to where the mouse pointer is located on the screen. My solution, when I had the same issue, was to buy a cordless mouse and disable the touchpad altogether. If this is not an option for you, then you must relearn your typing habits and practice typing without resting your wrists on the touchpad.

My touchpad jumps around or the arrow won't move


Keep the palms of your hands away from your touchpad.
Just being "close" to the touchpad is enough to move the mouse-pointer.

When I move my finger along the Touchpad it does not do what it's supposed. The pointer either doesn't move or responds in a delayed fashion. I have a dell studio 1735 laptop. Thanks.


Try updating first the touchpad drivers from the support website www.support.dell.com . If updating wont fix the problem try adjusting the mouse sensitivity to your preferred settings on control panel. Hope this helps

Cursor(pointer) cannot be moved by using touchpad but possibe wit


Hi,

This happens to me also. Check whether the touchpad is enabled (laptops do have an option of enabling / disabling the touchpad). Secondly, you can try reinstalling the touchpad driver. Uninstall and then re-install the driver. Re-boot the system. Try using the touchpad.

Hope this helps., if so, rate me.. thanks - billa
