Mouse pad won't work


Reinstall the driver for the touch pad. If tha still doesn't work, I would suspect the touch pad itself and buy a new touch pad for your laptop, or an external usb/wireless mouse.

Touchpad doesn't work


Step 1:
The touchpad of any laptop is always subject to heavy use.
Most touchpads are designed for their durability to sustain the daily wear and tear for the lifespan of the laptop.
However, there may be instances or accidents that cause the touchpads to malfunction or stop working entirely.
There are ways to troubleshoot such problems and there are also remedies to salvage the touchpad's functionality without heavy repair or replacement cost.

Determine What's Wrong
A laptop's touchpad basically provides the functionality of a mouse for a desktop PC, typically with two buttons located just below it acting as the left and right click buttons on a desktop computer. A touchpad may be damaged by excessive use or foreign substances such as water, dirt or food items. Hit the "Windows" button on the keyboard and then use the right-left keys (or hit 'C') to open "Control Panel." From there, again use the right-left keys to get to "Mouse" and then hit "Return." Use the right-left keys to toggle between the tabs and open each to investigate whether any boxes had been improperly clicked by accident that cause the touchpad to become unresponsive. But if any of these steps fail to remedy the problem, then the touchpad may need to be repaired or replaced. b> Repairing/Replacing Touchpad b> A touchpad assembly cost $100 or more and that's not including replacement installation. Hiring a specialist to replace a damaged touchpad, including parts and labor, may easily cost $200. Unless the laptop in question is worth well over $1,000 and the touchpad is deemed a necessity, such repairs are rarely worth the cost. Attempting to replace the touchpad without certain expertise in laptop assembly may be dangerous and/or destructive. Also, getting a replacement part that's not compatible with the laptop may have catastrophic results, including irreversible damage to the laptop. Long-Term and Better Solution b> The simplest, and best, solution to a malfunctioning touchpad is to replace its functionalities with an external mouse. Most PCs sold after 2000 come with USB ports and getting a USB mouse either a corded or a cordless one--will remedy the problem. A cordless USB mouse may be bought for as little as $10 and some of the better-designed ones allow the user to tuck the USB stick inside the mouse's belly when not in use. Even when a touchpad is working properly, a laptop user should be advised to plug in a mouse anyway whenever possible as touchpads are notoriously difficult to use and also leaves the user in an ergonomically incorrect position.

My laptop is only a few months old, and the touchpad randomly stopped working....what can i do?


If you have already tried another mouse and works fine in Windows OS then the problem gets narrowed down to the touchpad being faulty and would have to replace it but don't discard the touchpad could be accidently disabled in the control panel of the mouse properties. Dell laptops usually have a driver chipset and driver for the mouse touchpad specifically which you can get on support.dell.com

try reinstalling before getting new touchpad part for your laptop. Dell has spareparts where you can buy a refurb one and install yourself. Instructions on how to take apart your laptop is on the same site.

Whenever i click on touch pad its not working


Try to check in the mouse properties if the tapping feature of the laptop is turned on. If the mouse button works and you can move the pointer throught the touch pad, then definitely its working.

Touchpad


the only solution i can think of if you're not wanting to spend big money on it is to hook a wireless mouse to your system. I use both keyboard and mouse on my laptop as i kept touch that touchpad when i was typing. I do hope this does help you out.
