Try to test it using 32 bit diagnostic

tap F12 (just after Dell Splash Screen)
select Diagnostic partition
wait for test to finish
select Custom test (may need to use TAB and ENTER)
select pointing device

if it work here, it is likely a driver issues - got to support.dell.com and download latest pointer drivers (Alps under Input Devices?) You may as well do this first since it is easier than testing see http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&cs=22&l=en&s=dfh&os=WW1&osl=en&catid=&impid=&SystemID=INS_PNT_P4_8200

If it does not work her, you'll need to pop it open and see if cables are tight, if they are the touchpad is broken and you'll need a replacement palmrest (included the palmrest)

see the manual at support.dell.com for info on disassembling your model if required.

HP 2530p EliteBook - touchpad stopped working. Scrolling works except touch scrolling on right side of pad) and right button, but that's all. Wireless mouse works fine.


To access Mouse Properties, select Start - Control Panel - Hardware and Sound -Mouse.

Use Mouse Properties in Windows to customize settings for pointing devices, such as button configuration, click speed, and pointer options.

> you just have to reinstall driver for your touchpad but if after doing that and still not working then touchpad might be busted
> sometimes a certain software might be causing the touchpad to not work and restoring computer to factory default might resolve the issue but this will cause your files so do a back-up first

My laptop touchpad stopped working


this is probably a driver issue if you are lucky other wise the touch pad must have become faulty

if its a driver issue go to this site
http://www.synaptics.com/support/drivers
and download the drivers according to your operating system

install them and check if the touch pad starts working

if not then its probably a physical fault and needs replacing

Virtical mouse pad on my pavilion dv7 won't work.


Reinstall the touchpad drivers (from www.hp.com) Most of these will not work without the driver, my dv9000 is the same way.

Mouse pad


you would be better off using an optical mouse that has a usb or ps2 connector ( depending on what your laptop supports ) usb would be better though less chance of pins bending as there are none on a usb connection ( at least not like a ps2 connector )

Also download the latest drivers for the touchpad and make sure that the scrolling options for or on the touchpad are not configured too thickly which will be in the touch pad settings.

Mouse touch pad problem Lenovo Y410 model notebook


Just above my keyboard there is a little black strip with little lights.
they are control buttons and if you tap one of them it turns the touchpad off and on (so it's very easy to do accidentally).

 If you look really closely at the strip in good light (or restart the laptop to see them flash on and off) you'll see that one looks like a touchpad crossed out. Just press this to get your touchpad back.

If it doesnt solve the problem, I have noticed that the touchpad can be knocked out by a Window Update of something called ideacom. If you believe this could be the problem please clarify.
