First got to Start/Settings/Control Panel/Mouse(or there may be a separate Touch Pad setup) and check were options for touchpad Settings Options are tabbed or listed.

All touchpads allow on/off settings for Tap or NoTap. Also, check Sensitivity Settings. If very low, then Tap would have to be very hard to be recognized.

Next, reboot your computer.

Cursor is frozen, tried allsorts to solve it. Nowt works. Using mouse with usb cable, works fine. Synaptic logo from bottom right of screen also gone. Tried system restore and it works until I log on...


Sounds like a driver issue with the touch pad. You should try and reinstall the driver.

How to use touch pad dell latitude D610


The touch pad on a Dell Latitude D610 works much the same as with other laptops. You can move your finger around the pad to simulate the movement of a mouse, and it will cause the pointer to move across the screen. You can also tap on the touch pad (gently) to "click" on a file, folder, or other item. The touch pad on a D610 doesn't have a hardware switch like some other laptops do so that you can turn it on or off -- it's just always on.

My touch pad will not allow me to tap on it with my finger to choose things but will allow me to use my finger to move the arrow around the screen? help it very frustating


just reinstall the driver for it ..if it has no driver it works just with the generic one in windows and the scroll and select will not be allowed..or install a usb mouse and will be easier to work and have all features..(in case the driver is not available for the touch pad )
here is the place to look for the pad's driver ..

Toshiba notebook touchpad tap doesnt work


Goto 'Control Panel - Mouse - Device Settings, Highlight the device in the list and then click settings. It Might just be that it needs re-configuring. Devices like this tend to loose there configuration due to being used so much and of course the ammount of pressure put on them. There is alot you can reset here. The touch pad does alot more than you think, We just dont bother to look at the settings because we are too busy looking at the screen,and rightly so. Im not saying this will rectify the problem but its worth a try.

Touch pad not working


That's a sign that the synaptic touch pad needs to be replaced. Eventually they wear out.

Toshiba laptop touchpad click not working


Ok so here goes.... I had the same problem:

Go to the 'start' button and then hit the 'control panel' option, then click 'mouse' then go to 'Device Settings' and then to the 'settings'. When you get to this screen it shows a list on lthe left hand side choose the 'tapping' option and then ok.

Hope it works for you...it did for me.
