Let's try resinstalling the touchpad software first:

If you're using XP it's HERE

If you're using Vista it's THIS ONE

Let me know if that works.

Can't right or left click on inspirion 1501, touchpad is fine.


It would appear that the left/right touch pad buttons have failed. You will have 3 options at this point in time.
1) Use an external wireless mouse such as a Logitech Wireless Mouse M505 for roughly $39.99
2) Use alternative features on the laptop. Left click is typically simulated by tapping or double tapping the touch pad itself and right click can be simulated, in most cases, by single tapping the icon and pressing the pop-up menu button, typically located between the right alt and ctrl buttons.
3) Search for a replacement component online and replace the component. Touch pad replacement will require you to remove all casing screws from the laptop and then remove the case. You will then expose the screws and cabling for the touch pad. I can not give more detailed instructions as this varies per laptop model.

Touch pad not working on Dell Inspiron 1525


My daughter has the same laptop and I went to Dell's web site and checked on the parts to buy. The keyboard kit that came with a new touch pad would be around $119.oo. She is going to wait until next pay day. Check it out and have a friend replace it, if you do not want to.

How to clean inspiron 1525 touch pad


Hi there.
The touchpad itself is easy to clean but if the liquid has got into the left and right click keys you may have a problem, a warm soapy partially dry cloth will take the residue off the touchpad but the soda may have got to the circuit board causing it to be slow to react.
To clean the left and right keys and under the touchpad you have to take the laptop apart, remove the keyboard and the front cover and clean under that where you can get under the left/right click keys and the ribbon cable of the touchpad.
This type of job is not for the novice and i would advise having a technician do it whether it's in or out off warranty, preferably Dell themselves.
Other than that the best option would be to buy a wireless or wired mini mouse which are much easier to use than the touchpad itself.

Please post back with the results and more help if needed, good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

it has been disabled because of bios refreshing try finding the key around the keyboard sorry i don't know which key should you press but i know that laptops has function keys that would enable the touchpad that's what i've learned from this site
