Dell touch pad not working


The touchpad on a Dell laptop is usually located under the keyboard. Moving the finger on the pad moves the pointer on the screen. The buttons near the pad act as a right and left click. Windows includes a method to troubleshoot the touchpad. In addition, if the touchpad is still giving you issues, Dell recommends draining the "flea" power the standby power from the computer to restart it. Both methods are simple and only take a few minutes.

Open the control panel from the Start menu. Click on "Mouse." This will open a window with several tabs. On the first tab, click the touchpad to open a new window to change the settings for your touchpad. You can customize the settings to how you want your touchpad to work. If this does not solve your issue, proceed to the next step. Click the Hardware tab on the screen that pops up. Select the Dell Touchpad and click "Troubleshoot." A new window will open with the Windows Help and Support Center to bring you through methods for troubleshooting the touchpad. Follow the methods described until your touchpad is working properly. Drain flea power Shut down the laptop and disconnect all external devices, such as a thumb drive, headphones and the AC adapter power cable from the system. Take the battery out of the laptop. Hold down the power button for at least 5 seconds without releasing it. Return the battery back to the laptop. Power the system on. If your touchpad still is not working properly, call Dell for customer support.

Turn your Inspiron 1525 off and remove any power cables that are connected to the device. Close the computer, turn it over and slide the battery lock button down to release the rectangular battery from its compartment on the underside of the computer. Turn your laptop right-side up and open the computer so the monitor is facing you. Insert the tip of your flat-head screwdriver in the seam between the plastic keyboard guard and the side of the computer. The keyboard guard is located just above the keyboard. Pry up on the guard until it pops out of place. Be sure to do this gently, as you do not want to damage the guard. Remove the guard from the computer and set it aside. The two keyboard screws will now be visible underneath where the guard used to sit. Use your Phillips screwdriver to remove the two keyboard screws and use the tips of your fingers to lift the keyboard up from the top. Place the keyboard facedown over the touchpad and locate the thick connector ribbon that runs from the motherboard inside the computer to the back of the keyboard. Use your fingers to gently unplug the ribbon from the back of the keyboard and set it aside. Insert the tip of your screwdriver in the seam at the bottom of where the keyboard used to rest and gently pry it up. This will release the top plastic frame from the Inspiron, revealing all of the broken touchpad. Use your fingers to disconnect the thick ribbon from the side of the damaged touchpad and slide the touchpad out of the Inspiron. Slide the new Touchpad (available from your Dell retailer or online) in its place, fit the top frame in place and reassemble the computer in the reverse order you took it apart in.

White screen at bootup


Dell Support > Inspiron1564 Notebook PC > Service Manual,

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/ins1564/en/sm/index.htm

http://www.insidemylaptop.com/replace-broken-screen-dell-inspiron-1564-laptop/

Let's start with two small primers first;

A) An LCD screen cannot produce light. It needs an additional light source. A Backlight is the additional light source.

A Backlight can be a CCFL, (Or two of them), or a series of LED's.
(Light Emitting Diode)
The Dell Inspiron 1564 Notebook PC can come with either a CCFL backlight, or LED backlighting.

http://www.laptopscreen.com/English/model/Dell/INSPIRON~1564/


A CCFL is a Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lamp.
Similar to Fluorescent lighting used in homes, and businesses, but on a MUCH smaller scale.

[ Average thickness is 2mm. That is a little larger than 1/16th of an Inch.
Average length is almost as long, as the LCD screen is in height.
Basic example. Look at the last 9 photos,

http://www.laptoprepair101.com/laptop/2007/12/09/replace-laptop-backlight-ccfl-lamp/ ]

A screen Inverter is used to convert the electricity from the laptop, for the LCD screen, and Backlight.
For LED backlighting a screen Inverter may not be used.

B) For a Dell, video cable is Display Cable.
LCD screen = Display Panel
Switch Cover = Power Button Panel
(Cover that is a strip of plastic essentially, that is above the Keyboard, and below the LCD screen. Has Power On button)

Display Cable:
The display cable attaches to the motherboard, in an area under the Power Button Panel. (Above the F2 and F3 key, approximately)
It then routes under the left Hinge, and up into the Display Panel Assembly.

From there it attaches to the screen Inverter, if used, and to the back of the LCD screen.
A example of the cable,

http://www.ebay.com/itm/DELL-INSPIRON-1545-LCD-FLEX-CABLE-LED-R267J-NEW-/370491513861?pt=US_Laptop_Screens_LCD_Panels&hash=item564303dc05

The cable may become pinched in the left Hinge. This can cause pulling on the cable, and/or damage.
Pulling may cause loose connections of the cable. Loose at the motherboard side, or LCD screen side.

Doesn't take much of a loose connection to get issues like what you are seeing.
In fact it may be so minute (My-noot) that it won't be visually seen.
The ONLY way to be assured the connections are tight, is to PHYSICALLY check them. Try to plug them in tighter.

This means checking the display cable on the motherboard side, and LCD screen side.

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/ins1564/en/sm/powerpan.htm#wp1061007

The Power Button Panel contains the Power On button/switch.
It can be removed, and laid over so that the motherboard connection can be checked, with the Power On switch still attached. This way after physically checking the connection, the laptop can be turned on, and display checked.

[Lay the Display Panel Assembly back as far as you can. Suggest covering screen with soft cloth, or suitable device to protect screen.
Screen has to be handled as if it is good, until diagnoses shows differently.

If the Power Button Panel cannot be laid back far enough, to get out of your way, unplug the Power Button cable. Plug back in to check display.
ALL power removed BEFORE disassembly.
Replace Battery, and AC adapter (Charger) when going to test display, after checking connection ]

For the LCD screen (Display Panel) side of display cable connection,
remove ALL power, then,

http://www.insidemylaptop.com/replace-broken-screen-dell-inspiron-1564-laptop/

,disassemble down to Step 7. This way you can lean the screen out, and check the connection.
Display Panel connection physically checked reinstall power, turn on, check display.

IF there is obvious visual signs of damage to the sheath of the Display Cable, there may also be damage to the tiny wires inside.
(Stretched/Broken)

A continuity check with a multimeter is warranted.
If the Display Cable's sheath does Not show obvious signs of damage, it is still best to perform a continuity check, so you can Positively rule out the Display Cable as the problem.
Suggest go to a local 'Mom and Pop' computer store, and for a coupla' bucks have them check it.

Or replace it.

Display cable checks out 5by? (OK)
Go on.

Screen Inverter:
The next item to check is the screen Inverter, IF a screen Inverter is used.
90 PERCENT OF THE TIME the fault can be attributed to a bad screen Inverter.
One example of an Inspiron screen Inverter,

http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-Genuine-Dell-Inspiron-1545-Series-Lcd-Inverter-Board-15-6-H251M-0H251M-/300756244730?pt=US_Laptop_Screens_LCD_Panels&hash=item46067818fa

Yes. It's an Inspiron 1545 screen Inverter. Couldn't find a listing for an Inspiron 1564 screen Inverter. Means to me that most of the 1564's use LED backlighting, or everyone is switching to an LCD screen that uses LED backlighting.

Display Panel:
If the screen Inverter checks out, the problem is the Display Panel.
(LCD screen)
IF there is No screen Inverter used, the problem is the Display Panel.

I'm willing to bet you have a loose Display Cable connection, or damage to the Display Cable.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

[ For the areas you are going in no ESD wrist strap is needed.
It IS however, always a good practice to wear one, and have it's alligator clip attached to a good ground source.

Electro Static Discharge.
Your body carries Static electricity. Static WILL fry out (Short Circuit), the delicate hardware components inside a computer. (Laptop or Desktop)
Doubtful that you will see it, or feel it. Poof! Your computer is fried.

An ESD wrist strap relieves your body of Static. You CANNOT just touch a metal frame of the laptop to relieve your body of Static, like you can a desktop computer.

Average cost is around $3 to $6. One example,

I connect to an unpainted surface, of the metal frame of an open, empty desktop computer case. I do not feel an anti-static mat is warranted.
You can also set a large metal serving tray (Unpainted), on the table you're working on, and connect to it.
Or use a large metal knickknack (Unpainted ]

Dell inspiron 1520 won't turn on.


Remove the battery from its compartment on the side of your Dell Inspiron laptop computer.


Remove the power adapter from its plug on the side of the Dell Inspiron (if your laptop is currently plugged into a wall outlet).


Press down and hold the "Power" button on the laptop for one to two minutes. This will dispel the excess electrical current that is built up inside the laptop.


Put the battery back inside the compartment of your Dell Inspiron.


Plug your power adapter back into the side of the Dell Inspiron. Press "Power." Your laptop computer will now turn on.


hope this helps

Need to open the Dell Inspiron 530 in order to clean it


Facing the computer your left side is the left side of the computer.

Going around to the back of the computer, there are two screws to remove, so that you can slide the left panel off.

They are along the outside edge of the left panel, and on the backside of the computer.

One is located approximately 3 inches down from the top.
One is located approximately three inches up from the bottom.

In-between the two screws is a bulge. A formed place in the back edge of the left panel.

Once the two screws are removed, hold onto the computer with one hand, and place the fingers of your other hand into that 'bulge'.

Pull back to slide the panel towards the rear of the computer, then lift the panel up, and out.
