Dell Laptop Trackball Too sensitive!

I have a Dell Latitude D630 and my trackball is at the intersection of the "G", "H", and "B"... Everytime I type, especially when typing the "G", "H", or "B", and one of my fingers barely brushes the trackball, the cursor goes off into a new position, and I have to do a lot of deleting...Its taking me forever to type anything! I have tried to reduce the speed and precision of the pointer, usineg the control panel option on the start menu and it does not help... Is there any way to deactivate the trackball while I am typing, or using an external wireless mouse? Thannks!

    I have a similar problem. The tackball is way too sensitive. When I navigate, I end up highlighting stuff left and right.

    I have a Dell Inspiron 4100 and I have the same problem. IN the configuration screen for the mouse there is no possibility to disable the trackball... Anyone have a good idea on this, please help! Thank you in advance.

Go to control panel. Select mouse. In the window that opens, select the dell touchpad tab. Click where it tells you.

Then, on the bottom left of the next window that opens, select "pointing stick settings." Uncheck the "tap to click" and the TouchCheck "Enable" boxes.

That seemed to work for me. you can also disable the touchcheck on the touchpad.

Download the newest mouse driver from Dell's web site. http://support.dell.com/support/topics/global.aspx/support/downloads/en/downloads_splash?c=us&l=en&s=gen&~mode=popup&file=204968 It will have an option for changing settings on the specific mouse, or disabling it alltogether.

Dell Latitude D820. Same Problem. I fixed it!

Using the control panel, the option to disable the trackball / pointer stick didn't exist. It simply wasn't there to choose.

I had a friend over you advised me to download the lastest (optional) Touchpad / Pointing Stick driver from dell.com.

Sorry but this link below is for the D820 only, but should serve as a great direction for the rest of you. After i updated the driver, the mouse window thru the control panel changed and now allowed me to disable the pointing stick. hope this helps.

You can slow it down in pointing stick settings...but not disable. Just above pointing stick settings you will see "device settings" . You can easily disable from there. It will even show you a pic of the blue dot...and you disable that one.

I had the exact same problem. just download the driver from this link and install it. then go to control panel, mouse settings, then touchpad settings. then go to device select and then click 'disable' pointing stick. this problem pissed me off alot but this is a quick solution. hope it works for you.

Yes, you can always use an external mouse wired or wireless, you may have trouble disabling the trackball, although it can be done.

Track ball requires multiple press to get it to do anything


Hi, to change the trackball or trackpad sensitivity of the BlackBerry smartphone, complete the following steps:
1) On the Home screen, go to Options > Screen/Keyboard.
2) In the Trackball or Trackpad section, click Horizontal Sensitivity or Vertical Sensitivity to change the sensitivity level.
3) Press the Menu key and select Save. The new sensitivity levels are saved.
A higher sensitivity number indicates a higher sensitivity level for the trackball or trackpad.
The trackball user interface found on certain BlackBerry smartphones is similar to the trackball used in a mouse in conjunction with a desktop computer.
In the event debris comes in contact with the trackball and affects the usability of the BlackBerry smartphone, rapidly roll the trackball up, down, left, or right to potentially correct the problem.
If rapidly rolling the trackball does not correct the problem, please contact your wireless service provider for support options.
Try to re-install the BlackBerry Device Software using the application loader tool, before you re-install the software please back up the BlackBerry smartphone data.I hope this information will be helpful to you

My trackball goes somewhere else when i try to press ok, i have to press the enter button instead.HELP ME PLEASE,please!


Trackball sensitivity too high, perhaps? When I have the trackball sensitivity up too high, I have problems clicking on links with the trackball:

Goto options, screen/keyboard (towards the end of the options menu) and lower trackball vertical sensitivity a bit (try to lower it 20 ticks first, then go from there).

Hope this helps,
Bill

Dell Laptop Trackball Too sensitive!


Easiest thing to do is to use a mouse. Just plug it in (ideally before you switch on), should automatically be recognised and away you go. I hate trackballs and the mousepads and when working on anyone elses laptop, always connect a mouse up.
