Question about Dell Inspiron N4010 Notebook
I have a Dell Inspiron N4010 Notebook whose touchpad and Left/Right buttons have stopped working. They will not move the cursor or function in any way. I checked that it was still enabled. I deleted the drivers in hopes that rebooting would reinstall. But Device manager doesn't register the touchpad and "Mouse" in control panel only sees the USB HID compliant mouse. I can use a USB mouse without difficulty. System I'm guessing there is a physical problem inside the computer but hoping there is a better answer. It may be my imagination, but the buttons feel a bit 'spongy' or something. Like maybe something was spilled on them.
Press and hold the Fn key and then hit F3 key.
Press and hold the Fn key and then hit F6 key.
Install touchpad drivers from dell website.

If you have a external mouse, or you can borrow, go into device manager to see if the pad is enabled, if okay! try a system restore bringing the computer back in time before this happened, if still no luck the sensor pad maybe defective, the last option a complete recovery of the operational system to factory setting, this will prove if the sensor pad is defective, or wire ribbon might have come loose from the motherboard.

Have you tried System Restore? If not familiar... Start Button ---> Help ---> System Restore ---> "Restore my computer to an earlier date" --> choose an appropriate date, maybe a few days earlier than the problem.
Re-boot and see if works! If you are ceratin that the problem arose simply from hibernating, then restoring should do the trick!
Hope this helps!

Click on the start menu and select "Control Panel". Once in the control panel, select "Hardware and Sound". Once in the hardware and sound menu, click on "Mouse". Once the mouse menu comes up, there should be a tab labeled "Dell Touchpad". Click on that tab and then click on the large touchpad icon to take you to the touchpad options. Once in the touchpad options menu, click on "Device Select". Once you click on deivce select you should see the option to "enable" or "disable" the touchpad.

I have the same dell computer, you have to down load the newest synaptics driver and disable the touch point mouse in the middle of the keyboard.
Here is the link.
Hope this helps!
It worked for me.

Go back into BIOS, and set that screen to Default Settings. Be sure to save your changes.
