Question about Dell Inspiron 6400 Notebook

Touchpad not working

I recently got a bluescreen on a dell inspiron 6400. After rebooting, the touchpad no longer worked. The touchpad no longer shows up under the hardware tab in the mouse settings. I tried reinstalling the driver, and doing a system restore. I've also tried the fn+f7, still no luck. Unless Im doing it at the wrong time. Any ideas? Im not sure how much a new touchpad would cost(in GB), or where to get one.

Hello, my best solution would be to check ebay and order one there. If you are familiar with removing the power button bezel, do so and remove the keyboard as well. Then check the connection for the mouse. Its a small little ribbon cable coming from the mouse area.
Here is a direct link you can get these parts from:

I hope you have a great day, Please rate my solution.

Tap to click does not work dell inspiron 1501


Tap to click is the feature of the touchpad driver. Uninstall any existing touchpad drivers and then restart the computer.
Go to www.support.dell.com enter the computer service tag and get the drivers for the touchpad from there. Also update the BIOS of your computer to the most recent version. In most cases a part replacement is not needed and the issue should be fixed.

I have a dell xps 1330 and the touch pad stopped working abruptly. Now there is an icon that looks like a note pad and pen to the center left of the display. What did I do, and how can I get the touchpad...


had a similar problem on a laptop i was working on - the touchpad quit immediately after an update.

try using an external USB mouse and then reinstall the driver for it - that's what fixed it for me.
