Question about Dell F3534 Touchpad

Can't "tap" on my Dell touchpad

Cant find the touchpad toolbar. How can I find it to change the setting? When I "tap" on the touchpad, it doesn't work anymore; I have to actually "click" like a real mouse. It just stopped and I don't know where to turn on that function again.

    Thanks weinbach_s! I was able to get it to work again.



    It's strange that there wasn't anything in the Control Panel, where it should've been.

I had the same problem after purchasing an HP laptop with a Synaptics TouchPad. After using a wireless mouse for awhile, the TouchPad stopped working. The TouchPad light was white, indicating it was enabled. No TouchPad devices was listed anymore in the Mouse Properties in the Control Panel. I tried reloading the driver but nothing changed.

After shutting down the laptop and removing the battery (according to owner’s manual) it worked again. After turning on the laptop, make sure the TouchPad works. Then go to Control Panel, Mouse, Device Settings tab, and make sure a Synaptics TouchPad is listed in the Devices list and that the Enable button is grayed out.

Go to 'Control Panel' and double click on the mouse icon. A window should open with several tas across the top. The last one on mine is "Touch Pad On/Off". Select that one if you have it. There you should e able to turn the settings back on. If you don't have some of this I think you need to reinstall your touch pad driver. If your computer is quite new, I suggest you go to the Dell web site and download the latest driver for your touchpad if you can. Some sites don't have drive downloads any more or your computer is too new that they have not set up driver downloads for it. Best of luck.

My Dell Inspiron M5030 Laptop Touchpad is not working at all. The settings could not load. What should I do to solve this problem?


Hi,

If the settings of the touchpad doesn't load, you need to reinstall or update the touchpad driver. You can go to "Device Manager" or Dell website and download an updated driver.

Hope this helps.

You can tried to up date the driver. If you go to dell.com you can find the driver and download. If not you need to replace the touchpad.

Our touchpad is not responding to tapping. It


Go into the BIOS (F2). Press Alt-P until you reach "Page 4 of 7". Under "Pointing Device" change the setting from "PS/2-Touchpad" to "PS/2". Reboot.
The touchpad and point stick will still function as long as there isn't a mouse plugged into the PS/2 port. If the mouse is plugged in, it will override the integrated devices.

I owned a Dell(inspiron 1420) touchpad is not functioning at all!


Try going into Control Panel, Mouse, Tapping and turn it all off.
Set the sensitivity to as low as you can.
The key combination should be Fn & F9, look for a button on the function row that has a finger pointing at a box :)

Brand new dell xps laptop, touchpad will not scroll.


The Dell touchpad settings can be accessed in Vista by going to Start -> Control Panel -> Hardware and Sound -> Mouse. If the box that appears when you open the mouse properties doesn't say anything about dell then you need to install the driver for the touchpad. To do this go to http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/index.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen and then click "Enter a Tag", then enter your service tag, which can be found on the underside of your computer, into the box and click "Go". After selecting the operating system that is running on the machine click the little + icon next to "Imput Device Drivers" and once that expands download and install the one that says "Dell - Driver Applies to Touchpad / Pointing Stick". Once it is installed the computer may need to restart.

My inspiron 1525 has a keyboard problem everytime i am typing it jumps back do you have any idea what's going on?


I've been struggling with this issue as well. I type really fast so I thought i was inadvertantly hitting the touchpad and moving the cursor. Maybe, maybe not. But today I discovered that changing one of the dafault settings for the touchpad has eliminating the jumping cursor trouble and I can type fast again without constantly checking my screen to see which line I'm actually typing in.

Here's what I did: Go to the control panel and the mouse and click on the icon for the touchpad and uncheck the touchpad setting "tap to click"

I also put my speed and sensitivity about in the mid-range. (Another suggestion that didn't work was to make my touchpad less sensitive).

Happy typing!

Touch Pad


In the touchpad settings (Control Panel, Mouse) see if tap to click is enabled, if so uncheck and see if there is any difference. Also try booting in the safe mode, and see if that changes anything (F8 during boot to access safe mode) If no difference, then you'll likely need a new palmrest to fix the touchpad. If the touchpad works normally in the safe mode, try a new touchpad driver from support.dell.com

READ THIS POST NOT THE OTHERS. you can configure each of the four corners of the TouchPad surface to act as different buttons when tapped. These corner regions are called Tap Zones. to disable this feature goto control panel, mouse, device settings, settings, tapping, tap zones, disable tap zones.
