    The Solution!! Thanks to....myself:) I tried everything, re-istallation, formatting, cleaning everything up, resetting the bios, nothing worked!! GUESS WHAT THE PROBLEM IS?! The Battery!!! Somehow, despite the battery charging and retaining the charge and appearing to function normally, as soon as the battery is connected, these problems appear!! Take the battery out and run the laptop off the mains and everything works Perfect!!! When I discovered this, I also remembered a friend of mine, who has a similar problem with his Acer which is the Travelmate 2313, while the battery is connected, the laptop will not start. Run it off the mains, and it works fine!! Oh well....who knows why?! Important thing is, Problem was fixed. Thank you- me:)

My laptop is only a few months old, and the touchpad randomly stopped working....what can i do?

If you have already tried another mouse and works fine in Windows OS then the problem gets narrowed down to the touchpad being faulty and would have to replace it but don't discard the touchpad could be accidently disabled in the control panel of the mouse properties. Dell laptops usually have a driver chipset and driver for the mouse touchpad specifically which you can get on

try reinstalling before getting new touchpad part for your laptop. Dell has spareparts where you can buy a refurb one and install yourself. Instructions on how to take apart your laptop is on the same site.

My laptop touchpad is not working dell inspiron n5010

you will have to reinstall the drivers and the sofware in your Dell. I think since the touch pad is not working if you use the cursor keys and proceed to the control panel and try to restore the laptop, then if this will reset to an earlier date, then it will solve the issue.
try this out and check to reinstall drivers. hope this helps. Good day

Dead keyboard and touchpad at login prompt

Try downloading ubuntu linux live cd. You can boot directly into linux without installing it. See if your keyboard and touchpad work in there. If not then it is a hardware problem. If it does work you may want to consider backing up your files and reinstalling windows.

My Touch pad does not work, can someone help? the touchpad suddenlly stops working while i was using it

try to remove battery. Turn on you computer without battery. battery can cause keyboard and mouse not working.
also make sure your touchpad is enable by using fn+F7
if this is still doesn't work, it's mean your touchpad itself is bad.
