Dell windows 7 mouse returns to stylus's last point

Dell M4600 laptop with stylus. The touchpad or mouse can move, but it instantly bounces back to the last point the stylus had touched. Even when the stylus is no where in the room on boot up, it will snag the mouse (on boot to the top left of the screen). I haven't figured out how to allow the mouse/touchpad to work normally.

Do you have installation software for the stylus? If so, I'd reinstall it and reboot. There should be a setting for you to disable the stylus. You might go to your control panel and try that. Then you can have more time to figure out what went wrong.

SOURCE: "sticky" mouse on compaq laptop

Unless your left mouse button has been severely damaged, it is unlikely that a loose button is the cause of your problem. More likely, it is your touchpad. Chances are your touchpad is set to click when tapped. Oversensitive touchpads can click randomly when you're dragging your finger across the touchpad.

To test this, position your cursor over a link (or other button) but don't press the left mouse button. Instead, lightly tap the touchpad itself. If the link or button is clicked, go to your Control Panel and adjust the Mouse options so your touchpad no longer clicks when tapped. It's usually a setting titled "tap to click" or something along those lines.

Javabytes

SOURCE: Dell D600 LCD issue

What I've found on two laptops I've worked on in the past two years is that in a case like this, there is a little pin near the power button (or on the strip up near the display) that tells the laptop when the monitor is closed.  If that pin gets stuck, the computer will think it's shut all of the time.  The sensor is only active in normal mode of windows with the drivers installed (if it's in safe mode or VGA mode  the sensor does not work until you raise the resolution.  the sensor doesn't work at all if you boot from a knoppix cd.)

You may be able to just flick the pin and get it unstuck, but in some cases you have to remove it all togther.

To remove it, turn the lapotp off. lean the monitor back as far as it can go (don't force it). You then need to carefuly pry up the strip that the power button is on (ussually there is a space you can pry open on the left or right side of the strip depending on the model laptop; be very careful not to break anything).  You can then pop it out with a small knife or tweesers and clip the strip back down.

If you don't feel comfortable doing this, then find someone who is.

I hope this helps someone.

Try unistalling the touchpad driver, and reboot. The machine will find the touchpad and reinstall the driver automatically. These have a tenancy to glitch when using an external mouse, and this should clear it up. Let me know.

SOURCE: dell latitude c610 touch pad left button problem

Will your laptop work properly with an external mouse? If so, check your touchpad settings in "Control Panel" by selecting "Mouse". Here you can reassign your Buttons. Try setting your Right Button function to "Double Click". If the "Double Click" function works on your Right Button then chances are you have a problem with your Touchpad Assembly which means it will have to be replaced. Dell refers to it as a "Palmrest" which they will replace if still under warranty.

Do not check the check box as leaving the touchpad enabled while using an external mouse will not cause any harm.

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.

    I can not disable touchpad of INSPIRON 1545 of DELL Computers There is no option for disabling touch pad in the MOUSE option of Control Panel


    Go to the Control Panel. Under the 'Hardware and Sound' options, click 'Mouse'immortal4u.png

    Since you have a Dell laptop, you'll have a special tab called 'Dell touchpad' in the window that pops up. Click on the touchpad picture in the window.

    immortal4u_0.png
    In the new window that appears, click 'Device Select'
    immortal4u_1.png

    Click on the 'Disable' radio button to disable the touchpad completely. If you want to disable the touchpad of your Dell laptop only when an external device like a mouse is attached, check the last option that says 'Disable Touchpad/Pointing Stick when external USB mouse is present'

    immortal4u_2.png

    That's it. You've disabled your laptop's touchpad for good. If you don't find an option to manage your touchpad in Mouse settings, you have to install Synaptics drivers from here. Similar options can be found in other laptops as well.

    Good luck ! if your problem is solved don't forget to rate

    My daughter has a dell laptop. the mouse is not working. she wasn't able to right click now she can't use it at all. she feels she might have disabled it.


    Hi, most probably you are refering to the built-in touch pad on the laptop, because a mouse is actually an external device, which can also be used on a laptop. But, I am presuming that you are refering to the touchpad, rather than a mouse, since it is a laptop.
    There are 2 possibilities :-
    1) there my be a hardware failure, as far as the touchpad component is concerned. And how do you find this out ?
    Is your duaghter's Dell Laptop still covered under Hardware Warranty from Dell ? If yes, then call Dell Hardware Technical Support 1-800-624-9896 (24/7) , (I am presuming that you are in the US) and they would diagnose (at no charge) whether there is any hardware failure with the laptop's touchpad component. If there is, then Dell would send you a technician and get it replaced.
    If your daughter's Dell laptop does NOT have a Hardware Warranty, then Dell Dell Hardware Technical Support would charge you US$ 59.00 as a diagnostics fee, to provide phone support, in order to diagnose if the touchpad is defective or not.
    Incase your daughter's Dell laptop does NOT have a Hardware Warranty, then try what is mentioned in point # 2 below, before you spend US$ 59.00 as a diagnostics fee.
    2) The second and most likely reason for the issue is that the settings for the touchpad have been changed. You can get the settings corrected using the Dell Touchpad Utility. If you are using vista or windows 7, just type in " Dell Touchpad Utility " in the start search option, by clicking on the windows start logo on the left side of the taskbar, open the Dell Touchpad Utility, and correct the settings, for example, right click may be disabled, etc.
    You may even re-install the driver for the touchpad, by going to www.support.dell.com, click on support for home users, Drivers and Downloads, then enter either the service tag of the Dell Laptop or select the model, you will get a concise list of drivers for your specific product model : from there, download & re-install the touchpad;s driver listed in Input Device Drivers, after which reboot the laptop and the issue most probably should get resolved.
    It would have been nice to know the exact model of the Dell Laptop and the Operating System that is running on it.
    But, please do try the above and I hope the issue gets resolved.

    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.
