You might be able to get to the touchpad from the control panel, it might be under mouse, it may have an option to hide or display the icon. If you can't find it there, another possibility is START, then right click COMPUTER, choose PROPERTIES, choose DEVICE MANAGER, and find the device, it might be under 'Mice and other pointing devices' or 'Human Interface'. You can click the plus sign to expand the list. When you find the touchpad, double click it and then you'll see some options.

Cursor problem


Disabling the touchpad on a Dell Inspiron can be useful when typing for long periods of time, or using an external mouse. Bumping or tapping the touchpad while typing can cause cursor jumping and unwanted results. Use the touchpad software to enable or disable touchpad controls. Download the driver for your touchpad at the Dell Support website.

Click on the "Touchpad" icon in the task bar. If the icon doesn't appear, you can download and install the driver for the touchpad from the Dell website, or choose "Start" and "Control Panel." Choose "Device Select" on the touchpad menu, or choose "Mouse" in the "Control Panel" menu and "Device Select." Click "Disable" under "Touchpad" to turn off the touchpad, or click "Disable Touchpad/Pointing Stick When a USB Mouse is Connected."

My Advent 5421 Touchpad Is Not Working!!!


Advent laptop computers are equipped with a touchpad and two buttons that service the function of an external mouse. The touchpad can be turned on or deactivated, depending on the user's preference. It's not difficult to either activate or deactivate it.

Power up the computer. Connect a plug-and-play computer mouse to a free USB port on the laptop. The mouse is just temporary to help you get the touchpad working again. Locate the touchpad icon, which is in the lower right-hand side of the screen. The icon will appear as a gray square or rectangle, with two rectangular buttons underneath. Use the mouse to double-click on the touchpad icon, opening a window on your laptop screen. Inside the touchpad window, click the option labeled "Enable Device". Select other options for the touchpad, such as pointer speed and shape. Click "Apply", then "OK". Disconnect the mouse from the laptop.

I want to disable the touchpad on my Inspiron 1545 but I cannot even locate anything that has the word "touchpad" in it. It certainly isn't included in my Device Directory. So, do I need to...


Hello, there should be a shortcut key on your keyboard that will do that for you. It should be one of the F# keys. You should be able to hit Fn key and then one of the F# keys that will shut off your touchpad. You can also look for "smartpad" or something like that. You may have an icon next to your clock that controls the touchpad. You can turn it off there.

Thanks for using FixYa!

My laptop touchpad mouse is not working


Hi,

Check the F keys or the buttons on your computer with the touchpad icon. it looks like this (the one in red box) but it is found on one of the keys on your keyboard though. If you found it press Fn+the button with the touchpad icon and normally there comes an icon on the lower right side of your monitor that shows whether the touchpad is ENABLED or DISABLED.

Can't see the touchpad icon on the system tray


Hi! I have a Dell Inspiron 1520 laptop with a touchpad (this model is a bit older than yours). If you want to see the touchpad icon in the System Tray so that you can change the settings and so forth, here is how to do it in Windows XP:

1. Go to Start, then Control Panel, then Mouse.

2. In the Mouse Properties dialog box that pops up, look for a tab called "Dell Touchpad" and click on it to select it.

3. Click on the big picture of the touchpad with the arrow in the middle of the new dialog box that pops up.

4. You should now see a new window that says "Dell Touchpad" pop up.

5. At the bottom of the Dell Touchpad window, click the checkbox that says "Display icon in taskbar" (you should see a checkmark in this box).

6. You should now be able to see the Dell Touchpad icon in your System Tray.

7. If you still do not see the Dell Touchpad icon, or if you do not see a tab that says "Dell Touchpad," then try re-installing the driver for the Dell Touchpad by going to:

http://support.dell.com

Enter the service tag of your laptop, or its model number (Inspiron 1525), then hit the Confirm button. You should see a new window pop up that shows all the compatible drivers for your laptop. The one you will need in this case is under the section "Input Device Drivers." Look for the driver for the Dell Touchpad, download it, and then install it, if necessary.

Also, please make sure that you can see all the icons in your System Tray. If you can't, then try clicking on the little left-facing arrow in the System Tray, which will expand the System Tray to show all the icons there, and then you should be able to see the missing Dell Touchpad Icon.

I do hope this solves your problem. Please feel free to comment on my solution, and rate me as to how I did. Thank you!

I want to deactivate my touch pad on my dell inspiron 1525 laptop. Please advise how


If you do not see a Touchpad icon in your systray(lower right), go to:

Start/Control Panel/System

On the left choose "Device Manager".

Select "Mice and other pointing devices" and highlight "Dell Touchpad"

Either right click and "Uninstall" or click the uninstall icon at the top.

Restart your machine and it will automatically update the driver from Dell which will put the Touchpad icon back in the system tray.

Click on this icon and go to "Device Select"

Check the "Disable Touchpad/Pointing stick when external USB mouse id present.
