Question about Dell Latitude D410 Notebook
Upon boot-up this AM my heretofor trouble free d410 stopped recognizing battery and cursor became unstable after normal shut-down last evening. Under settings, system, power mgt the battery icons indicate "not present" which is erroneous. Pulled the battery and reinserted - - no joy. Using logitech trackball on usb port appears to stabilize cursor.
As a one time Dell Field technician I've seen the battery problem many times before--
Your motherboard has likely gone bad. No real relation to the touch pad problem, but I would replace the motherboard before attempting to diagnose the touchpad.
Swapping the battery with a known good one would be a nice first step if you have a spare (or you know someone with the same model laptop), but it will likely confirm the motherboard as the problem.
