Question about Dell F3534 Touchpad

1 Answer

Dell Inspiron 600M Touchpad stopped working

My laptop went beserk suddenly. While IE was open, moving the touchpad seemed to result in other system processes turning on / off - for example, my wireless radio antenna was disabled, which luckily, I found out from the Help notes could be reenabled with Fn-F2. However, the next time my laptop went beserk, the wireless radio antenna quit working AND my touchpad quit working. I plugged in the USB mouse and THANK GOD that works! Not sure what the problem is. Laptop does overheat, so have it on frozen lasagna right now - with towel in between laptop and lasagna. It also didn't have updated AVG virus protection so am downloading that now too and will run in just a moment to make sure I don't have a virus.

Any other thoughts on how to restore the touchpad? Also, I'm using Firefox, not IE since each time computer went beserk while I had IE open.

Hi

first things first, do take ur laptop off the towel (as this blocks air flow) and place it on a flat surface but slightly elevated to allow better air flow, a better alternative is a notebook cool pad.

Dell touch pad not working


The touchpad on a Dell laptop is usually located under the keyboard. Moving the finger on the pad moves the pointer on the screen. The buttons near the pad act as a right and left click. Windows includes a method to troubleshoot the touchpad. In addition, if the touchpad is still giving you issues, Dell recommends draining the "flea" power the standby power from the computer to restart it. Both methods are simple and only take a few minutes.

Open the control panel from the Start menu. Click on "Mouse." This will open a window with several tabs. On the first tab, click the touchpad to open a new window to change the settings for your touchpad. You can customize the settings to how you want your touchpad to work. If this does not solve your issue, proceed to the next step. Click the Hardware tab on the screen that pops up. Select the Dell Touchpad and click "Troubleshoot." A new window will open with the Windows Help and Support Center to bring you through methods for troubleshooting the touchpad. Follow the methods described until your touchpad is working properly. Drain flea power Shut down the laptop and disconnect all external devices, such as a thumb drive, headphones and the AC adapter power cable from the system. Take the battery out of the laptop. Hold down the power button for at least 5 seconds without releasing it. Return the battery back to the laptop. Power the system on. If your touchpad still is not working properly, call Dell for customer support.

Turn your Inspiron 1525 off and remove any power cables that are connected to the device. Close the computer, turn it over and slide the battery lock button down to release the rectangular battery from its compartment on the underside of the computer. Turn your laptop right-side up and open the computer so the monitor is facing you. Insert the tip of your flat-head screwdriver in the seam between the plastic keyboard guard and the side of the computer. The keyboard guard is located just above the keyboard. Pry up on the guard until it pops out of place. Be sure to do this gently, as you do not want to damage the guard. Remove the guard from the computer and set it aside. The two keyboard screws will now be visible underneath where the guard used to sit. Use your Phillips screwdriver to remove the two keyboard screws and use the tips of your fingers to lift the keyboard up from the top. Place the keyboard facedown over the touchpad and locate the thick connector ribbon that runs from the motherboard inside the computer to the back of the keyboard. Use your fingers to gently unplug the ribbon from the back of the keyboard and set it aside. Insert the tip of your screwdriver in the seam at the bottom of where the keyboard used to rest and gently pry it up. This will release the top plastic frame from the Inspiron, revealing all of the broken touchpad. Use your fingers to disconnect the thick ribbon from the side of the damaged touchpad and slide the touchpad out of the Inspiron. Slide the new Touchpad (available from your Dell retailer or online) in its place, fit the top frame in place and reassemble the computer in the reverse order you took it apart in.

Dell Inspiron N5040 touchpad not working while charging


If battery works and ac adapter has problems that means electrolytic capacitors maybe dried up(not supplying the current needed to run the laptop) and has to be cured by using the laptop more often.

    Dell Inspiron 600m touchpad.


    Hi,

    Start by uninstalling the touchpad drivers, don't reinstall them as there is really no need for the drivers unless you want to use the scrolling features.

    Then I'd also check the hard drive for bad sectors, volume errors and fix them. This is because if the hard drive is holding data like video drivers, touchpad drivers or any other information on a part of the drive which has bad sectors then the operating will start to act up like freezing, taking a long time to boot up etc.

    If you don't find any errors on the drive then it is a possibility that the operating system itself has become degraded.

    All you have to do to fix the problem is start as if you was going to reinstall XP, but when you see the option to repair the operating system choose that (not the recovery console option), that way any data stored in My Documents folder will be left untouched.

    Good luck and please post back if you need anymore help or advice.

    Regards.
