Key Pad or Touchpad? Is it that the mouse pointer is frozen and does not work? If so, look at the middle of the touchpad at the top of it and there might be a button there that lets you toggle the touchpad between locked and unlocked.

Sometimes there might be a set of keystrokes you will have to hit to lock or unlock the keypad. Most times you will have to Press and Hold the Alt, FN or Ctrl key then hit the key (most times one of the F1 thru F12 keys) that controls the keypad. The key that controls the keypad will have the icon of a finger inside or pointing at a square that represents the keypad. On one laptop recently that I worked on it was toggled by Pressing and Holding the ALT key then hit the F6 key. F6 had a finger pointing at a square area representing the touchpad.

I have a dell xps M1330. Its mouse pad is behaving weird. If I try using it, it doesnt work but if I keep holding a shortcut key(play/stop/volume keys) while using the mouse pad it works fine. Any help?


hi,

your mouse pad dose not connect to the ground of device so when you keep and hold any

shortcut of keyboard , this connection done , and mouse pad work.

for this you (if you can) or a technician must remove the keyboard and change the flat cable

between mouse pad and devise .


good luck

Keypad stack up


Just want to verify which key pad you referring to? The alpha numeric keypad or the touch pad for the mouse pointer control?

Try this first. Power on laptop then hold down F2, check if you can access BIOS. If yes try F8 then boot to safe mode. Check if you can login to windows in safe mode. If yes then do a system restore from the date where every thing was working fine.

Else replace the keyboard and keyboard cable.

How to unlock keypad?


Hi Alina,
I guess you are having a problem with the mouse pad, on the left side you will notice one orange light on the pad, simply tap twice the pad the light will goes off and the pad will start working again,
I hope it will solve your problem
