The best option is download the driver from the vendors site and then install it.
Even if its not the updated no problem.
Just re-installing the driver should resolve the issue.

Can't shut off touch pad for typing, Dell N5050


Make sure the Alps Pointing Device Driver (for the touch pad) is loading at startup so you get the option to toggle this on/off with the Fn/F3 key combination.

Start->Search msconfig should get you the program you need to run to check- look under startup tab and ensure the Alps Pointing Device driver is checked.so it's loading at startup.

Hope this helps.

Jumping Cursor on ALPS Touchpad?


If you experience a jumping cursor where it jumps from one line to another, go to this link and download the driver for ALPS pointing device. This is from Toshiba (thanks to them for having the most updated touchpad driver) but regardless of your computer, IT WORKS!!!

http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/download.jsp?ct=DL&soid=2475604&ref=EV

After downloading the driver
>Go to Control Panel
>Open Mouse icon
>Go to Advanced Tab
>Click on the Advance Configuration Button
>Mark the following options with a check:
•disable tapping
•disable pointer movement
•disable scroll function
>Click Apply
>Try typing on a word pad

How to used the touch pad


Use the touch pad to move the pointer around the screen.
Run your finger over the touch pad in the direction you want the pointer to move and then click the left touch bar (this works as the left button on a mouse).

When using the touch pad the pointer is too sentitive. It jumps around the page and opens sites, files, folders, ets as it passes over them before i get to the site/folder that i want opened. I removed...


My opinion about this is:
You can use this "touch pad" but you need to run at start up an application called "Synaptics Touchpad". (This is the link)

http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/download.aspx?c=us&cs=19&l=en&s=dhs&releaseid=R120179&SystemID=INS_PNT_1501&servicetag=&os=WW1&osl=en&deviceid=283&devlib=0&typecnt=0&vercnt=1&catid=17&impid=-1&formatcnt=0&libid=17&typeid=-1&dateid=-1&formatid=-1&source=-1&fileid=160150

This application allow you to manage the touch pad, I think better than the control panel.

Not only in this laptop, the touch pad make you mad. A good practice is to turn it off when you are typing and turn it on when you need it.

Good luck.

My cursor jumps around. Why?


(1) If you are using a laptop for typing text and your cursor is jumping around while you are working with a touch pad then it is a common defect in many Laptops. The solution to this is that you disable the touch pad by pressing down Fn key and selecting the appropriate Function key. You have to use a mouse.
(2) If you are using a desktop and the cursor is jumping then it is a very high probability that you have a virus in your computer. Take a updated virus cleaner/remover and scan/clean your system.

Alps pointer device driver


Dont give much pressure or harder press over the area and on the keyboard on your laptop. If any pressure on top area will makes your touch pad to start working all laptop has it option to off it . Also make your mouse sensitivity very low - if you set it in high a small movement or any kind or pressure over that can make it on.
