Be sure to use the latest available Dell Drivers. Browse to this page and select the settings that apply for your system. Then, under Input Device Drivers, download and install the Dell Driver: Touchpad/Pointing Stick.

Since I do not know the Operating System you are working with (xp, vista, linux,...) I can not give you more specific help.

My touch pad works with a mouse,but when I tap my touch pad nothing happen's,thats when I lef click my mouse,it will move the icon,but wont tap on toanything


This has happened to me and it took me hours to figure it out. I hope yours is the same problem...
Make sure you dont have your touch pad set to off. On my ASUS It is F9 on my keyboard. the key shows an icon of the touch pad with a slash (/) through it. If you do not see this on your keyboard try looking in control panel and see if there is a setting in there. Good Luck. Please let me know if this worked.

Hi, my laptop mouse pad works fine but at the side and bottom where i can use it to scroll down the page wont work, can sum one tell me how to get it back again, thank you


go to the control panel > mouse and pointing devices > go to device settings tab > highlight the touchpad listed and click on settings > look half way down the list where it say "scrolling" click on that and make sure both vertical and horizontal scrolling is checked. If it is and the scrolling still doesn't work,

go to control panel > device manager > scroll down to mouse and pointing devices > highlight the touchpad and disable it > wait 45 seconds, then re-enable it > hit apply and ok. Reboot

My gateway scroll wont wor9


Scroll on mouse pad may not be a "default" factory setting. Go to Control Panel and access Mouse Settings and look for this feature and activate it.

If this does not work then go to Gateway Website and look for SOFTWARE AND DRIVER DOWNLOADS ., Select your model and Operating System and look for MOUSE. Select Moust Driver Download and RUN and reinstall driver.

If both do not work than your mouse pad has to be replaced due to physical issue

HP Pavilion dv9000 scroll on mouse pad has stopped working


I figured it out! The same exact thing happens to me. To fix the problem: When you exit full screen mode, click your mouse on your internet page to make sure you are actively on that page, then hit the space bar twice. I have been using this method for a week now, and it solves the problem every time!! I hope this helps you!
