SOURCE: DELL 1501 TOUCH PAD BUTTONS DO NOT WORK AT ALL. HELP.

This could be a hardware or software (windows) problem.

If it is hardware it could be as simple as the connector ribbon inside is loose or that the touch-pad unit is failing. A replacement is $30-$80 plus labour.

I've seen a few of these where the problem is windows acting up. Since you have tried the drivers and they didn't fix it what you can try is go to control panel - system - hardware - device manager - mice and other pointing devices

Open that and select and then delete the pointing device or mouse shown. Then reboot. Windows is now forced to detect the touchpad hardware and reinstall the drivers. That usually does the trick unless it is hardware caused.

Now the tricky bit. Once you delete the mouse you will have to close and reboot using only your keyboard. You need windows to reboot normally, you can't just pull the power cord. To do this use ALT-F4. Hold down the ALT key and press the F4 that will close the windows until you get back to the windows desktop where it will close down windows. When you start the computer again your mouse will be detected and will work again. What we won't know is if that is enough to reset things and get your buttons working until you try this. You can try this a few times but generally if the drivers are right and you have done this then its time to replace the touch-pad.

I recently deleted some old files and temp files to free up disc space and when i rebooted, the scroll on the right side of the mouse pad is not working the buttons are and the double click function is too...


Hi,
The files in temp folder can be safely deleted and have nothing to do with touch pad atleast. Something else might have gone wrong. Just check from the Device Manager or Control Pannel that the drivers for touch pad are installed. If so, check for the scroll option (synaptics touch pad utility) and set it accordingly.
If it doesn't work, you may download and reinstall the touch pad drivers again from the manufacturers support site.

Hope it helps! Good Luck!

I can't use for scrolling up and down from the right side of mouse pad, how to setting it? thx


Sometimes there is a setting, under mouse, in the control panel. But also there is a time based issue, you need to stop while pressing in the scroll area, and the mouse shifts from mousing to scrolling. Duration of time, and first touch to the pad in the scroll area are keys.

I dont want to be able to select something just by touching the little pad, i want to hafta left click, I'm constantly accidentally selecting something, just by touching it.


You can adjust your keyboard and the touch pad , controls with the adjustments in the menu for mouse and keypad options.
Also you can use the personal settings to get this right for your touch , adjusting the sensitivity accordingly

Touch pad doesn't work


Determine What's Wrong
laptop'smag-glass_10x10.gif touch pad basically provides the functionality of a mouse for a desktop PC, typically with two buttons located just below it acting as the left and right click buttons on a desktop computer. A touch pad may be damaged by excessive use or foreign substances such as water, dirt or food items.

Hit the "Windows" button on the keyboard and then use the right-left keys (or hit 'C') to open "Control Panel." From there, again use the right-left keys to get to "Mouse" and then hit "Return."

Use the right-left keys to toggle between the tabs and open each to investigate whether any boxes had been improperly clicked by accident that cause the touch pad to become unresponsive. But if any of these steps fail to remedy the problem, then the touch pad may need to be repaired or replaced.

Repairing/Replacing TouchpadA touch pad assembly cost $100 or more and that's not including replacement installation. Hiring a specialist to replace a damaged touch pad, including parts and labor, may easily cost $200. Unless the laptop in question is worth well over $1,000 and the touch pad is deemed a necessity, such repairs are rarely worth the cost.

Attempting to replace the touch pad without certain expertise in laptop assembly may be dangerous and/or destructive. Also, getting a replacement part that's not compatible with the laptop may have catastrophic results, including irreversible damage to the laptop.So just attach a mouse to it so you can work easily.Please rate me if this solution works for you

Thanks......Have a great time.

Doubt it. Seems like a bad fault, maybe it's worthwhile contacting whoever you bought it off - it sounds like a faulty good.

Mouse is not responding at all


you need to go to device manager...
right click "my Computer"
select "manage"
select "device manager"
click the + sign for "mice and other pointing devices"
select your touch pad...

try to enable it or find what is wrong from there

You'll need a USB mouse or something of that ilk to do it.

good luck

Dell XPS 1330 touchpad scroll areas quit working


Hi Patrick,
The most likely problem is that the ribbon cable from the touch pad is not making proper connection with the motherboard.
I would recommend you get this repaired under warranty, there is a bit of work involved in pulling the laptop apart to get to this cable & connector and if you do something wrong it could void your warranty.

I can give you instructions if you wish to try and fix it yourself.
Let me know.
