Dell Inspiron 1501 Touchpad locked up

I have a dell inspiron 1501 that the touch pad is locked up. I have restarted the computer several times, I can use the ''enter'' to ''start normally'' so I know it is not the keyboard....I have tried fn-F9 several times, I have also taken the battery in & out & tried to start with and without it and still my touchpad doesn't work, the cursor arrow just sits in the middle of the screen.

Check the system setup F2 at start, and ensure the touchpad is enabled, next try an external mouse, see if it works.
If and external mouse works, the touch pad has failed and a new palmrest is needed.

I have to hit touch pad 3-4 times to work when doing anything Dell Inspiron 1501


Make sure you have the latest touchpad driver from support.dell.com, then in the touchpad settings (Control panel, Mouse, touchpad tab) adjust the sensitivity.
If adjusting the sensitivity has no effect then it may just be wearing out, which would mean a palmrest replacement. Those are around $20

Tap to click does not work dell inspiron 1501


Tap to click is the feature of the touchpad driver. Uninstall any existing touchpad drivers and then restart the computer.
Go to www.support.dell.com enter the computer service tag and get the drivers for the touchpad from there. Also update the BIOS of your computer to the most recent version. In most cases a part replacement is not needed and the issue should be fixed.
