Dell inspiron n5030....touchpad not working..not showing in device man..have d/l drivers,incl synaptics.mouse device settings box emtpy.enable/disable greyed out.


Are you certain that the touchpad wasn't disabled accidentally from the Fn key? There are secondary features assigned to each of the Function (F1-F12) keys, usually in BLUE. On of them is to disable/enable the touchpad (toggle-type function, do it one time to disable, the next to enable). You press and hold the "Fn" key (next to the Windows key at bottom let of keyboard, then press the associated Function Key.

Disable Touchpad for Inspiron 1545 (This Is How To Do It!)


Way to much information it confuses me as well. There is also buttons on the touchpad as well that turns them on and off you can check the blue FN keys as well for touchpad on and off. Manuals will tell you the how for your model. That is why it is so important people to "Keep your manuals" John

Everytime i type on my raggedy *** inspiron 1545 laptop the pressure pad has me jumping all around the screen. Is mine just screwed up or is it that sensitive.


I had this exact same problem (along with many others) on my 1545. It is because of the awkward position of the touchpad that the ends of the thumbs come across and touch it and move the cursor. This is actually a pretty common thing with other manufacturers too, but it's real bad with the 1545 series. I never did figure out a way to disable it within Windows by itself, I did figure out how to stop it by using third party software. If you download a program called "TouchFreeze" it disables the touchpad whenever you are typing.

Hi my name is amyraffan and my dell inspiron 1545 touch pad/ mouse has stopped working completely it wont move and its froze in the same posiition, please help!


Hi,
there is a button to disable the touchpad near to it. check if you had accidentally clicked on that button which disables your mousepad.

If still problem not solved, then try reinstalling the touchpad device driver alone from the driver cd provided along with your laptop.

I hope this helps you.
Thanks

Hi my inspiron 1545 touchpad stopped working. external mouse is ok, but touchpad is completely dead


Right click on bottom toolbar (on desktop).. click on touchpad settings when touchpad window appears. Then again on "touchpad settings" disable TouchCheck. Next go to Zoom Settings and disable Zoom.
Its only been 10 minutes since I performed these acts.. but, so far so good.. Good luck,
