Try going into Control Panel, Mouse, Tapping and turn it all off.
Set the sensitivity to as low as you can.
The key combination should be Fn & F9, look for a button on the function row that has a finger pointing at a box :)

Install the latest touchpad driver from support.dell.com

There is a setting in the touchpad tab of the mouse driver. Either Enable PalmCheck or Disable touchpad when typing (Depends on Synaptics or Alps drive I believe)

With palmcheck enabled, the touchpad is disabled when typing

Tochpad Right button do not function.


If the laptop is less than a year old then it maybe able to be repaired under warranty.
The touchpad contains electronic components just like a mouse, and a fault could develope like any electronic device.
First thing, go into the BIOS configuration and set the BIOS configuration back to the default settings, then save, exit and reboot the laptop.
If this doesn't fix the problem then connect and use an USB mouse instead of the touchpad.

I have a dell inspiron 1525 and the touchpad is only partially functional. The left half works okay, but the right half is very sluggish. Can anyone tell me how to fix this?


How about go to www.dell.com and download the Dell touch for your laptop with the operating system you are using. First uninstall Dell touch by using ADD/REMOVE in the control Panal. Then install the downloaded DELL Touch. You may need to restart your laptop. all of the touchpad keys should work now.

Good LUCK !
