Noteboop Dell Inspiron 1501


I can scroll on my note pad but I can not click on it, I have to click on the key by the note pad to make contact.

I have gone on Cotrol panel, click on system properties, then hardware, then Device Manager, then on Mice and other pointing devices, then on Synaptics PS/2 Port touch pad and deleted it.
After that it worked for a while then it quit again.

This all happened after I clicked on a window on the bottom left corrner of the bar, I small window came up and it made a funy swerls of picture which was colored.

Can you help.

Dell latitude d430. how to disable elan smart pad

To disable the pad completely, at the top of the keyboard there should be a button to disable it. If not, there might be a combination of Fn and an F1-12 key that enables and disables it.

If you're looking just to disable the gestures "Zooming", "Scrolling, etc. Go to Start>Control Panel>Mouse and then click the Elan tab and click the "Options" button below. From there, you should have access to all the settings.

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 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.

Rate if useful.

Must hold function key down.

Hmm...first, is your "scroll lock" key lit up? if it is, you activated the number key pad for your laptop. if fn + scroll lock doesn't work, try re-installing the operating system (xp or vista) although it may be a pain :(
