Question about Dell F3534 Touchpad

1 Answer

Touch pad doesn't work AT ALL!!!!

I have a lenovo laptop a 6530 series, and I have a logitech mouse. My touch pad is not working.
The device manager isn't helping either, it says it is installed (the driver, and up to date) yet the things still doesn't work. I tried uninstalling it and then installing it again, yet when I go under hardware and mouse, all I see are options for the logitech mouse.

Please help me out, I have no idea what to do. (p.s. I upgraded my computer from windows vista business to windows 7 thinking that, that might help too, and it didn't)

Thanks,
Kasie

Hello there, Kasie!

Hopefully I can help. On laptops, there will *usually* be a "function button" one can press to disable the touchpad in the even that one wishes to use an actual mouse instead of the touchpad. -- This would be in the interest of not accidentally triggering clicks, or mouse movement when typing, etc.

Without knowing the make and model of your laptop, I can't tell you the precise button to press to re-activate your touchpad. On most laptops, you'll need to hold down the "Fn" key (usually at the bottom left or right of the keyboard) and then find the function key (top row of keys... F1, F2, F3, F4 and so-forth)... Look at your function key row. See if there is perhaps a key with a little "drawing on it" that looks like a touchpad.. like a horizontal rectangle with 2 smaller squares under the rectangle, representing the rectangular shape of the touchpad and the two "mouse buttons" beneath it... if you find something like this, it will likely be the one you'll need to press.

However, on some laptops, the button will be just above your touchpad... you'll be able to press it, and some sort of indicator light will either light up in red to let you know it's been deactivated, or white / green to let you know that it's currently activated.

One of my laptops which is an HP has the button at the top left corner of my touchpad.. I have to "double-tap" it to deactivate / reactivate the touchpad; while my Toshiba laptop has a button directly above the touchpad which I only have to press once. -- Both laptops have an indicator light as well. The HP's "double-tap button" will turn red / dark orange to let me know that I've deactivated it... With the Toshiba laptop, there is a light just below the touchpad area which is always lit up as a "bright white light bar" when active and simply not lit up when deactivated.

I wish you the best of luck with this, and hope I've helped you!

My mouse pad cursor do move but it doest whant to enter if i tab on it


some touch pads have a setting that must be set to allow a tap to be interpreted as a click. Go to Start-->control panel-->mouse, and look for a setting that tells the touch pad to allow it to sense clicks on the touch pad instead of requiring a button to be pressed. If not, try updating your touch pad driver. Start, right click on computer, click on Manage, when computer management window opens, click on the device manager in the left pane. Find mice and other pointing devices in the middle pane, and click the small triangle to the left of it, to expand it. Find the one under there that stands for your touch pad, and right-click on it, and click "Update Driver software." make sure you are connected to the internet first, and let it connect to Windows Update to see if it can find a newer driver.

Touch pad does not operate. have uninstalled and reinstalled correct driver and PC device manager says device is working properly with no conflicting programs. generally, the pad did not really operate...


Hello,

it is possible that the touch pad is disabled. Check control panel to actually confirm.

Since your touch pad is not operating, you will need an external mouse to perform this task.

Here is what you have to do to check if the touch pad is disabled.

Turn on your laptop, wait till it boots completely.

Click start,

Scroll to Control Panel select Control Panel.

Under control panel, (you will find a Mouse icon), click Mouse and a dialogue box will pop out.

On the dialogue box, click "Device settings".

Under device settings, you will find "Synaptics Touchpad..."

Highlight the "Synaptics Touchpad..." by clicking on it once, then click enable.

By now the mouse pad should be enabled. Apply the changes for it to take affect.

If the above doesn't solve the problem, try performing system. System restore can help to back date your computer to the time when the touch pad was working....

Go to Start > All programs > Accessories > System tools > System restore. Read and follow instructions.....

If the two solutions does not work, please let me so that I can further help you.

Yours sincerely.
