Dell xps M140 laptop touchpad

I like my touchpad to be really sensitive, so I set the sensitivity where I want it, but when I close the laptop and open it again, the sensitivity is changed so that I have to press harder to move the pointer and I'm tired of having to constantly change it back to the more sensitive setting. Any ideas?

    I have a mix of issues, 1) the settings go back to default every time it is turned off. Some times i have to tap it 3-6 times to select or move the pointer from one field to another 2) when typing the text can move all over the page, like i am brushing the touch pad with my hand when typing, cause me to delete and retype many thing in the correct place

    Same problem: you close or hibernate the machine; when it restarts the touchpad is basically unresponsive. It appears to work intermittantly, then goes back to unresponsive.

    Trial & error reveals that if one presses 'really' hard on the pad, it works, but all 'tap' response gone.

    Upon reboot, all is normal.

    On mine, this behavior just started...was okay before.

How do I switch off or turn down the sensitivity on my touchpad? I have a dell inspiron 1525?

It is in the O/S software.

If your using windows you go to control panel and then find the mouse. You can change the touchpad sensitivity there.

Is there download software that will alow me to adjust my touchpad sensitivity? The touchpad on my Dell 610 laptop is much too sensitive. I cannot find the usual software on my harddrive used to decrease...

If you go in to control panel in Windows XP and in to the Mouse option you can control the mouse speed.

Alternatively the downloads for your laptop can be found here.

When I move my finger along the Touchpad it does not do what it's supposed. The pointer either doesn't move or responds in a delayed fashion. I have a dell studio 1735 laptop. Thanks.

Try updating first the touchpad drivers from the support website . If updating wont fix the problem try adjusting the mouse sensitivity to your preferred settings on control panel. Hope this helps

Cursor arbitrarly jumps to wherever it may be sitting on the screen. makes typing very difficult

This is an issue with many laptop users because the touchpad is so sensitive that while typing the cursor can be moved when the hand comes into slight contact with the touchpad. You can go into the properties of the touchpad and try reducing the sensitivity and see if that helps or disable the touchpad in the device manager and use a usb mouse.

Touch pad too sensitive, it always messes me up when I'm typing

You could try adjust the touchpad settings. Sometimes there is a touchpad icon in the taskbar that you can right click on to adjust the properties. You can also disable the pad and use a USB mouse instead.

Inspiron 1545 keyboard problem

This is going to sound really weird but I found a fix. I've got a Dell studio XPS laptop and was getting annoyed by the same phenomenon. I discovered the problem was more common when my thumbs were close to/touching the touchpad. I cranked down the sensitivity of my touchpad and things got a lot better. Probably works for many different kinds of laptops.

For my machin - Steps to fix:
Mouse Control Panel: Dell Touchpad Tab: Click to change Dell Touchpad Settings: Touchpad Settings: Touchpad Sensitivity: Move it from near "Light Touch" to the middle.

I hope this helps someone. :-)

My inspiron 1525 has a keyboard problem everytime i am typing it jumps back do you have any idea what's going on?

I've been struggling with this issue as well. I type really fast so I thought i was inadvertantly hitting the touchpad and moving the cursor. Maybe, maybe not. But today I discovered that changing one of the dafault settings for the touchpad has eliminating the jumping cursor trouble and I can type fast again without constantly checking my screen to see which line I'm actually typing in.

Here's what I did: Go to the control panel and the mouse and click on the icon for the touchpad and uncheck the touchpad setting "tap to click"

I also put my speed and sensitivity about in the mid-range. (Another suggestion that didn't work was to make my touchpad less sensitive).

Happy typing!

Sensitive touch pad

Hi, click on start and control panel. go to mouse properties. Try to look for a tab that says either touch or touchpad. you can change the sensitivity settings there. however if this doesnt work, this could only mean that this is a physical problem with the toucpad. try to apply pressure on the outer side of the touchpad. if it moves, you're gonna need a replacement palmrest.
