Mouse pad won't work


Reinstall the driver for the touch pad. If tha still doesn't work, I would suspect the touch pad itself and buy a new touch pad for your laptop, or an external usb/wireless mouse.

My touch pad not working probably .


Adel Heider,

You may want to first download the driver and install it into the system from the link below.

Erratic Pointer Movement


Here are some easy steps to take to determine the problem with a touch pad demonstrating erratic pointer movement:
  1. Get the latest driver from support.dell.com - Most problems can be corrected with a simple driver download. This should always be one of the first steps when diagnosing any touch pad problem.
  2. Check for hand and finger placement - The most common cause of random pointer movement is that the touch pad senses a finger or part of the hand near the surface of the device.
    • Have the customer attempt to use the touch pad normally but to pay attention to the location of his or her hands and fingers. Are any straying too close to the touch pad?
    • Adjust the Touch Sensitivity and TouchCheck settings in the Touch Pad Settings section of the Dell Touchpad Properties.
  3. Try an external mouse - Does this problem happen with an external mouse attached?
    • The Device Select section of the Dell Touchpad Properties has options to enable or disable the touch pad or external mouse. Try several combinations of these settings.
    • If the problems only occur when the touch pad is enabled and do not occur any time a mouse or other external device is used, then the issue is related to the touch pad.
  4. Check for mechanical problems - If the problem cannot be corrected by adjusting the settings mentioned above and only occurs with the touch pad enabled, then this could indicate a mechanical problem.
    • Press down on the palm rest on first the left side of the touch pad and then the right. See if the cursor starts moving on its own.
    • Run Dell 32-bit Diagnostics and try to recreate the problems there. If either of these situations occur, then replace the palm rest.

No Pointer Movement


No pointer movement from the touch pad (or track stick, if available) usually is the result of one of two things: The touch pad has been disabled in the driver interface, or the touch pad cable is damaged or disconnected. Follow the steps below to determine the problem.
  1. Connect an external mouse - In either situation, an external mouse should still function. If it does not, try booting into Safe Mode and testing both devices again.
  2. Enable the touch pad in the driver settings - Using the external mouse (or key strokes if no mouse is available), go into the Dell Touchpad Properties. Go to the Device Select section and enable the touch pad. If already enabled, get the latest driver from support.dell.com.
  3. Test the device in Dell 32-bit Diagnostics - To eliminate a potential software problem, run the Dell 32-bit Diagnostics and test the device here.
  4. Check for mechanical problems - As a last resort, press down on the palm rest where the touch pad connector is located on the system board. If the pointer reacts in some way, then the cable may just need to be reseated. Otherwise, replace the palm rest.

My cursor does not move with the touchpad, only with the external mouse.


Not sure what OS you have, so I'm giving generic advice here:
under computer management or hardware, launch your Device Manager.
Scroll down the device manager to "mice and pointing devices".
Click the "+" to expand the list.
Find your touchpad on the list and right click it.
Select properties.
In the window, look for a way to enable the device.
Click OK.
It should work.

I have an IBM ThinkPad T42 and until a few minutes ago my touch pad was working with no problems. I installed a wireless mouse and that works fine. But I cannot control the cursor with the touch pad or red...


Try going to Start>Control Panel>Printer and other Hardware and look for mouse pad or something like that. I think the problem is that you can only use either the mouse pad or the mouse, can't use them both at the same time.

My hp dv6000 pointing device is not working correctly it goes crazy when i try to use it


This mouse touch pad is very sensitive to outside devices.
If you are using any external devices, disconnect them and try the fallowing.
Go to your device manager and find mouse or pointing devices and remove them.
Save and reboot the unit.
The unit will find the correct drivers which are loaded on your hard drive under SWsetup.
After loading the drivers and the unit has settled into a idle mode, reboot the unit and check the operation of the mouse-touch pad.
If this has taken care of the problem, load whatever devices you were using, one at a time.
If you notice the mouse starts acting up, it will be one of the external devices you have connected.
If the mouse still does not correctly and you are not using any external devices, you may want to disable the mouse-touch pad and hook up a USB mouse. ( Standard or wireless ).
I hope this has helped you.

Dell Inspiron 6000 Alps Touchpad not working


Try unistalling the touchpad driver, and reboot. The machine will find the touchpad and reinstall the driver automatically. These have a tenancy to glitch when using an external mouse, and this should clear it up. Let me know.
