Touchpad stopped working when a friend openned the laptop to fix the DC power pin. reinstalled driver, power cycled, disabled and enabled touchpad, still only works with mouse. keyboard works fine


Most probably, your friend disconnected the cable connecting the touchpad to the motherboard while disassembling the laptop to fix the DC power pin, & forgot to reconnect it back.
You will need to partially disassemble the laptop again & reconnect the touchpad to the motherboard.

Out of nowhere my Emachines laptop keyboard has stopped working


Sounds like it's either the motherboard or you may need a new bezel.

Another solution that may be cheaper would be to reinstall the operating system. Or do a factory image recovery and see if it's a software issue. First check the device manager to see if there is an obvious driver issue. If not try reinstalling Windows 7.

If that doesn't work then replace the bezel.

If that doesn't work then replace the motherboard.

Lost my left and right click capabilities


One of two things can be wrong: You may have to remove the keyboard and reseat the little ribbon cable that runs from the touchpad to the motherboard or the touchpad/keys may be bad--which means they must be replaced.

Dell Inspiron 1501 Touchpad locked up


Check the system setup F2 at start, and ensure the touchpad is enabled, next try an external mouse, see if it works.
If and external mouse works, the touch pad has failed and a new palmrest is needed.

Daughter has similiar problem with keyboard on inspiron 1545


Dont just fall for their promises. If your external keyboard works fine, it is surely a manufacturing fault. Insist on a replacement or a service. Tell them your external keyboard works fine and make sure you sound like a techie. People at those companies think we are dummies. Good luck

Inspiron 1520 Can't turnoff touchpad. Unable to connect to Synaptics pointing driver. Find my cursor in random spots all over. Help!! Thanks


1. Go to the "Control Panel" and double click on the "Mouse" item.
2. Go through the tabs in the "Mouse Properties" window & find the tab where you can set up your touchpad. This differs from laptop to another since it is based on the touchpad's drivers.
3. On that tab, check & make sure that your touchpad is disabled.
4. Click "Apply" to apply the changes, then close the "Mouse Properties" window.

If you cannot find a tab to set up your touchpad, then your touchpad drivers might not be installed. In this case, you will need to install them first.

If the above does not work, then you might consider carefully opening your laptop and disconnecting the touchpad. Most laptops will run fine without it. However, beware that since all laptops are very different it might even then not be easy or possible to disconnect just the touchpad; it's possible that it's an integral part of the keyboard assembly, which means that you will be practically disconnecting both the touchpad & the keyboard.

If this either did not work, then you might consider replacing your touchpad (and/or) keyboard.
