Touch pad double click is not working. How to cure?

make sure you have the right mouse selected click start control panel mouse hardware you will see which mouse is selected in xp

I have found that the best way to adjust your mouse settings is to create a control panel in your bottom toolbar scroll to the bottom of your screen right click you will see an array of options select the toolbar option then select desktop

then you will see the desktop in the bottom toolbar select the 2 >>arrow heads then all control panel items then select mouse this is in WINDOWS 7

in XP you will have to select the new toolbar option once you have that a browse option select my computer then control panel then a control panel option will be in the bottom toolbar

for the double click this will be in the folder options follow previous to get to control panel items
click start control panel navigate folder options tick in the double click to open circle

hope this helps

Unlock the mouse in dell inspiron m5030

1) Examine your "Function"/"F" keys and look for a touchpad icon. If you find one, hold the "Fn" key and press the touchpad icon button to unlock the touchpad. Move on to Step 2 if your laptop doesn't support this feature.

  • 2) Plug a USB mouse into an open port on your laptop. Click the Windows "Start" button. Click "Control Panel" in Windows XP and double-click "Device Manager." Type "Device" in the search box in Vista and Windows 7 and click "Device Manager" from the results.
  • 3) Click "+" next to "Mice and other pointing devices." Right-click the touchpad and select "Enable." Your touchpad is now unlocked.

    Installed new HD into Dell 1720 Inspiron after getting the 0146 errr code. Once I installed the HD I began the installation of Vista. It almost finished then the screen went back with the cursor...

    you need to format the hdd first before you can successfully install Vista.

    try booting from cd/dvd by pressing F12 on the Dell screen.

    - Select optical disk drive dvd/cdrw and press Enter
    - Press Any key to boot from CD or keep tapping the spacebar.
    - If you see Windows Setup EMS enbaled, press Enter.
    - Keep clicking next until you are asked "Where do you want to install windows?"
    - Click Drive options Advance
    - Click or select to highlight the partition to where you want to install Vista
    - on that same windows, click "Delete" and OK
    - Click "NEW" and then click "Apply"
    - Click "Format" and then "OK"
    - After that, you may now click "Next"
    Now windows vista should be installed in your computer and on its last boot, it will ask you to create a profile (username and password).

    My Dell touchpad on my Vostro 1520 wont zoom or scroll anymore. The control panel icon with dell touchpad just went and dissappeared

    best thing to do is buy a wireless usb mouse and hook it up otherwise will be a 100 fix at least. Try opening the touch pad screen on the tool bar and adjust it to work again.
