Question about Dell U0636 Mouse

1 Answer

I bought a new Vostro laptop not long ago and since I first bought it, the mouse has been very difficult to use. For instance, when I try to move a window, instead of moving the window, the window maximizes. I have tried adjusting the settings in the control panel, but nothing seems to turn off this weird behavior. I am tempted to buy a new mouse, but I am not sure a new mouse would change this weird behavior. I think it is a bug in Windows 7. Any suggestions?

How to perform scroll function in laptop without mouse in Dell vostro

Your touch pad should do the trick.
They are called "Gestures". They are set to active by default. If it's not. Go to "Control panel > click "mouse" and find "touch pad". There you will find "Gestures". Activate it.
1. Put two fingers on the touch pad and try to move both fingers up or down. Learn how to scroll up and down.
2. Move those fingers side ways. This should do the "Horizontal" scroll.
There are others, like:
Put one finger stationary and rotate the other. This rotates the orientation of the object.
Try it and good luck.

My Dell Vostro 1014 laptop's touch pad does not work!! The buttons work fine but I'm having problems with the pad. The drivers are up to date and the application used to control the touchpad c

If you have a external mouse, or you can borrow, go into device manager to see if the pad is enabled, if okay! try a system restore bringing the computer back in time before this happened, if still no luck the sensor pad maybe defective, the last option a complete recovery of the operational system to factory setting, this will prove if the sensor pad is defective, or wire ribbon might have come loose from the motherboard.

A few months ago my Dell Vostro 1500 laptop started saying that my battery could not be detected. I bought this laptop new in October 2007 and did not extend my warranty. I bought a new battery and...

Normally the message means that the battery is bad and needs to be replaced. There is a chance the new battery you got was defective and went bad before its time.

The motherboard can be the problem, although it is not common for this to be the case.

I would try one more battery before thinking about a new motherboard, a new battery is under a $100 where a new mobo is several hundred, and usually this is a sign of a bad battery. If you disconnect the ac adapter and it stays on then it is using the battery, although it is reporting that it cannot see a charge. I would guess the battery malfunctioned and is not being able to be read by the laptop.

OK. So lets start from the top. This problem could be related to software or hardware. The easiest way to decide this is by plugging the mouse into another pc if possible. Although the first thing I would try is replacing the batteries with it being battery operated. Also ensure that the optical eye on the bottom of the mouse is unobstructed. Some optical mice also react odd when used on different surfaces, it is always best to use a mouse pad. Lastly if none of this changes the operation, you may want to reinstall the provided software.

Mouse and Keyboard problems

sounds like the electrical connector to these devices is somehow partially disconnected. Must open machine and look at these connectors to verify insertion. Good luck on opening is quite difficult and try to have a camera handy to snap photos of difficult areas for later reference.
