Hello Dear,

It seems either the Drivers are not installed or there is some hardward issues(Cable disconnect or Dust).
For drivers you can check (Start > COntrol Panel > System > Properties > Device manager) There should not be any yellow , Red mark. If it is then you need to install the driver first.
If that is OK then you need to make sure that the cable connection inside the Keyboard panel are OK.
As a temporary basis you can just put some Palm Stroke on the Back of Touchpad.. That can resolve your issues.

You can restart also once.

With regards

Dell inspiron n5030....touchpad not working..not showing in device man..have d/l drivers,incl synaptics.mouse device settings box emtpy.enable/disable greyed out.


Are you certain that the touchpad wasn't disabled accidentally from the Fn key? There are secondary features assigned to each of the Function (F1-F12) keys, usually in BLUE. On of them is to disable/enable the touchpad (toggle-type function, do it one time to disable, the next to enable). You press and hold the "Fn" key (next to the Windows key at bottom let of keyboard, then press the associated Function Key.

Touchpad does not work


Locate the function key (F1 to F12) that has the touchpad sign. This is often a rectangle with two smaller rectangles below it representing the touchpad and its two buttons.
Press FN + The touchpad button
If this doesn\'t work, then you need to do the following:

  • Navigate using the arrow keys to "Device Settings" or "Touchpad" or the similar option on your system and press "Enter."


  • Press the "Tab" key until the "Enable" option or a check box next to it highlights and then press "Enter." Press "Tab" again until you are highlighting "OK," and press "Enter." Your touchpad will be re-enabled.





    If no go, then update your touchpad driver by going to Computer (right click), Manage > device manager.

    Look for the touchpad driver and update. If you want to avoid these kinds of problem in the future, then install radarsync to automate the updating mechanism of your computer. It\'s automatic and you don\'t need to do anything.

    I hope this helps!

    Touchpad not active


    Locate the "Fn" key in the lower right or left corner of the laptop keyboard.

    The "Fn" key typically has different colored text on it or the key itself is a different color.


    Locate the function (F1 through F12) key at the top of the keyboard that disables or enables the touchpad on the laptop.


    The key typically has an icon that resembles a touchpad with a finger touching it or a touchpad with a diagonal line through it.


    Press both the "Fn" and touchpad Function key simultaneously to reactive the touchpad on your laptop.


    Move your finger along the touchpad to verify that it works.

    Press the combination at any time to disable the touchpad again.


    hope this helps

    How do i unlock my mousepad on an hp probook 4525s there is no "mousepad" within f1-f12


    Hi a ballsb...

    To fix an unresponsive touchpad on your laptop, reactivate it by using the Function key on the keyboard and the Fn key.

    This process is different for each computer manufacturer.
    If unsure which Function key enables and disables the touchpad, try each one at a time and then
    attempt to use the touchpad after each one.

    A...Locate the "Fn" key of the laptop keyboard.
    The "Fn" key has different colored text or the key is a different color.
    B...Locate the function (F1 through F12) key at the top of the keyboard that disables or enables the touchpad on the laptop.
    The key typically has an icon that resembles a touchpad with a finger touching it or a touchpad with a diagonal line through it.
    C...Press both the "Fn" and touchpad Function key at the same time to reactive the touchpad on your laptop.
    Move your finger along the touchpad to verify that it works. Press the combination at any time to disable the touchpad again.
    Note: Mac computers use "F2" to enable and disable the touchpad.
    D. Sony Vaio Users: Start>Settings>Control Panel>Double click the Mouse icon.
    Look at the top left hand side of the page, at the top and make sure that the "Tapping" box is unchecked, if it is checked then, you will uncheck it.

    Function keys F1 thru F12 don't work


    Keyboard might have gone bad. Try hooking up a external keyboard and see if they work. If they don't then you have a motherboard issue. If they do then it is a keyboard issue. If you lucky it is just a keyboard then you can get one here for 20 bucks.

    Dell latitude c610 touch pad left button problem


    Will your laptop work properly with an external mouse? If so, check your touchpad settings in "Control Panel" by selecting "Mouse". Here you can reassign your Buttons. Try setting your Right Button function to "Double Click". If the "Double Click" function works on your Right Button then chances are you have a problem with your Touchpad Assembly which means it will have to be replaced. Dell refers to it as a "Palmrest" which they will replace if still under warranty.
