Re: touchpad goes crazy and right clicker does not work
Possibly dust might have infiltrated into your touchpad. If you have the necesarry technical experience you could remove the touchpad and clean it and re-install it. another option would be to replace it or otherwise plug-in an external mouse and use that. Thanks.

Touchpad settings: right click on the touchpad icon on the Taskbar at the bottom right of the screen. Click on Default button, then Apply, then OK. Re-try. If that doesn't fix, then TouchPad ribbon inside the laptop needs to be replaced.
Try the following: 1. If your computer is running on Windows, try to boot into Safe Mode (you need to press F8 continuously upon boot-up then choose Safe Mode) and check if your Touchpad left clicker. If it works ok, then a software problem is causing the Touchpad to delay like that. Try reading this guide to solve it. 2. If Step 1 above doesn't work, try to use a compressed can of air to clean the Touchpad clicker and see if same issue occurs.
If still no go, this is a sign that your Touchpad is already wearing out and it needs to be replaced.
Right click on the open space of the desk top > Personalize > Mouse Pointers (yes, mouse Pointers ) > click the red pointer to change touchpad settings > Button settings > disable both Touchpad and Touchpad buttons > OK
is there a touch pad lock button, that locks the pad? if there isn't then there is most likely excess debris or dust or something under there that needs to be blown out with airisol can. If both of those solutions don't work then i would check to make sure the driver is installed for the touch pad. Good Luck. and i hope it works out.
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.
